1. AUDIO: The Makers – “Don’t Challenge Me.”

    The folks at Chocolate Industries in Chicago are releasing a forthcoming compilation entitled Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984 . We’ll certainly be checking for it simply by virtue of the fact that it includes the newly leaked The Makers “Don’t Challenge Me” – a track some of us vividly recall as being a fixture in sets by the Chi’s Mr. Dante Carfagna on his frequent DJ visits to the Big Apple in the early and mid- aughts. Fraught with haunting vocals and a tricky percolating synth line that’s seemingly rhythmically allergic to the “1,” it manages somehow to be evoke being both entirely laid back and unbalanced at once. Listen below. Personal Space drops in April.
