Soul Clap bonanza
The Boston based house duo Soul Clap have selected a few of their favorite party rocking jams of the summer to share with the world and they now give us “The Clap & Friends FreE.P”.
“First in line are Wolf + Lamb/Double Standard label mates and Brooklyn unsung heroes Nick Debruyn & Greg Paulus aka No Regular Play with â€œStrange Cameoâ€œ. Their rework of an 80â€²s funk gem is inspired by many Marcy Hotel dancefloor moments and has an oh so classic house groove and fresh bass line begging to be danced to. Next up is a Washington DC based industry newcomer, but after hours veteran, Navid Zahraie aka NavBox. His breakout contribution â€œHe Likes You Tooâ€ is a stunning and emotional rework of an American singer-songwriter. This tune was one of the most magical moments of Soul Clapâ€™s 2010 Sunday School For Degenerates DJ set that had DJ T of Get Physical famesâ€™s jaw dropping and feet moving. Then from over the pond in the UK are the Leeds institution of Mark Caramelli and Paul Hargreaves, better known as Death On The Balcony. A few months back Soul Clap remixed them for their Magic Bag Records imprint and after a few gigs together in Leeds everyone has become close friends. They bring a dancefloor bomb with a sense of humor to the release with â€œCruel Bananaâ€œ. This 80â€²s pop hit gets a monster drum pump and rolling bassline guaranteed to please and cheese. Finally, to complete the release the Soul Clap vaults have been opened to reveal â€œFalling From The Skyâ€œ. This piece was written around the same time as The RnB FreE.P., but never saw the light of day. With 90â€²s NYC at itâ€™s filter heavy core, weâ€™ve built a drum and synth framework that sets an afterhours mood perfect for falling from the sky and of course puffing tough.”
BONUS: Their podcast for Resident Advisor. Phew, this is almost too much.
