Discogs Mix 59 – Bamboozle aka Eli of Soul Clap
Discogs is excited to once again partner with Mobile Mondays! to present a special edition of NYC’s premier all-45s weekly DJ showcase! The May 15th, 2017 event downstairs at The Bowery Electric will feature cosmic Disco ensemble Midnight Magic performing live and exclusive DJ sets from Bamboozle and Lonely C of Soul Clap!
Boston-bred, NYC residing duo Soul Clap came of age with a mission to understand this history of dance music, and to recognize that “House wears many hats”. Weaving a tapestry of sound that draws influence from Hip-Hop, Funk & Soul, and Disco, Soul Clap creates a truly unique House style all of their own. With over a decade of releases under their belts, including 30-plus 12″s and EPs, two albums, over a dozen official mixes, and over a hundred remixes and edits, Soul Clap has carved out a reputation for releasing quantity and quality at the same time. Always pushing new boundaries, always traveling through time and space, The Clap is on a mission to change the world one dance floor at a time. Their latest project is the 93rd installment of the esteemed Fabric mix series, entitled, naturally, Fabric 93.
I recorded this mix at two different shows at Black Flamingo in Brooklyn. The first half is basically a Hip Hop set I practiced a few times and then rocked in the club. I don’t have the deepest Hip Hop 45 collection, but I tried to do something creative with some special versions and quick mixing and of course some of my favorite classics. Second part is more on the House tip. One of the first 45s I ever got was actually the Los Hermanos and I’ve been digging for House on 7” ever since, so my crates are a little deeper. This is a selection of new and old stuff to get the dancefloor moving.
