As a venerated torchbearer of second-wave Detroit techno, the Black Flag label-boss has been crafting sleek and soulful dance music since many of today’s clubbers were merely a twinkle in their parent’s eye. His ability to concoct pounding, infectious grooves is on full display with ‘Feel It / Circus Act,’ which finds him harkening back to ‘90s tradition of latching on a variety of mixes and VIPs onto a record. 

“Feel It” is high tech soul at its finest. It’s built around squelchy bass, crunchy drums, and a soothing vocal that elegantly contrasts the track’s raw, roughed up tone. Stacey ramps up the energy on the Full Force Mix, employing a beefy bassline that will add finesse to both house and techno sets. Meanwhile, the Nice & Smoove mix provides a deeper, headier cut bolstering a hypnotic groove and textured sound design capable of enveloping listeners from all angles.

“‘Feel It’ is driven by the sensational vocal snippet of Mighty Real by Sylvester,” says Stacey Pullen. “The adlib vocal is fueled by a driven bassline and the bassline fuels the track with excitement and energy.”

“Circus Act” takes the framework of classic, loop-based house and furthers it with all of Stacey’s sonic trademarks. A relentless sample burrows itself deeper into your eardrums as it pounds along in half bar iterations, resulting in an effective and sophisticated roller perfect for building momentum on the floor. On remix duty is the legendary Nic Fanciulli, stacking Stacey’s insistent formula alongside an insatiable bassline. Fanciulli teases the track’s original elements as he leads into a dizzying climax of crispy 909 snares, before dropping back into the track’s muscular beat. 

It doesn’t end there, folks. For good measure, there are two extra versions of “Circus Act” tossed into the rotation with the SP Retool Remix and ReRemix (yes, you read that right). These two reworks function as robust DJ tools that scatter the track’s original elements around seemingly endless layers of percussion. They are, again, strong rollers designed for peak hours and are sure to move more than a few feet in the club.

“‘Circus Act’ has a disco sample from one of my favorite Italo Disco records from the ‘80s and has always inspired me when I heard it,” explains Pullen.

Built around his extensive knowledge as a selector and his unmatched expertise in the studio, Stacey Pullen’s ‘Feel It / Circus Act’ is available everywhere via Factory 93 Records.

More About Factory 93

Factory 93 explores the intersection of untethered creativity and bold self-expression, while never taking its finger off the pulse of the underground. When Insomniac broke out its figurative bolt cutters to dismantle the lock on the warehouse scene and return to its roots, it retold the story of its origins in hosting historic parties in the streets of Los Angeles. It also gave birth to a movement where discerning heads are living on the frontlines of celebrating radical ideas through the fusion of immersive live art, cutting-edge technology, and exceptionally curated house and techno. That vision continues to hold the same ground, even as the brand has grown and extends beyond the Downtown Los Angeles warehouse district, where it was originally conceived. Whether it’s at an intimate warehouse space or on a festival dancefloor, Factory 93 manufactures moments that make this culture one we’re proud to call our own.
