tokyo tag-team kei and nagi sugano, aka dazzle drums, have been responsible for secret weapons in the bags of some of the finest djs since their debut in 2005. in addition to supporting danny krivit each time he plays in tokyo, the duo periodically floats him exclusive edits to test out during his expansive sets. two of these in particular have become regular features on m. k s dance floors, and it is these prime choices that have been selected for the latest release on most excellent unlimited. -brothers gonna work it out- takes the cinematic soul classic and toughens it up with a propulsive drum track and immaculate editing to extend and energize the already powerful tune. -get down boy- is a relentlessly driving disco cut whose dramatic synth-and-string heavy instrumentation provides a plush bed for seductive female vocals before giving way to a tremendous bass break that is certain to leave dancers in a sweat. reverently mastered and spread over a wide-grooved 12-inch single, it s another meu sure-shot.

andreas tilliander released his first album as mokira at the very turn of the millennium on almighty raster noton. 11 years later, the latest mokira album time axis manipulation was issued on ulf erikssons kontra-musik and now it s time to pick up where we left off with chill out . there s an air of happy retrospect and light solemnity surrounding the new album - enhanced by the fact that it marks kontra-musik s 50th release. with chill out , mokira attempts to bring back the dreamlike state from those magical late nights of his youth spent in front of mtv s chill out zone, to go back to his ambient roots using contemporary techniques and perspectives. the result? well, imagine lee scratch perry and klf enjoying an episode of stranger things on a crappy vintage tv after being hard at work burying old tape recordings in perry s tropical garden. imagine them sitting together totally at peace in a big, cosy sofa while a heavy haze is building up in the room, pleasantly affecting the eerie images on the screen. we always knew kontra-musik s 50th release had to be something quite out of the ordinary. as expected, mokira didn t disappoint us one bit. the vinyl lp is accompanied with a download code for a mixed version of the album, containing almost double the amount of tracks. the mixed version makes it easy for the chill out listener to just sit back and let go of reality for a while, just like mokira did 25 years ago in front of his old tv.

sleeper cell is the new collaboration between earthen sea and lovers rock label head ital. recorded over three days and nights in a dark ny winter, * quality of life* reflects a declining america in a winter of its own. corroded dub atmospheres, haunting melodies, subdued flashes of tenderness and occasional searing noise swim together like murky oil in a puddle of grimy water on the side of the road. opening with the entrancing * initiate* , * sleeper cell* welcome the listener into their world, where menacing whispers dance and echo around synth swells and a poignant lead melody. from there, the duo journey through a crumbling and eerily spacious sound world.

nice price deal !!! cellicos was originally conceived on a rainy day travelling southbound via rail, the melody interweaving with the rhythms of the train, different frequencies masked and accentuated by the wash of noise on the tracks, the interaction of interminable flow and unpredictability also a kind of reflection on the moment. brendon moeller s funky reinterpretation focuses on the buoyant melodies, allowing each development of the tune to shine on its own, all held together by his trademark deep house swing. davor s menacing rework, by contrast, dwells in the subliminal textures and off-kilter rhythms of the original, tweaking them for the deepest late-night bass excursion
nice price deal !!! nerve theater might not (yet) ring a bell, but when we say franco cangelli things should get a lot clearer. this is his more minimal project, while he also shows his other sides on his own imprints mowar and aesthetik. he provided us with two tracks, bit vaguely referring to some old dbx and days when minimal wasnt the watered down house we know today. the title song is available both digitally and on vinyl, while the second track shake down low remains only on vinyl. the first remix is by cesare vs disorder, who really took a major leap forward in 2009 with releases on esteemed labels like dumb unit, resopal schallware and archipel, and prolific dj sets worldwide including the famous fabric. second remix is only available on vinyl, and takes it to a more bass driven level, as donk boys (frankie records, dirtybird, siteholder) apply their signature no nonsense approach to the title track. expect brutal bass kicks that aim merciless at your feet and ear drums.
