Franc Spangler - Forever And A Day Franc Spangler Forever And A Day Delusions Of Grandeur 011 12inch € 8.99 buy
Two variations on Forever And A Day with the original providing a full length arrangement loaded with deep pads, fizzing synth lines and Francʼs trademark disco inspired drums. Forever And A Dub runs with a similar vibe whilst opting for a more stripped back and rolling vibe. Still a very deep and musical track but with some space for the drums and squarewave bassline to work their magic. The arrangement subtly builds with layering synths providing the dynamics and interest. Flip over for Open Eyes which sees Franc drop the BPMʼs for a loping, looping, sun-soaked epic purpose built for vibe augmentation of your next BBQ gig.

Jam City - Ecstacy Refix Jam City Ecstacy Refix Night Slugs WL04 12inch € 8.49 buy
Night Slugs announce the latest installment in their white label series – the much-anticipated debut 12” of London producer Jam City. On the A side, the psychedelic grime interplorer ”Ecstasy Refix” glows with warmth at its analog core. A jubilant tribute to the art of the grime refix, the track simultaneously recalls two disparate by-gone eras, to devastating effect. On the B side, Night Slugs favourite ”Let Me Bang Refix” drowns a gutter house classic in sheer beams of searing fluorescent synth. Jam City borrows a vintage Wiley meme on closing track ”Shut The Lights Off (Devil Mix)”, all but void of a drum kit it hangs in suspension, awash in sublime synths. This EP is available only on limited vinyl. Double check Let Me Bang!

These are industrial-size riddims for worldwide dancefloor demolition!

Party gets things moving with DL’s most organic production to date, resonating in your brain like the jaded memory of an uncomfortable lap dance from an impromptu trip to the future. Flip the wax for the warm fuzzy minimal garage vibes of Alpafun.. the track that goes a step further and adds some jazzy vibes to it.

    Meet Desto. We found him wandering the streets of Helsinki, eating canned tuna and drinking the water from a tin of hot dogs, desperately clutching armfuls of sticky future garage. Starting off in spacey 2step rhythms, falling over bassline, and breaking down into an euphoric 8 bit cascade, the epic “Disappearing Reappearing Ink” finally reaches wax after being in the boxes of pretty much everybody all year. On the flip, “Broken Memory” was given its first exclusive airing by Oneman on Radio 1 to much acclaim, and takes more of a straight up approach, and retains all of the fluid C64 chiptune beauty.
