mood to move ep is a six-part musical retrospect into the work of veteran japanese house producer takecha. the little-known artist has been sporadically releasing analogue house on his own gwm imprint since the mid-90s. however trouble maker had only recently discovered his works and were dying to hear more. the music he sent was far too good to remain unheard. so we twisted the little-known maestro’s arm and managed to grab a selection of six unreleased and never before heard cuts for your audio pleasure. created between 1995-2000. these musical gems were left dormant on dat tapes in takechas basement - until now! with classic house being the flavour throughout. the high-quality production and deeply-resonant synth lines of each track leave an imprint that’s hard to forget. if this is your first time hearing takecha you certainly won’t be disappointed.. released on 12 inch vinyl . shrinked wrapped

having played us his ‘street grooves’ in 2015 and been a ‘kid in chicago’ in 2016. hackney based greek producer. cockney lama. makes a welcome return to the robsoul camp with his latest collection of beats.
2011 saw the dawn of cockney lama the producer. after a decade spent cutting his teeth on the greek and uk dj circuits. he set about fusing his dancefloor and newly learnt studio knowledge to create his very own tracks and loops. a brace of releases on monique immediately shot him into the spotlight. picking up support from many of the scenes biggest hitters. releases for king street music and robsoul followed and today he returns to the fold with his latest…
the baby funk you ep is a fresh four track selection of sample-rich. groove-heavy hitters. essential tools for the discerning dj and a fine addition to all record boxes.
chapter 6: in taxon he intertwined saxophone. free voices. funk. jazzy and electronics. kevlar is headed by a strident and wandering guitar on a carpet of percussion. 33vs45 is a piece composed to be played at 33rpm but also lends itself to be proposed in 45rpm in daniele baldelli’s style. accustomed to propose records played at the wrong speed for unforeseen effects.
viva music boss steve lawler serves up a brace of balearic-tinged groovers as he preps for another firecracker season in ibiza and brings his years of experience and production prowess to phil weeks’ robsoul recordings imprint for the very first time. adding a dash of breezy. feel good aesthetics - mixed with shuffling. shining rhythms - opening track feelin has a light and steady pace. retaining a focus on groove and space. with vocal chops dusted across the track while melodic atmospheres underpin and a deep. soulful and powerful soul vocal sample cements the hands in the air vibe. equally sun kissed is take me there. bringing a percussive rhythm. laced with bongo hits and skins. while more vocal chops and layered percussion find themselves dancing in perfect matrimony. another day. and another dancefloor weapon from birmingham s finest.
it really feels like we (aka mad mats & tooli) have been around way longer than 5 1/2 years with local talk. but it s really true what they say. time flies when you re having fun! from what started as a somewhat simple and almost primitive urge to create a small house imprint has now grown into a much bigger affair. we really tried hard to keep the label from getting stuck in any genre (remember 90s house?) and to always keep the local talk relevant. curious. diverse and with a healthy dose of underground mentality. from our very first release with bassfort s excellent moon shadow in the summer of 2011. we had a crystal clear vision of what local talk should represent...house music in any way. shape or form! over the years we released soulful. disco. jack. afro. vocal. deep. jazz. tech. latin. old school. acid. uk. berlin. new jersey. detroit and of course chicago inspired house music. if it made us bump...we put it out! this brings us up to today and about +80 releases later. we thought about how we best could sum up these first 5 1/2 years and immediately the image of blaze s classic album 25 years later popped up. besides the fact that it s an amazing album cover it also a good representation when different musical genres fuse together. it s not strictly a house album but just as well a r&b. reggae and soul album. this fusion and variation of house sounds is something that we ve tried to capture on our 5 1/2 years later compilation. split into two parts. on part 2 you ll find a high energy disco rub from parisian s3a. a truly deep and soulful vocal jam from boddhi satva & sly johnson. a deep uk garage production from smbd (aka simbad). a dark and electronic affair from toto chiavetta (yoruba) and finally a musical acid number with that magical bristol touch from newcomer marcel lune. all in all we think we got most angles covered and hopefully this album will make you spread that chalk on the dance floor and get down...local talk style

its been nearly a year since he featured on robsoul. under his v.i.c.a.r.i. alias. but sheffield house don tommy vicari jnr returns to the label with another beautifully creative ep. opener ‘breff’ is a coming together of polar opposites. whilst harps glide across the prodigious pulse of its acidic bassline. open hats shimmy and snares strike. somehow. all together. it works to perfection. the quaking bass. grinding stab and ‘get dahn’ vocal serve to create a stripped back tool across the opening bars of our a2. however when the beats drop its secret is revealed within its killer groove. as the lights come on tommy rolls out one final jam in glittery disco cut ‘in the night’. a last seductive slice from the northern powerhouse and one that leaves us hotly anticipating his robsoul return.
jt donaldson. dj and producer from texas has an impressive background with releases and collaborations on prestigious labels like balance. earthtones. distance. panhandle…and cyclo. he developed his own style of house music throughout the years using influences from jazz. funk & soul. this reissue ep originally out in 1999 is one of his best. 4 pieces of fuzzy house with spaced out effects. heavy bass rides and unique groove

nice price deal !!! pressure to live is a dark but upbeat summer anthem that harks back to the golden era of us vocal house in the late 80s and early 90s. with an infectious retro sound that is given a modern twist for todays clubs. the vocal message. which expresses the pressures and challenges of modern life and the resulting need to let off steam and party is sure to strike a down to earth but uplifting chord with todays clubbers
chicago has always been a place that had talented musicians. it has been a hub for soul. funk. blues. and jazz for generations. the significance of the real sound of chicago release in disco compilation terms is that many chicago private disco labels never made it out of the city. just like chicago house music...

building a formidable reputation as an artist with a diverse set of approaches in the field of electronic music. ukranian producer cape cod delivers his debut album on kiev house in a fine display of musicianship. from the opening track -among the stars- (which features constantine on vocal) it s clear that this will be more than a straight up collection of dancefloor tracks. there are indeed some upbeat house tracks to be enjoyed. not least on the razor sharp garage bumper -we don t have to-. but there s also equal space given over to more introspective jams such as -put u down-.

after “theory of strings (part1)” ennio colaci and fabio della torre present the second part! the first track of a-side is the one who gives the title to the whole project. - theory of strings-. a dubby groover with a funky and psychedelic feel in the vein of a more coloured and dirtier studio 1 or soundhack. the -feeling good vibe- keeps going relaxed and chill with the smart up and down mood of the track -forty degrees- while on b side minimono get drier. minimalistic and more mysterious with the subtle after-hour jam of rewind. this strong effort by fabio and ennio ends trough the cinematic atmosphere and the romantic piano notes of the gentle but raw closing act -still mine-. mind the strings!
the music has come into my life when i was about 9 years old. thanks to one of my sisters tape with songs by bob marley and the wailers. so i switched from reggae to dub. from dub to jazz. from jazz to radical improvisation in a moment.now i m 33. and after producing pretty much any kind of music. i want to put together what i still like of dub music with that of the south of europe. which is the place where i grew up. melting everything together with vintage equipments and working with modern machines at the same time. playing and producing this music has been therapeutic for my head. making all this known is for me like seeding again the love for music without any distinction. andrea gabriele 1981 - 2015
