DISCO HALAL

Disco Halal invite hotly tipped Japanese producer Yoshinori Hayashi to make his label debut here, and the main man more than delivers the goods, diving through a stylistic portal to land in an alternate dimension of experimental house oddness. The set opens with "Palanquin Bearing Monkey", a churning psychedelic slow burner assembled from blurry snatches of Japanese classical music, loose funk drumming and pitch bent piano tones. On the A2, "Stepping On Dewdrops" keeps it weird, working through haunted house idents, cascading Japanese jazz keys and a stuttering hip hop-style beat. If RZA ingested the whole Wu Tang stash tin then tripped that he was DJ Shadow, this would be his latest jam. Things stay chilly on the flip as "Pneuma" offers dubby percussion weirdness, aquatic rumblings and star kissed lead lines, while "Chember" materializes to give you the fright of your life. Avant, abstract and drenched in particularly potent ectoplasm, this is a phantasmagoric freak out for the most adventurous house heads.

Patrick says: If you've ever cast your eye/ears over our weirdshit section and longed for something stranger, then this is the record for you. Hypnotic, immersive and entirely disorienting, "Uncountable Set" is the strangest groove music I've heard in a long, long time.

Catching the slipstream of DH009 and giving any air traffic controllers out there a bit of a headache, the latest Disco Halal dance craft comes in hot and heavy, buzzing the tower like a methed up Maverick. Peer in the cockpit of this jet-fuelled floor-ripper and you'll find none other than Life And Death boss DJ Tennis, a man with both a plan and drum kit! Pushing everything into the red, the Italian DJ transforms two Simple Symmetry originals into weapons-grade speaker splitters, tailor made for marmalising the club. On the A-side, "Plane Goes East" rockets skywards with an explosive kick and gutteral bass sequence, heading for the stratosphere as drum kits tumble earthwards all around it. Retaining the Kraftwerkian and Kevorkian flourishes of the original, this heavy duty refix fuses elements of Italo, electro and techno into a deep disco smash-a-thon - taps aff or wot?!?! Over on the flipside, Signore Tennis takes "Voodoo Your Ex" on an emotive voyage through dub, disco and deep house, while still managing to enjoy a little post punk gloom. A chunky rhythm section chugs steadily through darkened streets, piercing the darkness with spiky guitar to bathe everything in the glow of deep house pads. As wobbling subs threaten the structural integrity of any nearby sky scrapers, creepy sequences wrap themselves around the groove, creating enough space for the tribal vocal to truly take hold. Essential tackle for any fans of the current Tel Aviv sound or Ivan Smagghe's Kill The DJ discs...

Patrick says: Italy's premier floor filler goes deep on this Disco Halal remix record, pushing both original tracks into the heart of the strobe-lit warehouse. Opt for the A-side if you're after Italo-influenced techno-disco, or skip to the flip for some weird, wired and warped wave sounds...
