Leo123+Shlohmo+Ponytail+DJ Sprinkles

Posted by Jakub

I know Leo123 from Eliot Lipp and Mux Mool, if I remember correctly they all toured together around the United States for almost a year in a white Scion. I’ve only seen him perform as Dark Party with Eliot, what really grabbed me was how much of the synth parts were actually being played on stage during the live shows. First listen thru I notice Leo has a strong understanding of electronic music from his home town of Chicago and a noticeable passion for Detroit’s godfathers of Electro and Techno. Its hard to make striped down analog gear sound this good without the knowledge and after hearing this track I feel confident saying that Leo probably has a sick collection of records in his room.

I am completely in love with Ponytail live, the youth and untampered ideas behind the project make it probably the most punk project i’ve heard live because they don’t hide behind the punk image, if I had a hyper nephew or niece that was 12 i’d buy them this record and I could see it bringing them the biggest joys.

Shlohmo is on the right path, what a cared for piece, drop the wobble and show off your actual skills, i’m impressed, now if we could just get an album of this.

If you listen to Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles and have the patience you’ll be heavily rewarded after one of his songs finishes.

Ironic, I was playing over the sample from sisters I don’t know what this world is coming to in my head yesterday. Terre educated me on deep house big time with that last album.

I couldn’t resist. I had to purchase that Shlohmo EP off iTunes. Great list as always, Jakub.

I downloaded Leo123’s EP off of iTunes and it’s great.

Hope you’ll post more of his stuff as it comes out.
