!!! 2018 repress !!! of nu guinea’s outstanding ‘world’ ep – the neapolitan duo is set to release new material on tartelet later in the year as part of the labels 10 th anniversary. the beautifully dislocated bougainvilles live lays out some warm analogue textures across a live percussion base, while the vocal edit of title track nu world ploughs a similar furrow to obscure 80’s afro-disco, with rich musical synth work over a pacey afro groove and undeniable jazz-funk flair. the flute mix passes over the vocal refrain from mix one and just gets down and wigs-out on those solos - an absolute killer! exotica dance club sounds like herbie visited the salsoul studios with his banks of analogue gear and jammed out into the small hours, as we head home on the beatless outro, all synth washes and lavish ear candy.

FEELIN SAD (INCL. KNOWONE DUB)
incl. very special new dub version from the knowone gang + the great original track from nick. feelin sad is a bluesy neo jazz deephouse track with effervescent changing keyslines & monotone organ moods.
walter merlin jones is a perfectionist. a presence in the house scene since the late 80s, the dj and producer has, over the years, created thousands of undoubtedly wonderful, but unfinished, songs – a staggering collection of musical bits that have fallen victim to his tendency to be his own worst critic. yet, that same perfectionism has yielded some of the most engaging dance music of the last decade, however scant – songs that are aural proof of his preference for quality over quantity. joness first dfa release, 2009s >ill keep on loving you/living without your love<, confirmed his commitment to this idea with subtle grace and slow, seductive rhythms. now, with graceful exit – which pairs joness talents with singer ellipsis, boston producer chas bronz and saxophonist jesse allen — the new orleans-raised artist continues to showcase his discerning ear, proffering music with a modern, evolved take on discos very best virtues.

TRANSITION (3X12 INCH LP)
underground quality boss jus ed is beginning 2017 in fine fettle, with transition his first album since 2014 heading up a spate of vinyl releases. the triple-vinyl set is full of evocative, immaculately produced deep house treats, from the alton miller style intricacy of the loop 222 bodin strasse and shuffling, yearning the day prince died, to the rich bass and dancing drum machine hits of medellin my new grooveland (inspired, apparently, by a recent trip to colombia), and the low-slung, motor city grooves of sci-fi connection. best of all, though, is the rushing positivity of spring is near, where intertwining synth lines bubble away over a fizzing, techno-influenced rhythm track.
dj honesty strikes back with the 5th release of his project honeydrop. he is doing it again with charming dancefloor dubs at his best.

NOTHING WRONG (REMIXES)
producer : nu guinea, .... tartelet records and the vinyl factory join forces for a release showcasing remixes from two prominent americans and a great dane. ge-ology and byron the aquarius of sound signature and tartelet veteran james braun deliver three outstanding remixes of wayne snow s feel good tune nothing wrong taken from his debut album freedom tv . the original version, produced by naples-based duo nu guinea, is an irresistible up-tempo funk tune that has been getting serious spins from some of the most respected selectors in the game. ge-ology s in-reverse-reflip mix is a trippy ten-minute journey through layered in-reverse melodies and subtle acid carried by a tight, stripped-back groove. the result is a hypnotic gem that sits comfortably in any late night set. byron the aquarius slows it down for his live mix adding a playful bassline, live drums, rhodes and synth almost reminiscent of kool & the gang s 1974 hit summer madness . tartelet mainstay james braun steps back into the limelight after years of silence with a highly effective club mix, combining his signature low-slung house grooves with wayne s backing vocal, turning it into something that is both pumping and exotic.

UNISON WAX 01 (VINYL ONLY)
special 2018 repress , unison wax 01 as a whole is an exercise in classy, reduced house for the summer generation. a-side -seize- crashes into force, with unapologetic bass that seems to be breaking at the seams. perfect for building or taking it down, its simple, four-four quality as dusty hats scatter and float around the top. then the keys hit, sizzling and singeing at the edges like they’ve been left on the grill too long, before the whole thing melts into the break. its hot summer garage house for late evening breakdowns. flip it over and the vinyl takes on a distinctive darker flavour. -groundhog- plays smooth, reduced house elements against a driving, deep bassline that rumbles and pushes you on. around that coils softly pulsating synths that swell in and away from you before the tooly, smooth finish reduces to a close. -special treatment- is smoother though. dusty shakers, jacking claps, druggy synths and a rolling, questioning bassline shows a deeper, darker shade of berlin house before it casually pumps its way to the close... and of course vinyl only

FROM JOY (3X12 LP)
a triple lp entitled * from joy * by kyle hall. the title is derived from the idea of finding a way to live life in a state of presence, detaching oneself from the mental, self imposed narratives echoed by society s traditions and judgements. we as people tend to be at our most honest and present in our childhood, so in some ways from joy serves as a mechanism and reminder to return to one s youthful energetic state. the 8- track album, all produced before 2010, is a homage to where kyle lived at the time in his father s basement on the westside of detroit on joy rd.

A DYING FEAST EP
for years nathan church has been cutting up floors in his native bilbao. recently the basque man s attention has turned from the dj booth to the studio. under his wldv (we love dolce vita) this iberian electronic inspiration has cast long shadows and brightened rooms with his blend of horror score intensity and disco exuberance. wldv arrives at the bordello with a four tracker of serious intent. sepulchral and sinister synthlines characterise a dying feast, nowhere more than in the haunting samples and clean drums of -a bucket of blood-. cold chords gleam with icy menace while crisp claps punctuate the entrancing funk of -danza macabra-. ecclesia toys with set parameters, exploring what lurks in the twilight between terror and titillation. this flirtation with the divine and the profane is plain to hear in the uneasy elegance and uplifting elation of -far, far away-, a work of steady kicks, unsettling extracts and soaring strings. this -feast- ends on a delectable note. keys dance and spiral in the intoxicating -laying down on cosmic dust-, an enthralling end to and enthralling ep.
