interstate 87 presents an experimental trilogy of swirling textures, crunchy glitches, and mysterious synth lines. from the introspective, wandering melodies of the title track, to the cold, expansive chords in islay, and finally, the uplifting drone of truckers, interstate 87 is a meditative journey through a dynamic and nuanced sonic palette.
following on from his releases on kolour recordings and profound, berlin resident ant orange’s latest 12“ on karaoke kalk is an innovative record packed full of diverse and lively tracks. the five tunes on the single take in an extremely wide range of styles, fusing elements of tribal drumming, funky soul, nu jazz and deep house. omi gets the ball rolling with groovy off beats and a wonky kalimba melody to get your feet tapping. yesterday is a funky dance-floor track while tunes like are you alon and the look are filled with romance and vibes under the careful guise of eclectic electronica. the track hands together brings the 12” to a close drawing inspiration from the same marlene shaw vocal sample that st germain used to such great effect on their hit rose rouge. ant orange brings a new twist to this iconic soul-jazz voice embedding it in a contemporary down-tempo groove. although originally from leeds uk, ant orange has such an mixed range of influences and styles present in his music that the result in a truly global sound. ant orange relocated to berlin some time ago where he now plays out at any opportunity, and with this new single he is again giving something back to his fellow vinyl junkies.
wrapping up a short summer break, speicher returns with a powerful double bill from rising duo hunter/game. its the italian producers second contribution to the series, after having amassed quite a few nods with sneaky club anthems hexagon and bermuda (kompakt extra 83). this was followed by their strong rework of wevals gimme some a much acclaimed highlight of our total 15 compilation (kompakt 340 cd 125). the new material sees them digging even deeper into the hardware circuits while cranking up the momentum a notch or two: opening banger adaptation doesnt feel the need to ease you into the experience, dropping you right in the middle of its frenzied staccato synth throb instead. meanwhile, the path opts for rich, saturated colors and epic melodies, slowly building its case until its ready to blow its lid. these are two extraordinary techno tunes that will command your attention and leave no floor unturned an essential release for both the label and the artists.

chris “bam bam” westbrook is one of the unsung heroes of chicago house. his westbrook label was responsible for releasing a slew of quality records from artists like armando & mike dunn as well as his own productions. one record that mysteriously never officially came out on the label was “hot spot” from 1987, never making it past white label stage. here, for the very first time, “hot spot” finally gets a full release boasting all 4 alternate mixes of the track by the man himself. suggestive lyrics, chattering drum machine rhythms and uplifting pianos in the classic raw chicago style are what makes “hot spot” a special re-issue. harking back to a headier time, the record still slams hard today and shows contemporary producers how house music should really be done. a long lost, un-released nugget from the old school, re-mastered from the original dat and officially released for the first time with original westbrook label artwork in conjunction with bam bam / westbrook records, chicago usa.

right on the heels of aux-records enthusiastically received 1st release featuring very contemporary revisits of the 1950s classic >fever< by franco cinelli and club rayo, this 2nd chapter of the aux-rec project travels to different eras, into different styles. and this is precisely what we had set to do: zig-zag through dance music history in search of personal favorites and classics to be revisited or refreshed. for the present release, we travel to two distinct dates: 1989 for the a-side, and 1979 for the b-side. two tracks that are 10 years apart, but that both share a fiercely upbeat and affirmative musical profile, as well as a certain ageless, core, compositional quality.
a few highlights from the sessions leron recorded in 1987-88 when he was fifteen or so. china trax, featured on ss012, came from these sessions. these were hand made, meaning no sequencing was used for the keys on any of the songs featured, using cassette tape overdubs, a lost science. i had omar touch up the material from those cassettes for this release on vinyl.
