pets boot down the doors of 2018 with this generous five track version excursion. five of the label bosss most distinctive and decorated tracks from recent years get the treatment from five fittingly big names. this is how its going to go down… the one and only roman flügel takes the lead with a wonked-out trip down ‘basic colour theory lane. with a sly switch on the kicks and full emphasis on the alien encounter feels. his trippy take on ‘dont sets the perfect creative benchmark for whats to follow. dig deeper for a bumping. stripped back warm and jacking twist of ‘its happening by the currently unavoidable rutilance founder dj steaw while counter records pional breaks down their recent jolt of euphoria ‘rave history and rebuilds it into a slinkier. house affair. repurposing every spine-tingle and skin-ripple greg and voitek coded into the original. deeper again were treated to an exceptional twist of their green velvet collaboration ‘keep on as lawler injects a springy. molten momentum to the elements with a salubriously loopy machine funk feel. finally. for good measure. jonathan kasper wraps up their 2016 spiritual trip ‘elixir with a new sense of conga-riddled. bass-licked momentum. still reaching the highs when you least expect it to. the pay-off keeps giving and giving. a little like this whole ep
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

vinyl only ... memento is proud to announce a brand new maxi-single of the extraordinary lithuanian producer mario basanov. better known as ten walls. with this moniker. marijus adomaitis has been releasing a bunch of deep house gems. and has remixed artists such as robert owens and hercules & love affair -swan- begins with a smoky dramatic introduction. that in a rapid glance become a obscure minimalistic dancefloor killer with a grueling bass line and unremitting hi-hats. finally taking off with a gust of monochromatic sequences and a whirl of dampings. in -lake-. after a dense windy evocative prelude. metallic percussion leave the footprint to the headway of a stomping kick drum and a mesmerizing bass line. sedately flowing synthetic notes. filtered bleeps and rapid beads lead the track to a grandiose finale in which whiffle and wafts become an ubiquitous polyphonic pad.
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
this is music that comes from playing records. dj fiskars have done it for 15 years. subconsciously gathering an assortment of ideas. vibes and moments on the job. it’s only now as he’s starting his career as a recording artist those ideas start to materialize in an accessible form on wax. it’s fair to suggest that the record has a day side and a night side. “filippa” is a somewhat balearic piece: on the shelf it lands somewhere between your omar s records and a mario kart disc. on the flip. “key largo’s” mellow yet banging house grooves drop especially well at the after hours party. the release also marks the dawn of fiskars’ new vinyl-first imprint leave the man in peace with his kit – be on the lookout for more releases in 2018.
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.

2x12 inch vinyl with download voucher in slipcase with 5mm spine. black innersleeves and sticker.
everything begins with changes. whether you re moving geographically or emotionally. aera’s album „the sound path” tells the story of this sentiment.
born in the high north of germany and now a berlin resident. ralf schmidt aka aera first appeared on the electronic music map when he established his own aleph music label back in 2010. with only a handful of releases. aera was able to lay out his very own musically topography on the cutting edges between house. psychedelia and breakbeats. this colourful mix culminated on his debut album „offseason traveller” in 2013. resonating the past forty years of electronic music. which brought him the attention of a wider audience as well as fellow djs and producers. so it was a logical consequence that his talent also attracted other labels and lead to widely praised releases on innervisions. maeve or john talabot’s hivern discs. with these. aera’s sound bloomed further into bubbly acid and trancey territorries and his fine reputation as a singular producer. travelling dj and remixer flourished. with „the sound path” aera continues his musical travels and permanent vacation is gladly hitchhiking on that ride. his second album is the most coherent and definitely most personal work to date. here. he has perfected his sound even further - adding nuances from the meadows of new age. kraut cliffs and high-flying kites of ambient. complete with the cinematic and nature-esque qualities of ralf’s music. it will draw you in deeply through a great variety of landscapes before your inner eye. however. you’ll never lose track. because this path is beautifully illuminated.
vyvyan wants to keep his real identity secret. which is something i can’t help but respect (i did the same for a couple of years). without the context of personality. the music really does do the talking. and in this instance it has a lot to say.
rico casazza is an electronic producer. dj & teacher. based in london. having produced music for over 11 years. he has established a solid musical identity with releases on labels such as soma. archipel. plastic city & wiggle. following his killer “they move fast” ep on beef last summer. we now welcome him back for his first 12” with us. the productions are unique but you can tell they are from the same magical casazza signature ... raw acidity. enslaving basslines and subtle percussion. the ep kicks off at a measured pace with “yurican”. whose self-assured acid line sits wonderfully alongside the track’s reflective atmospheres. “argue” then evolves this acidic energy. still praying to the sky but pumping its fist higher than before ... laying the patchwork for the final original on the 12”. the euphoric dance floor obliterator. “macabre”. to finish. bringing your heart rate down with caution. dirscen has provided a drugged out remix of “end 2016”.
edwards graceful take on modern house and techno is a perfect fit for trelik. and the german producer sounds comfortable as he unfurls swooning threads of otherworldly music for the tripped out dancefloor. the ogermania mx of mikko is a hazy. string soaked affair pitched somewhere warm and dreamlike. but there s plenty of energy churning away in the lower register. lottery is a more twitchy affair for darker times. all moody bass bounce and looming drones around a shuffling set of percussion. groaning ghosts is the techiest of the bunch. and theres a whole lot of freaked out sound design swirling around in the mix as well. this is simply stunning. highly advanced dance music from a modern day maestro.
damian lazarus magical live project the ancient moons returns today with their new single five moons. the band led by lazarus. is comprised of ben chetwood on drums. rob gentry on keyboards. and new vocalist j appiah. on five moons they are also joined by the australian punk sensation chela for a dubbed out. soulful excursion into the darker recesses of the dancefloor. the ancient moons first debuted in 2014 with lovers eyes. and followed that with the acclaimed album message from the other side. dubbed a a journey into technos dreamiest recesses by the fader and a psychedelic masterpiece by vice. since then the ancient moons have travelled the world with their highly immersive live show. supported roisin murphy on tour and played at glastonbury festival and melt! amongst others. last year the band resurfaced. after locking themselves away to record in the italian countryside. with i found you. which nabbed a bbc essential new tune and stunning remixes from black coffee and patrice baumel. today five moons offers another glimpse into this summers forthcoming album.
rotate’s fourth release brings back. once again. a collaborative project between two in-house artists that share a strong vision about music. how it should be created and ultimately. experienced: french artist leiris. and italian talent lapucci.
in a connection that seemed instantaneous. patrice and mattia joined forces in 2017 over two long and very efficient studio sessions that culminated in a collection of musical treats that speak on behalf of their own personal vision of contemporary dance music. “shadows talk” is lapucci & leiris’s debut on rotate. and it comprises four micro-housey cuts heavy on detailed percussion. mind-bending bass and cosmic synths.
the second of alma negras 12 rhythms series is dedicated to the maloya sound from la réunion. a tiny island where a melting pot of cultures is reflected strongly in its music. maloyas roots go back to the time of slavery. its quick tempo and raw energy making it not only a popular dance music but also a powerful protest through movement. on their maloya ep. the basel collective pay tribute to the hypnotic rhythms that were feared both by the catholic church and the french government for the musical forms subversive part in the rebellion against colonialism.
our new muna musik 007 sounds like if all 4 artists were sitting on a table checking together sounds and how they can create a journey together. never before we had soundwise one direction of grooves with deep and surprising synths and spinning voices around the dancefloor like on this new various artist. cinthies hurt me. hector coutos ciroco. christian burkhardts hola & luca donzellis not ordinary are made for dancefloor lovers with a smile in their faces and enough energy to dance the whole night.
