You Used To Hold Me So Tight

Part 1 > Classic soul grooves from Detroit and mid-80’s boogie midtempo bump along in the night. Check Phyllis Nelson’s monster love-maker “Move Closer”, while an infamous old school boot puts Candi Staton over Jamie Principle. Seiji’s bumpin’ slant on disco and Ron Hardy inspired warehouse sounds from Marcus Mixx as the tempo takes off.

Part 2 > Snares rattle through an old-but-new Chicago ride, with softer melodic echoes right behind. Broken beats washed over with late-night rain & sunshine strings make the midpoint of the set, breaking down into heartbeat ambience and classic a.i. maneuvers. Check the latest moody jacks from Chicago’s Steve Tang, recovered late 80s delirium from Marcus Mixx (yes we like this record), and Pete Leidy’s smooth sample-based textural patchwork.

A late-night cooler from Dave mixes ethereal touches, dub-drenched rhythms, and surfactant percussion, with uptempo hypnosis & flashbacks from Detroit & Chicago. New music from G-Man and a summer stroll from Marcellus Pittman hold down part 1, while Chip E’s autobahn exploits and Jus-Ed’s clattering rawness set the tone for part 2.

Part 1 > We rock a killer set from Jeremy Campbell mixed exclusively for Sonic Sunset. Originally from SF but now a fixture on the NYC leftfield disco / odd-genre DJ scene, Jeremy has whipped up all kind of frenzy with past nights hosted by the crew of vinyl pranksters (some nights recorded live are still archived online). His current \”non dance\” party DAZZLE SHIPS continues — more on his current projects at Dig it!

Part 2 > Darker textural moods are layered against lighter ambience for a short but intense excursion from Dave.
