new mixset for the RIPECAST

Monday, June 1, 2015

out now! BLR022: Fat Gold Chain remixes

Available at Beatport

Justin's original version of the track is a jackin' Disco House number that was released on his House label Southern Vice Recordings.
B-Phreak unleashes a monstrous remix with his signature spine-tingling heavy bass and gnarly beats. It's a unique contrast between the vocal disco samples and the intensity of the beats and bass. And yet, it works - tried and true on the dance floor.
Capturing the funky vibe of his monthly Breaks party "Faultine" in Oakland, CA, Justin revisits his own track for a Funky Breaks interpretation that gives a little nod to the old school Electro sounds of Hashim and Afrika Bambaata.
Mastered by Don C. at Phuture Trax.

We're stoked to have him part of the family and you'll hear why with the super funky bass line of "Dancing Booty".

The Gulf Gate Project : Toast & Jam Recordings

The Gulf Gate Project is electronic music production duo Scott and Sheldon Gau. Growing up in the Sarasota, FL area, the Gau brothers were influenced early on by the Florida breakbeat scene of the late 90's and early 2000's. In 2008, Scott and Sheldon began releasing tracks under the name The Gulf Gate Project on their own label, Toast & Jam Recordings. In 2010, Toast & Jam had a breakout hit with The Gulf Gate Project – Beezy (Electric Soulside Remix). With support from Crystal Method’s Cummunity Service radio show and BT’s Laptop Symphony radio show, 'Beezy' rocketed #1 on the Beatport breaks chart for 6 weeks, earning it a top 10 nomination for breaks track of the year in 2011 as well as a Breakspoll nomination.

After several more top 20 breaks hits, The Gulf Gate Project relocated to the San Francisco bay area in June of 2013. Since moving to San Francisco last year, Scott and Sheldon have kicked production into high gear with several more top 20 releases, including their most recent release ‘Spanish Montana.’ ‘Spanish Montana’ went #1 on the Beatport Breaks Top 100 chart and held that position for 4 weeks. Supported by the likes of Lady Waks, BreaksMafia, and other breakbeat notables, ‘Spanish Montana’ has propelled The Gulf Gate project into the breakbeat limelight. The Gulf Gate Project is currently in the studio working on their next release, as well as their two man live show, which will be hitting the road this fall.

Not so long ago, DJ Loomer began direct pursuit of his true passion – music as a force for change. Producing original tracks and performing intricately layered breakbeat and dirty electro house sets with Ableton Live, Loomer weaves together complex melodies, uplifting lyrical snippets, and layers up on layers of phat, dusty bass to activate body and mind.
With a growing list of LA residencies — House of Blues Foundation Room, Area 33, Custom Hotel, Zanzibar –- The Loomer can be found rocking dance floors from Coachella to Electric Daisy Carnival, from Lightning in a Bottle to Burning Man. Remix tracks are now available on Beatport and iTunes from Teknical Funk and illeven:eleven recordings. An original LP is on the way.
In addition to producing and performing at events and festivals in the US and abroad, Loomer (aka David Loomstein) produces live events with partner Art Cruz as The Cruz Coalition.
