the “digital revolution” occurred in the jamaican music industry by a single rhythm called “sleng teng”. the responsible person for the rhythm was king jammy who was the owner and producer of the jammys label. the label dominated the scene between 1985 and 1989, and released a vast number of material. dub store records compiles the best of the 80’s heavyweight dancehall from the jammys catalogue. the collection consists of “disc one: vocals & deejays” and “disc two: instrumental dub version”. each disc features popular songs and instrumental dub versions on the “heavenless”, “love punanny bad” and “far east” rhythms, among others. they also include rare collector’s tunes like anthony johnson’s “dancehall vibes”. this is a crucial selection for all dancehall lovers.

what would electronic music be without remixes? this is a question andrew claristidge had to answer last year after releasing his first solo album danser ou mourir. reworking the song of an other musician is a common thing nowadays. what is the purpose of it ? what if we would do the same in literature ? imagine asking philip roth to rewrite houellebecq... this is pure fantasy and this came to andrew s head.
having delivered a stand out pair of eps to untilmyheartstops last year and moonlighted on greta cottage workshop, freerotation alumni duckett lands on the ever adventurous galdoors with a spellbinding collection of compositions that seek to send delicate synthesiser sequences into romantic, cosmic pastures. -no relation to me- shimmers with intricate layers of melody while -my other life on earth begins this morning- works around off-kilter rhythmic configurations to create a hypnotic workout. the subtlety carries through to the b-side, where -everything works backwards- pulls at the heartstrings before -but my mind- settles into a woozy, uneasy funk.

produced on an array of hardware in slim steve’s bedroom in rome, this is a refreshingly honest ep and takes x-kalay into somewhat nostalgic territory. 90’s ballads meet sampled italo percussion, skittish pitched up vocals pierce dangerous basslines and lung busting breakdowns give way to searching lasers in smoke filled rooms. english born italian steve langrish accomplishes all this with a level of effortlessness that belies his astonishingly young years.
the album was written, produced, and distributed in garys hometown baltimore, between 1986 and 1987. after a break from performing while getting belated college degrees, gary returned to performing in the early 21st century, back to the singer/songwriter style of his past. gary feels that the generic art ensemble/original soundtrack days gave him an ability to open up his writing. his recent albums feature guitar, but many songs do have keyboards added to give them a fuller, less folky sound.

funk was the syncopated groove that emerged in the mid-sixties through hits from james brown and dyke and the blazers. it was a natural development out of rhythm and blues. thousands of local bands tried to emulate brown’s success, and in the process created a plethora of rare and sought after 45s and album cuts that have been mined by djs and producers to fill floors or provide breakbeats. whilst the 20 tracks on this compilation would cost you thousands of pounds to own on their original issue, that isn’t really the point. instead you get to listen to magnificent grooves such as mickey & the soul generations explosive ‘iron leg’, andrew brown’s blues tinged ‘you made me suffer’ or the message music of 24 carat black.

hifi sean, angesehener dj/produzent (ministry of sound, savage disco) und ex-frontmann der schottischen rave-band the soup dragons, liefert mit -ft.- ein party-pop-album mit gute-laune-faktor und vielen promi-features ab. die 13 tracks basieren auf sonnigen disco/funk/house/techno-grooves, während seine feature-gäste von house-queen crystal waters über funkateer bootsy collins bis avantgardistin yoko ono reichen und bei new wave-legenden wie dave ball (soft cell), fred schneider (b-52s) und alan vega (suicide) lange nicht aufhören.
few would challenge the claim that the 1960s and 70s have been the most fertile two decades in the history of popular music ever - a period which, regardless of genre, laid the foundations for everything that has followed. what is more, this period was so fertile that the speed with which tastes changed left a colossal amount of incredible music to gather dust - perhaps most famously a profusion of funk, soul and jazz. it was a musical legacy that lay mouldering until the rise of sampling in late 80s hip-hop precipitated a mad scramble for lost crates and suddenly, the music that became known as rare groove - for obvious reasons (it was rare and very groovy) - experienced a phoenix-like rebirth. a quarter of a century on and a million funk, soul, jazz-funk and rare groove compilations, re-presses and re-releases later, you d think that cupboard was bare and yet, even now, there are gems to be found. pt is re-releasing the rarest of cuts that often were originally only limited runs or private pressings and new compilation down & wired is just such a collection. always soulful, this features everything from mod groovers and northern stompers, to funky bumps and latin heaters. yet while the quality of all cuts is immediately apparent, only one of the eleven has ever been previously been compiled because when pt do rare, they don t mess around. in fact, if these tracks were steaks - they d still be walking around eating grass.

culled over the naïve bedroom sessions of early university, “chillax” is akin to blaring an extra hot mixtape from a junky deck in your car on your way to cape canaveral to see the last space shuttle leave earth, all while trying to speed run kirby’s dream land on your sister’s gameboy color.
heavy sampling tends to drive this jeep and give it some character, many popular/unknown gems lifted from various dusty tapes and wax procured from thrift stores and vinyl throughout northern florida, cheap drum machines are clumsily slammed against it all and keep everything in a familiarly dance-y zone, while amateur chords and melodies are provided via guitar center synths and youtube ripped commodore 64 blips and stabs (note the cheeky nintendo voices as outliers). a fusion of analog discoveries and pixelated memories (melded together by the relentless florida heat), its an apt soundtrack for long and wistful road trips.

basil & rogers is a sleazy, california disco duo made up of heru (dj) johnny basil and body rogers. basil, a multi-instrumentalist, long-time record collector, and energy healer is a man that s been making music for a long time under many different guises and in many different styles. heru avenger (acid/psych rock), non stop (electronic/free jazz), baast (kraut rock/jazz funk), and kandi jones (slut rock) are just a few of his projects, past and present. most of this music has been around for the entirety of the 90 s and 2000 s without being heard because despite basil s outspoken appearance (described by many as looking like iggy pop s twin brother and would never be caught wearing a t-shirt no matter the location) he s very quiet about his musical output. body rogers is also part of the non stop group and is a master of electronics and engineering. on the basil & rogers project the two have made a disco 12- that is influenced by classic-era dance music while still being completely unique and far from conforming. it s crazy, it s sexy, and it s sleazy. tune in .

modern love very rarely reaches out to artists outside of its immediate surroundings, it’s happened just a couple of times in the last 14 years. but there’s something about philippe hallais that compelled the label to ask him if he wanted to do something together. philippe has released music on a bunch of cool labels (l.i.e.s., the trilogy tapes, delsin, in paradisum), but hearing the first tracks recorded for lighthouse stories, it was obvious philippe was hitting on something new: a kinda weird slow/fast dance music that sounded like a footwork variant sewn up with an exotic production style that was impossible to pin down. these tracks eventually splintered off into different directions, held together by a strong sense of narrative and motion harking back to a teenage obsession with turntablism, detroit electro and ghetto house, and eventually juke and grime. although he’s spent the last few years focusing on more industrial dancefloor variants, for lighthouse stories philippe turned to these foundational influences, as well as his love of mixtapes and sound collages full of unfinished ideas, skits and experiments, all things that inform the flow of this new album. lighthouse stories captures a sense of nostalgia well, but is also a futuristic vision full of that exploratory, vibrant spirit that’s so hard to find in electronic music these days. frames of reference are hard, but in places it reminds us of the dusted swagger of anthony shake shakir, the acquatic drexciyan movements of ultradyne, a loose-limbed take on shangaan, and of actress at his most submerged. but ultimately, it’s an album made by a producer looking to his personal history while forging new ground, pushing ahead with little regard to convention and ultimately ending up with something completely unique: a kind of intimate journal rendered in bright colours and odd shapes.
in a world where a lot of music can sound the same, yse saint laur ant is like a red umbrella in a sea of grey. for years he has shown a gift for choosing a unique array of samples to paint a picture. then building upon them with warm, slinky and expressive drums. his first outing on editorial s waxed series faux me?tier in 2014 was a definite hit. here he returns to editorial with his cure for gravity ep as a special record store day release we will let the music do the talking from here. hope you enjoy and find something for a place in your sets.
