This Friday (7/27) at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn we’re having a release party for our upcoming collaborative cassette release entitled 7 by 7: Astro Nautico x Day Tripper.
An experiment in cultural exchange and sampling, respective music collectives Astro Nautico and INNIT/Day Tripper Records have collaborated on a transpacific project which finds 7 members of Astro Nautico sampling Kurosawa’s “The Seven Samurai” to create a track and conversely, 7 members of Japan-based INNIT flipping sounds found in the westernized version of the same film, “The Magnificent Seven”.
Erik Luebs aka Magical Mistakes (who has previously contributed a track for Atlantics Vol. 2 and remixed Kuhn) will find himself accompanied by up-and-coming Bay Area producer Giraffage, along with three members of Astro Nautico (Obey City, Paul Jones and RAJA) for the release party of this 14-track compilation, which will also be available on cassette this Friday, the 27th.
Cassettes will be available for purchase on Friday via either label’s respective sites.
Preview a track from our side of the project, Kuhn‘s Even Bears.
