Ben Cook (Triangle Orchestra / Rong Music)
Ben Cook (Deep Fuzz, Thick As Thieves, Triangle Orchestra), along with DJ Spun, recently formed the New York based Rong label. Rong's recent releases display accelerated boogiefied rhythms with postmodern disco aesthetics - a mixture of psychedelic keyboards, dub vocal drops, funk, and a thick layer of heavy bass. Recorded live at P.S.1 on August 20, 2005.
A wonderland of DJ sets collected, contributed, and recorded for us since 2004 featuring hundreds of hours of uninterrupted dance music by innovative souls that has become all too rare to find in the clubs. Assembled under the curatorial direction of Clocktower Radio Station Manager Jeannie Hopper (and host, Liquid Sound Lounge on WBAI-FM, the Pacifica station in New York), this treasure trove is a listener's paradise.more
