RS008: Lemi Vice’s and Knife Fight’s new The Knife Vice Moombahton EP is out now!
Lemi Vice and Knife Fight join forces for the Knife Vice Moombahton EP, out now on Rad Summer!:
Despite being cultured during a cool Midwest winter, the new release from Lemi Vice and Knife Fight features 4 tropical moombahton bangers. The Knife Vice Moombahton EP, the 8th release for label Rad Summer, finds the two producers jumping headlong into the genre that is synonymous with dancing girls while still keeping their never-too-serious, tongue-in-cheek style of production. This sense of humor is keenly displayed by obvious influences from Tarzan and Star Wars. Funky and fun from beginning to end, RS008 is must-have for anyone that enjoys the burgeoning genre of dance music.
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.
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.
