It’s that time of the year again: Record Store day. For those of you who have been living under some form of rock that doesn’t have internet access – it’s a special day for the music industry where labels and artists release special edition physical vinyls as a way to get you, the music buying public, into record shops the length and breadth of the country.
To coincide with this year’s Independent Record Store Day (21.04.12) Torontonian four-piece Azari & III will release a limited edition 12” vinyl featuring two brand new remixes from two contrasting artists that cover both techno and house music.
On the A side, Finnish DJ and Producer Jori Hulkkonen, renowned across the blogosphere for his version of Corey Harts 1980’s hit ‘Sunglasses at Night’, strips back the original’s percussion to deliver a contemporary Chicago influenced house groover – a perfect contrast to what you will find on the b-side.
The b-side is probably the reason while you’ll be getting excited. It comes from the hottest property in dance music at the moment: Gesaffelstein. It’s a slow-building, ‘80s tinged electro-work out with eletronic toms and abrasive filtered synths, that winds itself up into a frenzy in the breakdown before dropping back to bubbling drums and vocal snatches – classic Gesaffelstein.Official Site: http://bit.ly/Azari-Site Facebook: http://on.fb.me/Azari-Facebook Twitter: http://bit.ly/Azari-Twitter Out 21.04.2012
