For the past couple of months, I have been hanging out and spinnin venues with Ben & Zach from the Ridgewood Social Club. Today, I am proud to bring to your their newest album, RSC. For more about the album, here’s what they had to say.
“We’re really excited to release “RSC”, our second full-length mashup album. “RSC” consists of 10 tracks and features 48 different samples, and in many ways it reflects our growth as a mashup duo. Given the state of mashups these days when everyone and their mom can throw a pop acapella over a house track at 128 bpm, we thought long and hard about how to approach our sophomore album.
Using a handful of DC venues as our test lab, we worked tirelessly over the last two months to develop a sound that provides listeners with a unique mashup experience. We were overwhelmed by the positive responses to our first album release, so as we aspire to play bigger venues, we’ve incorporated much bigger sounds into our tracks.
To celebrate the album’s release, we’ll be participating in a turntable.fm party on Monday, February 13 at 8:30 PM EST, and we hope you can join us on Friday February 24th at Liv in Washington DC, where we’ll be hosting a mashup party with some friends that include Bruneaux, DJ Strongarm, DJ Burnout, ten.sense, SEA apparel, and C4 Belts. Details here.
We also want to send out a huge thanks to Ben’s little brother Zeke for the cover art, you can see more of his artwork here: http://www.zekebeginsnow.net/
