Robo Art

Just about to leave the house, but I have to let you all know about a new -- and long -- remix of My Favorite Robot's tune Wakinda Park by the boys of Art Department (Kenny Glasgow & Jonny White).  Tune is great, and should be taken in by the fans of our blog.

My Favorite Robot will be playing in Montreal on the 10th of December, so if you are in the area - - go check it out.  These guys know how to put on a show.

Cold & Dark Amusement 

Lee Foss comes at us in 2011 with a number of new - - albeit less straightforward - - edits as Modern Amusement on his Cold as Ice EP, which was released in early April on Jonny White's No. 19 imprint.  I have been really grooving on the funky and dark title track Cold as Ice, with its mysteriously dark and eerie feel.  That greasy bassline is just so nasty and cool that I keep coming back for more.  I am sure it will have you doing the same.  Cold as ice, but hot as hell.

Back To The Drawing Board

With a fresh outlook on the future and the past behind me, it seems I am back at the drawing board once again... but I am not alone.  

Canada's dynamic duo Art Department (Kenny Glasgow & Jonny White) was just there too - - according to the name of their most recent release on ever-hot label Crosstown Rebels.  "The Drawing Board", which hit digital retailers earlier today amid much anticipation is another stunning example of the team's top quality work in the deep house / nu-disco game.  The entire 11-track album is nothing short of a firestorm, leaving the listener little time to rest their neck between repetetive neck bobs and shoulder shucks. 

As hard as it is for me to single out my "favourite" tunes on the release - - given that I will be rolling the album non-stop for the next few days - - the tunes Much Too Much and We Call Love were instant faves packed with flavour.

Art Department - Much Too Much (Original Mix)


Much Too Much is a captivating cowbell cruncher, laced with claps and eerie synth lines which add a creepy continuity to the somber, yet awkwardly pleasant vocals of Kenny Glasgow.

Art Department - We Call Love (ft Soul Clap & Osunlade)

I liked We Call Love before I even heard it, mainly because I had lofty expectations - - ones which I could not bear to have left unfullfilled.  It would just be a travesty if a Soul Clap, Osunlade and Art Department collaboration was anything but fire.  Well luckily that is not the case... this tune is laced with some catchy and gnarly hollow bass.  Another Art Department ace.
