Kai Alce – Day/Light

Kai Alce performing on a rooftop in downtown Atlanta as a part of Wiggle Factor’s Day/Light event on May 2, 2015

Another fun rooftop event from Atlanta’s Wiggle Factor, this time bringing the local sounds of Kai Alce, a handful of photos and a short video I captured using the new hand-held camera. Hopefully more posts like this in the future now that I have it available.

Trevino – 3 and 1 EP (3024-022)

Rather than bore with you my affinity for adjectives, and fill up this website’s beautiful negative space with my rambling, I prefer to let the music speak for itself and encourage you to listen to the stream below, courtesy of the 3024 Soundcloud

After a brief respite from talking about music as regularly as in the past, a combo-breaker here as we take a look at 3024‘s latest effort. Marcus Intalex adds to the impressive list of releases under his Trevino project with this 3 track selection for Martyn‘s label. A safe assumption that the title of the release points to the 3 regular tracks +1 exclusive for digital purchasers of the release, Trevino showing real growth in the realm of acid influenced house since dabbling with the idea on earlier Revolv:r releases such as Debbit. (still a personal favorite of mine)

Like it? Me too, you should download 3 and 1 EP on iTunes / Surus if you’d rather pick up the FLAC downloads or the vinyl copy.

 

Woodlawn – Sweat 1.1

After taking most of 2012 off from focusing solely on music, he returns as Woodlawn with this mix announcing his upcoming Sweat Collective, additionally appearing at the Atlanta monthly Hunger, and will be playing again in January at Detroit’s TV Lounge alongside Helix, Simple, and Taylor Hawkins

An new name for one of Atlanta’s less-hyped but undoubtably diverse selectors, Woodlawn. Having previously contributed mixes to Percussion Lab, and his own Heat ATL as Inferno is no stranger behind a set of decks.

MAK – Bhasa / About You (EMB012)

Bhasa and About You exhibit MAK’s expressive house influences with two deliberately soulful tracks built on solid rhythm patterns and emotive vocal interplay. Two tracks built for the dancefloor with memorable grooves that remain refresh through subsequent revisits to these selections. Uptempo summer selections for fans of Appleblim, Pearson Sound, and Will Saul.

Mak - Bhasa / About You (EMB012)Leeds-based MAK steps up with two new tracks for the latest release from Atlanta’s Embassy Recordings.

MAK has grown quickly in circles through his own productions as well as collaborations with Pasteman, have made the artist as in demand in the studio as he is behind the decks. With a style that has garnered the attention of Ibiza’s Amnesia as well as the Hot N Heavy and Sounds of Sumo labels, it is understandable why we are excited to have an opportunity to present MAK on Embassy.

Clicks & Whistles b2b Shortstack for the June 17, 2012 broadcast of Embassy Recordings’ “Late Nite Tip” radio show on Sub.FM

Petey Clicks (Clicks & Whistles) at Impulse FestivalA very special episode of Late Nite Tip this weekend as I was joined by Petey from Clicks & Whistles following our interesting weekend at the first Impulse Music and Arts Festival in Union Point, GA. More on that weekend in another post soon to follow.

In the absence of Distal and Mite this week, Petey and I went b2b for the full two hours, getting a bit different than we usually do. Thanks to everybody who locked in during the broadcast – and a huge thanks to Petey for grinding through after a month of touring to cap it off with an appearance on Late Nite Tip!

DoubleStack @ Hunger ATL 7 (Mix)

A bit of a warmup to give people an idea of what to expect as we begin to takeover Atlanta’s Lava Lounge each month bringing our sounds for a new free monthly there.

Hunger ATL 7 (Shortstack b2b Double Nil)Recently I had the pleasure of sharing a b2b set alongside longtime Atlanta DJ and friend Double Nil for the Hunger ATL monthly at 529 in EAV. All over the map on this one as we go from house, a brief visit of dubstep, and a handful of rap/trap/whatever the name for southern influenced rap is this week.

Double Nil, alongside Mayhem, host of Service, a weekly event in Atlanta at the Soundtable  highlighting the headier side of 130-140bpm music paired with dinner specials from the kitchen of one of the nation’s more highly regarded gastropubs. Obviously a match made in heaven for me.

Check beneath the fold to stream and download our live set from Hunger, sorry I don’t have a tracklist for this one at the moment but will try and pull one together soon.
