JUST IN

Back in stock Cover of Rare, Raw And Ready by Raredub.
Following on from his atomic single release, "Phonk On The Dancefloor", Sofia’s Raredub now presents his highly anticipated full EP via Mutual Pleasure Records. "Rare, Raw and Ready" is a high-voltage introduction to the Bulgarian bass baron, a title that is fully justified with this latest venture of sound.

Raredub wastes no time in setting the pace for this project, as we’re thrown straight into the searing furnace with opening track "Bamba". Having been road-tested by the likes of Kettam, KiNK, Skin On Skin and Raredub himself, "Bamba", with its infectious vocals, gut-hurdling bassline and devious rave-stab melodies, is a carefully constructed weapon of sound, with proven devastating results.

We’re then brought to "Juicy Fruit", which sees both Raredub and Mutual Pleasure’s head-honcho Partiboi69 lock palms to create a deeply sensual, highly contagious dancefloor anthem that sees the producer masterfully blend hissing hi-hats, ghetto-house informed vocal, and a series of infectious rising chord patterns and melodies which, when combined, are certainly set to cause nothing but dancefloor destruction.

Since being played as the opening track to Partibo69 and DJ Heartstring’s stingzone set, "L.L.L" is a track which, with its mind-warping bassline,euphoria ladened vocals and pad-work, has enjoyed a growing sense of anticipation from listeners, eager for its arrival.

"Snappy Chulo" sees Raredub again use a series of piercing rave-stabs to drive his sound, which is partnered with a plethora of electronic experimentation and instrumentation, before the seismic bassline of "Break Of Dawn" see Raredub bring the walls and ceiling crumbling down; presenting a suitably fitting finale to this atomic attack on the senses.

"Rare, Raw and Ready" brings Raredub’s prowess for production to the fore, as the Bulgarian producer conducts wild electronic experiments, bending genres and sound into form, to create a versatile, highly contagious and highly atomic serving of sound.

File under house, breakbeat, techno and warehouse rave music. The Mental Groove Classic series returns with a treasure trove of rare and hard to find tracks plucked from the personal collection of label founder Olivier Ducret, a pivotal figure in Switzerland's acid house and rave-era party scene.

On Volumes Two and Three of the series - the first installment hit stores in 2017 - the Mental Groove and Musique Pour La Danse label founder takes us back to the turn of the '90s, a time he spent promoting parties in fields, squats, forests, warehouses and former factories in and around Geneva and behind the counter of a record shopof the same name. While others in Switzerland's emerging dance music scene gravitated towards US house and garage, Olivier and his crew opted for a bass, breaks and techno-focused sound inspired by regular trips to clubs, raves and record shops in the UK.

Drawing directly from his own record box and a memory bank full of snapshots of euphoric dancefloor moments, Mental Groove Classics volumes Two and Three sees Olivier reaching for cuts of near-mythical rarity, genuinely overlooked gems, and undeniably brilliant tracks that have left a long-lasting impression on the local raving landscape. It's an autobiographical audio document, historical archive and personal musical statement all rolled into one, inspired by a moment in time where musical boundaries were being redrawn in a wave of carefree optimism and freedom inspired new rave scenes across Europe and far beyond.

Erykah Badu

Honey (GU Remix)

Super limited vinyl edition of Glenn Underground's remix of Erykah Badu's neo-soul smash "Honey". Tweaking it out into a jazzy, soulful-house cut resplendent in the producer’s luscious licks and adding the soul queen's infectious vocal on top. It's a no brainer really and sure to satisfy even the hardest to please Saturday night reveler.

Limited copies - move quick! 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: I didn't really think I needed a house refix of Erykah Badu's "Solder", off 2008's "New Amerika Pt 1". But under Glenn Underground's persuasive potter's wheel the track is effortlessly moulded into the perfect deep house jam; with Badu's vocals flowing like liquid gold through the stems. Essential stuff!

Back in stock Cover of Stereo:type EP 3 by Risk Assessment.
Stereo:type is keeping busy with a number of releases already lined up from the young and auspicious label. It is UK artist Risk Assessment that has been behind the first couple and is again back in action here with number three. This one kicks off with a slightly deeper disco cut that has a seductive vocal and rousing chords then 'Dreamz' is a nice blissed out roller with magical melodies bringing the richness. 'Someone Like You' is denied by the voice of the one and only Barry White - his buttery baritone riding over loop and funky drums and bass and 'Power' then brings a touch of house to close out.

STAFF COMMENTS

Mine says: Risk Assessment follows up EP 1 and 2 with number 3 within less than 6 months and continues his signature style of pumping disco house on this 12" series on Stereo:type - as suitable for a sweaty basement as for your next pool party.

Back in stock Cover of Stereo:type EP 2 by Risk Assessment.
The fledgling Stereo:type label is back with a sizzling second release and it is the UK's Risk Assessment at the buttons. Once again here his sophomore vinyl outing is all about soul drenched and peak time disco cuts with plenty of passion and character. 'Welcome' has all the funky loops and neat keys you need to get you going, 'I Hear Music' is a real stomper with freaky guitar riffs and '5 O'Clock In The Morning' brings some big diva vocals and plenty of lush strings. Last of all is the steamy hot disco funker 'Disco Night' with its slick filter work and rich bass. Another delicious EP, then.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Nice to see an editor get frisky on the filters and loop cutter, injecting some urgency into these lesser known disco bits. Star studded glitter ball treats all the way from Risk Assessment...

Early UK hardcore gold from House Crew stalwarts Floyd Dyce and MC Juice.

The missing jewel in Dyce’s Production House crown, this sole FZ outing was released on one of a handful of short-lived Production House sub-labels that served as platforms for Dyce’s prodigious output, and can now take its rightful place alongside his other production and writing credits with the likes of Acen, The House Crew, Brothers Grimm, DMS and Baby D.

Despite recent speculation and curious confirmations of an association with the pivotal Production House from those close to the source, the identity of those behind this mysteriously initialled 1991 breakbeat hardcore banger has remained a closely guarded secret for over thirty years.  Despite not having a follow-up and not benefitting from the hype of big name credentials to justify inflated asking prices it has remained in high demand for over three decades as a constant in informed record bags and on discerning wantlists. It will come as little surprise to many then to find out that it is in fact the work of none other than House Crew stalwarts Floyd Dyce and MC Juice. 

Available once again on 12” black vinyl and licensed with the full-cooperation of Dyce himself it has been faithfully remastered from the original studio source material with the lacquer cut by Beau Thomas.

Stimulator Jones is a new addition to the Star Creature roster, and from the looks of this debut EP; seeks to inject a touch of classic deep house flavours into the mainly boogie-leaning label. "Night Walk" has all the hallmarks of a vintage Mr. Fingers number - walking wooden bass, gentle congas, enveloping strings and moody feels propelled by a mid tempo 4/4 drum pattern. "Precious" ups the swing and shuffle and feels like a lost Frankie Knuckles / Joe Smooth anthem - with a bassline that's gonna tickle the arse of any club goer and a gloriously emotive chorus - this is the one my people!!!

Flip and the NY / Chicago vibe continues with the acid box jam "Strive To Survive" - a bold statement but easily comparable to some of the best bits from Phuture, Marshall Jefferson, Larry Heard et all. Dazzling keys, heavenly strings, well molested 303, infectious jack beats - this baby's got it all. "Moon" concludes this essential 12" riding the NJ / NYC flavours - swung woodblocks and bumpety bass recalling the genius of Kerry Chandler or Todd Terry with a moody Rhodes giving it a suitably deep, beatdown fragrance.

Star Creature does house music - and sticks two fingers up to all the competition! Essential.

Junee (Fhunyue Gao and Zoé Sjollema) is an encounter between a violin, a theremin, two voices and two synthesizers. An intimate investigation into the formation of the duo, which mirrors the take-off into imaginary worlds, sometimes obscure, sometimes celestial. The point of friction between experimental and pop opens up in-between worlds of melodious stories, non-places and sonic squeaks. After several successful concert tours since 2021, the duo were keen to work on a first musical release bearing the name "Océan Oublié / Assordante" and containing seven songs of different lengths and stylistic colors for a total duration of 30-35 minutes. The album was recorded in Geneva by Augustin Sjollema and was developed on the compositional foundations already acquired, during residencies at SMEM (Swiss Museum Of Electronic Music) and Südpol Theater Luzern and is released on the Geneva-based label Stone Pixels.

"Océan Oublié / Assordante" will represent the first official release of the Junee musical project. The two-part title evokes the very source of the duo's thinking around the concept of duo. A project with two names, an interstice between two universes, a two-sided album: on one hand, "Océan Oublié" tends towards melancholic pop, and on the other, "Assordante" is more experimental and theatrical approach to the Junee sound. An ambitious and highly evocative listen. Recommended!
