    Dusty archives, the backrooms of record stores, private reel to reel stashes, master tapes - these are the environs of the Dynamic Range experience. Dynamic Range is a label focused on unearthing deep Soul, Funk and Disco jams that continue to resonate with todays dancers and DJ's. Time spent scouring the bowels of the majors and independents has unsurprisingly resulted in numerous gems being added to the DR wants list. High quality, fully licensed reissues are the order of the day, always taken from the correct master source and re-presented to hungry record heads the world over. To repeat, this is a fully legit operation - Avoid the sharks at all costs!

    Javaroo are perhaps not the most well known of Soul / Funk acts, but this UK outfit dropped on full length LP in 1980 that yielded the monstrous 'Breakin In' that has become a hugely sought after 12" single that is a bonafide killer in the AOR / Modern style. It's no surprise then, that this bullet was penned by none other than Heatwave's head honcho, the late, great Rod Temperton. A true visionary and legendary figure in the music industry, Temperton's skills wouls touch the careers of luminaries such as Michael Jackson, George Benson, Quincy Jones & many more. Not bad for a lad from Cleethorpes! 'Breakin In' is one of those records that sends the dance wild, it has had collectors and DJ's clamouring for a copy for many years with the deepest selectors guarding the secret! This is a fully legit repress, complete with Capitol Records OG 12" artwork, featuring the hot as long version 'Breakin In' backed with 'Change It Up' and 'Bring Out The Women' as per the 1980 promo 12" release. Incredible, essential and funky - get some Javaroo into your life!

    2. AA. Don’t You Want My Love (Cratebug’s More Love Remix)

    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; ‘Don’t You Want My Love’ is one of those records. Four decades after its original release in 1979, the record has become a favourite with the Glitterbox crowds. Following on from the label’s release of the original, Glitterbox now presents a special remix package that features Joe Claussell’s 1986 Reel To Reel Edit - a disco extravaganza of a mix - and Cratebug’s house-infused and funk-laden More Love Remix.

    3. C Archie Bell & The Drells - Let's Groove (Tom Moulton Remix)
    4. D Lou Rawls - You'll Never Find (Tom Moulton Remix)

    The legendary partnership of NYC's Disco godfather Tom Moulton and Philadelphia International Records has long been documented. A truly explosive collaboration that yielded endless classic tracks for dancers and deep listeners alike, Moulton seemed to be totally in tune with the labels output and the direction it should go in. Luckily we've been enjoying the fruits of this labour for the last 30+ years with a lot of these PIR classics becoming ingrained in the psyche of the modern day music fan as the building blocks of House music.

    The names alone fill one with awe, The O'Jays, Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, Archie Bell & The Drells and Lou Rawls. All of these artists were, and still are, huge stars. Turning in classic after classic, and with Moulton's supreme ear assisting, this special PIR reissue 12" see's some all-time classics from the aforementioned artists in their full, unabridged, unedited Disco glory. The selections on this EP are absolutely top-shelf, flawless in fact. One could argue that these are the 'definitive' versions of these anthems. Pure Disco gold essentials. Anyone with even a passing interest in Disco will most certainly need this record in their possession, the 2012 pressing of this EP changes hands for £100+ second hand, so a repress was desperately needed.

    These tracks are fully licensed and reissued in conjunction with Tom Moulton and PIR and all relevant rights holders. Remastered from original source materials to the highest spec and pressed onto top quality vinyl, courtesy of Above Board distribution for 2019.

    1. A Bill Brandon - We Fell In Love While Dancing
    2. B Lorraine Johnson - The More I Get, The More I Want

    Prelude Records is easily one of THE most influential Disco labels of all time. The label released classic upon classic and launched the careers of many now influential artists and producers and engineers. Names like Francois K, Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries and more were all intrinsic to the Prelude story. The music this label released throughout it's life has shaped modern day club culture and continues to do so....

    1977 saw the release of one of Prelude's most sought after, desired and rare offerings. A 12" promo that features 2 insanely deep cuts from the labels impressive repertoire. Bill Brandon & Lorraine Johnson's split DJ promo '‎We Fell In Love While Dancing / The More I Get, The More I Want' - 2 megaton Disco bombs that will have your dancefloor in a frenzy. This essential release has changed hands for hundreds of pounds on the used market and has never been legally reissued before, there are sub-standard boots around and they sound awful. This official reissue has the full unedited versions of the tracks and has been repressed from the master sources and with the full involvement of the licensors to provide 2019's clubs with a true Disco rarity, as it was way back in '77!

    8. D2 Fallout - The Morning After (Sunrise Mix)

    Fabio & Grooverider have been at the forefront of UK dance music for over 3 decades. This is the roots of their story told through music.

    The 2 London DJ's are part of the DNA of the global Jungle / D&B movement and they have remained relevant, cutting edge, authoritative and essential to this truly underground art-form since it's inception. RAGE could arguably be the ground zero of Jungle. The party was started at London's cavernous Heaven club by Fabio & Grooverider in 1988, at the height of Acid House fever that was making it's way up and down the motorways, slip-roads, fields and warehouses of the M25 and further beyond every weekend, troubling the nation, the police, your parents and the press as it went. RAGE was a different beast, it certainly channelled some of that Acid energy but pitted it against the new and exciting sounds emanating from Belgium, Amsterdam, Detroit, Sheffield, Essex and Hackney and in turn created a new style, a new sonic attitude and energy in the process. Rumbling bass-lines, narcotic synth rushes and roughly chopped and sped-up breakbeats all merged into a style that we now know as Jungle. Nothing like this had been heard before, this was a brand new style and it was coming out of London's West End and Fabio & Grooverider were the people firmly behind it.

    RAGE is approaching its 30th anniversary. Its sonic and cultural legacy is still being felt today, Fabio & Groove are still shutting down raves and festivals every weekend all over the world with their superior DJ sets and musical knowledge guided by their pioneering spirit. This musical selection you hold in your hands, the first of 4 parts, sees them delve into their prodigious memories and record boxes to select a true musical representation of the very beginning of one of the UK's most unique and influential musical movements of the last 50 years. Across 4 x 2 x 12"s compilations we are taken on the journey through the sounds of RAGE, accompanied with track by track notes from Fabio & Groove themselves. This is the sound of the underground, from the inside out.

    This is a masterclass in the old-school. The roots. There is no filler here, it's simply ALL killer. Lovingly selected and programmed by the masters - 'The Living Shock' & 'The Ladies Choice'. Produced in conjunction with Above Board distribution and Fabio & Grooverider. All tracks mastered from original sources and fully licensed. Mastering by Optimum, Bristol.

    Seminal NYC deep House sounds from the legendary Strictly Rhythm catalogue, this is some straight 1991 heat.

    'I Wanna Feel The Music' / 'Gotta Have You' are 2 stone cold jams. This is the sound that is often imitated, but never bettered, that true school deep House flavour. Sound Waves is a crew made up of Andrew Richardson and Gijo Rosario, who crafted 2 slamming 12"s for Strictly in the very early 90's. Both cuts ooze so much soul, and those unmistakable deep synth pads that wash over those tuff NYC drums with uplifting emotion. A true underground record that sounds like it could have easily dropped last week. This is a high quality, remastered from the OG audio files, 100% legit 2019 reissue of another essential deep House gem, truly flawless and it should be in every DJ's bag! Buy on sight.

    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.

    DJ Nature follows up 2018’s ‘Ultimate Delusion’ EP with another set of pure heaters for Futureboogie.

    The Bristol born DJ and producer, also known to many as Nature Boy, comes with an exemplary track record, but that’s to be expected from one of the scene’s early pioneers. Releases for Golf Channel Recordings, Jazzy Sport and Ruff Disco Records are considered true classics, and rightly so!

    Breezy MPC house jams of the highest quality, ‘Flutter’ manages to fuse David Lynch style pads and earthy vocals with a marching rhythm, whilst ‘A Moment’ gets cosmically charged with a spiralling modular lick over a chugging guitar hook and spacey chords.

    NB’s Mix of Siliconada goes straight for the jugular, with looping disco rhythms and off kilter jazz licks, whilst the Original Version lays heavy and disorientating synth work down for a killer techno injection.

    As always, DJ Nature delivers a unique and distinctive sound that is often imitated but never bettered!

    2. B. 10 Days (Osunlade ‘Yoruba Soul’ Remix)

    Bontan makes an eagerly anticipated return to Crosstown Rebels with 10 days, a scintillating two track release that features a stunning remix from Osunlade.

    10 Days begins things in an emotive fashion, as rustling hi hats pave the way for featured vocalist Bengle to state, “ten more days”. This echoes before a bleepy yet similarly driving kick wobbles along, as the sample plays out, to form an emotional, dance-ready cut. Osunlade’s Yoruba Soul remix is a similarly moving piece, as warm pads are coupled with a dubby kick, before the same poignant vocal calls upon us in a heartrending manner.

    UK native ​Bontan has produced a number of the scene’s standout tracks. A regular on the likes of Hot Creations, Circus Recordings and Crosstown Rebels, his releases ‘Call You Back’ and ‘The First Time’ furthered his worldwide reputation as a breaking act. Such an ear for the perfect dancefloor record has not relented, as he continues to push his melodic, acid driven sound in an ever-growing direction, one that traverses the many forms of house and techno alike. ​Osunlade ​is a musician and producer, an artist who has been releasing records for a decade now. Someone with many strings to his bow, he has produced eight albums and debuted on Innervisions in 2012 with a three-track remix package of his esteemed Envision vinyl release.

    2. B. Waves (Jamie Jones Re-edit)

    German duo Raumakustik are next up on Hot Creations with Animal / Waves, a stunning two track release that features a re-edit from label frontman Jamie Jones.

    Animal starts proceedings, as a bouncing reverberating kick gives way to a synth-filled build up. An echoing vocal sample states “acid feel”, before hitting once again with a choppy, swinging bassline. Next up, Jamie Jones delivers a re-edit of Waves, featuring tinny hi-hats, hollow pops and a bouncing arcade build up that is guaranteed to cause a stir on any dancefloor.

    Having released their Raider EP on sub-label Hot Trax and Dem A Pree on Emerald City, Raumakustik make their first appearance on Hot Creations. Respected producers in the house and techno scenes, they have also released on the likes of Suara, Toolroom and Microtonal Records. Jamie Jones is someone who needs little introduction. Founder of Hot Creations as well as the Paradise event series, there are few feats left for the Welshman to conquer. Countless esteemed releases coupled with a passion-lead vision have seen Jones become a true master of his craft.

    We had a little jam session in our studio with the 909 drums. The synth line was in the beginning just a background sound. But for the break was that the perfect sound for pushing this track higher. ”Animal” was born.

    ”Waves” is a funky tech house groover with some disco percussion vibes. And a raving up and down arpeggiator synth with a re-edit arrangement from Jamie Jones.

    1. A. Jacquot (Waters of Praslin)
    2. B. Sirens

    Poté returns to Benji B’s Deviation Music following the release of his acclaimed debut album 'Spiral, My Love' last year. 'Waters of Praslin' is the first in of a run of club-focused 12"s from the artist entitled the Versiclub series.

    St. Lucia born and London-raised, Poté (real name Sylvern Mathurin) has always been drawn to African diasporic futuristic beats from baile funk to kuduro and gqom. Before Benji stepped in to release his debut record Poté put out multiple EPs for Enchufada, the independent record label founded by his spiritual forbearers in Lisbon, Buraka Son Sistema.

    The Brazilian influence is definitely evident in opening track 'Jacquot (Waters of Praslin)', with its afro-samba rhythm laced with the metallic synth work of UK bass. Track 2, 'Sirens' feels like a future dance floor favourite that channels UK funky, dub step and of course the power of the siren in the dance.

    "Waters of Praslin is my homage to the people and spirit of my hometown, Praslin in St.Lucia. These are the waters which gave us life, stories, joy and memories” says Poté “these waters saw many of us grow and and eventually pass."

    DJ / Radio support from Benji B, Virgil Abloh, Bonobo, Laurent Garnier. Mr Beatnick, Batu, Parris, Toddla T, Molinaro and Samrai,

    5. B3. Mariposa Rising

    Venetian born Simone de Kunovich takes the Superconscious sound into refreshingly bizarre territory with his debut 12” Mondo Nuovo Vol. 1. A student of film and the arts, Simone digs deep into archives of the mondo and exploitation genres, sampling obscurities and piecing them together with vintage synthesisers and a modern ear, producing mind-melting psychedelia suitable for late-night hypnotica and introspective home-listening.

    From the manic resonance in “Strategia della Tensione” to the blissful atmospheres of “Mondo Segreto”, Mondo Nuovo Vol 1. is an intelligent collage of inspirations that blurs the lines between dance music and cinematic artefacts. A unique experience which sits comfortably amongst the Superconscious back catalogue.

    3. B2. When The Lights Are Out (Late Night Mix)

    Just in time for summer, and another huge season of gigs across the world,
    Maceo Plex returns to his own Ellum Audio with a sure to be huge new single.
    This is Maceo’s first outing since his excellent Mutant Robotics release in 2018,
    but in the months since he has continued to be a leading light in the global
    house and techno scene. A spellbinding performer who takes the crowd into
    another dimension, the Spanish based American is just as adventurous in the
    studio and once again casts another magical spell with this new EP.

    ‘When The Lights Are Out’ is a ready-made anthem that serves up a seven-
    minute techno trip of the highest order. It is deep and masterfully melodic, of

    course, with slick drums setting an inviting mid-tempo pace and the
    melancholic chords adding lasting emotion to the groove. A heartfelt female
    vocal is the centrepiece that will get hands in the air this summer and ensure
    this record stays firmly lodges in record boxes worldwide.

    Next to an instrumental, there is a Late Night Mix that is more driving and
    electrifying, with glossy synths shining bright in the expansive skies above the
    drums.

    This is the sound of a melodic techno master at work and is another landmark
    release for both artist and label.

    is / was is incredibly proud to introduce the enigmatic, insanely gifted, man-of-many-vibes himself, Teakup. Hailing from Ohio, our man is yet another in a long lineage of shut-in freak-beat enthusiasts from the humble state. With a style referencing the melodic funk and swing of Titonton Duvante and the broken, advanced-beat wizardry of Archetype, Teakup steps into this proud heritage with a 4 tracker of various vibes sure to sate even the most discerning of dweebs. “Lose My Mind” is of the swung and jacking nü haus variety popularized by the Will & Ink lads. “Shimmer” soothes with soft pads and throbbing bass while simultaneously spanking you upside the head with cracking snares and corrosive claps. “Darkcore 2020” indulges in sci-fi breakbeat antics, earning the much sought-after status of “banger”. Lastly, “I Don’t Fkn Kno” slinks along in the timeless tradition of low-slung n’ swung house groovers. Welcome to the sound of Teakup.

    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.

    2. A2. Sväva
    3. B1. Creation Discoteque

    Following Jaguar Mirror [c.2016] and Night School Of Universal Wisdom [c.2017], psychonaut Thunder Tillman and his personal shaman Pontus deliver another sublime EP, completing an illustrious trilogy with arguably their most expansive work to date, Condor Sunflower. The title track is emotionally overwhelming, a drum procession that carries a righteous battle hymn to epic heights, accumulating primitive instrumentation, ceremonial chants, emotive chord changes and Beach Boy harmonies before exiting on a tear-jerking coda. The intermediary track Sväva is just as vulnerable, a modestly-arranged and leisurely-paced lullaby, where angels coalesce with a droning organ and eventually unfurl into the warm glow of rapture. Before we hit rock bottom, Thunder and Pony halt the elevator, abandoning any sense of melancholy and climbing to new heights with Creation Discoteque, an 11-minute Prog beast that chronicles a myriad of their musical adventures. This retrospective of altered states does seem designed to drop the curtain on their meticulously-crafted narrative, but not without foreshadowing their future and throwing in an air-shaking rave-up that sprints toward the finish line. What we find enviable, spanning 3 glorious Thunder Tillman EPs and short films, is the duo’s creative simpatico, something that many artists in collaboration never truly behold. It’s not their joint musical intuition, their intrinsic understanding of one another’s craft, or even the power of their improvisational tether, but their spiritual alliance that nobody can touch. It’s as if they share a tandem bicycle ride on the highest plane of consciousness to lounge in the members-only spa where they telepathically discuss secrets of high-grade musical alchemy

    * Ltd Ed. of 1500
    * Vinyl and digital release date: 31/05/2019

    Released by Lonely Table, Anja Ngozi and The Vinyl Factory, with support from the Arts Council England, the album spans genres and eras, touching on jazz, experimental electronic, post-punk, dub and ambient influences, painting a diverse picture of the UK’s expanding underground sound.

    Drawing on Barbican’s major Basquiat retrospective in 2017, the project also explores themes around identity, representation and social inequality.

    As such Untitled also encompasses a youth project with Ruff Sqwad Foundation, in which seven BME young people aged 12-18 were given the opportunity to visit the Tate Modern and create music in response to what they saw.

    As LayFullstop says: “We’re celebrating a legend who fought with his brushes and spoke with his work. The need for his work is still as current as ever. The issues we’re attacking are still as current as ever. So it’s only logical that Basquiat is and will continue to be as current as ever.”

    Techno, Disco, Italo, Electronics, House, Library, Cosmic and Ambient frequencies - These are the bedrocks of the Midnight Drive ethos and sound. A label shining a light on overlooked or unheralded creations and respectfully reissuing them for the contemporary audience. A label that respects and understands the connection between these disparate and sometimes forgotten forms of musical expression and celebrates them. Midnight Drive are extremely proud to reintroduce the world to the sublime after-hours, cult downtempo sounds of Belgian duo Pieter Kuyl and Jan Van Den Bergh aka Mappa Mundi.

    Mappa Mundi's sole release 'Musaics' was released on Belgium's legendary USA Import label in 1990, riding on the wave of early trance and ambient house sounds and exploring the same sonic terrain and worlds as The Orb, The KLF, Sun Electric and other like minded outfits. A wonderful swirling collage or mosaic of breakbeats, samples and new-age synth stylings, 'Musaics' is indeed a real trip. A spontaneous late night studio concoction borne of endless takes and experimentation between Kuyl and Van Den Bergh who both display a deep knowledge and a shared love of different sounds from around the world. The end result is a meditative, sprawling journey that touches on many different styles from languid widescreen techno to frantic drum machine driven machine-funk, all while retaining a feeling of post-rave atmospherics and psychedelia. This is a very special record indeed, and is somewhat of a lost gem from a very fertile and interesting period in sample based music. Undoubtedly the perfect soundtrack to numerous late nights and early mornings to come, remastered and spread across 2 discs for maximum sonic playback.

    1. A Dance - Onionz Down The Block Remix
    2. B Dance - Kerri Chandler Centro Fly Mix

    OK. This is an anthem. You know 'Dance' already, right? HUGE Pal Joey jam from way back in 1990? The one that flips Carl Bean's 'I Was Born This Way' into the stratosphere? Yeah, that's it! Except this is that track reimagined by 2 killer producers, flipped and edited into the cosmos by the New Jersey legend Kerri Chandler and the West Coast's Onionz, probably the only producers who could touch such a stone cold classic and actually bring something to the table! Originally out in 2002 these 2 edits / mixes are total weapons, you need this 12 in your bag. Everything is touched, tweaked and blended in just the right way and full respect is given to the mixes. This isn't no fly by night re-edit thing, this is heavyweight's bringing us some heat and their interpretation of a track that was obviously a huge deal for them on a personal level. Do not snooze on this, masterfully repressed, with the full consent of everyone involved and remastered on a solid 12 for you all. Tip!
