originally released 1992, its an album that ushered in an era of a thousand suburbanites drinking malt liquor, wearing u.s. postal service caps, and reawakening their irish (or in some cases pseudo-irish) heritage. and its also the debut album that ushered house of pain into the forefront of rap culture for a brief period of time. while its unfair to expect a whole albums worth of quality material like the dynamite classic jump around, there are some strong points on their eponymous debut that emulate the singles strength. admittedly, there is a significant amount of filler and the topics du jour arent exactly the most original in hip-hop, but the impact of such songs as *jump around*,*shamrocks and shenanigans*, and *put on your shit kickers* more than makes up for the filler. a debut for a group that showed immense promise that sadly wasnt fully realized.
bad boys sees jungle revivalist serum team up with steppa and kitcha (under their northern lights guise) using a big sample from inner circle paired with crispy breakbeats and booming bass. on the flip >house of pain< - kitchas in the picture once more and the pair tease out a filthy dancefloor killer that is full of moody vibes. this is a great start to a promising new label. fans of dancefloor d&b should pay attention!
two slices of brilliant brazilian disco, painel de controle have a few bangers across their rca lps, these two being my favourites. *relax* is a straight up boogie monster, well known to deep disco & boogie heads flipped with *malandrinh* with its insanely catchy guitar. the original brazilian *relax* 7 inch plays at 33rpm (like many brazilian 45s), if you know you are cutting you will know this is not ideal. our new 7 inch is 45rpm and cut from a super crisp new master from the tapes at timmon cutting labs, sounds about 5x better than the o.g. ... simple choice.
finally, were treated to the epic closer that is camberwell beauty. mid tempo boogie beats with crunchy claps and steady hats lay the bedrock for a loping cs5 bassline whilst lush keys shimmer and swirl like little fluffy clouds in a bright summers sky.
with reality on the horizon, lets play house continues to prove its not afraid to push the boundaries of house music while simultaneously broadening the spectrum of talent its roster embodies. the ep features four tracks by two los angeles-based outfits who have been around for a few years, primarily as taste-maker djs—cosmic kids and fingerpaint, a.k.a. tyler blake of classix
244 km!! thats the distance between berlin and hamburg. this is what hauke freer and matthias reiling do as often as possible to visit each others studios and start fighting over bass lines and kick drums. after some top notch releases on the real soon and morris audio record labels we are very pleased to welcome a four tracker from the duo at hairy claw hq. the boys open up the ep with swashbuckler, hypnotic, minimal grooves with snatches of percussion and spun in samples. very go round carries on the minimal grooves but juxtaposes jazzy snatches and wonky stabs. foot the bill introduces tribal rhythms and samples, whilst drum fest black betty rounds things off with a percussive and left field slant. a varied and impressive debut from hauke and matthias on hairy claw.

deep house doesn t get deeper than deep explorer, dubbyman s evergreen label transmitting out of spain. on this latest 12inch, allstarr motomusic makes a welcome return after the first volume of beauty & simplicty back in 2015. this time they re working in collaboration with vocalist sarignia bonfa and the results are stunning. burning (in my soul) is a gorgeous, dubbed out slice of deep house with a true midwest flavour, while el sonido deepex takes things into even more sultry territory. there s also space for downtempo reflection on space of life, but also watch out for the deadly remix of the whole hood in my house- by cvo.
end to end, back to back solid gold soul & funk bombs are what s contained on this slab of wax! that s right, gwen s 1979 lp has lashings of dope drums, wriggly bass synths, brass and of course, that voice! absolutely stellar tracks on here - all this love that i m giving - famously sampled by cassius on their infamous smash feeling for you is actually the album opener! the whole album unfolds from this point and we re treated to the classy, string laden i can only think of you next. all in all this album has always been one of those rare lp s that has soul fans frothing at the mouth, traditionally a very tough one to track down and always commanding high prices on the collectors market. released on tk disco s cat offshoot label and produced by the equally legendary betty wright (!) this is one sure shot that you ll need on your shelf and on your turntable if you re into this kind of flavour!
