the rising london based label is quickly defining his own and unique sound laying down the law with another live jam recorded 4 tracks release by his own boss dothedu. following the success of the first release. senseverse records has came back with lost acids ep. a rough lost minded trip with an unusual sense of refinement. the producer lets the trip s curtain rise with lost acids which takes us to a gloomy hidden place on the edge of the house and techno roots with a banging 909 and crescendo 303 which dives smoothly into the background own producer s voice. colombine acids explores the happier stage of the trip and keeps the sound on the thin line in between the 2 genres with his fat kick and the flying and clashing crashes. the b1 throws us right back deep into the dark with a slowed down and mentally twisted remix by the very well known producer florian kupfer. finally early acids rings down the curtain s trip with some fine classic house music sonorities that lead us to a dreamy and dancy closing.
support from: ben ufo (hessle). oli_n (phonica). ander b (robsoul). eltron john (uncanny valley). simon caldwell (fbi radio). herzel (hivern disc). nori (posivision). sascha funke. nathan g. dmitry (neo violence) acid influenced many of us. in fact. for a huge proportion of us. acid kicked off this sweaty. painful. yet incredibly fulfilling journey. the 2 originals by dircsen utilize the 303 in different ways - the opener ‘beyond collapsing silence’ sounds like an instant acid house classic with its energetic drums & dreamy atmosphere. whilst ‘depth scan’ slows it down. focusing more on hypnosis. rounding off the 3-track ep is an idiosyncratic remix of ‘depth scan’ by l.i.e.s. legend. florian kupfer. a dubbed out original gets well and truly saturated.

not content with already steering the vigenere and oscillat labels and appearing regularly on will & ink and lazare hoche. malin genie has launched his own self-titled label as a vessel for his most intriguing twists on the house and techno template. the record strides in with the tracky tones of hypothetical island of stability. a feast of micro pops and squiggles strapped to a rock solid beat. fudeoroshi is more overtly minimalist in nature. using the barest of ingredients to make a potent dancefloor cut. bulbocavernosa opens up the filters and lets a little nasty acid fun and games into the mix. and then mer neith it es rounds the record off with a soaring slice of melodic. deep techno that stands confidently apart from the rest of the tracks.
framework recordings is back with a very special. limited run vinyl ep that features five fantastic artists in oliv. o’hana. blurred. fred and ground16. and deep house doesn’t come much finer. first up is the low key oliv. part of the heady party collective bedford crew. his ‘submarine cruise’ is an effortlessly atmospheric dub house track. sandy shakers. balmy pads and an astral lead synth line all ooze underground class. o’hana is another emerging producer with an already well formed sound. his gorgeous ‘lune’ is another prime bit of deep house with analogue kicks and hits. subtle vocal samples and cavernous pads that melt into the horizon.
blurred are a young italian pair from labels like lapsus. safe music and hotfingers and keep up the cultured dub house vibe with more deeply enveloping grooves and dusty hits. the chords here are smeared in the background and sure to find favour with the more intimate dance floors out there. then it’s to impressive new swiss artist fred for ‘mw.’ it’s deep and house-y again. but this time it drives forward on huge kicks. with acid lines and icy hi hats bringing the energy while yawning synths soften the edges. closing out a tasteful package are swiss pair ground16 with ‘3rd street.’ cosmic in nature and with wide open pads. this house groove is another analogue beauty with warmth. smart vocal snippets and dreamscape pads. these are timeless deep house cuts that are deceptively simple and superbly executed.

crushed by its own supermassive weight. ‘gravity well’ then condenses escape earth’s love of jungle and hardcore into a 128bpm stepper of rumbling low-end. polyrhythmic beats and otherworldly melody.

dirty funk house from colombia! with heavy remixes by seb wildblood (church). retrogott (ava. money sex) & dj qualle and pontchartrain. felipe gordon is new to the scene. but entering the house world now via toy tonics in a heavy way. just watch that remix package: felipe gordon has some massive fans already. he knows a few dudes and he has some cool releases coming on church. s3a records and intimate friends. in fact felipe is throwing some of the biggest underground house parties in colombia along with his nómada records crew from bogotá. and he is making tracks. too. dirty bangers. with a certain unique vibe. he used to play in bands before switching to samplers and getting addicted to old disco and house vinyl. you can hear that: his moody. raw tunes use samples of rare records. but selected carefully. adding his own juno 60 or moog synth chords (like on tell me something true). often using minor keys and lot of little noises and short spoken words by himself. never clean. always musically special. felipe gordon might be new to the international dance scene. but for sure you gonna hear that name more frequently over the next years.

the raw jacking sexiness of ghetto house has always played a big role in the killekill universe. so its high time to put out our first release which goes that direction. italian andrew soul is an artist we have been watching for a while already. when he sent the demo with the extremely raw and dirty tunes that you find on the a-side of this 12inch. the decision was easy: killer stuff which makes you bounce immediately we want to put this out! the b-side comes from dirtbox. who is also one half of snuff crew and therefore has been part of the killekill family for a while already. actually almost from the start. being the musical wizard he is. he can not only make house and acid music and anything else you could think of. but also class a ghetto house. maybe even more classic than andrew souls side but ranging from the percussive style of smmfd and work that to the raw energy of fukk it is definitely in no way less original. shake dat ass!

two miscreants of uk electronics have been drafted in by shipwrec for a 12- of techno debauchery. richard bevan and joshu doherty. aka posthuman. have been addicted to acid from their first contact with the caustic and cruel chords of the tb303. since then the two cousins have gone on to curate 10 years of i love acid as well as doling out some toxic classics of their own. the duo deliver the soured goods once again. starting the audio anarchy with the ominously titled -netflix and kill-. drum patterns are gnarled and nasty in this slow burning jacker where basslines boil over into a thick syrup of late night revelry. the flip is taken over by the bullying sounds of -the damocles syndicate.- the track rumbles with venomous menace. coils of 303 spite bulge and contract under the strict resolve of a stern beat in this ready made floor filler. two helpings from two malevolent masters of the silver box.
hypnotizing nostalgia that dictates the dance floor. with previous releases on rythm section. echovolt and les yeux orange. earth trax & newborn jr. are unapologetically consistent in building a legacy. the maze ep is the fourth collective delivery of the duo. sent off into the world by dopeness galore. while hypnotizing synths dictate the dance floor. it is hard to resist the balearic arrangements of new wave nostalgia. the record elevates through soothingly repetitive ambient dreamscapes. while minimalist entrancement pulls us right back into underground territory. the ep represents a side a. meant for club settings and a more ambient side b. once the vocals on a2 set the tone. we bear witness to what seems to be the true ethos of the maze ep: where theres a will. theres a way
vyvyan wants to keep his real identity secret. which is something i can’t help but respect (i did the same for a couple of years). without the context of personality. the music really does do the talking. and in this instance it has a lot to say.
audio soul project returns with 4 cuts that draw influence from chicago. the record leads with a shuffling chords followed by a twisted & sample heavy disco dub. the b side first brings a thumping banger followed by an acid builder that squelches. each jacket is screen printed & hand numbered (limited to just 200 copies). includes digital download codes.
