Ghosts on Tape Details New 12" for Icee Hot
- Words: Kat Leinhart
San Francisco-based DJ/producer Ghosts on Tape (a.k.a. Ryan Merry) has detailed an upcoming release for Icee Hot, the third in what seems to be an annual tradition since the label launched back in 2012. "Only Now" b/w "Snake Box" finds the Bay Area artist building on his signature command of rhythmic interplay, and features Chicago duo Innerspace Halflife on remix duties. Icee Hot originated as a party co-run by Merry (full disclosure: XLR8R editor Shawn Reynaldo also has a hand in its operation) before expanding into a fully fledged label operation, and has since overseen releases from artists like Bobby B, Grown Folk, Avalon Emerson, Contakt, and Lando Kal, as well as Merry's own productions.
"Only Now" b/w "Snake Box" officially lands on August 4; the full tracklist and preview clips have been included below.
