Sorry we’ve been quiet so long! We have been busy behind the scenes and good things take time.
First big news is we are creating a vinyl shop right here on this site! We’ve got some special limited edition items and collectibles that will only be available here. We’ll be notifying our fans by email so be sure to sign up using the Contact page. That way you’ll get a chance at limited vinyl before the general public!
Jazz is a remix of Afrika Bambaata and the Jazzy 5’s Jazzy Sensation from 1998 and marked our return after a 13 year break. It was released only on special promos to cd and vinyl and has been remastered for its first digital appearance.
Jazz was the first Double Dee and Steinski mix done using Pro Tools, version 4 to be exact, and so it was our first digitally produced piece. And it was the first time Steinski had hands on the controls for one of our mixes. To this day it sits at the top of our favorite tracks!
Voice Mail/Sugarhill Suite is our take on remixing some favorite hits from the Sugarhill catalog. A UK release that didn’t make it to vinyl it was only released on cd and has been a forgotten track until now! Also newly remastered.
Voice Mail was done the year after Jazz and by now I was up to speed using Pro Tools so Steinski and I were each working alone in our spare time and sending the work in progress back and forth until we were happy with it. The final mix was done at McBone Studios in NYC directly across the street from Irving Plaza where we later performed at sold out shows opening for DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist and Coldcut.
The big deal is we snagged legendary DJ Cut Chemist to add his signature scratching to the mix and of course his performance was stellar! Also adding bass is Adam Dorn, aka Mocean Worker. Again this is another of our top tracks, lots of fun voice bites and of course the Sugarhill hits that are unforgettable.
Remastered from the original masters, both are now available at Bandcamp right now so go get 'em!
And stay tuned for more exciting vinyl news very soon!
