marcellus pittman s is back with his second ep of 2018 on his own unirhythm records. the jewel here is pittman s 2007 acidic masterpiece -there s somebody out there- getting the edit treatment from chicago s jamie 326, who whips the original into a hypnotic bender. -something like (a dream)- is an upbeat key-driven vocal house cut in pittman s flowing style with bits of vocals floating over the mix. -breathe beat- is a low key bouncer stripped down to the raw elements with floating synths hovering over a minimal shuffling beat
we are blessed with another 12- from marcellus pittman s unirhythm records. true to pittman s genre free approach to music - on this record we hear sounds from the ethereal to the creepy, from the dirty to the deep!
a modern boogie 7 inch on unirhythm!? yep, you heard right! marcellus pittman graces the a-side of the disc on *1044 coplin* - a nice slice of mid west funk sure to appeal to all the boogie heads worldwide. on the flip we have the unirhythm debut from detroits own john cannon. john c is a veteran producer and mc, most recently featured on the j dilla album *rebirth of detroit*. no suprise there - we definitely hear some dilla on *j.c.s groove*. essential!
after several months of -silence-, downbeat is here again. the 3 chairs member, marcellus pittman is the man responsible for -do you like music ep-. -our time is now- and -extra credit-, are two detroit-flavoured house tracks with sequences coming from mars and melancholic keys with the unmistakable marcellus pittman mood. the release is closed by -happy to be here-, a gloomy downbeat-hip hop track made with mpc.
7th sign warmly welcomes marcellus pittman to the label. with a distinctive sound that pulls together soul and electronic texture into a form without compare, marcellus already boasts a formidable track record. he is a member of the seminal 3 chairs alongside kenny dixon jr., rick wilhite and theo parrish. as if this werent enough, his remarkable releases on sound signature, track mode, fxhe, fit and his own unirhythm imprint have further cemented his position as the hottest modern producer around today. here we have three glorious tracks that show different sides to his character but all sharing a common purpose - to move bodies and minds.
the first edition of the unirhythm green series. two brand new, smooth as ice tracks from the motor city madman marcellus pittman. the a-side is >tom remix<, a dynamic dj tool that will keep the heads bouncing in the club. the b-side, >if the earth could talk<, is equal parts deep and dubby, but still has that lo-fi detroit grit in the sound. this is a record that will stick around in many djs crates for a long time. this record is the first of a series of collaborations between unirhythm and fit.
two new house tracks twisted, chewed up and spat back out on wax by marcellus pittman on his own label unirhythm. marcellus has had a great year of releases so far with his unirhythm green 12 inch and the well received ep on the fit sound label. this one is slightly smoother, jazzier, and still with that nice masculine pittman groove!
debut 12inch of this detroit dream co-op between theo parrish, omar s and marcelus pittman. rawer and harder than the last sound signature releases, this is a one-sided must-have 12inch, limited repress

bologna s increasing influence on dancefloors across the world continues as hotly tipped lo-fi house duo nas1 drop their first release on their home town label, sorryforthis records and is sure to be a big moment for their burgeoning reputations. it s an eclectic, multi-layered 4 track ep that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with such minimalist kit to the extreme and includes a remix from sound signature legend marcellus pittman. vino cheenese, as the title suggests, is a leftfield rumbler that, once finished, leaves you unsure how you got there - but sure you enjoyed the journey. oriental synths flutter over a pounding bassline, taking you from gloriously lo-fi, serene moments to being inundated with beats provided by a simmons sds8 and akai mpc1000 that puncture the surreal atmosphere. the pittman remix removes any pretence of serenity and has more of an eye on the dark end of the dancefloor. the bassline is rendered more ominous and the beats more relentless and distorted, while keeping the leftfield vibes in tact. ag pini brings in a lower tempo, with punching industrial yet melodic synths coming in and out of sparse rumbling beats it feels like a kraftwerk track if they had grown up in detroit. the springer is the hardest tune on the e.p – with layers upon layers of crunching beats surrounded by howling, swirling high end synths, looping in and out of each other, putting almost an entire history of dance music in one brutal track.

a booming clavinet led banger from everyones favourite disco uncles, eric duncan and dean meredith. heavy on the lasers and scything hi hats with a bassline as deep as you would expect from these fellers. marcellus trademark sound is all over his remix - sultry rhodes and sweet, driving funk, and the central executives version strips it to the bone, revealing not a skeleton but a robot. a robot playing a fucking saxophone! rock on, dudes. golf channel every time!
achterbahn d amours machinefunk opus, odd movements gets reworked with 4 sonically diverse remixes. detroit don marcellus pittman kicks things off with a massive, unsettling flip of holy roman empire. the italian producer chevel is up next with a virtuosic take on the lps title track. his cubist, artfully restrained version ends with over a minute of icy techno snap. convextion, as well, chooses to hold back for maximum impact, infusing the moody passagen with subdued electro bounce. finally, sw. imbues the duos konigstr with dubbed-out breakbeat pressure, occasionally allowing the original acid line to seep through a skittering rave rhythm.
the man behind lick my deck – shaun soomro steps up for lmd012. journey to delirium rolls with an intense and infectious hook, floating synths mesmerize while galloping drums keep the pace exploring the conscious state of delirium.
on the flip theo parrishs right hand man – detroit luminary marcellus pittman takes things down a different route by providing a mind blowing remix. lush analog synths, dirty/raw bass lines and playful keys carries the passenger to a dream like state where the fxhe and 3 chairs man takes you beyond the beyond!
