Here’s a mix from *the* Layo and Bushwacka. These guys need no introduction, and this mix is unsurprisingly first class. It’s been dropped in support of their new track “The Longest Day” out now on their label Olmeto Records. The release features an original mix with fantastic, spacious percussion, backed by a driving floor-filling remix by Mirko Longo. Check it out. Seriously. . .Check. It. Out.
Black Van‘s True Love mix is space-age disco-soul from Kris Menace and KoweSix of Moonbotica. This set is released in support of their dazzling new single, “Yearning” out on DFA Records. The single is a dazzling, atmospheric number backed by a remix from The Emperor Machine.
Black Van’s cool vibe is a departure for both artists, who are known more for anthemic, big tunes. On the set, the tunes are anthemic but in a different way–when the Marvin Gaye sample floats out of horns singing about pain and love clearly we’re in a place of classic soul and electrified disco. I always admire sets and tunes that both push a sound forward, but can also glance back without the nostalgia. I’m definitely looking forward to the full length release from these guys! -hear the set inside!>
