Hello again my friends! Happy 2013. Back from vacation in Tulum and on full work mode.
I know I haven’t been keeping the blog up-to-date that much in the last few weeks, and that my friends, is about to change. I have been kept busy producing, mixing, travelling and such; so keeping up with it has been nearly impossible. However, as I said, there are a lot of new and exciting things coming up; so rest assured, 2013 will be full of surprises. Welcome back!!
Here’s a little something to get back into it smoothly…
I very recently made a remix for Mexa Records. Mexa Records is a Mexicali-based record label that has been putting out great quality music lately and therefore I jumped at the opportunity of working with them. On this occasion, the man behind the original is Corey Baker (half of Wildkatz) and he did a really superb job of getting the vibe of the song up-there and clear-as-cristal. I really got the hang of what he was trying to convey ON his original, and so I decided to go on and write a melody and lyrics to it. So, what started out as a remix, ended-up in my opinion as its own individual song, while always respecting Corey’s original concept and aesthetic. It was very fun to work on and record (which I did in multiple places while travelling) and so here it is. It’ll be out on Jan. 21st.
Also featured on the release are Louie Fresco + Jon Lee as well as a remix from my buddy, nice-guy Derrick Boyd aka. Tone Of Arc. Groooovy stuff!
Get it while its hot b*ttttttchs! Pssssssssssssssssss….. (sizzlessss) =)
Shadi Megallaa’s, “You Aint Dancin” in the hands of Nikko Gibler, bubbles and clicks with mechanical precision. The tight electronic funk here pushes against the trends of today’s floor and shows how Left’d as a label is open to any music with something to say. Five releases in and the 8 tracks on show again provide a snapshot of modern underground house music. From the super deep funked up core to the twisted outer limits, the label continues to break fresh talent and put a vibrant spin on todays dancefloors.
Also featuring tracks and remixes by Waifs & Strays, Geddes, John Johr, Mark Chambers, Rusty James, Christian Maiden, Maher Daniel, Jacksonville, Stojche, Matthew Burton, Nick Lawson.
