Disco/Re-Edits
  1. Lagos, New York
  2. Zombie Jamboree
Review: Boom! The good ship Golf Channel returns with the first of two essential offerings and a label debut for the killer Africaine 808. The Berlin-based duo Dirk Leyers and Nomad comprise Africaine 808 and those with a regular vinyl habit will know them from last year's DJ Muscle series from WT Records. As their name suggests, the usage of the 808 is key to the Africaine 808 sound, and their output thus far can be comparable with the music of Comeme albeit with a focus on some of Leyer and Nomad's personal favourite African and island funk tracks. The pair debut on Golf Channel with a two-track 12? that features some excellent graf style sleeve art done by Nomad. DO NOT SLEEP

Rhythm Is All You Can Dance EP

  1. Rhythm Is All You Can Dance (5:58)
  2. Rhythm Is All You Can Dance (Wolf Muller remix) (6:02)
  3. Revanche (5:46)
Review: Africaine 808's first EP for Phil South's Golf Channel label, the double A-side Lagos, New York/Zombie Jamboree, was arguably one of the releases of 2014 - a sublime 12" that joined the dots between Konk, early Latin house, techno and Afro-disco. Hopes are naturally high, then, for this follow-up. "Rhythm Is All You Can Dance" is not as instantly effective as either of those tracks, but it's still rather special - think darting, woozy synthesizers, spitting drum machines and dense African percussion. Jan Schulte provides the obligatory remix under his Wolf Muller alias, dropping a bouncier groove whilst emphasizing Africaine 808's woozy synthesizer lines. Bonus cut "Revanche" is rather special, too, and recaptures some of the celebratory feel of last year's terrific 12".

  14. Tummy Tummy (feat Nonku Phiri/Makadem - Esaas Afro Synth Bubblegum remix) (5:33)
Review: Given the quality of their output to date, its little surprise to find that Africaine 808's debut album, Basar, is rather special. Built around their now famous polyrhythmic, Afro and Latin-influenced drum machine programming, it begins with a touch of snaking jazz, and climaxes with a dense, uplifting Afro-gospel workout. In between, you'll find 21st century bruk, delicious downtempo torch songs, Juke-influenced Cajun blues, and hard-to-define - but thoroughly engaging - wig-outs. This limited edition vinyl version is also bundled with a bonus 10" containing remixes of the previously unheard "Tummy Tummy" by Highlife types Auntie Flo and Esa; the latter's cosmic, synth-heavy version, featuring a range of additional vocalists and musicians, is particularly potent.

It's little surprise, then, to find that the Berlin-based outfit's debut album, Basar, is rather special.

Everybody Wants To

Disco/Re-Edits
  1. Everybody Wants To (4:38)
  2. Everybody Wants To (12" disco dance mix) (6:58)
Review: Hot on the heels of the release of their brilliant debut album, Basar, Africaine 808 drop a fresh single. Intriguingly, "Everybody Wants To" is something of a departure from the polyrhythmic, global fusion style explored on Basar. Instead, it sees the Berlin-based duo explore the world of synthesizer-heavy space-funk. Of course, there's still plenty of Latin and African influences amongst the loose and organic percussion, but these seem to play second fiddle to the vocoder vocals, bustling bassline and intergalactic synthesizers that dominate. Of the two versions, it's the flipside 12" Disco Dance Mix that really hits the spot, with DJ Nomad and Dirk Leyers extending the groove and emphasizing the superb bassline for greater dancefloor enjoyment.

  3. ESP (Lexx Escape From The Island remix)
Review: It's been some three years since Paul Byrne last donned his Apiento moniker for the brilliant "The Orange Place" on World Unknown. In that time, he's been busy building up his Test Pressing website, which has helped him make a whole load of impressive new connections. One-time Yello and The Shamen cohort Ian Tregoning lends a hand on "ESP", the lead cut on this first 12" for Golf Channel. The subsequent track is an uncomplicated joy - a woozy chunk of alien-sounding Balearica full of YMO synths and shuffling, picturesque rhythms. Lexx remixes, giving the duo's original a glistening analogue deep house feel. For the EP's other missive, Byrne joins forces with Sade's Andrew Hale - yes, really - for a hazy chunk of bleep-heavy Balearica with a slo-mo acid house twist. Excellent stuff, all told.

Review: Some of the best record labels out there act as a platform for hitherto unknown artists and music scenes to get wider exposure, and with this latest release Golf Channel certainly fall under that banner. Autarkic is a cold wave project from Tel Aviv musician Nadav Spiegel whose work is new to us at Juno HQ but most certainly a fine addition to the Golf Channel canon. The four-track Hello To Mrs Blank arrives with the assistance of fellow Tel Aviv outfit Red Axes, channelling both a sound and look that feels very much like a well-executed contemporary take on the cold wave and primitive electronics aesthetic.

  4. Quiet Force (5:40)
Review: According to their Soundcloud page, the Balearic Gabba Sound System are "geezers with a common love for sonically weird, feel good, bona fide recordings with a twist..." and that's good enough for us! Marco Gallerani, Bjorn Torske and even Prins Thomas are rumoured to have been involved in the project. Following up some great releases and remixes on on Hell Yeah and Secret Life, they land on Phil South's stellar Golf Channel and get stuck in straight away on "Quando" a hazy, psychedelic and slow burning epic for the early evening punters or the early morning sunrise alike. "Adriatic Bolt" is a cute little pop-inflected 80's style number while "I Dont Care Who You Are" gets back to the chill-out room on this beatless cosmic affair, featuring some pretty impressive vocals. The bubblegum acid of "Quiet Force" closes out proceedings appropriately.

Review: Those cheeky scamps at Golf Channel come through with a surprise here with A Walk In The Dark, the debut album from a mysterious group of individuals known only as The Central Executives. Concerted internet searching as to the exact identity of The Central Executives has proved fruitless, as have attempts to coerce the label for information. However given how extensive Phil South's figurative rolodex is, not to mention the sheer breadth of talent that's appeared on Golf Channel over the years, we are willing to wager there is some high profile disco talent behind The Central Executives. Certainly A Walk In The Dark is filled with loose limbed punk funk and supple house that's quite aptly described by the label as "Sound Signature style machine jams, bare bones vocal led improvisations, discordant Arthur Russell moments & the distorted reflections of roots House that run to the very core of the big apple."

Review: 18 months on from the release of their fine - if largely overlooked - debut album under The Central Executives guise, Rogue Cat Studio dons Dean Meredith and Ben Shenton return with a new 12" for Golf Channel Recordings. Opener "Wazoo" is something of a smasher, combining the rolling heaviness of house, the percussion programming of 808 electro and the fizzing synthesizers of electrofunk with all manner of wonky touches. This off-kilter synth-funk feel is continued on the delightful title track, which sounds like Prince after a heavy night on Regret-amine. There's also a nice bonus in the shape of Leo Mas and Fabrice's remix of album track "Loveray '79", which turns the Latin-tinged disco original into a dense, Puerto Rican house delight.

Review: It's taken a while for The Central Executives' fine debut album to find its' way onto CD. It initially appeared on vinyl in early 2014, impressing critics and crate diggers alike with its' thrill-a-minute blend of classic New York influences (think post-punk disco, punk-funk, quirky house, Konk and Arthur Russell) and eccentric production from Rogue Cat bosses Dean Meredith and Ben Shenton. While there are some similarities to the duo's similarly eclectic and oddball Mind Fair project, A Walk In The Dark aims more obviously for the dancefloor. For the most part, it succeeds, from the sax-laden leftfield disco goodness of "Loveray 79" and throbbing, stylized odd-house of "Velvet", to the dubbed-out, synthesizer-heavy swing of "Shut Ya Face".

Review: The first release on Golf Channel's occasional ChannelXXX edit offshoot, Justin V's "I Want Your Love", was something of a runaway hit, becoming one of the most-played disco reworks of the past couple of years. This 12", boasting typically dub-heavy production from Rogue Cat chiefs Mind Fair, is an altogether different prospect. "Rio", for example, turns a jaunty chunk of post-punk pop - complete with bubbling horns and heavy Latin percussion - into a sludgy Balearic gem. As for flipside "Steel", it bobs and weaves at a slo-mo tempo, with the action revolving around a deep, rich bassline. Interestingly, the 12" also comes with a free CD, mixed by the Mind Fair boys.

Review: Given his track record and history, you'd expect this debut album from former Wild Bunch soundsystem member Milo Johnson to be pretty special. While it's far from perfect, it's certainly an excellent set. Musically, it blurs the boundaries between edits, original production and sample love, featuring tracks created using spoken word samples and snippets from some of his favourite obscure records. There are forays into shuffling, near soulful house (the two-part "Sexual Tension"), broken house ("Yearn"), disco-funk (the low-slung "With Your Body"), string-drenched, Ugly Edits-ish disco ("Return of the Savage") and smooth grooves ("Tacky Stuff"), all produced with his traditional dubwise finish. Recommended.

A unique synthesis of cosmic funk, psychedelic rock and deep dub, the entire album is every bit as immersive as you'd want it to be. From the trembling guitar plucks and frenzied momentum of "Monad" to the far-away cries and synth-slaying textures of "Slow House" via the planet-leaping drum energy and synth soars of "Samba Da Maconha", Gala Drop's distinctive delivery and creativity is showcased with accomplished skill. You won't hear another record like this in a hurry.

Review: It's been six years since the release of Portuguese combo Gala Drop's acclaimed, self-titled debut album. In that time, there have been line-up changes, subtle changes in style, and a surprise meeting with Detroit legend Jerry The Cat. The latter makes a big impression on II, their long-awaited sophomore set, contributing hazy vocals throughout. The real genius of II, though, lies in Gala Drop's new-found sound - a deliciously Balearic mix of heavy dub influences, loose Balearic rock, picturesque electronics, and a curious-but-brilliant fusion of cheap drum machines and dense live percussion. As a result, the album effortlessly swings between enveloping, sun-kissed wooziness (see "Slow House" and "All Things"), and psychedelic, Balearic dub-rock ("Let It Go"). Happily, the sun shines throughout.

Review: Phil South's Golf Channel has developed a fine relationship with Portuguese band Gala Drop over the years with the 2014 LP II the highlight of this union. Before the year is out, band and label reunite for Nova, a killer 12" which sees the band reworked by some of their talented compatriots. First up are Niagara, delivering their first ever remix after a year in which they've excelled on records for Principe, FTD, and their own Ascender label. In the trio's hands, "Nova" is granted the big band disco treatment, Lisbon-style, and it's nice to see how different their vibe is to the subsequent remix from Tiago. The Lux legend veers off into soulful broken beat house territory, channelling the vibes of old Bugz in the Attic and Kaidi Tatham material and we're loving it!

Review: Did Golf Channel boss it last year? Of course they did! How they gonna follow up in 2015 then? Keep on keeping on pal. Phil South's superb label prove they are not averse to the odd pun based contributor here with a debut for Cherry Garcia whose three track Vine Of Souls EP is perfect fodder to ease those out there still suffering from a New Year hangover. Sporting some artwork that looks like a discarded story board idea from The Mighty Boosh, the mysterious Cherry is evidently a talented soul on the basis of the sheer musicianship on display here. Golf Channel describe the title cut as "shapeshifting Brazilian dancehall-psych" and it sits well, bursting with a wonderful energy that will cause many to dance. Fans of Finis Africae are recommended to spend some time with the sumptuous closer "Sol Floresta".

Here, they return to the same label with another quartet of hazy, Balearic-minded workouts. There's naturally much to admire, from the fuzzy guitars, grandiose dub effects and psychedelic throb of "Kill Your Speed", to the delightfully spaced-out swirl of superb closer "Mystic Mountain". While the more dub disco influenced thump of opener "I Am The Circle" takes care of dancefloor business, it's the humid dub rhythms and tropical textures of "Alma De Fago" that arguably stands out.

Review: For a six-year period between 2006 and 2012, a tiny Italian restaurant in Lower East Side became one of New York's hippest weeknight hangouts. With the assistance of unofficial promoter/musical programmer Jason Kincade, Golf Channel has put together this celebratory collection, featuring tracks from regular visitors to the unlikely party space. There's much to admire, from the jazz-tinged deep dub disco goodness of Dedication's brilliant "Let Us Rock You", and the Loose Control Band's woozy deep disco treat "Doin' It", to the low-slung disco-acid atmospherics of Populette's "Another One", and the expansive synthesizer soundscapes of Thugfucker's "100". Best of all, though, is the cacophonous, acid-friend disco-punk madness of Totes Preesh's "The Spirit Is Alive".

Review: Juju & Jordash are noted for their experimental nature - with last year's triple LP for Dekmantel perhaps the most conclusive example. Unleash The Golem: Coffin Train sees Jordan Czamanski and Gal Aner return to their conceptual Golem series for Golf Channel with the A Side challenging the aforementioned Techno Primitivism in the experimental stakes. Seventeen minutes long, "Coffin Train" sees the Amsterdam pair conjure up their most claustrophobia inducing production thus far, marrying the freeform electronics of their Magic Mountain High material with vast, droning passages and corrugated acid tainted bass lines. The accompanying "Coffin Train Getaway" is much more rhythmically focused, paring back the textural experiments in favour of plundering through a broken techno rhythm that's got Clapton squat party written all over it.

Review: Surfacing earlier this year on those all too limited Golf Channel promos, the full version of Juju & Jordash's Jewsex 12" arrives replete with some amusing artwork and the even more amusing tagline "Conceived by Juju & Jordash on a balmy night 9 months." Such is the production versatility of Gal and Jordan you never quite know what to expect from the Amsterdam based duo, and this long awaited return to Golf Channel finds them channelling the spirit of countless deliciously filthy italo denizens of days gone by. It's hard not to get swept up in the relentless waves of raw and libidinous sounds that pummel through the speaker cones on the original "Jewsex." Flip over and switch down to 33rpm and the "Clubsex" version goes tougher, harder, and stronger as the rippling arpeggio bassline gets lost amidst the steamy jacking drums - maybe this is bath house music? The duo's penchant for horizon widening dub expanses finally makes an appearance on the appropriately titled "Dubsex."

Review: Bang! The unstoppable Golf Channel has got it on lock-down with this latest slab of wax from NYC scene dwellers Robbie Busch and Josh Dunn - both of them present during the city's golden era and two blokes who have seen it all - who appear here under the LGK moniker. These two house gems are unquestionably killer thanks to their tough but intricate sound design, both cuts are masterfully filtered and washed-out. "I Like It" is a Pepe Bradock style cut with a bubby bassline, funky tones and dashes of gritty experimentation, whereas "Please" is looser and more soulful, chopped-up and echoed out in fine style - that filter lurking in the back is simply class.

Review: The Loose Control Band, a duo made up of Jason Drummond and Jonah Sharp, are an American outfit that deal in everything from deep house to thrash metal. Yes, we know, that is kind of mad. Their latest single sees them return to the equally versatile and multi-faceted Golf Channel label, this time with the 12" single "It's Hot", starting with the punky, nowave Columbus Hotel mix, followed by an injection of tribal 808 beats on the B-side's Bonus mix, and the totally punked-out original version, a stuttering garage tune for the heads. This is seriously sick, don't miss it.

Lose Control/It's (Not) Just An 808

Minimal House/Tech House
  1. Lose Control
  2. Bent
  3. It's (Not) Just An 808
  4. It's (Not) Just An 808 (Warehouse mix)
Review: You'd perhaps expect a collaboration between veteran dub disco eccentric DJ Spun and one-time Spacetime Continuum man Jonah Sharp to be a particularly spaced-out affair. By and large, this first 12" under the collective Loose Control Band moniker is, with the deep ambient dub-meets-808 electro of "It's (NOT) Just An 808" sounding like one of Sharp's own productions from the late '90s. There's a similarly intergalactic feel to the tougher, chunkier "Warehouse Mix" of the same track, while "Bent" is a prime chunk of muddy, early Dubtribe San Francisco deep house crossed with Spun's usual dub disco grooves. Best of all, though, is "Lose Control", an unflinchingly positive chunk of breezy jazz-house complete with cymbal-heavy percussion and gentle electronic builds.

  1. CEREMONY
  2. Hiding From My Shadow
Review: A second Mind Fair 12" this week from Golf Channel primed as a taster for what to expect from the British duo's upcoming debut long player - the label tell us it will be a "bluesy folk funk swamp techno barnyard stomp of an album" in case you are wondering. If you are familiar with Dean Meredith and Ben Shenton's roving project you'll be prepared for the unexpected when it comes to Mind Fair and the two tracks on the Ceremony 12"certainly occupy their own universe. The title cut a superb 11 minute stomp through psychedelic blues disco that features Derek Holt of 70's black country legends The Climax Blues Band, whilst "Hiding From My Shadow" is as bugged out a slab of proto wave as the drug-fuelled name suggests.

  1. Take Me To The Bridge
  2. Let The Music Take Your Mind
  3. CEREMONY (Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold remix)
Review: Former Chicken Lips man seems to be keeping Golf Channel Recordings boss Phil South in business. Having already delivered a constant stream of Rhythm Odyssey & Dr Dunks 12" singles (alongside pal Eric Duncan), Meredith now brings his Mind Fair project (a collaboration with studio partner Ben Shenton) back to the label. "Take Me To The Bridge" is typical of the duo's output, offering a loose, hazy, Balearic-influenced take on disco with distinct pop overtones and bags of live instrumentation. There's a more distinct dubbed-out feel about the huggable Balearica of "Let The Music Take Your Mind", while the Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold remix of "Ceremony" is icy and out-there, doffing a cap to coldwave and sparse, melancholic deep house.

Downtown Nubian EP

Disco/Re-Edits
  1. So Strong
  2. Bloody Mary
  3. Downtown Nubian
  4. Wrong Wire
Review: As with most, if not all Golf Channel releases, the dedication to presentation on finished copies means you can't ever feel too bad about missing out on the clutch of white labels the New York labels sends out in advance of release. That's certainly the case with the Downtown Nubian EP from Mind Fair, with some wonderfully psychedelic music to match the abstract art. Mind Fair is of course the collaboration between MEB's Ben Shenton and sometime Chicken Lipper Dean Meredith - we need an excel formula made to keep up with the latter's various projects - and after numerous 12"s on Rogue Cat and International Feel, the Downtown Nubian EP represents their finest work together to date. The wonderful "So Strong" is perhaps one of the finest contemporary disco cuts in recent memory thanks to the usage of vintage synths, live instrumentation and the sort of dynamic arrangements that few newcomers have a grasp of. That vocal sample is amazing too. A smorgasbord of sounds follow with the avant-garde primitive electronics of "Bloody Mary" acting as a weirded out interlude before the sumptuous jazz funk of the title track and the proto electronics of "Wrong Wire".

Review: Having impressed with a variety of weird and wonderful singles on International Feel, Golf Channel and their own Rogue Cat Sounds imprint over the last three years, it's probably about time Ben Shenton and Dean Meredith dropped their debut album under the Mind Fair alias. Predictably, it's an impressively wonky, off-kilter and dubbed-out affair, effortlessly joining the dots between dub disco, hazy punk-funk, heavy African rhythms (see stand-out "Voodoo Train"), slo-mo chuggers ("Neon Carnival") and bluesy Balearica ("Sunny Carter"). Blessed with plenty of live drums, guitars and bass, as well as vintage synthesizers, it's an attractively loose affair, with great ideas and beautiful mood pieces complimenting the low-slung, out-there experiments.

Review: To date, Ben Shenton and Dean Meredith's Mind Fair project has proved pleasingly hard to pin down, with their singles to date doffing a flat cap to everything from Cajun blues and industrial funk, to dusty disco, punk-funk, sinewy soul and weirdo house. This eponymous debut full-length is similarly schizophrenic in the most glorious of ways. One minute they're dropping the mid-tempo dub disco-meets-new wave chug of "Neon Carnival", the next they're experimenting with acoustic Balearic jazz-funk ("Find Me At The Fair"). Delve deeper, and you'll find tributes to krautrock ("Deutsche Bag") and Liquid Liquid ("Voodoo Train"). It shouldn't really work, but, somehow, it does, making Mind Fair a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Review: In typical Golf Channel fashion, this collaborative 12" from Detroit native Todd Modes and Heroes of The Galleon Trade guitarist Mike Severson offers the perfect balance between left-of-centre experimentation, and disco-influenced dancefloor grooves. This is first evident on the baggy, slightly psychedelic stoner disco throb of "Midnight Exotics", where Severson's hazy guitar passages and beat boxing style vocal samples ride a trippy, disco-rock groove. Flipside "Disco Desire" pushes the intensity level up several notches. This time, Severson offers up wild, heavy metal-inspired guitar solos, which build in intensity over Modes' pulsating, italo-influenced backing track. Headbanger disco anyone?

Review: As the back cover makes clear, Negative Hallucination is a collaboration between Pittsburgh Track Authority member Thomas Cox, and Africans With Mainframes member Noleian Reusse. Given their respective recording histories, you'd perhaps expect this debut EP to be full of bumpin', acid-flecked house. In fact, it's an altogether looser and more melodious affair, with opener "Solitarity" [sic] expertly combining elements from krautrock, analogue house, and cheery Balearic disco. The freaky, alien attack that is off-kilter jacker "Police State" is perhaps more in-keeping with their analogue house histories, while "Surveillance" expertly joins the dots between dub techno, lo-fi house, and intergalactic electronica.

Review: New York Endless is the latest pseudonym of DJ/producer Dan Selzer, who counts members of the Rapture and Italians Do It Better boss Mike Simonetti amongst his former collaborators. This debut EP for Phil South's impeccable Golf Channel imprint does a good job in showcasing his range of influences. "Consultant's Agreement" peppers a loose analogue house groove with Plone and Boards of Canada style lo-fi melodies, while "Scale These Heights" sounds like Kraftwerk's "Europe Endless" after a night out in Brooklyn. The EP's cheeriest moment is closer "Benefits Arrive, Life Goes On", which comes on like an unlikely collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and Young Marco. Impressive stuff, all told.

Review: Golf Channel continue their end of year onslaught with a label debut from emergent London disco dude Payfone, aka Phil Passera, which is filled with misty-eyed and nostalgic dancefloor moves. A softly strutting gossamer groove with twinkling arpeggios and instantly infectious vocal elements, "Paradise" is reminiscent of 2020 Vision at their deepest. "Mice Life", meanwhile, is a more stripped back reflective affair. All swooning synth tones and minor chords, emotion is coded into every minutiae; it sets the perfect scene for "Subcoinscient Lamentation," a super slow, slinky and introspective number with some sultry French vocals that hit you hard. Paradise found.
