FRAME OF MIND

Almost flawless collection of tracks here from Platform. Drifting through deepest house, techno and electro styles with a deep rooted, traditionalist aesthetic yet totally unique and envelope-pushing.

Across nine tracks Platform pretty much covers all the bases for lovers of that classic sound. Some tracks nod to Jeff Mills, some to Derrick May, others even to Sleeparchive; a few are on a more housey vibe while a couple touch on vintage electro (albeit given a modern bite). I have to say there's not a duff'un amongst the set, and I'm reckoning most busy techno DJs are gonna get plenty of airtime from this record.

Hi-Ryze

Cyberia / After The Flood

    From the same producers that brought you the "Timenet" release, here we have a mighty fine re-issue of the very first Hi-Ryze record. "Cyberia" was originally released through cult label Brainiak back in 1990. Since then the Ubik production team released half a dozen of EP's under the Hi-Ryze name through various other classic imprints such as General Productions and Certificate 18. Here we have two of our faves handily compiled onto one jazzy AF disc: "Cyberia" - a twangy, highly kinetic, and massively shuffled affair that lands right slap bang between Chicago and Detroit; and "After The Flood" - a rave-indebted big room roller with hoover leads and more drum machines shuffled to oblivion! - don't miss the vintage woodblock attack on this one! Remastered from the original DAT tapes and sounding frrresh - do not sleep!

    Sil says: Mega and raw old school techno with killer basslines to make sure your neighbours keep appreciating you. Rave til you die and do play this loud for max effect.

    Last edition from the Nature Boy re-issue series. You know the score: five pumpin' club tunes in that typical Nature Boy style. Phazed and funky, packing some serious bottom end weight but laced with organic instrumentation and biotic sensibility that places it alongside luminaries KDJ, Theo Parrish, Ron Trent and Wyndell Long. Think classic Peacefrog & mid 90s house records, the MPC2000 and big spliffs; c90 mixtapes, exuberantly styled shirts and sharp undercuts. All that good stuff that's getting repackaged and dumbed down in 2018 reppin' here in fully authentic, OG form. Strictly 4 da headz....!

    With Necessary Ruffness DJ Nature presents some of his finest works recorded as Nature Boy during the early 90's. "Real", "Whatchusay" and "Philly Bound" come in the OG versions whereas "Euro Disney"'s unreleased demo version is presented here for the first time. With its slightly different break and tighter sound, this version is a bit more powerful and it's ridiculous to think these tracks were originally conceived in 1992. "Philly Bound" is a highly kinetic, highly enjoyable twisted Chi-town flavoured number, straight outta DJ Sneak's songbook. Also worth mentioning is the highly swung, "Watchusay" which sees Nature's patented swinging snare section in full effect. Mega stuff from this dance music mainstay.
