One Eye Open 06:44


Coming just after their mix album "Live at Smart Bar" Mazi and Justin Long return as Wasted Chicago Youth to Fresh Meat Records with three tracks of modern American house music. "Dustbin Boogie Woogie" follows-up on the jackin’ sound these turntable extremists set forth on labels like Tuning Spork, Cynosure, and .Dotbleep, but this time the duo push the Chicago edge even further. You don’t hear much talk of chemistry between producers, but there is that indefinable quality between Mazi and Justin, animated by alchemical tensions and dialogs between the raw and refined, produced and free-form, modern and classic, and melody and atonality. Put simply, Wasted Chicago Youth is something special that Mazi and Justin only create together.

Words do no justice to the effect of “Dustbin Boogie Woogie” on a dance floor. The title track is beautifully produced and full of hooks, whoops, hollers and horns, yet it maintains a perfect tracky epistemology throughout. This is the (unfortunately) rare track that is for both mixer and dancer. “Van Gogh’s Ear” is similarly hook laden and dancey, yet this time the vibe is more hypnotic. For Van Gogh’s Ear, the Jazz of Dustbin is traded for pad keys and Blues laden vocal stabs, masking another characteristically delicate and complex WCY production. The third tune, "One Eye Open" is a heady psychedelic track that winds and grooves with synthesized live modulated horns. Mazi's voice is stacked over Justin's bass line in unison to create a husky primitive vibe for the club. Check out what everyone's dancing to in Chicago.
