Pick Up Your Needle (Initation Rituals remix) (5:55)
Review: Through the jungle mists come Alleged Witches, who hail from Slovenia and are the latest signing to R&S sublabel Meda Fury. Voodoo drum workouts and distant native tongues echo through the ages just like on the eponymous opening track. "Far East" merges the organic and synthetic gracefully in entrancing fashion, while "Pick Up Your Needle" (Initiation Rituals remix) on the flip entrances the listener with its wonderfully hypnotic polyrhythms. Pressed into eerie, marbled, black vinyl and hand stamped with that Meda Fury seal of excellence, this is vinyl only magic forest tracks for DJs.
Review: Rimbaudian aka DJ Seinfeld is back again on Meda Fury, with more lo-fi house sounds to truly bang the party! This will mark his third release in a year for the R&S sublabel, alongside releases on Ten Thousand Yen, Natural Sciences and E-Beamz: pretty credible really! Starting off the Houz Low EP is the title track: a hard hitting affair full of punchy, dusted down rhythms and evocative keys. Then prepare to get down to the retro rave of "Track 2". Pretty stomping this one was, with its ferocious breaks and classic rave stabs: where's the hoover? On the flip, the highlights were the unearthed speed garage anthem "Listen Up" and yet more neon lit retro '80's fare on "707020".
