Andre Lodemann
Still Dreaming
Freerange

 

ANDRE's debut on FREERANGE feats 2 original house cuts: "STILL DREAMING" & "WHATEVER I DO." The Berlin based producer/DJ was responsible for several dope underground house 12"s on how own BEST WORKS label as well as releases on INFRACOM, SIMPLE and G STONE. Limited edition 12".









Anthony “Shake” Shakir
Frictionalism 1994-2009
Rush Hour

Rush Hour is proud to present a compilation of producer Anthony "Shake" Shakir's best work he released on his Frictional Recordings label (and some on 7th City, too) over the past 15 years, circa 1994-2009. Shakir is an undoubted legend in early Detroit techno, shaping the sounds of artists such as Juan Atkins and Derrick May, and refusing to bow to trend or convention. The label Shake started brought us some of the deepest, funkiest and most diverse techno, though much has been overlooked in many cases. After a few years' hiatus, Shake is now back and will be recording and releasing on Frictional soon. But first, we look back and/or get the chance to catch up with his catalog. 4 x 12"  + 7".

New Techno/Electro 12"s Coming This Weekend:



Italoboyz
TECHNO TOWER 12"
MSHIP022

These guys fuse organic and electric sounds and make them collide with elements of jazz and folk. "TECHNO TOWER" and "CHINESE" are a testament to these roots and will turn some heads on the dancefloor. This isn't your average tech house or techno.




Roland Appel
COLD BLOODED REMIX 12"
AUS0923

Deep techno starts the record with "COLD BLOODED." HORSE MEAT DISCO fav "SNOW IN THE SPRINGTIME" gets a full single release, old school disco in every way. DFA darlings RUNAWAY turn it in a slow burning house direction that builds the tension.

New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming this Weekend:

break sl city wasteland


Break Sl
CITY WASTELAND PART 2 12"
PHP040 

Part 2 starts with "MOVE," true-school techno. "DIRTBOMB" has a raw, bluesy house feel, and on the flip are the Detroit influenced "WEIRD DANCER" and the vinyl exclusive "TFF," which delivers intense and acid-like drum layers. Chicago galore!



Falko Brocksieper
ADOBE EP 12"
CNTX35 

The first cut is downright mysterious...deep stacked chords play with your ears. "SOUTH EAST" follows a Detroit-ish motif as a pan flute pangs the air, keeping the high ends in focus. Slicked out tech house made from the man with a keen sense of what keeps us lost in a groove.

New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming This Weekend:
dustin zahn stranger to stability rek'd
Dustin Zahn
STRANGER-LEN FAKI REMIX 12"
REKD001

Crazy demand for LEN FAKI's PODIUM remix led to this pressing. HUGE summer techno tune that CARL COX dropped at Space and that wrecked the dance floor. The build ups and drops are INSANE! Also includes the original version and a "X BREAK" mix from FAKI as well. Do not sleep on this!
    


Raza
DETROIT, WORK IT OUT 12"
DP02

Cult like techno imprint invites a former WARP artist to let the music talk under the alias RAZA. State of the art modern techno, sounding as if it was forged in Detroit and finished in Berlin. Three beautiful tracks, fans of ECHOCHORD, STYRAX. Audiophile mastering, vinyl only!
