Last night we read that Scott Hardkiss had died. We looked up to the Hardkiss Brothers in a big way when we were coming up in the young San Francisco dance scene. I think it’s fair to say we idolized them.
So it’s not only sad to learn that Scott has died … it hits close to home.
In 2000 we had the privilege to remix “Raincry” for release on Dorigen. Here’s the remix for free download. Doesn’t touch the original, but still one of our better remixes from that era.
Still a slim hope that Scott has faked his own death for publicity? Fingers crossed … not quite ready to accept the alternative.
New on Beatport, with a brilliant remix from Issac Zdo. Deep grooves and orchestral sneak attacks!
Jondi & Spesh have a trio of releases in the Loöq Records pipeline, all of them deep and progressive. First at bat is “Cycle Three” — a deep groover with an orchestral “sneak attack.” Issac reworks it into a bigger room experience with his usual masterful production techniques.
Here’s an advance listen. Out March 6 exclusively on Beatport, general release March 20th.
Following “Cycle Three” is a track called “Church” (with Steve McGrath and Mariana remixes). The last in the trilogy will be “My Kicks” — also remixed by Mariana.
Jondi & Spesh’s latest “Tastemaker 10″ has just been published on Beatport. Great tracks from Ishome, Juan Sanchez, Alan Live, and many others. The Hermanez remix of Jallah is just incredible.
I recently finished compiling royalty statements for all the artists on Loöq Records, an activity I do twice a year. Even with the custom database I designed specifically for the task, it's difficult and takes a long time. We receive reports from our various distributors -- detailed spreadsheets with a row for every iTunes download, streaming music click, mobile ringtone, youtube view, etc.
So jondiandspesh.com has a new look, as you may have noticed. Welcome! We’ll be bringing you charts, new releases, music commentary, rants, and a monthly dose of Loöq Radio. Follow this site and stay progressive.
