The Cushion – My Heroes

The Cushion - My Heroes

The new EP by Scott Brandon

Available now on Beatport.

My Heroes Are Your Heroes’ Heroes
Artist: The Cushion

Audio MP3

The Cushion (Scott Brandon) is a dance music artist who works from Chicago. We know him from parties and mutual friends, but did not know his music until recently. Scott’s music reflects his roots. He grew up near Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan and moved to Chicago several years ago. Scott is one of those musician/DJ introverts who creates cerebral house that really works on the dance floor. Both tracks featured here are musical and have moving rhythm sections. Scott’s relatively quiet years spent in the studio (he has a release on Spectral) and time spent DJing around the midwest have helped him develop a focused sound, reflected in the songs on this release. In an unfortunate turn of events, the unmixed audio for both tracks were lost.  As a result, Mazi’s (Audio Soul Project) snappy edit uses whole sections from the original song. Continue reading…

Audio Soul Project – Have It All Remixes

Audio Soul Project - Have It All Remixes

The new EP by Audio Soul Project

Available digitally on Beatport.

Have It All Bootleg Version
Artist: Audio Soul Project

Audio MP3

Have It All Dub proved to be the most popular track on Audio Soul Project’s LP “Hip Shake Heartache” from earlier this year. The idea for the track originally came from an R&B acapella. For the album “dub” mix the vocals were stripped down. Here, for the first time, we’re making the full vocal ‘Bootleg Version’ available. The music on this rendition is an expanded take on the one from the album, making room for the emotional vocals. This song is made for those deep house DJs who still covet the human voice in their sets. Continue reading…

Mazi’s original production is part Salsoul-style disco, part 90s deep house. For this mighty remix package we’ve enlisted talents from Germany and our beloved home town Chicago. Continue reading…

Giovanni Damico – When It Was Fresh

Giovanni Damico - When It Was Fresh

The new EP by Giovanni Damico

Available now on Beatport.

Way Out
Artist: Giovanni Damico

Audio MP3

This is House with a capital H.

Fresh Meat’s latest, “When It Was Fresh,” is by Italian producer Giovanni D’Amico. Gio’s music resonated strongly with us when we received his demo less than a month ago, so we excitedly prepared it for immediate release. All three tracks are unrefined, melodic and funky. This is real house music direct from an inspired artist working without pretense. Giovanni’s playful use of samples, synths and swingy drum programming all evoke the golden age of house, but the slower tempos and use of space make the grooves modern and relevant.

“If I don’t get it, it’s because I don’t want it…”

Fresh Meat Records is proud to announce the release of the second Audio Soul Project album, “Hip Shake Heartache.” With global attention quickly returning to U.S. House music, the time is perfect for one of Chicago’s important working producers, Mazi Namvar, to bring his considerable talents to bear on this sophisticated album of beautiful and original music. Following-up on the acclaimed 2001 album “Community” (NRK), Mazi wrote, recorded and produced “Hip Shake Heartache” over the course of a year, working with a cadre of vocalists including Ron Carroll, Alexander East and Nathan Drew Larsen along with seasoned musicians Jimmy Tripp and Richard Gow. This emotional and often bittersweet album is a personal story of old friends, music, treason, relationships, endings and new beginnings — recounted and fictionalized in the graphic novelette issued contemporaneously herewith. The short story, written by Mazi, was illustrated by local artist Ernesto Perez. Continue reading…

The new EP by Nick Harris

Available at Beatport, and soon at all better music shops.

Elementary
(Audio Soul Project Remix)

Artist: Nick Harris

Audio MP3

NRK front man Nick Harris rounds out 2010 for Fresh Meat with two tracky deep house cuts. In addition to his accomplishments with NRK, Nick has been busy releasing music on labels such as Mood Music and Night Grooves, including production and remix work for artists like Kris Wadsworth, Scope and David Durango. “Elementary” and “BizzaRIO” are restrained groovers with subtle builds and organic progressions working the dance floor and coming alive in the mix. Both tracks have moody vibes; “Elementary” with a DBX style lead and rolling percussion and “BizzaRIO” with haunting keys and a punchy insistent bass line. Continue reading…
