Dan Le Sac’s solo debut CD “Space Between The Words” now available!

An SFRstore US Exclusive, only available here!

SFR vet dan le sac (one half of the DLS Vs Scroobius Pip superduo) has dropped his debut solo album!

Written, produced and with vocals from dan himself, the album features collaborations with Emmy The Great, Merz, Sarah Williams White, B Dolan, Joshua Idehen and Pete Hefferan.

CDs will come SIGNED by dan le sac! Click here to order yours.

“With this album,” dan ventures, “working with so many different people, writing songs, it brought the producer in me back to the fore, in fact, it made me imagine never doing a gig again.” Fans of his long-standing partnership with Scroobius Pip needn’t worry, he doesn’t mean the last part – in fact they have gigs forthcoming – he’s just reveling in his creative reinvigoration.

Taking a step sideways from the percussive atmospherics that were the backdrop to Pip’s words on Top 40 albums “Angles” (2008) and “The Logic of Chance” (2010), dan embraces everything from electro-pop to psychedelia, all accompanied by an impressive array of vocal talent.

Dan le Sac’s reputation for vibrant good times at festivals and club nights is unarguable, but he’s also proved with “Space Between The Words” that he’s a lot more than simply the bloke behind the bloke with the big beard. He’s a musical force to be reckoned with and in “Space Between The Words”, an album dan le Sac has created a smart, zingy debut shot that will appeal to fans of indie, dance, hip hop, electronica and much else besides. It’s one to file alongside Metronomy, Hot Chip and Field Music as a sharply individual snapshot of modern pop’s endless possibilities.

Tracklistings & album information:

Juan Deuce – “No Sweat”
The “No Sweat” mixtape is the fresh, dry-as-a-cool-breeze sound of Juan Deuce working out a severe case of Senioritis: one last blast of wild madness before graduating to his first official full-length LP collaboration with fellow Providence-based whiz kid, Falside. But before he gets down to business on the work of crafting his rap masterpiece, he’s throwing one hell of a party, and has invited a few talented friends along. “No Sweat” features production from (among others) Falside, FaktsOne, J57, and Fonzi Wells, with appearances from fellow RI stalwarts Romen Rok, Jon Hope, and Jaysonic of Time Machine and front-to-back cuts by DJ Emoh Betta.

01 The Draft (produced by Falside)
02 Right On Red (produced by J57)
03 People feat. Romen Rok (produced by Falside)
04 Falling Down (produced by Fonzi Wells)
05 .38 Special (produced by Fonzi Wells)
06 Larry Sellers (produced by Fonzi Wells)
07 Left You (produced by The Audible Doctor)
08 Shred (produced by Fonzi Wells)
09 Freeze (produced by Fonzi Wells)
10 Menahan feat. Jaysonic (produced by Falside)
11 Yuro (produced by The Dopplegangaz)
12 Show Me Love feat. Jon Hope (produced by ACB)
13 Back Stroke (produced by Fakts One)
14 Cutlass (produced by J57)
15 Jimmy Buffet (produced by ACB)
16 Reverie (produced by pJAYd)
17 Valet (produced by Falside + pJAYd)
18 Clay On Words (produced by Falside)
19 Freeze (Remix) (produced by Falside) (CD EXCLUSIVE BONUS TRACK)

Falside – “East Toast”
Last summer, Providence, RI-based beatsmith Falside blessed us with “Snare Conditioning”, a beat tape so full of good vibes it had people young and old running barefoot through the streets, cracking fire hydrants and shedding clothes. A year later, with several other acclaimed projects securely under his belt, Falside marks his return with “East Toast”, an instrumental album that serves as another high-definition display of the young producer’s ever-growing versatility.

On “East Toast”, Falside’s production runs the spectrum: he shows off how purposefully he can handle samples, how intricately he develops original compositions, and how nimbly he can change gears from some complex, deep shit to the feel-good shit he does so well. Falside also brought the two very talented, luminary emcees Has-Lo and Ceschi along for the ride.

01 Home Bass
02 White Noise
03 Considerable Influence feat. Has-Lo
04 Boogers
05 Billy Idol
06 No Shit
07 Windows
08 Cubanimal
09 Last Chance feat. Ceschi
10 Fin
11 Nicotine Caffeine (CD EXCLUSIVE BONUS TRACK)
