fresh from releases on honey soundsystem & non plus, vin sol returns to uttu’s dance trax series for vol.14 bringing his magic touch of ghetto house over 4 original productions! fresh cuts for the floor!
you see, vin and hny have history and to make this marriage official we needed it to be just right. big daddy vincente might be known around the world for his sure-fire dance-floor bombs, but not as commonly known for his queer ally reputation in san francisco. using his production prowess and dj knowledge to help bring up the bay area gay dance scene has built him a fanbase of all walks of life. we think this might be his most accomplished musical work to date, not just because it is for our label, but because it s a labor of love. the ep reads like a metaphor for the two sides of the city where it was made. moonchild and electrical storms reminisce the mystical and spiritual love affair san francisco has had since the 60s while patronize and bondage taped reference the sexually adventurous side the city indoctrinates to all its visitors. this record feels big to us and mostly because it reps our home and a hometown hero so hard. enjoy.
fresh from drops on clone jack for daze, non plus & ultramajic - san fran’s vin sol returns to uttu where he debuted his first material (the incredible edges of a vortex back in 2012 one of the 1st ever uttu releases!). nutthin butt ghetto azz acid bombs for the klubb!
the sixth instalment in the rhythm nation catalogue comes from american talent and ultramajic, nonplus and clone affiliate, vin sol. jacking, uptempo ghetto-tech fire crackers from start to finish. bosh
creepin in plays with the gray areas that exist between genres, contrasting with the clarity of the digital synths and over saturated analog drums. next up ineffekt is acid electro cut with thrashing percussion held together with 808 drums. red alert is the only track with a vocal. classic roland drums, deep sub and hardware synths mixed with the hypnotic vocal overlays make this one for the freaks. sky pager is slow cooked mid 90 s jacking business, the kind i m known for. 808 trash pile is an acid hammer of a cut with the drum and synth doing a maniacal game of call and response.
club lonely s first 12 inch coming from san francisco drum machine freak vin sol. vinyl only wild chicago trax for club destruction. west coast producer and clone affiliate vin sol has been steadily banging the box creating his twisted takes on house, techno and whatever weird ass grey area that exists between the two. his sound is uncompromising, carefully crafted trax for the dance floor hinging on raw and stripped back grooves with relentless movement. this sentiment is also expertly conveyed in his dj sets and mixes.with his production getting support from both techno and house heavy hitters like marcel dettmann, larry heard, seth troxler, richie hawtin, len faki, scuba, joey anderson and boddika.
following two previous appearances on the label (a collaboration with matrixxman for delft 004 and a remix of alden tyrell on 006), san francisco s vin sol makes his full solo debut on delft with the memory scan ep: four rough & ready analogue jams fizzing with the effervescent energy that has characterised the producer s output for unknown to the unknown, clone jack for daze and his own soo wavey imprint.
the soo wavey head honcho, and self-confessed gear hoarder, drums up 4 versatile trax with a big nod to the chicago roots. flanging melodies, vocal snippets on repeat and the one finger stabs that just hit the spot
it often said that all good things must come to an end, but it s especially satisfying when that end is a real high note. wed like to think thats the case with icee hot, as its five- year run as a party and a label is coming to a close this month, both with a 28hour marathon goodbye event and with daddy issues, the latest ep from vin sol & matrixxman.

vin sol & matrixxman return with their second double-header of remixes of one of the most distinctive voices in modern music, revisiting two of the hallowed songstress classics from the 80s. first up is the beautiful *never thought* which has been given the remix treatment many times before due to the accapella being on the original 12 inch. here vs & m add early 90s house flourishes - warm pads, deep chords and the original vocal seeping in and out of the mix, whilst elements slowly start to build up for what is a pretty ecstatic house rework of a classic. simple and effective. fans of innervisions wont be disappointed! on the flip, *love is stronger* is a mellower take on one of her signature hits. sticking to a cool 110 bpm tempo, it has got a bubbly, woozy late sunday afternoon vibe emanating from the first 4 bars. another solid rework from the vin sol & matrixxman camp!
