Mix :: The Revenge – 25 Years Is A F**king Long Time Underground (2012)

August 22nd, 2012 No comments
 
The label "Instruments Of Rapture" recently bit the big one, huge loss considering how many exquisite selections they put out in just a 3-year period... but still we get a lovely mix from The Revenge celebrating 25 long ones at Glasgow's legendary Sub Club!



The Revenge blurb - "It's hard to put into words what the Sub Club means to me. Harri, Domenic, Keith & Jonnie have been guiding lights in the art of DJing in my world. The club is the perfect size with a DJ booth on the same level as the dancefloor and a killer sound system. When I first started going, the sign of a good night for me was bleeding knuckles from punching the roof repeatedly during certain records. I've calmed down a bit now ... but I still like to get semi-involved on a weekend off. Tenth best club in the world? ... I think they need to shift it up nine places."

For me, definitely the highlight of the Fatboy Slim party at Potato Head Beach Club. Stevie G. opens up for a full 2 hour set that's nothing short of party rocking music. CRU "Just Another Case"?? Enjoy.

Masters At Work :: Live @ 103 Harriet (part 3)

August 1st, 2012 No comments

After a one year hiatus on the blog, I'm proud to say that we're back in business.  There's no better way to kick things off than with the legends Masters at Work -- Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega.  If there were a  House Music Hall of Fame, these guys would be charter members.  Earlier this year they performed at 103 Harriet in San Francisco, California.  Luckily Red Bull Music Academy recorded the set.  I have all three sets ready for your listening pleasure.  The mix starts out with many classic MAW tunes and then about 40% in, the set shifts to some newer tunes.  Overall it is an A+ performance in which I wish I were present at that party.

Here's the synopsis from Amoeba:
Their name says it all – Masters At Work. "Little Louie” Vega and Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez celebrate 20 years together, shepherding dance music down new paths with their inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms. The two native New Yorkers have amassed an overwhelming body of work in that time, one that includes hundreds of original productions, remixes, and side projects, redefining the way we think of music in clubs. They defiantly mix everything they can find – house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz – into a universal groove. And in doing so, MAW has become a cultural mélange unto itself, emblematic of the multicultural society in which we live.

ENJOY...
