New York Endless is the first appearance on vinyl of New Jersey born New Yorker Dan Selzer.
You may not have heard of him, but many of your favourite producers, bands and DJs massively respect his record collection and ear. Dan has been involved in music in one way or another for 20 years. A DJ career that has ranged from playing disco at legendary Brooklyn loft parties at the turn of the century and throwing a seminal post-punk disco/new wave house weekly at Plant Bar with the Rapture, his prior Crazy Rhythms collaboration with Mike Simonetti of Italians Do It Better (which resulted in an early mix CD on RVNG) and throwing the Alldisco and Dazzle Ships parties with the guys from Lectric Sands.
Heâ€™s perhaps best known for running the post-punk reissue label Acute Records. All this plus multiple appearances on Beats in Space and WFMU but until now, nobody's heard his own music.
Many of the sounds he's spent years exploring and DJing can be heard via the three tracks that make up the Strategies EP.
Elements of Techno and House, IDM, Italo-disco and New Wave, Cosmic and Kosmiche, Krautrock and a certain debt to the New York school of minimalist composers all appear.
The music is pure and (mostly) analog while still centred around accessible melodies and clean synthesized tones.
