Pinch & Shackleton

Boracay Drift 12"
Honest Jon’s

A pulverizing, apocalyptic opening gives way to a menacing bass excursion, expertly putting on the frighteners dubwise, before dissolving ambiguously into the amazing, extended vocal treatment -- a thread of eerie, garbled sublimity, like a kind of black-magic plainsong. Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis' epic remix is more spaced and spooked, the dread of the original version in check but still body-rocking and driving out of its silences.

RVDS
Moon Oddity 12"
Laid

RVDS presents with "Moon Oddity" the real house music soundtrack to a weekend's journey into outer space. This eccentric 12" is the result of playing his synths and drum computers virtually like no other. Dance music has never been so quirky, wacky, jacky -- far out deep inside.

Sistol/Pole
The SYNTH Huckaby Remixes 12"
Slices Of Life

Slices Of Life presents tracks from Vladislav Delay's Sistol and Pole projects, remixed by Mike Huckaby. To start, "Keno" is transformed into an outstanding, dubby, Detroit-house masterpiece -- exclusively released as an extended version. On the B-side, Huckaby remixed a track originally produced in the same time period: Pole's "Silberfisch." In 2011, Mike Huckaby keeps the dubby and slightly melancholic, crackling atmosphere of the original, but his "S Y N T H Remix" beams "Silberfisch" straight onto the dancefloor.
