The third part of our Producer#3 series. Following his recent release on the Manchester based Mind On Fire label, Danny Drive Thru provides two tracks for Producer#3. Eclipsemoonsun is a deeply burnt piece of atmospheric cimematica, smouldering & minimal. Crumbling drums merge with ethereal voices & weightless keys, its 3 minutes of disintegrating funk. Marcus Intalex under his new Trevino alias remixes. In line with his recent tracks for Martyn's 3024 label & Scuba's DJ Kicks mix he pushes the tempo to create a technoid stepper. Its a dusky production in the 130 bpm realm with a warm electro flourish and darker acidic undercurrent.
After including his smash-up of the “death star theme” on Producer#2 and dropping his debut vinyl with the Cakeology E.P in 2010, the green llama aks Mr Dibiase returns once again to Fat City. Its classic Dibiase, all raw, chopped & loose around the lines, ripping apart some spaced soul parts in trademark wacked-out -cosmic fashion.Danny Drive Thru finishes off with his cover of MOP’s “Ante Up”. Included on the Producer#2 cd, the repsonse was so good we had to do vinyl. Virtual voices mix with lo-fi keys and beats. Tongue-in-cheek, clever, funny & addictive.
After four split 7"'s released last year we present the full Producer 2 album. This album is the follow up to volume 1 in Fat City's Producer series which Boomkat have hailed as "impeccably curated". Once again we feature the most exciting elements from the increasingly blurrred boundaries of electronica, dub and hiphop. Producer 2 includes tracks from old heads such as Dabrye, Carlos Nino, Harmonic 313, Martyn, Daedelus & dBridge next to rising stars of the burgeoning west coast beat scene in Devonwho, Mr Dibiase, Low limit and Mono/poly. The UK is represented through Illum Sphere, Mike Slott & Tandy Love together with fresh talent to look out for in Darkhouse Family & Danny Drive Thru. The album is a rewarding journey through psychadelic electro, nu-era hiphop, post dilla slump-funk, slo-mo d'n'b & sleazin' electro-soul.
