3x12" Vinyl UK23.04.13
the rekids-affiliated pyramids of mars imprint is set to really take off in 2013, with a string of unique releases already in the pipeline. for this special remix package, label bosses matt edwards and james masters have brought in nyc house legend joaquin joe claussell to re-imagine the machines debut album redhead from 2010. but make no mistake, this isnt any ordinary remix project all the tracks have been reproduced, rewritten, dubbed, performed and mixed by joe, with the help of a group of musicians.
distorting former interpretations from the late unchained rhythms series propelling the primitive released >eno< into an entirely new dimension, resulting in what joaquin describes as a mind-fuck battle between himself and himself.
following closely on the heals of the wildly popular amedou et miriam >bara< 12inch, joe claussell returns with his highly anticipated the lower east pipes project, delivering an eclectic, energetic & inspiring dichotomy of party rocking efficacy & esoteric ambient exploration in this latest e.p. 12inch from sacred rhythm music. disorganized corruption combines the experimentally minded disco reverberation & percussive chaos of manhattans glory years with the funky cross-culturally minded aesthetic conveyed flawlessly by claussells productions to create an all-out party rocker

fania records proudly presents the release of the deluxe 2-disc set entitled hammock house: africa caribe, produced and mixed by the legendary joaquin joe claussell. this project is one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year for djs, dance music fans and audiophiles alike. the project is a perfect marriage between old and new, a fresh take on classic sounds from the fania archives. late last year, fania records hand-delivered the original multi-tracks in a battered cardboard box to joe claussells nyc studio. what came to be was a project of ground-breaking magnitude. what you hear on hammock house are more than mere remixes. each track was approached and assembled differently, each on its own terms. as joe says, >some songs were edited, some were time-stretched...many parts were re-recorded...some new parts were recorded on top.< the first disc features nine classic fania tunes from lou perez, celia cruz, eddie palmieri, ray barretto and more, all re-worked with the joe claussell touch (full track by track notes are on a separate page). disc two is a live continuous mix by claussell, but not like your average dj mixing one track into another. joes stated goal for the mix-cd was to create an epic journey that begins in the motherland (africa) and moves to new york. >i wanted to do a futuristic mix, where stories are being created with soundscapes and tapestries, and segues work as introductions to each story.< never has the past sounded so present!
one of the uks most exciting and versatile young talents, route 94, is the next to make his mark on crosstown rebels with mind, body & soul featuring a body rhythm soul version from nyc’s joaquin joe claussell. cohort and leftroom boss matt tolfrey is also onboard, collaborating on second track habitual. the title track sets the tone of the release by heading straight into the late night hours with varied drum workouts and inspiriting keys that compliment the meaningful vocal. while habitual, produced alongside fellow londoner matt tolfrey who has been a mainstay dj, producer and label owner in the underground house and techno scene for over a decade, is electric and sensual with an enticing bassline. damian lazarus has enlisted influential nyc head and ibadan label co-founder, joaquin joe claussell to deliver a stunning body rhythm soul version, remixed in reference to his infamous body & soul sunday parties. here he delivers delectable keys and soothing brass tones as the serve of the day. route 94 aka rowan jones shot to fame, hitting no.1 in the uk charts with my love featuring jess glynne. keeping things largely underground, he followed with releases and remixes on leftroom, defected and hot creations. overwhelming success ensued as he performed at the likes of fabric, sub club, space, ushuaia, dc10 and many more. with an abundance of new material about to drop and a packed calendar of gigs already booked in for the coming year, this is only the start for the talented artist.
