multi-platinum artist awolnation announced the release of their third studio album, here come the runts, on february 2, 2018. bruno spent 2016 crafting the album in his home studio nestled in the coastal mountain range separating the pacific ocean and the suburbs of los angeles where he grew up. the secluded location is reflected throughout the album. “the record definitely has a feel to it that seems parallel to the vibe of this mountain and the land,” bruno notes. “it’s like a non-gmo record. there’s no fake shit on there, none of the vocals are tuned. it’s all real playing.”
“volna” is an uncompromising and unadulterated approach to techno. the ominous “olga” intertwines desolate synthpads with a raw acid sound while the metallic abrasiveness of “drawner” constitutes a glowing tribute to industrial music. “signal” is a more aerial iteration of infinite fields’ techno with its chimerical melodies.
lnas third release comes from the godfather of the underground all the way from brookyln, new york: namely the legendary jovonn. first tune >a definition of a track< makes use of driving beats combined with ethereal and jazz-like melodies that work together to create a hypnotic atmosphere. second track >space atmosphere< has a more infectious styling, with an ever-progressive melody against a firm groove that grabs the listener and the dance floor. also featuring remixes from the much revered two armadillos, giles smith of secretsundaze and martin dawson (king roc) have turned out a modern classic to nail any peak time dance floor. the second remix comes from the newly formed mankind project. expect more from them this year with two other eps in the pipeline. this ep is something rather special!

having forged a keen army of converts to their late night audio nights & establishing a reputation as one of londons best underground parties, it was only a matter of time before they started their own label to release the music they & their party people love to dance to. expect the finest in deep electronic house, balearic boogie and italo flavours, all expertly mastered onto luxurious vinyl with slick graphic artwork. the first artist signed and to be released on the label is french/u.s producer kevin lemonnier recording under the name of das volt. this man uses no plug-ins and a resolutely old skool production philosophy. utilising all analogue signal paths through outboard and vintage gear. his music is justifiably compared to the luxuriously warm and pared down output of metro area, capturing that legendary period between disco & proto house by being a stickler for authenticity. gestures is a modern take on the electro boogie sound, pizzicato strings, silky rhodes and fat bass all blended to create a dance floor gem. fantasy is a modern italo disco classic, with epic pianos setting the mood over a driving trouser flapping bass line. remixes come courtesy of italian outfit telespazio s fabrizio mammarella - who does his deep electro funk thing with immediate dance floor effect, and toby tobias of rekids and late night audio fame, who completes the package with a killer balearic boogie interpretation
afterr the big success of the one, stereofunk presents his 2nd ep funkelnagelneu on bondage music. the two original tracks funkelnagelneu and my ling are excellent floorfiller, with catchy melodies and breaks. additional a fantastic nhar (meerestief) rework of funkelnagelneu and extremly fresh, pressing remix of my ling form pornbugs+deutschmann (bondage-music)
long time friend of the label, neue grafik, steps forth with his most fully realised offering to date. this record has been a long time coming, born out of a encounter in paris back in 2016. this meeting of minds led to a blossoming friendship between fred ( neue grafik) and bradley ( rs intl) which has taken them across 3 continents, countless dance-floors and finally crystallised onto this 12-. the record itself takes cues from the broken-beat sound of london while paying homage to the parisian house dance scene. largely sample based, but also employing much more live instrumentation than ever before, neue grafik s music is informed by movement and in turn offers so much for dancers to respond to.
the eight record of the ukrainian label muscut bursts into consciousness like a psychedelic van which is flying at all pairs, leaving behind a sultry cloud. meet the chillera - new girl-band from odessa. three young witches mixed together the berriesof surf rock, dub-rhythms ripened on the southern soil and greens of funky ornaments. it sounds juicy, naturalistic, relaxed and, most importantly, fresh.
the coombes debut ep is an astonishingly graceful and multifaceted creature that effortlessly synthesizes psych rock, minimal folk and electronica.the coombe began as a soundtrack collaboration between karen sharkey and samuel de la rosa (led er est) for some animated short films karen was producing while living in queens, ny. after their move to texas in 2012, further experimenting resulted in longer songs, noise suites, and field recordings that later would represent the essence of this ep. born and in part recorded in the desert, the coombe is comprised of six mesmerizing gems that provide a rarefied glimpse into a touching and liquid soundscape. these are songs for the enamored.
limited edition of 300 copies with artwork by giandomenico carpentieri. strongly recommended to fans of five or six, flaming tunes, led er est.
