nice price deal !!! firmly believing against starting a label just for the sake of having a label, cubera labelhead kyle geiger waited to have a specific vision and concept for it before doing so. after almost two years of creating, refining, and revisiting projects for cubera, kyle gei- ger (drumcode, perc trax, droid, & mb elektronics) has carefully crafted a series of productions that carry the melodic presence of the deeper techno sound, while still maintaining the teeth needed for peak hours of the night.
skeptical opens the exit records 2015 release schedule with a 4 track 12 inch ep. believe it or not, this is skepticals debut solo release on exit, with previous contributions consisting of his monster collaboration with dub phizix and strategy, the mighty marka, as well as individual tracks on the mosaic series 1 and 2.
the ep features the percussive roller and title track *imperial*, which has been taking dance floors deep into the jungle over the last few months in typical skeptical fashion. as usual with his tracks this is not laptop music. sub bass is essential to appreciate the full production qualities and the whole ep demonstrates his power to achieve the utmost with the very minimum.
pressing on translucent vinyl.
mooch recordings kicks off with the imperial street ep from quenum, the man behind cadenza and a back catalogue of hits across labels crosstown rebels, orac, soma, trapez, to name but a few. his his legendary set back in july cemented his place in the mooch hall of fame and also put him on the radar for the first ever release on the label. quenums hypnotic, groovers on this ep are just right in building up the night, riding through peak time and out the other end down at the afterparty. on remix duties we have invited tim xavier to weave his tech magic and add his signature harder, darker sound to this killer ep.
IMPERIAL EP (2X12 , INCLUDING FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD CODE)
2x12" Vinyl NL18.05.12
we figured it was time for some d&b again, we had a few tracks lying around for a while that we wanted to finish and put out and we had 2 collabs that went well together. we wanted to call it the tryhard ep, cause all the tracks were so full on. then nik & karol started on the artwork, and couldnt really come up with anything cool with that name, so we decided imperial was a better name. the artwork took about a week to make. we are very proud of this ep.
originally released in 1975 on day-wood records and pressed in very small numbers. the imperial wonders drop pure soul-perfection with mean ol miss treater. finding an original pressing of this single on the day-wood label is next to impossible and would set you back a few hundred dollars. tip!the sound of the single is extremely well produced. modern soul harmonies, wah-wah guitar and funky vibe. all behind drums that are in the pocket.family groove records proudly presents this incredible crossover soul 7in single, limited to 300 copies.

peripheral minimal is proud to announce the forthcoming album, aus den anti-imperialistischen tagebü,,,chern , by in namen des volkes. indv is the brainchild of hamburg resident matthias schuster (also of bal pare, das institut,geisterfahrer and others), and creates a more heavy-weight style of minimal synth in the spirit of d.a.f., or even early front 242. the tracks were taken directly off cassettes and reworked with added vocals, whilst maintaining the original 80s recording techniques of 4-track and purely analogue instrumentation, strictly no plug-ins or digitalism here! matthias has been actively producing complex synthetic sounds since the late 1970s, having released seminal albums and singles on respected labels such as, plastic frog, minimal wave and medical records. his passion for all things analogue seems to be irrepressible, devoting a considerable amount of time to myriad projects each with their own unique qualities and sonics. he musically switches from neue deutsche welle stylings, to minimal synth and proto-ebm with great dexterity and a rare continuing dedication. the album is presented in a luxurious digipak and limited to 300 copies. recorded between 1980 - 2015. artwork by kilgore trout.

coverti world can really be no other than danny wolfers aka legowelt of course. his first tape for new york haunted is a stone cold classic with heavy machinery, acidic lines and his typical haunting melodies. there is a melancholic, almost saw type feel on these tracks, which might be his best work to date. 8 cuts on a 40 minute tape by the master of wavvy techno!
i walked by night is a new label created with the ethos that comes from the foundations of any good resident dj, that of good selection. label boss krysko, who has held residencies for over 16 years, brings his experience to his new label. the debut release comes from tristan grace, a uk based artist (aliases - oe & prime time crew). raised propping up record store counters on the south coast since his early teens, now lives pretty isolated from current club culture. nothing beats being in the storm of a dance floor, but being able to step away from the pull and draws of the scene allows him to diarise his occupational exposure through trax. inspiration from the motor city and acid sound lies at the heart of what he does. influenced by rolling green hills, and surrounded by the analog soul of his machines - he has an addiction to vintage machines of asian origin, valves, and its fair to say, he lives his life in 16 step sequence. the furse ep moves across the width of his sound, and this being his debut release on i walked by night, there will be many more to come.
