Curtis Lowe (aka Conor Cook) unveils "Breaking Me" single from debut EP

Curtis Lowe is a new electronic music project from NYC-based producer Conor Cook.  The debut EP, Sad Bangers Vol. 1, is due January 18 via the Spotify Direct program. The first single “Breaking Me” (streaming below) was unveiled today, unveiling a melodic house sound with the souful vocals of Naomi Wild. The EP was produced by Cook, who also plays guitar on every track. The songs were all co-written by Cook and the featured vocalists. 

Cook explains: “I wanted to create modern a sound that is based around classic house elements and good songs.  I’ve been writing with some great musicians and friends over the last year and am excited to begin releasing music under Curtis Lowe. The songwriting happened in a variety of sessions in NYC and LA, but most of the production was done alone in my apartment in Brooklyn over the last year. I drew a lot of the inspiration for the sonics of the project from 90’s/Chicago house music, married with modern production elements, and darker songwriting themes.

New Johnny Utah EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Z Tapes Records has compiled a collection of Johnny Utah singles, and released them as an EP/cassette, Big Dogs. A funky, R&B/soul vibe permeates throughout these five tracks. Mixing revealing,  bedroom-pop songwriting with omnipresent, potent grooves creates an instantly infectious energy. Sounds like the Big Dogs gots some bite.





New Track: "Tinted Vision" - Night Bloom

The creative collaboration of J Termini and Patrick Schlitzer, a.k.a. Night Bloom, recently shared a new single. “Tinted Vision” swims in a fluid, R&B groove. With a slinky, soulful, harmonious sound, it's a laidback, dancing track, bringing out both a playful and a sensitive side. Embracing the idea of moving on and living in the moment, while caught up on a person from the past, there’s a tug of war between understanding a theory and putting it into practice.





Sun Hop Fat’s New “Elephant Parade” Gives Funky Twist to Ethiopian Jazz

Listening to SF afrobeat collective Sun Hop Fat makes you feel confident, like you’re on a mission and you know exactly where you’re headed. Pop on tracks like “Rhinosaur” and “Silly Putty” and it feels like you’re driving an undulating road, multicolored images calling you to dance or to ease you deeper into your chair, eyes closed toes tapping. This ten piece instrumental band tells stories without words. They’re Ethiopian jazz meets American funk, a touch of bossa nova and a little psychedelic twist. Luckily for us, they’re playing December 8th at The Independent with Royal Jelly Jive. Put your swaying, dancing, tapping shoes on and catch em. -Michelle Kicherer

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Great Time

With a band name like Great Time, the trio of Jill Ryan, Donnie Spackman, and Zack Hartman have a lot to live up to, which they doubled down on with the naming of their debut LP Great Album – an eclectic mix of danceable grooves, soulful slow jams, and intimate bedroom pop, enhanced by hints of psychedelia, momentary rock freak-outs, and guest bars and vocals. The band is continuing to go all in with the construction of their very own recording studio on a farm outside of Philly, which was also supported by a successful Kickstarter campaign. Below is their latest video for the track “Lazy Lilly,” and you can catch them this upcoming Tuesday, November 20 at Johnny Brenda’s. But first, check out our recent Featured Artist(s) interview with the Great Time gang HERE!
