Seconds To Forever 12”
This is the fourth EP from the cv313 album Dimensional Space. "Seconds To Forever" was originally planned for Echospace 010, but due to the nature of old Ampex tape, the track was unable to be restored -- but as a result, it was remodeled for this special limited release. Expect gorgeous plumes of sound, deeper than the ocean floor. The remodel strikes a space-age groove with live congas. The reprise of "Beyond The Clouds" is an extended (over 20 minutes long!) psychedelic trip.
KiNK & NEVILLE WATSON
Hour House Is Your Rush
KiNK & Neville Watson deliver two winning tracks that combine the best elements of Chicago house (for the body) and Detroit techno (for the soul), which has become their sound signature. Where "Metropole" will cause ruckus on the dancefloor at peak-time moments, "The Long Wait" is a deeper affair, perfect for late/after hours. Raw and dirty house music. When music is this good, let there be renaissance!

MOTOR CITY DRUM ENSEMBLE
Raw Cuts 5 & 6 12"
This is the long-awaited return of the Raw Cuts series from Motor City Drum Ensemble. Another huge one: the A-side has the trademark MCDE "hook" while the flip goes deep into late-night territory. This 12" has been played and supported by Gilles Peterson, Simbad, Karizma, Alex From Tokyo, Jazzanova, Gilb-r, Dixon, Âme, Domu, and many more.
Listen to "Raw Cuts 5" here:
Originally released in 1989 on Radical Records in the UK, and as a series of EPs on Trax Records in the U.S., this is a very special record, and truly a contender for best house album ever made. Virgo is Chicago house duo Merwyn Sanders and Eric Lewis, who also recorded as Ace & The Sandman and M.E. and shouldn't be confused with the other Virgo of Vince Lawrence and company. This album does not have one filler; all tracks are essential pieces of house music. Limited release with new artwork and remastered tracks.
Listen to "Ride" here:
Hailing from San Francisco, DJ and producer Alland Byallo has created his own unique sound out of a love for deep, soulful house combined with more edgy techno moments. This brilliant 2-tracker also marks Alland's arrival in his new home of Berlin. "Discovaries" has a healthy amount of Berlin's reduced techno affinity rooted within its phasing, growing p-funk waves. Tense, moody, and of course, drenched with attention to detail, this is a grower in the true Poker Flat style.
La Paloma 12”
Roman Flügel pursues his more contemplative side under his Roman IV moniker. "La Paloma" is exactly that kind of perpetual and lulling marathon jam that recollects his Testament tracks. Having said that, "Sa Caleta" looks for a more immediate hit. With a rigid punch and some greasy layers, you get Roman's take on the current or recurrent slow-motion disco craze. Finally, "Lucy" rolls over again, starts where "La Paloma" ended and makes its way up to a subliminal hook-line.
Close Up EP 12"
New York-based South African, Brendon Moeller has been producing music since 1994. His compositions have been released on Deep Space Media, Third Ear Records, Echocord, Mule Musiq, Rekids and more. He records as Brendon Moeller, Beat Pharmacy and Echologist. Dub, techno, jazz, Afrobeat and psychedelia are inspirations that appear in most of his music. Whether it be serious dancefloor bizniz, or dubbed-out bass-scapes, his music always possesses a quality and signature that have helped him become the prolific force he is today.

Desolate Cities/Give This World 10"
A very special set from James T. Cotton and D'Marc Cantu, teaming up as 2AM/FM for more serious Chicago house roughness. "Desolate Cities" has all the ingredients you love to hear in a proper dark house track, and reminds of the best works by Phuture. "Give This World" rides more on the melodic tip, and harkens back to classic tracks by Virgo, Ron Trent and G-Strings. Top quality Chicago house!

Setup Two: Fusion 12”
Darker and more sinister than all his releases before. Beats getting tighter and rougher, there's no chance to escape. Welcome to the world of Delta Funktionen. This second part of his Setup EPs brings three times dark, heavy, soaking techno tracks, with the otherworldly track "Conflict Data" closing the Setup. Bottom of Form.

Hideway Lane EP 12”
Vienna born and raised Oliver Kargl (aka RNDM)'s newest trilogy on Laid is a passionate commitment to sound -- the sound of Ron Trent, Mr. Fingers, Frankie Knuckles and countless others who are part of his unconscious reference system of countless nights he spent with this music we call house. This is pure devotion to the cause of joy. Includes a mix by Shine.
