    The Chemical Brothers, Jamie Jones, Pete Tong, Groove Armada, DJ Harvey, Maya Jane Coles and many more join forces to raise money for NHS Charities Together with the CARE4LIFE compilation.

    “This is a really lovely way to help raise much needed funds for support now and during the recovery from COVID-19. The funds will help support NHS staff, volunteers and patients affected by the pandemic. We hope you can support this brilliant project and thanks to everyone that already has.” (Ellie Orton, Chief Executive, NHS Charities Together)

    An unprecedented array of electronic music’s finest artists have come together to create the 45 track compilation of exclusive music, donated 100% for free with all proceeds going to official fundraising partner, NHS Charities Together (registered charity no.1186569). NHS Charities Together is currently working to provide, in their next round of funding, additional support they feel is most urgently needed by NHS staff, volunteers and patients in their area, with a particular focus on support for people who are disproportionately affected by the Covid crisis, such as patients and staff from the BAME communities and other groups including those living with disabilities.

    “Through the challenges of the Covid19 pandemic we have all developed a new understanding and awareness about the role our frontline health professionals undertake, and as a nation we are all united in our appreciation of the incredible work they have delivered in the face of much adversity and pressure in the last couple of months. In the continued spirit of people coming together in this time of need, the CARE4LIFE project hopes that this amazing collection of music can contribute to easing that pressure by giving some much needed support to these frontline workers from our fellow artists and friends in the music industry and its surrounding community.” (CARE4LIFE, May 2020)

    CARE4LIFE features new, exclusive and unheard music from the vaults, hard drives and archives of UK artists as diverse as Jamie Jones, Nathan Fake, Groove Armada, Joe Goddard and Pete Tong alongside tracks from Radio Slave, DJ Harvey, Matthew Herbert, Crooked Man, Mason Maynard, Daniel Avery and many more. CARE4LIFE is a truly varied and diverse listening experience that not only mirrors the collective talents involved, it wholeheartedly celebrates the openness and love that the NHS has shown us all at some stage throughout most of our lives here in Britain and beyond.

    “The light of love and positivity has been brighter than ever during this time. It would be preferable to live in a world where institutions like the NHS aren’t considered charities kept afloat by the caring classes but, today, it’s nice to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with everyone doing what they can. The sharing of music feels more powerful now than ever.” (Daniel Avery)

    CARE4LIFE compilation drops on 12th June 2020.

    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 and set of major interviews with David Mancuso of the New York City Loft, Lawrence started to host Loft-style Lucky Cloud Sound System parties with David and friends in London in June 2003. In February 2004 he published the first of three published three pioneering histories that have excavated and championed the previously overlooked foundations of contemporary party culture: Love Saves the Day: A History of American Dance Music (1970-79), Hold on to Your Dreams: Arthur Russell and the Downtown Music Scene (1973-92), and Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor (1980-83). Since 2018 Lawrence has hosted and DJed at the community audiophile party "All Our Friends. Paper Magazine describes him as the “reigning authority on the history of dance music in New York”.

    With knowledge to share, and a readership as well as a dance floor to feed, Lawrence released Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor as the debut imprint on Reappearing Records. A year in the making, a compilation featuring rare and iconic tracks that appear in his much-loved and heavily-thumbed classic Love Saves the Day amounts to the follow-up. The collection features several tracks selected regularly by Mancuso, the party host who exerted a prophetic and unparalleled influence on New York City party culture, as charted by Lawrence. It also includes choice picks from groundbreaking DJs such as Michael Cappello, Steve D’Acquisto, Francis Grasso, Richie Kaczor, Larry Levan and Nicky Siano, whose expressive contributions are faithfully recorded in Love Saves the Day. The compilation traces how disco grew out of the record collections and intuitive sensibility of these and other DJs, offering a unique survey of the era’s expansive sonic palette.

    2. AA. Falling Deep In Love (Joey Negro 7” Disco Blend)

    Glitterbox are proud to announce the second single from Horse Meat Disco and founding member of Sister Sledge, Kathy Sledge. An apt follow-up to the stunning disco hit ‘Falling Deep In Love’, ‘Jump Into The Light’ embodies the same uplifting qualities and signature strutting style. Now, both these charming disco numbers will be available on a special 7” package. With both tracks co-produced by Classic Music Company boss Luke Solomon, who worked alongside Chris Penny and JKriv on ‘Jump Into The Light’, the nightlife champions display their expertise of dancefloor dynamics across the package, an exciting preview of things to come on their forthcoming LP later this year. Opening the release is ‘Jump Into The Light’, with its gloriously funky bass, rich instrumentation and perfectly timed hooks, the production forms a perfect backdrop to Kathy’s unmistakable vocal. Joey Negro’s edit of ‘Falling Deep In Love’ follows, a record that has enchanted Glitterbox dancefloors since its release. With subtle nods to disco greats like CHIC, this is another red hot delivery from the Horse Meat Disco camp.

    3. B1. Piu Mosso
    4. B2. Sergio Ramos (w/ Thomass Jackson)

    Theus Mago serves up a hypnotising triplet of tracks on the ‘Apache Nights’ EP for Dave Harvey’s Futureboogie, each cut brimming with psychedelic tendencies and an assured chugging pace, and British stalwarts, Chicken Lips, are on hand with a tantalising remix.

    Hailing from Mexico, Theus Mago may also be familiar to many as the man behind Bufi, and across both aliases, has released singles and albums for the likes of Electrique Music, Turbo, Roam Recordings, and his own Duro imprint.

    ‘Apache Nights’ is built upon an irresistible booming dudwise b-line and tight and lively rhythm section, as esoteric melodies and trippy samples & tones pan across the sound board. British duo, Chicken Lips, have admirably served many year’s service in the alt.disco genre, and alongside their ground- breaking productions on Kingsize and Azuli, are probably more renowned for the raft of remixes turned in over the years for everyone from Newcleus to Simian Mobile Disco, Ladyhawke to Tiga, Ennio Morricone to Soul Mekanik. For their ‘Chicken Lips Malfunction’ of ‘Apache Nights’, we’re slapped around the chops with a gargantuan nine-minute night ride! ‘Piu Mosso’ jumps on board the magic carpet for a transcendental journey, whilst ‘Sergio Ramos’ has Theus teaming up with Thomass Jackson (Gomma/Calypso Records) for a raw and minimal workout, brain scrambling
    sonics and a contagious groove that closes this exceptional release.

    Bruise is the brand new musical project of Christian Campbell (Sona Vabos) and Darren House aka Diesel (Xpress-2, Ballistic Brothers). Born out of a shared love of the Motor City and all things deep, dusty and electronic, Bruise aims to present a broad palette of stirring electronic soul.

    Under his Sona Vabos alias, Christian has released House, Dub and Techno on labels including DFA, Mad Decent and Southern Fried Records, and has remixed artists including Todd Terry, The Black Ghosts, Chicken Lips, and The 2 Bears. His music has been supported by Radio 1 (Annie Mac, B-Traits, Diplo and Monki) and DJ’s such as Kerri Chandler, Sinden, Eats Everything, Shadow Child, and many more.

    Diesel, together with Rocky and Ashley Beedle, formed House music titans ‘X-press 2’ in the early 90s and rose to underground prominence through classic tracks such as ‘Muzik Express’, ‘London Xpress’ and ‘Smoke Machine’ (Junior Boys Own & Skint Records). Gaining plaudits on the club scene with their multi-decked DJ sets and performing everywhere from Ibiza to Brazil and Japan to New York, X-Press 2 shot to fame with their Ivor Novello award winning single ‘Lazy’. Featuring vocals by David Byrne (Talking Heads) the single reached No 2 in the UK singles chart.

    Diesel is also a founding member of the jazz influenced electronic band the ‘Ballistic Brothers’ and as a solo artist ‘Yellow Sox’ on Nuphonic Records. Diesel also presents an irregular show on know-wave.com as well as running legendary re-edit label Moton Records Inc. He can also be found playing DJ sets at Spiritland and ‘We Are The Sunset’ parties as well as running his own parties under the name Heavy Disco.

    3. B1. Need You
    4. B2. Need You (Happa Remix)

    Having earned BBC Radio 6 play from Gilles Peterson for last year’s track ‘Vortex’ , Japanese duo
    Ohnesty today announce their next release, ‘Movin’ On’ EP, out on 22nd May on Highball. The
    project unites two influential talents from Fukuoka’s burgeoning underground scene: BRISA, the
    adventurous and eclectic producer/DJ who spans everything from nu-jazz to acid house, and shigge,
    founder of the Yesterday Once More label.
     
    The EP makes an immediate statement of intent with the title track. Underpinned by a lurching,
    mechanised groove, it swings unexpectedly into a stuttering, pitch-shifted vocal cut alongside insistent
    hi-hats and the kind of soulful female vocal sample that’s a hallmark of deep house. The track demonstrates Ohnesty’s unique style. On one hand, they’re constantly pushing an audacious sense
    of creativity into a progressive-focused track. Yet at the same time, they never lose sight of the
    importance of making it sound both engrossing and energising.
     
    Its second track ‘K&T’ focuses those traits in a completely different direction, blending elements acid
    jazz, late ‘70s disco and French Touch into their own vision. And finally ‘Need You’ echoes yacht rock
    and ‘80s movie scores with sweet synths and the booming gated reverb drum sounds.
     
    The ‘Movin’ On’ EP is completed by a remix of ‘Need You’ by British producer Happa . One of the
    youngest artists to have ever DJed at Berghain, Happa’s production talents have also been called on
    by the likes of David Byrne, FKA Twigs and Trim.
     
    Ohnesty released their debut EP ‘Time To Be Honest’ last September on Yesterday Once More. It
    was followed by an accompanying remix package , which included intreprations from the likes of
    Metome and Daijo Kaisei.
     
    The ‘Movin’ On’ EP is the second release from the new London-based Highball Records. Aiming to
    highlight essential, forward-thinking new music from Japan, the label debuted in March with
    Foodman’s ‘Dokutsu’ EP.

    Enzo Siragusa and FUSE launch new label LOCUS this June, with the debut EP coming via hotly tipped talent KOKO.

    Having recently unveiled a new-look aesthetic for his long-standing and highly influential FUSE imprint, Enzo Siragusa and the FUSE team will now turn their attention to fresh project and brand-new label - LOCUS - with the definition of the label’s namesake matching their ambition to create a new and refreshing home for exclusive underground electronic music whilst delivering high quality parties, just as FUSE has done so over the past 12 years. With an ethos of exploring all shades of house music with the dancefloor at the forefront of its thinking, LOCUS looks set to house the very best in four-to-the-floor club music from both established talents and rising stars alike, with the first EP on the label arriving this summer courtesy of Infuse regular and ever-impressing Italian DJ and producer, KOKO.

    Opening with the infectious ‘Chantal’ alongside Brooklyn-based vocalist Quelle Rox, the Italian’s penchant for rich and dynamic soundscapes from across the house sphere quickly becomes apparent as he fuses resonant synths and refined drum licks beneath infectious vocals for a sun-kissed opener. Next, ‘Your Ass, My Camel Blue’ welcomes fluid electric piano lines and icy hats atop of a snaking bassline, before journeying into the luscious chords, sultry rhythms and resonant sax-riffs of ‘Love in Plexiglass’. Lastup, final cut ‘Amore Ante Hominem Nascitur’ closes things out via a medley of hypnotic leads, dubby chords and shuffling percussion – shaping up a notable debut offering for LOCUS and a stellar first look into an imprint that looks set to become a new favourite for many in the months ahead.

He’s like that, better than most, more secretive than all. This EP shows of his housier side. Super classy groovers for never-ending dance floors. Im beyond proud and happy that I get to share Bobby and his music properly with the world.”

    Spanish artist Cuartero returns to Hot Creations this June with his infectious grooves to deliver the fiery two-tracker What Luv, marking his fourth release on the revered imprint.

    Title track What Luv is built for the peak-time dancefloor. Familiar vocal stabs compliment the intricate percussion and underlying emotive chords that meld into a frenzied breakdown. On the flip, Open Ended swings and bounces with intermittent blips and faint vocal whispers. A trippy, minimal number to roll you into the early hours.

    Sanity boss Cuartero began producing at the age of fifteen and shot onto the world stage in 2012, DJing over five continents and releasing on labels such as Desolat, Moon Harbour, Saved, Circus and Hot Creations. In 2015 he was named Best Newcomer DJ at the DJ Awards and in 2017 he won Best Tech House Artist and Artist Of The Year at the Vicious Music Awards.

    Man O To from the elusive producer NU has clocked up over two and a half million plays on youtube since its inclusion on Acid Pauli’s Get Lost Compilation in 2012. Now finally set to be released as a single on Crosstown Rebels, with Remix treatment coming from Parisian producer Pépé Bradock and Be Svendsen.

    A nomad of modern times, NU has travelled the continents with his diverse music to unearth his imitable style. Represented heavily in Man O To, where instruments amalgamate with electronic production to become solid rhythms. An extra spark come from its lyrics, outtakes from an old Persian poem from the well known poet Rumi, who speaks of true happiness in love here performed by Ghazal Shakeri from an original recording made by renowned French composer Armand Amar.

    Julien Auger aka Pépé Bradock is a widely respected producer best known for his anthemic releases on French label Kif Recordings which are still sampled heavily to this day. As a DJ, he has spun in almost every major club in the world and is known for his versatile, and mesmerising style. Bradock conjures a trippy remix of Man O To and fitting ode to the original.

    Be Svendsen aka Lasse Bruhn Svendsen broke through into the international scene in 2014 with a series of productions and enchanting live performances at some of the most avant garde places to play on the earth, such as BOOM festival, Fusion, Burning Man, Symbiosis, Rainbow Serpent and AfrikaBurn. “‘Man O To’ is a track that has touched the hearts of many, including my own,’ Svendsen explained. ‘Being asked to add a new chapter to its story is both an honor and my greatest challenge to date.”

    German artist Chontane joins Rekids Special Projects with a twisted four-track release entitled ‘Healing EP’.

    Over the last five years the Berlin-based DJ has played many of the capital’s best clubs, including Griessmuehle, ://about blank, Suicide Club, Arena Club, and OHM. However, the last two years have seen Chontane breakthrough as a producer having dropped his debut release on THEM Recordings, followed by a collaboration alongside WERK’s co-founder J. Manuel on the newly launched Magic Power imprint. He now joins Rekids Special Projects succeeding appearances from P.Leone, Shinedoe, Jon Hester, and label boss Radio Slave himself.

    Opening the release, ‘Nam’ is built on an intricate rhythm and indistinguishable earworm vocal whilst a variety of tantalising elements ebb and flow from the mix. ‘Leto’ is then a dark and ominous number with an evil vox and delayed effects, before moving onto a percussive and synth-driven uplifting cut entitled ‘Exam’. Finally, ‘Gora’ concludes the release with its syncopated drums, purring bassline and soaring pads.

    1. A. Feel
    2. B. Feel (DJ Seinfeld Remix)

    Josh Wink joins Ellum Audio for a stellar new single backed with a remix from DJ Seinfeld.

    Josh Wink needs little introduction to fans, or even occasional listeners to dance music. The American DJ and producer has been one of the most enduring figures in the scene with a catalogue of music on labels like R&S, Strictly Rhythm, Nervous, Pokerflat, MNus and of course his own long standing Ovum Recordings imprint. As a DJ, he has travelled the globe since the mid-nineties, headlining festivals and clubs wherever he goes. What he has never done in his almost 30-year career is ever lose touch with the roots of underground dance music, something he demonstrates once again here with a standout new single for Maceo Plex’s label.

    As Josh says, “Eric and I have known each other since the 90’s, when I would come to Dj in Houston Texas, and now so many years later, I’m excited to have my music released on his mighty Ellum imprint, including a great remix from Dj Sienfield”.

    ‘Feel’ is classic Josh Wink, near eight minutes of spacey, hypnotic dancefloor wonderment fuelled by syncopated percussion and arpeggiated bass which builds the tension before a spacious drop and meditative, spoken word vocal take the reins. Timeless and heartfelt this is a gem from the Philadelphia legend.

    Remix duties fall to Sweden’s DJ Seinfeld, the lo-fi house pioneer and Young Ethics label boss who chops things up with a warped bassline, wonky FX and dancing synth lines to bring a brilliant alternative to the table.

    4. B2. Take Me Higher (Original 12 Inch Version)

    Every home should have this record from the 2 of the originators of deep House! Virgo 4 were kicking out the most melodic, fathoms deep, complex emotional machine music before anyone else (them & Larry obviously!) had caught up with them & the "Do You Know Who Are?" EP from 1989 is as flawless as it gets, often imitated over the years but never, ever bettered!

    Every single track on this slab of wax is a classic! Virgo manage to reach right inside & take us somewhere on every cut while maintaining an otherworldly sense of melody & rhythm, some of the playing on this record is incredible & so accomplished, "In A Vision" for example still sounds like it's beaming right at us from the future while "Take Me Higher" carries it's stately, Reggae-like vibe along smoothly while retaining enough bounce to keep the floor locked in.

    Basically, "Do You Know Who Are?" is an almost perfect record. You need it. It's the truth.

    Fully re-mastered, re-pressed & re-released for 2015 in it's original format with the permission & participation of all rights holders with all original Trax label artwork intact.

    Vibert’s previous album projects for Hypercolour, both as Kerrier District, and under his own name, have always excelled, not to mention his groundbreaking and brain scrambling long players for Warp, Rephlex, Rising High Records, Planet Mu and Ninja Tune.

    Vibert revives his Amen Andrews moniker after over a decade lying dormant. Squarely aiming the sound at the ‘Amen break’, ‘Luke Vibert presents Amen Andrews’ brings together 14 slabs of raucous breakbeat bangers, riddled with cool as fuck samples and bass bin shattering sub!

    1. A1 Outer Limits
    2. A2 My Mood (Rick's Cosmic Mix Edit)
    3. B1 In The Beginning
    4. B2 Holding On

    Chicago, 1991. The House Jam Records go from strength to strength, having already released a slew of influential and classic records from 1987 onwards, the duo of Larry Thompson and Rick Lenoir are making their impression felt on the dance music scene not only in their own city, but on a worldwide scale. Enter Tikkle, another undercover pseudonym used by the pair for their own special brand of deep House tracks.

    "Outer Limits" was the first release using this name and is an essential EP of midwestern machine grooves. The tracks have that rough, basement vibe with a healthy dose of deep, melodic qualities thrown in, the track "Outer Limits" for example, has a sophisticated almost Jazz like vibe that wouldn't sound out of place on an early UR release! The second track on the EP "In The Beginning..." is a driving cut based around Mach's legendary "On & On" (often cited as one of the "first" House tracks!) with Thompson and Lenoir adding some dope keys, strings and extra drum machines all with that trademark LNR swing. "Holding On" is a stripped back, percussion led, heads down kinda jam... the kind of track to make dance-floors sweat, solid stuff indeed!

    The whole EP has been reissued as it was originally released in 1991, with all original House Jam label artwork intact. For this special 2016 pressing Rick Lenoir dug in his vault of reel to reel tapes and excavated a long lost Tikkle track that has never been released..... until now - "My Mood (Rick's Cosmic Mix Edit)" is the closing track of the EP and is a fresh, 24 year old acid track with ocean deep pads - What a discovery, and one that will undoubtedly excite House heads! This track is exclusive to this repress! All audio has been lifted from Rick Lenoir's private collection of reel to reel tapes from his basement and remastered accordingly. This reissue has been realised with the full involvement of Thompson & Lenoir and is 100% legit!
