CGI is proud to present the long overdue vinyl debut of Cc, one of the most talented DJs and producers currently working outside of the limelight. This release follows ‘Up Wind’, his outstanding 2012 digital EP for JASS, and precedes his forthcoming debut 12” EP for Proper Trax.
Designed to appeal to DJs and house fans seeking hard, funky, and effective club weapons, Cc’s sound is informed by years spent honing his skills in clubs in Chicago (as heard on the funky and direct house workout of “Calvino Italo”) and as a resident DJ for No Pain In Pop in London (the UK Garage rhythms adapted to Cc’s own deep and distinct sonic palette on “Shackles”). Cc now holds it down in the Southern states as a resident at Atlanta’s HUNGER club night and Savannah’s Cape Fear.
The flip-side of the record contains 2 tracks by Golden Donna, an incredibly unique and talented producer who is following up last year’s stunning debut LP for Not Not Fun with two deep, moving, and melodic cuts of some extremely adventurous and almost ambient electro. Rich, pronounced melodic textures encourage deep introspection as they collide with uncommonly fresh rhythms, making this a workout for the mind as well as the body.
Edition of 500 copies mastered by Dietrich Schoenemann
