12" Vinyl UK02.03.18
there is no doubt that bobby moore is an absolute f***ing legend. and a true icon r.i.p. a hero who lifted the world cup for england at wembley. he is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of all time. and was cited by pele as the greatest defender that he had ever played against. a leader of the highest quality and a true inspiration to us all. we would love to say that neil diablo shares these traits and acomplishments but his bewuda ep is tribute enough to one of footballs gretaest ever captians. the ep itself is a remix record . the track is called bewuda. and what a track it is. a 6 min trancy club banger. 808 drums all over the place give it a 90s vibe but with mr diablos signiture italo feel. and what we can we say about his team mates. coyote. tiago & dawn again on the same record.yes please! the coyote boys dont mess around at all. straight into a ravey. sweeping banger.teasing balaerica but keepng it a fully loaded dance floor bomb.tiago does what tiago does. his signiture sunshine vibe oozing out of the track from start to finish. the drums are something to behold and the piano riff drop packs a real punch. and last but not least our mate from melbourne dawn again tears up the track and brings us a classic weird re-triangluation in true banging dawn again fashion. big record from team rothmans for their 15th release!
autodidact ventures into the area of jungle/dnb music with the first part in a series of two by selva massiva. a project by roger gerressen and alex jansen. on the b-side chris geschwindner takes both tracks and makes sure the ep is still suitable for dance floors with two excellent remixes.
piff records continues to unravel its catalogue by calling on an artist slightly closer to home. cardiff-based harrison bdp adds to his already prolific discography with an ep that spans from mellow dub techno vibrations. all the way up to wide-open. rave-driven acid riffs.
harrison’s a-side revels in a deep pool of soft bubbling synth chords. moulded to the backdrop of tight rolling drum work and occasionally teasing the wider. heavier energies to be found on the flip.
the b side ripples with ricocheting. delay-laden soundscapes. rock-solid drums lines. and nostalgic lead synth lines that make you glad that you’ve caught on to this talented producer early on in his promising career.

for house heads of a certain persuasion. dj duke is a name that resonates for all the right reasons. the u.s. veteran has been responsible for some of the 90’s most seminal moments. chiefly through tracks such as 12 minutes to do it (under his pleasure dome alias). party time and the prosumer-endorsed deep house classic. heard. he returns here courtesy of emerging imprint solo werks. who host his latest ep. green pastures. a momentous house-led workout. it compounds duke’s reputation as a producer of considerable panache while also acting as an auspicious start to life for the dublin based label. the title track is a grainy. old-school cut that bears all the hallmarks of a dusty analogue-jam and harks back to the days of vintage chicago with the sort of zest you’d expect from a man of duke’s credentials. the other original. skyscapes. is packed to the brim with industrial motifs and is characterised by the sort of effortlessly catchy baseline with which duke has made his name. mysterious and ethereal. it takes the listener on an uncompromising and throughly captivating house journey from the off. on the flip side. we have two stunning remixes. the first of which arrives from new jersey don. ruben candelario aka nicuri. a long-time favourite of nyc-based producers a la joey anderson. nicuri turns green pastures into a dreamy. acid-led space. adding layers of suspense and a glittering vocal intto the mix as he goes. last but not least are dublin-based producers slowburn. who serve up a stunning version of skyscapes. a carefully construed voyage into the deep. it caps off a fine ep with some aplomb.

deep and tripping stuff from argentine producer. ana helder.. the label say: ana helder. the argentinian girl with the special twist. is back with a hand full of tracks. they are mean. dirty. harmful. amorevolous. seductive and addictive. surrender tunes from a producer and dj that does not think in boxes. for müstique she looked into her always-growing production crate and found some post-punk waving funk odes. which want more than just to dance this mess around. they bring soulful lsd-melodies for jazz lovers with techno legs that like to get high on liquid liquid. they are electronic but yet so organic. and they move deeply while spreading the feel of a meditative rest. when diagnose heard them first. he came to the idea of writing a script for a flick that tells the story of a music-making machine. which has more to offer than answers. it forms sound with no traces of reality. but is so human that humans fear it. why did he think that way? only because of what ana helder recently got to say? well. let the music play

man power returned to his northern home for one last waltz. this is their joint offering for the esp institute. on side a. man power welcomes us with tistish. stepping slightly out of his comfort zone and employing a boxy breakbeat to create a dose movement. this contrasts his signature fatty bassline and together they establish a ground on which to stack layers of atonal square and sawtooth waves. about halfway through he introduces a massively seductive string lead and for the remainder of the ride this palette of sounds coalesce in dark orchestral beauty. on side b. man power’s cohorts last waltz deliver nee shitteru. a true stomper of a track complete with in-your-face toms and off-time percussion patterns. an intense driving acid line. and aggressive shamanic chanting. throw in some crash cymbals. sci-fi sound effects and a smattering of gamelan and it amounts to an overwhelmingly chaotic and psychedelic trip. these two songs will have you speaking in tongues.
lie of the land debuts on porn wax with an appropriately subterranean take on the acid house formula. amping up the delay feedback and weaving accomplished waves of melody in between the floor-minded components of the music. chapparal is especially deep diving. tapping into a late night mood for backroom beauties and beasts to sway rhythmically to. navigator has sharper edges. but is no less hypnotic and subliminal in its approach. the porn wax stamp is a trusted destination for left of centre tackle for stranger dancefloors. and lie of the land understands their unique vibe innately.

some might say jordan fields is one of the most criminally underappreciated figures to rise out of chicago in the late 90s. not for people who know what s what though. after a career spanning more than 20 years he has established himself as one of the key figures of the underground. coming out of where everything started. chicago. jordan released records on a handful of key labels like catalyst. track mode. som underground. mood groove. maffia. he did not stop there and today he is still releasing bangers having never lost that magic touch that has kept him firmly grounded on the purest form of the underground. and that. after more than 20 years is pretty much unheard of. when we first contacted jordan we wanted to go back to where it all started. we wanted to be transported to late 90s chicago. to a time where it was all about the dance floor. when tracks meant something more than songs. when purely club-oriented music was the purest form of the underground. to be honest we were not expecting to get exactly what we wanted straight away. he immediately sent us a collection of tools straight out of dat tapes he had. going all the way back to the 90s and early 2000s. so yeah to say that we are excited with this release would be a huge understatement. this is a collection of tools meant for the dancefloor. not reminiscent of some gone by era. these are the real deal. made by a true master. 20 years ago. for the future.
dark entries and emotional rescue team up to further explore psychic tv’s acid house years. psychic tv was formed by genesis p-orridge and peter christopherson of throbbing gristle with alex fergusson of alternative tv in 1981. after various line up changes. the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the house and techno scenes of detroit and chicago. by 1988 the group included dave ball of soft cell. fred giannelli of turning shrines and matthew best of carcrash international. during the summer of 1988 the group recorded a batch of songs at time square studios in london that would appear under the guise of various artists compilations jack the tab’ and ‘tekno acid beat’. the idea behind these ‘compilations of imaginary artists was creating a sense that a healthy acid house scene existed in the uk. virginia was the studio project of dave “mista luv” ball and then-wife virginia “gini” ball. a classical violinist who toured and recorded with siouxsie and the banshees and marc almond.
do yourself a favour and dance across the floor when listening to the new jacob korn-record. aptly titled son of gx. the music is heavily based on the good old yamaha electone organ. the home organ for the world s gentlemen was modified by jacob himself and is now an integral part of his studio. as you ll hear it on the ep. it injects a decent dose of fun into jacob s vision of house music. at least. you will instantly notice that when listening to singlefinger chord. a track that conquers the floor with its disco elements. rumours say that jacob s cat toddled on his poor man s yamaha cs80 when producing cats on organs. if that s true. the cat provided an irresistible hook to an already slamming. italo-inspired track. son of gx is every bit as compelling as the first two tracks with its synth trumpet glory while the slighty darker fun blocks sustains us with heavy percussion works straight out of the yamaha electone organ. on top. you ll get a remix for singlefinger chord by new york s jacques renault (let s play house) as digital bonus.
sometimes a year becomes 20. and this is the case with jesper bellfrog rydbergs second coming on borft records since his debut in 1997. as dj jespha galore. he is a super solid dj arranger and inspiration on the swedish electronic scene since mid 90s. and hailing from borft records friendtown helsingborg this record differs a bit from the traditional karlskrona sound and goes into softer territory with classic acidhouse sounds and friendly melodic funky electronic disco. at times almost bordering to italian pouch pouch vibes with shiny cars and prosecco. buy doubles and you got a cool little set bordering between acidhouse and electronic disco. / joakim cosmo

as with his previous offerings - that have found a home on the likes of red rack’ems smugglers inn. horn wax. ruff draft. plus his co-owned end of label boss imprint – cyclonix continues to explore the deeper and more leftfield spectrum of underground dance music with a futuristic vision. made up of two original tracks. ‘alien drug store’ ep draws on a host of electronic influences ranging from deep house to detroit beatdown. alongside subtle hints of acid house and dub techno. whilst both retain the producers trademark sci-fi aesthetic. the release is completed with a sterling remix of ‘you’d better not’ from a pioneering legend of the uk underground - 4hero’s marc mac. under his nu era guise. heading up the a side is ‘you’d better not’. a slow-grooving techno cut bolstered by punchy kicks and a rubbery bassline. where foreboding sci-fi vox samples are interspersed with dubbed out chords and crunchy offbeat snares. as the arrangement shifts from one mood to another. the sub-aquatic vibes of ‘two face’ follows. which is set to a hypnotic two chord pattern. 4/4 kicks and a lashing of moody synths that gradually entices you into deeper realms through the aid of rippling hi-hats and rhythmic percussion with a submersed quality. on the flip is marc mac’s nu era take on the 12”s lead cut ‘you’d better not’. who transforms the menacing original into a blast of uplifting broken techno. where the soulful musicality of sustained strings and piano chords complement snippets of the original’s vocal sample that drifts atop adept drum programming. bouncy synth bass and a flurry of glistening synth melodies.
following his chubby cheeks album for nosaj thing s timetable records. gerry is back with his new album. new junk city for ramp recordings.
musically. the suffolk based outsider-house poster boy has withdrawn from the ghetto-influenced sound of chubby cheeks. to more musical territory. sounding like the next step from his debut album jummy. keeping the jazzy samples. and adding layers of dusty synths and rolling drums.
this second half of 2017 quintessentials will offer a lot of south american music. like from our long time friend and regular guest soul of hex! hailing from tijuana. soul of hex (also know as sebastien vorhaus) has a rich. nuanced and grainy style with an authenticity thats closer in sound to vintage detroit or new york pastures. despite his mexican heritage. busy djing. producing and running his own label vicario ltd. soul of hex is a driving force in the mexican scene. his new helipop ep offers different styles like a downbeat intro. a deep bassy rough house cut (helipop) plus 2 back to oldschool rave/warehouse tunes not afraid using some uplifting pianos. catchy vocals and deep basslines. house music all night long!
whyte numbers follows through with an excoursion to georgia. where we found the mysterious will gates. on his debut ep. dedicated to his hometown tbilisi. you ll find 4 original cuts with no frills. plus a mellow acidic vibe workout by our man lootbeg. the record is sure to grab any listeners ear with mellow house featuring a host of fresh jazz and hip hop influences. adding to a beautiful use of vocal loops. he brings forth a refreshing piece of wax that creates another home run for both label and artist.
(180 gr) one year on since their last venture as black spuma on international feel. fabrizio mammarella. also known as telespazio and phillip lauer. one half of tuff city kids. are back with the insatiable orme ep.
room ii records is a new imprint run by two brothers based in london. which focuses on giving a platform to up and coming artists. ‘the black ep’ is the first in the series.
kicking off the series are three tracks by tr all varying in style and technique. soft pads and playful keys bounce along a grooving bassline on ep and every future summer set opener ‘fantasia’. ‘ub city’ is made up of field recordings taken from a recent trip tr made to india last summer. the flip side shifts again culminating in a live drum breakdown that’s supported by a subtle. acidic bass line - ‘10am acid jam’ is an outright dancefloor weapon.
sprouting arms and legs to emerge from his wetlands lair. mysterious scaled amphibian bufobufo leaps onto land to launch new vinyl label ritual poison.
the a side is taken up by the house sounds of “what’s that noise?”. a stripped back acid bit ready built for blowing up the floor. on the flip. there’s “parasol” - agaric electro served raw and deadly and “spider fortress”. eight-legged techno spun smooth like silk and tough as steel.
weiss blasts off via “brain fever”. where raw. mind-altering arpeggio bass. fuzzy drum machine hits. spacey chords and alien electronics thrust our hero skywards. think of it as techno for funk-fuelled. italo-disco loving astronauts whose journey to the end of the universe is only just underway. this intergalactic funk blueprint is explored further on the deeper and more melodious “you want a cigarette”. where weiss’s vocoder vocals wrap themselves around mutant tb-303 lines. rush-inducing chords and clattering machine percussion. on “space ghetto (booty)”. our hero celebrates the discovery of previously unknown worlds in the only way he knows how. with kaleidoscopic. full-throttle electronic motifs and funk-fuelled synth-bass to the fore. weiss offers his own unique take on electrofunk. pleasingly fuzzy and tightly wrapped in the syncopated drum machine handclaps of ghetto-house. it’s a typically far-sighted and attractive proposition.
an incredible. funked-out live show and production team with their own modern take on boogie. philly soul. and ny disco. xlr8r the possé are a new face to many people. the five piece run by andrew elston and ross ferraro is comprised of veterans from all over australia’s music scene. after a year of knuckling down in the studio and a string of sold out shows they’ve boiled down their favourite influences into an in-credible. raw. funked out live show and production team. watch out for the posse’s debut ep. our thing. featuring contributions from andrew elston (phy-sique/toni toni lee/catcall). ross ferraro & jarrol renaud (the goods). michael di francesco (touch sensitive/van she) and nz jazz keys prodigy andrew bruce.
greetings fellow lovers of abstract truth. how s living in a dystopian now working out for you? here s hoping a new birdscare release can help take the edge off... it s by zu dobson. and who s zu dobson? i honestly wish i could tell you. she approached me at an a.l.f.o.s. gathering of the faithful and gave me a cd of her work with nothing on it but a po address written on it. after corresponding by letter for a while we agreed that -apple knife- and -wisdom of rumi- would be the first release (of hopefullly many). i only met ms. dobson fleetingly and she has no on-line presence so her identity is vague even to me. so next time you re on the dancefloor that young woman dancing next to you could well be zu dobson. fondant regards... andrew weatherall

andras establishes a new home for his out-house productions with punp records. while house of dad laboured in detail. sanity targets club play speeding tempos laced with the larrikinism of boiler room. australian reality tv and shark siren cut ups. vinyl only takes a swipe at the 100% mentality with a stereo bassline threatening to derail the stylus. further sidetracked by being digitally available a week before the 12inch. on the p-side. 40k pulls swimmers from the bondi rip while sanitiser s simplicity cleanses the grease from andras former plumbing exploits. words by michael kucyk (noise in my head)
