Factory Floor - How You Say (Boookworms Remixes)

$4.99

DFA is pleased to announce three 12" vinyl singles, consisting of remixes of "How You Say" from Factory Floor's self-titled debut LP.

This one (DFA2439) features two unique remixes by Bookworms (L.I.E.S. / Confused House), which marks his return to DFA following an anxious remix of The Night Patrols by Larry Gus in 2013. It reinforces the deep and dark acidic sounds he has become so well known for, taking this hypnotic single and tweaking it out for maximum impact. 

Includes a digital download of the entire remix EP, because why not.

"'Hold On' [is] a hybrid of trad '70s American disco and more synth-heavy Italo shapes.... Quite delightful." --Boomkat

This single contains another crystal clear remix (aka “Diskomiks”) from accomplished Prins Thomas. He doesn't need much introduction to you all, he's basically remixed everyone who's anyone. This time, he added his signature gloss to "Bridge & Tunnel", stretching it into a 7 minute celebration. 

On the flip is a remix from the next generation of Norwegian producers, Andre Bratten, who is signed to Prins Thomas’ label.

Justine + The Victorian Punks - Still You

$8.99 $9.99

Unearthed limited edition of the rare 12", in a full-color picture sleeve with poster.

Born in Tunisia, raised in France, based in New York City, the artist Colette has worked in various media--film, photography, paint and performance--but her greatest conceptual piece is her own life. Over the past four decades she has lived out a narrative of her own creation, one in which she has assumed various personas, guises and identities. Her first rebirth happened in 1978, when she pronounced herself dead, held her funeral at the Mudd Club, and was resurrected as Justine. Working with avant-garde pop pioneer Peter Gordon and his Love of Life Orchestra under the nom de plume Justine and the Victorian Punks, she recorded the "Beautiful Dreamer / Still You" 12-inch and dubbed the music "disco-punk." While the term seemed contradictory at the time, it serves in hindsight as proof of Colette's and Gordon's rightful place within the future-gazing avant-garde. 

"Beautiful Dreamer," the soundtrack for the installation series of the same name, opens with the soft lullaby of a music box, and transforms into a mid-tempo disco beat beneath Colette's doe-eyed utterances. Gordon's arrangement progressively heightens the track's intensity, culminating in his wailing saxophone juxtaposed against a lilting choral backing provided by vocalist Shelley Hirsch. Flipside "Still You" is a romanticized cover version of Lucio Battisti's "Ancora Tu." Front-and-center here are Colette's spoken word vocals, first in conversation with Gordon portraying a male lover and, later, dewily repeating, "Leaving you is just... impossible." The single, with its seductive bassline, fully encapsulates the sultry feeling of what might be described as "night music." 

Engineered by Jay Burnett, who would go on to record Afrika Bambaataa & the Soul Sonic Force's seminal proto-hip-hop classic "Planet Rock," these two songs were, incredibly, recorded in a single night at Electric Lady Studios. Some 30-odd years after their original release, they sound as compelling and entrancing as ever. Colette and Gordon, then as now, continue to make art ahead of its time.

Larry Gus - Years Not Living

$9.99

Inspired by the rural environment of his hometown of Veria, Greece, multi-instrumentalist / singer / producer Panagiotis Melidis started writing music as Larry Gus (from the Greek larigas, or larynx) in 2006, soon after the early demise of his previous band Ginger (a bass and drums duo with a sound similar to the early-’00s Providence scene, paired with hip hop overtones).

Melidis initially composed production music, and later on earned a reputation for intense and chaotic live performances. He retained Ginger’s primitive aesthetics of groove based music, along with an obsession for late-’60s / early-’70s free jazz, and combined them with sample-based techniques and crystal-clear psychedelic pop melodies, all merged into infinitely dense layers and polyrhythms.

Stitches, his first proper full-length, was released in 2009 for Greek hip hop label Cast-A-Blast, and Melidis began a yearlong residency at the Music Technology Group in Barcelona as an intern and postgraduate student. He then returned back to Veria to work on his next project, Years Not Living, an album inspired by Georges Perec’s 1978 book Life: A Users Manual and Lucio Battisti’s 1974 album Anima Latina. The sessions yielded a staggering 85 songs, and the entire process, set amidst Greece’s financial crisis, was documented and will be part of the feature film My Friend Larry Gus (directed by Vasilis Katsoupis), to be released in 2013.

Pared down to ten tracks, Years Not Living incorporates a wealth of diverse styles, ranging from ’60s / ’70s psychedelia and pop to hip hop and more.

  1. With All Your Eyes Look
  2. The Night Patrols (A Man Asleep)

Michoacan - In the Dark of the Night

$5.99

The one-two kick drum beat that starts “In the Dark of the Night” functions as a bit of a tease. Instead of just establishing the languid pace of the track, it has the power of suggestion, and its stark nakedness raises the question of just what will happen when the music fully launches. When, a few seconds later, a punch-drunk, flanging keyboard enters the procession, it’s the first clue that we are in for an off-kilter ride; the sauntering bassline that next appears adds a springy, funk bounce. But it’s the tripped-out, multi-tracked vocals of Fernando Miranda Rios – aka Michoacan, the producer behind this slow reveal – that give the song its peculiar, space-y vibe; it’s a bit like David Byrne with funk aspirations. Taken altogether – and there is plenty more, including tinkling piano notes; bits of percussion; and electrical washes – there’s a vaguely cosmic feel. The song coalesces, using funk to lure you to the dance floor, then intoxicating you to keep you there.

The Side B re-mix – courtesy of Italy’s Clap Rules – actually feels like more of a re-build: The song has been taken apart and put back together with all brand new parts. Instead of the more relaxed, dazed funk at the core of the original, it’s a glittery, disco ball-splattered track with funk elements scattered here and there, and glossy keys all around. 

“In the Dark of the Night” is Michoacan’s debut DFA release. He has already created music for Grayhound, Headinghome, Lektroluvv, Smash Hit Music Co., Speak Recordings, Bearfunk and Tiny Sticks.

Planningtorock - Living It Out (Jackson / Cosmodelica Remixes)

Planningtorock - Living It Out (Jackson / Cosmodelica Remixes)

$4.99 $9.99

“Living it Out” – perhaps the most unabashedly danceable song on Janine “Planningtorock” Rostron’s DFA debut album W – comes on (that is to say, seduces) in just the right ways. The song is all addictive disco, with synthesized string skitterings and Rostron’s voice purring out (she sounds like a futuristic Eartha Kitt here) a perfect melody that somehow gets even better at the chorus. It’s pure pleasure upsurge from beat-driven start to pizzicatto end, the kind of song that lets you know that, amidst Rostron’s many musical idiosyncracies, included is the ability to write a song that simply drags you out onto the dancefloor.

The Jackson remix is less dense and, in an odd role reversal for PTR, more off-kilter than her original. The warm, straight ahead disco of the album track is cooled here and things take on a more regimented pace, while Rostron’s vocals have been cut down into breathy, metronomic exhalations. The pizzicato strings fall in a new formation against a tireless, pounding beat, deeply guttural, corkscrewing noises and the taut, anxious feeling of anticipation created by the precisely timed landing of each.

The Cosmodelica remix, conversely, rearranges house – by adding bouncing bass near the music’s foreground and giving everything a vaguely more relaxed feel, while somehow maintaining an upbeat pace. Just past the song’s midpoint, the energy – and the depth of sound – kicks up a notch, with all the sonic elements meeting and proceeding apace. The track floats briefly, not unlike the original, on Rostron’s airy vocalizations for a brief period, before picking up right where it left off, toward its joyous, high-spirited end. - Kali Holloway

The track floats briefly, not unlike the original, on Rostron’s airy vocalizations for a brief period, before picking up right where it left off, toward its joyous, high-spirited end.

Billy Lock – aka Felix Martin from Hot Chip – has also contributed a mix.  His reworking starts off feeling deeply anticipatory, the beat pounding against disquieting bass pangs and a slow rising electric scribble, all of which serve to temper the original’s carefree spirit. Denmark’s When Saints Go Machine have transformed the track into a lilting, lovely five minutes of electronic pop – the song here has been remade into something both soft and fluid, with PTR’s vocals raised an octave, so that they  flow as smoothly as the new mix in which they sit. And Brooklyn, New York’s Laurel Halo offers a complete renovation.  She combines synth swells and washes into diaphanous, ambient layers of sound, then lets PTR’s voice echo – in a way that seems both haunting and wanting – amidst those vast atmospheric conditions.

Still Going - Spaghetti Circus (Feat. Reggie Watts)

$5.99

Still Going is Liv Spencer and Eric Duncan - but this single is truly home to an all-star cast, including Reggie Watts on vocals, Andrew Raposo of Hercules and Love Affair & Midnight Magic on bass, TummyTouch's Tim Lee on keys, and The VLA's Jason Rabe on guitar.

"Spaghetti Circus" is a guitar-laced piano anthem that drives to kick-and-scream dancehall levels, while the B-side, "Untitled Love," takes the listener on a sunrise Euro-disco journey. Both cuts retain Still Going's progressive magic that was originally featured on their now-classic debut "Still Going Theme / On and On."
