HERE SHE IS! BRASSICA’S MONSTROUS REMIX OF SATISFY!
The 2nd release on Lobster Theremin‘s white label, from the Australian producer Daze. The ’94 Original DAT Dub brings back that oldschool London sound and you could be forgotten if you thought it was a gem in 94′ you never heard. Verging between deep house and jungle it sits there with that Bukem vibe and you can’t quite pinpoint where it sits.
There is great subtly in this track, with deep emotive pads and raw yearning samples… makin it a perfect warmup or 6am track when the light begins to creep in!
Super excited to have Martin do a mix for us. We’ve been rinsing the wonderful slo-mo funked out disco edits on Rose Records for years and it’s great to have the label boss Martin do a mix for us! Check the endless killer releases here on their SC - His mix perfectly sums up their vibe, effortlessly classy and super fun!
Some words from Martin himself:
“For the mix i didn’t have a plan at all. I just played the first 2 or 3 tracks and then just went with vibe. guess it worked pretty good. I also included tracks of forthcoming releases from some of our rose friends. You can catch me playing straight disco but then i’ll go through some hiphop and house back to some caribbean-funk. If the feeling and mood is right everything is possible. Just not some boring 3 hour set of records who sounds the same!
I run with 4 friends (luvless, m.ono, lars & eva) leipzig based label rose records. our recent record is my artist ep called “modern love ep”. next will be a “rose & friends” record with featured tracks by people we like and love. and of course tracks by luvless, m.ono and myself.
My next project will be another collab with niccolo cupo, who runs the “panta rhei” label. a 7″ only imprint. i did a remix for him on the “ianus” 7″ vinyl. so it will be great to work together again.”
There you have it! Killer… Enjoy!
Next gigs will be: 25/07 ://aboublank (berlin)|27/07 datsche (magdeburg) and 08/08 midnight city (amsterdam)
Voiski has to be one of our stand-out artists of the year, consistently nailing it with every release. If you don’t know him check his boiler room HERE. We first got to know him through the absolutely huge “from the white to the Red” on LIES last year, which has been a staple in our sets since. This new one… again on LIES is a killer, 3 great tracks on the EP but this is my fav. Always a sucker for a broken beat, this one reminds me of the old stuff on Bunker but with a more trancy edge. LIES proving why it is up there with the best once again.
So that Caustic Window LP test pressing has surfaced finally and it’s sounding really really good. Some of my favourite AFX maybe.
James has been making music since he was little over 10 and has “over 100 hours” of unreleased music, and to have made his own software to compose with, including algorithmic processes that automatically generate beats and melodies; He also claims to experience synaesthesia, and that he is able to incorporate lucid dreaming into the process of making music – pretty evident from almost everything he’s made haha.
In an interview in The Guardian, AFX said: “I’m just some irritating, lying, ginger kid from Cornwall who should have been locked up in some youth detention centre. I just managed to escape and blag it into music.”
“I did it because the thing in techno you weren’t supposed to do was to be recognized and stuff. The sort of unwritten rule was that you can’t put your face on the sleeve. It has to be like a circuit board or something. Therefore I put my face on the sleeve. That’s why I originally did it. But then I got carried away.”
Here’s some of our favourites below… check the rest here
SQUIDGE IN THE FRIDGE
101 RAINBOWS (AMBIENT MIX)
Got an exclusive with the next release up on Aus from Youandewan,we already played the track FM Jam on our Rinse.FM show last week and this is the A2 on the record. Dusting off the 909 and M1 we get a proper laid back NYC house shuffle, subtle ghetto vocals and amazing etherial pads… Youandewan really doin’ it proper!
Killer EP be sure to check it, comes with an ace Andres remix too ;)
Late night business from the Berlin based duo, Pablo Mateo & S. Hoffmann- for their label LACK REC. Only 2 releases in so far and it’s shaping up to be a strong label. Islando is amazing, named after the long island ice tea, it’s a straight-up no frills hardware jam. They say “All you need to know: tr-909 + waldorf q = love!” and it’s true… magically deep and hypnotising. Grab it HERE
Andy was editor of DJ MAG Dubai (No he runs INFUSION) when I moved over (seems like a lifetime ago)… We didn’t have any records released and only a few mixes to our name, along with the blog but he kindly took the time to have a listen to what we had (after my boss gave him a heads up) and ended up giving me my first ever residency at his club night. This really got me back into djing properly (after slowing down a bit through uni) and producing music. It was at this time we made Darwin etc
Really pleased to say we’re still in touch and Andy kindly sent me over one of his first releases which is amazing. Super slo-mo sun kissed disco, perfect for the outdoors… will be spinning these at Garden fest for sure! You can pick them up here along with his other releases!
Huge one we have been nailing from Samuel Deep and the Slapfunk crew… big sample from Antonio’s locked on classic used really effectively. Keepin’ it true with their own unique style of UK bass and underground house, the Slapfunk boys rarely leave our bag!
