Longstocking is next up on Plump Records
Longstocking is next up on the young but well-formed Plump Records with two tracks that come with a remix from label boss Kevin Knapp. Denni Kindred, aka. Longstocking is part of growing WestCoast current back to the BIPOC/Queer/Gender Queer roots of House Music.
Unhappy with seeing how far House Music veered from its roots, Longstocking decided to be part of the effort to change that. While it’s been a challenge rising as a transfemme/Non-binary artist, her releases speak for themselves and she is consistent in only signing with allied labels. So far Longstocking has delivered Late Night Munchies, out of Seattle, their first Beatport #1 and did the same for He.She.They. Records (Warner Music sublabel) out of London. In fact, all four of their self-releases have garnered podium finishes at the very least.
‘Delete Messages’ is first and is a slick tune with a nice rubbery bassline and sweet hits. There are gorgeous melodies over the top and spoken word phone messaging bringing a different vibe to the melancholic bass. ‘Chirp, Chirp, Bitch’ then picks up the pace with busy, live-sounding drum breaks and plenty of sci-fi keys and synths. It’s an energetic tune that never stops moving and brings something totally different. ‘Chirp, Chirp, Bitch’ (Kevin Knapp Remix) then closes out with hi-tech techno drums and sliding hi-hats, cosmic synths and plenty of energy to get a crowd pumped.
This is another fine statement of dance effort intent and originality from Plump. We premiere Kevin Knapp’s remix of ‘Chirp, Chirp, Bitch’ today on Data Transmission check it out here and grab it here.
