support from sinden, 2562, toddla t, poirier,baobinga, murderbot, roska, starkey, bok bok, dub boy.... the newly formed steak house records bring some much-needed carnival fire for these winter months, their sights firmly on the trinidad carnival season. label owners atki2 and hanuman take the helm on this release, enlisting the vocal talents of mc zulu on the ep?s standout lead track ?hyped up?. the party continues on the flip, with the psychedelic funky of ?haarlem drift? and the arabic folky heater ?tigris riddim?, already a firm favourite with toddla t. mashing up global riddims and bass heavy genre bending ruffness, they incorporate sounds from bassline to bashment, grime to dubstep to funky to soca and back again
nice price deal !!! jazz monkey consists of two chicago natives and avid house junkies, jay nice and jerome o. they come together to bring you their first house single. we start with soul power produced by jay nice, here he provides a funky bass groove with hard hitting drums and a soulful guitar, which is followed with enigmas down tempo track with laid back keys, powerful congas, and solid hitting kick drums. jacks groove produce by jerome o., is a party anthem that will get the crowd in a frenzy with hype bass drums, congas, crisp snares, and great vocals. train of thought is a definite throwback track that reminds you of a acid house record from the eighties but with serious drums and modern progamming. jazz monkeys mission strives on providing the best in house, disco, electronica, and afro beat to all who seek good music.
bout time! julian duron and michael sherburn are longtime friends and partners in crime, the two marinate, stew, malt in the same spaces as jacques and nik—namely brooklyn s now legendary bossa nova civic club. call this kick-off ep a statement of purpose, proof of concept, an illustration of how lph and e.b. gel perfectly. the five tracks contained on myrtle music, named such in celebration of the myrtle avenue jmz and l train stops in bushwick, are easy, chilled-out house jams built on stacks of pads from the future and breaks from the past. weird, ethereal tuneage that feels like the score to a walk through empty allies in a blade runner world. (or, for the anime wonks out there, maybe the tokyo of patlabor.)

having originally surfaced on creme organization back in 2002, luke eargoggle and ronnie johansson s monkeyshop project is an intermittent treat that offers the best of warm synth-led electronic disco. on their second outing for ali renault s vivod label (after the excellent escape from the mental zoo ep in 2014) the pair bring yet more of that addictive, utopian dance magic on this new record. -island of love- is indeed a romantic club burner with smatterings of vintage synth pop in its bones, while -heartbreak- takes a more overtly italo direction and sounds just as strong with it. obergman then takes -island of love- to task with a respectful remix that shines a few different synth lines and beat patterns through the same fuzzy prism.

here on their self titled 12 inch, monkeyrobot deliver four diverse tracks that showcase their skills behind the boards, the keys, with a keen ear for the dancefloor. kicking things off, >brick stomach< is a synth-heavy four-to-the-floor 120 bpm joint that comes off like a floating points visit back in time to 1980s detroit with its rolling snares, arpeggiating synth bassline and cloudy pads. next up, >northern light< filters shimmering space disco vibes through big, thumping instrumental hip-hop drums and moody analog bass. on the flip, >rose gris< takes things in a funkier direction at 100bpm with its syncopated drums, irresistible lead, squelching bassline and all manner of synthesizer explorations. rounding off the ep is >last days<, which still manages to inject a funky 80s analog sound into its melancholy downtempo vibes.
society of silence is proud to present their very first lp! society of silence combines the forces of two great parisian artists and friends, benoît legrain or bny, and nicolas villebrun ? known as tite and for his production assistance with the electronic pop-rock group, poni hoax. signifying monkey plays around with its words just as much as its structure, while beat reading detroit takes us through a nostalgic journey into the collective subconscious of techno. the confluence of dark and euphoric energies conveyed here by s.o.s. capture the dangerous and thrill-seeking memories going to old-school raves and after-hours parties. deep and raw beginning to end..

memory ist nicht unbedingt eine abkehr von lazer swords frühen stücken, aber diejenigen, die peitschende hip hop-beats und gecuttete vibes erwarten, werden überrascht sein: antaeus roy (aka lando kal, neuberliner) und bryant rutledge (aka low limit, san francisco) haben sich zurückgenommen, aber gleichzeitig ihre soundpalette erweitert. sie präsentieren eine schlankere, sexiere, cluborientiertere version von lazer sword, die auf 80er electro, detroit techno und verschiedene uk futurism-einflüsse zurückgreift. die palette reicht von klassischem techno, über einflüsse von juke und footwork, infiziös-mutiertem 80er freestyle bis zu gastproduzent jimmy edgar mit seinen berühmt-berüchtigten roboter-sex-vibes.
from the estrela archives of exactly that period comes the original, which was crafted by portuguese calapez at the time, as well as the newly edited pyjamas remix. calapez builds the theme monkeymonkey on top of a playful piano roll and swinging beats – simple and pure. with a wink the pyjamas remix carries that approach and the minimalist melody on, while adding a nice portion of acid. but the absolute highlight of this release, as already alluded in the incoming quote is definitively the more than cutting edge house remix of sacco vanzetti duo. funk, power, tempo and lightness: its got the ground formula to spin itself into the perpetual hunting grounds of the absolute house purist.

this project is a showcase of ians most recent club tracks and all appear in there original mixes. crank this, is a seriously heavy club tune. budapest, has a middle eastern vibes (hence the title) and has wobbly, wonky bass as well as a distinct break beat kick drum pattern. finally the much talked about everything & nothing, the title track of this ep sees ian going down a melodic & uplifting pryda influenced route.
the debut release from monkeybeats still reverberates, and number two is equally as deadly. the 1 extra anthem made even wonkier, also features ian round in the house- a ridiculously large record with heavy support from the radio 1 xtra crew
a classic bit of space disco from the french scene of the 70s. four long tracks that are all pretty darn moogy, and pretty darn great! the work here would fit nicely with some of the best keyboard heavy club of the us scene at the time! not exactly like some of the work on p&p, or the grooves of el coco over at avi - but not that dissimilar either, and often put together with a spare, simple approach thats a welcome contrast from overblown disco of the time! most numbers build up from a funky bassline and beats - adding in the keyboards with great relish, and really letting them jam and get crazy over the top. theres certainly a bit of cosmic fusion going on here too
