A party just isn’t a party without music, is it? Thus it is in the spirit of celebration that !K7 Records launches a series of free EPs to round out their 27th year in business. The label has curated a choice selection of exclusive tracks from their current roster as well as recent contributors to the DJ-Kicks series for a collection of music that represents !K7’s position at the vanguard of electronic music. Contributing artists include Hercules And Love Affair, Apparat, Motor City Drum Ensemble, New Look, Brandt Brauer Frick, Wolf + Lamb & Soul Clap, When Saints Go Machine, and a new project presented by Will Saul, Close.
 
Each double-sided EP will be available for free download at www.k7-27.com/tracks, with high bitrate versions available at www.beatport.com.  A new EP will be posted each Tuesday through October 16th. All of the exclusive music will then be collected on an extremely limited (1000 copies worldwide) box set along with some very special extra treats, available exclusively through the !K7 web store.
 
27!K7 Exclusives is a chance to say thank you to fans of the label, a celebration of !K7’s excellent team of collaborators, and a look forward at the vibrant artists who comprise the label’s future. Turn the music up, it’s time to celebrate.

When Saints Go Machine

“Hos Mig Igen” (feat. Coco O.)
 
When Saints Go Machine's tactile and human take on electronic pop has earned the group (bona fide stars in their home country of Denmark) a reputation as artists to watch among taste makers internationally. On this non-album cover version of a Danish pop hit originally performed by Xander, the group enlists vocalist Coco O of the rising group Quadron for a radical re-interpretation that maintains the out-front melodic component of the original while adding a degree of experimentation and studio pyrotechnics (not to mention virtuosic vocal performances) for a truly arresting listening experience.
Motor City Drum Ensemble
“Space Cadets”
 
Few artists meld a traditionalist sensibility with innovation as well as Motor City Drum Ensemble. Clearly a student of classic dance music (think Detroit, to which his name is a nod), MCDE nonetheless manages to imbue his productions with a freshness that eludes anything that could be called a throwback. On the K7-27 exclusive track "Space Cadets," a synthesized bass line and a wordless vocal sample chase each other over a bouncy vintage drum machine pattern that pulls the listener gently but firmly to the dance floor.

Video/MP3: Jack Davey of J*DaVeY Announces 3-part EP

Courtesy Audible Treats.

Jack Davey, the powerful, sultry frontwoman for electro-sex Los Angeles duo J*DaVeY, will release a 3-part series of EP’s that will show fans a completely different side of her than they’re used to. L0-F! Side A, which features a gritty, frenetic energy, based on what Jack describes as “a girl, her shitty guitar, and introspective songwriting,” will be released on October 2nd.

L0-F! Side B, which features more instrumentation, more advanced guitar techniques, and production by Jack’s boyfriend, Joey Strat of The Knux, will be released on November 6th. A deluxe version containing both sides, along with three bonus songs, and a special booklet will be released on December 11th. To accompany the album announcement, today Jack Davey is releasing Side A standout track "Howl At The Moon," with a music video directed by her longtime friend Devin Joplin in collaboration with creative directorJasmine Benjamin.

Although J*DaVeY’s sound has continuously evolved over the years with each subsequent release, Jack Davey’s departure from her group’s lush, sexually-charged electronic soundscape is a big one. Over the past two years, Jack has been working on trading in her usual hip hop and soul-based aesthetic for a more straight to the gut sound, inspired by such greats as Nirvana, Lou Reed, and David Bowie. In the process, Jack taught herself how to play a Squire Strat and traded in the fancy studio experience for a DIY one, where she deftly stole precious moments to record in her Koreatown apartment’s walk-in closet during the few moments her newborn baby was asleep. "This creative process was unlike any other I've ever experienced," explains Davey. She further elaborates, "I was hearing a raw and gritty rock sound in my head and knew that I would have to create it myself in order to get exactly what I was imagining. I've grown as a songwriter, producer and guitar player and I wanted to showcase that with a new sonic playground."

The project's debut single, "Howl At The Moon," is distinctly recognizable by its groovy and infectious guitar riff. Davey cites her main inspirations for the song being Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Bessie Smith, as well as the approach that "less is definitely more. In this day and age, everyone is so over the top to disguise the fact that they aren’t really that interesting." Davey displays an unwavering confidence with lyrics such as "You don't know nothing/ 'Til you've heard the call/ No matter the moon now/ I can make it fall." Says Jack, “The song is about being fierce and having unwavering confidence no matter what the circumstance may be. Seizing each day. Or night.”
