Peanut Butter Lover EP (180 gram white vinyl 12")
Cat: HONEY 002. Rel: 05 Feb 18
  1. Peanut Butter Lover (7:05)
  2. Bummi (6:35)
  3. Made In Montana (6:53)
Review: On their second 12", the Honey Butter crew prove themselves to be experts in the arts of mellifluous house jams, just like their name suggests. Leipzig's M.ono has previously been spotted on Rose Records, Heist and Nite Grooves amongst others, and sounds in fine fettle on this smooth sailing 12" of feel good house jams. "Peanut Butter Lover" has it all - dreamy pads, throbbing bassline, lingering piano. "Bummi" meanwhile aims for a clubbier feel offset by chirpy vibraphone notes, and then "Made In Montana" rounds the EP off with some deft keys and an overall deep atmosphere.

  4. Garrison (6:30)
Review: 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.

The Spoils (limited heavyweight coloured vinyl 12")
Cat: VST 2142. Rel: 04 Nov 16
  1. The Spoils (feat Hope Sandoval) (5:39)
  2. Come Near Me (feat Ghostpoet) (4:56)
Review: Given their famously slow work rate, Massive Attack have been relatively prolific of late. This is their third 12" of the year, following the collaboration-heavy Ritual Spirit E.P (which featured, amongst others, estranged former band member Tricky), and the limited edition Dear Friend. The two tracks showcased here also feature guests. Hope Sandoval joins 3-D and Daddy G on A-side "The Spoils", adding her evocative, fragile vocals - think Liz Fraser on "Teardrop" - to the Bristolian duo's lusciously orchestrated trip-hop backing track. On the flip, things get altogether darker, as Ghostpoet narrates us through another of the pair's paranoid, late night moments. It's arguably the stronger of the two tracks, which is saying something given the overall quality on display.

Lait De Coco (10" + postcard)
Cat: AS 003. Rel: 13 Jul 18
  1. Lait De Coco (vocal) (3:40)
  2. Lait De Coco (dub) (4:00)
Review: Maya's "Lait De Coco", a deliciously glassy-eyed chunk of mid-'80s Gallic pop with a decidedly Balearic bent, has recently undergone something of a revival is serious selector circles. Since copies of original 1987 7" copies have been known to change hands for eye-watering sums online, Attic Salt Discs has done the decent thing and offered up this tasty 10" reissue. Particularly alluring is the flipside Dub, which in true '80s instrumental style flits between spine-tingling ambient passages, delay-laden vocal selections, twinkling piano motifs and an even more glassy-eyed take on the warm and loved-up backing track. That said, the sax-laden A-side vocal version, the epitome of soft-focus European synth-pop goodness from the period, is also superb.

Review: 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.

  3. Source (6:06)
  4. The Haze (6:49)
Review: Larry Heard and Ron Trent aside, few are capable of producing house music as deep, soulful and lilting as largely unheralded Maltese producer Melchior Sultana. Further proof supporting this bold claim can be found on the producer's latest EP. Opener "Phased" sets the tone, with Sultana smothering a deep and groovy house rhythm with toasty bass, dreamy Rhodes chords and twinkling, delay-laden electronic motifs. He brilliantly slows things down on "Quitness", a jazzy, hip-hop tempo head-nodder rich in fluttering flute lines and eyes-closed electric piano solos, before doffing a cap to classic Italian deep house on the sumptuous "Source" and impeccably melodious "The Haze".

Review: Having previously melted our hearts with the fantastic Qi Xin Mian Guan EP on Pleasure Unit, Lithuanian duo Miskotom cruise up to sister label Pleasure Wave for this extended trip into exotic boogie territory, where the sound palette of 80s new age is alive and well. From the jazz funk undertones of "Hyenas Laugh" to the spiritual lilt of "Senoi," this is a record designed to make you feel at ease. "10th Day" gets slow and seductive, "Kuai Can Che" plays around with more danceable rhythms and "Kopiec" gives us the ambient palette cleanser that every great record needs at the end.

MM 001 (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: MM 001. Rel: 02 Oct 17
  1. Amor Y Odio
  2. Running With Me
  3. Instant Illusion
Review: Coming to life on a hazy cloud of natural instrumentation and meditative composition, Modern Manners tap into the appetite for delicate new age musings beautifully on this debut release. "Amor Y Odio" is laced with Spanish guitar musings that spiral out over a simple but effective drum break that harks back to classic downtempo, while "Running With Me" edges towards a more sprightly lounge headspace while retaining the rich musicality felt on the first track. "Instant Illusion" is propelled by a bassline that wouldn't sound out of place on a house track, but here its punching out in a subtle, laid back environment that aims to get you horizontal in the most sophisticated way possible.

MM 003 (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: MM 003. Rel: 08 Jan 18
  1. Timeless Vibe
  2. Azzahar
  3. Middle East Manners
Review: 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.

  1. Research
  2. Can Maneras
  3. Serate Cosmiche
Review: 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.

  2. Amalgam (Roman Flugel remix) (9:17)
  3. Amalgam (Frank Butters remix) (6:42)
Review: Not An Animal continues to grow into one of the most intriguing labels operating in London on the exotic beatdown axis. Recent releases by In:State & Guili, Ess O Ess and Bogdan have all pushed an agenda of psychedelic, energetic groove business, and now this debut appearance from multi-instrumental trio MODXI builds on this mantra with a sprawling voyage powered by snaking rhythms and seasoned with sax. Then the mighty Roman Flugel gets drafted in for a remix that injects some cosmic synth sweeps into proceedings along with a strong undercurrent of minimalist beat constructions. Frank Butters seals the deal with a distinctive take on the track that draws a darker energy from the source to create a seedy, synthwave interpretation perfect for moodier dancefloors.

  1. Rheinfahren (8:21)
  2. Tangerine (Krauter mix) (6:33)
  3. Guten Morgen Bromio (5:41)
Review: Golf Channel and Emotional Response embark on a mission to bring together two generations of Kraut excellence as Dunkelziffer's Dominik Von Senger collaborates with the Montezumas Rache pairing of Jan Schulte and Christian Pannenborg. As you'd expect, the resultant EP is rather fine. They set the tone with "Rheinfaren", where a low-slung, dubbed-out groove is complimenting by twinkling guitars, delay-laden Jew's harp parts, and other sun-kissed elements. "Tangerine (Krauter Mix)" doffs a cap to Tangerine Dream and Dunkelziffer, with tumbling guitars - some effected by a wah-wah pedal - and vintage synths combining to create an effortlessly Balearic mood. Closer "Guten Morgen Bromio" is a fuzzier affair, combining grooves and sounds reminiscent of Pink Floyd's Animals full-length with the out-there attitude of classic krautrock.

  2. Pilot (3:10)
Review: Sample-digging beat-maker DJ Mitsu The Beats has been churning out blazed grooves and hazy, head-nodding workouts for well over 15 years. You'll find a fine example of his woozy, laidback and emotion-rich approach on the B-side of this Mukatsuku Records outing, which marks his first appearance on wax since 2016. While that track, "Pilot", is all warm Rhodes lines, toasty bass, Vibraphone flashes and crunchy MPC beats, it lets A-side "Let Go" shine - it was made in collaboration with Kaneko Takumi from Cro-Magnon and features spacey, Herbie Hancock style synthesizer lead lines stretching out over rich Fender Rhodes chords and shuffling, bossa nova-influenced beats.As played by DJ Spinna, Kid Koala etc

  2. Take It Personally (Exclusive unreleased instrumental) (1:30)
Review: Mukatsuku's latest must-have release offers another opportunity to own early Freddie Cruger AKA Red Astaire favourite "Take It Personally". The wonderfully dusty, smoky and life-affirming hip-hop-soul cut first appeared as a Swedish only CD single in 2001, before later being included on the Stockholm stalwart's 2006 debut album "Soul Search". This time round, the inspired original - all head-nodding beats, sumptuous strings and sugary-sweet vocals from guest Desmond Foster - comes accompanied by a previously unreleased instrumental take. This vocal-free version is superb, offering listeners a chance to wallow in the quality of the Swedish veteran's bumpin' beats and intoxicating, head-in-the-clouds production. In the record box of Danny Krivit,DJ Spinna, Kid Koala and more! Only 300 hand-numbered copies and strictly no repress.

Review: For the fourth volume in Mukatsuku's ongoing Jazz Classics series, label boss Nik Weston has decided to reissue two lesser-known gems from the nu-jazz era. On side A you'll find Kirk Degiorgio in As One mode, laying down a sublime chunk of sultry jazz bliss that comes laden with virtuoso horn playing and some superb keys-work from then session player Jamie Odell (AKA Jimpster). It was recorded almost 20 years ago, but sounds timeless. Equally as impressive is Butti 49's "Spiritual Radiations", a bright-and-breezy, soul-flecked chunk of jazz positivity that sounds like Rotary Connection jamming with Kyoto Jazz Massive.Juno copies come with an exclusive hand-numbered obi strip not available at other stores plus branded sleeve & sticker.DJ support so far from Spiritland,Faze Action,Nicola Conte, Kalita Records Chris,Nick Emanative,Simon S,Steven Tang and Kay Suzuki

  2. Bye (1:25)
  3. I'm Ready (4:11)
  4. Forget About Me (6:48)
  5. Weak Education (5:33)
Review: Having made his name under the Chet Faker alias, Nick Murphy has decided the time is right to revert to using his given name. Missing Link is the Brooklyn-based Australian's first EP since ditching the alter ego, and is arguably less conceptual than some of his work. He begins with the experimental, electronic indie-pop fuzziness of "Your Time", before going all psych-rock on the acid-fired blast of "Bye". He brilliantly joins the dots between woozy, sun-kissed Balearica, yearning electronica and crunchy indie-pop on "I'm Ready", while "Forget About Me" - which boldly flips from quiet, string-laden contemplation to low-slung punk-funk midway through - is undeniably one of Murphy's most impressive tracks to date. Jaunty, funk-fuelled EP closer "Weak Education" isn't too shabby, either.

Review: Shimmering slow-mo soul from Berlin's Luca Musto. Smoky, unhurried and loaded with delicate emotion, it's another Balearic motherload as we're plunged into foggy trumpets and jazzy swirls on "Let Me Down", immersed in whirling reverse tones and dusty Bonoboesque haziness on "Once Upon A Grind" and taken on a bluesy one-way trip to Norway on "Parabel". Loire's deep chug remix seals the deal. Stunning.

  3. Spring Ball (Simon Haydo rework)
Review: Polish studio boffin Naphta seems to be a producer on the rise. His most recent EP, Solar Empire, created memorable deep house tracks out of humid instrumentation, loose percussion and curious South American influences. Here he's at it again, offering exotic, sun-ripened grooves for Axel Boman and company's Studio Barnhus imprint. "Palm Trees Love" has a little more lazy disco flavour, with glistening guitars, snappy handclaps and a warm, dub-influenced bassline helping to create a particularly Balearic mood. There's an even more humid, South American feel to the choppy "Spring Ball", which is also turned into an hypnotic chunk of heads-down tech-house - complete with Batucada drums and intoxicating electronic noises - by remixer Simon Haydo.

Review: Italy's Andrea Noce makes the perfect addition to Selva Elettrica's label, a collective of artists with a similar vision of electronic music. Fitting right in to the synth-pop-meets-coldwave aesthetic of the imprint, Noce delivers "Pray 4 Ca$h" as her opener, a house-driven slice of spacey pop that is further twisted into a more concrete club banger by Tormen Tonee. "Hawaii Bombay" is slower, drugged-out and tropical in its flavour, whereas "Magic Mirror" folds its heavy swarms of bass over placid melodies and luscious pads; anted-up and made bump-ready by a remix from Aufgang B. Lovely stuff.

Review: Nancy Noise has been a key player on the forefront of the Balearic scene since as long ago as the late 1980s (making appearances on various early Orb remixes and side projects), and the DJ/producer has enjoyed a new lease of life in recent years. Remarkably, "Kaia" is her debut solo single. The original version is the epitome of Jose Padilla style Balearica; a gorgeous fusion of Rotary Connection style instrumentation, flamenco guitars and eyes-wide-shut electric piano solos. It's accompanied by the grinning, dream house era dancefloor cheeriness of "Azizi's Dance" and two alternate versions of the title track. Man Power's quirky, electro-driven remake works well alongside Leo Mas and Fabrice's stunning house remix echoing shades of Joe Clausell and the golden era of Italian House music.

With the latter in mind, the Leipzig based label indeed makes a journey into that field of electronic music for their second release. Here, French producer Octave Diesis delivers an album full of melancholic yet thoughtful neoclassical songs. The songs live mostly from the enigmatic piano melodies paired with some well-thought synthesizer sounds he composed. Expect ambient environments and dramatic, soothing layers. A truly splendid debut release.

"Vyrgin Island" may well be the stand-out track on the record with its infectious flute lines, chiming vibes and sensual, punchy bassline, but don't overlook the blissful ambience of final vignette "Flying Whiles".

  2. La Terra Ed Il Seme (3:28)
  3. Electrik Flower (4:14)
Review: It would be safe to say that Gino Pavan's Magico initially sunk without trace when it first appeared, way back in 1980. In recent times, the original 7" has become an in-demand item amongst cosmic disco collectors. This limited reissue marks the first time Pavan's tracks have appeared on 12". "Magico" itself remains a fine example of space-rock/disco fusion, with winding synthesizer lines rising and falling over a rubbery groove and spacey, sustained chords. The synths come to the fore on E.P standout "Electrik Flower", where spiraling melody lines ride a pulsating, proto Italo-disco groove. The more low-slung "La Terra Ed Il Seme", which makes excellent use of Tony Allen style drumming and fluttering flute solos, is also fantastic.

  1. Little Flower (feat Chloe Sevigny) (5:47)
  2. Little Flower (instrumental) (5:39)
  3. Conga Blue (6:47)
  4. Conga Blue (instrumental) (6:48)
Review: Any new release from husband-and-wife duo Peaking Lights is worth checking, and this surprise single on their Two Flowers imprint - their first for two years - is no exception. While their psychedelically inclined leftfield pop is always colourful, it's rarely quite as bouncy and confident as "Little Flower", where Chloe Sevigny talks seductively over undulating synthesizer melodies, kaleidoscopic electronics and an almost military style rhythm track. Arguably even better is B-side "Conga Blue" (available in both vocal and instrumental interpretations), which moulds their usual hallucinatory pop with dub disco and synth-wave flourishes. It's one of those tracks that just gets better with each successive listen.

  1. Phantom Band/Linear Johnson & The Protons - "Rush Rush"
  2. Drums Off Chaos - "Drums Off Chaos"
Review: The sadly departed Jaki Liebezeit was the kind of drummer whose influence will be continually recognised over the decades to come. Best known for his work in Can, there are also many more sides to this singular sticksman, and Emotional Rescue has chosen to shine a light on his post-Can period living in Stollwerck. On the A side of this 7" curio is the sound of Phantom Band with Linear Johnson & The Protons. "Rush Rush" has a spiky new wave bent to it, but still Liebezeit's drumming stands out. The B side "Drums Off Chaos" need little explanation - it's the sound of one of the all-time drumming greats letting rip in a ferocious blast of percussive abandon.

Review: Plevna (an alias of Horatiu Serbanescu, long-time contriver at Future Nuggets and co-founder of Steaua de Mare) presents its first full EP.

After incubating for almost 2 years while extracting and forging gems in the south-east space-time anomalies, the untraceable sound of Plevna has reached the optimum balance between eighties delicate nostalgia and contemporary local oriental melody. Bouncing on the delightfully twisted 9/8 groove, this is a unique contact with a multiverse under meticulous construction, an excursion abundant in haunting tunes and unfamiliar melancholy.

  5. Risk It (1:02)
  6. Being (9:03)
Review: First Word's first release of the year and Quiet Storm's first substantial release since his album The First Day, "Human Being: The Short Story Of A Reed" is a beautiful conceptual narrative that explores the idea of a reed yearning to be human but discovering it's not quite as easy as it looks. The music is, however, as beautiful as you'd expect from the Parisian composer. Ranging from the soft pensive vocal texture allure of opener "Human" to the eventual dizzying bewilderment of the finale "Being" by way of stimulating chapters such as the lucid bossa "The Reed" and the eerie, night fog horse ride "Risk It", this is a stunning, stirring piece of work that reveals more and more on every listen.

  2. Non Dire Notte (4:16)
  3. Prati Bagnati (2:18)
  4. Bava (2:10)
Review: Given that Balearic Gabba Sound System are big fans of Walter Del Vecchio's work under the Quiroga alias, it's little surprise to find him popping up on the Hell Yeah label they call home. Like many Napoli-based producers, Del Verchio is a master at joining the dots between languid, synth-heavy Balearica, pitched-down deep house, and the kind of kaleidoscopic electronics that were once the backbone of Italy's dream house movement. All of these elements can be found on superb A-side "Viaggio A Tulum", alongside some blissfully brilliant electric piano flourishes. On the flip, he slows things down to a mind-altering pace on the dubbed-out acid trip-hop of "Non Dire Notte" and presses the button marked "drowsy ambient" on "Prati Bagnati" and closer "Bava".

Review: Following releases from the likes of L.U.C.A and Ad Bourke & Rotla, Quiroga makes a welcome return to his own Really Swing helm on this super-smooth disco dreamboat 12". "Cups & Balls" builds with a Latin bass momentum and subtle disco emotion and "Ciao Fischio" takes a splash into the sunset shallow end with lazy beats and dreamy keys. "Citta di Mare" lights the final candle with touching delicacy. Far away organs, forefront breaks and a sense of space so vast you feel you could float away, Quiroga is really on the summertime money right here.

Pene D'amore Part 1 (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: CDA 019. Rel: 02 Oct 17
  1. Surdinia
  2. Meccanica
Review: Having previously popped up on ESP Institute, Juan Ramos teams up with Trent to form Greenvision, making their first appearance on the home of freshly squeezed discoid deviance, Cocktail D'Amore. "Surdinia" takes over the A side with a bombastic array of peak time devices in its utility belt, from bubbling acid tweaks to gluttonous monosynth leads and a chunky set of drums. "Meccanica" is no slouch either, laying down thick slabs of synthesized grease in pursuit of a different kind of party track. This is unusual, distinctive club music for those who want the crowd to stop and pay attention.
