|Cos/Mes||DFG||ESP Institute||12inch||€ 8.99||buy|
|Stunning track which goes somewhere between cosmic house and deep intense Detroit techno such as Dulex or ERP. Track taken from their upcoming album, The duo, hailing from the Tokyo underground, combine beautifully spacial and droning arrangements with tropical vibes on DFG. On the B side we have a deep relaxing remix of album cut Heavenly Trax by Sombrero Galaxy’s own Jonny Nash, followed by an extended version of another album cut From Other Space.|
|Darkhouse Family ||Family Trees||Fat City 034||12inch||€ 8.99||buy|
|Debut 12 from Welsh production crew Darkhouse Family aka Don Leisure and Metabeats hailing from Cardiff & Barry.. Heavy synth-work, syrupy melodies, processed sample snippets with tough kicks and hard snares in a freeform collision make their debut EP a heavyweight production.. ”Stay Blazed” as featured on Producer No.2 delves straight in knee deep..sweet yet edgy, building an uplifting energy leading perfectly into the rude 808 bump of ”Number 43” with sirens and applause for the switch midway.. ”Mein Atari” is a dangerous, skunked out bomb of console-slop with Mr. Dibiase’s mix flipping the madnessas only he can. Finally, ”Mixed Grill” smooths things on a deep and spacey 80’s trip. Tip!|
|Dubbyman ||King Of Motown ||Cornuta sound 005||12inch||€ 8.99||buy|
|Leading spanish deephouse lables Deep Explorer and Cornuta continue to exchange the pleasantries: after the recent stunning 4 tracker by Cornuta boss – featuring new version of modern deephouse classics like ”Sleep Scott Heron”, Deep Explorer head honcho DUBBYMAN pays it back with the equally fantastic ”king of motown” featuring vocals snippets of motor city silkiest over a loose percussive beat with organ stabs and beautiful string backings. Cornuta don Hugo Giner – better known as W&P HGG – adds a marvelous version displaying a melodic sensibility close to vintage Larry Heard. ” the hard funkin 80’s electro boogie style ”funky orgy” closes the sizzling hot 12” in fine style.|
|Goldwill, Ed Davenport ||Sun Francisco, Lustre||Liebe Detail 033||12inch||€ 8.99||buy|
|Strong modern house tools. Especially the Goldwill track is a real summer anthem, where the Davenport track is a more tyical Liebe Detail Detroit inspired affair.|

expected in the following days!
|Steven Tang||The Verged Sessions||Aesthetic Audio 010||12inch||€ 8.99|
|The Verged Sessions represents the evolution of the Chicago/Detroit sound … full of lush orchestrated strings, synths and deep pads with a massive foundation of thumping TR-808 & 909 drums. Steven has previously unleashed quality deepness, for almost a decade on his own label, Emphasis Recordings.|
|Afrika Hitech||Hitecherous||Warp 298||2x12inch||€ 10.99|
|New 6 track EP from Mark Pritchard (Harmonic 313) and Steve Spacek. ‘How Does It Make U Feel’ pushes the sonic vapors of ‘Blen’ into a futuristic bass anthem, replete with bubbling 303 bass, sonar synths and Spacek’s commanding falsetto. Taking on the icy blueprint of Grime’s early, street-stalking strains and updating them with far more warmth and depth, ‘Said Speed’, ‘Lash Out’ and ‘Boingy’ are some of the most speaker-shredding tracks in recent memory.|
|Mala||Return II Space||DMZ LP 001||3x12inch||€ 29.99|
|Pressed on 180 gram vinyl and shrink wrapped within a full colour gatefold sleeve. One half of Digital Mystikz, Mala will release his first album Return II Space after a hiatus of one year or so. Well, we say album, the catalogue number is DMZLP001, but Mala real name Mark Lawrence is simply viewing this vinyl triple-pack as a chance to release some of the productions that have been highlights of his DJ sets. ”To me it’s just a triple pack really but I guess it is [a milestone]”! Highly recommended and with most DMZ releases it will be immediately sold out when it reaches the streets!|
|Vaccine||Ochre – Cascade Failure||Nonplus 007||12inch||€ 8.49|
|Next generation Dubstep on the sweet Nonplus label. Melodic tracks which fuse 90’s electronica (Funkstorung, Funckarma, EOG, Autechre) with more dubstep and grime rhythms and sounds.|
