Over the past year, SinLabel has been a company worth keeping an eye on. This summer, SinLabel and their often collaborator Primary Presents, quickly became the talk of Chicago through their yacht party entitled Shipwrecked Series on Navy Pier, which brought DJs such as Perseus and Super Flu to the high seas. Their method of booking artists simply because they love them has brought them continued success, including hosting the Ed Banger 10th Anniversary tour with FEADZ, as well as upcoming shows such as their Black & White Gala featuring Autograf in which we are co-presenting and their Oliver $ New Year’s party. A group once shrouded in mystery, the company recently celebrated the launch of their website, which looks to serve as a haven for the music world that “rewards fans along the way just for being a fan.”
SinLabel’s other most recent launch has been their mixtape series – The SinLabel Sessions. Now entering its thirteenth installment, the curators of The SinLabel Sessions have featured a local Chicago favorite – David Arredondo, otherwise known as My Boy Elroy. Elroy is a man of many talents and trades, first gaining notoriety as the beat-boxer and DJ for the Grammy nominated acid jazz act Liquid Soul. He also lends his production skills to his band Digital Tape Machine, who have performed at festivals such as Camp Bisco, Summer Camp and Electric Forest. His countless years of talent and passion have allowed him to share the stage with all star talents such as Massive Attack and Mark Farina. My Boy Elroy stands as a heavily present member of electronic music culture by being the only Midwest member of the artist collective Every Starving Artists Productions and serves as both Music Director and Creative Director for Chicago’s Midnight Circus.
My Boy Elroy’s contribution to The SinLabel Sessions is intellectual and highly skilled, allowing him to be a standout amongst the already impressive lineup the SinLabel Sessions has offered. It’s a tranquilly soulful deep house mix that starts off smooth and slowly builds throughout the hour. My Boy Elroy features several of his own original tracks such as “Easy” and “Gigantic Dance Party,” as well as some of our own personal highlights such as Cosmic Cowboys’ remix of “Shot Out” by DJ Le Roi. My Boy Elroy and SinLabel have released the mix for free, so be sure to check it out in its entirety below, and follow the rest of the SinLabel Sessions here.
