Episode 64: Live at Airdrop Late Supper Pt. 1

Right before Thanksgiving we did a mini US tour of New York, Chicago and Detroit and it felt pretty amazing. Everywhere we went we debuted new Soul Clap music and every time people went crazy. It really blew our minds to get such a great response in America, especially at such an American time as Thanksgiving. I’m not going to get into a discussion about the moral implications of t-day, but I will say it’s a special time for family and friends to get together here in the states so it meant alot for us to get so much love in our home country. Now, before it’s too late we wanted to give you, our beloved listeners all over the world a taste of what our pre t-day tour sounded like. This recording is the first hour of our 3 hour, early morning set at Brooklyn’s Market Hotel for Airdrop’s Late Supper. It features a bunch of exclusive new Soul Clap music, some of which has been released, but mostly is forthcoming and never coming out. Part 3 of the mix is a bit deeper for the sunrise and should be coming out on Airdrop’s Airpod in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

Big in Japan?!

There’s been much ado about dance music in our little twisted world this week. To top things off we got some numbers back for Beatport sales on our Wolf + Lamb Edits and much to our surprise, we’re BIG IN JAPAN. Not sure if its because of the Soul Clap Tween-Anime fan club over there, but we certainly hope it is, hehe.

Also, necessary big ups to our good friend Chinua Green for being “oh so current” with his Mixmag subscription, and to the great Jamie Jones for making our Conscious Edit #1 on his chart this month (see below)!

Speaking of big-ups, the princess of BBC Radio One, Mz Heidi Vanden Amstel went above and beyond on her latest “In New DJ’s We Trust” show with what may just be the illest Boston shout out of ALL TIME! Her time here in Boston was such a pleasure, and her DJ set at Midweek Techno, FAHGETABOUTIT! Heidi, you got straight up FAM in the bean girl, FO REALZ, please come back any time 🙂 For those who haven’t heard this last show, check here, the shout out is 16 minutes in and its full of serious bombs AND a piece of her tag team set with Justin Martin from Exit Festival last month.

One last piece of news, we are proud to announce our next 2 big releases! Coming 8/4 it’s our first Wolf + Lamb digital EP (artwork at the top of this post). The release features a collection of three Michael Jackson tribute tracks including two from us titled Michael Went To Heaven (110 bpm) and Michael Went To Hell (108 bpm) as well as a cut from the No Regular Play boys called Things I Know, which features a Greg Paulus/MJ duet (figures). THEN 8/28 our next AirDrop release drops on vinyl. It’s our 4th vinyl on our original musical home (and their 11th vinyl so far) and we’re calling it the Definition EP because it marks the many new directions of our original music. We’re REALLY proud of this one and can’t wait for it to go out into the world 🙂

Back on September 20th before throwing down at the Extraction Release Party at Bar13 (AirDrop actually just posted Crazy Larry’s Mix from the night) we hit up our favorite record store for an instore new disco experience. We just unearthed the link and you can hear the mix here.

Speaking of Extraction US, those flyers you see up there are for two dates on our upcoming tour in support of the compilation, which features Soul Clap and other Extraction artist performances in Miami, Denver, LA, SF & NYC from 11/28/08-12/12/08. The compilation’s release is quickly approaching and it looks like RA took notice. To hear our track from Extraction and more tour dates check our myspace page.

8/23 DOTC DJ Sets Are Here!

If they say there’s no such thing as [cough] bad publicity [cough] then it appears we’ve finally arrived. Big shout to the haters for investing time and money into our promotional efforts! Nice doo doo guys, way to keep it clean and classy.

NOW, to all you wonderful folks who came to D.O.T.C. on 8/23: THANK YOU! You’re probably tired of hearing us always say that we can’t do it without you, but it’s so damn true. It makes us so psyched to have these crazy outdoor dance parties (in Boston/Cambridge no less) that we have to keep saying it over and over again so you know how serious we are. Last Saturday couldn’t have been a more beautiful summer night and despite some technical difficulties with the sound (sorry for that) the recordings of the sets finally came out right. Thanks again to all and especially these guys, some of Boston’s best DJs for holding it down just right. Enjoy!

minitek/AirDrop Remix Competition

Ever since the announcement in May that the folks who throw the awesome minimoo parties in New York City were organizing a full on electronic music festival, the mothership has been abuzz with excitement for the long overdue birth of the northeast U.S.’s first such event. Now as the date of minitek electronic music and innovation festival fast approaches (8/12-8/14), the festival has teamed up with our good friends over at AirDrop to present a competition to remix AirDrop artist and minitek performer Fase Miusic Sender‘s latest single on the label, Lejano Oeste. Even more exciting? We’re helping judge the competition! We haven’t been that impressed with any of the submissions so far, so all you producers get your versions in by September 3rd and if we like it, your remix will be released on AirDrop.
