London’s Disco Bloodbath launches it’s long awaited label this June with the raw, unbridled house of ‘That Ain’t Right’ by co-founder Damon Martin and backed with remixes from Waze & Odyssey and Legendary Children.
Disco Bloodbath began life in 2007 as an irregular speakeasy party in the basement of a Caribbean restaurant in East-London, the brainchild of its resident DJs Damon Martin, Ben Pistor and Dan Beaumont [now ex-Bloodbath]. Since then the collective’s raw disco, spaced out Italo, vintage house and proto-techno have taken the Bloodbath sound across the world while making some exceptional remixes for the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Little Boots, The Aliens and White Lies.
Disco Bloodbath Recordings first outing sees Damon Martin crack out his TR909, Juno 60 and sampler for a succinct, emotional slice of timeless club music that tips a respectful nod to the USA’s finest proponents of House with a capital ‘H’.
Waze & Odyssey, rightly riding a wave of hype for output for Scucci Manucci and Body Work, don’t disappoint with the first remix of ‘That Ain’t Right’. Self-confessed Todd Terry and MK devotees, the Canadian duo do their inspirations proud with a brilliant executed interpretation that updates and respects the original in equal measure.
Closing the EP is a remix from Legendary Children, who serve up an acid tinged, roughed up warehouse version that betrays their predilection for soundsystems, basements and ‘proper’ music.
A sterling debut for an imprint that really shouldn’t be ignored, Damon Martin’s ‘That Ain’t Right’ is released on Disco Bloodbath Recordings late June / early July.
