Delroy Edwards launches new label

delroy_edwards
Los Angeles-based producer Delroy Edwards is planning to launch his own music label – L.A. Club Resource.

The label will be launched with a solo two-track EP that Edwards himself produced. LACR001 is a 12” due to be released on October 1. Edwards will follow this up with an EP by DJ Harlow with three variations of “Waxwork”.

According to Resident Advisor, possible future work for the label could come from the likes of Parisian producer Low Jacks and Gene Hunt of Chicago house music fame.

The DJ burned up the airwaves last year on the L.I.E.S. imprint of Ron Morelli after the two worked together at A-1 Records in New York City.

Edwards, who bears the name of a Jamaican drug dealer who was murdered in Brooklyn in 1985, has been making waves in Europe and toured with Morelli and Steve Summers on L.I.E.S’ Non-Stop Tour earlier this year.

He is among a group of producers who has gained notoriety for a sound that is more “nebulous and incongruous” than other dance music sounds around.

Among his other tracks are ‘Heart & Soul‘ and ‘4 Club Use Only‘.

British_music

House music is being described as the biggest thing in South Africa for young people and now it is catching on in Britain and influencing musicians in the UK.

House music is as big as hip hop used to be in South Africa and is very commercial heard in shops, taxis, bars, parties, and on mobile phones. Some of the biggest names include Brothers of PeaceOskidoBruce Sebitlo, and Black Coffee.

House music first evolved from the Chicago club scene in the 1980′s, made popular in discotheques catering to black and latino communities before moving to DetroitNew York CityNew Jersey, and Miami. It then made its way into Britain but now the music is taking on a different sound – the sound of South Africa.

Soul and funk are major elements but so are percussionbass drumsynthesizer bassline,electronic drumselectronic effectspop samples, and reverb.

In Britain the music was first influenced by black dancers doing a move known as “foot shuffling” or “cutting shapes”. It became part of mainstream pop and dance worldwide since the 1990s.

House music is very popular in the Midlands and north of England in Manchester,Birmingham, and Nottingham but has also gained a foothold in London clubs.
