The ever-excellent Gomma label looks to London buddies Daniel Avery and The Deadstock 33s [AKA Justin Robertson] for their second release the excellent ‘Nylon Icon’
Daniel Avery and The Deadstock 33s is a perfect marriage of old school dance music experience with up coming young talent. The man behind the Deadstock 33s moniker, Justin Robertson is an electronic music legend, emerging form the early nineties house scene to become one of the UK’s best-loved DJ/producers, touring the world with the Chemical Brothers and releasing musical gems under his Lionrock name. Now as The Deadstock 33s he joins forces with one of the hottest young musical talents around, the superb Daniel Avery. Avery co-runs the Kill Em All night at Fabric and has had recent releases for key labels including Headman’s Relish imprint and the uber cool Throne of Blood.
The latest Daniel Avery & The Deadstock 33s release kicks off with title track ‘Nylon Icon’, a brilliant bass driven, electro influenced cut that draws on dark vocals and atmospheric synths to create a surefire floorfiller. Second of the three original tracks comes in the shape of ‘New Moon’, a stellar record that journeys into off kilter percussive house with a twist. Finally from Mssrs Avery & Robertson we have the excellent ‘Eric Zann Revisited’ that sees the pair in funk fuelled yet spacy mode with this bumpin retro bass workout.
The remixes on the single come courtesy of Filthy Dukes and People Get Real, the former reworks ‘Eric Zann Revisited’ into a wonderfully fevered, acid fuelled offering whilst the latter takes ‘New Moon’ and reinvents it as a slo-mo balaeric electro killer.
Gomma are consistently one of the best labels around, continually seeking out music that goes beyond the expected and with this latest release from Daniel Avery and The Deadstock 33s they further cement their enviable position in electronic music, enjoy.
