Ok listen up, the Bottom Forty Interior party is this Saturday Sep. 13 at Kremwerk and we have the amazing DJ/producer Vin Sol on hand to shake us down! All the Bottom Forty residents will be on hand to contribute their signature sounds to the night as well. What can you expect to hear you ask? Well first off, you can be assured that everything you’ll hear will be qual-i-tee.

I’ll give you a little sneak peek of what’s in my virtual record bag for this weekend. Starting with a track from Moiré out on the Werkdiscs imprint. It’s a moody and acid tinged jam that bounces around your head like an atom under the influence of hallucinogens. The B40 crew will surly serve it up propperly this Saturday!

Bonus! Here’s a mix Moiré put together for Fact Magazine last month.

Exclusive Mix 037 : Vin Sol (Soo Wavey Records)

Written by
September 3, 2014

How does one get from point A to point B? For West Coast producer and DJ, Vin Sol, it’s been a linear progression. When Sol began to build his collection, he jumped in head first, hitting swap meets in Oakland California searching for anything soulful or rhythmic. Armed with stacks of soul 45’s and funk LPs it became evident that it was time to do something with all these gems. With the cash made from local DJ gigs Sol threw down and got his first sampler and began to chop away adding the Roland TR-909 to his arsenal in the process.

Slowly his attention shifted away from soul and funk towards Disco, House, Techno and Italo. The need to expand his collection landed him in New York City where his crates and production began to grow as well as his love for House and Techno music. In shops like A1 Records Sol’s taste for stripped back, raw, emotional House and Techno began to dilate. Sol knew it was time to build a proper studio to make and release music that was rooted in the records and gear of the past while still maintaining a futuristic yet stripped back feel. That vision became Soo Wavey Records that was birthed with comrade Matrixxman. In 2013, Sol broke out with a myriad of 12″ singles beginning with Edges Of A Vortex on a split 12″ with Drexciyan DJ Stingray. “Edges” received spins from the likes of Bodikka, Kevin Saunderson, Serge from Clone, and Waze and Odyssey with its heavy Chicago vibes and raw drum machine grit. That was followed by 2 white label 12″ remix releases with Matrixxman of the high priestess of Balearic soul, Sade. These 12″s received play from a wide spectrum of top dj’s from Seth Troxler to HNNY, showing an ability to make stripped back jacking house to sultry soulful house. Next up was his 12″ It’s House featuring Chicago House pioneer Tyree Cooper, which garnered support from the likes of the legendary Larry Heard, Len Faki, Gerd, and Sasha.

VIN SOL Will be our special guest at the BOTTOM FORTY INTERIOR II, September 13th at Kremwerk, RSVP // INFO
