laura jones is a rare specimen, a producer who puts her heart and soul into every production. the few key releases she has made for crosstown rebels, visionquest and leftroom have become instant anthems and shot her into stardom. embrace sees a return to leftroom and to form for laura with new exploration into darker techno underworlds with think over and imagination unreal, illustrating the complexity and breadth of jones as a producer.
sweet sweet vocal chicago-house pureness by tevo howard featuring rick poppa howard on vocals, reminding of the early beautiful granville days. a highly emotional and intimate track which the label is honoured to release. labelboss paul du lac on remix duties delivers two stripped-to-the-bone jackin trax for devastating club abuse, one vocal version, one instrumental version.
dark funk for dirty minds! three new and raw box tracks by paul du lac (bio rhythm), who seems to be pushing his minimalistic jackin sound palette even further. we have the fierce and autistic-tantristic dirtyness of tantra master, the dance mania flavoured funk of childs play, and the deep strings of the bassline-driven spaces below, a classic chicago-inspired piece of work that seems to come from deep within.punchy and excellent dj tools.lo-fidelity, hi-energy.
hot release alert by our boy paul du lac who is a long time close friend of the frustrated family, colleague at the clone office and an old dj buddy of frustrated funk label boss klen (when they played the nighttown basement in the early 90s). so it s a bit of a special thing for us having him aboard. this ep shows pauls signature minimalistic approach on chicago style house. typical jacking 707s and 808s combined with minimal synth pulses. qom and access are pure jackin bliss for the floor while moodswings goes deeper with layers of warm pads and spaced out stings. the title track comes with a stripped beats version from tevo howard, for those who like to mix things up.. highly recommended!!
paul du lac with his follow up on his limited clone x release. 3 tracks that are a mixture of the good old dj international days, joey lewis and k-alexi shelby and a little bit of that dutch unit moebius sound. solid jacking house tracks!

WER HAT DAS GRAS WEGGERAUCHT (LTD SIGNED GREEN 2X12 LP)
coloured 2x12" Vinyl lp D03.02.17
limitiertes & handsigniertes grasgrünes doppel-vinyl im kklappcover.
kurze frage: wer hat eigentlich das gras weggeraucht? na, wer wohl. die antwort geht einem auch 15 jahre nach „der neger (in mir)“ noch wie von selbst über die lippen: es war natürlich kein anderer als b-tight. damals wie heute.
denn der berliner widmet sein neues album einem thema, zu dem er viel zu sagen hat. mit dem kiffen kennt er sich eben aus. denn: „ich habe alle höhen und tiefen erlebt.“ grund genug, diese auf „wer hat das gras weggeraucht?“ auszuloten.
what s in the du name? 030303 records asked three of their favourite prod ucers with matching names to du an ep together: ann harbour s d marc cantu and mark du mosh & paul du lac, both from the dutch harbour city rotterdam. the result is dynamite! a1-mine motion- is a monsterous jacker in the rawest form how only mr cantu can du! on the b side mark du mosh takes off with a flight to -bermuda- with a hot & steamy roaring electronic beast sitting on the wing of the plane and causing some heavy turbulence. fortunatly du mosh keeps us flying high with some deep emotional synths. last but not least paul du lac delivers a dark psychedelic techtool called -beta rhythm-. a track that creeps under your skin as a virus, causing some serious haziness from noding your head. be aware that this record will appear on vinyl only!

a tough tune from vocalist paul fox who has carved out a steady stream of new roots reggae classics over the last two decades. boasting an instantly-recognisable, unique and distinctive vocal style, here he teams up with top uk roots reggae label partial on a tough steppers rhythm topped off with some tasteful guitar licks.
sonar kollektivs inclination towards dubbed out pop/dance music is definitely no secret (see fat freddys drop or eva be). but with this brand new 7inch the berlin label hits the nail on the head. chicago-born jeremy sole is one of the program selectors at renowed la radio station kcrw and hosts a weekly party in santa monica where he blends afrobeat, funk, reggae, latin, brazilian and everything else under the sun!
in heavens hail, fathers fog, sons storm, spirits sun at posted stance, standing post in holy blazer, stained jeans, woeful boater amongst the crows, in the image of man anybody better than nobodyaubery telemachus, son of odysseus and penelope, whose name in greek means far from battle, which perhaps reflects his peaceful nature and hermitic lifestyle.

jazzman records releases the third volume of its jukebox mambo compilation series, artfully selected by dj liam large. a journey through the popular american music of the 1950s influenced by exotic rumba and afro-latin seasoned rhythm and blues. featuring rarities and unearthed gems from percy mayfield, roy gaines, chuz alfred, monogram caribbean orchestra, and many more. the twenty-four track compilation comes complete with in-depth track notes and photographs, as well as a deluxe double vinyl edition with gatefold sleeve, and a super limited edition vintage style 6 x 10inch book set with unique artwork and four exclusive bonus tracks
following last year’s much-acclaimed solo album “mondo alterado” (hippie dance 08), original pachanga boy and hippie dance mentor rebolledo returns to the limelight with the jam-packed mondo re-alterado (hippie dance 10), tapping into his vast and varied network of friends and fellow soundsmiths. artists such as superpitcher, dj tennis, maceo plex, red axes, fango or fantastic twins deliver stunning takes on rebolledos’ unique signature sound, creating a full suite of exclusive remixes, cover versions and reinterpretations.
from the super-energetic club rumblings of maceo plex’s discotico plexico to dj tennis’ dreamy pimiento drive version of a numb gas to the future or fantastic twins’ party bomb fantastic pow pow, the journey through mondo re-alterado is full of twists and turns – a world where an epic, cinematic soundscape such as superpicher’s rainboy super space sits comfortably alongside the claustrophobic, punishing banger that fango sculpted from stand-out cut “pow pow”.
meanwhile, red axes turn the casual narrative of “life is strange, life is hard, life is great” into a bouncing workout – a great companion piece to want, danny daze and shokh’s propulsive, jagged dub version of “fears come true”. other highlights include jörg burger aka the black frame with the lush black rainbow woman, paulor’s country rock extravaganza discotico desertico and not one, but two excellent contributions from former italians do it better honcho mike simonetti. it’s a magical, surprising ride that finds beauty in contrasts – while staying tuned to rebolledo’s spirit of adventure and powerful sense of style.
das coveralbum “radiodread” von den easy star all-stars erschien ursprünglich 2006 als nachfolger ihres kultalbums “dub side of the moon” von 2003. für “radiodread” diente radioheads album-klassiker “ok computer” als inspiration, und so wurde aus dem masterpiece des modernen rock ein energiegeladener und trippiger ausflug in die welt des dub & reggae. eine imposante liste namhafter gäste machte bei diesem spaß mit, darunter toots & the maytals, horace andy, morgan heritage, sugar minott, frankie paul, citizen cope oder israel vibration. nun erscheint das album in einer neuen edition mit 15 tracks, inklusive “high and dry” featuring morgan heritage, auch als limitiertes, goldfarbiges doppelvinyl im klappcover.
the follow up to the hugely successful 2003 release dub side of the moon (a reggae tribute to pink floyds dark side of the moon). a full-on reggae treatment of radioheads ok computer. an ambitious project two years in the making, radiodread features an impressive array of reggae stars supplying vocals to the easy star all-stars backing tracks.
