Hooollllyyyy cow. If things couldn’t be shaping up for a great year in music, a producer that I enjoy very much, Felix Leifur, is squared away to begin a new vinyl series with Lagaffe Tales. It’ll be called BROT and will be focused on putting out alternative styles of dance music, not only that, there’s a told THREE releases coming out THIS YEAR. Beeeyyond stoked! Along with that, there’s a pretty stellar weekend ahead here in Louisville and its dealt some choice cuts in my lap to approach it with. From Sage to Sir S’qui or this classy thing from back in ‘02 on 20:20 Vision, the vibe foundation will be laid sturdy and strong. Hell, we’re bound to even hit them with Primitive Trust’s ‘Power On.’ Now, y’all go eat your wheaties and I’ll holler next week.
Keep on moving, forever! That’s the damn fine advice from Audiobooks on their big hitter ‘Dance Your Life Away’ out now on Heavenly with a dark-room friendly mix from, big poppa, Andrew Weatherall. This week, take pause, pay attention to self -care and think about the art of declining. Martin Georgi is here to remind you that while saying yes to the universe is good practice, on a day to day basis, you can value your time and know it ok to - ‘SAY NO’. Alright let’s finish on a mad one, face-melting vibes on Shawlands Arcade, will get you up there! See ya soon! x
New York disco heavyweights Escort are back on the PR grind for their new album, and they called on a fellow native New Yorker for their new single, "City Lights", featuring Fonda Rae. Tastefully done all around, no element sticks out anymore than usual except for that thick bassline of course, so I'm excited to peep the whole album. The whole thing should be out in mid-April, but check out the visuals to that one here. Taking it back just a second, I stumbled across a Mister Saturday Night 12" from Esteban Adame that's been sending me as of late, the whole release rides the thin line between deep and NY garage, boasting serene chords and bouncy drum programming, the Mayan Basement EP has all your classic/contemporary house fixins covered (minus gospel/diva vocals). I'll close out with a really interesting article about one of the most known unknown rave tracks, a distorted acid techno blammer from Pump Panel. Not much was known about the "Blood Rave" song that was featured in the first Blade movie, but RBMA has an excellent article on the history of that one for all of my dance music dorks. Till next time y'all!
