In this week's Village Voice I profile Vinyl Life, a trio that uses all old-school hardware (drum machines, synths, samplers) to make it's throwback electro. The group has a self-titled debut out this month. I write:
"Vinyl Life's self-titled debut reflects New York City's heyday of breakdancing music, Latin freestyle, and up-tempo breakbeats, celebrating a time when rappers danced and electro was something you heard emanating from boom boxes and public transit, not from public radio. Out this week on the group's own Tape Theory label, it's an outward attempt to satirize the push-button ease of contemporary music. The threesome's studio is practically a museum."
