absolutely essential record right here - the underground solution aka the s man aka the legendary roger sanchez is a name that you should all be familiar with by now. and his 1990 anthem luv dancin is an nyc deep house benchmark. that s right. this originally came out in 1990. that s a heck of a long time ago. thing is. this record. when played at the right time will still cause maximum damage in the club. riffing on disco classic is it all over my face and with elements of the bottle interspersed with a deep. rolling garage bassline and dreamy keys and pads sanchez crafted a solid gold cut. a timeless piece of dance music that still inspires today and is often imitated yet obviously never bettered! the flipside cuts deep in my mind and afterthought are also sublime exercises in the deepness. the s man s trademark eerie pads. bleeps and dope drum programming evident throughout. making these tracks huge hits from nyc to sheffield and beyond! this whole ep is flawless and if you dig the deeper side of this stuff then you re in for a treat - now s your chance to bag a bonafide. hands down classic record! luv dancin has been skilfully remastered from all original master sources and fully licensed and reissued officially for 2017.

during these days where lo-fi analogue house productions seems to be the it thing. its time to dig out a release by one of the true pioneers of house music. not an outsider but one of the names thats been around forever and thats known for several timeless house classics.
anchored between the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s. when industrial music courted funk. when electro(nica) made a shy appearance and house was visceral and plaintive. also inspired by current r&b productions and futuristic hip-hop. tropics of love is a slow tempo record that shines like a steel sun and rings diabolically romantic.

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.
after the great mojuba g.o.d.2 by chez damier it is time for some oracy action. its been a while since we heard from the creator of such classics as family day and mind dance. but now after doing a very fine remix for balance alliance in the meantime. he is back in full effect. the a-side bass mood is featuring a disco break styled beat combined with a sick acid bassline à a special track for that special moment on the floor! the b-side with funk advice is cooling things a little down. but in a way only a mojuba record can do it - some serious deepness is waiting for you!
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.
crosstown rebels assemble an a-star team of pioneers and legends for the next mammoth release on the label. touch your body comes courtesy of felix da housecat. jamie principle and vince lawrence aka the 312 with sublime remixes from moodymann.
the e.p kicks off with she can dance. a slow burning acid number that has elements of deep. grooving house from the detroit school. in fact. the second cut low control bares the influence of detroit too. with its murky. dubbed-out chords ala luke hess moving into a punchy bassline with minimal but functional drum patterns. proceedings get a bit more bouncy on the smoking hat. a quirky acid romp on the less daft side of ceephax. and the perfect soundtrack to accompany a feature-length documentary about.... a smoking hat. finishing up the e.p is fudge fingas remix of low control. the only man qualified to make an already deep as fuck track even deeper. theres been some on-point criticisms about a lot recent deep stuff getting lost in noodly jazz territory. but we are in no danger of that nonsense with fudge fingas at the controls: accomplished a musician he may be. hes never been one to lose the way. and this mix proves his deft and subtle remix talents. dabj done done it again. and hopefully this is the first in a long line of productions from vernon.
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.
