    1. A. Sfire feat Marcella - Sfire1
    2. B. Sfire - Sfire1

    Marcella:
    I don't really remember - I only thought that I sounded like a 8 years old kid a bit out of tune with italian accent.

    Jeffrey Sfire:
    Sfire 1 was the incarnation of Sfire. I met Sophie at a Motherland show in 2008 (Sophie and Marcella's berlin based band). I suggested she make a dance version of a song they played and she asked me to come to the studio to help produce it. She had heard me djing many times and was a fan. We became good friends and made a few more tracks along the years. we hope to make more soon.
    As for me I've been a dj since i was 16. Grew up in Detroit. Fell in love with underground 80's music (house italo freestyle) and have been djing regularly since.

    10. B5 Bay City

    The very first legitimate reissue of this stellar 1977 Disco set on the legendary NYC Prelude label.
    'Disconnection' is a rare beast, a studio group effort headed up by Robert Lee Holmes Jr., a man who had worked on numerous Soul, Funk & even Jazz titles in his native Nashville and beyond. A true underrated stalwart of Southern R&B, Holmes assembled a still mystery cast of musicians to craft this strange one-off LP. Who were the players? Where were they from? The whole release comes off as an almost 'Library' style LP with tracks short, and to the point. There is not a second or drop of Funk that is wasted throughout, proving that a little can go a long way! The music contained within is masterfully produced and arranged, it's obvious that whoever was drafted in by Holmes to realise his vision was the creme of the crop in terms of musicianship. This be the sound of the dancefloor, or the food for the starving sampler right here. Brilliant.

    The mystery around this fantastic LP is retained, even now in 2019 where this record is much sought after by collectors and diggers across the world. It's understandable why, this one has it all on paper, but most importantly it has the Funk in spades! Often bootlegged, to very low standards, here is your chance to own a truly unique record - fully legit! An Above Board distribution / Prelude Records collaboration. The first of many, keep them peeled!

    4. B2. Oliver Dollar - Spinal Tap
    5. B3. Oliver Dollar feat. Gene Farris - Sampling

    Following the stunning digital outing, Oliver Dollar’s ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ now has its long-awaited vinyl release, spread across two EPs. This adventurous artistic statement from one of house music’s most vital names shows off a wider breadth and depth of sound than ever before in his Classic Music Company debut.

    Using the longer format as a way of expressing different styles, from blues to disco, house to downtempo, the album was in the works for six years. Oliver linked with some of house music’s most essential names, from Ben Westbeech to Matthew K, Daniel Steinberg to Nils Ohrmann via Sqim. The album has now been split over two vinyl EPs, with Part 2 formed of a five-track selection that commits some of the highlights of the album to wax.

    Opening the A-side is the gospel grooves abound ‘John’s Church’ followed by the bouncing, funk-laden ‘Not Enough’. On the flip is ‘On & On’ where raw house is complimented by Ben Westbeech’s gravelly vocals. This is followed by a special vinyl edit of the disco tinged beatdown ‘Spinal Tap’ and the laid-back ‘Sampling’ which features Chicago legend Gene Farris. ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ is one of the most complete house albums you could wish to hear, and this vinyl edition showcases the genre defying abilities of Oliver Dollar’s production.

    1. A1. Feels Like Whatever ft Amp Fiddler
    2. B1. No More Tears
    3. B2. Lay Down (Disco Mix)

    Ahead of his second artist album on his own Millionhands label in July, Tee Mango teases with a fantastic first EP taken from it. The album finds the UK artist stretch himself with a dazzling array of soul drenched, fully fledged songs featuring his own singing and that of Detroit legend (and Moodymann collaborator) Amp Fiddler.

    The sound, very much influenced by early Prince and even a little Bon Iver, combines effortlessly with that loose sampled MPC-house feel that you would associate with a Tee Mango production. It also comes with a seal of approval from Radio 6 Music legend Gilles Peterson and after EPs on the likes of Aus, Clone and Local Talk in recent years.

    Opening up the EP, Amp Fiddler features on ‘Feels Like Whatever’. Dancing Rhodes keys, ooze jazz charm and float atop a simple house beat, while the Detroit legend’s emotive raw soulful vocal directs proceedings.
    The heart breaking ‘No More Tears’ is an introspective sad soul song that shows another side to Mango’s skills. Tender chords, downbeat drums and vocal hums and coos all melt your very being. Last of all comes the dazzling ‘Lay Down (Disco Mix)’ with its slapped funk bassline, finger clicks and squelch synth work all topped off by an effortless
    falsetto. This is a fantastic introduction to the full length to come.

    1. A1. Shame
    2. B1. Fixation

    The definitive Cuttin Headz label welcomes global house icon Jonny White aka Art Department for a new EP that boasts two vital house cuts.

    Art Department is one of the most recognisable names in the underground scene. The solo project of No.19 Music label boss and Canadian Jonny White has graced high profile magazine front covers, headlined all the key festivals and events, and turned out some of house and techno’s most essential cuts in the last few years. These two new missiles show yet another sound and style to White’s arsenal, and are destined to make a huge impact in the club.

    First out of the blocks is the rock solid ‘Shame’ with razor sharp hi hats and tough, punchy drums. The excellent physicality of the groove is off set by a super soulful vocal sample up top, and as the track barrels along smart filters and a hypnotic lead are sure to get the whole club under a spell. Then comes the superb ‘Fixation’, a totally different but equally original proposition that is built on restless drum programming and twitchy synths. It’s a freaky late night cut that brings muscular grooves and absorbing bass to the floor for maximum destruction.

    This is a powerful new EP from Cuttin’ Headz and Art Department, two giants in the scene.

    3. B2. Tabebula (Seb Zito Remix)

    Infuse welcomes back Croatian talent Mariano Mateljan to the imprint to close out June, backed by a remix from FUSE resident Seb Zito.

    Founder of the vinyl only imprint u.dig, releasing material to date from himself and the likes of Alexis Cabrera and Ben Balance & Fabe aka Ho Do Ri, and with recent releases on Moss Co. and Vekton, Croatian DJ and producer Mariano Mateljan has grown to become one of the scenes most promising rising talents, reflected with key bookings from fabric (London) to Club der Visionaere (Berlin) and beyond. Having released on Infuse back in 2013 with his track ‘Pigeon Boxer’ featuring on the label’s third ever V/A release, plus appearances for both FUSE and Infuse at events in London, here we see an impressive return from Mateljan as he delivers his first EP on the label entitled ‘Tabebula’, whilst FUSE resident and Infuse A&R Seb Zito turns in a classy remix of the title track.

    Title cut ‘Tabebula’ opens the EP as slick percussion shots go to work amongst a deep, snaking bass groove, whilst second original ‘Rose Amongst Thorns’ opens the B-side in equally as impressive fashion, opting for a more paired back effort that combines floating airy chords, slinking drums and refined melodies. Last up, Seb Zito’s interpretation of the lead track sees the London favourite opt for a driving acid-tinged bassline, crisp claps and skipping hats throughout to round out proceedings.

    4. B2. Rite De Passage

    Swedish DJ Adeline lands on Crosstown Rebels with You*re Sick, a diverse four track release that features a stunning remix from Rex Club regular D’Julz.

    The EP opens with the title track You*re Sick. Pronounced kicks merge with subtle pads, as an enchanting vocal sample whispers along. Bubble-like pops are brought in alongside intermittent hi-hats, creating a real dance-floor ready record. The D’Julz dub comes next. Staying true to the original, the addition of an electro-like breakdown builds energy, before that addictively-good kick is brought back in. Dust To Bone is a fast-paced minimal thumper, that takes no prisoners as it moves along with a wholesome bassline and softly driving percussion, before Rite De Passage rounds off the EP with powerful pads and warm keys.

    Brought up in the rolling Swedish countryside, Adeline is a DJ, producer and vocalist whose talents reach far further than the DJ booth. Having founded electronic music duo Housewives with La Fleur in 2006, Adeline has gone on to release standout productions on the likes of Culprit and Kindisch Records. D’Julz is an artist whose presence in the scene has been felt for decades. For twenty two years, the French native has been running the now legendary “Bass Culture” night at Rex Club, and has hosted some of the scenes most respected DJs in recent times, including Seth Troxler, Sonja Moonear and Nicolas Lutz.

    1. A1. Shake

    3. B1. M-54
    4. B2. Shinkansen

    Ten years and twice as many records have come out since Public Release shared its inaugural 12-inch with the world, and it feels fitting to mark the occasion of its twentieth with new work by a steady partner in crime, Mark E. The English Midlander, known as a peddler of classic house laced with the unexpected—sprinklings of frisky Italo and wiggly disco here, splatterings of taut techno and woozy dub there —made his P.R. debut with 2016’s steamy industrial chugger, Sky Horn, and has also been a frequent remixer for the Northern Californian label.

    The 12-inch starts on a bone-chilling note with the titular track, a spartan warm-up that’s a creeping bass on the low end, wispy pads in the mids, and a scratchy looped vox sample on top designed to haunt your dreams. A freaky intro that unnerves as it allures. On the move now, Mark burrows deeper into a hypnotic groove with “Shelter,” a midtempo cyborg cut, half round, warm, organic percussion, half cold-tothe-touch synth chord sustains. The energy and urgency feels like new territory, but the execution is signature Mark E.

    On the reverse is a pair of more melodious tunes, the shuffling cyberpunk groove that is “M-54,” then the prickly “Shinkansen,” which has a sputtered and bleary-eyed thrust to make feet jitter and hips shake.

    A twist on the man's disciplined studio workmanship that we've come to know—arrow-straight arrangements, celery-crisp drums—that’s spiced with a few pinches of psychedelic, inside-out wickedness, devilishness to keep you wired, buzzing.

    Part Two is all about Joaquin’s original compositions. The versions that are included on this twelve inch have been extended for DJS to play. The 12Inch also features a variety of different genres of Dance and Head Music, such as the Cosmic Jazz Dance composition of “Come and Fly with Me” by the Brooklyn Soul and Heat Band, to the Avant Guarded influenced “Mundo De Agua” by or Other Souls & Things, and
    but not least “Emarofo Tech” which is a dope Cosmic House-Jam just to mention a few.

    3. Snippet 2

    We are unfortunately living through a period that could possibly be the most desperate, as well as confusing time in human history. You would think that with the great leaps that have been taken with advances in technology-that we would at the very least become closer as a people. However, sadly this has shown not to be the case. What has become obvious, however, is that so-called progress has taken a back seat to trickery, chaos, wickedness, selfishness and ultimately separatism.

    We have become desensitized to the point that we now see the hope we thought would be waiting for us at the end of the brightly lit tunnel is quickly being gobbled up by deceit, hate and darkness.

    Fortunately, however, there are devotees who like myself have always placed their beliefs in the transcendent powers of music. With nothing out here seeming to be what it’s supposed to be, it is clear that music has not only remained consistent with its alignment with love and unity, but it is also viewed to be the most precious gift bestowed on to humankind. An orchestration from the creator of the infinite galaxy and all life-forms of which reside throughout, a sincere belief in his or hers rhythm and sound can assist in realigning the planet to its proper position of balance thus light and darkness, love and devotion, compassion and love for one another could prevail.
    No less is the power of gospel music.

    Different from those who came before, this edition goes beyond and ventures into a
    broader range of gods music- this because, all music is gods music... We hope that you will enjoy – Give yourself to the Master...

    Thank You for listening

    4. B2. Perfect Strangers

    We could wax lyrical for days about the music of Ewan Jansen but we’ll leave that for the blog sites and Reddit message boards whose pages his name regularly graces. The Australian producer responsible for seminal 90’s label Red Ember could be seen as an unwitting progenitor of the now well established and flourishing Australian House music scene and his vinyl releases have become highly sought after and frequently exchange hands for triple figures. Appearances on other legendary labels such as Mike Grant’s Moods & Grooves (who released Ewan’s Blueline Summer LP in 2005) and Chez Damier’s Inner Balance. In 2016 Ewan brought Red Ember out of hiatus releasing some solo material that sounded fresher than ever, continuing to push his raw yet musical, authentic house sound. Cut to the start of this year and Jimpster is flicking through Instagram when he stumbles upon a short clip of some work in progress on Ewan’s
    profile. Transfixed by the vibe, he contacts Ewan to offer a release on Freerange and we’re now super-proud to present you with the Perfect Strangers EP. Four original tracks showcase Ewan’s impeccable attention to detail in the grooves, sounds and production. With the uptempo, afro-tinged synth jam of Take U Away and the more crunchy, minimal bounce of Logarithm, we find Ewan in pure dance floor mode on the A side. Flipping over we’re treated to Chika Kozo, a rolling groove with an emotive vibe, perfect for a late-night drive through the urban metropolis. Closing out
    the EP things get more intimate and introspective on title track Perfect Strangers. Layers of warm pads build upon a punchy house groove whilst a filtered Moog bassline keeps the momentum and brings the low-end energy to the track. Overall Ewan’s sound melds together many sonic worlds, bringing to mind early Morgan Geist, elements of Warren ‘Hanna’ Harris, Black Dog, ART and early 90’s IDM, all put together with love and skill by a master of his trade.

    The project Adriatique is approaching its 10th anniversary, but to just call it a project would be a fierce understatement. Adriatique is friendship; creativity; compromise; being together for days on end; experiencing things together for the first time; birth; rebirth; joy and pain; but above all, Adriatique is music.

    So, in order to commemorate these past 10 years, Adriatique bring you “X”.

    Not only does this record celebrate 10 years of Adriatique; It is simultaneously catalogue number 10 on their very own “Siamese” imprint, coincidentally occurring a decade after their consortium. Fate is a peculiar fellow, but he is smiling.

    This release comes on limited purble marbled vinyl!

    1. A1. Lon Lon Night Vision
    2. A2. Night Stinger
    3. B. Lon Lon Night Vision (LH Remix)

    Wilted Woman is a producer whose left-field approach to electronic music emerges from an experimentally minded and refreshingly unapologetic attitude, forged on the punk and DIY scenes of the East Coast of the United States, and more recently, Berlin. Across her debut release for Phantasy, she contributes two unpredictable and outlandish cuts of hyper-modern club culture, complimented by a remix from fellow outsider alchemist, Laurel Halo.

    ‘Lon Lon Night Vision’ is a creeping, industrial interpretation of acid sounds, peeling away layers of tension to reveal a melody straight from the cold heart of a John Carpenter soundtrack, resolving in uniquely dystopian funk.

    ‘No Stinger’ immediately unleashes a burrowing, cybernetic ear-worm of a hook, biochemically blossoming into a sublime, undulating landscape of contemporary trance, rich in ideas and sonic euphoria.

    Finally, Laurel Halo turns the screws on the original mix of Lon Lon Night Vision, extracting an almost impossibly taut slice of techno, building raw tension towards a blistering rush of electro psychedelia.

    Long time innovator Mathias Kaden debuts on Rekids with two rolling cuts with remixes by leading Japanese artist Hiroshi Watanabe and Delsin Records regular Vril.

    With two decades of experience, Mathias Kaden is without a doubt one of house music’s most consistent artists. Known for his versatile approach to music making, Kaden has released on labels like Ovum and Pets, not to mention Mule Musiq and Ornaments under his Japanese inspired side project Mathimidori. Not only that, Kaden has proven his adaptability with remixes of many top tier artists like DJ Koze, Wareika and Jesse Rose. He now joins Rekids to further establish his unwavering reputation.

    ‘Liberate Drums’ is already highly sought after having generated a lot of hype on a Honey Dijon podcast earlier this year and rightly so - Kaden layers claps with a looped leading groove and warped vocals. Vril then distorts the original, bringing filtered effects and crunchy percussion, while Hiroshi Watanabe’s musical rendition transforms the track with epic strings that work amongst elongated vocals giving the track a mystical quality. Finishing on a darker note, ‘Helicopter’ utilises warping waves which oscillate atop a bed of hammering percussion, infused with a groove that is destined to get you moving.

    Bedroom Tapes is comprised solely of lost material from a recently discovered box of cassettes that emerged in the process of a house move. These tracks capture some of Paul Woolford’s most wide-eyed and naïve creative impulses at a tender age.

    Seemingly lost forever, some were part of sessions that led to him being signed to now-defunct UK techno imprint Blue Basique. This is the first chapter in this archive and an intimate portrait of the artist at a key stage of his creative development.

    The tracks have been carefully mastered with a loving hand by Matt Colton who has been meticulous to retain their idiosyncrasies.

Working back and forth between the two mediums, the artist builds up a conversation that looks at depth, texture and dynamism in both spaces.

    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.

    Dope Demand is a brand new hip-hop reissue label bringing you the cream of underground and golden era rap on 7", 12" & beyond! All releases are fully licensed, remastered and legit. This is not afly by night operation, Dope Demand is helmed by true heads, fans who grew up on this music and have the utmost respect for the art-form. These are NOT bootlegs, we repeat - NOT BOOTLEGS! We've done a lot of hard work, and there are a lot of exciting classics and rarities to come from the DD crew. Snoozing is not advised!

    To begin proceedings we take it back to '87. We enter the court of a King Asiatic (Nobody's Equal) for some of that 'genuine like Gucci' flavour. That's right - Big Daddy Kane's all-time, game changing, stripped back, battle rap classic 'Set It Off' gets the reissue treatment. This one is slays, it's easily up there with the greatest rap records of all time. We dare you to disagree. Nobody can touch this dream-team pairing of Kane & Marley Marl, this one is FIRE. Oh, if that wasn't enough, we threw the ultra hard to get instrumental on the flip. Happy? We are!

    As mentioned before, these super limited 7's are fully licensed and all audio is sourced from the license holders and is top shelf quality. On top of that we got some fresh original artwork from the Atelier Superplus design house. All in all, a tight release right here that will 'cold rock a party 'til the A.M.'. These will not stick around for long! Until next time...

    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. Artwork and design by Atelier Superplus. 2019

    1. A. Sacred Cycles (Adam Beyer / Bart Skils / Layton Giordani Renaissance Remix)
    2. B. Sacred Cycles (Original Mix)

    Celebrated record label and events brand Renaissance announce the next release in their acclaimed The ReMix Collection series – a stunning reworking of Pete Lazonby’s 1994 classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ from one of the biggest names in techno - Drumcode boss Adam Beyer, who teams up with fellow Drumcode alumnae, Bart Skils and Layton Giordani.

    The spectacular and atmospheric remix is set to be a huge track this summer. The three Drumcode titans give Pete Lazonby’s sumptuous trance and progressive house classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ a tougher, harder edge that is perfect for peak-time dance-floors. The trio cleverly intertwine the swooping synths and spoken word sample from Genesis’ ‘The Fountain Of Salmacis’ in Pete Lazonby’s original ‘Sacred Cycles’ and inject a heart-pumping bassline and bring in a powerful drop to give it the signature Drumcode sound.

    On the remix, Adam Beyer, Bart Skils and Layton Giordani said: “Our main goal was to keep the rolling, hypnotising flow of the track and transform it into a contemporary piece of music that remains timeless like the original. The end result is a strong piece of melodic music that leans on the
    progressive ‘90s tip, without losing the power to move the dancefloor. Renaissance boss Geoff Oakes said: “The ReMix Collection has been a real labour of love. Selecting the right track and the right remixer is the biggest part of the challenge and as with the previous releases in the series we landed the perfect combination. It’s always difficult to remix such an iconic classic but the guys have really delivered. Amazing update on a track that’s very close to my heart!"

    The ReMix Collection celebrates Renaissance’s proud heritage which has seen the brand at the forefront of electronic music since its inception in 1992. The concept behind the collection is to put a fresh and exciting take on seminal tracks that are closely connected with Renaissance’s heritage.
    Previous releases in The ReMix Collection saw Solomun remix ‘The Age of Love’ (2017), Tale of Us remix Energy 52’s ‘Café Del Mar’ (2018), and Maceo Plex remix Remake’s ‘Blade Runner’ (2018).
