A recent mix by Detroit-based producer Fake Gold Chain is currently girding through my speakers and countless other speakers in Europe and parts unknown. Given how intrinsically Detroit electro this music is, chances are listeners around the globe will gravitate to it more than American audiophiles. Frankly that’s the way it’s always been.
Fake Gold Chain recently put out a mix called The Law of Club and Fang that delves into various parts of either Juan Atkins-style early techno, soul-driven Craig Huckaby type blacktronica and then veers into areas that are exclusively his own. For more on the project, go check out The Loop.
With the post, I’m also announcing the end of my semi regular Detroit Heat post here at LxNxM. The city is so all over the place with music that makes global listeners fawn… much of which we’ve posted without the Detroit Heat moniker that I’ve decided to give it some rest. You can be on the lookout for the full podcast/CD/DVD/straight to HBO mini movie in the near future. Until then, keep Detroit on your radar and listen to Fake Gold Chain.
I’m gonna be real with you, people. I’ve been having a hard time finding blog-worthy material this week. There’s not really that much new stuff out there that I’ve found worthy of your fine musical palates. So, I have decided to post a couple of videos for some not-so-new songs.
The first video is for Maluca’s El Tigeraso. Although the song was released by Mad Decent back in August, the video just dropped a few days ago. I would best describe the style of this tune as “digital speed merengue,” to quote the Fader blog post where I found this. The message of the song: Step off, papi.
I’m diggin the beer can curlers.
This next video comes to us from Duck Sauce (A-Trak and Armand Van Helden). The song, Anyway, has also been out for a lil bit now, but it’s still as catchy as the first time I heard it. In fact, this song is catchy as a motherfucker. It’s very Daft Punk-ish. It kinda makes me feel like I’m in a European discotheque having the time of my life, instead of in my dark room staring at a computer screen (not as sad as it sounds).
