Sydney DJ/Producer Edseven has built a rock solid reputation over the last 15 years, sharing the stage djing with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Peanut Butter Wolf, Norman Jay, IG Culture and many more across Australia, Berlin, Detroit and Amsterdam.
Always eclectic, his selections joining the dots between styles and eras with skill and respect – never losing focus on the dancers.
His latest release is no different. A djembe led future soul burner blessed by the legendary London vocalist Colonel Red’s scorching voice. Sounding like a 90’s R&B jam thrown into the future before morphing into a 3am dancefloor blazer - definitely one for all the freaks out there.
The remix package is a massive shout to Edseven’s varied tastes and influences, enlisting a murderers’ row of friends and overseas contacts to reinterpret the original.
Japan’s Grooveman Spot providing a heavy heavy classic Jazzy Sport beatdown version whilst Canadian due Potatohead People flip it into a dripping 80’s Boogie track.
Local don’s Inkswel and Setwun take their version even further from the original… Inkswel’s broken space mix upping the tempo and pulling in Bruk / West London vibes and Setwun’s refreak an acid tinged, ever-evolving broken beat piece.
The two sides to producer Steve White’s music—futurism and soulfulness—sit more comfortably together than ever before on his latest album as Steve Spacek, which balances boundary-testing sonics with earnest, heart-on-sleeve lyrics. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 11, 2018
