Gold Code-The Day After (Jonah Sharp Mix)-128 by extramusicnew
Rafael Zevallos-Crowe, aka Gold Code is a respected DJ and promoter in San Francisco since the mid 90s. With the launch of Nude Photo Music, Rafael was driven to refocus his musical interests into production, making great progress in a short time. With two knock-out live PA appearances under his belt – one at San Francisco’s hottest new techno underground “As You Like It”, the second one at Nude Photo Music’s debut Portland event, and releasing a very well received remix for Sergio Gregori, Gold Code follows up with “The Day After”. With this release, Rafael delves deep into the classic electro sound he helped pioneer as a DJ at legendary San Francisco techno and electro nights like Staple, Impulse, Vehicle, Minimal Mondays, Tokyo Electric, and :Code – alongside Single Cell Orchestra, Basskittens, Cybrid, Volsoc, Dave Aju, Twerk, Freaky Chakra, and many other great artists that were part of that scene. The ominous atmosphere, driving bass, classic 808 rhythms, and insistent analog acid come together in a mix that is both retro and timeless.

The Remixes
As Space Time Continuum, Jonah Sharp established himself as a pioneer in the world of electronic music. His remix of The Day After is a deep and melodic analog hardware jam, connecting with the original through a few choice sonic elements. Jon Drukman, aka Basskittens – another respected San Francisco electro pioneer took time out from his current work with Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto to deliver a fierce breaks-tinged electro stomper. Chris Firenze returns with another solid techno mix, once again proving himself as the go-to techno remixer for the label. Closing out the release is a dubby tech-house reinterpretation by label head Audioelectronic.

Two Trains Running
Gustavo Lanzas – aka Audioelectronic is the driving force behind Nude Photo Music. As Audioelectronic, Gustavo has been writing and performing electronic music for almost 20 years. Working with classic hardware synthesizers and samplers, as well as the latest software, Gustavo defines a sound that lies equally between the spacious sound of Dub, and the emotive electronic anthems of Detroit.

About The Release
“Two Trains Running was a track Iʼd written back in 2000. I came across the session, and was inspired to update it. The end result was quite a bit different, but incorporated most of the original tracks, along with some new tracks recorded from the Waldorf Blofeld and Nord Modular synths. I played this track live for a couple years when I first wrote it, but ended up never finishing it until now. The title refers to a brief but passionate affair between two lovers – the trains running on opposite tracks pass each other on the way to their ultimate destinations, just as eventually the affair comes to an end. Itʼs also a reference to the book of the same title by Andrew Vachss.”

The Remixes
Brun Brown, one half of legendary duo Swayzak, deconstructs the track into its individual elements, and delves deep into bass heavy reverb-drenched dub techno with “Brunʼs Duhb”.

Nude Photo Musicʼs own Dj Caltrop returns with another lush mix paying homage to classic italo and electro sounds, with melodic synths and analog electronic drums.

Closing out the remix is a driving techno-bass mix from one of Portlandʼs rising techno producers, Chris Firenze.

“I love the original, full support thanks for sending” – SOUNDSPACE

“Beautiful Swayzak remix! We’ll play for sure” – SIGNAL DELUXE

“Original mix for me, Brun’s dub is really wicked also,big and thick sounding. Will definitely be playing, this is perfect music for the Funktion 1 system..” – JAY TRIPWIRE

“Loving the synth work in all of these. Moody and modern. Feeling the Swayazk remix the most, but they are all stellar!” – ANDROID CARTEL

“All of the tracks are really good. My favourite is the “Swayzak Mix” and l will play this out.” – ANTHONY PAPPA

“Very solid release! I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Two Trains Running’. The original is sexy, deep and hypnotic, feels like a great pool party lounge-type jam. Swayzak’s mix is very dark and cerebral. The Caltrop mix has a nice gallop to it, I like the retro electro melodies and the twist on the original bassline. Chris Firenze is bringing the heat, this track is going into my ‘virtual’ DJ bag for sure! Nice chugging rhythms & futuristic percussion, really cool effects lurking about as well. All tracks on this release would go over well with me if I heard them out, and I plan on playing the Chris Firenze mix. ” – WESLEY DYSART, Steamtown Records
