lead track >future tense< is a six-minute journey into the deeper side of s.p.y.s production featuring west-coast male vocals courtesy of us soulster jo-s. flip side >roll the dice< switches things up and sees s.p.y go in on a darker and more menacing tip.
if there were ever two pivotal figures in sunshine pop, they would be writers/producers/musicians gary usher and curt boettcher. gary was a personal friend of brian wilson and hence co-wrote and produced a lot of the early beach boys material. but he also had a hand in the careers of the byrds and dick dale.
curt also worked with the beach boys and the byrds, and was a pioneer in the warm, cheerful and upbeat sounds with prominent vocal harmonies and sophisticated production techniques. put both of them in a studio and you get sagittarius, whose 1967 debut >present tense< captures the sounds of sunny california and locks it into its grooves perfectly.
now available on 180 gram audiophile vinyl for the first time in over 25 years with remastered audio!
toby leeming aka the third man returns with his 3rd ep for art - and what a belter it is. maintaining the high quality of previous releases >future tense< and >more than one< both aim for the dancefloor whilst retaining the melodic and harmonic sophistication that made tangier (art-dds4) and messier 66 (art-dds2) such sought-after tracks. another buy-on-sight release from art
nice price deal !!! andnotors fourth vinyl release sees rubadubs very own line idle laying down a hefty techno workout, which combines analogue crispness with distorted synths and a brooding vocal for maximum dancefloor devastation. mixing land cruising-era melodic bounce with a dirty electronic throb, tense slowly builds to a crescendo as the vocals rise up through the mix until the hook kicks in and it all gets messy. on the flipside, nu42Æs acid remix does exactly what it says on the tin, arpeggiating the synths, adding a healthy dose of squelch and fracturing the vocals to make a much more grinding long-player. whilst the original is a peak-time techno beast, the flip is pure warehouse material, nine-minutes of slowly-evolving drops and breakdowns designed for an early hours of the morning after-party. tense is andnotors fourth vinyl, after limited-edition releases from cledus snow, tj kong and aleksandr jurczyk, and each copy comes individually hand-stencilled. previous releases have gained them a substantial following from djs like tom middleton, kenny larkin, mark bell (lfo), mark moore (s express) and erwin van moll.

als alex christensen im oktober 2017 sein ambitioniertes projekt »classical 90s dance« veröffentlichte, war ihm die neugierde von kollegen, fans und medien gewiss. als wichtigster deutscher impulsgeber der techno-, dance- und eurodance-bewegung, erarbeitete er sich zunächst als dj und komponist, schnell aber auch als producer weltruhm. plötzlich sollte der mann, der seit anfang der 90er-jahre vorzugsweise im hintergrund die musikalischen strippen für über 40 millionen verkaufter tonträger zog, erklären, was es mit »classical 90s dance« auf sich hatte. »classical 90s dance 2« ist nun die konsequente fortsetzung und der vorläufige höhepunkt seiner bald vier jahrzehnte andauernden musikreise.

special request joins forces with nina kraviz and anastasia kristensen, shattering the doors of perception over a four-track ep. through the looking glass drops july 20th on houndstooth. on the a side, nina kraviz provides two interpretations of curtain twitcher. alice was here remix takes the intensity of the original and boils it into a 4/4 spin of frenzied basslines and distorted acoustics, punctuated by her languid reading of the mad hatter. for the samba version, syncopated polyrhythms take charge of a fragmented melody. opening the aa side, looking glass lures you down the rabbit hole with mysterious bleeps, only to reveal a whirlwind of stormy breaks and junglist percussion. closing off the trip, anastasia kristensens remix of tiresias marches its way through a field of swollen bass and glitchy percussion.

tommy rawson releases are sporadic but always high quality. as a former member of the souled duo who ran the excellent fresh minute label hes been around the more tropical end of uk house and broken beat for many years and this, his first full release for bergerac ushers forth a new level in his sound. this whole record is a masterclass in post bruk, forward thinking, shining, bright uk dance music. unmatched in emotion and vibes. deep blue is quite simply the sound of the summer. sun drenched, euphoric and soaring. broken but not broken, 4/4 but not quite housey. jazzy, soulful yeah. it was the highlight of red rack ems olive grove closing set at love international last year when it provided the most halcyon of moments. live trumpet from vicky flint and a whole bag of vibes from tommy rawson. this is a classic. trust. past tense is a super tropical african tinged house stomper which shows tommys love of sunshine vibes once more with acres of space, insistent chants, dubby pianos and a tinge of jungle roller bass. the final track into the future takes us into almost blade runner-esque orchestral emotion but with a kind of balearic feel tucked in there too. beautiful, lilting, emotional memories. you can feel so much love in this track. such a special record. buy it. love it. treasure it.
