What the The Coost crew are listening to right now….
Closer to home and close to my heart in this edition of Coost Cuts, as we serve up a few lashings of melt-in-your-mouth techno courtesy of Frankston wunderkinds Sleep D.
OK, my eagle-eyed friends, Bacon was released on Death Strobe Records in 2012, but it’s mentioned here for context. As high school mates, Maryos Syawish and Corey Kikos started out as DJs on a deep house and techno bent, before founding the Butter Sessions blog, which became a record label in 2013 with the release of Sleep D’s The Jackal EP. Your scribe slept on that one, but fortunately in 2016, The Jackal made a return.
This music is not for the faint of heart. As sparse as it is unforgiving, these are the type of tunes that are best consumed in dark places. Basements, warehouses and a certain supernatural amphitheatre are a few that spring to mind.
The boys have wasted no time, bringing up release number nine in October with a tasty morsel courtesy of Adelaide misfits DJ Dogg and Furious Frank. In three years the label has pulled together a who’s who of the local house and techno scene, including Cale Sexton and Dan White, and the output shows no signs of slowing. They’ve already attracted attention further afield, having teamed up with the likes of DJ Fett Burger and Jayda G.
World domination? Unlikely. An Australian Sex Tags protégé? Perhaps. One thing’s for sure: I’ll be adding more slabs of Butter to my record collection.
