Beats In Space introduce Dukes of Chutney
Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space imprint debuts the new John Paul Jones and Dustin Lynn collaboration Dukes of Chutney.
After Tim Sweeney finally set the rumor mill circulating the launch of his own Beats In Space label straight in 2011 with the debut release of Parfait Tirage by Paradis, New York’s favourite deadpan radio jock has slowly but surely over two years cultivated the now established BIS aesthetic. Following three 12″s last year from Secret Circuit, Phillip Lauer (aka Brontosaurus) and the follow up Hémisphère EP by Paradis, the WNYU 89.1FM spawned label has undergone a watershed 2013.
Secret Circuit delivered the Tactile Galactics LP, while DFA’s Jee Day and Australian beardyman Tornado Wallace debuted on the label, as did the three Japanese artists in Gonno and the Crystal & S. Koshi collaboration. Now BIS presents Dukes of Chutney and their debut Domino, a duo the label describe as California born brothers from other cosmic mothers who met surfing over a decade ago. Made up of John Paul Jones and Dustin Lynn, the former is known for his edits and remixes as Tom Croose, while the latter, a filmmaker, boasts productions for the late skull-obsessed fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
According to Beats In Space the Domino EP is the result, and hoarded concoction, of the duo’s field recordings from travels to places like Mexico and “hunting for surf along the Icelandic coast”. The EP also features vocals from Berlin-based vocalist and performance artist Elle P who BIS liken to Grace Jones, Meredith Monk and Trish Keenan. A press release states that Domino deviates slightly from the dancefloor conventions of previous Beats In Space material, but also transports the listener to the most serene and psychedelic catalog setting so far. For a taste of the forthcoming EP, take a listen to the title cut here played by Sweeney on Beats In Space radio during his weekly Tuesday night slot some time between 10:30pm and 1:00am.
Beats In Space will release Domino in November 4 in the UK and November 5 everywhere else.
