Review: STown 013 is the first release of the year! And it comes from one of our fav producers, straight from Paris: Chris Carrier. The man behind Adult only records and Sound Carrier. Is one of the most prolific House producers since the late 90's. He knows how to build serious grooves and funky beats. His "Colorful target box" EP comes with 4 amazing tracks. Starting with the catchy and funky beats of "Destiny", followed by the hypnotic and powerful grooves of "Colorful target Box" and "Pink Sparkles" and finishing with a timeless downtempo/hip hop beat "Always Forever". A strong release by one of the hottest guys of the scene. A Must!
Review: Slow Town's 17th release from Melbournes Luis CL is an ode to analogue jams. The Cran town EP shows what Luis CL (one half of the Zanzibar Chanel duo and co-founder of Ruff Records) is know for: Dirty but groovy drum arrangements, analogue synths and dreamy melodies and his kind of lo-fi and blurry mixdowns with definitely some Detroit influences. The three tracks were recorded in one take during his studio sessions.
Review: We have the pleasure to include in our catalogue a grooveless track by the outstanding house head, Da Sunlounge. One of the most prolific UK's House artist of the last 15 years having release music in labels like Detour, 2020Vision, Tango or Double Down.
Oh Momma was originally released on GoodFamilly records almost 10 years ago. We have been playing it for years now so we decided to release again this catchy house track including some fresh remixes.
The original track has been remastered and refreshed by Da Sunlounge for this release. A groovy track with catchy vocals and jazzy piano samples that drives you back to the early 2000's House sound.
On the B side The Groove Brothers (Jef K and Rhythm&Soul) and Rhythm&Soul made two reworks. The first one takes the original track into an hypnotic side with a huge basse line. B1, keeps the jazzy side with another piano sample and a strong groove. Both reworking the original cut by keeping the groovy and moody sound of Da Sunlounge's track.
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Repress of the 3th release of the label. The well acclaimed "The Groove Make". The most wanted release of our catalogue on second hand record stores! On this record one of Stown favorite fellas and admired artists Jef K (Silver Network, Paris) joins with SlowTowns label owner Rhythm&Soul to release this great pack of house beats and sexy grooves.
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Slow Town Records has really picked up the pace this year, delivering essential 12" singles from Riccio and QX-I, amongst others. Here, they round of 2014 with an EP of positively edible deep house from Fouk man Hans Peeman. In typical Peeman fashion, there's plenty of soul to the liquid beats and rich chords of "Prologue", while "Monologue" is an attractive saunter through classic Detroit deep house with the restless energy of a Chicago production. MR K-S remixes the title track, delivering a heavily percussive version that sounds like a plea to head towards the dancefloor, pronto. A touch darker and altogether heavier, it offers an excellent alternative to Peeman's eyes-wide-shut original.
Review: Thus far Lost City Of Atlantis has been spotted on just one 12", released on Emotions Electric two years ago and supposedly the handiwork of a producer active in the late 80s between New York and Detroit. Whether the providence is correct or not hardly matters, the most important thing is the quality of the tunes, and on this new release for Slow Town there's an abundance of hardware delights to get freaky to. "Secret Code Of 7" is a particularly bugging synth jam, while "Four" piles the swinging funk on heavy. This is certainly rough and ready house music, whenever and wherever it was made.
Review: Spain's Slow Town rarely fails to deliver the goods. Split, so called because it contains tracks from numerous artists, more than lives up to the label's rising reputation. It probably helps that the A-side comes from former Bent man and longtime East Midlands deep house stalwart Nail. His "Shake Back" explores similar sonic territory to Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt", whilst retaining the chunky, bass-heavy bottom-end recognizable from his releases for Classic, Shabby Doll and Robsoul Recordings. On the flip, there's an equally assured cut from London stalwarts Jonno & Tommo. "Wolf Spirit" is an altogether more tech-tinged affair, built around a restless electronic bassline, hypnotic percussion and woozy, late night chords.
Review: We always dreamt about releasing this EP in our label. Since we discover it, it has been heavy played in each Slow Town party. QX1 is in the town with an outstanding EP from 1992. One QX1 track with 3 different Mike Dunn edits. Just rad. Say You Love Me has been carefully remastered to reach the sound it deserve. Enjoy the ride and Say You Love Me!
Review: Italian vibe maestro Riccio continues his well-established pedigree for gossamer grooves with this beautiful disco duo on Spanish imprint Slow Town. "Never Go Away" is a strutting slap-bass jam that develops gradually as the string loop in the background opens wider and wider. "The Glow", meanwhile, hums with soft filtered deep house loopiness before strident strings fly in from nowhere on the fills, elevating the atmosphere with excitement and subtle unpredictability. Stunning.
Review: Slow Town's 12th release comes with a classy and timeless EP from Michigan's great producer, Gari Romalis. Releasing strong EP's through this past few years he's definitely making some noise with his great and prolific work. "One Machine One Soul" is a 3 tracker record full of deep and classic vibes. This kind of tracks that stills vibing over time. Enjoy the ride!
Review: Number 14th comes with some serious grooves by a new project of one of the first artist of the label... Salt is a perfect combination of old school House vibes and modern grooves. "Franck White" is a timeless track with a rising melody that drives you until the end and beyond. "Sedould" goes into another path with a never ending groove infected by some killer vocals. On the B side, Rhythm&Soul's remix of "Franck White". Taking the track into another dimension with tight beats and a modern House mood. A long and catchy rework. Another release made to shake your legs on the dance floor...
Review: Our 11th release comes from Hamburg duo Suburb. After solid releases on Quarter Notes or Thema the german duo delivers this 4 tracker release "Luv is common". A side goes into a deep journey through sweet chords and melodies with raw beats. B side goes into a more classic House feeling with two super groovy tracks with shaking samples. Luv is common is a beautiful piece of modern House music.
