Anaxander
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.

Locked Groove
Rooted 12"
Hotflush

Hotflush presents the debut 12" from Belgian newcomer Locked Groove aka Tim Van de Meutter. The young producer delivers three hypnotizing and genre bending tracks that expertly weave the sounds of Berghain, soulful house and UK garage into a single crushing package. The Rooted EP draws you in with the title track, bouncing along to an acid baseline, then moves onto 'Drowning,' a moody techno track that was included on Scuba's DJ-Kicks mix compilation, filled with drum and ambient samples taken from field recordings. Lastly, 'Change,' a production that smartly melds classic house grooves with industrial techno, demonstrates Locked Groove's rhythmic finesse and long-term promise as an artist.
