for its eighth release apartment delivers its first long player, by mysterious producer, vernon (dixon avenue basement jams / night gallery). little is known of this artist – what we do know is that his formative years were spent in belgium, immersing himself in the emerging new beat and ebm sounds emanating from the countrys dance clubs. for his release on apartment he has created 6 tracks that reflect these early influences, whilst also taking in other techno, house and electro influences. pounding drums, rasping hi-hats, rave stabs, twisting acid lines and grinding synths all come together under the unique tutelage of this most skilled of producers, all the while watched by the experts…
HOW TO TRAVEL THE UNIVERSE (WITHOUT A FLYING SAUCER) (WHITE VINYL)
coloured 12" Vinyl UK25.10.13
the man from marseille vernon dropping his second e.p for dabj here, building on the groove of his debut >chicken dance< but adding an extended palette of sound and taking things in a slightly tougher direction. >how to travel the universe (without a flying saucer)< kicks of with >ignition<, an eerie ghost train cut ripe for an lsd-fuelled danse macabre through the town after the witching hour. >one night in tanzania< rolls out into a rugged, clave-led jacker: a perfect mix between the deep and the tough that vernon can deftly muster, seemingly with ease. flip the white wax for a run of jagged, acidic noise on >how to build a pyramid<, a perfect soundtrack to getting >the acid life< tattooed on yer forehead tebori-style by a crippled ex-yakusa in a back-alley whorehouse...
when hartmood sent us his stuff in the late eighties we were like >oh my gosh its far too early for that kind of next gen shit!< we asked him if he was in a hurry. he said >do what ever you like!< more then two decades later we thought it was time to release his shit. and so we did. we asked boris bunnik and dcnt to do a remix and in the end we even had some more next gen shit!
the unstoppable boris bunnik is back once again, this time as vernon felicity with a four track ep for mos recordings. the tracks see him explore his usual analogue heavy sound, but there is a little more space in his arrangements, a more rueful mood...
coming off an outstanding 12 inch,, release on dixon avenue basement jams this mysterious artist returns w/an ep that ranges from slamming acid and bass heavy techno to a thick house jam with a dizzying jazz influence.
the e.p kicks off with she can dance, a slow burning acid number that has elements of deep, grooving house from the detroit school. in fact, the second cut low control bares the influence of detroit too, with its murky, dubbed-out chords ala luke hess moving into a punchy bassline with minimal but functional drum patterns. proceedings get a bit more bouncy on the smoking hat, a quirky acid romp on the less daft side of ceephax, and the perfect soundtrack to accompany a feature-length documentary about.... a smoking hat. finishing up the e.p is fudge fingas remix of low control, the only man qualified to make an already deep as fuck track even deeper. theres been some on-point criticisms about a lot recent deep stuff getting lost in noodly jazz territory, but we are in no danger of that nonsense with fudge fingas at the controls: accomplished a musician he may be, hes never been one to lose the way, and this mix proves his deft and subtle remix talents. dabj done done it again, and hopefully this is the first in a long line of productions from vernon.

low-down and dirty jazz goes right back to the early 1900s in storyville, after the bands had played their hot tunes in the evening for dancing couples, the musicians would head off to the after-hours joints and play a less energetic but more bluesy kind of music, enabling them and their late-night audiences to get through to the early hours of the morning without suffering total exhaustion. and nobody in new orleans laid into the blues so low down and dirty as buddy bolden, whose funky butt became a staple in the repertoire of the citys early jazz bands.
jacksonville, florida, 1960. charles hungry williams mentors young clayton fillyau after he had just joined the james brown band: *i dont care where you put it on those drums, remember where 1 is and you ll never lose the time. listen to hungry on huey smiths *talk to me baby* and then listen to how clayton turns it into a relentless breakbeat on james browns *i ve got money*. earl kings *trick bag*, prefiguring the meters, is as good an example of early new orleans funk as can be found.

THE ROOTS OF HIP HOP - FROM CHURCH TO GANGSTA (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK10.01.14
hip hop did not develop in a vacuum - its roots can be traced back to the earliest afro-american music, and the folks who were influenced by these sounds along the way. this lp compiles some of the great recordings that showcase the spoken word and street culture put forth from the 1920s through the 1960s that would go on to influence the entire rap music genre. the themes will be familiar - religion, politics, black experience, badass gangsta rap, speed, sex, drugs and rock n roll. lets listen to the lessons that the hipsters of the past taught the rappers of today.

mit chaim, kiki, skinnerbox und we love liest sich die liste der auf vinyl only edits vertretenen künstler wie ein who is who der bpitch tech-house allstars. und damit nicht genug – die vier künstler liefern neue bearbeitungen ihrer favorites der letzten singles: chaim lässt seinen tech-house knaller ur around me noch eine spur spookiger klingen. skinnerbox meisterwerk god is fading klingt ebenso energiegeladen wie tricky, und we love s elegische tech-house songperle end of night schiebt hier mit gestripptem arrangement noch zwingender nach vorne. when lou met vernon, das neue werk von kiki, verrät schon nach den ersten takten zweifelsfrei seinen all-time-lieblingstrack, dessen originaltitel ohne weiteres als motto dieser großartigen 12 stehen kann: groove is in the heart!
christmas compilations are often cheesy, smooth selections of bland, overplayed seasonal pabulum. even announced with funky or groovy, it often leaves listeners disappointed. so were jan and tobias. first, they were bugged out by the all filler-no-killer compilations. the second and more important reason was that of the considerable number of proper rare groove tunes recorded and released in the 1960s and 70s, many languished in obscurity. the pair started a collaboration to create a funky-soul xmas compilation.
the lp sleeve contains scans of all 45rpm single labels as well as liner notes to each song. the vinyl comes with a gatefold cover and is limited to 500 copies.
