It’s been quite a time since my last post and even that was more of just a straight up mix. This blog was one of the things that helped reignite my interest in writing about music and more specifically trying to expose the artists and labels that deserved wider recognition. Which brings me to my the whole reason the blog has been silent for so long. After some deliberation, happenstance and partnership a label emerged as an idea that deserved further pursuit.
A little over a year later, a label has formed in collaboration with fellow DJ/music connoisseur, Shawn Kralicek AKA Struggle. The label is called Night Gallery and is dedicated to bringing quality music to the vinyl format, regardless of genre. It will simply be music that we believe in. We are excited for the first release which is from an established artist working anonymously (under the name Dijkhuis) who provides 3-tracks that explore new ground that don’t resemble anything the artist has released before. They range from deep electronic choral weirdness (“Hotel 19”) and jackin’ techno (“You Can Bring it”) to soulful and funky deep house (“My Love Is…”). You can listen to clips from the Night Gallery site and judge for yourself, but I think you will find at least one track (or more) that moves you. This will be a 12″ vinyl only release and should drop in late March. Stay tuned.
