a year from its inception, artesian sounds proudly presents ars002: a debut ep from emre can swim introducing his unique brand of dubby, atmospheric low-bpm house music.
envisioned as a visit to a distant island, the ep opens with ‘another shake’, greeting you as you come ashore with a warm and tranquil mood. with ‘golfclap’, you venture deeper into the mainland, the rainforest thickens and tribal dance ensues. flip the record and things wind back down with hazy after-hours groover ‘slide in deep’. finally, aleksandir makes it a family affair and joins the expedition with a remix, packed with juno melodies and and rhodes-tinged broken beats.
tessellate is back for a second round and this time they are bringing out some heat from turkey via aleksandir. the a side features two club ready tracks, starting with a euphoric and emotional journey by the name of yamaha. following that belgium’s asa moto slow things down and provide a wild and trippy acidic remake of the original.
flip the record over and you’ve got yourself some heavy chillers. dreams is a really dreamy (!) piece of work that is guaranteed to leave you relaxed. friend of tessellate seb wildblood steps up next to do what he does best and provide a lovely remix of the og. finally we close things off with deeptrak, which as the name suggests is a deep track.
luv*jam presents dream house tropicana volumes, dream of tropical palms trees, turtles and waves. blind jacks chief blorper ‘gnork’ hooked l*j up with a secret agent named aleksandir - this very person is here for you now, with his debut record ‘the turtle nipper’. it’s not just an ep, but a mini album of nippiness! get swimming with the turtles on a crest of a wonky wave from istanbul to bristol via terrapenia. limited hand stamped box turtle bonanza.
