DITHER DOWN PRESENTS
A NEW SINGLE & VIDEO BY
GAZELLE (FEATURING JOGYO & DEVI MAMBOUKA)
OUT ON APRIL 22, 2013
“Run, but don’t run away” opens the chorus of this new single, a unique collaboration between South African musician Gazelle, Dither Down mainstay Jogyo and vocalist Devi Mambouka. 3 NYC-based transplants of African descent who have come together to create an invocation to “Change your perspective” and “Face your fears.” The result is “R.U.N”, an acronym of sorts that Jogyo says means “Remember Union Now.”
Also included on the single is a spaced out vocal remix from Sao Paulo via NYC dub legend Strikkly Vikkly aka Victor Rice. The single concludes with the Strikkly Vikkly Dub version that strips the track back down to its African core.

The Magician put Eli Escobar’s Remix of Walker & Royce’s “Little Things” on his latest Magic Tape — out now on Dither Down
Already in high demand due to his immensely popular NYC parties, including Brooklyn’s Tiki Disco and the weekly Night People at Le Bain at the Standard, Lloydski is now applying that earned NYC style and swagger to his own original productions..
Lloydski’s debut single on Dither Down Records, “Go To Sleep,” is a late night plea for sanity. Produced by Lloyd along with help from Dither Don Tim Wagner (33Hz), “Go To Sleep” is a playful, downtempo, electro disco track that recalls early 80s italo and new wave while being a thoroughly modern affair.
Remixes on the single are courtesy of Mexico City wunderkind and Electrique Records label manager, La Royale. Born in 1990, La Royale loves cats, drum machines and his SH101.
NYC RELEASE PARTIES:
Sat. 9/1 Night People @ Le Bain at the Standard
w/ La Royale, Lloydski, Blu Jemz and Eli Escobar
Sunday 9/2 @ Tiki Disco at Roberta’s (Bushwick)
w/ La Royale, Lloydski, Andy Pry and Eli Escobar

As part of the Nervous/Nurvous Records NY crew, Walker & Royce (aka Sam Walker and Gavin Royce) have been making waves with a diverse array of scorching remixes for artists such as SAARID, Kolombo and Ante Perry, 33Hz, Publicist and SPF 5000, along with a string of club-ready originals.
Coming off a very deep and well received 12” on Crosstown Rebels, Walker & Royce’s new record on Dither Down is a funky slice of electro boogie called Little Things. Already being played out and supported by Jacques Renault, Volta Bureau, Cassian and Infinity Ink, LITTLE THINGS is poised to be their breakout record and the anthem of late summer.
Also included on the 12” are two remixes, one from Eli Escobar (Plant/Tiki Disco) who released the highly successful “Work It” earlier this year on Dither Down, as well as an awesome cut from Italo Disco meets Acid House funkers, Trap.Avoid.
