:: About goodie ::

For the last seven years (and even longer for its founders) the name 'goodie' has been at the base of Philadelphia's house & techno foundation. The brand's core tenants have always remained simple and to the point: "... music, atmosphere, talent and proper sound." Founders and mainstay selectors Rob Paine & Francisco Collazo's focus on building the perfect atmosphere has always been reflected through their attention to detail from track selection to artist bookings, venue location to production value and all of it, for the right reasons.

From the German Keinemusik collective to Philadelphia's freshest on-the-rise talent, John Digweed, The Martinez Brothers and Philly hero Josh Wink's beloved 'Hallowink' events (past guests incl. Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler and more), goodie has done as much as anyone (if not more) to bring house & techno where it needs to be in the City of Brotherly Love.

:: About Ryan Crosson ::

A Motor City, Berlin, London hybrid, Ryan Crosson is a complex artistic creature. Born and raised on a steady diet of post-apocalyptic landscapes, dark warehouses, and the sounds of Plastikman, Matthew Dear, Magda, and Villalobos, Ryan۪s DJ sets expand the horizon of possibility without sacrificing dance music۪s core element of sweaty, hedonistic fun. His unique musical vocabulary and tireless dedication ensure him a place in the dynasty of forward-thinking techno transplants.

Alongside Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves, Ryan is responsible for running Visionquest Records, one of dance music۪s most cherished and eclectic imprints. Ryan and his partners in Visionquest have honed a whole new landscape of lush, organic techno and esoteric left-field electronica.

Wor.50 is celebrated with remixes of 'Children Of Israel' !!!
The story for Worship started 20 years ago in 1998. It just so happens that this, our 50th release on the label, coincides with this noteworthy moment in time. To celebrate our earth strong beginnings, we received the royal treatment from an artist who notes Worship as an influential label early on in his musical career. It went down something like this... Yotam Yo homie Rob, you۪re the guy from Worship Recordings right?۝ Rob "Hey Yotam! It۪s true. Love your work man. Big fan. Fellow ganjaman.۝ Yotam Children Of Israel by Solomonic Sound was my first vinyl. I was like 13 or 14۝ Rob Wow! That۪s awesome man! I want to get some remixes of it. Give me a shout if you are interested. Josh & Matt from Ovum turned me onto your works. I then went a little crazy and bought half your catalog.۝ Yotam Man I would be so honored to remix it. I۪ll do a pack of a few versions.۝ We in return are very honored to have Yotam Avni & Laroz breathe some new life to Worship۪s all-time highest selling release.... Children Of Israel۪

Wor.49 Now available in all stores!

By Worship Recordings

Wor.49 Now available in all stores!
This might be the most leftfield release Worship has put out since those early yearsof releases. Who would have thought that these two unruly producers would havelinked up for a collaboration like this? We did, and we present the musical evidence to prove itright here with their debut release entitled Number One۪. Tanner Ross (Dirtybird,Freerange, !k7, Soul Clap Recordings) and Rob Paine(Worship,Leftroom,Shaboom, Large Recordings)met upstairs from the WorshipRecordings home base at a goodie warehouse event they both performed at.Burning the midnight oil into the breakfast hours together they created a foundationfor a friendship that is still going strong 3 years later. The original mix ofʉNumber One۪was created only a few months after Tanner &Rob۪s first encounter. Both in foreign territory never working together in the studio,they didn۪t know where this was going to go at first. But they both left their egos atthe door and learned to trust each other as the ideas and techniques soondeveloped. Knowing the styleseach other has from their previous releases, you caneasily hear the influential tones of both of these artists on this track. Big ups to theDon Gorgon DJNinjamanfor his contribution. Number One (Dub)۪keeps that same dub driven bass line and tightpunaanydrumsthe original possess but givesNinjamana break on the vocals and dubs out thedrums andhits weaving in and out of thetrack. This rendition still gives you thatsame crazy fucking horn lick (no other way to describe it) and glorious tech stabs at the half way point. Intended for the heads who aren۪t so much into reggae vocals but love the feel of dub. For thepurist,we had to include theNumber One (Version)۪track to seal up thetrinity. If you know reggae music then there is no need to read any further. If nothere is the Urban Dictionary definition of version۪:ʉAn instrumental version of a reggae song often dubbed onto the B-side of asingle. Sometimes DJs wouldrapor toast۪ over top of these versions. Throughthe studio manipulation and experimentation of such figures as King Tubby,Augustus Pablo and Lee Scratch۪ Perry this practice grew into the reggaesubgenre known as dub.۝
