Spectre Vintage is, according to its Facebook page, "A chic, unique furniture boutique specializing in MCM, vintage mod and other timeless classics."
Milwaukee's Codebreaker and its label, Disco Demolition Records, have sent word of "N.A.S.A.," a collaboration between the Milwaukee duo and Britain's Futurecop!
Kid Millions really IS a victim to the beat and he is back with a new infectious Sage Schwarm-produced track called "Higher Ground." The new song gives you exactly the same vibe as his lovable track "Victim To The Beat" did, though it's not as robust. Millions and Schwarm, who is part of Codebreaker, certainly sound like they are made for each musically.
Connections are key for bands and no one knows that better than Milwaukee's own Codebreaker, which has a number of great collaborations to its credit. The latest, a remix of "Troubled Water" by legendary deep soul diva Sybil -- her self-titled 1989 disc with covers of "Walk On By" and "Don't Make Me Over" was one of my favorites that year -- is the result of happenstance.
Milwaukee's electro-pop megamen Codebreaker have a new record coming out soon. A taster of it arrived a couple weeks ago.
Milwaukee electronic disco dance brigade Codebreaker has a new single out. "Silver Lining" is a taste of the upcoming full-length CD, "The Space Chase," due out early next year. "Silver Lining" is issues with remixes by no less than Chicago house pioneer Joe Smooth and France's The Outrunners.
Last Saturday, while wallowing in one of these down-on-Brew City moods, Milwaukee and its brilliance slapped me upside the head once again during the Made in Milwaukee Special Edition event held at Turner Hall, 1032 N. 4th St.
Local rapper Kid Millions -- better known to some as John Kuester, co-owner of Lotus Land Records in Riverwest -- has just unleashed the record of the Milwaukee summer. "Victim to the Beat," co-written with Codebreaker's Sage Schwarm, is a fun and breezy retro hip-hop dancefest with a sound that will send you running for your old Sugar Hill Records 12"s -- or at least the first Tom Tom Club CD.
Codebreaker celebrates the arrival of summer with a new 12" called "Follow Me," on its own Disco Demolition Records. The disc is the first in what front man Steven Hawley promises will be a "whole host of collaborations, remixes from and for some of dance music's most exciting, tasteful artists."
Kings Go Forth is a band that seems to have come out of nowhere, getting noticed before even playing its first gig in Milwaukee and nabbing a pile of 88Nine Milwaukee music awards. But don't be fooled, most of these guys have been involved in the Milwaukee music scene for years.
Laying out tracks like Jimmy Ross's "First True Love Affair" and Komiko's "Feel Alright," Steven Hawley and his guest DJs -- the likes of Straka Khan from Love Sounds and BT Magnum of the San Francisco-based blog "Beat Electric" -- spin a full night of rare (and not so rare) disco, boogie and "cosmic funk" sounds that give you more than enough reason to skip the gym.
Milwaukee's electro-funk duo Codebreaker teams with London dance diva Kathy Diamond for "Fire," a new 12" single on Disco Demolition Records. The record is the label's first release and is available from Oct. 7. But you can hear it now online.
Milwaukee's own electro-disco outfit Codebreaker hits the road at the start of December for a handful of gigs on the West Coast.
If Codebreaker has spent the last year searching the deep chasms of outer space for sonic inspiration, the band has finally extracted its landing gear. The cosmic-funk pop duo has recently resurfaced here on Earth and is ready to share the results of its findings: second full-length album, "Exiled!"
