KC’s Music Monday: Last Day of April Edition

Not sure if the last day of April has any significance to it (or if there’s some kind of made-up Internet holiday for it) but either way, it’s a Music Monday occasion. Enjoy.

First up is a new mix from OUTPOST1 and on the sly resident knomad for Sampled Radio split alongside Brian A. It’s available as a free download so you can bump it at your leisure to get pumped on May’s monthlies where you can catch knomad doing his thing live. Alongside WCDB, we’re co-hosting Jillionaire and Dre Skull alongside our residents and now that it’s almost May, the countdown has begun. Full track-listing for both Brian A and knomad available here.

Check out what else I’m listening to today beneath the cut. Also – I have a handful of local music to rinse through the next couple weeks and if you’d like your music to be added to my ever-growing queue feel free to e-mail me.

KAB x JunGALA Interview: Samo Sound Boy

This Saturday, it comes recommended to make the pilgrimage from Albany to New Paltz (it really is just a straight shoot down 87 after all) to catch Dubbel Dutch and Samo Sound Boy play out in celebration of the two-year anniversary of JunGALA at Cabaloosa’s.

Simply put, this booking feels like planets aligned, especially considering that it is a two-year celebration (big ups New Paltz!) and also how last year when Samo was billed to play JunGALA, we were hit with a cancelation due to brutality in the form of Hurricane Irene. Thankfully the good folks involved with JunGALA and Broken Teeth Crew worked out bringing him back around and, no less, at a time when his label Body High is really beginning to turn heads.

Recently, Alexander Wang featured a track from the label’s own DJ Funeral during its runway show (!!!) and next week (Feb. 28) DJ Sliink’s Vibrate EP comes out on Body High! Sliink absolutely did the damn thing in the club last week and I’m stoked to catch Samo, (co-founder of the label alongside Jerome of the LOL Boys) just a week later. Also of note, this will be Dubbel Dutch’s second time gracing JunGALA so you can stop kicking yourself if you missed him play out locally last time (like I’ve been).

Samo Sound Boy, of Trouble & Bass, is a Los Angeles based producer and DJ whose powerful live sets and original productions have brought him to the forefront of today’s global club scene. With his second EP released through Palms Out Sounds, another for Trouble and Bass, and forthcoming remixes for the likes of Tim Dolla, Bassanova, and NGUZUNGUZU, Samo is only getting started spreading his club aesthetic that Chicago journalist Dave Quam described as: “Weird, banging, and beautiful. Like a shortwave radio recording of all the best stations at once.”

OTS x OP1 Interview: DJ Sliink [+Exclusive, Free Tracks]

Winter’s entering it’s final throes, and more importantly, this month’s editions of on the sly and OUTPOST1 are almost here. This month we’re bringing DJ Sliink from New Jersey to headline our partnered parties at (le) poisson rouge and the Fuze Box, respectively.

On Thursday, Sliink will be joined with Contakt, who played OUTPOST1 over the summer (revisit the Q+A here) and resident knomad. On Friday, Sliink will join guest Tony Quattro and residents Party With Tina (who you may have seen open for Rusko this past weekend), Looney and knomad.

As per usual, we will be playing on air Friday from 6-10pm on WCDB 90.9FM for your official pre-game music.

And to introduce our headliner: As part of the Brick Bandits, which include the likes of Tim Dolla, Dirty South Joe and DJ Sega, DJ Sliink‘s records have been obliterating club sound systems through the hands of some of the most respected soundbwoys in the business. His signature blend of Jersey/Philly club, incorporating aggressive uptempo rhythms with soothing Pop and R&B samples give him extensive appeal across the pop and underground spectrum. His DJ sets run the gamut of Pop, Dubstep, Moombahton, Jersey/Philly/Baltimore Club, House and Reggae – the standard loadout for a working New York Club DJ. With upcoming releases on Hype Headz, Pelican Fly out of Brussels, and guest slots on Mad Decent Mondays, this naturally gifted talent out of Newark, NJ is an artist to watch in this emerging wave of hybrid dance music.

Mega Bonus: DJ Sliink was kind enough (and not to mention very generous) in sending us an exclusive party pack of tunes to get us through this work week. Don’t sleep on this exclusive, free download!
