    Keysound Recordings Presents... Certified Connections

    Over a year since the foundation-laying “This Is How We Roll”, a cluster of the Keysound family members return with a 14 track compilation of exclusive new tracks. It's the 50th release on the label. The CD is shaped in an arc designed to reflect both the breadth and the flow of the music being made within the camp. Beginning with Logos’ beatless exercise in tension “Metropolis” it moves through dark percussive 130 bpm rollage from Parris, Dusk + Blackdown, Aphix, Caski and Etch. Grimey influences begin to emerge via Wen and the Sully remix of Balistiq Beats ft Riko, before an explosion of synths and colour from Murlo, DLVRY and E.m.m.a. engulf the scene. Finally the compilation curves back down into a more abstract plane with Facta, Epoch and emerging lyricist/producer Luke Benjamin. The title for the compilation was crowd-sourced from the producers themselves, kicking around different suggestions until something was borrowed from a cluster of LHF-inspired blog posts Blackdown had written. The title was “something representative of the things that link us but also separate us” went the reasoning. This spirit of how “Certified Connections” was selected seemingly reflects the strength of solidarity and the unity of purpose around these artists right now: working within a darker (but sometimes colourful), rolling (but sometimes arresting) and bassier (but not without subtleties) space. "Keysound is home for me, and listening through the compilation the doors are wide open to welcome edgy new talent to the family," said Wen. As well as contributing a track to “Certified Connections”, certain editions of the release will come with a special mixed version by one of the most exciting DJs from the camp and sometime Wen-collaborator, Parris, deploying his trademark blends and precision cuts.

        ESP / The Light Machine - Inc. Lexx Remix

        In his first outing since 2011's now classic 'The Orange Place', Test Pressing's Paul Byrne teams up with Sade's Andrew Hale for 'The Light Machine', a low slung, throbbing, acid led piece of gorgeousness that has been getting rave reviews from the Balearic mafia all over.

        For ESP Paul teams up with Yello's producer / engineer Ian Tregoning aka The Stranger for another intoxicating piece that recalls the best moments of The Art of Noise if they were still making music in 2014.

        A remix from Swiss DJ and perennial man of the moment Lexx rounds out the package perfectly.

        Golf Channel every time !

        Last year saw the emergence of London disco outfit Payfone. Their debut 12", titled "International Smark" became something of an underground hit with lovers of disco, electro and Balearic alike, sounding like a meeting between Metro Area, Abba and 80s video game sensation 'Outrun'. Now signed to Golf Channel, Payfone is back with a weighty boogie-inspired three track EP packed with muscle and modern pop sensibility. This second release comes co-mixed to perfection by In Flagranti's Sasa Crnobrnja. 

        The A-side cut "Paradise" features the dubbed out vocals of 21 year old Louis Howard Jones and New Orleans native Dayna Talley over a distinct synth drum arrangement that rallies both heads and feet to the dancefloor.

        Flip the record for two tracks that feature "International Smark"'s Swedish / Finnish vocalist Tigerlight. First the deeply funky and minimal "Mice Life" channels Patrick Adams over some strident drums and staccato guitar. Closing cut "Subconscient Lamentation", a lush and exotic cover version of the 1970's Black Devil Disco Club album finale, takes us out on a deeper, slower and altogether hazier vibe, as the spacious and vibrant synth work over a strutting bass line and bluesy trumpet serve as a bedrock for Tigerlight's haunting whispered vocal. 


        Farley Jackmaster Funk

        Funkin' With The Drums Again

        Doing it's thing since all the way back in '85, "Funkin' With The Drums Again" gets the 2014 remastered reissue treatment for those either too young, or too drug addled to remember it from the first time round. The EP sees the legendary producer and WBMX disc jockey Farley "Jackmaster" Funk turning in some colossal jack tracks, Chicago style. Each track is an essential DJ tool, perfect for heating the dancefloor to a thousand degrees fahrenheit. Inside these deep grooves you'll find Italo disco inspired bass-lines, skittering drum machines, eerie analog synthesizer melodies and of course, Farley's trademark percussive vocal stabs punctuating the mix. The record is a document from the initial first wave of Chicago House records and has that raw edge that so many contemporary producers are still inspired by 20+ years later. Essential club weaponry yo!



        Kim Ann Foxman

        It's All About You / Steal My Secrets

        Former Hercules & Love Affair chanteuse Kim Ann Foxman gets collaborative with London's Vinyl Factory to launch her own Firehouse imprint. Named after the former fire station in Brooklyn which Kim calls home, the label aims to celebrate the golden era of authentic house music. Kim gets it right from the off with the gliding beauty of "It's All About You", a sparkling and energetic peak time track which stops just short of frenzy. Kim builds layers of wistful loops and hooks around her own subtle, resampled vocals and grounds them with a hectic drum track reminiscent of Inner City. On B-side cut "Steal My Secrets" Kim marries the synthetic and organic as flute, panpipes and playful marimba duet with sawtooth lead lines and fluctuating pads. If you're a sucker for a little Nu Groove, then this one's for you.

            Song, By Toad Split 12" V3

              After recording the first two Song, By Toad Split 12”s in Edinburgh, Gordon from the Insider Festival collaborated on volume 3, choosing four bands from the Insider Festival bill, and recording songs with them in the main drawing room at Inshriach House (on whose grounds the festival is held) when they came up to play.

              Although the pressures of working around the festival's live schedule made it a tougher process than usual, the generosity and enthusiasm of the festival team made them feel instantly at home. The result is a Split 12” which has the same warm, slightly haphazard, homely feel as the rest of the series.

              It's rare that we get much drum and bass in these days, politely leaving the majority of it for Eastern Bloc; however this release was so strong we just had to get it in! Digital is an alias for a Rotterdam main player who you'll know from a string of record labels and releases, however we're keeping tight lipped for now. "Africa" is, to my knowledge, his first forays into the world of drum and bass. However this isn't your nonsensical jump-up nonsense, this is well executed soundsystem pressha that any discerning DJ should be able to utilize out int field. "Africa" has plenty of dub-wise inflections and rootsical sounds as its steppah-tinged rhythm marches on unrelenting. "Fire" hypes up the energy for a jungle-inspired bassline wobbler. Frenetic, skilled drum programming, massive subs - this baby has it all, and executed with a beautifully fine arrangement. "Logged in" is the most 'traditional' offering on show here, its amen breaks bursting off the wax with so much energy you'll need to increase the weight on your tone arm to keep the needle in the groove! Excellent stuff - more where this came from please!

                MF

                Edit Channel XXX - Bonus Mix CD Edition

                After introducing us to the smorgasbord of musical treats on the Mangiami menu last time out, Golf Channel's edit offshoot sneak us off to the restroom to powder our nose. As the company card makes light work of the columbian marching powder, we take a look round and see we're in good company. As well as the Sexy MF who brought us here (Mind Fair I would wager), we're joined by a new wave four piece and a raucous disco-not-disco troupe mad on punk-funk. A-side cut "Rio" sees the bastard sons of Pig Bag and Bow Wow Wow hammer the chizz and dive skinny-tied into the madness of the Muzic Box and Paradise Garage. It's jazz chords au go go as this percussive monster, laced with fractal sax licks, erupts into an avant-dance cousin of "Rock The Casbah" and "Magnificent Seven". Think Pig Bag or King Trigger. On the flip, Mind Fair play cupid and introduce us to an 80s obscurity in the form of Way Of The West's "Feel The Steel" and dub it out to the max with long instrumental breaks and wild tape delay. Deep, dark and endlessly groovy this is certain to fill the Balearic dancefloors over the winter months. If you've not passed out with giddy excitement just yet, then perhaps the mention of a free mix CD will drive you over the edge of ecstasy.

                                Nervous make it two in two for Wayne Gardiner, following last week's Classic Man reissue with this essential Track Masters release. Originally released way back in '92, the five tracks here offer the perfect balance of rough and smooth, as deep pads, jazzy keys and chopped vocals are underpinned by driving beats and tough percussion in that trademark Gadiner style. The EP features two mixes of killer A-Side "Come On, Do Anything", two mixes of the slamming B-Side cut "I Need You So Bad" and finally "The Basement Jam" which rounds things out in deep and dope fashion. This sought after collection of early house excellence regularly goes for £50 plus on the cogs, but doesn't sound anywhere near as deep and punchy as this pristine reissue. It's not gonna be around for long, so I'd suggest you bag one asap.
