DJ Dodger Stadium Hit Sad Techno Sweet Spot in ‘Never Win’ Video
Body High label bosses Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy combine for 'Friend of Mine' album
DJ Dodger Stadium combines the talents of Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy, co-founders of the rising Los Angeles dance label Body High. We’ve heard them each individually on SPIN before — check Jerome’s “Deleted,” and Samo’s “Divine” to get a feel for them apart — but on July 8, they’ll co-release Friend of Mine under that geographically specific moniker. The label promises “10 pieces of hypnotic techno that tell the story of a wounded soul’s search for redemption and peace,” and that sounds about right. Above you can hear the just-shared song “Never Win,” via XLR8R, which laces that downtrodden sentiment with melancholic yet body-moving beats. The accompanying video gives us a dusky tour of DJ Dodger Stadium’s city, much like the previously released clip for album-opener “Love Songs.” Because the music’s great, you can watch that one below, too.
