Larry Heard  - Missing You Larry Heard Missing You Alleviated 2215 12inch € 8.49 buy
One of the best house tracks in the last 10 years, and for sure one of the few, if not the only one, that can make a guy cry! Original, Instrumental and Jazz Cafe mix all on 1 high quality remastered 12. Essential!!

Terrence Dixon - Room 310 Terrence Dixon Room 310 Meakusma 003 12inch € 7.99 buy
One of the rare new Terrence Dixon releases… this time on the nice Meakusma. The two original tracks are two deep space jams with and from a Detroit mindset, the remixes on the flipside by Upperground Orchestra take the ‘Room 310’ track into deep jazz territory. The original ‘Room 310′ has one filtered and repetitive synth melody at its core, Dixon’s own voice marking a conflict between the reality of everyday life and the expanded reality of what he sees in the sky. Who is That’ explores the same territory. Equally repetitive as we know of Mr Dixon, and all in his own special way! The remixes and original versions are ontinually changing and evolving. The remix features off-key synth stabs on the Polysix, double-bass played by Seggi and a techno-ish vibraphone played by Pasquale Mirra. Tommaso Cappellato’s gentle background drumming flows over the TR808. All this conjures up a 70’s jazz feel that fits Dixon’s albeit jazzy Detroit wanderings like a glove. Seemingly organic, the whole atmosphere in this jazz rework is equally cosmic and ‘far out’ as in the original tracks. Cosmic insanity! Very much recommended!!

Steve Summers - Lucid Fingers Ep. Steve Summers Lucid Fingers Ep. Echovolt records 02 12inch € 8.99 buy
Steve Summers is back with his third ep, this time around for Greece’s Echovolt label. Summer’s continues to play with his main inspirations, the energy and grit of Hardy tape edits, melodies of Larry Heard, and deep bass tones of William S,. This four track ep manages to capture a feeling of experimentation and authenticity thats often missing in modern dance music. Strong 12 with timeless chicago house tracks! Very cool!

Bottin - Artifact 1 Bottin Artifact 1 Artifacts 12inch € 8.99 buy
Here a private pressing of 200 copies with some exciting works of Mr Bottin who is for sure one of the most active producers in the new disco umwelt this year! One super sweet and sexy track called Sage Oil. Disco just don’t get much hotter then this. Flip side had a track called Hot Lizard which is a rawer and more masculine piece as many of us might know from the typical italian italian police series and horror movie scores from the late 70’s and early 80’s. Recommended!

Great dubstep tracks that suits in a house set as well. The A side of this single comes in the shape of ‘Togetherness’ a brand new recording from Asusu that tears down the walls between techno, garage, house and dub. The flipside is an Asusu remix of Furesshu’s recent release for Project Squared, entitled ‘Horizons’. Here Asusu manages to beautifully gel an upbeat rhythm section with a deeply entrancing soundscape of off kilter Detroit inspired sythns.
