DFA's Been Busy in 2010
- Words: Patric Fallon
Yesterday, we reported on the upcoming single from Gavin Russom's latest moniker, The Crystal Ark, to be released in March on DFA, and now we've got more to share. The taste-making label has been extremely busy already in 2010, releasing lovable singles from London's Ray Mang, who reinterprets George Clinton's funky jam "Bullet Proof" with a vocal assist from the legendary Lady Miss Kier, and Germany's Black Van, a collaboration between Kris Menace and Moonbootica's KoweSix. Their poignant original tune, "Yearning," is a classic house track, complete with epic piano and synth melodies, a straightforward dance beat, and groovy bass rhythms, sure to provide a night-closing song for many DJ sets to come.
Next up on DFA's single release schedule is another pulsing single from Dublin's dirty house patron, Shit Robot. His new track, the synth-heavy anthem "I Got a Feeling," comes to us March 9 backed with the bouncing electro-tinged percussion of "Norfolk Nights." Not long after comes a new jam from San Francisco's Michoacan. Producer Fernando Rios' slow and steady disco-funk is honed to a fine point on "In the Dark of the Night," which is matched with a more upbeat remix by Italy's Clap Rules on the single's b-side. "In the Dark of the Night" will be available March 30, and you can check out the video for the song below.
