Their brand of ‘music for adults’ began in 2010 and was honed throughout 2011 by releases such as Rebel‘s Grass Roots EP and Lati & Jonny Cruz‘s storming Up In Smoke, complete with the magic ingredient to any nu-sleaze-bass package, a remix by Miguel Puente. Only fitting, then, that the tenth release should be a collaboration between their wider family, new and old, such as Wildkats joining with The 112.
Characteristically dark and sexy from Digital Delight label boss Sishi Rösch, this mix is definitely one for the weekend. Very interesting to see that he lists the great man Steve Lawler as one of his influences, as you can most definitely hear the tribal elements they have in common.
Look out especially for the remixes of Azari & III‘s Manic and The 2 Bears – Bear Hug. Also featuring a preview of some of the Puente & Rösch sounds they’ve been working on, with Gangsta Club at 49 mins. Whoop!
Well pinch-punch-first-of-the-month, which as usual means that there are way too many good nights and not enough time. And as for you with the birthdays, there are DJs to see!
So, tonight, go old school with Marshall Jefferson at Fairchild (car park rave), or go see Waifs & Strays for free at That Mixmag Thing #15 at Queen of Hoxton. Oooh and I’ve just noticed Sishi Rösch is playing at the Horse and Groom for Coconut Ritz. Miguel Puente drew my attention to him and together they’re pretty unstoppable (more dates for both of them in London please!). To give you an example, here’s a little video from one of their Sonar appearances. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to post this as it sounds sweeeeeeet, and I’d pretty much kill to see either and both of them play anywhere at the moment.
I always tell myself I’m going to get out of the city in July as much as possible, and it never happens, simply because the July line ups are ridiculous for the whole month every single year. 2011 is heading that way too, with Nicolas Jaar coming live two days in a row at Fabric at the end of the month, Lovebox bringing everyone I love into Victoria Park, and The Nest continuing a fantastic booking job, with Julio Bashmore and Riton next weekend. Bloody good work London.
