Moritz Von Oswald Trio / Digital Mystikz

Restructure/Rebuild
Honest Jons

Musically, this new stepper appears to swell out of thin air. Immense and minimal, the propulsive groove of this monstrous child of Krautrock is overlain with the blues abstraction of Tikiman's guitar, the swing and effects of Marc Muellbauer's double bass, Delay's digressive steel percussion, and the otherworldly keys of Loderbauer and von Oswald. Mala's rebuild ratchets up the drama and dread. A barrage of bleeps rains down on a clopping drum pattern and steely synths. An immensely powerful record.

Listen to "Restructure 2" by the Moritz Von Oswald Trio here:





Arthur’s Landing

Arthur's Landing
Strut

Debut album comprising new versions of Arthur Russell songs, some known, some previously never heard. Produced and mixed by Brennan Green and the band’s Peter Zummo. New versions of Loose Joint’s “It's All Over My Face” and “In the Light Of the Miracle." Hot!

DMX Krew

The Game
Permanent Vacation

Permanent Vacation is very proud to present a four track EP with new material from DMX Krew. "The Game" is a great synth pop/new wave track in the best DMX Krew tradition with a massive Chicago bass line and Ed's distinctive vocals. In the "Dance Mix" the original gets "electronicized" by Ed himself for heavy dancefloor action. The flipside sees two analog boogie disco house tunes of the highest order.

Tom Trago

Voyage Direct (FS Green Remixes)
Rush Hour

This is a solid remix EP of tracks taken from Tom Trago's Voyage Direct (RH 025CD/LP). Man of the moment Motor City Drum Ensemble cooks up a solid house remix of "Passion" that is very classy! On the flip, Yuro & Trago toughen up "Brothers Of String" into a hypnotic house builder. Lastly, Actress transforms "Lost In The Streets Of NYC" into a classic Detroit workout, reminiscent of Infiniti or Anthony "Shake" Shakir.

Freak Seven

Nano Kids
Rush Hour

Rush Hour presents two tracks from Freak Seven, in both vox versions and instrumental versions.







Steve Poindexter

The State Of Shock

More quality acid house and techno from the MATHEMATICS label. The A is an extended version of "MANIAC" originally done in 1988 and released on the infamous TRAX label. Flip it over for new remixes by Chicago producers AREA and NOLEIAN REUSSE plus Belgium's DIMITRI PIKE.

V/A

Philpot Records 50
Philpot

The Philpot label's 50th release is dedicated to all of their artists, friends and supporters who have helped them to gain their reputation as a proper freestyle label over the years. This double vinyl-only compilation features Philpot artists, present and future, and covers every musical aspect that has encapsulated the label. Tim Toh and IKE had impressive debut releases on Philpot, so they share the A-side. Starting with "Floral," Tim sets the tone for the whole side. Raw, ruff piano riffs counterpoint a banging rhythm while the background shimmers. IKE strips it down to the basics with a dirty little piece of old school house music aptly titled "Throwbackmusic '94." On the B-side, Philpot's future artists Roman Rauch and Tom Ellis both funk up the whole thing. Roman starts with "Lemme Get There," a tune full of discoid-acid, a great chorus and an even bigger bass line. Tom Ellis increases the funk level even further. Breaks, guitar licks and a fat bass, plus some great vocals on top. The C-Side hosts the expressive pairing of The Reboot Joy Confession and Juju & Jordash. RJC's "O" is a claustrophobic storm of electric jazz, saw-toothed bass and a fucking message! Juju & Jordash charge into deep space with "Tanglefoot" -- strong textures fly into oblivion just barely held in check by a stubborn piano and a very vital bass line -- future classic! The D-side belongs to Move D alone for his blueprint of deepest electro called "Untitled Detroit." The classic instrumentation and the flawless arrangement makes for a very strong charmer.

SWAYZAK VS. GRETA COTTAGE WORKSHOP
Workshop Split EP 12"
Greta Cottage Workshop

"Two mixes not available digitally. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, poly lined sleeves, hand stamped labels by the artist. Limited edition of 350 copies... to prove a point, that vinyl is still worth making and is still desirable whether you got a turntable or not! Bored with the dull digital downloads of today's so called dance music scene, Swayzak & Greta Cottage Workshop bring you a 100% vinyl only release. This is the first release on vinyl for GCW and we hope to continue the series. It seems DJs only want to play what they get for free these days and this baby they have to pay for(!), so don't expect it in too many charts. Positive feedback from Michael Mayer, Damien lazarus, Patrice Baumel and Eddie Richards, to name a few. A seriously underground release from the always alternative thinkers Swayzak."

LIsten to "Seriecultur" here:



JAMIE WOON

NIGHT AIR (RAMADANMAN RX) 12"
Candent Songs

The original on the A-side is a downtempo gem of blue-eyed soul co-produced by BURIAL. On the flip the remix comes from dubstep/techno crossover don RAMADANMAN, who adds a subtle overlay of intricate percussion.

Listen to Ramadanman remix here:







DAS MOTH

MOON & WRONG 12"
Cutters

A chunky funky nu disco groover from former punk TIM SULLIVAN out on CUT COPY's own CUTTERS label. The B-side "WRONG" comes in both original and remix form. The remix by KINK & NEVILLE WATSON is "a proto-house dub..that goes deeper than deep." Described as YMO recording for DFA.







NEBRASKA

Four For Four EP 12"
Rush Hour

This is the fourth Nebraska EP for Rush Hour. With Four For Four, he delivers four good-spirited and uplifting house tracks. "This Is The Way" is an infectious, building disco groove which climaxes midway through. The other three tracks are also fun-loving, playful disco cut-ups in true Nebraska style that will make any crowd smile. Addictive stuff.

Listen to "Ras El Hanot" here:





EMMANUEL JAL

Kuar EP 12"
Innervisions

Two remixes of Sudanese musician Emmanuel Jal by Henrik Schwarz and Olof Dreijer (The Knife), originally compiled for the Sudan 365 -- a beat for peace campaign. In this campaign, several organizations across the globe have come together to promote international awareness for the referendum in January 2011 in which the people of South Sudan will vote to decide whether they wish to remain part of a united Sudan or whether they want to become an independent country.

Listen to the Henrik Schwarz remix here:







RICK WILHITE

Vibes New & Rare Music Part E 12"
Rush Hour

The fifth and last EP in the Vibes series features 3 tracks by new recording artists from Detroit. First up is Mark King, who gives us an emotive, deeply soulful vocal workout that lasts close to nine minutes. Detroiter DJ Raybone teams up with TJ as well as Rick Wilhite for two more deep Detroit late-night house tracks. The B-side tracks are exclusive to this 12" and won't be on the CD release.

Listen to "Can U Feel It" here:




FRITZ KALKBRENNER

Facing The Sun 12"
Suol

This is the debut single from Fritz Kalkbrenner's album Here Today Gone Tomorrow. His brother Paul Kalkbrenner and his long-time friend Sascha Funke are both on board for remixes, so expect nothing less than phat, dope shit! Facing The Sun was released as a non-vocal version on his first Suol EP, Wingman. He just couldn't resist recording some vocals on top. If you liked Wingman, you will love Facing The Sun.

Listen to "Facing the Sun" here:






TODD TERJE

JOZIF

BEATS IN SPACE 12"
Fist or Finger

Debut 12" on FIST OR FINGER done by JOZIF GOODWIN. A "bass driven slice of sinister analogue space funk complete with dark, ominous stabs" that fans of JAMIE JONES, PEZZNER or ROBERT JAMES will dig.

DONATO DOZZY

Posted by Oliver / Matt / Jordan, March 5, 2010 12:56pm | Post a Comment


HENRIK SCHWARZ/AME/DIXON

A Critical Mass Live EP 12"
Innervisions

As a result of 2009's "A Critical Mass" tour, Innervisions release two tracks recreated from the recorded live material. The A-side is based on the former Henrik Schwarz hit "Chicago." This new, eerie, bleepy techno version has a touch of early M-Plant production and was recorded during the Flow Festival in Helsinki in August 2009. "Berlin-Karlsruhe Express" is an aquatic Drexciyan house inferno by Henrik Schwarz/Âme/Dixon, and was the highlight of every live show.









ROBAG WRUHME

Dreiklangkrapriolen 12"
Musik Krause (MKR 031)

Robag Wruhme returns toting three nuggets which are somewhere between gentle hardcore with a weakness for horns, and a warm coolness. Dark, complex and almost avant garde. For all intents and purposes, a Lindenberg with Kafka-esque posing on a steamer, turned in the direction of the Ziller Valley. All three have a frugal consumption of a mere 4 liters per 100km, and there is still a healthy acceleration here that is lively and quick.








MARCEL DETTMANN

Dettmann Remixed 12"
Ostgut (OSTGUT 033EP)

In anticipation of Marcel Dettmann's debut full-length, Ostgut Ton presents a remix package of four original tracks, courtesy of Norman Nodge and Wincent Kunth. From the very first bar of Norman Nodge's remix of "Shift," an urgent, pumping charge of fizzing electricity is let loose, letting the arrangement simply flow. More raw energy powers also are throughout his remix of "Unrest." Taking a recognizably metallic Dettmann-forged synth pattern, Nodge's frenetic yet respectfully withheld structure guides you sure and steady through the smokescreen.

Listen to Unrest (Norman Nodge Remix):


LULA CIRCUS
Blumenholz 12"
Acker (ACKER 017EP)

"To sound the bell for the slowly but constantly sprouting spring also in a musical respect, the crew from Acker called for support from the Mediterranean sceneries of Italy: The two operators of the Lula Circus have already pricked up the ears of lovers of flamboyant tech house tunes with their recent releases on Resopal. Matching the season, they are now back to send up the temperatures on dance floors again. 'Waiting For The Sun' to come impatiently, this tracks frisks along on a bouncy bass and prompts dreamy spring fever with breezy- warm panpipe sounds. After that, 'Tears And Ice' makes quite clear where it goes to already during the first bars: Straight ahead! Beyond whipping hi hats and cutting snare impacts, slowly but constantly a piano loop clears its path to the surface. Later on the smoky and outrageously casual rap of a lady adds on and prepares a really explosive departure. The panpipes from the A-side make a perfect meal for Mr. Mollono.bass and so the euphony, in which he launches himself into a remix on the other side of this vinyl, can clearly be heard. Besides his typical, extensive percussion repertoire, also his hypnotic style is unmistakable. Finally the 'Lipstick Gang' comes around in a crunchy and reduced manner, this time it's the rhythmically emphasized voice of a male lending this track a distinct easiness." Acker



MIRKO LOKO

Seventynine Remixes 12"
Cadenza (CADENZA 045EP)

Cadenza presents a special remix package of tracks from Mirko Loko's Seventynine, featuring Carl Craig and Ricardo Villalobos. Craig's remix of "Love Harmonic" stretches to nearly 12 minutes and, following a long, gradual build-up of rolling congas, trademark C2 sawtooth drones slice through a haze of strings. Villalobos' remix of "Takhtok" places the chanting children's choir of the original at center stage, framing them with a velvety curtain of fuzzy synthesizers and shirred, crumpled beats. This is Ricardo at his amniotic best.

Listen to Carl Craig's Love Harmonic remix:








MARCELLO NAPOLETANO

Chicago-Detroit-New York 12"
Quintessential (QUINTESSE 011EP)

Marcello Napoletano has made his name on the circuit: his first 12" and his awesome album on Mathematics show his love of analog instruments and old school house. These 4 tracks reference his early influences and his much-loved sound: Chicago - Detroit - New York! Quintessentials tracks are raw, but they have soul, and that's why Napoletano fits in with this label 100%.









THE REVENGE

Looking up to You 12"
Motor City Drum Ensemble (MCDE1204)

THE REVENGE loops a popular sample into a slow burner that maintains disco vibes while being a heads down house track. GROOVEMAN SPOT on the flip, offering a more trippy version with filters over the main synth & shuffled snares to skip along to.













MARK PRITCHARD

Elephant Dub 12"
Deep Medi MEDI025

This music veteran (JEDI KNIGHTS, HARMONIC 313, GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS, RELOAD, TROUBLEMAN) drops a thudding, dub heavy anthem in the making, while B-side "HEAVY AS STONE" utilizes a beautiful, soulful female vocal over a lush, abstract track pushing future garage sounds forward.

Listen to Elephant Dub:








TENSNAKE 

Coma 12"
Permanent Vacation (PERMVAC049)

This sampler incl. three exclusive tracks taken from the cd comp: "IF THIS IS HOUSE I WANT MY MONEY BACK," Burners "COMA CAT," "NEED YOUR LOVIN," and "GET IT RIGHT" are all on this house meets disco record. Plus a remix from 6TH BOROUGH PROJECT (CRAIG SMITH & THE REVENGE).

Listen to Coma:







GLIMPSE

If I Was Your Girl 12"
Crosstown Rebels (CRM 057EP)

Crosstown Rebels presents a taste of the sublime debut album from Glimpse. Spiced up with warm, luscious pads and delirious vocals, "If I Was Your Girl" reinvigorates Glimpse's current sound while skillfully imprinting his endearing signature. The original version will only see the light of day on the album, while this EP brings an alternative "Glimpse Beats" mix to the table. Simon Baker reworks the track into a melodic, piano-laden affair, with stabbing epic chords.
