fragrant harbour once again dig out a cult gem from the seemingly endless vaults of 90s dance music. picking up on a rare and precious gem from a seminal laurent garnier mix and giving it the remaster and reissue it deserves. the artists responsible. broccoli brothers vs righteous men. hailed from germany and were trying to emulate mike dunn. -catch it (calm manoeuvre)- is a spaced out deep house track with all the gritty impact of a classic jam. while -catch it (jam)- gets decidedly rowdy with its hefty kick. jacked up swing and wonky bassline. on the b side -ruhrschnellweg (last exit stahlhausen mix)- brings a little detroit flavour into the mix with spectacular. uplifting results.
gene hunt is one of the few producers from the original wave of trax records signees that still flies the flag for chicago house with as much gusto as when he started. this is his second trip out on inner shift music. and it finds the us house veteran on impeccable form. -kayla dream- is a light. airy jacker defined by amorphous synth washes that match the mellow mood of the label. -distant voyage- is a truly standout track though. dealing in crooked rhythmic structures and channelling the techno side of hunt s muse. -open up your eyes- maintains the introspective mood. but this time welcomes some soulful vocal turns into the adventurous. machine-powered landscape.
marseille-based producer grant returns to his self-released white label series with an ever more expansive ep of deep. rolling house. with a firm grasp for 80’s chicago and detroit house tased with 90’s deep house tropes. grant004 finds him on deepest ever form. with swirling luscious pads. snippet vocals and thudding percussion sinking us further down into the depths.
georgian producer hamatsuki appeared on gasp last year with the uncertain loops cassette release. but makes his vinyl debut on this damn fine 12- for the recently minted sensu label. -remember- is a rich. undulating swirl of deep house laden with melancholic pads. while -rett- sports a sunnier tone for its own arsenal of soft. rounded synth tones. dj sports comes on board for a remix of -rett- that plays with said synths and creates springy. computer jazz melodic threads out of them. -inexplainable inner sadness- completes the set with another trip into warm. chicago-indebted house tones for the introspective dancer.
released on trax in the golden year of 1989 chicago s virgo aka friends eric lewis and merwyn sanders. along with peers such as larry heard and frankie knuckles. gently pushed house music towards a more musically sophisticated realm that hadn t been explored previously. across 8 tracks virgo took us on a deep exploration of sound that was both masterfully arranged and produced and in direct contrast to a lot of the rudimental and jacking drum tracks that were the flavour of the day. there are few debut albums in the electronic sphere that can claim the title of classic . but this is surely one of them. a defining turning point in dance music. the dawn of what would later be referred to as the deep house movement and sound is all evident with the grooves of this legendary record. often listed as one of the greatest lp s of all time . this self-titled odyssey remains an essential. must have record that never loses it s magic. flawless in every way and still trailblazing today. every home should have one. remastered in conjunction with trax. repressed from the finest audio sources available. often imitated. never replicated! 100% legit.
this box set is limited to 500 units only
following the completely sold out ‘imagine – a – nation’ and ‘le fusion’ reissues. anotherday brings you a very special release from the vault of the enigma that is spencer kincy. aka gemini - we are very proud. and extremely excited to present gemini’s first 4 releases. lovingly re-mastered and packaged together in a very limited box set! originally released on relief records. the chicago techno label headed up by cajmere. these releases were gemini’s introduction into the worlds of house and techno. and contain some of his most vital works. as one of chicago’s most mysterious and revered characters. the story of gemini. aka spencer kincy has become something of a myth in recent years – blazing a trail throughout the 90’s. prolifically releasing over 200 tracks from 1994 to 1999. spencer’s music had shades innovation and soul few of his peers could match. then. suddenly. at the peak of his career. he disappeared.
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!
here is anothers second release. a 3 tracks ep from chicagos iconic house producer rick wade. who has reinvented himself in the recent years. this is quite obvious on this record which oscillates between old school and modernity. especially with the track be the one on b2. a futuristic deep house anthem. rick fans wont be disappointed ! dont sleep on this one. vinyl only !

cassette / tape UK23.04.18
jerome derradji received a call by one of chicago’s most renowned record dealer. it went like this: hey jerome. ive got all these reel to reel tapes of chicago house stuff. you want to take a look? less than 24 hours later. more than 160 reels were purchased and safely hauled back to the still music office and jerome got to work. in fact. these reels - that were lost for more than 20 years - contain some incredible stuff that we’ll be releasing in the years to come but right now it’s time to jack! around 50 of these tapes are dj mixes that were broadcasted on wgci and wbmx in the mid to late eighties mostly with the hot mix 5. so jerome decided to start a series of cassettes titled jack to share the absolute greatness of these mixes (and to raise enough funds to finance the transfer and licensing of the more crazy stuff that’s in the stack of reels) here is our first series with mixes from frankie knuckles. steve “silk” hurley. chicago mystery - devastating daryl and a few unknown mixes that were too essential to skip. these mixes were played on the radio only once and were lost until today. this series is an absolute window back to the heydays of chicago house music. all the mixes were professionally transferred and remastered to the best of our abilities.

crackazat returns to local talk with a second single from his album rainbow fantasia. this time two of the stand out tracks sundial and holding you close get the remix treatment by groove assassin and waajeed ! first up is nick moss aka groove assassin. his take on sundial is a rousing rhythm of soulful house that comes bumping in. he kept the essence of the original track but also added some lovely keys. it sure hits that sweet spot and you re hooked for the full seven and a half minutes. on the flip former slum village and platinum pied piper beat maker and producer-extraordinaire waajeed turns holding you close into something imaginative with its layered percussion. jammed keys and vocal arrangement. its every bit as clever as you d expect from a producer that always approaches music with a fresh perspective. to complete the package is also the original of holding you close.

nick anthony simoncino is synonymous with the revival of italian house music over the past five years or so. and so it feels right for him to be delivering this album to vibraphone. of course. simoncino has more than enough skills (and hardware) to make something truly special. and that s apparent from the opening strains of -mystic adventures- onwards. there s a sense of urgency and mystery woven into tracks like -righteous rule-. where haunting leads wobble over sizzling drum machines. and the overall mood is redolent of 80s soundtracks mixed with the uneasy side of chicago house music. maintaining a punchy finish throughout and constantly reaching for the spooky side of machine soul. simoncino has more than delivered for the legendary italian label.
part of the current crop of artists spearheading the uk acid revival. posthuman s output has evolved over the years. encompassing many genres & styles from their early electronica releases. to their later acid & slow-mo techno. their debut release in 2000 was a series of hand made cds simply called -posthuman- (though better known by the colour of the card inserts grey. black. blue and brown). the duo then went on to host a number of parties in an abandoned underground train station in london between 2001 and 2004. and founded their own label seed records (2) with which they released 3 albums and several other releases of their own and other artists material. they also were the first act on manchester based imprint skam s smak sublabel. doherty left seed records to help relaunch uk techno imprint b12 records in 2006. and started a new label balkan vinyl in 2010. in 2007. doherty founded london-based acid house retrospective clubnight i love acid- where posthuman are monthly resident djs. in 2014 the clubnight launched a vinyl-only label of the same name. he also performs as agt rave cru and as one half of altern 8 live shows since 2015.
next up in the apparel music limited series is loure with a 4 track ep which also includes a remix by saine. the name of this work by the aussie is smooth talk and it contains all the stylistic elements that make the melbournian one of the most talented in the scene at the moment. the ep kicks off with the title track which can be certified as a dancefloor banger with its solid rhythmics and the smooth synths playing along with a hint of acid keeps going with mutual motion which gives a display of what this guy can do in terms of creating spacey deep harmonies. such a groovy way to lower the tones before the remix of the 1st track smooth talk. saine here puts his signature once again with another banging tune crafted on loure sounds. adding his touch with deep percussions. a substantial compact beat with a bass-line that will get you carried away. the closing track is the right decompression after a journey through sounds: rolling snares. vocal samples chasing each other and a happy touch to finish in style.

the first full artist ep of 2018 is one by a new artist for heist. but a familiar name for any modern day house aficionado: adryiano. after taking 2016 off. he came back guns blazing in 2017. releasing 5 solo eps in 1 year on labels like shall not fade and baka gaijin. his me and you and her ep for heist showcases his contemporary view on classic house and acid. and is an experiment into how much distortion a track can actually handle when youve got a killer sample hook. me and you and her is about as classic as a house track can be and moves in similar fashion as his post-2013 hit ‘on my side. its got a sweet and repetitive vocal loop. some semi-grainy but definitely groovy percussion and a deceptively simple piano hook. add some filtering and youve got a lovely warm house song that can go on forever. the a2 move it. move it moves straight into old-school chicago territory. with a raw af acid bassline. chicago bred jamie 3:26. now residing in its dutch counterpart rotterdam. gives the track a nice old school twist. hes going full 707 on the percussion and has casually added an amazing synth hook to give the remix a true vibe of its own. the ep closes off with fashion country girl: adryianos dystopian view of a world where dolly parton gets mangled through an overdrive. then gets distorted. crushed. mangled. deleted. re-added in 8 bit and then crushed some more. the result is an uptempo roller with more than enough grit. and just enough tongue-in-cheek to make everyone smile a little bit more. yours sincerely. maarten & lars.

chicago damn is the latest esteemed producer to shore up at marcel vogel s intimate friends label. following the hypoleon ep with some forthright. sample heavy funk house concoctions that nod to his other work on wolf music and the like. -bunny hoppin- is a rowdy but soulful belter with a peppy tempo and an addictive line in looped up samples. while -flush- takes things slower and dustier without getting too lost in the undergrowth. -the truth- lays its samples out in bold. bright brushstrokes with a pattering. psyched out undercurrent for deeper. sunkissed moments. and then -tipsy- finishes the ep off in a playful tryst of re-pitched piano trills and scuffed beats.
classic original mix (remastered) + 4 (!) long ricardo villalobos remixes all four of these remixes are essential tracks that prove villalobos at the height of his powers. and as such they are sure to become regulars in his dj sets throughout 2018.

elemental house grooves from midwestern upstart appian with a remix by chicagos bell boys. warm. sensual. and gloriously straightforward. stripped & chewed 012 is a modern study in the timelessness of house music. recommended!!
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!
