Slacker 85 is the new label from the mind of one of the world’s biggest DJs & most recognised personalities, Seth Troxler. The first release, SLACKER001, brings together Seth and four more artists with their own takes on modern electronic music, to introduce fans to Slacker 85’s remit for the oddball, esoteric & diverse sounds that are forthcoming from a wide range of artists and genres.
The label launches with the long awaited release of ‘Pills’, a low slung acid groove that has been an in-demand staple of Seth’s DJ sets around the world over the past year. Also on the A side is the effervescent jacking house of ‘Let’s Go’ by Jackmaster – destined to be a mainstay of global dancefloors.
On the flipside we get the fast-rising UK talent Ghoulish dropping ‘Forever Ugly’, a romantic filter house earworm that harks back to the halcyon era of Fred Falke and Alan Braxe.
Rounding out the first batch is Cesar Merveille’s collaboration with André Baum (People People / Beyondré). ‘The Finish Line’ sees the Cadenza-affiliated Parisian’s building a melodic analog groove while NYC’s Baum invokes classic 80s electropop with his understated vocal.
