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 - chicago basement trax flexes its muscles and enlisted the services of one chicago s crown jewels of the underground in the form of one mr. jordan fields. apparently only deep connections in the scene or a history of teenage friendship yields you access to this sort of magic on vinyl! nothing but pure authentic 1980s + a bonus disco dub?! wow! surely at this point chicago basement trax is looking to reenforce their mythology while also stating the obvious. no doubt this is the pure uncut raw from the man with the plan himself so let s see who wants to see the provenance now? want to trip more? rumour has it vincent floyd is coming next. do what needs to be done and get this now.
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.

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

new years deal - a1 - luc marianni - six synthetic suites (anno stamm remix) berlin producer anstam’s remix of six synthetic suites is quite a trip. the producer has crafted a dubbed-out version. almost sub aquatic in its sound design. structured around a murky but driving techno beat on which he layers marianni’s sounds. exotic instruments. unusual timbres. daring melodies and even slapped bass: the contrast between these sounds and stamm’s grayscale groove is powerful. a2 vril - synthetic suite giegling artist vril uses samples from marianni’s six synthetic suites released in 1986 to produce this lovely slab of dub techno. carefully crafted. this track is all about soft edges. with a kind of blurry and hazy vibe that permeates it. a sense of motion is conveyed by the sparse but efficient rhythmic section. with chords and melodic elements giving the impression of floating. with much more contrast and complexity than it might seem at first listen. this is beyond your usual dub techno cut. b1 luc marianni - six synthetic suites (margaret dygas remix) also based in berlin. margaret dygas’ own remix of six synthetic suites is a deconstructed affair. built around a half step groove. ready to be used creatively in dj sets. somewhere between an ambient excursion and a more rhythmic jam. the producer uses a sparse palette of hallucinogenic. dizzying sounds with a dash of eerie darkness that gives this version a melancholic. unsettling nature. words by edouard isar.
new years deal - one of the most unconventional techno tracks which were released during the last years. catchy pop like and unbelivieable dark at the same time. h-friend starts at the peak and then progressively reduces itself into an intro that is actually the outro of this song.

new years deal - all of the tracks were created using a limited amount instruments. with a deliberate crossover of old synthesizers like a farsa organ or sequential circuits s pro-one and 90s technology like the roland jd-800. it is curious that lawrence says all his synths are half-broken. since the sounds he extracts from them are absolutely healing.

new years deal - following his release on perlon as alter mahnn. collective member ion ludwig signs toi.toi s 4th release. the ep brings two tracks carefully chosen and crafted. rather than having the dance floor as a drive they are rather more mind driven. a very mature ep. not for you - this track. from the very beginning. manages to create a tension. a rather pleasant tension. a constancy is built and it does keep giving very slowly. building up to be an amazing jam suiting a dance floor as well as an inner moment of peace. are we for real brings a very slick groover. it brings a very delicate and extremely classy straight hihat leading the way at the forefront while the mind is grabbed by the musicality through a beautiful melody in addition to many hypnotic noises in and out.

new years deal - tresor’s newest release features bnjmn on body reflections pt. 1. the four track ep captures a uniquely subdued mood that resides at the nexus of ambient dance music. and that integrates seamlessly with tresor’s penchant for restrained and dub-inflected techno. each track on the ep introduces symmetry and rhythm in the form of organic percussion. “overskies- and “enceladus- are more lethargic and ethereal. each blanketed with discordant melodies and arcing synth lines. -hadal zone- is more dance-oriented - here. a sophisticated interplay of percussive elements loop over plaintive vocals and soft harmonies. “syzygy- then brings the ep to a techno-focused close with driving kicks. oscillating synths. and repeating minor chords. body reflections pt. 1 is deeply illustrative of bnjmn’s affinity for creating nuanced and delicately balanced layers. and a culmination of his vast experience.
the vinyl release includes a download code.
new years deal - when we started ilian tape 10 years ago in 2007. we were both basically kids at the ages of 23 (dario) and 18 (marco). there was no plan behind it. no concept. no promotion campaign or any budget. but just an early vision of where it could go. we wanted to build something that lasts. after a few years of playing at parties and producing music. it was the next logical step to start a label. you can clearly see us growing up through the label in terms of artwork. compiling the records and handling things. we made some mistakes along the way and there are surely things we could have done better. but looking back after 10 years now it all makes sense as it was a natural and human development with all its ups and downs. it was always a very personal project. never about making money. but about creating a platform for music we believe in and building relationships with artists in a transparent and fair way. we really appreciate that we were able to work with so many great artists. who shared the same vision and trusted in us. over all the years. a while ago we moved away from the ordinary release info write ups. because in general writing about music is tricky and who isn’t tired of the typical. full of praise for every detail of a record. release texts? but this might be starting to get boring for you too. so just buy this lovely triple vinyl package including a poster and download code. light one up and turn up the volume! one last thing though – we want to deeply thank our parents for teaching us to live our dreams and find out who we really are. our friends for the vibes and honesty. all the artists releasing on the label. all the supporters & fans for buying vinyl and files. all the dj’s playing out the stuff. all the diggers selling the stuff overpriced on discogs. all the dancers working out on the dancefloors & all the clubs doing label nights over all the years.
