Yo guess who just got laced with the Curtis Vodka EP? Yeah that’s right this is 611 Records and we sold out of Sou Funk (FHZ001) so fast they doubled their order and then ordered the Curtis Vodka release too. Those are selling so well that they are the number 2 and number 3 best seller in the store. Holla. Yeah son we push units, out da trunk. Yo so the other
great thing about this pic is that my boy Tim Baker is pick number 4 on the 611 list with that OVUM release. Tim Baker is the shit representing for the Detroit Techno scene like it ain’t no problem. Yeah that’s right that EP ain’t got no vocals on it. Man that dude has the illest polo sweater game I have ever seen. I was hanging out with him in Union Pier, Michigan and we went from playing croquet to feigning interest in badminton to going down to the beach in like an hour all with his polo sweater tied around neck and those ivory white shoes. Killer dude. He owns a label too called Elphanthaus (no black eye peado) but some how has never put out an EP on his own label. I also once tried to convince him to make electro beats with me on the 303 while juiced in it after partying all night and seeing him at sonotech. Oh yeah I also dj’d for him at the after party were I found out I was really not cool since I worked at Budget and everyone around me owned galleries, was a superstar international dj that just came back from European raves or owned their own home. That morning was a sobering experience while I watched the sunrise on my sister’s house still banged out of my mind thinking about how I too one day will own my own condo in a gentrifying area of Chicago… Tim Baker thanks for also djing my sisters 30th birthday party in New York.1 comment

Over a year in the making, featuring 22 fully mastered funk carioca bangers and 17 artists, Pancadao has been a labor of love. After some missteps with our first release we set out to put a quality CD with more information and a more equitable business arrangement than previously associated with funk carioca compilations. We worked with Greg Scruggs who met with each of the artists, found a lawyer to develop a contract in Portuguese. From there we gathered bios and lyrics for each songs and thanks largely to the good people at Two Brothers (Instituto dos Irmaos) in Rocinha we also have translations. The CD opens up accordion fashion and features 2 booklets with nearly 80 pages of pictures, bios, lyrics and introductions.

FHZ006 is all about acid boys and acid girls featuring Todosantos direct from Caracas Venezuela. There’s mad colors yo and zebras. This release is our most ambitious to date with a full color 3D cover with custom 3D glasses and a DVD featuring the Todosantos pods and digital tracks for all your serato DJs out there. Pods are the next wave of music, the idea that every track will have a music video to go along with it. Just wait until Serato adds it to their setup and you’ll see what I mean.

Oh Snap Turn Table Lab is lovin some Flamin Hotz right about now.
Turn Table Lab said:
The only thing I know about Curtis Vodka is that he posts on the hollerboard and they reviewed his mix cd in the Fader (which we never got, Curtis if you read this, we’re interested), but this guy has put out a ridiculous record of b-more influenced edits (right here) so I had to do a little investigation. And the kid is from freaking Anchorage Alaska! That wouldn’t really mean much if the tracks here weren’t so badass. If you like those kind of emo Baltimore cuts like “Girlfriend / Boyfriend,” you just found your new favorite shit right here. Curtis does these things so properly with mellow keyboards laid on top of the standard drum breaks, the exact right amount of vocals and all the little things that put them above a simple mash up. Enough of pandering though, check the sound on his mix of Cassie’s “Me and You(1).” Shit bumps. And the hip hop remixes are so on point, check “Shoulder Bounce(2)” and “Mary Jane(3);” just drawing on that southern smoke with codeine keys and choppy “Sing Sing” beats to keep your brain moving. Shits like a fucking speedball son! I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t kept up with my Omarions and Chris Browns so I’m not sure who the singer is on “Hey Girl(4),” but that might be the most addictive joint on here. Bonus track is a remix of the OG “Diamonds Are Forever(5).” So soulstrut has their outlet in the Melting Pot label, and now the hollerboard has theirs with Flamin Hotz, is that it? Bring in on, message board peoples got talent.
Also look out Pop Monteral I think CV is going to be making a guest DJ spot. more details as they come together.1 comment
