So I’ve got this problem; I’m addicted to club music. Dumb, stupid, banging club music.
I bump club music when I wake up, when I’m in the shower, while I’m doing homework, when I’m trying to sleep, when I’m driving to class. Club music is so fucking good these days that I’ve pretty much completely forgotten that “bedroom” music exists- you know, hang out music, pretty music, shit that doesn’t have machine-gun vocals about “tight pussy” or wobble basslines and amen breaks.
Luckily, the man Coralcola (who I’m proud to say is another Boston affiliate) has reminded me of my love for vibrant soundscapes, reverb, noise-y background grit, and gorgeous string samples with his recent single, Egggirl, released on 4/20 sans record label or proper distribution. His productions have given a much needed update to the ambient techno sound popularized by people like the Field and the Kompakt record label, with a lo-fi, fuzzed-out angle and long-format composition. And I’m really not just saying this because my remix appears on the EP, although I’m proud of that one too.
The release has remixes from a number of New England producers and musicians, each of which has an amazingly unique approach to the piece, from straight-up orchestral noise drone, to bounce-y percussion-driven house and drugged-out, late 80s synth-wave.
This just goes to show that sometimes New York is a little overrated- and yes, we bring the heat as well. Check out video for his single above, with direction work from Steven Grisé. And cop that shit for $$FREE.99 over at CoralCola’s website. Big ups to the homie! Here’s a streaming “tasting menu” of what the EP’s got in store for you, and yes, I’m including my own remix because I like and it’s my damn blog:
