A2 - Expansion Permanente

B1 - Laura

B2 - Eclosion

V/A - Uncanny Valley 004

1 - Sneaker - You think you think

2 - Cvbox - Machinematch

3 - Stefan Lohse - Platschern

The Uncanny Valley-quartet is rounded up by the Ace of Spades. Before starting to release its first Artist-EPs, the compilation-series is rounded up for now with the roughest EP so far. Sneaker’s You Think You Think! takes no prisoners and comes with a dark bass line you can't really resist. The track is a musclebound monster and includes claps that are out of control and freaked out vocals by Sneaker himself. No less rough is cvbox' machinematch, even if its acid-thunderstorm builds up far more subtly. Finally, Plätschern by Stefan Lohse takes us on a 100-BPM-journey straight into analogue wonderland...

Chris Gray - FMlk3 [Freebeat]

A1 - FMIk3 Dark

B1 - FMIk3 Cloudgate

B2 - FMIk3 Tranquil

The first release on the new Freebeat label from Spain, associated in part with Downbeat label . Chicago producer Chris Gray (Deep4Life) contributes the music on the label's debut twelve. "FMIK Dark" is hypnotic and groovy Unique percussion rattles on and on while small fluctuations and nuances in the groove provide variation for the dancers. "FMIK3 Cloudgate" is more techy and dark in its outlook but still retains the unique, rattling percussion that’s synonymous with this producer. Towards the end of the track we get a huge bassline drop along with a killer flute solo that makes for some intense energy. One of those tracks that evolves into something pretty special after a dramatic build up. "FMIK3 Tranquil" closes the EP and has ethereal, dreamy soundscapes alongside cascading flute elements from the beginning. Its steady, restrained drums and floaty, concentric feel make it ideal for the early sunrises or the long drive home. Introspective, radiant and dreamy.

A1 - Time & Space (2011 version)

A2 - Time & Space (original verison)

B1 - Time & Space (Duplex South Side remix)

B2 - Time & Space (Duplex North Side remix)

Surprising release by Gerd on the Basement Series with an old classic themed techno track he found on a dusty DAT tape while archiving some old recordings. Somehow a traditional techno track with metalic basslines, stellar string sounds and retro futuristic vocals with a classic theme... time & space. The original slower paced version did get an reshape/makeover that gives it a 2011 update that will be a standard record in the box for many! Remixers on duty are Rotterdam's Duplex duo who are back in business and deliver two remixes.

Wax - NO.40004

A - Untitled

B - Untitled

Fresh outta Shed's Berlin matrix, two optimized Techno-House killers! A-side whips dancers into shape with proper early '90s Detroit styles, all cracking hanclaps, fizzing hi-hats and a Reese style sub for your behind. B-side is a bit more pumping and dubby, with deftly diffused dub chords and hydraulickin' bass pressure.

Marcelus – Getthecurse podcast [Gtc135]

Marcelus - Ep 2 [Deeply Rooted House]

A1 - Shape

A2 - Life Cycle

B1 - Sulfuric

B2 - Mutation

Marcelus returns to Deeply Rooted House with a exciting twelve inch 'Ep. 2'! Rawer stompin tracks that never fail to capture that essential funking groove that make the difference between a standard techno track and a track that stands out! Somehow drifting between new school techno and old school early 90's acidic Chicago house Marcelus surely merged best of both worlds into 4 subtle and haunting Techno tracks with an unstoppable groove.

Tyree - Nuthin Wrong - Mojuba Underground

A - Nuthin Wrong

B - Track 2

Mojuba is very proud to present a new little daughter to the label family called Mojuba Underground. From now on Mojuba Underground will be the home for unforgettable, rare, obscure licensed tracks that left a huge impression on us during all the years at the clubs. The start is made by Tyree aka Tyree Cooper with Nothin Wrong licensed from a classic Dance Mania 12″ released way back in 1995. This track has the magic combination of being emotional and soulful in terms of house and straight forward funky and kicking in terms of techno.

Phidias & Freund Der Familie - Black Secret 1/2 - Freund Der Familie

A - Phidias - Cygnus Astratus

B - Freud Der Familie - Hydra (radio edit)

Berlin label Freund Der Familie launched in 2008 and have since dominated the release stream with their own productions. This time, with Black Secret 1/2, the label welcome Phidias, a name we're admittedly unfamiliar with. "Cydnus Astratus", much like its producer, is brimming with mysterious suspense. Crackling samples and deviating soundscapes scramble over the steady rhythm in an ambient yet minimal approach. On the B, FDF themselves head for the darkness. Ascending creepily, it drips with raw, echoey points and high frequencies to rival any horror movie. Black Secret 1/2 is a heavy and atmospheric record from FDF and Phidias, an artist that we'll hopefully hear more from in the future.

Braille - The Year 3000 [Rush Hour Direct Current]

 A - The Year 3000

B - Leavin Without You

Braille comes with his first single for Rush Hour and what a debut it is! The mind behind Braille is better known as Praveen, who forms Sepalcure together with Machinedrum. He uses this new alias for his house orientated output. 'The Year 3000' is a vocal house mover of anthemic proportions. It craftily reworks a classic Chicago house vocal and gives it new life back into the future. Banging! 'Leavin Without You' is built around a heartfelt vocal soul sample, which cuts in and out of the mix leaving room the music to take off leaving planet earth. Braille creates a perfect balance between the old and the new and shows us the way forward.

Juergen Junker - Unhampered By Regulations Vol 1[Neurhythmics]

A - Unclean Mutha

B1 - Working here For Real

B2 - Honey

A few years have passed and Neurhythmics resurfaces after like-minded souls decided to bring it back. Juergen Junker returns with a 3 track 12” that stems from a live-set concept he created over the last few months. Raw as you like, it takes a distinct bow towards the earlier days of the windy city. Dirty, knackered sounding drums, and cut-up vocal bits fused together to a driving force that is hard to resist.

Synthonic Matter/Stl- Homespun Remedies [Something]

Still with us


Loops 1-4


What happened with to all that noise?

Stephan`s latest Something Vinyl Series includes the mighty deep jacking STL business as well as experimental home listening adventures under his Synthonic Matter project. Again a very personal feeling snapshot of someone´s life, transformed into sound and groove. Still With Us deals with the listeners inside emotions, since it is original meant about love and loss. Snapmode can do such weird things to you just like the title promises, while the Synthonic Matter track gets you in a one-man listening situation full of crazy happenings and creative power. But each being for it´s own and so you surely will find something personal for yourself on this record. A release which is hard to preview in short listening files, because of it´s extended playing time and variations in style. You´ll have to invite this vinyl to take a spin on your turntable. Homespun Remedies has not the intention to follow some kind of hype, trend or secret links. It´s just a honest reflection of living moments captured in music and sound waves to make your time vibrating, pleasant and emotional.
