DIMENSIONS RECORDINGS

Dimensions Recordings' fifth release sees the label step into the world of the long player with Istanbul native, KEREM AKDAG's self-titled debut album.

Kerem has already been winning fans of the ilk of Gilles Peterson through his previous output of dusty house and tripped out beats in the last few years, and of course via his Getdownsoclose offering on Dimensions' debut release. His debut album however, sees Kerem deliver a mature piece of work, bright and timeless, equally effective in the club as it is at home and brimming with ideas, hooks and must have songs.

Across eight tracks Kerem demonstrates a breadth of skills that most artists would work a lifetime to achieve. From the stepping beats of When I Think Of You to his subtle vocal layers on Isolated and from the woozy beach vibes of Sultan to the squelching, rasping synths of Unite it's clear that there's very little that's outside of Kerem's arsenal. The album rounds out fittingly with Drums Please, which perfectly displays Kerem's jazz tendencies, a slow grooving track whose crescendo of stabs and drums create a song that's more powerful than its parts.

Kerem Akdag's debut album clearly sets out the stall for a man who has a lot to say and has the capability to say it loud! LISTEN UP!

New York's Marcos Cabral steps up for his first full release on Dimensions Recordings, with the "Nature Walk EP". Following on from his epic Prochainement masterpiece on Dimensions 002, the EP provides a glimpse into the mind of a well-established and hugely respected artist. "Nature Walk" is a broad EP that demonstrates just why Marcos's records have been finding their way into a multitude of DJs' bags for the last fifteen years.
From his work with Jacques Renault as Runaway, and his coveted Hamilton Dance Records output to his more recent deeper and darker leanings for leading labels such as Clone, L.I.E.S. and Mule Musiq, Marcos has quietly and studiously worked at developing an impressive catalogue which most folks who have brushed with house and techno will have heard…whether they know it or not. The EP provides a snapshot of some of the tastes and styles that Marcos has experimented with over the years, the rolling, energetic and optimistic sounding, not quite house, not quite techno of "Wishful" gives way to the brooding, dub techno of title track, "Nature Walk".
"Cape Cod" sees Marcos in classic house mode with a cut that could easily have dropped on NYC's Nu Groove Records, whereas "Rice A Roni" is a no nonsense nugget of twisted, grinding, acid. The EP rounds off with "Let's See How The Light Goes Through It", a spacey hypnotic workout for the late hours and a fitting end to a stand out EP from the self proclaimed, Hardest Working Man!

Matt says: The Dimensions series continues in earnest with Marcus Cabral the latest producer to drop some heat.
