The Deli's NYC issue #44 is online!

Deli Readers,

I know, it seems like we put our latest issue out just the other day - but no, we haven't switched to monthly. It's just that the fall in NYC is a busy time for us, and with CMJ week and our NYC Synth Expo (linked to BEMF) coming up, there's a lot to write about.

Here's our 44th issue of The Deli NYC (one of our finest!). Check out cover band Stolen Jars, they'll be performing at one of the (several) Deli CMJ 2015 shows!

BOMBÓN X PELIGROSA Is the Dance Record You Need to End Your Summer

Peligrosa, Austin’s premier Latin electronic music collective, has just teamed up with Houston-based collective Bombón to release what is absolutely one of the can’t-be-missed beat records from Texas this year. Now, electronic music collective is a term that probably brings up images of a council of brightly colored rave-outfit bedecked youths sitting about a table in their most regal of kandi jewelry and discussing molly-related group policies (No? Just me?), but in Austin, that concept more often refers to the complex and eclectic crews of veteran electronic producers like Applied Pressure, Feedback Alliance and the legendary Peligrosa.

Peligrosa has been a shining beacon of fun, smart beats in Austin since their birth back in ’07, and just this year they have taken their hard-won production and music-industry acumen to the next logical step by creating Discos Peligrosa, their very own label.

This record, a split aptly titled BOMBÓN X PELIGROSA, is one of the first releases by Discos Peligrosa as a new label, and it features Peligrosa and Latin robot soul mates Bombón taking turns dropping killer tracks one after the other for 7 stellar pieces of future Latin dance music. Both of these groups are all about taking the traditional sounds of Latin instrumentals and song structures (especially beats) and melding and exploding them from their original states into the newtech, future-leaning world. Both crews are on point in their efforts toward this highly commendable endeavor with BOMBÓN X PELIGROSA, which is exciting and dynamic from end to end and is actually scientifically impossible to avoid dancing to (Being Ultra Music Expert Geniuses, we know this to be a fact.).

Of particularly special note on this record are the kick-off track “Chamba” by Bombón and “Santa Marta” from the Peligrosa side of things. “Chamba” comes in with a bit of a hip-hop meets Latin electronica thing, and whose oddly reassuring deep demon vocals anchor the track’s party vibe to somethin’ that’s fun-ly sinister (I get the evil toons from Who Framed Roger Rabbit dancing to it in my head). “Santa Marta,” on the other hand, starts out about as light and chill as a track can with some pan flute bars, but this being Peligrosa, it quickly transitions to some bouncy melodic dance mallet-work (something like a xylophone sounds like) and then to straight-out, nuts-ass electronic wonkiness at 1:11 in. Frankly though, that’s just my particular taste on this record when it comes to best tracks, because there is not a weak one in the bunch here. Slink-beat album-closer “Vientos” with it’s Atlantic City boardwalk in 2060 vibe almost knocked off “Chamba” for my top spot, and the weird warped hedonistic “Me Gusta” is definitely one of the best weed tracks since Madvillain’s “America’s Most Blunted.”

Get up on this thing below and blow your friends minds by dropping some of the most undeniably sick future dance music available in the world at yer next party instead of That Goddamned EDM again, and keep up with Peligrosa at their blog here, which is frequently updated and has some pretty damn decent writing if we do say so. Viva Peligrosa.

Premiere: Ghost & the City - Steady Trippin

The Oakland based soulful jazz ensemble, Ghost & the City has released a new song entitled, Steady Trippin. Here´s your chance to listen to an amazing local jazz group who has consistently released well composed, entrancing music!

Oakland outfit Ghost & the City is dedicated to elevating style and experience to create music that embodies elements of soul, trip-hop and jazz. Traveling across numerous musical genres to appeal to many tastes, Ghost & the City creates music that defies conventionality, yet solidifies a distinctive sound. Over the past five years, the project has successfully performed at venues all over the Bay Area, supporting such acts as Shabazz Palaces, Hiatus Kaiyote, Incognito and Marco Benevento. This year will see the release of Patchwork Soul, a 6-song EP that features fresh collaborations and a new direction.

Musician and composer, Ash Maynor and the awesome vocalist, Kia Fay have given us the opportunity to share this new song with you and we love the sound, style and vibe of this sensual trip hop inspired track. Steady Trippin is a free download via Soundcloud so you can listen to this track straight from your hard drive whenever you desire!

"Lyrically it reflects struggles with self-doubt as an artist, those moments when you're really just ready to throw in the towel. The concept of "Steady Trippin" comes from the idea of feeling caught in limbo, a place where you aren't walking but you're aren't quite falling, and yet you still find yourself moving forward" - Kia Fay

"With this tune we were trying to capture the ideal blend of jazz + trip-hop, both genres we've been exploring more with our new EP Patchwork Soul. The track features trumpeter Ross Eustis (Brass Magic, Guy Fox) doing what he does best, and largely reminiscent of Guru's Jazzmatazz volumes." - Ash Maynor

Ghost & the City has a string of local shows coming up. Make sure you catch this band live!

9/26 - OMF Festival w/ Anderson .Paak, Trails & Ways and more
11/6 - Leo's Music w/ Zakiya Harris
12/4 - Awaken Cafe w/ Guy Fox
12/5 - KALX Live

Starlight Kid Survival Guide and GABI play DNA Lounge - 9/25

The San Francisco based electro pop band, Starlight Kid will be performing Friday night at DNA Lounge, along with the local Emily Whitehurst fronted band, Survival Guide. Make sure you head out and support local artists!

Both ensembles will be supporting the Brooklyn based experimental songstress, GABI:

"Gabrielle Herbst's experiences writing for chamber orchestra and experiments in mixed instrumentation inspired her to develop a repertoire of short-form, vocal-centric compositions under the name Gabi. These solitary explorations in early 2013 with dual-track loop pedals led to the nine songs which composed the album, "Sympathy". Embracing the vast potential of the human voice as instrument, story and landscape, these open-ended sessions yielded a suite of compositions that captured Herbst's personal metamorphosis into Gabi. Which rendered past influences and new collaborations into a personal statement on the desire for human connectivity and emotional catharsis via an intimate exploration along the edges of common songwriting."

This is going to be a great show. If you're into highly experimental, female vocal based electro art rock, you should definitely do your best to make this show on September 25th at DNA Lounge!
