Belle Isle Daze

Belle Isle Daze

Hi so it’s been far too long, I hope this helps make up for an extended absence.  A sprawling mix of soul, deep space techno, house and abstract funk. From Detroit to Chicago, UK to NYC and beyond the clouds, won’t you come visit trip city?  -Matt

You Used To Hold Me So Tight

Part 2: Right-click to download (80 min = 73 mb)

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.
