since their inception in 2013, east london duo payfone have been breathing warm-blooded soul into their unique machine-fuelled groove. drawing the dots between the white isle and nu yorica - by way of london s narcotic nightlife - the pair conjure a rhythmic throb and soulful devotion all of their own. together, phil passera and chieka ononye buzz along the fault lines of classic r&b, cosmic disco and acid house, injecting their sound with 21st century syncopation. adhering to a strict no samples rule, their manifesto demands that everything be 100 percent original. it s a formula that s worked well so far: the pair have been widely tipped across the blogosphere and are currently linked to celebrated us imprint golf channel recordings. following three sold-out releases for the label, they return with another pair of discreet bangers, justified and we are chains. the tracks turn up the heat on their previous releases, again offering the vocals of performance powerhouse louis howard jones whose lyrics spark with a political punch.
a negative hallucination is an idea that was first put forward by sigmund freud in 1890. he used the term to describe how a hypnotised person could be led to be unable to see a person or thing that was right in front of them once out of the hypnotised state, creating a gap in their reality. sadly, this gap in reality seems endemic in the minds of many in the world, whether from lack of access to facts or from wilful ignorance. the result is the same regardless: a world where many oppressed peoples reality is edited out of the conversation. noleian reusse (half of africans with mainframes) and thomas cox (one third of pittsburgh track authority) got together in the studio in pittsburgh during a week of extreme social unrest in the usa in late 2015, resulting in these recordings. the tracks are crafted with a stripped back electronic funk and a stark, relentless feel that reflects the energy in the air at the time. as long time fans of politically and socially charged music like public enemy, underground resistance, nwa, dopplereffekt, and gil scott-heron, noleian and thomas have taken these influences and mixed them with their own styles to come up with a modern dancefloor version of those ideals. lead track solidarity fills the whole a side with its optimism. soulful melodies and strings conquer the driving rhythms, bringing a sense that through sticking together, a better future is possible. the b side s perspective is darker. police state is a crazy raved out banger that combines gritty acid and harsh tones that channel the day-to-day existence for far too many urban people. the third and final cut, surveillance, is a paranoid, spacey techno track that would be ideal as a soundtrack for closed-circuit television video reels. this snapshot of urban life is tied together through artwork by andrew burger, whose mix of throwback style and current ideas nails the dystopian existence that is now reality as predicted so long ago by orwell, huxley, lucas, and many more.
following on from their hard hitting previous release quarantine , east london s phil passera & chieka ononye deliver their 4th release as payfone on new york s golf channel recordings. a side catholic central emerges from a dark street corner to bloom into a moody synth and bass heavy rhythm, before colliding with a disco riff that could have easily been borrowed from the master tapes of late 1970 s atlanta outfit brick. featuring the vocal style of argentinian pia gonzalez antar, who in confession recalls the dark dynamic of a relationship with a previous lover many years her senior. the room shaking b side comes courtesy of d marc cantu s haze mix that delivers a pounding late night electronic soul voyage. cantu has been releasing genre defying records since the late 2000 s, and performs as one third of jakbeat super group x2 alongside traxx & jtc. ï¿¼ golf channel every time !
taking chris munoz s (aka the sexicans) take on sometimes from the forthcoming spike remix lp orange cloud version as its starting point, golf channel favourite justin van der volgen shunts this bad boy that little bit further through the doors of the club, puts something on its tongue and kicks it into the big room.beefy drums, a stoopid fresh bass line, big vocals and a tough, explosive, rocky guitar riff ensure this one has anthem written all over it.flip over for 4 more unheard spike gems, little lost nuggets that didn t find their way on to the much loved lp orange cloud nine but need to be heard: you can do it is much in demand already amongst those that know, and the closing cut careful is a fragile beauty.
following the success of 2014 s ii , gala drop are back with a new single, nova . side a comes mixed by their principe discos homies niagara. we re in familiar gala drop territory here... floating psychedelic guitars & synths entwine with the deft drumming and intricate percussion, all weaving a psychedelic spell that transports you to the band s sunny world. on the flip lisbon s maestro deejay tiago takes us further into the same world, but via a different route. soulful keys and gentle congas ease us down to the beach to soak in the future jazz. pretty much, the message is... all about sunshine golf channel every time !
pagan robot sex, burning effigies, witchcraft & dark stinky funk. i don t know what else you could want from a record. or a party. a welcome follow up to 2014 s house lp of the year (test pressing) sees the now unmasked dean meredith & ben shenton project navigating new waters, possibly off world. you decide...
san franciscos very own pagan anarchist acid rave sons dj spun and jonah sharp team up with skate punk legend ray stevens ii and liquid liquid / fist of facts sal principato for their sophomore release on golf channel. a short sharp shot to the head, its hot is a fast & vibrant piece that evokes bygone, punk, no wave, genreless days - and at a fair clip at that. the bonus beats strip it down to the skeletal for some voodoo business while the columbus hotel mix is a version that sounds like nothing else you will hear this year. industrial techno tribal goth dub vibes for 2075 and beyond!
new york endless is the first appearance on vinyl of new jersey born new yorker dan selzer. you may not have heard of him, but many of your favourite producers, bands and djs massively respect his record collection and ear. many of the sounds he has spent years exploring and djing can be heard via the three tracks that make up the strategies ep. elements of techno and house, idm, italo-disco and new wave, cosmic and kosmiche, krautrock and a certain debt to the new york school of minimalist composers all appear. the music is pure and (mostly) analog while still centred around accessible melodies and clean synthesized tones. golf channel every time!
they are back! after *saffron* and *fox* stormed the clubs last year eric duncan and dean meredith unleash another double headed monster that will detonate the dancefloor! we have nothing more to say - game over! golf channel every time!
raised in haifa, israel, now located in amsterdam, this duo of sonic explorers have had acclaimed releases on a host of cult labels like psychostasia, underground quality, dekmantel & many more. having already released the incredible *release the golem pt. 1* & *jewsex* on everyones favourite nyc label, the pair make ready with their most claustrophobic and menacing outing yet. the original version on the a side stays in the same tempo territory as their dekmantel classic *african flower* but concocts a much more spacious and heady atmosphere, reminiscent of mark gages vapourspce project. side b takes us directly to the dancefloor, utilising the same bubbling bass sequence but transposing it onto a devastingly propulsive rhythm track, like the angry cousin of their *bleached roots* and *powow* classics. a formidablle force in modern dance music, at the height of their powers!
two heavyweights of the modern dancing variety team up for the next pair of releases on the unstobbale golf channel! rhythm odyssey is a production alias of the one and only dean meredith (chicken lips, goat dance etc) here he has teamed up with dr dunks (eric duncan, rub-n-tug) and the duo have crafted some deliriously good retro chicago rooted dancefloor cuts, with that all important psychedelic twist…
rhythm odyssey is a production alias of the one and only dean meredith (chicken lips, goat dance etc) here he has teamed up with dr dunks (eric duncan, rub-n-tug) and tis second part of their 2 12 series, the duo have crafted some deliriously good mid-tempo balearia, circles could be a long lost remake of e2e4, and has sunset moment written all over it. >glow< takes the same ingredients and transports them into early 80s dubbed out territory - superb!
dvs hits the psyche/kraut rock bullseye with >only love<. ably assisted by thomas bullock, this compellingly motorik, spaced out song punctuated by heavily effected blasts of guitar, sounds like a lost classic. the b side features mix 2, a beatless version that lays the vocal and guitar elements bare. superb.
nice price deal !!! brand new release on the celebrated golf channel label. already causing much online and mixtape fervour from a handful of tps released late last year, this is sure to be another sought after cult classic from the catalogue! dominik von senger may be something of a mystery to most, but his early 80s kraut rock / electronic work on german labels f³nfundvierzig, harvest & verabra have become firm favourites with kraut-rock afficionados and balearic types alike. wonderfully melodic and suitably epic >no name< takes its cue from this fertile era of deutsch muzika and updates it for todays ears and dancefloors, with the kon tiki voyage mix especially spicing up the structure of the original into a more toe-tappingly beautiful piece. the real deal folks! in short, another totally essential hole in one from gc - dont sleep!
emotional response and golf channel come together to release a special collaboration between montezumas rache s christian pannenburg (record loft) and jan shulte (muller/ bufiman) and legendary krautrock guitarist dominik von senger (the phantom band / dunkelziffer). a meeting out of the love of vinyl, where panneburg hails von senger to source phantom band rarities and an idea of working together was born. following the success of the percussive heavy debut wu du wu on second circle, the return to the studio for christian and jan shulte and this resultant ep is a true coming together of cross-generational minds. unfolding across 3 songs of subtly and beauty, mood, structure and atmospherics form in a post-balearic meets psychedelic haze. lilting piano start before dub bass and dominik s refrain melts its way in rheinfahren. voids open, minds expand, felds walked, oceans crossed, seas parted, wind pushes against the face, rolling hills, cloudy skies, sun, sand, love, lost, found, deeper and deeper it goes in to your soul. the uber flow continues at a slower pace with tangerine (krauter mix) taking things down but carrying the interplay between artist s continues as if made for each other. guitar hooks in multiple layers, finger clicks, pots n pans vibes gently taking you from formentara to tisno, malibu, tulum or wherever your heart lies restful. finally, guten morgen bromio is the (bro)mance to end any affair. hip hop roots, jan s mouth-harp underlaying, dominik s licks and christian s dub fx laiden spector commandments shuffle together until group vocals bring them finally to completion. a wonderful ep bringing together 3 artists and 2 labels for the love of music
i was deep in texas when a call came through... -hey man it s cherry ! ...we got some sick new shit for you, gonna blow your mind- i waited nervously for the package. it arrived two weeks later. i slipped the hot black acetate from its wrapper and placed it on the turntable... wired guitars wail like banshees on heat, primal beats erupt drenched in dark juice from roots of trees slick with crunk. flutes and bells hang like exotic flowers that reek of jungle sex and all night long the pulse goes on and on and on as usual cherry was right...this most surely is one sick motherfucker of a record. don t get me wrong there s warped beauty here aplenty but you gotta take it easy. don t ingest it all at once...make sure you re in comfortable surroundings, trust me i know...six months later and i m still feeling the burn. damn you cherry garcia.

on a fishing trip two years ago, the two main guys behind africaine 808: d leyers and nomad - went to a tackle shop to buy some creepy crawlies (saltwaterÂ worms), not knowing that they were about to make a life changing discovery. in front of the shop a blind man was jammming on a little electronic organ, stomping his feet, singing, growling and basically making a scene. the boys were quite impressed with the fella, who introduced himself as blind double d . they offered to bring him home and record him. he turned the offer down, but offered instead that they could record him on the spot in front of the tackle shop - if they bought him a bottle of good bourbon. he explained that he would never set foot into a studio again in his life: he was sick of music production and the music industry in general, and that he just wanted this bottle of bourbon and to be left alone. the boys got him the bottle, and recorded blind d.d. on the spot with a tape recorder they borrowed from the tackle shop. unfortunately, the tape was stored in one of the tackle boxes over the trip, and some of the creepy crawlies crawled into the tape and stank it all up. this added some extra funk to the recording. with dirk and nomad s usual studio trickery and production skills, they created the two versions of this very very funky, creepy, stanky track. we hope you ll enjoy it as much as we do.
acid house pioneer jaime read is one of the few uk artists who has had the dubious honour of being ripped off by chicago house royalty. never one to let this early setback hold him back, jaime has gone on to an illustrious career, producing great music since the early nineties, and more recently in collaboration with legendary uk deejay felix dickinson under the name l.h.a.s. inc (larry heard appreciation society) this 4 track solo ep sees him mastering a variety of styles. the opener is a dreamy emotional r&b number called is it real what u feel? which features a gorgeous vocal turn from jaime himself. kaanlile floats a sumptuous melodica line over some mellow electro influenced acid. deep cut rolling dreams has slinky piano, soaring house strings, more vocals and strong ecstasy vibes. finally, a night in shirley closes out the ep in a beautiful boogie influenced, relentless but mellow groove
finally the dudes behind the fantastic hell yeah recordings step out into the limelight on their own with their debut ep of on golf channel. and what a debut! tracks range from blissful, boogie influenced house music (adriatic bolt) to the 1992 style primal scream psychedelic chugging banger (quando) via sunny acid (quiet force) and deep emotional vocal led ambience (i don t care who you are). just as you d expect from the amazing sounds their label has put out over the years, this ep is uncategoriseable in the best possible way we look forward to hearing more from the aptly titled balearic gabba sound system, this is just an aperitivo, or is it a selection of antipasti. either way, it leaves you ready for the next course. golf channel every time!
late night dweller todd modes can be found deejaying around detroit playing anything from offbeat ambient grooves to spaced out disco jams. he released the todd modes / bobby dolo ep on the cult underground label m1 sessions, and as cosmic handshakes with dial 81 they put out an ep called the delicate details . now he teams up with golf channel s own wild man mike severson from the psychedelic disco rock outfit heroes of the galleon trade. after a session one night, the two step out for a cold one and bump into burly biker bar bandit randy winter and the singer song writer sex visionary emily infinity. after a few drinks they invited them back to the studio and the vocals were set. put on your jean jacket slip on your leather boots and ready yourself for a night thrill ride. golf channel every time !

ahead of their highly anticipated debut lp due on golf channel this fall, the berlin duo drop this little taster. the heavy, percussion driven analogue sound that is their trademark comes in two tight packages. the title track is all snaky rhythms and squelchy riffing and comes complete with exactly the kind of dense, break heavy remix that we would expect from compatriot, and top buddy of the band, wolf muller. flipside revanche is a sunnier affair, deft touches on the acoustic guitar and lighter percussion, but no less the party starter because of it. golf channel every time !

from a basement studio in hackney, east london comes payfone s 2nd release on golf channel - quarantine b/w padre, pray for us. following on from 2014 s extremely well received paradise heater, payfone continue down a similar path for the a side quarantine. featuring once again 24 year old vocal powerhouse louis howard jones, quarantine is a semi auto biographical take on the hardships of a an underprivileged youth, set against a tough phil passera production that sounds more new york city 1984 than new port county 2004 (jones was born and raised in cardiff). cruising at 120 bpm, the dark funk guitar intro gives way to some heavy slap bass and deep synth that touches michael jackson s thriller before the direct and brutal vocals of jones hit you right between the eyes. padre, pray for us is a bizarre afro-cuban inspired homage to passera s italian father sergio ( who s telephone call can be heard on the songs intro). featuring the lethal trumpet of former cuban military private eikel venegas hernandez, this instrumental takes you to the pinata party via downtown lagos. golf channel every time !
mark e s incredible re-edit of janet jacksons r & b junkie track was around in super limited quantities last year and never made it out on export from the us & uk as all copies sold out instantly. marks acclaimed releases on the jisco music & running backlabels have had everyone from giles peterson to moodymann going nuts for his trademark extended and dubbed out takes on classic disco and dancefloor cuts. a seriously in demand record & another all ears sureshot ! repress 2015

two pieces of snarling filter house from nyc heavyweights robbie busch aka dj mcboing boing - record dealer to the stars, digger extraordinaire, & dj of sweaty underground parties around the world, and josh dunn - one part of the sorely missed 100 limousines, and one third of the holy trinity that put on new york s legendary foreal people party. for two guys so deeply immersed in the rich history of urban dance music, from the blues & gospel through deep disco, soul, chicago and detroit sounds, you could be forgiven for expecting to hear a rich homage to the sounds of the past. instead we get the future ghost of ron hardy playing the record backwards on a janky turntable with a quarter for a counterweight and fucking shit up in every conceivable way. these two are chiefly concerned with moving things forward, having some fun, and taking no prisoners along the way. golf channel every time !
earlier this year i received three tracks of hazy brazilian dancehall-psych, precise bursts of trembling energy and breathless meaning, invoking cellular consciousness, seed consciousness, the brain of cellular life... odes glorifying the dna code...i gazed up at the grey gate of heaven with a foreign eye and yelled >what is this shit!?< i got my answer: >cherry garcia man...thats all you need to know<.no further questions! golf channel every time!

last year saw the emergence of london disco outfit payfone. their debut 12 inch, titled *international smark* became something of an underground hit with lovers of disco, electro and balearic alike, sounding like a meeting between metro area, abba and 80s video game sensation *outrun*. now signed to golf channel, payfone is back with a weighty boogie inspired 3 track e.p. packed with muscle and modern pop sensibility. this second release comes co-mixed to perfection by in flagrantis sasa crnobrnja.

the central executives what can we say ? not much as it turns out - the generally very forthcoming golf channel crew are remaining tight-lipped about the architects of this, frankly mind-blowing debut long-player from this new nyc collective. a walk in the dark is exactly that, a situationist song-sheet & sonic chaperone to guide us through the back street escapism these troubled times demand. from gently over-driven punk funkin mascara stained hymns, to house that has been thoroughly smudged to the edges of its live music incorporating limits. sitting very comfortably, in a moment of stewed elevation alongside sound signature style machine jams, bare bones vocal led improvisations, discordant arthur russell moments & the distorted reflections of roots house that run to the very core of the big apple. a drop-jaw debut then, that wears its influences proudly, but takes them somewhere entirely new.
berliners dirk leyers and nomad expressed their hard earned musical freedom in a dogma: the use of a roland tr-808 analog drum machine in every single track. they programmed the machine to lay poly-rhythms over multicultural drum and percussion tracks, fascinated -and sometimes puzzled- by its own characteristically sudden swing and accent changes, and named it: africaine 808 - their third and first female band member. in the first year of their musical joint venture, the three spent quite some time in remixing and editing some of their favourite african and island funk tunes, transforming the old gold into modern dj and dancefloor friendly tunes. the sound of organic grooves mixed with 808-beats and analogue synthesizer basslines became soon a trademark sound, and more and more samples got replaced by live played guitar, bass, organ and percussion. the trio experimented with different tempos and styles ranging from slow cumbia and exotic rumba themes to island-funk and percussive disco, electro and house. in spring 2012 they first took the project to another level, turning their tracks into a full live act at one of the vulkandance nights in berlin. today the project is growing and integrating guest musicians, drummers, percussionists and vocalists - for live performances as well as for recording in the studio. 100% sonic voodoo golf channel every time!
spike wolters quartet of self released lps which surfaced between 1981 - 84 have become the stuff of legend. an avant garde collection of solo tracks, combining guitar, drum machines, synths & vocals into spacious, fx laden compositions which stand firmly outside of the era in which they were created. its a lo-fi, but broad selection, taking in experimental pieces, alongside taut post-punk workouts, and more laidback steely dan moments. the sixteen cuts on orange cloud nine have been lovingly compiled from those four early 80s lps by golf channels phil south. its a limited single vinyl package, with custom artwork from perks & minis misha & individual download code.
the allstar collaboration continues, following the previous bestselling golf channel releases from these two heavyweights rhythm odyssey is a production alias of the one and only dean meredith (chicken lips, goat dance etc) here he’s teamed up with dr dunks (eric duncan, rub-n-tug) with a view to concocting the very finest analogue assembled proto house and modern disco. ‘saffron’ has been ripping up floors since a handful of promos surfaced before summer in insistent piano motif powered along by beefed up but never bullying drums ‘night addict’ on the flip pitches things down and links up a bubbling acidic arpeggiator bass with dismembered vocals and light touch keys. a bouncy little palate cleanser after the spice bomb on the a.

dj nature aka milo steps uponce again to the indispensable golf channel label, with his eagerly awaited debut artist album comprising all original material. a founding member of legendary bristol sound-system collective the wild bunch (which spawned massive attack, tricky and much more), nature made nyc his home in the early 90s & went on to collaborate with the major force crew in japan, before hooking up with gc boss phil south, who thankfully persuaded him to don his production cap once again. there followed a series of acclaimed 12 inch releases through gc which developed a trademark sound, a sound he’s fully realised on >return of the savage<. natures unique take on modern black music is somewhere between the bass heavy sound system cuts on which he cut his teeth and the more nuanced vibe of peers like theo parrish. irresistible, low slung and beautifully structured yet raw club pieces make up this outstanding selection - a superbly packaged gatefold double lp, complete with download codes for individual tracks as well as the mixed version.
