DJ Absolutely Shit
Pomona Island EP
"A Night At Shelley's Laserdome"; first released on that white label teaser, now the stuff of nightclub folklore - the original DJ Ab mega-anthem given a proper release; destroying the discogs market value of the white label whilst delivering a bona fide and timeless slice of dance music history to those that need fulfilment. Expect rushing vox, tingly melodies and pure ruffage breaks. It's been touched up for maximum grunt too...Tidy! The "Xr2 M6 Mission" sees RL cru get in on the remix tip! In house mastering specialist, LVLs beatmaker and probably the most underrated producer in the universe, Metrodome joins old guard rukus maker, Begin aka James Holroyd and gets frisky after some warm tins and slack zoots in Bosco's studio. Conjuring up a focussed remix that cracks and thuds HARD we like this new version as much as the OG. Two pharaohs please Dudderz - sharpish!
Side B's "Cut Those Tory's Down To Nowt", lauded for causing the infamous White hotel 'flasher' to vacate his crow's nest and hit the dancefloor unabashed, it's hard to ignore that rugged bassline and those gliding synth stabs. Throw in some proper b-boy biznis like live scratches and vocodered vox and it's a veritable tapestry of warehouse music wondertropes that'll find mass appeal at large late nite gatherings. Concluding, “Bang Into Breakbeach”, sourced from a crusted minidisc and dated sometime around 2003 is a track for the smokers and the after party. A chilled instrumental laced with seductive horns and a baggy break, it harks back to that original Grand Central sound and proudly dons its favourite pair of Nikes for the occasion. Head nodding goodness from beginning to end and a beat so catchy fuckin’ Jay-Z’s queuing up to drop a verse or two on it.
STAFF COMMENTSsays: Crashing into the rave revival head first; four authentic hardcore breaks numbers from a total OG. The sleeve is made up of photos from the Ill Eagle Raves at Pomona Island between 2017-2019. There's a full page comic from one of the city's greatest, unsung, pop artists. This is a true piece of history from the MCR underground. Every raver needs one.
