The same water that makes NY’s pastrami and bagels so renowned seems to affect our house music as well, as Fabric 63, mixed by Levon Vincent, catches a group of musicians at the height of their powers.
This latest batch of Chicago remixes — featuring Deadbeat, Fred P, Rndm, and Efdemin himself — doesn’t exactly reimagine the material as a Tavi Gevinson ensemble, at least one of the inclusions may turn some heads.
For our 29th exclusive podcast, NYC’s Fred P (aka Black Jazz Consortium) mixed together a two-hour odyssey of deep house and techno. This one cannot be missed — grab it before it returns to the ether this Friday, November 26th at 10am CST.
While making the rounds at my local record store Semesters II on Strength Music caught my eye, not only because of its purple marbled vinyl but because its grooves were etched with the work of Jus-Ed, Fred P and DJ Qu.
While Fred is one lynchpins of the resurgent New York house sound, On This Vibe — fittingly on Esperanza, a Spanish label — goes back in time to classics like Sueno Latino’s eponymous hit or the “ambient house” of 808 State for inspiration.
