Boomkat Product Review:
Golf Channel commemorate legendary - but now defunct - NYC haunt, La Mangiami with a broad-minded set of cuts from their former patrons and pals.
The Italian restaurant-cum-club's unofficial "mayor" Jason Kincade paints the picture:
“From 2006 until its lamented closing in 2012 Mangiami was the downtown clubhouse for a very New York cross-section of DJs, artists, musicians, fashion people, music obsessives and assorted layabouts. On any given night of the week you knew that within an hour of sitting down at the bar any number of your friends would soon appear, and be entertained by the massively charming owner, Gianfranco. Then there were the DJ nights. Every Monday (and later Wednesday) from after work until far too late on a weeknight pretty much a who’s who of local heroes and international superstars would play on the rickety old Technics sat on the bar, with mayhem and general debauchery to follow.”
There's eight tracks on show, ranging from the warm disco embrace of Grackle's Jungle ireworked by Capablanca and T. Keeler, thru to the deep red keys of Let me Rock You by Dedication, the killer cosmic squash of Don't Move by Alex From Tokyo and Bing Ji Ling, and throbbing Italo synth thrust from Totes Preesh.
