Four Tet & Mala
Nothing To See
First up is the glitchy, sparkling electronica of "NOTHING TO SEE" by FOUR TET, with a shuffling post-garage vibe to it. On the flip is "DON'T LET ME GO" by MALA, a thick stew of discordant beats and propulsive melodies. As the label says, "Future Bass!" Limited edition and available now!

Keep It Cheap
Keep It Cheap
Eric 'Dr. Dunks' Duncan (COMBI / Still Going / Rub 'n' Tug etc) launches his new Keep It Cheap imprint, the winner here being the Dolly Parton edit that Harvey’s been caning for a while now. Hot!
Conrad Schnitzler's Zug is one of the most important and one of the first electronic minimalist works that was published in the 1970s. Almost simultaneously with Kraftwerk's groundbreaking Autobahn, "Zug" appeared on the legendary The Red Cassette (1973). Wire wrote about Zug: "Kraftwerk might have used similar methods to create rhythm, but three decades on, it still sounds like the future." As an original member of Tangerine Dream (1969-1970) and a founding member of Kluster, Conrad Schnitzler is a creator of milestones in the history of electronic popular music. This release is rounded off with remixes by Con (1978) fan Stefan Betke aka Pole and Borngräber & Strüver. Pole and Kassian Troyer (Radian) have mastered the record, so the best quality is guaranteed.
Liberation Through Hearing
This is the second in a series of three vinyl-only albums to be released by the UK's Demdike Stare aka Miles Whittaker (MLZ, Pendle Coven) and Sean Canty (Finders Keepers). Once again indebted to the black arts, the occult and Tibetan spiritualism, there are dark currents running through these 6 pieces, each one referencing the six images displayed on the cover. Demdike Stare will be back later on in 2010 with the third and final part in this mystical odyssey. Mastered and cut by Lupo at D&M, Berlin. Artwork by Andy Votel. Strictly limited vinyl pressing.

For 12 Minutes She Danced With An Alien
"Hot on the heels of releases from Edwin Oosterwal and iO, Rejected ready themselves to drop their latest smash hit -- one that we are certain is set to rule this summer's dancefloors. Gerd's For 12 Minutes She Danced With An Alien originally saw a release as a B-side back in 1995 on Speedy J's Beam Me Up! label. Having recently made his own edit of the track, Joris Voorn secured permission to sign it for Rejected with Gerd agreeing to produce a fresh new version. The finest in '90s house, reworked and refreshed for today's floors, Gerd's new take is a sparkling, sunshine-tinged delight perfect for those sunset or sunrise moments. Joris does what he does best by injecting some driving, disco-tinged vibes for the dancefloor."

Kenton Slash Demon
Schwarzschild Solution Part 1
"Kenton Slash Demon is best known in Scandinavia as a part of the amazing indie-disco band When Saints Go Machine (remixed by dOP and played by DJ Koze in his last RA podcast). However, Tartelet Records just signed the two guys to let them wear their electronic outfit. Their common musical history goes ten years back even though they are all in their early twenties, and even if they are not too known within the international club scene they have already enjoyed acknowledgement from many sides. Fredski, Tomboy and the rest of the Tartelet crew are looking forward to presenting Kenton Slash Demon, which might just become one of Tartelet's big ones. Tart 6(66) is a real EP for the demons. All effective club tracks. A: 'KhaNabi': Big big big stumbling grooves matched up with a mean bass line and explosive kick, all mixed up with a very intense zitar that takes the track through massive peaks. This track will blow the dance floor at peak hour. No chance you will be disappointed. 'KhaNabi' will stir the floor like a hot pot."
Accompanying the miraculous LARJ edition by Arto Mwambe, this piece of vinyl features two previously-unreleased trinkets. The Berlin-Moss axis under guidance of the Sex Tags Mania emperors delivers two remixes that are exclusively available on the vinyl platter. With some help by the reclusive Don Papa, DJ Sotofett and some other mystical people, these friendly characters grace Arto Mwambe's "Midi Vice" with their unique voices and distinctive vision of what dance music can be.
This EP from Nick Solé comes in a limited edition of colored, hand-numbered vinyl. Classic U.S. deep house flavored with a long, minimal, dubby atmospheric track. Includes a remix by Atmos. Tip!
