Minimal tech-house glory: Makcim & Levi Remix via Mountain People You know that House music that is often called Deep House where the DJ turns the bass off and then turns the bass back on to get your hands in the air? Well, technically this is that type of record. However to leave our description there would be an unfair generalisation of this sound, the DJs who play it, and the record featured here: Mountain People 011.2 – Makcim & Levi Remix. In truth a better genre classification, as used by Phonica and Juno, would be Minimal / Tech-House. A classification that indicates that what you’re actually getting will be stripped back, mostly likely ... Read more / Preview track

Bicep’s exceedingly tasty: T&P – Hail Falls (Hammer Remix) When dance music burst onto the UK music scene in the late 80’s early 90’s it was unashamedly party music. Although underground it was big on hooks. Be that hook a vocal, piano or 303 it had one purpose in mind – to make your dance. A fact that T&P – Hail Falls (Hammer Remix), whole heartedly embraces. However unlike the late 80’s, early 90’s we now live in an era where an over indulgence in catchy hooks may result in you thinking – ‘what baked goods could I throw at my audience this evening’… A line of thought that whilst potentially lucrative may ultimately result ...

Scratchy Garage infused House: DJ Seinfeld – Airing of Grievances At times underground house may as well be called 'Pastel House' with its uninspiring and insipid tones. Where as in the commercial world 'Glossy House' as we like to call it, is mostly generic and cliched. A state of affairs that thankfully DJ Seinfeld seems to be subverting with considerable ease. To illustrate our point listen to his Rimbaudian alias and the killer Drop It On Em or check last years Konets Sveta Minimix. And now he's back with his third record of the year DJ Seinfeld - Airing of Grievances via E-Beamz. As you would expect from a DJ Seinfeld record the beats have a ... Read more / Preview track

Brooding analog Techno: Sleep D & Albrecht La’Brooy – From 50 Modern digital based Techno can often sound unnecessarily cold and clinical. But this was not always the way, back when Apple was floundering and Ableton was a mere twinkle in Gerhard Behles eye, Techno, whilst threadbare compared to it's Chicago based cousin, House, still had an innate warmth to it. Why...analog. And its this warmth that the Melbourne based Australians have been bringing to their predominately techno based sound since we discovered them last year with Sleep D - The Jackal Pt 2. And now they have teamed up with another of our 2016 discoveries to release: Sleep D & ... Read more / Preview track
