The length of the last post would indicate that the U&A RECORDINGS camp is a bit busy. The fact that we recieved two separate email from two different people on the label sort of proves this. In addition to material from Elite Force, recently signed and all-round genre-bender PEO DE PITTE hits us with his trademark beats on his new track ‘Grey Tape’, which pounds the drums and rounds out some speaker-punishing bass.
“What Peo does so well and why we love him so much is that his sound is almost indefinable when it comes to traditional genres, which matters not, it’s just damned good music.” -Elite Force
In the space of just two days it’s climbed into the Top 20 on the Breaks chart and looks like it has a chance of going all the way. Give it some love.
In other Elite Force news, everyone’s invited to come along for a ride October 5th when he’ll head into deepest Essex for yet another live session at Rough Tempo Radio. Meanwhile, keep an eye on his facebook page over the next week or two for several free, unreleased revamps in celebration of hitting the 20,000 followers.
I can’t believe this show is in a couple days. I’ve been looking forward to it for months now. Here are few older(ish) tunes from FEATURECAST to remotely give you sniff of what to expect, although there’s sure to be some wobble and funk and everything in between. Tickets are only $10 – find more info here.
A.SKILLZ uploaded his latest bootleg about three hours ago and already it’s garnered over 2000 plays. His tunes are as much in demand as condoms in a frat house. This bootleg (like many of Adam’s) wobbles and wobbles but thankfully doesn’t come with the testosterone hangover one acquires when hangin’ with frat boys.
For my inaugural post here on Manalogue I present to you French Express 2. A compilation of 11 anti-bangor, but still peak time dance songs released FOR FREE by French Express. I’m not sure exactly the motivation behind lack of price tag… it could be to intensify their effort to battle the “fischer price shit we’ve been hearing lately” with classy and feel good refined house music.
From Leon of FE: ”I’m sending these guys out for free like chinese lanterns, hopefully people will look at them for what they are and realize there’s a lot more than just ‘music’ releasing from our neck of the woods — more like a mindset, or lifestyle.”
The stand out track for me is Jonas Rathsman’s instant house classic “Love is My Middle Name”
While on a three week tour of Australia and New Zealand in April, HeavyFeet got together with their good friend, Melbourne’s very own, Nick Thayer, and noodled in the studio. They round out the bassline in the classic track from BASEMENT JAXX, giving the house tune a slight makeover. “Red Alert,” is the first of their studio collaborations to be showcased, and comes with love and support from us and nearly everyone else.
Peep the tune in the player below, then grab the download from Bandcamp.
Allow me to (re) introduce CYCLIST, the musician / producer / DJ who left Winnipeg for the shine on Canada’s west coast. It seems his plan is working pretty well having landed a re-release of the Double DipEP on HOMEBREAKIN RECORDS. Here we have a small sample for you in the form of “Bass Face” which gets further discofied by HEMINGWAY and NEIGHBOUR & ELAN B.
Before Cyclist moved to Vancouver I asked him if he wanted to help out with a few posts. He agreed and we just needed the right moment to make the introduction. With the new release coming, there doesn’t seem to be a better time.
