Pontchartrain

Hard Love Edits

Repress of this infamous 7" from 2015, originally released for RSD and becoming a highly desired nugget for the slo-mo disco scene. Detroit's own Pontchartrain turning out two incredibly well constructed edits that give Late Niite Tuff Guy more than a run for his money! Both edits glide in on a serene wave, emphasizing their coastal flair across a sub 115bpm groove that's tailor made for sun-kissed days lounging and loving across the beach terraces.

Sounding better than ever on super high quality 45 RPM 7" with a normal 12" hole hand-stamped in Detroit by Peter Croce and friends. 


Pontchartrain / Blair French

Afterlife / Pool

It was Memorial Day Weekend 2016, and the sun shined bright over the Detroit River. Pontchartrain stepped up to the decks at the Red Bull stage at Movement Electronic Music Festival donning his infamous 'Detroit vs. Itself' T-shirt. His first song through the Rane rotary mixer was a dubplate made specifically for his set: “Afterlife”. It’s a brilliantly executed Balearic-flavoured daytime disco rework that warrants the praise of summer anthem that it’s earning.

On the flip is “Pool”, an equally sunny slomo beatdown rework from Blair French. It's a delightful blend of cerebral and soulful, and is finally getting a release after being originally championed by Peter Croce on his Le Mellotron Paris set back in early 2018.

This 7" is pressed heavy and cut loud at 33.3 RPM with a normal non-dinked hole. I have to say it's also very nice and refreshing to see the new school of Detroit roll out something so.... UN-Detroit sounding. Much like Manchester gets stuck in 'Madchester' mode, where every Tom Dick and Harry thinks the Stone Roses were the last important band to come out of our city, Detroit too can easily be pigeonholed when mixing up what's come before it, and it's forward looking, future focussed outlook. Innovation and originality is the key across both cities, not genre confines or stylistic endevours. Big ups the D! 

It's a Detroit via Sheffield connection on the latest Whiskey Disco as Motor City's Pointchartrain joins forces with the Steel City's ThatManMonkz for quad-pronged attack of new disco-house and bumpety slo-mo grooves.

It's inimitably Whiskey Disco through and through, contrasting rich musicality with sound system dynamics and mastering. The label have been soundtracking the tastier side of bar music across MCR and beyond for well over a decade and this latest offering doesn't let up on high quality, easily-digestible grooves for both the floors, coffee tables, BBQs and terraces, with both producers adapting to the format in inventive ways.

Can't help feeling that both producers are looking towards the warmer seasons on this release as all four tracks exude a natural radiance, led by bright brass and funky, palm-muted guitar parts; it's the very epitome of dancing around a leafy lawn in the southern suburbs with an Aperol spritz in your hand and Wet Play's Swayward on the 1s n 2s. Grab yer favourite shorts n shades combo and come join the fun!
