An underground movement always strives for innovation and lives on pure creativity - Wolf + Lamb is one such movement and now the partnership that created a flourishing series of labels, events and a growing global community, prepare to release their debut artist album, entitled ‘Love Someone’.
Gadi Mizrahi & Zev Einsenberg are both Brooklyn-born musicians who pride themselves on procuring and presenting some of the finest gourmet music from around the world. Coming together over a decade ago, they strived to experience and conquer a new approach to music. And so was born Wolf + Lamb, a project that refuses to conform, yet inspires a legion of followers.
Since then, many have had their own personal experience of Wolf + Lamb; within their Marcy Hotel in New York; as far away as Nevada Desert for Burning Man festival; and more recently across Europe as the duo took to the road. Their debut artist album, ‘Love Someone’, is a product of this touring, created whilst on the road over the last year. A collection of sometimes obscure, but always engaging dance music productions, cultivating the ultimate statement of who they are, and conveying their own unique musical vision.
The album opens with the atmospheric trails of ‘Just For Now’, made at the Wolf + Lamb NYC base - the Marcy - a derelict setting that influenced the gangster feel of this track. Still keeping the tempo slow is their dubbed out rework of ‘Shoeshine Boogie’. Made at Matt Tolfrey's studio in London, the rework oozes with the succinct flavours of instrumental hip-hop and characterizes the W+L signature blend of non-conformist dance music. Title track, ‘Love Someone’ begins to heat things up, combining a nice disco oddity sample, cascading melodies and rhythmic low-end bass, all put together in their Marcy studio, a space that doubles as the dancefloor for their infamous parties.
There is a sole collaboration, courtesy of label mate Smirk, who helped produce the jazz medley, ‘Monster Love’, and Dyed Soundorom makes it onto the package with his ‘Wants Your Love’ remix of ‘Want Your Money’. “We met Dyed at Club Der Viz (as the Americans call it!) this summer, and we instantly fell in love with him,” Gadi explains, “His music is pretty bomb, and I have been promoting him as the most consistent DJ amongst our friends. We're both really happy with his take on the track, he kept it deep!”
The original version of ‘Want Your Money’ was made in the Cityfox Studios in Zurich, flawless closing the project with a sumptuous workout of warbling vocals, shaking snares and contemporary resonance.
Influenced by a solid knowledge of musical history and inspired by an endless enthusiasm, ‘Love Someone’ unites a diverse array of tracks, keeping in mind not only the dancefloor, but the journey to and from it.
WOLF + LAMB LABEL INFO:
2005 saw the opening of Wolf + Lamb Music, the variety label that has become a home for established and rising young talent the likes of Seth Troxler, Shaun Reeves, Deniz Kurtel, Nicolas Jaar, No Regular Play & Soul Clap, publishing original music, edits and everything in between. While leaning towards house, the duo and label’s sound encompass nuevo disco, hipster crossover, sex house and strains of country. Since then, it has grown to include three record labels, well over 100 community dances — and counting, a clothing line, a legendary 6 star hotel and club, and, their new line of organic pet food: Woof & Lamme.
Seth Troxler “"Wolf and Lamb is a family, all who dare to be different not by choice but because life imitates art. Musically and ideologically they are looking to give experiences that are fresh and relevant for today and tomorrow. I’m more than proud to be a part of that family, and blessed to call them some of my best friends. The music they have lined up is really pushing boundaries for the context and idea of what is dance/house music, doing so without pretension but with humility and humor. For me the most interesting thing is if the world will get the joke..."
Lee Curtiss “Wolf and Lamb have been changing the face of dance music and late night parties in New York for nearly a decade now, by bringing back emotion, sex and a care free attitude. They're two of my favorite people in the world, running one of the best labels in the world.”
Nicolas Jaar “Zev and Gadi live in a slow time; breathe low frequencies and exhale warm love.”
