brooklyn s son of sound joins hometown label razor-n-tape with the dusty files ep, a 4-tracker that embodies the gritty and driving sound of the borough. the a-side kicks off with your voodo s broken, a track that builds to mid-tempo looped perfection even before the floor-shaking bass drops, followed by the beguiling synth patterns and efficient yet driving drums of no bullets left. on the flip side, nude jerzee eschews the bridges and tunnels and takes us straight to nj by way of outer space, and then what do you feel floats us gently back to earth on a cloud of strings, electric pianos and a chugging disco beat

KUMO NO MUKO: A JOURNEY INTO 80S JAPANS AMBIENT AND SYNTH POP SOUND (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl UKPre sale
since so many european labels have been reissuing lost and obscure 1980s japanese ambient albums of late, it was probably inevitable that at least one label would put together a compilation paying tribute to the sound. it turns out that jazzy couscous has won the race with kumo no moko, a superb double album that does a terrific job in putting japan s 80s ambient scene in context. as you d expect, the majority of the tracks feature either dreamy electronic sounds or a mixture of acoustic and electronic instrumentation, with nods to jazz coming thick and fast. there are naturally a couple of fairly well-known names on show, but for the most part the compilers have done a terrific job in highlight lesser-known tracks from unsung heroes.
2019 repress incoming! damage, dusty and mahdi are back now with their classical vocals and beats. ancient fruits that have today fully ripened now render a rich, smooth and noble new album fruit of the past!
the 1990 s was an incredible decade for techno - especially if you bought the releases being pressed and then shipped globally on a weekly basis out of birmingham in the uk.
simple elements -9.2%- originally came out on ideal trax in 1997 and over the years has become a holy grail among underground dj s and record collectors.
nicky b, the artist behind the simple elements moniker and resident dj from long running techno mecca, the house of god, has decided to re:release the original double pack on his new label, prisoner of sound records.
this double pack is a collection of the first tracks nicky ever wrote and is an insightful glimpse into the mind of an artist drawing upon a pool of influences, taking in jazz, funk, soul, electro, chicago house and detroit techno - you can listen to the influences at work throughout the six tracks, transporting your senses off world, into the deep realms and forgotten worlds of a vintage future.
piff records continues to unravel its catalogue by calling on an artist slightly closer to home. cardiff-based harrison bdp adds to his already prolific discography with an ep that spans from mellow dub techno vibrations, all the way up to wide-open, rave-driven acid riffs.
harrison’s a-side revels in a deep pool of soft bubbling synth chords, moulded to the backdrop of tight rolling drum work and occasionally teasing the wider, heavier energies to be found on the flip.
the b side ripples with ricocheting, delay-laden soundscapes, rock-solid drums lines, and nostalgic lead synth lines that make you glad that you’ve caught on to this talented producer early on in his promising career.
the people in fog are back on sov! as smooth sky blue colour cat can represent, this ep has a smoother beat than the artists usual style. if you remember their previous ep with a darker colour, now the punching kick and identical house bass are gone and this ep is true showing off the producer s ability as a musician who can adapt to any kind of diversity. the first track last song has deep bass and atmospheric sounds, like a typical romanian loop, but after the long trippy beat when the piano sounds kick in, the atmosphere changes and brings back the emotion. the second track get funky is also truly hybrid version of house, while the combination of funky vocals and the endless hi-hat and shaker keep the groove tight and the deep down pad sounds mixed smoothly with the forest of beat make for a truly a unique character. the last track alright is a very joyful one, even though it uses a typical funky house vocal sample. its unique way of playing percussion and vocal keep the groove totally all-right
2017 re issue , groundbreaking, chart topping legends depeche mode release their long anticipated new studio album, sounds of the universe on mute. eclectic and energised, the bands new release is their most dazzling and diverse album in decades.

wer mit freddy fischer und seiner cosmic rocktime band noch nicht so recht vertraut sein sollte, braucht vielleicht doch erst ein paar stichworte. orientierungshilfen. da hört man also einen jazzrock, den es aber geradewegs auf den tanzboden zieht. und disco. auch diese lässige eleganz der lieder, die manfred krug mal gesungen hat in den siebzigern und damit selbst die ddr etwas swing schenkte, wenigstens für einen moment. und jetzt vielleicht noch eine weitere glitzerkugel voll disco dazu. das steckt man dann alles in einen schicken smoking, und schon steht da ein freddy fischer da.

sashas ever growing label last night on earth presents the first in a series of releases from electronic wizards ghosting season. the growth of ghosting season came naturally from their previous project worriedaboutsatan, in their own words: our work was still a network of dark, brooding - yet euphoric - electronica, but there began to appear towering, vibrant, and inescapable moments of dance music
state of mind are no strangers to drum and bass,and fresh off the heels of their last album nil by ear and their free live album,we would undoubtedly consider them official rockstars. always busy in the studio, managing their own imprint: som music (state of mind music),and actually finding time to tour,they are relinquishing some serious output. this double a-side record proves how versatile these gents are! the a side is a pure slice of raver euphoria with one of 2012s biggest anthems mass media, while the flip displays a more techy-rolleresque side of the duo featuring budapest,hungarys finest export,jade (whom needs no introduction) it is interesting to note, however,that all of our glorious vinyl artwork comes from the one like gabor simon aka jade. fact.
great 12 inch featuring two superb rarities from renowned disco label sound of new york. run by legendary producer peter brown, this small harlem-based imprint garnered a massive reputation in the late 70s and early 80s turning out some of the best disco tracks ever made. first up here is ny disco funk favourite >dance freak< from chain reaction. produced by peter brown himself, this is pure dancefloor dynamite, as raw and funky as it gets with pumping horns, grinding bass, wild percussion and crazy synths building steadily to a high-octane blistering dancefloor freakout! on the flip is the equally fantastic >shout at the disco< from little scotty, another relentless rough grooving jam, also produced by the prolific mr b. with both these tracks super-expensive and extremely hard to find in the original, don t miss this chance to get your copy!
