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.
r.kitt is not a man of half measures. his approach to making tracks is all about an obsession with the philosophy of a dancefloor and how to communicate that in a musical moment. the result is tingle. a fully realised four track ep. showcasing unique slices of soulful house. progressive yet warmly familiar.

2volt and emasa land their first posthouse ep on eademvoce. four tracks that serve all needs. with a strictly selected sound palette declined in four different moods. a1 delivers the hypnotic energy which is necessary to take off in a brief and significant journey into the past future. a2 is a pit-stop. giving the listener a pause to gaze around. leaving a chance to the mind evaporate into the synthetic atmospheres. b1 turns the situation in a determined hunt for something hidden. in a scenario dominated by rubbery tweaks and acid stabs. b2 is the celebration of arrival. the success of discovering something unique traveling in an acid path that cross a forest of morbid synths.
copenhagen s tartelet is returning to their roots with a dancefloor-focused ep. pizza trance. from dirk 81—a.k.a label head emil m. nyholm. having previously dropped a slew of tracks as muff deep and ctepeo 57 (with max graef). the dj and producer is blessing the universe with three cuts of dancefloor heaven under a new moniker lifted from his days tagging concrete walls in the 90s. influences draw everywhere from disco. to african hi-life. dub. underworld. a few old trance records. and timeless house music.
recorded over a year in berlin and copenhagen. the record kicks off with -m.f.c-. a disco-afro-house hybrid oozing with roland jupiter 6 keys and some funky drums processed on old equipment from the former ussr. the b-side spreads things deep and delicious with -pizza trance (main mix).- a euphoric serving of sounds that substitutes pepperonis and pineapples for glittering sequencers and a bangin bass drum.
the ep s closer tastes like a bit of both. mixing up some more acid sounds into the recipe for a retro-sounding house track. it s another tasty delight from the label that will fulfil any and all late-night cravings. especially if you fiend for neapolitan pizza.. leave room for seconds.
adding yet another montreal artist to the lazy days roster. this time. we welcome bowly aka ojpb. a respected name in the montreal dj scene. hes also known for his releases on parage music and more recently on tensnake s great true romance label.

THE BOBBY MOORE RELEASE (FEAT COYOTE. TIAGO & DAWN AGAIN REMIXES)(180 G VINYL)
12" Vinyl UK02.03.18
there is no doubt that bobby moore is an absolute f***ing legend. and a true icon r.i.p. a hero who lifted the world cup for england at wembley. he is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of all time. and was cited by pele as the greatest defender that he had ever played against. a leader of the highest quality and a true inspiration to us all. we would love to say that neil diablo shares these traits and acomplishments but his bewuda ep is tribute enough to one of footballs gretaest ever captians. the ep itself is a remix record . the track is called bewuda. and what a track it is. a 6 min trancy club banger. 808 drums all over the place give it a 90s vibe but with mr diablos signiture italo feel. and what we can we say about his team mates. coyote. tiago & dawn again on the same record.yes please! the coyote boys dont mess around at all. straight into a ravey. sweeping banger.teasing balaerica but keepng it a fully loaded dance floor bomb.tiago does what tiago does. his signiture sunshine vibe oozing out of the track from start to finish. the drums are something to behold and the piano riff drop packs a real punch. and last but not least our mate from melbourne dawn again tears up the track and brings us a classic weird re-triangluation in true banging dawn again fashion. big record from team rothmans for their 15th release!

ess o ess (aka chris stoker and jamie blanco) return to not an animal to further indulge in the organic house territories previously mined for the previous releases. the duo have an uncanny nack for deftly balancing the rockier end of disco with the authenticity of early house. and never more so than on -secret place. the original bounces and struts in a pleasingly groove laden hypnotic fashion. while the dub version turns down the guitars and turns up the synthesisers for a more heads-down dance floor excursion. on remix detail kuniyuki takahashi makes his 1st appearance on the label. on the vinyl you ll find an interpretation which can be best be described as pitched-down balearic-techno. which clicks. clacks and folds upon itself. drowning in waves of reverbed drama-drums at a deceptively low tempo. kuniyuki also provides a second remix as a digital exclusive. mildly pulling back on the pomp of the vinyl version. but replacing it with a spacious pathos. complete with backwards guitars that reminiscent of an electronic within without you era beatles. angaphora make their naar debut with their own wildly stirring remix of the lead track. which evokes the golden era of 80s melodic pop music to bewildering success. laden with digitised emotion. singing ebow guitar. and not a kick drum in site.

having recently appeared on bosconi records and altzmusica. daisuke kondo is a producer on the rise at present. this outing on vibraphone adds fuel to that particular fire with four distinctive cuts that push to the outer edges of house music without losing sight of the groove. -hold on to love- is. on the surface. an upbeat. disco-infused house jam. but there s a certain trippy approach kondo takes in the processing department that edges the music into a different head space. -life- meanwhile gets gritty and bass heavy at one end of the frequency range. and airy and melodic at the other. -feelin blue- gets even dustier and scratchier with its sample treatment. and then -fallen star- lays down some unflinching machine beats with wonky. distant piano licks.
