Carnivalism Podcast No.24 – National Record Store Day Special

There’s scratches and pops but that’s why we like it! Digging through our record archives for national record store day, Dom and Matt play a back to back special.

So glad we finally managed to get Hold On onto an episode. It’s such a strong tune and was easily in our songs of 2011 (not that we make lists or anything).

The emotionally charged I Remember The Future is another beauty out of Ben Watt’s Buzin’ Fly label. Here’s what they have to say about Alain Ho.

“Anyone with a memory for the heyday of French house in the mid-nineties cannot fail to recognise the name of Alain Ho aka DJ Yellow. Together with Bob Sinclar, they created an explosive mixture of deep Afro-influenced club music that took the underground scene by storm on their co-owned Yellow Productions label. It helped launch the careers of Dimitri From Paris, Salome de Bahia, Africanism (Martin Solveig) and of course Sinclar himself.  It was a founding stone of the French house sound.

Since going their separate ways, Alain Ho has moved seamlessly through the underground setting up his own Poussez label that forged a new path through bristling deep techno – an approach that foreshadowed the successes in the genre in subsequent years for artists such as Ame. Lately his new vehicle, Composite Records, has provided a platform for his own Mindz Kontrol project and artists such as King Britt, Varoslav and Daniel Kyo. He has also recorded recently for Ovum and Freerange.”
