Absolutely stunning electronic fire from Karamika on the mighty ESP institute. Taken from the forthcoming self titled album, which is packed fulla’ intense moody soundscapes and squiggly pulsing new age rhythms. Really enjoyed this track in particular…Check out more here.

Buzzin’ to have our friend Andy Buchan onboard! As you may know from previous posts Andy is an old friend from out in Dubai and showed us lots of support when we first started out on the blog, so it’s an honour to have him step up and do a mix many years on!
Expect a super eclectic mix of party bangers. Here’s a few words from Andy himself:
“It’s been a busy month as I’ve got 4 tracks out at the moment – a nu-disco track on Dear Deer’s latest compilation, and also an acid nu-disco roller on Dubai’s first dance music album Ma’ana, out on Bootleg Social. I’ve also got a tech-house track out on Beirut’s VL Records, and my homage to Orbital (‘U&Me’) out on KZ Records. I’m also bringing my club night Loaded back in August – funnily enough, Matt used to DJ with me in Dubai at my disco/house night, and designed the first Loaded artwork! Loaded is a proper open-minded and fun indie night, everything from Jamie xx to The Jam, Jurassic 5 to Julio Bashmore.
It’s essentially a 3 hour set condensed into 75 minutes, but there’s hopefully still a nice flow to it, with some crate digging tunes and some serious dancefloor damagers. There’s a definite acid theme bubbling away throughout. I wanted a spread of BPMs and mix some classics amongst some newer tracks, and one of mine in ‘Sunspots.’
I’ve got a deep, broken beat house track coming out on BoxLogic in the near future, and I’m also working on a collaboration with Thrill from LA, who’s a rising US house star – he’s done the vocals over a proper old skool rave tune that’s seriously cheesy and fun. I’m also re-building my Soundcloud after they took it down for my 3rd strike – all 350,000 plus plays and 80 tracks, ouch. Back up now here if you want to keep up to date.

The 25th release from the Uncanny Valley crew is here, and I can remember the first like it was yesterday. This is a great split EP with Lake People, Philipp Triebel and RJ. Absolutely love all the tracks on the EP, but chose this burner for the blog. Beautifully constructed and produced…evoking a space slo-mo atmosphere with slaying synths, shimmering pads and vocoder excellence. Can’t get enough of this.

Absolute disco classic right here… out on P&P back in 1977. One of my favourites and it’s great it has seen a resurgence in the last year or so thanks to a re-press, a record everyone needs to hear.

Broken acid roller from the forthcoming Fantastic Man EP, like a lost gem from Nu Groove… The flip is an absolute italo-acid monster too!
