A few months ago I posted a HUGE MEGAPOST about a Belgian dude named François who does all these different projects including Ssaliva, Kingfisherg, Cupp Cave and, from what I can tell, Munch Room. Guy's got a new 10" out June 13 on Vlek Records as Cupp Cave called the Dice Pool EP, a rad four-track excursion into thrown back house and flamboyant dance grooves.
After listening to the streams for a week, it's become apparent that this is by far the best stuff I've heard from Cupp Cave. My favorite tracks are "Thoughtograph" and "Hypersport," two of his more club-ready jams, seriously waiting for some mighty-lunged diva vocals to burst through all powerful and sassy. Can I get a Funchess remix over here? Anyway, all I'm saying is slug down enough coffee with this in your headphones and you'll be getting wild in no time.
What's better is Vlek is giving us a 10" to give away to one lucky reader. Just leave your email or Twitter handle in the comments and we will pick one from random on June 13 when the record is released and contact you regarding where to ship it. Also of note, the record's sleeve was inspired by Stukenborg and was printed with a Vandercook SP20 letterpress using hundreds and hundreds of dice. Check photos of that process HERE. For now you can stream the whole thing on Soundcloud and/or buy the MP3s on bandcamp and/or pre-order the record.
