‘SPLINTER’ rips through, highlighting DJ Godfather and DJ MELL G’s penchant for electro + track premiere.

Marking the first release on DJ MELL G’s Juicy Gang Records label, the legendary DJ Godfather joins forces with an artist who has continuously shone throughout the dark days of 2020 and beyond — DJ MELL G herself. Echoing the pair’s bouncy aesthetic and love for freakish electro and ghettotech, the Detroit legend and rising star from Hamburg have produced a 4-track EP called ‘COPS CAN’T DANCE’. 

Combining the vibrant efforts of DJ Godfather and DJ MELL G with Detroit vocalist Parkhouse, ‘WERK N’ TWERK FEAT. PARKHOUSE’ opens up the EP with pulsating aplomb. A synth-heavy production with a touch of acid stitched between Parkhouse’s relentless orders to “werk n twerk”, it’s the product of three artists delivering a succulent punch.

With Parkhouse’s vocal too good for just one track, ‘VOCAL’ follows suit. A stand-alone edition of Parkhouse’s lyrics from ‘WERK N’ TWERK’, it’s stripped-back to the bone and provides a tool for DJs to layer into their sets. 

On the flip, ‘SPLINTER’ rips through, highlighting DJ Godfather and DJ MELL G’s penchant for electro. Bleeps, blips and burbles, this is an off-kilter opus with a futuristic twist. Imagine a world ruled by AI, robots and humans hibernating in pods; ‘The Matrix’ sonified.*

Wrapping up the EP in a parcel of skittering percussion and wobbling bass and tied up with a fluorescent pink bow, ‘HIT THAT SHIT’ ends the release on an urgent note. Fast, frantic and a little bit chaotic, the final track embodies the energy that Juicy Gang Records is all about and leaves a tantalizing tease of what else is to come from DJ MELL G’s brainchild.

标志着 DJ MELL G 的 Juicy Gang Records 唱片公司的首次发行,传奇的 DJ Godfather 与一位在 2020 年及以后的黑暗日子里一直闪耀的艺术家——DJ MELL G 本人携手合作。底特律的传奇人物和汉堡的后起之秀与这对富有弹性的审美和对怪异电子和贫民窟技术的热爱相呼应,制作了一张名为“COPS CAN’T DANCE”的 4 轨 EP。

将 DJ Godfather 和 DJ MELL G 充满活力的努力与底特律歌手 Parkhouse 相结合,’WERK N’ TWERK FEAT。 PARKHOUSE’ 以脉动的沉着打开了 EP。 Parkhouse 对“werk n twerk”的无情命令之间缝制着合成器重的作品,它是三位艺术家提供多汁冲击的产品。

由于 Parkhouse 的人声对于一首曲目来说太好了,“VOCAL”紧随其后。 ‘WERK N’ TWERK’ 中 Parkhouse 歌词的独立版本,它被精简到骨子里,并为 DJ 提供了一种工具,可以将其融入到他们的场景中。

另一方面,“SPLINTER”贯穿始终,突出了 DJ Godfather 和 DJ MELL G 对电子的偏爱。哔哔声、哔哔声和哔哔声,这是一部带有未来主义色彩的不合时宜的作品。想象一个由人工智能、机器人和在豆荚中冬眠的人类统治的世界; “黑客帝国”声化了。*

将 EP 包裹在一个轻快的打击乐和摇摆不定的低音包中,并用荧光粉红色的弓绑起来,“HIT THAT SHIT”以紧急的音符结束发行。快速、疯狂且有点混乱,最后一首曲目体现了 Juicy Gang Records 的全部能量,并留下了诱人的嘲讽,即 DJ MELL G 的心血结晶。
