“Dark & ruff beats”.
Delroy Edwards, the Los Angeles-based producer who caught our ear last year with a trio of ghetto-house inspired EPs on Ron Morelli’s reliable L.I.E.S. imprint, has now announced the launch of his own label.
L.A. Club Resource will kick off with a release from Edwards himself, a 12″ comprising two untitled tracks described as “dark & ruff beat tracks for the club”. The 30-second snippet below suggests a synapse-shuffling slab of lo-fi 4/4 in the L.I.E.S. mould, with the accompanying VHS-quality visuals underlining the analogue aesthetic. Hear that clip below or head to Rush Hour for elongated previews of both tracks.
The label’s next release will be provided by newcomer DJ Harlow, while future output could come from Parisian producer Low Jacks and Chicago house name Gene Hunt, as Resident Advisor reports [via Juno Plus].
LACR001 will appear on 12″ vinyl in October.
