https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtQTo-AiMpQ This Worship Wednesday we revisit CIRCLE and their track Music and Emotion (Emotionally Gated Dub) off of WOR. 39, Music and Emotion EP. The track is centered around a thumping rhythm accompanied by perfectly programmed techy-ness with hints of classic house sounds. CIRCLE is the combination of two long time friends and DJ partners, Rob Paine and Keith Landis aka O۪Keef. The duo۪s early days saw them producing some of the most historical parties (with partners Kevin Gimble & Sean Thomas) hosting pretty much every major electronic artist at the time. Their parties would ignite a fire under Philadelphia and make it a destination for high quality electronic music. CIRCLE has seen many different chapters, but more recently Rob are Keith have been holding it down on the production under the Circle name. From time to time if the masses are lucky enough long time brother Sean Thomas will join the boys for a special production or event. Most recently Thomas had joined Paine and Landis for a legendary CIRCLE party at the Dolphin Tavern last spring for goodie no.23. This was without a doubt a rare and legendary performance that still echoes through the Philadelphia underground community. Stay tuned for another reunion in May. CIRCLE is not stopping any time soon. Paine and Landis have a new release on Worship coming out in late spring that features Gerhardt Koerner on vocals. On a side note, Paine & Koerner are putting the final touches on their full length under the name Rise 8. The collaborative production team's original track Gone To Deep is being packaged with one wicked remix lineup. The release will see a rare Scuba remix from Philly legend King Britt, along with Sean Thomas and David Marston from Soul Clap and Wolf & Lamb Records. Gone To Deep will see a Vinyl release on May 4th and be hitting digital outlets on June 1st.
