Azari & III is an exciting new Detroit/early 90ies house/acid tribute project from Toronto, consisting of producer/musicians Dinamo Azari and Alixander III and vocalists Fritz Helder and Starving Yet Full. Their debut album “Reckless” was supposed to be released on Modular on June 29, but at the moment it seems like the release will be delayed – the quartet has just announced that their new single “Maniac” (stream below) will be released on August 7 and that the official UK release of the album will be on August 11 -> looks like this is the acutal release date.
“Reckless” will bring together new stuff with a couple of already-released tracks from the past months, such as “Manhooker” (that has seemd to pop out on YouTube out of nowhere in January last year) and their singles “Into The Night” (titel track of their EP via Turbo from autumn, video below) and “Hungry For The Power”, which especially got known because it’s video by filmmaker George Vale was banned from YouTube for some time (posted below as well).
Check out this latest press text for the guys tour plans and this Facebook page if you live in London and want to be part of the “Reckless” release gig in early August. I also recomment downloading the Azari & III FACT mixtape if you want to know more about where the band is coming from musically and this nice interview with the guys featured in the current issue of the awesome ‘SUP Magazine. From the ‘SUP website I stole the gorgeous picture on top by the way, I hope they’ll forgive me. It was taken by Petra Collins.
