Ron Morelli is well-known for his love of Chicagoan ghetto house and the crunchy, New York “graffiti techno” promoted by the likes of Adam X and Frankie Bones in the 1990s, and both of these influences are central across Spit.
Long Island Electrical Systems (L.I.E.S.) is exemplary of the private press label renaissance of recent years. LWE sat down with Morelli to discuss the label’s prolific last year and future plans, his straightforward A&R choices, and his feelings on New York’s contemporary club scene. He also contributed Talking Shopcast 15, an effortlessly diverse and eminently replayable mix recorded before his shift at A1 Records.
