UNDER THE GARAGE
o celebrate two decades of skylax records and a long musical partnership, dj sprinkles and hardrock striker team up as s.h.e. (skylax house explosion) to present the first of three exclusive vinyl releases accompanying the mix cd for the 20 years compilation. all three eps feature previously unreleased music personally curated by dj sprinkles and hardrock striker. under the garage presents all new music from move d, jason grove & merwyn sanders, an expresso and signal st as a referential homage to the 80s club of new york city, a space that commercially paved the way for the evolution of dance music (music of the “house”) as well as spaces around which queer communities could feel safe - all to the sounds of djs like larry levan and frankie knuckles. jason grove is a long-time collaborator with skylax, along with signal st who has released on its sub label - wax classic - as garage shelter, but for move d, it is his first outing on the imprint. move d is one of the few veteran deep house djs still touring consistently having started out in the early nineties.

THE SOUND OF STUDIO ONE (LP)
12" lp UK
the sound of studio one can be identified by the great singers that it cultivated along the many great songs that these singers released. but as studio 1 s dominance was slowly pulled away by the up and coming new breed of producers many of the artists would inevitably end up working for these new camps and so the songs and singers found a new audience. the reggae sound of the studio 1 would make a great combination and the man to pull this was together bunny lee.
MUNDO RITUAL (2X12)
trikk s follow-up on the innervisions imprint is an evidence for his deeply anchored exploration of combining the mystical modern and traditional percussive to create new visions of house.
swedens patrik skoog delivers the 9th installment in the parabel series. as a comparison to his previous albums each track on this ep is designed with a dark, smoke-filled late night club setting in mind and is filled to the brim with fm basses, snappy bright drum programming and eerie atmospherics grouping them all together as one unit. you can hear influences from each period of his near 20 year record making career, with eps in his name or under the headroom moniker.
THE RETURN EP
clash lion is a mix of three personalities, shall ocin, terr and daniel watts. three artists with different musical backgrounds merging forces to create a truly eclectic and open minded label. with an approach to release unique electronic music covering a multitude of genres from techno to retro electronica, their passion for innovative and experimental productions shows no boundaries. the labels debut release comes from maetrik, tantalizing us with an outstanding release. deep and dark warping modulation, twisting upon a bellowing low end is accompanied by searing experimental riffs slithering throughout cortex 11 - b ninex 7 û c has a low end drone of power, which builds slowing alongside a relentless hat before releasing into a mind bending synth pattern of pans and fluctuations. synth depth reigns supreme as the weighty beat kicks into gear, completing a truly mesmerizing maetrik 2 track production.
FIGURE JAMS 002
the second release on figure jams continues to pursue our new concept of pairing certain artists together, this time placing the seasoned swedish sound sculptor patrik skoog alongside abstract division, a collaborative project of paul boex and dave miller, two equally experienced dutch producers. the latter deliver a pair of straight-forward tunes that seemingly stem from the depths of space. with an intimidating backdrop of menacing and rummaging drones they carefully create a constant sense of alarming tension that is never lifted. this abstract threat takes solid shape in patrik skoogs slamming -the field-, a heavy hitter of immense magnitude that despite packing a bouncy punch still stays afloat thanks to its lightly dancing hats. another agile alien grooves closes the ep, with rides zooming in and out, slingering and cutting through the tracks subtly booming body
RAID THE RADIO / AGORIA RMX

0.81 EUR *
ltd 70% deal !! after the well received ep s by label owner patrik skoog and craig mcwhinney sample & hold presents 4 tracks from 3 artists on this va ep. rotterdam s radial occupies the full a side on here, one track being a utterly monstrous machine of rhythm, another showing quite a contemplative side to his music making. the flipside goes into an entirely different realm with skoogs slip where we find combined sessions of distorted, roughly drawn out sound sketches beneath continuous streams of paranoid sequences, flowing overhead. the brand new collaboration duo chain marks here their first release under this name with their contribution to the ep and deliver an instantly recognizable, and somehow nostalgic techno sound with their single take improvised track sunstorm.

for the first side we got counterstrike & zardonic going at it head 2 head with >when worlds collide<. this pa stomper is a brute piece of work. destructive rolling beats hammer your face in while the bassline peals your face off bit by bit. put your screwface on and start bashing to this one.
flip it over for a proper >mindfuck<. this is how we like to see counterstrike - heavy metal riffs combined with a snare that sounds like the garbage man is battering the dumpsters on trash day. like the tune says - lets get our mindfuck auwn!
CRUSH ON ME, PUSH ME
maetriks cocoon debut >snorkel< on the 7th edition of the 10 inch series belongs without doubt to the most successful tracks of the past year and is an essential track in the clubs since then, thanks to its matchless mixture of powerful deep house and noise. eric estornel aka maetrik is, however, definitely not a newcomer. with a large number of releases on such prestigious labels from the likes of treibstoff from cologne, dumb unit and steve bugs audiomatique platform, the texan-born and now resident of valencia has proven to be one of the most reliable protagonists at the interface between straight dark house, dub and funky techno. estornels aim was to stick to this recipe when he made his his first cocoon solo maxi: >crush on me< and >push< are two absolute masterpieces and are representative for estornels unique style, using hallucinogenic vocals, hypnotic beats and a power that is deep and latently noisy at the same time to put the dancefloor over the edge of insanity. with his third album >life index<, released on the london-based label crosstown rebels, and with other releases on guy gerbers supplement facts platform and on get physical, this spring seems to be totally under estornels sign
