Glass Candy :: Warm In The Winter 12"

Whether it's with the Chromatics, Desire, or Glass Candy, Portland producer Johnny Jewel crafts the most shimmering and effervescent of disco jams. Unlike the majority of contemporary electronic-centered artists, he also does it without the help of a computer: this thoughtful, intricate, and highly danceable funk is played by hand on a range of vintage drum machines and keyboards that date back to the 1970s. Even before Ida No's vocals kick in on these two new Glass Candy tracks, Jewel's cascading synth-dripped melodies and ominous growls of bass have my ears glued to the speakers with a compelling magnetic force. Clearly, Johnny Jewel was put on this planet to do one thing: play music.

Look out for the Warm In The Winter 12" in the Italians Do It Better store. It's also available digitally now on iTunes—just click on the iTunes icon below.
