The Gomma label looks to London buddies Daniel Avery and The Deadstock 33s (AKA Justin Robertson) for their second release, ‘Nylon Icon’. Daniel Avery and The Deadstock 33s is a marriage of old school dance music experience with up coming young talent. The man behind the Deadstock 33s moniker, Justin Robertson, is an electronic music legend, emerging form the early-90s house scene to become one of the UK’s most credible DJ/producers, touring the world with the Chemical Brothers and releasing tracks under his Lionrock name.
Now as The Deadstock 33s, he joins forces with rising talent, Daniel Avery. Avery co-runs the Kill Em All night at Fabric and has had recent releases for key labels, including Headman’s Relish imprint and Throne of Blood. The latest Daniel Avery & The Deadstock 33s release kicks off with title track, ‘Nylon Icon’, a bass driven, electro influenced cut that draws on dark vocals and atmospheric. Second of the three original tracks comes in the shape of ‘New Moon’, a record that journeys into off-kilter percussive house with a twist. Finally, it’s ‘Eric Zann Revisited’, which sees the pair in funk-fuelled yet spacy mode with this bumpin retro bass workout. The remixes on the single come courtesy of Filthy Dukes and People Get Real, the former reworks ‘Eric Zann Revisited’ into a fevered, acid fuelled offering whilst the latter takes ‘New Moon’ and reinvents it as a slo-mo Balearic electro killer. Out 22nd June.
