“[Seikaly] is a raw talent with a great musical ear. That is why I am excited to put him out on Subliminal and unleash him on the world.” – ERICK MORILLO

The next [single] drops in September, so you’re just going to have to make due until then with this banger.” – YAHOO SPORTS ON “COME WITH ME”

Rony Seikaly – former NBA and current DJ and Production Superstar announces his debut artist album: Subliminal Essentials Presents: House Calls by Rony Seikaly out on Subliminal Records October 19, 2010. This digital-only release will be available on Beatport, Traxsource, iTunes and all other digital download outlets. This will be the first in a series of releases from Seiklay on the venerable independent label.

After years of travelling the globe on the international DJ circuit, the Lebanese-born star, who made US his home on the court with the Miami Heat, now makes his home behind the turntables. With a thumping rhythm that carries throughout Seikaly takes you on a journey from the clubs of Ibiza to Miami, London, Paris, NYC and beyond. This is dance music with global influence. This is Rony’s dance music; in your ears, in your house.

Seikaly who earned the nickname “The Spin Doctor” while playing with the Miami Heat – will be bringing his signature brand of house music on the road with the House Calls US Tour (full dates TBA), launching October 23rd at LIV in Seiklay’s adopted home city Miami.

Seikaly released his first single “Come With Me” on August 3, 2010 which reached the House Top 40 on Beatport. Shortly after that he followed-up with a track titled “Let You Go” which released on September 9, 2010. Originally titled “Mila’s Theme” it plays as a tribute to his daughter. Both tracks are climbing the electronic charts and rocking dancefloors across the globe.

Speaking knowledgeably about various musical eras, Seikaly has an inherent understanding for the music that has inspired him and influenced his unique style. Dubbed “Rony Style” by such electronic music heavyweights Morillo, Seikaly himself loosely defines it as “happy underground.”

Seikaly himself is possibly the one having the most fun in any nightclub. His enjoyment in playing music and seeing the crowd’s reaction is a huge part of the experience. Although Seikaly has been a long time partner in numerous bars, lounges, and clubs around the Miami area (Bar None, Mynt, Mokai, Club Wall at the W Hotel), his talents go far beyond that locality. LIV (Miami), Spybar (Chicago), Pacha (NYC), Playhouse (LA), Queen (Paris), and Amnesia (Ibiza) are a few spots that have experienced Seikaly’s sought-after inimitable style.

Release/catalogue number: NMBRS8
Release date: Nov 1, 2010

Prolific masked producer SBTRKT introduces vocalist Jessie Ware for their debut collaboration ‘Nervous’, released on Numbers on Monday 1st November 2010.
Heralding the arrival of a new UK vocal talent, Nervous is a stirring update on Garage and club based UK Bass music. The combination of SBTRKT’s dextrous drum programming, Ware’s stunning voice and a rude 80s Boogie bassline gel together into a heavyweight production that is set to become one of the most distinctive club hits of 2010.
The closing track ‘Fright’ sees SBTRKT fly solo with a late-night stepper overflowing with Motor City melancholy and pulsing subs.
‘Nervous’ was the opening track on SBTRKT’s showcase on Mistajam’s 1Extra show this evening. Listen here.

As spelled out in our current cover story, Midwestern trio Salem is a “gothy/witch-house/dream-crunk/”fucking hipster”/drag-step/ Stipe-endorsed/post-juke band from no place in particular.” Basically, they’ve become one of those bands that can be whatever you want them to be; the notion of what exactly Salem is threatens to engulf what Salem’s music actually sounds like. So today, on the day the group’s debut album, King Night, is being released (buy it here), we’re happy to focus on the latter by presenting Sleep Now My One Little Eye, an exclusive mix that Salem put together for the XLR8R podcast series. Submitted with a qualifier that states “best listened to lying on da floor or bed,” the mix is another one of the band’s warped journeys through slow-motion sound and lo-fi gloom and doom. Nearly every track—including the unreleased Salem tunes which comprise more than half of the podcast—has been labeled “drag,” which we assume means that the band has followed its frequent M.O. and screwed the song into oblivion. It’s an interesting trip, and one we certainly recommend taking.
