northsouth records invite emergent talents chris geschwinder and henry hyde to whip up some dazzling peak time house fare, with each artist presenting themselves across two tracks. geschwinder is up first with the charging modern axis of evil, matching the haunting purr of the lead synths with an insistent kick and clap combo that can t be argued with. hes no slouch on in 2 either, getting into a subtly lopsided and seriously swinging spot that its hard to wriggle out of. henry hyde too seems to have a focused vision for what they create, fusing the pops and wobbles of minimal and matching it with the overall bulbous nature of the music on northsouth.
northsouth is a new london-based label, started between 3 friends. this first release sees frankfrurts chris geschwindner take charge on the north side and henry hyde on the south. each artist has provided 2 tracks, showcasing different sounds in their production styles and is a strong start for the new imprint.

changing tides ep is the fourth release of our kommuna tapes imprint. the a sides features two breaky, electro-infused tracks from undersound affiliate chris geschwindner, while the flipside goes back to the roots: adam collins, half of legendary tech-house golden era duo omni am, brings us impeccable groove, and early 00s deep house icon seafoam allows us to trip up through the early evening or morning hours.
track by track, we build a kommuna of artists who share our insatiable appetite for music discovery, guided by a certain vision of the dancefloor: deep stripped-down grooves, sometimes challenging, always with character.
autodidact ventures into the area of jungle/dnb music with the first part in a series of two by selva massiva, a project by roger gerressen and alex jansen. on the b-side chris geschwindner takes both tracks and makes sure the ep is still suitable for dance floors with two excellent remixes.
obrani records are proud to present strangeman - an ep from the young and talented producer plantae, who has conquered the minimal hearts of techno and house heads alike. the intensity and broadness of plantaeís musical pallet, reflected in every crease of the release, will appeal to diggers from all scapes of the globe. from grassroots break-beat to snappy hats and bold percussion, occasionally visited by passing high notes, like comets in a coma of ever-changing motive. if forced to reduce his sound to words, musical abstractionism would hit as close to home as the 808 bass drum. undoubtedly, strangeman made itís way to the obrani records collection.
