SOME HOT TUB JAMZ IN YO FACE!!!!
Killer break track from the DJ HAUS mini-album Thug Houz Anthems Vol. 1 that was released earlier this year…heard this track in a Legowelt mix a while back and was a bit obsessed with it until I found out what it was, been goin’ down pretty well for us too…Hi-N-R-G!
Some amazing blissed out vibes from the Canadian duo, Graze. They’ve got a deep, moody sound quality, giving it that heads down feel, yet loads of swinging grooves, working out to be a smooth combination. Watch ‘em move to this…
Big belter edit of Mos Def’s Umi Says from Australia’s Francis Inferno Orchestra out on UNTZZ offshot BIG DOINT! We’ve been rinsing this recently, including on our HOT TUB SLAMZ mix! Check it (sadly already sold out)
ANNND to sweeten the deal here’s a mix from label hot shots Alex and Bradley aka “BIG DOINT”!
Up there with my favourite Claro Intelecto EPs, and just heard its gonna get a re-press at the start of 2014. This will keep everyone who missed out on the errr the 1st press… 2nd…and the 3rd press very happy. For me it combines the holy trinity of emotive sythns, roughed up TR808 and a blasting sleazy acid bassline. Huge love for this whole EP…‘Tone’ on the other side is a killer aswell.
Fantastic 2 hour exclusive mix from the Times Are Ruff record boys Jason Soesman, Pieter Ridder & Alex van der Velden! Their label, based in The Hague (the city famous for Bunker Records, Legowelt, and I-F0) has been putting out some of the finest disco infused house we’ve heard this year! Releasing prime Chicago and disco influenced house cuts on their vinyl only label, which all are hand-stamped and numbered to make each edition a true collectors item.
They say “As a DJ collective, Times Are Ruff is heavily influenced by the Windy City, taking inspiration from the past, but never sounding outdated. Focussing on long – preferably all night – DJ sets in which Times Are Ruff strives to set itself apart and tell a true musical story to the audience.”
And here’s a perfect example of that!

“I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”
TOMORROW YOU DON’T KNOW (check the final minute of this track!!)
One of my favourite more laid back Larry Heard tracks, amazing percussion and vocal in this one. Sleazed out… red lights, late nights… for disco only shit.
Beautiful, ethereal track from Four Tet’s new album, never ever knock anything with a 90s RNB sample! Without a doubt one of my fav tracks of his! Check it kiddda.
Wee viber’ back in 1996 out on Back to Bacis (Leeds massif) from the pioneer of microhouse – Matthew Herbert. Created just a few years before he declared he would stop using drum machines and synths opting to fully source all his own original samples and recordings, I think one of his most recent album was made solely from the noises of a pig.
