S.E.G. REMIXES (LARRY HEARD, MALCOLM MOORE, CHICAGO SKYWAY REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK23.04.18
d marc cantus 2017 lp the lodge was a high point for the ever prolific us producer, not to mention a jewel in altered moods many pronged crown. now the label are revisiting one of the album highlights, s.e.g, giving the punchy chicago house jam another pressing before handing the reins over to a strong cast of remixers. the one and only larry heard plunges -s.e.g- into gorgeous, mystical realms of deep house spirituality like only he can, while altered moods boss malcom moore injects a different kind of spaced out energy to the track. then chicago skyway finishes the package off with a distinctive version that reaches for a light and airy headspace while keeping the drums punchy and effective.
THE DUB I LOST EP2 (LARRY HEARD, ZEPHERIN SAINT & ORAL DEEP REMIX)

tribev11 features tracks by sai & ribatone, alex finkin/vanina and oral deep remixed by the legendary larry heard and zepherin saint and oral deep respectively.
alleviated records is proud to present another edition of the larry heard presents mr. white sessions. these 2 selections, produced and mixed by larry heard somehow both evolved into otherworldly future-house concepts as they took shape. first up, virtual emotion (main & dub versions) features mr. white vocals over an electro-funk flavored percolating deep-house track. then supernova (main & dub versions) features mr. white vocals taking us to a darker, almost tech-rocky mood off-world adventure. the two very different flavors should make this 12 one that can be played in many settings!! as always with alleviated records releases, created to be timeless so that you can enjoy it for many years to come. this special vinyl 12 will be another great addition to any collection! enjoy! and thanks for your continued support!!
2017 repress ,one of the best house tracks in the last 10 years, and for sure one of the few, if not the only one, that can make a guy cry! original, instrumental and jazz cafe mix all on 1 high quality remastered 12 inch. essential!
remastered for 2016! another classic by highpriest larry heard. three tracks that prove again the mans genius and unparalleled talent in squeezing true emotions and funk out of his machines and lift you into a state of euphoria. the a-side holds a long, midtempo 80s electrofunk groove with beautiful richly textures synth melodies. flip over for a slightly rawer fingers style workout with highly emotive strings and a perfect end of the night tune with a gorgeous piano solo showing heard s strong roots in jazz. music from a different stratosphere - a record to treasure!
UNIVERSE II (LARRY HEARD / THOMAS MELCHIOR REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK01.02.17

repress 2016 ...1 split release from the black market archives with tracks by larry heard and the it (with a main role for larry heard too). 2 amazing tracks which actually 20-25 years later still sounds more futuristic as many releases nowadays. spaced out jazzy keys on the mind blowing black oceans with trademark larry heard melodies. flip side takes things to the darker chicago jack territories with the great endless flight track by the it (also known for classic tracks such as donnie and gallimaufry gallery ). this is one of their overlooked and more obscure tracks! worthy re-issue on one of uks coolest house labels. tip!

36 hours in. the lights are flickering and the sweat is pouring out of you like the thoughts that you re trying to write down, to get down the words, to put down the message, to translate all the ideas that keep appearing in your head. ideas like uninvited guests that keep showing up and refusing to leave. somewhere though, there s a truth in there. you know it because you saw it. you know it because you felt it. because when you knew that even though there were ten million reasons why you should go to bed now, why you should go to bed straight away. that you should put these silly things down and stop trying to create and just get some sleep already. that you should stop trying to wrestle the ideas in your subconscious down to the ground so you can actually capture and express them to others. but you persist.
this must be one of the heaviest remix packages in a long time. a year after the release of tom tragos irisalbum we now have versions from no less than kink, linkwood and larry heard. all three hit the deep spots...err... tip!
