Soulclap @ AirDrop QuackParty (Bar13) 5/30/08 – DOWNLOAD

Originally posted as AirPod Nº8 on AirDrop.com, this was the only set that survived the nite after our recorder over-heated and we actually lost the last 30 minutes which is when it got really crazy. But it’s still a very exciting mix of techno/house/garage for our “die Ente” release party in NYC.

Elyte/Soulclap Bday Set @ Midweek Techno (Phoenix Landing) 6/11/08 – DOWNLOAD
Originally posted on the Midweek Techno Podcast, this was my set warming up for Italoboyz a couple weeks back. One of the CDJs was busted so I ended up playing mostly vinyl. Italoboyz set coming to the Soulclap Podcast next week…

Soulclap in XLR8R June/July ’08 Issue

Our first music review from XLR8R’s Nick Chacona and some solid national press for “die Ente” and “The Giraffe“. Can you believe a “Bronx-born New Yorker” is saying “Boston is representin'”?

Here’s the full write-up:

“As a Bronx-born New Yorker, it’s not really in my blood to say that Boston is representin’ in any way, but considering the magnitude of the first releases from the new AirDrop imprint, it looks like they’re in the midst of a real (tea) party. Both releases come from Soulclap, the duo of Cnyce and DJ Elyte. The label’s inaugural release, “The Giraffe,” is a limited-edition colored-vinyl 10″ that features a mix from Franco Cinelli that’s straight out of Lee Curtis‘ twisted tech-house playbook. The second single, “die Ente,” also keeps things on the deep-tech tip initially, then launches into some serious early ’90s-style synth-sax house business that could fit easily into Luciano‘s and Quentin Harris‘ sets. Boston’s hero of the moment, dirtybirds’s Tanner Ross, is enlisted here on mix duties, and utilizes some highly reverbed crystalline synth tones and thunderous bass growls to full modern-rave effect.”
-En Tu Casa, p. 100, XLR8R #118 June/July 2008

Episode 29: The Giraffe Record Release Party

On Wednesday, April 23rd we celebrated the release of our first record with a blow out, check videos, at our weekly techno residency at Phoenix Landing in Cambridge. Huge thank you to all those who supported that night and earlier at the L.A.B., Allston listening party.

Biggest thank you to those who have purchased a copy of “The Giraffe”, vinyl has been flying off the shelf at records stores and online shops (like Downtown304, Juno, Phonica and Decks) and is almost sold out. Luckily we’ve saved some for sale in our new Soulclap Shop!

Lastly, shout out to On The Download who posted our Great White Hope III promo mix as last week’s “mp3 of the week”. Big up Wayne&Wax on the 451st linkthink. Great White Hope III is also available for preview on Play.FM

Minimaril’s Samba

Minimaril - Samba EP

Minimaril is a new homey from Venezuela by way of Buenos Aires. He’s super tight with Paulo from AirDrop and turns out like a new track a day. His debut was his “Too Young To Be Famous” track released last month on AirDrop’s Extraction LP (which if you don’t have you should buy immediately), but the craziest thing about Minimaril is that he’s only 19 years old. He’s already been DJing for 5 years and his productions are uniquely funky minimal so we’re really looking forward to hearing more from one of AirDrop’s many young guns. Minimaril’s first solo release is the Samba EP, it’s out now as AirDrop Digi 001 exclusively on Juno Download and we had the privilege of turning out a remix for the release. Eventually we’ll explain why we called it the Nice’n’Ripe Rub, but for now you gotta try to figure it out yourself *GUNSHOT*.
