Boris' Golden Dance Classics

Posted by Kells, September 12, 2009 01:32pm | Post a Comment

New Boris vinyl. Some of you are drooling at those words and others are heaving a sigh and moving on. The good news is that it's in the store now, stocked in quantity and cheap! The bad news is that there is no bad news unless you think the title Golden Dance Classics bodes ill, and for some of you it will. The A-side consists of two dance-perfect, disco/electronica trips courtesy of 9dw (the artist who initiated this release as a result of their fifteen year friendship with Boris) and the B-side: two new songs from Boris that check into a crossover grey area wherein some decidedly experimental compositions mix loose, simplified electro dance rhythms with Boris' signature guitar-bloodletting, wall of sound hugeness. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it --- I'm pleased to say I like it very much!

If you're afraid to try it, never fear, Boris will be releasing the first in a set of three sequential picture disc 7" records full of new "heavy" works on Southern Lord by month's end (the other two following in October and December) which ought to pack at least one fog-bomb tremblor for all the droners to nod off to (personally I cannot wait to hear the track "Heavy Metal Addict" slated to appear on the October release --- now that is a song I've been supporting 200% since I was thirteen years old). In the meantime, if you're into that pesky "allkindsamusic" genre, which is what happens to most folks who find themselves working in any branch of the music business for any length of time, you'll probably dig on this quirky split from Catune records. 

And if you're attending the very special Flaming Lips curated Boris performance of their outstanding 2003 album Feedbacker in its entirety this Sunday at ATP New York 2009, just pour a little out on the floor for me, mmmkay. Thanks.

New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming This Weekend:

Antislash
VERTIGES EP 12"
FRANKIE047

"LENDEMAIN DE FETE" is a shaky tool, with deep atmoshperes and a nice flip mid-track to get lost in. Bleepy and trippy stuff. Sick arrangements on the b-side with killer snares and sounds that are weird and twisted. Not your run of the mill techno-tech house here.  
 
  
Ninjasonik
SOMEBODY GONNA GET PREGNANT WHITE LABEL 12" PR01

White label 12" on the hipster club tip. Includes “SHOOT THE LAZER,” a raunchy club tune that jacks the opening to a certain animated movie classic, and “DAYLIGHT,” a bootie remix of the MATT AND KIM song by the same name. Rounding out the 12” is “STIR,” a minimal dancefloor tune with stuttering, drunken style vocal takes.

TRAGEDY PARK 12"
YORE002LTD

VIS184 

This must-see on the live techno circuit in Holland makes his debut on 2020 VISION, with a LAUHAUS remix on the flip. Also includes the song "JOEL STARR." This should be big, following his TOKENS album released this year on key Dutch label REMOTE AREA.

Erol Alkan
WAVES & DEATH SUITE 12"
BNR036

EROL ALKAN & BOYS NOIZE team up for these two tracks, & deliver an electro disco storm alongside an abstract, cut 'n paste techno/acid rollercoaster. First designed to be battle weapons, but the response was so huge they decided to release them!

Frank Booker
PAPER CUTS 12"
UT009

"PAPER CUTS" is kaleidoscopic sun-dappled house music, with production worthy of a METRO AREA record. "GET ON" is a heavy hitting 3am disco cut with a drop that it...total finesse. Strictly limited and pressed on 180 vinyl!

New Dubstep/Jungle 12"s coming This Weekend:

Jakes
JUSTICE 12"
SINS002

Disgusting bass, sinister vibes as cold as ice, and pounding beats combine for a monster of a track. On the flip is "PUMP ACTION" by CHIMPO, with a menacing dancefloor slayer with its instantly recognizable sample of "pump, pump, pump"!

Example
WATCH THE SUN...(JOKER RMX) 12"
DATA221P3 

One-sided limited deal with the synthed-out dubstep wonderkid, JOKER. This is slinky as hell, with fuzzy synths, crisp percussion, and the vocal gets cleverly chopped.

Dorian Concept
TRILINGUAL DANCE... 12"
AFF003

Two club bangers from the Austrian producer. Sounds like "DC microwaved his MicroKorg" on the bumpy, electronic A-side. B/w "TROPICAL HANDS" which has similar Detroit styled synths mixed with glitchy efx but at a more laidback down tempo.



Rob Glennon
NIGHT FREAKS REMIXED 12"
