Mix | Streaming Playlist Salvador Dalek’s “Seaside Weekend” (Day 085) is where downtempo beats meet beachside bingo. Mixed by Eric Scott, this set melds progressive house and dancefloor-oriented grooves from the Day For Night artist roster, also featuring Rhythm Factory, … and even Bluebottles… resulting in a blend of hauntological pastiche.
The Day For Night catalogue focuses on a 30-year history of artist works created by Eric Scott, as well as under the production aliases of Rhythm Factory, Mr. No-Logo, The Everyday, Cowboy Joe vs. Julie Android, Found, Fuzzknobs, King FM, Kunstfabriken, Monica Bang, Sexus and Bluebottles. Long-term friend and collaborator Peter Moraites is also one-half of Salvador Dalek; and the Von Trapps project is a one-off collaboration with singer-songwriter Doug Green.
CD | Download “Vigilant” (Day 046) presents eleven tracks by Eric Scott, leading with the Britpop-tinged “My Nature”, and merging smoky trip hop, brooding melodies and dark keyboard layers, with the occasional upbeat diversion.
CD | Download Mr. No-Logo ups the energy levels on “Graceless” (Day 059) from downtempo to wilder breakbeats, reflecting a trip-hop fusion of dark ambient and electro, and drawing from a mixed bag of vocalese sampladelics with electronica. “Tha Loop” picks up on a hummed bar of rare groove in this sophomore release.
