the jamaican sonia pottinger was once called “the most important jamaican woman involved in music business”. dancing down orange street is a collection of some of her famous productions for different artists. the album captures the moment when rocksteady transformed into reggae by speeding up a little and moving towards a more jerky and less smooth musical palette. famous singers as delano stewart and ken boothe are present on the album with multiple tracks. the vocal trio the melodians (known for their hit “rivers of babylon”) provide a couple of beautifull songs. even after all those years (released for the first time in 1969) the compilation remains a treasure of showcasing some of the finest songs produced by sonia. sonia pottinger was married to music producer lyndon pottinger and started to record musicians in 1996. during the late 60’s she produced songs for joe white. the melodians and toots & the maytals.

soundway hat neben einem herz f³r die afrobeat-gemeinde einfach die besten connections. um beatkoryphõen ausgesuchte sortimentsperlen zur exklusiven verfeinerung anzuvertrauen. und so erklõrt sich auch die 12ÆÆ mit den beiden edits von -only you- und -hafi deo-. zwei dancefloor-klassikern aus den achtzigern. sie treten in die fu?stapfen der beiden kompilationen -doing it in lagos- und -nigeria disco funk special-. -only you- ist eine nummer des nigerianischen disco-altmeisters steve monite. das bereits im original ein gefragtes dj-st³ck ist. aber durch die ?berarbeitung von frankie francis (sofrito) noch einmal an tanzflõchen-f³llqualitõt gewonnen hat. etwas entspannter geht es auf der b-seite mit -hafi deo- zu. einem kongolesischen disco-pop-song von tabu ley rochereau. den nick the record und dan tyler (idjut boys) mit diversen dub-spielereien veredelten.
this reissue of the small batch of records which was at first released in 2015 now comes to the stores in this years fall. the record is the successor of the record bombtrap1 which is also called restless breed by chip tronic from 2004. * during the year 2014 the idea emerged to have these tracks remixed by musical friends. like minded artists were contacted by email or chat and samples were uploaded. during this process it became clear that it would be a better option not to do only remixes of the original tracks but instead to include tracks which have the same mood of the original which is industrial wonly dark techno. straightforward but quirky at the same time. * so the concept of doing a pure remix was enhanced to the upgrade idea. hence the number increased. apart from this maybe confusing history tree – it was a kind of freaky concept idea . but the label name can sometimes explains it – the resulting fruit which is this record contains 5 very different tunes. every record needs a kind of opener / hymn. the a1 is: flekk-botox_neoflekk. flekk takes the original robox neotech track and transforms it into a crispy blend between dutch electro . british wonky techno and french techno from the first zero years. the tune might have much cheese but this its character. bon appetit !

framework recordings is back with a very special. limited run vinyl ep that features five fantastic artists in oliv. o’hana. blurred. fred and ground16. and deep house doesn’t come much finer. first up is the low key oliv. part of the heady party collective bedford crew. his ‘submarine cruise’ is an effortlessly atmospheric dub house track. sandy shakers. balmy pads and an astral lead synth line all ooze underground class. o’hana is another emerging producer with an already well formed sound. his gorgeous ‘lune’ is another prime bit of deep house with analogue kicks and hits. subtle vocal samples and cavernous pads that melt into the horizon.
blurred are a young italian pair from labels like lapsus. safe music and hotfingers and keep up the cultured dub house vibe with more deeply enveloping grooves and dusty hits. the chords here are smeared in the background and sure to find favour with the more intimate dance floors out there. then it’s to impressive new swiss artist fred for ‘mw.’ it’s deep and house-y again. but this time it drives forward on huge kicks. with acid lines and icy hi hats bringing the energy while yawning synths soften the edges. closing out a tasteful package are swiss pair ground16 with ‘3rd street.’ cosmic in nature and with wide open pads. this house groove is another analogue beauty with warmth. smart vocal snippets and dreamscape pads. these are timeless deep house cuts that are deceptively simple and superbly executed.
