    1. A1. Syncope
    2. A2. Irony
    3. B1. Bach

    Lithuanian based label Sodai started its journey in 2016, making it a label still in it’s infancy but making a big impression. Owned by artist Gardens Of God, who started the label to create his own ‘no limits’ platform for his experimental sounds and projects. While at the same time a platform to give other artists the chance to also have freedom with art and music.

    With releases from Raxon, Few Nolder and Alex Krell under their belt, they can announce the exciting debut from UK producer Third Son this April. “I’ve been an admirer of Gardens Of Gods’ music for a long time, when he asked me if I could do something for his imprint, I was more than thrilled!” adds Joseph.

    ‘Syncope’s’ synths spread far and wide, making this a journey of a track, modulating and panning in and out, pushing and pulling along a percussive drive. His broad musical range can be felt in this mix, with its slightly hypnotic tones.

    ‘Irony’ has a punctuated low end, which creates a deep and dark groove. The synthetic elements in this track gain in attitude, on top of ambient pads, leading nicely into ‘Bach’ to close out the release. It’s driving and determined bass makes the backbone of the track, with a modulating hook line, along building and expanding frequency ranges.

    The whole package makes for a very strong first release from Third Son, and Sodai are excited to be welcoming him to the family.

    1. A. Techno Is Dead
    2. B. Go Down To Mexico

    Dino Lenny returns with a new dark dancefloor drop, ready to cause a stir after a string of on-point release over the last year on the likes of Innervisions, Diynamic, Ellum and Sapiens.

    Title track 'Techno Is Dead' lands on his own Fine Human imprint and takes a play from people sentencing the end of a style, but the truth is the floors are having it like no tomorrow. Sonic wise, it’s a 8 minute slice of driving, shadowy, electronic sound, with rumbling 4/4 beats and warehouse ready builds working in tandem for a truly standout piece of finely balanced sound, that will no doubt light up the clubs.

    Following up is ' Go Down To Mexico', with an array of off kilter stabs and trippy vocal elements solidifying Dino's dexterous production style. Expect to hear these across the clubs in the coming months.

    It was Vladimir Ivkovic who introduced me to the world of Rex Ilusivii. A world where the spirit of a genius holds sway. I remember spending an entire night at Vladimir's house in Germany, listening to all those recovered pieces, and feeling like I had entered another space-time.

    Mitar tragically left us, one November night in 1999 in Brazil, leaving behind an extensive body of work consisting of more than 500 pieces, for the most part never released. Being submerged in such a unique universe, so singular, brought me happiness. It also filled me with hope, because I tell myself that today there must be many other outstanding musicians who produce in the shadow of the traditional circuit, just for the pleasure of making music.

    Listening to the music of Mitar Subotić makes you part of his world. He did not stop producing from 1983 to 1999, in different styles, but with an instantly recognizable touch.His music also marries the evolution of recording techniques with new instruments that have appeared over this time, from the TR808 to the digital samplers. It took me more than two years to select the music for this record, as each time I listened to the material it revealed other details and other possibilities.

    I am extremely happy and honored to present this record to you, in which I try to do justice to the different, "versatile" facets of Suba.

    Future Disco, pioneers in bringing 21st century disco to the dancefloors, returns with its highly anticipated latest edition, A Disco Fantasy, on 27th April.

    Inspired by the unparalleled flamboyant expressionism that the original Disco era captured so perfectly, A Disco Fantasy, takes listeners on a dazzling journey of House and Disco with exclusive cuts from club veter-ans Louie Vega and Greg Wilson, as well as exclusive edits from Future Disco themselves. The album also showcases some of the genre’s best new talent with Young Marco, Johannes Albert, Lovers and COEO all featuring across the uniquely crafted seventeen track mix.

    A Disco Fantasy delivers the soundtrack that makes clubbers’ dreams a reality. Picture scenes of the al-most mythical Studio 54 where club-goers lost themselves in the music, the movement, the lights and the moment. Horses roamed, sexual expression was free and celebrities danced amongst a crowd that was dressed for the catwalk. Disco was always about fantasy and still is today. Future Disco’s - A Disco Fantasy captures this uninhibited spirit that was so electrifying and continues to be to this day.

    Kraak & Smaak - Keep It Together, kicks off the album with an uplifting, pacey track that delivers a classic disco synth and bassline to match. Amp Fiddler - Steppin’ (Future Disco Piano Edit) ramps up the mix with a classic 90’s piano, along with the euphoric Sylvester - Dance (Disco Heat) (Louie Vega Re-touch Edit) and pumping Delphi - Blue Tuesday. Get lost in the moment with Ten Ven - Turn It Up and experience those sun rise spine tingles with Pale Blue - You Stopped Dying.

    As a globally recognised bastion of quality with over twenty successful albums, Ibiza residencies and in ex-cess of 5 million digital streams, Future Disco continues to expertly curate fresh House and Disco that’s relevant for today’s music lovers. And with Disco and Soulful House now experiencing a somewhat main-stream renaissance, club-goers are demanding a more glamourous and flamboyant experience to the dark warehouse raves of late.

    Sean Brosnan, compiler and Future Disco DJ, explains, “Future Disco has always been at the forefront of the modern Disco scene and we like to think we’ve played a significant role in the genre’s revival over the past 10 years. The trend has shifted from a darker, more lonesome dance floor experience to a more cele-bratory vibe with the theatre returning to our dancefloors. We wanted to encapsulate this in our latest cura-tion and fire up that musical fantasy clubbers are craving again.”

    Back in August 2017, Jerome Derradji received a call by one of Chicago’s most renowned record dealer.
    It went like this: “Hey Jerome, I’ve got all these reel to reel tapes of Chicago House stuff. You want to take a look?”

    Less than 24 hours later, more than 160 reels were purchased and safely hauled back to the Still Music office and Jerome got to work.

    In fact, these reels - that were lost for more than 20 years - contain some incredible stuff that we’ll be releasing in the years to come but right now it’s time to Jack!

    Apollo proudly presents the return of SW, joined by partner SVN for a sublime 6 track EP.

    SW's lush sound design and hypnotic arrangements of 2017’s ’The Album’ had hearts and minds swooning following it’s license from SUED to Apollo.

    It’s balmy glory won over Pitchfork ('deeply expressive debut album’ 8/10), Rolling Stone (best electronic albums 2017) and XLR8R (Best releases 2017) amongst many others.

    One year later, SW and SVN have gone into the studio, together; “to make some original music specifically for Apollo. The results are the 6 tracks on this EP,” they share in a typically taciturn statement.

    Taking inspiration from the iconic house and techno of the mid / late 90s - SW and SVN combine dreamy melodies and mesmeric grooves with unfussy, focussed minimalism, their beguiling, modern take on classic sounds and rhythms remains thrillingly unique and elusive.

    While SW and SVN are more comfortable out of the limelight, this 6 track EP for Apollo once again proves that they are rightly worthy of the hype that swirls around them.

One of the last in a rare breed of dedicated crate-diggers, Kon’s vast knowledge of the heavily swung rhythms of classic disco make him a reverent remixer for this mid-tempo Krystal Davis disco hit, originally released in 1985 on New York label Urban Rock Records Inc. His version amps up the pace, tailoring the record for any discerning contemporary disco set. Midnight Riot Records head Yam Who? goes blissed out with the synths for an irresistible mix that’s smoother than smooth.

    2. B. Nacrem

    Making his debut on the label, Spanish producer Kuo Climax is welcomed to the Hot Creations fold. A solid two track release that has already been heating up dancefloors across the globe, the talented artist showcases his distinct style and proves why he is hotly tipped for 2018.

    The EP opens up with Whyte, a pulsating track with a warped bassline and oozing synths. Two and a half minutes deep it disperses into a breakbeat-esque breakdown that dives back into the familiar 4/4 beat. Title track Nacrem is a smooth roller with an underpinning bass and intergalactic vocal stabs. The EP highlights the Spanish producer’s ability to bring balance to his output, providing music perfectly attuned for the floor.

    Born in Malaga and now residing in Barcelona, Kuo Climax has released on respected labels such as Knee Deep In Sound, Solid Grooves and VIVa MUSiC. 2018 will see the producer launch his own vinyl-only imprint, LFOFL, that aims to recognise the progress in technology without losing the essence of true dance music.

    1. A. Private Dancer feat. Whalesharkattacks
    2. B. Nightingale

    Norwegian duo Ost & Kjex make a welcome return to Crosstown Rebels. Their Private Dancer EP is a masterclass in producing dance-floor ready rhythms. They welcome fellow Norwegian Whalesharkattacks to the mix to provide her dark yet dreamy vocals.

    “We had a fascination with Tina’s Private Dancer since first being exposed to it by Pat Sharp on Sky Trax in the 80’s. Whalesharkattacks personifies everything that’s cool about the 80’s, so when we met her we knew we had to cut a version” Ost & Kjex

    Private Dancer is as dark as it is melodic, with eerie drum pads and a medley of dreamt synths. Norwegian vocalist Whalesharkattacks, whose music has been described as 808 goth, lends a distorted vocal. On Nightingale a burdenging bass adds a sense of urgency interlaced with vocals reminiscent of the 80s era. Cosmic synths float side by side samples of beautiful bird song. A titillating work of art with a mesmerising beat.

    1. A1. White Room
    2. A2. Stained Glass
    3. B1. Pearly Hate
    4. B2. Red Floor

    Danny McLewin (Psychemagik) and Jamie Cruisey have a new label of original signed artists called SPIRITS. The first release is from Mexican hotness ‘Lokier' of She Made Monster and 'Jason Greer' aka ‘The Machine’, one of the Californian undergrounds best kept secrets. They met in 2015 at a festival in London and after spending a few days together, became musically obsessed with each other. That summer, as Jason bounced around Europe, he stayed with Lokier in Barcelona for some weeks and after long night walks, some tapas and absinthe bars they came up with their first EP together.

    A1 "White Room's" slo-mo headnod film score, kick starts the EP, brooding synths buzzing with electric cocaine gloss, their oscillators fluttering like cyborg butterflies around the pulsating strobelight beat. Creepy.
    A2 "Stained Glass" hits tough straight out the gate with subterranean bubbling acid bass and charges headlong into deep psychedelic territory with a goth-inspired guitar, reverb on 11, turning the track into a next-level robo-Giallo monster!

    B1 "Pearly Hate" begins as if a menacing swarm of bionic rave bees is slowly surrounding you, the tension of their impending drone amping up steadily as your brain thinks: Do I run? This midtempo Carpenter-esque jam is atmospheric putty in the hands of sleazoned DJ's and sounds like the beginning of a long, strange trip.
    B2 "Red Floor" is a chugging, barely restrained dark disco beast, flagrantly wearing its Weatherall and Neu Beat-ing heart on its tattered sleeve, elliptical melodies keeping you from your sanity with a solid drop for the dancefloor - another one for DJ's who ride it rough.

    Thus completes the first release for new label SPIRITS. Four tracks exploring another corner of otherworldly analogue hedonism for extra-dimensional travel. Keep your ear on "Red Floor", as its potential for dancefloor uplift is proven and Machine-ready! Stay jacked in for more missives soon...

    Ivan Smagghe:
    "When your best Mexican chola low-rider meets our favourite Californian mechanic, you get a proper slice of (Lokier and) Machine funk. This is grease electronics, black leather under the very dark sun of ‘Pearly Hate’ or in the bright isolation tank of ‘White Room’”

    Andrew Weatherall:
    White Room, Pearly Hate, Red Floor all perfect for Alfos.

    Tim Sweeney:
    Really feeling this EP. I will definitely be playing it.

    1. A. Tusk
    2. B. Aku

    Cleveland is forever in search of the brown note. This is his second offering for the ESP Institute. Side A’s Tusk is a beautiful paradox—rhythm programs that churn like the inner workings of a grandfather clock, unmistakably mechanical, yet fashioned through muted analogue instrumentation that paints a deceptively organic picture. The crystallized jangle of FM synth voices toy with the softened drum patterns and vibrant animal-like chord gestures over nearly seven minutes of splendor. On side B, Aku digs further into mysticism, manifesting digital jungle themes, cleverly abstracted through erratic bleeps, distant tribal drums, atonal flutters and synthetic bird calls. The cinematic quality of Clevelands production shines through both tracks, but its Aku that sweeps us from reality to embark on a moonlit expedition in search long lost treasures, proving Cleveland a virtuoso skilled in building complex narratives with sound. These two songs will modulate your frequencies.

    FINA Records welcome Jad & The for a new EP that shows off the Australian-born, Berlin-based producer’s majestically melodic house sound. A special dub from 6th Borough Project makes this another essential release.

    Before now Jad & The has served up tracks of the year (‘Strings That Never Win’ - Mixmag 2017), fronted four piece live act Mitzi—who played alongside the likes of Nile Rodgers—and also produced as Jad & The Ladyboy, all the while picking up fans like Moxie and Bradley Zero. Sonar Kollektiv and Toy Tonics have put out his charming sounds before and this new one is another joyous offering.

    The feel good ‘2 Getha (4 Eva Mix)’ kicks things of with old school drum breaks and loved-up vocals. Big smeared pads, a new age melody and classic bassline line finish it off and carry you away to summery house heaven. ‘Twist Club’ then drops into lush deep house with a long legged bassline tumbling beneath organic drums. It’s a dreamy and romantic cut before ‘Disco Hold Down’ has live sounding jazz drums, choppy vocals and rough edges that take you to the heart of a vibe-fulled basement party. Delusions Of Grandeur’s 6th Borough Project serve up a Dub that’s more stripped back and built on a big rubber bassline. Jacking drums and a more rapturous vocal make it a truly steamy jam.

    Buy the EP digitally and you get a bonus track, ‘2 Getha (Neva Mix)’ which is another blissed out and rave tinged house cut which oozes pure euphoria. It closes out a brilliantly heartfelt EP of varied and vital house sounds.

    Mike Huckaby, Bergqvist, DJ Sports, Raam and LNS remix ‘Deep Soundscapes’, Takecha’s album recently released on Sweden’s Love Potion.

    Released in March, the album incorporates Takeshi Fukushima’s work between 1990 to 2013 and affirms why the producer is such a respected figure within Japan’s electronic music scene. Now his compositions have been remixed by some of house music’s best, featuring renditions from Detroit’s Mike Huckaby, Aniara’s Henrik Bergqvist, the elusive Raam, Firecracker and Regelbau’s DJ Sports, as well as Wania and Freakout Cult’s LNS.

    Mike Huckaby inaugurates the release with his sultry take on ‘Low Sentiment’, blending deep synths with murmuring vocals to forge a proper deep house cut. Bergqvist then remixes ‘Rhodes Deep’ creating a bouncy minimal cut incorporating the original’s scintillating melody alongside meandering percussion and twisted effects, making way into DJ Sports’ remix of ‘Gradual Atmosphere’ with its intricate breakbeat drums and dreamlike atmospherics. Raam then reinvents ‘Calm Imagination’ taking it into subterranean territories complete with infectious keys, until LNS ties it all together with her mesmerising beatless reimagining of ‘Factory 141’.

    4. B2. Cult Of Glamour - Inductive Logic

    Man Power’s Me Me Me label proudly presents a very special new compilation, ‘We We We’, which will see all profits donated to the vital Help Refugees charity. The release boasts 25 new and exclusive tracks from a wide range of artists both new and established including Pional, Juan Maclean, Shit Robot, Medlar, ASOK, Ian Blevins and more. As well as the full album, two limited, vinyl-only samplers will also be released, with each featuring one exclusive track that is not available anywhere digitally.

    The recipient of the albums profits, Help Refugees, is the leading UK NGO in a new movement of humanitarian aid, helping to plug the gaps in services not provided to those displaced by war. The man behind the compilation’s concept is Man Power aka Geoff Kirkwood, an established producer with credits for his off kilter mix of house, disco, ambient and techno on labels like John Talabot’s Hivern Discs, ESP Institute and Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondent.

    Kirkwood says, “I have wanted to do a compilation of this nature for a long time. I’m incredibly lucky, as well as eternally grateful, to know so many talented artists who were willing to donate wonderful music towards this important cause.” The gratitude clearly flows both ways with Help Refugees director Philli Boyle saying “We are so grateful to Man Power and to all the incredible artists who have shown solidarity with displaced people across the world”.

    The superb compilation kicks off in plaintive fashion with absorbing ambient tracks from Ian Blevins, Dharma and ASOK. Pale Blue’s ‘Eyes’ then brings deep and persuasive drums into the picture with thoughtful, sombre synths lingering up top. There is a real beauty to much of the selection here, as demonstrated by more wistful chords on Forriner’s lush deep house day dream ‘Sunrise in Bensham’, while jacking dance floor tackle comes from Pink Skull and Medlar’s pumping 909 drums and the pixelated melodic delights of Christophe’s rugged, Chicago-indebted jack track ‘Winder’.

    Man Power himself pops up with an epic nine minute opus that is broad, sweeping house music at its most dramatic and evocative, and Pional’s ‘Night Charmer’ is a typically inventive cut with icy drones and dehumanised vocals. Big hitters like Shit Robot offer a heavy dose of dub house, while ‘Quantume Reach’ by Juan Maclean (feat Amy Douglas) is gorgeously off beat house with thoughtful chords and spine-tingling vocals with a poignant message.

    This is a compilation jam-packed with a broad array of accomplished and standout sounds, and that it is all for charity only makes it an even more essential and welcome release.
    The full album is released exclusively via Bandcamp on 4th May in exchange for a ‘no minimum’ donation to the charity, with the label asking to please give generously.

    Having pinned to perfection the sonics of the Adriatic, Croatia’s Love International Festival bottles up their blissed out rhythms and sunrise sessions for the inauguration of Love International Recordings, fittingly, with a first release from UK producer Begin.

    Bringing the Love International feel to wax and digital, the label will encapsulate the range of music the festival’s secluded party paradise has become renowned for. All the way from the balearic tinges of this first release, to the meatier house, techno and electro selections on show at Barbarellas.

    Begin aka James Holroyd has a long history with Love International. Dating back to the early 2000s, Holroyd was one of the first guest DJs at the old Garden festival on the former festival site in Petrčane. Long serving Chemical Brothers tour DJ, Back to Basics resident since the 90's and Bugged Out co founder, Begin has long paid his paid his dues to the scene. In the words of Dave Harvey: “he’s been an absolute workhorse in dance music for time”.

    Love International 001's tracks seemingly fit the festivals own daily lifecycle. From the docile guitar picking of meditative EP opener ‘Wood Trees’ to the slow daybreak funk of ‘Daypulse’ where synths pierce through the track like sun rays through the Adriatic dusk, the EP is a holistic reflection of what one might hear at one of the festival’s fabled sunrise sessions. ‘Garden Interlude’ ushers in a fresh burst of energy, with the revitalizing sounds of piano house, paired with warming neo soul vocals. ‘Into The Fun’ is a self fulfilling prophecy, closing the EP on a quintessentially balearic note.

    Every once in a while a record comes along which is a little bit special, a record which stands the test of time, bringing the same reaction to the dancefloor now as it did all those years ago, and ‘Don’t You Want My Love’ is one of those records. Almost four decades after its original release in 1979, the record has become a favourite with the Glitterbox crowds, creating a seminal moment at Ministry of Sound when David Morales dropped it at the party in March 2017. Now Debbie Jacob’s timeless classic lands on Glitterbox Recordings for a special vinyl package including a re-edit courtesy of disco veteran Dimitri From Paris. The spirit of disco lives on.

    More vinyl remixes from Psychemagik with the long awaited official 'Dancehall Days' remix sanctioned by Jack Hues from Wang Chung himself. Jack liked Psychemagiks re-edit of Dance Hall Days so much he contacted the duo and offered them the parts for an official remix. The result is a monster dancefloor friendly beast that is true to the original edit but with some extra magik! ‘Psychemagik stand out from the crowd with high production values and innate musicality. I usually find remixes tedious, but this takes you on some off-world journey – very cool.’ Jack Hues (Wang Chung)

    Pharaohs is a live band from Los Angeles including blossoming producers Suzanne Kraft, Ale Cohen (from the legendary Dublab) and surfer/synth-geek, Sam Cooper. One might assume these lot are in search of their sound, dabbling in various sub-genres, loosely citing a mixed bag of references… but any listener with a refined palette will acknowledge these three as Renaissance Men of the highest order. They simply know what sounds nice and strive to execute their vision with taste, regardless of what inspiration fuels them at any given moment. Side A leads with "Ahumbo" (named after Sam's dream beach in Zanzibar), blending a dry and simplistic rhythm section with swelling synth chords, a cheeky vocal and a vibrant surf guitar. Following "Ahumbo" is the title track "Island Time," a bouncy jungle vibe with chant about tropical fruits, a reminder that its always Summer somewhere! Last, but not least, Side B doles out "If It Ever Feels Right," a percussive House jam that is literally a JAM… Its on this track, with its live percussion, saxophone and drum programming, that the band capacaity of Pharoahs shines.

    If we listen to the Higher Self, our experience of life is joyful and abundant. When you see yourself connected to something bigger than yourself, you no longer feel must do it all alone. Your sense of power becomes highly magnified and your fears are greatly diminished. With the Universal Energy on your side, you can learn to trust not only yourself, but the Universe as well. There is nothing to fear. You are tapping into your source of power. When people speak of being "on a path" or that "life is a journey," they're referring to the constant vigil required to listen to the lessons of the Higher Self. The path that needs changing is the one that's in your mind. It is your mind that has to be changed first, then all that's right will follow. As you begin to awaken, reach out and turn on your tape machine, lie with your eyes closed and let the soothing, loving message sink in, "I am creating a beautiful day."

    Young Marco stepped into the ESP Institute one day in 2012 with a handful of undeniably brilliant music, and has ever since maintained an integral role in the mission of the label. His unaffected instinct and sincere writing process are perfectly balanced by his meticulous craft—a rare quality among contemporary artists which promises a vast and fruitful oeuvre. This is universal music, transcending genre and taste level despite being wholly instrumental. Much like his ability as a DJ, pairing esoteric records to discerning dance floors worldwide, Marco's talent for producing the right voice in an emotive melody and dynamic arrangement is aspirational. Biology is a passionate album that will outlive the many fleeting wrinkles in electronic music, but will more importantly nest in your heart.

    There is a long-standing love affair between DJ Harvey and Pikes, Ibiza. As well as coming back for his third consecutive ‘Mercury Rising’ residency, the legendary ‘DJs’ DJ has been appointed ‘Cultural Attaché’ for Pikes, meaning his magic touch and feel-good presence will create even more special moments at Pikes this summer, including the launch of new label, Pikes Records.

    In 2015 DJ Harvey made his hugely anticipated return to Ibiza and made Pikes his home for his Mercury Rising debut, a concept inspired by the beauty of the real Ibiza, the incredible history of Pikes and a genuine love for music. The love, the dancing, the music and the Balearic spirit perfectly and poetically encapsulated by DJ Harvey has seen Mercury Rising widely recognised as the most special night to embrace the island in over a decade.

    The next step in the Harvey and Pikes story sees him launch Pikes Records – the first record label founded by Pikes owners and Ibiza Rocks Co-Founders Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle. On the label, Harvey explains: “I see so many avenues to work together to release music, everything from live recordings from Ibiza Rocks and Pikes, mix tapes, original productions, showcasing new artists, there’s all sorts of avenues to open up.”

    With the finer details still under wraps, it’s safe to say fans can look forward to the first release being Harvey’s very own Mercury Rising compilation. But what can we expect from the third instalment of Mercury Rising? Putting it quite simply, “Just a serious good time really” says Harvey.

    The Sound Of Mercury Rising will be released September 15th on Pikes Records and DJ Harvey and his infamous all night long sets return for Mercury Rising from Monday 7th August to 25th September at Pikes Hotel.

    Well. Where do we start with 'Deep Inside'? Originally released in the golden NYC House era of 1993, this 5 tracker literally smashed everything in sight. And still does now! The epitome of an evergreen, all-time classic release. Masters At Work Louie Vega and Kenny Dope were on a major roll in this era, producing, remixing, dj-ing and everything in-between, these guys put in ridiculous work. They are joined on this EP by a roll-call of names and collaborators, Erick Morillo engineering the title track? Check. Maurice Joshua on co-production duties? You got it. Vocals by Ms. Barbara tucker? They're there. Killer, rock hard drums? Stacks of Soul? Masterfully chopped up Disco samples? All present. Serious stuff. Sometimes a record just manages to capture and distill the true essence of what this is all about and 'Deep Inside' is one such record, it bears all the hallmarks of golden era MAW, all the signposts of what was happening in NYC's clubs in the early to mid 90's were there within it's grooves. You know a record is good when it's still being, quite literally, hammered nearly 25 years later! Now, remastered, and reissued with the full involvement of Strictly Rhythm this seminal piece of NYC House history is made available again with all original, full sleeve artwork intact as per the 1993 original. This one's a straight up essential for any self-respecting dance aficionado. You know what to do!

    South UK hotbed of dance music culture seems to nurturing a lot of talent at the moment. Fuck Berlin, if you've got an MPC and an idea head to Peckham!

It's the 'IN' vote solidified in musical form, but let's not go there now shall we? Beans and Louis make the highest quality house music, which is perfectly demonstrated on this two¬‐track EP. "Global Erosion" sees long¬‐time collaborator Isaac Aesili contribute horn hooks and live percussion to this truly deep and emotional journey. On the flip, "Background Explorer" turns up the heat with an 8 minute heads¬‐down transcendental percussion and drum workout, the surging chords and rainforest calls forcing the head to follow the feet.

    1. A1 The Trip
    2. B1 Sisters Of The Moon

    Those wizards of digging Psychemagik doing the business once again. Hot on the heels of last year's monstrous 'Gotta hold on me / Wildman' they're letting folks know that they were still out there searching in the darkest recesses of the last 40+ years of popular and unpopular music, and boy oh boy are they good at it!

    'The Trip' lives up to it's name. The track kicks off with some ultra beefed up psychedelic shenanigans, swirling, cacophonous sounds whirl and sweep and gradually drag us into the holographic tunnel, gradually giving way to some heavyweight drums and percussions and unfurling into a muscular psych-discoid beast. This one will send the kids crazy and will undoubtedly cause some damage in the club, both sonically and mentally. 'But what is the original?' we hear you say... answers on a postcard please.

    'Sisters of the moon' on the flip-side is a very different animal - All laid back, laconic steel-guitars and thundering slo-mo drums and percussion. The dark side of a rural witchcraft dream exposed here, almost menacing... and then? Those vocals spring out of the mix amidst the throbbing sexually charged atmosphere and drag us back into the realm of 'near reality' with sultry moans and groans. This one's woozy alright, but in the best possible way. So wrong, it's right and possibly the natural soundtrack to too many of those strange shots that that guy in the weird hat gave us earlier when we entered that country pub. 'What guy?' I hear you ask....

    Ultimate freak-disco and deepest druid Funk for the discerning and psychedelically inclined record consumer.
