Could be wrong but I think this is on the Dope Jams compilation that me and my palz bump every single time we go to Cyprus.

I am right


We play this every year by the pool and its perfect - esp. "Destination" by Anada Project

"Just hits different" in that climate for some reason

I used to go to their store on myrtle ave in bed-stuy Brooklyn, great space, used to throw parties in it. they moved to a tiny town about 2.5 hours north of the city, changed the name to preserved instincts, now they hold backyard parties. wonder who actually goes to the store, it's seriously in the middle of nowhere. maybe just a cheap place for online/mailorder sales. or a front for less legal activities.

they were (are?) notorious for bootlegging rare old house and garage singles (or their own mixes of them), and creating their own unauthorized comp CDs. Willing to bet most of these are unauthorized. This is a good comp. Think they're also the ones behind these three Tony Humphries "Club Zanzibar Classics" comp boots as well.

“Club Zanzibar Classics” as a label says it all. From the previous compilation I would‘ve included this mix instead because <Blaze>. Hammers a good system outdoors under the stars, not that there’ll be any of that for the foreseeable future

Were they as rude as they are renowned to be? Heard stories about them telling people to leave the store for requesting to listen to a shit record etc?

I never witnessed it personally but there are stories. good article here, for example:

Anyone who's spent a bit of time in Dope Jams has probably encountered similar jabs: these guys are infamously salty. "You have to understand," Englehardt explains, "we are complete assholes. We are complete fucking assholes. We know that we're assholes and we're okay with that. And, like, the people that like us are usually assholes, too, or appreciate the fact that we're complete assholes, you know what I mean?"

Chat with Englehardt, and you're likely to come away with the impression that everything—from the shop's bread-and-butter clientele ("DJs have always been the most closed-minded music shoppers that I've ever seen") to Nicolas Jaar's recorded output ("It's boring, watered-down trip-hop from the '90s with an Ableton twist. Fuck you.") to my RA colleagues (a description on their website offered this summation of Vakula's Leleka 2: "Further proof that Philip Sherburne should go before Ethiopian Emperors and be decapitated")—sucks.

Combined with their reputation as unapologetic bootleggers and general shut-ins (don't look around for Englehardt or Nickerson at the Bunker or Mister Saturday Night; they're not there), their shtick can be off-putting—a bit more extra baggage than you'd like to accompany the $15.99 asking price of an import 12-inch in America these days. But Dope Jams isn't merely a clubhouse for dance music pranksters; it's the embodiment of a critique, though one that falls outside the realm of the strictly intellectual. It's the last reserve of dopeness in a world they see as increasingly bereft of it.

and let's face it, DJs can certainly be stuck up assholes, so I assume they can also be irritating customers.
