Wondercast 006: Enrique Freyre

For Wondercast 006 we invited our good friend and local Mazatlan veteran DJ Enrique Freyre to submit a mix that embodies the sound of his tropical home town of Mazatlan, Mexico. Enrique, also known affectionately as ‘El Doc’, has been a long time resident DJ at some of the best spots in Mazatlan. He also happens to make the best pizza in town (sorry La Mona). Enjoy the free download and show some love some love to his soundcloud!

 

Perdido Key – Modificación EP

Out today is a new EP from Wonder Stories’ homies Perdido Key. You may have caught their debut EP released by us last month, which you can check out here. Now, the illusive NYC duo drops a banging left field EP with the illustrious NEIN Records. Two pleasantly weird and dance floor friendly originals are accompanied by a trio of remixes from Gameboyz (Spain), Sequencers (MEX), and Discordance (UK). The lead track is a wonky, chugging house number with a start/stop feel and great atmosphere. The B-side is a romping techno monster full of peak time acid and a demonic bass line. Available now here.

AIMES – Can’t Get Enough (Free DL)

Head on over and grab the track for free, no strings attached.

WS008: Perdido Key – Lost Is Found

Perdido Key Lost Is Found

We are incredibly excited to share Perdido Key‘s debut EP ‘Lost Is Found’.  Available now: https://pro.beatport.com/release/lost-is-found/1497482

Lost in depths of New York City’s underground club scene, you’ll find two producers collecting fragments of inspiration in the oddest places. On any night of the week you might find them raving in an abandoned Chinese restaurant or spinning records in one of Brooklyn’s many illegal DIY venues. The duo has channeled their inspirations into the studio, crafting analog heavy left-field house and techno designed for sweaty basements and dark warehouses.

Their debut EP ‘Lost Is Found’ shows them digging into the deeper and weirder side of dance music while still keeping an affinity to precise melodies and four on the flour rhythms. The EP’s title track is a dark and enigmatic house cut with a jacking beat and a deep ambiance. The following two tracks, ‘I’m Free’ and ‘Rat Acid’, are a pair of peak time techno cuts full of enigmatic rhythms and bouncy acid lines. Joining the release are a couple of remixes from Earl Grey and William Earl, both haling from the UK and of no relation. Earl Grey takes ‘Lost Is Found’ and tweaks it into a bouncy, understated, and sublimely deep house cut, while William Earl tackles ‘I’m Free’ with a slowed down and ghoulish chugging rework.

Paraphernalia: an Introduction to Mild Peril

Christopher Gilbert makes retro leaning and faux new age cosmic music. By Faux new age I mean his music could easily be mistaken for something Manuel Göttsching or Tangerine Dream was doing in the 70s. His bandcamp has a huge catalog of cosmic synth wave and is definitely worth a listen.

Wonder Cast 005: Rhythm Operator

L.A. based house aficionado Calvin James aka Rhythm Operator has been making some serious waves the past few years with a list of releases on a seemingly who’s who of underground dance labels. He first caught our ear with a his soulful EP on Let’s Play House, which he quickly followed up with a super funky and old school leaning release on Axe on Wax. His style is reminiscent of the old school sampling techniques of DJ Sneak and Todd Edwards, taking a would be obscure sample and re-contextualizing it to fit his dance floor vision. We asked Calvin to contribute and Wonder Cast and he delivered in spades, delivering a mix of deep, soulful house. Enjoy!
