    1. A. Rhyze - Free (Louie Vega Remix) (Danny Krivit 7” Edit)
    2. B. John Davis & The Monster Orchestra - Love Magic (Danny Krivit 7'' Edit)

    With interest in Disco as strong as ever, we continue to mine the SAM Records catalogue for Disco treasures. “Free” by Rhyze is one of the catalogue’s lesser known titles, but with its inspired rolling horn hits sprinkled throughout the song and its funk based organ and keys, it’s got all the elements for a current hit among disco and house afficionados. World renowned and Grammy award winning producer Louie Vega recognized this a few years back even before disco was back in the spotlight and gave it a massive injection of modern dancefloor energy. And now the universally recognized “King Of the Edit” Danny Krivit has put his unique musical touch on this disco funk jam. On the B Side is another disco treasure from legendary Phillie based producer John Davis. “Love Magic” had all the memorable and classic elements of the late 70’s disco era. Produced at Sigma Sounds in Phillie, the song is embued with lush strings, over-the-top funky lead guitar and throbbing bass combined with sulty female vocals singing to one of the John’s consistently superb tunes. Danny Krivit brings out the hottest elements for the special 45 RPM 7" release.

    Recently voted” as “The best British number one from British soil” by the readers of UK newspaper “The Guardian, “West End Girls” by British duo Pet Shop Boys is an all-time synth-pop classic that comes in a 2×12” package with two mixes from legendary Dutch producer remixer Ben Liebrand, a 2020 version from UK house hero Michael Gray, and a new mix by Italian wizard Moplen. The 2 Liebrand mixes offer an acoustic variation on the 80’s synth theme, expanding on the luscious string section, providing a canvas for extensive trumpet solos. The result is the ‘Ben Liebrand “9 Course Suite”. Also provided is the ‘Ben Liebrand Nu-Disco Remix’ with a more laidback feeling featuring a funky acoustic bass line. Michael Gray adds his classy percussive beats with a more sustained feel letting the melodies take over, yet retaining the PSB charm, whilst multi track guru Moplen stays true to the original Bobby Orlando PSB production. Mastering was done at the famous Abbey Road Studio’s in London.

    chalo is a nascent interdisciplinary creative community and collaborative platform featuring the work of ethnically South Asian artists. With a long term aim to strengthen cross-cultural bonds by showcasing the vast breadth of talent within the community, the first volume features artists with heritage in Pakistan, India and Kashmir. Net proceeds from the compilation are going towards the Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) and Zindagi Trust.

    The first volume of chalo comprises of Pakistani and Indian artists across classical composers and underground hip-hop, visual artists and videographers, journalists and illustrators. It is a multi-tiered release featuring a video, podcast, print series and, most importantly, a music compilation.

    Featuring an all-star cast of artists like that range from the cerebral (V.S Narasimhan), to editations on immigrant culture (Riz Ahmed), to post-modern pop (Kavya), to Kashmiri hip-hop (Ahmer), floating left-field electronica (Nabihah Iqbal) to meditative jazz (Sarathy Korwar) to tunes that will leave you sweating on the dance floor (MadstarBase), chalo vol. 1 showcases the diversity and musical range of South Asian artists. It dispels the notion that an often overlooked culture can be painted by one brush, a single narrative.

    The compilation will be accompanied by a video piece that gives insight to the plight of artists of colour whilst also highlighting the unique cultural melting pot of influences. This ethos will be extended to an eight-episode podcast where discussions between artists from various parts of India and Pakistan will meditate on discussions of caste, class, politics, race and, amongst it all, the meaning of art. This will be released after the compilation’s launch on November 6th, with the album artwork by Shweta Sharma.

    The net proceeds from the chalo project will be split between the Human Rights Law Network and Zindagi Trust which will contribute to the ongoing initiatives they are working on, including Rights to Food, Dalit Rights, Educational Reform, Women’s Justice and Empowerment.

    "chalo stems from recognising that there’s a gap in the media we consume. Despite global political, industrial and technological significance, culturally, South Asia’s status is hidden in the margins. With a long term to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations while also elevating and showcasing peoples respective talents, چلو chalo aims to build, however we can, between people.”

    Two Hot Creations titans will team up with a renowned singer-songwriter next month, as Lee Foss, Detlef and Anabel Englund collaborate on the two-track Thunder & Lightning. Set for release on 20th November, the EP marks the trio’s debut collaboration and sees Lee and Anabel return to the label for the first time in six years.

    Thunder & Lightning sets the tone, with hard-hitting drums residing atop a subtle underlying bassline. Anabel’s stunning vocals soon stir up feelings of intensity and resilience, before the infectious kick-hat backbone comes back in to form an emotive, dancefloor cut. I Have Synthed completes proceedings in a manner reminiscent of its title, featuring synth-heavy groove, acid-twinged bass and Anabel’s enigmatic vocals once more.

    An eminent figure in Hot Creations’ musical history, USA mainstay Lee Foss has been a figurehead of contemporary house for nearly a decade. In recent times, his Repopulate Mars label has welcomed an array of globally-loved artists including Michael Bibi, Sonny Fodera and more besides, whilst also championing new talent from producers such as Deeper Purpose and Ben Hemsley. House heavyweight Detlef has amassed a worldwide following in a career spanning nearly a decade. A previous Beatport Number 1 record holder for Swagon, this year marked a particularly special milestone with the launch of his own label, Issues. Such a feat simply adds to the Greek-natives illustrious reputation, having cemented his place in electronic music with stunning releases on the likes of Hot Creations, Repopulate Mars, Relief and Moon Harbour to name a few.

    3. B2. Mr. Lee’s Trophy Theme

    As the dancefloor continues to be out of bounds you can rely on Freerange to bring you house music which runs that little bit deeper and more soulful, lifting spirits during these darker times. Following hot on the heels of Laroye’s Be The Change, the label offer another heartwarming release, this time from Brooklyn-based artist Greg Paulus. Perhaps better known as one half of No Regular Play, Greg has appeared on labels as diverse as Soul Clap, Let’s Play House, Ghostly International and Kompakt.

    For the City Movements EP Greg has delivered three brilliant originals which showcase his talents as a trumpet player, vocalist and producer. Opener Breezy Point comes correct with Greg’s vocals coming to the fore backed by a crunchy house groove, a solid, analogue bassline and simmering Moog synths.

    Flipping over we have Do You Love Me? co-produced with fellow Brooklyn artist Taylor Bense, and which takes a jazzier approach with Greg’s filtering trumpet arrangements adding a warm, organic depth to the track whilst the Prince-inspired house groove keeps the funk factor running high.

    Closing out the release we have Mr. Lee’s Trophy Theme in which Greg and co-producer Teddy Stuart reimagine the scene as a certain film director arrives to receive his latest award. There’s plenty of attitude, a hint of sleaze and a dash of humour but above all else we have bags of soul emanating from within the layers of warm pads, Wurli chords, trumpet lines and hooky vocal.

    Longstanding house duo Prok | Fitch make a much-anticipated debut on Hot Creations with Tease. The two-track EP sees them collaborate with London vocalist Kyozo and continues a stunning 2020 that has seen them release on Repopulate Mars and Solid Grooves already this year.

A swinging 4x4 bassline powers alongside punchy drums, before Kyozo’s lyrical solo adds an infectious energy to the track’s choppy underlying rhythm. Smack showcases a stripped-back, dubby approach as rounded kicks blend into minimal-leaning bleeps, whilst an echoing vocal repeats “smack” to take us straight through to peak-time dancing territory. One of contemporary house music’s most-established pairings, Prok | Fitch continue to carve out an impressive standing in the electronic music sphere.

    12. F2. Joseph Capriati - Let's Change The World

    Metamorfosi is the story of Joseph Capriati’s artistic evolution, the result of both personal and musical development, maturing influences and meeting his heroes - an emotional message which needs to be felt.

    From the album’s opening moments, the slow-release, acid euphoria of ‘Improvvisazione’ and the stunning synth melodies of ‘Beautiful Morning’, Capriati’s cards are on the table. The three years since his last album have seen Joseph embark on a journey of self-reflection, broadening his creative spectrum and incorporating more genres and moods. “It is definitely not a pure dancefloor record”, he says of Metamorfosi, “it is diverse, which for me is the spirit of an album. I really hope that people will get the message.”

    By releasing the album on his own label Redimension, any barriers that previously lay between Capriati and his most authentic self are gone. This is at once the sound of the Neapolitan techno artist today, as an eleven-year-old discovering House music, as a world-touring DJ and as Joseph at home.

    As the rousing keys and pulse of ‘Beautiful Morning’ fade out, in comes one of the record’s main themes, collaboration. ‘Spirit Brothers’, made with the legendary Louie Vega, is a modern spin on classic House. “The track with Louie Vega is very symbolic for me personally, as it was him and Masters At Work who have inspired me since the beginning.” Through their storied six-hour, vinyl-only sets together at Cielo, New York, Joseph and Louie have fostered a special relationship which
    translates onto this infectious track. ‘Love Changed Me’, a joint work with Byron Stingily and Eric Kupper, two more true icons of House music, appears later in the record and also fulfills Joseph’s lifelong wish to work with timeless producers and vocalists.

    With the supreme drum programming and rolling groove of ‘Anything Is Possible’, the balance shifts to a more muscular sound with a few elements revolving in perfect harmony. ‘Dust’ restores the uplifting tone, conjuring images of Joseph entrancing a crowd at sunrise - fitting given the track was made after Joseph’s first experience at Burning Man in 2018 and represents all the emotions he lived in those desert days. ‘Psychic Journey’ and ‘Goa’ share this cosmic feeling but pack it with extra weight for the peak-time hours.

    It would not be a Joseph Capriati full-length without an ode to his beloved hometown of Napoli, a city with a rich history in dance music culture and beyond. ‘New Horizons’ featuring James Senese represents the essence of Napoli. The single contains a techno version which stands for Joseph and the original version which stands for James Senese, a pioneer of Neapolitan blues and funk for more than half a century. In Joseph’s words, “this track has a priceless value and for me has a great meaning. We didn’t want to make a pure techno track, because it would turn out to be trivial together with James Senese’s saxophone and his voice. The idea was to make an electronic track, and it turned out to be quite trip-hop, very 90s, in a similar style to Massive Attack or Tricky.”

    ‘New Horizons’ sets up the cinematic, IDM-influenced title-track ‘Metamorfosi’. If any one track on this LP could alone characterise its concept, this would be it. ‘Metamorfosi’ could stun a packed dancefloor at the right moment but that is not its reason to be. It is purely and simply an expression of Joseph’s musical vision, a snapshot of countless years buying, playing and living music.

    The album’s final stretch includes the vibrant ‘It’s All About Love’, the stand-out song made with Eric Kupper and Byron Stingily called ‘Love Changed Me’ and, finally, a broken-beat cut which provides one last emotional peak. With an album tour and special, Capriati vinyl sets coming up soon, the message of Metamorfosi will come to life in a different way. The message is now with you.

    Born in Croydon, UK in 1960 and working in Switzerland for decades, Michal Turtle has led a
    storied career as a composer, arranger, technician and producer, consistently aligned with some
    of the most exciting bands and projects within the realms of pop and experimental music. A figure
    as masterful in the realm of expansive ambient recordings as advertising jingles, it’s only in recent
    years that Michal’s solo productions have gained acclaim and a cult following that continues to
    grow ever wider.

    Turtle made a long-awaited return earlier in 2020 with the extended ‘On a Canvas Lived a Baby’, a
    one-sided twelve of new material released on Planisphere Editorial. Now, the Basel based label
    invites a diverse and international cross-section of electronic musicians to reinterpret the artist’s
    back-catalogue, each delivering a thoughtful remix driven by the same sense of curiosity,
    exploration and genre-blurring that Turtle himself helped pioneer. Each track on the remixes
    collection was originally recorded between 1980 and 1985, in between Turtle’s regular tours with
    established bands.

    Opening the collection, Laurel Halo adopts her LH alias for a textural and tripping revisit to
    ‘Phantoms of Dreamland’, transporting the haunting original to a hyper-detailed alternate
    dimension. Zoning back in, Neue Grafik finds typically eclectic form with ‘Men in Green’, turning
    the dials and blending ideas as if tuning between the emerging musical scenes that defined
    Turtle’s early-eighties life in Camden, London. In stark contrast, avant-garde polymath Felicia
    Atkinson designs a ‘Fennel and Moon’ version, weaving between earthy field recordings and an
    aching piano line, conjuring an almost ritualistic atmosphere, far from the city.

    Radical musical turns continue to define the collection as son of Detroit, Jimmy Edgar takes
    ‘Rainwater Fijit’ down a dark, damp tunnel, expanding on the pitter patter of Turtle’s more
    outlandish studio experiments, blending vocal experiments with fresh funk. Colombian
    experimentalist Lucrecia Dalt pulls further bizarre shapes from a patchwork of samples, a heaving,
    gasping industrial shuffle, before French producer D.K. returns a stronger rhythm, both building
    on Turtle’s lovingly naive tributes to the legacy of sample culture and his trusty ARP2600.

    Ostgut Ton mainstay and Panorama Bar resident Nick Höppner proceeds to sensitively rewire
    ‘Maid Of The Mist’ into a blossoming, introspective celebration of melody and ambience, an
    almost weightless experience that lends itself well as a breather before Luca Duran’s analogue,
    acid-tinged take on Spookie Boogie takes Turtle’s esoteric touches back into the direction of the
    funk and italo records at the heart of his initial inspiration.

    The Remixes final chapter continues to expand in distinct and wide-reaching sonic directions.
    London’s Object Blue seems to slow time itself across her sublime interpretation of ‘Ball Of Fire’.
    Initially Turtle’s tribute to Howard Hawks 1941 film classic and the legacy of old Hollywood, worlds
    further collide into rolling, weightless bliss.

    Fellow Swiss citizen Mehmet Aslan stirs an enchanting, percussive mystery that unfolds with great
    pleasure on El Teb, while Parco Palaz conjures not one but two radically different remixes of ‘Are
    You Psychic?’, demonstrating both their imaginative nous, as well as the depth of Turtle’s legacy.
    Finally, an irresistible vocal contribution from Oso Leone adds even further colour and joy to ‘Maid
    of The Mist’, sending off this ambitious collection on a transformative, dream-pop high.
    With further details set to be revealed, there is an ongoing development focused around the
    accompanying art and visuals. The Peruvian born and now Amsterdam based graphic designer
    Jonathan Castro leads the art direction, along with visual artist Chris Harnan. Both artists look to
    explore the intersection between sound, imagery and its reorientation, exhibited through the
    musical contributors and visual translation.

    “I am happy and honoured to have been the spark for this remarkable compilation.
    The magnificent work done by this collection of very special people speaks for itself, so listen and
    be transported. It has been half a lifetime since my original tracks were written, and I am gratified
    to know that they are somehow still relevant enough to be reworked and reinvented.”

    1. A. Blade Runner (Maceo Plex Renaissance Remix)
    2. B. Blade Runner

    Two consecutive #1’s on the Beatport Top 100 has taken this special series of releases from strength to strength. Combining Techno’s new breed of heavyweights with the perfect classic track, is a formula Renaissance are getting right time after time. Following on from Solomun and Tale Of Us’s outstanding contributions, Renaissance turn their attention to the ever-evolving Maceo Plex for a remix of Remake’s iconic ‘Blade Runner’; a track featured prominently on the very first Renaissance compilation in 1994.

    Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex has become well known for his mind-bending Techno sets and releases under various guises such as Maetrik. 2011 saw the Ellum Audio boss, release his debut album under Maceo Plex on Crosstown Rebels, ‘Life Index’ was met with critical acclaim and propelled the North American to success. Leading to him starting his own label Ellum Audio with a distinct Techno sound, whilst releasing his own music it’s served as tool to champion those around him seeing releases from upcoming acts such as Agents Of Time and Shall Ocin.

    Speaking about the ReMix Maceo Plex, explains his love for the Neo-Noir Science Fiction Film Blade Runner’s soundtrack and the inspirations behind the track:

    “The original Vangelis, soundtrack for the movie Blade Runner is my all-time favourite cinema soundtrack and one of my favourite records from the early 90’s is the cover ‘Blade Runner’ by Remake.” – Maceo Plex

    Throughout time artists, musicians and designers have all paid homage to the cult classic movie and its soundtrack which has inspired the minds of many. Now taking his opportunity through the ReMix collection, Maceo Plex has delivered a timeless edit for the Renaissance collection series. Injecting the signature Maceo Plex sound with pulsating bass lines and futuristic synth tones stabbing their way to the breakdown where we’re met with all too familiar piano melody; transforming the original cover into a prime-time atmospheric weapon.

    “I wanted to make my own version to honour this special music and add a little something personal in this new version” – Maceo Plex

    With the previous editions in the ReMix, both hitting #1 in the Overall Beatport Chart within a week of release, the Maceo Plex remix will be eagerly anticipated.

    The vinyl release also contains Remake’s original version as the B side.

    4. B2. Mentres Tant

    TAU is pleased to announce the return of Spanish prodigy Upercent to the label for his second EP release. The Valencia-based producer goes against the grain when it comes to creating electronic music, operating in his own zone and establishing a unique sonic fingerprint. His sound is instantly identifiable and has landed him releases with labels like Kompakt, microCastle, or Watergate. Now he’s back with the TAU family to deliver a selection of avant-garde freshness…

    The EP begins with ‘Lupa Clup’, a menacing cut with a rolling rhythm at its core. Upercent gently teases in an eccentric melody that adds a lighter tone to the track and, before we know it, a fevered breakdown arrives to guide us into the booming second half.

    ‘Esser Conscient’ follows on with more pounding drums setting an ominous mood. A bright pad sweeps in adding an air of mystery, while Upercent gets busy with the percussion, as per usual. In the top layer a variety of keys and wind instruments stir up an emotionally-charged atmosphere before we enter the latter part of this cut, which is full of pulsating energy.

    Then we have ‘Carta Oberta’ - an oscillating, rhythmic workout that will ensnare your mind within minutes. This one is pretty minimal, with considered arrangement and the kind of original percussion that Upercent has become renowned for. The track oozes character and takes you on a real journey. Inspired!

    Next up is ‘Mentres Tant’ with its groaning bassline and whimsical effects. Once the beat kicks in you’ll be bopping your head uncontrollably. Again, there is just so much inventive flavour in this cut, such an original take on electronic music; there are piano keys, strange twisted vocal clips and an almighty breakdown.

    Carrer Bonaire EP is a mosaic of sounds traversing an infinite spectrum of emotions, handwoven by Interpret masterminds, Upercent and Santiago Garcia, with meticulous detail and quintessence through to the EP’s finish. But not to fret, Interpret is not only off to a good start, the label is here to stay, til imaginations run dry.

    With the first release in this series occupying Beatport #1 status for 6 weeks last summer, Renaissance are back with the second instalment of their 25th Anniversary ‘The Remix Collection” project. For the follow-up to Solomun’s immense reworking of Age Of Love, Renaissance have bagged more Techno royalty in the shape of Italian duo Tale Of Us, to take on the huge task of remixing another iconic 90’s classic.

    1. A. Blade Runner (Maceo Plex Renaissance Remix)
    2. B. Blade Runner

    Two consecutive #1’s on the Beatport Top 100 has taken this special series of releases from strength to strength. Combining Techno’s new breed of heavyweights with the perfect classic track, is a formula Renaissance are getting right time after time. Following on from Solomun and Tale Of Us’s outstanding contributions, Renaissance turn their attention to the ever-evolving Maceo Plex for a remix of Remake’s iconic ‘Blade Runner’; a track featured prominently on the very first Renaissance compilation in 1994.

    Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex has become well known for his mind-bending Techno sets and releases under various guises such as Maetrik. 2011 saw the Ellum Audio boss, release his debut album under Maceo Plex on Crosstown Rebels, ‘Life Index’ was met with critical acclaim and propelled the North American to success. Leading to him starting his own label Ellum Audio with a distinct Techno sound, whilst releasing his own music it’s served as tool to champion those around him seeing releases from upcoming acts such as Agents Of Time and Shall Ocin.

    Speaking about the ReMix Maceo Plex, explains his love for the Neo-Noir Science Fiction Film Blade Runner’s soundtrack and the inspirations behind the track:

    “The original Vangelis, soundtrack for the movie Blade Runner is my all-time favourite cinema soundtrack and one of my favourite records from the early 90’s is the cover ‘Blade Runner’ by Remake.” – Maceo Plex

    Throughout time artists, musicians and designers have all paid homage to the cult classic movie and its soundtrack which has inspired the minds of many. Now taking his opportunity through the ReMix collection, Maceo Plex has delivered a timeless edit for the Renaissance collection series. Injecting the signature Maceo Plex sound with pulsating bass lines and futuristic synth tones stabbing their way to the breakdown where we’re met with all too familiar piano melody; transforming the original cover into a prime-time atmospheric weapon.

    “I wanted to make my own version to honour this special music and add a little something personal in this new version” – Maceo Plex

    With the previous editions in the ReMix, both hitting #1 in the Overall Beatport Chart within a week of release, the Maceo Plex remix will be eagerly anticipated.

    The vinyl release also contains Remake’s original version as the B side.

    HELLCAT is a new series from bbbbbb records focusing on club-ready dance floor
    driven tunes. The first edition, HELLCAT VOL.1 welcomes VTSS and Cadency on
    the A side, juxtapositioned by the Icelanders Bjarki and Kuldaboli on the B side.

    Berlin-based Polish producer, DJ and live act VTSS is a regular at Warsaw-based
    club Jasna1 and her visceral productions and energetic performances join the
    dots between hard techno, acid, rave and EBM. ‘Sober Raving’ sees her once
    again in her finest form with rumbling bass, mean melodies and a cacophony of
    percussion.

    Cadency is the moniker of OAKS and KAOS founder Héctor Oaks. He is one of
    the most exciting names in today’s thriving techno scene and is a regular at the
    likes of Berlin’s infamous Herrensauna and Tbilisi’s nightclub institution Bassiani.
    ‘Eating Steel’ is an example of how twisted Oaks can get, combining reverberating
    kicks with oscillating atmospherics and murky vocal samples.

    Bjarki needs little introduction as the founder of bbbbbb and one of the most
    versatile electronic music producers and live acts out there, creating high quality
    techno, electro, IDM and even ambient. Meanwhile, Kuldaboli is another Icelandic
    electronic music producer based in Berlin who specialises in stone cold electro.
    Together they team up for ‘Hrái Hötturin’: a fast paced and mesmerising cut with
    sci-fi stabs and intricate warps before the blistering solo outing from Kuldaboli
    entitled ‘Hefurðu einhvern tímann hugsað um það’ warps listeners through outer
    space at 160 bpm.

    1. A. Murphy's Law (Cosmodelica Remix)
    2. B. Murphy's Law

    Today, Róisín Murphy teams up with producer and DJ Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy on the fabulous ‘Cosmedelica’ remix of her latest disco masterclass 'Murphy’s Law’. Transformed into a funky, strutting number, the already rapturous track evolves into something equally joyous and electrifying.

    Revered by her peers, Colleen is a hugely respected radio broadcaster, music producer, remixer, record label owner and founder of Classic Album Sundays, coming up in the ranks in the DJ world with her unique take on the craft and knowledge of club culture.

    She says, "When I heard ‘Murphy’s Law' for the first time, it pressed every melodic and lyrical button. And as we evolve into a new reality, the song takes on new meanings - sometimes tragic (‘all my hard work goes down the drain’) but ultimately resilient (‘pretty soon I’ll be breaking loose and the scene y’ll be changing). We’re not ready to break loose yet, but when we do, we’ll have the best party. Ever."

    Róisín further explains, “This remix came about in the way all the best ones do. Colleen had a vision for the track, she wanted to do it and she doesn’t do a lot of remixes. Colleen’s linage and pedigree is so deeply embedded in the music I love, I feel foolish even going into it here, I don’t like to name drop!

    When she asked could she do the mix, my mind was blown. Murphy versus Murphy in the funky case of Murphy’s Law!!!” Róisín also recently created a series of 6 performance videos for the renowned Manchester club night Homoelectric’s recent Stay Homo 12 hour live stream – a rave for these times - and you can now watch them in all their glory here.

    It was here that she first debuted the dizzyingly addictive Cosmodelica remix. Murphy’s 25 year career has been one of unbridled, unmatched creativity and these mind-melting, breathtaking videos, all made in her living room during lockdown, once again showcase why she is such a trailblazer.

    Last month Murphy co-hosted a 3fm show from her living room and more recently fans voted to celebrate and delve into her “Overpowered” album as part of Tim Burgess’ “#Timstwitterlisteningparty”, which has become the most replayed of the series . So much so that Róisín is returning on June 19 to discuss seminal Moloko record “Statues”. If this hive of activity wasn’t enough, expect a full length album in the summer featuring all of Murphy’s iconic singles with DJ Parrot (“Simulation”, “Jealousy”, Incapable”, “Narcisuss” and most recently “Murphy’s Law”), alongside brand new tracks.

    Born from Music of Life archive tapes (previously believed lost) which were uncovered by Robin Allinson in a Publishers warehouse in 2012.

    The source material for this special record is" 1989 Hustlers Convention Live" (SPOCK1) ".

    A Live Hip Hop Album, famously sampled by The Prodigy for the 'Everybody In The Place' vocal. The tapes of the night were multi tracks with 6 channels of audio recorded, Decks (Mono), 2 Mics (Mono) and the Room (Stereo). Being so old the tapes were first 'baked' and then transferred from a Studer machine in to Pro Tools via Prism Sound A/D converters at FX Rentals / FX Copyroom, Acton, London.

    Notable performances by Artists on the Night came from MC Duke & Merlin; Mark The 45 King; Demon Boyz; Daddy Freddy. DJ's on the night were Westwood and Cut master Swift. Sections of their sets between Artists was captured. What did not make the Album was the Battle instigated by Overlord X coming on stage and stopping proceedings to battle MC Duke. As Duke once told me "X stuttered on the Mic".

    Listening back, it's gold and puts Queen Latifa popping up in context. While restoring the Album as a multi track mixdown Robin started a series of new music projects plundering the MOL tapes and formed Stay On Target records to release them. Recordings were sent to: Sonars Ghost (SOT000), Stormski, 6Blocc, Bay B Kane and the last instalment was by Robbee Darkhalf.

    You may remember the closing of Space, Ibiza with Carl Cox when he played a bootleg of Total Confusion.
    Barry Obzee Hobbs (Rising High A&R) spent a lot of time trying to locate the Remixer and finally did a few months ago. We have now signed the remix which will be released on vinyl in May and on digital in July. The story goes like this: Carl Cox has been playing the version at most of his shows including Tomorrow Land, Kappa Future Fest and Timewarp ( see video clip below) but this is where the story becomes more interesting. The Remixer, ROD Malmok from Rotterdam aka Benny Rodriguez, who is a very established DJ Producer playing for Loco Dice in Ibiza etc and releasing on Ben Klock's imprint Klockwork, Chris Liebing's imprint CLR, Adam Beyer's imprint Drumcode and many more was inspired to remix the track through a conversation with Dubfire, Rod gave him a rough copy the following day. He played it to Carl Cox at Space, Ibiza and Cox begged him for a copy - see video below
    If you've been around the scene for a while you will know that Rising High Records was one of the first labels to shape Techno, Hardcore and Breakbeat in the UK and was huge!
