LWE Podcast 110: DJ Jus-Ed

LWE got in touch with Ed to talk about the move to self-distribution, as well as the closing of Tape in Berlin, a club that has deep ties with the Underground Quality family. He also provided us with our 110th podcast: a special mix of his tracks (with some guest cameos) dedicated to the closing of the club.

Jus-Ed, Vision Dance

Vision Dance is the moment Jus-Ed has gone from the magnetic but prickly man in the corner to the true blue friend sitting just to your right.

Little White Earbuds Interviews Move D

For LWE’s first video-enhanced feature, we asked Dave Moufang about his earliest influences, favorite equipment, the current state of deep house, and whether it’s possible for him to be be content with what he’s made.

DJ Qu, Gymnastics

DJ Qu’s debut album, Gymnastics, feels like a kind of manifesto, presenting his fully-formed vision of the darkest reaches of dance music across three slabs of wax or one CD.

Owen Jay & Melchior Sultana, Memories of You EP

Regular listeners of Jus-Ed’s radio show and the uninitiated alike will find plenty to like in Owen Jay & Melchior Sultana’s Memories of You EP.

DJ Jus-Ed, I’m Comin’

Despite dividing opinion in its original version, the Aybee and Levon Vincent remixes of Jus-Ed’s “I’m Comin'” are more likely to bring fans back together.

Various Artists, Semesters II

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.

Talking Shopcast with Underground Quality

For the eighth edition of our Talking Shopcast series we visited Bridgeport, CT, home of Jus-Ed and his Underground Quality label. We also provide an exclusive mix by Anthony Parasole, Deconstruct Label boss and one of New York’s finest DJs.

Jus-Ed, Next Level

Although his top flight turntable chops make clear why Jus-ED is better known as a DJ than a producer, the consistently engaging ideas and execution on Next Level assure listeners that he can sit at the mixing desk with the best of them.

DJ Qu, Party People Clap

With DJ Jus-Ed on permanent impresario/wood-cutting duties and Levon Vincent releasing a near-constant stream of contemporary classics, New York house’s flagship positions look pretty well locked-down as 2010 gets cracking. It’s a bit more of a tossup for the underdog slot. Fred P., whose Black Jazz Consortium long-player and singles for his own Soul People Music imprint were among 2009’s most coveted dance records, makes for something of an easy bet, though I can’t deny his talent at cranking out tense, minimalist house trips. And Anthony Parasole, who’s already proven himself a formidable selector, will almost certainly raise his asking price when his first solo production credit drops later this year. But I’m throwing my lot behind DJ Qu, the New Jersey man and former dancer born Ramon Lisandro Quezada. His latest, “Party People Clap” for Vincent’s and Parasole’s Deconstruct Music, has a whole lot to do with it.

Anton Zap, Anton Zap EP

[Underground Quality] Hot on the heels of his sophomore release, Russian house producer Anton Zap glows with potential. He made a splash last January with a split called “Real House Music…” on which he upstaged label boss Jus-Ed with a breezy, hummable track called “Captain Rush.” His self-titled solo EP, also released on Underground Quality, […]
