Today we’re proud to announce the second record on our little musical imprint, Jenkem Recordings, The AceMoMa EP by AceMoMa.
As you know, we started doing more music related stuff two years ago with Beginnings, a compilation record made up of songs by Jenkem readers and friends who have ties to skateboarding. More recently, we also teamed up with NTS Radio to start a show.
AceMo and MoMa Ready are two skateboarders you may have seen skating LES skatepark, who make electronic music out of our neighborhood in Bushwick, Brooklyn. They are staples in the DJ scene here and already have successful solo careers, but now they’ve come together musically as AceMoMa for the first time on this special four-track EP of House / Techno and Drum & Bass.
Together they’ve crafted a sound that captures the contrasting grit and shimmering new energy found in New York City’s electronic music scene. Without throwing a lot of music jargon at you, their record sounds like what a long night out in NYC feels like in 2019 (minus the coke headache the next day). Or if that’s not helpful, we premiered one track early on Mixmag.
For those of you who still like the feeling of having physical records in your hands, we pressed 300 vinyl copies which you can buy here and at select stores via Rubadub Distribution. As always, we’ll be hand-packing every order and throwing in a few goodies as well.
And if you’re strictly digital, you can officially download / stream the full EP on Wednesday, July 10th on iTunes, Spotify and anywhere else where digital music is available. But keep in mind that these records will not be re-pressed, so grab one now or forever hold your peace.
Thanks (as always) for all the kind words, hellos, submissions, complaints, and being down to explore more shit than just skating with us.
