The death of disco is on the horizon, and 2013 may just hustle stab it into bleed-out submission. Consider DJ/PURPLE/IMAGE (Alex “Muh-Fuckin” Gray) as one of these beat horsemen, layering concrete samples and swelling you can only hear via VIA and VIA. Not to call out the demise of beloved 1-2-3-step-point-1-2——, but “IT KNOWS IT’S GONNA DIE” is just the beginning. Prepare for the vinyl reissue of HEAD TEAR OF THE DRUNKEN SUN on Healing Power Records sometime soon. Also, I heard he’s coming into the NYC area soon. Maybe he’ll be lending his musical fingers in something special. Again and again, in the mean time, pop your ears with “IT KNOWS IT’S GONNA DIE” until your head can’t nod no more!
