Being prolific does not always translate into delivering top quality work. Such is not the case with Chris Malinchak. So many words can be used when describing the Chris Malinchak experience. Underground. Hypnotic. Haunting. Deep. Diverse. Driven. Prolific. But one word truly encapsulates what is currently happening with this FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS house music legend in the making: UNSTOPPABLE. So far in 2012, Mr. Malinchak has delivered two EPs + five singles. All different from one another. All brilliant. I could go on and on but I’ll leave my Malinchak Appreciation Post with this: Chris Malinchak – 2012 House Music MVP.
Labor Day is finally here, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a beautiful weekend by the beach for this year’s Pacific Festival in Newport Beach. A “new musical experience at a seaside venue,” Pacific Festival aims to offer a festival experience unlike any other that you’ll find this holiday weekend, as the location is absolutely unique and the producers have curated talent this year to specifically cater to a beachside vibe. As you might have noticed, we’ve changed up the event flyer to highlight our favorite dance acts that will be performing this Sunday, so to see the full lineup as well as information on the PRE and AFTER PARTIES happening Saturday and Sunday nights at Detroit bar, read on…

Earlier today, the label that is doing massive things in the deep disco realm, French Express, gave us a treat with previews of upcoming releases from Jonas Rathsman and Chris Malinchak. It seems that Jonas created his track with a sort of peak-time consciousness, while Chris took on a mellower mood with a UK garage type sound. July is definitely going to be heating up with the release of these awesome tracks, but until then, make use of the streams after the jump.
The crusader of cool, Mr. Chris Malinchak just polished off the finishing touches on his 3rd studio EP from the awesome French label, French Express. The label happens to be home to feel-good kings and GDD™ favorites: Jonas Rathsman, Perseus, & Moonboots to name a few. Chris’ new album features 5 tracks bringing back the funk while offering just the right amount of diversity. The title track “There I Was (Again)” is absolutely amazing, but I have to say my loyalty lies with “Fuego”, the track that was featured on The Magician‘s previous Magic Tape. Check out streaming of the entire EP after the jump!
French Express has come out with yet another great tropical disco release from the rising star that is Perseus. With consistent support from The Magician, it’s hard not to take notice of the deep grooves and vocals that lead to a musical addiction. Listen, download, and enjoy in the artwork above.
The mystery track on this month’s Magic Tape 21 was unveiled today. It was “Got Somebody” by Moon Boots. However, no SoundCloud listener gets to claim the “I’M-SO-COOL-FOR-DISCOVERING-THE-ENTIRE-ACCURATE-TRACKLIST-FIRST” prize because Moon Boots himself was the one to properly identify the song. Nice try SoundCloudNancy Drews…you’ll get’em next time.
“Call us foolish, call us brazen…these are just tell-tale attributes of an impassioned lover. Out of pure impulse, French Express and Chris Malinchak give you an advance copy of ‘There I Was’ in full-length and quality.
If we’re not speaking the language of love, who is…just one last question (in the words of LL Cool J), who do you love? Champagne for everybody!”
