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.

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)

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.

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.
