MONDAY MIXTAPE: LAYNE FOX
This weeks mixtape was delivered by award winning and internationally recognized DJ & Producer Layne Fox alias Musik Nonstop. For those who don't know: Fox's productions routinely receive generous support from DJ's and dance music pioneers including David Mancuso, DJ Harvey, James Murphy, Giles Peterson and Andrew Weatherall. He is also a founding core member of 40 Thieves with Corey Black and Jay Williams.
Over the past decade, this guy had the privilege to remix some of his music idols including Jonny Dynell (Atlantic), Gary Davis (P&P Records) and Kid Creole & The Coconuts (Strut). As Musik Nonstop, he most recently remixed Larry Gus (DFA Records), and Dubmasters for the new Argentinian imprint Cosmica. Over the past decade, Fox and his 40 Thieves have gone on to contribute to the global rise of nu disco culture and become a staple favorite of the San Francisco and West Coast party scenes.
A true-bred Lodown exclusive, this mix is loaded with unreleased gems and includes some new music from Lizards, 40 Thieves, Praus, DJ Rocca, Jamie Paton, Cage & Aviary, Todd Terje, Split Secs and Jon Kusuma as well as Fox’s remix of Dubmaster’s new tune 'Secret Service' for Cosmica. Some additional output by the man himself is coming up in the next few months on Magic Feet, DFA, Machine Limited, Chocolate Star and Permanent Vacation, so keep your ears and eyes open!
