All in my feelings (go figure) after Valentine’s Day, thankfully the new stuff from Loure on Sloth Boogie Jamz is out to help process those emotions. His sound has developed really well over the past couple of years and it’s so cool to get to hear those changes over time. Peep that EP right here. Looks like Chrissy’s The Nite Owl Diner had a release sneak up for spring by Alexander East. This one is for busy dance floors that like to move, just give the title track a listen for yourself. Gonna wrap on my undying love for Cin Cin Records as of late, the new split between Kiwi and Joe Goddard landed on my porch recently. Those tough duh duh duh’s from Kiwi on the tune LakE will be forever worth the investment far as I’m concerned while KatE is gonna help heat up the floor and seed out the one who didn’t come to dance. Bye now!
Erol Alkans Phantasy Sound records is, by now, a dance music institution. As a DJ and selector Erol has the uncanny knack for spotting left-field bangers, from across the ‘club music’ spectrum. Recently released on the imprint, comes ‘Sound Test’ from the prolific Red Axes, a collection of baggy acid boogie for maximum lurch and sway action. The walking techno-meme Ricardo Villalobos has an collection of quirky world inspired beats upcoming on Deset Music. The pick for me is ‘Fontec’ which is so druggy that goes to Christmas and back. Papa Gerd has a new label: Andarta, which put out Warren Raw’s Raps to Get In, featuring ‘Meekong’ - an open handed slap of car chase funk to make your heart race. Have fun, be safe, be silly!
Gots a batch of bootlegs for y'all today, thanks to Downtown304 via that sweet free shipping deal. First up, Dirty Channels' 3 track for Take It Easy's first release. I'm lovin' this release for the choice cuts of course, but also because the track "The Lord" exemplifies what I love best about edits, a familiar source being flipped, freaked and stretched to the point where it's unrecognizable until minutes into the track. Vinyl only unfortunately, but check the previews here. Next up, a relatively new one from Tokyo based Edit & Dub, with a groovy 11+ minute A side of an impossible to find record from New Horizon, great for a bathroom break of course, but I'm a big fan of that MFSB track personally, check it for yourself here. I'll leave y'all with a timeless peak time number, Frankie Knuckles' remix of Million Dollar Bill. Till next time friendos!
