    4. B2. Illuminated
    5. B3. Mornings

    As we descend into winter and the end of 2019, an EP that, like the shorter, overcast days, is chilly and stark, yet accented with rays of sun that crack through the clouds, glints of starlight, full-moon rises.

    These five tracks—six for the digital version—come from Eluize, a Berlin-based Australian gifted at simmering minimal yet acerbic house potions over low heat, patiently coaxing them to a slow boil. Mischievous, creeping concoctions that approach and build sneakily, as layer upon layer is looped, expanded, condensed, dropped out, and slid back in. Each is a beautifully musical piece, too, with as much evolving melody as hypnotizing groove.

    An LPH soundtrack for nights that stretch on forever, lit only by blinking lights that break apart seas of heavy fog and slice between silhouetted bodies.

    Here is part two of Etienne Jaumet’s dubs from his latest new album, '8 regard obliques'.

    Following on from part one with DJ Sotofett and I:Cube, DJ Athome (from the Belgian 'Front de Cadeaux') turns the jazz classic, 'Caravan' into a slow 90's breakbeat oddball whilst Jaumet himself revisits his own 'Ma révélation mystique' in a more Reggae fashion.

    2. B1. Not Seeing Is A Flower
    3. B2. Boketto

    Lone continues to thrive on his newly established label, Ancient Astronauts, with its second physical release of the year, the ‘Not Seeing Is a Flower’.

    Steering towards a new studio album from the Nottingham-based producer, the three-track EP takes its name from a Japanese idiom (見ぬが花), which suggests that reality cannot compete with imagination. Lapping at varied shades of the psyche, ‘Glyphic’ kicks things off with a heavyweight tribal techno cut inspired by Cutler’s experiences at Bass Coast festival this summer, fusing 303 acid with sweltering piano lines and otherworldly vocals for a transcendental dancefloor experience. The senses are heightened with title-track ‘Not Seeing Is A Flower’, which reaches beyond reality with slowly spoken samples effortlessly melting into a lush ambient techno backdrop reminiscent of early work from The Future Sound Of London, Orbital, and The Black Dog. Finally, ‘Boketto’ sees Lone embrace the same tone of downtempo trip-hop detailed on his albums ‘Lemurian’ and ‘Reality Testing’ with rolling percussion and meditative chimes drawing close on some of the producer’s most lavish work to date.

    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. Tell me
    2. B. The Force

    Founded in 1990, Art of Dance has always been described by it’s founder, Kenny Larkin, as a “phantom label.”

    “When I first started Art of Dance, I wanted to obviously release my own stuff, but I quickly learned I didn’t have the time or brain cells to run a label. So I instead licensed my music from my label to other labels. It existed, but it didn’t, in that sense, which is the reason I call it a “phantom label.” Given my low output of music projects, over the years, and my new found desire to put out quality tracks, I decided to relaunch the label, and use it as an outlet for my brother and I to build the Art of Dance brand, and most importantly, release great music!”

    For his debut release, Kelvin presents what would be described not as “tech house”, but instead a blend between house and techno. Never straying far from his roots from Detroit, the title track of the single, Tell Me, samples “house diva” Loletta Holloway’s “Sweet Sensation.”

    With the interplay between the techno inspired percussion style bassline, and Loletta’s perfectly placed soulful wails, Kelvin creates a beautifully powerful dance floor burner.

    “The Force” is all Detroit. Kelvin gives a gentle nod to the past with this slow burner featuring classic 90’s style rolling snares, funky baseline, and horn stabs. This playful track is perfect for buildup for techno or house sets.

    Newman returns home with four tasty dance floor grooves. There's a certain latin vibe to half of the EP. You just can't keep your hips from swaying the way they do. Eastern vibes also return to the EP with "Kiss Of The Seraph“ breaking down to ethnic wails. His sound continues to evolve while maintaining it's own recognisable identity.
    Newman is here to stay and his grooves light up the dance floor every time.

    A-Future presents a fierce electro-charged production debut for EON Records

    After a solid summer of gigs at IICON Glastonbury, Inner City Electronic Leeds, Gottwood and Boiler Room, A-Future now shares a progression for his DJ project which has been impressing crowds across the UK with its range of left field beats and punchy up-tempo tracks.

    Deploying tricks learned from his weighty record collection, the Birmingham based producer works in hardcore breakbeat flares, deep electro basslines and headsy IDM synths into original track No Era for what is a high-grade first showing.

    Censor records head and long time friend Alex Jann and Berlin’s mysterious electronica producer Secret Universe provide a remix each. Jann comes in deep with a gritty bass line that drives his version with a solid flow primed for 140bpm dance floors. Secret Universe then sets etherial moments beside to belting syncopated jungle beat programming for a headsy and heavy take on No Era.

    This is the second release on A-Future’s EON Records label which launched in March 2019 with Sepehr’s Cybernetic EP featuring Stratowerx and A-Future remixes.

    British-Japanese Producer/DJ Maya Jane Coles has amassed an astonishing level of international success and uncompromising studio credentials maintaining a uniquely focused approach; writing, producing, engineering, arranging and mixing every element of her output mastering genres from techno and house through to hip-hop, dubstep, folk, pop and beyond.

    Following on from Maya’s award winning 2015 eponymous debut LP as Nocturnal Sunshine and unlocking a true representation of her musical identity, today Maya announces the forthcoming album ‘Full Circle’ out November 1 st on her own imprint I/AM/ME.

    The new album from Nocturnal Sunshine is another exciting glimpse into an artist internationally renowned for her unique and skillful creative vision. The drop of an unannounced single ‘Foundation’ at the end of 2018 sent out the first signal; something was building. The acclaimed ‘U&ME’ EP followed, the momentum of new music while Maya toured the world merely hinted at what was in store from the experienced studio producer.

    Introduced here with debut single “Pull Up” Feat. Gangsta Boo & Young M.A., Maya Jane Coles’ assured, and bold production teems with confidence; continuing her line of grungy breakbeats and uncovering new depths in hip-hop and trap-esque realms.

    Across ‘Full Circle’ LP, Maya seamlessly navigates through ranging tempos and moods, all instilled with a strong sense of freneticism all unified within an unmistakable Nocturnal Sunshine sonic sensibility.

    Evident to the width of her talents with her own collaborations with Tricky, Nadine Shah, Kim Ann Foxman and Miss Kittin et al; Maya has previously lent her production skills to other acts; producing for others from Chelou to Little Boots as well as remixing the electronic undergrounds finest; Bonobo, Bookashade and Tiga; to leftfield acts like The XX, Massive Attack and Little Dragon through to pop’s most credible; Dua Lipa, Sia, Sam Smith, Florence & The Machine, and even the legendary Ella Fitzgerald alongside a massive underground dominating Nocturnal Sunshine bootleg remix of Lizzo’s “Tempo” ft. Missy Elliot.

    More so, Maya’s breakthrough track “What They Say” track was slowed and looped to form the backing track for Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter”. The track also featuring Lil Wayne and Drake would receive a Grammy, BET & Soult Train Nominations and ranked 66 for the best-selling tracks of 2015 by Billboard, with artists such as T.I., Tyga and Ludacris releasing cover versions. The track has now sold over a million copies around the world. Maya’s beat was then latter sampled again on “Swish Swish” Katy Perry’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj.

    Previously released Nocturnal Sunshine singles ‘U&ME’ and ‘Foundation’ feature on the new album alongside new solo material ‘Tied Up’, ’To The Ground’; bumpin’ cuts, un-earthly vocals and gritty bass a-plenty. Maya invites a collective of close friends and peers to collaborate across the project; each artist is encapsulated in the fresh sound-wall that is upon first listen unquestionably Nocturnal Sunshine…reflective in class and focused in statement.

    Opening with a cinematic and acutely pensive feel, ‘Wildfire’ features Berlin via Buenos Aires rave punk, Catnapp. A downtempo affair, the nature of Catnapp impacts with attitude over Jungle-esque breaks. Calling upon similar rave influences Queer Alt Queen, Peaches on ‘Possessed’ before the haunting and enigmatic vocals of singer-song writer Chelou takes hold on closing track ‘Something About Drama’

    Elsewhere, the world of Nocturnal Sunshine unfolds in differing forms, introducing the wraithlike yet delicate vocals of Ry X on the experimental ‘Gravity’ and the soulful leaning chords of Thomas Knights on ‘Closed Eyes’. Unearthing hip-hop insights throughout, skit-style interludes ‘I’m Ready’ and ‘Lessons Of Life’ provide intelligently crafted periods of relief from the gripping intensity and breadth of the project that her huge fanbase continue to crave.

    Whilst the presence of legendary Three 6 Mafia’s Gangsta Boo on ‘Ridin’ Solo’ and ‘Pull Up’ ft Young M.A. anchors the urban roots of Maya as a producer married with the dark depths of CHA$EY JONES engulf on ‘Dash’; a distinctively murky dubbed out grime cut.

    As the story of Nocturnal Sunshine continues to unfold, her ‘Full Circle’ LP showcases the form and talent of an incredible producer on limitless musical adventure of self-identity.

    2. EE. Part 1
    3. EEE. Part 2

    This 3 track EP comes out from Limited E's vault called Retro Vol 2. Each of these tracks represents the early emergence of Jungle musik from the early 90s.

    E.Lets Go - This track made in 1992 by Potential Badboy was groundbreaking as it had soul elements n soulful house vocal which was unheard of back then.

    Rooted in the São Paulo contemporary art scene, Laima Leyton’s credentials in the world of music are firmly established as one-half of Mixhell alongside her husband Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy) and for her work with Soulwax. Now the producer, musician, activist, artist, mother and teacher unites her multifaceted talents with her ambitious double-vinyl debut album ‘Home’. It will be pressed and distributed by The Vinyl Factory and released by Deewee on November 8th.

    Featuring two records that are designed to be played simultaneously: Laima’s vocal and synth tracks on the ‘TONAL’ disc alongside Iggor’s beats on the ‘RHYTHMICAL’ record. Syncing two records offers an unconventional way to experience the music. Rather than passively hearing the music, the listener’s need to ritualistically sync both records makes for an immersive experience.

    There are two key elements that make ‘Home’ such a distinctive project. Thematically it explores how the two core contrasts that inform Laima’s life can coexist. On one hand it’s about domesticity – her love for her family and her frustration with domestic routine. Yet on the other, it’s about her creativity – her desire to express herself artistically while still tending to her role as a mother and a housewife.

    “It’s almost like a family photo album in another format,” says Laima. “I needed to find the balance in this dichotomy, to feel good with myself in both roles, and be aware of things that really mattered to me. To be a woman, a mum and a female producer: all of these feelings were in the music.”

    Celebrating the 50th release on the Nonplus label, Instra:mental return with their sophomore album Timelines. A long awaited record that finally uncovers the unreleased gems of the legendary Autonomic Podcast series. This eleven track album features five, previously vinyl only cuts, with another six unreleased tracks from the vault.

    This is an album that will feel nostalgic to some but new to others. Classics like Photograph and Pacific Heights transport the listener back to a time where Instra:mental started to blur the boundaries in a pool of multiple genres, allowing artists to dip their toes with creative freedom.

    This release is mainly rooted in 170bpm (with the exception of “More Than”) but effortlessly feels like its spanning multiple tempos. With the techno infused Encke Gap to the slow pulsings of Deep Night. Timelines represents the embodiment of the Autonomic “Drum & Bass” movement, a slice of time that sounds modern despite being more than a decade in existence.

    Timelines is a collectors piece that will sit happily in your physical or digital collection, an essential record that highlights the golden era of Instra:mental’s illustrious career.

    * 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.”

    As Mood II Swing, production duo Lem Springsteen and John Ciafone became one of the most in-demand remixers in the late '90s. The duo's production career began modestly, however. After a failed attempt at R&B, the two turned to house music. Early productions such as Sylvano's "Helpless" and Wall of Sound's "Critical" were a step in the right direction, as were releases such as "I Need a Bitch" for Cutting and "Searchin'" for Groove On, but it was the duo's remixes of Ultra Naté's "Free" for Strictly Rhythm that struck gold. The song became a huge hit and soon Mood II Swing was remixing big-name producers like BT ("Remember") and King Britt ("The Reason") as well as the next Ultra Naté single, "Found a Cure," which also became a huge hit record around the world. Then, as a testament to the duo's success, the New York-based Nervous have dug up the remixes Mood II Swing did for the label during their seminal mid 90's period re mastered and re released on wax for 2016.
