Late Night Audio has established a reputation as one of London’s best underground parties. The cream of the scene have graced the turntables at various sweat soaked East End underground venues, so it was only a matter of time before they started there own label to release the music they love to dance to. xpect the finest in deep electronic house, balearic boogie and Italo flavours, all expertly mastered onto luxurious vinyl with slick graphic artwork.
The first artist signed and to be releases on the label is French/U.S producer Kevin Lemonnier, recording under the name Das Volt. This man uses no plug-ins and a resolutely old skool production philosophy. Utilising analogue-only signal paths and using only outboard and vintage gear. The Das Volt sound harks back to a time when boogie and black soul filled the air.
Gestures is a modern take on the electro boogie sound, pizzicato strings, silky Rhodes and fat bass all blended to create a dance floor gem. Fantasy is a modern Italo disco classic, with epic piano’s setting the mood over a driving trouser flapping bass line. Remixes on the vinyl of Gestures come from the Telepazio Italian Fabrizio Mammarella, who does his deep electro funk turnout with immediate dance floor effect, and Toby Tobias of Rekids and Late Night Audio who completes the vinyl package with the Balearic boogie interpretation.
Will Mills also delivers his interpretation of Gestures that will be available in digital stores. Stripping back the beats he brings out the musicality of Das Volt’s original even more, and this mix is also bolstered by a string arrangement and jazzy live guitar playing.
Lookout for the second and third releases: Lexx Kawabatta (Drumpoet Community) & Zwicker (Compost Black) with LNA 003 as another outing for Das Volt (who just scored his first remix for Radio Slave’s Rekids imprint off the back of this release).
LNA will be hosting a back room at Secretsundaze on the 28th of March with Cobblestone Jazz and Mountain People. Following this their next own party with New York’s Brennan Green and Das Volt Live on the 4th April at Visions Video Bar in Dalton – This label is looking to be an up-stoppable force for 2009!
