If there's one thing occasionally lacking in the current crop of electronic wonders, it's fun. Fun is what sets Letherette apart, what makes them more than just another act in electronica, and what makes their self-titled debut a classic album. Letherette is, dare we say it, a classic of 'dance' music generally.
The young duo from Wolverhampton have won hearts, minds and feet with four EPs, stunning remixes for Machinedrum and Bibio, and exuberant live shows. It's easy to see why they inspire such enthusiasm; they understand the cutting edge without feeling afraid to let themselves go, and their music is all the better for it. Letherette explores mood confidently, taking in introspective, melancholic moments as well as upbeat drive, and lending their debut extraordinary depth.
If you're someone that wants to enjoy music as much as you admire it, Letherette will put a big, day-long smile on your face.
DJ/Producer from London.
Eli Escobar is the quintessential New York City DJ. Over the past ten years he's built a reputation around his parties, emerging as one of the most talented in the NY dance scene. With a style based on his diverse tastes, Eli subversively drops his influences and personal favorites into even the most commercial of sets. Anyone who knows anything about dance music knows Eli Escobar, and if you don't, you will. What Eli brings to the table in his production, through the looking glass of his career is an understanding of music's sustainability. Eli strives to enhance people's experience with music wholly - through playing out, his blog, the remixes and now full circle by producing his album. It's a natural progression that has seen Eli's following steadily grow, with heightened anticipation for what's next.
Amsterdam native DJ, producer and certified dude Young Marco has been on the forefront of the city's bustling underground scene for nearly a decade. Coming up through several, now infamous residencies, he quickly gained notoriety for his genre-defying and ballsy DJ sets with a unique take on dance music, playing everything from lost proto-house and raw jaktrax to Libyan disco anthems.
Having being schooled by Amsterdam's finest working day to day for Rush Hour, 2012 was the year Marco's reputation reached further afield with just a couple of killer EPs, leaving his name on the tip of most DJs' tongues. After releasing several records on Rush Hour he soon found a home on our previous guest's and one of our favourite DJ's label, Lovefingers' ESP Institute, where he continues to craft his signature zonked out house sound filled with broken drum computers and uncool 90's new-age synthesizers - in a world of it's own, which people are associating with the NYC cult label.
His releases are already becoming sought after collectables with the likes of Dixon and James Murphy dropping "Darwin In Bahia" (Click below) famously at Boiler Room, soughting out many a curious listener. His growing number of remixes range from fellow ESP heads Soft Rocks and Michael Ozone to Afro legend Francis Bebey with many more in the pipeline. Latest singles Later Than U Think / Video Days have already established themselves as top tunes of 2012. Young Marco is currently busy touring and writing with 2013 set for more singles and remixes, a live show and his long awaited debut album on the ESP Institute.
Over the past year Beto Cravioto has become one of New York's premiere DJ talents, bringing his special brand of deephouse and disco to some of the best parties in the city, including his own Kaviar Disco Club nights. His mostly vinyl DJ sets are always a treat & have impressed just about everyone. For how little time he's been around, he's already shared the decks with a wide range of dj's. From Fred Falke to Tanner Ross.
All the while Beto was impressing people on the dance floor he was quietly laboring in the studio, finding his own sound. "No Social Culture" is his first actual release so it was only natural that he teamed up with Justin Strauss and studio partner Bryan Mette (Whatever / Whatever) to bring this slow disco groover to its optimum place.
