code 718 aka iconic nyc dj danny tenaglia dropped this e2-e4 riffing classic back in the mists of 1992. manuel göttsching s original track would have been a staple of nyc clubs back then and would have featured in the warm up sets of jocks like tenaglia who favoured the longer. deeper sets as well as on the play-lists of institutional night-spots such as the loft and the garage. the track s influence on a whole era of dj s and producers that followed is immeasurable and across 3 sublime mixes tenaglia distills the magic of the original into something totally nyc and club-friendly without losing any of the göttsching magic. even managing to sprinkle a little grace jones in the mix with her fabulous i floated on a cloud vocal sample liberally applied. equinox takes us on a trip that is emotive. uplifting and warm. this is how house music is meant to sound. respectfully steeped in what preceded it yet moving forward in a fresh direction. another example of how on the money strictly rhythm were in their early days. classic after classic rolled out of the labels offices and us. the record buying legions. were / are better off for it! this one s a tasty 2017 reissue and remaster. featuring all 3 mixes. unedited. as per the original release way back when. do not sleep.

since jim coles took on the mantle of om unit. the english producer has sought to challenge himself and his audience by going beyond the confines of genres and styles he has so far explored. in the process he has found success by striving for more feeling. for a more human and daring electronic music. this journey continues with ‘self’. coles’ third album as om unit and a true follow-up to his 2013 debut ‘threads’.
‘self’ captures coles in a period of growth. change. and experimentation. inspired by personal psychological and emotional healing work. and a vision of the self as an egg — which coles later on discovered is a jungian archetype — the album blends dubwise. bass-heavy music with the space of experimental ambient compositions and the daring imagination of a cold wave science fiction soundtrack.
the first om unit album on coles’ own cosmic bridge label. ‘self’ offers new forms amid familiar touches. stripping away what people might expect. coles deconstructed and reimagined his work so far as a challenge to himself and. in turn. to his fans.

forevernevermore was originally released in 2000 and is the second full length on peacefrog from kenny dixon jnr. gathering together the best strands of moodymann s late- 90s tracks on kdj. forevernevermore re-interprets these rare and sought after gems twisting and blending them into a new mesmerizing and idiosyncratic stew which offers new insight into these now classic retro-disco funk tracks. containing unique and stone cold classics such as don’t you want my love. wednesday night people and the thief that stole my bad days. forevenevermore is perhaps kenny’s most soulful full length and the sheer emotive nature of these tracks and their relatively down-tempo beats make this album more of a reflective listening experience on par with sentimental albums such as marvin gaye s let s get it on and stevie wonder s talking book than traditional house music. limited stock available. so be quick!

following a live debut at berghain and standout shows at de school and institut fuer zukunft. daniel martin-mccormick returns as relaxer with the fourth installment in the projects eponymous ep series. jamie lee takes over the a-side harrowing screams are framed by strobing chords and a deadly groove. simultaneously euphoric. agonizing and cathartic. jamie lee was written as the climax of relaxers live set and is a prime example of the artists uniquely feral techno. drawing equally on punk confrontations and more haunting emotional explorations. jamie lee is a lacerating and visceral descent. on the b-side. unwind oozes from the speakers. a miasmic cut that builds on the white knuckle tension of jamie lee. a lone synth figure worms its way through pulsating 3d drones. shimmering dissonances and hiccuping drums. rocking out into a quasi catatonic infinity. finally regime change gently floats on the surface of a trash-filled sea. a fading. smog choked reverie.
