After about 8+ records in, the flavorful deep house label Outplay (run by the duo Fouk) has been lovely enough to make their catalog available digitally. Tendencies have it for me to begin collecting from labels I have a lot of faith in, this being one of them. Execution of warming up a vibe to carry it into party time is done with a touch of swing or bounce that's almost infectious every time. You can grab that Dutch dopeness over at Traxsource to help get your weekend churning at the drop of a dime.
Looks like there is another one on the label Life Is For Living dropped this week, after Roman Rauch and Demuja came strong on the first two, it's Shy Time's time to shine. Disco soulful goodness is on the menu this go around and by the looks of it, it already sold out on Juno. These glittery vibes were too good to pass up so hit up Discogs if you're in need!! Peace!!
Sometimes, when you're little and you can't sleep, you wander downstairs to get some water. There's funky smells coming from the basement and the distant sound of movement on a leather office chair, and the distinct sound rhythmic pulse of a tapping foot. Take a peek down there right now, and walk into freaky-cosmic-dad-jazz with Schvitz Edits 001. Get some quality sounds in to you soul with sonic sculpture genius Robert Babitz, who's 'Everything Will Be Alright' drops tomorrow. If someone calls you weird, take it as a compliment it means they can't understand you, and nothing interesting is easy to understand. Renote & Ciskoted get it...
It's been a cold and rainy week around cosmic HQ this week, so I gotta start off with a release to match the mood. LB aka Labat's EP for Wolf Music Recordings came through with just that, offering plenty of pretty Rhodes piano chords and deep basslines to match the vibe. Pick up those four tracks on wax over here. Taking it back a little (it's throwback Thursday after all), my repress of Mood II Swing's classic, Do It Your Way, came in this week via Groove On. Truly timeless works in the field of deepness, not much more I can say that hasn't already been said, but give All Night Long a listen if you're unfamiliar. Wrappin' up here, Nylon magazine released a piece earlier this week with short interviews from 7 different music producers who happen to be women. Each one has great advice for any burgeoning producers, but the amount of times you read about the same negative experiences is disheartening to say the least. All in all, it really just illustrates the simple point to members of the dance music majority, listen more. Read that in full here and start using inclusion riders!! Till next week friendos.
