Kai Alce/Theo Parrish/Loosefingers
Assorted Elements EP
NDATL Muzik

We don't need to tell you how massive this will be. Theo Parrish, Kai Alce, and Larry Heard, under his Loosefingers guise, all on the one EP. Limited as always -- and you'd think at this price, you'd get more than a paper sleeve....but the tracks are great and not available for download!

West Norwood Cassette Library

Blonde On Blonde 12”
Teal Recordings

Following the critically acclaimed debut-release of Bob Bhamra's West Norwood Cassette Library alias, Teal Recordings presents Blonde On Blonde as its seminal release. This one is surely meant for the dance floor: an addictive bassline and a stomping house beat executed as if it were a hidden gem dug out in a New York pawnshop. The ubiquitous Ramadanman hits the flipside under his Pearson Sound moniker, with a rehash of 'Blonde On Blonde;' with subtle references to the original version David Kennedy takes the remix to quite different, but equally interesting, places. Lush early morning vibes! A must have! Support from Untold, 2562, Ben Ufo, Shortstuff, Mosca, Pariah."

Johnwaynes
Cut Out (City Raw) feat. Disconine 12"
Compost Black

Sizzling hot boogie house stuff from Portuguese duo Johnwaynes, combining a diverse blend of styles between acid house, full-on orchestra, disco funk and boogie. After a package of releases on labels like Brique Rouge and Bloop Recordings, Johnwaynes found their way to Compost Black Label, opening doors to further releases on labels like Mule Musiq, Endless Flight, Groovement or Optimus Discos. Their uplifting sets are a universe of possibilities with constantly exceeding style barriers and an assured, catchy energy.

Wolfram feat. Hercules & Love Affair

Fireworks 12"
Permanent Vacation

Fireworks is the first single from the highly-acclaimed self-titled debut album by Wolfram Eckert aka Wolfram. It features nobody else than one of the biggest disco pop phenomena of recent times on the mic: Hercules & Love Affair. On the Eurodance-infected song "Fireworks," Andy and his band colleague Kim Ann Foxman present a stunning, emotionally-charged performance, refurbishing the torch song genre with a contemporary touch of sparkling synthesizer melodies. The all-Swedish remix package features Axel Boman and Tiedye.

ASC
Advent/The Glow 12"
Pushing Red

"Longtime producer and innovator ASC steps to Pushing Red with two fantastic pieces of Detroit-tinged techno. He's well known in many circles for his wonderful drum & bass releases which more recently have brought him success on such labels Exit, Nonplus and his own Auxilary. He is also known for other tempos and this release is pure evidence that he is just as deadly in this realm as his drum & bass! 'Advent,' punishing 4/4 kicks things off before distorted, crushing bass and effects propel this monster into Detroit territory! While this tune is a monster, everything is perfectly layered and everything within the tune makes sense. Reverbed keys and delayed effects pull everything together! Definitely one for the fans who like their beats with a little teeth! 'The Glow' harks back to the glory days of Warp Records and mid 90's techno & electronic. A subtle 4/4 keeps the momentum going while the bassline could work out any sound system. Lush keys and pads sit perfectly on top, creating that wonderful melodic and nostalgia feel! Definitely one for fans of deeper, melodic techno!"

Skudge
Below/Phantom
Skudge

More killer output from the Skudge factory. "Below" is a brand new side of refined diva-haunted techno, while "Phantom" bites like it was designed specifically to turn Berghain inside out -- huge sound. TIP!

ROBAG WRUHME: Lampetee 12"
(MOVIDA 001EP)
Movida is Spanish and is the English word for 'moving.' With this first release we have moved something -- nobody else than Mr. Robag Wruhme (Wighnomy Brothers) has produced this first one. This track is really untypical for any production which Gabor ever did, but we liked that 'dubby' track so much that we really wanted to release it. Maybe the one or other will think back to good old Maurizio tracks. 'Lampetee' is a very old Greek 'song' with a pretty nice song-text which Gabor packed in that track with so many emotions. We were also happy as we get the 'o.k.' from nobody else than Nick Curly to do a remix for us. It has taken a long time, but finally the remix is so lovely, deep and groovy that we think it was good choice to wait so long. Support: Ricardo Villalobos, Onur Özer, Shinedoe, Thomas Melchior, Brendon Moeller, Matt Star, Daniel Mehlhart, Nick Curly, Frank Leicher.

Delano Smith
MIDNITE EP 12"
(3EEP107)
"A SPECIAL KIND" is classically constructed with filtered ASHFORD & SIMPSON samples ("STAY FREE") over a fat Detroit kick drum. "DEE'S GRUV" is on the atmospheric tip, "EXPLANATION" hits harder and faster, and deep house jam "TRUTH" wraps it all in one tight package. Don't sleep!

(IV24)
Three house edits taken from his mix, DIXON works his magic with JUNIOR BOYS'"HAZEL," the HENRIK SCHWARZ remix of CODE 718's "EQUINOX," and BEN KLOCK's "IN A WHILE." He was lucky enough to get single parts from all the original tracks and recreate them all. Beautiful stuff here. (INNERVISIONS)

(ZER 001EP)

Channel Zero is a new label run by Dead-O of Clouds with the aim of pushing new, forward looking music to new sets of ears around the globe, with no boundaries set as to the type of music being released. As anyone who has witnessed a Dead-O DJ set can attest, he is a man who knows how to connect the dots. Look out for more Channel Zero releases coming up this autumn. Spat / Era Of Black Holes Part 2 is a new release from Helsinki's Clouds, kicking off Channel Zero with two sides of bass-heavy modern-day electronica. Building on their template based on modern UK forms of bass music, the quirky edits and strong harmonic layers make these tracks yet another item of proof that Clouds are treading a path of their own. Act quickly, this awesome package won't hang around for long.
