from Frite Nite on Vimeo.


Talented local San Francisco producer Salva, from the Frite Nite label/crew in SF and resident DJ at Change The Beat parties at SOM Bar alongside Mophono and others, has just released this entertaining yet shamelessly cheesy retro sci-fi styled video for his old school synth driven, funky bass track "Weeeird Science (Dr. Plot's 'Space is the Place' Video Mix)."

The song is taken from the Chicago born artist's recently released debut album Complex Housing, which was unleashed earlier this month by the Los Angeles based FoF Music label. Since then it has been winning positive reviews all over, including one a few days ago on Pitchfork. A digital and vinyl only release, look for it on vinyl at Amoeba Music.

Morgan Geistʼs new project STORM QUEEN marks a return to his roots with an analog approach towards modern house music with a disco pedigree. STORM QUEEN is made for DJs, but doesnʼt sacrifice atmosphere and songwriting. STORM QUEEN owes a debt to classic house music from New York, Chicago and Detroit, as well as disco and boogie.

Listen to "Look Right Through" here:

Ireland's JOHN DALY brings this 4 track EP of house perfection. The title track brings back the feeling of 90s KERRI CHANDLER; "REACH" continues the deepness with a warm sound; "LONG DISTANCE" adds more of a tech texture & "ATLANTIC DRIVE" finishes the 12" with a serene mood.

HOUSE, EARLY 90's RAVE CLASSIC: JAYDEE "PLASTIC DREAMS":

JAYDEE "Plastic Dreams"


Ever since last Sunday at the 14th Annual Clubhouse Jamboree when I heard DJ Spinna spin this classic early nineties house track (which, like most longtime electronic music fans, I own and have somewhere in my collection), the damn song has been stuck in my head non-stop. So consequently, I felt compelled to dig it up and play it on WFMU two days ago. And when I did I got a ton of  calls, emails, and comments from other music fans who shared my love for this everlasting funk-driven house classic from fifteen years ago. Odds are if you went to any clubs or raves or parties in Cali in the early nineites you too also know and love this song. It was released in 1992 on R&S Records, with the video (below) dropping a year later when Epic picked it up. The song was recorded by JayDee (no not J Dilla), the Dutch DJ/producer Robyn "JayDee" Albers, who consequently remixed/re-released it (including in 2004 --see 12" cover above), although the very original mix was just so perfect that it couldn't be topped (in my opinion). Look for it at Amoeba Music in various formats and on various releases. I own it on a 4-CD compilation from few years ago called Funky House No.1 -- one of many it can be found on.
And if you remember hearing this track at some club/party, please take a moment to share your memory in the COMMENTS box below. Thanks!
