As IAMTHATIAM, Moss builds upon the sounds of his city’s rich musical legacy and directs it into an area that is his most definitely his own. His sound is expressive, experimental, emotional and powerful. Within this EP there are three deep, dark and dirty tracks that blend the boundaries between techno, house, industrial and ambient electronic music. FIT SOUND is a label that strives to push the experimental nature of dance music, and that is exactly what Moss has done right here.

The new Beautiful Swimmers! After their amazing Simmers groove another batch of funk injected tracks. On Big Coast the Swimmers bring various inlfuences, from the reggae chunk, Sleeping Bag trumpets, and percussive tidal wave of the title track, to the 808 kraut spiral of ”Touch Base”, a cut that sounds like Tangerine Dream doing some heavy breathing in Ghana. Great ep again!

Antonio Ceville - The Music Do It Antonio Ceville The Music Do It Dance Mania 009 12inch € 9.99 buy
Rare under-rated Dance Mania release from their early period.

    Deepchord presents Echospace - Liumin Deepchord presents Echospace Liumin Modern Love 064 2xCD € 16.99 buy
    Deepchord presents Echospace is the collaborative project of Rod Modell and Steve Hitchel now returning for their second full length album for the Modern Love label. The album unfurls with stretches of immersive techno and low end treatments compressed with a growling, unstable focus that’s n turn oppressive and soothing, re-creating the uniquely ambigous euphoria/narcosis that comes with extended sleep depravation. There may well be some connection to dub lurking deep in the foggy mists of these recordings – but ‘Liumin’ inhabits a far more opaque and unsettling terrain to anything you may have heard from both this project, or any of its many imitators.
