best effort records jumps out of the box with their inaugural release ’number one’ - a selection of tracks that celebrate friends making music together. cold emotion are danny wild and rory stenning. the duo explore improvised club music using various keyboards and modular synthesisers. “toast” is a track taken from an extensive live recording session from 2015. accidental cv messages create unexpected cyclic baseline patterns while keyboard melodies float freely above jacking modular beats. the result is an imperfect. inspired club jam ready for any occasion. -cantao- pitches things down from the hypnotic frenzy of -toast- to offer a unique hybrid between computerized dub. subaquatic g-funk and triphop ambiance. canadian content! -manipulate me- is a collaboration between ivy barkakati and phran. the stark. alienated quality of ivy s spoken vocals & dark subject matter sounds even more claustrophobic and sinister backed up by the duo s frigid machine-funk. which is more in the spirit austere & icy 80s coldwave than modern house music. metric systems are a duo from somewhere in australia. the fathoms-deep -adaptation dub”. recored in 2009. is reminiscent of australia s after-hour dub technicians sheriff lindo or andy rantzen. look out for a full lp later in the year

latest in line to lend their expertise to el diablo s social club s evergreen edit arm are italian stallions dj rocca and n2b. who the hot jocks and disco dancers may remember from to rack & ruin vol. 6. the sleeve may have changed but the menu stays the same. nothing but prime cuts and seasoned sides to savour under flashing lights and starry skies. taking the controls in tandem. rocca and nic cast the net wide and dig deep to serve up four courses of dub disco and proto-house delight.
something from nothing is a four tracker that fuses techno sensibility with house swagger. a voice calling to detroits second wave while a hand beckons the shadowy waters of house. hearts of darkness are immersed in late nights and smoke-filled basements. with past form seeing them play fabric and bugged out! an unhealthy loyalty to vintage hardware and long forgotten code means their music is analogue. not for fashion. but because it feels right. on the a.sequential circus is purest machine funk as a driving bass bubbles into self-oscillation. next. just on for the ride bounces to a millennial deep house swing. flip it for a dense future dub workout in charlie don t surf. then hotshot closes with a pad soaked vibe for the discerning warm up. a melting pot ep with all the right ingredients. something from nothing opens the door to hearts of darkness. step inside
for his maiden voyage through space. shan (victor shan. if it matters to you. and it should) offers good to me. a pair of revelatory dancefloor productions inspired by many a long night and early morning spent at the legendary frankfurt institution robert johnson. a finely-tuned specimen of durable. architectural sampling. the 12” title track runs a rigorous course of breakbeat rhythms and classic chords while a diva’s pleas are made and answered within seven minutes of perfect primetime rave. on the flip. shan churns through metallic stabs and primed drum sequences for the devious “version 1.” shan spent close to four years perfecting “version 1” through various dancefloor demos. no more evident than in the stunning arc of this sought after jam.
portland producer strategy is back with two unique house cuts. his wide range unique music is released from 100% silk. kranky and endless flight. a side. >luna< is very unique sound which is difficult to categorise. but if we say. it is like detroit techno remix of synth pop ... b side. >the saga< is his trade mark dubby house sound but bit more gorgeous and uplifting.
chairlift present takes on several cuts from acclaimed second album >something< by some of their favorite producers. showcasing how their songs can easily be adapted for the club. appropriately titled the 6.15amix. spanish equipo fantástico john talabot and pional turn >i belong in your arms< into a balearica-infused club-closer. a nifty piano line and seductive rhythm take the song on a late night (or rather early morning) trip to the beach. while carolines voice is being warped into something from outer space. photek takes the same track to a whole different place with his powerful jungle interpretation. martyn respects both the pace and rhythm of sidewalk safari. yet exchanges the clean production for a rather more cosmic beat. incorporating many of his signature touches to compliment the sinister >i m gonna hunt you down< lyric. dan careys dub mix of >sidewalk safari< shows a more playful side. while arguably the most intriguing remix of the package is the fields take on >met before<. recalling his early work it is so warped and layered you may struggle to imagine the original minus the smallest of hints.

the music has come into my life when i was about 9 years old. thanks to one of my sisters tape with songs by bob marley and the wailers. so i switched from reggae to dub. from dub to jazz. from jazz to radical improvisation in a moment.now i m 33. and after producing pretty much any kind of music. i want to put together what i still like of dub music with that of the south of europe. which is the place where i grew up. melting everything together with vintage equipments and working with modern machines at the same time. playing and producing this music has been therapeutic for my head. making all this known is for me like seeding again the love for music without any distinction. andrea gabriele 1981 - 2015
