without artwork cover - only standard cover (see picture)...ltd warehouse / backstock - the midnite ep is the follow up ep to delano smith s sunrise ep on third ear recordings, released at the end of 2008. the sunrise ep was one of the underground house records of 2009, and the midnite ep is set to be one of the underground house records of 2010. both delano and us think the midnite ep is better than sunrise. after the sunrise ep, we decided to do it again and maintain the theme and name the next ep after a moment, a feeling within the dance floor experience. we decided on midnite. once again we have selected four tracks from a selection that delano sent us. you can play these tracks at any time of the day or night, and we encourage you to experiment in this way. however, dropping any of these tracks at midnite will ensure that you, your dance floor and all the people in the room will be set up for the journey. :-) a1: a special kind is constructed in the classic style of filtered samples from another record over a fat (really fat as this is a record made in detroit) kick drum. the samples are from ashford and simpson s stay free from 1979 on warner bros records. it is a sign of a good dance music producer that s/he can take an already great track and turn it into a dance floor bomb. delano has done this with a special kind. 117bpm. a2: dee s gruv is a very deep, very atmospheric groove. a crisp snare, a growling bass, a kick drum of varying intensity though the track framing the vibe, and a subtly modulating chord that goes on forever. hi-hats and ride cymbal move in and out of the track as it ebbs and flows. this kind of deep, grooving suspension of time is becoming a delano smith speciality. 122bpm. b1: the exploration is delano working through the same ideas as he explores in dee s gruv. hitting harder and driving faster than dees gruv, the exploration is a continuation of delano s search for the ultimate deep house groove. all students of electronic dance music should check this.

djulzs bass culture records revisits home soil with its forthcoming work ep, from young parisian techno gem, john jastszebski. bubbling under the radar whilst building support through residencies at paris social club and rex club, jastszebski received affirmation for his early productions from the likes of luciano, richie hawtin and agoria. flash forward to late 2012 and djulz has snapped up the talented producer for a four track ep, backed by a bonus remix from chicago born, detroit raised house don, delano smith. the work ep is all twilight silkiness, the skill behind the alluring, forward thinking construction instantly inviting you on the journey. from soothing piano riffs to tribal drum work and allusions to mother nature, the work of both jastszebski and smith on the remix maintains bass cultures tradition of technical clarity and creativity.
while feeling very honored and excited to have three extremely talented artists feature on his new real tone records release, shonky the french berlin-based producer who is also a part of apollonia, has asked larry heard, delano smith and the martinez brothers a couple of different questions each to give us more of an insight to them and their artistry.

they may have grown up in different generations on different sides of the atlantic, but one thing detroit master delano smith and irish up and comer gavin herlihy share in common is a disregard for boundaries. deftly slipping between the definitions of house and techno, both have carved names for themselves by ignoring the laylines of either genre to imprint their own inimitable stamp on dance music. on krypton factor the pair link talents to deliver an ep that is typically irreverent of trends or genres.

christian smith s tronic label has produced some real highlights over the last few years from a great many producers such as valentino kanzyani, martyn hare, christian himself as well as the deadly duo of smith and selway. this time we see christian smith on his own doing the damage with finca dofi - a clubby techno track that builds superbly with its crisp synth line and cool edits. it has a very funky feel with its shuffled percussion and cool breaks. on the flip side one of the producers of the moment - alexi delano delivers the goods once again with a more stripped down version with an altogether more dubbed out feel that has cool trippy elements but utilisies the original sounds to great effect
