One of the most consistent labels from everyone’s favorite island/continent has delivered once again with their twelfth offering by way of Rings Around Saturn. Circling Architecture on Voyage conjures some out there IDM vibes that wind and inject your ears with the breathing room it didn’t know it needed while nurturing the creeping emissions of the farther throws of the galaxy. Had no clue that Soul of Hex, one of the very best out of Mexico, had released on Freerange not once but TWICE. Snake Snares came out less than a year after his debut on the label and was produced almost exclusively on the Octatrack, give a listen and I dare you not to move. Finishing out with and odd split between a deep house ‘suave’ant and modern midwest legend. Laurence Guy, who has built a fantastic rapport for his dreamy yet emotive productions, winds down the B-side of the label Cin Cin’s second record following two marauding acid bangers from Todd Osborn. Peeps here and I’ll catch y’all next week for some more frequencies and such.
Sure Cuts makes a very welcome return with the ‘Beat Bunch EP’ full of useful chunky business to appease thirsty dance-floors. Scraping around in this week’s Juno sale I found ‘Slip & Slide’, which JPB characterized as ‘low and wompy’ and that’s pretty hard to argue with! I can’t resit bumpy stuff like this, reminiscent of something Kenny Dope might casually throw out and make the crowd go beserk. In other digging adventures, (this time irl) I scored a haul of old pop-rave recently including this jolly fun time from Simon Harris. Alright, that’s what I have for now - keep your ears pricked for some big shit coming from us, very very soon!
Another transmission from the Motherbeat has landed! Eris Drew joins Edward, D. Tiffany, and Henry Hyde for a mix of mellow, break-y and serine tracks. All proceeds benefit Needs, a not-for-profit label & event series focused on using music "as a medium to spread love, unity and the idea of giving back", find that one here. Riz La Teef is back at it with a new label of his own, South London Press, offering four up-beat, warm weather jams with a hint of disco thrown in there for an added bonus. Limited quantities on that thang, so preview here and pre-order here.
