WS015: Steve Cook – Notice Me EP w/ remixes from Pop District and Aimes

Steve Cook - Notice Me

After a killer remix for FLXXX’s ‘Zombie Land’ on WS013, Steve Cook is back on Wonder Stories with his own EP. The lead track ‘Notice Me’ is a drugged-out mid-tempo burner with tribal drums and cut up diva vocals. Accompanying ‘Notice Me’ is a pair of remixes, one from Toronto-based producer Pop District, and another from Wonder Stories label head Aimes. Rounding out the EP is another Steve Cook original ‘Drifted’ which is eager to offer up the dark and brooding side of Steve’s productions.

WS014: Aimes & Perdido Key – Hell Hole EP w/ rmxs from Pin Up Club and Magnus International

WS014 - Aimes & Perdido Key

WS014 – Aimes & Perdido Key

Wonder Stories boss man Aimes and frequent collaborators Perdido Key team up once again for a gritty and slightly off-kilter EP. Although right at home for Perdido Key, Hell Hole and La Pretora show a darker territory over Aimes’ usual polished disco sound. The stripped back tracks show an effort to do more with less, mostly featuring one bass synth, one lead synth, and drums. On remix duties we have Pin Up Club from Amsterdam and Norwegian ace Magnus International.

WS013 – FLXXX w/ Remixes From Steve Cook & Los Fugazzi

WS013 – FLXXX, Steve Cook, Los Fugazzi

After a series of notable releases on labels like NEIN and Play Pal Records, Mexican duo FLXXX bring their sleazy acid-techno sound to us for our 13th release. On remix duties we have Steve Cook (Clouded Vision / Tusk Wax) and Wonder Stories regulars Los Fugazzi.

WS011: AIMES & James Rod – Touch / Journey To Jupiter

Wonder Stories mainstay AIMES links up with Spanish space disco don James Rod for a split EP of cosmic goodness. Each offering up an original track, plus a remix for the other, the EP’s common ground can be heard in the arp’d baselines and spacey synths.

WS010: Air Zaïre – Love 94

love94-Recovered1026

Brooklyn-based producer Air Zaïre is making his highly anticipated return following the 2014 release of “Sanibel ft. Patrick Baker.”

Featuring original vocals by newcomer Daniela Cabrera,”Love 94″ pays tribute to Air Zaïre’s favorite ’90s smooth jazz and soft rock radio station from his South Florida hometown.

Whereas the airy “Sanibel” focused on whisking away a love interest to a remote island, “Love 94” is a hopeful tropical anthem about second chances and winning back a lost love.

“Can’t let you turn around and walk away, baby”, sings Daniela before proclaiming, “Someday we could be together / But we’re alone tonight.”

Accompanying the release is a pair of club remixes from Mighty Mouse and AIMES, and a french touch reimagining by Douze.

Vocals recorded by Max Peterson. Mastered by Aman Ellis. Additional mixing by Michael Banks and Dan Diaz

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.
