mihigh steps up for tlr006 and in mihighs true fashion brings his usual dark flavour to trapped ldn. mihigh is known for his head bending. dark. trippy erie minimal style and he has once again delivered with this evil 2 track ep. mirrors is a mix of driving minimal and dark atmospheric sounds which gives you a great after party style of track but could also be blended into a maintime set. mutual contemplation is our personal favourite which can be used as both a tool. a warm up track or an after party track. its crazy trippy leading synth keeps you entertained throughout the whole track and sounds like it was created to mess up anyones mind while at a party. we are super happy to have mihigh in the trapped family as he has been one of our favourites at various festivals we have seen him

having established partisan with a bedrock of essential talent. anthea steps out with her debut ep. “smile” kicks off the ep with infectious techno. a healthy dose of acid. and funk induced drum programming. “everything is aok” plots a deeper. trippier course with intricate layers of synth and drum patterns to create a truly hypnotic mind and body workout. whilst “nrg for daze” presents the softer side of partisan. bringing gentle pads into the mix without losing the all-important acid undercurrent that makes for such powerful dance floor material. her “state of mind” ep is the perfect statement on where anthea is at on her artistic trajectory. as a producer. dj and label head.

mark ambrose doubles up on his appearance on was/is with this strident bout of deep end dwellers. kicking off in style with the charged up strut and punchy mono bass of makossa (mix 1) making a point of stepping into a more peak time sound. makossa (mix 2) takes things in a more bugging direction. but there s still plenty of pressure to be felt in the wriggling low end mess and nagging hi hats. the teakup mix of makossa is a devilish broken beat track. and then wagamama slips in a loopy melodic hook and lets a firm but freaky slice of techno roll out underneath

dj koze might be one of the worlds best producers. but above all hes a dj. and it’s his dj ear that governs. just as in a great set. so with his releases: seeing aliens came out of nowhere. a big buzzing beast of a track. to announce that koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album. knock knock. but now that koze has your attention. it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music. pull things back. take a turn to the left. and get deep into the groove. thus pick up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove. doubly so in the extended 12inch version. in a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record. very close to something you could imagine coming out of paris around the turn of the millennium. but of course. this is koze. nothing is normal or familiar in his world. and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory
reaching its 15th release. amphia sees the return of cezar lazar’s double ep. intuitively called “archetypes”. known for his innovative approach both behind the decks and productions. cezar’s creative alter-ego enacts a variable puzzle with hard-edged sonic pieces laid out over five tracks. each with their own distinct acoustic palette. side a holds “equtime”. this side-long track envelops a stripped-down melody with perforated rhythmical pads. fleshed out with disconnected threads of vocals. side b is dedicated entirely to “badgervox”. displaying a weighty bass section alongside the shuffled percussion work. its intricate melody is integrated smoothly creating a unique soundscape. “thicken court” holds the first half of side c. sharp in its composition. it holds an assorted percussion ensemble and a collection of fizzy waveforms. they complement a thunder-like bass protagonist that holds the center stage. we continue with “boe dark”. where textures and sharp tones grow in layers upon layers creating tension. the apex is reached when modular timbres are hindered by sparse piano patterns. completing this electro-acoustic scenery. on the flipside. “wedmar” holds the key to our puzzle with its accurate four-to-the-floor feat. with a series of programmed overlapping organ vibes. the sound feels both piercing and intense. creating a sort of sensory impairment. “archetypes” displays cezar lazar s gentle subtleties and fluency in different dialects of idm.
