Soulful Encounters Of The 3rd Kind
Cat: HPOG 004. Rel: 07 Dec 20
Breakbeat
  1. Pick It Keep It (5:14)
  2. Feel The Rhythm Of Your Soul (6:04)
  3. Round & Round (5:33)
  4. Mojka In Space (5:52)
Review: London record label and party High Praise have put out a series of hotly in demand 12"s that have all sold out in record time. Behind this next one is Russian producer and DJ extraordinaire Lay-Far wo. This artist has landed on the likes of Lumberjacks In Hell, Razor N' Tape, Local Talk, BBE, AtJazz, Tru Thoughts and more, so is a key figure in the soulful, bass laden scene. And he serves all that up and more here with opener 'Pick It Keep It' layering old breakbeats with diving bass. 'Feel The Rhythm Of Your Soul' is a hyper speed drum workout with yelping vocals and then 'Mojika in Space' gets all pixelated and computerised in its melodies.

Same As It Never Was
Same As It Never Was (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: LIH 040. Rel: 11 Jan 21
Deep House
  1. Good Thing! (5:42)
  2. Up We Go! (4:57)
  3. HEAVY (5:16)
  4. My Reflection (4:52)
Review: Moscow-based producer Alex Leyfa has been active for the best part of 10 years now, dropping albums on Local Talk and In-Beat-Ween as well as scores of EPs for City Fly, 4Lux, Soundofspeed, G.A.M.M. and many more. Now he's up on Lumberjacks with some choice cuts that show off his instinct for fluttering breakbeats as much as headsy house music, not least on the soaring, smooth delights of 'Good Thing!'. 'Up We Go!' rides another high grade break and chops up plenty of soul samples in the mix too, while 'HEAVY' explores a wilder broken beat terrain where you can almost visualise Leyfa getting creative on the MPC pads. 'My Reflection' completes the set with a seriously grooving house cut replete with loom bird samples and dreamy guitar licks.

Reimagine Yourself EP
Cat: BCB 011. Rel: 04 Dec 19
Deep House
  1. Embrace The Contradictions (5:34)
  2. Spiral Movement (6:43)
  3. Something Else (6:18)
  4. April (4:35)
Review: Russian craftsman Alexander Lay Far has released his underground disco joints on Local Talk, Leng and his own In Beat Ween Music in recent times. Now the man resurfaces on Bristol's Boogie Cafe with "Reimagine Yourself EP", and it's a fitting home for these bass heavy and sampled based jams. From the pitched-down junglist stepper of "Spiral Movement", to the dusted down, broken beat emotions of "Something Else" or the bittersweet electro-soul futurism of closing cut "April" - this could be some of the best stuff we've heard from the talented Muscovite yet!

Never Good Enough For You
Cat: NBTWN 009. Rel: 21 Feb 18
Deep House
  1. Never Good Enough For You (feat Stee Downes) (4:57)
  2. Never Good Enough For You (feat Stee Downes - remix) (4:14)
  3. Never Good Enough For You (feat Stee Downes - instrumental) (4:57)
  4. Blow My Mind (bonus track) (4:05)
Review: It would be fair to say that Stee Downes, a vocalist, beat-maker and producer whose soul-flecked productions have appeared on such labels as Sonar Kollektiv and Lazy Days Recordings, is a perfect foil for talented Russian house head Alexander Lay-Far. In its original form, "Never Good Enough For You" is a jaunty, rolling treat - a hip-hop influenced soulful house throw-down propelled forwards by a deliciously loose, broken house groove. It's accompanied by a tidy instrumental and the bass-heavy house "Remix", which features "straighter" deep house beats and a wicked analogue bassline. The bustling hip-house influences can also be heard on Lay-Far solo cut "Blow My Mind", a throwback to the Halcyon days of rolling West London broken beat that makes use of some killer P-funk synths.

Lay Far Re Edits
Cat: VG 02. Rel: 22 Nov 17
Deep House
  1. I'm An Indian Too (Lay-Far Refix) (5:28)
  2. Like Her (Lay-Far re-edit) (4:45)
  3. The Right One (Lay-Far dub Tweak) (5:47)
Review: The second release from the Version Galore label, following up an awesome inaugural release by Opolopo. They're are delighted to present you with something special from the heart of Russia - handcrafted re-edits by the Moscow based groove expert Alexander Lay-Far of Basic Fingers, GAMM and BBE fame. The disco fiend turns his deft hand at a tight resplice of a classic by a certain Rhumba band from 2nd Avenue on "I'm An Indian Too" (Lay-Far Refix) and this is raw funk! Next up, ladies & gentlemen (hint hint!) we have the Afrobeat soul explosion of "Like Her" (Lay-Far re-edit). Finally on the flip, Lay Far dives deep on the late night sleaze of "The Right One" (Lay-Far dub Tweak) that features some right pizazz if we do say so ourselves.

So Many Ways Remixed Part 3
So Many Ways Remixed Part 3 (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: NBTWN 003. Rel: 20 Apr 15
Deep House
  1. Yes You Can (Kaytronik rub) (6:54)
  2. A Little Faith (D-Malice Afro Expression) (6:25)
  3. Can't Deny (Phil Asher remix) (6:45)
  4. When I'm Seeing You (Red Rack'em remix) (6:37)
Review: In the third (and last) part of "So Many Ways Remixed" series we have yet another special set of heavyweights, delivering their own reinterpretations of Lay-Far original album tracks. Please welcome Kaytronik, D-Malice, Phil Asher and Red Rack'Em!

Kaytronik aka Karizma opens the EP with his Rub of "Yes You Can". Frankly speaking, from the very beginning of the project we were expecting something special from the Baltimore-based house guru, but the final result surpassed it all for us - what you're about to hear is a very soulful and deep dance number but with power and grit to shake large festival dance floors! Get ready!

On A2 the pro-active afro-house aficionado D-Malice (Defected, Soul Candi, DM.Recordings) delivers a percussion-heavy banger that will make you swing in no time. You know where it all began, don't you?!

The UK house legend Phil Asher kicks off the Side B with a remix of "Can't Deny", featuring Yannah Valdevit and Souled. Strong dance grooves is what Phlash has always been notorious for - this remix is another vivid example of the principle! Ain't no need to question the authority.

Last but not least we have the old pirate Red Rack'Em, delivering his trademark deep & dirty house sound with hints of Detroit and dub techno influences. A perfect soundtrack for a midnight voyage on a ghost ship or a basement party, maybe. Aye!

So Many Ways Remixed Part 1
So Many Ways Remixed Part 1 (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: NBTWN 001. Rel: 02 Feb 15
Deep House
  1. Lay Far & Pete Simpson - "Stand Up" (Atjazz remix)
  2. Lay Far & Vicky Flint - "When I'm Seeing You" (Inkswel remix)
  3. Lay Far & Yannah Valdevit - "Summer Vacation" (Jonny Miller remix)
  4. Lay Far - "That Dream" (Thatmanmonkz Gon' Git You Sucka remix)
Review: Lay-Far's critically acclaimed debut album "So Many Ways" which took him worldwide gets a friendly treatment from the global music family! In the first installment of the remix series we have artistic versions from Atjazz, Inkswel, Jonny Miller and Thatmanmonkz! Martin Iveson kicks off the EP with a masterpiece of a remix for one of the highlights of the album - electronic ballad "Stand Up" featuring Pete Simpson. When the strings come in you realize - it's Atjazz at his best - conscious boogie for the soul! We believe it may easily become future classics! Inkswel's version of "When I'm Seeing You" is soaked in the warm sound of distorted drum machines and tape delays. Be warned - this heavy-hitter can actually damage your speakers! The B-side opens with the deep and sophisticated afro house of Jonny Miller whose remix of "Summer Vacation" immediately teleports you to the open air party in the Adriatic Sea coast. Last but not the least we have Sheffield's own Thatmanmonkz revisiting "That Dream". Inspired heavily by classic blaxploitation movies, Shadeleaf Music label boss comes up with a dynamic soundtrack for the imaginary chase scene. Badass!
