The Nothing Special
The house/techno alias of D&B producer MARCUS INTALEX sees him in fine form with a raw, stripped back groove on the title song, while "JUAN TWO FIVE" is clearly a Detroit-influenced house gem. Limited to 300 copies worldwide, this is the 2nd release on CRAIG RICHARDS' THE NOTHING SPECIAL label.

Cassegrain & Tin Man
The tracks that resulted from this very special collaboration, are exactly what you might expect: An ideal and unique combination of modern dark techno as it comes from labels such as prologue or stroboscopic artefacts and classic acid. Some of them aim directly at the dancefloor, some come along rather dreamy and spaced out.

Gutter Flex (12”)
Argot's first release is the Gutter Flex EP by Amir Alexander. Its four tracks reveal a startlingly rich and complete aesthetic inspired by the history of American house while avoiding merely emulating its forefathers. Alexander's commanding melodies are carried on hard-bitten beats and often guided by deeply resonant bass lines befitting of this trained bassist.

Moments in Rhythm #3 (12”)
Moments in Rhythm vol 3. was inspired by an in-depth conversation that questioned the level of importance that today’s society does or does not value it’s critical art forms, most specifically music … the universal language, as a means of free expression. From this passionate discussion spawned the composition of an opened ended letter, written in 4/4 format that captures and shares the passion of this conversation, and ultimately asks some questions such as … Is It In You?

Work That Shit Party 12”
This hot single that bangs the hell out of a two-note riff that expands, warps, and contracts, then blazes into a vocal refrain from FISCHERSPOONER member LIZZY YODER & percussion from PAT MAHONEY from LCD SOUNDSYSTEM. On the flip, the instrumental version does just as much club justice.
