Canadian musical heavyweights Konrad Black & Art Department join forces for a single that is set to be one of the big underground records of the summer…
Hot on the heels of the superb Tone of Arc single ‘Shaking the Sky / No Pushers’, the No.19 Music team have lined up another surefire winner with the pairing of Konrad Black & Art Department and their outstanding record ‘Graveyard Tan’.
Konrad Black should need little introduction, the Vancouver born DJ/Producer has made his mark on the global electronic music scene over the past decade, be it with his influential co-owned label Wagon Repair, his collaborative work with Martin Buttrich in LA or his residency at Panorama bar in his adopted home of Berlin, his name has become synonymous with quality and a passionate approach.
The pairing of No.19 Music owner Jonny White and fellow Toronto producer Kenny Glasgow as Art Department has been one of the great Canadian musical success stories. A critically acclaimed album and massive singles through Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels label combined with a touring schedule which as seen the pair crisscross the globe has turned Art Department into a household name in dance music circles.
Together Konrad Black & Art Department offer up the wonderfully deep and dubby ‘Graveyard Tan’, a record presented with two different version, both of which are build around a darkly soulful vocal incantation and searingly twisted synth riff. The A side presents, Version 1, a richly mixed, bass heavy affair that has you hypnotized from the opening bar with it’s 6am audio aesthetic whilst the flipside offers up Version 2 with its intense FX brought to the fore.
‘Graveyard Tan’ is another standout single from No.19 Music and is likely to be heard at every dark afterhour club and after party for months to come, watch out.
