New York 21st Century mainstays Plant Music have just released Plant Music: Love Me, the imprint’s first compilation since the highly influential 2004 Sound of Young New York. And while Plant’s owners Dominique Keegan and Stretch Armstrong are still holding it down in the big apple, this collection of tunes featuring DJ Mehdi, Dimitri From Paris, DJ Wool, Clubfeet and more showcases what a global affair Plant Music has become.
DJ Wool (aka Glen Brady of The Glass) has a new EP, SF 94) dropping this week on Top Billin. The Irish DJ/producer, who has spent time in New York and Berlin before recently setting up studio outside of San Francisco dedicated his latest release to the West Coast house sounds he discovered on a visit in 1994. We choose the Slo Mo Mix to best showcase the late night sounds that perfectly blend UK acid house trippiness and American house style—exactly what was coming together to form the SF sound back then.
Glen Brady is mostly known throughout the music world as one half of the dance-friendly duo; The Glass. But his solo moniker, Wool, has been making rounds for his mixes, as his awareness towards the current electronic climate has trickled out into something contrasting from his work in The Glass. He’s done a mix exclusively for URB (available on his Souncloud down below) that highlights the world of slowed-down dance, building up to house, and rounding off things with some banging techno and bass-centric mayhem.
