the previous 3 volume series is now compiled as a compact 2lp. the late, great j dilla is rightly celebrated as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time, in part because his ear for music was so diverse and expansive. as dilla’s mother ma dukes explains, “he didn’t come with a limited capacity, and real producers produce, produce, and produce. “there are no formats for genius workers ... just non-stop creations.” now, a fresh batch of those creations will be made available to the world for the first time, in the form of the latest official j dilla release, dillatronic. presented by ma dukes and compiled by djs alien villainz (fellow detroit natives who worked closely with dilla), dillatronic contains over 40 rare instrumentals that showcase dilla’s undeniable electronic influences. j dilla’s music was impacted by the diverse musical history of detroit - the birthplace of techno and one of the most important cities in the history of electronic music. “you can hear it in songs like ‘raise it up’ for slum village or ‘make it hurt’ for busta rhymes,” says young rj (dilla’s protégé and member of slum village). “the detroit influence is part of what gave him an edge in production.” with today’s music sounding more electronic than ever, dillatronic has a shockingly contemporary feel. “these tracks are still ahead of their time sonically,” explains rj. “the things producers are doing now, dilla did that 15 years ago.”
albuquerque s plastik people continues to be the leading bastion for hard swinging garage house in the deep south. this time label boss marc cotterell has linked up with dominic balchin as tuff vibes to bring the classically informed heat to the people who just cant get enough of that warm, soulful sound. leave me cold does the absolute opposite of its title thanks to the oodles of piano, organ and more melodic flexing besides. jazzy 99 is a more accurate guide with its sassy sax licks and vibing chords, and then rhythm of the vibe pushes the tempo up for a purely dancefloor minded workout.

nice price deal !!! nice price deal !!! ears open for this flex002, a collection of fresh made in italy house and the first journey with our new “piada spaceship”, we are pleased to welcome this bunch of astronauts that made this 12” a versatile tool for every kind of dance floor. yougrent, with his hypnotic and full dreamy track (don’t give us a chance!), the hill’s -short track- which embraces mpc beats and a 303-like evolving bass, alongside the collaboration between our men dj rou and opponent, who build their “afrowalk” on a never-ending jazzy loop. on b side you can find the dirty bass driven by tengrams that make the things more raw, the closing track is from luckyfeels which creates a fresh house track on a 90’s piano.
the late, great j dilla is rightly celebrated as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time, in part because his ear for music was so diverse and expansive. from the smooth, soulful soundbeds he laid down for a tribe called quest, slum village, the pharcyde, common, the roots, and d’angelo to the hard-edged, synth-heavy tracks he crafted for busta rhymes, jaylib, oh no, and phat kat, jay dee’s music continued to grow and evolve throughout his brief time on this planet. as dilla’s mother ma dukes explains, “he didn’t come with a limited capacity, and real producers produce, produce, and produce. there are no formats for genius workers…just non-stop creations.”
now, a fresh batch of those creations will be made available to the world for the first time, in the form of the latest official j dilla release, dillatronic.

2015 repress - from the first glimpses of henry laufers work as shlohmo, it was clear that the la native and visual artist turned self-taught musician was onto something. with an effortless grasp on sound design, laufer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, subtle bass drops and swinging slow motion drums. his early work has placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst west coast producers… inspired by the desire to write songs and create a release of full-range instrumentation and vocals all his own, laufer promptly began home-recording >bad vibes<, his proper full-length debut album for the friends of friends label. some might say the songs on >bad vibes< represent the spawn of a new rhythm and blues - one that swings and sways under the backbone of henrys own take on modern electronic music. augmented with delicate slide guitar playing, homemade synth sounds and lilting, tuneful melodies, shlohmos latest output is one that will take you places - specifically the un-paralleled vibes swirling through this young mans head.

der 12-track starke longplayer wurde von grammy-gewinner und ikone kanye west exekutiv produziert. »er wollte die kultur durch meine stimme und meine musik fördern«, so theophilus. »er wollte mir dabei helfen, ein besserer musiker zu werden und stand mir während des gesamten entstehungsprozesses von ›vibes!‹ zur seite. nachdem er meinen song ›neu law‹ auf seiner anlage im auto durch paris fahrend hörte, entschied er sich dazu exekutiver produzent des albums zu werden.«

we have been working with knarf skipson since the very early days of deep vibes recordings and, just like a good red wine, 7 years of waiting have been worth the while. this 5 track ep brings you nothing but pure sampling madness, wild composing and some wicked beats that all go in line with the likes of koze, kdj or shake shakir.
that dope loop pinning down sascha dive as cocoons deephouse wunderkind wouldnt really hit the nail on the head however it isnt far from truth. compared to most other artists of this genre he can for sure be classified as a young gun but there is no soundproof for his age in his music at all.
in a world where the internet overflows with the bedroom edits of thousands of would-bes and never-haves, it is worth remembering that there was a time, not so very long ago, when the edit block was an exclusive territory that only true disciples could enter.
deep vibes recordings returns to the fore with none other than notorious frank heinrich aka reboot, purveyor of masterfully crafted rhythm etudes and a highly respected member of frankfurts vibrant house scene. with deep v, the offenbach-bred producer brings his seething second album to sascha dives imprint, bursting at the seams with intricate percussive bliss and nimble-footed grooves for the enthused dancer.
