REYES / KANE REAL ACTION MOTION
From the people who brought you Disques Sinthomme and Ghost Town comes a new imprint LESDK.
Bringing back that NYC Lower East Side grime, LESDK will feature edits as well as new work from Dennis Kane and his circle of proper low-lifes...
Ghost Town and Disques Sinthomme featured contributions from Brennan Green, Richard Sen, The Beat Broker, Bicep, Jose Manuel, and Cosmic Metal Mother, as well as edit monsters like Jeff 'The Drunk' Overton and Cazbee.
Kane will be helming this label, curating work and providing his own productions and remixes.
Starts off side A with 'Real' - A soulful disco romp that has a gospel force as well as a powerful vocal performance. The song grooves from its first beat, and pushes the energy as it builds.
"Now it's time to be real..." Edit as manifesto - Pure heat!
The edit work here comes from one of the OG's of serious digging, Senior Reyes aka Jersey Pete.
Side B brings 'Action' as its first track, complementing the A Side, this is some dirty late night Philadelphia bar nastiness, mentholated disco with a humid female vocal, "I like to party, I like to flirt..."
Side B closes out with 'Motion', a slice of cosmic funkiness that laments a love that is not happening while a thick bassline moves the proceedings along.
This song has heartbreak and the haze of an early morning on the dancefloor.
Three essential edits for the DJ to bless the party people with.
