the nicetraxuk label welcomes another three artists to get involved for the soulfuricacid ep, bringing a range of straight up house gear to the table for the funkiest spinners to get busy with. leeds based producer j cub follows up appearances on eclectic avenue and saints & sonnets with the woozy, trumpet soaked grooves of mestizo. uk cheeky house mainstay lil mark steps up with another quintessential shuffler in the form of small syndrome, and then moodymanc adopts his dubble d alias for a smooth cruising trip through plush synths and warm bass.
nicetraxuk strides with confidence to its fourth release with some grade a producers on board to confirm the label s position as a trusted outpost for upfront club tackle. moodymanc is on fine form on -where s the story?- dropping an expressive set of drums in a crafty broken beat funk as submerged chords play out and an unnamed source waxes lyrical about stories in house tracks. lil mark meanwhile links up with jcub for -epic 40,- a seriously stripped down club workout that maximizes on finger clicking and moody bass in a flawless demonstration of restraint.
the first in a limited run from low motion recordings. we have two artists who need little introduction. lil mark from the early classic, mff camp and carolyn harding one of the greatest vocalists in the dance sector.
support from has been from the usual suspects: brett johnson, twirl, luke solomon, matthew styles, j.cub, mark farina, gerd janson, ryan shaw and justin harris.
leftroom continues its fine run of eps (recent outings have come from kate simko, sam russo, william djoko, matt tolfrey and others) with a first appearance on the label from lil mark. born mark currell, lil mark has been producing top-notch house since 2001 when he appeared on classic and music for freaks, and more than a decade later still puts most of his peers to shame. the two tracks he supplies here come with remixes from matt tolfrey and matthew styles
eclectic avenue welcomes the inimitable lil mark, one of the true stalwarts of the uk house scene & regular contributor to some of the finest imprints worldwide. here mark expertly shows his unique knack for genre-straddling. kicking off with pulling strings more familiar lil mark territory, with his trademark tight-as-hell percussion & firing bass sat below a freaked-out twisting riff. seriously, this bad-boy takes no prisoners....other than the ones on the dancefloor.... on the flipside we are treated to memoirs, a beautifully sumptous lo-slung roller, utilising a vox refrain over the top of a glorious rolling bass groove. like being comforted by a welcoming acid-bass-hug, this is truly something special. nestled inbetween marks original cuts is e.a.r. main-man j.cub, who offers up an alternate interpretation of memoirsl. taking the vox refrain & weaving it throughout the track like an instrument, j.cub nudges the tempo up slightly & adds a solid percussive backdrop & a reworked bass groove, creating a cut which is deep enough to warm the crowd but packs a solid punch at the same time
a serious bass rub and with some little additions as a clonky rhythm, sparse synth and a robotic voice it's more than enough to drive you up the wall. the freaks remix is more opulent, crammed with raw snare hits, clonky percussion sounds, quirky eccentric synth melodies and rubbery acid lines popping up everywhere: someone should invent a novelty dance to that
essential three-tracker. this one is big on boompty jack and chicago swing - isjazz is a bouncygreenskeepers-styled romp, while life a dream is the standout cut with low-slung bass, old-school beats and weird vocal bits. freak confusion is a trademark lil mark party wiggler, great stuff for the derrick carter and luke solomon fiends out there
heavy jackin ass-wigglers as us. rhythms cooked down and reduced to their pure funk- essence, nagging sounds frying your brain like acid, crazy vocal-cut ups sounding like those voices that swirl around in your head and those bopping basslines won t allow you to rest. finally lil mark (classic, mff) throws in his bleepy remix magic, so damage done_freak out!
viennese analog-wizards buffered multiple (also known for their electro-outlet microthol) deliver the followup to buffer 01 with three outstanding tracks of deep, mysterious and mesmerizing techno. mark 1.12. is the track that works well in the peaktime situation, while the b-side shows their extremely detailed production skillz and knowledge about the minimalistic but floating techno. besides their production skillz, the duo teams up for extended trippy vinyl-dj sets which demonstrate a level of knowledge in techno which is rare to find these days. efdemin is happy to welcome the two producers back on lirum larum.

farina and sneak heads will recognize the a side s >does not compute< after dropping it in literally every set they ve played in the last six months. miles maeda s rework is deep and twisted and definitely peak time material. b side features >jazzin< a sweet groover perfect for the deep house heads. lil mark reworks the track with a tougher approach: fat kicks, skippy hats and delayed horns round off the ep nicely
