The Nightplane track on the Social Experiment mix ("Parallel Lines") sounds awesome in that context. As does Benoit & Sergio's "Principles".

I really want Social Experiment 002 unmixed as well, just for the completist in me.

I don't see it mentioned upthread, but I may have mentioned in the Mark E,Revenge Slo Motion House thread last year, anyway The Soul Clap XLR8R mix from 2010 is still fully awesome:

glad to see more love for the dj kicks, the press reaction seems like it was generally positive but i definitely was expecting more of a reaction from the indie world a la nicolas jaar or james blake. which is a bummer because it is so much better than either of those records― a lagoon par la mer (psychgawsple), Tuesday, 12 April 2011 20:32 (1 month ago) Bookmark

My attempt to get the indie world listening to Soul Clap/W+L
srsly tho, I know the Ilx doesnt dig self-promotional and kinda off topic posts, but some of you W+L/SC DJ Kicks fans should be into this mix I made and I'd appreciate any listens/feedback/love/hate to get me closer to trumping the chump that somehow has gained 2000+ plays for a (imho) pedestrian mix. Thanks!
(or just DL the slightly tighter version from sndcld and dont say anything; either way hope you enjoy)

Live was pretty crazy, the dj booth was as much a party as the dance floor

If you've ever wanted to hear Mel Blatt from All Saints sing "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" over a smooth piano-house track with percussion not disimilar to Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It", then the Soul Clap album is for you.

she's on another track too that i like better. the press release about how they met is kind of hilarious. i was mostly disappointed by the album though, kind of dry, punctuated by unfortunate wackiness

i have to hear this, i really like the idea of soul clap making a divisive pop opus
― psychgawsple, Monday, 27 February 2012 07:17 (four years ago) Permalink
not pop enough for that :(

seems like a far cry from the wolf + lamb album tho, right?
― psychgawsple, Monday, 27 February 2012 08:19 (four years ago) Permalink
you mean the w+l dj kicks? i haven't listened to that since this time last year and it didn't leave a huge impression on me
― lex pretend, Monday, 27 February 2012 08:22 (four years ago) Permalink
i meant the wolf + lamb album, which was a p understated affair
i guess i'd argue that this thing is pretty 'pop' tbf, but it fails regardless. its problem has more to do with pretending like it has this uber-funky weirdness vibe going on, but not being even close to weird enough in actuality to pull it off. if you're going to have crazy spoken word intros that evoke dudes like andre 3000 or prince or george clinton or w/e they shouldn't be forced. and they shouldn't be this boring. i mean, lines like "a circumcised man gains powers of our universe, shaping him into a being of interplanetary dopeness" do not sell themselves
lex was right when he said this album was 'dry', p much the opposite of funk. i thought that the dj kicks thing actually achieved a nice balance of smoothness and weird-ass funkiness but this album is just blah

anyone heard the soul clap fact mix?
can't tell if i like this or hate it. fucking despise that "get low (incoming bitch)" track though, jesus. sounds like if limp bizkit made house music, not least with them roaring over the mic in any previous set i've heard it in.
some good stuff on here, though it's way closer to jazzy jeff's mixes than any of their previous stuff.

This Soul Clap album isn't exactly unpleasant but kinda dull at the same time? Like it simultaneously feels halfhearted and like it's trying way too hard.
