DJ Mark Flash – Brasilia EP [Underground Resistance]

[ UR-078 ]

Mark Flash drops a stomping great piece of Detroit party-funk – mashing a South American groove with the emotive UR chords into an unstoppable whole. It reminds me a bit of Los Hermanos/Ican but it then goes a bit further. Supermassive.

Tracklisting:

  • A1. Sao Paulo
  • A2. Erzuli
  • B1. Cachaca
  • B2. Minha Mocambo

Erell Ranson – Sense Of Our Life [MySelf]

Erell Ranson launches his own label with this expansive piece of truly deep techno. I was very surprised by this because it brings me back to the days of ‘Rhythim Is Rhythim’. Your only difficulty is choosing between the shiny original and the Mayday-inflected Arne Weinberg remix.

Tracklisting:

  • A1. Sense Of Our Life
  • B1. Sense Of Our Life (Arne Weinberg remix)
  • B2. Conversations With Myself

Ahh Melodika finally comes back here with this great release from Pedro Cali. ‘Crazy Bounce’ is an interesting, subtle yet strong track with his funky beats and synths that lives up to its name. Both ‘My Sweet Angel’ and ‘I Am As I Am’ are very sweety and emotional tracks with familiar Motor city flavours and particular atmosphere.

  • 01. Crazy Bounce
  • 02. My Sweet Angel
  • 03. I Am As I Am
  • exclusive on beatport. Walk Away

Soul Designer – Evolutionism (part two) [Third Ear]

[ 3EEP-093-2 ]

Sublime. ‘Scaraboogie’ is a pure electronic boogie for all forward-thinking funk citizens. On the flip ‘Children Of Galapagos’ is an epic hi-tech jazz masterpiece that shows Fabrice Lig on top form. This is really really special for me.

Tracklisting:

  • A1. Ecosystem
  • A2. Scaraboogie
  • B1. Molecular Song
  • B2. Children Of Galapagos
