about

It was Memorial Day Weekend 2016, and the sun shined bright over the Detroit River. Pontchartrain stepped up to the decks at the Red Bull stage at Movement Electronic Music Festival donning his infamous "Detroit vs. Itself" t-shirt. His first song through the Rane rotary mixer was a dubplate made specifically for his set: “Afterlife”. It’s a brilliantly executed balearic daytime disco rework that warrants the praise of summer anthem that it’s earning.

On the flip is “Pool”, an equally sunny slomo beatdown rework from Blair French. It's a delightful blend of cerebral and soulful, and is finally getting a release after being originally championed by Peter Croce on his Le Mellotron Paris set back in early 2018.


DIGITAL RELEASE IS EXCLUSIVE TO BANDCAMP

--------------------------------

"ALL KILLER NO FILLER, both cuts get the Phat Phil seal of approval...
Will play and say on both of these..." -Phat Phil [NuNorthern Soul]

"I really love [Blair's] slow burner track, and the Prince flip is dope too." -Andi Hanley

"Liking them both. Good daytime tackle." -Dicky Trisco [Disco Deviance]

"These are right up my street, slo-mo chuggers all the way.
Really reminds me of some stuff I was really digging about 5-6 years back with the likes of Ben La Desh et al pushing that slo-mo disco sound.
Brings me back. Full support on my end." -Igor B [Breathing Room]

"Things are about hotter at some outdoor parties this summer, great release!!" -Jose Marquez [Fania Records/Tribe]

"amazing release. Both sides are awesome." -Tony Heynen [Global Riddims]
