So Romantic by EZRAKH (New Jersey)
Remember ALL CAPS when you spell the mans’ name. EZRAKH is the man and if you’ve been lucky enough to be in the room when he’s spinning, you know it’s always a vibe to bring the people together. Organic and eclectic in taste, mixes are likely to include anything from afrobeat to jazz to funk to hip hop to house. Part of the Brick Bandits crew out of NJ, EZRAKH has made his name known at every venue you can imagine including premier NYC/Brooklyn clubs to house parties and underground d.i.y holes in the wall. It is his deep collection and broad taste that allows him to chameleon into any scenario, all the while staying true to his form. Check him out on the scene and stream/download his current mixes on soundcloud. [Free Download] @thinknotsleep

U.S. Caves by Caving (October 15, 2010) *
It’s truly disappointing how many bad remixes exist. You got to start to feel like DJs think we’re dumb. Now, here’s the exception. Presented formally as a tidy album of somewhat pertinent remixes, U.S. Caves by Caving is absolutely hypnotique. Re-appropriating vocal samples in and reinventing atmospheres, the entire album feels 100% original. Slathering it in adjectives couldn’t convince you as easily as a quick listen surely will.
Remixes by Hugo Frederick (July 26, 2011)
If this series of remixes weren’t so damn good I’d be tempted to say he’s biting on James Blake in cmyk. But I can’t say that, because these songs are great, doing the genre some real justice.
