GET IT AT BEATPORT.
First feedback in from Josh Wink, Massimiliano Pagliara, Solomun, Dave Aju, Tensnake, Pedro Winter, Mark Farina and and many more.
Composer, skateboarder, synth collector, basketball, burger connoisseur & ex-Chicagoan:
That’s the definition of James Curd.
With releases on labels like DFA, Repopulate Mars, Trax, Permanent Vacation, Greenskeepers & Exploited among others – James keeps his output high.
He has been collaborating with Filip from Daytime Discoact Poolside from LA as well as Chicago Legend DJ Deeon while scoring and supervising movie soundtracks. His music has been remixed by The Black Madonna, Lee Foss and Felix Da Housecat in the past.
James Curd’s new record comes with a remix from Red Rack’em whose tune ‘Wonky Bassline Disco Banger’ was Juno’s biggest selling house record and was played out by a long list of leading DJs as it has been decimating dancefloors all over the world since its release last year.
If you like your grooves funk-fuelled and analog, then look no further than James Curd’s rather glorious triple track EP.
James Curd about his new record:
“One night while I was working in my new studio I got a little home sick because a fest that takes place down the street from my building was going on back home in Chicago. Derrick was playing and I grabbed some of the audio from the end of his set of him talking to the crowd and dropped it into ‘I Get Up”. “Disco Fool” was one of the only songs I made in a studio I built with an SSL desk before realizing a studio under a club was a terrible idea.”
Discobelle has the premiere of this amazing new tune by James Curd entitled: ‘Disco Fool’. Read more here: http://bit.ly/2lqaRFG
