Gene Hunt

Chicago Dance Tracks Pt 1 DLP
Rush Hour

Part one of two 2LPs of never-before-released tracks from the archives of Gene Hunt -- rare, newly-unearthed Chicago house barn-stormers from the '80s. Gene Hunt shares his ancient treasures with us -- up to now, this stuff resided only on reels! Featuring a truly all-star line-up. TIP! The tracks included here are all rough, uncut versions, oftentimes homemade drum computer jams that never made it to final production at a professional studio. They represent early output of the artists involved, some tracks dating back as early as 1982-1983. Besides unreleased tracks by Mr. Fingers, Steve Poindexter, Farley J.M.F. and Steve Hurley, the compilation also includes reworks and original versions that were never properly released, like Ron Hardy's original version of "Sensation" or Mike Dunn's rework of Gherkin Jerks' (Larry Heard) "Acid Indigestion." The vinyl release holds seven tracks, all presented in their original length and includes one vinyl-only bonus track, Steve Poindexter's "Betsy Smithe." All tracks have been restored and remastered from the original, first generation reel-to-reel tapes. The artwork shows original Chicago flyers and the release comes with an insert with artist interviews, a Gene Hunt interview by Jackmaster Farley and original photos from back in the day.

Mark E
Stone Breaker 2LP
Spectral

This is the debut album by prolific UK music producer Mark E. The album format doesn't lend itself to four-on-the-floor electronic dance music. There's no recreation of the seamless, intoxicating thrill one finds in a night out dancing, and less savvy folk might find the idea of listening to an hour's worth of repetitive, 7-minute+ machine music to be, frankly, boring. But they probably haven't listened to Mark E's Stone Breaker, which is riveting in its primal simplicity. From the opening gut-punching kick drums of "Archway" through the ecstatic triplets of closer "The Day," Stone Breaker means business. It's a record of pace and determination, full of classic house touchstones and steady, almost militant tempos, a reminder that electronic dance music is supposed to be forceful, if not altogether mean. Not once does it break its step or err from its course -- it owns you, your body, and your mind from beginning to end. Of course, it wasn't supposed to be an album. When Wolverhampton-reared, Birmingham-based Mark found himself with some free time in mid-2010, he hit a stride in his productions, and an assortment of tracks that could have easily wound up on various 12"s started to pile up. Almost by accident, Stone Breaker came into existence, full of confident, darkroom house that owes as much to Chicago as it does to the cosmos. Percussion-wise, there's not much diversity here, but that's really the point: bombarding your inner cranium with hypnotic, earthquaking acid loops, their hi-hats and snares sounding more like weaponry than musical instruments. But, there's also plenty of warmth -- buoyant, spine-tickling jazz chords, floaty, staring-at-the sun disco dances and static-y, soul-drenched curveballs, all of which elevate Stone Breaker from a great set of DJ tracks to a great set of tracks for anyone, anywhere.

J.T.C.

Creep Acid DLP
Jak Nation

The second album to be unveiled from Nation is called Creep Acid from J.T.C., who has recorded with Spectral, M>O>S, Relief, Crème Organization, and more. Creep Acid carries the resonance of future past, as J.T.C. was driven by thoughts about the lifespan of many things. Words directly taken from the artist for this release: "When I was a teenager I had to sell my Micro-Moog in order to pay for some serious and necessary repairs to my car. This reality would keep me away from having any new instruments for years. Luckily, my friend Rodger Devine taught me how to compose and record music using my personal computer and tracker software. Years later, I launched a career with that very music. I was grateful for having had the chance to make music without much more that the computer, but all the while I knew that I eventually wanted to go back to analog synthesizers. I wanted to make sounds with subtle sonic variation. I wanted to write tracks with multiple phasing phrases, and to improvise. I started to accumulate some machines that I've always wanted; a TR-909, a TB-303, and an SH-101 that I picked up during a tour in Tokyo. I assembled my studio in an apartment that I shared with D'Marc Cantu in Ypsilanti, MI. Since I wanted to convey a live, improvised feel, I wasn't programming pattern sequences or writing songs with distinct parts. I achieved this goal because D'Marc was kind enough to lend me a hand when I needed it on the machines. When, eventually, we collaborated in that studio, we became 2AM/FM. We wrote the EPs Pt. 1, Pt. 2, and the tracks 'Don't Front!!!,' and 'Electronic Justice' there. For years, I shared my living space with fellow young people. Though I didn't go to college, I did my fair share of partying and consider those my 'college days.' This was my environment at the time that I recorded Creep Acid. I was making music in a haze of smoke. I was indulgent and pleased. Acid house is what drove me to these machines, but once I got there, I was only thinking about enjoying the fruits of improvisation and crude techniques."

The Mythical Beasts
Communicate 12"
Internatinal Feel

Formed in 2007 in a dark cave somewhere in Brixton, The Mythical Beasts are Felix Dickinson and Toby Tobias. "Communicate" is the long-lost bastard brother of Jan Hammer's "Crockett's Theme," so it's time to roll up the sleeves on your suit jacket, throw away your socks and head off into the Miami Underworld with a 2011 twist. Remixes come courtesy of electro-funk newcomer Alphabet City and an abstract floor-filling gem from Das Volt.

Enjoy The Silence Vol. 2 LP+CD
Mule Electronic

Mule Electronic presents their second ambient compilation, featuring Mule regulars such as Koss, Lawrence, Terre Thaemlitz, Sebastian Mullaert (Minilogue) and newcomers such as Kassem Mosse, NSI and Porn Sword Tobacco. The album is kicked off by Koss' "Voyage," which is aesthetic and beautiful, followed by Lawrence's "Floating," which is transient and melancholic. "Krakow 6" from Tobias Freund's NSI is reminiscent of John Cage or Morton Feldman. After you listen to producer Glitterbug's track, you will fall in love with his warm and cinematic sound. Probably the highlight of this album is Terre Thaemlitz's remix of John Cage: it's very beautiful and musical. Next, Japan's Fumiya Tanaka's freestyle project Individual Orchestra features a rare type of ambient music. There's some trippy stuff from Sebastian Mullaert, classical ambient from Italian producer Donato Dozzy and two Lawrence tracks, because the label couldn't decide which one was more beautiful. Seltene Erden is Kassem Mosse's new project, and it is fresh, downtempo stuff, reminiscent of Global Communication or Larry Heard. Lastly is Swedish experimental producer Porn Sword Tobacco with an absolutely perfect ending.

Vakula
Picture Of You 12”
Dekmantel

After well-hailed releases on trusted imprints like Quintessentials, Uzuri and Firecracker, Vakula created this comprehensive 5-tracker ranging from moody deep house to fierce acid and from melancholic house mixed with jazz to a vocal banger. This release covers a wide spectrum of electronic music, so pay attention for some Eastern European brilliance. This EP is only the warm-up for a full Vakula album to be released on Dekmantel. On yellow vinyl.

Transept
TRSPT001
Dronehenge

Debut LP from UK prog-drone trio is heady mix of beautiful yet dour space rock that recalls PINK FLOYD & TANGERINE DREAM with soundtrack-like bliss. Melodic but with grit and bite, it's for fans of FLYING SAUCER ATTACK, EXPO 70 & DEMDIKE STARE. 4 stars in MOJO! One-time pressing!

Purchase Transept - TRSPT001 here


Joy O
WADE IN
Hotflush

Since his debut anthem "HYPH MNGO" was dropped in 2009, JOY ORBISON (now JOY O) has been making waves globally. Taking a more straightforward, classic house approach, "WADE IN" has rolling, acidic basslines and "JELS" is full of uplifting melodies.

Purchase Joy O - Wade In here



Lawrence
Sorry Sun
Smallville

With his first release on his co-owned Smallville label, Lawrence, aka Peter M. Kersten, celebrates another tribute to more than 20 years of house music. Beyond his club influences, Kersten was mainly driven by slow Detroit jazz from the early '70s and classical minimal music which colors the palette of this EP. With "Sorry Sun," Lawrence invites us on another adventure into the miracle of a cozy dancefloor, letting only the music shine and the people close their eyes and smile.

Purchase Lawrence - Sorry Sun here



BNJMN
Plastic World
Rush Hour

Rush Hour is pleased to announce the debut release of a young producer from the UK, BNJMN. His adventurous electronic sound is one not heard in a while. While on one hand his music has a traditional sound (early '90s UK), BNJMN does create a world of his own due to the versatility in his productions. It is this versatility that creates an exciting hybrid sound, therefore pushing the envelope and making it sound very current -- futuristic, even.

Purchase BNJMN - Plastic World here


Norman Nodge
The Happenstance
Ostgut Ton

Norman Nodge offers up his first full EP for Ostgut Ton with three contemplative tracks."The Happenstance" is a warm and fresh embodiment of '80s wave electronic, like a classic Carpenter score. "Body To Body" floats into spacious, acidic zones, taking us in a very different yet equally rewarding direction. An ornate exercise in reduction, "Breakdown" is a slow and measured display of Nodge's unique synthesized visions -- a hint of what's to come next from this talented producer.

Photek
AVALANCHE
Photek Prodcutions

A bonafied success of the 90's drum & bass/jungle scene returns to the bass frontier with this genre bending single. B-side "101" is an epic track of cinematic scope that takes a slo-mo house approach for a sensual feel good vibe to sweep late night dancefloors.

Purchase Photek - Avalanche here



Actress
HARRIER ATTK
Nonplus

Coming on strong like APHEX TWIN on electro crack (no surprise from the frontman of label WERK DISCS, home of LONE, LUKID, & ZOMBY), the A-side is the frenetic, hyperkinetic sibling to the hazy smokers paradise of B-side "GERSHWIN." Equal parts sublime and austere.

D’Marc Cantu
Set Free
M>O>S Recordings

Next up in the 10'' series on M>O>S Recordings is the solo project of D'Marc Cantu. D' Marc delivers two melodic, sexy and hypnotizing house tracks. "Set Free" opens with a hard-hitting, flanged bass sound and a devastating kick, slowly evolving into a dreamy, mysterious, atmospheric track. "Tonight" is a hypnotic and haunting late-night dancefloor track, combining stretched melodic stabs, an ultra-deep bass line and D' Marc's whispering vocals taking you down into the eerie underworld of his soul.

James Blake
LIMIT TO YOUR LOVE 10”
Atlas

His stunning cover of FEIST & CHILLY GONZALES showcases the melancholy soul of JAMES' voice mixed with moments of shuddering bass and a deliberate manipulation of silent spaces. This is truly a stunning piece of modern music. Do not miss out on this! 1-sided.
Listen to "Limit To Your Love" here:






Most Of This Moment
ISOLEE REMIXES
Most Of This Moment

Beautiful deep house 12". Melodious beats and pulsating rhythms mixed with some NY garage-styled female vocals. Catchy but deep and underground, too. Comes with two remixes from ISOLEE (remix and dub). Limited (500x) hand stamped white label 12".






Space Dimension Controller
TEMPORARY THRILLZ EP D12”

Maxxi & Zeus
AMERICAN DREAMER 12”
International Feel

The first track is a widescreen cinemascape inspired by multi-layered head music, perfect for a deep cult-like trip. The flip's "MZ MEDLEY" is a raw & exciting experiment through the days of the late 70s and cut n paste style disco medleys. Support from FRANCOIS K, PRINS THOMAS, DICKY TRISCO, & more!







Lone
EMERALD FANTASY TRACKS DLP
Magic Wire

MAGIC WIRE presents the second release on the label from co-founder LONE. From the massive slab of piano stab-lead Detroit-inspired techno of opening cut "CLOUD 909" to the primitive 808/BLACK DOG inspired house of "MOON BEAM HARP," this covers a broad spectrum of styles.
Listen to "Petrcane Beach" here:




Mark E
ESCAPE 12”
Vibrations

The first release from CHRISTOPHER GALLOWAY & PIERS HARRISON's VIBRATIONS imprint comes from the always-dependable MARK E, who drops 2 killer jams. The title track is a bassline driven banger that also sees a remix by ROOTS UNIT. "MIDNIGHT FIRES" is a more techno influenced cut for early mornings.







Vakula
NEMA 12”
3rd Strike

Coming off his FIRECRACKER EP, VAKULA brings this 5 track EP. The title cut features dreamy vocals, "NERVE" is like a future jazz-funk vibe, "ALL THE SAME" on the flip is a nice percussive groove, and "HOOPA LOOPA" holds soulful loops & soul-jazz touches. "BEAT JA" is a DETROIT influenced cut.

Listen to "Blind Night Errand" here:





Arp.101
FLUSH 12”
Eglo

ARP.101 returns with another jam packed 12" with 3 diverse productions! The title track has received heavy support from BENJI B and runs with tripped out synth work. "KORG-A-TRON" is a serious head noddin' joint that would fit on the "PRODUCER" series. "AC!D" is a crazy tune DAM-FUNK style. Hot!








Morphosis
WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED 12”
MOS

This limited release brings a couple of remixes of some MORPHOSIS heat. 1st NWAQ turns out a hell of a dub for "DIRTY MATTER" that's a relentless 7.5 minutes of bang. On the flip JUST FOR ONE DAY remixes "ANDROIDS AMONG US" and creates a serious killer using the core elements of the original.

Posted by Oliver / Matt / Jordan, February 4, 2010 03:43pm | Post a Comment

Four Tet
There Is Love and You
Domino

Kieren Hebden embraces the sharp and brazen musicality of his 2003 album Rounds, but with a more club-friendly feel. Hebden's
interdisciplinary sonic collage is at full force here, with melodious house, 80s synth design, repetitive minimalism a la Cluster and Steve Reich, italo disco, and dusty jazz records chopped up and redefined. (MT)

Listen - "Angel Echoes":




King Midas Sound

Waiting For You
Hyperdub

This debut very much sounds like a ghostly carnival procession out of a psyche ward -- and in line are wayward dub daydreamers and heart-broken lovers rockers'. A deeply narcotic album reminiscent of Tricky's Maxinquaye, crooked hip hop nodding to RZA's darkest productions, with male female vocals densely lacing the songs in smoked paranoia. A magnificent killer of noir-like austere grandeur, a modern classic. (MT)


Listen - "Outer Space":




Pop Ambient 2010
Kompakt

Kompakt opens 2010 with the latest in their sound-sculpting series. Highly recommended! Exclusive tracks from Wolfgang Voight, Dettinger, Thomas Fehlmann, Marsen Jules and many others provide a shimmering concrete soundtrack to a twilight in an icy winter scene.
(MT)
Listen - Wolfgang Voigt - "Zither und Horn":





Magda
Fabric 49
Fabric

The dark queen of mnml on Richie Hawtin's M_nus label presents a patchwork yet flawless blend of tasty techno blip-funk for Fabric's well-lauded series. Spooky prog-horror jams from Goblin appear in a
relentless trail of burners by Farben, Isomer Transition, Christian Vogel, Yello, and Magda's own cuts. Killer dancefloor-fillers. (MT)

Listen - Gaiser - "Mfnstmp":

 




Scuba
Sub:Stance
Hotflush

Scuba operates at the cutting edge of the whole dubstep/techno/house/bass axis, and this mix boasts a vast number of HEAVY artists contributing to 70 minutes of undulating rave-emotion and chest-caving big room vibes. Featuring Joker, Surgeon, Joy Orbison, Shackleton.
(MT)

Preview 9 minutes of Sub:stance:






Lindstrom & Christabelle
Real Life Is No Cool
Smalltown Supersound

Scandinavia's space cadet number one, Lindstrom, drops an album with gal pal Christabelle aka Isabelle H. Sandoo, whose vocals propel Lindstrom's productions into pop-realization from outer space. Features previously released tracks from 12s, and the highlight are the bonus 7 tracks with edits from Idjut Boys, Prins Thomas, Sally
Shapiro
and others. Psyched-out house, crystalline 80s sparkle, and hi-NRG jet propulsed disco-trance sugar coat this record into a much-welcomed release opening 2010.

Mark E
Works 2005-2009
Merc

This disc compiles 8 of Mark E's finest tracks from said dates, including edits of Labelle, Gabor Szabo, and Birth Control. A fine lesson in tripped-out hypno-psychedelic effects, and slowed
down/reduced tempo arrangements for the quirky disco house dancefloor. Fans of Trus' Me, Lindstrom, Tom Trago and Theo Parrish will definitely dig these heady deep grooves.

Monolake
Silence
Monolake

Monolake has consistently been at the forefront of exploratory and experimental techno for the entirety of this decade, blending hi-end
complexity with a personal and ultimately human vision of sound construction that goes beyond the academic to evoke rarified feelings of technofied wonderment. A stunning album meant to be heard in 3-D!

Convextion
Convextion
Down Low Music

Holy fook! Unearthed from some warehouse are the very last copies of this holy grail of dub techno. If youre into Basic Channel, Maurizio, Model 500, Deepchord, etc, etc, this record has most likely been on your
wish list. And now you can grab it on CD, too. Gerard Hanson, aka Convextion, has provided us with some of the most indulgent,
trance-like, soulful techno that simply needs to be shared and heard.
