Li’ll Bo Tweak is the nom du beat of UK house heads Trevor Loveys and Chris Belsey. Their chunky, funky productions for the likes of Made To Play and Loungin have jacked bodies for years as the “secret weapons” of discerning DJs around the planet, including A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs of Fool’s Gold, who commissioned a Li’ll Bo Tweak remix of Alexander Robotnick’s “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” back in ’09 (and to this day insist it’s one of the most slept on jams in the label’s catalog.)
The FG crew always hoped to drop a full Tweak release one day, and got their wish in the form of this brand new Snap Crackle N Pop EP. Here, Loveys goes solo under the LBT moniker and cranks the Tweak factor even higher. From the title track’s bassbin funk to the dancehall crunch of “The Beat Goes” and the facemelting disco madness of “Lost And Found,” these are not your everyday dancefloor weapons, kiddos. It’s time to get freaky…
Grab LBT’s latest on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
Check out a brand new Fifteenth original, “Get You Down,” off Mike B’s new Scion A/V compilation, Los Angeles: Tite At Nite out next Tuesday, 1/31. Download for free thanks to the SA/V crew, and start your weekend off right!
The enormous Bart B More remix of Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High” has quickly become a DJ favorite (peep Diplo opening Holy Ship! with it and dropping on his radio show), and the band loves it too. So much, in fact, that they decided to film a video for the remix, with frontwoman Tiombe Lockhart once again pulling double duty on both sides of the camera to direct.
Watch it up top, grab the remix on iTunes or Beatport, and check more CZ vids (and Tiombe’s directorial tips) here.
Cubic Zirconia will be playing their first hometown show of the new year (and their first since opening SBTRKT’s sold-out Music Hall Of Williamsburg gig) on Saturday, February 4th at Drom. They’ll be shooting another vid there as well, so look sharp! We’ll see you there. Read More
