Such loveliness it is stumbling upon obscure yet solid labels done from the heart strictly for the love. Gotta give it to West Friends this week with some ace tunes all around. The stellar and always promisingly percussive Medlar & Ishmael's Bell, Everywhere is a fantastic pack of workouts to get all thrusty towards the weekend. Keeping with that cardio, got entranced by none other than Mr. Scruff's lovely MIxMag in-store set at Piccadilly Records. Fantastic across the board, don't think just put it in your ears. Scahtzi Edits 4 just dropped this week also and I'm quite positive it's impossible to NOT get elated with such soarers as that B1 tho. Take care till next week peeps!!
I had the absolute joy of hanging in NYC this past weekend, stopping by 2 amazing (for different reasons) record stores; A1 and Turntable Lab. I picked up a few old blammers like Compu_Sol's Aztech Sol Ep, Gay Marvine's Secret Mixes Fixes Vol 10, and Devin Dare's Get To It, on Stilllove4music. Along with a few other bits, which are a SECRET YA CREEP, it was a mega trip! If you haven't checked out the Ark EP from Super Flu yet, spank yourself till you don't like it anymore and then throw it on and get your damn priorities straight! Werk!
Got some disco groovers to recommend for starters this week, all thanks to Night Shift Spain and Chasse, a Belgian duo that seem to have an affinity for dubs and disco. Peep those (mostly) instrumental reworks over here. Movin' on up, Safe Trip recs announced the third volume of their Welcome To Paradise compilation and I couldn't smash that dang pre-order button soon enough. The series has been a huge hit so far, offering a nice view into the short lived, dreamy, italo house sound of the late 80s to early 90s. Check out the previews and pre-order here. Roundin' out here and bringin' it back home, local DJ/teacher/all around bad ass Kim Sorise sat down for a chat with the Cliftones Podcast, wherein she discusses growing up in Detroit, decades of experience in radio, and Bob Seger's love for her grandparents cooking. Check the full thing out over here. That'll do it for me, till next time friendos!
