After a few stop-start attempts on a Native Instruments Maschine Mikro, it was on a sick day from work that Anz made the first track on her Soundcloud page “for my 13 followers” – no days off, remember. “It was like an R&G thing with some harmonies,” she remembers. “I left it on there for two or three years! I still really, to my memory, like it! I could even sample it.”
Violet has announced the release of her debut LP, 'Bed of Roses', which will drop via San Francisco's Dark Entries on 19th September.
Perhaps surprisingly, the album title is a direct nod to the 1992 Bon Jovi ballad of the same name.
A year on from his debut album, and a year after moving from Australia to London, the latest Air Max ‘97 project has landed, the four-track ‘Falling Not Walking’ EP. The release features two collaborations with artists also impressing with their own distinctive shades of club music — Italian producer TSVI on ‘Paroxysm’, and Manchester’s LOFT on ‘Xhrinicibles’.
Decisions is a label founded on the basis of releasing idiosyncratic “music to move people”. With past releases from the likes of DJ Plead and Oroboro, van der Lugt is excited about the label’s upcoming projects. The first, from Avbvrn, due later this month, and later Isamov, a producer from New York City whose tracks feature in recent Air Max ‘97 sets (including his Recognise mix).
With upcoming shows in London, New York, Glasgow and Madrid, Air Max ‘97 also recently played a show in Hangzhou, China, in a venue called Loopy, behind the food court on the third floor of a mall. “It’s a concrete cube with a huge Funktion-One soundsystem,” he says. “I was so gassed to finally go there, the crowd was amazing, creative, young and free.” Travelling the world is an “indescribable privilege” for van der Lugt, who will never miss an opportunity to meet local people, eat in their favourite restaurants, and explore local scenes.
