They say the children that spin around and round with outstretched arms til they pass out on the lawn are the ones who end up doing drugs later in life. We say the ones who strap on velcro suits and jump on walls end up in meeting in Hollywood nightclubs and making house music. Kevin Ross and Enrique Martinez prove at least one of those theories true.
After releases on Hot N Heavy and ALiVE Recordings, the duo better known as Velcro have brought their classic house sound to Plant with their “Runaway” EP which is now available exclusively on Beatport (iTunes and elsewhere March 4). We’ve also decided to stream the entire EP for you on our Soundcloud. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL.
Plant is in a really giving mood at the moment. It may be this sudden nice NY weather or the fact that we’ve had such a great Black History Month (a collective Plant best since 2008!), but if you act now, we’re offering a free DL of Velcro’s home city-inspired “City of Angels” AT THIS VERY MOMENT! You may have heard this song if you listened to Todd ‘The God’ Edwards terrific new Dummy mix. And you may have heard of him because he just won a freaking Grammy. You may also have heard title track “Runaway” if you listen to Sinden’s Kiss FM radio show. And you may hear any one of their excellent bootlegs if you go to a discerning nightclub in the immediate future.
You may definitely hear a lot about Velcro in 2014 with tons of releases planned, starting with this one. So go get your druggie kids out of the yard and off the walls and let them check out this EP…it could just save their lives.
Today officially begins BEMF 2013 (or Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival Two Thousand Thirteen if you’re not into the whole brevity thing). A number of Plant artists past, present, and future will be playing, as well as plenty of local pals for what is always an embarrassment of e-riches. Here is the full schedule. Below are our past and present artists with links to individual ticketing. Sorry, but we cannot reveal the future…yet.

Steve Gomez, or “Gomie” to his homies, was a DEA agent of Mexican descent in Albuquerque, NM who was killed in the line of duty in the Mojave Desert. Daniel Gomez (no relation), or “Danny Daze” to his homies, is a producer/DJ of Cuban descent from Miami, FL. Steve and Daniel share not only a last name, but also love of deep, dark, underground techno music, as well as photographing drugs on ceilings.
Daniel Avery is the shit-hot DJ/producer of British descent who just dropped his debut LP Drone Logic and whom Plant’s Chris Tarantino (no relation) recently interviewed for The Village Voice. Avery and Daze not only share a first name, but also a love of the same kind of music as the Gomezes do (although Avery is less interested in the aforementioned ceiling drugs).
Daze recently remixed Avery’s ‘Naive Response’ on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound:
Avery in turn invited Daze to guest on his excellent RinseFM radio show. Daze’s bangin mix begins just before the one hour mark:
Sadly, Gomie has been interviewed nowhere and guested on nothing since his murder in September of this year. Happily, Daze’s ‘Down Her’ EP on Plant is still available at Beatport though. Here is the AA side:
