- Don Froth / Reflexed 12" / Remixes from Anthony Shakir, West Norwood Cassette Library & Don Froth Artwork donfroth on September 06, 2013 16:21
Releases on: Froth'n Records, West Norwood Cassette Library, UNO NYC, Phonica White, & Days of Being Wild.
The latest 12" from the Froth'n US label overseen by the wonderfully named Don Froth is an almighty sound clash between London, Detroit and Los Angeles. Last seen providing the bruk house anthem "Lifting Weights" to We Are Family Vol. 1, the maiden 12? release from WNCL Recordings, Froth returns to the scene of his Reflex EP for UNO with a quartet of heavy duty remixes. Froth himself provides two reworks and he's complemented by the presence of Mr West Norwood Cassette Library and the all round Detroit legend that is Anthony 'Shake' Shakir who adds that extra touch of class with a typically manic percussive take on the title track. - JUNO
“The REflex EP pulls from the seedier sides of house, techno, and all things bass-inclined for a five-track exploration of body-jerking sounds” - FACT
“’VAP’ is another left turn for the label. The just-under-five- minute tune deftly matches time-slowed synth madnesswith the kind of big, booming bass sounds that have marked some of UK label Night Slugs’ more heavy-hitting material” - Pitchfork
“Los Angeles’ Don Froth has steadily made a name for himself over the years as a capable dance music adventurer across a handful of releases for West Norwood Casette Library, Phonica, and his own Froth’n imprint” - XLR8R
Originally launched as a limited vinyl pressing sold only in surf shops, Froth’s since released on Phonica White label (the diabolical 10,000 CC) and West Norwood Cassette Library - getting airplay on BBC Radio 1, RINSE FM, KCRW, WFMU and landing numerous compilations. Along side engineering duties for DJ Harvey Froth has been featured in MixMag (Bass tune of the month) Wire Magazine & Evento. He’s garnered support from Gilles Peterson, Jamie XX, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mas- sive Attack (3D), Headhunter, Mr.C, Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space), 2562, DJ KZA of Force of Nature, Juno Plus, Hardwax, SOTU, Clone and more.
