As far as we can tell, the newly launched 100 Years Of Solid Dudes is a project from Jameszilla (of the Broadzilla DJ’s and Phillytronic dance floor wrecking crew Making Time). Head over here to download a 44 minute “car-crash sample symphony” mix that he made that contextualizes Aretha Franklin, the Ides of March, Elvis Costello, Bowie and dozens of more samples into one long funky massive mix, as well as releases from Wooden Email, Universo Paralelo, and Potent Mutant. Dig deeper into 100 Years of Solid Dudes here. Admittedly, we think there’s a little brand confusion going on here, but we like it.
Adam Sparkles is a member of Pink Skull, a resident DJ with the Making Time and Snacks parties and all around music making trouble maker. Sparkles recently released a three-song EP, which you can listen to and download for free below. Get ready to hit the dance floor with this fine collection of housed out electro jams.
