RAZOR-N-TAPE

Detroit’s Pontchartrain takes the Razor-N-Tape reigns for his debut on the label - an all-cylinders-firing jazz laden, deep house EP with an exquisite Demuja remix.

The A side kicks off with "The Friends & Lovers Dub" version of the title track "Love Is Madness", filled with deep pulsing pads, resonating dashes of sax, crisp percussion and a bumping bassline that provides the perfect backdrop to the echoing mantra of ‘Friends... Lovers’.

Next "I-80" is a wonder of shimmering arps, brooding bass tones and reverberating trumpet touches. Perfect for the early hours, entrancing dancers as it washes over the airwaves.

On the flip, Austria’s golden boy Demuja hits hard with a Kerri Chandler channeling deep house remix of "Love Is Madness", centred around a pumping bass synth, sustained organs and a classic marriage of horn stabs and emotive spoken word.

Closing the EP the original mix is a sun kissed, eyes closed gem that blends delicate bongos, rousing sax lines and the sweet vocals of Simon Black & Leafar.

A must for any record collection out there, house head or not.

Matt says: Detroit's new breed is alive and well with a few records emanating out of our psychologically twinned city this week. Pontchartrain AND Eddie Logix (also worth checking) both supplying us with upfront, plane-sanded deep house music with spiritual leanings.

FORMAT INFORMATION

12" Info: Orange vinyl 12"

Danny K, one of dance music's upper echelon-members continues his Mr. K edits series in total earnest. You'd have thought cat might have given up by now, spending nigh on the last thirty years at the top of his game, but no! he just keeps on giving. A lovely man and a true ambassador for disco and dance music in general, there's not many cut from the same (silk) cloth as this man!

Two more rambunctious edits from disco's well-excavated underground but there's no-one really that does it better than this man! As deft with the razor blade as he is with a turntable, it's his precise selections, grasp of dynamics and general air of sophistication that sets his work apart from the majority of the also-rans. If you've ever had the joy of seeing him play, you might recognize this two cuts from his personal armory; if you haven't, then enjoy the music and try to catch the great man in action sometime in the near future - you won't regret it!

Sil says: Smooth full moon is out and all you need is this 12" oozing midnight jazzy vibes on both sides courtesy of master Mr. K. Gold.

Brazilian DJ and producer Rafael Cancian delivers a veritable United Nations of diverse international disco flavor for his first outing on Razor-N-Tape. The A side delivers cheeky horns and gyrating synths with Ç'est La Douceur, followed by a flurry of string stabs and vocal fourishes with theI Italo-tinged Fascino Di Milano. On the flip we get a taste of Rafa’s native Brasilian boogie with the stomping Frágil, and the EP winds down with the sensual slow groover Besos Libres. This is a 4-tracker of serious heat representing all four romance languages…perfect for romancing, and dancing!

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: More worldwide edits on the confidently good Razor 'n' Tape label. On this instalment there is a bit of Brasil, Italia and France all in the same 12". Diverse and dancefloor friendly.
