Superlux Presents ‘Founding Fathers VA’
Founding Fathers is a brand new VA EP which includes tracks from label owners Mike Gill and Nick Gynn, as well as some of the emerging Superlux family; Thoma Bulwer and OMCSY. Taking a slightly different direction from SPLX001, this EP is a classic house record; featuring four original four-to-the-floor tracks.
“Superlux is all about pushing quality art, without taking ourselves too seriously. Our key defining factor is our chew-the-fat mentality and how we strive to throw out the rulebook, mash genres, and produce seminal tracks that you will pick up again and again.
Throughout the years, dance music has headed away from its origins into a new direction where most hits are forgotten within weeks and the standard for anthemic club tracks has taken a nosedive. Superlux Records are about restoring the order and curating a culture of music based on quality and longevity. Instead of vying for the obvious artists, we dig deeper to discover the true talent we believe fit our philosophy and will stand the test of time with us. We’re all about finding the freshest work to go alongside our own tasty productions without skimping on quality.” – Mike Gill
The tripped-out artwork by Charlie McFarley depicts the Chicago taxi that Mike Gill was in when he recorded the driver talking about his love of Jazz and Hip Hop for the opening track K. Robertson (Founding Fathers) which is named after the driver. Up next is N-Gynn‘s track 1998 which is an epic, psychedelic, transcendental house cut. Thoma Bulwer who also mixed and mastered the EP, delivers his powerful and chunky groover Tuel for the B-Side to go with OMCSY‘s Moody Matt, which closes off the EP with his laid back spin on a classic vocal house record.
