Putting the Sylvester in David Sylvester Music

Written by Nark

David Sylvester, who is one part beard and one part Two Dudes in Love is a busy gal these days turning out what really can mostly be described as queer-fantasy-techno. Recently, he put out this deep gritty cut, sampled off a record I picked up at Gramaphone in Chicago, and mashed with a diva "house full of MENNNNNN" sample ripped from a vinyl thrift find, but that's not why we brought you here today.

A couple weeks ago when opening for Felix Da Housecat I got to drop an early version of this new track/remix/tribute David put together of Sylvester himself. It's now released officially through Bottom Forty's support and free to download for all to enjoy, and I highly recommend slipping it into your DJ bag, because when disco and dance heads hear Sylvester creeped out (but certainly not cheesed up) with a spacey techno vibe, the resulting emotion is confusion and happiness and a solid twirl or two, enjoy! 

 

 

Below is a statement from David Sylvester about this release...

"I’m obsessed with educating myself about the origins of dance music. I'm not the first to say this, but it’s so important to remember that all of house and techno is derived from disco, which evolved out of soul and RnB. All of these genres were pioneered by people who dared to express themselves in defiance of the immense oppression and persecution they faced in their daily lives.

And who dared express himself more flamboyantly than Sylvester? A soul singer at heart, he and Patrick Cowley revolutionized the sound of disco in San Francisco. Sylvester is inspirational to me because in art and in life, he fearlessly embraced his authentic self: black, effeminate, and extremely homosexual!

When I found the acapella for “Mighty Real” at Streetlight Records in the Castro, I knew I wanted to do something special with it. By setting Sylvester’s timeless vocal to searing, full-throttle techno, I aspire to honor his legacy and also look to the future of dance music.

I chose the surname Sylvester in tribute to the Queen of Disco (and, by extension, to all the originators of dance music). The name reminds me that all dance music is disco. It reminds me of the past and present pioneers of civil rights. It reminds me to check my privileges—to examine myself in relation to the people who lived and created (dance music’s) history. Most importantly, it reminds me that all art must help make the world a better place: by spreading joy, by undermining hate, and by challenging expectations.

I hope this song helps to make the world a better place.

-David Sylvester, April 7, 2015, San Francisco, CA."

Mugshots: Andy Butler at The Big Building 3.21.15 Nightlife

Written by Nark

 What a fucking fantastic all night dance party we had at The Big Building with Andy Butler, Futurewife, Recess, Eddie Sumlin and our ourselves turning out the tunes, Nick's projections made the space surreal and the energy and vibe in there was to die for. We got to introduce a lot of you to the SoDo rave as well and we hope you are hungry for more, because it's coming for you, and hard.

On Saturday June 27th, we take over the space again, but this time both rooms, with two stages, a bevy of Seattle's finest players and headliner Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space, NYC), this is a Pride Party for EVERYONE, Everybody and Every Body. You can pick up tickets at Jens Atomic Cosmetics on Capitol Hill or at the door, but either way, save that date, because this is going to be our biggest pride party EVER.

 

 

Until then, join us next Saturday at Kremwerk for a super Aries birthday installment of Bottom Forty!
