Redinho : Edge Off EP

Numbers is a label that releases quality music that refreshes electronic music, especially with acts like Kavrsave, Deadboy, and Rustie. Redinho is no less. He could definitely be the “mainstream” sounding act that will push Numbers to the forefront. His latest release the “Edge Off” EP is a collage of electronic genres. The title track is a big boogie bass jam full of talk-box hooks and fat synth stabs, imagine if Zapp & Roger
was produced by Timbaland in his heyday. “Slap” sounds like a juke remix of Squarepusher while “Power Look” and “Whips” are big bass dancefloor destroyers. Really wish I had caught Redinho live down in SXSW.

Asian Dan Presents Classic House Tracks According to the Word of Todd: Todd Terry “Slam Jam”

Sponsored by Scion

This post is the first of many weekly guest posts from the one and only Todd Edwards. He agreed to grace us with some of his House music wisdom with quintessential tracks of the canon of House music as well as tracks that heavily influenced and mean a lot to Todd himself. First off is a track by Todd Terry, “Slam Jam” that samples my fav Ramjam song “Black Betty”. Also Todd Edwards offers up his remix of the legendary Dusseldorf quartet, Kraftwerk’s “Numbers”.

“Todd Terry’s productions were the first that I studied in depth. He lead the way in sample-based house track productions from the late 80’s, and from then on was known as “Todd The God”. (That’s catchy) “Slam Jam” had Todd’s signature drums running under a simple bassline which sounded more like a sample of a sound than an actual keyboard synth, rawww!!! The track is filled with catchy samples running through it. It was always a great feeling when I stumbled across a record where Mr. Terry got his samples from. Todd’s beats and use of samples gave him his signature sound. When you put on a Todd Terry record, you know it’s Todd Terry. So, that’s what I set out to do. He inspired me to create a sound that would be reconginzable to anyone who played my tracks. I owe him a big thanks for being the first of my house music inspirations. Of course, he should know this by now because I told him every chance I saw him at the clubs in the 90’s.”
