“a dreaming island” is an elegy to hedonistic isle living . drifting in and out through 6 balearic-tinged varieties all referencing various styles of early to late 90’s house music & new age tropes.
on the a side. you’ve got a prelude of sorts in “a storm” followed by the panpipe delirium of “organ of evening calm” while we signal halftime with the breaks’n’bouncey moves of “a dreaming island”.
b side gets trent-y with the beautiful “mermaid dive”. then gets heart wrenching thru the midi guitar shredding of “awake my friend” and sails away with the conclusion “a sea”.

on ultra satans second 7inch release on hoga nord rekords. the band is developing a new genre and concept: “freedom rock”. which is also the title on one of the tracks. “freedom rock” is a step beyond world music which would be the wrong label when ultra satan sounds too spaced out and out of this world.
on the second track “anti clock”. ultra satan hit strikes against the hysterical swedish mortgage market. how safety destroys creativity and also against the worthless tokens of appreciation you receive from our corrupt and ultra capitalistic society.
ultra satan is like a space being. living alone in an enormously big and empty space station. orbiting our planet. with mathematical precision this genius creates music that effects us earthlings on a transcendental plane and shakes the foundation we lead or lives upon.

jordan transformed his life this past year. it was a time of transition from one state of mind to another and falling in love. this record encapsulates this mental transition as well as a physical transition from his longtime home of new york to his new one in san francisco.
word of advice to funk lovers. there is not a minute to lose. get on board of the big hustle’s spaceship. before we take off. let s do a little history. the band was founded in 2014 by bass player and composer sébastien levanneur and its aim is to bring together 70 s old school funk with the hippest actual sound laced with influences spanning from steely dan and headhunters. to snarky puppy and soulive. with mighty horn players. a rock and funky rhythm section. the big hustle s music has a very large variety of soundscapes. the first destination takes us to the washington. d.c. area with “turn up”. the groove is clearly go-go music flavored with the trademark sound of cowbells and of course it reminds us of zapp by the use of the talk box on lead vocals. performed here by saad el garrab. and don t miss out shaun martin (snarky puppy. erykah badu. kirk franklin amongst others) as a very special guest performing the talk box solo! second stop is “a curse. a blessing”. it’s an instrumental very much in the freddie hubbard vein during his cti years. the last leg of the a side ends with an instrumental interlude titled “flying donut”. double tribute to jay dee and flying lotus. the music is a simple hip hop loop based on samples. the b side takes us back into the past with two brilliant covers. involving rod temperton the late great british songwriter who scored some of michael jackson s biggest hits. now the idea for this b side is to do the opposite approach from the a side. taking 70 s and 80 s original music and make them travel into time to 2018. we first land with a heatwave song named “the star of a story” from their 1976 central heating album. track 2 is a herbie hancock song named “gettin to the good part” from his 1982 lite me up lp. this time traveler ep journey ends with an interlude. called “gimme dat”. the song deals with the need of new music. new sound. again. this blend of deep rooted funk laced with a contemporary edge is to be consumed without moderation. and do not forget that e.p. also stands for extended pleasure.
for its 303rd release. tresor records is glad to present a commissioned work by donato dozzy. rome based production maestro and dj extraordinaire donato dozzy is unanimously considered as an illustrious leading light in all techno artforms. along his long career and extensive discography. dozzy has proven to use his instruments most interesting ways. always re-inventing his music. always presenting new approaches to both the deeper and the more rhythmic forms of electronic music. it was self-evident to tresor records to enroll donato dozzy’s talents for this assignment. a nod to the seminal roland tb-303 bass synthesizer. the result is a relentless collection of radical. propulsive and bleeding-heart acid tracks. donato dozzy wishes to dedicate this work to his lifelong friend filo.
coming back for another round after his first ep for figure last summer. shlomi aber continues to explore different avenues of his multi-faceted sound. tying it all up in a nicely rounded package. setting the pace is driving opening track whistler. the producer showcasing his ability to craft something big but undoubtedly refined. he then lets old school drums cruise along gentle sways of washed out ambience. giving the deep heads something to really get into… back with more techno on the b-side. this time in true figure-style: lean. sharp. and utterly effective penetrate the system is sure to leave its mark and comes complete with an extended. separate intro. making for quite an experience. staying atmospheric to the end. aber chooses to step out in half-time. taking cues from dubstep as hollowed kicks carve out an endless tunnel that leads only ever deeper down the rabbit hole.

time flies. doesn’t it? it sure does when you suddenly wake up to celebrate your 10th vinyl release as a small label. which is the case with us. but as we’re all about quality over quantity. our latest 12” offering comes with a superb collage of fresh music by the one and only radicall. having made his mark as one of the most consistent producers. known for his trademark combination of strong. dynamic drum programming and soft and booming basslines. radicall keeps on delivering top-quality music with each next release. and this 12” single is no exception to the said rule. the playful. happy-go-lucky “touch” is a bit of a nod to the old-school/rave/early jungle/footwork/you-name-it style given its complex drum pattern and an array of acid-style synthetic samples and tinges of vocal here and there. but sticking to modern-day standards nonetheless. the flipside comes with “build me up” remixed by bungle. who surely knows how to make good things just as good as they are. but yet a bit different. and here we have the brazilian powerhouse reshaping radicall’s work to make it a bit lighter and upbeat. but still retaining some elements of rawness mixed perfectly with traces of nostalgia. an excellent job. breathing a new life into the original piece - a darker-shaded straight-to-the-point roller. which you can get as a digital bonus added to the release. so here it is - the tenth vinyl item in our catalogue. featuring names you simply can’t go wrong with. what better way to celebrate the occasion?
repress incoming! a blast from the past... one of the most iconic tracks from the noir music back-catalogue makes a remixed revival. 3 impressive remixes to spice up your dj sets. victor ruiz makes bipolar star a fantastic big room techno stomper with his signature sound and just the right amount of melody from the original to make it recognizable. re:axis almost makes the track unrecognicable with a more minimal techno approach. something i am sure will please the forefront of the underground techno scene. animal picnic & aaryon almost pays tribute to the original with their very cool update keeping a lot of the original feel but cleverly tweaked the elements to sound super fresh again. i believe there’s a little something for everyone in this remix package which was the purpose behind doing it instead of a bunch of remixes sounding the same. i hope you like the new remixes and put “bipolar star” right back into rotation.
