This week it’s not only EE’s Alex Patchwork’s birthday and ensuing rampage weekender – big ups to the big man, am sure some port will be spilled – but if you haven’t noticed, we’re also celebrating our second vinyl release with the mighty Darkhouse Fam. Their animal style, double double “In & Out” EP is, in our opinion, a stone cold banger. Of course. Sa-Ra’s Om’Mas Keith graces the opener “Take On The World” whilst SF’s cosmic funk bro B. Bravo laces “Like No Other” and Darkhouse’s Don Leisure and Metabeats deliver a fully formed, proper release, with reprise N all dat.
We’re gonna be doing this interview series on the regular – check out the AraabMUZIK – a more long form chat that isn’t about the press release or the hard sell, more about everyday living, their craft and community.
Saying that, we do have an insane party coming up that you have to come to. It’s our collabo with Kutmah’s Sketchbook and Hit+Run and celebrates not only the Darkhouse Fam EP but also our dude Kutmah’s slamming new CD release on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood – “Worldwide Family Vol.2″. We got Gaslamp Killer joining us too. Fine print says limited tickets are available here.
