its been almost two years to the day since we ve last heard from our dear friend & resident grodno beat-smith funkyjaws. his legendary string of releases on our label over the years have been some of the most revered music we ve ever released. that being said, a fresh new 10inch from the man himself was always a question of when, not if. well, here it is.
ltd 10s vol. 6 welcomes uk native the last trip to gandahar to the family. his previous outings with our dear friends at city fly & most recent debut solo ep with dc label better listen records have helped pave the way for his very own two-tracker with us on kolour ltd 10s.
admin is someone we’ve had on our radar for a couple years now. his gifts of versatility and precise execution have paved the way for tunes that have remained in constant rotation for us over the years. we’re over the moon to finally be able to press up a piece of wax with him & where else better than kolour ltd 10’s?

when he s not busy in the studio or touring the world with his running mate hans (junktion) as fouk.. daniel leseman takes time for his own solo projects and we re pleased to be able to release two vintage daniel leseman groovers on a piece of 10inch vinyl for the 7th stop in our kolour ltd 10inch series.

if you have been following graeme clark in his solo disguise as the revenge or the stream of 6th borough project 12-inches leading up to this one, you should know what to expect here—deep, blissfully hypnotic sampledelia with track flows governed by the laws of extreme repetition. its a shame that trance means a particular subgenre of electronic music, because that term applies just as much to the effects of these tracks as anything tiësto has ever played.
given the space, clark and craig smith are able to utilize this formula over a broad musical spectrum, creating music in the full-fledged sense, one that traces a landscape of tempos, styles and emotions and a menagerie of resurrected sounds conjures up images of dusty record shops and tattered vinyl, musical spirits captured on wax. awesome!
