Hello fellow music travelers.
Chris Lum from Moulton here. I’d like to ask for a few minutes of your time to let you know about an exciting new music venture called Moulton Music. This new label is a collaboration between Harlum Muziq (David Harness & myself) and Yerba Buena Discos (Homero Espinosa & Allen Craig).
These two groups have come together to create, remix and release music from our studios, musicfrom our friends in the business and fresh new artists we encounter. It is a venture that is 12 years in the making.
It seems like just yesterday that I was building the studio complex in San Francisco. It has been a true labor of love, guided by music and fueled by the great artists, past and present, that have had their studios here. They have helped Moulton have a global reach and some of them have influenced a new generation of music makers.
After all these years, I am pleased to finally put a face to the place. That face is Moulton Music.Moulton is deeply rooted in the culture and sounds of the past, while still being passionate about what’s new and relevant today. This label is an attempt to put that vision into musical form and release it to public.
So it’s only fitting that our 1st release is the underground classic I wrote in 2001 called Big Tool. Built around some vocals from the Jungle Brothers “Ill House You”, the original was my version of what was then called “The West Coast Sound”. Music that was written to be layered and mix for long rides. Minimal but banging, dark and dubbed out. A DJ’s record. It was originally out on the seminal Bay Area label Tango and was generously supported by a wide range of DJ’s. To this day this has been my best selling and most supported tracks. We are honored to have the amazing talents of DJ Spen give a totally unique take on this. Other remixes on this package include our label manager Allen Craig and a new talent in the studio, Ovidio. Finishing it off are two new mixes from little old me.
