Turn It Up (repress) (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DISCO SEIS. Rel: 03 Apr 18
Deep House
  1. Turn It Up
  2. Turn It Up (acid dub not dub)
Review: REPRESS ALERT!! Discos Capablanca return with a record from the mysterious Detroit-based Sharif Laffrey (we know little more than his place of birth, and that he likes to ride his bike and warm weather) who brings the heat on the Turn It Up 12". Recorded in Detroit in the late 80s and released on a cassette tape compilation in 1988, the original "Turn It Up" is a long forgotten gem from the period when Electro was beginning to morph and mutate into nascent forms of Techno. Excavated by Hugo Capablanca's label, the track is presented in an edited version that stays true to the original and complemented by an Acid Dub Not Dub version that implements plenty of deranged 303 action.

Pony EP (12")
Cat: LOTR 010. Rel: 03 Aug 16
Deep House
  1. Pony J.A.M (9:48)
  2. Pony Roger (6:38)
Review: Paramida's Love On The Rocks imprint is in great form. Following up Indonesian Jonathan Kusuma's brilliant Underpass EP is Detroit's Sharif Laffrey with the Pony EP and following up that wicked acid anthem "Turn It Up" on Discos Capablanca last year. On the A side we've got the stomping and tunnelling peak time acid house of "Pony J.A.M." which is sure to get the kids trancing out retro-style. That sample of "It's A Fine Day" in the middle was a nice touch! On the flip "Pony Roger" is another, purely belter version of the track, almost bordering on early 90's techno by the likes of Final Cut or Cybersonik, but hey.. he's from The D right?

Key Jam ACID (1-sided 12")
Cat: LOTR 008. Rel: 14 Apr 16
Deep House
  1. Key Jam A.C.I.D (9:01)
Review: For the latest missive on her ever-impressive Love On The Rocks imprint, Paramida has turned to Detroiter Sharif Laffrey, whose been a little quiet since delivering some killer acid business on Discos Capablanca in 2013. "Key Jam (A.C.I.D)" is something of a sleazy, late night treat, with Laffrey expertly combining proto-house style drums and bass, with wonky, pitched-down vocal samples, freestyle synth refrains, the alien pulse of electro, and - of course - some ragged acid lines. There's a lot going on across the nine-minutes, but Laffrey's focus on the power of the groove remains in tact throughout.

Tangier (12")
Cat: ESP 079. Rel: 22 Jun 18
Deep House
  1. Tangier (13:04)
  2. Everything Is Nice (6:30)
Review: To date, long serving but low key Detroiter Sharif Laffrey has specialised in delivering epic cuts that prioritize hypnotic grooves, raw drums and subtle musical shifts. For his debut on Lovefingers' ESP Institute label he ratchets up the intensity by a few dozen notches, basing fearsome A-side "Tangier" around a druggy, full-throttle groove, wild and psychedelic acid lines, snaking Middle Eastern horn solos and the kind of rumbling bassline that will sound awesome blasting out of a meaty soundsystem. B-side "Everything Is Nice" is deeper and groovier in tone, with Laffrey wrapping bleeping melody lines and echoing vocal samples around a crunchy drum machine rhythm. It's very good, even if it does lack the restless energy of the exotic A-side.

Always (1-sided 180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DISCO ONCE. Rel: 03 Jul 17
Deep House
  1. Always (KHolio mix)
Review: Sharif Laffrey is one of the great unsung heroes of Detroit's dance music scene, having been instrumental in putting on parties in the Motor City for many years and spinning records in all kinds of legendary spots. When he's not busy promoting, Laffrey also finds time to turn out productions under aliases such as Quadrant and Maersk. Primarily though, his recent work has been under his own name for the likes of Love On The Rocks and Discos Capablanca, who he returns to here with a single sided sure shot entitled "Always". It's a heated, jacking club track that screams of Laffrey's Detroit roots, with an early house thrust and wild 80s-style sampling that will set the party alight.

And Dance (1-sided 12")
Cat: SF 1. Rel: 11 Apr 18
Deep House
  1. And Dance (14:07)
Review: Sharif Laffrey is something of an unheralded hero of the underground Detroit scene. Active since the halcyon days of the mid-90s Motor City rave movement, his sporadic releases are rarely less than superb (as those who copped last year's radical, thrillingly wayward acid house mutilation of Pet Shop Boys "Always On My Mind/In My House" will attest). The single-sided "And Dance" is another delightfully wonky epic; a 14-minute fusion of chopped-up Italo-disco loops, rising and falling acid lines and heavily manipulated spoken word vocals. There are multiple stops, starts, breakdowns, drops and build-ups, with Laffrey subtly building up the pressure via waves of wonky Motor City electronics throughout. There aren't many of these around, so act fast if you want to secure a copy.
