Back with another monster of a release, Ellum Audio bring you four heavy duty remixes of the infectious jam ‘New York Is Alright’ from TV Baby - a killer track with ‘a throb of low-resolution low-end and caustic vocals’ - in the words of label boss Maceo Plex. For the A side Blackspun deliver a sensational ‘Minimal Mix’ and ‘Acid Dub’, while over on the flip Maetrik injects plenty of groove and Idjut Boys take things into another dimension! All tracks are serious DJ weaponry, each served to dominate the dancefloor in their own way at peak time.
ELL014 comes as part of a joint release with DJ Spun’s label Rong Music (USA), who will be releasing the original track plus remixes from Eric Duncan.
Blackspun is made up of Jason Drummond aka DJ Spun and Mark Bell aka Blakkat. Originally from San Francisco but currently residing in New York DJ Spun’s journey and career through electronic music began at the birth of House and continues to this day. L.A’s Blakkat is a vocalist, producer and first class DJ also working with the biggest names in the business and gracing the decks of the best clubs in the world. Together they make the perfect team with the results clear to see from this special release.
Flying high at the top of his game Eric Erstonel aka Maetrik (Maceo Plex) recently released his DJ Kicks album on !K7 which featured the Blackspun remix.
From their North London studio, Dan Tyler and Conrad McDonnell aka the Idjut Boys have run three record labels and produced their infectious dub-heavy disco sampling house for many more. They formed their first label, U-Star, in '94 on the back of their successful club nights of the same name.
