Bushwick venue Bossa Nova Civic Club is one of Brooklyn's more recent additions, yet has become a focal point for some of NYC's key figures with events featuring representatives from L.I.E.S. and The Bunker complementing guests like Jacques Renault and Anthony Naples. Emboldened by this prospering creative vibe, Bossa Nova Civic Club have teamed up with Sisterjam, a local consultation, management and event promotion collective for a series of 12" EPs under the banner Bushwick Is Melting. This first volume features four tracks from Brooklyn-based producers, each reflecting a different side to the area's musical underground. L.I.E.S. artist Marcos Cabral contributes, as does his Runaway partner Jacques Renault who teams up with NYC techno veteran Mark Verbos, whilst there is also music from Mannequin Records act Dusk, and Aurora Halal, the person behind the Mutual Dreaming parties who makes her solo production debut with "Hazy G".

The second volume of Bushwick Is Melting features original unreleased material by Brooklyn-based producers Black Meteoric Star, Lorna Dune, and J. Slusher. Gavin Russom apparently has a new Black Meteoric Start LP on the way and we can't wait based on the epic, sweeping grandness that is the 18 minute A-side hogger "Unearthed Arcana" which is quite hypnotic when in full flight. The B-side finds Lorna Dune putting her experiments with the piano to one side to focus on some celestial house moves with "Reflux" which will appeal to fans of Legowelt's more star gazing moments whilst the wonderfully named J. Slusher closes out the record with the face melting techno cut "Night Train".
