TEED-GETLOST-Totally Enormous Extinct DinosaursAre you ready to Get Lost?

Film Maker David Teranova joined Orlando for the final leg of his US tour for a live show and DJ Set. They hadn’t anticipated a tropical storm but Orlando’s dry humour and playful nature allowed for some magical moments to prevail against all odds. Crosstown and David have again succeeded in creating a weird and wonderful film to show the true creative force of Crosstown and it’s Artists.

Crosstown Rebels infamous Get Lost series returns with a new volume delving into the more obscure and rare choices from the award­winning crossover dance act and old friend of the label, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Get Lost VI is a double disc compilation full of rarities and cutting edge house and techno carefully chosen and collated by TEED, including a new exclusive track made by him together with Eats Everything that will be released as a single on the label.

2011 has been the best year so far for arguably the world’s best underground dance label, Crosstown Rebels. Having released incredible artist albums by Maceo Plex, Deniz Kurtel & Art Department and the sublime ‘Get Lost 4’ mixed by Damian Lazarus, they now release Rebel Rave 2 as a compendium to their most prolific year to date. The album showcases highlights from the year over two discs and features a stunning DJ mix on CD3 mixed by high flying LA threepiece collective Droog.

Rebel Rave returns with another three discs of upfront material from the Crosstown Rebels recent catalogue, in a similar format to the first edition. Featuring some of the most ground-breaking, critically acclaimed and widely loved singles from the Crosstown stable this year; from label stalwarts Jamie Jones, Glimpse, Deniz Kurtel, Dan Berkson and head honcho Damian Lazarus, to a sea of new faces in Russ Yallop, Fur Coat and Subb-an, and outstanding contributions from two of this year biggest artists Maceo Plex and Art Department plus huge releases from Guti & Dubshape, Solomun, James What, Inxec & Droog.

The collection is a great barometer to Crosstown’s triumphant year. The first two discs are unmixed and span buried B-sides, reedits and remixes from some of this year’s biggest releases, featuring work by some inspirational producers such as DJ Harvey, Guy Gerber, Maya Jane Coles, Dixon, Ewan Pearson, Ivan Smagghe, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Zev (Wolf + Lamb) and many more. Disc three is a superb mix of highlights and fresh material from the imprint sonically sculptured together by LA’s Droog. Hypnotic and alluring, vibrant and exciting, this timeless journey cements a victorious year for both the imprint, and its expanding family of artists.

Born in 2008 as a prolific film series that follows some of the most charismatic and formidable characters of the underground dance music scene as their career takes them around the globe (www.rebelrave.tv), Rebel Rave has become a benchmark for a new coming of age for house and techno music. Put together by global pioneers of the industry, Crosstown Rebels, Rebel Rave is a beacon of kudos, keeping a foot firmly in the underground while carving its own path into the mainstream.

The first compilation came from Clive Henry and for the second episode we meet Droog, a unique three piece collective from Lazarus’ new home in Los Angeles. Droog are Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe, a dynamic trio of producers, DJs and music lovers that have set about instilling their passion into their beat hungry West Coast environment. Droog are behind the infamous rooftop soirees at LA’s Standard hotel that brought the elite of house and techno to the city for the first time.

Now regularly showcasing the best talent and with Steve Bug, Magda, Dixon and Soul Clap all big fans of the series, Culprit sessions are undoubtedly the superior event in LA for cutting edge music. In 2009, Droog started their Culprit label, initiated with the debut release from Hot Natured. Since then it has supported the careers of local talent such as Kenneth James Gibson and Lee Foss (before his relocation to London) and brought early releases from Matt Tolfrey & Inxec and Ovum star M A N I K.

Damian Lazarus established Crosstown Rebels 8 years ago and has created a covert force of nature that continues to dig up new talent and future heroes. Rebel Rave is the label’s flagship calling card and an annual celebration of its achievements to date. Rebel Rave marks the close of 2011 for Crosstown Rebels, while next year promises to be an yet more prolific, with new albums from Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Art Department & Deniz Kurtel, as well as debut albums from Fur Coat, Amirali and many other exciting new projects.

Locussolus – The Album out June 13

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2011 by E.N.

The Uruguay based label International Feel, prominently featured in many best of 2010 shortlists, is following the success of the Gatto Fritto album with their second, massively anticipated Long Player from the Disco Administrator himself , DJ Harvey and his Locussolus project

Harvey Bassett is one of the most enigmatic people you could ever hope to meet. His ‘anything goes, as and when he feels it’ approach to life and music has created some of the most out of sync, synergistic audio excursions of the past 20 years.

From his early Tonka recognition to Ministry of Sound residencies on both Friday and Saturday (so difficult was he to pigeon hole), onto his own no holds barred nights such as New Hard Left and Moist (guest starring Larry Levan), to the infamous Black Cock edits (oh and that Sarcastic Mix), the Disco Administrator has always stayed one step ahead by doing exactly what he wants, regardless of opinion, as an army of one…… a cult leader for a last generation of pirates

Having dipped his toe into the world of the Long Player with Thom Bullock on ‘Map of Africa’ he’s now ready to launch his Locussolus album with Uruguay’s International Feel Recordings.

Last year, Harvey toured Japan (complete with stage diving), Europe and Australia (no stage diving, but a Keith Moon esque destruction of his bespoke DJ equipment as the last record played, to ‘incite a little excitement and danger’) and still found time to fulfill a busy U.S schedule and complete three Locussolus singles. The tracks saw support from as disparate sources as James Holden, Francois K, Tim Sweeney, Trevor Jackson, Rob da Bank and Ivan Smagghe to name a few, as well as being included on many of 2010 best of lists.

The Locussolus album shows Harvey’s full vision, all together in one place, for the first time. To complete the journey, amazing remixes from Andrew Weatherall, Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, The Emperor Machine, Time & Space Machine and own Harvey’s dubbed out reworkings (and straight from the movie John Carpenter never made)….. new track Bloodbath.

This is Harvey’s Tales from the Nocturn if you like, a journey through nighttown, or what happens in Bassett world from Dusk ‘till Dawn.

And for some very lucky souls, a hand stamped, Harvey designed White Label of the alternate vocal Weatherall Remix, ah yes, the legend of Thickums, (sounding like The Stranglers on Mescallin) and new track Bloodbath.
