News: Dday One | P & S, Limited 7″ Vinyl, Out Now

Get Your Copy Here

A side is classic Dday One. The Playdate stems are cut, flipped, rearranged, and hammered out on an sampler. Haunting and evocative, and the Playdate dub ethos is filtered through a hip hop aesthetic.

The B features the very first moments of the Playdate concept. Mssrs Hertz and Ruptash were invited to Brooklyn and met Yusuke Yamamoto (Chimp Beams) and Jeremy Wilms (Chin Chin, Akoya Afrobeat, Fela Show Band) in the studio for the first time. Stems from this session were used for the “Peabody & Sherman‘s Playdate: Dub Workshop Vol. 1″ EP, and parts of this track, in particular, were used for the track “Drifting”. “Peaking” is more or less the track as played, with some editing, dubbing, and the addition of some harmonica parts recorded in Oakland for a completely different session.

Mix: Dday One – Mostly Instrumental – Find Magazine (Netherlands)

Dday One – Mostly Instrumental by The Find Mag on Mixcloud

“Mostly Instrumental”
is a sparkling new The Find guest mix by the Los Angeles based beat maestro. It’s one hour worth of raw drum-heavy, sample-based instrumentals, including material by the likes of DJ Krush, Four Tet, DJ Shadow, Mr. Cooper, Damu The Fudgemunk, Long Arm, Latyrx, Mark The 45 King, and of course a ton of Dday One cuts and (unreleased) remixes.

Instrumental insanity from front to back. As of right now Dday One is recovering from a successful open heart surgery, so we wish him all the best! Eager for more? Then we highly recommend to check his vinyl releases like “Loop Extensions,” “Heavy Migration” & “Mood Algorithms.”
