Donald Byrd - Think Twice (Edit De Prince Language)

To commemorate the passing of the great jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd today, I'd like to share my edit, originally released on the Editions Disco label, of one of my favorite songs of his - the jazz-funk and breakbeat classic "Think Twice". Produced by the incomparable Mizell Brothers, it was sampled (and provided the basis) for three straight-up classic records: A Tribe Called Quest's "Footprints", Main Source's "Looking At The Front Door", and Armand Van Helden's house masterpiece "Flowers". Byrd's records were a gateway for many of us who got into the nascent jazz-funk, rare groove and breakbeat scenes of the 1990s as DJs and collectors. But his 1970s albums for Blue Note like Street Lady, Places & Spaces, as well as those of his protégés the Blackbyrds, were not just a rich trove of hip-hop samples for the eager beat-digger - they contained great songs that helped us to appreciate jazz as a popular art-form that was still engaged with contemporary soul, funk and R&B music, and encouraged investigating its infinite musical dimensions further. He was and, and is, tremendously important to my development as DJ and lover of music. We've lost a giant today. RIP.

Prince Language - Mystery Warmth

“I wanted to evoke hazy memories and a lazy sense of anticipation. The consciousness that something good is gonna happen, in time. These seem to be common feelings in a lot of my favorite new tracks. And they take their sweet time getting there - sort of a slow dance, if you will.” Add Prince Language on Soundcloud:

7. CITI004 A1 Futurisk-Lonely Streets (Prince Language's Fantasy Mix) Sample

CITI004 A1 Futurisk-Lonely Streets (Prince Language's Fantasy Mix) Sample

This May, Minimal Wave will take an old sound in a new direction entirely, giving Futurisk’s classic ‘Lonely Streets’ a modern shake-up through a remix package from current artists – to be released on MW’s sublabel reserved for new music and old favorites, Cititrax. Futurisk, an electro-punk group made legendary by their anarchistic records and explosive live shows, mysteriously disappeared from a thriving scene in 1984. With an electric and dynamically layered sound (created with pre-midi instrumentation), the South Florida group left an indelible mark in the crates of disco and minimalist collectors dotted around corners of the world, including LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy (who gave a complimentary wink to Futurisk in 2003 by using ‘Push Me Pull You (Pt. 2)’ on the delightful Colette # 5 DFA Comp CD). Minimal Wave’s own history with Futurisk runs a few years back, starting first by including an unreleased 1982 version of the track ‘Meteoright’ on the label’s ‘Found Tapes’ vinyl LP in 2007. Subsequently, Minimal Wave released the retrospective full-length vinyl ‘Player Piano’ LP to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary last year, culling material recorded between the years 1980 to 1982, with all of the tracks on their two 7-inch releases mixed in with rare studio recordings and early 4-track tapes. The Futurisk ‘Lonely Streets Remixes’ includes remixes by four of the band’s biggest fans, each of whom have a sound as iconic as the band themselves: Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Prince Language (DFA, Editions Disco) and Complexxion from the UK.

8. Release The Dub - A Mix For Michael Richards

Release The Dub - A Mix For Michael Richards

On the morning of September 11, 2001, my friend Michael Richards was working in his studio on the 92nd floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. He was a resident artist there as part of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's World Views program. Michael was an incredibly gifted artist and sculptor whose work addressed tragic aspects of African-American history through a poignant, poetic, and ultimately transcendant use of iconography. Ironically, much of his work dealt with flight, and the history of the Tuskegee Airmen, as a theme. Michael grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, and loved reggae. I originally met him through our mutual friend, the curator Franklin Sirmans, who knew that we would have this in common. Shortly after Michael's death, Franklin asked me to make a reggae mix to be played at a memorial gathering he was organizing at the Studio Museum of Harlem, where Michael was also an artist in residence, on September 23, 2001. Beginning with King Tubby's elegiac dub of The Aggrovators "I Shall Be Released" entitled "Release The Dub", the songs I gathered addressed the mood of mourning that we New Yorkers felt in the wake of the attacks, as well as the themes of love, war, struggle, hope, spirituality and release that are so beautifully expressed in Reggae music. This is the original recording of that mix. I thought that today, 11 years from the attack that took his and many others lives, was a fitting day to share this small memorial for Michael. I hope you can take the time to explore his powerful work and rich legacy. I miss him. Rest in PEACE Michael Richards, 8/2/1963 - 9/11/2001

16. Lindstrom - Where You Go I Go Too (Prince Language Remix) - Preview

Lindstrom - Where You Go I Go Too (Prince Language Remix) - Preview

A preview of the long-awaited Prince Language remix of Lindstrom's epic Where You Go I Go Too, which will finally see release on 12" vinyl and digital formats this Spring on The No Comprendo. Commisioned by Feedelity/Smalltown Supersound in early 2009, its release by the label was delayed due to a lack of other satisfactory mixes for a multi-remix package. Daniel Collas from the Phenomenal Handclap Band dropped in for a piano solo. It is 10 minutes 30 seconds long, and has been marinating as a secret weapon in Prince Language's DJ sets in the meantime. Cosmic Rave? Festival Disco? Space Minimal? What it is. Vinyl release features artwork by renowned graphic designer Kenzo Minami
