Re:Body feat Linkwood, Friday July 23rd
The first time I heard Linkwood, aka Nick Moore, aka Prime Numbers I was blown away by the groove. The Linkwood and House of Traps RA podcast still persists on my frequent listening lists, its an instant classic. As a lover of all dance music, it is impossible not to love the essentials of disco which is the basis of Nick Moore’s sound often referred to as Nu Disco. I’ve started to hate that term but it is what it is.
Linkwood roots go back to early 2000’s in Edinburgh UK when the underground dance music scene there was popping off. Eventually Nick Moore and his partner Lindsey Todd (House of Traps) put out the first Firecracker EP on their Firecracker label in 2004 featuring their now sought out masterpiece “Miles Away.”
Since then Moore and Todd have collaborated on four more praised Firecracker releases as well as many more individual projects. Moore had a breakthrough year in 2009 after releasing System on the soulful Prime Numbers label. This is the release that has taken his sound on tour around the world. I describe the Linkwood sound as weathered acid washed beaten down house spaceship disco reprise. Does that do it justice? Have a listen:
If that is not enough, then bug out to one of his latest mixes:
So, Linkwood will be performing this Friday 23rd at one of the world’s most unique and intimate party spots located around the outskirts of San Francisco, very limited capacity and by the way, it probably has the best custom sound available in the Western Hemisphere…. Not kidding. The very secret and special locale will be disclosed the day of the event. Seeing that this is Linkwood’s only West Coast appearance I would not miss this if I were you. Alongside this house-disco phenomenon and appearing for the first time in the secret locale will be Jeno, one of the pioneers of the West Coast’s party scene, a living legend; also Sammy D of Kontrol who killed at his closeout set for the Sunset Campout, Conor SF, a local rising disco star and the man behind No Way Back, and Briski, my good friend who I love and respect, plus he dons a record bag full of slick cuts and knows how to mix them.
Don’t miss this one kids.
