for house heads of a certain persuasion. dj duke is a name that resonates for all the right reasons. the u.s. veteran has been responsible for some of the 90’s most seminal moments. chiefly through tracks such as 12 minutes to do it (under his pleasure dome alias). party time and the prosumer-endorsed deep house classic. heard. he returns here courtesy of emerging imprint solo werks. who host his latest ep. green pastures. a momentous house-led workout. it compounds duke’s reputation as a producer of considerable panache while also acting as an auspicious start to life for the dublin based label. the title track is a grainy. old-school cut that bears all the hallmarks of a dusty analogue-jam and harks back to the days of vintage chicago with the sort of zest you’d expect from a man of duke’s credentials. the other original. skyscapes. is packed to the brim with industrial motifs and is characterised by the sort of effortlessly catchy baseline with which duke has made his name. mysterious and ethereal. it takes the listener on an uncompromising and throughly captivating house journey from the off. on the flip side. we have two stunning remixes. the first of which arrives from new jersey don. ruben candelario aka nicuri. a long-time favourite of nyc-based producers a la joey anderson. nicuri turns green pastures into a dreamy. acid-led space. adding layers of suspense and a glittering vocal intto the mix as he goes. last but not least are dublin-based producers slowburn. who serve up a stunning version of skyscapes. a carefully construed voyage into the deep. it caps off a fine ep with some aplomb.

deep and tripping stuff from argentine producer. ana helder.. the label say: ana helder. the argentinian girl with the special twist. is back with a hand full of tracks. they are mean. dirty. harmful. amorevolous. seductive and addictive. surrender tunes from a producer and dj that does not think in boxes. for müstique she looked into her always-growing production crate and found some post-punk waving funk odes. which want more than just to dance this mess around. they bring soulful lsd-melodies for jazz lovers with techno legs that like to get high on liquid liquid. they are electronic but yet so organic. and they move deeply while spreading the feel of a meditative rest. when diagnose heard them first. he came to the idea of writing a script for a flick that tells the story of a music-making machine. which has more to offer than answers. it forms sound with no traces of reality. but is so human that humans fear it. why did he think that way? only because of what ana helder recently got to say? well. let the music play

man power returned to his northern home for one last waltz. this is their joint offering for the esp institute. on side a. man power welcomes us with tistish. stepping slightly out of his comfort zone and employing a boxy breakbeat to create a dose movement. this contrasts his signature fatty bassline and together they establish a ground on which to stack layers of atonal square and sawtooth waves. about halfway through he introduces a massively seductive string lead and for the remainder of the ride this palette of sounds coalesce in dark orchestral beauty. on side b. man power’s cohorts last waltz deliver nee shitteru. a true stomper of a track complete with in-your-face toms and off-time percussion patterns. an intense driving acid line. and aggressive shamanic chanting. throw in some crash cymbals. sci-fi sound effects and a smattering of gamelan and it amounts to an overwhelmingly chaotic and psychedelic trip. these two songs will have you speaking in tongues.

some might say jordan fields is one of the most criminally underappreciated figures to rise out of chicago in the late 90s. not for people who know what s what though. after a career spanning more than 20 years he has established himself as one of the key figures of the underground. coming out of where everything started. chicago. jordan released records on a handful of key labels like catalyst. track mode. som underground. mood groove. maffia. he did not stop there and today he is still releasing bangers having never lost that magic touch that has kept him firmly grounded on the purest form of the underground. and that. after more than 20 years is pretty much unheard of. when we first contacted jordan we wanted to go back to where it all started. we wanted to be transported to late 90s chicago. to a time where it was all about the dance floor. when tracks meant something more than songs. when purely club-oriented music was the purest form of the underground. to be honest we were not expecting to get exactly what we wanted straight away. he immediately sent us a collection of tools straight out of dat tapes he had. going all the way back to the 90s and early 2000s. so yeah to say that we are excited with this release would be a huge understatement. this is a collection of tools meant for the dancefloor. not reminiscent of some gone by era. these are the real deal. made by a true master. 20 years ago. for the future.
dark entries and emotional rescue team up to further explore psychic tv’s acid house years. psychic tv was formed by genesis p-orridge and peter christopherson of throbbing gristle with alex fergusson of alternative tv in 1981. after various line up changes. the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the house and techno scenes of detroit and chicago. by 1988 the group included dave ball of soft cell. fred giannelli of turning shrines and matthew best of carcrash international. during the summer of 1988 the group recorded a batch of songs at time square studios in london that would appear under the guise of various artists compilations jack the tab’ and ‘tekno acid beat’. the idea behind these ‘compilations of imaginary artists was creating a sense that a healthy acid house scene existed in the uk. virginia was the studio project of dave “mista luv” ball and then-wife virginia “gini” ball. a classical violinist who toured and recorded with siouxsie and the banshees and marc almond.

do yourself a favour and dance across the floor when listening to the new jacob korn-record. aptly titled son of gx. the music is heavily based on the good old yamaha electone organ. the home organ for the world s gentlemen was modified by jacob himself and is now an integral part of his studio. as you ll hear it on the ep. it injects a decent dose of fun into jacob s vision of house music. at least. you will instantly notice that when listening to singlefinger chord. a track that conquers the floor with its disco elements. rumours say that jacob s cat toddled on his poor man s yamaha cs80 when producing cats on organs. if that s true. the cat provided an irresistible hook to an already slamming. italo-inspired track. son of gx is every bit as compelling as the first two tracks with its synth trumpet glory while the slighty darker fun blocks sustains us with heavy percussion works straight out of the yamaha electone organ. on top. you ll get a remix for singlefinger chord by new york s jacques renault (let s play house) as digital bonus.
sometimes a year becomes 20. and this is the case with jesper bellfrog rydbergs second coming on borft records since his debut in 1997. as dj jespha galore. he is a super solid dj arranger and inspiration on the swedish electronic scene since mid 90s. and hailing from borft records friendtown helsingborg this record differs a bit from the traditional karlskrona sound and goes into softer territory with classic acidhouse sounds and friendly melodic funky electronic disco. at times almost bordering to italian pouch pouch vibes with shiny cars and prosecco. buy doubles and you got a cool little set bordering between acidhouse and electronic disco. / joakim cosmo
