LongDistanceDan – The Dust Man Stirs

Yes, finally LongDistanceDan’s debut full length album, “The Dust Man Stirs” is available for download.
Carrying on from where his 2015, “The Other Side Of The Sky” left off, the album is a heavy mix of lo-fi, raw beats. Taking influence from raw funk, lo-fi hip hop, psychedelia, garage rock, library music and more, here is what people have been saying already –

“There seems to be some kind of crazy interference on my headset….nope…you’ve tuned into the psychedelic sound of Long Distance Dan. The Dust Man Stirs a pot filled to the brim with eclectic beats and sound textures. Moving between the electronic and the analogue, between downtempo trip-hop and speed psyche-beat. Strange variations found here for your third ear…” Ollie Teeba (The Herbaliser)
“Sounds great!” Boca 45
“Dan’s beats are imaginative and intriguing, you never know what is going to come next!” Jonny Cuba (Soundsci)
“This shits dope man! It’s gotta cool sequence to it, well mixed and knockin. Good drums” Walter Gross 
“Sounds good man, I like those drums!!! Keep the nastiness alive” Psychopop (Skrapez/Gonjasufi)
“It’s freaky cinematic, deep psych bangers. There’s some track I absolutely love, massive breaks, dirty bass lines and a weirdness to it all that’s really cool.” Tom Caruana (Son Of Sam/Tea Sea Records) 
“It’s a dope piece of art” Jason Furlow (New Kingdom) 

The album is fully instrumental apart from two tracks, “Rescue You” which features Icelandic forward thinking hip hoppers Cryptochrome and “After Omega”. A hard edged, garage rock howler featuring Sam Crick, formally of Brighton ska, punk, garage band Wilf. The awesome album artwork is provided by Sun Moth.
The album is out now for Name Your Price download via the Dusted Industries bandcamp page.

Markey Funk – Witch Doctor

The ever reliable Delights label are back with a brand new 7″ single. The label’s head honcho Markey Funk gives a treat of pure delight with two tracks, “Witch Doctor” and “The Brew”. Both are drum heavy, synth and organ lead slices of fuzzed up funk. The mean and sharp Meters-meet-Goblin groove of “Witch Doctor” is extended into the mind-melting sound orgy of “The Brew” on the flip side, providing a perfect soundtrack for the wildest bad trip scenes in your favourite hippy/biker flicks.
Released on limited 7″ single and digitally on September 22nd, you’d be a fool not to grab this!

 

While you wait for the single to drop, check out this awesome mix Markey put together of tracks and sounds that have influenced the Delights label.

Memory Man – Broadcast One

Memory Mmemoryan was first brought to our attention by Edan via twitter. Any album that features Edan is of interest, and then when we saw the rest of the line-up we knew this was something special.
‘Broadcast One’ is simply one of the best hip hop albums we have heard in a long time. On paper this is traditional sample based hip hop, however it is far from the typical, so called real boom bap hip hop that can be as boring as the mainstream commercial music it berates so much.
Memory Man mixes up obscure, funky, psychedelic samples with plenty of interesting spoken word snippets to create something unique, exciting and entertaining. It’s not dissimilar to Edans vision of hip hop, however this isn’t someone just trying to copy Edans style, Memory Man is carving out his own path.
The great production is laced with top quality rhymes from some of the best and most interesting underground artists around today. These include, as mentioned, Edan, Kool Keith, Open Mike Eagle, Busdriver, Paul Barman, Prince Po, and Mr Lif.
Available now via bandcamp and on limited vinyl release on Chopped Herring Records, this is a must for all hip hop fans wanting to hear something interesting, unique and funky.

LongDistanceDan – The Other Side Of The Sky

We are verLDD coverspecy proud to present the latest release on our Dusted Industries label, by our very own, LongDistanceDan.
‘The Other Side Of The Sky’ is a new 7 track instrumental EP of raw, psychedelic, funky beats.
Here is what people are saying so far –

“Picture what might have happened on that trip to ‘Nam if James Brown had taken an excess of LSD and become funk’s Colonel Kurtz…It’s not unlike something the Heliocentrics might do actually, or even The Grits. Just a lot faster (in the main) and after ingesting a lot more ‘purple haze.” Monkeyboxing.com

“Really liking this a lot, will definitely play some of these tracks out! Loving the direction you’re going in here.” Strictly Kev (DJ Food/Ninjatune)

“I like the rough and raw sound and the psych touch all over…. it’s been a long time since I’ve heard such a release.” Renegades Of Jazz

Others who have shown their support include 2econd Class Citizen and DJ Format.
The EP is out now for Name Your Price download, however if you are kind enough to part with your cash you will receive an exclusive 45 minute DJ mix direct to your inbox as a little thank you.
Extra special thanks goes to Strictly Kev for the super nice artwork.
