WNCL 007 / Balboa EP
L.A.’s DON FROTH has recently been busy remixing Catelepsia, engineering for DJ Harvey and releasing on his own Froth’N imprint, not to mention his larger-than-life, limited release "10,000cc" for Phonica Records (ed: not our words!). Here he reminds us all that 138bpm is not yet a spent force. WNCL Recordings is proud to present "Balboa" and "Von" – two trax offering super-fresh beats with exhaustingly endless twists and turns. Strictly for dancers.

Wild 004 (Days of Being Wild)
This is a special release to us at Days Of Being Wild, firstly because it's the return of Catalepsia and he's in a mighty form, secondly because we felt very privileged to have artists of the calibre of Sean and Don getting involved and lastly the quality of the remixes they delivered left us speechless!

Second remix comes from San Francisco best known undercover bedroom producer Don Froth. The last 12 months have been pretty exciting for Don. After the success of his incredible Foam EP, 2010 saw him releasing 10,000CC on the demanding Phonica white label. Since then he's been gaining support from numerous heavy weight DJ’s, including Giles Peterson, Richard Senn, Mr.C or Tim Sweeney. Being the Californian surfer that he is, Don manages to keep his cool with the darkness of Dope Menace and delivers an incredible mix, in which he injects minimal hooks, funk breaks and 80's synths chords.

Don Froth / 10,000cc / Phonica White 002
(July 2010) Vinyl

Side A : 10,000cc's
Side B: Holiday (Dubbed out)
-------------------------
Running Time 15 Minutes.
-------------------------
All songs written, produced and mixed by Don Froth / Hoolz/ D.Julian Smith. Recorded at Chet's Bungalow in Venice Beach, CA.

Phonica White 002
Don Froth’s “10,000cc / Holiday (Dubbed Out)” is Phonica White’s sophomore release and it couldn’t be any more different to Iori’s stripped down dub techno.Don Froth initially appeared on our radar with “Foam” – a laidback, dubby disco number that effortlessly got us all in summer mood, practically teleporting us to his native Venice CA. Forget about such niceties… “10,000cc” is “Foam’s” rowdy sibling. A twisted, bass-heavy stomper of a track, that takes disco, dub-step and punk-funk, spins them in blender and spits out one of the rudest basslines we’ve heard in a while. We’re talking big here – even Giles Peterson is a fan.On the flip “Holiday (Dubbed Out)” returns to more familiar territory… Laidback, dubby disco that instantly brings to mind “Foam” without being a carbon copy. It’s breezy, summery and very organic in an analog sort of way. Limited vinyl pressing of 444 copies – hand stamped and numbered. Special artwork by Pedro Carvalho de Almeida.
