Mark de Clive-Lowe | One Take // KickStarter

Mark de Clive-Lowe One Take: Hot Music

Evergreen DJ/producer Mark de Clive-Lowe releases the first video in a series of One Take recordings aimed at spreading the word on his new Kickstarter campaign.
The first of four live videos (to be released each week) shows Mark recreating and remixing the Soho club classic “Hot Music” using a grand piano, drum machine, keyboard and two Korg Kaoss Pads.

However, aside from the video teaser, the big news this week is the launch of his Kickstarter campaign to record and release his 11th studio album “CHURCH” based on the famous NYC and LA parties by the same name. Contributors to the campaign will have the opportunity to pre-order the album, receive back catalog USB drives, lifetime show tickets for anywhere in the world, private lessons from the man himself, and quite a bit more!

The Blaxploited Orchestra | The Pursuit EP

The Blaxploited Orchestra - Until The Day

The Blaxploited Orchestra is the latest project from Spanish producer Simon Garcia (Poker Flat, Pets, Supplement Facts), strongly influenced by classic funk, soul, disco labels such as Capitol or Motown, nu-soul labels like Daptone, Differ-Ant or Truth & Soul, plus electronica imprints like Sonar Kollektiv and others.

His first release, “Realize” (Slow Town, 2012), which included remixes from Detroit legend Norm Talley, French finest S3A and Rhythm & Soul, was the beginning of what’s going to become an occasional series of 12″ releases. Next to follow is the “The Prusuit EP” (Compost Disco, 2013), that comes out as a 4 tracker ranging from nu-funk to jazz to soul and includes a remix by Mikesh & Filburt from Permanent Vacation fame. The standout track for me has to be “Until The Day” with it’s infectious fusion of Smokey Robinson’s “Baby, Baby” & 24 Carat Black “Ghetto: Misfortune’s Wealth”.

Release date: October 2013
Cat No: CODIS 009-1
Format: 12″ / Digital
