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

local talk broadens the palette further with new music by melbourne producer prequel. the a side plays host to freedom. a jazzy. undulating. mixed-up house sound that epitomises the spirit of prequel in one track. it s loose and swinging beat infused with hip-shaking bass. heavily percussive piano riffs and crunchy claps only quieten to make way for an unidentified vocal. who politely thanks you for listening and hopes you have a great time while you are here. it sits perfectly in peak-time territory as it does on a late night afterhours tip. on the flip is the ever evolving lefty . a track that starts off playful & dreamy and features some truly lovely keyboard work. after settling into the groove it takes a sudden and sharp left turn and enters a harder acid focused workout. percussive elements weave definitively in and out of the bass line as detroit influenced vocal cries echo throughout the background. this is the type of track you ll be sure to hear blasting out of speaker stacks on all open-minded dance floors around the globe. another accomplished and celebratory affair from prequel. it comes highly recommended.
always a rare treat when a ready-formed and devastatingly good project comes our way three emails and a delivery truck later. we re very happy to be lending a hand getting this one to good homes the world over no info to be had. other than a cleverly plotted out ouija of the label name. some very fetching old school purple master bag sleeves & three incredible cuts of secret origin via the mystifying oracle that is mutable.

sounding like a constipated and forced minimalistic funky music created in a small bedroom environment. warm. dirty and slowed down like from an old tape cassette but full bodied. the release begins with the intimate and dark mood of sam and keeps going on with the mysterious vibes of march. the breakbeat rhythm of the broken gravity track and the smokey atmosphere of the downbeat sketch slap. more mechanical grooves on b side with the percussive mid tempo of attrazioni and more ethereal. intergalactic broken beats with amarcord. going back to obscurity with the soulful slow house jam of gess. while the dubby the new stein track close up the release with a touch of micro spacial spirituality. mechanical soul for you ears.

having made his debut on throne of blood as a contributor to moon rock volume 4. cass. returns to the label with a blissed out 12” that builds upon the low-slung atmospheres of his recent output on emotional response and international feel (in collaboration with jan schulte) to create a heady and modern sound influenced by both balearic and 80’s pop sonics without every losing sight of the dance.
following the success of last years playgroup ‘previously unreleased’ album and its critically-acclaimed run of nine weekly 12” vinyl eps. trevor jackson has compiled a second volume of 20 tracks (11 unheard and 9 previously vinyl only) released as a limited edition double cd and 6 track vinyl sampler on nov 3rd via yes wave records. the music featured is a collection of reworked demos and unreleased recordings. a hedonistic mix of raw disco. dub. funk. dancehall. electro. new wave & post punk that all still sound as relevant today as they did when initially recorded for the debut playgroup album during 1997 - 2001.
the last essential outing of 2017 for the play it say it label is from legendary dj and producer harry romero. globally acclaimed and recognised star harry romero has been a driving force in the scene since the 90s. he’s released on such seminal labels as sex mania. power music and strictly rhythm. but also contemporary imprints like ovum and defected. never far from the dance charts and an inductee into pete tong s hall of fame. harry’s own bambossa records is another fine chapter in his definitive story. here he shows off his current sound across three fresh tracks. opening up the ep is the arresting ‘mother earth.’ a percussive and tribal number with pinging kicks and loose hits all encouraging you to cut shapes. bright synths rise up through the mix to bring some tension and drama and crowds are certain to react with hands in the air. the masterfully mangled ‘lesson on swing’ is a vibrant brew of skewed synths and surging bass. vocal yelps and wonky chords that will freak out any floor. it’s another robust and full fat tune from the studio of harry romero. last of all is ‘scatter’. a high-pressure tune with characteristically big drums and fat bass all overlaid with vocal effects that build the intensity. hooky little synth motifs and metallic percussion all add to the steaminess and ensure this a huge anthem in the making. this is a top trio of tunes that are imbued with all the knowledge and know how of a real house legend
