:::: WOLF + LAMB BIO ::::
For nearly a decade, Wolf + Lamb has prided itself on procuring and presenting some of the finest gourmet music from around the world. Using nothing but two turntables and a steadfast determination to make people move, the duo have been lighting up dance-floors in New York and around the globe.
The partnership was struck when Zev "Wolf" Eisenberg and Gadi "Lamb" Mizrahi discovered a similar penchant for new and exotic dance styles from abroad and an innate ability to tolerate each other for long periods of time. The two immediately set out to spread their vision of community, music and the celebration that ties it all together.
In 2005, with opening of Wolf + Lamb Music, their variety label has become a home for established and rising young talent the likes of Seth Troxler, Shaun Reeves, Deniz Kurtel, Nicolas Jaar, No Regular Play & Soul Clap, publishing original music, edits and everything in between. While leaning towards house, the duo and label’s sound encompass nuevo disco, hipster crossover, sex house and strains country.
Since then, it has grown to include three record labels, well over 100 community dances — and counting, a clothing line, a legendary 6 star hotel and club, and, their new line of organic pet food: Woof & Lamme.
Whilst nobody can tell for certain what the future holds, we’d wager them celebrating life, liberty and the pursuit of a satisfying melody well into the future.
:::: SOUL CLAP BIO ::::
Elyte and Cnyce's paths were crossed for all time when a Sun Ra light beam sent from Saturn collided with the P-Funk Mothership and sent them tumbling to earth. Now, Soul Clap time travels on a musical spaceship of dopeness...
The early years.
As children on earth, they were driven to understand the history of dance music and found their teacher in original boston disco DJ Caril Mitro who admitted them into the temple of Vinyl Connection (whose members included Dimitri From Paris and Frankie Knuckles plus many more). Caril taught Soul Clap that "house wears many hats" and instilled the sounds of New York, Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia while fostering an addiction to digging that has become a worldwide quest to acquire the best vinyl and download every good song on the planetary-interweb.
Soul Clap's training goes beyond history lessons to mastering all the elements of the DJ: knowledge, mixing, programming, performance and experience. They honed their knowledge, Elyte taught a college course about dance music and Cnyce worked for UK booking agency MN2S.
They locked themselves in a basement until their mixing was flawless and traveled the universe observing the most advanced programmers (Josh Wink, Carl Craig, Francois K). Then they went out into the world to perform at places like The Marcy Hotel in New York, Fabric in London and Watergate in Berlin and in smaller places in America, Europe, Japan, Mars and Jupiter plus dancefloors in other galaxies that you haven't heard. Now, 13 years of experience has prepared Soul Clap to free your mind, and your ass will follow.
By harnessing the past Soul Clap looks to the future, with forward thinking productions and remixes, creative DJ sets and some of Boston's best dance music events. Soul Clap released their first 12" records on Airdrop Records, "The Giraffe", "die Ente" and "Puppy Crack". In Boston, each summer they organize Dancing On The Charles (one of Urb Magazine's six best outdoor parties in the US) and every Wednesday they host Midweek Techno (Boston's longest running techno night), while continuing to broadcast live to planet earth on The Adventures of Soul Clap Podcast. With a recent bomb on Crosstown Rebels, a 2010 summer Extravaganza and slew of remixes coming soon, you better make sure to catch the clap in a city near you while you can.
Always pushing new boundaries, always traveling time and space, Soul Clap truly is the Great White Hope.
