This premiere is the perfect reason to transform your house into a club or just a dancefloor.

Our beloved Kim Ann Foxman is here with her amazing debut EP for (Emotional) Especial, called “Blood Moon”; an ode to the power of the moon. Kim Ann Foxman needs no introduction. The New York-based producer, DJ, singer, dancer and label boss (Firehouse, SELF:TIMER) is one of a kind. Αs a veteran of San Francisco ’90s heyday and a mighty clubber, her music is blending the best elements of raw house, propulsive 303 material, emotive techno and even the occasional hint of trance shaping wonderful tunes.

Today we are really excited to premiere the EPs title track, A-Side’s first one, “Blood Moon”. The track is a killer! An oriental mist is spreading along the whole track, being accompanied by rhythmic breaks, 303 acid basslines, diverse synths creating a mystical atmosphere, ’90s old school vibes, an underground feeling and Kim’s foxy vocals. The lyrics were written during the Blood Moon over London. Blast the track above and enjoy this special ride. Make me lust, make me bleed.

The “Blood Moon” 12”, which comes complete with a stellar set of remixes by Roza Terenzi, Dawl & Sween and Violet, will drop in May via (Emotional) Especial. Pre-order it here.

Lena Platonos: “Hoping By Shopping (Kim Ann Foxman Remix)”

TAGS: ,

Last year, the ever-excellent San Francisco label Dark Entries has reissued another sublime album from Greek electronic pioneer Lena Platonos, her debut solo album “Μάσκες Ηλίου” (“Sun Masks”). Originally recorded in 1984, the “Sun Masks” LP was Platonos’ first record to feature her own lyrics and vocals. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the Roland TR 808 drum machine and Yamaha C60 synthesizer. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 1980s.

Dark Entries has recruited four of their favorite producers to remix their favorite tracks from “Sun Masks”. The remix EP also features a great new remix of “Hoping By Shopping” by New York-based DJ/producer/vocalist and Firehouse Recordings boss Kim Ann Foxman. In her capable hands, the spacey robotic original track is transformed into a dynamic deep house workout, tough and dreamy all at once. You can now stream it exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

Lena Platonos’ “Sun Masks” Remixes EP, which also includes three finely crafted remixes by Avalon Emerson, Lena Willikens and Borusiade, is out now on Dark Entries. Buy it here.
