Ugly Edits 



Hello world, they're here. Unavailable for like, ever, now in one package complete with a hand-painted cover. Theo Parrish is one of Detroit’s most wanted exports especially in the past few years, but not too long ago, like many future techno-rebels that came before him, he was just another hustling Detroit DJ trying to make waves in the shadow of the city’s rich techno history. His indelible mark on the underground were highly limited, hand-labeled bootleg edit records of some of his favorite classic funk and disco tunes. The series of edits appropriately titled Ugly Edits, became highly desired rarities on the DJ and collector’s circuit. Rarities no more... as everyone should and can now hear his versions of Jil Scott, Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, Freddie Hubbard, and Sylvester edits just to name a few somewhere other than YouTube. Cool.

Yoko Duo
Behaving Like A Widower LP
Fauxpas

It's impossible to describe without metaphors what happens when listening to the debut album Behaving Like A Widower by Yoko Duo. Holger Zilske and August Landelius draw bright paintings with cool colors, framed by a mosaic of delicate glitches. This music comes without any irony or cynicism and guarantees a prominent place in the gallery of soulful legacy of the electronica genre for the Yoko Duo.

ROMAN FLUGEL
How To Spread Lies 12"
DIAL

The many faces of Roman Flügel (aka Eight Miles High aka Soylent Green aka ½ of Alter Ego) have always been one of the main influences of the eclecticism of Dial Records. Besides his inspiring DJ sets, which were always steps ahead of their time, Flügel's productions have been the key to a better world in modern music. Whether it was techno, house, jazz or ambient, Flügel's research into sound and structure has always been an overwhelming experience.




BJORKE & BARFOD
Superbacon 12"
MIRAU

Copenhagens Tomas Barfod and Kasper Bjørke hardly need introducing… for over a decade, they have been making music, together and separately, with releases on some of the most respected labels around. Still, their first release under their new moniker, Bjørke & Barfod -- their first 12″ together in years -- has a new sound perhaps best described as symphonic disco-trance and definitely marks a turning point in their collaboration. Maybe it`s the fact that they have had a few years' break from working together in the studio, while taking time to focus on solo outputs and, in Barfod's case, band life with WhoMadeWho; or maybe it's because they discovered some ancient herb in the tent of some hippie at Roskilde Festival after they played a marathon this summer; in either case, Superbacon EP has a genuine freshness to it that has already gotten some serious hype. Superbacon is an epic bigroom track, still with enough livedrums and sexy house elements to make it work in smaller clubs as well. In other words -- a stealth “debut” release on Mirau.The remix of Cauliflower comes from Brooklyn's finest, Runaway (DFA), that brings rave back in a big way. The EP is named after the new party concept that Bjørke & Barfod take to the clubs around the globe representing the finest from the Danish clubscene… Because as you all know, crispy pork is the prize export of Denmark.
