• SESSION 902: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 02.05.11

    Mixed by Jkriv, Son Of Sound

    Jkriv (Deep&Disco)
    JKriv (Jason Kriveloff) is a man of many musical hats. As a founding member, bass-player, and co-songwriter/producer for the live-house band Tortured Soul, he has toured the world and contributed to staples of the 2000-something deep house oevre. Lately he’s been collecting his forays into the world of DJing and production under the moniker DEEP&DISCO, which aptly describes the sound and style that informs his musical approach. Having amassed a sizeable following of discophiles around the globe through his signature-crafted Disco edits (yes, those!), 2011 will see the launch of Deep&Disco Recordings, a home for both his original productions and contributions from Lou Teti, Blacklodge, Sleazy McQueen, Space Ranger and more. Additionally, J is a lover of small animals, fountain cokes, and long walks through rat-infested, trash-covered Brooklyn streets.

    Son Of Sound (Speak Recordings | NYC)
    If creative synergy can be traced to a specific time and place, New York during the turn of the ’80s would be the influential epicenter for producer/DJ Henry Maldonado aka Son of Sound. Born into a social and economically turbulent, Disco crazed New York City in July of ’71, Henry’s early musical influence would come in the form of house parties. His father, Enrique Maldonado, a Latin percussionist with an eclectic record collection was the maestro in charge of programming a steady diet of Disco, Soul and of course Latin.Henry’s prominent experiences would derive from the Post-Disco/pre-Hip-Hop, generation-X epoch of the early ’80s. Hip-Hop had spread beyond the Bronx and into the remaining boroughs. Disco was fighting for its survival, fusing with Punk Rock, Salsa, Electro and Rap. Electro pioneers such as Kraftwerk, Man Parrish and Arthur Baker laid the template for electronic dance music. Radio mix-show DJ’s such as John “Jelly Bean” Benitez, Red Alert, Latin Rascals and Tony Humphries would serve as Henry’s mentors in the art of the mix.

  • SESSION 896: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 01.08.11

    Mixed by Beg To Differ (aka My Cousin Roy and Nick Chacona), Matthew Moffe

    My Cousin Roy (The Wurst Music Co.)
    Roy Dank (aka My Cousin Roy) is the mind behind the “Wurst Edits,” imprint. The New York label, which launched in 2006 boasted radical reworkings of yesteryear’s clandestine disco by the likes of label head Roy Dank aka My Cousin Roy and his talented friends, including Runaway, who went on to produced acclaimed releases for DFA and Rekids; the multi-talented producer, DJ and illustrator Doug Lee aka Lee Douglas, Douglas Sound and one-half of TBD (with Justin Vandervolgen) and Stallions (with Lovefingers); and Eamon Harkin, part of the NYC party juggernaut that is Sunday Best and Mister Saturday Night. The edits received support from esteemed DJs as far as wide as 2ManyDJs, Carl Craig, Harvey, Erol Alkan, James Murphy, Simian Mobile Disco, and Tim Sweeney, amongst many others. In early 2009, Roy teamed up with designers Josh Clancy and Travis Stearns to take the label’s visual aeshetic to the proverbial next level. Come July of that year, the label evolved into The Wurst Music Co with the release of Brennan Green’s My First House, quite possibly the cult producer’s most dance floor savvy work to date. Wurst has gone from strength to strength since with releases from Neurotic Drum Band, Reade Truth, Great Weekend, and Ulysses. The Wurst Has Yet To Come…

    Nick Chacona (Hector Works)
    Nick Chacona is one of New York’s disco-house mainstays and over the course of his 15-year career as a DJ and producer has become one of the city’s most respected underground talents within its vibrant dance music scene. In a DJ capacity, Nick is as versatile as you will find. He began spinning over 15 years ago, strictly playing reggae but shortly thereafter fell in love with House & Disco. Never one to let the crowd down, Nick’s sets are filled with energy, finesse, and diversity flowing from Nu Disco, House, Techno, Italo and classics—whatever is required in the moment. He has played across the US from NY to San Francisco, as well as Brazil, Germany, Spain, Poland, Romania, Belgium, Sweden, Serbia, Holland, and the UK. His production skills are just as dynamic as his style behind the decks and over the course of his career has spread his skills far and wide and garnered a lengthy discography under his belt. Over the years his productions have grown to encompass elements of sound from across the world of dance music, melding the arpeggiated sounds of Rimini, the trackiness of Chicago, minimalism of Berlin, and dubbed out vibes of Kingston, Jamaica sometimes in the same track. He began producing in 1999 under the Version Eternal moniker for NY label Homestyle Cooking. Since that time Nick has gone on to release tracks on renowned labels Mood Music, 2020 Vision, Ben Watt’s Buzzin Fly, Saw, Dogtown, Bearfunk, and the inaugural release for Prins Thomas’s Internasjonal.

    Matthew Moffre (Drrtyhaze)
    Matthew Moffre, a former (and self-acclaimed) “Shelter head” has been a staple on the scene as a DJ for roughly 18 years. Best known as one-half of the Drrtyhaze duo, Moffre, alongside his production partner have been actively producing since 2006, currently boasting a lengthy discography of original productions and remixes. At the turn of the New Year the team has a slew of exciting new releases on respected international labels such as UK’s Redux and Under the Shade as well as Germany’s Tirk and Redux imprints. In addition to their avid music making the two are frequent guests at parties such as the legendary classic school house-based Play It Loud series. When running solo Moffre goes under the Love Tempo moniker, which he also dubs his monthly party now nearing its one-year mark. His tracks and mixes can be found onwww.beatsandwords.com.

  • SESSION 895: THE BANDWAGON 03.16.11

    Mixed by Taimur Agha,Anthony Parasole(Deconstruct/halcyon) & Joey Anderson (Inmeg)

    Anthony Parasole
    Born and raised in Brooklyn, Anthony Parasole has had a lifelong love affair with electronic music. Listening to radio shows playing the early dance tracks from New York, Chicago, and Detroit that really perked up his ears. His earliest experiences at the New York clubs and Storm Raves really blew his mind wide open. Not content to just be another party kid, Anthony began scouring the record stores for all of his favorite tracks. From the late-80?s to the mid- 90?s, Parasole was also huge into hip-hop. His engulfment in this gritty New York street-music is an influence on his style to this day.

    From 2003 to 2007, Anthony was a buyer at the Halcyon record store. Through Halcyon, a real pillar of the scene in NYC, Parasole made many contacts, and of course, multiplied the size of his record collection by carefully selecting all the best records from the store. He threw the “New Jack City” party at APT with his co-workers at Halcyon, bringing in The Martinez Brothers for the first NYC gig, Slam Mode, MkL, Adultnapper, Nick Chacona, Todd Sines, Brennan Green, and many more. This party really increased Anthony’s exposure in New York, and led to many gigs at bigger clubs, including opening slots for Derrick May, Cajmere, and Layo and Bushwacka. 2008 was a great year for Anthony. He launched the Deconstruct record label with his partner Levon Vincent. DEC-001 “Invisible Bitchslap” by Levon Vincent sold out in one week, and immediately put the label on the map, being charted by Marcel Dettmann, Shed, and Jan Krueger. Hardwax and other influential stores are clamoring for more! Parasole also founded the House-N-Home loft-party series with partner Bryan Kasenic. They’ve already thrown successful parties with Jus-Ed, Brothers’ Vibe, DJ Qu, Fred P, and Adultnapper, and will play host to Move D and other artists from the cutting edge of house and techno music in 2009. Anthony is currently working his own original productions due to come out later this year!
