binary + keenhouse.


discodust being one of the main spots for the whole 'dreamwave' sound, i recently noticed that so far we have really missed out on properly featuring the ones that really coined this term and have been representing the sound constantly since over a year - about time for us to show binary some serious love. originating from los angeles, the binary family is a group of like-minded artists involving nightwaves, keenhouse, alfa, fabian, lexicondon, short circuit and the kids are radioactive - all names that fans of the genre have definitely seen around before.

after the initial phase of gathering the artists together they have been throwing events with fellow dreamers the twelves, anoraak, college, miami horror and bag raiders, being among the first to bring them to the states.

built on this solid foundation and backed up by a lot of noise on the blogs, binary are now about to release their label compilation 'binary presents la lights' which features the entire family, thus making it a perfect showcase of their sound. hot off the press, we have got a wonderful new track by keenhouse along with a remix by discodust favorite grum, enjoy another premiere on discodust!

keenhouse - ari-es
keenhouse - ari-es (grum remix)
keenhouse - ari-es (hemingway's starlight yacht remix)

the binary compilation 'binary presents la lights' gets an official release next week and will be available on all major digital download stores. we will have a follow-up post around that time, for the time being you can listen to the compilation here and sign up for the release party on the 13th, at the echoplex in la.

UPDATE: by overwhelming popular demand and mainly just because it's really good, i just added the remix by hemingway to the post as well which was promised to someone else by the time i prepared my write-up. kudos to tuftsmania.

Small, physical only release in Japan? Pretty sure this is still breaking it online, I've been looking for this track since Ken told me about it a couple months back... No luck finding it anywhere online though. Discodust FTW!

glad to see some readers are still buying CDs. so awesome!

Kyle said...

Yeah! Thanks for buying! Did you enjoy the bonus disc for Civic Transit? We think we got some great tracks put together for that.

Anonymous who bought the cd here.

To be honest I bought about 8 CDs in Japan while I was there. I didn't get to hear the bonus CD yet, but listened to the normal one, which is great!

Just commented on your youtube account, because I want to know whether the beginning of Mecho Maniac is from F-zero or not.

About buying CDs, I only buy cds if there is no 12" available or the cd is a special edition. In keenhouse's case I just freaked out to see the valerie crew on CD in a shop, just had to buy one. (anoraak was also there).Would have bought more, but already had like ...6 cds in my basket at that time. Tower records should be everywhere, they rock!
You can see my collection at discogs -> iidxmania. I'll probably upload disc pictures for discogs :)

Anyway always nice to get thanks personally(well kinda), Wow!
