limited numbered & handstamped 180 gram vinyl.
commix returns to dispatch dubplate, releasing some of his most in demand dubs.
simplicity and vibe remains essential to the commix sound, with a stripped back, techno inspired ethos enabling his music to carry great longevity, no matter the style. unreleased for a decade but still as effective as ever, daggers dub heads up the release, sitting comfortably alongside the murmuring, freshly cut surveillance . progressive and deeply rooted, with infectious low ends that stick into your mind, disdub012 showcases the unmistakable prowess of commix.
commix completes his generation ep series with part 3, carrying on from where the 2nd instalment left off. again, the ep explores commixs influences from electronic music and beyond, culminating in an extremely polished final part that were excited to release.
matt edwards newly launched reissue label, r-time records, prepares its third release, the second instalment of sir lord comixx retroactive. r-time records shines a light on classic tracks that didnt always get the recognition they deserve, with the labels first two releases coming from sir lord comixx and fbk. real name amoon andrews, sir lord commix’s discography has been in high demand for many years, evident by soaring market prices. the a-side of retroactive (part two) features two tracks from a rare untitled release on hard up, whilst the b-side is made up of chicago jazz from the funk box ep on eukahouse (under his a.moon moniker in 98) and motionvibe from azid jazz ep on cynic in 05. cosmic synths join wonky arps in ur my omen before moving into the more up-tempo fog horn with its robust drums, off-beat bleeps and filtered effects. chicago jazz takes things into deeper territories with crystalline rhodes and jazz-influenced samples until motionvibe concludes the package with its syncopated structure comprised of twisted sounds, murky atmospherics and effervescent nuances.
rekids launch re-issue label entitled r-time records with four timeless tracks from sir lord comixx. having established a handful of renowned imprints such as rekids, pyramids of mars, cabin fever and the double r, matt edwards new venture aims to shine a light on classic tracks that didn t always get the recognition they deserve. amoon sir lord comixx and i go back a long way and we met through our friend justin isonoe in the early 90s,” says matt edwards. “i was still living in catford and would regularly drive over to justin s studio where he d play me all this crazy, otherworldly music from amoon and it blew my mind i was completely captivated by his unique take on techno. at the time i had no idea that we grew up in the same neighbourhood and amoon was living just around the corner so, of course, we hooked up and in 1996 i released an ep from him including one of his classics ur my omen on my hard up label.” composed of four tracks from separate releases, retroactive (part one) inaugurates with 1 4 the groove from sir lord comixx s danceteria ep on ugly music. produced in 96, the track s raw aesthetic features sharp percussion, heady melodies and a compelling groove. meanwhile, enemax - which appeared on 1a records demonstrates throbbing synths and shuffling drums. originally produced under his a.moon moniker in 98, funk box is the most robust track on the package with its thudding kicks and assortment of meandering sounds, before the azid jazz provides a deep and funky finale.
resuming our dispatch dubplate series in 2017, we are excited to welcome commix to the fold, with a debut release this may. presenting four exclusive cuts from the uk born berliner, the release features quintessential, club primed commix rollers, alongside some profound and polished experimentation, providing a true sense of the depth in his quality today.
still retaining the renowned infectiousness of his back catalogue, commix nimbly connects the dots between flavours of the past and his path for the future, authentically delivering yet another classic release, something we felt called for a vinyl release right from the off.
with 400 hand stamped, signed and numbered heavyweight vinyl copies available, there is a very limited press and much like previous dispatch dubplates, this will never be re-pressed.
amoon andrews is one of those cult producers from the mid 90s that could have easily remained under the radar were it not for passionate, tuned in labels like knoe tracking down their wares and finding out what didnt get released the first time around. the sir lord comixx material packs all the hallmarks of great 90s deep house, and so it goes on this next round of dat-sourced goodness.new world is a swirling gem that would sound right at home on guidance, while danceteria gets a twitchy spring in its step that should set the party alight.dance on the ceiling is equally feisty in its make-up, working some choice midi sax tones into the melee before physical oceans sets off into adventurous electro territory
british deep house veteran sir lord commix is the latest producer to hand over dats of forgotten late 90s studio sessions to the team behind for those that knoe. predictably, they ve chosen four great cuts to release. first up you ll find the elastic synths, alien melodies and fizzing motor city percussion of early tech-house style shuffler -pieces of dream-, before the p-funk-influenced uk-us garage fusion of -leroy garage- takes us in an altogether breezier direction. flip for the jovonn style synthesizer melodies and groovy garage rhythms of -new jersey-, and the electro-inspired intelligent techno dreaminess of -destiny-.
commix is back and it’s a very welcome return. generation ep1 is a collection of tracks that were previously unavailable on vinyl and obviously very much in demand, not only that but two new commix tracks that lead the way for new material.
debut single for this hi-tech low-life straight from the slums of hong kong. the music of scott young is much like the city itself, intense and claustrophobic on one hand, dreamy and cinematic on the other. these tracks were made in what he calls the spaceshuttle energized by late night noodles under the shimmering neon signs.
on limited hand stamped (commix logo) white widespine sleeves : anyone who was listening to electronic music, and particularly drum & bass, in 2007 will clearly remember the arrival of commix critically acclaimed debut album >call to mind<. at that time breakbeat music clocking up more than 170bpms was heavily dominated by a swathe of pendu-clones and a propensity to squash just about every piece of dynamic headroom a digital audio file could offer.
SATELLITE TYPE 2 - MARCEL DETTMANN REMIX (10 INCH)
10" Vinyl UK16.11.10
the final part of the epic remix album. you ve had the burial sampler, youve had the cd, youve had ep1 & ep2 and now its time for the final piece of this massive jigsaw. and what a piece it is marcel dettmann second remix of satellite type 2 is a masterpiece, it captures the essence of the original along with its energy. first class mix from berlins finest. on the flip we have metalheadz new boy pedestrian, and with support from giles peterson and more this guy is really making waves right now. the remix encapsulates the sound of the uk right now, people call it future garage we just call it good music. expect more from pedestrian and metalheadz in the future
burials lp is, as far as were concerned, the best electronic album of any genre in the last 10 or even 15 years. its dripping with understated euphoria and completely individual. we knew we wanted to have him involved and were over the moon when he accepted. the results speak for themselves really: a truly timeless piece of music. (words by commix)
little nobody – in fact australian expat andrez bergen, whos been based in tokyo these past 10 years – then decided to ask justin robertson (lionrock) to remix. while counting on robertsons experience rebooting björk, happy mondays, fatboy slim, luke slater and felix da housecat, andrez is also a long-time fan and suspected the mix-master would have an absolute field day here – which he apparently did, giving the ingredients a good hearty shake and delivering a concoction that stunned everybody.

featuring new tracks from d bridge, foreign concept & bringa, break, alix perez, phace & rockwell and the huge club classic >ultra clean< from icicle & commix, - ladies and gentlemen - we introduce the >way of the warrior< ep 1.
this format is 4x12inch vinyl & 2 x cd packaged together in a gatefold sleeve shrink wrapped. as normal with exit records, theres no prejudice in the track selection. well known producers such as skream, instra:mental, scuba and commix rub shoulders with some inspiring new talents such as indigo, synkro, mode and code 3. the theme of the album is quality timeless music, whether it be a dancefloor killer such as systems >observation point< or loxy & resounds >vertigo< through to the tangerine dreamlike sounds of croms >invisible cities< or strays >pushed<. this album truly represents the more experimental side of drum n bass, as opposed to the crash bang wallop that seems to be the only side of drum n bass portrayed by the mainstream media today. hopefully this album will manage to reach the people that thought this forward thinking music was left behind in the nineties, to let them know that its still alive and well, and still capable of throwing up some surprising and unpredictable results.
