    1. A. Vanessa Kendrick - 90% Of Me Is You
    2. A 90% Of Me Is You

    A killer and essential head to head, back to back repress 7" right here.

    2 versions of this alltime, evergreen rare groove in one place, fully legit, remastered and repressed just for you.
    '90% of Me Is You' is widely known and loved, oft sampled and searched for high and low by soul aficionados and music lovers across the globe.

    Vanessa Kendrick's take is a breathier, sweeter affair. A ridiculously rare 45 to obtain and boasting a $500+ price tag too. Recorded a year before Gwen McCrae's and arguably the original version, hence it's top billing spot on the A-side. Obviously, Gwen McCrae's version is more widely known, and it is astoundingly good. Her sultry and yearning vocals complementing the lush arrangement and tough backbeat drums in a different way. Obviously both versions bring something to the table in their own respective ways, with our 2 fabulous vocalists channelling different feelings and different moods, but they are both simply amazing and worthy of a place in any self-respecting music lovers stash. Flawless.

    Licensed and reissued with the full involvement of the Henry Stone Music group for 2020. Featuring original classic Galdes label artwork.

    1. A Hit It N Quit It (Cratebug & Jamie 326 Edit)

    Yet another solid gold modern reimagining of the mighty Loleatta Holloway, this time her infamous 1977 smash 'Hit & Run' goes under the knife and is tweaked to devastating effect by 2 of Chicago's finest modern day editors - Jamie 326 & Cratebug. Anyone with even a passing interest in Disco or House will be more than familiar with these 2 guys names. Having edited and remixed numerous cuts in their own original ways, they take this all-time Salsoul classic and strip it right back to the essence, to the very basics, and in the process create a total dancefloor weapon. This edit originally came out a few years ago (2013) on a compilation that showcased the new wave of contemporary talent emanating from the Windy City and naturally it was one of the cuts that stood out, finding favour with a wide variety of DJ's across the board from Motor City Drum Ensemble, Todd Terry, Jeremy Underground Paris, Theo Parrish and more. Drawing comparisons with Paperclip People's anthemic 'Throw' from 1994 in the way it snatches a killer loop from 'Hit & Run's' bassline, 'Hit It & Quit It' is a monster, a record you'll literally play over and over and over again, a relentless Disco juggernaut that oozes power. It made perfect sense for this legit single-sided reissue 12" to come out on Salsoul Records, the home of Loleatta Holloway's finest material and all of her classics. This limited reissue has been made in conjunction with Jamie 3:26 & Cratebug and Salsoul Records, 100% sanctioned and lovingly re-presented for your dancing pleasure. This one is HOT. Sleep at your peril!

    1. A. Jingo
    2. B. Thousand Finger Man

    Candido Cameron was a Cuban percussion maestro who had played with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich and Count Basie throughout his illustrious musical career which started in 1952. Fast forward to 1979 and Candido finds himself caught up in the Disco boom that had engulfed his adopted New York City. Feeling he could add his trademark quick-fire Conga and Bongo playing to Disco's straight 4 x 4 syncopated rhythm he cut some records with legendary NYC label Salsoul. The fruits of this partnership were 2 full length LP's and a handful of 12" singles that changed the face of underground Disco."Jingo" is an all-time classic dance record, sampled, edited, re-configured and coveted by too many names to mention! It's a killer funky Disco version of master Nigerian drummer Olatunji's 1969 percussion suite of the same name, Salsoul style, while over on the flip we have one of the deepest Disco records of all time; "Thousand Finger Man" a testament to Candido's percussion prowess and a spacey, beautiful voyage that has left more than an indelible mark on modern House music, often being cited as a huge influence by artists such as Masters At Work and more. Essential stuff basically, every collection should have a copy!

    This 12" has got to be one of the toughest Salsoul records to find. Changing hands for up to £300 a time for a used copy. Now it has been re-mastered, re-pressed and made available again with all original label artwork intact with the permission of Salsoul Records, New York City.

    1. A Why Can't We Live Together
    2. B Why Can't We Live Together - LNTG No More War Rework

    Official re issue of this timeless classic featuring a fantastic update from Australia's Late Nite Tuff Guy - Tuff Cut Records. Their version has already had 62,000 plays on Soundcloud.

    In LNTG own words of how their "No More War Rework" came around :

    About 6 months ago, just before I set off on my 5 month tour of Europe I got a message from a good friend of mine asking me if I would edit a track that he loves.
    I said of course, and asked him what track.
    Turns out its a big favourite of mine also.
    'Why Can't We Live Together' by Timmy Thomas is an amazing song with a strong message that is even more relevant today than it was back in 1972.
    The message is clear, it's simple, it's beautiful.
    I'm saddened by recent events around the world and I've always tried to spread love through music, because for me, music is love.
    I hope you share the message and enjoy.
    LNTG <3

    1. A. There's Never Been No One Like You

    Another rare nugget culled from West Ends incredibly influential back catalog. "There's Never Been Someone Like You" is a smoothed out soulful Disco jam and a Paradise Garage classic! Produced by the mighty Kenton Nix whose credits include working on records for Taana Gardner, Gwen McCrae and The Treacherous Three among many others and featuring the exceptional vocal talents of underground Soul singer Bobby Youngblood.

    Kenton Nix was something of a prodigious production talent who worked on numerous independent and major label projects and was a good friend of Larry Levan and had the honor of hearing his rough mixes and versions through the Paradise Garage sound-system which helped shape the end result of the records he was involved in. "There's Never Been Someone Like You" has always been a popular and sought after 12" among Disco / Boogie / Funk collecting aficionados since it's release nearly 34 years ago in 1980 and continues to be an influential record now in contemporary dance music. An utterly essential Disco-groove!

    This is the very first time this record has been re-issued and this pressing features both the long "dance" version and shorter 7" mixes of the track just like the original pressing from 1980. It has been re-mastered and re-pressed with the permission of and in conjunction with West End Records, New York City.

    Ben Liebrand returns to High Fashion Music, the label where it all started decades ago. And delivered the Old-skool remix and dub-mix of Johnny Guitar Watson’s classic ‘Real Mother For Ya’. Ben highlights many great elements of the original recording and made sure that this remix is way more useful for the dance floor, adding convenient and mixable intros and breaks. Liebrand used the original multi-track, hence drum-sounds, but made sure the timing is now absolutely steady. Danceable vintage-funk, ready for 2020!

    High Fashion Music retrieved the original multi-track tape of this hidden Greg Scelsa produced disco-gem from the 80’s where Italian Luca Locatelli, a.k.a. “Moplen” did tear it apart completely and into detail , and produced 2 brand new versions.

    While the A side features a genuine disco version, cooked and mixed into perfection, with respect to the original, focusing on a authentic modern disco sound and arrangement, Moplen gives with the on the B-side featured “Reprise” a showcase of his praised talents, where the great vocals, accompanied by strings and horns of Delia are put in the spotlight, building up to a full version. Additional engineering and mastering by Ben Liebrand.

    2. B. Deetour (Moplen Cosmic Trip)

    When Italian Luca “Moplen” Locatelli asked High Fashion to feast his creativity on this one, they were rather sceptical. In fact, they preferred not. But how quick things can change! Moplen brought this nevertheless classic performance of Karen Young back to it’s basis, took as a tradition all tracks and stems apart, and reconstructed it into what it should have been back in 1982. With a flavour of 2020. Bringing the record to its original speed and key, based on the cosmic feel that comes with the lyrics of the song. And the way Karen performs it.

    On the B-side Moplen goes wild and makes no compromize where he brings us almost in a cosmic state of trance. But this is NO trance record. This is boogie. This is how Deetour should have basically been in 1982. But this is how Moplen and Karen Young sound in 2020!

    Mint Condition continue their mission excavating the outer fringes of classic House and Techno. Unreleased mixes, classics and overlooked gems mined from the last 20+ of contemporary dance music are the order of the day. From Chicago, Detroit and New York to London and beyond, Mint Condition have got their expert digging hats on to bring you exclusive heat and those rarer than rare jams that have been on your wants list for years! Dig in....

    Jhelisa Anderson's voice was ubiquitous throughout the mid 90's and beyond, her debut LP Galactica Rush had been released by Dorado to critical acclaim and Friendly Pressure was a huge single that crossed numerous underground borders, finding favour with soul fans and clubbers and DJ's alike, providing a late-night / early morning soundtrack to weekends spent partying, expressing and hanging out. Dorado commissioned numerous remixes of this future classic, but it was Ceri Evans' aka Sunship whose 2-step / UKG remixes in 1998 solidified Friendly Pressure as a stone-cold pirates anthem, a total smash on the buzzing UK Garage scene. Evans had been a member of the UK's legendary Jazz-funk outfit The Brand New Heavies, so his sound was a swinging fusion of soul, jazz and snapping UKG drum programming. Fused with Jhelisa's beautiful voice, the Sunship mixes are now regarded as classics and will undoubtedly bring the vibes to any dancefloor, sounding as fresh and soulful as they did back in 1998.

    Friendly Pressure has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of Dorado Recordings and was remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original DAT's especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to you by the caring folks at your favourite reissue label - Mint Condition!

    Before this illness was but a blip on the radar, before this epidemic became pandemic, we were looking forward to sharing this LP, Pacific Coliseum's How's Life, with you because, simply, it is a joy, but now it's taken on new, prescient dimensionality, and we're looking forward to it even more.

    Before, it was a salve, a relief from the monotony of daily life and the troubles that burden us, but now it is an antidote to the physical isolation we're experiencing. It's an inward-looking album, one that's gentle and tender, but it's not quiet. It's full of life, color, spirit; its purpose is to take the emotion on the inside and connect it with the bright, miraculous world on the outside.

    Full of jazzy melodies and funky riffs and easy drums that land with a measured poof rather than a aggressive pop, it is, we are certain, what you need right now.

    Comes packaged in a full-color sleeve, designed by Drew Heffron and Nik Mercer, featuring a photo by Ruvan Wijesooriya.

    A Bit Dandy EP is the first release to land on the seminal Hot Creations from sought after producer East End Dubs. Here he serves up three club-ready rollers that showcase his distinct production style, keeping in tune with the Hot Creations signature sound.

    Well known for delivering slick and texturally rich tracks, East End Dubs sculpts each output to be a dynamic mix of function and form with a real sense of soul, and this delivery on Hot Creations is no exception. Dis kicks off proceedings, with a low-swinging bassline and punchy vocal hooks, building and dropping throughout for maximum impact. Next up LFO follows suit, with another highly infectious bassline, that whomps and oozes the sound of the UK. Last up, Staines Groove bounces along as spacey synths play in and out to create trippy moments on the dancefloor.

    East End Dubs has an impressive back catalogue on various labels like Fuse and Moon Harbour as well as his own East End Dubs Vinyl. Putting out limited edition slabs of multi-coloured vinyl, the hotter than hot label has become a much talked about outlet that has found its way into the bags of serious selectors like Raresh and Riccardo Villalobos. The talented producer is also the man behind Eastenderz, which puts out his own work as well as A&Ring exciting new talents next to established favourites. The vitality of his DJ sets have taken him across Europe, America and Australia. From Eastenderz Showcases in Berlin, New York, Ibiza and Zurich to fabric, DC10 and Amnesia Ibiza, he plays high profile gigs and international festivals, and always leaves his mark.

    4. B2. Pulse

    Swedish DJ/Producer Christian Nielsen debuts on Maceo Plex's Ellum imprint with the ‘Love Struck’ EP this May.

    The four track EP continues a strong start to 2020 with releases from Raxon and Avision and, true to the label’s form, is all about weighty, characterful cuts from Nielsen, an artist who has previously chalked up releases for the likes of Kompakt, Of Unsound Mind and Play it Down.

    The titular opener of ‘Love Struck’ is a swaggering, low slung affair with a growling bassline underpinning a pitch shifted vocal refrain and piercing rave stabs - a mutant beast which fuses techno, Garage and rave aesthetics in anthemic style. The skeletal rhythms and gritty acid flair of ‘For Myself’ follow in a track that, through some nifty builds, manages to pull off a big room energy as much as it does a basement vibe. ’Switch’ is next up and, with a rock solid groove, vocal sample and subaquatic tones, displays just how well Nielsen can create a monster with few elements. The heaviest track, ‘Pulse’, rounds off ‘Love Struck’ with a huge, padding kick drum and resonant percussive lead doing the heavy lifting while counterpointed by judiciously employed warm, cossetting jazz flute licks

    This 3 track EP comes out of Ibiza Record's vault called Archives Vol 6. Each of these tracks represents hardcore and the merging of jungle breaks in the early developments of Jungle musik from the early 90s.

    A.DOWN WITH YOU - This track produced by Two On A Tip was made back in 1993-94 and was never released on Ibiza Records back then. The sic intro with the RnB n Ragga samples with stretched vocals alongside synthesized piano stabs merged with some wicked Jungle patterns giving a groovy feel.

    AA. WALK ON BY - This unreleased track made in 1993-94 produced by 2 On A Tip on the label has a sic synthesized piano stabs intro n rolls into a wicked set of rolling drum n Jungle patterns. Wicked instrumental showcasing how versatile Jungle musik was becoming way back then.

    AAA. KEEP SKANKING - This track produced in 1993-94 by 2 On a Tip has a classic reggae sample n stretched vocals sitting over the drum n jungle patterns with rhythmic high hats stabbing through.
    Giving that jungle essence with the heavyweight basslines that connect straight to the core.

This release also boasts the original version taken directly from the studio masters of the highly sought after 12".

    4. B2 - Cola (Mousse T.'s Glitterbox Mix)

    Undoubtedly one of the most addictive records of 2017, CamelPhat & Elderbrook’s ‘Cola’ has been a defining musical moment of the year. Growing exponentially since its release, the track has captivated tastemakers, DJs and clubbers alike, topping charts and blowing up worldwide to become a true modern anthem. Leading on from the success of the original and some heavyweight remixes, three of which hit the Beatport top ten – for the first time on vinyl, comes a remix package set to continue ‘Cola’s’ dance floor domination.

    Rising superstar Franky Rizardo’s suitably heavyweight remix comes correct with a club-friendly update that elevates the unmissable vocal hook and bottoms out the breakdown. Dario D’Attis’ vinyl exclusive mix continues the club feel with rolling grooves, teasing breakdowns and shuffling hi-hats in a remix which packs a punch, guaranteed to get people moving from the get-go. Mousse T. flips the track completely, bringing those Glitterbox vibes to Defected, taking ‘Cola’ to the next level and going straight to Traxsource #1 in the process.

    You may remember the closing of Space, Ibiza with Carl Cox when he played a bootleg of Total Confusion.
    Barry Obzee Hobbs (Rising High A&R) spent a lot of time trying to locate the Remixer and finally did a few months ago. We have now signed the remix which will be released on vinyl in May and on digital in July. The story goes like this: Carl Cox has been playing the version at most of his shows including Tomorrow Land, Kappa Future Fest and Timewarp ( see video clip below) but this is where the story becomes more interesting. The Remixer, ROD Malmok from Rotterdam aka Benny Rodriguez, who is a very established DJ Producer playing for Loco Dice in Ibiza etc and releasing on Ben Klock's imprint Klockwork, Chris Liebing's imprint CLR, Adam Beyer's imprint Drumcode and many more was inspired to remix the track through a conversation with Dubfire, Rod gave him a rough copy the following day. He played it to Carl Cox at Space, Ibiza and Cox begged him for a copy - see video below
    If you've been around the scene for a while you will know that Rising High Records was one of the first labels to shape Techno, Hardcore and Breakbeat in the UK and was huge!

    Hot on the heels of DR's maiden release we are pleased to present the evergreen Blue Magic and their anthemic 'Welcome To The Club', apparently a firm fave with Ron Hardy would routinely begin his DJ sets with this wondrous Philly beauty. The record has always been a big influence on the house scene with it finding new fans over and over, and it's easy to see why - brilliant arrangements, musicianship and of course - those voices! Disco bliss. On the flip side is the mighty Tom Moulton's mix of the Blue's 1979 smasher 'Look Me Up', another premium slice of incredible disco soul for the dancers and the lovers.

    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!

    Released on TRAX in the golden year of 1989 Chicago's Virgo aka friends Eric Lewis and Merwyn Sanders, along with peers such as Larry Heard and Frankie Knuckles, gently pushed House music towards a more musically sophisticated realm that hadn't been explored previously. Across 8 tracks Virgo took us on a deep exploration of sound that was both masterfully arranged and produced and in direct contrast to a lot of the rudimental and jacking drum tracks that were the flavour of the day. There are few debut albums in the electronic sphere that can claim the title of 'classic', but this is surely one of them. A defining turning point in dance music, the dawn of what would later be referred to as the 'deep house' movement and sound is all evident with the grooves of this legendary record. Often listed as one of the 'greatest LP's of all time', this self-titled odyssey remains an essential, must have record that never loses it's magic, flawless in every way and still trailblazing today. Every home should have one. Remastered in conjunction with TRAX, repressed from the finest audio sources available. Often imitated, never replicated! 100% legit.

    Crosstown Rebels assemble an A-star team of pioneers and legends for the next mammoth release on the label. ‘Touch Your Body’ comes courtesy of Felix Da Housecat, Jamie Principle and Vince Lawrence aka The 312 with sublime remixes from Moodymann.

    Felix Da Housecat explains how “growing up on south side of Chicago I was a huge fan of Frankie Knuckles and Jamie Principle. Vince Lawrence was over at Chicago Trax and was the blueprint A&R and catalyst there signing anything hot. By this time I was around 14 and I had just made my first record ‘Fantasy Girl’, with DJ PIERRE. Over the years I was becoming obsessed with Jamie’s sound. We soon became friends and always discussed working together and it took 15 years. Frankie’s passing woke me up. I felt I wanted to do something special and it was time to fly back to Chicago to my roots. I wanted to go back where it all began and work with the originators. I called Vince and said I need your mind, guidance and your studio and all of us in one room to bring that spirit back in my soul. I told him we had Jamie Principle and the rest I guess is history. I wanted Crosstown for the project as I felt Damian was the only guy worthy and would understand and treat this project right. House Music needs this right now.. So here we are.”

    Felix Da Housecat’s career spans more than thirty years with two Grammy nominations. Never failing to impress, he now brings us his latest venture as producer of The 312 project. Jamie Principle is one of the most recognisable voices in the history of house music, featuring on some of the first house records ever made including the seminal ‘Your Love’ with Frankie Knuckles. Business man, producer and Trax Records organizer Vince Lawrence is another true Chicago house music innovator, responsible for the pivotal house track ‘On & On’ with Jesse Saunders and the ‘Virgo Tracks’ releases. Mahogani Music founder Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann grew up in Detroit with his first several releases appearing on Carl Craig’s Planet E imprint. 2016 saw him next in the series to mix the respected ‘DJ-Kicks’ with outstanding results.

    In it’s original form Waiting For You To Call secured radio plays on 6 Music, Radio 1, Jazz FM and various regional specialist shows, plus the track got playlisted on Rinse FM. These remixes will appeal more to club DJs and will fit in with house and nu-disco sets from a broad section of DJs.

    It’s been a while since any artist has secured a remix from Derrick Carter and the HMD boys are thrilled that the world famous Chicago DJ has honoured them with a remix of their debut single - and he certainly doesn’t disappoint. DC is on top form here with his epic mid-tempo house interpretation that keeps the soul of the original track whilst giving it some extra dance floor dynamism. With nods to classic 90’s remixes from Frankie Knuckles and David Morales this is one for the connoisseurs and ravers alike.

    The HMD boys with the help of Luke Solomon create a dubbed out and more pacy version of the original on the flip side with their remix and they report that it’s been going down a storm in their sets from Output in New York to recent gigs in Glasgow, Berlin and Manchester.

    With a brand new track featuring the vocals of Amy Douglas set for February and a Radio 1 Essential Mix to be aired on December 23rd, the HMD sound is going from a steady canter to a gallop.

Unreleased mixes, classics and overlooked gems mined from the last 20+ of contemporary dance music are the order of the day. From Chicago, Detroit and New York to London, Croydon and beyond, Mint Condition have got their expert digging hats on to bring you exclusive heat and those rarer than rare jams that have been on your wants list for years! Dig in....

    Released in 2000 on London's cult Oblong label, 100HZ's sublime 'Whisper / Funkin' is back on the streets. If you were doing the rounds in Soho back in the day, you will have undoubtedly copped some fine records from Berwick Street's 'Vinyl Junkies' store, the Oblong label was heavily connected to the store and to Bushwacka's equally cult Plank record label. 100HZ were one part of a pool producers connected to these crews and the burgeoning tech-house scene that was making waves at the turn of the millennium in the capital. Deep, sparse, taut and melodic production, strange sounds and left-field sonics, these were the ingredients of these extremely inventive and original UK sounds. Elements of breaks, garage, Detroit techno and more all fused to create a truly groundbreaking sound. Since '89, 100HZ's Lee Renacre and James Chapman managed to craft a few classics, 'Whisper / Funkin' is just one of them! The a-side is a sleek, melodic cut with phased, vocoder-ish vox, an internal monologue touching on the stresses of modern city life and escapism. A contemporary classic. Side-B is some tight funk! Ultra stripped back production, killer drum programming, the sound of gliding along through a futuristic metropolis. Highly polished and progressive late-night house sounds right here. Essential all round! The real sound of London circa the millennium. Check it.

    This EP has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of 100HZ and all license holders for 2019 and remastered by the mighty Curvepusher from the original sources especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released.

    The first of 2 heavyweight Bushwacka! reissues, essential underground business right here, from the streets of London. Matthew B aka Bushwacka! is a longtime stalwart of the vast London scene, with a career that would make most crumble, he's been at the top of his game for longer than most in the booth and behind the boards. Having presented this collabo with DJ Vorn back in 1995 on his own Plank Records imprint, it's obvious that Bushwacka! is a studio genius, the mix, the engineering, everything about these records is top shelf. 'No Smoke' is ridiculously deep, the 'Deep Dap Dap' mix on side A is absolutely killer, rolling tranced-out house music of the highest order, just devastating, and when that breakbeat comes in it's game over. This is it. On side B we have the 'They're Comin' For Us' mix, which is totally different, yet completely essential, more breakbeat heavy than it's predecessor it's another finely crafted bass-bin troubler, how do these records sound like they were made yesterday, yet they're over 20 years old? Absolutely in the bag. Do yourself a favour, and cop one of these!

    Part 2 of 2 - Two Full Minds are back, Bushwacka! & DJ Vorn dropped this incredible EP in 1996. It's very rare that you come across music from this time period that still sounds so very contemporary. Super original, amazing sonics, and guaranteed to smash out a dance, all of the cuts on 'Michael's Path' are insanely good. Chock full of sick drum programming, abyss-deep basslines and wigged out, spacey melodies these jams are here to stay... in your record bag! It's got everything you want really, it's the sound of truly original and underground heads doing their own thing. One can only imagine the impact these cuts had on the late 90's dancefloor?! Not sounding like anything else out there, even today.

    More vinyl remixes from Psychemagik with the long awaited official 'Dancehall Days' remix sanctioned by Jack Hues from Wang Chung himself. Jack liked Psychemagiks re-edit of Dance Hall Days so much he contacted the duo and offered them the parts for an official remix. The result is a monster dancefloor friendly beast that is true to the original edit but with some extra magik! ‘Psychemagik stand out from the crowd with high production values and innate musicality. I usually find remixes tedious, but this takes you on some off-world journey – very cool.’ Jack Hues (Wang Chung)

    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.

    2. A2 Dany F - Chalole Batata
    3. B1 Christian S - The Power Of Now
    4. B2 Philipp Gorbachev & Hugo Capablanca & La Muerte - Berlan Esta Helado

    After only a tiny time-out Cómeme can´t help but remain restless and return even more internationalist than before, since this EP brings together artists from Moscow, Medellin and Cologne, as well as guests from Spain. It´s a collection of tracks that translate Cómeme's ever quintessential voltage into different musical temperaments, drawing the bow from infectious semi-electronic body music and cumbia-inspired rhythm affairs to detached pitch-frenzied sequence-disco and a sphinxy creature with fanfares and whiplashes. Typical Cómeme the opener doesn´t falter to capture the dancer. Berlín esta helado (Berlin is frozen) is the stirring and boisterous result of a jam session held in Matias Aguayo's district studio in Berlin, not far from David Bowie's late 70s address and close to a cemetery which harbours the Brothers Grimm. Philipp Gorbachev (prod.), Hugo Capablanca (voc.) and La Muerte (bass) tackle these and other spirits with extra energy infusion. 17-year old Colombian Dany F is a newcomer to the Cómeme kin. Apart from running his own label in Medellin he' s pretty much active in generously giving away his music on Soundcloud. Rumour has it that the Medellin scene has some surprises to offer. Here we have an exquisite foretaste, an exercise in offbeat effectivity. With The Power Of Now Christian S, Cologne-based DJ and long time collaborator with Matias Aguayo, deepens his very own definition of celebrating the electrifying moment. See what pitch can do to you. There is some Cheri in the drums, some Throbbing Gristle in the sequence, but out of this crackpot bottle jumps a genie in the guise of frenzied pitch-nutty snares. And yes, one does snarerolls again. This irresistable piece follows in the steps of his Cómeme classic Jagos. It´s nomen est omen par exellence. Geffen was originally a clandestine love declaration to the Cómeme sound, made public on one wild party night when its producer Daniel Ansorge a.k.a Barnt (also a co-founder of the much acclaimed Cologne-based label Magazine) eventually played it to the crowd. Why on earth did he hesitate? It instantly turned out that Geffen was frenetically loved back. Not only by the dancers but also by Cómeme DJs who spin it ever since. True to the motto that elegance is refusal this cornerstone in stripped down octave-lunacy gets rid of any fancywork for the sake of hypnotic bliss.

    For the last 20 years London-based author and party organiser Tim Lawrence has dedicated himself to excavating the history of New York City party culture and bringing some of the most powerful aspects of that culture to London’s dance scene, from where it has ricocheted around the world. Having conducted the first set of major interviews with David Mancuso, Lawrence started to put on Loft-style Lucky Cloud Sound System parties with David and friends in London in June 2003. In early 2004 he published Love Saves the Day: A History of American Dance Music Culture, 1970-79, which tracked the influence of the Loft on the wider New York DJ, dance and disco scene. In 2009 his biography of the iconic musician Arthur Russell became the first book to map the wider downtown music scene. These beautifully written and politically insightful histories have educated, inspired and celebrated the previously overlooked foundations of contemporary dance music.

    Lawrence’s most recent publication, Life & Death On The New York Dancefloor, 1980 – 1983, published in late 2016, shines a light on 'one of the most dynamic and creative periods in the history of New York City'. Falling between the more regularly celebrated sounds of disco, house and techno, the period produced a uniquely hybrid series of sounds that never acquired a settled name. This led them to be largely ignored by historians and even DJs, yet the power of the period’s music and the scenes it birthed, Lawrence argues, remains undeniable. Met with a rapturous response, Life and Death On The New York Dance Floor saw Lawrence on the road for most of the next year as he spread the word about the characters, the records, the clubs and the bands that shaped the post-Disco, post-Punk, and burgeoning Hip Hop landscapes of New York City during the early 1980s—a period when freedom still ruled.
