the third time is definitely a charm. dokutoku three is here headed up by doubtingthomas delivering a two track ep with seriously smooth jazz inspired atmospheres. the release is topped off by a raw grooving remix of ‘tandem’ by fellow frenchman alexkid.
doubtingthomas returns to organic for his 3rd vinyl release !!! he has been part of the family since day one and never disappoints with that signature sound that is so proper to him ¡! kicking off with “puffed dandy” a stellar stripped back minimalist cut that should make some proper damage on the dance floor . on the flit side, “diapason” is slightly deeper and jazzier, but yet with that distinctive and infectious groove signed dt. “passing tone” is closing the ep nicely. classy atmospheric textures and depth , a real treat for the after hours !
doubtingthomas has recently got a lot of love, and his new two-tracker on mayak shows why. * telegraph* delivers dance rhythms with the speed of light. on the other side - hypnotic groove of * taking control* comes through the bones and makes your skin go goosebump.
we are very proud to present a doubtingthomas vinyl release on metroline limited! capharnauem is a very trippy affair across 3 tracks, 2 originals from aurelien and a remix from the uber talented romanian producer from arpiar fame, cristi cons. off the grid, the opener, stays within the grid until 3/4 of its lenght. a tight kick leads the way with the help of a pulsating bass and some lush pads in typical doubtingthomas style. the off moment happens after the mid way point when the free jazz element comes in and shuffles the groove off the grid!
phiorios animals release has been a labour of love. after co-running metroline limited for the past 6 years and after a series of digital releases and remixes for both metroline and retrometro (as well as letroom limited and mbf amongst others), phiorios vinyl debut on ml finally sees the light of day. the choice of remixers has also been laborious but over at metroline hq we are really happy that in the end we managed to secure two stunning reworks by the likes of the more and more in demand french producer doubtingthomas (with releases on labels such as hummingbird, organic and of course, metroline limited) and the super-hot up and coming russian producers adjustment bureau
following on the outstanding slz single -slow down & dance-, organic-music returns with the very fresh -aku mencintaimu- ep from doubtingthomas, the ep kicks off with the excelent -the long way round- a fusion of precise electronica and slow jazz,pure beauty !!! in a different strong and distinct mood, -koosh- with it s dinamic driving beats and beautifull hidden melody, the third piece -too much information- takes you in a vibe that resembles diving into the deep where you lose sense of time. together with its prolonged sounds that grow on you subtly, it is very danceable although very abstract and liquid piece. its just too good!! to complete the ep, koljah takes on -the long way round- and deliver a superb dinamic and melodic remix.brilliant piece of athmospheric house music that builds a solid groove that has you locked in from start to finish
akbal music has now been turning out essential dance music for a whole ten years and to celebrate this milestone the label puts out a vinyl only release from a fine selection of contemporary artists. vinyl only treat starts from long time german talent sascha dive, the deep vibes boss’s ‘lab#4’ is a quick and prickly number that sucks you into a shady groove underpinned with real bass menace. next up is superlounge with uluwatu dub. the track starts swiftly with clever percussions and a lush pad quickly to progress with several drums rhythms into the bass that will keep the listeners tuned into its groove. romanian mano andrei appears with a sleek and stripped back tune that is full of electronic soul and infectiously bumpy drums and hypnotic vibes. finally minimal master eastenderz and catchrecordings associate doubtingthomas is next with his vinyl only offering, going for a much more intricate, synthetic, richly designed deep house tune that is soft, succulent and truly sublime. this is a fulsome package that packs plenty of punch and showcases exactly the sort of quality dance music that akbal music has been, and will always be, about.
following up our previous daniel sanchez release, we are more than proud to have for this one the impropmtu remixes ep edition which includes 4 fantastic remixes by nima gorji, martinez, doubtingthomas and faster.

hummingbird is proud to present its 5th release by italian dj/producer yaya. known already for his works on loco dices label desolat, he comes to hummingbird with this break out track, that mysterious way. on remix duties we have a stella line up consisting of rising talent doubtingthomas (safari electrique/fra), stalwart producer re.you (souvernir music/ger) and one of frances best kept secrets varoslav (supplementry facts).
after a short production break, the russian techno duo easy changes (denis cast & kilrill silas) are back with a 12 inch on the berlin/london based label, mean records, run by cesare marchese (cesare vs disorder) & federico benedetti (onirik). the lion is also a good drummer fits in nicely with the labels love of minimal techno productions that feature original sounds, moody melodies and deep aural landscapes. easy changes gained recognition in 2007 with two back to back hit releases on foundsound records. in 2009, they were the first ep from nervmusic, a moscow based label that focuses on unconventional techno started by cast, silas and friends. seated comfortably between the avant-garde and the dancefloor, the release has something for everyone. the title track, the lion is also a good drummer is an epic, crawling minimal techno production filled with stripped down percussion and abstract found sounds perfect for after-hours. on the flipside is the uptempo, quirky and tribal burlesque, replete with spliced vocal samples, snares, cymbals, bleeps and claps. for the burlesque remix, french producer doubtingthomas shows off his lifelong obsession with percussion and its rhythmic allure with the addition of a trippy drum solo midway through the track.
