Danced Til Midnight - Real Love EP

Out today! Cop the EP here.

Danced Til Midnight is the brainchild of DJ, producer and musician Andy Anderson. Since 2015 the band has been releasing modern funk tracks and collaborating with a range of artists established and new, including Tall Black Guy, The Revenge and Egyptian Lover. They return to 2020 with the Real Love EP. The release combines that uncut funk with a pair of deep house groovers in the form of remixes of the title track. Fusing the funk band aesthetic of the original versions with the reworks from two vibrant and innovative house producers makes for a heady mix.

Side A carries the original funk renditions by Danced Til Midnight. Real Love combines afrobeat-inspired rhythms with soulful vocals and a Sun Ra- like soundscape. The second cut, Top Shelf Liquor, continues the psychedelia-infused excursions this time underpinned by a P-Funk groove, jazzy sax riffing and a lyrical commentary delivered with soul power.

The flipside contains the house re-visions of the title track.

Kaytronik’s Hornzy Dub delivers a jackin’ and deep interpretation of the track; layering Chicago House-inflected beats and saucy sax reminiscent of Cajmere with the supremely soulful vocals whilst setting these elements against a brooding, sultry soundscape. This remix is full of the Baltimore flavour and signature bounce we have come to expect from Kaytronik.

Byron The Aquarius’ Remix is a jazzy, deep house rendition of the track. Underpinned by a heavy house beat with a hard 4 to the floor kick, the combination of hypnotic pads, wandering sax and fleet-footed percussion make this a tune for both the rapturous dancefloor and sophisticated party goers alike. The chopped up vocal stabs also give this mix the feel of house music from the dawn of the Balearic explosion.

THE JIMI WALLET

November 30, 2020

Designing a wallet seems simple enough. We all need a place to put cash, cards, and an endless stream of receipts. With the JIMI wallet I wanted to provide those essential functions and offer a way to prioritize. You don’t need to get your insurance card out as often as your debit or ID (I hope), but it does need a convenient place. With that in mind, we put two levered pull tabs that offer access to secondary storage spaces and a slip pocket on the back for the cards you use the most.

As a product designer, I spend a lot of time obsessing over what folks might consider mundane. Take keys, for example. There was a period of time in my life where I was splitting my time between Philly and Nashville every month. The number of times I spent looking for my keys for one thing or another, was locked out of my apartment after a trip, or was just generally disorganized as a result of having improper key discipline, are innumerable.

Our Man in Brazil: Interview with Tee Cardaci

The music of Brazil is a universe unto itself. There is an insane amount of it. I inherited a love of Bossa Jazz from my father, and the taste has slowly spread to more dancefloor-friendly Brazilian disco and funk. As a US-based record collector, finding a good and affordable source for Brazilian records has been daunting.
