    1. A1. Oba Lata
    2. B1. Oba Lata (NameBrandSound Remix)
    3. B2. Dakar

    Written by Chris Franck and Davide Giovaninni, Oba Lata draws on traditional Yoruban chant blending it with a live afro-beat groove. Edgy, rhythmical analogue synths, vocals, guitars and percussion tied together by the clave and driving afro bassline make this a credible dance floor contender. The vocals honour "Obatala", one of the main Orishas in Yoruban culture. He is seen as the creator of earth and a lover of peace and harmony.

    NameBrandSound are IG Culture and Alex Phountzi. The duo were part of the original West London broken beat scene and are known for their involvement with New Sector Movements and Bugz in the Attic. This remix draws on some of the modern African rhythms like Gqom (Durban - South Africa) and Coupé-Décalé (Ivory Coast via Paris) and combines them with their own "bruk" sound. Stripped back vocals and instrumentation make this a remix focused heavily on groove.

    This instrumental track 'Dakar' is the result of a recent trip to Senegal during the period of Ramadan. It features an 8 piece woodwind/horn section recorded in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) which has been beautifully arranged by Rafael Martini. A mid tempo groove leaning heavily towards north africa combining acoustic and electronic elements to create a deep modal feel and mood.

    1. A1. Doomed To Live (Baldelli & Dionigi Nu Disco Remix)
    2. A2. Doomed To Live (Baldelli & Dionigi Dub Mix)
    3. B1. Doomed To Live (Davide Squillace Ethnik Remix)

    Mokadelic - Doomed to Live is the theme tune to the hit Sky original series Gomorra. In celebration of the enchanting classic, Crosstown Rebels commissioned Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi, who produce two stunning ‘Nu Disco’ and ‘Dub’ remixes and Davide Squillace, who provides the equally impressive ‘Ethnik’ remix.

    Based on the acclaimed book of the Neapolitan writer Roberto Saviano, Gomorra, is focused on the fierce Neapolitan crime organization, depicting street-level crime and its hierarchical organization from the pavement, all the way up to regional government offices. The original theme tune played a significant part in the success of the show and was quickly commissioned to be remixed. The end result of which is a stunning release featuring a selection of Italy’s seminal artists, who each represent a different aspect of the country’s long-standing affiliation to club music and culture.

    Baldelli and Dionigi’s Nu Disco remix combines cosmic synth stabs alongside otherworldly pads to form a meaningful astral cut, whilst the duos Dub mix features swinging drum solos and an infectious wooing vocal throughout. Davide Squillace’s Ethnik remix of Doomed to Live is a tribal fashion, as hollow drums pave the way for a soothing, emotionally charged piano key that runs alongside shimmering Maraca sounds.

    Daniele Baldelli is a veteran of the scene and considered by many to be the pioneer of Cosmic Disco, a sound that first came about during his club residencies at Italy’s Cosmic and Baia Degli Angeli. On top of this, Baldelli’s collaborator Marco Dionigi held a residency at Verona’s Alter Ego club for twenty years. Born in Italy’s Siena, it was a trip to London that ignited Davide Squillace’s passion for electronic music. The Italian native debuted as a Circoloco resident in 2007, and has founded multiple labels since, including Sketch, Hideout and Titbit.

    Rarely does an artist pay homage to the classics like Dimitri From Paris.

In 2018 he released his “lifetime achievement” on Glitterbox, with the strictly limited pressing of the ‘Dimitri From Paris presents Le Chic Remix’ boxset. Now the 12’s have their own separate outings, bringing greater focus onto the individual productions, as each vinyl features two of the incredible Dimitri remixes, along with their respective instrumentals on the B-Side. On this release we hear ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’ get the Dimitri treatment that showcases unheard sections from the master tapes, followed by Norma Jean Wright’s life-affirming ‘Saturday’, remixed to cinematic proportions once again by Dimitri.

    After signing on with Gatto Fritto’s mind-melting Sound of Love International Volume 1, we’re back, we can smell summer and we’re putting you in the capable hands of festival favourites, Washington DC’s Beautiful Swimmers.

    A beautiful swimmer is a small blue crab. The Beautiful Swimmers are Ari Goldman and Andrew Field-Pickering (AKA Max D). And you, my friend, are about to get high on the happy. They’re here to take you on a gleeful joyride around their collective musical imagination.

    The Swimmers are full-bore record enthusiasts you see, but whereas you might associate this with squirrelly, exclusive and crabby sorts, they are inclusive, human and warm. It’s a wide-eyed ebullient romp and the joy of discovery is one to share. And to see them DJ IS a joy - they’re having at least
    as much fun as anyone else in the room, locked together tight, riding the same wave.

    So even when shit gets somewhat darker, the tempos higher and sounds gnarlier (Analogous Doom) the world is never grey. When we’re stone cold balearic in the Adriatic (Plunky) the vibe is up, young and fun. Banging them B’more house beats? Well, you’re probably going to be recognising a welcoming RnB sample (KW Griff).

    We’ve also been blessed with some Swimmer’s specials in the shape of ‘Blow Up Girl’ and ‘Living in a Zone’. Exclusive.

    Ari and Andrew have previously worked in dog and childcare respectively. If this compilation were a dog it’d be a “rascal”, if it were a kid it’d be “spirited”. We can’t think of anyone better to be your guides, as they themselves might say, “it’s a vibe”.

    This is the sound of Love International. Part Two.

    Food Music is massively privileged to officially bring you Xpansions “Move Your Body”, as the next instalment of Shadow Child’s ‘Curated by’ series.

    With all manner of DJs reaching for the original 1990 hit still to this day, we’ve remastered it exclusively to vinyl and brought you fully official reworks from today’s elite.

    Using original salvaged parts from the Xpansions vaults, we have remixes from Krystal Klear, Rebūke, and Loods who all bring a fresh take as we enter summer 2019.

    Krystal Klear heads up the mix package, taking us into electronic bliss with his sublimely fresh synth stabs and a huge breakdown that will tease all your senses.

    Rebūke’s massive techno twister is set for the big rooms too, with a new riff following the bassline melody, trippy vocal production, rolling percussion and his trademark crescendo’s.

    Finally, Loods takes us on a retro house tip with pulsating hi-hats and a new take on the melody with bumping bassline’s and energy.

    2. B1. Noir & Haze - Around (Solomun Vox - Moodymann Edit)
    3. B2. Chicken Lips - He Not In

    4 To The Floor is committed to delivering seminal house music to wax, making sought after heritage tracks readily available on vinyl for crate diggers to add to their collections. Classics Volume 2 kicks off with a slice of Defected 2012 goodness; ‘Around (Solomun Vox)’ by Noir & Haze. When Solomun took his turn at remixing this Ibiza anthem, it was heard everywhere from Hackney warehouses to Pacha Ibiza, and showed a different side to the heavier original. On the B-Side is the Moodymann Edit, where he makes subtle changes to Solomun’s mix by interweaving tribal drums and stripping back some of the techier elements, followed by Chicken Lips’ electro banger ‘He Not In’ which thunders through. An instantly recognisable record, even if they’re not aware of its name or who wrote it, with an unmistakable bassline that has truly stood the test of time.

    4. B2. Sauce

    "The Middle Passage was the triangular sailing route from English ports, to capture Africans from the continent’s west coast, and sell them into slavery throughout the United States and Caribbean islands. This labour of greed resulted in over a million deaths, the American scam, and astigmatisms of oppression that still resonate on all sides of its legacy. Just as cells pass the memory of past lives to an unknowing infant, we bear the scars of our inheritance with pride, faith and sometimes, resentment.” Dave Giles II (Dave + Sam)

    Dave + Sam are the Brooklyn based duo making house music with a message. With Dave Giles in control of vocals and Sam O.B. handling production, the pair’s unique style captured the attention of Classic Music Company, their debut ‘Middle Passage EP’ now offering a 12” preview of their forthcoming album on the label. Opening the A-Side ‘Til The World Blow Up’ is a call for unapologetic expression featuring house legend Mike Dunn, followed by the ‘Sauce’ Instrumental, a blissed-out vibey mix, stripped back and refined. The B-Side is comprised of ‘Day One (Oh Baby)’, a nostalgic love letter about stepping into tomorrow, with a more dance focussed tone to the emotive A-Side. Rounding off the release is ‘Sauce’ where Dave’s spoken vocal accompanies Sam’s Afrobeat-influenced production, resulting in a decidedly cool track. If this is a preview into the world of Dave + Sam, this 12” release holds the album in high expectations.

    Limited to 250 copies, hand numbered and includes sticker.

    4. B2. Silly Acid ft. Nikoss

    Berlin based talent Black Loops arrives on Madhouse Records to deliver his four-track ‘JAH Love’ EP this April, featuring two cuts alongside Nikoss.

    With releases on Toy Tonics, Freerange, Pets Recordings and Neovinyl to name just a few, Riccardo Paffetti aka Black Loops has built a stellar reputation as one of house music's most consistent and impressive names since making his production debut back in 2013. A skilful hand both within the studio and behind the decks, the Italian's slick blend of deep and soulful house music takes cues and inspiration from funk, disco and beyond, with his latest batch of productions coming in the form of his ‘JAH Love’ EP on Madhouse Records this April, featuring New Zealand producer and musician Nikoss.

    Title track ‘JAH Love’ opens the package through a smooth blend of skipping percussion, infectious vocal samples and funk heavy instrumentation, before ‘Your Mind’ introduces the first of two productions alongside Nikoss as rich piano melodies and acid-tinged bass patterns merge effortlessly throughout the track’s six-and- a-half-minute duration.

    On the flip, ‘NYC Dirty Talks’ takes a trip across the Atlantic as resonant pads and slick drum licks combine to reveal a production that would find itself perfectly at home within any Kerri Chandler set, before rounding out proceedings with the bubbling 303 driven ‘Silly Acid’ once again in partnership with Nikoss, guided by bright keys, soft chords and vibrant low-end tones.

    2. B1. Raise It Up
    3. B2. Just A Memory

    Hugo Mari, formerly known as Books, has been receiving a lot of welldeserved love of late, and for good reason. Even though the London-based producer has been delivering respected dance-floor cuts and Edits on labels such as Omena, XVI and Sound Of Speed, his most recent release on Detroit Swindles’ Heist has really helped put him on the map. Having remixed Dele Sosimi and been remixed by Laurence Guy and Kai Alce, Hugo is moving in the right circles and it’s only a matter of time before he really gets the recognition he deserves.

    His debut EP for Freerange is aptly titled Unalloyed Pleasure and consists of three originals that will give you and the dance floor just that. The lead track manages to meld slamming kicks, distorted bassline, deep, cinematic strings, disco hats and cut up spoken word into something fresh and unique.

    Raise It Up sees Hugo go full on euphoric disco mode with an uplifting slice of sun-drenched soul just perfect for the summer months ahead. Lush Philly strings and vocal sample bring a classic vibe and catchy hook to the party.

    Closing out this brilliant EP we have Just A Memory, a jazzier and more pensive slice of deep house music with upright bassline and familiar Rhodes sample taking centre-stage. Snippets of vocal float in and out of focus whilst the rolling, percussive groove brings an immersive energy that locks you in to it’s seductive mood.

    4. B2. Heart

    The HARP EP is to be released on PRAH Recordings and offers a balance of movement and feeling. ‘Banshee’ and ‘Feeler’ are both dance tracks intended for the dancefloor, whereas ‘Why Can’t I Remember Your Name’ and ‘Heart’ are two tracks meant for times of contemplation.

    Inspired by the time when hardware was the only real option for making dance music, applying the same limitation and tactile approach lead to the creation of these tunes from a technical perspective. The equipment used was primarily analog and outboard, with the utilisation of tape for recording ‘Banshee’.

    London via Margate composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Raven has collaborated with many well-respected artists including Kate Tempest, Paul Weller, Mica Levi, Kwes and Bullion. His music upholds a balance between the orchestral and electronic, abstract and conventional. Parallels can be drawn to the artist Arthur Russell,
    in terms of their diversity, creating tracks you can dance to, but also songs and music for reflection.

    All tracks are taken from the results of the second week of Raven’s PRAH residency in Margate which has seen the likes of Kelsey Lu, Adult Jazz, Ben Vince, Lone Taxidermist, James Greenwood, Deep Throat Choir, Flamingods Lung Dart & London Contemporary Orchestra. Each have spent time writing and recording in the studios
    as part of a free artist residency program offered by PRAH Recordings’ arts wing the PRAH Foundation.

    Music by: Mental Remedy. Produced by Joaquin Joe Claussell For Sacred Rhythm Music & Cosmic Arts

    Although the music on this CD Album was written, produced and performed by Joaquin Joe Claussell aka "Mental Remedy." it should not be mistaken as a Mental Remedy album. What is this, however, is a music soundtrack based on a story which was shared with Joaquin Joe Claussell by a good friend and fellow artist Naoyo Terada.

    Born and Raised in Japan, Naoyo set out on a journey to America that began around 20 years ago. In pursuing her dream and new way of life; Naoyo set her sights on America. While there and within a relatively short period of time, she has been blessed with valuable lessons, as well as gained profound insights that would not only bring out from within-her calling as an artist, but more profound, bestow upon her lessons on spirituality, creativity and a love for music that would dramatically change her life moving forward…

    It is important that you the listener are made aware that, “This is not a usual dance music CD.” Rather, it should be listened and absorbed as conscious, cosmic feel good music. But only if you open your mind and let a stranger in. The harmonic tones will do the rest of the healing…

    Next up in this series is a man that needs no introduction. A Note from The Artist himself... "It’s been a long time in the making, but to finally release a piece of art with Joe is a dream come true. 'Teardrops' is part of a whole series of music I wrote just after my daughter’s birth, and I think you can hear that in the music. And to release it on such a dope label is a special thing for me. (and Winni) I wanted to do something different. Something out of the ordinary that stands out...I think a 5min beat-less intro is about as brave as I could be. I want to thank Brother Joe Claussell for his full support and belief in my music and me as a musician since the late 90's. With peace and Respects, Vince."

    Like its predecessor, this is a Limited Release. Don’t Sleep!

    4. B1. Termina
    5. B2. Spore

    R&S welcome emerging UK bass and techno producer Yak AKA John Randall for a 5 track EP of rugged broken beat techno, following up stellar EPs for Version, Martyn's label 3024, and VA releases on Le Chatroom and Brotherhood Soundsystem.

    A classically trained instrumentalist primarily based in Sheffield, Randall began making his name as a resident at the cities seminal Pretty Pretty Good parties, quickly picking up the production bug and in recent years scoring a number of heaters, most notably the propulsive techno of 2017’s Mido EP on Version which reached the top of Phonica’s illustrious
    Singles of the Year list.

    Finding a kinship with the off-kilter grooves found on Swamp 81, Hessle Audio, Livity Sound and Timedance amongst others, Randall's releases have been tipped by the likes of Ben UFO, Martyn, Objekt, Call Super, Laurel Halo and Midland and marked him out as a name to watch.

    Restless rhythms are in full attendance in the inspired rush of the tracks 'Wide Eye' & 'Spore'; "I started them the day after going to a sick party when the energy from the previous night was still fresh in my mind". The idea for the track 'Skooma' came to Randall while at home messing with foley samples and processing random noises like scissors cutting and paper being crunched. 'Termina' was constructed after a week long binge of listening to ambient soundscapes, movie & video game soundtracks and fellow R&S allum DjRum's album on repeat.

    Randall's attention to detail and sonic craftsmanship alongside irresistible rhythms are a key part of what makes Yak music so alluring. “The music I make is always underlaid with a strong percussive foundation first and foremost," Randall explains "I think interesting and groovy percussion makes the difference between a track that's cool to listen to and a track that makes you move your body.”

    4. B2. The Struggle

    Just under a year after their last big impression on Rekids, Private Press are
    back with four more of their brilliant big room techno cuts.

    This Polish pair hail from Warsaw and are focused on producing high energy and
    dubbed out techno. Already this year they have released on the Ziema label and
    had a strong 2018 two EPs on the highly regarded Indigo Area. Their powerful
    sound is a perfect fit with the no frills Rekids label and these four tracks all do
    plenty of damage.

    Opener ‘Traces to Nowhere’ is an impossibly bristling track with razor sharp synth
    stabs and jostling drums that are redolent of the masterful Shed. Part old school,
    part a vision of the future, it is impeccably produced.

    ‘Paper Clip’ is a haunting, high speed dub techno trip with eerie chords and sound
    design that keep you on edge, and ‘Wet Moon’ is a broken beat masterclass with
    sirens, tense breakdowns and icy hi hat ringlets that is archetypal club weaponry.
    Last but not least, the warm, atmospheric and unrelenting banger that is ‘The
    Struggle’ sweeps you up and carries you away on a classy techno vibe and rolling
    drums that you could listen to for days.

    This is a devastating EP of high impact, high quality techno.

    “Synthesizers amassed through the years, which on this album, conceived with precision and care over the course of one year, reveal their essence –and more importantly, their soul, going from very cinematographic parts to very direct others. Between start and finish, a singular floating and inventive pop music unfolds. An upgraded form of instrumental electronic music, that takes the listener very far, and very high, perfectly mixing both musicians world, like fruitful pictures arisen from a desert that forgot to be arid. Their mirages are inventive, their mirages are fertile.” Joseph Ghosn
