Dirty South of France 12"
Love What You Feel
Following up his killer cut "Moons of Jupiter" from LWYF-003, Anaxander is back on Love What You Feel with a full EP of his crazy French twist on house and techno. Titled "From the Dirty South (of France)", this record will solidify his standing as one of underground dance music's up and coming stars. Rocking out his distinctive arrangements and flexing his feel for mixing classic house sounds with modern production aesthetics, Anaxander shows great poise across the diverse cuts on display here.
Following successive solo outings on EPISODES, Chicago-based producers Hakim Murphy and Ike Release come together as Innerspace Halflife for the 'Astrodynamics EP.' Cold, raw, and cosmic. Limited quantities.

Whereas "CHA" is a slice of proto-techno which goes heavy on the unfiltered analog bass & galloping drum machine beats, B-side "DRACULA" is a stuttering 303 acid jam reminiscent of the brilliant "ROLAND'S JAM". Pressed on red vinyl.

Panther Moderns 12”
Massive new ep from Steve Moore which hits hard straight from the get go, as the title track Panther Moderns sees Moore moving into bleaker, mid-tempo musical territories with this brutally haunting, sparse, yet, funk ridden cut. Beyond Tykens Rift is the light at the end of the tunnel with its melodic and uplifting techno/new age leanings while the b-side's Ancient Shorelines I., which opens with heavy arpeggios and a plodding kick, creates desolate landscapes of still to be discovered planets as the song's dramatic narrative unfolds.
Assimilating The Shadow 2LP
In the time since Ricardo Donoso delivered his debut album Progress Chance, he's been pursuing his take on morning music even further. Informed by deep house, slowed-down trance and club influences, this new album unfolds to reveal elaborate sonic labyrinths that emerge out of the burning embers of dance music. Assimilating the Shadow has been designed to be consumed at sunrise, at the party's end. It assembles dark, carefully-considered sequences layered in a way that seems on first listen to be a fusion of opposites. Sacred geometry sets the stage for these intricate, emotional structures, illustrating tonal passages that appear divergent on first listen but which become coherent the further into the album you delve. It's an album that harks back to the beginnings of dance music but which somehow sidesteps the usual revivalist signatures that have become all too familiar in recent years, instead opting for a rhythmically complex variant that echoes early Jean Michel Jarre, Cluster, Manuel Göttsching and Speedy J but with a strange compositional quality quite unlike any of its influences. 2LP deluxe gatefold pressing limited to 500 copies. Mastered by James Plotkin and cut to vinyl by Lupo at Dubplates + Mastering, Berlin. Artwork by Lee Tindall.

This inaugural release on Modular Cowboy features brand new material from Cheap and Deep (a.k.a.

The remixes come courtesy of Berghain resident DJ Norman Nodge as well as duo Jonsson/Alter (Henrik Jonsson and Joel Alter) from the Kontra-Musik label in Sweden. The release also marks Cheap and Deep’s return to the scene, with the new track “Beautiful,” a modern take on the Chicago acid house tradition, featuring vocals by Crissy Liu with additional production by Morgan Packard.
