Sam Smith – Stay With Me [Soul Clap Balearic Remix]

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2014 by E.N.

<p style="sam smith stay with meThe latest remix to come from Sam Smith‘s forthcoming single ‘Stay With Me‘ is from US production duo Soul Clap.  Slowing down the tempo and adding in hypnotic synth and drums, Soul Clap have transformed ‘Stay With Me’ into a pool-side, summer track.

<p style="‘Stay With Me’ is an epic ballad of unrequited love, tugging at heartstrings as Sam’s stunning vocals float effortlessly over delicate keys, percussion and strings.  The single is the perfect pre-cursor to the release of his album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ which features a roll call of impressive collaborations from Fraser T Smith, Two Inch Punch, Eg White, Disclosure, Zane Lowe, Tourist to long term writing partner Jimmy Napes.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on April 24, 2014 by E.N.

Dancing On The Charles Vol. 2Boston natives and world-class house music afficionados, Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine AKA Soul Clap started throwing our Dancing On The Charles parties next to Boston´s most famous river back in 2008. Back then they had no idea it would become the inspiration for a now annual music compilation showcasing the immense talent of Boston´s electronic music producers.
Vol 2 showcases a collection of music that embodies the spirit and persistence that fuelled those epic riverside summertime parties, and continues to guide the Boston dance music scene. Soul Clap are responsible for remixes for the likes of Little Dragon and more recently the forthcoming EP from John Newman, as well as colloborating on material for the legendary George Clinton of Parliament fame.
Dancing On The Charles Volume 2 picks up where Volume 1 left off, and features an even more diverse range of music. An overall deep feeling is this years´ theme, as we dive into a 13 track selection from repeat contributors and new Soul Clap Records recruits.

Soul Clap presents: Dancing On The Charles – A Boston electronic music story

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2013 by E.N.

SOULCLAP-ARTA Boston Limerick:

 There once was a scene up in Boston, where things weren´t nearly so awesome. So the kids went to Cambridge where people have knowledge and there the dance music did blossom!

Five years after our infamous Dancing on the Charles outdoor parties helped put Boston on the dance music map and launched our careers into the stratosphere, we’re returning to our roots on the banks of the Charles River.  Soul Clap presents: Dancing On The Charles is a part of the Boston dance music story that shines a spotlight on our hometown and unearths some incredible talent. Born from the same spirit and philosophy that has so powerfully shaped our DJ sets, this is a musically diverse compilation of artists held together by geography representing the wide spectrum found in our hometown.

Some of these song we´ve been collecting for years and have become secret weapons in our DJ sets. Bon Johnson’s ‘From The Heart’, was written way back in 2007 and we included on our XLR8R Boston podcast in 2010. The mysterious ‘I Want Your Love’ (written by an anonymous Boston based artist) was passed to us by our friend Benoit Simon (Benoit & Sergio).  Curbington Digital’s ‘So Fresh’ was written a few years back by a high school friend who we used to play hip-hop parties with back in the day. There´s even a remix of a band called Mystery Roar that we did around the birth of the EFUNK sound, we´ve loved this one forever but the label never released it… luckily, now it’s ours!SCR logo vectors

Then there’s jams from up and coming Boston artists who have been building their international reputation over the last couple years like John Barera whose vinyl only cuts released as B-Tracks with Soren Jahan have caught the attention of the Berlin underground, even scoring them a gig at Panorama Bar. Chas Bronz, who does it again after writing one of our favorite jams of 2012 ‘Renegades Of New Age Funk’ (sounds about right). Our mentor, DJ Kon, who links up with Bosq (his partner in their Nitetime moniker and has an amazing solo album dropping on Ubiquity later this year) for a stellar remix of disco legend Matthew Larkin Cassell. Finally, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t unearth some fresh new talent likeRoldy Cezaire who debuted with us on EFUNK: The Album, Clifflight who may be the future of electro-pop and Caserta aka Joey C, a gifted Boston DJ who has a knack for making classic sounding deep4life house music. WHEW!

All in all we´re so proud of this compilation and all of the talented musicians that made it come alive. Thank you all for showing the world there´s more to Boston than the Red Sox and Dunkin Donuts!

Mario Basanov – Journey,November 26th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2012 by E.N.

- Mario Basanov is one of the main dance icons of Lithuania and gaining big status on the Worldwide circuit for his remixes, solo and coproductions

- ‘Changed’ single (with Vidis) was one of the biggest records of 2011 with close to a million hits on youtube, relicensed for 3 different labels and not leaving MTV Baltic Top 20 for 18 months  

- He won Producer of the Year in the Music Awards 2011 and is in demand from local pop stars for his production

- Consistent support from across musical styles counting fans from Gilles Peterson, Pete Tong,  Jazzanova, Atjazz, Laurent Garnier, Danny Daze, Soul Clap  

- His music has been released on Future Classic, Under The Shade and Needwant

 - ‘Journey’ features collaborations with his past vocalists Jazzu and Stee Downes plus his biggest tracks reworked into new versions.

Mario Basanov comes from a different angle to most dance music producers. He’s one of a handful from Lithuania to make waves globally and has over a decade of experience despite still being in his twenties.

But his versatility is what really sets him apart. His productions have a pop sheen to them sounding as if they’ve been touched by superstars. His‘Changed’ single from 2011 made with Vidis has almost a million views on YouTube and was relicensed to three different labels (watchwww.youtube.com/watch?v=D2Enywte7HM) a prime example of his ability to turn dance music on its head and create long lasting hits in an usually disposable genre.

The Nile Rodgers of dance music, he is constantly approached by local pop heroes at home to produce their records. Perhaps it’s that he’s not afraid to make slow music, often less than 100bpm. Or perhaps it’s his adept use of vocals, taking classic voices such as Ernesto’s in ‘Changed’and embedding them with expansive melodies and crisp rhythmic arrangements.

In Basanov’s 16 track ‘Journey’ he exposes new and exclusive records featuring the vocalists that brought him to the limelight, such as Jazzutaking root in the elegant atmospheres of ‘Under Your Feet’ and Stee Downes who features on the more buoyant ‘Say What You Want’,shooting punches through the vocal lines and spinning magic within its synth basslines.

Basanov gathers many talented musicians for his long awaited polished full length, from the percussive master Rahjwanti for the graceful ‘Slip Away’to the feisty Miss Bee and sultry Athena Radford for the anthemic ‘Like A Child’.

These fresh offerings sit alongside revisits some of his biggest tracks to date with rare versions made especially for the album such as ‘We Are Child of Love’ and ‘Lonely Days’, the latter closing the album in epic style, parallel to a modern day Prince ballad.

His consistent and quality production techniques express a style that is both elegant yet enigmatic. His music sits as comfortably in the worlds of deep house, broken beat, nu jazz, disco, as well as the darker territory of acid and electro.

Deniz Kurtel Announces New Album “The Way We Live” (Wolf + Lamb)& Cross Country LED Tour+Teaser

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2012 by E.N.

Deniz Kurtel Crosses America for ‘Double Exposure’ Tour
Visual Artist and Producer Will Unveil Her New LED Installation
‘The Introspectacular’ While Previewing Tracks From
Her Forthcoming Album “The Way We Live” (Wolf + Lamb)

Last year Deniz Kurtel burst into the popular consciousness with her debut album “Music Watching Over Me” on trendsetting label Crosstown Rebels, earning critical praise for her totally fresh take on house music, and bewitching live audio visual club shows. 2012 will see her once again captivating audiences with her musical

productions and visual art, as her April road tour, ‘Double Exposure’ takes her across the US.

A two pronged tour, ‘Double Exposur
“Double Exposure” is the second time Kurtel has paired a piece of LED art directly with her music, but marks the first time where the audience will be able to affect the experience. ‘The Introspectacular’, like much of Kurtel’s LED work, establishes an isolated space where the infinite reflections and layers of depth, achieved through her use of mirrors and LEDs, create a stimulus for inner-reflection and introspection. Housed in a 6×12 enclosed trailer, participants can control some of the LED lights via the keys of a midi controller, which simultaneously produces sounds, creating a visual mapping of what the participant is hearing and vice-versa.e’ will see Deniz will unveil her new LED sculpture ‘The Introspectacular’ while premiering her album ‘The Way We Live’ at 15 club shows in 12 cities around the country including Miami, Washington DC, New York, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The tour kicks off in Washington DC on April 7 and concludes in San Francisco on April 29. ‘The Way We Live’ will be released on Wolf + Lamb June 4th, 2012.

With the ability to generate a sound and a light with the same key, I wanted to facilitate a deeper connection with the basic senses of the participants while also engaging their sense of creativity,” said Kurtel of The Introspectacular.

Kurtel will drive across America towing ‘The Introspectacular”. The piece will be exhibited in twelve cities she visits on her journey, outside galleries and public spaces. Kurtel will also be playing live club shows in each of the cities, where she will debut music from her new album ‘The Way We Live’, which will be released on Wolf + Lamb in May. The LED piece will also be exhibited outside these music venues.

 

 

 

When discussing her debut album Kurtel noted that she want Her sophomore LP builds on the soulful mystical house of her debut, taking audiences on a narrative journey through the slower tempo spectrum of electronic music. From the hip-hop front and pacing of The Way We Live and Right On, to the haunting vocal strains of Art Department’s Kenny Glasgow on ‘Don’t Wanna Be’ to the Prince like funk of ‘Thunder Clap’, Kurtel keeps her listeners guessing, and most definitely excited.ed to “constantly grow and evolve, and make music that excites [her], hoping it excites others too.” It’s clear that on ‘The Way We Live’ she has followed through on that philosophy. A collaborative album, she is joined on every track a selection of the Marcy All Stars, including Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, Tanner Ross, Thugfucker, Pillow Talk, Voices of Black and more.

Soul Clap the album “EFUNK” on Wolf + Lamb,April 20th 2012

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2012 by E.N.

Once a distant message written in the stars, the wisdom of Soul Clap has been beamed down to Earth in the form of EFUNK - Everybody´s Freaky Under Natures Kingdom – their debut album on Wolf + Lamb. 

Before today there was yesterday and after tomoSoulrrow is the future, but what happened in-between? The dark age of lost-cool, a time of dimensional imbalance when music was devoured by a black-hole of wackness. Now, marked by a solar-flare in the funky constellations, Soul Clap delivers a galactic renaissance to fill our ears with interplanetary consciousness and emancipate our booties from the androids of dancefloor repetition. The days of EFUNK are upon us, restoring dopeness in the universe, as we groove on and move on together in intergalactic harmony.

EFUNK: The Album is not just the culmination of two musical lives, it´s Soul Clap´s statement about the sound of now. After years spent traveling planet earth with only a turntable as transportation and a crate of records as a guide, Soul Clap settled on Earth´s tropical Art-Deco paradise of Miami as the perfect spot to build the EFUNK mothership. Limited to 13 songs over 45 minutes to fit on one 12″ record and operate the mothership control panel, EFUNK: The Album also tells the story of Soul Clap´s journey so far in a concise musical statement that could only be accomplished with the skills of master DJs.

Along their path returning from the outer-reaches to save dance music from the eclipse of darkness, Soul Clap’s pop sensibility captured the hearts of many earthlings. A series of game changing edits, originals and remixes, a 2010 summer anthem ‘Extravaganza’ and edition of the legendary DJ Kicks series saw their reputation reach intergalactic levels. By harnessing the past, they look to the future and their timeless reworks and original formula has led to remixing legends Laid Back, Robert Owens and DJ Harvey as well as modern pop stars like Metronomy and Little Dragon. With summers spent touring the world and winters in Miami training at ping-pong and charting new musical territory, Soul Clap continues their quest to be the hardest working duo in the game.

Time stands still, but traverses great distances on the EFUNK transmission. Eli Goldstein AKA Elyte and Charles Levine AKA Cnyce have locked secrets from the outer realms into its design, only to be deciphered through careful attention to its soul. Help in the transformational process is obliged from their close knit Wolf + Lamb family, who have shared and shaped their journey into the consciousness of the terrestrial. The young Jules Born of Voices Of Black duo injects his raw funk stamp into ‘Let’s Groove On’. Baby Prince AKA Gadi Mizrahi of Wolf + Lamb features alongside other members of the family on ‘The Clapping Song’. “We were just hanging out in Charlie´s bed when this one came together. We all just sang our own versions of the lyrics,” says Eli who contributes the saxophone to the jam. Charlie also plays Kazoo, guitar and keys. Greg Paulus of No Regular Play beams in his magnificent trumpet on the serene closing broadcast, ‘Islands in Space’ as Charlie sings in cosmic frequencies and Eli’s fatherGary Goldstein strums the bass. Charlie’s vocals play a big part of the appeal of the Soul Clap sound. Their ‘Lonely C’ anthem of last year made it onto BBC Radio 1 daytime and 6Music rotation and EFUNK’s‘TroubleTroubleTrouble’ shares a similar vibe – wholly connected and real.

Goddess deities lead EFUNK’s transmission further into the light.Franceska unveils her Janet Jackson like powers on ´Take It Slow´ and Mel Blatt of All Saints fame wrote and sang the lyrics for ‘Ecstasy’ – a typical slow jam from Soul Clap, defined as a record that pulls the body low to the floor and slows down the energy vibrations. Hijacked by a UFO to study the effects of the spotlight over a decade, Mel recently returned with divine powers. “We met Mel at DC10 closing,” explained Charlie,“Her vibe is incredible and the fact that she´s seen it through a pop stars eyes is an added bonus.” Her lucid voice returns for ‘Need Your Lovin’. Originally an edit Charlie created from an intense love for the original, when they shared it with Mel over stargazing, her mutual feelings led to them recording her vocal and replaying all the parts, becoming a reinvigorated fresh interpretation of the rave classic.

Further into un-charted territory ‘The Alezby Inn’ a cover of legendary west-coast electro don Egyptian Lover, features the humorous genius Genevan Heathen, who shares a Boston connection and unleashes an EFUNK masterpiece, a mischievious jam that speaks its own truth, “its strange but I like it!” ‘Let It Go’ was resurrected from an early demo Roldy Cezaire gave to the guys during their legendary midweek parties in Boston. It became a staple in their car cd player, never forgot it due to Roldy´s vibe and innocence, and finally resurrected it for the EFUNK voyage. South African Lazarus Man’s epic ‘When The Soul Claps’ is a staple accapella in Soul Clap performances since he shared it with them. The EFUNK formula beams a mysterious and powerful skyrocket to the stars.

EFUNK´s intermissions flash back to the days of the duo´s childhood in Boston, USA, where they were beamed to earth to begin their journey to master the strange new worlds of dance music. The last decades before the millennium still loom large in their style. As children of the 90s, the sound never leaves their crates and they traverse the globe resurrecting their memories in the form of the infamous 90s Jam events. Soul Clap´s training goes beyond history lessons to mastering all the elements of the DJ: knowledge, mixing, programming, performance and experience. As true conquerers of all earth territory, their EFUNK mission shares a magnum of wisdom, its timeless frequencies bringing new levels of consciousness through time and space to be shared for many moons to come.

Gemini – Tribute Vol 2 (Robsoul, ROBSOUL105) (Preview Clips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2012 by E.N.

March 2011 saw Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings revisit 4 of Gemini’s classic tracks, originally released on Cyclo Recordings in the 1990’s.  The release, simply called ‘Tribute EP’, was all that needed to be said about the impact Spencer Kincy has had on Phil Weeks’ own brand of house music.   January 2012 will see round two hit the shelves as four more Gemini tracks from the Cyclo vaults will be released as Tribute Vol 2.

The release of the first Tribute EP in March helped take Gemini’s music to a new generation.  Publications including DJ Mag, DeBug and 5 Mag all leant their support along with DJs including Soul Clap, Maya Jane Coles, Till Von Sein, Lee Burridge, D’Julz, Deetron, Danny Tenaglia, Catz N Dogz, Spencer Parker, Doc Martin, Charles Webster, the list goes on and on (…and on).

The Tribute EPs prove that, despite no longer being involved in the music scene, Spencer Kincy’s genius touch remains.

5 Magazine’s Terry Matthews on Gemini:
“Spencer Kincy was giant in Chicago’s House Music revival – part of the second wave of younger DJs and producers that took the music of the early 1980s, rubbed it up and dropped it in places like 500 West Cermak, Medusa’s and the Vault. A lot of people who are now superstars of the scene – Mark Farina, Sneak, Derrick Carter, and dozens of others – were a part of that movement, too. Spencer released a number of tracks on Relief, Planet E, Cajual, Peace Frog – labels representing the classics of that era – and he usually recorded under the name Gemini.”

Download:The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble f/ Emika- Pretend (Soul Clap Remix)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2011 by E.N.

Germany’s Brandt Brauer Frick just wrapped up a North American tour in support of their new album, Mr. Machine, and now the band is sharing a free remix of their track “Pretend,” from the Boston production duo Soul Clap.

Grab the track via !K7′s Soundcloud page.

The ensemble’s genre-defying sound fuses minimal techno with classical music, and Mr. Machine is taking that concept and sound to the next level. We recently sent out an MP3 for their track “Pretend” which features Ninja Tune’s Emika on vocals (you can download the MP3 here). Expanding on last year’s debut album You Make Me Real, Mr. Machine adds a full 10-piece ensemble and fuses electronic dance music with classical instrumentation.
