repress .... 26 years after its initial release, in the lab ep by language receives a reissue via few & far between, a new imprint out of bristol. founder of few & far between, sam hall, makes the 1992 deep house record the figurehead of his new label, setting the scene for the forthcoming original releases and further reissues in 2018 and beyond. remastered and pressed from the original dats dug out by language members alex swift and mark lewis, in the lab receives a crisp new lease of life with a fresh pressing. swift and lewis have been working closely with few & far between throughout the entire process, digging out the treasure trove of quarter-century old dats that were knocking around in their respective homes. shocked by the sudden interest of music they made 26 years ago, they have both enthusiastically jumped on board for this reissue. in the early 90s swift and lewis crafted in the lab from the deep house sounds coming out of nyc that they were picking up in bristol’s record stores. for kids coming up in 90s south west, the sounds of new york in 1992 formed unverifiable ideas about what club spaces would have looked and sounded like. in the lab is the culmination of these fantasies, embellished with some distinctive “uk” broken beat tropes that were also flowing through bristol’s music scene at the time (and still are). few & far between has made in the lab the blueprint for its first year of releases. as language sought to recreate the influential sounds from a far off place, so too do the signees of few & far between, making references to genres nearly three decades old, in an attempt to bring them into the contemporary. for its time, in the lab is up there with the best produced deep house records of its year and, like the best of them, made on machines by kids attempting to imitate but instead coming up with something that unique and singular.

ltd repress , chaos in the cbd s ben & louis helliker-hales team up with long-time friend and collaborator jon sable to present their new imprint ‘in dust we trust.’ in dust we trust is an ode to a collection of friends who share a certain understanding, who live by a love and respect for the people around them. that friend who saves that last puff for you, that friend who will share their drink with you when you can t afford your own, that friend who will learn how to drive a car on the spot because you re too drunk to make it home. kicking things off with a release from chaos in the cbd, ‘accidental meetings’ is a record that celebrates this way of living. the four cuts effortlessly move you through a journey of delicate textures and atmospheres. it begins with the late night basement sounds of the title track, then sends you through the spacious and meditative ‘north pole cafe.’ the wild rhythms of ‘united identities’ hypnotise you, until you find yourself spat out by the energetic grooves of ‘distorted fields.’ play it in the club, play it in the hotbox, or play it for your mum, this record is filled with soulful, rhythmically complex, melancholic music that is unmistakably dusty.

while perfectly fitting the deep house cabinet, this ep taps on various styles within this genre. jayson wynters, well known for his releases on mr gs phoenix g label and dont be afraid, sets the pace with sherellas kiss a powerful groove and beautiful chord pads embedded in an upbuilding percussive atmosphere. this is a very personal track from jayson and this dedication to sherella is testimony to the immortality that can be found in the power of a soulmate. italian artist duccio, who previously released on the label greta cottage workshop delivers a melodic track with mediative vocals while ukraines kiddmisha gets his well deserved second appearance on batti batti with an immersive electro cut. hailing from chicago, the artist weakmassive makes his debut to the label with a smooth acidic track which could be a perfect opening or an encore to a long night out!
prolific uk deep house hero andy compton is back on his fabled peng stable with a new project entitled blue dream, and an album called california dreaming which unsurprisingly deals in gorgeous sun soaked tones aimed squarely at the loungey end of his plush, melodic repertoire. from the slinking funk of -betsy- to the low-slung beats and smooth-as-silk bass of -disco baby,- compton shows himself to be completely at home rolling at this kind of tempo, no doubt projecting himself to the malibu beach idyll you can see on the cover. music so radiant, you d best slap on some sunblock.

repress !! understood to be the work of earl jeffers, this fresh slice of white label edit goodness comes with four chopped up jams honed for ultimate dancefloor impact. first up is -thank you-, which takes a tough house backdrop and throws some fiery soul down on top of it in a manner you could imagine moodymann dropping with satisfaction. -badadu- meanwhile heads into a more delirious headspace, the sampling meeting with fierce showers of synth fx and a generally raucous arrangement. there are no prizes for guessing what -d-d-d- samples, but it does so with all the fireworks you would want from a house re-rub of such a classic. -the paper- makes for a fine finishing move with its choppy vocal slices and swooning strings.
