ULYSSES
Gibson In E/Love Hangover 12"
Internasjonal

Elliot is Ulysses, also known as half of Neurotic Drum Band together with John Selway on Wurst or as debuted for Internasjonal Spesial, Filipsson & Ulysses (together with Holmar Filipsson). "Gibson In E" played on Beats In Space radio in March 2010 to much positive feedback. Lovely Kraut-y doodlings on a spaceship. For the B-side, we're treated you to Ulysses' personal rendition of Diana Ross ballad-goes-disco classic "Love Hangover."



REEL BY REAL
20 Years Surkit Part A/B 12"
A.r.t.less

A.r.t.less presents a retrospective by Detroit techno veteran Martin Bonds aka Reel By Real in two parts. Some of these tracks are now seeing a proper release for the first time, due to the fact that they had been only released as a limited white-label on Interface Records in 1990 and 1991. This first 12" is packaged in a limited handmade artwork cover to house both records. All tracks restored by Don Williams and remastered by Redshape.

Listen to "Surkin" here:



Shackleton
MAN ON A STRING 12”
Woe To The Septic Heart

"Since writing the suicide note for Skull Disco in 2008, Shackleton has made a well received long player for Perlon and remixed the likes of Harmonia and Brian Eno, Moderat and To Rococo Rot as well as making a mix CD for the Fabric series and one of the final mixes for the Mary Anne Hobbes show on Radio One. This release, however, sees Shackleton once again with his own label which will go by the name of Woe To The Septic Heart! Those who have heard Shackleton before may know what to expect and will not be surprised to hear two bass-heavy, percussive tracks with a psychedelic edge and an involved narrative that will perhaps not be played out on every dancefloor. More's the pity."

Listen to "Bastard Spirit" here:



Welcome Stranger

BROLENE 12”
Lets Get Lost

WELCOME STRANGER (aka THOMAS BULLOCK/RUB N TUG/MAP OF AFRICA) edits OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN's 1974 disco version of "JOLENE" (originally sung by DOLLY PARTON). The flip is an edit of ZZ TOP's "I WANNA DRIVE YOU HOME"(!).






Dirt Crew
FEELS GOOD EP 12”
Dirt Crew

A solid 2 track EP from the DIRT CREW! Here they keep the influence of the 90s with straight forward house with that classic bass sound, chords, and filtered vocal bits. Support from DJ SNEAK, STEVE BUG, SOLOMUN, etc.

Listen to "Feels Good" here:




Scuba
TRACERS (DEADBEAT REMIX) 12”
Hotflush

DEADBEAT's understated drum & bass mix of "BEFORE" sounds almost like JOY ORBISON taking a stab at D&B with its lush pads and dreamy vocals. JOE's remix of "SO YOU THINK YOU'RE SPECIAL" is a playful treat, as if MR. SCRUFF at his jazzy house best opted for a nu garage/dubstep version.

Listen to the Deadbeat remix here:



CAB DRIVERS
Welcome To The Club EP 12"
Highgrade

Highgrade presents the comeback of Berlin techno legends Daniel Paul and DJ Zky, aka Cab Drivers. With their label, Cabinet Records, they contributed to the avant-garde with jacking beats that were uncompromising and groundbreaking during the '90s techno blitz. Here are four tracks that instantly capture the hypnotic feeling of former times and prove that Cab Drivers have not lost any of their innovative standards. The sound is linear, fresh and technically mature. Includes an edit by Warten Borgmann.



Bottin presents Tingpong
NEW RELIGION 12"
Nang

TINPONG is a collaboration between BOTTIN and Swiss singer JOY FREY PONG, unleashing a cover of DURAN DURAN's "NEW RELIGION" at a snappy 140bpm with added bass guitar and trumpet. MARCUS MARR's remix has a mid-period PRINCE vibe, while PETE HERBERT turns it into a big house ...





Martyn
LEFT HANDER 12"
3024

Inhabiting the expanding realm that falls somewhere between house, techno, and dubstep, this new offering is a chunky monster destined to work magic on multiple dancefloors. "SHOOK UP" is more of the same with a decidedly sunny piano bent cascading over thumping, clattering dub house.
