Deep House
Jaunt celebrates a decade in the game this year, with the British clubbing institution marking the milestone in typically esteemed fashion. 10 Years of Jaunt - Sea, Land, Air is a 12 track V/A compilation spread across three distinct vinyl discs, each of which is based around some of the world's core elements; themselves a mode of transport or a manner to embark on a 'jaunt'. Each featured artist is somebody who the label has forged a connection with at some stage during their ten year journey - and each track has been titled to the artist's own interpretation of a 'jaunt'. The tracklisting itself has been tailor made to build and develop like their a Jaunt event, with deep, hypnotic, up tempo strands included alongside numerous surprises along the way.

NorthSouth Records are back with their second release again bringing two young, up and coming producers into the fray. On the North Side is Berlin based Bristolian Christian Jay, with a few releases under his belt up to now, this man has been making some wicked music of late and as soon as we first heard these two tracks we knew we had to release them. The South Side is taken up by a friend from Essex, Bilal. Impressing us with his productions for some time now behind closed doors we felt that now is definitely the right time to show off this young mans talents to the world.

SYNE is the new alias of Dennis Huddleston (AKA 36), who is likely to be a familiar name to those of you who follow the modern ambient scene. The SYNE label is dedicated to his techno/dancefloor orientated productions, where wistful strings and drifting pads meet vintage drum machines and 808 basslines. From the melodic, midnight electronics of ""SYNE 2"", to the thunderous dread march of ""SYNE 5"", culminating in the moody Blade Runner-esque vibes of ""SYNE 8"", the SYNE LP is sure to find its place with lovers of deep, emotional techno music.

"The long-awaited Exos and Ohm record will finally see the light of day this November on Exos' new label, X/OZ. This is the second release from the label and also the first Exos and Ohm ep in 16 years. Exos and Ohm are old friends and long-term collaborators having released on the legendary Force Inc. label as well as Thule Records. The pair met in Reykjavik in 1997 and played together in clubs together such as Thomsen and Tunglid, both historical cornerstone in the icelandic club scene. Soon after that they started making music together. This release, Frodari, marks their fourth collaboration and is a sort of sequel to the 2001 Thule Records record ""Paint Me Up"". The records share the track ""Frodi"" which has been remastered for this 2017 release. The album has been in the making for the past two years and is set for a vinyl release in November with a digital release to follow in early 2018."

Last Four Weeks

Disco/Nu-Disco
Following his recent strong turn on Cocktail D'Amore, Jules Etienne makes a trip back to Apersonal Music with more of that island groove for the smoothest slack-wearers in town. "Free As A Man" is a beautifully laid back but funky offering that speaks to all kinds of good times. Jex Opolis turns in a remix of the track that has a little more bite to suit the later demands of the dancefloor. "Don't Wanna Talk About It" sees Etienne linking up with Disco D and winding all kinds of slick strutting business into his sound, and then "Rhythm For The Garden" heads off into wonderful tribal percussion that serves as a handy tool for DJs who want to get some rich drum sounds into their set.
Ambient/Drone
Roberto Aglieri is a noted Italian flutist and composer, and his 1987 album Ragapadani stands as one of his finest achievements. Archeo Recordings are ever hip to the finest treasures hidden away in the folds of esoteric music, Italian or otherwise, and have done a great service in reissuing the album so that it might reach a wider audience. Aglieri's flute sounds haunting and evocative over the range of delicate synth treatments, largely orbiting the minimal realm but with a naive charm that makes the music wholly accessible at the same time. Soothing, thoughtfully crafted music for tender times.
Minimal/Tech House
Constant Black continues to thrive as a label in its own right, complementing the reduced house grooves of Constant Sound perfectly. Rigzz & Saenz follow up the most recent quality turn from Michael James with more of that delicately balanced dancefloor weaponry - nailing the groove in style but using the bare minimum of ingredients. "Janes Drum" does feature a female vocal twirling in the mix, but it's processed and submerged into the minimalist context, leaving the hats and snares to take the lead. "LM023" stands out with its dubby chord stab, but really all four tracks on this EP are worthy of some serious deck time.
Jazz
Duval Timothy brings the art of jazz piano into the modern age, drawing on his heritage growing up in Sierra Leone as much as his life in London and weaving personal messages from social media into the mix on this first release for his own label, Carrying Colour. In amongst the beautifully expressive piano pieces you'll hear snippets of messages from friends and family, adding an intriguingly personal and thoroughly modern slant that winds up adding weight to Timothy's dexterous piano work. Purists may raise their eyebrows, but this points the way for skilled musicianship to step out of the confines of tradition and exist in the contemporary world, and there's no arguing with Timothy's skills as a pianist.
Bass
Chow Down serves up its second release with the adventurous grime exploits of Fallow and DJ Chalice, twisting out all kinds of audacious bass shapes that would set the dance alight at parties such as Boxed. Fallow takes the A side with confidence, fresh from a release on Blood Frenzy, and "Blitz" shows the emergent producer is taking no prisoners with a hail of bullets and haunting Indian classical samples. "Northern Don" is a more wobbly synth-rich beat, while "Operation Dark Fruit VIP" amps up the grime strings. DJ Chalice has a lighter touch, bringing in some sunnier melodics and embracing the RnB influences on "Artois Anthem".
Deep House
Lars Bartkuhn has taken his rich jazz chops to many esteemed places over the years, from Sonar Kollektiv to Neroli, Needs Music to Ropeadope, and his expressive musical style merges perfectly with Aybee's cosmic electronic tendencies on this new Deepblak joint. "Passage (Full Experience)" is a broken beat wonder to behold, all swooning and swirling melodics and freewheeling rhythms. "Passage (Astral Stroll)" takes things deeper, letting the Rhodes lead the way amidst a pattering array of earthy percussion for a truly transcendental trip out. Deepblak's jazz instincts have never sounded so full of vitality as they do on this interstellar single.
Techno
Hailing from Hong Kong and more commonly found recording as S.Y., this release is the first music the producer has put out as Dopamine Rider, and it's certainly a record that thrives on unpredictable rushes of chemicals to the brain, making it a perfect fit on Discos Capablanca. "$ LFO" sports a techno framework of sorts, but it's really a vessel for strange ripples of FX and one-shot tones, but then "Personal FX" ramps up the freakiness with some atonal machine whirring that sounds like it's been wrenched from an errant modular system. "John Cage Is My Homeboy" is positively delicate in comparison, but it's by no means straight laced, and "Sai Ying Pun" finishes this adventurous EP off with a strange drum track that adds a little spice to the DJ tool format.
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
Dutch producer Larry De Kat has been spotted delivering an album to Lazare Hoche and sliding his wares onto SlapFunk and Dungeon Meat alike, but his Katnip label it the one to watch for some of his most personal wares. This new release finds him purring his way through downtempo, soul-inflected selections that open out a whole new dimension to this talented, versatile producer. Juno's vocals are the icing on a particularly funky cake on "Do For Love", while "So Damn Fine" is an instrumental beat worthy of D'Angelo (sadly not included). The jazzy licks pour out of this release like honey - Larry De Kat just upped his game yet again and we strongly advise you to take heed.
Techno
Nathan Melja drew some favourable attention with choice outings on Mister Saturday Night, Black Opal and Technicolour, but now he's steering his own label Dream Real as a vessel for his wayward but warm sonics. This second release keeps the psyched out tone of his previous work intact, offering up four jams of illustrious synth work and fractured beats for the adventurous souls out there. "Ignore" is a vaporous cut of stuttering drums and fuzzy chord shapes, while "Steam" sports a more clearly defined rhythmic pulse for the deepest house heads. "Raindrops" cools things down to a downtempo lilt, and then "That F Sound" nudges towards a leftfield techno domain that Melja ably makes his own.
Balearic/Downtempo
Following the excellent reissue of Aither last year, Emotional Rescue return to the dreamy, decidedly tripped out sound world of French-Persian outfit Vox Populi! with this enchanting collection of early rarities from the early to mid 80s. There's a range of moods on offer here, sounding very much of the era with dashes of On-U dub colliding with kosmische and the worldly outlook of Byrne, Eno, Hassell et al. It's a varied listen and a wonderful introduction to a band that could have so easily been more widely appreciated if they had managed to break out of the French underground.
Techno
Quite how they never linked up before is hard to surmise, but finally UK techno veteran Kirk Degiorgio and UK techno institution Ferox come together to present a killer new EP that draws on the respective legacies of label and artist while presenting something new in the process. "I Have Seen Them In A Dream" is a bubbling, soulful cut that fuses acid lines with stately chord progressions, while "Blind To Revelation" takes a deeper turn into dubbed out percussion and nocturnal melodics. "Beholden" takes a slower, house-inflected turn into blissful pads and strings and then "The Infinite Tether" plots a course spacewards with some refined techno for the astrally-minded.
Techno
Alexander Kowalski has been immersed in techno for a long time, and his sound is massively representative of the reduced, late night Berlin sound. As d_func. he's contributed many times to Marcel Heese's Finitude label, and now he's back to pay tribute to UK free party techno legends Spiral Tribe. Kowalski's own interpretation may be more minimal and hypnotic than the wild, raucous energy Spiral Tribe was best known for, but his trancey approach comes on like a nostalgic vision into the early 90s, while also aligning with the modern masters such as Donato Dozzy and Peter Van Hoesen.
Techno
The Flyance crew are back in action with more of their hugely atmospheric deep house and techno, and this time it's Kas:st at the controls. Things start ominously with the dubby space and nervy arps of "The Eternal Why", a whisper of trance lingering in the wings. "Base 4" gets into even more spaced out territory, plunging vaporous noises and dystopian melodies into the farthest reaches of space. "Amnesia" brings a touch more immediacy to the 12" with some upfront melodic meanderings, and then "The Reveries Of The Solitary Walker" drifts out into experimental territory with a range of hi-res tones, drones and pulses.
Electro
Following a first drop from Leo Anibaldi and a various 12" featuring Mike Ink, DJ Guy and Terrestre, Future Primitive is back with an immersive new LP from CN, whose approach to electro comes loaded with analog fuzz and a wistful vision of science-fiction sounds. This is a record that should appeal to fans of proper electro as envisioned by Drexciya, Bunker Records and CPU alike. The Kraftwerk influence comes thick and fast on "Surfing Carina" while you can hear all kinds of monosynth-powered atmospheric dread lurking on ambient track "Coronal Mass Ejections" - with a consistent concept and a perfect execution this is a masterclass in future-minded machine funk.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Helmed by a crew of ex-pats in Hong Kong craving the musical stimulation of their birthplaces, Homesick is a celebration of the nostalgia and passion at the root of all musical experience, as channeled through seriously on-point disco edits. After choice turns from General Ludd, Marquis Hawkes and others, this various artists 12" brings back former guests in an implied fashion for more of that worldly, adventurous boogie business. "Apocalypse Now" simmers with unresolved tension, tart drums and gnarled synth lines, while "African Temperament" lets the percussion tumble in a cavernous space. "Summer Madness" is a simmering, drum led version of KC Flightt's classic, and then "Gik Gwong Zung" pings the record off into cosmic synth disco territory for a perfect finishing move.
Balearic/Downtempo
Having cruised around labels such as La Luna, Tusk Wax and most tellingly Back To The Balearics, Maricopa has already left a trail of smooth-sailing breadcrumbs behind him, and now he drops anchor in a harbour which may yet prove to be his spiritual home. 'Is It Balearic?' is a question that hardly needs to be asked when you're drifting out to sea on the blissful tones of "Benthos" or reveling in the expressive ripples of "Deer", but it's safe to say these jams would go down smooth with a Mediterranean sunset and an Aperol Spritz.
Deep House
After four volumes of smoking hot disco house business from El Nino, Jackie Brown turn their attention to debutant producer MB22, who understands the party-starting manifesto of the label intrinsically. "Shocked" kicks the record off in a flurry of heated chops and licks, all driven by a nagging hat, and then "Run Sally Run" switches stance to a winsome 80s tinged electro jam, tape-hiss included. "Slick Maneuver" takes things into smooth, boogie-indebted territory and then "Perfection Valley" rounds the record off with the kind of dusty electro funk that Moon B made his name with.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Kalita are busy adding more weight to their on-point reissue catalogue with this excellent single from Caribbean funksters IWABO. "Reggae Down" does indeed feature a skank of sorts and all manner of sunkissed vibes, but there's a greater emphasis on laid back funk than you would find in typical Jamaican output. "Smile On Your Face" is a more light hearted track that equally draws on a variety of reference points to impart its infectious positive message. IWABO may have been a secret weapon of serious diggers for years, but now it's time for the wider record buying public to get in on the groove.
Dub
As Galcher Lustwerk's label continues to expand at an easy pace, so this intriguing prospect arises from the lesser known Double Pelican Man. As The Nassau Sessions title might imply, this is a departure from sleek house and techno into an abstraction of the island boogie sound, taking some cues from digi-dub and 80s dancehall but offsetting it with a final mix that is all its own. "Jet Ski" is a perfect slice of canned dub for mellow heads, and "Sweet Genius" is the pick for a more audacious application of delay and reverb, but the bass on "Shit To Buy" makes it the standout track on this collection of dubwise jams.
Electro
Orson Bramley has a long-standing legacy in UK electro history as part of the Transparent Sound production crew, and he's been recently aligned with Robin Ball's Memory Box parties in London where he's been able to display his years of experience whipping machines into funky configurations in a live environment. This release speaks to that experience, with the various versions of "Then Again" punching out an irresistible sermon of crafty synth lines, swooping strings and crisp beats. Ball steps up for two remixes on the flip that equally reside in the electro realm, but come at the component parts from a different rhythmic angle. One refined idea done five ways - what more do you need to know?
Techno
Moto Music round off a cracking year with this essential collection of deep diving techno finery from Bigeneric, one of Marco Repetto's many long-lasting aliases. The Swiss polymath is a dab hand at wringing illustrious machine soul out of his machines, whether it be crafty, head-snagging rhythms or plush and expressive threads of synth work, and on this double pack you get an abundance of both. With one foot firmly in the heritage of Detroit and the other gazing into the stellar orbit of the finest European techno dreamers, this is elegant, thoughtful electronic music of the highest order.
Deep House
Needs (not-for-profit) is a new label that aims to raise awareness about different issues within society with each release. Their first offering highlights the importance of mental wellbeing, with all profits being donated to mental health charity Mind, and calls upon a strong cast of deep house producers to impart the kind of Smallville-friendly sounds that discerning heads should snap up in a heartbeat. Hubie Davison's "I Know" is a melancholic affair with heart-nagging strings, while Johannes Albert injects a little spice into proceedings with a choice breakbeat and some excellent bird song on "Vigilia". DJ Swagger's "21st Century Slow Jam" is a peppy little shuffler with warm acidic bass and a kick ass swing in the beat, and then Bobby Pleasure finishes the record off with the wistful but tech-edged "Cloudspotting".
Techno
Dutch producer Aleks makes the leap to the album format for the ever-crucial Organic Analogue label, showcasing the breadth of his smoky sound from the gorgeous ambient opening track "Void" to the deep tracking tech-dream of "Gone Home". There are some spicier moments to be head, such as the rugged workout "NTH" and the upfront, rolling house thrust of "City Break", but these moments are still smoothed out by a fog of woozy processing, lingering pads and dusty FX that give the whole record a somnambulant quality that feels right at home amongst the standout material that Organic Analogue is rightly celebrated for.
Deep House
Rhythm Plate vet Matt Hunt is back with his Goshawk alias and the snappily titled Double House & Triple Garage EP, kicking off with the warm and steady grooving deep house of "Down In Brooklyn". "Both Sides Buttered" is a cheekier affair that flirts with splashes of sassy organ chords and finger clicks to die for, but things get serious once more with the soul-drenched "88 Keys", which features an undisclosed number of melodic piano and Rhodes parts twirling in bluesy harmony. "I Live For The Love You Give" finishes the EP off with a sharp jack in its step and a heartfelt vocal lift to drill some raw emotion into your no-nonsense heads-down house session.
Deep House
There's a certain mysticism that hovers around Piramide Registrazioni, with its occult symbolism, mysterious artists and fuzzy, vintage sound. Label protagonist Xinner has been previously spotted alongside S. Moreira on Phonica Records, but here is sharing valuable wax space on Piramide 2 with Autre and Hawaiian Chips. Autre's version of old-skool deep house has an interesting urgency about it, and Hawaiian Chips turns out shimmering electro of the highest order. It's Xinner's tracks that stand out the most though, with synths straining under the weight of their own wobblyness and beats that punch out in clouds of reverb fog.
Minimal/Tech House
Long-serving Italian deep house producer Enrico Mantini has been in the game for a long time, first dropping bombs back in the early 90s, but his career has enjoyed a powerful second wind in the past few years with appearances on Half Baked, 4 Lux and more besides. Having released the Inner Heights EP on PURISM earlier in 2017, Mantini returns with an album of immersive, tripped out grooves supposedly recorded live at Tresor in Berlin. The vibe is consistently deep, refined and just a little bit trippy for the minimal house crowd to go head first into.
Techno
Porn Wax makes a welcome return with more of that devilish deviant acid behaviour, splattered on a trademark hot pink 10" to let everyone know they mean business. Dawn Again takes the reins on the A-side with a fearsome beast known as "Acid Soup". It's an appropriate name, all sloppy drum lines and excessive FX to push the crowd to higher levels of psychedelic rave abandon. Rothmans' "Daffodil" on the flip is a more melodic affair, but no less intense in its straining arpeggios and dramatic synth breakdowns. With very different end results, both sides of this 12" champion the grubby, outboard approach to production as a means of attracting the freaks to the dancefloor.
Techno
Lie Of The Land debuts on Porn Wax with an appropriately subterranean take on the acid house formula, amping up the delay feedback and weaving accomplished waves of melody in between the floor-minded components of the music. "Chapparal" is especially deep diving, tapping into a late night mood for backroom beauties and beasts to sway rhythmically to. "Navigator" has sharper edges, but is no less hypnotic and subliminal in its approach. The Porn Wax stamp is a trusted destination for left of centre tackle for stranger dancefloors, and Lie Of The Land understands their unique vibe innately.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Perpetually locked into a disco groove, Pete Herbert has already impressed this year with the splendour of his releases on Nang alongside Martin Denev, but on this new 12" for Riot Gear he's stepping out on his own. The record actually leads in with the plush, romantic throb of the Yam Who? remix of "Expresso" before the original takes over with a more peppy, borderline hi-nrg approach. On the B side Bottin gets to take "No Big Thing" to task with a version rich in electro funk synthlines, while the original sports some piano house chops and enough sizzling dancefloor energy to ignite a ruckus in a retirement home.
Indie
Hailing from the London rat race, MUX step forward with the first release on Teenage Father and lay their distinctive style out for all to witness. Their broad-reaching indie rock sound has undertones of electronica, grunge and a very British swagger that deserves to get them onto radio playlists and festival line ups aplenty. "MDMA" rumbles along somewhere between Soulwax, Kasabian and Queens Of The Stone Age, while "Teenage Father" ups the intensity with a punky thrum behind the raucous guitars and grinding synths, and then "Stray" finds the band mixing up the time signatures for the most adventurous cut on the record.
Minimal/Tech House
Alex Font's Acme sublabel Third Stream seeks to move away from hype and social media nonsense to deliver a truly underground offering for the switched on diggers, and that's just what you get with this second installment on the fledgling label. "Paraiso Artificial" is a supremely detailed, psychoactive bug-out of a minimal house track. Around the steady, slender beat there's an immersive world of rippling textures and nagging tones that delight the mind, perfect for the dancefloor of any long-rolling underground party. "Els Peluts" is a more functional track that places the emphasis on the beat, ably slotting itself into the mix with any switched on reductionist DJ.
Balearic/Downtempo
Is It Balearic? started the Uber sublabel up a few years ago, but 2017 has undoubtedly been the strongest year so far for the imprint. Following excellent stints from Serene, Wawawiwas and Bonnie & Klein, Max Manetti makes a debut appearance with a self-titled EP loaded with just the kind of slick, instrument-led island grooves we've come to expect from the Uber stamp. From the dense tropical trip of "Jungle Prayer" to the laconic guitar licks of "Dub Macumba", the cyclical mysticism of "Changuinola" on to "Garrison" with its considered piano chops and stiff breaks, this is an EP of proficient musicianship and eclectic funk for all manner of situations.
Techno
Having crept out of the tape undergrowth and respected haunts like Clan Destine and Always Human to earn more civilized recognition on BANK Records NYC and Bliq, Strahinja Arbutina makes the move to Vivod for yet more of that edgy, leftfield techno business that keeps mothers awake at night from worry. The grit, noise and distortion has been faithfully carried through from the cassette-based roots of Arbutina's sound, but these tracks are more than ready to do the damage in the dance (where you're less likely to find a tape deck). Hold on tight as the likes of "Way Ahead" give the sound engineer a fright when they think the system has overloaded.
Techno
Ikeaboy is the intermittent project from Damian Tubbritt, who first debuted the moniker more than ten years ago. It's been a long while since any fresh material from this deep cover curio of oddball techno hit wax, but now Wicked Bass have done the honourable thing and gathered up this excellent trio of tracks. "Shape Memory" plies a funky line in squelchy bass and jangling delay trills, while "Living In The Future" opts for a more mysterious, pad soaked trip into spooked out electro. On the B-side "Dayna" sports some forthright drum machine beats and epic sweeps of synths that only serve to confound any expectations you might have about the sound of Ikeaboy.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Italian duo Concret are the latest signings to Wonder Stories, following up previous releases for Toy Tonics and others to make their debut appearance on vinyl. The crisply produced, modern originals sit somewhere in between disco-infused house music and bombastic electronica in the Moderat vein, while the remixes throw a few more stylistic twists into the mix. Rodion brings a bold, bleepy analogue vibe to his version of "Ritorno", while Timothy Heretic Clerkin gets a little acidic in his revision of "Andata", rounding out a strong EP of maximal dance music for the modern age.
Techno
Well Street are back with their second instalment of broken beat techno on this 4-track Various EP. Loop LF returns to the fold after his impressive first release alongside label founders Glas Rm and Speak7, plus an unnamed track by a mystery artist.

Last Eight Weeks

Disco/Nu-Disco
Venezuelan groovesters Los Amigos Invisibles have been infecting the house music world with the Latin-flavoured disco and funk since the 90s, and still their sunkissed sound resonates with younger generations. On this occasion it's Balearic operation Apersonal that turn to brighter days with the six-piece, riding high with original jams "Stay" and "Rio Porque No Fue Un Sueno" on the A side. Meanwhile on the flip Ray Mang turns out remixes of the original versions that keep the feel-good ingredients intact, providing you with some surefire heat well in advance of the summer months.
Deep House
As well as steering Stripped & Chewed, Garrett David has been holding down a residency at Chicago's Smart Bar for some time. On a roll following an appearance on Distant Hawaii, The Time finds the producer in fine fettle with a classic approach to deep house clearly born out of the city he calls home. "The Time" is a shimmying jam powered by crafty dub processing and a steady hand on the arrangement, while "Sea Shell" is a more passionate affair that swoons through key changes. The Night Sea Journey remix of "The Time" is a more brooding affair punctuated by synth accents for a deeper end result.
Deep House
Deep House doesn't get deeper than Deep Explorer, Dubbyman's evergreen label transmitting out of Spain. On this latest 12", Allstarr Motomusic makes a welcome return after the first volume of Beauty & Simplicty back in 2015. This time they're working in collaboration with vocalist Sarignia Bonfa and the results are stunning. "Burning (In My Soul)" is a gorgeous, dubbed out slice of deep house with a true Midwest flavour, while "El Sonido Deepex" takes things into even more sultry territory. There's also space for downtempo reflection on "Space Of Life", but also watch out for the deadly remix of "The Whole Hood In My House" by CVO.
Minimal/Tech House
French producer Okain has long been entrenched in the minimal house movement, from time spent on Four:Twenty and Tsuba through to Memoria, No Fit State and now shoring up on Dogmatik. "Babylon" is a sharply focused workout with playful organ trills darting in and out of the mix, while "Radio Therapy" gets into a light-headed, bubbly state of mind thanks to some shimmering synth work. "Permeable" drops a little dubby magic on the track and "R4r5r6" finishes the EP off with a more muscular groover for when you need to keep the energy up on the dancefloor.
Experimental/Electronic
New Sydney-based label Deep Seeded has a clear mission to subvert conventions about club music, and new signing ptwiggs is right in there with the kind of otherworldly grime weirdness that you might find around the likes of Visionist, Rabit and other such sonic tinkerers. There's plenty of brutality at work on "Day Of Wrath", while "Exuviae" aims for something airier while getting sideswiped by distortion and trance leads. There are calmer moments, but it doesn't take long for intense levels of sound design, sampling and raucous processing to shake up the situation.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Emotional Rescue once more on the hard to find party curio tip, this time tapping up the work of one Ken Ramm whose 1984 burner "Spark The Universe" was previously fetching handsome prices online, and with good reason. The funk is loose and limber on the track, not least when it comes to the bassline and psyched-out worldly percussion. The dub mix pushes out into trippier territory, and then Emotional bossman Chuggy takes the reins on the flip for his own Disco mix of the original. Whichever version you plump for, you're onto a winner.
Balearic/Downtempo
Mark and Clive Ives have been prime examples of the second life reissue culture can give previously under-appreciated artists, and Emotional Rescue have been one of the key labels to support the enigmatic brothers from London. As with previous reissues, "A La Luna" presents the delicate, naive yet deep sound of Woo across a long form album that invites you on a curious journey of discovery. With a melodic instinct bordering on exotica, and unique range of instruments in the sound palette and a dreamlike approach to processing, there's nothing out there that sounds quite like Woo, and as ever it's a joy to delve into their sound world and leave more earthly familiarities behind.
Deep House
While they may have landed a fair while ago, it's great to see Emotional Response revisit Timothy J Fairplay's crucial early EPs with an absolutely on point remix package. Scientific Dreamz Of U brings his distinctive signal chain to "Stories Of Prison", using grinding synths and some snaking broken beats to create an early 90s trance mood to die for. Alessandro Parisi keeps things on a distinctly new wave tip for "Aim For The Yellow Sector", and Perseus Traxx brings a bold set of machine beats and technicolour synths to "Saco Bay". Antenna finishes the EP off by creating a winsome, wavey version of "Night Ferry" for sensitive souls to do the robot to.
Balearic/Downtempo
Out 2 are the product of a New York-based partnership between Jeremy Campbell and R. Zanzibar, who are just the kind of cult operators that Emotional Response so dearly love. With one foot in classic Talking Heads inspired funk variations and the other in the catch-all stylistic melee of the modern age, this is highly developed party music for well-read rug cutters to bust out shapes to. Just check the gorgeous synth violin styles on "Fire" or the heavy dub beatdown of "Rubber Hour" - these cats know what they're doing. All new-no-minimal-wave lovers take note!
Techno
Hong Kong based label Fragrant Harbour has thus far supported work from choice leftfield beat candidates such as General Ludd, Fulbert and Renart, and this time turns its attentions to international outfit LPZ. There's a modernist, UK-leaning style to their brand of mutant techno, focusing on crooked, moody rhythms that sup from the same font as Livity Sound et al. "Triangular" crashes and bangs its drums through blissful pads before "Heliopolis" pushes the kick to the foreground and dives into more meditative depths. "In Flames" rides some dreamy breakbeat tones and "Luminescence" rounds the EP off with another crafty pairing of off-centre beats and soundsystem-ready tones.
Deep House
The Finale Sessions Select series finds Michael Zucker steering his label into new, techy pastures with a host of esteemed guests on board. For this fourth round, he's called upon Kai Alce and Reggie Dokes to stand alongside him in demonstrating exactly what's great about contemporary house and techno. Alce is up first with "Scene 2", bringing a bubbly, sleek confection of machine soul to the table. Zucker gets things rolling along steady with the heady trip of "Summer Time", and then Reggie Dokes sends the record drifting off on a wonderfully crooked tip with "Running".
Disco/Nu-Disco
Mehmet Aslan and Miajica represent some of the finest operators in Basel, and their Fleeting Wax label is on hand to represent what's good in the Swiss scene and beyond. On this latest release they turn to Eva Geist, who has previously been spotted on Macadam Mambo and Elestial Sound with her beautiful mix of synths and vocals, striking a chord between noirish synth pop and heads down club music. "Blumareciano" is a wonderfully seductive, slightly spooky stew of a track which San Proper then injects with his usual freaky energy to make for a more uptempo party version. Then Geist's "Begum" stretches over the B-side in a bubbling blend of delayed voices, tribal percussion and general outernational surrealism.
Deep House
DJ Haus' ever-expanding deviant house music empire continues to impress with another installment of House Crime, this time committed by Szch. The 12" kicks off with the fast and freaky "Girl I Neva" which borders on juke levels of nagging sample chops, before the script gets crumpled up and tossed at the bin with the wonderfully scruffy rave deconstruction of "Peugeot 106 At Sunrise (Pingers Mix)". "Unconditional (Edit)" brings something a little smoother to the mix, although that underlying weirdness that comes with House Crime releases is still lurking in the wings. "UKLJUCEN TI JE BLUTUT" finishes the EP off in a rowdy yet reflective style - long may the strange tale of House Crime continue.
Deep House
Disco Fruit's sublabel continues to turn out smooth and slick deep, funky house, and this time around Tonbe is on hand with the goods to get the people grooving. "Broken Heart" features Rachel on vocals and some sweet saxophone, hitting the spot just right for universally appealing house music. "Street Groove" is a more forthright, clubby affair where the drums take the lead and the keys lock into a loopy late night roll. "Feel So Good" features some more choice vocal turns with urgent melodic hooks, and then "Something Jazzy" swoops in at the end with some proper New Jersey heat to get your body popping.
Deep House
Iron Curtis is back on Hudd Traxx with the second installment of his Lights EP. Much like the first round that dropped earlier in the year, the man like Johannes Paluka is on sterling form, dealing in the kind of refined yet earthen, deep but punchy house music he's built his name on to date. "Spectral" is the consummate opener, deft piano chords and rock solid drums with additional dubby FX pulsing through the mix. "Well Well Well" is a sunnier affair aiming for that euphoric terrace moment, while "See Ya" brings a rough swing to the party with a cosy, intimate line in soulful sample licks. "L&P" finishes the EP off with a warm, acidic bassline and more of that deep diving beatdown business.
Deep House
Fountain Of Chaos kicks off the Inextinguishable Fire label in style, purportedly transmitting from an undisclosed woodland location with a mission to bring you transcendental neo-pagan ritual music for the 21st century. "Primitive Megalopolis" definitely takes its cues from the likes of Jon Hassell with its rich, detailed sound bed of delicate pattering percussion, occasional flute breaths and slow, meditative rhythmic lurch. "Amaniyak Tree" flips the script with a fiery run of percussion that feels more like a Latin carnival throwdown, all tumbling ethnic instrumentation strapped to a discoid propulsion. It's a record of two very excellent, very different halves.
Techno
Mr Cloudy has a sizable back catalogue on labels like Entropy, Dubwax and Millions Of Moments, and now he's been snapped up by Local Traffic to impart his sumptuous dubby wares across four tracks. "Memoria I" and "Memoria II" let the A-side simmer in a bubbling broth of dub techno ambience, all shimmering chords undergoing heavyweight processing. "Sprayer I" is still immensely mellow, although a little rhythmic pulse creeps its way into earshot via the movement of the gravelly chords, and then "Sprayer II" rounds the EP off with something approaching a beat-oriented excursion through the same billowing clouds of dub techno finery.
Deep House
tape_hiss is a regular on Love Notes, having only recently dropped the excellent Cognitive Dissonance double pack. The Brooklyn based producer is back on the label with another four tracks of finest deep house for the club, kicking off with the emotive but peppy strains of "Jacob's Ladder" before drifting off into the calmer waters of "Maspeth Ave". "Life As An Echo" has an equally wistful ring to it, but don't be misled, this is still sturdy tackle for the dancefloor. "The Forests Of My Mind" finishes the EP off with a hazy trip through languorous pads and dusty drums for those tender moments of the night.
Deep House
After launching into Memory Box with aplomb on the deadly Acid Stomp 12", Robin Ball steps up on the London-based imprint once again with the saucy tones of his latest four track EP. "Drop It Down Low" and its accompanying dub mix are classy twists on the tech house formula that lean towards old-skool methods while keeping the sleaze factor ramped up high. "Remember" takes a more tripped out tribal approach, with the "Vibes mix" providing a more subtle twist to the warm, melodic undulations of the full fat version. It's an EP loaded with personality and flair for sophisticated dancefloors.
Dub
Following on from the impressive opening statement from Modern Manners, the second installment from the hitherto unknown outfit sees the sonic remit reaching out to other influences while retaining that poised lounge attitude that made the first record so instantly endearing. "Research" is a dub track in essence, sporting ample space in the mix, the odd conga roll and sparse chords calling out into a field of reverb and delay. "Can Maneras" is a more shuffling kind of smooth jazz that aligns with the classy licks of St Germain and the like. "Serate Cosmiche" finishes the EP off on a melancholic tip that puts the synths at the front of the mix for the first time.
Deep House
After the excellent turns from Jay Ka, Vincent Inc, Danijel Kevic and Lola Allen, the latest artist to appear on the ever productive Spanish deep house machine Minuendo is Kevin Kendall. With little previous form, Kendall doesn't take long to impress on the Go Easy EP, with the title track seducing instantly with its woozy tones and deft drum programming. "Second Chance" is a punchier affair, while "Remembering You" seems to tap into that Fred P way of doing things. "I Hesitate" is a warbling beauty to round off a resoundingly strong first EP for Minuendo.
Techno
REPRESS ALERT: The first in a series of special 12's to mark the 20th anniversary of the labels inception sees much sought after tracks from Mark Ambrose , Kumquat Kids and Steve O'Sullivan reissued in remastered and edited versions. Deep minimal rollers for those that know.
Deep House
The NicetraxUK label welcomes another three artists to get involved for the Soulfuricacid EP, bringing a range of straight up house gear to the table for the funkiest spinners to get busy with. Leeds based producer J Cub follows up appearances on Eclectic Avenue and Saints & Sonnets with the woozy, trumpet soaked grooves of "Mestizo". UK cheeky house mainstay Lil Mark steps up with another quintessential shuffler in the form of "Small Syndrome", and then Moodymanc adopts his Dubble D alias for a smooth cruising trip through plush synths and warm bass.
Deep House
With previous form on Colors and Love Fever, Remi Mazet returns on relatively new label Social Joy with a deep and refined trip through house music as played by a true musician. There's a dusky, cinematic quality to the whole EP, from the captivating intro to the sweet Rhodes soul of "Safran" and on to the broken wheeze of "Jazz E". "Shrine" has a more forthright club-ready veneer, while "Jammin" brings furthermore machine-oriented grooves, but at all times the devil is in the details, and this record is most devilish indeed. One for all those craving a little more subtlety and flair in their house music.
Minimal/Tech House
In the field of minimal house reissues, this is a big deal. Perlon main man Dimbiman doesn't appear on wax often, but when he does he makes it count. This early release on Baby Ford's seminal Pal SL was originally out in 1998, when minimal house was a vague concept at best on the most outer reaches of dance music. "Iso Grifo" itself remains a masterclass of spine-chilling space and perfectly strange sonic matter, while "Lava" pushes the notion of reduction dance music to its absolute limit. "Round" is an even more immersive affair that hides many subtle layers within its seemingly simple construct. Quite simply groundbreaking stuff, and highly sought after so don't sleep on it.
Minimal/Tech House
London minimal techno label Trapped Ldn turn their attention to new talent Rhys Samson, who gets freaky from the get go with the snaking beats and threads of psychoactive melodies and found sounds that make up the snappily titled "Paramedic To The Dancefloor". Cosmjn delivers a very different kind of remix of the original that has a more discoid flavour to it, although it maintains the late night trippiness that Trapped prefer overall. "Religious Clowns" is a deeper jam that seeks to soothe, albeit with plentiful rippling details still coursing through its veins, which Alan Castro capitalizes on with a remix that gets even more intricate and strange.
Balearic/Downtempo
Bonnie & Klein can often be found cruising round labels like Music For Dreams and Leng, imparting tender touches of Balearic finery for those who like to cruise on the slinkiest of 80s flavoured jams. They're on cracking form for this return to Uber, kicking off with the sultry "Tones Of Ballad", which gets a subtle beefing up from Drifts Projects on the remix. "Pretty Lake" is the cut for those who want to achieve pure transcendental bliss by way of canned slap bass and sustained chords, and then "Snowdrifts" finishes the EP off with a thoughtful piece shaped out by sweet piano and stirring strings.
Minimal/Tech House
The Untold Stories shine a light on another lesser known practitioner from the field of adventurous minimal techno. Sebastian Eduardo has been previously spotted on Crosiere Musique and Kommuna Tapes, so you can be assured of his quality, but this EP makes the perfect opportunity to hear just how rich his sound is. "Twelve D Soul Connection" shimmers with deft synth interplay and a dense fabric of crooked percussion. "UI Enhancement" channels the spirit of old-skool micro house to great effect, and then "Lyhne's Death (But The Flowers Are Laughing)" brings a tougher techno undercurrent to the trippy pings and wavy pads that dart around the top of the mix. The whole record is a richly detailed trip well worth your attention.
Techno
Valcrond Video continues its devilish run of form with this new single from Fallbeil, a project that has previously been spotted on New York Haunted, Return To Disorder and Mannequin. That should give you an idea of the kind of deviant sonics we're dealing with here, skirting around industrial, electro and techno with limber and dirty hardware jams for the sinister dancefloor. "Rolling Dutch" clearly nods towards The Hague way of doing things, all eerie pads, gnarly acid lines and rasping drums, while on the flip side "Rave On Plastic" pushes the bubbling monosynth action to the front of the mix.
Disco/Nu-Disco
NYC label HOMAGE continues a hot streak with their third project from UK producer JVXTA (pronounced Jux-tuh). After an excellent debut on his label Hardmatter, JVXTA gifts HOMAGE with four NY-inspired deep house cuts. "Brawn" is an immediate tone setter. The banging stand-out made waves overseas prior to it's online premier thanks to Cinthie, who pressed it to dub plate and played it as the opening track at her Boiler Room set in Berlin. The remaining tracks offer a look into JVXTA's unique tastes, and listeners will find themselves lost in quick-fire deep jazz, dreamy 80s tinged house, and a rolling tribal cut that we wished never ended. Serious selectors take note, HOMAGE is not messing around, and this is a project that you'll reach for again and again.
Deep House
Goshawk returns for Hudd Traxx 60th release with Erik Rico supplying the vocals. Get Up 2 Get Down is a peak time groover with plenty of funk to boot accompanied by some seriously soulful lyrics. Art Of Tones picks up the pace on the remix with a heavy bass line added with open hats to take things up a notch. Flip for the B side and find The Love Has Gone, a brilliantly made house track made for the dancefloor. Goshawk closes things out with a laid back deep house dub on B2.
Deep House
Adding yet another Montreal Artist to the Lazy Days roster. This time, we welcome Bowly aka OJPB. A respected name in the Montreal DJ scene, he's also known for his releases on Parage Music and more recently on Tensnake's great True Romance label.

After kindly stepping in on remix duties on our first Miskotom release Kito is back on Pleasure Unit with a nicley rounded EP that shows the full extent of his production skills. Houstrack does what it says on the tin and pumps it up in true old skool house style, Damp firecrackers sounds like it could come from a long lost Italian Library Lp. On the flip Never been to Ibiza beaches in 1997 is a nice laid back Balearic ode as you might expect, lastly Jungle Mantra is a dense tropical treat. Check for Kito's previous releases on diverse range of labels from Bahnsteig 23, Freerange,Dirt Crew,Hell Yeah and Bordello A Parigi

"We had a little pause on our release schedule, but without further delay we present with pleasure the next bomb by our good friend, DJ Spider! Thema 46 was hatched from someone so deeply ingrained in the underground that he barely needs an introduction. From his RA "label of the month" featured imprint Plan B Recordings, to his thoroughly played productions on labels such as Rekids, Killekill and The Trilogy Tapes, DJ Spider has been a mainstay on the murkiest, most disorderly dance floors for years. His sound is characterized by disjointed elements lurching around in a off-kilter yet magnetic way that forces you to move in ways you didn't know you could. From the hell scorched, pitch bent echoes of "The Final Revolution" to the lo-fi groove antics of "Distress Signal", DJ Spider proves once again that no one can do it as perfectly weird as he can. Text by: Nathan Levenson"
Techno
Kicking off Vivod's new pheasant series and making their debut on the label, UNI.OMNI are a Glaswegian duo comprising of MWX and Wave Energy Converter. Inspired by feelings of duality and the unpredictability of our dynamic world, UNI.OMNI respond with challenging dark electronic notes, driven vocals and expansive percussive backdrops. Their tracks emit contradictory feelings of chaos and calm, motion and stillness, frustration and excitement, whilst using the energy and turmoil of big city life as motivation for their first EP. "Acceptance Resistance" kicks things off with an experimental, cavernous foray that shifts to the rhythmic, subliminal undertones of "Metaphysical Lives". Both "Sequential Self" and "Viral Dread" are attuned to empowerment, exacerbated by the strains of the modern world, with strong vocals reiterating the need for resilience in the forgotten generation.

REPRESS ALERT: Arriving at their fourth release, Emotional Rescue's knowledge of forgotten musical gems and their commitment to give them the chance of wider appreciation they fully deserve cannot be in question! After digging out that Bob Chance classic, the focus switches to something of an equally balearic nature with the release of Jaki Whitren & John Cartwright's lost folk rock album International Times. Originally released as a private press on the obscure French label Living Records back in 1983, this eight track album is filled with dusty soul nuggets which are given extra life by the silky vocal stylings of Whitren - formerly a backing singer for Alan Parson. Opening track "Stay Cool" sounds quite ahead of it's time, whilst there are some true dancefloor gems for the more adventurous DJs out there, such as the title track and the laid back bump of "Go With The Flow."
Balearic/Downtempo
A seminal re-release: Whichever Way You Are Going You Are Going Wrong marks the start of a very deep, spiritual and hugely influential recording career for Mark and Clive Ives. Recorded in their own small Wimbledon terrace house in 1982 using nothing acoustic guitars, keyboards a small selection of wind instruments, it's a fusion of Balearic, psychedelic folk, proto electronic and ambient music that sits in such a unique world of its own, it still sounds fantastically fresh today. At points very lo-fi and fuzzy ("The Cleaner") at others very crisp, folky and pastoral ("CH Revisited"), imagine Robert Wyatt collaborating with Osunlade, or the Cinematic Orchestra hooking up with Brian Eno and you might get a slightly clearer picture. Only slightly though... These pictures aren't meant to be crystal. That's the beauty.
Ambient/Drone
REPRESS ALERTS: Lury Lech is a transdisciplinary artist of Ukrainian origin part of the few pioneers in the Spanish electronic and digital audio-visual scene that began to develop during the 80's. His open and unclassifiable style made of eerie sonic atmospheres, arrhythmic structures and dense textures create hypnotic ambiance and a new way to conceive experimentalism. Wrongly described as New Age music at that time, "Musica para el fin de los cantos" is a stunning and deeply emotive ambient work, that stares down at the eternal enigma, giving a glimpse of Iury Lech's classical music of the future. Iury recorded this blissful masterpiece in his Barcelona's studio in 1989. It was then published in 1990 by the unique Spanish label Hyades Arts. It's 2017 and it's time to unearth this magical piece of vibrating chords to please your sensitive yet hungry ears. Sit back and enjoy the meditative state.

"""REPRESS ALERT!!! It's 4 years after Casey Tucker's seminal release on For Those That Knoe and theimprint has decided to run another repress to humbly meet the demand. After a handful of releases on Probe under various aliases and before that on Plus 8 with no other than Ritchie Hawtin, Casey Tucker set up Fine Balance Recordings to showcase his unique melodic Tech House solo productions. The label released two EPs (The Carpet Dancer and Accumulated Knowledge) on 12", both bubbling well under the surface of the mainstream but changes in the music industry and the difficulties many labels felt at that time meant that the label was put on hold. Very much in demand today and extremely rare, FTTK has worked with Casey to dig out the original DAT recordings of those records as well as a fine selection of unreleased material to represent the second chapter of For Those That Knoe."

REPRESS ALERT: While it may still be relatively early days for Chicago-based label Perpetual Rhythms, already the quality bar has been set high with the first two releases and now HVL and CSPOK are on hand to push it even further. The former has already found form on Rough House Rosie, and here weaves a romantic take on deep techno and electro that will soothe the soul immeasurably with its healing pads and warming melodies. CSPOK resides over the flip with an equally dreamy vision of machine funk, keeping the beats secondary to the synths while drawing energy from an impressive arrangement of interlocking sounds.
Techno
REPRESS ALERT: Ghosts of the Sky is a new project from Taelue and Chicagodeep, the producers behind the occasional Perpetual Rhythms label. They begin in a murky mood with "Asylum", a low-slung, dub-influenced late night techno shuffler that makes great use of foreboding, horror-inspired chords, ghoulish electronics and delay-laden vocal yelps. It sounds like a contemporary take on the kind of gothic moodiness once offered up by Bauhaus. There's more of an unflustered aesthetic about "Squash", a throbbing deep techno jam that makes great use of undulating acid lines and picturesque chords. Flipside "Cycle Turning" closes proceedings by joining the dots between the yearning beauty of classic deep house, the far-sighted electronics of futurist techno and clattering intensity of analogue drum machine rhythms.
Deep House
REPRESS ALERT: It was undoubtedly a big moment for Hudd Traxx when they got Chez Damier on board to lend his vocal tones to Eddie Leader and Tomson's "I Am With You" back in 2014. A few years on and Huddersfield's premier house label are revisiting the modern classic with a raft of top shelf remixers on hand. Iron Curtis brings a bubbling, piano-enriched lilt to the jam, while Bristolian duo Outboxx go for an understated slice of straight up deep house. Ekkohaus gets busy with chunky tech house concoction, and then Sakro smooths the mood out with some jazzy keys and a steady groove.
International
REPRESS ALERT: From the label: "This EP is a dedication to the Amsterdam based Alkebulan Project. Philou and Villy are both members of this project, the project brings artists from Africa & African Diaspora together. The Alkebulan Project is on a mission to change the perception of Africa an it's citizens. Nigerian artist Villy and his group "Villy & The Xtreme Volumes" are on a mission to educate Africans with their message calling for a revolution in Africa, politically and socially in all aspects. Philou has a combination of Congolese, Nigerian and Sierra Leonean heritage and it is in these roots that he has built his sound. His passion for the continent of his ancestors is fervent and his projects are challenging commonly held preconceptions about Africa. His goal is to challenge negative stereotypes, by making African cultures more approachable through music. Much love for Rudy Asibey for founding The Alkebulan Project and bringing the artists together and many thanks to Marcel Vogel for giving us the opportunity to tell our story through."

REPRESS ALERT: Legendary House producers, Soichi Terada & Shinichiro Yokota are back to kickstart the first release on London based label, Hhatri. After almost 20 years, since their work on Soichi Terada's Far East Recording Label, their music has become some of the most highly sought after, forward-thinking masterpieces in House music. Featuring three of the finest, hard hitting house tracks from the Far East, fully remastered and packaged with a monstrous remix by none other than, Fabio Monesi, expect it to smash the dance floor apart.

REPRESS ALERT: 'Something From Nothing' is a four tracker that fuses techno sensibility with house swagger, a voice calling to Detroit's Second Wave while a hand beckons the shadowy waters of house. Hearts Of Darkness are immersed in late nights and smoke-filled basements, with past form seeing them play Fabric and Bugged Out!. An unhealthy loyalty to vintage hardware and long forgotten code means their music is analogue, not for fashion, but because it feels right. On the A, 'Sequential Circus' is purest machine funk as a driving bass bubbles into self-oscillation. Next, 'Just On For The Ride' bounces to a millennial deep house swing. Flip it for a dense future dub workout in 'Charlie Don't Surf,' then 'Hotshot' closes with a pad soaked vibe for the discerning warm up. A melting pot EP with all the right ingredients. 'Something From Nothing' opens the door to Hearts Of Darkness. Step inside.
Minimal/Tech House
REPRESS ALERT: After years of staggering second hand prices, London's Silverlining is addressing the demand for some of his early work by issuing a series of 12"s with some of the finest tracks from his mid '90s era. This time around the tracks come from releases on Wiggle and Wrong, and they sound like they haven't aged one bit. "Pleasures & Treasures" is an upfront burner steeped in 909 drums and hubby synth tones, while "Ni-Cd Deluxe" works up a nagging line in emotive electro. "Spannered In Dub" may well be the track that gets the most airings with its minimal disposition, strong rhythm section and utterly addictive groove.
Minimal/Tech House
REPRESS ALERT: Trelik reach into their recent archives with a much needed repress of Whalesong, the label's 2011 debut from UK producer OCH. With a compulsive passion for the dying art of crate-digging combined with a love for modern synthesis techniques the now Sweden based OCH manages to put together a 12" that could easily be described as psychedelic Chicago. "Whalesong" is a pulsating floor work-out which references the US greats whilst building an emotive sub-aqua soundscape. "Blind is The Wind" follows with a sneaky chord driven spoken interlude which creates an air of tension before climaxing into "Last Chance Saloon".

Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT: With two massive reissues from Suns of Arqa and Jaki Whitren under their belts, the fledging label Emotional Rescue have come up with the goods once again, with this remastered reissue of incredibly rare 70s psyche-funk from Bob Chance. Two versions are included: the original 7" version, driven along by a razor-sharp guitar riff and sweetly lamenting lyrics, topped off with weird cosmic synths and galloping rhythm. However, the real gem is the edit entitled "Wild It's Broken" which sharpens the focus of the guitar and adds some serious kick to the drums to create a beefy counterpart to the new age original.
Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT: This time on transparent vinyl. Amsterdam dwelling editor par excellence Em Vee took the solo reigns on the inaugural Lumberjacks In Hell - and truly excelled with a great reimagination of "Miss You". The second release on the label sees the German share duties with Spanish edit demon Rayko, with the Rare Wiri boss hogging the A Side. First up is an expert rearrangement of Candi Staton's cover of the Bee Gee's standard "Nights On Broadway" which strips the track of its orchestral leanings to focus on the groove! Following this is a meaty take on a classic, with Barbara Keith's cover of "All Along The Watchtower" reinforced with some bottom end bump. Em Vee spreads a special disco version of Alma Lee's late 70s Philly delight "Gimme Your Love" with an extended intro that fully displays his edit talents.
Deep House
REPRES ALERT: Dutch producer Casper von Banniseht sidles over to Bristol stable Boogie Cafe to present a three-track 12" of impeccable dusty house grooves imbued with that Detroit-esque feeling that oozes out of a Moodymann or Theo Parrish record. "Bossa" revels in choppy broken beats and plenty of choice samples in a most loose and soulful of concoctions, while "Lazy" cools down to a simmer with subtle disco licks making the most immersive of deep house jams. "Lone" meanwhile plies a more chipper trade with its hooky chord stabs, but still the vibe remains smooth and laid back, just how the Boogie Cafe crew seem to like it.
Disco/Nu-Disco
REPRESS ALERT: As Emotional Rescue continues to deliver the goods for those who love discofied rarities from the 70s and 80s, here comes this EP from Kevin Harrison, originally released in 1982 and worth a pretty penny second hand. It's a wistful, proggy kind of groove that finds Harrison's voice lost in an alien phaser while the live band feel gels with synthesiser parts for a fluid kind of cosmic goodness. There's simply no arguing with the plush melodic wonderment of "Views Of The Rhine", while "Fly" is the jam the party DJs will reach for, not least for its slinky bassline. Amazing.

Super Tuff brings the feel-good house hit to keep you warm this Autumn, drawing on a range of artists who know how to lay down steadfast club tackle. Luvless bring an unabashed 90s flavour, all sweet piano chords and stiff drum machine rhythms, while Long Island Sound take things deeper with the dreamy "I Chose You Because". Tommy Vicari Jnr spices things up with "Pacific Stri", firing off a wealth of African percussion while keeping a firm grip on the melodic warmth inherent on the rest of the record.

REPRESS ALERT: With just one 7" release to their name in the form of the 1981 release, Jive Baby On A Saturday Night, the cult of The Jellies was possibly accidentally assured with the long lost song being rediscovered by collectors and championed by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore no less. Picked up and reissued by the stellar Trunk Records in 2010, the B-side cut, however, was sadly overlooked. Now Emotional Rescue are proud to license The Conversation and remaster it especially for this rerelease. Based around a simple drum and bass rhythm, interspersed with crowd noise, playful female vocal yelps and sprinkled with dub effects thrown in to the mix and you wouldn't probably think too much would be going for a track that the band put together in the last two hours of their studio time after Jive Baby had been completed. However, what you get is a killer gem of pop-punk-dub oddness that gets your head nodding to its infectious, repetitive rhythm laden with effects. With just this one (perfect) track available for license it seemed only right to hand it over to the in-house production team, Apophenia, to do their increasingly trademark dubbed out reworking, this time in the form of a true, but respectful "Version" for the flip. With both members of The Jellies sadly now living overseas this piece of early '80s British dub as it were, can now be fully treasured for posterity while also, proving a nice little smokers delight.

REPRESS ALERT! My Love Is Underground return with only their second release of 2013, with MLIU15 introducing the sounds of Dungeon Meat. The new collaborative endeavor between MLIU regular Brawther and Tristan Da Cunha of Back To Basics fame, Dungeon Meat live up to the brash nature of "The Fuck Off Track" with heavy hitting percussion driven house at it's finest. Look out for a label of the same name from Dungeon Meat later this year. Face down Ukrainian producer SE62 returns for MLIU duty for a third time with the hook heavy deep house burn of "True Force".

REPRESS ALERT : After landing his malfunctioning PX-4000 on the purple planet, Captain DMX steps out of the smoldering cockpit. After barely setting foot on the dusty landscape, the Captain is startled by deep thudding from over the hills. Dragging his oxygen pack with one hand and his atomizer with the other, he sets off in search of the other-wordly din. Over the hill his pupils adjust to the stroboscopic lightning and below him lies a sea of strange creatures moving together as one body. A cosmic sermon takes place under the three suns in the sky, mechanical and stuttered frequencies set a manic pace and drive the dark creatures back and forth. Captain DMX sighs a heavy breath and starts to descend into the fray....

Faze Action Records', (FAR), next release unearths the disco wonder of unreleased music by Andromeda Orchestra. The lead track has been expertly remixed by legendary DJ Nick the Record, extending the percussion, bass, keyboard sections and then teasing in the vocals towards the end to turn the track into a peak time disco burner which sits comfortably alongside Disco old and new. On A2 we have High Steppin' which see's Andromeda Orchestra heading for a more stripped down instrumental track, tight percussion and keys drive home another floor filler. B1 We have the original mix of "Get Up & Dance", staying true to a classic disco arrangement. With B2 ,Andromeda Orchestra exit with a more laid back funk/disco groove perfect for the warm up.

Transmitting treacherous local energy into his new creative undertakings, Bogdan now joins the Not An Animal force keeping the flame well and truly ignited. A'Parovoznikov' fires across all cylinders with a vigorous Italo-arp bass motor, driving it further down the cosmic highway, engine doused in fully-lubricated synth-pad oil. Justin Van Der Volgen's remix swiftly rips the wing mirror clean off with a zealous two-to-the-floor-hitting blowout. On the B, 'Listopad' cruises top down with a more Balearic approach. A dreamy square bass glissades alongside percussive hats and succulent pads that shuffle within the horizon, whilst computer bleeps chomp and add an intensifying clarity. Kito Jempere's remix closes the release with his first contribution to the label. It lifts up the original and drives towards sundown into moonlight. Warping bass tones squelch against fetching stabs and brash breaks keeping this track fully pulsating.

Verdant Recordings 3rd EP is a collaboration between the rising talent Aos and Sonitus Eco. A debut release on vinyl for Aos who has previously released digitally on Blankstairs with the enchanting 90 East minialbum. Sonitus Eco should be well know for his own Harr label and for his majestic ambient and dub techno projects with Silent Season. On this release both bring their love of deep atmospheric and melodic techno for two original works which are then reconstructed by each other. Its fascinating to hear how these tracks reshape the original signatures. An EP that reaches for the stars and yet is subtly introspective and melancholy. 180g pressing an once again the artwork features the beautiful colours of Sophie O'Leary.

124 Recordings know how to put together a deep house compilation, and they're sounding fierce on this latest, appropriately titled Levels Up. The jams come heavy and funky from a range of on-point operators, leading in with Tom Jay's quintessential New Jersey bump n grind on "Hanging On". David Moran is a little more shadowy but no less groovesome, while Nicola Brusegan takes things on a sweet and smooth tip. Across the whole double pack there are classically informed jams to satisfy the most weary deep house heads, but keep an ear out for the old-school flavoured heft of Freak D's "Power Of Bass", which should get some seriously jacking airtime in the right kind of dance.

It's a thoroughly classy slice of minimal house imbued with all kinds of organic elements to soothe limbs and massage minds amongst the up all night contingent. Font then takes over for the B side with three tracks that veer between classic minimal techno, tough jacked up house and an experimental skit to finish the record off.

Akumandra is the Mexican imprint of Sainte Vie. The label promotes the exceptional artists riding the sub current of multicultural electronic music and, after 3 years of sharing its music for free, it's about to release on vinyl for the first time. Sainte Vie's music is a prime summary of what it means to hear in a post-genre universe. As trends are quickly rendered obsolete, the accumulation of culture debris is becoming more significant in relation to the producer - the ability to create a nostalgic blur through a composition of artifacts and interpretations. Paying homage to this, Estacion Inmortal (Sainte Vie's first EP) produces the afterglow associated with an auditory epiphany. The combination of mellow interludes, earthy chord progressions and acoustic-synthetic equilibrium have the capacity to conquer both communal space and solitude.

Roberto Aglieri is a noted Italian flutist and composer, and his 1987 album Ragapadani stands as one of his finest achievements. Archeo Recordings are ever hip to the finest treasures hidden away in the folds of esoteric music, Italian or otherwise, and have done a great service in reissuing the album so that it might reach a wider audience. On this limited white marble edition of the album, Aglieri's flute sounds haunting and evocative over the range of delicate synth treatments, largely orbiting the minimal realm but with a naive charm that makes the music wholly accessible at the same time. Soothing, thoughtfully crafted music for tender times.
Ambient/Drone
Mary Anne Hobbs has been waxing lyrical about this sophomore collaborative set from Arovane and Hior Chronik, and it's easy to see why. The album's genius lies in the duo's atmospheric combination of crackling field recordings, lucid electronic instrumentation, and the melancholic poignancy of classic piano motifs. While they're naturally more at home delivering atmospheric, slowly unfurling ambient pieces - and there are plenty scattered across the album - the production pair's more up-tempo efforts are generally equally as impressive. Tracks such as "Lightbeams", 'Perpetum II" and "Eines Klein Lied", where their beautiful music is underpinned by bustling and bubbly machine percussion, are particularly impressive.

OCH's release rate has been sturdy since he first emerged in 2010, but he's hitting his stride like never before as he follows up last year's "Love Unconditional" for London's Trelik with a new double 12" EP for his own Autoreply label. All the hallmarks of his sound are in place, from intricate and delicate melodic threads to immersive house and techno rhythms, all draped in the kind of atmospheric finery that can't fail to transport you to otherworldly places. By keeping a cool head about what to use and when, OCH has once again demonstrated his talent for reduced but verdant dance music that speaks volumes without having to shout.

Autoreply begins its 10th year with a 12" from one of the scenes favourite ambassadors, Dana Ruh. Equally happy co-running Brouqade and her own Cave Recordings, dropping LP's for Underground Quality or stepping up to Ostgut Ton & Cocoon, hers is a story of emotive, reduced floor-theory. The "Round 2 Reel EP" delivers three such movements kicking-off with an undeviatingly playable A-Side displaying her prowess for swinging, stripped-back house complete with discreet sound design and compulsory bass. The B-Side concentrates on the deeper, dubbier aspect of her sound displaying unparalleled levels of warmth and texture. Written & produced at Polynomstudio, Berlin, recorded to tape for your listening pleasure!

The Blind Box Series continues its quest into the heart of the minimal house scene with this stunning take from newcomer Oddmann (also spied recently on Half Baked). There's a whiff of electro running through "Pure-T" even as the drums kick with 4/4 precision, while "200hz" gets into a more classic shuffle with wonderfully delicate bleeps and squiggles filling in the space. One suspects there's some high end gear powering these rich, globulous sounds. "Tendax" is another utterly classy cut that uses some familiar tropes but cuts through the noise with an all important air of mystery that reaches beyond basic club fodder to impart a deeper, abstract message.

Those Maltese bad boys Owen Jay and Melchior Sultana are back on their trusty Batti Batti steed with another sublime drift through velvety-smooth deep house cuts for discerning heads. "August" lays the pads on thick, making the groove all that sharper when they drop out, but it's not long before that filter opens back up to let the blissful tones back into the mix. As the name suggests "Acid Carpaccio" is a rougher concern, but it's still finished off with a classy finish and one eye on the deep end of the dance. "Smoked" notches up the swing and aims skywards with an uplifting, contemplative jam like this formidable duo have forged their name on.

This reissue of Without Me serves as a potent reminder of the gift the man has for heartfelt melodies and unfussy compositions that speak a pure and instinctive message from beginning to end.

Following their massively well-recieved debut release with Moroccan musician Majid Bekkas, Banana Hill return with music from slightly closer to home. Manchester-based drummer, DJ & producer Contours joins multi-instrumentalist XOA for a collaborative 12" of deep, percussive afrocentric house grooves. "Too Much Talking" is a cosmic dancefloor heater, with dubbed-out synths, vintage guitars, fat live bass and as the name suggests, a talking drum that underpins the whole track. Things head a little deeper on "Express" with rolling percussion, heavy sub and subtle influences of afrobeat & jazz.
Techno
Bliq continues its quest to mine the deepest shades of techno with this release from Iakovos, who had previously appeared on the label as LowJac and in the formidable duo Deemonlover. This is sharply focused mind music layered with subtle detail and rich textures perfectly honed for hazy hours at the far reaches of the party. "Singers" melds hypnotic pads with gossamer-light threads of breakbeat and warm synth pulses, while "Evil Flower" pushes a tougher rhythmic agenda without losing the ethereal atmosphere. "Adidas People" rides on a surging kick drum pattern, but leaves ample room for a distant drone, and then "Hackney Tower" heads into edgier territory with all manner of obtuse angles and unnerving sound effects pivoting around the insistent drum core of the track.

It's that time of year when thoughts turn to lazy afternoons down the beach, early evenings sat watching White Isle sunsets and sticky nights of loved-up debauchery. In other words, it's the perfect time to dive into the latest volume in the consistet Balearic compilation series. There's naturally much to admire in the now-familiar Cafe Del Mar/Cafe Mambo style, from the horizontal, flute-laden samba shuffle of The Madrigal's "The Ride to the Moon" and Shay Lovers exceedingly drowsy "Black & White", to the warm chords and head-nodding beats of Steve Cobby's remix of "Tradewinds" by Penelope Antena, and tropical exuberance of Maajo's "Musa Paradisa". Best of all, though, is Mudd's impeccable "Mix for Emma" of Zee Erf's blissful cover of "Southern Freeez", which is one of the most stunning tracks you'll hear all year.

Neddy Smith seems to be just another one of those smooth operators consigned to early 80s history on the excellent Delirium label, but lucky for us Best Records are on hand to dig him out and bring "Give It Up" to a whole new crowd. This is crisp, laid back boogie of the highest caliber, with the title track in particular nailing everything we love about this inimitable era of funk. There's more than whiff of Luther Vandross about the opening strains of "Give It Up", but "Liberated Woman" strikes out on its own with a more ballad-like tone but no dip in the all-important get down.

Bass
Manchester-based producer Anz makes her release debut here with some bold meditations on where bass music is at right now, making a strong case for how much talent is coming out of the her city at present. "Panrico" is a killer opener, rocking a set of steel drum licks before a mighty fine drop into globulous bass and frantic drums. "Clang" aligns itself with the underground grime scene, although the beats also sport a touch of B-more booty about them. "Fencin" makes the most of massive monosynth tones in a distinctly purple-tinted dubstep throwdown that would have Joker nodding his approval no doubt.

After his appearance on Born Free Records, Rollerboys Recordings, and Rett I Fletta, Johannes Wilkstrom aka Yourhighness contributes to Cocktail d'Amore Music with Stratofortress. The Berlin based imprint gathered techno guru Rrose, Born Free Records owner Samo DJ, and international Japanese wave representative Gonno, to offer an EP with a wide range of interpretations of the title track. The original mix is an acid based, industrial influenced techno banger. Highly energetic, for sweaty late-night dance floors. On the same side Samo DJ transforms the techno blaster into a funky EBM ballad, characterized by a deep male voice and a breakbeat groove. Rrose is on remix duty on the B-side. Stratofortress suddenly turns into a dubby, everlasting build up, that eventually implodes in the depth of a black hole. Closing the EP Gonno offers a slow-mo rework.

Liza's voice sits perfectly alongside the Caribbean textures, and the driving drums that Trinidadian Deep is known for. Bryan's labels have long been a go to for lovers of quality and sophistication and this new one is no different.
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
Formerly of France, now based in Brazil, D3 Elements returns with their second instalment of the "Beatz" series, this time with jazz artist, Bruno E, also hailing from Brazil. Bruno, who has been producing and performing since the late 90s, has worked with and remixed the likes of Silhouette Brown and Gilles Peterson, as well as releasing albums in his own right. This limited colour 10" release features three versions of the track Ventos Do Outono, (loosely translated to Autumn Winds). First up is drummer, composer and producer, Pat Van Dyke, taking a break from composing the soundtrack to Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee", with a breezy, laid back version of the original. Featuring lush horns and flutes, along with vintage keyboards, the track urges us to "Get Down", while straddling the boundaries of jazz and golden era hip-hop. Still on the A side, it's Bruno's turn, delivering a wonderful broken beat track. Full of beautiful keys, strings and intricate rhythms, this track is reminiscent of the sound championed by Kaidi Tatham and Nu Era. Flip over to the b side, and techno legend, Kirk de Giorgio takes us on a deep, futuristic ride. The track starts off with banging drums and a pulsating bass line, priming us for the cosmic pads and keys to come as the UK producer takes us on a journey to outer space and back. Another quality release from Bryan Hervieu's label, with three diverse versions of the same track, sure to appeal to a wide variety of tastes.
Deep House
After shifting through a few different monikers the last year Deepblak Rhythm Czar Afrikan Sciences returns to form. Laced always with his elastic funk forward grooves the "Res??pras?de?" EP continues to build on his legacy. One that has consistently morphed diasporic rhythms into new colors. Creating new space on the dance-floor as well inside the mind. Four independent yet intertwined tracks all meant to make you oscillate inward outward.

The sporadic and limited edition Especial Specials returns after a yearlong hiatus by teaming up with DEEK Recordings to bring their unique covers Covered In Gloria compilation to vinyl. Featuring label boss Bullion on A&R, production and artistic duties, alongside label favourites Thool, plus fellow luminaries Red Axes, Reckonwrong and newcomers Alaskalaska. The premise for the project couldn't be more straight forward, giving peers and friends a free reign over who they reinterpret. Overseen by label head Nathan Jenkins (Bullion) the project is pulled together for release by DEEK as a now annual jam. First up, the Red Axes duo just keep on keeping on. Their retake of a miss-hit from Ms K Wilde is a surprise catch and the reposte to the often strained, cooler-than-thou machinations of the music scene. It's the groove and that makes you moove. Next is the highly talented, but still underrated Thool with their stunning Francophile take of Joe Jackson's classic Stepping Out. A mix of pop perfection and Balearic love. The side closes with art-pop exposers, Alaskalaska, giving Edwin Collins' career returning hit a warm twist and hip-shake that is hard to resist. Of course Mr. DEEK is here somewhere and Bullion's cover of J.J.Cale's ode to forgetting life's troubles heralds exactly why Covered In Gloria works. A perfect marriage of respectful update, killer production and song-craft, fun and letting it all hang out. To close then comes another of London's rising natural talents. After stand out releases for Pinkman and Whities, here Reckonwrong turns it all on its head with his warped reversion of Berverley Craven's torchbearer. I'll be right here waiting
Balearic/Downtempo
Especial Specials and DEEK Recordings return with the second vinyl sampler of the Covered In Gloria album. As before, DEEK's Bullion pulls together the label's alumni and homies; a gamut of talent and styles feature, from Suzanne Kraft, Minor Science, Sultan Shakes, Eyedress and Geller & Kaya. Diego Herrera's Suzanne Kraft alter ego has become a cause celebre of the ambient revival of the last few years. However, his early releases and remixes show a talent for beats as well as atmospherics. His cover of Andreas Dorau's Nordsee is all that, taking the Die Doraus Und Die Marinas original's whimsy production to embrace Krautrock motorik rhythms and warm vocal tones. Accompanying this is a heartfelt version of Blue Niles' classic Heatwave. Appearing on their beautiful debut Walk Across The Rooftops, doing the song justice is a challenge. However, Minor Science rework the Japanese fused original with a respectful retake, with plink-plonk percussion and delicate vocals giving a perfect restraint alongside a touch of modern minimalism. Starting the final side is the most club friendly cover from the tassle-haired newcomer, Sultan Shakes. After turning heads with his debut Interstellar Love, he returns by paying respect to A Guy Called Gerald's anthem via a twisted, electro-psychedelic reversion for the dance. A left turn follows from Manilla's Eyedress with his exploratory acoustic love ode, Girls. The perfect counter song taking the Beastie Boys' original to surf's up, obscure lo-fi wanderings, fitting exactly what Covered In Gloria is all about. Respect, with a smile. To finale is Geller & Kaya. Having appeared on DEEK's previous covers opus, Extraordinary Renditions, their pop-reggae homage to Wham's ubiquitous Rap is put through the echo chamber by respective label heads & cohorts (Bullion and Chuggy) for a cod'n'chips tinged Dub rewiring, where mixing desk becomes instrument and points to possible collaborations to come. Do you enjoy what you do...?
Deep House
Before his debut studio full-length, Dubbyman racked up a remarkable discography of dance singles and remixes. He has been away for a little while, but his new 10-tracker album is the perfect tool for him to make his anticipated return. "Deep is dead" is a fascinating mix of organic and synthetic, past and present, smoothness and eclectic, darkness and brightness. The Spanish producer has veered away from those dub-heavy and dark atmospheric deep stylings, and instead has ventured into much classic house and musically territory. Almost all songs are soaked in warm chords, dreamy leads and gripping melodies. Dubbyman also offers an immense and stunning roster of credits and guest musicians such as Kuniyuki Takahashi, Leo Gunn and George Btp aka Allstarr Motomusic, just to mention a few.
Bass
The second release from De Grey introduces the debut 12" from Yorkshire native Jack Angle WEEK-END, opening proceedings, with skeletal kicks and jacked percussion combining to maximize damage on the dancefloor. 6PNHHPE follows up with brooding acid and sub bass pressure. On the flip, STABILIZER lightens the mood with lush synths whilst SEITA rounds things off with playful melodies juxtaposed with an industrial framework.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Having busted out a staggering amount of edits for Disco Fruit over the past few years, Loshmi makes his vinyl debut for the label with the Drugstore EP, and he's packing even more of that feel-good funk in the process. The title track is a heavy, sample-a-delic jam with a deadly flute lead and heated organs, while "Wsoop Wsoop" opts for an outright boogie freakout of the highest calibre. "Sweet And Nasty" heads in the direction of Salsoul Records to inject some Philly heat into the house beats on offer, and then "Still Loving You" rides the EP out on a sweet, soulful tip.

The second installment from the Lap Top Less Dance trilogy. Capablanca's DIY psychedelic industrial disco 'exorcism de style' gets revisioned here by YPY transmuting Top Less into a lisergic overdose, Alessandro Adriani, whose mean mechanic stomper version takes Flores Feias collab by the hand (chained) to a skinhead dark room, and Lipelis' magic wand converts Lap Dance into a Russian bathhouse sex-o-ddisey weirdo monster hit.

UK Garage
Dat Pressure keep digging back into the archives of main man Noodles with some of the highly sought after heat that has been fetching silly money on the second hand market. When it comes to the darker end of the garage spectrum, some of these jams are right up there with the best and so getting a chance to lay your hands on a stone cold jam like "99" is a dream come true for any true 2-step head. Beats and bass just don't come sicker than this. "Black Puppet" meanwhile lays down the law as far as wobble bass goes, proving just how pioneering Noodles was with his work as Groove Chronicles.
UK Garage
As well as revisiting some classic material from the archives, Noodles is using his revived Dat Pressure label to push new productions as well, and the good news is his fresh takes stand up to the old-skool jams easily. "Watch It" is embellished with bluesy chords and delicate touches, but underneath it the power of the bass is undeniable. It's moody but soulful in the same vein as the vibe that inspired dubstep initially, and likewise "Ur Name & Number" fuses that perfect mix of rudeness and sensuality that makes for the best kind of dark garage club banger.

Second transmission from Distant Worlds comes courtesy of Derek Carr (For Those That Knoe, Where We Met, Why So Series). His music has been turning heads since the turn of the millenium but only in the last few years has he been getting the recognition he deserves. His productions have a timeless, celestial quality and reward multiple listens; there is always a hint of subtle beauty about his work and this is no exception. 'Scisor' and 'Wraith' are built for the club whilst 'Fading Fast' and 'Sunrise in System' will work equally well in a club or for home listening. More than a nod to Detroit in these productions but all unmistakeably Carr productions...

"[Emotional] Especial returns in 2018 after a supremely quiet 2017 as batteries were recharged and life happened. In mind is the introduction of new duo, Weird Weather and their debut EP, Bamboo Room. Slotting perfectly in the label family with 4 cuts covering dark basement club music through to calmer, balmier moments. LJ Horstman and D Thornley, conjoined metal nerds from opposite ends of the London suburbs who bonded over love of dub mixes, create Weird Weather. This debut collects tracks from four years of jamming, constructing, dubbing and re-dubbing. Cheap synths played with strict finger musicianship; deep bass over 4/4, clattering Roland drum boxes and analogue pads and submerged vocals calling out over the noise of the digital Coffee Maker. Full spectrum of influences are apparent for the heads with nods to Yello, Jah Shaka and the Horn "Megamixes" of Frankie Goes To Hollywood and ZTT alumini - all go in the dub blender with a slug of 80s rock bombast. 4 demos passed down and the mixing desk skills of homeboys Mr TJ Fairplay and Mr J Paton are added for good measure. To start, Sequence 5 is a one-take body-music desk dub. The relentless riding rhythms and faint harmonics pull you to the floor in unknown fashion. Trash Dolphin follows as an aquatic New-Wave meets NY-house in-joke that went too far. Sample bits out the window to reach nirvana. Taking the flip is Bamboo Room. A sub 90 bpm, euphoric mind-melter for the post Ambient House generation. The true winner with tranquil(ity) bass and psychedelic (research) lab trip shifts. Seamlessly completed with the poolside 'Ormus Mix' for the suave recliners. Thanks to Eric Dan for phantom support via the LCD screen. Onwards and upwards. "

Following the 'Screaming Ghosts' collection highlighting the music of C Cat Trance, Emotional Rescue and Malka Tuti return with the first of two EPs where the band's music is given over to a selection of artists, friends and collaborators for reinterpretation, re-editing, replaying and remixing to provide a modern outlook on the bands mixture of East meets West musicology. Very much the vision of Malka Tuti and close to their ground-breaking releases of the last two years, the genius is out of the bottle with a who's who representing both labels. First, Autarkic go supergroup in enlisting Tel Aviv's White Screen for a cover of Screaming (To Be With You). Totally replayed, this is the perfect opening, with wide-screen production, updated arrangement and decimal delivering vocals setting the standard. Following comes an effusive, simple and on-point remix of Dalbouka by the inspiring ledge that is JD Twitch. Platitudes aside - enough has been said by others - but the fact Twitch is as enthusiastic and driven as ever is testament enough. The simplicity and genius of his rework, where 909 is added alongside fx to speaker shaking effect, shows that less can be much more. In Sneaker (DJ) we have a name moving steadily from the (cult) periphery to become one to consistently check and respect. Following EPs for Rat Life and Bahnsteig 23, the singularity of his reversion is audacious and entrancing. Brevity, purity and ultimately intensity of percussion, horns, bell and guitar. Enter. To end volume 1 comes Die Orangen. Kris Baha and Dreems' bromance of Aussie label (red) heads, united in post-industrial explorations. With a deep, expansive album incoming on Malka Tuti, their brooding, rattling, ghostly mix is one for late night thinkers, that steps up to encapsulate an EP that successfully marries old and new, bringing C Cat Trance's music present.
Post Rock/Experimental
Volume 2 of retakes of C Cat Trance's unique post-punk meets world beat brings the collaboration between Malka Tuti and Emotional Rescue to a close. Here again, the label's call in a selection of heads to re-envisage a modern vision of the music to present a perfect representation for today. Starting with Red Axes retake of an almost untouchable classic, the booming, sound system-quaking version of Shake The Mind is a heads down mover that should add to their reputation and finally give DJ's a follow up to utilise. Next, Jamie Paton gives the perfect trance-inducing, dubbed edit of Take Me To The Beach. Looping the drums and horns infinitum, building through repetition was never truer, before release. His individual take on remixes is again displayed, deep dubs from the brethren. To close the 2 EPs, the final side is given to a meeting of older and established artist and new, upcoming, but already respecting crew. In Prins Thomas, the psychedelic protagonist of the heralded northern disco lights, his name was first to be penciled. His live, drum-heavy reversions have become trademark and in Sudaniyya, it's all there. Subtle, confident and alluring, Thomas builds to a steady jam of machine and man, letting it all hang and simply, groove along. In finale, Khidja bring in friend and fellow Romanian production rising star, Borusaide to cover Simple Helen. A slow-burning ode in original form, their genius reversion captures the essence and much more, giving C Cat Trance's music a whole new lease, while presenting their production talent and musicianship. As was the hope and intention of these updated versions - Re-mixes for the 21st Century - with a nod to the past, but feet firmly in the future. Play loud and play out.

Coldwave/Synth
Emotional Rescue delves deep in to the past with the release of the first ever recordings by UK post-industrial, ambient pioneers O Yuki Conjugate (OYC). Recorded in Nottingham in 1983, the EP's four tracks showcase OYC's early sound: a beat-driven, lo-fi that places them alongside the early British electronic pioneers. OYC, celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, are known for their "dirty ambient" sound - but it wasn't always thus. In their earliest incarnation OYC explored a more industrial approach characterised by tortured analogue drum machines, one-finger synth lines, played bass, tape loops and even flute. This naive sound template lasted until their debut album 'Scene in Mirage' (1984) before being jettisoned in favour of more ambient explorations. The story behind these recordings is one of brotherly love between bands. OYC swapped time in their rehearsal space for a day's use of a four-track cassette portastudio owned by their associates, Metamorphosis. Three of the tracks included were recorded on May 1st 1983 at The End Room (literally a studio at the back of one of OYC's parents houses) with the remaining track (live favourite "The Clattering Song") being produced a couple of months later. To date OYC have remained largely unknown in the UK due to their wilfully obscure approach. They have released a series of very well regarded studio albums and innumerable spin-off and side projects that has recently seen a revival of interest in their early years, including appearances on Cherry Red's compilation of formative UK electronic scene 'Close to the Noise Floor' and Optimo's compilation of Fourth World-style music 'Miracle Steps'. Accepting their fate as musical outsiders, OYC continue to make music with little reference to the wider world. This EP makes a fine addition to that body of work.

Emotional Rescue returns to the music of "dark ambient" pioneers O Yuki Conjugate (OYC) with the reissue of their debut album, 'Scene in Mirage'. Released in 1984, it's post-industrial; cold wave overtures mixed with an ambient oeuvre created a compelling album that has gained cult status. Recorded in a four-track basement studio in Leeds it showcases two very different sides to their sound. Side E follows the earlier recordings of their debut cassette release "Untitled" (ERC051), with use of analogue drum machines, synthesizers, bass an the ingenious use of tape loops made from audio cassettes stolen from local public libraries. Side O however, points to the future development of the band with experimental sound collages. Built from percussion, voice, flute and drones created using a home made digital delay with a 1.6 second sampling feature for instant soundscapes. At the touch of a button this was DIY at its core when at the time most samplers cost more than a four-bedroom house in Knightsbridge. Quickly selling out in its original pressing, inexplicably their record label decided not to re-press, so an expanded cassette version called 'Scene In Mirage/Soundtracks' was re-released on the band's own Final Image label with an accompanying video. Here, Emotional Rescue's re-issue combines the best of both versions in a lovingly recreated sleeve taken from the original design templates. Based around original members Roger Horberry and Andrew Hulme, OYC is now returning in its fourth incarnation with live shows and hopefully, new music to come. Watch the horizon.

"Emotional Rescue begins the first in a series of reissues looking at the music of guitarist Carl Weingarten and his Multiphase Records label, starting at his highly sought after collaborate album with Walter Whitney, Dreaming In Colors. With an early interest in photography and Super 8 film leading to a degree in cinema production, Weingarten's other, self-taught, love was the slide guitar. Taking its blues roots and merging them with his visual arts background created a unique "painting in sound" style of playing. While looking to break into the film industry he began writing and recording his own film scores and other music for modern dance companies. From this, he founded Multiphase Records in St Louis in 1980. By the time of Dreaming In Colors, the label had released a series of cassettes and vinyl albums offering abstract, experimental, jazz-fusion, new wave and increasingly, new age compositions. Throughout this period the work of engineer, keyboardist and programmer, Walter Whitney was often present and by the 1985 release of Dreaming In Colors the duo had collaborated for a number of years and released several projects together, most notably as members of the Delay Tactics band. Recorded during off days from the Delay Tactics sessions, the album came together at Whitney's Subterranean Sound studio with a focus away from the bands guitar driven instrumentals to explore a multilayered approach to synthesis, blending textures with Whitney's original samples and sound design, while Weingarten's guitar moved from shining solo moments to complimenting the overall oeuvre, all with heavy washes of delay. This ecumenical approach led to the creation of this compelling album. A masterful conceptual whole that is linked by rich melodies and a concise playing style, heavy on substance while never forgoing the uplifting vibrations. "

"Emotional Rescue is honoured to reissue the benchmark in new age ambient music, Michael Stearns epic Planetary Unfolding album. Out of press on vinyl for over 30 years, here is Stearns masterful electronic symphony in 6 movements, recorded using his Serge modular synthesizer at the Continuum Studio in 1981. The culmination of years of exploration in "space" music, Stearns journey, to the album's release, was one of learning and application. Involved in music since his teens, he graduated from guitar bands in the late 60s to an increasing interest in the principles of electronic music synthesis and the physics of musical instruments. He moved from Tucson, Arizona to Los Angeles in 1975 where he performed live during movement meditation classes at the Continuum Studio. He released his first cassette album in 1977 before going on to record 7 albums during this formative period. With Planetary Unfolding, the musical ideas that Michael performed on the Serge developed into this 52-minute masterpiece of music, six movements, three on each side of the LP. Based on the idea that the universe is made of sound held together through resonance, where atoms, cells, oceans, plants, animals and humans, all are part of a complex orchestration - the Earth as a being of sound. Having first approached Michael in 2013, his uncertain response that the album could be rereleased in a way that the music would be given justice via vinyl, the idea was never forgotten. Gaining discovery, appraisal and prominence when "As The Earth Kissed The Moon" appeared in edited form on the "I Am The Centre" box set from Light In The Attic, this excellent window into the world of Private issue new age music, superbly compiled by Douglas McGowan, further increased the interest in Michael's and others, such as Laraaji, music. With the likes of Matthewdavid's Leaving Records and Jonny Nash's Melody As Truth pushing the ambient curve beyond a post club, chill out fad, classic albums can rightly sit alongside this 'new age of the new age', so that ambient music again has a gravity and place of it's own. This specially re-mastered version by Bob Ohllson features the original artwork by Leilani Bost, liner notes by long-term friend and fellow musician, Gary David, as well as the photography of Ron Peterson, together bringing this wonderful album to life once again.

Emotional Rescue returns to the the work of remix specialists extraordinaire, Razormaid, with a special collection of their remixes of cold wave / dark wave synth band, Psyche. Featuring unreleased, re-edited and remastered versions of some of the bands most club-based tracks on one EP for the first time. Formed in 1982 in Edmonton, Canada by Darrin and Stephen Huss out of love of the new electronic sounds emanating out of Europe, Psyche soon forged their own path. Influenced by the industrial and post-punk sounds of bands like Killing Joke and Alien Sex Fiend, as well as the synth pop melodies of groups like Soft Cell and Yazoo, the brothers help precipitate the start of darker electronic "goth" sound. Following the success of their self released debut, Insomnia Theatre, ripples across the water in Europe led to it subsequently being picked up and rereleased by French label New Rose. Coming to Paris in 1986 to record the follow up, Unveiling The Secret, they heard that San Francisco based edit / remix protagonists Razormaid had created a re-edit of the title single for one of their own DJ tool compilations. Liking what they heard, a deal was strike allowing future tracks to come under the remixers scalpel and special versions created from the master recordings. With this came a new remix of Unveiling The Secret and also, early single, Prisoner Of Desire, with both only appearing on the increasingly sought after Razormaid DJ series. Impressed with the results, Joseph Watt was then commissioned to work his mixing desk skills on the band's follow up 12". Included here, Watt's classic "US Club Mix" of Eternal is the perfect marriage of Psyche's poppier elements with Razormaid's mastery of finding the groove. This is backed with the tougher, throbbing - and never released on 12" before - "Alcatraz Mix" retake of Prisoner Of Desire. On the reverse sees the collaboration between Psyche and Razormaid continue today with a specially reworked version of Watt's re-edit of Unveiling The Secret. Additional arranging by Darrin Huss sees the lyric and structure return to that of the original album version to unique effect. To close is the specially extended mix of Ecstasy from the Intimacy album - which itself was produced, edited and mixed by Joseph Wyatt - a version only ever released on Razormaid DJ Promo until now!

Sad City's debut album was an absolute delight to behold when it landed late last year, and this remix package on Emotional Response does a great service to the quality of the original by offering up some truly outstanding new versions from impeccable talent. DJ Nature is one of the greats of heads down, dusty house, and his smoky handling of "Steady Jam" draws you in across two blissful versions that adorn the A side. On the flip, "Pace, Movements I-IV" gets a beautifully bubbly acid treatment from HOLOVR, and Herron plunges "Rain" into a murky bath of leftfield techno.

"Emotional Response returns to the SchleiBen series, with another offering of 4 split albums. Again artists are given free reign, encouraged to push the boundaries of their studio and live experimentation in form and texture. For parts 5 - 8 the net is cast wide, from the psychedelic moons of Tomaga to Matthewdavid's meditative live improvisation, a collection of A Man Called Adam's commissioned sound-works to Jon Keliehor's new age visions. First Tomaga, a duo that grew out of engine of psychedelic rock outfit, The Oscillation, to become a respected entity of it's own. Featuring long time friend of the label, Tom Relleen and drummer extraordinaire Valentine Ma, the project has grown to become greater than the sum of its parts. With 4 albums in 3 years and one more upcoming - plus their ridiculously overlooked solitary remix of Not Waving for the label - the output doesn't come close to matching their live "events", from almost constant touring. The 2 pieces were recorded in an improvised session as an interzone between their last album, which was recorded entirely in non-studio spaces and their newer material. Featuring heavily processed long form studio recordings, the pieces, with Tom's bass and audio manipulation set over Valentine's exemplarily, intricate percussive interplay, provide a perfect, brooding introduction to the second series of SchleiBen. This is contrasted with the first 'official' solo output of Neil Tolliday. As Nail, he has gained respect for over 25 years crafting deep, bumpin' House music on labels like DiY Discs, Remote and Classic, including the sought after Big D's Lounge album. After a sojourn as one of half of off-kilter pop duo, Bent, the Nail moniker has been recently resurrected for a new generation of followers. Throughout this time Neil has recorded more personal music, initially for his own consumption, however some recently starting surfacing under various pseudonyms via digital portals. No press, no information about who was really behind the music was given before being deleted soon after. After some encouragement, here then marks the first appearance of Neil Tolliday. On the two tracks included, these drawn out, eastern influenced, drone ragas are pure meditation from Tolliday's 4/4 output. With an upcoming album on Emotional Response, more is to come. A welcome return to SchleiBen then, due course to pause and reflect, emptying the moment to (un)listen. "

"Emotional Response continues the second SchleiBen series with a pan-ocean exploration of meditative spiritualism meets psychedelic ambience. The 2nd of the 4 part series expands with the inclusive offerings from LA's Matthewdavid and London's HOLOVR for a cyclical journey of altered consciousness against lush 303-tinged harmonics. First, Matthewdavid provides a 20-minute live recording to showcase his "meditation with music". Beat maker, producer, label owner, radio host and now new age explorer, Matthew David McQueen has been a fixture of the City Of Angles music scene for over a decade. However, it was his association with Tropical Hi-Fi (SchleiBen 3) that first attracted the label's attention to dig deeper in to his developing sound. As Leaving Records founder he has a prominent role is shaping the cities sound that has seen him work with Sun Araw, Laraaji and a myriad of the label's roster. Here performing in most his recent incarnation, Matthewdavid's Mindflight - having just released the wonderful Trust The Guide And Glide double album opus - is Sonos. Recorded live at Dublab Radio's "Tonalism" event at Sonos Studios, the piece utilises Critter & Guitari Pocket Piano, Hulusi Flute and Ableton Live to create movement, fade and sequence. A looping realisation, music inside music, thresholds expanded, connecting the centre, a place, origin, a soul that allows a devout expression to exude and find mediation in sound. This is music to get lost and at the same, get found in. Set against these endless arp-loops, is HOLOVR, raising a more focused consciousness that is a perfect counterpoint. Having already appeared on the label via his recent, deep, eloquent remix of Sad City, as well as releasing with label favourites Opal Tapes, Further Records and Firecracker, the desire to work with another uniquely individual producer has been in place for several years. Recorded using only hardware; 303 lines, soft pads, arpeggio synths and Roland percussion capture a snapshot of time in a natural, in-the-moment negotiation of these different elements, giving trademark, open, drifting loops that let the listener within, while texture and tone engage, activating harmonic resonances almost as a drone. This progressive disintegration, tuning in and dropping out of musical spheres envelops while hinting at aphex influences and (artificial) intelligence. SchleiBen shifts, expanding, growing, pulsating. Keep the faith and (un)listen. "

"Things take a psychedelic turn for SchleiBen 7 with a welcome to the label of arch exponents of mind expansion in NYC's Georgia and the unlikely but no less diverse inclusion of Balearic stalwarts A Man Called Adam. Having Georgia in the series might not now be a surprise, however discussions with this open, genuine duo started during a visit to New York over 3 years ago and so here, finally realised in this fluid journey of confident pace and harmony, is the best of their freeform evocations. A duo in the everyday sense, Brian Close and Justin Tripp are video / music production teamsters of unnatural talent. Having gained a status of their own that has seen them release for the likes of Palto Flats and FTD, the five pieces that form their contribution drip with psychedelic intent. Culled from archives, the interest is how the tracks - made over different years, locations and situations in life - meld in to something poetic simply by being placed within a specific format. Avant-chimes ebb to rhythmic pulses and erudite teachings before dark percussion and Eastern melodies reach a clattering, but gentle finale. With an upcoming collaborative album with Secret Circuit due on the label later in 2018, as well as recent works with RVNG Intl's Matt Werth and recordings for Sacred Summits' brethren Firecracker Recordings, it's a warm, effusive glow of a welcome. In contrast, the inclusion of A Man Called Adam in the series may indeed surprise but is a false comprehension. The "Sketches" included here show AMCA away from their Balearic pop incarnation of the last thirty years and towards the academia that both members Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones have pursued in the last decade. With both completing PHDs, Sally ('The Diachronic Impact of Technology-Led Abstraction in Oral, Written and Music-based Poetries') is a senior lecturer at Leeds College Of Music, while Steve ('Mobilise: The Carry Principle, Sound and Mobile Media') is based out of de Montfort University, now is the perfect time to highlight the diverse sound environments they have been working in. The music that makes up these recordings are drawn from sound works and audio experiments completed in recent years. From sound toys and apps to home made glass organs and electro-acoustic sound, custom patches to spoken word manipulations, the sketches are excerpts - some evolved from commissions for the National Science Museum, BBC Radio 4 and live performances with the world renowned video artist Milosh JL - fused especially for this release. Bringing these generated pieces in to an audible "mix" creates a discourse of their work in performance, interactions and visual media. An intellectualised album therefore, but still in the premise of the series to allow artists to present something new, unique, discrete, hidden even, all with the aim of giving the recipient the chance to sit back and (un)listen.

"For the final part of SchleiBen 5 - 8, Emotional Response welcomes two Scottish based artists to close out the series. In Jon Keliehor you have a world and music traveler with history from psychedelic rock to fourth world exposure, alongside one of the best electronic producers of the last decade, Lord Of The Isles. As the drummer of West Coast folk rock / psychedelic band The Daily Flash, Keleihor spent much of the mid-60 based in and out of Seattle and Los Angles, playing alongside the likes of Jefferson Airplane, Cream and The Doors, before an increasing interest in meditation and philosophies outside of the 'rock' realm led him to England in the early 70s where he become involved in dance theatre. Teaching Advanced Rhythmic Music Studies at the London Contemporary Dance School, his music composition style became influenced by his studies of world music. Finally settling in Glasgow for over 20 years, while running the Luminous Music label and Gamelan Naga Mas, his earlier recordings for labels like Indipop, Touch and Bruton have seen a recent revival, with music appearing recently on contemporaries Optimo Music and Invisible Inc. The wonderful recordings included here span over 3 decades, from sessions at the Luminous Studio at The Diorama Theatre, London in the early 80s, through to recent field-work based recordings in the Cairngorms. Reconfigured and updated, a common thread appears through the pieces - a sense of longing and appreciation - as Jon's knowledge of outer-national instrumentation alongside equally extensive travels around the globe gives the recordings a seamless blend of organic craft. The tonal consonances within unlikely combinations of instruments, with tuned glasses (tarang), tabla, jaw harps, clay flutes and ocarinas, Chinese instruments that include Xiao-Bo and Xiao-Ping, large Noah bells, small and larges gongs all employed, the recordings have been reconstructed, edited and updated via sampling and digital processing. Featuring the playing of John "Jhalib" Millar - the extraordinarily gifted musician and tabla player - who has appeared with an EP on sister label, Emotional Rescue (ERC029), sadly recently deceased, the contribution acts as a tribute and more. To close, the music of Lord Of The Isles is an excellent companion to Jon's work. Neil McDonald's list of club-based releases on labels CockTail D'Amor, Ene, Firecracker, Permanent Vacation, ESP Institute and Phonica is comprehensive and exemplary, however within his productions has often been an other-worldly element, a space between the beats and occasional fully ambient pieces. Approached originally for series one of SchleiBen, the 7 pieces included were worth the wait, a journey in themselves and the perfect completion. Spanning almost 5 years, the majority were written during an extended exile in the Cairngorms. The lifting, ethereal, but melodic nature of the music fits that aesthetic. Blue skies, snow, long walks, space to think, but with a longing and appreciation of family and friends. The solitary nature found in SchleiBen 8 and the geographical incidence of both artist's recordings including sessions in the Scottish Highlands fits the series ideals and is a nice closure. Enjoy and listen. "
Deep House
The Fields & Forest label has so far aligned itself with the stellar Russian label Udacha, featuring Dices, A5 and Cuisine Dub, but things are taking a turn into new territory with the inclusion of Autre and Two Thou with two tracks a piece on this new slab of wax. Two Thou's "Group Technology" is a snappily shaped, 80s influenced groover with some interesting timbres falling into a dynamic groove, while "SOL" shows another side to the artist with a snaking slice of jazz funk infused experimental techno. Autre's "Cosmic Roots" is a more esoteric, new age gilded slice of ambient house while "Futura" ramps up the saucy synths for a silk-tongued charmer of a warm-up jam.

Rudy returns to Faze Action Records with an all-new collection of atmospheric and evocative tropical sounds. Last August saw the release of the By Nature EP that encapsulated the steamy and exotic textures of the Balearic sound. This time, Midnight Safari takes up where on the beaches of Formentera, where the last EP left us. This time setting sail on a Midnight Safari with Marimba's and chugging rhythms underpinning sophisticated Piano' melodies. Following this we drop anchor and appreciate the evening breeze of In The Air with its haunting 'Cello, endless drifting arpeggio's and tropical percussion with a hint of North Africa. Reach Backless points the way squarely to the dance floor with chunky drums and synth bass, synth hooks galore and that piano solo that launches into starry evening skies. It's back down to earth with the settled quiet bass guitar harmonics of Windchimes before heading into the more soulful and synth melodic territory of Solar Plex.

There was only ever going to be one choice to launch First Floor. Not only is Dubbyman the cover star of our debut publication of the same name, but he's also the face and sound of influential Spanish label Deep Explorer, in-demand producer/remixer and long-time favourite with us. So the opportunity to collaborate on a special edition 7" vinyl release was one we couldn't miss. So Far, featuring South African vocalist and musician Ras Vadah from The Therapy Collektive, is an extended version of the laidback, jazzy opening teaser from Dubbyman's debut album Deep Is Dead. Deep Explorer stalwart Leo Gunn, on remix duties for the first time, takes the same track and gives it a piano-driven, dance-floor focused spin. The accompanying fanzine not only includes interviews with both Dubbyman and Gunn, but also features articles on Johannes Albert, Tommo & Jonno, Jesus Gonsev, Arnheim, Sensible Soccers and more. "

Initially released and produced in Germany in 1995 as a tribute to Mike Dunn, it's in the techno realm that the "Catch It" EP won its acclaim when the hypnotic B side "Ruhrschnellweg" was featured into Laurent Garnier's seminal "Laboratoire Mix" in 1996. The Hong Kong based "Fragrant Harbour" team worked closely with the original artists to propose a meticulously re-mastered version by Matt Colton.

Hailing from the fertile community they have built up around them in Bucharest, Delusion Men and their label Future Nuggets represent a very different twist on the contemporary Romanian electronic music scene. This album is a prime case in point, dealing in off-kilter wavey synths, intriguing rhythmic approaches and spooked out atmospheres that speak as much to the folkloric mystery of the East as any electronic traditions from other parts of the world. If you're drawn to music that sends you to exotic new places on the fringes of your imagination, then Stuck On The Border is the album for you.

The 10-track 2x12"" takes in various moods and tempos whilst staying rooted in OOFT!'s low-slung house style.

Following a first drop from Leo Anibaldi and a various 12" featuring Mike Ink, DJ Guy and Terrestre, Future Primitive is back with an immersive new LP from CN, whose approach to electro comes loaded with analog fuzz and a wistful vision of science-fiction sounds. This is a record that should appeal to fans of proper electro as envisioned by Drexciya, Bunker Records and CPU alike. The Kraftwerk influence comes thick and fast on "Surfing Carina" while you can hear all kinds of monosynth-powered atmospheric dread lurking on ambient track "Coronal Mass Ejections" - with a consistent concept and a perfect execution this is a masterclass in future-minded machine funk.

Finale Sessions launch a new series entitled Unreleased, and their kicking things off with label boss Michael Zucker sparring with Jonno & Tommo (more commonly found lurking around labels like Ornate). As you would expect from Finale, it's a deep house masterclass, with Jonno & Tommo leading the proceedings with the deft piano licks and hard grooving sub bass of "Dirty Nylons" before Zucker steps in with the pattering rhythms and swooning pads of "Just Believe". On the flip Zucker embraces a gentle strain of electro for "Narrow Is The Gate" before Jonno & Tommo round the record off with the immersive tones of "Shark City".

Go! Finger returns to the vinyl grooves again! And this time showing a more dramatic and darkest side. Holland's underground legends Das Ding and DJ Overdose, join forces, for the first time, to deliver "AM/PM".

A delightful and state of the art chiaoscuro of today's freshest dark electronics.

Leigh Darlow and Matthew Bandy have got plenty of experience in the world of deep house, both individually and as Saison. Building on a solid run of releases for Papa Records, the project makes its vinyl debut on Guesthouse with some undeniably catchy jams for the peak of the night. "Please Don't Go" is a cool slice of party fodder that hinges on a classic soul vocal hit, while "Do You" gets a little more choppy in the mix with yet more recognisable licks that should get the masses sweating and swaying without needing to resort to a hectic tempo. "The Moody Blues" lets the keys do the talking, while yet another of the hefty grooves Saison craft so well rolls out underneath.

Steve has been djing and producing for many years now, he released few EP's on labels like Chiwax, Wilson Records, Lobster Theremin or Muscle Records. He is now part of the family with this great 2 house tracks. The side A «A Everything U knowA» is growing slowly with a nice techno drums and sub bass then the chords are coming to balance the groove and the final touch of this side are the vocals that give the track a really nice vibe. The side B «A InfiltratorA» is more groovy with a nice heavy melodic bass and has some nice rave-dance synth. Hope you will enjoy rock the dance floor with those 2 dance floor peak time tracks."

"We've reached Honey Butters 2nd instalment. After the sought after Club Flamingo, the spotlight is now aimed towards Germany where our good friend M.ono is residing. The eminent producer delivers 3 club ready tracks for all hours of the evening. Starting the journey with the title track Peanut Butter Lover, where M.ono takes you to the moon and back on the rainbow express train. Flipping the plastic and you will hear the some exquisite and uplifting rhode action and the occasional saxophone stabs in Bummi, this one will leave you smiling and thinking about drinks with small umbrellas in them. Wrapping up the EP we have the piano-groover Made in Montana which not only works great when you have most comfortable socks on but will also leave you wanting more."

Holic Trax label boss Tomoki Tamura continues his anniversary celebrations by presenting his own work on this third installment of 5ive Years. The title track is a deep and crafty tech house cut suited to more subtle, heads down moments, while "Polyphony Six" keeps things equally moody but fattens out the bass and warms up the lead lines. "U's Floppy Disk" is a more taut, wiry track with gruff drums and splashes of bleepy FX - the perfect tripped out club tool. "High Chee's" lightens the mood at the 11th hour with a more playful melodic line that should fine favour with all kinds of good time DJs.

Iron Curtis' back catalogue is a formidable beast within the realms of deep and tech house, touching on labels like Morris Audio, Jackoff, Sudden Drop and Mule Electronique. He's intermittently popped up on Hudd Traxx as well, and he returns with a fulsome new EP that hints at a forthcoming second part. "Lights" is a bold, chiseled peak timer with some emphatic string stabs coursing through it, while "Captured" takes a slinkier route without dulling the impact of the Curtis studio approach. "22 Days" is a funkier concern that lets the low end synths do the brunt of the work, and then "My Humming Machines" rounds the EP off with a warm and bubbling deep house roller for a cosier part of the night.
Deep House
NYC's Evan Michael joins the long list of Hudd Traxx Producers and arrives with a bang after previously releasing on the iconic Drumpoet Community label. Duende is a hypntoic keys heavy anthem which kicks things off nicely. PCH Passing is a straight up house jam with a heads down breakdown, perfect for peak time. Machine Pepper is a lovely wonky groover and Rainmaker finishes off the EP in fine style. A fine additonn to the Hudd Traxx catalogue before they celebrate their 60th release :-)

Hackney Vandal Patrol is a brand new project from long time friends and neighbours Scott Fraser & Richard Sen. Focusing on their joint love of that deep Miami/ New York house sound, Vol I is the first edition in a series of LTD 12s. Heading back to Richard's heritage of being a highly respected graffiti artist, each one is hand tagged by Richard in his own unique style and numbered with an insert by Scott. The first release, ""Bound By Faith"" is a straight up and direct for the dance floor Miami style deep house cut, complete with Reverend Jesse Jackson speech on the vocal version. For the DJ crews there is a deeper ""Redemption Dub"" stripped back ""Bass Hit"" with added percussion and a re-programmed instrumental of the original....The Hackney Vandal Patrol were once despatched to patrol the streets around the mighty London Borough of Hackney. Each 12"" is individual and collectable... strictly limited!

Horn Wax is always a trusted outpost for intriguing, often haunting forays into the world of machine powered house and techno, and so it goes on edition 11 as Perseus Traxx and Posthuman take a side each to extol the virtues of electronic exploration. Perseus Traxx is in an especially romantic mood with the blown out tones of "Manque" straining through a fog of reverb and dust, creating a truly mesmerizing jacker in the process. Posthuman by way of contrast keeps things clear and concise, preferring a sinsister, sleazy approach to acid that rides a slower tempo and sounds all the more alluring for it.

The fifth instalment of the Hoxton Records story turns to Alan Castro, who has already had a busy year appearing on the likes of For Club, STAMP and Soundterasse. The vibe is stripped down and unhinged on this record, with lead track "El Avion De La Mentira" unfurling in a strange tapestry of samples, found sounds and off kilter synth rubs strapped to a crafty set of drums. Modebaku delivers a more streamlined version of the track that keeps things freaky, but much more linear than the wayward original. "Sequela" on the flip is no slouch in the adventurous department either, with swathes of modulating tones and wild sonic matter flinging around a funky shuffle, which Ted Amber then dutifully bolsters with a rubbery b-line on his more functional but still daring version.

First release on Infiltrate, 4 tracks on a electro techno tip.

A crack team of Steel City savants combines forces to forge four tremendous cuts of tweaked-out, wormole-jumping electro to soundtrack your time-travel commute. The A-side showcases fresh producers from Pittsburgh's bustling underground. Naeem (from the Detour promotion crew and label) and the enigmatic duo, HIts Only, contribute equally ripping tracks that showcase their unique take on Bleep-Zap electro. The B-side is reserved for the revered machine-fun specialist himself, Shawn Rudiman. 'Direlect' (originally released on Pittsburgh's Hypervinyl Records in 1999) is given another lease on life in the B1 spot while 'Asimolar' rounds out the release.

Having done some sterling work in reissuing the ace material from Archetype, the emergent Pittsburgh label was / is now turns its attention to cult mid-90s techno label Temple Records NYC, and this rough and ready burner from Cube 40 (a short lived outfit with close ties to Air Liquide and more besides). "You Make Me Function" is everything you want in an acid party banger, with a killer vocal hook looped into infinity and enough jack in the drums to lift and articulated lorry off the ground. "Fun House" is the more rowdy of the two, coming on strong with a Dance Mania friendly swagger and healthy amounts of 303 thrown into the mix.

Jazzy Couscous strikes back with their "La chance aux chansons" EP, showcasing various upcoming talents from the French and Swiss club scene.The opening track, "A long way", is delivered by Matthieu Faubourg, an incredibly gifted young French producer who exploded last year thanks to his mesmerizing "Please, Stay...". It explores darker shades while keeping Faubourg's deep imprint. Next comes Normandy's best kept secret DrezB's first effort with "Chemical distortion". A swinging deep house killer track with some acid accents, definitely floor oriented. The B side is opened by Switzerland most promising club scene talent, Pascal Viscardi. His "Digital illusion" track is a cold and merciless dub house monster. This one will definitely cause a few casualties. Finally, this EP is closed by Midori featuring Victor Santoni with an incredible atmospheric jewel. Literally coming from outer space, their "Distance" track will get you high, VERY high.

Celebrating its 10th release, Jazzy Couscous dug in its Japanese crates to bring us a forgotten gem produced by Japan's Jazz legend Kazumi Watanabe. The track called "?????" (Garuda) was originally released in 1984 on a private press dedicated to a famous Japanese wrestler, Antonio Inoki. Nearly 5min of an ambient beauty taking you through the mysteries of South East Asia's deepest jungles. On the B side, Jazzy Couscous invited Kuniyuki, a true musical genius from Japan knowing no boundaries when it comes to sublimate raw diamonds like Garuda. He delivers an outstanding remix, taking the listener on to a musical journey of exotic deepness. Using traditional drums, he tints the track with an authentic tribal and epic color while synth and pads are creating a dreamy atmosphere in the second part. A true beauty.

Kalita are busy adding more weight to their on-point reissue catalogue with this excellent single from Caribbean funksters IWABO. "Reggae Down" does indeed feature a skank of sorts and all manner of sunkissed vibes, but there's a greater emphasis on laid back funk than you would find in typical Jamaican output. "Smile On Your Face" is a more light hearted track that equally draws on a variety of reference points to impart its infectious positive message. IWABO may have been a secret weapon of serious diggers for years, but now it's time for the wider record buying public to get in on the groove.
Disco/Nu-Disco
"Kinfolk returns after a long hiatus with an outstanding release from the mighty Mind Fair donning their newly invented 'Sundown Drive' hats. 'Sunset over Santorini' is a sonic brew of percussion, guitars, jazz-funk keys and heavenly vox that's all kept together with a driving shuffle that brings to mind the more experimental Leftfield disco sounds of 70's NYC and beyond. On The flip Dan 'Nad' Tyler delivers a wacked-out remix monster that takes it deep into a Norwegian via Homerton disco-dub-not disco-dub vortex of truly epic proportions that will twist your body, mind & soul as it ventures in and out of the groove laden original. "

" After his initial release on World Unknown records way back in 2011 - a tunethat featured on Andrew Weatherall's Ministry Of Sound 'Masterpiece' 2012 compilation - Kalidasa has also released music via Magic Feet and Tusk Wax. This latest release sees him ploughing along a similar musical line. 'The Mirage' and 'Sun Aki' are both tracks for those who like to chug-along to the more refined, no frills tunes that do exactly what they say on the tin. Both are perfect spaced out and otherworldly grooves for strobe filled and lazer infused dark basements. Soft Rocks throw around some magical dust on the flip for their 'Sun goes up, Sun goes down' remix which sees them turn 'The Mirage' into a 9 minute time lapse venturing from an early morning ambient start through to a pulsating electronic drive through the stars.

"Foreword by Ben (For Those That Knoe) As a young person growing up in West Yorkshire, my experiences of true underground clubbing became intertwined with names such as Back to Basics, 20/20 Vision and Carl Finlow. That period in the early 2000's became a life-affirming time for my young self. Frequent trips to Back to Basics, then held at the Mint Club helped forge my outlook on electronic music and how it should be played in a club environment. I would often hear stories about ""the Farm"" and the late night parties and studio sessions. The anecdotes and tales of US icons recording in the countryside with the local guys provided only a small insight into the creativity and fun that must have gone on during those years. Cut to now in 2017, whilst looking back to those times more than fifteen years ago, I can proudly say that the dots have been joined and the connections now formally established. I'm immensely proud to say that Carl Finlow, the understated king of British electro, and I, have put together a selection of his works that provides a themed snapshot into his musical history. The music I have chosen with Carl may not be all of his biggest tracks but it is the music that is special to me. The selection has a vibe, one that is deep and emotive, music for the head as well as the feet. I hope you hear it in the same way. If you don't know Carl Finlow, now you knoe."

Meandyou return with the ninth instalment of the collective's record label, this time presenting Manchester cult techno artist J.S. Zeiter. Zeither resurrects his Analog 1 alias for his second outing on the label, after 2012s mini album on the collective's first edition of the TAPE series - the cassette featured original material split per side between Zeiter and Meandyou's Herron. In the late 1990s, J.S. Zeiter reached cult status by releasing a string of dub-infused techno EPs under his SJ moniker, each becoming sought after amongst collectors and DJs. Styrax Leaves recently reissued a number of his classic tracks, including new edits of the previously released tracks. He has released music on his own MCMLXV and JS imprints, as well as Pleasure Music and Phorma. 'Restoration EP' features 3 new productions that float between slow-mo techno and electro, plus the previously CD only track 'Interude 3' that appeared on the acclaimed 'Decade' album.

The third outing for Modern Manners emerges on the back of two very strong 12"s that introduced this anonymous outfit to the world. "Timeless Vibe" continues where the last release left off, building up a wonderfully cosmic bed of processed melody under which casual hand played percussion and warm bass notes can linger. "Azzahar" too keeps things pleasantly soporific with its gentle pace and lilting guitar refrains, and then "Middle East Manners" rounds this excellent trio of EPs out with a beautifully realised swirl of sounds that find focus once a kick drum starts pulsing and the percussion starts building. Quite who Modern Manners are is a mystery at this stage, but across these three 12"s they've certainly made their presence felt in the softest, most laid back of ways.

The second release from Music Makes Us is produced by a young, up and coming producer from Leeds. Einerlei has an unrivaled ability to create long revolving landscapes of techno, which over the course of the track take you on a journey, adding subtle elements as you listen, but retaining the core rif. This ability to create a whole piece of music out of a simple melody may seem simple in its delivery, but as you listen you notice the varying layers that make up these two driving dub techno tracks.

After the first two results, the third chapter of the saga guarantees the usual elegance rich in mystery. The deep sounds continue to blend into rhythmic micro-house for a release that will be danced and enjoyed Aagain in the best clubs of globe.

Mosaic continues its fruitful split series with three producers that fit into the mould of Steve O'Sullivan's label perfectly. Dean Decosta comes on restrained and refined on "Recon", taking a laid back approach with gravelly dub techno chords billowing over a cool-headed house beat. Bobby O'Donnell gets even smoother as his own take on deepest house uses gently undulating keys to impart a meditative vibe anyone can get lost in. Sean Dixon then heads further out with some spacey chords that reverberate and chime around a minimalist beat for a true head tripper of a track.

"Third release Mosaique Records MSQ003 ""DMT/JASSS - MICK WILLS EDIT + CUT"" that's an another dark electronic music experience, which includes new edit and ?ut by german musician and producer Mick Wills, known by his releases on such labels as Nation, MinimalRome, Rush Hour etc. Side A- super rare, almost unknown track by a russian industrial project DMT (Dmitry Tolmatsky/1970-2009), grabbed by Mosaique label owner Alexander Moralez from DIY audio-cassette. Thereafter it had some edits on Mick Wills studio. Side B- Mick's cut on never released track ""Flexion"" by Jasss (releases on Mannequin ? Anunnaki Cartel). Limited edition, vinyl only, A&B Sides - 45RPM."
Disco/Nu-Disco
J.A.K.A.M is Japanese artist Takashige Miyawaki, a long standing producer commonly found on Crosspoint Records. On this release for the ever intriguing Malka Tuti label Miyawaki draws on a thrilling spread of influences to make a truly soul-stirring track. At times the vocals lean towards a Middle Eastern lilt while the saxophone burns with the fire of the post punk era. With monolithic drum hits, yearning violin and plenty more besides, "Wabi Sabi" is a many-headed beast of a track. Moscoman takes the original and simmers it down to a more focused but no less exotic tribal house workout.
Disco/Nu-Disco
New to the NAAR stable, In:State & Giuli make their debut in stunning style.Visitoz is a straight forward techno affair, as bumping as it is surprising. Using a deceptively simple gated arp and horn to dazzlingly complex effect. The track is potentially the most peak time NAAR has gone yet, and it's an incredibly welcome addition to their canon. On remix duty Lauer takes a hold of the main arpeggio and turns it monstrous in the style of Liasions Dangeruese, yet balances this with his trademark lightness of touch and his ear for a heart wrenching synth line, creating an instant classic that feels like it was beamed straight in from 1986. "Plus 1" has been sent from a parallel dimension where the evolution of music took a turn so different that Proto Garage stands where Proto House should be. The track has the step and swagger of the most compelling end of the 2 step movement, but balances that with the surprising naivete and earnestness found in Italo, EBM and early forays from Chicago. Finishing things off, Lizards return to the label for a welcome encore following last years success with their 1st release,Tanni.
Deep House
Ess O Ess (aka Chris Stoker and Jamie Blanco) return to Not An Animal to further indulge in the organic house territories previously mined for the previous releases. The duo have an uncanny nack for deftly balancing the rockier end of Disco with the authenticity of early house, and never more so than on "Secret Place. The original bounces and struts in a pleasingly groove laden hypnotic fashion, while the dub version turns down the guitars and turns up the synthesisers for a more heads-down dance floor excursion. On remix detail Kuniyuki Takahashi makes his 1st appearance on the label. On the vinyl you'll find an interpretation which can be best be described as pitched-down balearic-techno, which clicks, clacks and folds upon itself, drowning in waves of reverbed drama-drums at a deceptively low tempo. Kuniyuki also provides a second remix as a digital exclusive, mildly pulling back on the pomp of the vinyl version, but replacing it with a spacious pathos, complete with backwards guitars that reminiscent of an electronic within without you era Beatles. Angaphora make their NAAR debut with their own wildly stirring remix of the lead track, which evokes the golden era of 80s melodic pop music to bewildering success, laden with digitised emotion, singing ebow guitar, and not a kick drum in site.
Disco/Nu-Disco
Transmitting treacherous local energy into his new creative undertakings, Bogdan now joins the Not An Animal force keeping the flame well and truly ignited. A'Parovoznikov' fires across all cylinders with a vigorous Italo-arp bass motor, driving it further down the cosmic highway, engine doused in fully-lubricated synth-pad oil. Justin Van Der Volgen's remix swiftly rips the wing mirror clean off with a zealous two-to-the-floor-hitting blowout. On the B, 'Listopad' cruises top down with a more Balearic approach. A dreamy square bass glissades alongside percussive hats and succulent pads that shuffle within the horizon, whilst computer bleeps chomp and add an intensifying clarity. Kito Jempere's remix closes the release with his first contribution to the label. It lifts up the original and drives towards sundown into moonlight. Warping bass tones squelch against fetching stabs and brash breaks keeping this track fully pulsating.

Norken aka Metamatic releases his first EP on Neo Ouija. Four highly sought after cuts that symbolise the Norken sound at the time: Deep House with the sleekness and machine melancholy of British Chill-Out and IDM that's complimented with crisp drums which give a nod to early Detroit Techno. Norken is best known or his releases on Delsin, Hydrogen Dukebox and Assemble Music among others and there are also some upcoming EPs on Third Ear Recordings and Delsin to look forward to.

OA's time-slipping journey into classic/future-gazing electronics continues with the arrival of Marvis Dee. This new 12" is in fact the brainchild of Jeremiah R, the Dutch electro maverick who kicked off the label back in 2013 with The New Wave, and who has since gone on to respected outposts such as Tabernacle, Enklav. and BAKK. As Marvis Dee he's been equally busy over the past two years, with a spin on deep Chicago house that should strike a chord with fans of Larry Heard et al. On the Alpha EP, Marvis Dee has ample space to explore the boundaries of his sound across six original productions that strike a unique, curious chord even as they display the comforting hallmarks of hardware house music. With jacking 707 drums, punchy basslines, tumbling toms and soaring pads notes with sweet-natured harmonic. This is not house music to spell out how you should be feeling. Orgue Electronique is the perfect match for the woozy tones of Marvis Dee, and so the Dutch mainstay takes to "I Can See It In My Dreams" and delivers a powerful revision to the original production. It's a respectful approach to the remix tradition that aligns with the overall ethos of the Alpha EP. To complement Dee's homage to the spirit of Chi-town beatdowns, the record comes housed in a jacket indebted to the iconic designs of early house music, continuing OA's fine tradition of on-point, concept-led visuals.

The Olympos series continues its exploration of godly themes and adventurous techno with a third instalment, this time calling on Demetra, the goddess of the harvest and agriculture. There's a consistently deep tone to all four of the tracks on offer here, employing swooping pads and undulating bleep lines to conjure up a warm, early 90s feel that would sound right at home on an early B12 single. "Pump It" is especially deep, using the barest of ingredients to take you on a dreamy, machine-powered trip.

Gauss is a collaborative studio project that has been active since 2014. Individually, Chicago native Natan H has released on labels as respected as ManMakeMusic and Finale Sessions, while Maltese producer Owen Jay has been spotted on Underground Quality and Minuendo to name but a few. Independent from their accomplished solo careers, Gauss has a strong identity all of its own which taps into the immersive mood of Ornate Music while coming at it from a fresh direction. Building on the foundations of their self-released 12" series and appearances on Contrast-Wax and Hizou Deep Rooted Music, the Maximum Entropy EP finds the duo in formidable form. From low-blowing electro drums to shimmering pads, rugged, snaking house grooves to hypnotic, metallic chords, on this record Gauss have carved out a cohesive sound world that channels the spirit of classic dub techno. It's this common thread that brings the four distinct tracks together into a truly engrossing exercise in deep-diving electronic music. To celebrate this landmark release each record includes a limited edition printed insert featuring the label artwork from the 1st 25 releases cataloguing the story so far.

Year Zero" is a first release on Post Scriptum's own label and in a sense it is a manifesto defining it's musical identity. No space here for a sound targeting the current techno mainstream. There is dirt, and the pinch of imperfections, very characteristic of avant-garde electronics and industrial well known for the quite nearby past. On the A side, there are compositions appearing like shutters from experiments conducted in the secret laboratory. The rhythm is giving the appropriate weight, while the rest is a musical conglomerate of sounds and synthesis building up a feeling of anxiety. A swarming energy, a modulation, an uncertainty and lurking somewhere danger are surrounding us.On the flip side are remixes constituting the lighter counterpunch. Motor eurhythmics bringing to life the old good Detroit techno definitely of a dance-floor character, making this material ideal for an interesting set.

Continuing the producers passion for New age , Paradasical ambience and dreamy deep house,lead title "jacaranda skies" might be what Telephones and met Mr Heard would of sounded like had they met in Rimini circa 91. A dusky atmosphere provides the backdrop to ecstacy inducing chords,an elevated brass sequence and afro percussion driving a tight groove. 'mangrove Dawn is an aural quaalude hit, gentle synth washes fold over each other,while nature sounds buzz through a distant 303. 'The lost garden opens to a reverb soaked slide guitar and soaring pad section before a jaguar snarl gives way to subtle kick pattern atop M1 chimes and Bali bells.'Skies reprise' closes off the EP with a beatless take on the original, the melodies given more space; the sonic equivalent of open air swaying under hazy pink skies..

Italian producer Enrico Mantini has been his thing for longer than most, with releases reaching back to the early 90s when deep house was first surging in popularity in Italy. This new label Purism opens up with Mantini showing off his years of experience via some warm, undulating tracks that should sit comfortably with any lover of true deep house. "Inner Heights" is as laid back as they come, harmonious and buttery synths oozing over gentle machine beats. "4 Strings Love" is a peppier affair with a bumping rhythm and dubby melodic touches, and then "Unparalleled Consistency" strips everything back to a minimal core, showcasing the range within Mantini's learned palette.

Turn it into a psychedelic disco record (with added meatballs). We think we managed it, reliving the rushy highs from indie-dance's finest moments of 1991. For those of you unaware of the splendid Swedish rockers' groovy workings, they have already released two albums, debut Horse Dance in 2015 and last year's excellent Mirage, from which the ecstatic ?

There is no doubt that Bobby Moore is an absolute F***ing legend, and a true icon R.I.P. A hero who lifted the World Cup for England at Wembley. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of all time, and was cited by Pele as the greatest defender that he had ever played against. A leader of the highest quality and a true inspiration to us all. We would love to say that Neil Diablo shares these traits and acomplishments but his Bewuda EP is tribute enough to one of Footballs gretaest ever captians. The EP itself is a remix record , the track is called Bewuda, and what a track it is . A 6 min trancy club banger. 808 drums all over the place give it a 90's vibe but with Mr Diablos signiture Italo feel. And what we can we say about his team mates . Coyote , Tiago & Dawn Again on the same record ??!! yes please !!!. The Coyote boys dont mess around at all .Straight into a ravey , sweeping banger. Teasing balaerica but keepng it a fully loaded dance floor bomb. Tiago does what Tiago does . His signiture sunshine vibe oozing out of the track from start to finish . The drums are something to behold and the piano riff drop packs a real punch. And last but not least our mate from Melbourne 'Dawn Again' tears up the track and brings us a classic weird re-triangluation in true banging Dawn Again fashion.

The bleeps cut through the shuffling drums on the Silverlining Mix of "When We Come To It" in a flurry of late night tech house finery. The original mix of the track is a tougher, slower twist with a straight-ahead groove but plenty of funk drizzled in between the joints. "Koppaitch" spreads itself across the B-side with a sizzling disco groove and more of those mean-tempered synths that project a dark and seedy side to Rizvi's many-sided musical dice.

After a production hiatus of over a year, the legendary D-Knox returns and it was well worth the wait. For those not in the know, D-Knox (Donnell Knox) grew up in Kalamazoo, a city halfway between Detroit and Chicago, which offers a strong bearing on the musical direction he's taken over the past 20+ years. Founder of Sonic Mind Records, he is an integral member of Techno's history, delivering funk-laden grooves, deep Detroit or hard-hitting Techno since his debut on fellow Kalamazoo label, Black Nation (founded by Donnell's cousin Jay Denham), as well as Magic Trax, Elypsia, Morbid and various others, where he found an outlet for his driving rhythms. Over the years he has gathered a following for his music both at home in the US and overseas. Now residing in Warsaw, Poland his sound continues to develop, as his passion never wavers. His new EP titled 'The Human Machine' could describe D-Knox himself and his perpetual love of electronic music. It features four stunning tracks that bridge the house-techno gap, while his musical youth spent learning piano and drums before discovering dance music back in the early '80s continues to be evident. From 'No Time', which sweeps in with intricate layers of epic chords, cut-up vocal and expressive melody, via 'Rat Race' with its tough yet funky groove, before the shimmering depths of 'Sick Mind' and onto 'Repetition' whose melancholic opening launches into a driving dancefloor workout, we're left in no doubt that D-Knox is still an expert in his field.

For its third release, Sensoramic turns to New York minimalist and renowned modular artist, Kamran Sadeghi. Fresh from releasing on key techno imprints Meander, Brouqade, Fasten Musique and Cocoon, he finishes a strong year with an exceptional three tracker. Lead track Undone suspends time for a twelve minute lesson in modular hypnotism, twisting its way through various chapters and subtle, naggingly hooky melodic passages with the interlude of a deftly placed riser. Sentient takes an alien vocodor style sound through a tense peak time work out while 'Not Here' runs a dense droning pad through a gamut of minimally applied drums and modular noises.

The vinyl only release comes with very special screen-printed silkscreen artwork and is pressed on meaty 180g vinyl for an extra warm and deep sound. Andy Rantzen is a Sydney based artist who appeared on this label's superb second release. The '98%' track from it was used by Sonja Moonear in her Cocoon Mix CD shared with Carl Craig, and Andy is also well-known as part of the duo Itch-E and Scratch-E along with Paul Mac. He assumes that alias here for a remix of 'The Dial'. Laccy aka Pascal Sturmer is a young but talented artist who regularly finds himself behind the decks at cult clubs like Berlin's Club de Visionaire and the Spaced parties in London. A friend of label A&R Bruno Schmidt, he just released on Francesco del Garda's label Timeless, is a real underground head with a bottomless well of knowledge when it comes to cult sounds and scenes and is signed to the top Crisalida agency.

A new label and a new artist throwing their hat into the techno ring with a sideways reference to A Certain Ratio. Do The Du clearly mean business, and waste no time in laying down the law with the rowdy snarl of "Verses", a punky slice of lo-fi techno from the gutter. "Senses" is a more tightly wound, looped up affair for the most nerve-jangled of dancer, while "Sauro" makes mincemeat of the house music blueprint with a wonderfully distorted twist on the genre. "Aicee" gets the whole B-side to trance out on a submerged, throbbing 303 burner and subtle drum jack that harks right back to the early days of Phuture.

After the success of his recent comeback EP entitled Exiles EP, the Icelandic artist Cold shows us that he is here to stay and ready to make his mark in the international techno scene. Dub Safari offers us intricate soundscapes and otherwordly chords which are impeccably assembled into five minimal techno masterpieces. A side starts with a dreamy voyage where ethereal pads seamingly blend with punctuating kick and a acid bassline. Second cut gives us a darker experience. A pulsating groove where chords and percussions offer an interesting sonic playfulness. B-side offers three minimalistic techno tracks ready for both the dancefloor as well as for dancefloor within your mind. ??Thule Records is considered by many to be a pioneers in the field of dub-influenced techno music and was a starting point for many of Iceland's most renowned electronic musicians"

Having made a couple of initial appearances on Groovement a few years back, Helder Russo now re-emerges on Tomorrow Is Now Kid with some effervescent house grooves to impart. "Church Music" in its original form is a truly soul-stirring beast that plies more organ action than you can handle and an endlessly teasing groove to get people shocking out on the floor. Meanwhile the "Floor Mix" gives it to you straight, riding on top of a chunky Nu Groove flavour beat. "New Beat" is a crunchier affair that deals in experimental kinds of percussion and errant synth lines, and "You & Me" rounds the EP out with a floating, synth rich jam for more brooding moments.

"Hard times call for good music. This time around Times Are Ruff (TAR) dedicated their beat fabricating skills to a double EP for Tomorrow Is Now, Kid! The TINK! Project will put some raw, deep, soulful and garage tunes in your ears. As a DJ collective, Times Are Ruff is heavily influenced by the Windy City, taking inspiration from the past, but never sounding outdated. Focussing on long - preferably all night - DJ sets in which Times Are Ruff strives to set itself apart and tell a true musical story to the audience."

After the widespread acclaim for "Shoulders Back" and "July V", Leif fires up his 10" TIO Series with another pair of dazzling, future-minded cuts for the more inquisitive dancefloor. Increasingly he's been moving away from house and techno conventions towards intriguing broken beat variations, and that's apparent in abundance on this new release. "Bluebird" rides on a set of tough but dynamic drum ripples, but the stand-out element is the gorgeous twinkling arpeggio that pirouettes over the top of the beat. "Number 13" meanwhile takes a moodier, dubbier approach without losing that deft programming, harmonic warmth and crafty rhythmic interplay that has become Leif's calling card in recent times.
Techno
Filled with unique nuances and creative vocal sampling, knee rattling base and a sprinkle of synthesisers which hum and snap, enter Requite the latest offering from Tape Throb puppeteer and master of distortion The Cyclist. Progress through tracks which dip their rhythmic toes into techno, no wave and psychedelia, bridged across the divide by the artistic tropes of a musician who knows both his stamp and his reach. Dissimilar and yet united, material and yet transient, Requite is a favour returned from an adherence to the Andrew Morrison project, a response for the love which bent brass and set bones in motion. A flourish; now for the attentive Requite.

Unblock presents it's 7th release with another solid vinyl offering with this 4 track EP by two well established and respected producers. Tato (who also has his own success with his label Isgud Records) on the A side, and TIJN (Label boss of other vinyl only outlets such as In Haus Wax & self titled TIJN) on the B side. A1.Estic has a deep underground percussive tribal balearic feel to it with rolling cool dark melodic synths and infectious moody pads that carry the energy solidly throughout the track A2. Lusyormaind has a slightly lighter feel while still maintaining a deep groove over an intelligent key riff, a dirty baseline with a padded wholesome kick and a dark and sexy hypnotic arrangement with hat patterns providing that bit of light. B1 . Tijn: Stranger Things has a lovely smooth authentic original house vibe with subliminal whispers. The hats and snares carry the swing seamlessly throughout this track. B2. Piano Loop has a summer sunshine vibe to it with a pleasant repetitive warm piano loop layered with bright but smooth percussion over a subtle but effective baseline.

we are happy and proud to launch the debut release from Alexei Versino, 1 half of Stump Valley. We are equally excited to have the legendary Joe Clausell on remix duties as well on this one.

Uzuri is proud to bring back our very own Giorgio Luceri after realising his first "Space Fire Truth" ep with us last fall.This one really pushes the envelope, and dare we say, this may well be his best work to date.

Syncopated percussion and murky atmospherics form the basis of 'Mutual Romance' before Dicicco introduces an ominous melody to generate the duskiest track on the package. 'Virgo Love Affair' then meanders forward with tight kicks and a hypnotising chord sequence before making way for the deep and scintillating 'Filling Pieces'. Concluding the release, 'How We Live' combines organic drums with sweeping effects whilst distorted keys operate throughout.
Minimal/Tech House
There's something strange at work with this mysterious label Vigenere, where a recurrent pattern of oddly formed but unknown names seem to generate killer reduced dancefloor grooves from the most humble of ingredients. This time it's the turn of Ipb Lei Tvl. "Funky Creep" is a truly on-point track title - the beat pops but the synths are creepy as hell, and things are no less unsettling on the eerie "Logidiotic". As if responding to this chilling A-side, there is a warmer lilt to "Tethys" on the flip, but there's still plenty of weirdness and a cracking set of drums to keep you freaking through to the run out groove.
Minimal/Tech House
Nick Anthony Simoncino is synonymous with the revival of Italian house music over the past five years or so, and so it feels right for him to be delivering this album to Vibraphone. Of course, Simoncino has more than enough skills (and hardware) to make something truly special, and that's apparent from the opening strains of "Mystic Adventures" onwards. There's a sense of urgency and mystery woven into tracks like "Righteous Rule", where haunting leads wobble over sizzling drum machines, and the overall mood is redolent of 80s soundtracks mixed with the uneasy side of Chicago house music. Maintaining a punchy finish throughout and constantly reaching for the spooky side of machine soul, Simoncino has more than delivered for the legendary Italian label.
Deep House
Vibraphone Records continues to deepen its contemporary repertoire by inviting Andrew Soul into the fold with a vocal contribution from house music legend Robert Owens. "Slipping Into Darkness" is a beautifully rendered deep house gem with expressive piano work, rubbery bass synth tones, but in some ways the minimalism of Vincent Floyd's remix gives Owens' vocals a chance to take centre stage. "As You Are" is a crooked, broken beat exploration on the fringes of deep house, and Owens' voice sounds resplendent in the more experimental surroundings before Nick Anthony Simoncino comes on board with a 90s flavoured, darkside remix of the highest order.
Deep House
KNLB first appeared with the Initialize 12" on Vibraphone in July of this year, and it's not taken them long to return with another slab of on-point, upfront house music loaded with flair and imagination. "Up Again" is a heavy, chugging and bumping jam that should inspire all manner of screwed up faces of appreciation on the floor, and then "Fog Machine Smell" simmers things down to a more measured house groove. "Half Life" brings a few more dubby elements into the mix, and then the club mix of "SIN" sends the record spinning off in a wonderfully dusty reverie of detuned pianos and late-hitting drums.
Deep House
The journey back into the vaults of seminal Italian house music label Vibraphone Records continues apace with this gem from 1993. K2 was a one-off project for central label figures The True Underground Sound of Rome, and this Loss Of Gravity 12" represents one of the most sought after rarities from the Vibraphone catalogue. The on-point breakbeats of "The Journey", the wistful tones of "In My Garden", the plush ambient refrains of "Lirica" - every inch of this record is steeped in class that belies the age of the music. Need we say more - this is a buy on sight reissue that won't stick around for long.
Deep House
Having previously appeared alongside Tommi Vicari Jr on a 12" last year, Opto Mystics strike out on their own with this 12" for Italian powerhouse Vibraphone. New Horizon very much represents the new school approach with the long serving Italian house label, keeping that deep, melodic quality but embracing new rhythms, tones and approaches. "New Horizon" almost has an Akufen quality to it, while "Bucky Triangle" could easily transmit from the Motor City house scene. "M.I.Y.E." is a swirling blur of gorgeous synths, and "Suddent" finishes the EP off on a surprisingly experimental tip.
Deep House
Having recently appeared on Bosconi Records and Altzmusica, Daisuke Kondo is a producer on the rise at present. This outing on Vibraphone adds fuel to that particular fire with four distinctive cuts that push to the outer edges of house music without losing sight of the groove. "Hold On To Love" is, on the surface, an upbeat, disco-infused house jam, but there's a certain trippy approach Kondo takes in the processing department that edges the music into a different head space. "Life" meanwhile gets gritty and bass heavy at one end of the frequency range, and airy and melodic at the other. "Feelin Blue" gets even dustier and scratchier with its sample treatment, and then "Fallen Star" lays down some unflinching machine beats with wonky, distant piano licks.
Minimal/Tech House
"20/20 Vision's was founded on the idea of 'perfect sight'. We wanted people to have a clear vision of music. A big part of that musical vision was our influences from the origins of Electro music - from the original Electro Pop pioneers Kraftwerk and Yello to more experimental laboratories of Raymond Scott, Tomita, Wendy Carlos and the BBC Radiophonic workshop. We also loved the next wave of Electro from Detroit brought by Juan Atkins and Cybotron. All the early 20/20 Vision output was produced at Farmhouse Studios by Carl Finlow, who went on to record as Random Factor, Voice Stealer and Silicon Scally. Now that output is regarded as classic Electro. It now seems like a great moment again to dive back into the deep and find the next generation of electro artists... Welcome Chris Roman aka 214 with the 'Ingalls Way', a record filled with the kind of creativity and production skills we have become accustomed to with his music over the years. After previous outings on electro institutions Frustrated Funk and Central Processing Unit, 214 now appears for the first time on 20/20 Vision. From the atmospheric tones of 'Potential Events', the manic energy of 'Windeye' and the deeper grooves of 'Back To Sine', it's an EP that leaves no stone unturned in the intergalactic sonic quest. On remix duties we have none other than Keith Tenniswood aka Radioactive Man, who also makes his first appearance on the label. Along with his work as Two Lone Swordsmen with Andrew Weatherall, Keith and his Radioactive output is generally regarded in the upper echelons of British electronic music and we're really excited to have him feature on the label.

Closing the Vivod map series is Alessandro Parisi with this stunning ep, Belmont's Revenge. 3 tracks in his slo mo horror jak trade mark style. Crossfire kicks things off nicely with it's pulsing groove followed by Ravens, a slower, brooding type of soundtrack. Flip over for a remix of Sages by the mighty Mick Wills who has done some nice work here. It builds and builds, perfect for getting lost in the fog and strobe. B2 is the original version from Parisi, a much slower, majestic cathedral horror affair. Awesome stuff all round.

Originally released in 2012 on London haus label Unknown To The Unknown Cestrians Secret Language ep was only available on digital format. Here Vivod team up with UTTU and give it the right to a much needed vinyl release. Five cuts of Cestrian detective noir. A1 Napoli is standard trademark Cestrian thrash metal on syths, A2 Secret Language sounds like someone being stuffed and chopped up through a drain pipe. B1 Purge is a drexciyan rip off horror acid affair, B2 Krapton Fictor is a stripped back FM battle and Umberto gives Napoli the remix treatment to stunning effect in his uncompromised slasher style. Five direct tracks of pure fire. Comes with a screen printed sleeve, artwork courtesy of Pete Mangalore. Limited to 200 copies.

Eighth release on the much sought after Vinyl Only label.

Verdant Recordings 3rd EP is a collaboration between the rising talent Aos and Sonitus Eco. A debut release on vinyl for Aos who has previously released digitally on Blankstairs with the enchanting 90 East minialbum. Sonitus Eco should be well know for his own Harr label and for his majestic ambient and dub techno projects with Silent Season. On this release both bring their love of deep atmospheric and melodic techno for two original works which are then reconstructed by each other. Its fascinating to hear how these tracks reshape the original signatures. An EP that reaches for the stars and yet is subtly introspective and melancholy. 180g pressing an once again the artwork features the beautiful colours of Sophie O'Leary.

Originally released in 2001 on Omni AM's own Euphoria imprint, Tubes for Allah is a rolling tidal wave of beatdown tech house from an era when that wasnt such a dirty term. One of their most sought-after tunes is available again on wax accompanied by a drum mix by Mark Ambrose and two unreleased tunes rescued from the Kastmaster session DATs.

From the murky depths of the distant past comes a hot plate of stank whipped up by your chef du jour and man of a million aliases, Can Oral. This time around its four cuts of SP-1200 electro under his much-lauded 4E alias. Originally released on Freddy Fresh's Sockett imprint in 1996, we are dusting of this unheralded classic in the hopes of bringing some much needed dirt to the dancefloors of 2018.

The third release of WPTMWL collective will focus on the two young resident djs: Luminer. Deep influences, dubby house and Detroit are the essential ingredients of the EP, along with two amazing remixes.. The Icelandic techno legend Thor - widely-known for projects such as Sanasol, for its historic Thule label and for its recent reissues released by Sushitech. And then Hiver, resident djs of Dude Club in Milan and leaders within the famous Curle Records, coming full circle with their remix with break and acid influences. Don't miss it.

Whiskey Pickle Records heads south of the border and scoops up everyone's favorite, Yucatan disco fiend, Hotmood. After a slew of infectious 12"s for Chicago's Tugboat Edits/Star Creature, Hotmood offers up a fresh collection of dancfloor cuts and taps UK darling, Loz Goddard for an epic remix. The Discotheque Dependencies EP see's Hotmood in his prime with each tune channelling jazzy grooves, heavy beats and vibes galore.

Macaulay is Ricardo Medina, a Mexico City based DJ producer deeply ingrained in the Mexican underground techno scene (Xxxtra Picante, Disque Discos). He presents an EP full of acid drenched techno joined by tad bit of cheekiness he is known for, with rolling basslines and jacking drums making these cuts perfect for peak time weirdness. On remix duty is fellow Mexico City based Alejandro Paz (Comeme, RBMA) who ups the wonkiness on Techmoreno with a percussion filled heater.
Disco/Nu-Disco
For WS23 we head to Leeds where Clandestino crew member Joe Morris vibes us out with a stunning balearic house tune, Cloud Nine. On remix duties we are thrilled to feature two masters of the balearic house scene, Max Essa and Coyote, who lend their signature sounds to the mixes, with label boss Aimes bringing up the rear with an uplifting flip of the original
Disco/Nu-Disco
Wonder Stories heads over the pond for their 24th release finding the Aussie/UK collaboration between Dawn Again (returning from his excellent EP on WS019) and UK underground champion Rothmans (known for his vinyl only label of the same name). Psychedelic, melodic, and grooving are the name of the game here with 'Timeless Odyssey' venturing into melancholic ethereal territory while 'Rainbow Perch' is an uplifting and bubbly affair. On remixes, Timothy J. Fairplay submits a jacked up sleazy version of 'Timeless Odyssey' while Emile Strunz tackles 'Rainbow Perch' into a 4/4 techno stomper with a new wave ethos.
Minimal/Tech House
Here we have another Tech-House/Techno EP from Zooted and Booted Records... "Are You Ready"! The original mix by Dylan Debut and David Coker is a four to the floor bassline smasher that just keeps building and building until its deep analogue twisted cords send you in to a trance with solid 909 hats that sizzle all the way through. There's also the solid jacking house mix on the EP by none other than Mr deepjacking, Tommy Largo, that will shuffle its way through any bumping party, keeping it dirty and deep until the a.m. There's no stopping this EP as next on the list is an ultra-sweet deep and chunky mix by those classic Ornate boys Jonno & Tommo. This mix is hot and late night too but with some twisted extra layer and bumps that will send any man or woman crazy!!! Last but not least is the upfront dance hall thumper by none other than Eddie Leader, the bad man behind Hudd Trax. This mix has lush added extra keys and a solid old school analogue feel with some dirty little rave action running through it, but still keeping it in tune with today sounds and production. This mix would sit seriously well with the sun coming up at 5 am dancing on a beach surrounded by palm trees and thousands of party people! Play loud!
