berlin based arttu has been dropping his dusty fat beats across numerous techno labels including philpot. clone and 4lux for a few years but it was 2016’s track ‘hoodies’ on arttu’s own imprint cyblo that caught the attention of accidental label boss matthew herbert (and which remains firmly in herbert’s record bag). arttu was invited onto the accidental jnr roster and has delivered a chunk of techno with so much swing it made donkey kong blush. arttu takes the most simple of jazz bass hooks and loops across a rigid kick. it’s when those hats kick in that the groove goes fucking wild. the presence of us native roberto q ingram on vocals brings a full detroit gangster flavour to the party. initially arttu and roberto had an idea to record a simple and sweaty track with roberto on the mic and arttu at the control of some dusty old machines. the result. ‘bass trakk’ is exactly that: roberto dropping lyrics over a raw beat and a massive bassline. the ep is rounded off with a deep bit of techno ‘debris’ with all the trappings of the darkest hour of a berlin winter in which it was recorded.

elizabeth merrick-jefferson is one of those artists who seem low-key. theres not a lot of information about her. if any. except for the existence of the first two records and a lone interview. one released in 2013 and the other in 2014. listening to either record tells you her music might be a lot of things. but low-key isnt one of them. powerful and colourful. direct. and with 313 references embedded in its dna. she pulls it off with style. elizabeths third record is no exception. it has found its home on our mothership label. burek. three happiness is tailor-made for the dance floor. it wont leave anyone with a pulse standing. playful synths. wonderful strings. and infectious groove make it impossible to ignore. knowledge revolution is layered and paced. painting a somewhat different picture. melancholy and a sense of mystery envelop this track. whose leitmotif vocal appears just frequently enough to provide insight into the title. the last track of this ep is fittingly titled noctilucent clouds. its a drumless track with a rhythmic main synth counterpointed by sounds which give off the impression of clouds shining through the darkness of winter nights. another amazing release from burek.

jungle gym records presents “water tour”. a split 12” from dravier and ciaran lawless. an hour trapped in time. our tour guide takes us from secret cove to open water. dense fog throughout. dark shapes beneath the waves spark paranoid imagination running wild. though our hearts pull back to shore. we left our mind at sea.
new to the stay underground it pays gang. the tenth release on the label comes from one ofthehotest&experimentalfrenchproducer from marseille : donarra ! we get the chance to get 6 cuts on one ep (!) which is almost a mini album introducing you guys to his astonishing sound. it could be described as dreamy. raw. completely analog (his trademark). well some kind of proto-techno new-wave belter. killer. all in all. another wonderful release that feels straight at home in the stay underground it pays catalogue
wake up! 009 catches steevio in a lonesome mood. over three tracks the freerotation co-founder cruises through weightless negative space. sketching out contours against a backdrop of deep shadows and warm. melancholic pads. * machlud* opens like a mission statement. sorrowful and barely-there. before moving to the more nervous lounging of * forgotten futures.* on the b-side * green therapy* picks up the pace. bouncing with a lightly kinetic swing. luis remix wrings some raw pathos from the originals immaculate depths. yet it remains of a piece with the source material. rounding out an ep of heady. ephemeral moments.
ron dj skull maney is a legend. nrg music dropped in 1991 on chicago s saber label and cemented his rep as one to watch over the coming years. one of chicago s new wave of producers with a fierce style and original sound. the original press of nrg music was super lo-fi and that suited maney s sound. his blend of jacking box jams. deep pads. porno samples and nasty ass acid lines all complement each other on what is one of the era s most unique ep s. those who know recognise that skull s music over the years has always been essential listening material and this. his first ep. is a heavyweight signifier of what was to come! across 6 tracks we get a surprising cache of styles. from the sleazed out redlight action of nasty girl to the driving. demented minimalism of the raft it s all here. plain as day. one for the heads. the connoisseurs and the freaks. the real deal! reissued and remastered with the full permission of trax/saber records we have another gem from the annals of chicago house history for 2017. do not sleep!
