one of detroit’s best kept secrets. rick wade has been producing late night tracks and tapping into the essence of deepness since the 90’s. known for their universal appeal and appearing on over 20 different labels worldwide. soulful. timeless grooves are his signature. growing up in buchanan mi. 1 hour outside of chicago he was influenced by chicago radio station wbmx and the salsoul material and local stations that played the likes of al green and isaac hayes. in 1993 rick and dan bell started harmonie park to release house material and in 1995 rick started another label bass force primarily as an outlet for the booty / bass material that he records under the big daddy rick moniker. this time rick brings us “the depth charge ep”. three tracks of lavish organic deepness. with jazzy rhodes-chords. strings. trumpets. warm lush big sounding pads. combined with soulful vocal samples and crisp beats. london’s westlake72 contributes with a stunning remix of “be there”. injecting a fierce disco groove and vibe.
all tracks were produced during a one-off session on the shores of bretagne. more specifically on le cap de la chevre. using solely a mpc. a korg 03rw and a tx7. all connected to a portable generator. bottles of white wine and a consequent amount of oysters were also directly involved in the process.

after a lengthy hiatus. tuskegee music is back with a heavyweight release indeed: it features tracks written by detroit heavyweights seth troxler—under his young seth alias— and cult fxhe boss omar s. amazingly they were written 11 years ago and have been long forgotten until recently being unearthed. the first track here was inspired by a trip seth made to berlin’s club der visionaere in 2005. “it basically was me returning to detroit and telling omar about this crazy music i heard ricardo play during the day.” the result. ‘deep’(cdv 2006 mix). is a spine tingling atmospheric deep house track. the drums are lo-fi and loose. the bassline is a meandering thing that really sucks you in and soft. gentle toms tumble around the groove and encourage you to cut loose. then comes the experimental slow motion drum shuffle of ‘detroit after midnight’ which the pair made after “finding loads of weird records in his basement sampling them and making a classic mpc detroit cut.” it has the sounds of people talking as if coming from the room next door laid over a lazy and undulating bassline. and is brilliantly weird and sketchy. last of all. young seth goes solo on ‘luiza’s inferno’ five minutes of him jamming on omar’s ms20 with a warbling synth line coated in warm tape hiss and layers of dust. it’s a beatless piece that shows how inventive and ahead of his time troxler was even as a young man. this is a brilliantly unusual ep and another winner for seth troxler and the martinez brothers’ tuskegee label.

bologna s increasing influence on dancefloors across the world continues as hotly tipped lo-fi house duo nas1 drop their first release on their home town label. sorryforthis records and is sure to be a big moment for their burgeoning reputations. it s an eclectic. multi-layered 4 track ep that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with such minimalist kit to the extreme and includes a remix from sound signature legend marcellus pittman. vino cheenese. as the title suggests. is a leftfield rumbler that. once finished. leaves you unsure how you got there - but sure you enjoyed the journey. oriental synths flutter over a pounding bassline. taking you from gloriously lo-fi. serene moments to being inundated with beats provided by a simmons sds8 and akai mpc1000 that puncture the surreal atmosphere. the pittman remix removes any pretence of serenity and has more of an eye on the dark end of the dancefloor. the bassline is rendered more ominous and the beats more relentless and distorted. while keeping the leftfield vibes in tact. ag pini brings in a lower tempo. with punching industrial yet melodic synths coming in and out of sparse rumbling beats it feels like a kraftwerk track if they had grown up in detroit. the springer is the hardest tune on the e.p – with layers upon layers of crunching beats surrounded by howling. swirling high end synths. looping in and out of each other. putting almost an entire history of dance music in one brutal track.

monosoul is back on tieffrequent with 4 timeless and classical cuts focussed on the important elements of housemusic...with love for the dancefloors. clubs and basements of this universe... on the a-side you have „make em match“. a rough and steady house-groove containing a constantly bouncing bassline. a deep chord-pattern. a complex percussion-cluster and a well infixed electric piano...all elements are perfectly balanced. finalized and formed to a completed floorfiller. then there is „monument street“ after which the ep was named. starting really deep and minimalistic it developes to an impulsive und powerful song. organic pads. pulsating deep chords. a rhythmic bassline and well arranged drums make „monument street“ flowing impressively from start to finish. the b-side starts up with „hot concrete“. a blazing. drum-driven basement-groover. with a sharp deepchord which is wrapped-up in several padsound-patterns. monosoul creates a very own athmosphere. in combination with an impulsive bassline and a distinct percussion- ensemble „hot concrete“ beats time on the floor noticeably. finally „life on the red island“ as the perfect final track brings the „monument street ep“ to an end. it builds up by adding small bits and pieces very subtly to a point you recognize a pulsative deephouse beauty. the remarkable bassline and the concise and bouncing kickdrum are casted in a flowing deep sounded carpet full of hope. „life on the red island“ disappears to where it came from and leaves you with strong impressions. the „monument street ep“ gives an insight into monosoul s impressive understanding and definition of house music which you can hear on 4 tracks loud and clear...thank you!
