LA NOUVELLE EPOQUE (AUTARKIC. JAMIE PATO. FRED UND LUNA RMX)
12" Vinyl D08.12.17
the industry of dance music can be as soul-crushing as any other. those thrills and spills of late. loud nights come with a best-before expiry date. after which even the most seasoned selector-producer-scenemaker begins to wrinkle their nose. to have experienced it all over 15+ years and seek to see it unfold again through fresh eyes. what sort of lunatic would willingly put themselves through that? v would. so its a new character. but who was the mysterious v in a past life? make your own conclusions. a little digging will lead you toward the origin story. but sometimes the pleasure comes from the unknowing. opt to enjoy the silence. silence. however. is not the focal point for v. in fact. this new form is a way to discard baggage and revitalise the process of music making.

the uks best kept secret chocky returns to dessous recordings after the success of his first outing. the well received self knowledge ep. here we see the talented dj / producer drop four tracks via the playtime ep - yet more sublime house music for steve bugs imprint. ‘double dip is a chunky. stripped down vibe. reduced the vitals that will slay dancefloors - firing percussion over a shuffling groove and a cut-up vocal reminiscent of pepe bradock. ‘organism is a deep affair - spacy pads provide the counterbalance to the tough drum track. softening the edges but keeping the vibe high. ‘soul alive taps into chockys clear appreciation for the 90s. with a strong vocal. atmospheric strings and a loose yet crispy beat. ‘playtime (dub) brings the whole ep home with yet another stormer - beginning as a driving basement jam but then introducing an unexpected piano riff that flips the script and takes things in a welcome jazzy direction.

fouk might have been curating outplay since 2013. but their butterfunk ep is in fact the duos first proper ep on their own imprint. its not that theyve been resting on their laurels: they ve drip-fed a handful of eps on the likes of heist and house of disco over the past few years. and released solo efforts on kolour ltd and razor n tape that stormed the charts. it s been fascinating to see the dutch pair slowly break the mould. moving from heavy sampling in favour to an emphasis on original instrumentation and production. the butterfunk ep is fine showcase of their prowess in the studio. loaded to the hilt with contemporary dancefloor funk. things kick off with the rolling drums. off-beat percussion and seriously infectious hammond lines of organ freeman. title track butterfunk is aimed squarely at the hips with its smooth keys and perfectly placed vocal. while some acid lines give the track a little edge. flip over for the bumping wong way. a chunky workout with a rubber bassline. the finale of the ep is winter. a fantastic slice of 80s inspired downtempo mushroom jazz.
the life in the black belt academy is a constant fight for freedom. we stand up and stay strong to defend our dreams. we move individually with a common purpose. manuel fischer and prioleau present their experiences from inside the black belt academy. this sounds were created in the mazy space of the academy. join the force.
the first ep with mr al kent did so good we just had to make a follow up... just like on the first ep we stick to the formula with a lush mid-tempo philly jam on the a side. over on the b. banging it out with a big disco stomper. together you get a 12inch that combines the best of both worlds one for the warm up / end of the night sessions and another for the peak hours. a seriously good value 12inch release

label head honchos sleep d are back with another production out of the jackal studios. located in melbourne. australia. red rock (iv mix) kicks off the release. a mid-tempo mover originally performed live at inner varnika 2017. re-imagined in the studio taking you back to the alien-like surrounds of rural victorian landscape bookaar. bunyip beat reinforces the mood. forcing your mind to explore the flow of the odd-ball rhythm. flip it over and you have almost 8 minutes of hypnotic aural madness on sandman. a real late night outdoor atmospheric finish on this diverse release.
for their sophomore v/a. brooklyns super tuff records dig into the batter s box and unveil a roster packed with varsity-tier heat. at the top of the lineup. we have the tsuba-famed slugger luvless. delivering some powerful piano house with his anthemic vary in colour. rounding out the a2 are the fresh-faced. irish lads long island sound with the soul-sampling i chose you because. batting clean-up. tommy vicari jnr puts one far into the outfield with pacific stri-ia heartbreaking tribal house track that s as funky as mateo & matos and as wonky as animal collective. for the final run. parisian duo mara lakour tap into a pure. blissful piece of deep house with akoa (tribal edit).
version galore is a newly found label. deeply rooted into the music culture. we bring you the selected reworks / versions from the top producers in the game. showing lots of respect and care for the original. but elevating it s spirit and taking it somewhere else. it s all about the dialogue of cultures and the idealistic desire to pass the music legacy on! no half-measures. played-out tunes. lazy cuts. or boring “808-kick boosting- biz! on the second release of the label we are delighted to present you something special from the heart of russia - handcrafted re-edits by the moscow-based groove expert lay-far of basic fingers. gamm & bbe fame

12" Vinyl UK23.11.17
some records are timeless and never age - -happiness is just around the bend- by the main ingredient is one of those records. originally released in 1974. -happiness- was a record before it s time - had it been released a year later it would undoubtedly have been one of the first 12- discs - so as a result. most discerning djs at the time chose to play the album cut. the song is actually a cover of uk prog-jazz band brian auger s oblivion express s version from the year before but main ingredient took the song to a whole new level and. 44 years later. it has become one of the most revered dance tunes of all-time. main ingredient were unlucky with 12- releases. which is why we re delighted to give -evening of love- it s first-ever 12- release! once again this was a 1981 album track which years later it would become a modern soul anthem and rightfully be regarded as one of their best records. fully remastered on limited edition 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
perpetually locked into a disco groove. pete herbert has already impressed this year with the splendour of his releases on nang alongside martin denev. but on this new 12inch for riot gear he s stepping out on his own. the record actually leads in with the plush. romantic throb of the yam who? remix of -expresso before the original takes over with a more peppy. borderline hi-nrg approach. on the b side bottin gets to take no big thing to task with a version rich in electro funk synthlines. while the original sports some piano house chops and enough sizzling dancefloor energy to ignite a ruckus in a retirement home.
