• 2xgatefold lp from les graciés
• silkscreened artwork by al white & house of traps
les graciés is a collaboration in the truest sense between paris-based sound artist gaël segalen and deepblak co-founder afrikan sciences. segalen’s experiments in electroacoustic sound met the wider world this year via a debut lp for erratum. an arresting work that showcases her ability to merge hypnotic murk ala angus maclise with the hard concréte of parmegiani & reibel. segalen’s ihearu imprint / organisation is a platform for her various doings. including psychogeographical audio works and multi-media collaborations. as well as servicing as a reference point for other contemporary female artists working across various mediums. eric douglas porter aka african sciences has been deconstructing and re-building forms of contemporary black music since the mid-2000’s. through releases on deepblak (the label he co-runs with aybee) and pan. his musical universe is one of warping cadences and celestial melody. referencing the bold work of percussionists like milford graves & art jenkins. the dissonant chords of motor city techno and stripped back essence of early chicago house matched with broken hard bop sentiments: all tied together with an aesthetic that sits somewhere between sun ra’s omniverse. jean giraud mœbius and dogon cosmology. together as le graciés. segalen and porter make a wholly unclassifiable strain of music that. while containing recognisable elements of each individual s work. also creates a third entity in the process. which can be heard to stunning effect on their forthcoming debut lp ‘low doses’ for firecracker recordings.
new years deal - what more can be said about 2016 for red rack em apart from massive? in march. he released the instant classic wonky bassline disco banger which has been one of the biggest selling house tracks of the year. picking up praise and plays across the board from moodymann. the black madonna and mcde right through to disclosure and mark ronson.
tomato pope is a slamming party banger. somewhere between house. techno. african music and broken beat. the drums are driving. the bassline is huge and the vocal samples get mangled throughout the track. it s another guaranteed floor wrecker from red rack em and gives a tantalising taste of the lp weight to follow.

new years deal - the legendary lidell townsell on the legendary trax label - what s not to like? get the hole might sound like a fairly dubious title for an ep. but it works within the realms of chicago house! released in the golden year of 88. this ep contains nothing but vintage midwest acid grooves! you could argue that the xxx rated message behind lead cut get the hole is an early precursor of what would come out of the chi via dance mania and other associated labels and artists in latter years. rumour has it the track had an impact on the super underground b-more club scene too unsurprisingly! if you like your house music rough. ready & raw then this is for you! warehouse sounds. box jams. it s all here! remastered in conjunction with trax records. fully legit. now is the time to revisit a cornerstone of classic chicago house music. often imitated. never bettered!

new years deal - spazio disponibile welcomes yet another new artist to their realm. this time the label welcomes producer grand river for its 11th release. and one that marks something of a new direction where ambient and experimental music will sit next to more dance floor fare. it s a direction already hinted at with marco shuttles full album earlier this year. and is now realised once more by aimee portioli. she is a multi instrumentalist. soundtrack composer and known for her deep and atmospheric sound and debuts on donato dozzy and neel s label with four lush ambient explorations. across the course of the tracks. fizzing. grainy ambiance makes way for dark atmospheres. then brighter synths arrive late on to bring some light to the shadows. elsewhere. undulating rhythms sway down low as muted keys and strings ripple in the distance. it makes for a cavernous world that keeps you in blissful suspense and overall this ep is a trip through a dark underground cavern with a spring day high up above. as well as this brilliantly cerebral ep. the future will also bring more spazio label nights across the world starting in 2018.
wrapping up the summer with a bit of a 90s throwback number by st. david. ​.. * fools jam* . the ep opens with the titual track. a crunchy. crisp deep house burner. and moves on. with night lovers. into speedier. smoother floor-filling fodder that’s all wiggling. weaving pads and synth leads. the b is a little gentler and more contemplative. but no less melodious dream it (emphasi mix) is a playful yet gauzy piano-led tune that serenades the listener. and la luna (spiritual dub) is a tranquil ditty that serenely glides off into the distance. a calming. mellow conclusion to a particularly emotive 12inch.

>lost in love< is the first single to be taken from l-vis 1990s forthcoming debut album. neon dreams. continuing a collaborative partnership which began on last years >forever you< single. breakthrough bristol-based vocalist javeon mccarthy once again takes centre stage here. through its melodious analogue synths. infectious vocal hooks and sub-4 minute running length. >lost in love< in many ways serves as the ideal entrée to neon dreams. this is the sound of l-vis 1990 revisiting the routes of his dance music love affair. picking up his own theme from the original—the classic french bassline—l-vis 1990s neon dreams club mix pushes the low-end triumphantly to the fore. club is certainly the operative word here. feel the remixs bangalter-esque bassline drop and your minds eye fixes instinctively upon an undulating dancefloor. the night slugs allstars — l-vis 1990. bok bok. jam city — also take the floor on their version. albeit via the neon-tinged scenic route. much like the label itself. their remix is replete with colour. difficult to define and relentlessly innovative.
ltd new years deal - 50 % deal - in 1999. serotonin records released their final output. which happened to be the very first official release by fischerspooner. before they moved on to great international acclaim. serotonin was their introduction into the dance music world. one might think that the label would have grown only larger and more successful from this particular high point in its history - but life is uncertain and circumstances unforeseeable. label founders john selway and jason szostek became drawn away in different directions and the label ceased. recently however. they began to discuss bringing back the imprint. re-releasing or remixing old material. digging up their own unreleased productions and producing new material bridging the gap between their early styles and what they create individually now. they also began to look around for new artists that complimented the amorphous serotonin sound

ltd 50% deal ...significant success for artists is based on two things: talent and timing. dave.i.d has talent by the spadeful but his timing may also be spot on. when dave.i.d released his debut single in march 09 he was probably too ahead of the game but now as we enter the last third of 2010 it feels right on the money. daves initial release went down very well though. paul lester in the guardians important new band of the day feature totally lost it. calling dave.i.d >totally brilliant< and dubbing him >aphex timbaland<. his single was voted single of the year in dazed & confused and made the end of year round-up in drowned in sound. now with the amazing zola jesus setting up so well around the world and the dark electronica coming more to the fore outside its nerd roots. dave.i.d sounds perfectly in tune with the unhappy. troubled sound of now.
