Review: SORN002 welcomes another experimental beat maker tot he fold. Asan is likely from another planet. His take on techno is like no other. Expect wild drum patterns, freaky synths and alien grooves. Synth Lord Steve Moore strips things back in a way only he can and creates an arpeggiated synth journey which you'd never tire of, even if it was 45 minutes long!
Review: DJ Octopus begins 2015 as he finished 2014, with a typically forthright selection of late night jams that join the dots between vintage deep house, acid, European techno and the analogue style jack tracks of Willie Burns and the L.I.E.S crew. There's a particularly day-glow feel about deep house opener "Untitled", which features looped organ riffs and energy-packed drum machine rhythms. "The Player" switches things up nicely thanks to some brilliant, cut-up slap bass antics, while "Ghost Antics" sounds like the sort of early British acid track that was found lying around on a dusty DAT. Finally, "Purple Pills" invited you to drop illicit refreshments and lose yourself in a brightly coloured fusion of rave chords, bounding beats and clandestine textures.
Review: We are proud to present 2 Bit Crew, these guys are supported everywhere, and by everyone! Simple, heavy and raw house music! Strictly limited vinyl only release. Pressed in clear vinyl, 300 copies worldwide.
Review: Next release on vinyl only label Hands Off, is Four Walls . We just love his deep sounds, and we can't wait to present this fantastic ep for all of you! Four Walls did successful releases on Traxx Underground and Kolour LTD to name a few. The release he did with Funky Jaws on Kolour LTD went to the top on the vinyl sales chart, and was supported by everyone. This is serious deep underground House music! As always, limited press worldwide.
Review: While the Must Have label have been off the radar for a little while, we knew that this was simply because Jay Simon - the label head - was looking for another stunner to release, and he's done us proud with this new 12" from the fledgling - but utterly talented - Renato P. Ranging from soulful, misty-eyed deep house to pseudo electronic funk, this Untitled EP fits right in with the sound of now - a gorgeous blend of ambient-laden house and dance music with subtle traces of Balearica. "Change The Mood", a slow-paced hip-hop kinda cut, is actually our favourite and it fully represents Renato P as a beat-maker. Gritty beats, sexy melodies, and good vibes.
Review: Since emerging on L.I.E.S. last year with the superb 4 Club Use Only EP, Delroy Edwards' exploration of the deeper strains of ghetto house has made him one of the label's most popular members. This Untitled 12" sees Edwards inaugurate his new LA Club Resource label with two no frills tracks for darkened basements; the A-side sees a basic but addictive bassline snaking its way around tough but limber rhythms, while the B-side track sees a flanged bassline shifting uneasily underneath driving percussion in classic Robert Armani style. Don't sleep...
