Foolboyz debut release

Foolboyz debut release on East Recordings is in stores now. And what a sick double-A single it is. One side one you have the retro deep house of I Wanna Take Off with its Mantronix-style bass and vocals chops, and on the flip the future house of Hearts Stood Still with its eerie pitched up vocal and Breach-style square wave bass. We’re expecting a lot from these guys over the next year.

Foolboyz Guest Mix

In anticipation of the launch of their debut release on East Recordings we got Foolboyz in to record a special mix for us and, boy, were the results special.

Marshall Jefferson at ADE

We’ve been at the Amsterdam Dance Event all week soaking up the latest in all things dance music. One of the highlights was the Beatport Q&A session with Marshall Jefferson. The “Godfather of House” spoke about everything from his early days in Chicago to the current rise in EDM; and all delivered with is trademark sense of humour.

It’s now nearly 30 years since Move Your Body was released and this landmark found Marshall in reflective mood: when asked about what’s the main difference between the scene now and back in the day he commented on how “crowded” dance music is today…apparently there are now 35,000 releases per week on Beatport compared to the twenty or so dance records released when Marshall started in the 80s.

The rise in popularity of EDM has trickled through to house music, however, and Marshall has had his busiest three years as a DJ. This has not impacted on his studio time though and fans of Ten City will be delighted to hear that the act are re-forming and will be releasing an album next year.
