mang dynasty are the collective force of bill brewster and ray mang. both should need no introduction! together they combine to form the mighty mang dynasty, and deliver crash the box a riot of afrobeat, house and disco stylings, laced expertly with horn stabs and vocal chops, guaranteed to light up any club or festival stage. on the remixes are two exciting up and coming producers currently making waves: lord leopard offers a chunky, abstract bumping house version that s good for the floor. tee mango takes a loopy disco excursion, with squelchy synth stabs and party starting vocal.
aus music follow up a string of exclusive releases from primitive trust with tee mango (one half of pt) having released on clone in 2017 tee mango comes back to aus for his second ep in as many years. ep#2 carries forth much of the the same classiness hes well know for. a side ‘come a little closer samples a personal favourite make it last forever by inner life which is paired with playful drum rhythms and smooth rhodes chords. prototypical opts for punchy drums and a swinging bass, a track that would work as well peak time as it would warming up. wazoo rounds off the perectly balanced ep a deep cruiser with a pinch of acid.
will saul and tee mango continue the primitive trust ep series with their third release. little love ep is a blissful 3 track package featuring a floorplan remix. little love builds warm harmonies driven by syncopated bass grooves whilst tee mangos dub of tejon heads for the sun with radiant, shuffling chords. for the remix, floorplan delivers unrestrained rapture on a peak time roller full of cathartic vocal bursts.
4 prime house tracks on clone royal oak by mr millionhands black aka tee mango. a very versatile ep that continues the tradition of the royal oak series. continually breeding new offsprings of the classic well-known 80 s and 90 s styles, all with a strong sound signature of the artist. tee mango leaves the traditional path of 90 s house music and delivers 4 intense tracks all looking for that perfect groove that you just dont want to stop. looping vocals, woozy chords, irresistable laidback basslines, jazzy keys... after hour vibes, peak time heat... this ep got it all. big up mr mango... this is some proper house music!
we ve had our eyes and ears on tee mango for a while now. his debut album imperfections is a future classic in our book and the tribute series has been part of our dj-sets for a while now. in short we had to get him to do an ep for local talk. dadhaus ep is forward-thinking music with an edge (undoubtedly sharpened through countless studio hours). tee channels the deep house flavours of detroit and chicago across four tracks of exquisitely executed percussion and sample-not-sample work. its another winner from the man like tee mango.
after his banging ep 1 on aus, tee mangos back for the 5th installment in his tribute project, inspired by the much referenced theo parrish quote: love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or dj. everything else stems from that core, that love. with that love, sampling can become a tribute, an expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. time is now time is now comes off like adamski era seal rerub for the small hours. replete with hypnotic looped piano and drums sounding like they were lifted from vaughan mason s raze house archive. simply sweet sweet electronic music. make it last forever the b side is tee mango on home turf, with a selection of choice samples under his cap (from a record you might recognise), some simple loose sampled drums and a smattering of dub delay. love for this series coming from: axel boman, benji b, artwork, fred p, and a heap of others. these tribute releases sell out pretty quick, my hunch is that these will not hang about.
aus music follow up a string of releases from shenoda, recloose and marquis hawkes with a disco-tinged 12inch courtesy of a fresh signee and millionhands head honcho tee mango. having so far almost exclusively released on millionhands alone, tee mango makes a rare appearance outside of his home turf and in doing so follows on from his acclaimed ‘imperfections vol.1’ lp which garnered widespread following from the likes of axel boman, palms trax, gilles peterson and bonobo. his ep#1 for aus carries forth the sense of raw, sample heavy soul that was the real spark of imperfections vol.1, while maintaining a feel for the needs of the dancefloor. loose, natural drums, deftly chopped samples and hazy synth lines keepit moody. this collection of 4 tracks could be the perfect soundtrack for those early days of sunshine. as mango himself says. off all the places left to dance, this is where ill stay.
for our 57th release we’re stoked to be bringing you some heavy new biz from the one and only ron basejam. this man is responsible for some of the classiest disco-influenced house music dating back to ’05 when his anthemic for the people blew our minds and soundtracked many an after-party so perfectly. recent ep’s on eskimo, wolf music, futureboogie and top notch remixes for the likes of people must jam, brownswood and classic have all delivered in spades. here on the sound of a feeling ep we have three brilliant raw, stripped and chopped analogue jams plus the first ever remix from tee mango who comes hot off his stunning debut lp imperfections on millionhands.
tee mango is the alter ego of millionhands founder tom mangan and imperfections vol. 1 is his debut long playing record. after the success of his theo parrish inspired tribute 12s tee mango returns with imperfections vol. 1.early support on this coming from: caribou, leon vynehall, axel boman, tim sweeney, moxie, wolf music, laurent garnier, kornel kovacs and a selection of others. imperfections vol. 1. is a celebration of off kilter electronic music. featuring vocal contributions from femme aka laura bettinson of nigel godrichs ultraista, and the edo van breemen of canadian pysch wizards brasstronaut. full of pleasantly discordant musical mistakes and loose sample-laiden coincidences. fill your boots. x
the 4th in tee mangos tribute project, inspired by the much referenced theo parrish quote: love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or dj. everything else stems from that core, that love. with that love, sampling can become a tribute an expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. time is up is the first track here. arpeggios shimmer and crisp simple drums hiss and fizz along, until introduction of the classic detroitian vocal and one shot filtered rhodes sample. a deftly simple combination of classic ingredients. think 90s inner city meets a dj sprinkles era motor city drum ensemble.
strictly limited to 500! the 3rd in tee mangos tribute p​,,,roject, inspired by the much referenced theo parrish q​,,,uote: love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or dj. everything else stems from that core, that love. with that love, sampling can become a tribute, an expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage.​,,,
throw is the 1st track here, which manages to loop a refrain and bass that candy staton anthem, all the while sounding like a forgotten moodymann mpc jam. vocals, skipping snares, a bouncing tambourine & one of the finest bassline ever written (by someone else) compell you to dance. need your love is a heads down sample house jam. it’s looping vocal, super tight drums, woozy chord stabs and sirens make it feel like the result of a studio session between a 90’s dubbed out louie vega & man-like switch (before he went feral).
2 fresh edits here from mh black. o f f m s g coming with the if carl craig did disco vibe while tee mango brings the slow-mo looseness of a raw cuts release. hand stickered, stamped and numbered with no repress so when theyre gone, theyre gone.a side: sounds distinctly like a stripped back and stretched out rework of roy ayres chicago.b side: works the instantly recognisable piano from rotary connections black gold of the sun.blk001 sold out within the week, i cant imagine these will hang about.

180g heavyweight black 12- vinyl in 12” brown recycled uncoated card sleeve with holes.
following the dazzling debut 12 inch, crumbs hit us with another stunner! although delivering a mysterious & scantily clad 12 inch is hardly a novel concept these days, it does concentrate the mind (and feet) on the music more than the brand. it is undercover time again, and we are sworn to secrecy, of course ... but three producers of considerable note contribute here.
