Juno releases Christmas 7″ featuring FaltyDL & JD Twitch
To celebrate Christmas 2011, the Juno Plus editorial staff have been entrusted with curating a festive release; a little present from all of us at Juno HQ, if you will.
For this project we decided to call on two of the producers who have consistently intrigued, confounded and surprised us in recent times: FaltyDL and JD Twitch.
Brooklyn-based producer FaltyDL has truly excelled this year, with You Stand Uncertain, his second album for Planet Mu complemented by a raft of reliably killer 12″s for Swamp 81, All City, and, most recently, Ninja Tune. Mr JD Twitch meanwhile has slowly been moulding the Optimo Music imprint into a must-check esoteric label, as well as putting out an increasingly varied array of his own productions including Cumbia edits and some illuminating Doubleheart material with Neil Landstrumm on NonPlus. Oh, and he put together a hugely entertaining Halloween mix together for us a month or so back.
We couldn’t press up a Christmas single without some kind of nod to the traditional music fare that comes at this time of year, so we scored a wonderfully atmospheric edit of a festive staple from Senor Twitch, entitled “Psylent Night”. The other side, or the Festivus side as we’ve unofficially dubbed it, features some more club-focused tackle in the shape of FaltyDL’s “Debris”.
The 7″ will come housed in lovely hand-numbered artwork designed by the talented James Kirkup and is pressed on crystal clear vinyl. Best of all, we’ll be giving it away free with any order on www.juno.co.uk.
