parama welcomes pandilla ltd for its second release, they deliver two original tracks between texture and minimalism, perfectly suited for long after hours. for the remix we are pleased to welcome g76 for a dark and twisted version of the two tracks, with his so special sound and musical personality. played by petre inspirescu.
hamid s h+ (hpls) label continues to plough a furrow into the freakiest corners of the minimal scene, keeping the spirit of labels like telegraph and minibar alive with off-kilter beats, freaky sampling and wayward synth work from lesser known operators. g76 is up on the a side with the wonky wonders of -father-, packing some seriously squelchy monosynth bass and plenty of beat trickery to wriggle under the skin of the most deviant dancers. h+dk (hamid and denis kaznacheev) tackle the b-side with -tachtagol connection-, keeping the drums as slender as possible and using a sweet but subtle pad as the focus of the track. it s a simple approach, but utterly effective.
TABLON TEN INCHES PEOPLE 02 (VINYL ONLY / 10 INCH)
10" Vinyl D05.07.17
a rare collaborative statement of laurine frost and g76 on tablon s ten inches series. swinging jazz, funk and adventurous techno utopia in a gentle conversation of sounds. a unique soundscape that stands far way from the actual trends. obvious trademarks of frost s unusual drums and wacky structures give birth to two peerless compositions with florin gojnea s floating micro-house visions. sweet cake for silent rebel
rituale is a brand new label for 2016 setting off with a beautiful structured ep called (bury me where i fall) by the talented producer known as g76. this ep is made up with 2 original track s lasting up to a good 16 minuets each. a1 youth riot & b1 four for four. the heart and soul of this ep is represented by the rioting youth struggling for a better future in a society riddled with corruption and selfishness.
listed as one of the best clubs worldwide, not to mention best club in romania, midi started their own label with a bang early last year. this time its g76s turn to make you dance with his two tracker.
* timber so* is definitely the melodic one with subtle sweeps and resonated percs running smoothly along a trippy voice. the warm bass will keep your feet warm.
* a fractured neck nock* is the dark one. synths are lurking behind the sick percussion. the guitar riff and a kids voice increase the mystery as the track progresses. this might seem dark and deep but its pumping as well.
released on vinyl only

for those who know the story of the bridge wars, there is some irony found in the fact that scott la rock, representing the south bronx, was born in queens, though he did relocate to the south bronx at a very young age. after graduating high school la rock spent four years in vermont at castleton college where he earned varsity letters in basketball, but more importantly for the world of hip hop he became more and more enamored with music. on graduation he returned to new york and began working as a dj and as a social worker at the franklin armory mens shelter in the bronx. it was at the shelter that scott met kris parker and the duo formed boogie down productions. the rest, as they say, is history. roughly a year after the tragic shooting death of boogie down productions founder, dj and producer scott la rock b boy records and krs-one issued this special remix album, a man and his music (remixes from around the world). billed as a limited edition collectors classic the project was released in a limited run – briefly available in the 90s – and now after years of being unavailable reappears as a tribute to one of the genres early pioneers.

an incredible full album from dinosaur l the legendary new york dancefloor project of arthur russell! the groups a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking all very much in the spirit of russells best quirky club work of the time, but with the added sound here of a more expanded approach one that takes the tunes in a whole new territory than the more famous 12 inch singles! the tracks on the set are simply numbered 1, 2, 3, and so on and come across almost as free jamming instrumentals! totally great stuff as experimental as it is funky!
overview in the 1980s, as hip hop caught fire around new york, sparky d was coming up in the van dyke projects in brownsville brooklyn. she would go on to be one of the first recorded solo female rappers and rise to hip hop stardom. early in her career she was a pivotal player in what came to be known as the roxanne wars. it all kicked off with utfo s roxanne roxxane followed by roxanne shante s debut roxanne s revenge and then a salvo back at shante with utfo and a female mc known as the real roxanne. sparky d then started a trend that ran for what some say was over a hundred assorted answer records and nearly the rest of the decade by jumping into the roxanne trend with sparky s turn (roxanne, you re through). massive spins and sales throughout the city followed. the success of the cut lead to another handful of 12 releases, and this release, her proper full length debut this is sparky ds world,- produced by her boyfriend and old school legend spyder d. though the record didn t take off to the extent that her label mates boogie down productions found with criminal minded....well, what ever did take off like criminal minded. to this day the release serves as a testament to the power of one of hip hop s first female mcs, after all, this is sparky d s world. traffic entertainment group in partnership with b-boy records is proud to release this extended version of the album, out of print in any format for over 14 years. housed in a handsome 6 panel digipak featuring extended artwork and audio including all the 12-cuts, mixes and instrumentals from sparkys classic -throwdown- and -i can t stop- vinyl singles.
