Elevater Action’s second release of 2014 features an impressive new track from Outlaw Producer, paired with essential remixes from Distal and Poolboy92.  ’Her’ crystalizes Austinite Outlaw Producer’s signature sound with a track that manages to be both laid back and vibrant.  ”Her” doesn’t so much introduce itself as it kicks off in mid-stride, offering a slinky, sultry mixture of edgy beats, and restrained vocal samples that works its way into your head slow and steady.  It’s a hypnotic drink of water for anyone winding down the night, but not yet ready to leave the dance floor.

Atlanta’s Distal, using skills he has honed as a intercontinental touring DJ as well as heading up Embassy Records, warps and twists “Her” into an exciting trip that starts off with dance floor ready hip-hop before morphing into a blurred energy punctured by strong beats.  His take on “Her” nicely adds to a growing catalog that includes a stellar release on Tectonic as well as robust collaborations with HxdB and DJ Rashad.

New York producer poolboy92 takes minimal elements for the original and then proceeds to tear things up with a banger suitable for kicking the club up a notch, with drops of syrupy, druggy R&B and spectral reverb sprinkled through out. The former Mohegan Son, poolboy92’s will only whet appetites for his upcoming release by Austin’s #Feelings label. 


Available in luscious red vinyl as well as digitally, look for ‘Her’ to drop in early April.

Acid Sketch



Pulled from the forthcoming edition of Red Bull Music Academy's quasi-annual Various Assests compilation is a one-off collaboration from Atlanta man-of-many-talents Distal and rising Spanish producer Astroboyz, who was breifly profiled in our Bubblin’ Up Weekfeature on Barcelona’s emerging electronic scene. While both attending last year’s RBMAsession in New York, the producers had a chance to collaborate for a few hours in the studio, and the fast-paced, appropriately titled “Acid Sketch” is the result. That session seems to have provided both Distal and Astroboyz with their first chance at tweaking a real TB-303, and their enthusiasm for the silver unit’s classic sound is heard all over “Acid Sketch,” as sharp and propulsive rhythms are laid down with the sole purpose of serving as a bed for the active filter tweaks which run throughout. RBMA’s full Various Assestscompilation will see a free digital release tomorrow, conveniently on the same day that the academy will begin accepting applications for its 2014 session in Tokyo.
