Techno
Discodromo are delighted to present a three-vinyl compilation to celebrate the tenth birthday of their Berlin party CockTail d'Amore. The compilation features the sound that best envisions the party and its evolution throughout its first D102decade.
This vinyl features the sound of the Cosmic Hole, a room dedicated to downtempo psychedelia. CPI, the name behind Marc PiNol and Hugo Capablanca's collaborative project, launches this record with a hypnotic acid ballad named Mount Anal: for a late night slow-mo dance experience. Synth-noir melodies are brought by two label aficionados, Juan Ramos and Kris Baha, while Honeysoundsystem's Bezier journeys to a One Thousand and One Nights soundscape with his Starpoint.

This installment features the sound of the Garden and its kaleidoscopic surges. Tornado Wallace's contribution is a fetishized Italo-High-Energy adventure. On the same side the breaks of Greenvision's Sleeping Bag In New York conjure a clubber's hallucinations on aASunday afternoon. Bell Towers and Bon Voyage nostalgically cover the flip side. The former with synth pop inspired ode to the this special dance-floor and the latter with a classic cosmic emotional composition.

Jonathan Kusuma's Energi Hall expresses the Main Room sound in his own future-tribal terms as does DJ City with his bleep house-inspired Torreyson Drive. This vinyl features two highly desired collaborations: Mascaras x Powder on one side and Samo DJ and Sleep D on the other. If the former explore polyrhythmic grooves and unexpected sonic layering, the latter drift into arpeggiated iterations of modern Trance.

Last Four Weeks

Deep House
Belarus' Sergey Abramov, aka Funkyjaws, revives his Manwoman alias to produce a classy EP of deep house that speaks to his experience in the studio. "Pub Which Plays A Disco" is a catchy, funked-up affair that still manages to keep things cool and restrained at the same time. The Roland Nights mix of "It's Just" takes a slightly more uptempo approach without losing the overall deep vibe, while another of Abramov's original, "Love Song", locks into a raw, live feeling and rolls with it. There's also a track from Eddie Matos on this 12", remixed by Rune Lindbaek and Frisvold and turned into a shimmering, disco-licked immersion heater.
Techno
The latest release on AE Recordings showcases a whole host of excellent producers versed in the language of icy Scandinavian techno. Anton Kubikov is up first with the forlorn leads and dubby ripples of "When Is Deep", which is followed up by a wonderfully dusty deep house locomotive from Ohm & Octal Industries. Thor gets into a strident micro house groove on "Who Stole My Yacht", peppering the swung drums with plenty of immersion chamber echoes and pings. SCSI9 makes a welcome return to close the record out with "Aetherius", a classic minimal tech house bouncer with plenty of spooky atmospherics on top of the mid-00s flavoured synth hooks.
Minimal/Tech House
Matthew Farrow brings his Kepler project back to Aesthetic following sterling turns on Silencio, Pathway Traxx and Pleasure Zone. The vibe is infectiously bouncy on opening track "Us01", while "Heads Down" stays true to its title as it favours a subtle approach for meditative immersion in the tech house tradition. "Dream State" finds Farrow exploring his jazzy tendencies once more with some ace, ear-catching chords that skip around a shuffling beat. "Locker" rounds the EP out with a mellow, dubby groover shaped out by gaseous pads and underpinned by a subtle, wriggling synth line.
Disco/Nu-Disco
From Robsoul and Tsuba to Is It Balearic? and Futureboogie, Craig Bratley can be many things depending on who's releasing his music. He launches the Automatism label in a flurry of cosmic disco finery with "Ursa Minor", a synth-rich escapade that could make Cerrone feel a little giddy on its course to the stars. "Exotic Matter" slows things right down and ramps up the rock drums to create a noirish soundtrack vibe. "Exquisite Corpse (Zero Gravity Mix)" changes tact once more with some plaintive piano tinkering over subtle arpeggios, and "Running To Paradise" slides down into a smooth Balearic groove that rounds out this wonderfully diverse EP.
Minimal/Tech House
Robert James kicks off his Body Movement label with a tasteful trip into the realms of mystical electro and emotive techno. "Revenge Of The Wasp" draws from the Drexciya playbook with its snappy electro funk rhythm section and sleek future-shock pads. "Life Grooves" takes a tougher approach, channeling bleep and acid with an upferrit attitude and some soothing pads for an atmospheric counterbalance. "Break Mode" deals in some chopped up drum loops, edited to perfection and strapped to a strident tempo that should appeal to house, techno and rave-minded DJs alike. Voigtmann then drops a remix of "Break Mode" that boils the original down to a hypnotising tech house core - one for the DJs to get creative with.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Taking a break from their usual Italian remit, Best turn their attention to an overlooked pioneer from the annals of German electronic music history. Harry Thumann was based in Munich, and primarily worked as a studio engineer, but his own recorded work was vitally important too. An early adopter of MIDI, and with a propulsive electronic disco sound that was right at the cutting edge of the times, the four "experiments" Best have gathered here represent some of the most potent dancefloor jams he created - full-fat technicolour fever dreams for the fabulous and flamboyant.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Following killer releases from lesser-known talents like Aristidez, Colossio and Thomass Jackson, Mexico's premier modern disco label Calypso commence a new project that sees them celebrating some of their favourite cities around the world. The journey starts in Tel Aviv, where a range of underground producers present the kind of freaky disco-not-disco sounds that get dancefloors frisky the world over these days. Niv Ast keeps things simmering and sensuous on "Rainey Heart," while Rina gets locked into a dense chug of sweaty sonics and solid rhythms. Naduve has a slower, percussion-led groove rolling on "Hex Mex" that will inject spice into any adventurous warm-up, and Middle Sky Boom finishes the record off with the tense and teasing "Marble Arch".
Deep House
Deep house devotee Jose Rico is back with his superlative sound on Chubby, bringing the kind of maturity and measured energy befitting of such a master craftsman. The smouldering tones of "Can't Be Too Paradise", the lofty plumes of "Four Eyes", the sweet piano chops and bouncing b-line of "Gem Vmu" - this is how deep house should be done. Eternally musical, soulful and yet understated, Rico is supremely focused on his area of inspiration and yet his sound always brims with passion and invention. If you're craving a mood you can sink into, this is the one.
Techno
Crayon take another trip into the realm of deep house with this split 12" from a range of talented individuals. D'Funk takes a little lick from Roy Ayers on "Follow Me" and frames the sample in spooky keys carried along by a sturdy four-to-the-floor thump. Adam Collins and Mark Ambrose get a bit freakier on "Modern Moule", using all kinds of oddball sounds to whip up a decidedly off-kilter mood. D'Funk's "Break For Jungle" takes a few cues from the hardcore continuum, and places them in the context of an uptempo house workout, and then Mark Ambrose completes the set with the amped up old-skool techno energy of "Machine Man".
Deep House
The deepArtSounds label welcome the mighty Jenifa Mayanja to their label to bring some East Coast deepness to a label with a strong track record in the house domain. Mayanja is captivating on "Submission", a balmy trip as playful as it is restrained. "Longing" brings in a distinct soul focus, with gorgeous vocals and tinkling keys swirling in the mix together. "Chase The Darkness" shakes things up with crooked percussion and a catchy lead. "Building Myth" kicks the B-side off in truly spiritual fashion, riding a drum roll to die for and peppering the track with splashes of horns and an inspiring speech. "Once Upon A Time" cools things down with a spaced out downtempo offering, setting the scene perfectly for Allstarr Motomusic to create a sublime deep techno version of "Longing".
Techno
For the latest missive on their fast-rising DET313 label, Gary Martin and Yossi Amoyal have dug deep into the archives of Martin's long-running Teknotika Records imprint. First up on the A-side is a re-mastered version of "A City At Night", a Martin cut from 1990 that mixes the futurist intent of Motor City techno with chunkier, UK style techno grooves and the kind of stabs and musical flourishes more associated with Robert Hood or Terrence Parker records. Side B boasts a freshly extended edit of another Martin gem - this time under the Gigi Galaxy alias - from 1994. "The Dream" more than lives up to its title, with Martin wrapping restless bass, starry lead lines, alien electronics and sumptuous chords around a hypnotic deep techno groove.
Minimal/Tech House
The latest compilation 12" from Dungeon Meat brings together a heavyweight cast for a trip into the seedy underbelly of tech house. Leading the charge is Honey Dijon, who's on tough and heavy-grooving form with the low-end pulsing pump of "Blue Sky". Desert Sound Colony shakes things up with a quirky, bumping sample juggler in "Where Are Ya?" - calling to mind the madcap antics of Jacob London but less goofy and more mean tempered. Danielle Temperilli takes cues from UK garage for the crooked 2-step freakery of "Rattlesnake" - a wild card deep cut for the heads to get quizzical to.
Balearic/Downtempo
Glen Velez is perhaps not a household name, but let Emotional Rescue change that with this wonderfully curated collection of works from a masterful drum devotee. Velez has Latin American roots, and he has performed since the late 60s in New York, but his interest in percussion spans the globe and all kinds of hand drums. His respected techniques have been snapped up by collaborators like John Cage and Steve Reich, not least thanks to the advanced polyrhythmic modes he operates in. Don't be fooled though - this isn't just a drum record. Accompanying musicians shape out the hypnotic percussion in a variety of transcendental moods that make this an invigorating listen start to finish.
Balearic/Downtempo
Ever the educators, Emotional Rescue are now turning their attention to the 90s "Afro-cosmic" scene - a sound that spread through Europe following the influence of Daniele Baldelli and his pioneering DJing in Italy in the late '70s. Munich's The New Morning were amongst the many crews inspired by what Baldelli was championing, and they created incredible, unusual dance music that easily stands up to modern standards for its inventive fusions of global influences and electronic technology. From the heady house throw down "In Japan" to the cosmic dancehall flex of "Jay's Rhama", there's so much to vibe off here, all of it highly compatible with the adventurous sounds creeping into DJ sets in the current era.
Disco/Nu-Disco
"Quando Tu Dances" was a hit for Micky Milan back in 1982 when it came out on Salsoul, and it has that seminal label's brand of disco funk spilling out of every bar. Now Faze Action have drafted a strong serving of remixers to bring a few deft touches to some of Milan's biggest hits, leading in with Willie Graff and his tasteful edit of the title track that lets the original vibe shine through in all its sunny finery. Faze Action themselves take on "C'est Une Bombe" - another slick '80s jam with plenty of boogie licks to complement the warmth of the guitar and Latin percussion. Finally we get an untouched original, the more spaced out cosmic pop jam "Les Vacances On S'eclete, On S'evade".
Techno
Mihail P comes to Ferox with some taut techno very much drawing from the vein of machine soul that has defined Russ Gabriel's label since the start. "Intense City" is shrouded in mysterious pads, but it crackles with an urgent energy thanks to the razor sharp drum programming. "Sunrays" is a sweeter affair loaded with cascading synth delights, and "Angelic Whispers" takes things even deeper with an ambient-leaning palette. "Focusyn" is another mellow reflection, but this time there's a greater emphasis on crafty rhythms to offset the melancholy of the pads.
Deep House
Hot on the heels of the "Time & Space" album, Jorge Caiado is back on his home turf with a new 12" produced in tribute to his dearly departed dog Nasha. The dedication track is a beautiful slice of jazzy house with nimble key playing throughout, which Brawther takes in a deeper direction for his remix. "Tangram With My Sister" is a snappier affair with crisp drums and slick chords, and "Passeio Alegre" maintains the mellow flow with more plush keys and a tight beat. Even if it came from a sad place, Caiado sounds philosophical and even uplifting on this refined EP, positioning himself as one of the finest contemporary deep house producers in operation right now.
UK Garage
Matthew Farrow takes a break from his Kepler alias to deliver this sure shot of garage rudeness to Burnski's Instinct label, and he's sounding absolutely on point. "Inside" has plenty of MC flava sprinkled over it, not to mention all the 4x4 rudeness you could wish for from the bassline upwards. "Steppa" is a more soulful cut with a crafty breakstep twist to it, while "Rouge Fader" brings it back to that naughty middle ground between uptempo house and proper swinging garage, DX7 organ and all. "Break" gets tricky with the drum licks again, completing a set of good time rabble rousing business.
UK Garage
Following seven sterling 12"s that have established him as a serious player in the garage department, Burnski seals the deal on his Instinct alias with an album that blows the scope of the project wide open. Just listen to the stirring strings of opening track "Frozen" or the jungle-flecked urgency of "Home" and you'll hear new dimensions to the sound revealing themselves with each listen. Steeped in cinematic imagery and loaded with obsessive levels of attention to detail, it's a powerful artistic statement that pushes Instinct to the forefront of Burnski's creative concerns.
Disco/Nu-Disco
The last we heard from Kinfolk was on the excellent "Mirage" by Kalidasa, but now the adventurous and chug-friendly label is back with this killer EP from Alterleo. "Cabriodelic" will have hips swinging at an easy tempo, not least thanks to the nagging throb of the bassline and the swaying drums shaking over the top of the track. "On The Way" takes things in a freakier direction, using ample samples and channeling a little industrial noir, while "Tour De L'afrique" focuses on craftily programmed drums and captivating melodic subtleties. "In Sands" finishes the set with a wigged out acid-trance rumination that should appeal to those who love the sound of European freak-beats before dance music got compartmentalized.
Deep House
Derek Carr's reputation as a treasured force in UK deep techno is well established now, at least compared to before his mammoth reissue campaign with For Those That Knoe began. Label and artist deliver once again, this time with a mammoth quadruple pack vinyl that gathers together some of the best digital-only releases Carr has put out. This package is incredible value for money, positively overflowing with thoughtfully rendered sci-fi soul that will keep you returning to make new discoveries for years to come. Whether it's the aqueous funk of "Angels" or the airy electro of "25th," every one of these 17 tracks is gold.
Minimal/Tech House
After they last shared wax on Mosaic back in 2017, UK dub techno veteran Steve O'Sullivan and prolific minimal house rising star Frazer Campbell link up once again for the sleek and sophisticated sounds of "Straight To The Source". It's a shuffling, funky workout with understated b-lines to suck you in and subtle splashes of reverb to shape out a heady atmosphere. "Hypnotonic (West Side Shuffle)" on the flip has a more bubbling, psychedelic quality to it, without losing that cool Mosaic veneer that makes these joints so workable in so many different situations.
Deep House
The latest joint on Minneapolis Exchange welcomes Detroit house master Javonntte on one side, and Minneapolis' Lowry Boys on the flip. Javonntte is on impeccable form, unfurling his cool and smoky strain of soul on "Say it" and amping up the emotion with the heartfelt "Tears". "Acid House" isn't quite a jacker, but more of a curious diversion into deep house with a 303 undercurrent. Lowry Boys' "Minneapolis Funk" is a blunted bumper - packing loads of swing but keeping the chord hook submerged. "Shag Carpets" is a sweet, piano-sprinkled delight, and "Pure Uncut Acapella" gives you the vocal sample from "Minneapolis Funk" to drop in wherever you want to.
Deep House
Reedale Rise is next up on Ornate Music, plying his trade in deep-diving techno and electro on a label that revels in such sounds. Following the trend set out by his turns on Hizou and Frustrated Funk, the pads shimmer and gleam while the leads dart nimbly around the tightly locked machine rhythms on these three extremely tasteful workouts. "Barbary Coast" is a mystical delight of a track that twinkles up top and hits hard down in the rhythm section. "Breath Control" is a more forward-thrusting 4/4 groover, while "Xingu" explores crafty 2-step funk with plenty more of that starry-eyed sci-fi synth play in tow.
Coldwave/Synth
The new Platform 23 release speaks to the fun and freaky side of vintage industrial - all Fairlight CMI slap bass funk and madcap sampling that nods to Tackhead amongst other reference points. It's no surprise to learn Chel White was producing this music between 1985 and 1991, although it's impressive considering he was primarily busy as a visual artist. Behind the zany sound palette there are some serious chops too - a distinct flavour that's all his own which reflects the early days of sample culture opening up the language of electronic music production in immeasurable ways.
Coldwave/Synth
Concept City was a low-key release in 1985 that surfaced on Cordelia Records, an underground favourite for lovers of esoteric ruminations from bedroom producers tinkering with technology. That makes it no surprise this reissue of work from Mr Concept appears on Platform 23, the perfect home for such charming collages of sound recorded on lo-fi four track. The mood veers from track to track on "November" but there's a generous nod to The Durutti Column in the lingering guitar refrains that appear on many tracks. The scratchy, stuttering samples take on a hypnotic quality in their manic triggering, all caked together on tape and now lovingly repressed for fresh, inquisitive ears.
Minimal/Tech House
The second release on Romana finds Magnus Asberg getting an extended remix treatment from Dudley Strangeways on the A side, as "Tape" gets contorted and mutated over 12 minutes for a perfect, hypnagogic trip. The original of "Tape" has its own share of wobbly weirdness going on, but it's framed by a more pronounced beat for livelier moments on the floor. "Porta Rain" keeps the modular tinkering up too, with a wild lead line that will dig right into your grey matter as it wraps itself around another stout groove.
Deep House
Canada's Nick Holder is one of those understated heroes of deep house - his career runs far and wide, and can be a bit daunting to dig into retrospectively. That makes a release like this immensely useful, picking out a few absolute gems and giving them a fresh airing. First up is "Love Is Blind" from 1999, a beautiful hazy, shuffling cut for the mellowest moments. "Blackman" is from the year before - a potent message wrapped up in a soulful groove. The record rides out with "She Likes It (Remix)", which works around a nagging drum break to make for a powerful club tool.
Disco/Nu-Disco
It feels like barely any time has passed since Javi Frias last set our bags alight with "Just Give It Up", but he's back once more on his own Night Shift with more of those oh-so-cool edits to share with the world. The strain of disco funk he's digging into on this record is just sublime, particularly on the A side with the self-explanatory "Party Music" and sweet string sizzle of "Keep On". On the B side there's a fiercer uptempo slant to "So Tight" and a more classic soul feel to "Everything" - one to bring a crowd together in a moment of heartfelt expression whether they know the words or not.
Techno
It would be fair to say that "On A Different Note", the debut album from long-serving German producer Andreas Werner, has been a long time coming. Astonishingly, it's been 15 years since he first started exploring the deeper side of techno and tech-house under the Audio Werner alias, making the album a genuine 'event' release. Happily, it more than lives up to the hype, with Werner offering up a fine selection of melodious and atmospheric, club-ready cuts and occasional forays into intoxicating, otherworldly, beat-free territory (see the weird and spaced out "Es". Highlights include life-affirming opener "Ohne", the 13-minute deep tribal techno jam "Vogel" and the inspired ambient techno outing "Alter", which has echoes of Biosphere's 1993 cut "Baby Satellite".
Electro
Fleck E.S.C has been doggedly flaunting his wares in the electronic underground for some time, with a mammoth back catalogue of robotic machine soul across low key digital labels as well as the likes of Electrix and Central Processing Unit. Now he glides over to Untitled Recs with some especially dynamic cuts that balance tricksy programming and the rudeness of electro funk with a more fluttering electronica sensibility that's heavy on emotion. Just check "Free Play" with its gorgeous interplay of varying synth tones locked into a melodious funk. There's a variety in grooves to be enjoyed here too, including the stepping stutter of "Skins & Scales" and the fractured patterns of the title track.
Techno
It feels like too long since we heard anything new from Joey Anderson, but it's wonderful to see him returning to the fray on a label we love as dearly as Uzuri. It's plain to hear none of the US techno maverick's wild edges have dulled in the interim - "Steady Stare" bristles with angular energy as ear-snagging as it is individual. "Let Us In" is another fluttering techno piece with East Coast toughness balanced out by pattering psychedelia. "Mystic Strings" amps up the trippy synth lines in stunning fashion, and "Someday" takes things in a more brooding direction without losing that distinctive spark that makes Anderson such a marvel to behold.
Minimal/Tech House
Amadeo Savio is next up on Vigenere, the label that has thus far presented a whole host of unknown names in the field of minimal techno all bound together by a shared classiness in their production style. Savio's approach is deep and dubby on opening cut "Isolat", one primed for the after hours. "Trance Later" has a slightly more forthright approach, but there's still plenty of mellow delights to be found in the synth department to keep you chilling. "Encor" heads into more typically minimal pastures, while "Kassion" explores broken beat patterns and fragmented samples with scintillating results.
Electro
Relentlessly prolific Boris Bunnik brings his electro-focused Versalife alias to 20/20 Vision, a label which has been excelling at a renewed focus on the sounds of electro in recent years. The 808 beats are crisp and snapping, like they should in proper electro, but the synths shape out the atmosphere in brooding, dystopian strokes shot through with a certain mournful quality. It makes for engrossing, emotionally charged material perfect for the dancefloor as much as headphone reveries - just flip to the gorgeous "Aegis" and feel yourself drift away to somewhere mystical in the far reaches of the future.
Deep House
It's been a hot minute since Scott Boutin graced us with his refined strain of electronic disco, but the Roam Recordings main man is back on Whiskey Pickle with more of his shimmering dancefloor delights. The lead synths on "Road To Hana" are pure joy, twinkling and bright like a well-lit disco ball. "6AM Again" switches the focus to some bassier synth lines with a warm Moog-y feeling, and while the name might suggest this is a wind down jam, really this track feels perfect for a smooth warm up too. "We Met At The Sun" completes the set with a house-oriented slant that could sit next to warmer strains of acid as much as Metro Area-esque disco.

Last Eight Weeks

Techno
Not many people remember Lee Scratch Perry's foray into electronic music on the 1997 CD-only release "Technomajikal". It's a distinct diversion for the dub master from his more roots-minded experimentation, but still loaded with the same irreverent mischief and sonic acrobatics you'd expect from the Black Ark pioneer. Adeen have picked up on the quality elements hidden away in the album and given them a fresh airing, with some choice remixes to boot. Camille delivers a plentiful spread of versions, from the hypnotic incantations of her take on "Maxi Merlin" to the Latin heat of her version of "LSD UnitCorn". DJ Boring gets a little more technical on his remix of "Technologically", chopping up the samples and strapping them to a thumping house beat. It's as wild and mixed an end result as is fitting for a maverick like Lee Scratch Perry, the man promising to ride on his "unitcorn".
Ambient/Drone
Polish composer Olga Wojciechowska is a busy woman. While her releases have been limited, she's spent much of the last few years working on commissions for a variety of film, TV, contemporary dance and theatrical productions - including, rather surprisingly, a recent score for the Royal Opera House's production of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Medusa. "Infinite Distances" is just her second solo album as an artist and offers a neat summary of her distinctive style, which blends elements of contemporary classical, buzzing and crackling experimentalism, slowly shifting electronica and drowsy but picturesque ambient music. It's a blueprint that makes for hugely enjoyable listening, with her penchant for combining beautiful piano motifs and woozy, layered electronics coming to the fore.
Minimal/Tech House
The Botanic Minds Sunset Series maintains a lovely sense of mystery with its uncredited artists and rock solid concept - there's something mystical about that sunset dancefloor moment which all four tracks on this 12" capture perfectly. There's a little whiff of trance in the mix, but it's delivered in an elegant and poised context, offset by sleek house grooves and peppered with just the right amount of psychedelic sound design to send the mind spiraling skywards. After a day kicking up the dust on a sandy beach or sweaty terrace, this is just the balm you need to bring on the dusk.
Minimal/Tech House
Constant Black make it clear they're committed to the tradition of minimal tech house with this mean ol' monster from Bodeler & Saenz. "Blumpted" has some necessary rise and falls throughout its run time, but it's really about that unrelenting, unapologetic deep and heavy beatdown. The stuff marathon set dreams are made of. "Panash" has plenty of bump of its own, with a little more tweaking going on in the synth department, while "Hobbs" widens things out with a few more melodic components and some flecks of sound design trickery in the mix.
Techno
Lowless commence the "Confluence" compilation series in fine style with some subliminal trips through the deep techno landscape, guided by four accomplished travelers. Dycide's "Raijin" opens up the record with a brooding piece heavily tipped towards the low end and tastefully minimal in its execution. Daniel[i] has a little more bite in the rhythmic dynamics of "A Moment Of Confidence" while maintaining the subterranean mood of the release. Cyspe takes things slow and spacious on "Morning Revelations", a beautifully hazy rendition of the distant end of the dance, and Atomic Moog drops a more pronounced groove and spooked out pads over the aptly titled "Floating Motion" to round the record off nicely.
Minimal/Tech House
Constant Sound continues to press ahead as one of the most productive entities in the minimal scene, and they're sounding as on-point as ever with this collaborative EP from Per Hammar and Okain. These two stripped back tech house champs bounce off each other perfectly, creating the kind of limber workouts that will sink under the skin of the after hours crowd with ease. Look out for B2 track "Double Brew", which folds some gorgeous dub techno inflections into the mix with stunning results.
Minimal/Tech House
The first release of Default introduced us to emergent players in the minimal tech field such as Exander and Rojid, and they're at it again with the fresh faces on part two. Exander makes a welcome return on the B-side with the moody "Odyssey", but there's also sparkling new dubwise immersions from Camelia and crafty micro-disco from Macarie to lose yourself in. Lulla turns in one of the most interesting cuts on the record, using a densely packed rhythm section and a smattering of sample slices to create a dynamic club track full of inventive energy.
Minimal/Tech House
After launching the Depths Of My Soul label in 2018, Nat Wendell got snapped up by the ever-excellent Courtesy Of Balance for a follow up. Now he's back on his own turf with his third release, and sounding tighter than ever. "Reality" is a driving minimal house joint with drums in all the right places and a nagging chord line to latch onto. "Can't Stop" keeps things looped up just as much, precision engineering the music for the DJs and championing the sound of true tech house. "Renditions" completes the set with a more reduced mood offset by a subtly cheeky bassline and spaced out swirls aplenty.
Deep House
Eddie Fowlkes is back on his Detroit Wax label with more forthright jams that show off his distinctive approach to techno. As one of the originators of the sound, it's only logical he knows how to do this stuff properly. "Route 88" is a seductive, muscular piece with bold lead lines and a constant, driving rhythm section, while "Pass The Butter" takes a deeper route without losing the finely balanced and rich arrangement approach that his sound is built on. This is fully realised, classily executed Motor City machine soul from a man who helped define the culture.
Techno
Following marvelous turns from the likes of Perseus Traxx and Stephen Lopkin, Distant Worlds returns with this heavy slice of emotional synthwave from a strong cast of characters. Tagwell Woods heads up the pack with some lingering, poignant leads and tasteful 303 wriggles, before Castel drops some seriously wiggy trance-out sounds into the mix (all still very much on the sensitive tip, of course). Mihail P returns to Distant Worlds to open up the B-side with a slow, break fuelled funk and soul-stirring melancholy, before the always-excellent HOLOVR completes the set with a distinctive and delicate romp through finely sculpted electronica.
Balearic/Downtempo
Emotional Rescue dig out a quintessential private press curio and give it a tasteful 7" release that should tickle all lovers of blue-eyed soul with a subtle electronic kink. There's a smooth pop nous at the heart of "Passion", but also a naivety in the production that hints at the bedroom studio roots of 4AM's limited forays into recorded work. There's space for Fairlight-esque stabs and something approaching an acid bassline, but it's all framed in a mellifluous slice of melodious groove. "The Man I Feel" takes the A side and steers it into playful instrumental territory to great effect, the consummate 80s dub out.
Techno
Swedish outliers Frak have been on rampant form recently, channelling their 30-plus years of machine battering into material that stands up to demands of the contemporary scene with ease. "Starter Pack" is a muscular workout with a choice selection of gnarly synth lines, while "Congestion" has some wiggly filter sweeping and the off-kilter acid freakery you'd expect from the Scandinavian techno heroes. "Bruhn Agitation" takes things slower and meaner, leading you into a dungeon of deviant techno delights. Totally workable and yet still undeniably different, Frak continue to be a treasure for those who like their machine music rugged and raw.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Jakarta based producer Jonathan Kusuma has kept himself plenty busy running the space.rec and Akamady labels, not to mention releasing heavyweight curveballs on labels like CockTail d'Amore and Love On The Rocks. He's in fine fettle on this new drop for Homesick, delivering two reworks of unnamed jams that get twisted to his deviant disco vision with aplomb. "Strata" has a nervy energy with a subtle rave undercurrent and plenty of exotic frills on top that makes for a thrilling ride. "Why" has a more overtly synth-powered bombast, but it's no less brooding and seductive in its particular strain of dancefloor dynamism.
Bass
After a strong and distinctive run of outsider electronics from artists like Meze, Plants Army Revolver and Nicolo, HomeMadeZucchero founder Giesse steps up to the plate with a deadly concoction that uses breakneck drum programming to whip up a feeling somewhere between technical jungle and hyper-modern dubstep. Where "GOJI" is all sharp angles and bold sound design, the mighty Demdike Stare are on hand to deliver a remix that shirks convention (would you expect any less?) by barreling into a noise-caked tunnel of intensity that opens out into a fractured breakbeat meditation broken up with flamboyant handbrake turns to keep the dancers on their toes.
Deep House
Fresh from releasing his "Sagittarii" album on Bear Funk, the ever-prolific Ilija Rudman is back on his own label Imogen with two stellar remixes from the mighty Ron Trent. First up is the vocal mix of the track, keeping Andre Espeut's passionate voice front and centre around a classy cascade of pattering rhythm and swirling deeper than deep keys. On the flip you get treated to the Imogen Soundsystem edit of Trent's instrumental, which finds the track charting a course for the stars in the most delicate and elegant of ways. Truly life affirming, soul-soaked stuff.
Techno
Following sterling releases from NAP, Same Same and SMP, Isla are back with this smoking joint from I Believe. This is 90s flavoured techno with plenty of sass and sexiness rubbed into its joints - from the throbbing bassline to the steamy samples and subtle dubbiness, this is a late night cut geared towards beautiful, blurry hours of the dance. "Harumi's Groove" and "Outside Time" take things deep and spaced out, while "Red Planet" returns to a more driving, old-skool approach without losing that heady atmosphere. A strongly recommended tip for all those who like to incite passion at peak time.
Deep House
Jacksonville has skirted around deeper corners of the electronic music landscape for over 10 years, landing on labels as varied as Thug, Hizou Deep Rooted Music and Inner Shift. He returns to the latter with some of his most refined work to date, leading in with the snaking programming of broken beat immersion heater "Machines Of Loving Grace" before turning up the intensity with the spiritual uplift of hi-tech soul joint "Neptune 4". "Sebastopol Rd" takes things in a more explicitly house oriented direction, before "Fragment 7" beams back skywards for one more celestial trip around the sun.
Techno
Jaunt continue their 10 year celebrations with another strong cast of remixers taking their vision of techno even further out from the point of origin. Markus Suckut is up first, remixing AWOL with a blissful, almost Balearic leaning version that places piano chords front and centre. BNJMN takes on Artefakt's "Wanderings", digging it into the undergrowth for a gritty but submerged beatdown. Aubrey brings a little of his wildstyle charm to Luke Hess' "TDY", all bouncing drums, raining acid and delightfully wonky chords. Then Tripeo rounds things off with a boisterous take on Deep'a & Biri's "Pilgrim", using clattering drums and evocative atmospherics to create an epic trip.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Try as he might, Ray Mang can't hide behind an anagram as he drops this, his first LP in 10 years breaking in new imprint Keeps Going. While he's regularly dropping dancefloor gold in the disco-edit sphere, this record gives our man the chance to explore some more expansive sounds without losing that all important sense of groove. Take the dusty deep south boogie of "Revolver" or the shuffling, subliminal jazz funk delights of "Doh!" - these are jams that reach far beyond obvious dancefloor genres but they're rich in groove. As the saying goes, buy the ticket, take the ride and let Any Gram take you somewhere new.
Techno
After a great first release from NonniMal, Icelandic label Lahar is back with a new drop from Den Nard Husher, who was also recently spotted on US label Strobelight Network. The project is a collaboration between Octal Industries and Vector, and finds the pair conjuring up a limber strain of techno with industrial tones and textures but a more springy execution that makes it sound undeniably fresh. "Vector" is especially strong in this regard, while "Februar" juggles a smart array of wriggling rhythmic elements to create a highly technical club track with sound design and FX to get synapses firing all over the joint.
Funky/Club House
New label LDF clearly understands the need to make a big first impression, because this soul-flecked single from Angel-A and producer Rahaan - one of Chicago's true underground heroes - is a very impressive debut. Rahaan's A-side "Original Mix" is rhythmically tough and crunchy - think weighty drum machine kicks and snares - but also warm and woozy, with Angel-A's superb vocal rising above rich electric piano chords and jazzy synthesizer flourishes. Over on side B Karizma takes over, offering up a "Kaytronik Truth Dub" that wraps hypnotic, mangled electric piano notes, analogue bass and tech-tinged flourishes around a wonderfully locked-in but percussively lively rhythm track. It's very different to the original but exceptionally deep and floor-friendly.
Deep House
German percussionist Kolja Gerstenberg makes no attempt to hide his love for the drums on this razor sharp drop for Lumberjacks In Hell, building on his previous outings on Suol and Smile For A While. The drums are sizzling hot on "Feel Yo", tastefully overdriven and embellished with some MPC-style sample juggling that should satisfy those who like their house tracks hot as Dante's inferno. "Where They're From" is no slouch either, keeping the pressure up with a liberal dose of soul poured in for good measure. The keys and live bass on "Want You" add to the feverish mood, and then "Get Over" sends things spiraling out on a Latin-spiced cosmic journey.
Disco/Nu-Disco
UK producer Ian Thomas has a modest back catalogue aligning him with labels like Eskimo and Redux as well as leftfield disco house dons like Pete Herbert, and now he's back with this sure shot on new label Magic Bird. "Keep Doin' It" keeps the groove tight and heavy, using a spacious arrangement to give the rhythm section maximum impact and to make those chords sound all the sweeter when they kick in. "Schapelle's Boogie" takes a more cosmic, dubbed out approach without losing that synth-disco impact felt on the A side. "I Love U2" finishes the EP off with a jangly jam somewhere between shoegaze indie, 60s psych and Balearic goodness.
Minimal/Tech House
Having built up his self titled label alongside his sterling work as part of Oscillat, Lazare Hoche and Will & Ink, the one and only Malin Genie delivers his debut solo album. Moving beyond the pure club focus of his singles and EPs, the Genie has seized this opportunity to present a widescreen panorama of his sound, leading in with the subliminal ambience of "You" as a springboard to explore breaks, electro, techno, and especially IDM. There are so many ideas swirling round Anthropomorphic Sympathy, it's hard to know where to begin describing it. A true headphone commute for the deep listener to burrow into.
Minimal/Tech House
The sixth installment on Malin Genie's self-titled label welcomes Will & Ink resident Yaleesa Hall into the fold. Regular collaborators Malin and Yaleesa have turned out plenty of joint 12"s in the past on Will & Ink and this very label, and they sound more comfortable and sonically aligned than ever on this mighty record. There's no messing with "Alpha Decay," a loose and lysergic dubby techno workout. "Tachyon" orbits a similar soundworld, but shears the fat away for a minimal palette that sounds powerful echoing around the ample space in the mix. "Muck" slips into freaky after hours house territory, and "Stocha" drops a massive Basic Channel dub techno chord around a whisper of a beat to devastating effect.
Techno
Following an impressive debut on the excellent Pluie/Noir last year, Yuzo Iwata returns with a new 12" of leftfield goodies on Malin Genie's self-titled label. Preferring to span a variety of styles, Iwata glides gracefully from the dubbed out oddball techno of "Spoit" to the dubstep-inflected delicacy of "Mount Castle", all the while firing off tasteful splashes of FX and noise to create a vivid sonic imprint. "Tiger" is a switch in mood again, whipping up a distorted mutant acid-disco hybrid that defies easy categorization. "Touch" brings things back to a more linear groove, but there's still plenty of space for psychoactive experimentation atop the forthright beat.
Electro
Finnish electro maverick Mesak follows up crucial drops on Roots United and On Board Music with this refined slab of body-poppin' machine funk for Orson, hot on the heels of Carl Finlow's equally essential "Elastic Collisions EP". "Mihi" delivers the kind of starry-eyed style that should satisfy any Drexciya devotees, before the script gets flipped with the noisy nastiness of "Kuta". "Huru" on the B-side locks into a decidedly robotic workout with flecks of acid between the crunchy beats, and then "Okra" smooths things out with a plush, melodic trip geared towards the deeper end of the electro-fied dancefloor.
Deep House
French house vet DJ Freddy steps up on Politics Of Dancing with a surefire party starter with "Emergency Delivery". From the disco blips to the snappy vocal slices, it's everything a peak time belter should be, marking the seasoned producer's first trip out in nearly 10 years in style. Archie Hamilton steps up for a sophisticated remix that subtly dubs out the original, while the Politics Of Dancing crew turn in a version that strips everything back to the rhythm core with a mean acid rub tooled up for the deeper end of the dance.
Minimal/Tech House
Italian crew Unknown Collective come correct on this latest Purism joint as they drop some seriously bumping deep house heat to get bodies popping with approval. "Nodi" is the consummate A side jam, all exuberant energy and rock solid functionality, just like a DJs best friend should be. "Virgo" is, on the surface, a slinkier affair, but don't be fooled as there's some serious weight in that bassline which will absolutely rock on a proper soundsystem. "Arya" is the dreamier cut on the record - the groove is still solid, but there's a dreamy tone to the pad hovering in the background and the track is sprinkled with all kinds of extra sonic delights to toy with your mind at the hazy end of the dance.
Deep House
Lisbon-born, London-based producer Silvestre came to light on Disktopia before starting up the Padre Himalaya label to house his unconventional chuggers. This release for Secretsundaze finds him exploring his sound in greater detail, folding in a certain amount UK rave energy amongst other more esoteric motifs. The results are spellbinding, from the twilight marvels of "Lights" to the slow breakbeat chops and delirious harp trills of "Fuego". At times the ideas have a scuffed mixtape quality to them, which only adds to the charm. D.K. is on hand to deliver a remix for the broader needs of the dancefloor, although he wisely keeps the beguiling qualities of "Fuego" intact as he nudges it closer to the party.
Jazz
The Social Joy label has dropped a couple of low key, high grade jazz cuts from Guilhem Monin and Remi Mazet in the past few years. Now the label fires up after a couple of years silence with this gorgeous gathering of contemporary grooves from London-based band Natural Lateral. Tapping into the buoyant sound emanating out of enlightened clubs and studios in the UK capital, this promising outfit present the kind of instant, groove-oriented jazz that will have old heads and fresh faces nodding in approval. There's a Latin twist to their approach, not least on the oh-so-sweet "46 To Foulden", but there's also space for smoky, mellow moments on the likes of "Days With Amber".
Deep House
Super Tuff continues to forge ahead as one of the most vital outlets for true house music transmitting out of Brooklyn. Following releases from Marcel Lune and M. Vaughan, fast rising producer Niles Cooper steps up with a classic approach to deep house that sports personality to match its warmth. Lead track, "House Gospel," rides high on a soul stirring vocal lick, shuffled drums and a killer bassline, but watch out for the haunting, string-led breakdown because that's where the magic is at. Black Loops serves up a respectful remix that pumps up the rhythm section for a slightly tougher end result. "Floor Juuc" has a dusty, low slung, piano-led mood to it, while "If We Try We Can Start Anew" fires up some crusty breaks and pings them out into space.
Techno
Detroit maestro Gari Romalis is back on Sudd Wax after launching the label back in 2017, and he's got plenty of coal in the furnace as he cooks up a moody dub style on the killer "Windy Mix" of "Detroit Metro Terminal". The actual "dub mix" of the track takes things even further down into the depths of the subconscious, with a gorgeous chord drop underpinning the whole thing. "Land Of Oblivian" marks out its own space in the echo chamber, albeit with brighter drums on display, while the D1 mix of "I Stabb" makes the chords take on an extra resonant tone as they ping about in the sound bath.
Deep House
There's an undeniable air of quality that lingers over the 12"s emerging on 14th Level Of Paradise, the mysterious label presenting originals, edits and repressed tracks for true deep house/nudisco devotees. First up is a little known track from Pawel Kobak, given a shimmering polish to become a heavy disco funking masterpiece, before Adam Jace drops in a percussive dub delight on Dana Kelley (Callisto) "Manga". On the flip, Mateo & Matos get things pumping with the bumping chunky deep vocal classic "Joy 2 My Life", before Vincent Inc returns for another deep house killer as he remix chicago house legend Vincent Floyd "Economy of motion"

The Hong Kong based Homesick team are back with their yearly release of quality reworks that has made the label sought after since their first release back in 2014. For the 8th opus they're going back to their Disco roots and have worked with Cocktail D'Amore regular "Trent" for four edits that have been thoroughly tried on Asia's dance floors for the past two years.
UK Garage
With a previous release on Hokkaido Dance Club, the infamous "Soul Mass Transit System" is back with another fire EP, this time for the Rhythm 'N' Vibe faithfull. Underground garage music
Disco/Nu-Disco
Secretsundaze are proud to unleash the first release of a new re-edit series. The duo of James Priestley & Giles Smith offer up their own version of something close to their hearts whilst inviting some of their favourite artists to present a re-work of their choice.

For the first in the series, Secretsundaze head into deep, cosmic, spiritual territory reworking a version of Ghana Nila. Emanating from a Californian ashram towards the end of 2000s and never released on vinyl before, this heavily percussive, jazz organ, powerful choir and lead vocal number gets a subtle, positive, respectful and uplifting rework with just enough oomph for the floor.

NYC's Ge-ology steps up to re-flip a late-70s infectious uptempo party starting disco groover. Killing heavy flute soloing, sick strings and good times vocals get the Geo extended intro and DJ-friendly workout, as only he knows how. Originally a 4 minute album track this is a loving rework aimed purely to Stomp your Feet!

Represses

Techno
REPRESS ALERT: Background presents another dope classic by non other than Baby Ford. This record has been in high demand for almost 10 years now. Don't miss it as this will be gone quick.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: Needs is back with its fifth installment of charity-raising goodness from some seriously quality producers. This time the gauntlet is thrown down by the increasingly prolific DJ Normal 4, who wields some of his signature breakbeats over a cheeky synth that nods to Da Hool for a dark and deadly roller. Israeli duo Red Axes pop up fresh from outings on !K7 and Phantasy Sound for the worldly percussion and mystical atmosphere of "Treacksheni" before Bristol bass-wielding techno titan Hodge finishes the package off with the stunning, dramatic undulations of "Signal," making this a collection of tracks that all feed into the same vein of rhythmically adventurous, moody club music.
Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT!!: Funkyjaws is the Belarusian DJ and producer Sergey Abramov, who you might have previously spotted on Kolour LTD and Shadeleaf Music, often alongside Four Walls. Now a new start up label from St Petersburg has called on Abramov to inaugurate their imprint with his incredibly funky touch, leading in with the sweaty Afrobeat thump of "Ole Ole" and following up in fine style with the sprightly "Heavy Salsa Pushka Bassline", where salsa rips, rudeboy breaks and disco strut gleefully bounce off each other. "Untitled I" and "Untitled II" continue the West African trip with another two brilliant edit workouts with plenty of oomph where it counts.

REPRESS ALERT: Despite only a few releases, the electronic deep house sound of Vibraphone Records and the production team behind it, had a major impact on the international 1990's dance scene. The original 90's vinyl are now considered precious collectors items. Revitalized by an increasingly new young audience interest, this label has reached a cult status and it has now been re-launched via Juno Records. For the first time in twenty years TTUSR has produced three new exclusive tracks which will be included on this 12" EP entitled Liquid Time.
Electro
REPRESS ALERT: Carl Finlow is one of the great unsung heroes of British electronic music, with a raft of aliases and projects that burst with inventive production, warmth and a sense of fun that so much slickly produced techno and electro misses. For Those That Knoe are doing the right thing in gathering together some choice cuts from over the years - the Voice Stealer jams in particular stand out with their miscreant tones and overall uneasy atmosphere tapping into the malaise of the darker Drexciya-related output. There are all shades of electro to be enjoyed on here though, and hopefully it'll place Finlow on the radar for a few more heads.
Electro
REPRESS ALERT: Carl Finlow is something of a cult hero in the British electronic underground, having turned his hand to many aliases and styles without pandering to hype, and that's surely why the discerning For Those That Knoe label have deemed him worthy of a showcase release. His works as Silicon Scally are a particular highlight, channeling the seediest streams of Detroit electro and injecting a little of that UK verve and swagger into the mix, with invariably stunning results. Watch out for the seductive bite of "Dark Matter" and the dystopian funk of "Deep Dissolve", but in truth every selection on this choice double pack is worthy of some serious platter time.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: Derek Carr is a name known by few and far between, with only a handful of vinyl releases in the early 2000s, he built a worthy but unfortunately not widely-spread reputation for putting together stunning deep techno. Originally pressed in finite numbers, the records have recently found themselves in demand on Discogs, and rightly so, Derek's music is in a class of its own. Having been a big fan since his releases on then local (to label owner Ben) Leeds label Geek records, For Those That Knoe has dug deep into the archives to put together a sizeable selection of Derek's back catalogue, with some unreleased gems dotted amongst the classic must-haves, spread across three EPs

Part three in Derek's starts with Cuba, probably the most sought after track in his back catalogue. It's stunning simplicity and charming summer vibe puts it amongst Derek's greatest works and understandably so. Red then slots into the A2 position which was originally released under the radar on a Headspace compilation. As warm as Cuba but with an added touch of melancholy. Truly outstanding deep house.

Iceberg takes things back more into techno territory with a funked up bass line, stepping rhythms, Detroit strings and those trademark twinkly leads. Finally Penthouse Apartment 3AM a lush electro breakbeat track from the very hard to find Trident release, rounds off the EP with aplomb.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: Emerging slowly from understated beginnings, 'Running Into The Sun' sees Komodo deliver the kind of expansive tones that easily establish a vibe on the dancefloor, nodding to progressive house's fundamentals while borrowing plenty from earthier, more organic-sounding ends of the four-four scene. Eric Duncan does the business on the remix, taking it into tougher territory and throwing in a cacophony of drummy intersections that help build the atmosphere, placing the whole arrangement on a knife-edge. 'Slow Burning' does what it says on the tin, growing and grooving its way through spiralling synths and acidic inflections, adding some gentle chords to bring in some welcome melody. Latrec evidently has a different understanding of the phrase given his remix, cutting back to throbbing kick drums while allowing just enough of the harmony to enter earshot, with trance-like results.
Techno
REPRESS ALERT: In an age of over-information, it's refreshing to see Aurora Halal take her time with the Mutual Dreaming label, which notches up just its third release since launching in 2014. It's also the New York scene leader's first record in three years, and it's worth the wait. Some elements are familiar - Halal still has a keen instinct for heavy-hearted synth lines shaped out in bold curves, but the level of expression going into these tracks makes each one stand out like a striking painting. From the eerie mood of "Fattal 22" to the crunchy bleep workout "Nasty II", the character just oozes out of Halal's productions. With a remix from Wata Igarashi thrown into the mix as well, this is a record loaded with fresh and powerful takes on techno.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: After a strong opening bout, Chubby! steps back in the ring with more quality-assured deep house roundhouses from heavyweight prize fighters. Trinidadian Deep did such a fine job on the first Chubby! they've invited him back to unfurl a transcendent wooze of tumbling percussion and heady organ tones. Vincent Floyd steps up on remix duties, turning "Rebel Fract" into a more sharply rendered strutter buoyed by the original's radiant synths. Detroit don Javonntte drops in on the B side with the utterly classy "Jazzy Day", which funks and bumps with an unmistakable Motor City ruffness and some gorgeous melodic flexing over the top. Patrice Scott then steps in for a remix that finds the veteran producer wriggling into a stunning house shuffle with a piano line to die for.
Minimal/Tech House
REPRESS ALERT: Mandar are back on Oscillat Music following their stunning five-disc LP from last year, and the deep house super group are sounding as vital as ever. "String Theory" holds court over the A side and promises to be the soundtrack to many a heart-stirring moment under starry skies this summer. The titular strings are a powerful force in this track, bringing a classy brand of emotion to the slinky dancefloor tones Mandar are best known for. "Poisoned Worlds" is a deeper club cut that places the emphasis on crafty drum science for after hours crew, providing a neat balance to the show-stopping tones of the A side.
Coldwave/Synth
REPRESS ALERT: Having first stepped out on Scissor & Thread and Holding Hands, Desert Sound Colony now bring their full-fat, guitartronic sound to Snap, Crackle & Pop. "Lose My Rhythm" is a monster of a track with an acid backbone that would sit right on a Factory Floor release, garnished with garage guitar twang and new wave vocals. "Suffocation" is a more playful jam that doesn't slouch on the production either - DSC straddle song structures and dance dynamics with ease. "The Blacksmith" brings a more bludgeoning, broken rhythmic slant to the group and the impact is just as visceral. Then Scott Fraser steps up to remix "Lose My Rhythm" and turns it into a lithe club track for the late hours when reality has fully slipped away from the floor.
Minimal/Tech House
REPRESS ALERT: Hailing from Ibiza, Beeyou makes its first outing as a label with a strong selection of up and coming talent. Laidlaw is first on the scene with a crafty little minimal number that certainly sounds tailored to the up all night crew with its heady atmosphere, playful swing and micro samples. Ben Ulrich's "Bedun" is equally seductive, playing a trade in stripped down electro that shuns obvious dancefloor moves in favour of pure hypnotism. Kesh holds down the B side with two more maximal offerings that still align with the inventive, sleek aesthetics of the A side tracks. "Enebodiom" is a feel good jam without ever resorting to cheesy melodies or vocal touches - it's a jazzed out variation on positivity in house music. "We Love You Michael" completes the record with a quintessential skittering, swinging house cut that keeps the freakiness in abundance and the drums as funky as possible.
Techno
REPRESS ALERT: Not An Animal return with their 2nd installment, this time from Ess O Ess (aka Chris Stoker and Jamie Blanco).

Their original offering, Cantillate, isn't an easy beast to identify, being equal parts Swamp-Rock and Techno.
Imagine you've stumbled across an ephedrine and moonshine fueled rave in a deep Louisiana bayoux in the year 3000, and you're close. Add an out-there vocal refrain, and you'll start to appreciate why this is a particularly distinct record.

Relocate said rave to a some kind of Space Ship hitting hyperspace, with photon torpedoes fully armed, and you'll suddenly find yourself with the first remix, as created by Ene Records owner Chida.

Continuing the hybrid vibes, the final remix as provided by man of the moment "Suzanne Kraft" (yes, man), takes a juxtaposed tropical techno (with added dub) approach to his interpretation.

The overall effect of all 3 mixes is a pleasingly schizophrenic release which drips with multiple personalities.
Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT: As far as collaborative delights go, this really takes the cake. Miami boogie wildcard Noel Williams, aka King Sporty, throwing it down heavy with legendary Jamaican reggae axe man Ernest Ranglin - as you might expect, the results are incendiary. "Soft Touch" has a hint of the cosmic about it as it romps through insanely catchy chorus chants, stirring brass stabs and Ranglin's sweet licks. "Keep On Dancing" has a more uptempo feel, "In The Rain" slips into a laid back reggae skank and "Be What You Want To Be" turns the vintage disco heat back up. Throughout this wonderful mini LP, the duo switch between each other's strengths and bring out the best in each other, like all good collaborations should.
Coldwave/Synth
REPRESS ALERT: As well as being a resident at Moscow's Denis Simachev bar, Leonid Lipelis has been slowly making a name for himself as a producer for some time. There's a whole raft of Lipelis remixes for the nu-disco set dating back to 2006, but it feels like the Russian producer has stepped up his game of late. Inbetween some killer edits for LIES and an upcoming Public Possession 12" as TMO, Lipelis dons his Beard In Dust guise for the latest release from the mysterious Bahnsteig 23 label. If you were a fan of that aforementioned LIES release or any previous BAH 12 it's highly likely you will dig the four cuts here with Lipelis drawing for some obscure sources with eminently danceable results.
Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT: Italian producer Giovanni Damico (otherwise known as G-Machine or Ron Juan) has been busting out funkified gems for more than 10 years now, and his mighty back catalogue includes plenty of turns on Lumberjacks In Hell. He returns to the label with four crisp and refined slices of boogie business that span a range of tempos to give you plenty of party tackle for any situation. "The Sound Of Revolution" is a natural choice for the A1, dripping with cosmic synth flexes and an irresistible groove, while the snappily titled "Italians In A Line" brings a sweet strain of upfront robo-disco to the table.
Electro
REPRESS ALERT: Exzakt continues to forge one of the purest totems of classic electro with his Monotone label, and indeed his own output. The latest release is a various artists EP which perfectly sums up everything Monotone is about. The Advent leads the way with the dark, melodic "Eye's Of Envy," produced alongside Zein, before Exzakt himself drops a taut and wiry dancefloor bomb in the shape of "Kreep." 214 fires up the B side with the edgy, minimalist thrust of "Crouch & Turn," before EggFooYoung makes a surprise return to the fray with the more Miami-flavoured stylings of "Bass2Large," a slower, dirtier jam with low end frequencies to get the whole club freaking.
Funk
REPRESS ALERT: Emotional Rescue starts 2016 digging deep in to the early 80s Bristol post punk scene of Pig Pag, the Wild Bunch and the Dug Out club. A short lived project of just 3 releases, Mouth trail-blazed leftfield percussive jams in the rich vain of Liquid Liquid and ESG but in their own jazz-infused way. Centered round the cultural melting post of the St Paul's district, it's pubs, clubs and blues parties threw together young and old to the sounds of dub, funk, jazz and soul and took the spark lit by punk rock and new wave and spawned music that still resonates today. Here then, on one EP are their complete recordings, including as the title cut, their best and deepest, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. Featured on a compilation LP from the legendary Y Records, its bottom heavy dub sound is augmented by female and toasted vocals riding a top a heavy stepper style riddim. This is followed by an increasingly dizzy array of percussion jams. Acab (Part 2) is all skips and trumpets, while the versions of Take Your Coat Off perfect skat vocal / tom interplay, before the finale busts out the rockabilly influences in full effect with jagged guitar, skipping hats meets double bass punk style.
Coldwave/Synth
REPRESS ALERT: New label Platform 23 lands with a bang, delving into the mysterious world of 1980s cassette culture and in particular the Vox Man label run by French outfit Vox Populi, Axel Kyrou and Francis Man. This Alternative Funk: Vol 1 collection cherry picks from the various installments of Alternative Funk that Vox Man released in the mid 80s, presenting some vaguely familiar names and a whole lot of unknowns that fuelled a DIY scene brimming with creativity and lo-fi brilliance. On this first installment, get down to weirdo boogie of From Raushenberg, wig out to the psychedelic synth music of Scoop! and throw down to the drum-tastic madness of Fist of Facts. It's all old, and yet it feels so new.
Coldwave/Synth
REPRESS ALERT: The Alternative Funk series was a hidden weapon for obsessive collectors of 80s obscurities across the spectrum of new wave, minimal wave and other such cult movements in this most creative of eras. With Platform 23 having just dropped the first volume of reissued material from this deep cover collection, they're right back on the case with another 15 oddball gems for your delectation. Dee Nasty's "Orientic Groove" is as exotic and funky as it sounds, while 3M create a kind of nightmarish collage of noise, found sound, percussive lurch and a positively unhinged brass section. That gives you just some idea of the scope you can expect to enjoy on this welcome reissue.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: It's been a while since we saw a decent reissue of material relating to Psychick Warriors Of Gaia, and no doubt there's plenty of great material to mine out there. Thankfully Platform 23 are on hand and turning their attention to Robbert Heynen's work as Exquisite Corpse, which peaked in the early to mid-'90s. Drawing on a range of EPs from that time, Between Rhythms I is loaded with heady, psychedelic fare hovering in a liminal zone between primal techno, proto trance and something more mystical altogether. "Inner Rhythm (Higher World Mix)" is a prime candidate for wigged-out dance moves and eyes-closed reveries, while "Kupuri" takes things slower and deeper. "X-Out" is a minimalist, rugged, acid-flecked beast, and "Sitting In A Tree (Time Flies)" presents the kind of off-kilter techno you might expect to hear from Terrence Dixon.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: London's Default Position label has thus far released music by Sebastian Mullaert, Terry Francis and many more. Now El Choop and Tim Gee step up to the plate with two seriously deep immersions. Bristol-based producer El Choop has previously popped up on a tape release with Heavenchord and also released a solo 12" last year on Etui, while this single marks Tim Gee's first outing to date. The two sound utterly at home in the dub house furrow they're digging into, leading in with the cavernous echo chamber meditations of "Mitchell's Fold" before slipping into the slightly more energised "Fontaine Bleau." "Swelted" graces the B side with the most upfront set of drums on the record, while maintaining the shimmering elegance of the dub chords that permeate the other two tracks.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: Brawther is launching his new label Negentropy with a bang tidy offering from emergent London artist Ron Obvious, previously clocked on L.B. Produce and International Black amongst other esteemed underground labels. "Evidence Of" is a cool and deadly slice of tech house immersion that hinges on a firm kick and loses itself in a reverie of hazy pads. "Second Light" flips the script with a killer 2 step flex that should have all deep garage heads popping out moves in approval, like a housier take on the blueprint laid down by labels like Ghost.

Last week

Ambient/Drone
There's something rather heartwarming about the ongoing friendship and musical collaboration between Leandro Fresco & Rafael Anton Irisarri. Since beginning to work with each other a few years ago they've barely met, yet they're able to create sweet music together by swapping sounds, samples, sketches and processed instruments online. This second collaborative full-length excursion was therefore produced in two different places (their respective home cities of Buenos Aires and New York) simultaneously, with each musician working alone in response to the other's ideas. It makes the completed tracks - spellbinding ambient and drone tracks that are variously ghostly, ethereal, intimate, spacious, hushed and becalmed - even more remarkable. It shouldn't work, but it does - and then some. In other words, it could well be the first great ambient album of 2020.

Calypso is back with a new instalment of their world exploration in the search for new sounds. This time and with the help of Nicola Cruz they choose to showcase the city of Quito. In Nicola's own words: "From the highlands of the Equator, an eclectic sound develops in multiples forms: tension, gravity, drums...un-dusted elements from old records, retranslated to tape in order to revive the emotion. All the tracks in this compilation have been assembled through different experimental methods, as this is something that characterizes our creation around here. The work of FE, Quixosis, NTFL (from the city of Ibarra) and my self represent in this record some of the underground fields that this city offers". Indeed an experimental way to experience this city through the sounds of this 4 amazing producers.

Uniformity of Nature, the second release on Prague based Detach Recordings, marks an exciting collaboration between Romanian producer DYL (re:st, Alpha Cutauri, Skutta) and Germany's Senking (Raster Noton, Karaoke Kalk). DYL pushes the bounderies of his sound beyond his 170 roots, with the powerful electronics of 'Phrases' and the electrifying team-up with Senking on 'Destroyed City Lights'. Two tracks see DYL in the more familiar peripheries of D&B. The percussive 'Words', with its curious background atmospherics, and the driving, hypnotic collaboration with DB1 on the title track 'Uniformity of Nature'. 'Launch' sees Senking slow the tempo down and delve into a more murky space, yet still highly-charged with razor-sharp sound design. DYL closes the EP with the abstract 'Semantics', a further excursion into experimental electronics. The record comes housed in a screen-printed transparent sleeve, with a limited edition insert by Romanian artist Teodora Gavrila.
Deep House
Especial welcomes Kim Ann Foxman to debut on the label with an ode to the power of the moon. The sample heavy, acid vocal cuts no slack and shows Foxman confidently developing as a producer and is backed with a stellar set of remixes from Roza Terenzi, Dawl & Sween and Violet.

Revered by many as an on point clubber, dancer, singer, DJ and producer, her breakthrough in Hercules & Love Affair was a start, soon carving out her place as a solo artist and global DJ, while fitting in time to run the Firehouse - recently featuring Richard Sen and Kasra V - and SELF-TIMER labels - home to new project, Pleasure Planet.

As veteran of the San Francisco 90s heyday, slipping breaks around a 4/4 kick is a blast of past meets acid future, as 303 meets M1, while Foxman's lyrics - written during the Blood Moon over London - extols the power of the tides, nature's internal and external flow.

The remixes are a manner of breaks-heaven, as Roza Terenzi rips a steppas dub, Tone Dropout's Dawl and Sween master a latter day M25 anthem, before finally Violet, edits, strips, builds and takes things deep.

Make me lust, make me bleed.

For Those That Knoe kicks off a series of DJ-selected compilations featuring unearthed gems and tried and trusted belters. The first release in the series is provided by label owner Ben boe. Ben has dug deep into the racks to select two personal record box faves. Slaves Incorporated (Paul Rayner) released a short sequence of raw UK-styled garage music in the mid-ninetees on the label "To Groove To Records" out of the UK midlands. The pick of the bunch, "Baby", a peak time thumper with classic organ stabs and swooping subs graces the A-side. Tom Gillieron, perhaps only known to folk on the London scene has released some sought after tech house classics. Originally featuring on his first solo EP on Reverberations in 1998, "The Fire" is an impeccably produced deep breakbeat track for the heads.
Coldwave/Synth
Vox Populi!'s cult and highly sought after debut LP is finally reissued here after 30 years. Recorded after their first single - Ectoplasmies (1983) - between 1984 and 1985, the original band of Mitra and her (then) 14 year old brother Arash and Axel Kyrou, evolved from 2 early cassettes and the 7"s' rudimentary, idiosyncratic and improvisational structures to more cohesive edges.

Living together, but with no formal music education, the nature of the disparate elements led to a sparseness of the recordings. Influenced by his mother, the concrete music pioneer, Mireille Kyrou and her work at GRM (State Institute for Musical Research), Axel challenged his creativity by utilising their Vox Man studio as an instrument.

Building on minimal synth, rhythm box, hand percussion and Persian poetry, they experimented with tape manipulation - layering the music with forward, backward and echo simultaneously - creating a leap in the band's development.

The dark nature Myscitismes was reflected in their increasing interest in industrial and ethnic music, with a great fascination for the religious traditional music of Tibet. Ceremonial, gothic, drone-folk, the progression is apparent; onward perceptions.

All producers on this timeless EP known for their contribution to NuDisco/Deep House Music. 1 Life records has enlisted the services of top talents. Deep house veterans Mateo & Matos wrap drifting deep spheres, lilting electronics & warm synth rhodes chords around a chunky groove on his fine beat interpretation for a brighter & breezier deep house vibe on a remix that benefits greatly from a squeezable synth bassline & some undulating TB-303 style acid motifs, while Rune Lindbaek deliver with Frisvold a driving chunk of dub-disco/deep house fusion rich in sparkling synthesizer lines, sun-kissed chords & his own rubbery post-punk bass. Studio don Vincent Inc bring unforgettable impressions & inspiration for mind, body & soul together with his remix. 4 tracks came together to tell music stories about hypnotic deepest stuff, depression, happiness, loneliness, love, miracles & magical experiences

Minimal/Tech House
The latest transmission on Aesthetic comes from Nolga, previously spotted alongside Michael James on the Hoarder label. The sound on this record is pure, classy minimal house executed with a fine ear for detail, leading in with the deep tracking "34100" before locking into the equally immersive "XYZ". The shuffle is strong on this 12", keeping up on the flip with the subtly dubby, utterly funky "Line Of Questioning" before launching into the crafty, bouncy tones of "Shelter". Immaculately produced with maximum body response in mind, this is another strong outing for Aesthetic and a promising next step for a highly promising producer.
Minimal/Tech House
The funking, bumping sound of Aesthetic continues to bolster the impact of parent label Constant Sound, bringing a more colourful palette to realm of minimal tech house. The latest Aesthetic release comes from emergent talents Josh Baker & Alfa, working in collaboration to summon up some sprightly grooves to put a spring in your step. "Formulate" is especially bouncy, not least thanks to those nimble synth lines, while "No 800" takes things in a tougher direction without losing that groovy swing and rich sense of melody. "Exteria" completes the set with a particularly funky concoction that heads towards the deeper end of the night.
Minimal/Tech House
Russian producer Swoy has been spotted alongside Djebali in the past, so you know this cat means business when it comes to minimal house. Recent releases on EWax and OGE have set the scene perfectly for this latest trip into the undergrowth on Aesthetic. "Sunrise" is a heads down groover with subtle threads of melody scattered throughout, while "Imagine" ups the wriggling sound design and threads a lighter mood through the middle distance of the track. "Voltage" drops things back to a loopy, techy sound, and then "Time" drifts into dreamier headspace without sacrificing the crafty little production flairs that make Swoy a standout artist.

Really love this album. This is probably some of Malcolm's best works, although it's hard to decipher as we like nearly everything he writes. As an album, it sounds like he's put everything he has into it, full of emotion and diversity. It's hard to say which track is our favorite but we are torn between Faithful Fearful and Regrets. Keep up the good work Malcolm as this is a masterpiece. Anyone who sleeps is missing out.

2nd Archivators records release embraces the charms of nudisco & uplifting deep house. Julian Sanza steps up first with Vincent Inc, delivering a driving chunk of dub-disco/deep house fusion rich in sparkling synthesizer lines, sun-kissed chords and his own rubbery post-punk bass. Nigel Hayes is probably best known for his collaboration with Funk D'Void as Chaser, but as "Jabawaki" demonstrates, his solo work is just as impressive. It sees the UK producer move into sleek, pulsating deep afro latin grooves with modulated delayed space jazzy roads & double bass. DJ EFX aka Raul Recinos one of the most respected deep house producers since 1987. He did best releases for label Strictly Rhythm and worked with producers like Aquatherium, Mateo & Matos, DJ Rasoul, Aural Imbalance and many more. Archivators records proud present his spiritual house track Gravity. EP bring unforgettable impressions & inspiration for mind, body & soul. 4 tracks came together to tell music stories about hypnotic deepest stuff, depression, happiness, loneliness, love, miracles and magical experiences.

Adeen Records and it's partnership with Red Light Bangkok are bringing you the funky sounds of Scott Hess. Hailing from Detroit, Michigan With time being spent living in Shanghai and Berlin now residing in Bangkok, 'Red Light Bangkok 01'. The 3 track EP was forged out of the thick haze of Thai funk that permeates the vivid colours of this city. From the low-slung freakiness of 'The Rhythm', to the subtly sinister, synth-heavy groove of 'Circle Of Funk', and all the way through to peak-time, jacking house of 'Red Light' - each track is fused with Michigan flavour and South-East Asian steam in almost equal measure.

Nigel Hayes is probably best known for his collaboration with Funk D'Void as Chaser, but as Stop demonstrates, his solo work is just as impressive. It sees the UK producer move from the cinematic ambience into sleek, pulsating deep grooves. UK's Jack Bowditch has been moving through the dance music circuit over the years now and has found himself with a new alter ego in Collate. He teams up with established Romanian producers Balaur for the riveting deep classic Spinnin Voices on Astrolife. B-side opener DJ Rocca presents a nudisco odyssey into misty lands of shuffly beats, incessant basslines. Studio don Vincent Inc always bring unforgettable impressions & inspiration for mind, body & soul. 4 tracks came together to tell music stories about hypnotic deepest stuff, depression, happiness, loneliness, love, miracles and magical experiences. And now we're asking other's to join the sound conversation.

Frits Caroe, AKA Popmix, unleashes some fascinating sounds on his debut release, which should score with discerning listeners looking for those tracks that standout without making a scene. Occupying somewhere between deep house, IDM, slo-mo and techno, there's mass appeal here but with niche noises. 'Funtema' has one of those wasp-in-jar synth lines that threaten to drive you crazy, or at least send the dancefloor into a frenzy, but avoids all intensity, balancing things out with playful keyboards and expansive refrains. 'Klub Frimis' is more of a plodder, its stabbing low end and twisted glockenspiel chords inviting everyone to get stuck in. Closing out on 'Teenage Club Fantasy', a sparse, low tempo acid-inflected epic that never veers from the course it's sets out on, you can have a lot of fun with what's here.
Deep House
We are proud to present another debut on Axces Records, this time from label head Alfredo92. The A side kicks off with Mimis, an explorative bass driven track with crisp snares and bubbling synthesizers. Next up is the title track Helfand, whose experimental sounds and textures take things in a mystic IDM like direction. On the B side we Adax_pcp, a hypnotic club cut which further explores complex pulsating outernational rhythms. Finally to seal the deal we have Scalex, a twisted dancehall tune with splashes of futuristic sound design.
UK Garage
4 track UKG E.P from Crazy Bank which includes a remix from the 2-step master DJ Perception,fresh from releases on DPR,Moodswing,DR Banana and Rhythm N Vibe.Also features a Garagehouse remix from Beforethebeatsbreak and a Crazy Bank 2-step dub from the former Locked On artist.
Electro
Latvia's Blind Allies continues its series of crucial various artist trips into the underbelly of ravey electro, with another cast of underground operators on the buttons. RNBWS brings a hefty dose of old-skool bleep magic to "Engage", before stripping things back for the cool and deadly "Backtrack". Caprithy's "Smoky Sunday" has a seductively sinister side to it, while CYBEREIGN's "Accelerate" keeps things tuff and taut. RNBWS returns on the tripped out "Little Things Important", and Universo completes the set with the vintage tape-warped tones of "Mercury Retrograde".

Star of the show is Slovenian electro legend Zeta Reticula aka Umek.
Techno
Traditionally, Darko Esser's outings as Tripeo have tended towards the hypnotic and trance inducing. It's notable, then, that his latest EP - the first Tripeo 12-inch for 18 months - mixes things up a little. "Food For Thought", for example, fixes melancholic, Convextion style musicality to crunchy, EBM-influenced techno drums, while the fuzzy, dirt-encrusted "Resist" sees the producer give deep electro an angular, lo-fi makeover. "Tuesday Blues", meanwhile, sees him stack layer upon layer of positive electronic melodies atop rubbery, Afro-house influenced techno drums before Bassiani/Horoom resident HVL rounds things off with his skittish, breakbeat-powered revision of "Food For Thought", which sounds like a giddy blast from the past despite the poignant nature of Esser's melodies.
Techno
The latest record from Georgia's Bassiani label comes from L.I.E.S. veteran Voiski. True to the label (and club)'s style, it's a release that celebrates interesting, bold expressions within the realm of techno. "Chasing Shadows" is certainly a track with the kind of freaked out atmosphere that you also heard on the recent HVL album, admittedly with an extra dose of edgy synth working its way through the core. Whether it's high speed tripping or dubby incantations, Voiski brings vitality and character to the well-worn realm of deep techno.
Minimal/Tech House
BEEYOU Records are back with 4 outrageously groovy tracks perfect for all your dance floor needs. First up on the A1 is Julian Anthony with a 90s Tech House inspired banger. Rossi. has full control of the A2 with his signature groovy basslines that keep you dancing all night. Azire who is one half of Xhz shows us what's real with a hypnotic roller, and Xhz are back with another beautiful track full of sexy french vocals and dreamy pads.
Drum And Bass
Nodding to the days of widespread dance anonymity, where the focus was firmly placed on the music rather than reputations and brand hype, Bring Back's fourth release is soaked in hardcore and jungle tones in keeping with both the mysterious artist tip and the label's name. Basically music to make you sweat. 'Night Selector' is perhaps the least rave-y of the lot, and that's saying something considering its stretched amens and mysterious, futurist ambience. 'Light In Ghetto' throws itself fully into the revivalist movement, beautiful female lyrics and pitched vocal cuts crying out over a rhythm section that's stripped enough to make room for choppy, distorted keys. 'Lobster', meanwhile, plays with time signatures, paying respect to the roots of these sounds- dub and soundystem culture- in between full-throttle nastiness.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Following killer releases from lesser-known talents like Aristidez, Colossio and Thomass Jackson, Mexico's premier modern disco label Calypso commence a new project that sees them celebrating some of their favourite cities around the world. The journey starts in Tel Aviv, where a range of underground producers present the kind of freaky disco-not-disco sounds that get dancefloors frisky the world over these days. Niv Ast keeps things simmering and sensuous on "Rainey Heart," while Rina gets locked into a dense chug of sweaty sonics and solid rhythms. Naduve has a slower, percussion-led groove rolling on "Hex Mex" that will inject spice into any adventurous warm-up, and Middle Sky Boom finishes the record off with the tense and teasing "Marble Arch".
Disco/Nu-Disco
Dance music veteran Richard Sen has a 30 year history of DJing and production. The respected global DJ has produced and remixed many well-known artists including Bryan Ferry, John Grant and LCD Soundsystem. From the late 90s to the early 2010s Sen was one half of the dance music duos, Padded Cell and Bronx Dogs. This is the first release on his own label which aims to explore the beauty of the night - dark and light, combining influences from black American dance music and European electronic music.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Cardiology came to light earlier this year with a sure shot from Yann Polewka, and now returns with more upfront disco house delights courtesy of Julio Cruz. Title track "What Is It About U" is a heart-stirring peak time pumper that matches disco romanticism with a forthright rhythm section, while "No One" gets a little more looped up without losing that heavy dose of soul. "Honey" keeps things cyclical and strutting - a perfect edit-heavy workout for the heat of the night. "Be Around" takes things deeper, shedding the disco tones for a more techy flavour that still matches with the upfront mood on the rest of the record.
Disco/Nu-Disco
The sweet and funky side of the Constant Sound empire is back for a third bout. Cardiology deals in the finest disco edits and deep house delights for soul-centric groovers, and so it continues with this sure-footed 12" from The Owl. "Soul on Fire" is an appropriate title for the lead track, which keeps the vibe sizzling throughout with a strictly managed dose of Philly disco magic. "Universal Funk" takes things more upfront, but still those drops hold just enough back to keep the track utterly cool. "Funk Town" gets wild on the filter with the core sample hook before dropping some sassy bass and bongo heat at the track's apex. "Concrete Soul" completes the picture with a wistful choice in samples and the nastiest b-line on the whole record.
Techno
Salford's Cong Burn drop the latest in their ongoing 12" series feating entries from regulars Chekov, Perfume Advert & Lack, with newcomer Tonto making their debut. At A1 Lack provides a low key roller subtely flashing glimpses of their studio sleight of hand and their ability to craft rhythms with real momentum. Tonto's 'Rust' slows things down with a sub 110bpm DJ tool that pings splashy springs, bird calls and ascending sine tones - made for long blends and layering! Leeds' own Chekov continues to intricately weave interlocking melodies in their most finely sculpted effort to date - with some Idiots Are Winning indications which are more than welcome. Salford/Teeside's Perfume Advert wear their heart on their sleeve for an emotional 130bpm+ closer.

CB012 comes from a big talent Niko Maxen, 4 killer tracks here.
Deep House
The mightily talented Berlin beatsmith Nick Beringer comes to Constant Black with the kind of rigourous grooves that have found favour with labels like Skylax, MyHouse YourHouse and Raum...musik. Beringer's sound is a perfect fit for Constant Sound's deeper cousin, matching crafty sound design and razor sharp sequencing with that all-important minimal tech house groove. Things get playful and freaky on "Noseblunt" and decidedly uptempo and techy on the club mix of "Turning Point", but throughout Beringer's sharp sense of tension and release, not to mention his ear-snagging sound design, bind these four deadly cuts together as one immensely satisfying package.
Deep House
The latest joint on Constant Black is from Subb-an and Thoma Bulwer, who work together to bring forth some seriously smart ruminations on minimal techno with an inventive modern edge. "Apollo Sun" holds court over the A side with an artful, modulating synth voice that sounds as though it could well have been cooked up through a tangled network of patch leads. On the B side, "Cosmic Breaks" has a strong set of drums that crunch in all the right places, and plenty of dreamy seasoning to make for a truly smart midtempo roller. "Spray" completes the set with the spiciest joint on the record, all tightly wound beats and nagging rhythmic wriggles both built for functionality but equally intriguing on the ear - a perfect DJ tool with enough sass to stand on its own.
Deep House
Just four releases into its life, London imprint Counterfeit Soul has managed to draft in some serious pedigree for this one, with bossman Frazer Campbell leading the charge via the gloriously heady heights of 'Cloud 909'. Shades of soulful Detroit more than a little audible, it's a warm and uplifting opening number. Logically, given its name, 'Doom Dub' from Jorge Zamacona is a stark contrast in terms of vibe. Less delicate, much more direct and relentless- barely letting up- it's an ever-growing and more than likely ever-green slice of what deep techiness should sound like from the legendary producer. Those looking for more of a Windy City tip can find plenty of Chicago influences on Jorge Caiado's 'Drifting With Aliens', while Ste Roberts goes raw, unpolished and compulsively danceable for 'Last Saturday Day!'

Joe Corti has had a breakthrough 12 months, with releases landing on Better Listen and his own China White. Bringing more of that sweet, disco tinged house music to the second volume on his label, Corti strikes a heady mood on "Move Your Seat" with a mixture of swirling Philly string samples and looped up elements that should set the dancefloor alight in that most tender of ways. "Think Twice" is on a similar tip, albeit with a choice run of dreamy trumpet coursing through the track. "Just You" has a slightly techier edge, but it's embellished with the kind of keys that will appeal to fans of Glenn Underground. Classy stuff from a rising talent.
Funky/Club House
Joe Corti returns to China White with a two track EP featuring heavily supported track "You!" on the b side is "If I Could" a deep house party starter guarenteed to work many floors.

After a long summer break, Deep Explorer is back to the game with the "Space Space EP" by .MAHAL. For this project we call 'the joint venture', we are teaming up alongside our brothers and sisters from Inner Shift Music. This collaboration starts with the first 12" which will land on Deep Explorer and ends with the second 12" on Inner Shift Music. .Mahal. is a Japanese producer and dj that grew up surrounded by the healthy mixture of hiphop, house, jazz, rock and other eclectic sounds. Much of this music was played by his favourite radio show on NHK-FM, when he was a teenager. He began playing music at age 18, as guitar player in a noise band. Not long after, he started buying more music and became a dj, which quickly led to producing his own beats. His first official release was with Rough House Rosie. The "Space Space Ep part 01" contains 2 original tracks that dive into deep house and acid techno beats. It includes remixes by the mysterious Man-drake, taking one of the originals into the downtempo zone. Following that is the Brad P remix, which gives an alternate deep and atmospheric sound to the original, and Rai Scott closing the EP with an ambient reshape of an inedit track by .Mahal.

The label is delighted to welcome Kris Baha with his first 12" for Especial. After killer remixes of Sfire and Red Axes for the label, his name as an artist, with his darker take on dance music, has risen and risen.

With releases on Bahnsteig 23, CockTail d'Amore and Pinkman, Baha has become a respected artist in just a few years. Building analogue equipped studios in Melbourne and Berlin, DJing, producing and mixing have all led to atonal ear, where success came through dedication.

Following his debut album Palais, Barely Alive acts as release from these years of sweat. A call to all in this modern world, the song exemplifies a move from club music to a freedom in sound and song, as vox crash against 808 and Arp 2600. Remixes start with Timothy J Fairplay a name synonymous with Especial. Here TJF laces his trademark echoplexxed wash for a cold wave mover. Next prodigy Job Sifre builds on his acclaimed debuts with a remodel that goes straight to 'that' basement, mixing his love of electro, new wave and industrial. To close, the legend of Das Ding creates a re-alternate remix, fusing his unique fuzz with Baha's ode for a brittle finale.
Electro
After the release on Helena Hauff's label Return To Disorder earlier this year, the Hamburg based producer turns to Eye For An Eye to release his awaited EP "Zerstore Eine Stadt". A well crafted piece divided in 5 different moments that portrait the mind state of L.F.T. living in an industrial city with mechanical and optimized routines. Sharing the A side is the punchy and muscular "Alles Was Du Hasst "and "Atomic Enigma", the last an introspective and misterious slow tempo ebm-ish piece. "Zersto?re Eine Stadt" featuring vocals from Rosaceae is an emotive piece expressed through distortion pedals, revealing the poetic side of rage and trauma. "I Don't Like Your Party" plays around a playfully sinister melody and charmingly offbeat vocals that give this track a unique groove. "Dead Rat Under The Table" cools the whole EP down, ending it as intense and mesmerazing as it started.

In 2000 Billy Nasty launched Electrix Records as an Electro sub-division of his already successful Techno label, Tortured. Since its first of many releases by Zeta Reticula (the - at that time - brand new Electro pseudonym of Umek), Electrix has gone on to deliver quality releases from the likes of Carl Finlow / Silicon Scally, The Advent, RadioNasty (Billy's collaboration with the mighty Radioactive Man), Transparent Sound, dynArec, Mr Velcro Fastener (a.k.a. Mesak) and many more. Launching its 20th anniversary year is none other than London Modular with the 'We Are The Mod!' EP featuring 3 new original cuts plus a remix by Assembler Code.We are the mods, we are the mods, we are, we are, we are the mods!
Punk/Hardcore
The third in the releases where label favourites are represented for today and backed with a remix / version by a contemporary producer of repute, presents 80s leftfield pop-rock band In Embrace. Appearing here are two versions of The Living Daylights, the original long version and a re-recorded live take, plus additional versions by Timothy J Fairplay.

Coming out of the midlands Post Punk / fanzine scene Gary Knight and friends formed the original incarnation of In Embrace in 1981. Picked up by Glass Records, the early, edgy live recording were re-proposed as Knight developed his 'non-musicianship' with an interest in the possibilities of the studio.

The original "Uncut" version takes it's anti-war themed vocal and lays it over a Jah Wobble inspired bassline and tense electronic rhythm. As it builds, the pressure mounts a visceral sense of oblivion of 9+ minutes of deep dubbing and repeating refrain.

Next to this the "Live In Studio" version sees the later 3 piece band replay it out in an energetic raw form that makes a worth addition. Handing the versions, plus backing tracks to Timothy J Fairplay offered a radical departure. His brooding Redub and Bonus mixes take the track to a darker place, drawing out the induced, relentless madness Knight always intended.
Ambient/Drone
Emotional Rescue reissue 'Into Dark Water', the second album from UK post-industrial ambient pioneers O Yuki Conjugate (OYC).

The willfully obscure OYC formed in Nottingham in 1982 and have had a
sporadic career on the outskirts of musical culture ever since. Initially associated with the early 80s post-industrial scene - along with Soviet France and Muslimgauze - OYC quietly forged their own brand of ambient music at a time when it was distinctly unfashionable to do so.

Always reluctant to categorise their sounds, OYC have been variously described as post-industrial, ambient, darkwave, tribal ambient, chill out, electronica and Fourth World. Take your pick.

'Into Dark Water' was recorded in 1986 over four days in an eight-track garage studio in Nottingham. Produced and engineered by John Kaukis, the result was a blend of flutes, percussion, electronics and loops that focused their sound and became for many the definitive OYC album.

Originally released in 1987 on the Leeds-based Final Image label, 'Into Dark Water' quickly sold out and has been highly sought after ever since. The re-issue, featuring a lovingly recreated sleeve, makes a vinyl version of this classic available again for the first time in over 30 years.
Balearic/Downtempo
Emotional Rescue presents the music ensemble Man Jumping, with a reissue of their experimental, post-minimalist meets pop debut album Jumpcut, to be followed by 2 special remix EPs featuring Khidja, Bullion, Reckonrong and more.

Formed in 1983 out of the disbanded The Lost Jockey (Les Disques Du Crepuscule), Man Jumping's aim was to move on from the unwieldy nature of that collective to combine the 'systems music' of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, LaMonte Young etc with rock, funk, dance and world music and create a new cross over.

Consisting of studied musicians and created from theory as well as technique, the liberation from formal restrictions took shape over four years that spawned 2 albums and one 12".

Released on Bill Nelson's 'Cocteau' label in 1985, Jumpcut's was critically praised but destined for more discerning ears. The 7 songs - including here a 12" mix of Aerotropics - developed from 16 stave manuscript into live recordings straight to tape, with no sequencing to keep their live feel intact.

Carefully planned but made in the moment, members Charlie Seaward, Glyn Perrin, John Lunn, Orlando Gough and Shaung Tozer's legacy is demonstrably durable, a testament to their originality of thought to an idea of what might be rather than an imitation of what has been.
Balearic/Downtempo
To accompany the reissue of Man Jumping's Jumpcut album, Emotional Rescue offers 2 remix EPs that showcase the band's music with versions by contemporary producers.

Starting with stalwarts and friends in duo Khidja, it's not often you can put together a reissue that modern day wunder producers have requested, however, that is precisely what occurred. Badgering over several years about their love of Man Jumping and how they should be revered, when the call came that the reissue was happening, Khidja were the first names down.

After breaking through on sister label [Emotional] Especial way back in 2013, the pair have gone on to much acclaim with releases for Malka Tuti, Hivern Discs and DFA to name (drop) a few.

Handed the tapes, their love of Man Jumping's virtuoso playing is evident in these amazing remixes. Walk On, Bye takes its Reich meets Pop aspirations and drifting across 9 minutes of laidback but bass heavy rhythms, intricacies of clarinet, sax and trumpet are stretched and fused to repetition perfection.

Following, Down The Locale's jazz roots is developed, recast and updated, extenuating the bass, while piano and vocals interplay over scattered, skipping drums to become a latter day 'contemporary dance' odyssey.
Balearic/Downtempo
The second EP of remixes from Man Jumping's reissue on Emotional Rescue features luminaries Bullion, Reckonwrong, Gengahr and William Doyle with their reversions of songs from the Jumpcut album.

Nathan Jenkins aka Bullion follows his recent rerub of Thomas Leer (ERC072) to provide two remixes. His remake of In The Jungle keeps the originals (leftfield) dance floor roots, but sprinkles the ubiquitous warm glow and off kilter fun(k) that he evokes; while his retake of Walk On, Bye drifts back, highlighting intricate percussion; congas, bass and vocal atmospherics along some breezy swing.

Reckonwrong is next; turning the bossa vibes of Sqeezi into his own new wave meets italo reversion; topped with his unique 'under the cupboard stairs' vocals. Funky, driving, this overlooked star adds to his cannon for Whities, Pinkman and DEEK.

After a string of impressive releases for Trangressive / Beggars, Gengahr make a surprise addition, lifting Down The Locale from deceptive beginnings to anthemic heights, adding echo-laden guitar and vocals to the original's underbelly, before a bass break and return lifts to the heavens.

Finally, William Doyle provides perfect closure. Moving away from his East India Youth moniker (XL Recordings), his output has drifted towards ambient introspection, however, here points to addtional layers; rebuilding Belle Dux On The Beach with added bass, guitar, drums and finally vocals that culminate in a prefect 'to the skies' outrospection.
Balearic/Downtempo
For the second Riddims EP, collating the music of The New Morning, the label highlights further how a group based around the southern Germany Afro-Cosmic scene created a melange of music, a sound, that stepped wide of the house and techno movement then sweeping Europe.

In Global Rhythm Records, friends and producers, DJ Otti and Jay Pee, alongside DJ Thilo and DJ Fred, represented Munich "Westside", running parties and across just 11 self distributed releases, carved their own eclectic niche that were being played by the likes of scene DJs Stefan Egger and Enne.

Slowed afro-percussion, Brazilian flavours, elements of ethno folk, flighty wood instruments, trance overtures, shamanic voices and more are pieced together via heavy sample use in an early hip hop mastermix style.

Again with no track lasting much over 4 minutes, these musical vignettes are perfect tools for the eclectic DJ. Covering uplifting - almost Balearic grooves - to deeper mind-inducing spellbinds and to darker corners of trippy psychedelic invocation, this is The New Morning experience.
Balearic/Downtempo
The final 6 track reissue EP of Munich's mid-90s Afro-Cosmic project, The New Morning, completes the archival while expanding their sound of heavy African / Brazilian influenced sampling and percussion to include Balearic, House and Trance.

Again a trip to the Cosmic wonderlands of Global Rhythm Records, Riddims 3 brings this collection of DJ Otti and Jay Pee's, plus support from DJ Thilo and DJ Fred, vision to a close.

More eclectic than cohorts like Tribal Italia out of Cesana or Stefan Eggers' Sound Station Records, The New Morning enwraps world beat music for the eclectic, post-hippie generation. Monotonous beats, deep bass, memorable melodies, sampled in a tribal mystic.

Included here, the previously unreleased Kongo Bina points to a fuller sound, where heavy samples are overridden by analogue machines. As found across the 3 EPs, the collage of sounds, laced with live percussion, make the party.

From the weekly gatherings across north Italy into Austrian and on to Munich, some twenties years pass but the journey from the original Cosmic club to now fits. Time for an "Afro Funky" discovery.
Techno
After the success of the 2 Late 4 Love EP, Roy Of The Ravers returns to Emotional Response with a double LP with a deeper perspective, experimenting in ambient and drone textures, lucid techno travails and acid interludes.
Recorded between 1997 and 2017, the album was pieced together over the last six months after Roy's archives were first feared lost and then found. Approached by the label to release a follow up with something more introspective and personal, it was discovered that a recent move to a new studio had led to over 20 years of music being misplaced after it was believed they were mistakenly dropped at a local charity store. However, deep in a box of what were thought to be patch cables were in fact the decades worth of hard drives and here presented, is a sample of those lost recordings.
The nature of the music is introspection, eschewing the acid beats and white noise for a personal encounter between man and machine. The orchestral opening of the title track gives way to the submarine beats, pulsing TB303 and gliding hats of Robinson College 10 to set the outlook to come. Even with the scattering A Dim And Distant Past waking lulled senses, the melodies and feel all lead to a pause and reflect rather than jump and shout.
This is continued with the haunting drives of Bounce Erec and Oriental X0X-Press; the twisted, warped jams of The Weber Traum Boat Pt.3, Ichi and Roland Corp Labs 05; and the beautiful, heartfelt odes in Sade Lost Theme, The Clock House Pt.2 and closer, Nemesis '01. The album's melodic nature hums and shines as CS (6x8) appears as much a centre piece as a alternative consideration to the acid tinged, club bangs of Roy's releases to date.
A surprise package maybe, but in the rolling, word of mouth phenomena that was Emotinium II, all this and more was sensed and so White Line Sunrise II, spreading across 12 songs of contrasting moods, is a further affirmation that there is something good and worthy of exploration
Experimental/Electronic
Emotional Response is delighted to present a special project, a collection of music from Bartosz Kruczynski, recorded for "Selected Media" and presented here as a time-piece of his continuing works.

Initially known as one half of sample based project Ptaki (The Very Polish Cut Outs / Transatlantyk), Kruczynski first appeared for Emotional Response as The Phantom for the first series of SchleiBen in 2015. Featuring two works of deep 'fourth world' sounds, they highlighted a shift to more mellow, synthetic and hazy compositions.

His break out came, however, when he explored this sound further on his eponymous album Baltic Beat, for the acclaimed Growing Bin Records. This has been augmented with the recent club based music as one half of the wonderful Earth Trax (Rhythm Section International / Phonica Records) project.

Here though, Kruczynski returns to the ambient and ethereal - plus a touch of dub techno - to showcase his expansive collaborative work with Polish studio, TVP Culture. Given free artistic license, the 15 'short form' recordings included here were for programming, in the main, on modern Polish Art including the likes of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Miroslaw Balka and Tadeusz Kantor, as well as some international aspects for Enrico Prampolini, Ai Weiwei and Monica Bonvicini.

Taken from over 70 episodes the material included recollects imagery, video and memory to present a series of short vignettes that together create one whole. Minimal and hazy ambience (V, VII, VIII, XI, XII) envisages classic melodies and chords and is accompanied by further 'fourth world' pieces (I, II, III, VII, X) that present an oeuvre that is recognisably the music of Kruczynski, while remaining fresh and perfectly meditative.

A counter can be found in the atmospheric dub works (IV, IX, XIV) that hint at echo chamber environs to get infinitely lost in. As an album then, "Selected Media" can be heard as a snapshot to Kruczynski's music journey, a meeting of art and music that is oft overlooked but very much essential.

"Time & Space", Jorge Caiado's debut album, took a 7 year creative cycle to be conceived and finished. It's the synthesis of a prolific period dedicated to exploring the many facets of House music.

Since his first release on Balance, back in 2012, Jorge has captured the attention of several father figures of the electronic music universe such as Chez Damier, Move D or Andrew Weatherall, but "Time & Space" is not about the legacy so far but totally about original repertoire composed specifically for the album format.

"Time & Space" is a journey into sound where the artist brings the vitality of jazz back to House with the help of 2 other fine musicians.

Another essential soundtrack to Lisbon's vibrant electronic music scene just landed!

After releasing a track via Ben Sims' Tribology compilation in 2018 VIL drops his 'Ritmica EP' on the British DJ's legendary Hardgroove imprint this October.

Previous output for Synewave, Analog Solutions and Planet Rhythm have won Lisbon's VIL support from across the techno community and the 'Ritmica EP's propellant cuts continue a strong discography.

Opener '97-1' is an urgent heads down affair that rarely takes a breath, instead relying on the ebb and flow of pads to provide contrast to the undulating bass and punchy rhythm track. 'Field', taken from last year's Tribology comp, is next up and unfolds a little more slowly with creeping breakbeats laying the grit atop a detailed hypnotic groove. On the flip, 'Breaker' and 'Hawav' go for the late-night dance floor assault from the off, the former employing breaks and phased, percussive lead sounds to substantial effect while the latter lets loose with distorted kicks and chewy, arpeggiated bass.

Ben Sims's Hardgroove imprint hits its 30th release and 20th year of operations with the beginning of a new split EP series entitled 'Toe to Toe', with Vol.1 provided by Mella Dee and Subradeon.

Half Baked have had a strong year with releases from Sakro, Shonky, John Dimas, and SIT, but now they present something a little more mysterious from db jam. While the name may be unfamiliar, you get the impression this is an inside job from the Half Baked family, and the sound certainly fits right in on the label. The A side track, "I Met A Leprechaun In A Russian Forest" locks down one of those impossibly smooth house grooves Half Baked's identity is built on, and then drapes that groove in the finest silken pad sounds. What makes the track stand out is the playful cuts and samples pinging around in the mix, adding to the jam notion of the record. "He Told Me Bullshit" occupies the same sound world but heads in a slightly darker direction, which Arno then refigures into a shivering broken techno refrain suited to more spaced out moments in the cut and thrust of the party.
Breakbeat
Warmly welcoming Gacha Bakradze on Horoom, we share the work of a Georgian artist that has gained international recognition in the past years. Opening with "Elevate" the track stays true to its name: elevating melodies guiding through a jungle of beats. In a time where harder is better, Gacha Bakradze elegantly suggests a more minimalistic approach to the sound of electronic music. While "Toulouse" blends darker streams with aquatic hope, "Employee" enjoys a big drop in the middle, just to continue on a more melodic note. Well crafted music through and through, this EP combines the flavours of different genres without bending them.

Coyote / Buzzard Country A bird shrieks. This is Buzzard Country after all. Two wise old balearic owls rub the sandman from their peelers, and cast their gaze upon a new day. Stretching to greet the Sun, giving thanks, and remembering all those lucky years that went before. All the long journeys into night, days of altered states, and morning-afters staring out to sea. Veterans at this game, fixed on the horizon. Cosmic synths purr over a sleepy Rave baseline. Sparse, spare piano, and woodwinds pick out a path, to help you wind your way home. Around the houses, down forgotten roads. A Spanish guitar plays in the harbour, and the memory of yesterdays parties' 4 / 4 boom sparks a slow, easy Acid flashback. Echoes of 90s IDM, Intelligent Dance Music, clever beats for stoners, mixing with the faded, but not jaded, vision of an introspective White Isle sunrise. There's the spectre of a spine-tingling rush. The keys kick it off. Percussion rattling, a breakbeat shuffling, as you recall the dancers. Flamenco's shout, stamp and clap, the songs of passion, songs for heroes, while lives less ordinary screen inside your head. Movies of your own making muddling up the photo-album snapshots, and the make-believe. Tabla touches, marimba tones, and Eastern drone adorn an oasis of Dub. Conjuring a psychedelic North Africa. A mirage where Tuareg nomads cross the Sahara, accompanied by tasikisikit and prayer. Then the backing track's spinning in reverse, to score a coastal drive. Wayfarers on, as clouds caught in time-lapse charge against the blue

The latest drop on Constant Sound's electro branch, Infiltrate, comes from wild-card Bristolian chameleon Borai. When he's not dropping tuff, jungle-hewed rave wreckers for Hotline and Higher Level he's collaborating with October on refined house bumpers or dread-filled noise excursions in Spiritflesh. As if that wasn't enough, here he is turning his hand to genuinely fresh twists on the electro formula - a breath of fresh air in a crowded marketplace. "Flutta" keeps things snappy and decidedly pacey, but the overall mood is really quite light, while on "Rashaba" things get much darker, to an almost theatrical degree. Some of that breakbeat ruffness sneaks in on "Runnin" and then a little garage swing offsets the dubbed out showers of melody and cheeky rave stabs on EP closer "Narroways". Stunning stuff.
Electro
Constant Sound's electro arm, Infiltrate, calls upon the considerable talents and technical heft of London Modular Alliance for a bruising EP of body-popping exploration strapped to a tough n' funky beatdown. "Crack Fox" is as nervy and nimble as the title might suggest, while "Regular Customer" takes things in a hyper-detailed direction compatible with the kind of advanced machine funk you expect from Silicon Scally. "Blinky" follows suit with another artfully woven web of twitchy synth hooks and deftly sequenced drums, and then "Other Worlds" switches things up with some seriously hefty bass pressure pivoting around a dubstep attitude towards space and moodiness.
Techno
After taking time out to search for the right blend of carefully curated tracks, Bristol-based dancefloor futurists Innate return with a third multi-artist EP - shot through with melody, warmth and soul.

A quartet of timeless-sounding tracks full of stargazing sounds, undulating acid lines, far-sighted electronics and crackling beats, the A side kicks off with Perseus Traxx's "Drifting In Space": a loose-limbed exercise in analogue house deepness that wraps slowly shifting pads, meandering melodies and pulsating TB-303 motifs around broken house drums.

Welcoming Australian scene stalwart Ewan Jansen to the fray with "Sinders", he effortlessly blurs the boundaries between far-sighted, Motor City style techno and the kind of head-in-the-clouds analogue sounds that have always been his forte.

On the flip, Reedale Rise adds his touch with "Coral". In keeping with the brilliance of his 2018 debut album "Luminous Air", he drops a colourful, picturesque voyage into deep electro territory rich in ear-catching melodies, engaging chord sequences and crunchy machine percussion. To round, label co-founder Owain K returns with "Teifi", another ultra-deep treat: an enveloping, dancefloor excursion rich in fluttering lead lines, slowly expanding chords, vintage bass and punchy drums. A fitting conclusion to Innate's latest immaculate, eyes-closed voyage."

Active for the past couple of years, Burnski's Instinct alter ego has been a revealing window into the ruder side of this seasoned producer's repertoire, and so it continues on round seven of this self-titled label series. The A-side jam "Operation" finds the Leeds stalwart in UK Garage mode, riding a mean bassline flex and amping up the 2-Step shuffle. Jack Michael takes up the B-side mission with a razor-sharp electro workout that matches bleepy electronica with badass breaks and nasty bass to get bodies freaking all over the joint. This is a record precision primed for basement sessions - if you're looking for some sounds to do real damage in the dance, look no further.

Matthieu Faubourg's 1st album was the opportunity for him to express deeper shapes of his personality. It took Matthieu almost a year to compose it, mostly in Vienna. The whole album was created around one master idea: sobriety. Matthieu's plan was to create a soundtrack that envelops body and soul, like a journey for the mind. The music on this album is not necessarily aimed at clubs. Melancholy can be heavily felt on this album, for instance in the beautiful featuring with the German singer Meggy. Also, this project is blessed with an energetic remix by none other than Byron The Aquarius. Constant traveling and hours spent alone on the road are things that have had a big influence on this album. "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication", a quote from Leonardo Da Vinci, speaks to Matthieu in a way that he finds beauty and joy in simple things of life.

After a false start or two, Ess O Ess have finally joined the Kinfolk stable with a thunderous release featuring Laura Lee of Khruangbin fame.

Totem is the name and four versions is the game.

Starting off, the original mix is a wailing guitar-heavy psyche rock out that sees Laura Lee's vocals carrying it across a peyote-filled landscape.

Saul's Swamp Crawl version sees the slow 'n' heavy rock elements kept in the mix but with added electronic flourishes. Head nodding is an optional extra.

The Hardway Brothers decided to tune in with the spirit of Johnny Jenkins and haul it through New Orleans via a pit stop at John Carpenter's desert holiday home.

Otologic bring up the rear with an altogether different take by donning their finest digi dub garb and take it as far away as they can from it's psyche out beginnings

Label and artist deliver once again, this time with a mammoth quadruple pack vinyl that gathers together some of the best digital-only releases Carr has put out. This package is incredible value for money, positively overflowing with thoughtfully rendered sci-fi soul that will keep you returning to make new discoveries for years to come. Whether it's the aqueous funk of "Angels" or the airy electro of "25th," every one of these 17 tracks is gold.

David Swatten self released the "South EP" under his Planisphere guise out of Australia back in the year 2000. The 4 track 12" of ultra deep tones and smoky piano musings only found its way into a handful of owner's collections. A few copies resurfaced much later in 2017, with Dave himself selling his last few remaining records via email orders gathered through the online treasure trove that is the We're Going Deep Facebook group. For Those That Knoe promptly got in touch with Dave to talk about a potential project and it can now be revealed. This labour of love has come to fruition in the form of a long player that features three cuts from the "South EP" as well as 8 other rare and exclusive previously unreleased recordings.

Considering the quality of the events, you can drop the needle on this various artists joint safe in the knowledge the same high standards apply. The killer new project from Voigtmann, V3000 is up first with the ear-snagging machine funk of "The Man Who Belongs To The Horizon", before Alex Celler drops in some utterly cheeky, wriggling micro house naughtiness to add some spice to the after party. Andre King brings things back to an electro tip for the edgy sci-fi noir of "Floating Sensation" and Unai Trotti restores the balance with some boisterous 4/4 bleep business.

Walking Through; Subtle melodic synths answering to a dynamic bass for the most techno track of the EP. Find Your Way; an ambient track closing the journey with a vocal between textures.

Proud and in charge, Exzact returns with more unfaltering electro aimed at the purists in the room while still exploring avenues that will appeal to ears of a wider sonic disposition. Three tracks of broken futurism all equally accomplished and irresistible. 'Feeling' is perhaps the most upfront here, its arpeggiated introduction building atmosphere before beats drop that can only really be described as fresh, picking up tracking high-hats as things progress before introducing an echoed synth arrangement plucked straight from Bladrunner's deleted party scene. The BFX remix throws in four-to-the-floor sections, using these to build tension, breaks acting as explosive moments to unleash the true vibe. Kenethetic joins on the high pitched 'Above', while man of the moment- in this genre at least- Brice Kelly turns said track into a moody, evil work of genius.

MPX 2 features 3 cuts of blisteringly linear, apocalyptic techno from A Saggitariun, fresh from the release of his recent album on Running Back.
The record also features a remix from Mor Elian (Fever AM, HyperColour) who reimagines "No Drama" as an almost sub-aquatic dub-excursion.

MPX is both a new vinyl only label from Man Power that explores raw forms of Techno, as well as also being an alias for the producers own occasional technoid excursions.

REPRESS ALERT: Emerging slowly from understated beginnings, 'Running Into The Sun' sees Komodo deliver the kind of expansive tones that easily establish a vibe on the dancefloor, nodding to progressive house's fundamentals while borrowing plenty from earthier, more organic-sounding ends of the four-four scene. Eric Duncan does the business on the remix, taking it into tougher territory and throwing in a cacophony of drummy intersections that help build the atmosphere, placing the whole arrangement on a knife-edge. 'Slow Burning' does what it says on the tin, growing and grooving its way through spiralling synths and acidic inflections, adding some gentle chords to bring in some welcome melody. Latrec evidently has a different understanding of the phrase given his remix, cutting back to throbbing kick drums while allowing just enough of the harmony to enter earshot, with trance-like results.

The 3rd release in No Fuss's vinyl series offers the likes of Saison, Risk Assessment, & Natasha Kitty Katt. A1 is a deep and dirty number from Saison titled "Till The Day I Die". Jackin' beats and a bumpy bassline complimented by a Juno 60 synth & sampled vocals. A2 is a deeper track from House artist Risk Assessment with sampled vocals and bluesy piano titled "I Don't Understand". B1 "The Riff" is classic Saison at its best. Their jazzy pianos, driving bass and swinging beats never disappoint the dance floor. B2 is Glitterbox resident and rising DJ Natasha Kitty Katt. Katt offers her unique disco touch of cut up samples and filtered drums to create a feel good disco house slammer.
Minimal/Tech House
This is just the fourth release on Negentropy, but already the label has been catching attention for doing some really interesting stuff, while consistently delivering dancefloor material that refuses to let go once you've been hooked in. French groove monster Sweely seems like a pretty good fit for the imprint, then, as this three tracker proves with ease. Crisp, sharp, and packed with energy, 'Take One' kicks off with the kind of punchiness that belies what's about to happen- soon dropping into a freeform, jazz-infused breakdown that appears to come out of nowhere, switching the vibe of the tune completely. You can almost see the sci-fi console lights behind the micro-percussive detailing on 'One Or Another', while 'Deep Into The Rhythms' is destined to please anyone who enjoys getting their head down to an archetypal relentless roller.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Los Angeles disco producer LUXXURY's Be Good 2 Me 12" kicks off with the title track, a muscular, bass guitar-powered song (as heard in Forza Horizon 4 for XBOX). Evoking that 1979 moment where rock bands like Kiss and The Rolling Stones made their token 'disco song,' the tune was inspired by the melodic punk basslines of The Clash's 'The Magnificent Seven' and Hot Chocolate's 'Every 1's A Winner. "I Need You" (8.5, DJ Magazine) is an honest-to-god love song featuring funked-up bass from Fitz' and the Tantrums' Joe Karnes, while "Feel the Night" (as featured on Hedkandi Beach House, Toolroom's Poolside Ibiza and more) is a rubbery dancefloor destroyer just begging for falsetto sing-along. 'I wanna be EVERYTHING' is an unabashed love letter to 70s dancefloor culture audaciously recalling the sexual hysteria of peak time Studio 54: Loleatta Holloway, Chaka Khan and all four Gibb brothers rolled into one.

This time last year, Mister Nick and The Forgotten Man launched the Noctu Recordings imprint via a superb single-sided salvo. It portrayed a producer in tune not only with dancefloors, but also the fundamentally far-sighted, intergalactic vision of Motor City techno. The good news is that this belated follow-up is arguably even better. Epic A-side "Pulsar" is a superb example of his craft; a deep and melodious voyage through shimmering pads, B12 style sci-fi melodies and crunchy machine beats. His ability to wrest every last ounce of soul from his machines is confirmed by delicious B-sides "Sky Birds of Ki" and "Beyond Sector 9", both of which fix dreamy chords and melodies to punchy electro grooves.

Mike 'Agent X' Clark is a true hero of the Detroit scene, but he rarely gets the props he deserves, making any outing of his a cause for celebration. El Prevost's No Speakers label knows what's up, and they've drafted in Clark for his killer jam "The Heat." The name is no foil, this track will set any party ablaze with its distinctive speech sample and saucy rhythm section. Alongside the original, there is a strong cast of remixers on hand to serve up deadly variations, from the label boss' skipping, psyched-out groover to Ben Sims' appropriately thumping techno workout. Peter Rocket especially impresses with a crafty breaks version that should slot in nicely with the resurgent electro scene.
Minimal/Tech House
North South are channeling the early 90s with this sprightly new release from label co-founder Henry Hyde. There's a clue in the title "I Heard You Like To Squelch" - the acidic synth line underpinning the track is certainly one to whip out the gum boots for, but it's also lifted by bright and hopeful string pads straight from the Motor City blueprint. "My Function" is a playful track with more snappy synth plays and a catchy earworm vocal hook. "Sick Rick" has a more minimal outlook, but there's still space for a proper cheeky bassline, and then "Second Face" completes the set with another wriggling, wiggly groover to get all kinds of mischief going on in the club.
Minimal/Tech House
The third trip out on Nuances De Nuit brings together another killer selection of ear-snagging club cuts that appeal to the deep-digging community. Kolter's "Don't Kill My Groove" has already been drawing plenty of favourable attention from the likes of Moxie with its deft breaks and electro-funk stylings. T. Jacques' "Control" is a peppy tech house jam with a sleek garage bump that should go down a treat with serious heads and passing trade alike. The real treat here though is Metro's "Here For The Love", a seriously in-demand jam from 1994 finally getting the repress treatment to take it out of the hands of the sharks. Vitess completes the package with "133cc", a dynamic wiggler with enough tripped out elements to take out a tank.

Miles Sagnia has a deep-rooted backstory in the UK underground techno scene. Under his own name and as Miles Atmospheric he's produced consistently compelling techno for labels like Finale Sessions, FireScope, Aesthetic Audio and Applied Rhythmic Technology. Such associations point to the soundworld Sagnia inhabits - a harmonically balanced strain of deep-diving brain food that favours expressive musicality and inventive programming over rigid functionality.

Having previously appeared as Miles Sagnia on Ornate back in 2010, he returns to the label as Miles Atmospheric with three cuts that explore melancholic moods through artful interplay between beautifully rendered synth tones and intricate drum machine excursions. These tracks still move with purpose and presence, but the end goal is more cerebral than physical - a perfect fit for the immersive experiences Ornate has always strived to promote.

The incredible DeFeKT (aka Matthew Flanagan) has been a tireless advocate of true electro and techno over the last number of years, steadily honing his hardware based sound that has earned him admirers all through the electronic music community. DeFeKT released a 8 track mini album in 2010 which gained great support from Dave Clarke. Since then a slew of 12" Eps and remix's have emerged under the DeFeKT and ESS guise on labels like Combat recordings, Solar One Music, AC Records, Cultivated electronics, shameless toady, Signal Code,Komisch and Electronic Explorations to name a few. His eager abuse of analog drum machines and modular synths is a breath of fresh air in today's laptop dominated scene... this is his debut release on Orsonl with his wonderful electronic delights. If you know your electronics then you'll know DeFeKT.
Minimal/Tech House
Low-slung stuff from the Nabucco label bossman, with the original just as primed for afternoon party vibes as it is the earliest morning sets. Gradually building momentum from its pared back stepping opening, soaring synth lines and subtle vocal stabs invoke the glory days of West Coast house- as smooth as it is uplifting, warm and inviting. On the flip, Mandar's remix retains most of the same elements, placing a more emphasis on the keyboard stabs and, although running for less time, has a greater sense of journey. Its dubby mid section allowing plenty of room for jazz inflected pianos to usher in smoky, chilled-out vibes in direct contrast to the punchier moments. The result is arguably even more useful that the original, and certainly something capable of pulling dancers in and not letting go.

Resurgent Welsh techno wizard DJ Guy launches his own label with a fresh batch of deep diving jams that put the soul back in the machine. From the twinkling, starry-eyed delights of "Music Is Life" to the horizontal meditation of "Interplanetary," this is immaculately executed electronica in the fine tradition of UK trailblazers like B12 that sounds as fresh as it did in the 90s. "Warmth In Rhythm" sports a nagging house groove to suck you in with ease, while "Propulsion State" fires off a dazzling arpeggio that heads skywards with a twitchy electro backbone for company. Top shelf tackle from a seriously talented cat.
Deep House
The New Lazare Hoche & S.A.M. Establishement is presenting two massive weapon for the dancefloor on a deeper tip.
Industrial/Noise
The second album to be reissued by Mannequin and Platform 23 Records of the music from Bourbonese Qualk, Hope saw the politically active musical entity expand on their mix of music, art and politics.

Staunchly independent, doing the recording and design via their Recloose Organisation label, by 1984 the group had occupied a large disused building on the Old Kent Road, becoming the base for the band's activities as well as other creative and political activism.

Recorded at the Ambulance Station, Hope is full of unceasing drum machine rhythms, electro pulses, echoing samples and lo-fi synths matched with strummed guitars and dub bass. The accompanying drones and snarled vocals go beyond any early 80's industrial tag to be something more unique, with the uncompromising, conceptual and avant flashes showing a more experimental buzz, an awkward quasi-funk noisy nuisance.

Remastered by Rude 66, this is music as much for then and today, a radical, revolutionary cultural force that acts as a positive social charge.
Deep House
Politics Of Dancing Records celebrate their 5th anniversary with two various artists vinyls, involving a solid line up of confirmed and promising producers. Here is the second part featuring the talented Chris Stussy, Djoko & T. Jacques, Michael James and Jamahr, all delivering some serious deep house and fine tech house tracks, tailored for demanding dancefloors.
UK Garage
Two tracks that perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the 90's house era. A must need for those heady educated listeners.
Techno
An absolute future classic album of the incredible Derek Carr on Sushitech's sub label - Pariter.
A long journey of 15 tracks that starts with some deep and dubby chords, acidic grooves and ends up with lush string based ambients.
For the fans of Convextion, Schatrax and of course Derek himself! Huge release!

Minimal/Tech House
Nacho Bolognani is a name many will recognise from previous outings on the likes of Highpath, Fun Records and Momentz, here he turns on similar charms for the two-year-old Purism. Again on an intricate and layered tip, we open with 'Distance Dub', which is a bouncing trip into minimalistic but detailed, track-y and groovy tones. 'Kip' is more upfront thanks to its clever use of vocals, switching the feel from heads down to party fuel. 'Grey' introduces delicate, twinkling samples and playful keys that lollop with purposeful clumsiness to create something veering on freeform. Closing out on 'Flow', a deep tech number built from submerged-sounding elements, regular voice stabs and mysterious harmonisation adding a spatial aspect to the cut. Rewarding stuff that should do well with players that approach mixes with pin-point accuracy and patience.
Deep House
Second release on his own Quasar White label, this time the first side is characterized by a more complicate sample game. "Track 1" is a classic jazz based house track, with a gummish bassline merged perfectly in the chord sample, a set of swinged snares and some spurious vocals coming out from nowhere, while "Shadow Waltz" is a dark and hypnotic groove that builds its structure around a myriad of sound sources, making it literally an entangled puzzle evolving in time. On the other side "I'll Do No More" looks back to the moods of the first release, especially the B side, being a spacey and introspective love based journey."
Techno
Unknown Berlin area label/producer RECYCLED makes an outstanding debut release. Classic soundings, perfect structure and a styling that clearly makes reference on oldschool Techno. The record means busyness from the beginning with the floor heater Industries, followed by the steady firm beats Block. In B Side, Energy is probably the strongest track on the release and Skynet brings some chords and colors, adding class and deepness to this awesome 12".
UK Garage
Rhythm People are back with a great 4 tracker. A collection of house & garage music from talented artists spanning across the globe.
Indie
Well, the idea was to release some guitar psych and stuff on RTTD as well but seeing as how I don't get any demos like that you'll have to make do with another children of leir one.
Techno
Russ Gabriel founder of Ferox Records and the house music label - Soul On Wax Communications is one of the U.K.'s most respected producers, having recorded nearly one hundred EPs and several albums since 1991.
His recent debut release The Controller on the respected Firescope Records continued his record of outstanding releases. He now arrives on Subconscious Algorithms with 4 slices of deep classic motor city techno. From the opening track "16 hours" with lush pads and electronic funk and "Dromedary" with deep grooves and dose of acid to "Photoa" we are in Detroit territory. The closing track "End of Doubt" adds something extra, with a more European electro feel and hints of a darker sound and rounds of the record perfectly.
Techno
London based French producer Mondowski follows a spate of recent releases on Relish and Ombra with a new club-orientated vision for London label and clubnight SC&P. Following his remix services on label's debut and 4th releases, Mondowski makes his full lavel debut with an electro inspired turn. Dancefloor orientated lead track Sholay finds a mesmerizing path somewhere between extroverted 80's electro and celebratory spiritual transcendence and gets the remix treatment from Pinkman's Kris Baha who subverts the original by turning the electro backbone up to 11. The EP's B-side, Negative Space, voyages into darker electro territories with Kraftwerkesque synths, rolling pads and a motorik bassline, all of which provides the launchpad for Multiple Man to turn out a pitch black EBM banger.
Minimal/Tech House
Ingi Visions strikes again! After their previous 'Get Slapped EP' it was time for some new heat. Blood brothers Samuel Deep and Julian Alexander known for their energetic style came up with four heavy club tunes ready for the dance floor. These tracks were played all summer and they always passed the test. Truly special illustrations by Firpo a.k.a Freschcore which symbolise two condors (two brothers) and their vision of a creature who's doing everything straight from his heart. Graphic design by the mighty Studio Airport.
Deep House
Originally active around the turn of the century, Difusion are back in action with a mission to champion real songwriting in the deep house scene. "Playin' With Fire" rides a funky disco groove and works around some seriously catchy vocals, while Daniel Maunick dubs the track out and rides the filter to deadly effect. "Shining" rounds the EP off with a sweet, sensitive jam that strikes the kind of melancholic tone that wistful dancefloor memories are made of. Once again the vocals lift to the track to another stratosphere of heartfelt expression - this is sure to go down a storm with the late summer crowd.
Minimal/Tech House
Three classic old Surreal tracks with an acid feel that are now more than 20 years old but still sought after.
Techno
Back in 2014, Sushitech Records persuaded UK techno veteran to release his first Wise Caucasian record in 16 years. The single-sided "Kutchie Dub" duly sold out weeks after it was released, leaving fans frustrated and Discogs scalpers licking their lips. Happily, Sushitech has decided to do a new pressing so we can all avoid sky-high second-hand prices. The track itself is simple but wonderfully effective: a rolling, hypnotic dub-house number that makes great use of a relatively limited selection of musical elements (beats, bassline, sampled reggae guitars and a few dub-wise electric piano notes). If you missed it first time around it's well worth picking up, especially as this reissue has also been pressed in relatively limited numbers.
Minimal/Tech House
After a busy Summer on the road, South London's Silverlining returns to his home-grown imprint for the tenth release on his cult series. The EP opens with his sublime 2019 remix of Arctor and Jay Hill, previously unrleased on vinyl. On the flip are two reissues: the first of his 1998 remix of Ravi McArthur from Reverberations; and a Detroit-inspired electro track written at the tender age of 19 back in 1995 under his early Spook in the House guise.
Deep House
Sudd WAX is a vinyl only label of Sudd Records Family.
Santonio Echols also known at Tresor and Detroit Dancer Records, the one behind D Records presents 6267 EP on Sudd WAX 6th release. Two authorial deep house, groovy, classic underground dance-floor tunes. And a special co-production with Mike Anderson, on the finest deep moods.
Deep House
Changes, always changes! That is the path than an artist travels in his musical career. But road always as a goal. And Jesus Gonsev gives us one of them in his first album as an artist. Eight tracks for enjoy this long tour and see his influences on it. An album where different styles are played, Deep House, Breaks, Electro, Techno. But harmoniously converge with that characteristic Gonsev's touch. Now is the time to start this journey by placing the needle on the vinyl. Do you want to change your life? A new life...
Techno
Vigenere is creating a mysterious vibe with its obscure collaborative releases, but the music speaks for itself as it plots a course through deeper realms of the dance. After contributing to the first release, Malin Genie is back and seemingly flying solo for a more direct trip into dubby techno territory - that's certainly the vibe on opening immersion heater "Eschaton". "Drain" has a more tripped out minimal flavour with the after hours in mind, while "Venus" swaps moody atmospheres out for a hazy shuffler peppered with slices of warm instrumentation. "Elara" brings things full circle with another crooked dub-out to bring eyelids down heavy in a state of transcendental bliss.
Minimal/Tech House
The levels of intrigue continue to run high around the rapidly developing Vigenere label, as the Malin Genie-helmed label continues to showcase lesser known talents operating in more adventurous corners of the techno domain. Yard One are a UK duo split between London and Manchester, and you can certainly here a rough n' ready soundsystem attitude and the ghost of classic '90s techno permeating the textured, knotty rhythms on opening cut "Sky Kings". "Cellular Entanglement" takes things in a more serene direction, but not at the expense of crisp beats to propel the twinkling synths along. "Unfurling" presides over the flip with a mystical atmosphere that should appeal to those who like their techno oceans deep and dubbed out to perfection.
Electro
Carl Finlow returns with a double vinyl 8 track album, following a prolific run of singles for Lone Romantic, Electrix, Craigie Knowes and Orson. Apparatus is a forward thinking album that reflects Finlow's return to live touring with many tracks hitting harder and darker, pushing his electro sound into new directions and soundscapes. Flawless production is something we have come to expect from Mr.Finlow yet he has managed to raise his game yet again with Apparatus. The album means business from the start, kicking off with the title track, 'Apparatus', a no-nonsense assault on the system with fast tight drum programming, heavily vocoded vocals and powerful synths. The pace continues on the record with 'Bind' and 'Carbon Deposits', Structure' but there are also pure electro cuts like 'Differential' and moody grooves in 'Ampere' and 'Viroids'.
Finlow has been on a staggering run of form and Apparatus continues this remarkable purple patch with a new lease of electro energy. It's not surprising that every credible electronic master on the planet from Weatherall and Craig Richards to Dixon and Maceo Plex are all fans of his work.
Electro
Following a well received string of releases on 'Analogical Force', 'Furthur Electronix' and 'Feel My Bicep' James Shinra makes his debut release on 20/20 Vision. Shinra displays his musical dexterity and diverse influences across this 4 track EP delving deeper into the realms of electro and technoA

'Route 909' serves up emotive melodies rooted down with a heavy kick before working the keys hard to maximum effect. 'Flyby' is a beautiful moment of electronic bliss reminiscent of the great Aphex Twin, while the acid soaked '1111' is a certified dance floor bomb. Shinra isn't adverse to switching tempos and beats and can also deliver flawless techno. The cleverly structured and melodically complex 'On & On' rounds up the wax with a track that makes you want to drift away on the dance-floor, prepare to be transported to a future world where machines have emotions.
Breakbeat
Blazing out of the blocks with a sound fully charged for the breakbeat revival, Yosh inaugurates Vivid with this appropriately vibrant set of UK bass music belters. Taking the best elements from jungle, garage and more, lead track "It's Over" bursts forth in a cascade of rolling drums before the moody sub bass stylings of "We Rewind" takes over. Things get a little more aquatic on crafty tripper "Slow Down", and then the drums come right to the forefront of the mix on crisp and deadly EP closer "Pick Up Roll On." With impeccable production values and a liberal dose of UK rudeness, this is an essential fresh grip for anyone wanting some fresh jungle derivatives in their lives.
Post Rock/Experimental

Former members of Six.BySeven: Bivouac: Julian Cope: The Selecter: Nectarine No9

Inspired by Minimalism: Fripp: Eno: Marcel Duchamp: Krautrock: Proto-Punk: Soundscores: Sci-Fi: Computer Science.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Sammy Massamba's "Azali" originally came out in 1990. The afrobeat artist's sound is shockingly potent, fusing his roots with disco and boogie to create the stuff party dreams are made of. The song has just the necessary edge to make a classic, with the vocals leading the way through the tune beautifully. "Birika" is a slower jam, but no less bold with its keyboard brass and choice guitar solo. Aroop Roy jumps on the flip to edit "Azali", stretching out a touch and adding a little subtle drum machine jack to the beat. It's tastefully done, keeping the vibe on the original intact.
Funk
Taken from a series of three 7" singles from the Vong45 record label, here the West Loop collective remake some of their favourite soul, jazz and funk cuts aimed directly at the DJ fraternity. This release in the series explores New York block party anthem 'Seven Minutes of Funk' by Tyrone Thomas as sampled by EPMD, Jay-Z and many more. The timeless hip hop breakbeat favourite sees West Loop using live instrumentation only, including immaculate Fender Rhodes electric piano, driving live drums, bass and guitar but with this version featuring even heavier drums than the 1976 original for some bustling peak-time dancefloor action. Essential for all funk, breakbeat and 45 collectors.
Deep House
One for the slow-mo crew, or at least those that want their house music delivered in more of a lackadaisical, organic format, think four tracks packed with Wurlitzer-esque melodies, sun-kissed vocal hooks, classic tropical percussive accents and gospel lyric extravagance. At times positive, in other moments somewhat melancholic, the true heaviness in the kicks only really becomes apparent once you've turned the lot up. The latter providing the focal point for appropriately-titled 'Sing Hallelujah', a loose, stomping track capped with handclaps and underpinned by a timeless, acid-influenced synth line. As unashamed as it is uncompromising. The remaining three tracks are pack pared back and reflective moods 'The Fear of Fear Itself'), organ filled playfulness, and head-nodding sexiness ('My Guitar Plays Itself') in equal measures, making for a crossover package that wears its accessible soul very much on sleeve.
Techno
Joe Lucas creates music under a few monikers most often as Causa and notably has appeared on Tusk Wax, Boogie Box and Birdie. The Causa sound elegantly touches on deep house grooves and melodic techno but with contemporary style and is an obvious choice for the Verdant family. The Locks EP is released as Sixtyone leaning towards Detroit flavours with intricate percussion layered with warm soulful keys. Previous releases have attracted high profile remixes from Kuniyuki, Luv Jam and Young Marco and that trend continues. On the flip of The Locks Stojche provides a burly, peak time reshape of Zelo upping the Detroit vibes. Hiver's reshape of the delicate Tregnanton original adds a firm kick, swinging bassline and heady 303 sparkle with dazzling effectiveness.
Electro
The next strike on Zement will be by Alonzo who released on Kraftjerkz and W.T. Records. No discription needed. Six 808 bass music tracks straight from the bottom.
