DALLAS

Angelo Boom took a much-needed vacation in Dallas to reflect on life and music. The Lonestar state provided insight for the prolific composer. Newer concepts and passion inhibits the soul of the man that puts the boom in your room. Dallas, the inspiration for a blazing EP that bends the soundscape of the underground movement.

THIS AIN’T HOUSE by W. JEREMY

this-aintt-house-1THIS AIN’T HOUSE is a jacking, oldskool kind of record. Think back to the time when the scene was attended with only true house music enthusiast. No V.I.P areas, no outrageous charges, and no dress codes. The music was raw, clever with a dash of danger. This record brings that feeling back!

Meet Me At The Leather Disco by Manny Cuevas

cs3296639-02a-big-disco

ALL INFO CAME FROM 8DPROMO.COM

Kicking off the releases for Get Up Recordings in 2017 is the Meet Me At the Leather Disco EP, coming from Florida’s own techno and house music pioneer Manny Cuevas (aka, DJ M-TRAXXX). The EP contains three originals and two remixes of the title track from NYC’s Rhenalt and Toronto’s Carlos Fuerte.

No stranger to the Get Up Recordings family, Manny Cuevas has worked with label owners W. Jeremy & Christy Love since 2009 when he was the A&R person for acid house creator DJ Pierre’s label, Afro Acid Digital. Originally from South Lorain, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Manny settled into the unsuspecting City Beautiful (Orlando) in 1985. He quickly became a force for pushing the sound of Chicago house and Detroit techno on Rollins College’s local station, WPRK 91.5FM, broadcasting his show from 1989 until 1997. Expanding beyond showcasing himself, he’d host many world-renowned DJs and producers, including Carl Craig, Roy Davis, Jr., Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, DJ Duke, and frequent mixes from DJ Pierre. As DJ M-TRAXXX, Manny has the toured the US as well as the UK, Central and South America, Germany, Amsterdam, and Edinburgh. On the production side in 2009 he was remixing Louie Vega, DJ Pierre and his mentor, Junior Vasquez. Manny would also earn his way onto Vasquez’s Generation Next compilation on Tommy Boy’s Silver Label. Two years later his original production “House Thunda” was included in Snuff Crew’s benefit compilation for Japan. The title track, “Meet Me At The Leather Disco”, is a deep, dark, whistle-blowing, late night jam. Pumping alongside of that is the “Jackin’ Tha 707” beats track. Rounding out the EP is “M-TRAXXX Anthem–3 (featuring PlusDeep)”, which takes a beautifully different direction with its old school house melody and atmospheric feel.

First up on remixes is Rhenalt, head honcho of Rebel Eye Records. He is a world-traveled DJ, playing in Europe, Latin America, and Asia, as well as every major venue in NYC. Rhenalt has released tracks on DJ Pierre’s Afro Acid Digital, Todd Terry’s In-House, Nervous, as well as Get Up. Rhenalt’s remix puts a dark acid twist on the title track, lending itself to be a late night floor-filler.

Next up on remix duties is Carlos Fuerte. As a fixture in the Toronto house and techno scene, he stepped away from the industry and has recently had a resurgence. The remix he delivered here is amazing. He takes the dark elements from the song and spins them into something beautifully positive.

Atish (Desert Hearts) – “This EP is so old skool I couldn’t refuse.”
Andy Riley / Inland Knights (Drop Music) – “I quite like the Rhenalt Remix.”
Kid Enigma (Great Lakes Audio) – “This release is solid.”
DJ P-Rez (Not So Fast Records) – “I have room for every track on this release. Every single track is quality.”
Lupe Fuentes (Inhouse Records) – “Original 6am mix is grooving!”
Kane Ian (Dustpan Recordings) – “Nice stuff on M-TRAXXX Anthem 3, and I’m also digging Carlos Fuerte’s mix of Meet Me…”
Dean Facer (Resident Advisor) – “All are superb in their own way. Great release.”
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) – “Very cool EP, particularly the Rhenalt Remix of Meet Me … and the Jackin’ the 707 cut, wicked stuff!”
Kosta (Vibe FM) – “I have to say that Rhenalt’s remix does the trick for me. Fresh!”
Andrew Emil (Four Play Music) – “Really LOVE the Get Up and Love Mix. Very spiritual, will definitely support this.”

1804: The Hidden History of Haiti is a documentary film by filmmaker Tariq Nasheed. Nasheed is the producer of the #1 selling African history documentary series Hidden Colors. The new film 1804 talks about the untold history of Haiti and the Haitian revolution, which was the most successful slave rebellion in history.

For years, certain people in Hollywood have tried to come up with the resources to do a film about the Haitian revolution, but they were halted by different challenges because of the controversial subject matter.

But we feel that the unknown history of Haiti should be uncovered and taught to a global generation of people who will see the perseverance of the Haitian people as a source of inspiration.

This is the first time a documentary film has gone in depth into the history of Haiti, and the film will also explore the real reasons for the current state of Haiti.

Funding raised for this film will help cover production, on-location travel costs, elaborate reenactment scenes, and post-production costs.

So get involved, and become a part of history, and contribute to the production of 1804 today!

I’ll pitch the track for the soundtrack. Let’s see how it goes!
