皆 (mina) / 12"

Honey Soundsystem is proud to present on their revitalized music label a new 12" from their resident Dj, Robert Yang, who also produces under the name Bézier. Over the past years Robert has seen releases under the Dark Entries Records imprint with the most recent 'Telomeres' ep. The title track 皆 or pronounced "Mina" (translates from Japanese to "Everyone"). "Mina" is a journey through space with the initial ascent marked by a moody window of time in which uncertainty dominates the mindset of the passengers. Once they break through the atmosphere and are proceeding as planned they land on the final destination, an interplanetary discoteque. "Mina" was recorded this year with Mark Pistel on the helms for mixing and features SF drummer Kevin Woodruff of Tussle fame providing live drumming for the last portion of the track. Along with the title track the B-side includes tracks previously released on compilations but appear here for maximum record playing enjoyment. "Serengeti Drive" which appeared on Honey Soundsystem's earlier HNYTRX compilation of queer dancefloor artists is the slow burner of the group. "Mysteries Of The Deep" which appeared in the Jacktone cassette compilation of Bay Area electronic stars is the soundtrack to an underwater expedition. Both tracks were recorded, produced and mixed by Robert in his home SF studio in 2009.

kickin' in / 12"

Unreleased disco 12" by San Francisco-based musician and producer, Patrick Cowley. Perhaps one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the canon of disco music, Cowley created his own brand of hi-nrg dance music, 'The San Francisco Sound'. During the 70's, Patrick was the lighting technician at The City disco in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. This was SF's largest Gay entertainment complex, where everyone from Grace Jones to Sylvester would perform. Frank Loverde was performing there with his band Loverde when Patrick asked if the band would like to do backups on some songs he'd been working on. Frank, Linda Imperial and Timmy went to Patrick's studio and laid down vocals for songs, most of which were never released and remained buried in the Megatone vaults. In 2007 Honey Soundsystem was contacted by the former owner of Megatone Records John Hedges. Hedges' was moving to Palm Springs and invited us over to his basement to collect over 2,000 records from his collection. Among the archives we noticed 3 moldy boxes of quarter inch reel to reel tapes. Included was the final mixed down reel for "Kickin' In", an epic 12-minute journey through disco, that Patrick recorded with Loverde in 1978. From the 2 minute plus drum solo that builds up to the introduction of a bouncing arpeggiated Prophet IV and the harmonized vocals, all transport the listener to another realm. The song encapsulates the hi-nrg dance music that Patrick became known for. It was an 'up' sound for the gay disco scene, music that would compliment and sometimes enhance all night dancing. On the flip are 2 earlier songs produced between 1975-77 featuring basslines by college classmate and studio mate Maurice Tani. Both songs feature Patrick narrating erotic gay sex fantasies inspired by San Francisco's leather bars, back rooms and bathhouses. These songs show the sleazy side of Cowley's slow burning, oozing electronic creations with layers and layers of synthesizer, guitar, drum machine and vocoder. Each 12" comes housed in our custom Honey Soundsystem die-cut jacket featuring an illustration of the San Francisco skyline. Also included is a 8" square postcard of the original "Kickin' In" reel to reel box with Patrick's handwriting on the front and lyrics on the back.

cosmologist ep / 12"

'Cosmologist', the latest offering from our resident Dj: Robert Yang aka Bézier. A multi-instrumentalist, Robert was trained in saxophone starting at age 10, before moving onto a Fender Telecaster after high school. After being exposed to Southern California rave culture in the late 90's, he moved onto Djing and collecting records. By the time he planted his roots in San Francisco in 2005, Robert had built an impressive analog synth-based studio, which also serves as the creative hub for his riveting live performances. 'Cosmologist' explores Robert's personal universe with 3 tracks that connect his varied musical lineages. "Cosmos", a celebration of the late 80's/early 90's KIIS FM universe, is built around an infectious freestyle hook that morphs into a 7 minute tour of intersecting styles. "Ether" begins as gothic night-driving electro, but breaks into fantasy-scapes inspired by italo and 80's Japanese anime theme songs. The final track, "d. Quelle", clocks in at over 11 minutes, incorporating bebop jazz solos drawn from his early exposure to improvisation techniques by Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, and Stan Getz.
