two tracks from alden tyrell which he played in his live sets a couple of times. produced without the intention to release them or do anything with it beside using them a few times in his sets. however after we played the tracks from cdr we just needed to get them on vinyl! so here they are... two basic chicago house trax ready to be played out loud!

titbit music is proud to introduce the debut ep by another member of the titbit crew, giancarlo lanza aka d.a.t.a., along with a remix by brett johnson. <titbite> ep is a quality three tracker of jacking and driving minimal techno which follows the path of the label with its pushing, hot and ironic appeal!!
this is a textured soundscape energized by drums that might sound inspired from the influences of the past but are clearly crafted with sounds pulled from the future. from here we arrive at prisms, an interlude that at first seems relaxed until you realize that with just a combination of arpeggiated synths, percussive elements and noises plucked from the ether you are smack in the middle of a piece of music that somehow wraps its emotion around a moving image that moves you with it.
bruno pronsato returns with his new album, a face wasted on the theatre, written & produced in collaboration with the israeli musician, yonatan levi.
pronsato and levi have been collaborating intermittently since 2014, with levi adding bass guitar to tracks on both pronsato’s us drag lp from last year and 2016’s ndf ep, cruel is the color, as well as contrabass on a track on pronsato’s archangel lp from 2014.
written in the afternoons and between two different studios in berlin’s prenzlauer berg, the album spans eight tracks, with yonatan levi playing on bass guitar on six of them. it also features guest appearances by downtown composer/producer peter gordon and israeli saxophonist yonatan yudkowitz on “bring me a kill.”
braiden s material has been slow to come out since he first landed with a bang on doldrums back in 2010. a turn on rush hour confirmed his status as a producer in command of the chops necessary to get a dancefloor shaking, but this years x years in london ost cassette was a chance for him to expand into more experimental pastures. not so on this new 12inch for his off out label, which finds braiden turning up the heat with some fiercely modern tech house workouts. v.o.l.a.t has the same kind of dangerous earworm armour that made paul woolfords erotic discourse so potent all those years ago. hydroplane meanwhile takes some of the crisp but playful tropes of pearson sound et al and straps them to a thrumming motorik beat
nebraska pays tribute to the records that inspired him in the early 90s. original samples from various songs by his favourite hip hop production crew are re-presented in fresh combinations and at new tempos. crisp and crunchy.
having recently made his inaugural outing on brainfeeder with aphelion ep, british producer ross from friends aka felix clary weatherall returns with his debut album on flying lotus label. family portrait is characterised by a perpetual desire to experiment and felixs obsessive attention to detail, somehow marrying an intricately layered production style with warm, heavily saturated sonics that elevate, rather than stifle, his melodious funk. with a handful of revered 12inches under his belt via breaker breaker, lobster theremin, distant hawaii, magicwire and a 10inch on molten jets. family portrait showcases his ability to shift and evolve, moving from the world of lo-fi to the world of flylo, he demonstrates a versatility exemplified by the ease in which he can switch between playing shows with little dragon, holding down a peak-time slot in berghains panorama bar and performing live at maida vale for bbc radio 1. the double vinyl release includes a download code.
