Long Time Shanghai DJs Collabo for Motel77 'Clash' EP


Motel77 is the new collaborative project from two long-time Shanghai-based producers Charp and Thoma Cher. They mostly deal in darker disco sounds, coming together on this project to "explore different sides of the so-called nudisco genre. It’s deep, dark or physical, but always focus on groove."

Motel77 first EP Crash is forthcoming on La Dame Noir at the end of January on the reputable French label. Look for that next week-ish at that link and / or check out the company they keep now. First song at that link is a Trisome 21 cover. We approve. Cher and Charp will be at Dada celebration this released at the beginning of March.

Yeti Out Release "Silk Road Sounds Vol. 1"


Local promoters Yeti Out have their first digital released in "Silk Road Sounds Vol. 1: "As creative tribes from the East and West continue to intertwine both online and offline, Vol.1 explores the meaning of 'journey' through a spectrum of music. The compilation is a sonic exchange of culture, and therefore pulls its name from the mythical trade route which connected Asia with Africa, the Middle East and Europe. The 12-track playlist highlights emerging underground sounds, while pays homage to the different regions through innovative sampling."

Neat stuff. Music is hip hop, house, and grime from Roska, Zean, Bohan Phoenix, and more. This is the new shiiiiit. Click that link to have a listen.
