DFA has always been about scrappy disco. Even if it's produced clean, their artists always have an eager young pup vibe. Black Van is DFA's first true foray into grown and sexy. An outgrowth of Death From Abroad, their singles sub-label releasing international groups, Black Van are the German duo of Kris Menace and KoweSix producing super smooth and proper disco-house. Check "Yearning" from their first 12-inch single on their MySpace, and then below it, check their True Love mix, which could very well be called "Our Influences in Being Mature and Caring for One Another While Listening to High Quality Music That Often Takes Itself Seriously Because it is Serious. But We Also Enjoy Forays into Space with Deep Syntheziers. We are European, You Know." But that was too long. Zing? Whatever. Jams! How do you say jams in European?
