dbo & Mannmademusic
Imagine if Indiana Jones had been a bit of a queen, or at least a bit of a diva. Hat made out of broken glitter-balls and instead of a whip he sported a fairy wand like that annoying chick outside Bar 25 in Berlin. Maybe he would be wearing alligator skin chaps? The temple of doom certainly takes on a whole knew meaning.
Well if this spin-off did exist then we at Join The Dots are that man I just described. Searching the world for long lost treasures, hidden gems and future classic pieces. Like our more butch cousin, we are not in this for the cash (please note our releases do cost money), we may not give our findings to a museum, instead we give them exclusively to you.
On the 7th day God made light, or something along those lines (I am not a religious man) then on the 8th day Mannmademusic. Now whilst Mannmademusic's edits I have to be honest are not as good, or as long lasting as God's creation on the 7th day, unless of course you are Stevie Wonder, then who needs light? Light according to Stevie is for pussies.
Without trying to to take away from the mystique here, Mannmademusic is known to his mum and his community support officer as Iain and he is from Sunderland, his music is inspired by slo-mo house along the lines of The Revenge and Craig Smith, Mark E and Eddie C (good Join the Dots influence there) and he has a couple of releases out on Audio Parallax Records soon. You can also download a mix of his from Slo-Mo Radio.
I guess after such a long winded description it is going to look quite sad if I only write a tiny bit about our other musical Arc of the Covenant. But dbo comes from the same school as Mannmademusic, slow burning, deep bass-ing and eyes-down housing. All splashed with a bit of disco to keep your hips wiggling. He sent us M.U.S.I.C. a lovely musical composition and we loved it. Download and share the love.
These edits are exclusives, meaning you can't download em anywhere else, but here. Now that is a special bit of treasure.
