ltd repress! another new name on the slow life catalogue, the californian turned berliner steve huerta. as the ep name suggest he delivers some fresh-loungy-break jams, plus a dancefloor killer featuring label’s own s.moriera.
saverio celestri is back, this time teaming up with late consequence, who’s the new moniker of an already known fellow italian producer. expect house and techno grooves with feeling and power, made fresh, but with the clear influence of past days.
fresh new signing for the slow life stable, coming all the way from sweden. on his first ever release, the talented basement space presents his approach to the very recognizable mix of breaks and deepness which the label is mostly known for, but giving his personal flavor. overall, the ep has a strong influence of the classic ukg/2step sound, rounded with a cheerful jazzy track on the b-side.
the new slow life release is a hidden gem from the 90s signed by the australian deep/ambient master, tim jackiw. after more than a decade, and thanks to an adventitious encounter with some of the tracks via youtube rip of a promo cassette given on party back in the day, these beauties are finally pressed on wax.

with >slow potion<, asli takes the cold barren landscape of iceland, marries it with the deep soul of new york (think ibadan or objektivity) and then throws in a hint of banging german minimalism (think kompakt vs mobilee). and what comes out is truly a dancefloor masterpiece - beautiful and at the same time a full ‘hands in the air peaktime banger. classical strings joined by electronic beats and a throbbing bassline. on the flip side with >east city life<, he takes it even deeper. minimal yet groovy, asli builds us a perfect track for the late night

den sinn des lebens haben schon viele gesucht, meistens vergebens. eine, die ihn gefunden hat, ist popikone kelly clarkson – zumindest, wenn man dem titel ihres neuen albums glauben schenkt: hier ist »meaning of life«.
damit stellt die us-amerikanische sängerin 2017 ihr mittlerweile achtes studiowerk vor, den mit spannung erwarteten nachfolger ihres nummer-eins-albums »piece by piece« aus 2015. gleichzeitig ist es ihr debüt beim r’n’b- und soullabel atlantic records.
dass »meaning of life« perfekt in den katalog der plattenfirma passt, bewies clarkson bereits anfang september mit ihrer sinnlichen und gleichzeitig groovigen ersten single »love so soft«.
für ihr neues album hat sich die sängerin diesmal gleich ein ganzes team hochkarätiger songwriter ins boot holte. dazu gehören unter anderem ihre langjährigen musikalischen partner jason halbert und jesse shatkin sowie starproduzent greg kurstin, der bereits für künstler wie adele, sia, p!nk und die foo fighters arbeitete.
garrett came from the inside of his own mind, from within a home recording studio somewhere on planet earth. the private life of creative awareness and the music captured here is the visceral offering to all outside. every one of us has a private life. this is garrett’s... big tip!
another debut producer joins the ranks of slow motion with a distinctive take on some classic sounds. armonics hails from bari, deep in the italian south and his first ep is at turns blissful, jacking and dare we say, playful. for a first ep, armonics has certainly nailed his musical colours to the mast. crossing with ease between disco, balearic and an indefinable x-factor.

the second in the series of 12 inch samplers featuring present and future classics from brooklyns monthly party, life, spring sampler 2012 #2 picks up where the first installment left off, deeper into the rabbits hole of the all-night underground parties at the infamous dope jams. curators and residents slow to speak offer here 3 remixes and re-imaginings of some of the finest technoid sleaze, haunted vocal anthemics and zulu-nation-endorsed hip-house perfection. spring sampler 2012 #2 is a snapshot of a life party at its most elevated, after the initiation and immersion is complete, the core party people convened, the sacramental beverages consumed and the full peak of the party unfolded in its full spectacle. previously, these exclusive versions have remained in the vault for protected and exclusive use by the life residents. made available through these limited samplers, slow to speak opens up for a rare snapshot into the heart and soul of their program—militant musical theses that drive these parties and make them something more special than the typical dance music burial rite.

straight from the darkened alleyways of outer paris, acatcalledfritz has undertaken a journey of initiation where he breathes his passion for urban music into listeners, taking us along with his suitcases for the ride through space and time, searching for an airy and personal sound, too rare in the french music of today. this is the combination of drawing and music, taking us to the depths of fritz, a solitary cat full of nostalgia. this isnt a beatmakers instrumental record, its a characters entire universe, an artistic, musical and graphic vision, influenced by his readings, records and musicians met over the past two years. his influences are varied and go from massive attack to joni mitchell and rza or jay dee, but the end result is his and his alone, essential!!!
