Friends of SBR
The lovely Alona has collaborated with White Girl Lust on many random tracks including “Oui” from Pleasure & Pressure Vol.2. Lately she is a member of the yet to be launched Say Again project we have been prepping to launch this summer.
Split Secs is a group consisting of our homie TK Disko and Alexandre (of LA’s Making Shapes parties). Well, they have beat Say Again on getting Alona on vinyl first. Above is the first release from their new Machine imprint.
This choon is a cover of a nearly forgotten house gem on the legendary 90’s house label, Nu-Groove.
This record is appropriate for all events including dance floor gang bangs, Bar Mitzvahs, and yacht parties.
Here is the OG for your review. “I am the master of the groove and you are my slaaaaaaavvvvvveeeeee”.

It’s been a little quiet around these parts the last few months. As you may know from other post, Clayton and I have put Solid Bump and White Girl Lust on a short hiatus to start a new project entitled Say Again with our longtime collaborator Alona. You can check out some of the early Say Again results here.
Behind the scene, we have built up a new studio and been churning on a slew of jams that will be released this summer officially re-launching Solid Bump (including vinyl finally!!!).
Leading up to this, I hope to post up some video scenes from the new studio with little tastes of the new material as we do the final recordings.
For now, check out these couple tips and tricks I found on Synthmania. The gear and techniques used is semi-similar to parts of our revamped studio. Our Nerd Alert columns were some of our most popular – so maybe some of you will be into these.

As stated in the last post from a few months ago, it is seemingly quiet on the home front of SBR. And in some regards that is correct. In the last few months Clay and Eric of White Girl Lust have shifted their attention temporarily off of Solid Bump to really invest in their own music again. Running even the smallest label in a total DIY fashion is a time consuming endeavor.
Last summer we found ourselves more inspired to work on music than we had been in a long time. We had reinvested in some of our favorite classic synths and drum machines, rebuilt a new studio space, and found ourselves really inspired by the dance music scene as a whole in 2011.
Now six months later this inspiration is finally culminating as Say Again with long time collaborator Alona Esposito. We have our first EP of demos wrapping up which will lead into an official launch of Say Again in late winter 2012.
However, the first fruits of our labor are actually being released in only a few weeks on the notorious Gomma Records. The remix package is of Moullinex’s Modular Jam and features some great works from the likes of Justin Faust, Earl Grey (an alias of Danny from the C-90s), Worship, and ourselves as Say Again.
Our mix digs it’s heel in a tad deeper into the house and exposes our penchant for 80’s Roland gear and 12 bit drum samplers. We are pretty excited about this one!
More info on Say Again coming soon!

Where have White Girl Lust and Solid Bump Records been the last few months? Well, it’s been a hectic whirlwind of a good time, settling into a new studio space, rebuilding our collection of vintage studio toys, and mostly writing a slew of demos for a new project that will be unveiled this fall under the moniker Say Again.
Who or what is Say Again? Eric and Clayton of WGL have officially joined up with long-time collaborator Alona to focus on rolling out a shared vision of lush analog driven dance music.
As a warm up exercise the trio has cooked up a moody interpretation of Tensnake’s recent anthem “Something About You”.The remix plays up the rich orchestration of the original’s classic house vibes and settles with a distinctly modern house groove.
More to follow in the coming months – but for now – enjoy a small tease of Say Again.
It’s here at last – the third edition of our super funkin’ Pleasure & Pressure series. This one is always one of the most popular releases in our catalog.

Heavy production from all at solid bump in the month of March. Here is the proof! Check out the recent post at Lazy Day Lounge featuring Chicago’s Gary Shruggs aka “Adulture” as he gives a peak into his personal production methods. It’s a world of cats, cigarettes, and rotosound flat wound bass strings all contributing to the sultry disco funk that Adulture is known for producing.
