perc & truss’ statement of rave intent “leather & lace” returns when you least expected it. this time in the form of three new remixes from an all-star cast of producers. leading the charge are perc trax’s breakout starts of last year ghost in the machine who build upon their trademark kick drum volley with reese basslines. swearing pads and a stretched out arrangement that showcases all that they are capable of. flip it over and tectonic main man pinch takes a different approach with his uniquely bristolian take on techno. featuring everything from primitive computer bleeps to the kind of broken rhythms he and his label are known for. closing things off is the wildcard of the set as mumdance and logos step away from their weightless sound to serve up a tough. acid driven take that nods it’s head to the classic sounds of bonzai and eye-q.

assertiveness can be virtue. hence. boss moves - luca lozanos debut for running back - is aptly titled. generously spread over two vinyl plates. lozano investigates the hybrid sound that once was embodied by groups like future sound of london. labels like guerilla and djs such as sasha or dave angel. blessed with the production of skills of today. the eyes of a tailor and the chemoreceptors of a perfumer. the klasse wrecks and grafiti tapes man delivers nine tracks that do it all: tribal. trance. breakbeats. house. 303s. bleeps. rave. dubby deepness and pianos. like a trip down the 3d-visual-kaleidoscopic-artwork* hole or a snake charmer without a flute. intake as a whole. record it to your tape desk and feel like tuning into on a pirate station in ‘95. happiness is just around the bend. *none of that can be found here. see explosive black-and-white sleeve for further reference.

greenvision is the collaborative brainchild of two esp institute artists. juan ramos and luca trentini aka trent. both longtime fixtures of berlin’s infamous playground known as cocktail d’amore. separately. these two explore their own very personal avenues of expression. putting their time in the trenches and endlessly polishing their works (this makes juan’s third release with the label). but when their efforts overlap we’re gifted a view into their uncanny synergy. juan and trent channel an exorbitant amount of smoke-fueled creativity. building layers upon layers into music so dense that the bulk of their studio time might then be spent navigating and formalizing their output into tangible tracks. greenvison’s collective debut with the esp institute showcases three intense cerebral workouts. banana paradiso. rambutan and the color of maracuja. an array of experiments pulling from all the corners of the duo’s imagination—it is disorienting. cacophonous. introverted and psychedelic. but at the same time playful. melodic. euphoric and undoubtably arresting—guaranteed to induce hallucinations under proper circumstances. we welcome the induction of greenvision to the esp institute. and with us as your guide. we welcome you to accompany on our descent into their abyss. try not to get lost.

a heavyweight classic! don t laugh is one of those records. you know you ve heard it. you may not who. what or where. but you know it! the original winx mix is a classic. often imitated. never bettered. but the real gem here is richie hawtin s manic. almost borderline sinister 15+ minute reworking. monster doesn t do it justice. tweaked out. narcotic. minimalist jacking gear. a dope combination of severe low end and some bracing sine waves that cut straight through. this one will surely test any club sound-system. if the venue is built for it you will know! this is one for the real heads. pure late night business oft overlooked for the more famous a-side. but trust us - hawtin s mix will smash any dance! oh. and there s an insane laughing acappella for those who want to mix and blend! reissued. remastered and re-sorted for 2017
