Chuck Love's day starts off with fighting parrots – a brawl the house multi-instrumentalist/producer/DJ would normally avoid if he didn't need their squawk on his record (Yes, he truly goes there). Mr. Love then packs a suit case with his girlfriend, and the two get "Pop Love" to drive them to the airport, where they "fight like Fred and Ethyl over the treat bags Mom Love packed" and board the private jet they share with 130 other people. Touchdown. Sound-check. Hotel registration. And then, the best part: the hotel's fuzzy white robes—which Love says is the benchmark of a "dope" spot. Fittingly, Love and his girl take a "disco nap" before rolling up to the club, where the gratuitous head-bobbing begins and doesn't end until Love's guitars are unplugged, the roof was raised, and subwoofers smoldering. Then, before he knows it, he's back in the studio squabbling with the parrots again.
Love, as we're sure you've gathered by now, is not a typical house music maker – in fact, the dance music veteran didn't start off as most do with the bedroom DJ gear and gig here and there at the local dive bars. As heard on his very new, very first longplayer, "Bring Enough To Spill Some" ("it's a bitch to type," Love says), the man plays all his own instruments (and birds, even). When his contemporaries in his house-lovin' home-base of Minneapolis expressed their love of the beat through DJ sets, Love would happily back them on trumpet, guitar, or really anything else he could find – his shows at legendary night spot First Avenue becoming more packed each month. It's not that Love can't DJ or produce – au contraire. Released by the house of Om Records – a label Love has followed for decades – "Bring Enough To Spill Some" is a 2-disc collection that demonstrates his special, stylistic diversity and ability to both mix a ridiculous set and produce tracks to showcase inside it.
Uriah West started Djing in 2002 at the age of 22 although his love for house music began 2 years earlier. He was schooled about underground house music while going to school in Kansas City after meeting Joey C, David D, and Chris D of Deep Fix Records. After moving to Denver in 2002, Uriah started mixing records in his basement for hours at a time while recording most of his sessions. Within a year Uriah was dragging his turntables to any house party that would have him. In 2003, Uriah began his residency at Denver’s premier after-hours club 2AM, playing several nights a week until late 2006. While holding down his residency, he began playing at Denver’s signature clubs, The Church and Vinyl and also regularly played in Kansas City at one of the biggest underground house nights at the time, Frisky. Uriah has played along-side some of the best DJ’s/Producers in the industry to include Mark Farina, DJ Sneak, Diz, Derrick Carter and Heather to name a few. In 2006, Uriah and production partner Ejay began Bump Shop Music, showcasing top-quality tracks from respected producers like the Sound Diggers, Jonn Hawley, Matthew Brian and Evan Rhodes to name a few. Uriah has since started the 5280 Music label as a solo project. Between the two labels, DJ’s from across the globe including DJ Heather, Scud Bloom, Joey Youngman, and John Larner have been heard playing the Bump Shop Music and 5280 sounds. In late 2007, Uriah and Ejay began collaborating with Jack Roldan to bring house music back to the underground in Denver’s warehouse district, late-night style. With strong local line-ups and the occasional headliner, Uriah West and his posse are quickly become a staple in Denver’s underground house music community.
Detroit's Rescue formed in late 2000 as a side project for Al Scheurman (x-My Complex), Sean Clancy (Wafflehouse*), Mike Majewski (Wafflehouse*), and Brian Southall (Fordirelifesake) but quickly became top priority when they started receiving recognition for their efforts. This double disc contains both their debut EP "Even People and Not the Odds" and their full length "Volume PLus Volume". The records were originally released on Dead Droid Records on 2002. In addition, this double disc collection inclides 2 unreleased songs, with their new drummer, Ryan Clancy (Wafflehouse*, Grayson), as well as their first demo and a techno remix of :Like Spaceships."
