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.

it is our distinct honor and pleasure to welcome todd osborn to the argot family with his stunning new single. elastic 68. this double a sider came together over the last three years thanks to regular communication between the michigan-based savant and label founder steve mizek. its two tracks exemplify argot’s musical direction and check a major item off the label’s bucket list of releasing a record by todd. with nearly mythical finesse. the title track finds osborn presides over a marriage of sassy. gleaming motifs and invigorating acid lines. its assertive bass line grabs dancers by the scruff before the unleashing a torrent of churning acid riffs that could stir even the most jaded chin-scratcher. “authorized dealer” is tougher and even more acid-forward. stomping and squelching as it drags the dancefloor into the dungeon for beating it won’t soon forget. supported by kornel kovacs. midland. xxxy - releases on running back. ghostly/spectral sound. 7777
