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.
Few artists have been as prolific as Kris Wadsworth over the last year or so; fewer still have produced such relentlessly excellent, confident music as he does. So where he’s found time to create an entire album’s worth of new material in amongst everything else is beyond me. But he has, and we’re all the happier for it. Life & Death is a stunning LP; brash, raw, analogue sounds and deep, dark sentiments. ‘Showtime’ is one of the many highlights and characterizes much of the programming on display, building and layering harsh percussion on top of heavy-as-fuck beats until it literally pounds you into submission. Sound horrible? It really isn’t. Due out 30th November on Get Physical with a sampler EP dropping a week or so before that.
And you thought it would be an entire month before we got round to posting anything… oh yea of little faith…
We like Kris Wadsworth over here at Getdowngood, enough even to wake us from our October slumber and bring you another exceptional piece of music from the US producer. Taken from his Fingerprint EP (out 5th November on HypeLTD), ‘Fan Mail’ kicks, swings and grunts – quite literally – in all the right places. Sexy.
