Pubahs launch new label Engineroom with Sandwiches
This time, gone is the masks, multiple personas and gimmicks. The Pubahs return to a more earnest mode as Mack Goudy Jr and Oliver Way step away from their funk caricature’s of Paris the Black Fu and Mr. O and embrace the dark and atmospheric techno that will give Engineroom its unique stamp. Whilst their other label Det.ele.funk will continue to keep the funk, Engineroom will showcase the no frills electronic dance music that has always been prevalent in their DJ sets.
“In my opinion you can only tell a joke for so long,” declares Paris. “Besides that it seems that people in this genre of music don't really have a sense of humour (the producers anyway). They tend to take things way too seriously and then ask ‘does humour belong in music?’ which is laughable in itself. I got into music by chance and that happened because of my humour. People would laugh and tell me how crazy the track was and they'd always smile while doing so. Mad Mike told me ‘we have to laugh sometimes’. I took that to heart and kept trying. Now as of late I feel it's time for us to show our serious side.”
Engineroom launches with three sets of stunning remixes of the classic Detroit Grand Pubahs track ‘Sandwiches’. The first EP in the ‘Club Sandwiches’ series includes a 2011 re-recorded and updated version, a Dave Clarke & Mr Jones aka _Unsubscribe_ remix and a Marc Romboy remix. The vinyl is also a very special collectors edition 10" clear vinyl, individually hand signed and only 40 copies! available worldwide for sale only from Juno.
The second EP will showcase remixes from Ben Sims and the trilogy will be completed by new Detroit Grand Pubahs remixes with the acapella.
