Known for driving lo-fi house tracks, funky breakbeats and their annual epic 4-20 mix, the duo of Julian C. Duron and Michael Sherburn (also of DUST) have taken a more playful turn on their twelfth vinyl release as Earth Boys. As its title suggests, DITTIES is a lighthearted yet earnest dance-pop EP, featuring catchy melodies, conversational lyrics, and whimsical storytelling. Lyrically, it draws on both nostalgic memories of raves past (We Didn't See the End, Freight, KIM 3.6) and dreamlike fictional scenarios (Touchdown, Autobahn) to craft a timeless paean to dance music through the years.

For this project, the duo mined their decades of experience as NYC rave stalwarts for inspiration. Intro track "We Didn't See the End" is a personal and poetic tune that sees Duron recounting his first memories producing music, promoting events, and relocating to NYC in the early 00's. “When I played my first show, it was for no money,” he muses in a casual, conversational tone, “it was on the concrete, it was me and my homies.” Later, on “KIM 3.6”, he recalls his time operating an illegal weed delivery service in New York. “The service just had cards that said KIM with the number on the back, ‘Keep it Moving’ like the Tribe Called Quest track. ‘3.6’ because our bags were .1 grams over the weight of an 8th,” he explains. “Our edge was actually just an honest deal. I thought a song about this would be fun.”
