MOTORIST AND LOST SOUL ENTERPRISES BOSS R GAMBLE'S SLUDGY, SYRUPY SONIC CONCOCTION
Kicking things off at a plodding 75BPM, Gamble’s selections wind through blistered beats, doom-laden and lofi synths, EBM flavors, house and techno, and industrial touches for a freaked-out, slow-dance trip.
Gamble hails from Memphis where he grew up making lo-fi rap beats, seeing post-punk electronic bands, synth-laced garage rock and experiencing the wild disco and soul of Hollywood Raiford's Disco. While house & techno parties were limited, there was a small group of DJs who’d been active since the 90s who threw house parties Gamble frequented where they’d mix records all night. Upon landing in NY, he jumped deep into the club culture, eventually establishing a night at the infamous dive bar Wreck Room called Lost Soul which developed into the label and party series he helms today.
Following a 12” on Lost Soul and a cassette for MOTOR, Gamble’s next release, Artifacts, drops this month on Primitive Languages.
