emg and john swing are back as vinalog with three surefire dancefloor tracks drawing inspiration from the european progressive movement of the late 90s. uncompromising and unsurprisingly raw stuff on relative.
vinalog’s new ep on relative delivers raging club music with 4 cuts balancing the uk and berlin sound with a masterful touch. the two mixes of “flashback” on the a side provide raw. nasty house with a punchy groove and luscious vocal samples. b side sees two variations of the same motif: “recall 97” has strong uk bass heavy influences with an acid touch and spanish-mumbling vocals. while “redub 97” is a more stripped down version of the latter able to deliver for the dance floor with a more broken-beat rhythmic pattern.
relative 017 features 4 unreleased house tracks by john swing. a solid 4 tracker bringing back the classic swing touch that s been influential to the labels peculiar sound. this is the first of a series of swings unreleased material. limited press.
cant stop listen the origlinal.. wow ...relative 16th instalment sees label head john swing back at the controls with a killer four track ep. the title track “get rhythm” comes with relative’s signature gritty house sound in its original mix while the arp mix shakes peak time dance floors with hypnotic arpeggios and rumbling drums. the b side opens up with a relentless african congas ride boosting the rhythmic section with an energetic afro feel. the -other version- closes this meteoric ep with a deep. jackin cut-throat groove.
