the debut release of uk dj duo “secretsundaze” on mule musiq. james priestley&giles smith delivered two modern deep house versions and one melodic ambient version. it’s all-round for house music lover.
this is cliff music: a berlin based label spreading and supporting the many facets of house music. the mission is to give talented producers and friends a stage to share their vibes with the world.
cliff music kicks off with a four-tracker featuring the aussie slamb, french boys vitess & mangabey, and last but not least leipzig’s finest, luvless. the a-side starts with a melodic summer anthem “minor secret” by mangabey, followed by slamb’s house-driven disco bomb “why stop now”. on the flip side, luvless provides wobbly synthesizers over crunchy drums and grooves. vitess closes the ep with a 90’s and 2step reminiscing dancefloor hit.
after 5 years from their last album released on bosconi records, the clover’s trio comes back on their own label with a three track ep dedicated to the dance floor.
quantized tribalism melts with jupiter’s sounds in “pulsing particles”. while in “emanation”, past and present feelings alternate through chants and synthesizers sitting on a solid funky groove.
“separated at birth” is the theme of the b-side, the minimalism of the original track is stretched by horror inc. (aka akufen, perlon) in a rare 9 minutes melodic drone with broken beat and thriller-ish like strings. a gem you can’t miss!
the clover are back on the market, ready to play with a brand new liveset!
part 5 of 5 to be released over the coming couple of months. originally released on the phono label in 1995/96 the ‘parts’ series from matthew herbert are a much loved collection of house tracks that sound just as original and bold today as they did when they were first released. this series of 12”s were part of an early wave of exploratory dance music that paved the way for the deep house that still works its magic on dance-floors in 2018 some 25 years later. the mix of herbert’s playfulness alongside expertly grooving production and unusual sounds makes this unique collection of work. the odd few tracks aside this is the first time that these releases have ever been repressed. all newly remastered for this reissue series, the releases include stone cold club classics such as ‘deeper’, ‘take me back’, ‘resident’, ‘people that make the music’ and ‘see you on monday’.
