Decadent Decade :: House Shoes Puts Together ‘The First 10 Years Of The iN’ Mix For (iN)Sect Radio #27

From the digital desk of (iN)Sect Records

(iN)Sect Records out of Austin, TX, are currently celebrating their 13th year of putting out experimental/hip-hop/punk rock/noise music in the form of vinyl, Flexi-disc, frisbee, chip clips, shirts and cassettes.  House Shoes is a Detroit-born producer and DJ, who now lives in Los Angeles and runs the acclaimed record label, Street Corner Music. He has been a friend and supporter of the label for the last decade.  We asked House Shoes if he would be down to mix some songs from the first 10 years of our releases (2008-2018). He turned in an absolute beast of mix to mark a chapter in our history.  This mix of over 30 songs from our catalog includes songs by: J-1 tHE DEER, Ras G, House Shoes, aLive, Sir Froderick, Chanes, SelfSays, Guilty Simpson, Butcher Bear, Kinder, Muamin Collective and more. Check the tracklist and head over to insectrecords.org/podcast to listen and DL the mix for free.”

Starving Artists :: Evolve X Chef Mike Whip Up Some ‘Gourmet Dust’

While most artists are trying to figure out how to regain the momentum lost from COVID-19 and the pandemic, Evolve‘s only problem seems to be determining how not to flood his audience in his creative outputs.  Gourmet Dust marks his 5th offering in less than 6 months, with this one being a collaboration between himself and Detroit-based producer Chef Mike, and the quality has only risen as the quantity of releases within this short span of time grows.  The duo team up for some raw, gritty headbanger tracks reminiscent of that golden early 1990s stretch where what you said was just as important as how you said, and none of it mattered at all without gripping production behind it.  The Ibe Hustles feature is a nice touch, rounding out a brief but powerful sonic onslaught worth much more than the $1 they are charging for the record.  Get on that immediately, pass this one around for others to follow suit, and don’t sleep on your local underground kings.
