Various - Bushwick Is Melting
(£10.99 Incl VAT)
The third chapter of Bossa Nova’s alt dance partnership with NYC “creative support group”. Sisterjam, features brand new heat via Slava (Software, Future Times), Max Mcferren (1080p, SciFi & Fantasy), Physical Therapy (Allergy Season), and M/M (1080p, Pacific Psychedelia Tapes).
Slava’s “Shante” originally mesmerized the Viber community during a supernatural live set at Aurora Halal’s Mutual Dreaming series at 285 Kent in 2012 and has been sought out ever since.After a year or so of friendly reminders, Slava submitted the track and reawakened the genesis
of the Kent Ave warehouse scene; a period when Brooklyn’s art kids, discovered, amongst other things, dance music. The track is foggy, bicurious and fun, all signatures of Slava’s hyper produced house sound with an added Chicago style organ solo to boot.
Max McFerren’s track “Is Sinful” follows with deep driving bass and tight rolling hi hats; a menacing dark number to keep locked in your “heavy techno” rotation. For the past two years McFerren has been burning up dance floors worldwide, from hosting Worldwave with Sisterjam at Bossa Nova to rocking Seva Granik and Ladyfag’s Club†Shade†series. Physical Therapy’s throwback rave burner “Love Schranz” borders on the realm of digital hardcore. Creeping in as chaos distorted, the track levels out just before all memory of control is relinquished with overheated drums crushing a sinister vocal.
Last but not least, M/M’s therapeutic and somber, “Sphere 3”, is a droning, twisting, melody that flaunts hazy synth chords and shakers programmed with care. His biweekly podcast/radio show, DEEP, on New Town Radio, has seen the likes of NYC’s finest emerging producer and DJ talents along with M/M’s own psychedelic mixes. “Sphere 3” was part of a series of songs recorded inside of a suspended geodesic sphere in British Columbia in 2015. After discovering the track featured in a Boiler Room mix by 1080p’s Richard McFarlane as unreleased, uncommitted material, it immediately filled the B2 slot of Volume 3, and thus concludes this chapter of the Bushwick is Melting series with a bang.
