Record labels Night Slugs and Fade to Mind have teamed up with Thump to release a documentary called Icy Lake. The film traces the history of an obscure yet influential song called “Icy Lake”.
The short documentary centers around “Icy Lake”, but really explores so much more. It provides a really informative and authentic look at the 90s house music scene, voguing, and New York clubs. It’s interesting to look at the history of house music and dance clubs and compare the scene’s marginalized roots to today’s EDM-saturation.
The two labels have also re-released the track with four new remixes.
