New Chavy Boys of London Mix; Aural States exclusive Unruly Records give-away

chavy_boys_main_0Having grown up in Baltimore City it never dawned on me that the late night dance tracks on the radio were exclusive to this city–that didn’t come about until high school. Now, the sound is showing up everywhere. And the publication XLR8R is no exception.

This month’s podcast features a mix by the Chavy Boys of London, an Unruly Records super-group of Scottie B, Shawn Caesar, and King Tutt (if you haven’t listened to any of their Money Lotion series, do so!) To describe the mix I’d have to fall into genre cliche catch-words like “Bangin,’” because, frankly, this mix is bangin’. The DJ Technics remix of Radiohead’s “Everything in it’s Right Place” is particularly memorable.  Also, don’t sleep on DJ Class’ “I’m the Ish” which may be Baltimore Club’s breakthrough into the top 40.  People Like Jermaine Dupri (click here for viddy of JD losing it in the studio to this track) and, apparently Puffy are getting interested in this sound now.

This mix could be an interesting nod to what to expect in the future from Unruly Records–the mix abandons the Lyn Collins break periodically for some four-on-the-floor action. One would assume that is the King Tutt influence at work, or perhaps Shawn’s roots in Deep House.

unrulyUnruly Records, in celebration of the XLR8R mix, and Aural States Fest, will kindly include some of their choicest cuts to be given away to the first 50 paid patrons of the January 30 date at Talking Head/Sonar Club stage. Have a turntable, maybe two…and a mixer? Then pick-up some Unruly classics and rarities on vinyl.

    “…And when it comes to shout-outs, there will be none greater than the MC on track 29 as he rails, ‘Everybody in the club, if you hate someone right now, you need to turn to them and punch them in the fucking face!’”

    Haha! I’ve not really had much chance to see these guys work so this poscast is great. I also like how they’re teaming up with Deep Sugar events. Thanks for the mix!
