    1. A. Reach Out (Crooked Man Mix #2)
    2. B. Reach Out (Crooked Man Mix #3)

    This summer, Skint Records serve up a brilliant package of remixes of Midfield General’s huge 1999 smash ‘Reach Out’ with Linda Lewis. The new remixes come from the one and only Crooked Man and feature vocals re-recorded by Linda in 2000 which were consigned to a draw waiting for the right person to use them.

    Crooked Man is that person, aka Richard Barratt, a uniquely inventive house and disco producer whose self-titled 2016 album on DFA was one of the most revered of the year. He has a knack for off-kilter greatness and has also released on Optimo Trax. Interestingly, he and Midfield General both worked together on Zebra Face, a cartoon about a hip hop obsessed Zebra and his diabetic side kick for Channel 4. The show featured voices from Kid Acne, Jarvis Cocker, Roots Manuva and Lady Chann amongst others. It also turned out that Midfield General was a huge fan of the Crooked Man album before realising who was behind it, so got in touch ask for some remixes.

    The results are 2 typically unusual new dance floor bombs.

    The classy Remix #2 is down and dirty, with warped bass twisting and turning underneath metallic drum hits. The vocals are more aloof here and lend the whole track a feeling of effortless cool as synths gently undulate and carry you late into the night.

    Another standout effort, Remix #3 is somewhere in-between. It’s an airy track with driving house drums and hits, and elegiac synths that bring real dynamism and musicality to the track. It’s clean and soulful in design and one to bring the whole floor together as one.

    These tasteful remixes have emotion and groove to spare.

    Mint Condition - A reissue label focused on excavating the outer fringes of classic House and Techno. Unreleased mixes, classics and overlooked gems mined from the last 20+ of contemporary dance music are the order of the day. From Chicago, Detroit and New York to London and beyond, Mint Condition have got their expert digging hats on to bring you exclusive heat and those rarer than rare jams that have been on your wants list for years! Dig in....

    1988 - The second 'summer of love' - The UK is in the grip of acid house fever, warehouses, sports halls, basements and nightclubs are reverberating to the new dance sounds emanating from Chicago and Detroit. Unbeknownst to most at the time this halcyon year will go down in the history books as a defining time that will shape the future of dance music. All major cities in the UK had their own scene, their own sound and their own legends. Manchester is one such city, a much storied participant with a legendary musical pedigree. Enter Annette, built around vocalist Annette Dos Reis this was a veritable all-star group featuring Quando Quango's Mike Pickering, A guy called Gerald, A certain ratio's Simon Topping and respected studio face Ritchie Close all on production. 'Dream 17' was the group's first outing on the newly minted DeConstruction label in 1988 and boasted a truly original and fresh spin on the US sounds that were dominating dance-floors at the time, so much so that most people didn't believe the record was created in the UK! Obviously it made perfect sense to draft in Detroit's Derrick May to craft a stellar remix that pushed the record even further into the stratosphere. May's remix wasn't included on the original 12" and was hugely sought after by DJ's and jocks alike. This is the first time all of the mixes of 'Dream 17' have been collected in one place, the complete package of this all time classic, a true old school transatlantic anthem available again for todays dance.

    'Dream 17' has been legitimately released with the full involvement of the rights holders and remastered by Bristol's Optimal Mastering from the original DAT tapes especially for this release. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at Mint Condition!

    What can be said about the girl whose greatest friend was the Mist?

    It can be said she was never short of adventure, for each time the Mist cleared, it had a new surprise. Rabbits and rocking horses came out of hats the size of hills, armies of ants played in marching bands, deer danced, giraffes juggled, elephants tap-danced atop the moon, flowers bloomed in the sky, and stars shone on the ground, because, why can’t down be up?

    With the Mist there was always the kind of hocus pocus that twisted itself into a pocus hocus, a shenanigan or a hijinks so high it could not be jinxed, but it had to be jumped … By a fish flown by a boy from out of town … It was enough to make her giddy with happy.

    1. A Anaalivaihe - 10 11 2012 (Gatto Fritto Edit)
    2. B Sonny Okosun - Highlife (Dub Version)

    Welcome to the Sound Of Love International 001 sampler EP complied by Gatto Fritto.

    Love International is a festival held in Tisno, Croatia now moving into its third season. Held to a soundtrack of the very best of underground dance music and running 24 hours a day - from noon to night and back through again - full circle. This series, masterminded with London’s Balearic culture website, Test Pressing, is curated by some of our favourite artists and DJs. A place for them to choose 12 records close to their heart, and with ties to the festival, that they love and what to share with the world. So to the first compiler - Gatto Fritto a.k.a Ben Williams.

    A lifetime working in the better record shops of London and Berlin and DJing in Europe’s finest underground clubs, Ben is getting the props he deserves. Put into context, although not in a box, on line-ups curated by Call Super, Ben UFO and Palms Trax the word is spreading. It’s partially testament to the increased open mindedness of younger big room crowds but far more to Gatto’s ability as a DJ and a knack for finding an undiscovered mix of music that fits.

    Ahead of Ben's stellar and skilfully selected compilation for Love International we are happy to present you with 2 special selections from the album. On the A-side we are treated to a special Gatto Fritto edit of Anaalivahie's '10.11.2012', previously only available on a limited 7" single Ben tweaks this dubbed out afro-kosmiche gem in all the right places, this special edited version will appear on this sampler only. On the B-side we have Sonny Okosun's highly sought after boogie monster 'Highlife', a truly uplifting dancefloor bomb that will undoubtedly put smiles on faces when dropped at the right time, a real Gatto Fritto tune to the core.

    Musically adventurous, disparate yet harmonious and dance floor friendly. Clever trick, clever bloke. Ladies and gentlemen this is the sound of Love International.

    1. A. Catz 'N Dogz feat. Robert Owens - Fine Feeling
    2. B. Catz 'N Dogz and Joseph Ashworth - Factory Settings

    Catz ’N Dogz are some of our oldest extended Dirtybird Family, spanning multiple EPs, a couple albums, some remixes, and we even presented their very first release as ‘Catz N Dogz’ as they transitioned from their old 3 Channels alias in 2007. It's been over 4 years since they've been on the label, and we're ecstatic to have them back with "The Feelings Factory".

    "Fine Feelings" features the legendary vocalist Robert Owens, and sounds like a classic deep house track from the late 90's when no one called it deep house, they just danced to it all night in warehouses.

    "Factory Settings" includes additional production from London's Joseph Ashworth, and from the first note to the last its filled with driving intensity and an ascending cacophony of rhythms and voices.

    Welcome back fellas, we missed you.

    3. B1 Rhizome
    4. B2 Aspen

    Synkro AKA Joe McBride teams up with veteran Arovane AKA Uwe Zahn for a sublime collaborative EP on Apollo. ‘ Refractive (Index)’ sees the duo exploring their shared love of broken beats and dreamy soundscapes.

    The pair are also connected through their affection for Yamaha’s venerable handheld sequencer, the QY700 (also a favourite of dutch lo-fi house master Legowelt)

    Arovane a long time stalwart of the acclaimed City Centre Offices imprint explains: "Everything started with a detail in an interview with Joe that grabbed my attention. I spotted a QY700 sequencer from yamaha on one photo. I used this piece of gear for decades to sequence all of my hardware and to produce my music. It’s part of my trademark sound of rhythm programming."

    One of the factors that makes the QY700 beloved is it’s ability to change parameters in realtime to shuffle, shift, expand or compress the timing of each pattern independently. It’s touch can be felt throughout the oscillating rhythmic figures that wend through the gauzy pads and drifting melodies.

    "We share the same wavelength when it come to breakbeats, musical taste and melodies,” Arovane continues “This EP is the beginning of something special!"

Music to zone to through unfamiliar corners 'INTAZONEZ' is a 4 part quest constructed deep into the early hours.

    3. B1. Marquis Hawkes feat. Ursula Rucker - Don't U (Dubbed Out Vocal)
    4. B2. Marquis Hawkes - Don't Do Acid

    Marquis Hawkes is an alter ego adopted by long time electronic music producer Mark Hawkins, founded for his house music focussed activities. Hawkins decided it was time for a reboot after being head-hunted by old friends Dan Monox and Kenny Wasp, who had just founded Dixon Avenue Basement Jams in 2012, particularly as the material differed from what he’d previously released.

    Hawkins solidified his sound during this period, taking influence from house music’s Chicago, Detroit and New York home bases alongside the UK’s deep house sound. Fusing these styles with contemporary production values, he developed a style synonymous with his Marquis Hawkes alias.

    Whilst branching out to release on other labels like Clone and Cremé Organisation, he caught the attention of London club fabric’s artist-led label, Houndstooth. They signed him on a long term deal, giving visibility to his DJ profile that meant he could play music full-time.

    In 2016 his debut album ‘Social Housing’ was released to critical acclaim, and the following year, a stellar string of releases on Will Saul’s AUS Music label culminated in the ubiquitous club and festival hit, ‘The Basement Is Burning’. A track inspired by Hawkins’ own shocking experience of a fire in his apartment block, it was played heavily on radio across the summer of 2018.
    Looking forward, this new 12” EP for Houndstooth under the Hawkes alias is scheduled for release on June 29th, and features a vocal collaboration withUrsula Rucker, Hawkins is also pursuing other music projects and identities, some known, like his Juxta Position project, which he uses for more industrial but groove based techno material, but others which are more incognito, and may well remain as such.

    Johannes Albert is a producer as diverse as they come. Comfortable across all sub genres of dance music from deep house to italo disco, in Italy they call him Giovanni Alberto. He’s been praised by the likes BICEP, Gerd Janson, Lauer and the Keinemusik crew, and he’s only just getting started.

    The Dancing Plague EP is summer music for summer people. Opening with the hefty, wonky basslines of the club ready; TPTS. Gravy Train is a combination of grooving bass-lines and disco drums, the end result is a solid dancefloor stomper. The uniquely titled Pachanga follows, abundant with nu disco and italo references. This is a real summer track, as the sun sets in the city ahead of a huge party, the one that will entice the shyest of dancers to move. Keeping with the off the cuff track names, the EP finishes with the dusty, sun tinged Rainbow Pan.

    Over the past ten years the Needwant mantra has been to push the very best in new talent, having provided the platform for the likes of Kiwi, The Mekanism, Maxxi Soundsystem, The Revenge and many more.

    7. D1 Let it slide
    8. D2 La Sandunga

    Crosstown Rebels deliver their next album in the form of a masterful offering from Chic Miniature. The cosmic duo, Ernesto Ferreyra and Guillaume Coutu Dumont make a welcome return to the label with eight tracks of melodic bliss.

    Fourteen years in the making, a thread of mystery weaves its way through the tapestry of this melancholic LP. It’s a true journey through a sublime sonic soundscape. Opening track Adormecido is shrouded in mystery, closely followed by Miso Drunky with its tribal drums and dramatic synth stabs. Kaléidoscope bubbles up next, swiftly followed by Tilt with its genteel cowbell. Then comes Año Uno the first track created back in 2004 with its impressive church-like bells. Suki Ni is twinkling and sublime that flows into the delicate groove of Let It Slide, which samples an ambient rain storm. The album closes on La Sandunga gracefully littered with plentiful percussion.

    Of the album, the pair explain how they were “raised on old technology and integrated the newer technology in our everyday lives as it was developing” a fact that is clearly apparent upon listening to the album. They give a sonic hat tip to their “love of melancholic melodies….almost always rooted in the past, but to us, no time is attached. Are the new machines dreaming about the past, or are the new ones contemplating the future that lays ahead?”. The album proves their ability to fuse the new with the old to create an album bursting with timeless tracks.

    Ernesto Ferreyra and Guillaume Coutu Dumont’s partnership is a true meeting of musical minds. Their first release was gifted to us way back in 2005- the Conexión Califa EP released on German imprint Raum Musik. Since then they’ve released on Musique Risquée as well as a previous EP on Crosstown Rebels. Individually, they’ve released a plethora of music with Ferreyra also heading up his own label Loosen Up Records and Guillaume signing music to Musique Risquée amongst others.

Ella Mae Sueref - The album is influenced by Carnival and Latin sounds with Hip Hop drums and Soul roots - meeting in middle ground as an expression of the production duos upbringing, John’s heritage in Mauritius and Cliffords childhood in South America. Partnered with Ellas Spanish language fluency and soft Badhu acclaimed voice as previously heard on the single “Stop Rewind” credited by the like of Gilles Peterson and Mr. Scruff.

    The tracks were recorded on Garageband by Clifford Brown and Jeen Bassa with 2 Karaoke Microphones, mixed in Bath and later buried on a hard drive for over 6 years never to be heard again. Sliding into the forgotten darkness of lost tracks and rediscovered in 2017. The production, originally just an instrumental, was then found and reignited, revamped with a vocal insert from the wonderful Ella Mae Sueref.

    The 10 track album demonstrates a flurry of drums, latin inspired sampling, and mesmerizing vocals from start to finish. For the music and the lovers. Living room jams made in smoke. Banoffee xx
    In Loving memory of Anna Sueref.

    Ground is an Osaka native, but his soul is truly that of a nomad, traversing the planet, befriending kindred spirits found in humans, animals and plants. He is exceptionally receptive to the beauty in everything that surrounds him—the incidental music of a city street, the orchestral chaos of a scrambling radio, the syncopated grace of migrating birds, the simplicity of an isolated hand clap—and as his roadmap continuously unfolds, he accumulates a vast catalogue of visceral tools to musically recount his experiences. Sunizm is a cross section of the artist’s process—an array of complex microcosms overlapping to comprise a thematic whole—gathering field recordings, found instruments, jagged electronics, synthesized chanting, and weaving all into a dense narrative that appears obsessively constructed yet divinely improvised. Logos is the first of two singles surrounding the album and is complimented with a monster remix by Bartellow (a fellow ESP artist, collaborator and good friend of Ground) as well as a secret weapon b-side entitled Discopazzle, which is exclusive to this single release. Attention all humans, animals and plants, Ground and the ESP Institute present, Sunizm.

    Moss Co. continues into 2018 with Stephan Bazbaz & Asael Weiss’s ‘Only’ EP, a three tracker equipped with two original productions, complimented further via a remix from FUSE’s very own Rossko.

    Lead track ‘Only’, a collaborative effort between Bazbaz & Weiss, kicks things off with decidedly a stripped back sonic palette, rich in analogue warmth. Sparkling keys bounce off tripped-out atmospheres, as steady rolling beats and subs push the track onwards.

    The EP continues with Rossko’s ‘Only’ reinterpretation, an extremely accomplished debut remix that deftly draws from the original’s blissed out musicality, with renewed razor-sharp focus on low-end theory and percussive weight. A promising sign of things to come for this recently indoctrinated producer.

    Bazbaz closes off the package with ‘Tagzimi’, a solo endeavor that sees modulating dub chords trade blows with snappy percussion and rich pads, a beautifully constructed roller destined for long form sets during the early hours.

    Landing in June, the ‘Only’ EP is set to be a staple feature in the record bags of discerning DJ’s alike throughout the summer months and beyond.

    5. B3. Losing My Taste

    In 2015, something magical happened. We met a couple of talented young Swedes named Artur Brändström and Egil Kahlbom who excelled at composing and producing these lighthearted, breezy disco-hued house tracks (or house- hued disco tracks, perhaps) that both fit the aesthetic and character of LPH and brought something new into the fold. The result of that first encounter was Marathons, a full-length album, their debut to the world, and now, two years later, we're back for the much-anticipated follow-up.
    Rehearsal is a little briefer than its predecessor—it's five tracks—and has a markedly different tone, one that's less about dusty, sun-bleached samples and more about tightly-engineered and delicately-crafted songs. If the first effort was marked by its carefree naiveté, the sophomore effort is, well, something a bit more advanced or, perhaps, rehearsed.

    What hasn't changed, though, is these guys' ability to home in on grooves and coax something trasncednetally hooky, memorable out of them. The five tracks contained here are low-key in attitude but powerful and punchy in approach. They're uniquely juicy, nourishing numbers for mellow hours and fearlessly fun ditties for party hours.

    Lots of love went into the lot of them, and we hope all's you feel when you let them wash over you is that. Love.

    1. A1. Explore ft JAXN
    2. B1. Explore ft JAXN [Rich NxT Remix]
    3. B2. Black Lines

    Following his recent release on the See Double VA, rising talent Josh Baker finds a home once again on Luca Cazal and Brigante’s imprint with his Explore EP. Original FUSE London resident Rich NxT is also onboard to deliver an elevating remix.

    First supported by Romanian master Barac, title track Explore is a surefire weapon for the dancefloor. JAXN’s breathy vocals effortlessly complement the peak-time bass and glistening hi-hats. On the B-side, Rich NxT adds a funkier bassline and light keys for his rework of the title track. The EP closes with Black Lines, a more formidable number with Baker employing darker elements into his production. The talented producer explains “ after receiving some exceptional vocals from JAXN, ‘Explore’ wrote itself. I wanted to create a real peak-time song, one suited for all spaces and I’m happy to see it get consistently road-tested at DC10. ‘Black Lines’ is a moodier acid track that I feel compliments ‘Explore’ massively.”

    Since the tender age of 16, Josh Baker's passion and enthusiasm for house music has grown from strength to strength. The young Manchester producer also curates his own successful night, You&Me, which has since gone on to take place in Leeds, Newcastle and Ibiza. His musical output has garnered support from big names such as Apollonia, Richy Ahmed, Ben Rau and Rich NxT.

    3. B1. Butterflies (Dub Mix )
    4. B2. Butterflies (Live Mix)

    British producer Zepherin Saint has always been a man with a fierce passion for quality-strewn, vocal heavy deep house. A thoroughly captivating affair throughout, ‘Butterflies’ sees the producer return to his Tribe Records imprint alongside regular vocal collaborator, Miranda Nicole.

    Kicking off the release is the ‘Tribe Vocal Mix’- full of hazy, fuzzy sounds that play out beautifully. A refined house cut, it’s made all the more mesmerising by Nicole’s sultry vocal contribution. A perfect foil to Zepherin Saint’s beats, the coming together of both is truly a joy to behold. Bolstering the latter is a live mix, as well as an instrumental version, named here as the ’Tribestrumental’ offering.

    Zepherin Saint is a truly exciting artist and one whose stock continues to rise thanks to his infectious-sounding, afro-tinged house sound.

    2. B1. Stop Holdin Back
    3. B2. When Your X Wants You Back

    A true rarity from Salsoul's vast archive here, one for the bonafide boogie heads out there.
    This has gotta be one of the rarest Surface records in existence, 3 cuts of that amazing early 80's funk that only Surface can do!
    A licensed late 90's pressing of this particular EP became highly sought after and has since been impossible to track down for even the most dedicated diggers.
    3 full length jams presented here, including a wondrous mix from the legendary Shep Pettibone of the classic 'Falling In Love', also included are the previously unreleased 'Stop Holding Back' and 'When Your X Wants You Back'. This whole record is pure heat, one for the aficionados. Properly licensed, wonderfully remastered and reissued for the dancefloor! You're not gonna find a more solid, well rounded example of that killer post-disco, electronic funk than this collection of cuts. Essential. Snoozing not advised!
