edmondson first came to my attention with his lobster theramin distributed release. flamingo tripper. on his own label lissoms. or so i thought. turns out he was actually a guy who used to serve me in one of my favourite pubs in newcastle. back in those days he was a dub step / drum and bass kid. and as per the trend with all of those guys. hes now showing the house heads how its done. with a much keener feel for sound design. groove and a better ear for a sample than 90% of us lazy people who cut our teeth on a 4/4 beat. edmondson (or sean as i did know him and how i know him once again) is really one of the most exciting producers out there right now for me. and i couldnt be happier that weve reconnected and hes kindly allowed me me me to present some of his amazing music. we have love is an instant classic. and psg is a work of pure emotive art. to remix we have love. ive enlisted dauwd (fresh from his amazing album on technicolour). sean suggested him. and i jumped on the suggestion as he was one of the first people i met when i moved to berlin 4 years ago. and ive been trying to figure out a way of working with him since. he takes a we have love down a kind of more delicate and steppy route. its very pretty. but also really makes you want to dance. to remix psg i asked asok. again. i thought i first met asok about 7 or 8 years ago. when he came and played for a party i used to throw in newcastle. after becoming good friends over the years. we got chatting and it turned out that we were both in magaluf in 1998. and may have actually been involved in the same street brawl. thats not something either of us are proud of. but its definitely food for thought. i’m biased. but i think his remix is my favourite thing he’s ever done. and i love everything he’s touched musically to date. so thats probably an even bigger endorsement than it first seems. his version is big.

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.

the second vinyl only release from this impeccable label presents textures of true deep house with vapour rise and the mysterious beings beyond comprehension. a spoken word dedication to the light from a leading authority in the sound healing field. a call for us to find the higher purpose. particularly relevant in these changing times and finally chant of antara (meaning within in sanskrit) a blissful ambient piece created by layers of throat singing and ethereal effects. vapour rises is beautiful. melancholy. meditative. deep house following on from the classics like fingers inc who created the genre so many moons ago. the celestial vocoder vocal version notes our searching for meaning. looking into little light boxes (our phones. computer screens and tvs)

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.
