THE NEW YORK PUSH
hier kommt ein wahres kriegsschiff für deine lautsprecher! aber besten extra laut genießen.
pushing at the edges which define techno, afro and deep house these three tracks bring fresh heat to the dancefloor, creating an ethereal mood whilst delivering maximum power and energy. if paired down, minimal electronic percussive sounds are your thing, lead track ligai will tick all the boxes. stina follows with driving, syncopated beats and a killer pan-pipe riff to hook you in. closing the record sand brings a deeper, atmospheric track loaded with floating m1 textures, warm bass and spirited percussion fills. all in all a highly effective and inventive slice of wax with a voguish twist to groove to.

BUMI UTHIRI EP
uwalmassa is a sonic exploration project initiated by divisi62 – a sound and visual arts label based in jakarta, indonesia that examines the indonesian identity issue within a global context. the thought process behind their debut album bumi uthiri is to provide an alternative study on javanese gamelan composition and to experiment with its known and unknown structures. it is a deconstructed interpretation of a musical tradition that aims to stretch boundaries, but nevertheless, adhere to its core essence.

YOU GOT IT EP
sagmen third release featured greg pidcock and andre salmon who combine to deliver ‘you got it’ ep with four dark house cuts plus two digital only mixes. uk producer greg pidcock’s nomadic tendencies have fostered a strong connection with his music which has seen releases on esteemed labels like hot creations, get physical, culprit, saved, not to mention founding his montreal-based imprint flora. meanwhile, andre salmon’s extensive knowledge of music production has earnt him releases on the likes of repopulate mars, leftroom, hottrax, suara, before founding sagmen alongside aert prog. ‘you got it’ delivers a heavyweight kick and sharp percussive rhythms that lay the foundation for haunting arpeggios and an intoxicating vocal hook before ‘loco’ provides grooved drum patterns, a powerful bass melody and an array of intriguing synthesiser transitions, with epic vocals effects . “tfss’ offers up warped vocal samples and mesmerising motifs on top of a pulsating low-end whilst “esto es montanita’ hits hard with crunching drum sounds, enticing filter sweeps and hypnotic samples. two digital only ‘black mixes’ conclude the package, with the first reinterpretation of ‘loco’ setting an ominous tone until the alternative version of ‘tfss’ follows with a rumbling bass, crisp percussion and dubbed out vocal licks.
having previously caused a sensation with his releases on labels such as enchufada and naafi, siete catorce delivers four supreme cuts for his hypermedium debut, packed with his futuristic rhythmic craft and his highly hybridised sonic language. agnosia finds the mexicali-based producer joining the dots between cumbia’s seductive syncopations, the entrancing club-driven beats of tribal guarachero and ruidosó,,,,n’s spooky experimentation. merging mexican traditional rhythms and contemporary dance motifs, the ep’s playfulness is further highlighted by imposing basslines, airy synths and eclectic glitches - its occasional sparse atmosphere quickly escalating to reveal some intricate, compulsive drum work. exquisitely intense, agnosia is undoubtedly siete catorce’s tour de force, revealing in every detail the finest textures of an ever-expanding affective continuum.
ltd 2018 repress !!! melbourne party enthusiasts animals dancing launch their self titled label with the sophomore release from krautback duo coober pedy university band (tornado wallace & william paxton aka tom moore of otologic). kookaburra, once described as *a bit too mental for me*, continues in the vein of their moon plain release, but this time takes it a step further. perhaps too far.
yeelen is a brand new project forged in the heart of a forgotten past. joe drive, of lux rec fame, and maurizio martinucci aka tez aka pragma have joined forces to sculpt, in their own words, -sonic constructions that transcend the canons of electronic music.- a bold statement, but then again this is a pretty bold ep. -techno tribalism and ritualistic soundscapes- are the bedrock from which this partnership cultivate their sound. figures and forms of a bygone time are conjured through intoxicating drum patterns, lost lands of dense jungle and windswept hills summoned through loops and samples to ensnare and entrance. polytheism explored through the prism of a polyphonic synth, mysticism born from machine drums, -ethnosonology of the future.-
Deep Sound Channel
after a year’s hiatus optimo music disco plates returns with the first of several planned releases.
first up is long time friend phil kieran with an ep made specifically with optimo in mind. it has been tried and tested over recent months and more than ticks all our boxes. we feel confident it will tick yours too.
phil says “the ep was recorded in my house and made up of mostly live percussion performed live by thomas tettey annang. originally from ghana, he moved to belfast some years ago. it just so happens his wife is a close friend of my sisters and that was the first introduction. thomas now runs -releasing rhythms” here in belfast teaching drum classes.
we used a wide selection of traditional african drums that all have their own name, each one has a style and a sound. the rhythms used in this record would stem back to south american rhythms but using african drums. this was a sound and rhythm that influenced early post punk records in new york and still has an influence on dance music today.”
jaki liebezeit, der masterdrummer, hatte seine freude an der tatsache, dass der trommelbau seit menschengedenken sich nicht wesentlich verändert hat. ob ein fell jetzt mit schnüren oder mit schrauben auf dem kessel gespannt wird, ob es ein natur- oder plastikfell ist - das prinzip bleibt dasselbe: beide umschließen einen hohlraum, ohne den es keinen klang gäbe (man stelle sich eine trommel vor, die innen drin mit lehm gefüllt wäre.) so ähnlich ist auch die rhythmus-auffassung. das Überflüssige fällt weg. dir leere mitte erscheint. das unsichtbare ist das entscheidende. alle stücke auf der zweiten ep von drums off chaos kreisen um diese leere mitte. im zentrum ist - nichts. hier geht es um abstrakte, groovende trommel-musik. die rhythmen sind so weit auf ihren elementaren kern reduziert, dass sie zwar eindeutig singulär, aber auch allgemeingütig verstanden werden können. es kommt etwas zum vorschein, das allgemeinen gesetzen wie gravitation, ergonomik und akustik folgt. „spiel, was die trommel will,“ war einer von jakis sätzen. das hat drums off chaos sich mit ihm zusammen zu herzen genommen. im zentrum stehen rhythmen, die auf einfachen zahlenverhälnissen gründen, um ihren reichtum aus sich selbst heraus zu entfalten.
centrifuge ep is the debut vinyl release on new hardgroove techno german label called kickmasomaass. this label was especially created to bring high quality hardgroove and tribal techno music for the real djs and a new life to vinyl. centrifuge ep is the first part of two vinyls where you can find a original version from slovakian hardgroove techno dj and producer andy bsk and three remixes from g8, goncalo m and wyrus. untill the original version is characterized by a groovy bassline with smooth percusions and synths, the g8 remix goes a little higher and bring the entire track to another level with great progressive sounds of trance and techno with a little acid synths too. don t need to write too much about the remix from hardgroove icon goncalo m because all hardgroove fans know how great his music work is. only a couple of words: killer beat, killer bass, killer percussions, this track kills all clubs and partys. next remix is from hardgroove producer wyrus. his remix is based on a killer beat with heavy percussions and at the lenght with over seven minutes is this track great for mixing. centrifuge ep is for all people they love hardgroove techno and we from kickmasomeass label will bring you only the best from the best. hope you all will appreciate our work and will support our label in the future too. may the hardgroove techno be with you.
ANOTHER JAM EP
nandu returns for his 2nd release on connected with another unique pair of tracks, the first an african influenced song with the mesmerising vocals of oluhle, the second a 909 style acid dark dancefloor workout. 1. nandu & oluhle - umfazi omuhle (original mix)- a gentle almost cautious arrangement building slowly and ethereally with a beautiful selection of sounds and an african influenced nandu rythm with shakers and claves providing an original feel and leaving space for oluhle’s moving vocals. 2. nandu – another jam (another acid dub)- a more aggressive, upfront side from nandu. for the intense spot of the night with twisted groove of claps and percussion, heavier in the lows with a proper 909 kickdrum with the acid line coming in half way through..... hot.
four triangles focuses on sharing music from upcoming producers whose talents are limitless, but have never before shared their work with the world.
asok’s label is at it again on this third release, showcasing five tracks from brighton-based charles green, best known as one of the resident djs at one of the city’s most lauded clubs, patterns. by tapping into his understanding of dancefloor dynamics and a lifelong passion for machine music, green has delivered a debut that’s as assured as it is thrilling.

new leipzig label kontra s inaugural record presents a richly diverse collection of music that spans from world music infused house in the vein of many sex tags releases to break ridden, hard hitting, low-fi techno through to considered ambient music. despite the variation kontra is held together by a unifying underground style that every track shares. an excellent first release from a label that s sure to become a major underground player.
das bandprojekt drums off chaos war eines der zentralen und kontinuierlichen projekte des erst kürzlich verstorbenen schlagzeugers jaki liebezeit (der zuerst meist mit der kölner band can assoziiert wird). anfang der 1980er jahre hatte er eine zunächst lose zusammenkunft von trommlern initiiert, die sich anhand einfacher, sehr verbindlicher vereinbarungen ein rhythmisches konzept schufen, das die möglichkeit zu weit ausgreifenden improvisationen gab. mit den jahren verkleinerte die gruppe die anzahl ihrer mitglieder und verfeinerte ihr zusammenspiel, welches durch repetetive modelle und deren variation gekennzeichnet ist. -monoton musst du spielen-, hatte einmal ein zuhörer schon in den 1960er jahren zu liebezeit gesagt. das nahm er sich zu herzen und konnte diesen vorsatz in kaum einer formation so regelmäßig und inspiriert zu leben erwecken wie mit drums off chaos. in über dreißig jahren entwicklung dieser außergewöhnlichen band, die sich eigentlich nie als eine solche verstanden hat, sind zwar zahlreiche aufnahmen, aber kaum je veröffentlichungen entstanden. in den letzten monaten seines lebens hat jaki liebezeit jedoch mit seinen kollegen reiner linke, maf retter und manos tsangaris einige stücke ausgesucht, die bald auf vinyl und auf cd - in je unterschiedlichen sammlungen - erscheinen sollten. nun, nach dem ableben liebezeits, soll es erst recht auch dazu kommen. - mitglieder: jaki liebezeit, maf retter, reiner linke und manos tsangaris

COSMUS (2X12 LP)
2x12" lp UK
following mitÚ’s release of the most recent siempre ep (2015) and their two previous lps, the hit record balnear (2014) and debut potro (2012), the colombian jungle techno duo are dropping their new album, cosmus. in a break with the group’s tendency to record albums in relatively short time frames, the album was recorded over a longer period, giving greater importance to the sound recording of ideas at the time of their conception and less importance to post-production.
this time around, mitÚ took the time to let the record mature in the studio and get the ideas to come together, making an album in which the sound is far removed from that of their previous records, almost totally electronic and minimizing the acoustic parts, conceived with the intention of being performed live in its entirety.
THE RISE OF GQOM
a year after danger, their debut ep on blank mind, durban-based crew audioboyz join forces with hypermedium to deliver another instalment in the growing chronicles of gqom, the darker deviant that grew out of south-african house and whose shockwave is still resonating across western dance floors.
deep and delicate infectious rhythms. each record includes one of two risograph prints featuring a lino cut by the artist.

cosmopolis is an electronic music release from artist fonemi. this work is inspired by the novel cosmopolis by don delillo, a book that tells of a modern odyssey along the streets of a great metropolis. the four pieces here, composition of cosmopolis, sounds as the soundtrack of an introspective journey rich in ancestral suggestions and forgotten rituals recalls over time. the undervalued atmospheres that characterise the whole work seem to be held in suspension by a percussive magma that marks the passage of the past that becomes present. cosmopolis is a fluid that carries our lost memories.
cosmopolis: a tribal and primitive dance, a propitiatory rite that has been handed down unchanged over the centuries.
fiori carnivori: what you do not expect, the flower, a symbol of delicacy and sensitivity that turns into an inexorable predator.
verso casa: the return from a long journey, the lights that illuminate the asphalt and the distant flashes of unidentified cities.
tra le rovine: an ancient song, a prayer that exorcises a universal omen.

GENDER (AXEL BOMAN/AUNTI FLO REMIXES)
turbo recordings is proud to present a release a full year in the making. a&rÆd by turbo elder thomas von party, gender embodies the adventurous spirit of his own multi culti label, and marks a return to the kind of mega remix pack we used to make when the world was young and an alternate dub rework was all you needed to get by. germanys skinnerbox sets the template with a high-speed jungle rave banger, which is an accurate enough description but not something we would expect you to ever repeat out loud. the 12-inch also features versions by swedish nice guy axel boman, who missed the submission deadline by 13 minutes but still managed to turn in a 12-minute epic jam, and glasgows auntie flo, who somehow harnessed the siren song of the iphone with a marimba-heavy mix.
airhead aims for the dancefloor with a 110bpm track built around a recording made in panama city early last year. all proceeds from this release will be donated to the children s charity casa esperanza in panama. dj support from ben ufo, gramrcy, neinzer, drakeford, mr assister, james blake, nosaj thing, bone soda etc

LUCID DREAMING EP
quantum collage is the latest pseudonym of olaf gutbrod aka ohm-g. having built a reputation around his long list of chill out tracks produced while resident in ibiza, this release on martin gretschmann (acid pauli, console) and nico stojan’s ouïe sees him dive into some more electronic textures. ‘lucid dreaming’ is a chugging, groovy trip built around a shuffling beat and dubbed out percussion and horns, tapping into gutbrod’s talent for amplifying the vibe. ‘afrika im weltraum’ adds a little more tempo - a swirling, driving drum loop provides the basis for layers of extra percussion and spacey synths and various chants and radio broadcasts. her beauty certainly draws on some the mastery gutbrod showed in his releases on café del mar and hotel costes cds - a chilled out groover with the sunset / sunrise seemingly in mind.
UZOAMAKA PT. 2 (DIXON UPDATE)
this record is the result of an undeniable desire to uncover a once lost and forgotten gem from beyond the dust. to recover the magic underneath, that has never grown nor subsided and doesn’t belong to anything but itself. a love story between two music labels that found each other in this blissful journey, lossless and something happening somewhere are here to presents the next chapter in their findings. uzoamaka is an original track by king britt from 2002, that still remains as fresh and uplifting as it was 15 years ago. nuno dos santos (sohaso) has been in love with the sonic narrative since it was released, but felt the urge to bring the transformative beauty to a wider audience. in an attempt to recover the original, the original master and pre-master turned out to be lost by the waves of time. calyx mastering have remastered the music straight from vinyl, keeping the raw charm of the original but giving it a sonic facelift to fit with modern standards, also making it available in the digital format for the first time since it’s release. the original by king britt is an ode to the ritual of dance music in it’s purest form. with vocals panning across the stereo field that preach ‘sing, dance, be, free to dance’, it resonates with the primordial human playfulness, joy and expression in all of us. teasing with a melodic bassline, almost reaching twelve minutes running time, it’s a modern hymn that never fails to mesmerize and bring people’s spirit together. besides remastering the original, it gave the opportunity to invite other artists to retell the story. this time the mighty dixon gives the original track an update for modern dance floors. pushing the groove to the foreground, adding some extra percussion and drive while letting the choir guide you to a monumental break in which the chord suspends in the air. “free to… free to… free to…” nuno dos santos has used his magic touch for a short beat edit, which focusses the whole affair on the groove even more. a powerful tool to add some impact to tracks or to break up an otherwise repetitious dj set. mathias schober is back under his sb alias, carefully tightening and shortening the original version from 2002 with his edit to create a version that celebrates the quality of the elements. pushing and pulling, enhancing the entrancing effect of the musical soul.
