Pender Street Steppers Ready New 12″, Share Previews
The Vancouver duo returns to Mood Hut later this month with two new house cuts.
It’s no secret that Vancouver collective-turned-imprint Mood Hut is an XLR8R favorite (it topped our list of 2014’s best labels), and today, previews for a new release from founding members Pender Street Steppers cropped up on the label’s SoundCloud. Jack J and Liam Butler debuted in 2013 with the sought-after Life in the Zone cassette, followed by a couple of 12″s on PPU and Mood Hut. The a-side to their forthcoming single, “The Glass City,” first showed up on the pair’s Resident Advisor podcast back in January, and, like “Golden Garden” on the flip, features the MPC-drum grooves and lush synths of the Steppers’ lo-fi, mellow house.
While an exact release date has yet to be announced, the arrival of “The Glass City” b/w “Golden Garden” is forecast for April, and clips for both tracks can be streamed below.
