Jonny White’s No. 19 imprint presents a ten-track music sampler just in time for the warming months of spring. The package includes exclusive music from some of the label’s key artists — showcasing works from My Favorite Robot, Cameo Culture, and more. The album starts off with Tone Of Arc’s “Comes Only Once” — an innovative electronic cut that will wet your appetite for more. My Favorite Robot’s “Sounds to Resurrect” gives us a hint of what to expect on their forthcoming No. 19 album debut, and Cameo Culture drop some Balaeric vibes with “Losing Game.” The album in its entirety is well worth a listen and can be streamed in the snippets below.
Highly-regarded Canadian label No. 19 Music is out this week with the third installment of their Social Experiment album series. Following up Soul Clap’s boogie-down selections from February 2011, Art Department dive head first into the terrific world of spacey house and out-there dance floor techno. Members Kenny Glasgow and Jonny White had been doing their thing quite well before merging into Art Department under Crosstown Rebels in 2009. Now, with several years as a duo — performing both live with Jonny’s vocals and in DJ sets — the pair are very much established among the underground’s titanic talent.
We last checked in with Betoko and Climbers earlier this month with Betoko’s remix of the Climbers’ “Equal Responsibility”– a track that’s been on heavy rotation since its release. This latest track “Timeline” out on James Teej, Voytek Korab, and Jared Simms’ My Favorite Robot label on January 7th, accomplishes a little something different. The production pairing drops the pop-laden influences on this one and a delivers a dark instrumental track full of extended synth squelches and counteracting chord play. Enjoy a four minute stream below.
