FRAME OF MIND

Dutch pioneer MG (aka Gert van Veen) is responsible for a series of huge house classics to emerge from the Netherlands: A-men's "Pay The Piper", Quazar's "Seven Stars", House of Venus' "Dish & Tell". The list is long. Under his lesser known moniker Zodiac Trax, Gert produced some of his moodiest material. Released in 1992 in two parts, these beautifully crafted tracks remained fairly unknown up to this day. For this re-issue Frame Of Mind selected the deepest tunes from the obscure series. A previously unreleased track called "Planet X" is included - winner!

This really is some delightful stuff - appealing to fans of early Derrick May, Transmat, Red Planet, Sheffield 'bleep', B12, FSOL etc etc. I don't THINK I've heard much of this material out in the field, which is testament to its obscurity (but luckily not to its quality, which is bang on). Tasty re-ish! Get involved. 


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.

FORMAT INFORMATION

12" Info: *ONE COPY FOUND!**

Long before he rose to the top of the beatdown tree as DJ Nature, Wild Bunch affiliate Milo Johnson flipped lids and blew speakers with the rawest sampler abuse around under the name Nature Boy. It was 1992 and the loved up togetherness of nascent dance music had been replaced by the militant tribalism of a fragmented scene. Seemingly oblivious to all this, Milo took the seismic basslines of dub, psychotic keys of techno, grit of hip hop and warmth of disco and merged them all into one floor-filling fusion of multi-layered house brilliance. Back in press for 2017 courtesy of Gerd’s newly minted Frame Of Mind, this is some must have tackle!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Ooof! After flying out the door before it came in, the re-repress of Milo 'DJ Nature' Johnson's mega "Ruff Disco Volume One" returns. Raw, grooving and utterly unique, you're gonna come back to this one again and again!
