We first stumbled onto the Throne Of Blood team back at the tail end of 2010 when they were just about to release Bicep’s massive pumper “Darwin”. We absolutely loved that release so kept a sharp eye on the New York based label head James Friedman ever since. Lucky we did as his A&R skills have led to a constant stream of understated house jams from then on for the sanguine label.
The most recent release which is currently dominating numerous pages of the interwebz best blogs comes from the Dead Rose Music Company and their accurately titled 4 songs EP which came out on TOB sublabel Let’s Play House. James’ co owns and runs it with Jacques Renault and Nik Mercer so you know its good… Have a stream of all the releases at the bottom of the post.
So James Friedman is getting quite the following now and he’s actually coming over to our European shores very soon for a gig at the very cool Paris Social Club alongside Moodymann and TOB stalwarts Remain & Mlle Caro on the 10th March.
Anyways enough blah blah… more exclusive boom boom!
Here’s James to kick us off with Throne of Blood – SlothBoogie Guestmix 023:
