Headphone breaking Boiler Room sensation Spencer Parker's back with another set of sturdy club workouts that are perfect for the DJ in your life. The DJ in your life likes raw, tracky house records right? Yeah? Great! No? Get outta here!
Dropping on Radio Slave's esteemed Rekids imprint, the No More Silly Club Songs 12" does what it says on the tin. This is heady house for house heads.
You can tune into the rough and ready A side right here and read an interview with Spencer himself below.
THUMP: Have you fixed your headphones yet?
Spencer Parker: Yes! I was gutted as they were my favourite Pioneer 'phones too! Prior to that I'd had them about five years and had taken them all around the world from the heat of Dubai to the cold of Helsinki, dropped them, stood on them, and more—and they always survived! But what can I say, it's called Boiler Room for a reason! And my show was actually shot in a basement in what was the boiler room of a swimming pool, so the insane heat of that room plus the fact I had to wear them in a kind of weird way due to some problems with the mixer that night, meant they never stood a chance! But now I have another pair of exactly the same model again so I'm happy.
What's wrong with silly club songs?
Absolutely nothing at all, I love them. I just got a bit sick and tired of pretentious artists trying to be overly clever and produce EPs that were full of tracks that were 112bpm, or had a volume fade intro, or were so distorted (on purpose) that they were utterly unplayable. First and foremost I am a FAN of house/disco/techno, and I started collecting records to remind me of fun nights out I'd had on the dancefloor. These are the sort of records I like and the records I feel stand the test of time, the records that DJ's love to play because they work on the dance floor, and dancers like to dance to. So, I thought it was time to make a few of these records, exclusively for my sets, that are not especially clever or madly intricate—but simply work in the club—hence the title. I did exactly that and gave a couple to friends like Radio Slave and Ryan Elliott too and when Matt (Radio Slave) said he was starting Rekids up again and I was more than happy to sign them over.
What's wrong with silly love songs?
There's nothing with them either! I adore a good love song and my top 3 love songs of all time are as follows:
Whitensake - Is This Love?
Patrick Swayze - She's Like the Wind
Bagga Worries - Ride Di Punani
No More Silly Club Songs arrives on Rekids on February 19th.
