under cover for many years. this affie yusuf two tracker finally sees the light of day on the acclaimed mindyourhead imprint. comes on a generally deep green. mixed colour marbled 12’’ vinyl. affie yusuf paved the way uk acid house scene and so much more. releasing techno and acid throughout his career. mindyourhead records recognises that sometimes you need to look a little bit into the past to move ahead and has re-launched the label with this vinyl only release. ‘parrot soup’ is a fine example of just how a track title can have absolutely no relevance to the music whatsoever. this is a lovingly constructed example of how to convey images with sound. this music renders images brimming with joy and loss. icy cold chills and the warmth of the first rays of sun on a spring morning. tight. punchy drums with crisp 808 snares and driving toms lovingly complimented with dream-like pad sequences. soul searching strings and lush bassline form a quality crossover track that will appeal to lovers of many styles of techno and house. ‘something special’ is on a different tip. more driving and direct in style with the ‘everybody…’/ ‘something special’ vocal samples put to great use (need to be heard in context!) and that essential marching ‘affie acid’ bassline. the lead follows a similar pattern to the acid but pulls your head in a slightly different direction leaving the listener suitably twisted!! this proper ‘party acid’ has just the right level of balls to destroy a dancefloor without scaring off the faint of heart. lovely work affie!!
26 minutes of divine techno. midnight cults. the eagerly awaited sequel to last years cyanure dance features two epic new tracks from i hate models with vocal contributions from zanias and a sleek wave remix from dj varsovie. on the solar side the odyssey begins. it will last forever discharges a barrage of devastating. tensile beats over a swell of ethereal synths recalling the sirens - muses of the underworld. luring sailors to their deaths in a flurry of aggravated arpeggios. on the lunar side walpurgis night opens with a pristine. glacial sonic field. punctuated by the ricochet of beaten metal and drenched in the supernal. disembodied voice of zanias. echoing across vast fissures. pummelling through deep ravines and back out into space. dj varsovie completes the journey with his sensual take on walpurgis night. tempering the original with an insistent pitch black funk and somnambulant new wave vocals.
the rising london based label is quickly defining his own and unique sound laying down the law with another live jam recorded 4 tracks release by his own boss dothedu. following the success of the first release. senseverse records has came back with lost acids ep. a rough lost minded trip with an unusual sense of refinement. the producer lets the trip s curtain rise with lost acids which takes us to a gloomy hidden place on the edge of the house and techno roots with a banging 909 and crescendo 303 which dives smoothly into the background own producer s voice. colombine acids explores the happier stage of the trip and keeps the sound on the thin line in between the 2 genres with his fat kick and the flying and clashing crashes. the b1 throws us right back deep into the dark with a slowed down and mentally twisted remix by the very well known producer florian kupfer. finally early acids rings down the curtain s trip with some fine classic house music sonorities that lead us to a dreamy and dancy closing.
label head steven rutter joins forces with john shima (fs005) on this bright ep with its direction turned towards the light. the heavenly ‘skywards’ leads the way upwards with tenderly treated spacious drum programming and light-as-air atmospherics while darker and deeper cavernous tones create the yin-yang balance of lightness and dark. ‘broken spell’ continues the uplifted vibe of a spell that when broken. blooms open with an intoxicating permeating sweetness like an exotic fragrance that lingers in one’s memory. ‘a new day’ leans slightly more towards a heavier driven track featuring a funky bassline with bright electronic notations as counterpoint while drifting. dreamy pads keep the overall mood airy and light. the off-kilter knob is turned way right on the bouncy final track ’disjointed route’. injecting dashes of wry quirk alongside a lightly moving groove.
in many ways. it s difficult to believe wehbba only dropped his first full-length ep on drumcode this year. released in february. the four-tracker eclipse was a monster statement piece of the brazilians talents and followed on superbly from fake. his contribution to last year s a-sides vol.6 inarguably one of the biggest tracks on the compilation. with the confirmation that wehbba will take part in drumcode s off week party in barcelona. followed by the brand s takeover of resistance in ibiza. its indisputable proof that his crisp. chord-driven take on techno has become a vital component to the expansive palette of sound adam beyer has drawn for the label in 2018 and beyond. catarse marks the rapid-fire follow-up from the prolific producer. opening with the eerie she lost control. wehbba says he took inspiration from the joy division track of almost the same name (‘she s lost control ). but instead of crafting the dense sonic atmosphere with vocals. he employs an analogue kick drum and stealth-like moog bass with dramatic results. process follows. a cut which begun as a cover jam of laurent garnier s crispy bacon and ends up incorporating the cut-up vocals of legendary minimal composer steve reich. who is one of wehbba s chief inspirators. the resulting track is an ice-cool percussive work that s rich in dancefloor functionalism. the title track will be familiar to many who follow drumcode radio. a goose-bump inducing highlight of beyers dcr392 at awakenings in eindhoven. catarse is driven by a memorable melodic riff resplendent in 90s techno euphoria. the ep concludes with the terrific mind awake. a powerful concoction of reverb heavy basslines and glitchy effects. that s been thoroughly road tested by both beyer and wehbba and kicks like a rodeo bull.
jickow releases his lead and debut single -pig tails- on the well known resopal label. the belgium based producer has been at the heart of the minimal techno movement and is also a revered producer and performer who creates amazing sounds. the original is a funky athmospheric track with wriggling synths executed in jickows darker. more stripped back and abstract edges of the dancefloor. add into the package are two outstanding remixes by matt sassari and timid boy. all in all an essential release for 2018.
the two stars. both superb singers who moved on to become award-winning actors. first worked together on a telethon in 1952. while dino was still half of the martin and lewis comedy duo. their friendship developed in the late 50s despite their widely differing personalities - dino developing an ever-increasingly laid-back approach. while sinatra proved to be sharp and frequently tempestuous. the two also bonded over their italian heritage. enjoy this lp including “ghost riders in the sky”. “south of the border” and many more!
