t.v. baby is a project that came to life during 2016 in a makeshift hideaway deep within a remote corridor of industrial new york city. the romantic isolation of their decaying surroundings leant its vibe to the otherwise occupied musicians as they intuitively explored their formative musical experiences. while playing at shifting their roles around within the band. from these changing dynamics the close friends debut album dignity dont dance was born. it comes on the label deus records. an imprint that continues the great independent ny tradition of dropping highly danceable music with rootsy. rock n roll swagger.
on the heels of the two the other people place releases in the early 2000 s another related mini album was already in the works. it never saw the light of day due to james stinson s untimely death. finally it resurfaced on a long lost dat tape.

former half of the defunct pitch & hold duo under the banner of which he operated from 2006 to 2011. simon halsberghe steps up on brussels’ very own vlek with his debut solo ep as simon hold. first heard on vlek s 2016 mix for resident advisor as they were appointed label of the month by the highranking platform last autumn. maqam bruxelloise reflects the wideangle beauty and compelling diversity of the belgian capital and its throbbing heart. a city at the confluence of cultures and languages. across a finelylayered interplay of synthetic modulations and intricate polyrhythms. hold lays out a riveting kaleidoscope of patternwelded textures and prismatic synth motifs played and arranged accordingly to a contemporary interpretation of the traditional arabic maqam system of improvisation the track draws its title from. an ode to brussels allembracing effervescence. translating as -soft drone- or -pleasant noise-. the gritty dhajij doux then welcomes you into a more disquieting. bipolar audio scenario that evokes the reality of living -in a sometimes difficult and hostile city-. a curiously matching negative of the opener. in this that it taps into the same generous and plural matrix universe as main source of inspiration. but eventually opens on a more nuanced outcome. here hold clearly shows a further abrasive facet of his work: harsh and vibrant. the track may be replete with a leadheavy amalgam of sizzling bass and jagged drumwork thrown into the furnace. light and hope still manage threading their way through dark clouds and turbulence. slowly but surely turning this roughhewn stone into a truly haunting gem.
la-4a returns to delft for his first release on the label since last year s phonautograph lp. the a side comprises two beatdown acid house jams. with two versions of the raucous electro cut -snake eyes- on the flipside. heavy and uncompromising tracks that are not for the faint of heart. sick release!

winds swirl on a cold night. rain pelts thin window panes. alone sits a figure. eyes are full. his heart hollowed. riccardi schola is the man behind these images. his debut 12inch. on my mind. is a foursome of bitter break-ups and lonesome evenings. piano keys conjure up tears. mascara streaking down cheeks as wine bottles roll empty on heavily carpeted floors. vocals speak of pain. love sick melodies supported by slender snares. new wave echoes weaved with italo emotion for an ep of synthesizer solitude.
spring is in the air and matteo pepe. aka uabos. is taking away that winter chill with four tracks of house warmth and machine funk. acid bars float on crisp claps for the uplifting -mystic force-. the italian keeps the floor stoked with the sample strewn grooves of -copacabana- before the synths take over with the lush chords of -city woods-.-karmic souls- closes. meandering notes bend and shimmer on clean percussion for an exotic climax to an ep of ambitious analogue delights.

tokyo’s yoshinori hayashi makes his debut on lovers rock with “asylum.” an ep of deliciously bent avant-house and free jazz-esque voyages. hayashi has been making a name for himself as a formidable studio talent. and on “asylum” he offers some of his finest work to date. “agent dissolving device” welds louche narration. kaleidoscopic atmospheres and an energized girl-group hook to an earworm groove. an invaluable tool for adventurous djs. “so wrong it’s right” doesn’t begin to describe it. meanwhile. the b-side is given over to hayashi’s more sombre. quasi-chamber music leanings. “burrow” and “the old man” both use wheezing. wandering piano figures to articulate a mournful. bleary-eyed beauty that seems to flicker in the shadows of the a-side’s extroversion.
the lifesaver 3 compilation. the yet most comprehensive package of the lifesaver history. sounds like electro. sharp-edged like the vault in a hague bunker (lauer). provides data pop with piano crescendo (fort romeau). brings the style characteristics of german schlager music to the breakdance mat (rolande garros). lets the bulky lily-of-the-valley bells clang and sends the reverb tails away with the wind (benedikt frey). there are several new names to discover: felix strahd. benjamin milz. vincent feit. and of course there a many old acquaintances: massimiliano pagliara. orson wells. tcb. chinaski. roman flügel brings us “good news”. however: “from another planet.” and fort romeau feels “lost. again”. but in such somnambulistically beautiful manner that you want to get lost with him instantly and jointly find the great joy.
station shiva recordings launch with a 3-track ep from estrato aurora. one half of the pajaro dune project. this one’s heavy on the electro and takes its influences from the early days of chicago house and european rave culture.
Ähnlich wie bei tuff city kids selbst. geht es bei -adoldesscent- nicht um eine bestimmte stilrichtung oder einen sound. vielmehr ist es der ansatz der verschmelzung. und damit ist endlich der nachweis erbracht. dass die verschiedenen ecken des elektronischen musikspektrums wesentlich mehr gemeinsam haben. als man gemeinhin vermuten würde. aber was noch viel wichtiger ist und am ende mehr zählt als all das: es zaubert ein lächeln aufs gesicht!
cale sexton brings the heat and the beat with his first full ep on butter sessions! this 4 tracker features jacked up electro with sleep d. dubbed out analog jams in his signature style and a sax infused heart warmer with long time friend samual sax master davidson.
at 21 years old. mathis ruffing has already managed to craft a signature sound. elegant and mature with a focus on melody and texture. rewardingly diverse. the ep touches on several genres and influences. ranging from cosmic to earthy dancefloor cuts. acid. grime. proper electro. idm and ambient. the common thread on this record is the search for balance between heartfelt melodies on one hand and on the other a form of immediacy. raw and almost industrial. ruffing has no trouble finding this balance and adding five terrific tracks to the banlieue catalogue.
bound to forget by the models deliver three live cuts of raw analog acid house flavoured jams infused with minimalist machine based experiments aimed both for the dance floor and for your living room. on top of that the dutch duo syncom data added their own euphoric and hypnotic dub remix based on motifs from all three tracks.
