    4. B1. Suzanne Kraft Remix
    5. B2. Duncan Forbes Remix

    Taken from their acclaimed self-titled debut album, ‘One Hand Tommy’ is its latest single and proves no matter how strange our world seems right now, it could always be stranger…

    In a blitz session of blood curdling vocals, disarticulated fretwork and wickelly deranged lyricism, ‘One Hand Tommy’ sees The Imbeciles tell us the tale of: Tommy; a child trapped in a dystopian landscape of nuclear annihilation with only a giant killer snake for company.

    ‘One Hand Tommy’ is the latest exhilarating track to be released from The Imbeciles self-titled debut album - out now. Comprising 13 imploded songs which rarely last more than two minutes, the album was recorded on tape in eight deranged days on the Texan-Mexican border. Packed with stripped-down musical information and resonant with atmosphere, the album was hailed by CLASSIC ROCK as “Some kind of Apocalypse Now” (✭✭✭✭). The band also gained masses of support at radio from BBC 6 Music, Radio X, BBC Radio 1, amongst others. The delirious fun of ‘One Hand Tommy’ is just another reason to believe the hype...

    And now it’s been remixed by DJ Tennis & Danny Daze, Mark Broom, Suzanne Kraft and Duncan Forbes.

    The remixes have picked up a fantastic amount of support from a long list of names, including this lot – Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Red Axes, Jackie House, Len Faki, Gerd Janson, Laurent Garnier, Ben Sims and more!

    1. A. Murphy's Law (Cosmodelica Remix)
    2. B. Murphy's Law

    Today, Róisín Murphy teams up with producer and DJ Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy on the fabulous ‘Cosmedelica’ remix of her latest disco masterclass 'Murphy’s Law’. Transformed into a funky, strutting number, the already rapturous track evolves into something equally joyous and electrifying.

    Revered by her peers, Colleen is a hugely respected radio broadcaster, music producer, remixer, record label owner and founder of Classic Album Sundays, coming up in the ranks in the DJ world with her unique take on the craft and knowledge of club culture.

    She says, "When I heard ‘Murphy’s Law' for the first time, it pressed every melodic and lyrical button. And as we evolve into a new reality, the song takes on new meanings - sometimes tragic (‘all my hard work goes down the drain’) but ultimately resilient (‘pretty soon I’ll be breaking loose and the scene y’ll be changing). We’re not ready to break loose yet, but when we do, we’ll have the best party. Ever."

    Róisín further explains, “This remix came about in the way all the best ones do. Colleen had a vision for the track, she wanted to do it and she doesn’t do a lot of remixes. Colleen’s linage and pedigree is so deeply embedded in the music I love, I feel foolish even going into it here, I don’t like to name drop!

    When she asked could she do the mix, my mind was blown. Murphy versus Murphy in the funky case of Murphy’s Law!!!” Róisín also recently created a series of 6 performance videos for the renowned Manchester club night Homoelectric’s recent Stay Homo 12 hour live stream – a rave for these times - and you can now watch them in all their glory here.

    It was here that she first debuted the dizzyingly addictive Cosmodelica remix. Murphy’s 25 year career has been one of unbridled, unmatched creativity and these mind-melting, breathtaking videos, all made in her living room during lockdown, once again showcase why she is such a trailblazer.

    Last month Murphy co-hosted a 3fm show from her living room and more recently fans voted to celebrate and delve into her “Overpowered” album as part of Tim Burgess’ “#Timstwitterlisteningparty”, which has become the most replayed of the series . So much so that Róisín is returning on June 19 to discuss seminal Moloko record “Statues”. If this hive of activity wasn’t enough, expect a full length album in the summer featuring all of Murphy’s iconic singles with DJ Parrot (“Simulation”, “Jealousy”, Incapable”, “Narcisuss” and most recently “Murphy’s Law”), alongside brand new tracks.

    2. A2. The Devil In Mr Holmes (The Erotic Soul)
    3. B. I Might Be Ok (The Faithful Soul)

    Westcoast Goddess first came to our attention at the end of 2018 following his debut release on Canadian label Heart To Heart, but his productions actually date right back to ’93 (under various different guises) when he first began making music with his trusty Roland DR550 and Kawai K1. With a fresh and distinctive sound, WG successfully fused soulful touches and late 80’s-era digital synths with raw, punchy grooves and a euphoric, ravey atmosphere. Since then, the Berlin-based producer has built a solid following amongst underground house heads with subsequent releases dropping on esteemed labels such as Omena, Slam City Jams and Let’s Play House.

    Opening up the EP we have Step Inline (The Narcotic Soul), which is a piano driven, uplifting slice of house heaven. A simple repeating 2 bar chord pattern lays down the foundation for soaring strings, cascading chimes and seductive echoing vocal hook.

    Next up we have The Devil In Mr Holmes (The Erotic Soul) which once again goes heavy on the piano stabs but this time developing the arrangement into something that feels more like an instrumental dub of a long lost Prelude release. Crystalline synth lines come and go, whilst electronic tom hits add pace and energy to the unrelenting house groove.

    Flipping over we have the epic I Might Be Ok (The Faithful Soul) coming in at over 9 minutes and being all the better for it. A dirty Moog bassline leads the charge with beautiful synth lines layering up on top, creating a blissed-out vibe which can’t fail to lift your spirits.

    12. B6. Ready For Me

    On their second album Made Me Feel, Fabrikate take a trip back to the glory days of disco, a time when love was the answer, inclusion was the only message worth spreading and everyone was invited.

    Fabrikate are Francis and Chuck — two guys with similar tastes and interests digging into the past to uncover some long lost musical wisdom. Their devotion to this quest grants them laser focus, working like madmen to create bumping, neon-flecked sonic landscapes for their listeners to wander through.

    Both Francis and Chuck have their own personal tie to the disco era and the forgotten magic it left with. They grew up listening to celestial funk throughout their childhoods in Montreal, an island with deep disco roots of its own. The music they produce as Fabrikate takes the spirit of disco and weave it into a modern sound, with breathtaking results.

    “We both grew up immersed in disco in our own ways. The music and the culture of that era has always been a deep influence. Disco culture was very inclusive and non-judgemental. It was always about the vibes and the experience. With Fabrikate we’re creating our own interpretation of what disco music means for us today.” Fabrikate

    Across 14 unique tracks, Made Me Feel blends both house music and disco influences into a sound that while heavily influenced by the sounds of the past, also manages to remain rooted in modern-day dancefloors, and takes inspiration from the US, Europe and of course their native Canada.

    “Montreal was a major player in the disco scene even back in its early days, had an important effect on a whole generation. We feel that Montreal has incredible artistic diversity, and that has a lot to do with the emergence of disco and how the city played a role in it.” Fabrikate

    From the very start of album opener It’s Coming Down, the tone is set: a triumphant brass refrain that drops into a fast-paced 4/4 beat and glorious vocals. From there the album kicks on in magnificent fashion with the life-affirming filtered loops of Feed The Flame and basement stomp of Into The Ground, one of the album’s most overtly house records.

    Another clear album highlight is lead single Love Was Real, a joyous disco-house hybrid with a triumphant vocal, punchy drums and a brass hook that will bring a smile to even the most hardened of dancefloor veterans.

    Fabrikate have an innate ability to pick out a wonderful sample and transform it into something almost overwhelmingly powerful: the aforementioned Love Was Real and the equally infectious New York City Man being prime examples of this. Years of obsessing over obscure disco records have given both Francis and Chuck a wealth of geeky knowledge on which to draw, and this album is a masterclass in how to do sampling properly.

    A joyous homage to an era of which happiness and hedonism was the main focus of the music, Made Me Feel is a phenomenal accomplishment, and one that will bring joy to disco revivalists and newcomers alike.

    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....

    Rewind to 1994, something brand new is stirring in the studio of the Housey Doingz crew, a fresh stripped down, swinging sort of funk emanating from the monitors. This would be their very first record as a unit and they definitely didn't know what sort of impact it would have in the coming decades. A record like this would certainly have sounded alien back then, but boy you can guarantee it caught people's ears! Kicking off with that infamous vocal sample 'Brothers' is a bonafide roller of the highest order, punctuated by dubbed out pianos too - devastating! 'Brothers Bump' is almost the 2nd part of the first cut, while they share some of the characteristics, it's it's own little world of acidic funk, try it - you might like it... 'Poet' welcomes us to the B-side, those cymbals just pull you in, almost jazz style, this one's a breaky minimal peaking number, killer. 'Magical' is the EP closer, and it's another total trippy weapon akin to the output of Holy Ghost Inc and similar outfits with it's building wall of acid and clipped vox. The whole record is so varied and brilliant it had noted journalist, producer and DJ Dave Mothersole proclaim "the first tech house record is arguably this". A truly rare record that every home should have, now on the streets again. Wicked.

    The Brothers EP has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of the Housey Doingz massive 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!

Capturing the energy of a hot and steamy dancefloor in full flow, this special edition, 12” purple vinyl package shows Honey’s unapologetic, hedonistic and achingly cool style at its finest. Opening with the raw, seductive interlude ‘Introducing La Femme Fantastique’, Honey’s industrial and electrifying club cut follows, as Josh’s captivating vocal narrates, the hypnotic lyrics are echoed with her mesmerising production. On the flip, KiNK & KEi deliver their captivating remix, with gradual builds, an irresistible bassline and swirling, otherworldly synths destined to excite selectors of the highest order. There is no doubt this killer EP is set to become one of the most in demand releases of 2020, as artists of the highest order come together on a package designed for dancefloor escapism.

    3. B2. Castellammare (Priku Remix)

    Cult underground crew BAR Musica return with more gold, this time from label head Bartolomeo with two original tracks and a super remix by Romanian wizard Priku.

    Italian Bartolomeo has studied classical music all his life and brings his love of jazz, blues and plenty more to the electronic world. He has released on key labels like Claque Musiqe and Crosstown Rebels but saves this one for his own imprint.

    Opener Castellammare is silky and seductive, with slippery synths and stripped back, rubbery drum programming really making for a hypnotic vibe. It is perfect late night dancing material with bumpy grooves while Proprio Tu is an inviting sound world of modulated synths, hiccuping drum loops and freaky vocal sounds. The devil is in the detail of this one which is designed to seep into your brain and stay there.

    Closing things out is cult favourite Priku, who ups the ante with his corrugated drum lines and scattered synth effects on a fantastic remix of Castellammare. It's a heady track that oozes class.

    Here are three high class, high quality house tracks for the ones who like it deep and heady.

    1. A. Maracuja
    2. B. I Came To Destroy
    3. B2. Grove Street

    On August 21st rising DJ/producer Haider presents the ‘Endless Clouds’ EP on his own label
    Breaker Breaker, where pristine future electro meets high tech funk and raw, jacking house.
    This new release follows praise from a wide selection of world-class DJs and media for his
    past 12”s, not to mention achievements as label owner, party promoter, canny early spotter
    of talent and general proactive instigator.

    Now based in Berlin but originally from Sheffield via a stint in London, there’s a commonality
    throughout all of Haider Masroor’s music that links both thematically and geographically. His
    productions recall both Steel City bleep and its distant younger cousin bassline, using only
    sparse elements, with beats and bass at the fore, to deadly effect. London is audible too via
    the spiky energy of grime and the swinging shuffle of UK funky, and so is Berlin, evident in
    the sleek sheen and efficient precision.

    On ‘Maracuja’ lush pads, pitched-up vocal snippets, bleeps and proper electro beats ride
    atop a deep, purring bassline that unfurls like giant waves, with sub bass punctuation adding
    further hefty depth.

    The bouncy, punchy beats and pristine gleam of ‘I Came To Destroy’ are somewhere
    between celestial Miami bass and the aquatic grooves of Drexciya, again propelled by
    gigantic slo-mo bass tones.

    A modern take on the cut-up samples of 90s house, on ‘Grove Street’ Haider mixes
    elements of classic French touch, Chicago rawness and low fi outsider grit, to create
    something very enticing indeed.

    The Art Of Us (TAOU) begins with the story of Blair French, a cosmic messenger raised in a house of 7 on the outskirts of a historic city. From dancing at mom's disco parties at a young age, to releasing rap tapes in middle school, winning best soundtrack for the multi-award-winning film DETROPIA and hitting the Billboard charts with his Pure Sounds of Michigan compilation; ultimately French found a home in the world of all things Detroit, Pan-African, Balearic, and ambient. TAOU is his first instrumental LP under his own name, (despite a 25 year career), bringing together his closest musical compatriots.

    Blair's diverse production shines on this immersive 14 track release, transcending organic/electronic, uptempo/downtempo, and light/dark, tapping in heavyweight characters including Pathe Jassi, John Arnold, Craig Huckaby, Todd Modes, Kaylan Waterman, Peter Croce, Eddie Logix, Paul Randolph, 2040, Michael Jurczak and more.

    Sonically, TAOU holds peak-hour Deep Cosmic Afro House freak outs ("Faded By The Sun", "Celebration Ritual", "F O A", "Chest Drum"), blunted beatdown cuts ("Stay Detroit", "Jeans", "Drop Ceiling Shuffle", "River Crossing"), and soulful R&B and Afrobeat compositions ("Honey Rooftops", "Genes", "Space Time Curvature").

    Mastered by Atjazz, the vinyl is cut loud to lacquer by Carl at Trutone, and pressed with love at Archer on the east side of Detroit. It includes a double sided full color art insert with lyrics on the flip side.

    Picking up where 2018's debut album left off, Pleasurekraft continue their foray into the Cosmic Techno sub-genre they helped usher in to the dance music lexicon.

    Having released on their own Kraftek label - as have fellow techno explorers Spektre this year - and had one of the biggest tracks last year on Drumcode with their remix for Adam Beyer's “Space Date,' they always bring forward thinking grooves embellished with astral melodies and spaced out synths that make for emotional as well as physical experiences.

    The new album Love in the Age of Machines is in no short supply of the sonic signatures the production duo have become known for, there is a clear maturation at work here. The album's non-techno tracks showcase an artistry rarely seen in conventional dance music and techno in particular. From the gritty dystopian future that establishes the album's themes at the onset in Last Sapien, to the dark, rainy, urban-lit textures that form the spine of Nostalgic for the Future, there is a sense of impending self-wrought catastrophe, tempered with a sense of wonder of all that is, and all that could be if humanity somehow overcomes its hubris.

    Things get more intense and turbulent on Panopticon (The Patron Saint of Global Surveillance) [ft. Thomas Gandey] before the voyage to the edges of our galaxy continues on I Sing the Body Electric & Main Sequence which keep up the enthralling techno atmospheres with increasing pressure, before the tension is released with the cinematic grandeur of Novacene. Two more hard hitting bangers in At The Mountains of Madness and Primordial then rebuild the all consuming techno mood before you're left adrift in the cosmos with the album's swan song Requiem For the American Dream.

    As Kaveh Soroush of Pleasurekraft puts it, "Without sounding too reductionist, humans are simply a bundle of biochemical algorithms with a few holes at either end, who mistake their sensory experiences as objective, and their sense of self as something concrete, when in fact science reveals to us with each new finding that our basic intuitions about reality and the world around us have not evolved much from our first ancestors, who just wanted to make sure not to get eaten for long enough to feed and procreate on the African savannah. While there are certainly wonders about the Cosmos we have discovered given our enlarged frontal lobes, and technologies that we've invented dating back to when the first tool was built thanks to an opposable thumb, we haven't been the best custodians of the only planet that can sustain us, and history makes it abundantly clear that our wisdom lags far behind the technological advancements we develop with each new day."

    Despite the overtly pessimistic tone, ultimately there is a sense of potential change on the horizon. That perhaps a species which has come up with abstract ideas of love, justice, liberty, and created works of immense artistic and scientific beauty, might just find a way to correct course before it's too late. This sense of wonder is in full display on The Occupant, and the potential seed for our enlightenment is planted in Corpse Reviver Number 3, a track brimming with homages to the love of philosophy and its place in navigating a more examined life.

    Ultimately Love in the Age of Machines feels like a dystopian sci-fi soundtrack written for optimists who want to change humanity's looming fate. While still firmly rooted in the techno genre, the album evokes themes and ideas that are universal to the human experience and our place in the Cosmos, and it is this aspect of the album that makes Love in the Age of Machines such a rewarding musical experience. It's techno that is at once accessible and intelligent, a combination rarely heard in today's endless sea of dance music.

    3. B. SURVIVE (Om Unit Remix)

    Founded by SHERELLE and NAINA, the highly anticipated label Hooversound has been making a lot of noise this year. Following on from their debut release from Hyroglifics and Sinistarr, they followed up in June with an another explosive EP from London’s Deft. They’re back to mark the third release on the imprint, this time with UK producer HØST delivering two moody bass driven tracks, with an official remix from Bristol legend, Om Unit.

    HØST has experimented across a wide variety of genres, all laced with his uniquely dark sound. The two tracks on the EP are no doubtably the slowest BPM we’ve seen Hooversound explore, both spanning from 135-145, which shows the versatility and depth of the label whilst reflecting the broad sounds within the exciting UK bass scene.

    Whilst HØST delivers the deep technical production, Hooversound brings in one of the most influential artists in electronic music, Om Unit, on the official remix of ‘Survive’. Om Unit brings the tempo up with his signature sound, flipping ‘Survive’ into a fierce 80bpm record, giving the EP an extra dose of energy.

    HØST began experimenting with production around the age of 13. He went on to learn piano, trumpet and guitar which sparked his passion for electronic music production which leads to his sound today. Having had releases across Noisia’s imprints, Saturate Records and Aufect Recordings, HØST is a producer that experiments with twisted bass and melodic melancholy pads which is perfectly executed in HOO03.

    Hooversound founders, NAINA and SHERELLE are excited to finally announce the official release date and tracklist for HOO03, that was teased in their recent DJ Mag mix.

    6. B3 C.A.R.R.I.O.N. (Outro) PM

    Mysterious and masked techno talent Paul Villard unveils more of his musical weaponry on the Lone Romantic label this August.

    Nothing is known about this artist but from the fact that, “strange and unusual superhuman powers and abilities” came to him after a “gamma accident.” He has released on Blind Allies and Applied Research, remixed Carl Finlow and is a producer with a cinematic electro sound.

    Futuristic opener 'Side Effects’ is a bumping electro cut with a stuttering drum pattern and squelchy synth funk from another planet. ‘Submarine Limousine’ keeps up the cyborg styles with a crisp electro groove that is run through by sci-fi vocals and effects, while ’Fluid Dynamics’ is all watery synth droplets and fractured vocals panning about the mix. Taught bass stabs keep you on your toes and make for an otherwordly robot disco vibe.

    The second half of this well-crafted EP starts with the glowing pads and creepy atmospheres of
    ‘Bioluminescence’, a classic Drexcyian electro jam that charges hard and deep into the cosmos. ‘Neon Death’ is an explosion of coruscated synth lines and bumping bass, tripped out machine sounds and warped electro-techno before closer ‘C.A.R.R.I.O.N.’ zones you out with intense ambient pads and modulated synths that are restless and paranoid.

    With this majestic EP, Paul Villard paints and vivid picture of some distant interplanetary world.

    2. B. Plastic Dreams (Nicole Moudaber Passion Runs Deep Remix)

    Renowned record label and events brand Renaissance announce the next release in their acclaimed The ReMix Collection - a scintillating reworking of Jaydee’s 1992 R&S classic ‘Plastic Dreams’ from one of the leading names in techno: Producer, DJ & MOOD Records label boss Nicole Moudaber.

    Nicole Moudaber’s spectacular and atmospheric remix of ‘Plastic Dreams’ is already receiving strong DJ support, not least from Carl Cox, who has been playing it out as a highlight of his recent sets.

    A track that Nicole Moudaber had always wanted to remix, when approaching such an iconic track as ‘Plastic Dreams’, she applied her trademark tough yet melodic sound, emphasising the jazzy bass notes and famous organ synthesiser refrain, to deliver a fresh and vibrant reworking.

    On her remix, Nicole Moudaber said: “I didn’t want to lose the essence of this ground-breaking track. I kept the balance between house and techno and added a little touch of jazz. I was in New York when I first heard it; I was dancing, I was flying, I was connecting with people, I was making memories. I believe I gave it justice, I certainly gave it a lot of space and respect of its original identity.” 

    ‘Plastic Dreams’ will be available as a Limited-Edition vinyl, produced to go toward part of a highly collectable and beautifully packaged 6 release box-set (6th release dropping at Christmas).

    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 early years.

    This record took a while to be finished but we're glad to finally release this beautiful EP from Matthew. The title track ‚Heimreise‘ has already been around a few years ago but never got to be released officially due to the vocal sample. After speaking to Matthew he sent us the track and we used it in our Cercle set last year which gave the track a second life and lots of people were asking for an official release. After lengthy negotiations the sample could be cleared and licensed and we finally finished the EP. We worked on a remix for ‚Heimreise' what turned out to be quite a challenge but after all we could wrap it up right before deadline and the whole record was ultimately done and set to release.

    These two originals need no big introduction or explanation. ‚Heimreise' and 'Random Dub Fix' are wonderful displays of Matthews Dekay’s ability to create such hypnotic grooves that almost put you in a state of meditation. We still have so much fun playing these out that we really think this is a timeless piece of music. Thank you all for the patience, we’re happy that ‚Heimreise' found its forever home with Siamese.

    Fallout ‘The Morning After’, Produced by Lenny Dee and Tommy Musto, was originally released in 1987 on the legendary Fourth Floor Records. Originally recorded as a 17 minute opus, the track was edited into different versions; the Sunrise Mix and The Aftermath. The names Fallout and The Morning After were Tommy and Lenny’s personal references to a private after hours club called the RoofTop on the 23rd floor of a building in New York where they played, named as a nod to the after effects of the late nights and early mornings of these parties. ‘The Morning After’ crossed many genres of dance music, and was notoriously adopted by Grooverider and Fabio who championed it at Rage, their legendary Thursday night party in London. Remastered for this re-issue, and also tastefully remix by nu disco producer of the moment, Purple Disco Machine, a new lease of life awaits for this genuine classic which has truly stood the test of time.
