Pretty tasty techno feelings from an uncovered split release between Brothers Black and Tape Fear the week. Tape Fear runs the label Bade, that hosts this gem of an offering so go get you some of that while its still warm. On top of that found this killer cut (peep that last minute too!) thanks to a reminder of a discount book store in town that had been unloved from me for a bit. It’s always tough not to come back around to good ol’ Ava Records, they always seem to have just what you need if you’re looking to freshen up or funk’n up your sets. This obscure short film from label head Damiano Von Erckert is a treat that served as accompaniment to his last full length. Until next launch!
I’m at the beach right now, so it’s fair to say my selections will be even more sun-kissed than usual! Filipe Gordon is the fist up to get the toes tapping in the sand. ‘Para Berta’ is my fav from the excellent across-the-board Dead Horse EP which features some classy sliced up vibes. Fuck Reality just put out a repress of the classic Westbam and Nena track ‘Old School Baby’ with a tasty new mix from Gerd. It’s a very welcome new addition, but the ‘Piano Mix’ still pushes all the right buttons for me.
Loop me baby, like one of your french trax - joyful repetitive vibes on Degustibus from Ditongo’s ‘Editales Vol 2’; grab it for instant foolishness! I’ll finish things off slightly cooler with Carebears ‘Cozy Heart Penguin’. It’s an experience as cuddly as it sounds and definitely one for the later hours maybe by the campfire!
It's such a treat to buy a relatively new release, then shortly after see that the next release is already up for previewing. In this instance, I'm talking about Almaty, Photonz and the amazing Lisbon based record, Naive. Don't ask me how they keep such a tight and consistent release schedule, on top of continually releasing quality dance music that actually represents the world around us. So much inspiration from Violet and the crew, check out those Almaty and Photonz releases here and here, respectively. Next up is a limited reissue of MoMA Ready's first EP, ‘Ocean Walker I’, originally released in 2017. Expect to hear some other worldly liquid dnb tracks, equally serene as they are chaotic. Check out his bandcamp for details on physical and digital release there, and that'll do me for this week y'all!
