Wolf + Lamb's Five Essential Crew Love Jams
When Brooklyn DJ-production duo Wolf + Lamb launched their eponymous label in the late noughties, bringing like-minded artists such as Soul Clap, No Regular Play and Nicolas Jaar into the fold, they planted the seed of what would eventually blossom into the Crew Love collective.
The Crew now includes up-and-coming new artists like Navid Izadi and Nick Monaco, recruited via Soul Clap's own recently-launched imprint. But the glue that binds them all together is still the same: an irreverent but soulful approach to electronic dance music that denies itself no guilty pleasures, sampling everything from '80s pop to yacht rock and Minneapolis funk.
And what it invariably translates to is a damn good time on the dancefloor. Find out when the Crew, held down by Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap, Izadi and Monaco, throw down poolside at the Delano Beach Club on Sunday. But first, get a taste of what to expect with these five Crew Love teasers.
