An email with Mr. Lazarus

Our new Crosstown Rebels collaboration T-shirt is to celebrate their new offshoot label, Rebellion. Here, Damian Lazarus explains what it’s about.

What’s the story behind Rebellion? This is a new label with an even more rebellious angle; deep club hits that hint at music you know, delivered with a unique twist. What releases are forthcoming? So far we have released tracks from Sis and Solomun; the next releases comes from Russ Yallop and Jimmy Maheras with remixes from Fur Coat and Matt Tolfrey. What other music are you excited about currently? Pretty much everything coming from the Rebels / Hot Natured / Visionquest / No. 19 camps. How fun was Miami this year? The Get Lost party was seriously one of the best parties in our scene of all time, keep your eyes peeled for Rebel Rave 10 for a look at what went on. Tell us about Red Dot Relief: This is a campaign that we launched alongside SethTroxler and Jay Haze to help rebuild Japan following the disaster there. We are all so connected to the country that we felt we had to do something to raise awareness and money. Please check the website. What’s on your latest LazPod? So much great music from Fourtet, Lia Ices, Roska, Mother of Seven and much much more.
