B1 - Out In The Woods
B2 - Zealand

"Second drop on Geography records from Sweden, and delivering a nice ep by Smallvilles Julius Steinhoff that goes in the same deep, melencholic mood as the Aniara releases that somehow, just like this record, always reminds us of the endless forest and nature in the nordic territories. " Clone

Norm Talley - The Journey (Remixes) - Third Ear

A - The Journey (Panther remix)

In Yo Soul (Scott Grooves beats)

"The classic The Journey track remixed by Scott Grooves... essential Detroit house music.Beatdown Brother Norm Talley's 'The Journey' cut is given a much needed remastering (by Stefan betke aka Pole) and reissue treatment by Third Ear backed with 'In Yo Soul'. It's a pure lesson in house minimalism with a basic formula of 909 percussion, filtered strings and a killer bassline completely perfected for the club. Comes backed with the cool Beatdown track 'In Yo Soul' to kick your crowd into the groove." Rush Hour

Carl Craig - 20 Years Planet E (Essential Mix)

Mokira – Time Axis Manipulation - Kontra Musik

Tracks km018.1

A1 - Time Track

B1 - Time Track Silent Servant remix

"Part I – 'Time Track'. Mokira's Time Track is the deepest of dub music and electronic gear has seldom sounded this organic. Rolling cords and bassline builds slowly towards the dub meltdown. On the b-side Silent Servant (Sandwell District, Historia y Violencia) produces a rolling wall of sound. This is a high energy, metallic sounding dance piece ready to serve djs around the globe." Clone

Tracks km 018.2

A1 - Axis Audio

B1 - Axis Audio Echospace Model I

"Part II – 'Axis Audio'. Mokira once told Kontra-Musik that three analog tape echoes are needed to produce one Mokira track. When listening to the track Axis Audio you can hear why. Metallic bursts of sound hits like waves on an Irish shore in autumn. Kept together by a solid bassline and a fragile melody Axis Audio is an excursion in beautiful sounds. On the b-side, Echospace (Deepcord, Modern Love) makes you dance. It is distorted, it is minimal, it is raw and last but last not least, it is oh so funky." Clone

Tracks km018.3

A1 - Manipulation Musik

B1 - Manipulation Musik Redshape Tape Dub

"Part III – 'Manipulation Musik'. Manipulation Musik is the darkest and most cinematic piece on this collection of EPs. Delicate manipulated melodies and melancholic strings moves in and out of a crackling and distorted soundscape, telling an experimental sound tale with a sad ending. On b-side Redshape (Present, Delsin) makes a remix solely using sounds from the original. Redshape described his tape dub version like this: “think disco dub, plonk & pain”." Clone

Chicago Skyway,Specter & ChicagoDeep Live Acid

The Great Traitor - The Great Traitor - Remnant Records

A - The Great Traitor
B - Echoes Of The Great Traitor ( Monolake Version)

" Ethereal avant-techno/breakbeats from an unknown US operator, backed with a sumptuous and extended Monolake version. 'The Great Traitor's self-titled entry weaves fragments from the legendary Conet Project shortwave recordings (if you don't know - go seek!) into a rugged mesh of hardcore breaks zip-locked with close and muggy atmospherics. In the hands of Monolake this becomes the 'Echoes Of The Great Traitor'. The shimmering pizzicato strings of the original are digitally iced and diffused into a gaseous state while the rhythm is subjected to typical Henke refinements. Its 'ardcore drum angles are erased to leave ghostly halfstep comtrails in the air, hanging over subliminal bass swells swooning with fragile yet dynamic force, the atmospheres oscillating between cloistered and wide open with dizzying, head pressure-altering effect."

Italojohnson - Italojohnson 3


"The mysterious Italo Johnson returns with his third masterpiece. The A-side brings back memories of Chicago, with an instantly recognisable sound. Slowly but surely the the track opens, working through a breakdown, a classic drum roll and a euphoric meltdown... B1 provides an unusual twist to the 12". There’s no space for compromises here; the acid hook & the industrial drumline give the track its meaning. Finally the second track on the flipside completes the whole package and is destined for the late night hours." Phonica

Cuticle - Confectioner Beats - 100% Silk

A1 - Merciful Swound
A2 - Flair
A3 - Towel
B1 - Approaching Global/Serenety's Sequel
B2 - Shrine
B3 - Nurbs

"Unstably zonked post-dancefloor amazingness from the triumvirate of Jeff Witscher (Rene Hell), Daren Ho (Driphouse) and Brendan O'Keefe (Nimby). Like Hell's skewed Yoyo Dieting take on Chopped 'N Screwed HipHop last year, this 12" takes a crooked look at the last 25 years of House and Techno, assimilating the sound from outside in and making it buckle into dizzying, disoriented refractions of itself. The label liken it to a Tron-esque matrix, which is pretty apt, but this is like Tron programmed by James Ferraro (f*ck, we'd love to hear him do a 100% Silk 12"!), full of blind jump-cuts into a hybrid analogue/digital multi-tiered cyber-clubscape for those who were barred from The Endless House. Dosed-up, we wander through catacombs of womb-like rooms, the individual sub-sub-genre sounds of each DJ blending into the next with nauseating effect (or perhaps that was the mescaline stars?)."

Dadavistic Orchestra - Dokument .01 - Dust Science

A - Strung Valve Checkout
B - Dada Fish Sticks

"Dadavistic Orchestra is a post-industrial ambient collusion between the Black Dog and 3 former members of legendary Dutch ensemble, The Psychick Warriors Of Gaia (Tim Freeman, Arbe and Robbert Heijnen). Doused in anti-establishment rhetoric, the project's first offering is two sides of beatless ambient drifts taking us right back to the mid-'90s. 'Strung Valve Checkout' roams through cybernetic fields of lonely piano keys and widescreen HD drones with a deeply-rooted feeling of cyber-tribal psychedelia. 'Dada Fish Sticks' is more blissed, but in that synthesized Dutch pharmaceutical sense, with a sharp edge that keeps you aware this is all a simulation. " Boomkat

Pangaea - Inna Daze / Won't Hurt - Hessle Audio

A - Inna Daze
B - Won't Hurt

"Over a year after his eponymous Hessle EP, Kevin McAuley augments his sound to a 130bpm (or thereabouts) style of deep Technoid ruffige compatible with label brethren Elgato or more recent 2562 beats. Squaring up to 'Inna Daze' we're faced with a rugged rollers figure, broad, shoulder swinging bass with a Monolake-esque finish synched to hip-tucking, fake-out drum programming pecked with feverish diva yelps and siren stabs. On the flip, 'Won't Hurt' starts out pensive but soon enough brings the bass weight like some 2005 DMZ classic, only at 130bpm and with hair-raising Detroit techno strings delivered like a true badman."

In a similar vein to the legendary Unit Moebius, these tracks show the traces of Chicago House, Benelux EBM and Detroit Electro-Techno which informed the notorious West Coast sound, from snappy acid tweakers like 'Acid Trip Soft' to smacky techno on 'Too Much From Brown' and beatless sewer-scapes such as 'Images'."

A1 - Speciality Party (vox)

Speciality Party (instrumental)
B - Lights Over Fort Lee

"Shocking debut entry from NYC's Policy on Rush Hour's excellent Current Direct series. Apparently signed up on the strength of a demo, part time movie director, Policy has a sharply defined programming style all of his own. This is best heard on 'Specialty Party' where flickers of not-quite garage patterns fall into bewildering, mutant Brokebeat formations, kinda like the runty offspring of Falty DL. With 'Lights Over Fort Lee' he displays an aptitude for sprawling, cinematic arrangements, again with a distinctly unique personality. Rush Hour are touting him as their contender for best newcomer of the year" Boomkat

"The record features one long new track on the A-side as well as two older and previously unreleased pieces for the B-side. The main track ‘Bla’ was conceived after editing real-time and live sessions made for gigs after the release of last years ‘Tvenna’ EP. The sound material ‘Bla’ was initially made from was quite old and the idea and title of the EP ‘Lost and found’ came about, reworking of older ideas in a new setting. The A-side demonstrates the more dancefloor side of Einóma while the B-side explores the more dark and dense regions Einóma have become more known for." Clone

Joy O - Wade In / Jels - Hotflush Recordings

A1 - Wade In
A2 - Jels

"These two productions take a more straightforward approach, toeing along the lines of classic house music, infused with this talented producer’s own signature style, weaving rolling acidic basslines in “Wade In” and uplifting melodies in “Jels” and over shuffling Roland drums and blissful atmospherics." Stholdings

ORACY presents Some Real House Classics & More!

Prostitune - Justfixit - Just Another Beat

A - Justfixit
B - NJ Turnpike

Warm chord driven techno tracks with a slightly more laidback feel to it.

Szare - Horizontal Ground 08

A1 - Document
B1 - Pressure
B2 - Triplicate

"Finished product off the Horizontal Ground production line: three tracks of dry groove mechanics from Szare. It seems each new Szare 12" shows a carefully considered, incremental evolution in his style. The A-side shapes those trademark subs with leaner muscularity while teasing in a Millsian, SITS-style synth drone. The B-side comes confidently funkier, all slipping, Housed-up gear changes for the dancers, followed by a sticky, minimalist electro swinger." Boomkat

214 - Drift Diving - Harbour City Sorrow

A - Drift Diving
B1 -Porous Surfs
B2 -Sidestepping

"Seattle's 214 (TwoFourteen) is next in line for some HCS ear candy. His Miami roots are clearly present in his strong booming beat programming but Puerto Rico born Chris Roman has more tricks up his sleeve as his style crosses many borders. It's a solid electro-techno affair on this EP. Drift Diving could easily be a Warp/Schematic like track from the IDM heydays. Sharp electro rhythms combined with deep string laden melodies, pads and very strong attention for detail are the ingredients for this beautiful piece of machine funk. Porous Surfs on the flip is an epic ambient scape that sounds if it comes from 4000 feet deep. The EP finishes off with Sidestepping, an electro-techno track that has a smart modern arrangement with very big bombastic string parts that will appeal to fans of ERP and the likes" Clone

Rivet - Inside Looking Out - Naked Index

A - Inside Looking Out
B1 - Hovedtelefon
B2 - Vermont

"Three tracks of spectral Techno with a real rugged finish from someone called Andy Rivet - on what would appear to be a Frozen Border-affiliated imprint (their email address is the only give away). The A-side is a relentless dry groover deploying swooping subbass and sandpaper-textured rhythms with moody pads. B-side features one dub-touched roller and a killer Breakbeat-driven jack-off kinda reminding of Shed's recent Power House productions." Boomkat
