(in no particular order)
5 essential stuff
- Tribe – Rebirth [Community Projects/Planet E]
Wooaw woaw wooooaw. (What can I say ?)
- Deetron – Zircon/Orange [Music Man]
I am a fan of everything Sam Geiser has done with Music Man, and I think this is the best thing he’s done to date. So simple but insistently brilliant.
- Jeff Mills – The Drummer [Purpose Maker]
More Mills(art) loveliness.
- Trish Van Eynde – Subject Belgium [Subject Detroit]
Fantastic funkiness, straight forward Subject Detroit music. Trish Van Eynde is on fire.
- Silent Servant/Santiago Salazar – La Noche/La Minoria [Historia y Violencia]
Those 2 are as nice as always, I like what Historia y Violencia label is doing at the moment.
5 novelties (* all in promo status.)
- Jolka – The Jolka Experience [Sect] / Davor O. – Transitional Objects Remixes [Matrix]
10/10 (The Jolka Experience). No need to say more… "Transitional Objects Remixes" is a simply awesome package of mixes. This is the best thing Matrix has done in a while.
- Traxx – Faith [Nation]
Classic, great forward thinking house music. Jack your body !!
- (A guy from D) – (A track on A-Side) [(An UK label)]
(I can’t tell you any details yet……) That D guy returns to an UK quality techno label with sweet, sweet techno stuff. This is what Detroit techno soul is all about.
- Rennie Foster – Songs For Homeless Housers [Greta Cottage Workshops]
Foster goes house in his own fashion. ‘Butterfingers’ is a really amazing tune, just class production all the way.
- Mick Welch – Morphological Construct EP [Elektrosouls]
Reminiscent of B12′s work, great melodic stabby winner on new Crawley-based label to definitely look out for.
- 69 – 4 Jazz Funk Classics [Planet E]
The first record I ever bought – back when I was 14 years old. I must have listened to this stuff a thousand times back then. ‘Ladies & Gentlemen’ sounded like nothing else I had heard before and I still love it. C2 always makes my day.
- 69 – Lite Music [Planet E]
- 69 – Sound On Sound [Planet E]
- 69 – Pungtang [Planet E]
- The Detroit Experiment – The Detroit Experiment [Planet E]
