CGI004




CGI004, a 12" EP by Alex Falk, is now available for direct order from CGI.  To place an order send an email to CGIrecordsATL [at] gmail [dot] com - it will be in shops internationally on March 10th, 2014.



Tennessee Techno: Alex Falk brings the sound in purified form. His approach has already piqued the interest of many influential DJs and producers, and the track "PTR" from his debut EP on Proper Trax is among the selections included on Hessle Audio co-founder Pangaea's Fabriclive 73 mix.

Falk's previous releases have focused on punishing, pulsing, synthetic techno. For his CGI EP, we are treated to another side of Falk's sound as he allows a bit more 'house' into the mix. The release kicks off with "GF", a relentless assault consisting of little more than a repurposed vocal from a young pop star, distorted drums, and ceaseless energy. This beating gives way to the caress of "Foam Party", in which bubbling synth chords carry us to a place far away from the mindless EDM-raves from which the name was derived.

Flip it over and the energy ramps back up with "BF", another strong track built around a pop-vocal edit. Liquid synth chords stab and mutate with the driving rhythm underneath, creating a truly brilliant dance track that's sure to fill any floor. The energy once again is calmed as we fall into "Miley's Plateau", a shuffled, dubby synth track coming across like a housed up Vladislav Delay, rounding out a truly diverse EP which, true to CGI's mission, finds cohesion in the contrast.






Tracklist:
A1. GF
A2. Foam Party

CGI003

CGI003, a 12" EP by Will Azada, is now available for direct order from CGI.  To place an order send an email to CGIrecordsATL [at] gmail [dot] com - it will be in shops internationally on January 6th, 2014.


Audio Clips:


After exploring over 6 hours worth of unreleased original material from the relentlessly prolific and ever expanding production catalog of Will Azada, CGI is extremely proud to present these 3 stand-out cuts that represent a depth of production skill and aesthetic range unparalleled in today's over-saturated dance music landscape.

Confronting the clichés head-on, Azada breathes new life into tried-and-true templates of jacking, industrial funk and synth-y groovers with his remarkable ear for arrangement and sense of movement, masterfully exploiting the infinitely renewable resource of subtle variations that he continuously unfolds throughout the tracks' durations.

The material runs the gamut from the stark, throbbing, industrial workout "The Whip" to the melody-driven, synth-fueled ecstasy of "Michalski's Theme" and the chord-driven, vocal-chopped house of "Cliché." The fact that an EP this unique and diverse can also feel so unified is a testament to the vision on display here.


Tracklist:
A1. Cliché
A2. Michalski's Theme
B1. The Whip

CGI002

CGI002, a 12" single by Jerome, is now available for direct order from CGI.  To place an order send an email to CGIrecordsATL [at] gmail [dot] com - it will be in shops internationally on December 9th, 2013.


STREAM:



Having fully devoted the better part of 2 decades tearing music apart from every conceivable angle and putting it back together as only he can, the wanderer also known as JEROME has constructed some of the tuffest house abstractions using only what will fit in the backseat of his '81 Rabbit.  Not much is known about this lazy magnet but his sound is indeed magnetic, huge round bass lines ground the unrestrained dubby house experiments happening around it.  The results produce a hypnotic and moving dancefloor experience that can only occur in the heat of the moment by capturing an improvised performance such as the takes found on these recordings.  Massive 20+ minute live takes were sent to CGI Records HQ where they were edited down and the 2 most powerful cuts were chosen to be pressed onto this special limited edition white hand-stamped white label 12".

CGI001

CGI001, a split 12" with Cc and Golden Donna, is now available from CGI.  To place an order send an email to CGIrecordsATL [at] gmail [dot] com






Video for Cc's "Calvino Italo" by James Murray





CGI is proud to present the long overdue vinyl debut of Cc, one of the most talented DJ's and producers currently working outside of the limelight.  This release follows up 'Up Wind', his outstanding 2012 digital EP for JASS, and precedes his forthcoming debut 12' EP for Proper Trax.

Designed to appeal to DJs and House fans seeking hard, funky, and effective club weapons, Cc's sound is informed by years spent honing his skills in clubs in Chicago (as heard on the funky and direct house workout of 'Calvino Italo') and as a resident DJ for No Pain In Pop in London (the UK Garage rhythms adapted to Cc's own deep and distinct sonic pallette on 'Shackles').  Cc now holds it down in the Southern states as a resident at Atlanta's HUNGER club night and Savannah's Cape Fear.

The flip-side of the record contains 2 tracks by Golden Donna, an incredibly unique and talented producer who is following up last year's stunning debut LP for Not Not Fun with two deep, moving, and melodic cuts of some extremely adventurous and almost ambient electro. Rich, pronounced melodic textures encourage deep introspection as they collide with uncommonly fresh rhythms, making this a workout for the mind as well as the body.
