2019 repress incoming! another genius production. its impossible to overestimate how enormous this record is - nr 1 dj buzz chart uk, nr 1 muzik weekend vinyl charts and heavy plays by a lot of key djs.
the sandy beaches of new south wales, australia, give way to dusty beats of aussie producer shinji in this funky seven inch single on cold busted. taken from his forthcoming album in colour (coming in april 2018), this single features two retro-tastic tracks that will send the beatheads swinging across the floor. “second wind” opens up with heavy rhodes piano chords accompanied by a crucial rhythm and streetwise horns. evoking the soundtrack to a tv detective series from the ‘70s, the cut unloads serious action in a 45-slinger’s dj set. flip the record for “grand mash,” which begins in the hip hop zone before soundtracking a movie scene of the pimp-mobile once again in pursuit. groovy horns, tough beats, and a way-cool-for-school spoken interlude move this one to the top of the crate-digging charts. shinji strongly delivers the goods, queuing things up nicely for his sure-to-be essential long-player.
for the second part of his -connection lost- series massimiliano pagliara teaches a lesson in how to translate disco music in a modern language of sound. without further ado -trying to hide but then i cried- comes across as pure dance floor material.
in the words of conor thomas:
“this mix is a tribute to a series of free parties/raves held in manchester over ten years ago. records that were played there or that i used to cane during that era. using the benefit of hindsight, this is a snapshot or perspective of the era after the 90’s “madchester” and “sulphuric soul” thing. of course there were other things happening, lots of techno/electro/breakcore/electronica and early dubstep, but for me, this was the sound of cracked warehouses and abandoned mental hospitals when i moved to manchester in 2002, and it remained like that until dubstep really took a grip after 2007.”

label head setaoc mass returns to his own fledgling sk_eleven imprint with the much-anticipated second chapter ep. true to form, the release deals in bleeps and melodic sci-fi indebted elements, yet with a harder impact and a sense of urgency calibrated for the main room floor. b-side cut thunder bay ventures into new territory for the artist, diffusing coarse, broken rhythms over ominous call and response synth riffs.
william has been an intriguing presence in sydneys music scene for over ten years, performing and releasing under several monikers including most recently, t.morimoto. as a producer and teacher he has inspired the work of artists such as seekae, cliques and cassius select. his ep annum contra is a diverse collection of percussive approaches and rhythmic studies that sees william moving in a dance floor friendly direction - whilst maintaining the idiosyncratic style he is known for. annum contra also features a handful of guests including lamtech9 and kid kairo
spanish techno purveyors exium make their debut on detroit underground with a smashing ep of thunderous, mind-altering techno. from the restrained beginning of true force, you might not know you are in for shock therapy, but midway through the a1 cut, the intent becomes clear.
we are very proud to present a doubtingthomas vinyl release on metroline limited! capharnauem is a very trippy affair across 3 tracks, 2 originals from aurelien and a remix from the uber talented romanian producer from arpiar fame, cristi cons. off the grid, the opener, stays within the grid until 3/4 of its lenght. a tight kick leads the way with the help of a pulsating bass and some lush pads in typical doubtingthomas style. the off moment happens after the mid way point when the free jazz element comes in and shuffles the groove off the grid!
after being returned from his abduction by aliens from the hidden planet nibiru, dj overdose was given an alien synthesizer the haex-hrll as a thank you for all the cerebral research the aliens did on him. on returning back to earth all dj overdose had to do was finish the 6 tracks the aliens had started to work on, which became this ep. straight forward techno hop electro funk without any fancy-pants pretentious hooha. its like a black and white movie which makes you think why the hell is there colors anyway?! after completion, the only record label he could imagine being fit for such rawness would be viewlexx... and so here it is.
four youths are exploring unused buildings in a warehouse district when they stumble upon a lone wire running between the buildings. they follow along as it snakes between walls and under gates until they find it connected to a set of speakers.

two original tracks performaed by damaskin. mental and ambient techno, with soft bassline and dark atmosphere, this is the sound of damaskin, deep and weakness at the same time. on the other side a perfect techno remix of cassegrain duo, 7 minutes of a killer-dark-dancefloor-oriented track. limited to 200 copies world wide.

darf man ellen allien und thomas muller zum neuen dreamteam des techhouse ernennen? bei aller bescheidenheit - mit ihrer aktuellen kollaboration und der daraus entstandenen 12 inch free nation haben die beiden langjährigen label-kollegen vier echte knaller-tracks abgeliefert.
the a1, named after the release title, is a summer techno drive, or a ride through a hot landscape in central america, as the notes of marimba suggest. the subtle but crackling low toms reverb dictates the driving tempo, while the chasing hats warn of a night which is likely to be dirty and sweaty. ready 2 glow opens with an enlightening synth note softly spreading through the air. its the after-hour call, the quietness before a new storm, which is about to boost and bring to surface the spastic contradictions of the drug-based soul liberating after-hour scene. corners goes funk, the quirky and rugged bass line lays at the core of the groove. above, we hear a multitude of spooky sounds and samples ranging from flying saucer sonic surges to playful stabs and bongo madness. the obsessive vocal echo, manipulated according to the abuse of ifferent drugs, is a clear indication of that. alza pure quanto vuoi is almost taken as it was firstly conceived during a jamming session. its twisted, swinging, it breaks the scheme of groove flowing as the tempo suddenly escapes to a faster pitch, jacked out
