delsins reissue arm once again looks to the revered back catalogue of lost trax for a second 12 that picks out the best of the anonymous collectives work. the ep features five cuts taken from two highly sought after eps released on tabernacle records in 2011 and 2012. the eye opens things up with punchy drum programming and the sort of sci-fi effects and synths that immediately take you to a future intergalactic world. its a weighty but emotional opener, while pulp is more twisted and urgent, with warped synth sounds and busy, bristling drums and perc all building pressure throughout. the forest resets the mood with mystic synths and mysterious atmospheres that mix ambient beauty with suggestive skeletal beats. b01 then canes through the cosmos on a detroit electro tip with slithers of synth, swollen pads and crisp hits and dominion rounds things out in hurried fashion. the restless electro drums pound away as prickly snares and cymbals, blurts of machine noise and sweeping pads all wrestle for attention and keep you on your toes. this is high octane electro and techno designed with metallic precision but oozing plenty of human feelings.
the delsin re-issue arm turns its attention to lost trax. this ep features four cuts taken from two different eps, the saturnian system and lost trax 2 from 2006 and 2010 respectively. saturnian system opens the ep with some acid laced electro slickness. fluttering snares and spacey synths carry it away into the cosmos, then the sequel gets much busier. scurrying lines dart about in manic but funky fashion, with serene pads off setting the high energy drums. self destruct sequence then drops into an urgent, slippery electronic groove riddled with squelchy sounds and rubbery bass all perfectly orchestrated. last of all, birth is a nimble electronic house cut with plaintive synths and kinetic drums that wiggle and wriggling through the night sky. this is an ep stuffed with timeless sounds and is another essential reissue from delsin.
lost trax embody the idea of underground techno. the shadowy group, members unknown, began their music careers over 20 years ago. output may be low, but quality is high, the style being no compromise techno brilliance. and thats whats on show here. kick drums and squirming acid bars are at the core of faith, a track where soaring strings shift and reshape. the chiselled claps and barbed bass of flatliner follows, taking its cue from the heyday of detroit. a watery world of analogue abstraction greets the listener on the flip, lost being an atmospheric journey into to the squelching swamps of the tb303. sniping beats introduce the lush tones of renderer. blurring the lines of electro and techno the track is an elegant end to an ep of deep and dense layers.
always hard at work unearthing interesting new projects or forgotten old gems, opilec music is now serving up a retrospective compilation of highly esteemed chicago producer jordan fields best work from 1986 - 1991. field has been active now for some thirty years (on labels like rush hour, headphoniq and mo wax) but his best work was arguably done in his first decade or so. now opilec boss i-robots has been given access to a collection of field s early recordings and has selected, compiled & conceived this project himself. it will be presented as a full-length album but will also arrive in a few select ep parts, with this being the first one
much awaited return to lost trax! scsi-av has been a well respected electro and techno label since it was born in september 2008. almost 12 years later and after a short break scsi is back with a classy detroit techno record which has been sat in the vaults for quite some time waiting patiently to be released. as the second part of the lost trax series. expect deep bass, booming 808 kicks and carl craig-esque sounding strings. the production on both sides of this record is amazing showing the digital generation that analogue kit still sounds supreme. the lost trax series is a project for producers who have inspired the label to record something special and release anonymously as we dont believe its necessary to sell music on the strength of a specific artists reputation.
hidden away on a dat tape since 1997, 8 raw cuts from house legend nail are now being released as a limited pressing, individually numbered double pack vinyl. shabby doll records co-founder matt swift, who managed nail throughout the nineties, and along with charles webster ran remote records, found the dat in a box of tapes at his house when looking for something entirely unrelated. result. only one of the trax, brothers & sisters had previously ever seen the light of day. an edited version was released in 1998 on matt and charles s remote record label. shb012 will hold the full unedited version of brothers & sisters, along with all 7 other trax from the dat, exactly as they were left in 97...
back in august 2017, jerome derradji received a call by one of chicagos most renowned record dealer. it went like this: hey jerome, ive got all these reel to reel tapes of chicago house stuff. you want to take a look? less than 24 hours later, more than 160 reels were purchased and safely hauled back to the still music office and jerome got to work. in fact, these reels - that were lost for more than 20 years - contain some incredible stuff that well be releasing in the years to come but right now its time to jack!
conceived along the space of a few years and part of a big collection of unfinished experiments stored on cassette tapes, this eight tracks selection well represents fred ventura s late 80s and early 90s infatuation with chicago house, detroit techno, early warp records and even a secret passion for ebm. using a basic set up made of roland juno 106, roland jx-8p, oberheim dx, roland tr909 and an akai sampler, these tracks were never officially mixed and meant to be released until today. minimal and hypnotic, dry and direct, both sides of the record show an instinctive approach to rhythms and basslines, typical of those days where computer didn t have a predominant role in the creative process.
trax research returns with an action-packed lp of 8 raw jack, deep dubs and tracky grooves from chicagos finest boo williams, jordan fields, marcus mixx and kstarke along with special guest stars giles dickerson, nastyboy, steve frisco and jeremy williams!

chicago house legend mystic bill joins crimes of the future with two straight up jacking house tracks with bonus instrumental and a mind bending remix by scott fraser. bill torres needs little introduction to those fans of the original chicago movement in the late 1980 s and 1990 s, he produced a string of 12inches for the likes of trax and relief records whilst playing and holding down dj residences in some of the citties best loved venues. after remixing scott fraser s no word of truth release last year on his dx recordings label his first full solo release on crimes of the future has arrived.the a cut frequency 9 is a rolling jacker with rattling percussion and dark synth stabs to dement the warehouse dancefloor and very much in the line of bills trademark style. a2 sees fraser return the remix favour delivering a massive floor bumping remix adding all new drums, 303 and huge bassline giving a nod to the classic sound of those sex trax/ power music 12s from the 1990 s with his 11 minute mind control remix. the frequency cannot be controlled! side b has both the original and a bonus intrumental of the ship is sinking, a dark slice of jacking house complete with real tension and total mastery of the sampler for those able to spot it.
another example of marshall jefferson s unassailable genius in the late 80 s, as he moved effortlessly from raw jackin gear through to redemptive vocals. nowhere near as famous as its predecessor -7 ways- on dance mania but arguably better. re mastered for 2016 and re issued in conjunction with trax.
archie hamilton, known from releaes & remixes on memoria, ruis, fasten and karton music group to name a few, comes here with his debut on nima gorjis vinyl only label ng trax ! 180 gr vinyl only, shrinked, antistatic innersleeve
currently causing quite a stir on the underground, the jerome hill remix of marshall jeffersons s trax classic lost in the groove is a complete re-interpretation, solid jacking (hard) house music using the original vocal that s cut loud onto the vinyl and worms inside your head and has been doing serious damage in the clubs and festivals last year. now with all licensing and red tape cleared away, it s set for release. dancer boom boom is actually a collaboration between acid legend adonis and sidney winters, with a mix down by house legend frankie knuckles. this sat on the b side of am a dog on trax records and is rare & obscure to say the least, but once the needle touches the groove you know it s a killer. massive kick drums and mysterious organ scales, this one is a mad mad tune ! produced in 1987 (and sounding like nothing else from that year) it s been given a very slight and very respectful re-arrangement by jerome hill, remastered and cut super loud. strictly limited and if the previous titles on the label are anything to go by, this one will sell out equally quick.

neurotraxx deluxe, the label run by deep house buzz name aki bergen, releases a hot new track from uk super dj filthy rich. as a talented producer/dj filthy richs innovative sound has made him undeniably one of the countrys finest djs today. a promising figure looming out from the crowd, rich is the complete package. effortlessly leaving his contemporaries behind, he leaps and bounds into a league of his own laughing to himself as he does it. this is because rich knows the secret to getting this far is playing music that he loves, for people to dance to. this new single is more on the deeper side of electronic music but still built to do damage on the dance floor. with mixes from dzeta & basile (who have had tracks & remixes on 1trax, lower east and loco records) and paolo mojo (noir music, cr2, greatstuff, oosh) this is a seriously hard hitting package. with support coming from all the usual a-list and international djs (full list of dj support being released soon) this, as we have come to expect from neurotraxx and filthy rich alike, is going to be an essential record for many djs.

this release was born of a cross country trip with an 808 drum machine by thomas ragsdale aka winter son, alongside jozef k, resident of famed manchester and ibiza clubnight sankey, as they join perseus traxx to hammer electricity out of machines. with itʼ,,,s rim shots and claps and other transistor rhythms reverberating across vast distances of space, side a is stripped back and deep from the outset, pushing forward as scattered tones, arpeggiations and disjointed voices leave their trails vanishing from perception. side b tightens up from the previous reverbs and throws acid into the mix, as the two join perseus traxx and the sound becomes more raw and urgent as the three of them jam on their chosen machines.

cyber dance records are back on the attack with a fresh release from the legendary perseus traxx aka nigel rogers, a 4-track ep entitled after recent scientific developments an apparent horizon . its a firmly machine-based and totally jam-packed affair reflecting diverse sounds from the uk s own rich history of electronic dance music, with elements from the classic warp -deep space sound- prominent as much as the more usual 303-jacking acid house grooves in the vein of baby ford or bam bam. lost dreams opens the record with a floaty dream-like hipnosis from the depths of space and sets the tone in magnificent style, followed up on side a with the irresistible roll of reverse the trend that takes the groove harder, further and deeperstraight off to the beyond. dark strings reminiscent of old lfo, b-12 or autechre vinyls from the early 90s propel us into side b on darkness stalks , and then we re transported onto the concluding track on the ep, distances , an epic closer that opens with beautiful reverbed claps and acid squelches before diving into an inky black void of timeless space-travelling and slow-building tension that could surely echo hauntingly around any m25 rave in the depths of a late 1980s night.
