LOL Soundsystem

You can't throw a rock these days without hitting some electro artist influenced by John Carpenter. Sort of wish he had the same effect on the film world, but that's another matter. It's not clear if "aCarpenter" is a direct homage; I've heard tracks more faithful on a technical level, but this captures the spirit of his film scoring work, retrofitted for the dancefloor of course. Gucci Soundsystem is a project of Henry "Riton" Smithson and Ben "Fattie Fattie Bum Bum" Trucker.

I've been seeing the odd bill here and there for Escort, the Environ label's latest disco offering. I must have not been paying attention as I thought it might be one man, in fact nothing could be further from the truth. The collective released their debut 12" yesterday; Environ doesn't care for advance sampling of the mp3 kind, and we certainly respect their wishes. Escort is performing at one of the upcoming PS1 summer Warm Up events (incredible full schedule, they've outdone even past years).
