I had the pleasure of putting down a set for Plastic Love out in Los Angeles. Plastic Love is comprised of Bas Elgharib and Jimmy Maheras, two very down to earth dudes with an ear for all that is plastic and dripping with love! I put down my flavor of distinguishable dance music as always, I made sure to represent OC so I played Steven Ryback’s remix of Bill Withers and Knoe1’s edit of “Where’s My Party People.” I also made sure to represent those from abroad who have showed me some love so I finished out with Jay Shepheard and Tad Wily’s latest track “Hefty Done Me Right” and then finished it out with Jay’s edit of “The Beloved Sun Rising.”

Two of Habituate’s favorite producers, Jay Shepheard and Tad Wily, team up for the 7th release on Retrofit. Jay and Tad ease on in to things with steady pieces of boogie and 80’s proto house. Track A2, “The Electric Model,” really showcases the unique sound of this duo, the out of tune brass synthesizer that chirps in and out of this piece sounds like Tad’s style and the melodic progression sounds like Jay’s doing. The biggest tune on this release is definitely B2. “Hefty Done Me Right” (TW Dub Cut) is a kitschy funked out late night romper. It blends the perfect amount of sexiness and friskiness. If you are wanting more, keep on the look out for a Shep’ N Wily full length album scheduled for release this year.

Some test pressings still available for a really good price Here.

Q: What style of music do you produce?

A: “I’m not a big fan of genres… but if I had to choose I’d love it to be Swamp Pop, because it’s the coolest genre name out there, but I’m afraid it rather fits Beatport’s ‘Indie Dance’ description. Or you can think of it as a mess done right.”

Q: When it comes to music production, what era’s and artists do you look to for inspiration?

A: “No artists in particular, really. I tend to look for single tunes that have something unusual or inspiring in them. There’s plenty of little gems around that don’t have any important artist name written all over it, but have awful loads of character. I’ve got a soft spot for late 70’s Post Punk/No Wave stuff, early 80’s House, or Rap/Boogie tunes and various fusions of these. I’m also a big fan of weird things and small imperfections; vocals out of tune, distorted hi-hats, noisy guitar cables, etc. These things often add up to the uniqueness of stuff, which to some degree gone missing when people started to produce preliminarily on digital setups.”
