From a lovely EP of the same name, this is Boston producer Tamer Malki’s debut for ever-reliable Kindisch. Warm, floaty and ephemeral, like a big cloud of deep house steam. Nice, in other words.
I love summer. The endless cloudy skies, occasional thunderstorms and complete lack of anything even resembling a ray of sun. Hang on, wait. That’s not summer! Or at least it might be summer in London in 2013. Fuck it, let’s listen to deep, slow moody house music in the dankest basement we can find until nature sorts itself out. Yeah? YEAH! x
Some lovely analog techno for you here, and you know how much we like that shit over here! The original is well worth checking out too – about and minimal and stripped down as techno gets these days – but it’s Sascha Dive’es version that really got our attention. Tense, sinister and mechanical, it’s core elements are softened by a beautifully delicate murmur late on; the full version is over 11 minutes long so this clips doesn’t really do it justice, but hopefully it’s tickled you enough to check out the full release, out this week on Minimood Extra.
This is the next release from one of our very favourite labels. Yep, that’s right… we’re well biased, but you’re going to have to get over it. Anyway, it’;s a three-track EP from French producer Elize who’d gone heavy on the RnB samples but without making the records sound proper sappy. Instead, they’re all deep, groovy and delicious. Plus, you can download one of the track – All These Ices - exclusively from XLR8R ahead of the official release on 25th March. Bosh.
We love Axel Boman. We want to give him cuddles; and it’s records like this that reinforce that desire. Warm, loopy and emotional, Looks What You’ve Done To Me pushes all the right melancholic buttons while simultaneously making you feel real good about life; no mean feat we’re sure you’ll agree. Part of his Magic Black Bowman EP forthcoming on Hypercolour, you can get the vinyl 25th February and the digital a week or so later.
Some delightful, dubby techno that pushes all the right emotive buttons; the A-side from Alan Backdrop’s forthcoming Excursion A is sublime. Check the rest of the EP for a bit more experimental weirdness, but stay right here for dancefloor-aimed deepness. Out 18th Jan on Swiss Motoguzzi Records, this is the first of a two-part release (Excursion B, perhaps?), that will no doubt be as exemplary as the first.
This is the next release on my Tenth Circle label, and I’m proper excited about it finally coming out; it’s been a long time in the making. I’ve always wanted to have a Greenville Massive release on the label, so for it to happen makes me feel all warm inside. Hopefully these records will give you a similar feeling. Out 3rd December.
