Record Of The Day…James Curd ‘Cause You’re Too Chi Chi’

We sit down with a legend in the game, James Curd, to discuss his latest release on Apollo Music group. With 25 years on the scene, including releases on TRAX, Repopulate Mars and DFA records, the Chicago born tastemaker gives us a little insight into his latest exploit…

Describe the record in five words:

Nostalgic, Playfull, Contemporary, Chicago, Analog

What is it about the record that will appeal to the fans?

Hopefully I captured the feeling I had in the studio making the record and that translates to the dance floor. My fondest memories of being in a club are always in Chicago and it’s usually cold and snowing outside. There is no better feeling then escaping the cold in a hot, dark dance floor with like minded friends. I visit that scene in my mind a lot while making music!

How does it differ from your last release?

My last releases on Exploited and Classic had a touch of disco infused with house and acid. This new one is more true to the original  classic style from the 80’s and 90’s. A bit more rough!

What was the inspiration for this release?

I’ve been working hard at scoring films out in LA and video games. After I made 10 songs for a new Grand Theft Auto 5 online story line I wanted to take a break and change directions. I wanted to go back to my roots and make music the way I started back when I was 18. Focus on the groove and capture a feeling in the studio that would hopefully translate to a dance floor.

If you had the chance to play this in any club, which would it be?

There are some really cool sounding clubs that I have never been to that I would love to play in like Panorama or XOYO!

‘Cause You’re Too Chi Chi’ is out on the 24th March 2017!
