Icy Lake Night Slugs Fade To Mind

Last week, THUMP unveiled the release of London-based Night Slugs and their Los Angeles affiliates Fade To Mind‘s new short docu film Icy Lake, directed by Wills Glasspiegel with Night Slugs co-founder L-Vis 1990.

Icy Lake accompanies the labels’ joint re-release of the obscure house track “Icy Lake” by Dat Oven – a universal call for vogue dancers to make their way to the center of the room.  The track was unearthed when Total Freedom was YouTube surfin’ and stumbled upon this video of the last night of Junior Vasquez‘s Arena party at former NYC superclub, The Palladium (now, a gym and dorm).

The collaborative film and 12″ release is just the start of ongoing explorations into the connections between 90’s tribal house, vogue culture, and the NYC underground – past and present.  The filmmakers hear from Bok Bok, Kingdom, and MikeQ as well as the voice and producer of “Icy Lake,” as well as the endless inspiration loop of how tracks are born, forgotten, rediscovered, and given new life by subsequent generations.

Watch the Icy Lake film here, check out all the remixes on the digital release below, and preorder the 12″ of “Icy Lake” at Rough Trade.
