Mix Mup
Drive-By 12”
Mikrodisko

With his latest release “drive-by” mix mup suspends the principle of causal relation. Together we travel down a road that has lost its destination. the road becomes the actual reason for our motion. Past connecting elements we cruise from one possible interpretation to the next: a view from a car. Mix Mup offers us a plot on the way from A to B, which could be a piece of a secret, perhaps even a great story. in order to decide on this, we must lose ourselves first. lose ourselves in disorder and early sorrow.

Special Request
Deflowered 12”
Special Request

Second in a series of releases based on capturing the energy and culture of UK pirate radio but going way beyond that as the project unwinds. Limited press. The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted which celebrated producer is behind this excellent, killer two-tracker - he has had releases out on Planet E, Hot Flush and Phonica too! From the first highly coverted 12", "Lolita" makes a return here, but in 'Warehouse Dub' form (rather than the Warehouse Mix off the first EP - very mysterious). Luckily its a complete re-hash of the track, adding layer upon layer of jungle percussion, half-tempo breaks and twisting the original riff around a mulitude of filters and distortion units. A ridiculously long arrangement unfolds slowly and with purpose, totally sucking the dancefloor into its buzzing plasma ball of electricity. Like a super nova bursting into a black hole right before our ears. New track, "Deflowered" is tweaked here by the in-demand Kassem Mosse and joined by Mix Mup. Mosse is fast becoming synonymous with the slo-mo-techno sound along with Vakula and Juju & Jordash. Sinking the BPMs below the 125 minimum standard of yesterday, These new smacked-out techno cuts will find favour amongst hardened cosmic heads and Detroit beatdown lovers alike and this particular offering is no exception. Unique drum sounds and machine-code rhythms converge on clattering sonic bursts and a rabid energy.

Seltene Erden
Northern Rae 12"
Mule Electronic

This is the debut release from Kassem Mosse under his new moniker Seltene Erden. This new incarnation was started when Mule Electronic asked him to make an ambient song for Mule's ambient compilation Enjoy The Silence. The title track is dubby beatdown house -- like Theo Parrish meets The Orb. "Bayan Obo" is taken from Enjoy The Silence Vol. 2, and sounds peaceful and ambient.

Steffi
Remixes 12"
Ostgut

This EP showcases three special remixes of tracks off Steffi's debut album Yours & Mine (OSTGUT 016CD/008LP). Staffan Lindberg's hypnotic, rave-tinged mix of "Yours" weaves an intricate tale for the dancefloor -- nothing is rushed and the classic elements have room to shine in his fluid arrangement. Lone's remix works the Chicago-vibed "Arms" into a magical cosmic future-acid trip. The Analogue Cops' pumping remix of "You Own My Mind" is a perfect example of their trademark rough, tripped-out house vibe.
