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.

vinyl-only ep with tracks taken from debut album. discovery in the atomic garden - previously releasing as community corporation on argot and crisis urbana recordings. like changing the channel. changes in one’s life can suddenly bring about a new perspective. after moving from detroit to seattle. producer taylor hawkins suddenly found himself on flora fm. previously recording as community corporation. this fresh beginning in emerald city brought new sounds into hawkins’ repertoire. where he was once surrounded by cheap boogie and disco records in detroit. seattle’s used bins were full of uk imports. early 90s ambient techno records and the idm that followed. these new influences injected judicious breakbeats and top notch electro sensibilities into his already adventurous midwest techno aesthetic. it’s as if his music has come alive. each song a new sound world abuzz with fluttering synths. nimble percussion. and soaring melodies. recorded as single live takes using an mpc to control his drum machines and synthesizers. the flora fm music flowed quickly from hawkins and needed only gentle edits. the eight tracks on his digital debut album. discovery in the atomic garden. document his experience finding his way in seattle and in life. all through the lens of a fantastic and somehow futuristic musical viewpoint. the vinyl-only ep atomic garden includes four of the album’s most danceable tracks. all wrapped in gorgeous artwork by patrick savile
fresh from his recent tour full of sweaty live sets & deep record digging in the motherland. todh teri is back with the 3rd instalment of his deep in india series of edits & reworks. first up. a chunky acid rework of a huge 90s hit brimmed with relentless drum programming & shimmering peaks of ecstasy. followed up by a suspenseful tribal house reinterpretation of a 60s cabaret classic (with a breathless twist that would definitely leave the purists scratching their heads). the final one is strictly day time dance business drenched in caribbean sun rays & the evergreen vocals of 80s pakistani disco diva.all 3 tracks in this release are the essential bollywood disco curve balls that you need in your record bag to set dance floors ablaze all over the world.
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!

the sixth instalment of slow motion s retro-futuristic international-sister label is the debut release of mysterious russian producer fakundo. this record sits at the heavier end of our musical spectrum and is brimming with hard-hitting electro swagger that conjures up a dystopian video-game underworld. the best bits of alien sex fiend and comes atop a whole bunch of wobbly baselines. not for the faint of heart this record is a total dance-floor destroyer.
influenced by old-school and shaped by new tools pola delivers his next shot on nilla. le petit panka channels some of pola’s playful. sportive memories from a trip to paris. with some softly handled acid flava between the lines. the two tracker features a remix by swedish arkajo.
the next release on moreaboutmusic comes from one of chicago houses best kept secrets. often name checked by legends such as mike dunn. marshall jefferson. glenn underground and tyree cooper to name a few. a dj and producer. hugo grew up during chicagos heyday. at one point living with mike dunn and tyree cooper. where they would spend their days producing and recording tracks on the 808. 303 and 909. along with any other equipment they could get their hands on. the on to another time ep showcases hugos talents. giving you two straight to the jugular acid tracks with in. out & in (part 1) and in. out & in (part 2) with the flip seeing the mood shifting slightly with the deeper vibe of on to another time. the ep finishes up with a cut up disco joint the beat goes creating a solid ep and an excellent introduction to hugo h
acid pauli and nico stojans ouïe label acts as home for left-of-centre music from disparate sources - somehow connected by a thread of hedonism with a melancholic edge. welcoming kerela dust to the imprint. this four tracker showcases the different dance floor shades the label always reaches. kerala dust are a london based trio that owe as much to tom waits as they do to four tet or dj koze. but somehow tread a fascinating line between genres and moods. mixing jazz. indie and the sharper end of the club sound. francescas frames is the perfect introduction to their vibe. ‘maria is augmented with a thick. mid tempo kick and sparse. effective percussion. the clever vocals provide the topping - showcasing the bands pop writing prowess. the track will appear as a single release on 6th aprila accompanied by a music video. acid pauli and nico stojans remix picks up the pace a little. while dubbing out the elements into deep. late night dance exploration. ‘nyla brings a new vibe. deep. pulsing synths and a bubbling baseline accompany the crisp. compressed rhythm track before eds iconic croon arrives to take the track to a new level.
after the uneventful resolution of a labour dispute at assistance hq. the resident pencil-pushers turn their tempo dial to a leisurely 105bpm. at long last serving up lukewarm plates of beam-03 to the more sluggish peak-time massive. in mambala . the now-obligatory bongo jostles with squelchy synths. whilst echoed claps and ominous bells should see even the most hesitant rabbit dragged down the hole. bebny experiments with low ph levels. metallic clutter. and some surprise horn cameos.
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.

gu (glenn underground) pays tribute to armando gallop & earl smith jr better known as armando & spanky on acid saga 1. the legacy of gus 303 can be felt in these latest tracks with bubbling acid lines seeping throughout both spank n gallop & peaceful rage(acid revenge).
taking advantage of his first japan tour. ortella is back with a strong ep rich in styles. believe is mixing memories and fantasies. each track gives a deeper journey with a panel of emotions and feelings. keeping the french man own solid base with dance-floor oriented drums and enhancing them with some cosmic trippy loops. a very special romantic mood and a drop of acid : the perfect formula for evasion. dancing is great. tripping is better!

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.
in early 2017. public release dropped a four-tracker by brooklyns earth boys. a duo comprisedof julian duron and michael sherburn. and now its being followed by a collection of remixes by some formidable names from around the world.

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
betonkust immediately blended in with the 9300 family and it felt like we ve been knowing each other for years and years. after his characteristic remix on innershades latest ep (aal006). it was only a matter of time before he would deliver his own release on our label. with varied percussions. hard kicks and dark synths. the 0% swing ep brings you back to a time when belgian highways were still lavisly flanked by discotheques and afterhours clubs. an era that counts as one of the most beatiful pages in belgian dance history and of which betonkust probably has more knowledge than most of our fellow-countrymen. all four tracks on this proper release produce a thrilling energy that will bring those sleepy ravers. from the 90 s. back to life.

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.
we are proud to present sare s fourth album softmachine. it is a ten track synthesizer epic which takes us through multiple musical flavors of electronica. italo. dancefloor. disco and smooth soul pop. all threads are neatly bound up and unified by the common principles of smooth electronics. solid melody and slick song-writing. the album opens with the intro track and scene setter. dreamachine. it is a dystopian synth algorithm which is one part aural mindscape. one part electronic opus and one part sci-fi soundtrack. a perfect scene setter. everybody freak out bursts open the flood gates with a tide of funky swing. brash disco swagger and catchy lead lines. softmachine shows sare s finely honed song writing prowess with its lazy grooves. 80s sparkling synths and meandering robotized main vocal line. next the dancefloor calls with a peak-time disco vocal groover like you wanna do. it features a vocal from vaarka delivering a fine performance. multi-layered guitars. perky bass guitar and a pulsing groove power this track along. here comes that sound carries on the dancefloor vocal vein with its 4-4 beats. driving bass and sweet strings sitting perfectly alongside a multi vocalled chorused vocal from barbara grabar. kristina strasek and vanja dizdarevic. on the flipside things open with riot. sawtoothy synth waves and darting keyboard lines lead the way in this sci-fi sound track with a core of antagonism at its core. science of the beat follows with its stabby synth bass. rolling stabs and vocodered main lines. music and lies layers in sweet synth pads. melancholy meanderings and just a touch of forlorn sadness into its melodies. to round things off no chance to dance digs deep into the chic vibes with its percussive chop-guitar. on-the-beat bass guitar and swinging hand-clap disco beats. the album closes with the painfully optimistic perpetual rise. a metropolis meets vangelis like analog synthesizer masterclass

after putting out kito jempere s stunning sea monster album earlier in the year. hell yeah now serve up a bunch of remixes from it that have been secret weapons for the last few months. behind them are black spuma. lipelis and bell towers and they all serve up real heaters. first up with possibly their best ever remix are black spuma—a collaboration between phillip lauer (tuff city kids. arto mwambe) and fabrizio mammarella (telespazio)—who flip ampa into a bootylicious house cut with fat bass stabs and sci-fi synths. it s retro in flavour and riddled with melodies that are brightly coloured and emotive. and when the vocal is layered in it helps carry you away on a wave of bliss. for djs who prefer to keep things raw. a dub version without the vocals is also included and bangs that bit harder.

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.
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.
a one of a kind track with a totally unique groove and a bass line not coming from this world. the dx sound that makes the track so powerful sounds like some kind of mutant machine that is going wild and the sublime combination with the robert owens vocals makes this a highlight in the history of house music!
