Live at Lake Paradise / Cassette Tape - c62 / PAR030

Chicago Jim / Dakota Bones

This release stems from a live pretty all right ‘showcase’ in late 2012. Two tall dudes from the midwest both operating on Akai MPCs & Juno 106s recorded straight to cassette tape at DIY space Lake Paradise (home to pretty all right, TEEN RIVER, & lake paradise records,), this raw document of electronic dance music will not win an award for its fidelity, but CAN you get down to the dirty handclaps & blown out kick drums?! duh~ Chicago Jim throws down a mixture of pillow-y synths, with nods to kraftwerk, giorgio, & Chicago house’s off-the-cuff drum machine programming. On the flip side, Detroit’s Dakota Bones brings a lounge vibe mixed with cinematic string patches, soulful vocal snippets, occasional sped up funk horns & basslines, & the firm yet pleasant punch of the 4 on the 4loor kick drum. Bones seamlessly glues together several flavors of sexy for this dance set, which differs greatly from his debut tape for pretty all right last year.
