    1. A1. Sembe
    2. A2. Anaata
    3. B1. Sembe (Dub)

    Finnish electro-tropical ensemble Maajo is delivering a new Queen Nanny EP with Ismaila Sané from Senegal. Currently based in Finland, Sané started his career as a dancer and percussionist in Dakar in 1974. He has since pursued an extensive international career and worked with the likes of Jimi Tenor and Piirpauke. Ismaila and Maajo have produced two powerful songs in Jola language, spoken in Casamance, Southern Senegal. Sèmbè is an off-beat mix of disco reggae grooves, dancehall rhythms, trancey synths, and African gospel. The dub version on the flipside does what a dub is supposed to do, strips the track to its bones for bass-heavy sound system. The second track, Anaata, is a dark and mellow dub disco groover with an equally sublime vocal performance from Ismaila Sané.

    Some of the most beloved music comes from heartbreak and loss. This 5-track EP by Honey Soundsystem’s Bézier was recorded in a vacant apartment unit in his grandmother’s (‘Amah’) property in Tainan, Taiwan. Having to make the 15+ hour journey from SF to Taiwan multiple times in 2018, Bézier set up shop in Amah’s house surrounded by his live touring setup, a microphone, and the memories of loved ones recently passed. Away from his San Francisco analogue synth-based studio, Robert Yang (aka Bézier) manipulated samples of his own vocals and mobile mono synths to tell his stories about returning home, honoring ancestry, and embrace life’s hardest challenges. The result is a deeply personal release with track titles named after landmarks surrounding Amah’s building, and songs both short and long, free of genre and tempo restrictions.

    « Remixes » is a meeting of French electronic champions.
    
French Touch veterans I:Cube and Chateau Flight, trendsetting DJ Raphael Top Secret and newcomers Flegon provide us with remixes of the autumn released LP « Sphere Of Existence » by Antoine Kogut.
    Where the LP explored atmospheric and experimental pop, « Remixes » gives us a perfect four tracker that is made for the dancefloor.

    On side A, Chateau Flight transforms the title track « Sphere Of Existence » into a 90’s Italo house banger while I:Cube does what he does best in his unexpected dub version.
 On the B side, Raphael Top Secret reworks « Current density » into a Hip House track full of jaunty vibrations and newcomer band/label Flegon fulfilled their goal of working with their all time favorite French Touch pioneer label Versatile giving us a Nu-Disco remix of the song « L ‘oeillet noir ».

    1. A1. See It Come Shining
    2. B1. Oceanways T150
    3. B2. Atlantis Transfer

    Time flies when you’re having fun and we can’t fathom how this can be Ben Sun’s 5th EP for Delusions Of Grandeur but it’s true enough and once again he comes up trumps in the form of the Place Of Worship EP. Having previously graced such esteemed imprints as Royal Oak, Tru Thoughts, Razor n Tape as well as his own vinyl-only label Voyeurhythm the London based Australian producer continues to be both highly regarded, yet somewhat under the radar but we’re sure that’s about to change with this incredible new three tracker.

    Opening up we have See It Come Shining, just the kind of life-affirming club track which seem to be in such short supply these days, but that we need now more than ever. Gospel flavoured piano chords tug on the heart strings whilst a simple, raw disco groove with added 909 punch creates a warmth and energy that transcends the dance floors that it’s destined to liberate.

    Flipping over we have Oceanways T150, a deep, analogue jam that harks back to simpler times when breakbeats collided with a house thump, uplifting pianos meld into punching basslines and discovering music through muffled old cassette mixtapes or patchy pirate radio reception was all we knew.

    Rounding off the EP we have the perfect closer Atlantis Transfer. Here Ben puts more early influences into the mixing pot with ambient washes cascading down over a sublime 90’s deep house bassline. Analogue hats and tripped-out sound FX skirt around a naive synth melody making for a heady late night treat to get lost in.

    DETROIT SWINDLE
    Nice and dreamy ethereal vibe on the whole ep! our pick would be oceanways T150

    JACQUES RENAULT/ WE PLAY HOUSE
    Always a pleasure to hear new music from Ben.

    ATJAZZ
    An incredibly stunning EP. Right up my street!

    FRED EVERYTHING
    Lovely stuff. Digging the recent balearic shift on Delusions, which is already one of my favorite labels. Ok, maybe not the easiest stuff to program in a night but so rewarding when you can manage to do so. Oceanways is my favorite of the bunch.

    SOUL CLAP
    Oooh. See It Come Shining is gorgeous! Ben Sun is always a fave and this EP is a welcome return...

    PONCHARTRAIN
    This album makes me miss the sunshine so much! Can't wait to give it a rinse this spring.

    1. A1. Light (High As You Can)
    2. B1. Trouble Glider
    3. B2. Trouble Glider Lauer Remix

    With a love for crystalline melodies, gentle pads, and elegant drum programming, Valencian producer Pépe has been handsomely traversing the realms of house, electro, and breakbeat for the last two years. Armed with a sound that is inherently sincere, moody, and emotive, he has fostered a strong reputation from fans and press alike, including being awarded 2018’s "Spanish Producer of the Year" in DJ Mag.

    After noticed releases on Lobster Theremin, Deep Sea Frequency and Renascence and remixes for RAMP Recordings, Anti Skate, Easytiiger and Midnight Themes, Pépe lands on Loose Fit, a young and exciting imprint with affiliations to Manchester and Tokyo and a current homebase of Berlin.

    Starting out with a party series in Manchester which brought the likes of Dark Sky, Brassica, Maxxi Soundsystem and more to the city, the Loose Fit label has set its sights on the meeting ground between italo, electro and dream house, with the label’s first two releases coming courtesy of Just Breathe and most recently, Jordan & Brassica, which reached the second spot on Beatport's indie dance releases in a matter of days.

    On his Loose Fit debut, Pépe shoots for scintillating rave euphoria across two striking originals. “Light (High As You Can)” is pure featherweight breaks with gleaming synths and a simple but polished vocal sample that glides through the mix. “Trouble Glider” aims for similar emotional heights, all in dopamine surge arps and piano house euphorics. Ever the master remixer, Lauer jumps in to close the EP subtly reshaping “Trouble Glider” into the main stage ready banger that it was destined to become.

    Roy returns (triumphantly) to our lovely little label. And what a return it is. The reactions to both "Rumbala" and "Megakraft" have been immense. Just try to keep your dance floors hands down. Well, we must admit it is more a single hand in the air after the break kind of deal (think Italians at parties in Ibiza) but a hand none the less. Seriously though, these tunes are going to be heard all summer long. On the flip side are two more wistful house music lullabies. Don't miss them either as the moods they conjure are magical.

    4. B2. Never Get Enough

    2019 is shaping up to be a great year yet with more of the same focus on championing new and emerging artists; alongside the more established. But before all that..

    Belfast is the first port of call as DJ and producer Jordan delivers a variety of party thumpers. With thanks to AVA festival and the invincible Bicep going from strength to strength; the Belfast scene is enjoying a moment with the likes of Bobby Analog, Cromby and Hammer all breaking through to greater recognition. Jordan has equally been keeping busy between releases on Abandon Silence and launching his own edits label through Lobster Theremin..

    So the stars are aligning for this release, which typifies what the label is about. Each track could easily be the ‘A1’ and it’s already been doing the damage with the likes of Tim Sweeney, Erol Alkan and a select few, until now.. Expect to hear much more from each over the year ahead.

    A very significant release for one records this time round, with the label going in to its tenth year the first record of 2019 comes from Subb-an and Adam Shelton and features music made at a very important time for them. It was the last session done in the Berlin studio before Subb-an made is move back to the Uk. The Twilight EP will be one records 045 and remixing the A1 track titled Twilight is a personal favourite of the Label Metrolux’s XDB, a dj and producer that comes with a firm stamp of quality, playing at one records parties of late around Europe and delivering the perfect remix it is a real honour for the label to have XDB on board.
    045 also features a space dub of Twilight and a third track titled Mirage, a 90’s house work out aimed purely for the dance floor.

    1. A1. Melencolia V
    2. B1. Invidiosa

    Koehler was hurled headlong flaming from the ethereal sky. This is his first offering for the ESP Institute. Side A recalls the hazy memory of an ear-worm chant heard over a decade ago on the streets of Thailand, a melody that since haunted the artist and has finally been exorcised by his own hand in the shape of 'Melencolia V'. Somewhere between an enchanted bashment and a sailor’s watering hole, Koehler found a gargantuan kick drum that lands solely on the 4, slammed it together with a wide pulsing bassline and brutalized Dancehall snare, then laced it all up with his elusive synth melody. Add to this a generous sprinkle of finely-ground cosmic dust and we’re all tripping the light fantastic. On the flip side, the artist buckles up for a rough and rapid-paced journey with 'Invidiosa' — a relentless snare scrapes, gouges and corrodes over 7 minutes, coupling with a simplistic bass loop and swiftly marauding through a demented assembly line, accumulating various nuts and bolts of instrumentation along the way — an undeniable dancefloor exciter for those hours when the club becomes unhinged, dancing becomes raving, and slightly more audacious folk can channel their inner truth. These two songs will have you question your existence.

    3. B1. White Atlas
    4. B2. Distant Borders

    Marino first got our attention with a tune called ‚Can’t feel‘ a few years back. We played that track for ages, followed him since then and his music always found a way into our sets. Since we started the Siamese label he was always on the wish list to make a record for us and after his successful debut on the latest ‚Siamese Anthology‘ EP we can finally reveal a full EP from Marino Canal.

    The title track ‚A Fire In The Sun‘ has been a permanent tool for us since we got it. It is changing the mood especially in the first part of our sets, letting us go many directions after it. It‘s calm but powerful, emerges suddenly but then goes back to its steady groove.

    ‚Her Perfect Sky‘ is Adrian Schweizer‘s favourite and was featured in the recent and highly anticipated Cercle set we played right in the French Alps. It did fit perfectly to the surrounding and we really had the perfect sky that day.

    Next up is ‚White Atlas‘ which reminds us a bit of the minimal era. There have been a few tracks back then which had enormous depth and warmth and this one goes a bit into this direction, with a catchy but darkish melody.

    ‚Distant Borders‘ marks the perfect finish for us, a nicely moody track that doesn’t try to steal the show but works in its own way.

    1. A. More Than I Ever Thought I Could
    2. B. The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

    It’s my great pleasure to announce the second release on LFT, and my debut record as my birth name, Jordon Alexander, “THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER”.

    These songs were written over the last couple months of what was one of, if not the most turbulent, formative and important years of my life. These songs are about self-discovery, who I am and who I want to be.

    I thought they were the perfect introduction to all the new material I have coming in 2019, as Mall Grab, and Jordon Alexander.

    “More Than I Ever Thought I Could” is an electro-esque excursion which has been serving as a last track in many of my sets and I’ve been waiting to share since it was recorded. The b side “The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter” named after Carson Mcullers’ 1940 novel, samples the film adaptation and is a melancholy instrumental journey recalling endless hours spent daydreaming looking out train and car windows around the globe.

    1. A1. Devil Trail
    2. B1. Telework Titan
    3. B2. Cyber Fex

    A third of Italian production act Agents Of Time, Sharp Felon loops out of the trio’s orbit to land his debut solo EP on Maceo Plex’s Lone Romantic, ‘Let The Game Begin’ – featuring three stunt-driving cosmonautical bangers that aim to abolish all sense of gravity in the club and beyond. Breaking in at fierce speed, ‘Devil Trail’ attacks pedal to the metal and leaves prismatic wisps of vapor in its wake. A proper electro-magnetic dasher, the track alternates steady shooting sequences of 303-marinated bass with eloquent kosmische-indebted synth maneuvers and laser-precise breaks, all joining forces to have your feet shuffling and mind drifting up into higher spheres of consciousness in one potent backhanded caress.

    A more straightforward affair, B-side opener ‘Telework Titan’ lifts its listener off to a further compelling state of meditative balance through a nonetheless muscular groove and epic-sized sub-bass moves. Cruising in the upper layers of the stratosphere, Sharp Felon’s stamps on the accelerator of his shark-mouthed spaceship and hedgehops across craggy alien reliefs with personal hands-on skills. Intergalactic transmissions announce an imminent extra-terrestrial invasion, it’s time to tune out and enter the melee. Laser guns blazing and acid stabs smoking, ‘Cyber Fex’ nose-dives in an enemy-occupied territory and washes over the ground brawl like a hi-tech tsunami. Purebred Donald-ian face-melter in sheer Dopplereffekt meets Arpanet fashion, this one lacks no oomph.

    1. A. Citizen // Nowhere (Manni Dee Remix)
    2. B1. Glitter (Anatasia Kristensen Remix)
    3. B2. Diminuendo (Patrick Russell Remix)

    Daniel Avery broadens the exquisite sonic universe established on last year’s critically-acclaimed sophomore LP Song For Alpha, presenting the collected B-sides & Remixes. Showcasing cuts from the album’s writing and recording process, as well, Avery also invites a number of his contemporaries and some of the most vital underground producers in the world to rework his original material, with transformative results.

    The frosty melancholy of Citizen // Nowhere is reworked by London producer Manni Dee into something altogether monstrous. Introducing itself with a kick drum powerful enough to level a warehouse, and only getting more urgent from there forward, Dee’s remix blends a knowing rave glint in the eye with a nonetheless uncompromising stance.

    The Copenhagen-via-Moscow producer Anastasia Kristensen immediately justifies her status as a rapidly rising talent on the scene, locking into a delicate yet no less powerful groove for her sparkling remix of Glitter. Seamlessly heightening the almost meditative qualities of Avery’s original, she weaves a blissful rhythmic trip, taking in razor-sharp percussions and spectral dub techno.

    A longstanding fixture on the Midwest US rave scene, Patrick Russell applies his typical grit to ‘Song For Alpha’s firmly dancefloor focused centrepiece, Diminuendo. In subtly shifting the focus to the track’s passages of overwhelming feedback, he sculpts a black hole of snarling electro and piston-like breaks, sure to prove an inviting wormhole to those willing to surrender further, deeper and darker.

    ‘Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Volume One.1: Coursework’ was created using a newly-formed piece called ‘Bongo Glow’ and reworkings of three tracks from the original album.
    ‘Bongo Glow’, a work in progress at the time, was finished using the same processes as ‘CCCLV1’ so that it could appear on the Japanese release of the album.

    The additional three reworkings were created without direct instruction as an experiment to see how they changed with input from external sources.
    Daniel Avery’s remix of ‘Usyring’ is a slow building majestic tome that comes full circle.

    The Radiophonic Workshop took ‘Blissters’ and created a more experimental reworking in their unique style.

    Chris Liebing gave ‘Tones Map’ a brooding anthemic feel, adding his Slow Burn remix technique.

    10. D2. Lost Youth

    After a brief wander ‘round the garden, Chilean-born Ricardo Tobar returns to the ESP Institute bearing earthly delights. With 2017’s Liturgia, he introduced his creative point-of-view—instantly substantiating a sense of rhythm that was deliberately complex yet slightly rough around the edges, while touching upon his musical origins from the guitar-driven corners of psychedelia— however with his debut 2xLP Continuidad, he leaves us gobsmacked and seeking shelter as he leaps from dancefloor comforts and descends into absolute chaos (in more ways than one). Emotionally, the artist has crossed all previously self-imposed and subconscious thresholds, putting his true imagination on display and exposing an unwavering attraction to all things loud, orgasmic and transcendent. He’s not subtly hinting at a fetish, but opening his arms wide with conviction, abandoning genre taboos and personally inviting everyone to join his enchanted caravan. Sonically, his appetite for intensity is clear throughout—epic chord changes, ascending peaks in arrangement, accumulating layers of grit that build into impenetrable blankets of distortion and feedback—a kind of aural hedonism that translates visually into the potent video abstractions our Mario Hugo has summoned for the album’s packaging. This might all sound like a warning for Hurricane Ricardo, but fear not, listeners will still find some security in the album’s rhythmic underpinnings, and although this foray into primitive, ritualistic bang-the-drum percussion is significantly more dangerous than his previous programming, its the imperfection in his passionate studio performances that imbue Continuidad with something remarkably human.

    Originally released on Rabbit City Records as a CD collection taken from the first batch of EP's on Rabbit City. Remastered and offered by Mike Wells on his own FMM imprint. Definitely one of my all time favourites from 1992, Force Mass Motions early work was very distinctive. A sound that owed a lot to how Mike Wells sourced a lot of his sounds. Listening to and taping Kiss FM and sampling it. With a home built sound card his brother made an Amiga was the centre of the studio. All the music was mixed down through an old Broadcast desk using a few clever delay line tricks that give the music a lot of depth. Very distinctive, totally original the music was caned by all the DJ's.

    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.

    LIMITED EDITION RUN OF 200

    A gem of an EP, the "Untitled" track could easily have been mistaken for a Warp Records release or AFX. Techno to drive you nuts.
    Written by my Sound Designer friend, Michael Bolton, at University in 1998.

    The Driving Me Nuts track is a sample of our tutors reaction to a track I made she hated.

    Voodoo Dance Malarky's intro would be worthy of a Chemical Bros track, full of little surprises and an evil break at the end.

    Originally recorded to tape. Cleaned up by me years later, remastered by Subvert Central Mastering and cut at Curve Pusher. Pressing by Vinyl Presents on clear Vinyl.

    The latest addition to the James Holden archive is an album of solo synth work originally written to accompany the critically-acclaimed documentary ‘A Cambodian Spring’: fourteen tracks of pulsing melancholy, foreboding drone and even the occasional burst of beatless trance in the form of the uplifting arpeggios of surefire album highlight ‘Solidarity Theme’.

    Picking up where his classic 2013 album ‘The Inheritors’ left off (and giving ‘Self-Playing Schmaltz’ a new cinematic airing) Holden’s debut soundtrack project combines the sound palette of his beloved Prophet 600 with a cranky old Hammond organ to showcase the full breadth of his musical tastes across the epic documentary format.

    The LP includes digital download code and sleevenotes by ‘Imaginary Cities’ author Darran Anderson.

    Lavascar is a sound and music project by creative instigator and provocateur Michèle Lamy, multi-disciplinary artist Nico Vascellari and Lamy’s daughter, the artist Scarlett Rouge.

    Following the release of their debut album A Dream Deferred in 2017 – which was inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem Montage Of A Dream Deferred, the trio will release new album Garden Of Memory through The Vinyl Factory label.

    Drawing on the work of Lebanese-American poet, journalist and artist Etel Adnan, Garden Of Memory explores the tension between the organic and industrial, layering both Rouge and Lamy’s idiosyncratic delivery over Vascellari’s ambient and EBM-influenced electronics. After Vascellari described the debut LP as “an evocation of Michèle Lamy sitting in a cave, surrounded by wild beasts ready to devour her”, Lamy says the new record has loftier concerns: “So far it seems like we are more in the cosmos… We are coming out of the hole!” Lamy continues: “I like poetry, I don’t like when there is sentence that tells you everything, I like suggestion.” It was for this reason that Lamy was drawn to the 93-year-old Adnan – “a woman explaining what’s going on in life. We can say everything is political, this is especially important.” It’s a sentiment that Scarlett Rouge echoes: “She wrote political poetry, and she is a journalist, so that’s why I think when Michèle discovered her there was an immediate sense that this is now what needs to be felt and said.’

    Closely working with legendary producer Tobias Levin from Hamburg, the band have developed and recorded the ten songs over the course of two years. Picture Northern creatures sweating out their melancholy in the Southern sun. As the wind carries the beats from the beach disco across the bay, Chopin, Vodka shot in hand, imagines writing music based on the build of crystals. To the side of the composer, the rhythm section gets restless. The thrum of Eastern European electronics pulsates in their brains. “Don’t work yourselves to death”, one of them shouts, “it’s not our fate. Let’s go dancing, everything must change”, adds another, and “sun screen’s on the house!” This is a glimpse of the world Bonjour Trieste unfolds.

    Track Listing TBC

    This year Kevin Saunderson, Ann Saunderson and Paris Grey, collectively known as the legendary band Inner City, release 'Future', their first entirely new material since parting company in 2001, written and produced in collaboration with another Detroit legend, namely Kenny Larkin.

    The track marks a welcome return for a group that combined the tough, futuristic grooves of the Detroit scene with the vocal energy of R&B and gospel and helped to define the period in which house and techno moved from underground phenomena to top 10 material, paving the way for hundreds of dance hits to come.

    ‘Future’ is devastatingly catchy and highly emotional, exhibiting all the soulful flavours and qualities you would expect from these celebrated producers and singers. Masterfully re-edited by Carl Craig this track ascends to a higher place whilst Kenny Larkin is on remix duties, beautifully reworking the original into a techno infused monster with intoxicating staccato vocals.
