Guest Cablebeats Posted September 4 Report Share Posted September 4 In 2001, Justin Johnson & Chris O'Connor (3PO) launched a brand new label from the depths of the lower east side in New York City called Cable Recordings. At the time, Chris and Justin were managers at Satellite Records and were roommates in a Brooklyn loft near Bushwick. Their mission was to connect all the sounds that they loved into their own sound. Their first offering â€œStolenâ€ was influenced by their surroundings, their peers, their DJ gigs, and their love for bangin' house music. They took the dirtiness of the subways, the grime of the sidewalks, and the magnificence of the skyscrapers and turned them into a stompin' Tribal House stormer, which embodied the sound of the dance floors of New York City at that time. The B-Side featured an amazing remix from long time friend and collaborator John Selway whose progressive Tribal Techno sound had already taken the world by storm. Indeed, it was Selway's remix that helped bring the spotlight to Cable by being licensed to mix compilations on Fabric (Slam), Ultra (Taylor), and Moonshine (Dave Aude), as well as being featured in an episode of Showtime's 'Queer As Folk'. Shortly after its release, DJ-Sets.com grabbed it and brokered remixes from Angel Alanis and Len Faki, and gave the tracks even more exposure. Eight years later, the remixes are FINALLY available digitally.Available at these fine retailers:Track it DowniTunesJoin us on FacebookJoin us on Sound CloudJoin us on TwitterComing soon: Justin Johnson "Sustainability"3PO "I Like It - EP"DJ Nomad NYC & Quentin Harris "Lights Out - Remixes Part Two"Justin Johnson & 3PO "New York Stories - The Remixes" feat. remixes by Lee Coombs and more.
