When WANARB Met: Louie Fresco

Louie Fresco chats to WANARB

Mexican producer Louie Fresco burst onto the scene late last year with his Donna Summer sampling track So Good released on Art Department’s Jonny White’s label No.19 Music. The subsequently (and exquisite) remix by Russ Yallop cemented him as one to watch in 2012.

Now, as he’s set to put out the second release from his new label, Mexa Records, a joint venture with his fellow countryman Jay Blakk (of Climbers), we caught up with him to chat Latin influences, Kenny G, Twinkies and more in what might be the funniest interview we’ve ever had the pleasure of conducting…

[Editor’s note: this interview took place before the death of Donna Summer. We’d like to take this moment to say big love and respect to the Queen Of Disco… you will be missed.]

Introducing: Uffe

Posted in New Music with tags , , , , , , on April 25, 2012 by rachaelwilliams

Uffe Christensen

Due for release on Pets Recordings in a few weeks is beautiful EP from Uffe, Colors Outside. Hailing from Copenhagen, the Danish Uffe Christensen is now based in Amsterdam and is set to hold a dear place in your daytime music heart.

The title track, a light-hearted, bouncy affair, heavy with summery samples, serves to bliss you out ready for the somewhat darker but no less stunning I’ll Leave Soon. Its melancholic vocals and slow build-up ensure its place as the strongest track on the release. Meanwhile the ‘Just Leave’ remix of I’ll Leave Soon comes courtesy of Pets Recordings bosses Catz N Dogz. That’s definitely a grower, so give it a chance as it seems to sit quite apart from the tone of the other tracks. It retains the vocals but darks it out further giving a midnight feeling as opposed to the twilight party sentiment of the original. Finally, closer When The Sun Rose lets you get lost in its chugging bassline, folk tinged vocals and twiddly acid noises.

It’s difficult to pin-point exactly what makes Colors Outside so captivating. Its wealth of influences, mix of genres and experimental samples definitely make it must for getting through these rain-drenched days and pretending it’s actually sunny.

It’s worth checking out the video for I’ll Leave Soon, and not just for gorgeous Polish model Kornelia Strzelecka lazing about and dancing in a envy-inducing pastoral setting…

Colors Outside by Uffe is released on Pets Recordings on 7th May 2012.

When WANARB Met: Tom Flynn

Posted in Interviews, New Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2012 by rachaelwilliams

Tom Flynn

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to see Tom Flynn at Dirtybird’s London BBQ and, despite the fact he was on an hour into a 15 hour rave playing in a large warehouse to a handful of (young looking) people, his music caught our ears. It’s a rare talent to draw the attention of sober people in the process of pacing themselves for the long haul. And taking into consideration the context of a party full of many amazing moments- the heat causing Claude Von Stroke to ditch his jeans and walk about in his pants, French Fries playing late ’90s UK Garage, Drums Of Death and Leroy Peppers (aka Christian Martin) handing out cups of water to thirsty ravers and impeccable sets from just about everyone- it has definitely made us want to see Mr Flynn again but playing a more prominent, danceable slot.

In the meantime however, his brand new EP on Hypercolour, People Everyday, is seeing us through until such a time. We caught up with him to chat record labels, his love of Pharrell Williams, the BBQ and just how much his Moog means to him…

Introducing: Toky

Posted in Deep House with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2012 by rachaelwilliams

Toky

Chances are, if you download a lot of deep house podcasts, you’ve already heard Toky. The Hot Since ’82 remix of his track About You is currently making itself known to all and sundry after appearing on Noir’s latest ‘Recommends’ podcast. No surprise there really as it’s due for release on Noir’s label on 30th January. There is another remix by hot tip Fur Coat but it’s the Hot Since ’82 version that’s the big draw here. Pushing what seems to be January’s sound, of deep, down-tempo melancholic house; the remix is the type of track you might miss first time round but then you hear it again and say oh hey what’s that? Then maybe you’ll hear it another time and this time it sticks in your mind. With haunting androgynous vocals coupled with a dirty and deep bassline; it’ll be a 4am killer on the dancefloor for when everyone’s ultra-smashed.

Toky – About You (Hot Since ’82 remix)

Toky’s certainly set for big things this year despite only getting into dance music production last January after a live session with fellow Italian Karm from Tale Of Us. To be on Noir’s label, remixed by two very upcoming acts *and* gained such attention in a year is staggering. And if that weren’t enough, he’s already formed an ace side-project called Superhero with Italian DJ and producer Leon. There’s only a preview available of their new track Drugs And Choices but it’s fucking ace so do check it out. Dry humour laces spoken word lyrics over a sparse beat creating a surprisingly addictive little number.

Superhero – Drugs And Choices (preview)

It’s actually the first track on Toky’s recent Purp & Soul podcast which is well worth a listen and a download. Definitely keep your ears out for more from this man.
