Welcome one and all to a fresh new show, mixed and produced by me Wanghart, for my online music website liaoliao.tw, hosted by Boxfrequency.FM. Each month I’m going to be featuring a pick of the promos i receive at the liaoliao.tw headquarters in Kaohsiung City, here in Taiwan. New music released by some of the worlds top independent artists and labels. Music you wouldn’t normally get to hear out here in the far east.
In the second hour of this months show im excited to say we have one of the first official airings of the new Dirty Sole LP thats about to drop on December 9th!
Dirty Sole is the dynamic indie electronic group formed in 2001, rooted from the storied & significant musical history of their hometown, Chicago. It didn’t take long to get noticed, as their first release was signed by dance music pioneers Derrick Carter & Luke Solomon for their Classic Music (UK) label. The record went on with multiple chart placements, alongside the icons of the era, Basement Jazz & Roni Size.
The duo followed with a string of releases and global hits that saw their unique blend of house, funk and techno appear on labels such as Yousef’s Carioca imprint (UK) and Phil Week’s Robsoul Recordings (FR), and leveraged their forward-thinking sound with major brands like Nike & Toyota.
The pair has since been head down in the studio with a recent single featuring a remix from DFA’s The Juan MacLean, and their sophomore album, ‘FWD Motion’. Still keeping their eyes and ears looking towards the sounds of the future, the new LP marks a crisp beginning, blending elements of electronic, synth pop, dance, and hip-hop with featured artists Lyrics Born, Foremost Poets, Jon Von Letscher and James Curd.
