Released today, Placebo Palace is the newest EP album from an artist and music producer loved and known by many as Eddie Logix. This EP is perhaps not what you would most likely expect from a quick review of Eddie’s discography- however, his keen ear for music and his technical prowess have allowed him to explore vast expanses of genre and style that provide an exciting experience for both true fans and new listeners alike!
Read more about the EP from Rocksteady Disco below, and don’t miss the official release hosted by Peter Croce and Eddie Logix for Placebo Palace Tuesday January 14th at Paramita Sound. The party starts at 8PM. More info via Facebook.
Rocksteady Disco’s newest recruit is Eddie Logix. He’s been at the heart of the Detroit underground for over 15 years, most recently with his ‘Technically Yeah’ live hardware nights, (a grip of ambient and hip-hop releases) and engineering for Assemble Sound. He’s one half of left-field funk-hop duo Mega Powers with Pig Pen, and of BLKSHRK alongside Blair French, who first appeared on Rocksteady Disco back in 2016 on ‘…For Todd.‘
Placebo Palace is Eddie’s first solo dance EP, combining all of this experience into a diverse offering for discerning dance floors. The EP leads with “Que Locos”, a tropical house banger driven by brass and Latin-Jazz piano. “Baby Girl” rounds out the A side, with a dusty R&B vocal sample coupled with a massive and unexpected bassline.
The B side is darker and deeper, starting with the frantic Afro-Jazz-Deep House “Sunday Palaver”. Closing the EP is “Bottle Rocket”, a psychedelic surf rock-tinged disco-not-disco chugger, with live guitar by Daniel Monk and electric bass by stphn-b. More forward thinking music from Detroit via Rocksteady Disco!
