Squirrels on Film with a new 12″ vinyl record, featuring 4 cuts for the floor by Mummy Lord (Justin Aulis Long & Grey People), Religius Order, Steve Summers and a collaboration between C.L.A.W.S., Bill Converse & Tyrel Williams. Black hand stamped vinyl with Red Jacket.
Sons of Traders 002 is an 8 tracks compilation Ep of loosely knit artists that surround the duo Sons of Traders (Mike Tansella Jr. and TANS). Leading the EP, the title track “Rotten to the Core” is a slow stomper with a forceful vocal sample and some various squelches. LA’s Kosmik picks up the tempo with “Murmurs” which features a hypnotic synth loop over a 4/4 beat. On “Chomping at the Bit” C.L.A.W.S. and Tyrell trade off between claps, hi hats and short delays underneath a sinister synth tone. To close the A side of the record is Future Blondes out of Texas with “2020 ultra visions”, a cut that can only be described as a sinister barrage of slamming drums and tones. The B side launches with “The Other Side of Town” by The White Lines, a dark electro workout with vocal samples, dark synths and growling bassline. Frigio label boss Juan Pablo brings us an intricate drum pattern with layers of synths on “Night Drive in Beijing”. “Self Feral” by Chris Mitchell is something with a hip hop swing, heavy drums, various feedback and vocals. Closing the EP is Dragée, a new artist from Haifa, Israel. “Them” features a hard snare that holds together the demented vocals, claps and bassline that develop throughout the track.
Kit n C.l.a.w.s. is a project by two experienced musicians in the fields of dance and psychedelic music. Teaming up was probably one of the better ideas they had for a long time as the music this duo serves us is simply amazing. Deep trance indulging moody house tracks with acid influences.
