Tonight is the big night!! The Bottom Forty Decibel Festival showcase is tonight at Chop Suey, and in honor of this years festival kick-off occasion is the last of our track-a-day giveaway. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite slammers from Alci, a rather fresh producer who currently has a gorgeous 2-part EP out. This track is rooted in a simple house format, but with a heavy techno hitter right before the 2 minute mark that always gets the dance floor going, if you are a DJ this is a must have for your record bag, enjoy!

Go get down with PAVONE / RIFF-RAFF / EJECA / PILLOWTALK tonight at Chop Suey!

Dee Dee Brave – My My Lover (Instrumental) / Track-a-Day Giveaway

The year was 1990 and house music was thriving. Occasionally a midst all the Top 40 house mixes generated by the big labels, we DJ’s got the obscure small indie release, Dee Dee Brave’s “My My Lover” was in the later. Going to the Record Pool once a week was a real treat as you never knew what was going to be in your box.

This unreleased instrumental mix is one of those underground web downloads that we all need to have in our library, generously shared by Kerri Chandler. House DJ’s worldwide have been known to drop this in their sets. There’s a bit of a Liz Torres feel to this record in the vocal version and her sultry cry for, My My Lover.

We are giving away a track each day this week, leading up to our Decibel opening showcase with Ejeca, Pillowtalk, Riff-Raff and Pavone this Wednesday at Chop Suey (Get your tixxx here!).

Pepe Bradock “Deep Burnt” / Track-a-Day Giveaway

Bottom Forty is so thrilled to be included in the upcoming Decibel Festival showcase with Ejeca, Pillowtalk, Riff-Raff and Pavone that we’re giving some free downloads away!

This is a track I’ve been obsessed about for a while now…a glorious 90’s house record with an ethereal sample from Freddie Hubbard’s “Little Sunflower.” When I found that the item was vinyl only, and Discogs was listing copies going for $70-105 each! OW! So after whining about it on Facebook, my friend Mark O’Brien from San Francisco sent me his record as a way to extend the Burning Man concept of unexpected gifting! And big thanks to Chris Savenetti as well for the vinyl rip…feel the love? I do. Let me pay the love forward with you too…
