Circling Vultures – Circling Vultures EP [SCS006]

The latest offering from US-based imprint Secret Studio Records will arrive courtesy of Circling Vultures, a project fronted by Chicago natives Justin Long (Hugo Ball), and Ken Zawacki (Dar Embarks). Circling Vultures’ sound is rooted in the hedonistic Midwestern rave scene of the ’90s, formed over a long history traversing the hedonistic spaces of that time—it’s a hardware-driven sound with a DIY punk ethos.

Secret Studio – Grime Time [SCS002]

Secret Studio releases their second 12″ on SS Records, “Grime Time” with a remix by D-Wynn. SCS02 is a tough, dark, acid bassline track that rolls over slightly distorted 707 drums. A heavy kick fills the room with echo like tones coming from somewhere deep below the surface. D-Wynn’s remix brings the original to a classier place in time. Big throwback strings, original bassline work and classic House drums. For Donna Mash Up is inspired by a Secret Studio Dj set. Recreating a live mash up moment that rode Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” over the dark acid bassline and drums of Grime Time.
