This week in dance music: We were on the ground for Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd’s headlining set at Coachella, Apple debuted its high-tech Spatial audio with an indeed very spatial mix from Jeff Mills, NorCal’s Northern Nights festival announced that it will be the first U.S fest to feature multiple on-site cannabis dispensaries, Calvin Harris announced this summer we’ll all be funking, waving and bouncing once more, David Guetta made it clear that he will just never stop putting numbers on the board, Aloe Blacc sang “Wake Me Up” in three languages on the fourth anniversary of Avicii’s death, Kaskade and Deadmau5 hit the apex of DanceMix Show Airplay chart with their song “Escape,” and Galantis graced us with their remix of Roxette’s 1991 classic “Fading Like a Flower.”
Announced today, house music icon Kerri Chandler unveils the first details of his forthcoming new album, “Spaces and Places” A global celebration of club and sound system culture, “Spaces and Places” has been meticulously created by the New Jersey producer/DJ over several years on location at twenty-four of the world’s most distinguished nightclubs; each track built on the space’s individual relationship with Kerri, often through decades of live shows or appearances and in the process capturing unique rhythmic and emotional nuances.
A record of unreleased Kerri Chandler tracks that feels like it would have once found a home on a Downtown 161 special edition (like this, this or this). Lost & Found Vol 1 is a collection of “lost” tracks that Chandler recorded but never released, dating apparently from the late 1990s and early ’00s — if we’re to make the distinction, right in the wheelhouse of Chandler’s classic era. Each of the four tracks here will make someone jump up and sing, from the quirky “What Will We Do” to the cosmic disco-accented deep house of the slinky and irresistible “Tonight.” It seems awkward to make the comparison but the deep, vibing cut “Into The Night” sounds like a distant relative of Fingers’ “Can You Feel It” and would fit in largely the same slot in a set if the latter were new today. Warmth, heat and icy stabs all over the place.
