Good news is when I get an email from Computer Jay. Great news is when he's got some news about music. And great news it was...
What I know I have been patiently waiting for, is finally coming to fruition. Computer Jay, back from a trip to Latin America is back in LA, ready to release new material.
Having chosen to do for self, not only will he be releasing the Savage Planet Discotheque v1 EP, he'll do so on his own label Weird Science. Very fitting for the man who had long ago assembled his own synth and in fact traveled to shows all over the world with it.
Either way, Savage Planet Discotheque v1 EP will be the 1st of 4 volumes to be released in 3 month intervals. July 31st will be the date for the 1st one, and he's leaked the title track as 1st single which features Shafiq Husayn of Sa-Ra fame, and Jimetta Rose. If you know Computer Jay, this single is in full character: a futuristic banger full of interstellar swing, funky nostalgia with a tight drum rack for the fellas and a cordial chorus for the ladies to sing to.
Enjoy the download and stay tuned!
