Habituate

distinguishable dance music only!

This is an absolutely stellar compilation and retrospective look at the late 70’s early 80’s disco record label, Sam. We have Harmless Records to thank for carefully selecting the most worthy tracks from the Sam Recordings catalog and repressing them. They are also responsible for another great compilation of re-rubbed Salsoul tracks, can’t wait to see what is next! This compilation has a ridiculously impressive team of remixers and edit maestros at the reigns too. Soul Clap, 6th Borough Project, Todd Terje, Maxxi Soundsystem, Jacques Renault, Andy Ash, Prince Language, Walker & Royce Touch, Runaway, Clinton Houlker, Bonar Bradberry, Volta Bureau, & Catz n’ Dogz are behind the magic! I pulled out my Sam 12″ of Komiko’s “Feel Alright” and decided to rip it to share, but the record is way to crackly. I did find it already ripped at Beat Electric so here is an original free for you to download (thanks BE!).

Listen to the compilation at Juno.

Cosmic Boogie is at the top of my list when it comes to edits and now his label Boogie Originals sees some of the most interesting original content from the likes of Andy Ash, Deep Space Orchestra, Toby Tobias, Cosmic Boogie himself and more.

The Naiad being a mythical see nymph creature it only would make sense that this EP be a deep dive exploration. The Jacques Renault mix of “The Naiad” and and Little Creatures’ “Barefoot” are definitely the stand out on this EP. Look out for this dropping very very soon, vinyl first digital later.

The Phenomenal Handclap Band

Over at Mesa this Wednesday (April 27th) the Phenomenal Handclap Band SOUNDSYTEM will be guests at Scotty Coat’s summer season residency. The 8 person band will leave their instruments at home and instead put their records to good use. The band’s live act is known for their enveloping stage presence and eclectic blend of disco, rock, soul, and psychedelia. Granted their DJ set won’t have the bonus entertainment of watching live musicians but if the music selections for their DJ set is anything like their musical selection for their blog my best guess is their DJ set will be something definitely worth hearing. I’ll be hoping to hear them play some of their own tunes as well. One of their biggest tunes and one of my favorites, “You’ll Disappear,” has got some great remixes by Prins Thomas and Jaques Renault. Mesa is rarely a dancing spot but I hope they drop this one and people really let loose and get down.
