RotPG – Downtown Party Network (07/08/2011)
Downtown Party Network might once have been a magical period of New York City nightlife, but today it represents a duo from another side of the world. Meet two fellow Lithuanians, a long-term DJ Saulty and music producer Bradka.
After playing all around Lithuania for a decade, in 2008 Saulty decided he wants to say everything he had experienced in music. He visited Bradka in his studio and, to cut a long story short, a track called “Days Like These” was born. Eskimo recordings signed the duo right after hearing it and testing it in a Belgian discotheque, where not a single soul could resist to the beachy disco feeling. Soon after that the first vinyl of Downtown Party Network with “Days Like These” on the A side and “Into Your Face” on the B side smashed the record stores all around the world. “Days Like These” continued to spread the summer love even further and showed up in two Ibiza mix CDs as well.
The mission had to be continued, so summer of 2009 was greeted with a second record on Eskimo. “Heart Break Dancing” and “Walk On Ice” soon became favorites of many respected DJs in the scene and around it – Tiga, Aeroplane, DJ Harvey and the likes. “Heart Break Dancing” was included into the the Global Underground compilation “GU 2010”.
The deep and soulful disco sound producers from Lithuania since the beginning have been kindly welcomed to the wordwide remixer circuit. The most recent on the already remarkable list of those remixed is the Dutch superstar DJ Sander Kleinenberg. “Downtown Party Network” also have dropped remixes on the legendary Compost label and Australian Future Classic to name a few.
While travelling around clubs in Lithuania and Europe Saulty and Bradka also have plenty of ideas to be expressed in the studio, so new singles and remixes are already on the way. In the beginning of 2012 the fans of Downtown Party Network will be greeted with a full artist album that should break a lot of hearts.
