CSLSX: a Philly collective

Post Author:

CSLSX reps Philadelphia, but the collective's members stretch to distant lands like Paris, Budapest and London. Knowing this only makes understanding the collage process of its sample heavy marraige of freestyle and disco more difficult to comprehend. Are these songs passed around the world, slowly gathering layers along with Visa stamps, until it lands back in Philly and on the internet?

A year ago “Futuretapes” put them on the radar, but last month's remix of Bibio's “Jealous Of Roses” stirred the intrigue again. Both of these songs, as well as a Light Pollution remix, can be heard on CSLSX's Soundcloud. We suggest playing its latest track “Keep On Shining” to revel in some “Strawberry Letter 23” manipulation (the latest trend in ubiquity samples the most ubiquitous song of all time) and allowing the page play itself out – there's literally never a dull moment with CSLSX.
