RS012: Lemi Vice’s and Knife Fight’s new The Knife Vice Moombahton EP Remixes is out now!

Lemi Vice and Knife Fight curate a 6 track remix project of their wildly popular Knife Vice Moombahton EP!

Last month, Rad Summer released one our most popular projects to date: Lemi Vice and Knife Fight’s collaboration the Knife Vice Moombahton EP.  It seemed as if overnight the EP exploded all over the internet with its bouncy drums and huge basslines, and by the end of the first week it resided firmly in the top 10 of Beatport’s electro house releases.  Not being ones to let a good thing die too soon, the Knife Vice boys have curated this bananas six track remix release.  With remixes from Red Mob, jFET, Sputnik, Filthy Disco, John Larner, and Huxley, standouts “Gorilla Revolution” and “Moombrah” get makeovers that span house, techno, dubstep, and moombahcore.  If you enjoyed original, this remix EP definitely ups the ante!

Lemi Vice
Over the past decade, Lemi Vice has established himself as respected musician throughout the Midwest. Never one to settle into a single style of music, Lemi instead chooses to draw from his experiences of “long nights in dark clubs, and the science fiction movies” of his youth. This allows the young producer to transition between nearly every genre and progression in bass music. In the past 3 years that Lemi has been DJing publicly, he has performed alongside the likes of Figure, Zebo, Dethface, Flufftronix, Charlie Glitch, Maddjazz, and many others. For bass junkies around the world, Lemi is their new vice.

Knife Fight
Ephraim Cuellar aka Knife Fight has been carving his way through the Chicago night life scene since 2009 with sharp free form sets that include everything from the tropical sounds of Latin house and moombahton to heavy bass and hip-hop. In that sliver of time, Knife Fight has shared bills at Wicker Park Fest 2011, Green Music Fest, Beauty Bar (Chicago), The Mid, Berlin, Congress Theater, Debonair Social Club, Le Pasage, Funk, and Cobra Lounge with the likes of Will Eastman, Huoratron, Willy Joy, Rob Threezy, Charlie Glitch, Jack Beats, and LOL Boys. The young producer/DJ currently holds down a weekly residency at Evil Olive titled Wasted Bass. Knife Fight’s debut release will be a collaboration EP with Lemi Vice that is set to drop via Rad Summer in early March 2012.

Dorsh’s debut album “Neopolitan” is available for FREE download!

Rad Summer is extremely proud to present to you Neopolitan, the debut album from Dorsh, as a free download!

Neopolitan is much like the ice cream it is named after. It’ s a mixture of Reggae, Electro, Disco, Soul, Hip-Hop, Rock, Dubstep, and R&B, flavors all blended into one creamy collection. When Dorsh Deans sat down to conceptualize the Neopolitan album, Dorsh realized with his given “Jaminglican” (Jamaican, English, and American) heritage, that he was in a unique position to represent a significantly large group of people authentically. Having spent his entire life as a soccer player in the U.S. and abroad, he wanted the album to mirror the workings of the World Cup, and its function to bring people together from all parts of the globe. Soccer exposed Dorsh to many cultures and he felt it was only appropriate that he share my experiences through another universal language, music.

Dorsh made Neopolitan to show people that it is ok to be yourself, to celebrate differences, and to embrace more than ONE kind of music! People learn the best through music, and Neopolitan presents a new way to grasp the concept of a “diverse” album and artist.

In the past year, Dorsh has been featured on several top music blogs and radio shows domestically and Internationally. On February 24, 2012 his debut single “Je t’aime”, from the Neopolitan LP, premiered at #10 on Hypem’s popular music charts. Amidst performing with a wide range of artists from LTJ Bukem & MC Conrad to Talib Kweli, Dorsh has done remix work for FADERLABEL in NYC, engineered for Ska Rebirth in Kingston, and mastered for Asahi Brewery in Tokyo.
