Laid 11
Laid

Dial's sub-label Laid presents tracks by UK's Juergen Junker and Lowtec. Junker enters the Laid zone with two deeply-rooted house pieces. Lowtec has always been a main influence on the Dial/Laid family, and here he presents a dirty Rhodes stomper to hit the house floors again. Freaky alert!

Panorama Bar 03
Ostgut Ton

This is part three in a vinyl series of exclusive tracks off of Panorama Bar 03 (OSTGUT 017CD), compiled and mixed by Prosumer. Hitherto unreleased, the three tracks on this 12" tick all the boxes that make Prosumer such a unique DJ: house in its various identities. Soundstore starts the triptych with frantic fever visions of Chicago's second wave. Steffi slows down the pace with some serious deep house. To close, Hunee teaches you a freestyle lesson.

Interview with Analog Freak Mr. G

Born in Derby in the Midlands, August,1961, and yeah, I’ve always been here……….and……Still Here.

What got you interested in house/techno music
?

I’m an analog freak so it’s always been about synths. I didn’t know at the time, but that was the link. The sounds from Studio One to Stevie to Eno to Joey Beltram. It’s about the sound and rawness – that’s my link with house & techno.

When and why did you choose to start to making your own music?

I met Keith from Bang The Party and went to his studio at Interchange. Then with Cisco becoming KCC late eighties, early nineties………...Always had a crazy love of music and buying wax at a very early age, it was a natural progression.

Who were your music influences when first getting involved in the music business, and why?

There were no real influences. It was just another part of music being in my life……..I did love what Jeff, Joey, Maurizio and Luke were doing but then I was still buying lots of other music which was non dance as well. I suppose Cisco was a big influence cause he knew all the tech stuff and I didn’t, so it was a big learning curve and interesting.
