Let Go

Fresh off the back of their debit ep on OFF Recordings, LEFTWING & KODY touch down on ALiVE for a scorching hot EP. ‘Get Down’ is a power bruiser of a track, all muscular drums, big drops and heavy b-lines. The subtler but no less effective ‘Let Go’ follows, a skippy rhythm underpinning the duos tight production skills. ‘Tough Jam’ harnesses the flavour of London’s pirate radio in the 90’s; jacked up drums, head noddin’ bass and attention to deal that will set the floor alight. Rounding off, ‘I Need You’ settles into a sweet groove with cut up vocals to give the package a more melodic send off.

Not Alone

Equal Responsibility

 

Climbers is the Mexicali duo, Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal, who, despite forming just a year ago, have already been making serious waves around the world with a fresh-faced take on house music.

Their debut ‘Law Of Attraction’ EP on Culprit, as well as the slew of buzzworthy remixes for labels such as Lower East, Noir Music 2 and Electronique have already found their way into the crates of some of the

 hottest underground dance acts including Art Department, James Teej, My Favorite Robot Tanner Ross, Miguel Campbell, Catz n Dogz, Death on the Balcony and Richy Ahmed. ‘All Right’ from the Culprit EP has already been played on BBC Radio’s iconic Pete Tong show.

Though they come from different musical backgrounds, Blakk and Deal haven been friends since high-school. Early last year they finally decided to join forces to make music, and they haven’t looked back. 2012 will see further releases for Culprit, an EP on Nervous Records’ newly launched Nurvous imprint, plus a debut European tour.

Climbers’ are fast developing a signature sound: set to classic house percussions, empahitic electronic baselines, old school vocal sampling and atmospheric synth pads that are always pushing all the right buttons and are never less than memorable.

Climbers – Equal Responsibility

 

“Once upon a time, deep in The Cosmic Forest, was a fabled hideaway. It whispered of masked dreams, ushered in hidden truths. Fantasy and adventure were the alchemy that fueled the fire. With moods so vivid you could almost taste them, imagination flew into the night with wild abandon and Spirits soared.

Eventually, as is its’ nature, modernity found its’ own course and wove a path into the world as we know it.

Living and breathing the air that time forgot are two creatures of ageless beauty. Tucked away in their remote Cosmic Forest studio, Psychemagik embody the lust of wonderment and the endless bliss that is musical treasure. Together, they encapsulate what always was and is always meant to be. Welding away by candle light, their passion for composition and seamless production is enabling a whole universe of lush, delirious, existential explosions of sound to proliferate. Come closer…. Take a peek… Be seduced by twilight… Join them in their cosmos and see the world through their eyes.
Let Psychemagik take you by each hand and lead you, blindfolded, into their fantasy world. Open your eyes… Move slowly…. Breathe deeply… What’s before you is a mystical wonderland, sprinkled with magic dust and misted by the tears of the heavens. They will free your mind as the scarf of the everyday falls. Welcome to the place where everything is possible, the place where dreams spring to life. “
