Reporter 'Time Incredible'
Reporter 'Lab Test (Miracles Club Remix)' (Direct Link)
Reporter 'Click Shaw' (Direct Link)
Portland-based trio Reporter released their debut full length 'Time Incredible' yesterday on Holocene Music.
The two track available above run the post-Italo, New Wave aesthetic that has taken the general masses to catch up with over the last 10 years. Labels like Italians Do It Better, Ghostly, Plant Music and even our friends over at DFA have been keen to these sounds for years. Reporter is being heralded as the next wave of Portland musicians, a scene where both Indie Pop and dark sultry disco can coexist in the same club.
Miracles give 'Lab Test' the warehouse treatment Chi-town style. The track would fit just as easily into one of Frankie Knuckles sets circa 1986 as it would at any underground dance party today.
'Click Shaw,' in its original mix would sit nicely between a Hercules & Love Affair remix and a Nite Jewel track.
