Legowelt
Sark Island Acid EP
L.I.E.S



Always telling stories with his songs the prolific Danny Wolfers' latest offering the ''Sark Island Acid'' EP once again brings the listener into his shadowy world where the sounds of Chicago and Detroit meld with a demented dreamworld in which woodland creatures attempt space travel, lonely middle-aged men cast off by society perform circuit bending experiments in their parents suburban basement and autistic fans of late night talk radio call in from the outer-reaches to discuss world politics. Three tracks with the A-side being the bubbling, subduded and beautiful title track Sark Island Acid and the B-side containing the smudged out 808 ghetto compression of Backwoods Fantasies and the epic piano driven Sea of Nuhuhu. Strictly limited! 


Newworldaquarium
Dead Bears 2LP
NWAQ



Reissue of the highly-acclaimed The Dead Bears double LP from Dutch producer Newworldaquarium, originally released in 2007. Covers a wide spectrum from obscure, ultra-fat discofied house tracks to spaced-out ambient soundscapes. Thick thick!! Enter the world of Newworldaquarium. Comes with lovely Delta artwork.

 



Stereociti

Kawasaki
Mojuba



This is the debut album by Stereociti from Tokyo. Stereociti aka Ken Sumitani is truly one of Japan's finest when it comes to uncompromising underground dance music with heart and soul, whether it is the realm of deep house music or the darker moods of Detroit techno. You can actually feel that his roots go far back into the early days of electronic club music but never lose sight of the history of soul, funk or dub. His debut Kawasaki, named after his hometown, delivers the quintessence of what is considered the Mojuba sound. Kawasaki is a timeless piece of music, equipped with everything you need for an outstanding album experience. It will take you by the hand from the very first moments and will be there for you second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day until you let it go.
 


Mondo

Work Me Baby 12"
Deeply Rooted House



Dj Deep is know as one of the key players in the French house and techno scene for many years now! Recently he found some old recordings on DAT tapes. Going through these tapes he heard several tracks that somehow still sounded fresh!. After listening he got fascinated. He describes some of the cuts as ''raw and somehow naive tracks'' and as 'something naive, authentic and honest'. So here we are... with a nice piece of wax that has 2 great tracks produced around 1994-1997, and 2 solid 2011 remixes. Rootstrax comes with an excellent mix that is an emotional deep take that really captures the emotion of the original and brings it to a much more mature and deep territory. The Marcelus mix gives us a much more radical, uncompromising Techno interepretation. Another stunner on Deeply Rooted House!!


Willie Burns
Willie Burns 12"
L.I.E.S



Sometimes things just fall into your lap as is the case with this L.I.E.S. release by savant basement producer, Willie Burns. Growing up on the infamous Baudin St. in New Orleans, the now 38 year old Burns was exposed to the world of music production in the early-nineties via his older brother, an aspiring Hip Hop producer. Consequently, as his brother's career was teetering towards its end, Burns spent a summer with cousins in New York City frequenting clubs like The Tunnel, The World, Sound Factory, and the legendary Save the Robots, being exposed to House music for the first time. Upon returning home he started tinkering with his brothers machines and began producing crude, rudimentary House tracks, trying to emulate the sounds he heard that summer in New York. The tracks on this recording are the unedited experimentations of Burns and are a testament to music when it comes straight from the heart without pretense or forethought unlike most dance music today.

 


Norm Talley

Tracks From The Asylum 12"
Mixmode



Norm Talley is delivering some heat on Delano Smith's MixMode records! Norm, known for his awesome tracks on Trackmode, Third Ear and the detroit Beatdown series, drops 4 dope Detroit house tracks with different vibes! Powder and More Powder are the peak hour house tracks with classic chords and a steady uptempo groove. Then we got two Beatdown tracks Lost and Private Party that both stand out.




Tevo Howard
Pandora's Box D12”
Hour House Is Your Rush



This 8 track double 12" sees Chicago's Tevo Howard experiment with rhythms and textures giving us a nice set of tunes from classic acid house to more Italo vibes. Includes 2 mixes of "SPEND SOME TIME", the long awaited cut "AUTUMN SPELL", "CONFUSION", "INTERSECTION", "THE PROMENADE" & more.
