The idea of the Legends EP series first came to our label boss Matthew Anthony on the road from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Forrest in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, one of his favorite places to explore and recharge. He'd spent the previous years working on various music projects while becoming friends and discussing song ideas with respected artists like Bad Boy Bill and DJ Godfather. On that trip it dawned on him that the various dance music scenes might benefit by pausing to reflect on some of the many we now consider to be legends.
With the end goal being two songs, each produced collaboratively by himself and an artist he regards as a pioneer, humbly, both Bad Boy Bill and DJ Godfather accepted Matthew's invitation to the inaugural volume of The Legends EP. Turntablism.
Volume 1, Part 1 in our series pays respect to the art of Turntablism and how it played a role in Chicago and Detroit's evolution of House and Techno which in turn influenced the world. This EP travels back to the late 80's and 90's where Bad Boy Bill's spinning on four separate decks at once and DJ Godfather's scratching over Ghetto Tech, the genre he invented, saw no equals. The songs produced for us in this series are modern interpretations of windows to the past where the artists pay homage to the DJ and that original era where sync buttons weren't invented and the only way to get an acapella was a lucky day at your favorite record store.
"There's an untold number of dance music legends living in the world today and through the music we make together I hope to highlight a few while providing enjoyment on dance floors for club-goers and DJ's alike." - Matthew Anthony
