After breaking the news last January that the tune about cocaine and ketamine you were all so desperately after was by Venezuelan duo Fur Coat we thought it only fair to pin them down for an in-depth chat. And what better time to do so than just before they’re due back in the UK to play Return To The Future 4 for some bank holiday weekend madness. With big-hitters like Seth Troxler and Tale Of Us also on the bill, it’s truly time for Fur Coat to cement their growing reputation here in the UK…

Still riding high on the months-long hype-wave, Fur Coat’s monster track You And I finally gets a digital release today on Crosstown Rebels. We first broke the news about who the track was actually by back in January, leading to Crosstown boss Damian Lazarus admitting we’d let the “kat out of the bag”.
Fast-forward two long months of waiting and now everyone else (ie. non Crosstown persona and those not vinyl-junkies) can get their dirty mitts on the track and the accompanying Amirali remix.
And the really big news to match this release is that Fur Coat will be hitting up London town for Return To The Future during the upcoming May Bank Holiday with a ridiculous lineup encompassing headliner Seth Troxler AND Tale Of Us AND Luca C of Infinity Ink! Get a ticket now from The Ransom Note before they all disappear.

Early next month sees the digital release of Culprit Records’ first ever compilation, Above The City. Inspired by their legendary Sunday rooftop sessions at LA’s Standard Hotel; it’s the perfect release to compliment the current (and somewhat unexpected) heatwave here in the UK. Listen to it, enjoy the sunshine, and then picture yourself swaying to the beats, on a rooftop with LA’s beautiful house-scenesters. As opposed to peeling off your raincoat and bemoaning the end of summer, which, let’s be frank, we all assumed we’d be doing from here on out.
Opening with the idyllic sounding chatter of birds, it ambles along pleasantly enough with some fairly chilled tracks from LA’s Clovis and London based Mark Chambers & Soho, but, like all great parties, Above The City doesn’t really hit its stride until about half way through. Nikko Gibler‘s contribution ‘Hide From No-One’ starts innocently enough, with a great beat to get the limbs moving that bit more. Then, a saucy little beat comes in over the top, and oh my, when the male vocals kick in… it’s enough to get a girl all over-excited about music again. After that it is just relentless. Lula Circus, if you’ve not come across them yet, are an absolute joy to discover. ‘Mary Jane Loves Me’ is a stunner of a track. If this is a fantasy set-list of a rooftop Culprit party, right now you’d be fairly sloshed, grinning from ear to ear, dancing your arse off. It’s that bloody good.
Drawing things to a close, but not winding things down is Leeds Death On The Balcony. This is totally the point in the party when you’ve realised you’re really quite mashed and you have a perfect bubble of a moment. Drinking with your pals, lighting each other’s cigarettes, taking photos, dancing together. Bliss. Finishing things for us off is half of Visionquest: Lee Curtiss and Seth Troxler. No, they’re not really calming it down either, just sparking those after-party craving with their track ‘Spending Time’.
This is a great first compilation-outing from Culprit, the label set up by DJ collective Droog. Considering that it was two years in the making, it sure ought to be. The signs have been there all along though, with their parties attracting stellar line-ups including Hot Natured, Magda, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky, Tanner Ross, Soul Clap, Benoit & Sergio, members of Visionquest, M A N I K…. I could go on here, but you get the gist as to what makes this so special. Fantasy setlist indeed.

Above The City is out on digital release on the 10th October.

Every now and then a track comes along and manages to sum up everything about an entire genre or movement. Your Everything by Danny Daze, for me, is that track. The genre in question is hard to accurately define; it’s a hybrid of techno – cross pollinated by house and disco – which forms a low-slung, drugged out, yet easy-on-the-ear sound. It’s much more accessible than most other forms of techno/house/nu-disco, hence why it’s so massive on the party circuit at the moment.
Hot Creations (run by Jamie Jones, Lee Foss etc) is the label at the forefront of it, and their latest release is arguably their best to date – which is really saying something. Your Everything, by Miami based talent, Danny Daze gives us big drops which provide the payoff, sinister undertones that unleash the uncontrollable dancing moments, and positive lyrics which bring the accessibility. Wunderbar.
All year this song has been getting rinsed by the big guns (Troxler, Lazarus, Jones, Foss etc), and is widely regarded as one of the hottest tracks of the summer. It was certainly the most notable tune out in Miami over Easter. Danny Daze is due to embark on a European tour very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Your Everything is out now and you can buy it here.

The wonderful Benoit & Sergio are set to release their latest track Let Me Count The Ways next Monday on Spectral. They self-describe their music as “teenage romance” and you get the impression that whilst it’s meant somewhat tongue in cheek there’s also an element of truth there. There’s something about the music that really resonates. It’s something quite down-tempo, something beautiful and something really quite lonely. Benoit & Sergio specialise in the type of tunes that play when you’re that exquisite level of smashed and makes you float around the dancefloor, eyes fluttering.
Let Me Count The Ways has been doing the rounds lately, mostly courtesy of Seth Troxler who included it on his recent Essential Mix for Pete Tong (I highly recommend reading the BBC page for this which describes recording the mix in Jamie Jones’ lounge, waking up his housemates after a heavy weekend with loud techno!)
I get the feeling this will be one of those tunes which will grow on you until you adore it. You can listen to samples of Let Me Count The Ways over at the Spectral Sound site.
