Ugh, just when you thought that music can’t get any better for your life force, that sneaky cutie comes creeping around a corner and boops your soul with fathoms more aural love. Found one of those comps to end all comps this week on New York label Mister Saturday Night. The Then and Now compilation has got the goods y’all, and what better way to prove that than with a kick ass mix showcasing the contents of the triple 12”/CD! Danvers released on Boogie Cafe to quick popularity a few days ago AND Sofa Talk’s new one on Omena is about to drop physically too, not to mention the new Heist Recordings release and announcement that Books is next on their roster under his real name Hugo Mari. ALL THE STUFF NOW GO DANCE OR SHIMMY OR NOD OR WHATEVER YOU DO, LOVE YA BYE.
Adam Port just put out his Planet 9 EP on Diynamic and it’s just so damn suitable for the season. Fuzzy guitars to slip in to and feel whole again. Also shuffling and chuckling in to the room is Joe Cleen, with his new ‘edits’ on Sloth Boogie. So much joy to be had here, it will take you on a little vacation! Warriors Dance released a tasty little double A-side you can grab here. Koro Koro is a blissful slice of yoga-house, while ‘It’s My Life’ on the B is a hardcore homage, that’s going to have you weeping in to your Vicks soaked respirator. I’ll finish up with some lovely textures via Trevor Keen, who’s cassette release on Atlantic Rhythms, ‘Upon Reflection’ is available for pre-order now.
Moving sucks, unless it's a sweet Chicago based label that just so happens put all of their records up for 5 bucks each, then it's tight. Argot is moving to NY, so I had to dig through their catalog to pull out some gems, like Maxine & Cleo's Mad Blanc EP, which serves up a healthy portion of deep, hypnotic house music, with a helping of bassy techno thrown in there too. Borai's Last Time Out is the perfect soundtrack for a late night cruise through the city, and Chase Smith's Stay is a two piece release, with each track leaning more toward the bright, uplifting end of the spectrum. Dark Entries recently announced their latest release, a six track EP from Lisbon based Photonz, and it's pure madness ranging from dark, dissonant, electro that just demands you to jack your body, to atmospheric and dreamy synth based tracks. Previews and pre-order info can be found here, and until next week, peace y'all!
