James Murphy and the DFA crew have driven dance for nearing two decades now. The NYC-based label and his band LCD Soundsystem blur the lines between live and DJ with an unapologetic approach to indie. Behind the decks Murphy sets trends for tastemakers but put a mic in his hand and it's pure magic. After a short hiatus, the iconic band reunited in late 2015 just in time for EDM to die. Armed with a synth-heavy sound, the group have an uncanny ability to make anyone dance, they just get it. To follow up on their recent album 'American Dream' the DFA crew are prepping a couple of 12" records complete with a hefty set of reworks from a couple of crate diggers.
Innervisions boss and multi-RA top DJ, Dixon takes the reigns on the catchy vox single 'i used to'. Crafting a subtle Berlin groove on top of Murphy's familiar ballad, this one is for the late nights, the open airs, the everywhere. Pressing into the same wax, a gritty 14 minutes of synth make it's way to vinyl for the first time as Pulse (v.1) rounds of the first record. Los Angeles' Lovefingers takes the hit in 2 cuts of 'Oh Baby'. Track number one on the album and a recognizable favorite, the tune gets a working of low-end keys for two dreary remixes.
LCD's impact on dance music isn't in doubt, but with wax packs like this, we love them even more. Showcasing their include from Berlin to the West Coast, this band defines timeless. Great for listening, better for dancing, add these two your crate.
