DJ Sprinkles and Hardrock Striker have announced the release of a new project, teaming up as ‘Skylax House Explosion’ (S.H.E) and have prepared a mammoth mix release drawn from Striker’s record label Skylax.
The two members of S.H.E. have prepared a mix each for the upcoming two disc mix CD, which precedes a three-piece vinyl compilation featuring previously unreleased music curated by the pair. The compilation will reportedly form a template for future projects under S.H.E., which is one in a number of outings partnering Skylax Records and Comatonse Recordings, the label run by Terre Thaemlitz since 1993.
Sprinkle’s contribution is said to channel “an all at once energetic and subdued sonic pallet – much like her work as Kami-Sakunobe House Explosion (K-S. H. E) – presenting a mix that leans heavily on the sound of the straight-up house that the label is known for, but saturated in references to Paradise Garage, The Loft and the ballrooms of Midtown Manhattan.” Hardrock Striker’s side is said to draw from label signees of the more recent past, such as Jason Grove, Octo Octa, Fuckthegovernment.Ltd and Urban Inc.
“SKYLAX HOUSE EXPLOSION” is scheduled for release 28th May 2018 on Skylax. Order a copy here.
