  • SESSION 913: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 03.19.11

    Mixed by Pets for Less & Bruce Tantum

    Pets for Less
    Pets for Less is a new duo on the disco front, consisting of friendsAlex Fish and Mike Fisher. The two only joined forces in January and share a creative spark both in the studio and behind the decks, so we’re very excited to hear what these fresh talents have in store for us (they’ve also promised to give us a rinse of some of their own, unreleased productions). Both seasoned DJs and producers in their own right, the two share a rich palette of musical tastes inspired by a lengthy number of artists and labels. However, of late they nod towards the Hot Natured nu disco sound, noting it captures their “general love for all things funky and trouble-making.” As innocent and sweet as their moniker entails, prepare for some badass-style disco this time around…

    Alex Fish (aka Holosound)
    Holosound (aka Alex Fish) is one of New York’s best-kept secrets. Ever since he emerged on the scene in 2004 as a two-man production, later becoming a one-man powerhouse, Holosound’s reputation for quality and consistency has permeated many corners of the global dance-music community and caught the attention of discerning club-goers and musicians alike. Following the exceptional success of Holosound’s monthly headlining night, “Citric,” at The Vault in New York City—a night which ran unbroken for four years straight—Alex and his former production partner,Noah Becker, launched Citric Recordings in 2008. With appearances from Tokyo to Toronto, Helsinki to London, Phuket to Estonia and all over North America—Alex has been turning heads and earning the respect of his fans and peers the world over. His unique style and knack for energizing dance-floors has also helped land Holosound gigs in support of many of the world’s top DJs—including Luke Fair, Satoshi Tomiie, Josh Wink, SOS, Kaskade, Audiofly, Desyn Masiello and others.

    Mike Fisher
    A recent Brooklyn transplant hailing from Washington DC, Mike Fisher has been a mover and shaker in the scene since 2003. As an established DJ he has played alongside the likes of big name headliners like M.A.N.D.Y., Matt Tolfrey, Lee Foss, to name a few. As one of the founders of the DC-based promotion crew, Mnmllife, he is one of the forces behind our capital’s growing dance music scene. Currently, the team is transitioning their brand into “Life,” steering away from the minimal sounds of the past and moving towards House and Disco’s warmer territory. In addition to being an active figure in the city’s nightlife, he is also boasts an esteemed background in music production having worked with the award winning artist Deep Dish as their studio engineer for 2 years, where he assisted in various labels such as Yoshitoshi and SCI+TEC Digital Audio.

    Bruce Tantum
    Does the name sound familiar? It should. DJ, journalist and all-round music-enthusiast, Tantum has been a fixture within the city’s electronic music scene since the days when clubs Studio 54, Limelight and Centro-Fly were alive and pumping. Today he is the main club editor for Time Out NY and has probably interviewed more DJs than the number of kernels in a bag of rice.

    He is an essential voice and reliable source for the music, artists and trends within this far-reaching electronic music culture, whether he is covering a new album, party or festival. On top of his talent for the written word he DJs too, gigging throughout the city from rooftops to radio shows and is also a frequent guest in the UK, regularly playing alongside the DJ History crew spearheaded by Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton. Although he doesn’t parade his DJ skills don’t underestimate hits modest profile – this guy has plenty of taste and plenty of talent.

  • 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.

    Mixed by Taimur Agha (BLK|Market Membership/halcyon) & Clockwork(Hot Creations/Life & Death Brooklyn)

    Clockwork (Hot Creations / Life & Death Brooklyn)
    Francesco Leali and Federico Maccherone aka Clockwork met at the age of 15 both growing up in the suburbs of Milan. Francesco’s music interests and qualifications range from twelve years studying percussion at the Milanese conservatory, to a degree in music marketing and artist promotion. Federico on the other hand started as a label founder, later deciding to follow his true passion moving to New York to start playing in underground clubs immediately making a name for himself. Their music is driven by anything varying from ’80s Disco music to chugging Techno. Their sound is mainly characterized by bouncy and decisive analog bass lines combined to rhythmic drum patterns, all mainly inspired by music from the ’60s ’70s and ’80s.
