A1 - Suspense
A2 - Expansion Permanente
B1 - Laura
B2 - Eclosion
DJ F aka Ideograma appears on his second 12" for Semantica Records for a diverse Techno session. Styles range from pumping, white-noise coated jacks to some real crafty Latin-synched shakers like 'Expansión Permanente' and 'Eclosión' at perhaps unconventional tempos.
B - Laser!
Out of the blue we have a new Redshape! After a year of silence he is back and delivering one of his best works so far. Cutting edge dancefloor material that will keep them moving like there's no tomorrow..

The second Unthank release by Vakula delivering some nice deep tracks on the Firecracker sub label. A strong contrast to the debut Unthank EP from Bakey Ustl, this 3 tracker contains influences as diverse as Aphex Twin, Claro Intellecto or even DBX.

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...
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- David Alvarado - La Soledad (Raiz remix)
B1 - Santiago Salazar - Caja De Luz
Los Angeles legend David Alvarado is making a special appearance on H&V. David has always been a big inspiration - a classic DJ/producer and artist of the highest degree. Santiago pays homage to Carl Craig's uber-classic 'At Les'! This release sees both Santiago Salazar and David Alvarado forge instant classics that transcend time and trend....
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.

A - Beauty
B1 - Beauty (Ra H Cabinet mix)
B2 - Life
Label boss Aroy Dee signs for his already 8th release on his own MOS Recordings label. The track 'Beauty' reminds his label's first release, a basic dreamy melodic house track. On the b-side we find man of the moment Rabih Baeani aka Morphosis dropping a heavy remix. Hot on the heels of his praised 'What Have We Learned'-album takes his dark dusty 'Cabinet'-remix all things in perspective.

D1 - Execution
D2 - Passed Me By
This album – mini-album, EP, doublepack, call it what you will – is an uncompromising and hugely absorbing work, by turns brutal and beautiful, from one of the UK’s most talented and criminally underrated producers. It’s really good to have him back.

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

Still with us
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.
