Just announced from XVI Records, the third installment from the High Praise Edits series is coming in just a few weeks time. You can peep that over on their Soundcloud right chere. In similarish news, the homie Partner Music has started a new edit label and party called Naughty Finger in London. Kicking it off right with some freebie business like we like too, grab it and be thankful. Finally, getting amped for a little disco shindig coming up with the homie JP and another secret thing in the works for New Year’s Eve with Ben. Here’s a classic from Gino Soccio that best displays my mood surrounding the events.
I’m so happy, to find the ‘White Lines’ edit that DJ Boring played on his real-great recent Mixmag performance. The just fantastic, ‘Q-Line’ from Cabin Fever. Dancing to this will be almost as much fun as being faux-mad at JPB for finding it 1st. It was also brilliant to discover another gem in a great mix by Chris Alker. He very graciously let me know that I was looking for ‘London Mix’ by Esa on the Mos Mos EP. The whole release is a delight but London Mix definitely stands out, like a floaty balearic Rhythm is Rhythm. Anyway, I’m gonna get all the pie, all. that. pie. up in: here.
If this first track had a mood it would be big as hell, and if you want proof, look at how it went off at Sugar Mountain when Gerd Janson dropped it earlier this year. Running Back knows this and decided to enlist a few producers to give it a retouch. Janson's mix sticks to the original with some nice additions to it, whereas Paul Woolford squeezes some more 'umph' into his, boasting a dramatic build up and some heavy piano chords, grab that one off bandcamp. Next up is a 7" from Kashmere Stage Band, a ridiculously funky, big-band from Texas, who was active from the late 60s to 78. Kashmere & Scorpio are two just badass instrumental cuts that were previously only available on LP until now, peep'em over here and big ups Athens of the North for the reissue. I'll close out with a new single from Chrissy, as he's hot on the heels of his new album, Resilience, being released. The album is full of old school rave aesthetics, which are evident in Call on Me, with a booming Reese bassline and bangin' breakbeats throughout, but he also keeps it fresh and not overly nostalgic. The albums out in three parts on Chiwax, with the first up for pre-order here, and that'll do it for me this week, till next time y'all!
