Moritz Von Oswald Trio / Digital Mystikz

Restructure/Rebuild
Honest Jons

Musically, this new stepper appears to swell out of thin air. Immense and minimal, the propulsive groove of this monstrous child of Krautrock is overlain with the blues abstraction of Tikiman's guitar, the swing and effects of Marc Muellbauer's double bass, Delay's digressive steel percussion, and the otherworldly keys of Loderbauer and von Oswald. Mala's rebuild ratchets up the drama and dread. A barrage of bleeps rains down on a clopping drum pattern and steely synths. An immensely powerful record.

Listen to "Restructure 2" by the Moritz Von Oswald Trio here:





Arthur’s Landing

Arthur's Landing
Strut

Debut album comprising new versions of Arthur Russell songs, some known, some previously never heard. Produced and mixed by Brennan Green and the band’s Peter Zummo. New versions of Loose Joint’s “It's All Over My Face” and “In the Light Of the Miracle." Hot!

CV313
Seconds To Forever 12”
Echospace

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
Metropole 12”
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!

James Blake
LIMIT TO YOUR LOVE 10”
Atlas

His stunning cover of FEIST & CHILLY GONZALES showcases the melancholy soul of JAMES' voice mixed with moments of shuddering bass and a deliberate manipulation of silent spaces. This is truly a stunning piece of modern music. Do not miss out on this! 1-sided.

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.

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

Interview with Disco Nihilist

Posted by Oliver / Matt / Jordan, November 18, 2010 01:35pm | Post a Comment

Mike Taylor aka Disco Nihilist creates beautiful, raw jacky house music and has made quite an impact with just a few releases under his belt. Mike took some time out to answer some questions for us at Handsomeclub.

Tell us, who is the man behind the Disco Nihilist moniker?

That would be me.

Do you work a day job?

No, I don't have a job.

Do you DJ as well as produce?

Yeah, I have a pretty decent record collection. I used to work at Backspin Records in Austin; I picked up a lot of good records and learned a lot about digging while I worked there.

What were your early influences in house music?

There are a lot of things going on in my music. I have been around dance music for 15 years now and I have listened to a lot of different music over the years. One of the big things with the vinyl jocks in Austin was the expectation that you could cover a lot of ground, and that you could do it in a single set and make it work. I think a lot of that had to do with Merrick Brown's approach to DJ'ing. He definitely set a standard for mixing.

If you were to look through my dance collection, you would find disco, italo, boogie, electro, garage, Chicago house, acid, Detroit techno, dubby techno, deep house, ghettotech and ghetto house... I am interested in a lot of different music. The last thing I want to hear is two hours of any particular dance genre; I want to hear a bit of everything.

Would you care to share some memorable record store experiences both as a customer and/or employee? Maybe a digging story where you struck gold?
