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 🙂


Episode 55: No Regular Play’s Dedication To Onno

Something for the weekend… Something to get you excited for No Regular Play’s Boston debut with Soul Clap at Midweek Techno next Wednesday (7/15/09)… Something…

…that I think we’ve been waiting for since we met these crazy faukers earlier this year, but they’re so busy being amazing that it took a little while for them to get it to us. Needless to say, it was well worth the wait. Can you say perfect mix of deep, wierd, house, techno, vocals, grooves, whatever? Can you say beautiful? The mix is dedicated to their friend Connor aka Onno, who runs the Cut&Mistake blog, appeared on their 1st EP and got hit by a car while they were getting it ready. Thankfully he’s doing fine now, but this one goes out to him!

If you don’t know already, No Regular Play, or NRP (like NPR, but with the P and the R switched, I know you saw the stickers in Miami and Deetroit) for short, is the duo of Greg Paulus and Nick DeBruyn. Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota (of all places) they moved to NYC awhile ago and are now part of this new generation of American producers that are turning dance music on its head. Their boundary pushing and amazingly wierd yet groovey Blonde Juan EP was released last year on Wolf + Lamb to worldwide acclaim and they’re New Rhythm EP drops in the next couple months (complete with Soul Clap remix :). They do a dope live said and obviously from this mix can DJ like nobody’s business too. Get to swimming friends 🙂

I asked Greg if he had anything else wanted to tell his adoring fans and he said, “Thank you and good night.”
