LuckyMe is very proud to present Follow Your Heart the debut album from acclaimed NYC band Cubic Zirconia.
This is not for the faint hearted… a sound hewn from sweatbox punk gigs, drink stained dancefloors and after hours clubbing – equal parts ESG, LFO and SWV. Classifying this ain’t easy… Ethnic Disco? Spaced-out RnB? Acid House revivalists? Maybe all of these This is the sound of the big city- influences and concepts fused together into 13 tracks that let you choose your own adventure through their synthesized diamond district.

And your guides through this yellow cab journey into the Sake-fueled Gotham underbelly Tiombe Lockhart, Nick Hook and Daud Sturdivant. Between them they have been signed and successfully released records on Warner Brothers and Elektra and since linking to collaborate have developed an enviable reputation based on their energy packed live performances all across the country and previous releases on of Night Slugs and their own Don’t Cry imprint.
Aided with appearances from LA Funk kingpin Dam-Funk, Neo- Soul heavyweight Bilal and NYC bass legend Drop the Lime, you’re in for a hell of a trip.

Dam Funk / Computer Jay – LA 7 (ACLA10x10x7)preview+free download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2010 by dk

Number 7 in the series showcasing the sound of two thirds of the MasterBlaster group – Dam Funk & ComputerJay. The ubiquitious Dam Funk needs little introduction. He’s definitely played at a town near you on multiple occasions in the last few years and still has time for his weekly throwdown – Funkmosphere- in Culver City keeping his hood pass most definitely intact. He gives us two tracks here – the first a delicious groover ‘Night Stroll’ and the second a more frenetic workout – ‘3012 Luv Affair’. Flipping over Computer Jay kicks off in an almost ESG-esque vein with ‘Phantom’ following with two further tracks of heavy drums and an array of analog sounds. In keeping with much of the series Jay’s side blends as one packing in a whole heap to his ten minutes. As ever it’s held together by B+ photo jacket.

Of all the figures in the post-dubstep diaspora, few have been as instrumental as Bok Bok. As most readers of XLR8R probably know, the London-based producer/DJ is also the co-founder of the Night Slugs imprint, which has quickly established itself at the top of the heap when it comes to the forward-thinking house and bass music that continues to spring forth from the UK’s long-running hardcore continuum. His place in the canon of UK dance music aside, it’s worth mentioning that Bok Bok (a.k.a. Alex Sushon) is also a highly skilled DJ who is just as likely to pull out a classic house or grime tune as he is a futuristic dubplate. As such, we’ve been hounding him for the past year to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast, and he’s come through in fine style, littering his mix with unheard gems from Night Slugs brethren (Girl Unit, Jam City, Optimum), fellow UK heavy hitters (Geeneus, Ikonika, Untold, Terror Danjah), and a few unexpected jams that still go down smooth—after all, it’s hard to argue with kwaito, Dam-Funk, or Azari & III in any mix.
