Yunas Orchestra – Scratching The Surface

Oh man, i have been pretty rubbish at checking out new music for quite some time now…its been that hectic. On top of that we still get sent some great stuff. Stuff i like i keep to one side with the aim of posting it up, but then the days and weeks go by and other stuff comes through etc.   Anyway, tonight i had a bit of spare time so I went back to...

Ricky Castelli – U Can Feel It

Great music is believed to be timeless. I’ll buy that, but in reverse, I’d offer that great music is frequently made with timeless sounds. Take House Music for example, from the 80’s to now a couple of sounds that continually/always jump right out of some of the best tracks in the genre are the Korg M1 Piano and the Dx7’s Lately Bass sound.   I daren’t think how many records in my collection are made...

Kiasmos – Blurred

So we have been missing in action a bit over the last couple of weeks, due to work and travel…but I’m back now and its a quick one as i’m throwing up a track i have been meaning to put up for a while, but an artist we have covered before.   You probably know that Kiasmos is a collaboration between Olafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen. Blurred is a track from their last EP and what...

SØNIN – Polarity

SØNIN may be new to the mighty Youth Control label, but he comes with a fair old pedigree and years of experience behind him – cutting his teeth in the Gabber and scene he's shown a chameleon-eqsue ability to mutate his production to whatever he decides to lend himself to, be it Deep Nordic House to Indie Disco. Now finding a home on Youth Control he drops a two-track EP, All of my Teenage Crimes and...

Ada – …And More

First stumbled upon Ada's 2011 LP Meine Zarten Pfoten. In all honesty, when it first dropped it completely blew my fragile little mind. Just in how experimental it was alongside how polished it was. One of the problems with what I'd classify experimental music is it tends to lack some of the basics for the need to push the boundaries, I guess the word I'm looking for is a balance.   Regardless, it doesn't really...

The Revenge – Long Lost Love

I think I've actually lost count of the amount of The Revenge/6th Borough Project tracks we've featured. As anyone who's followed the blog will know I'm a huge fan of both incarnations. Of late Mt Clark under his Revenge alias has been a bit more on the raw tracky end of the spectrum which is great but I do love it when he comes back to these disco loop style track head tunes.   Long Lost...

Son Of Sound – New York Iz All I Know (Aroop Roy Remix)

Londons Delusions of Grandeur has long been one of my go-to labels releasing some of the best deep house of the last decade (even though they only started in 2009). Artists like the Revenge, Manuel Tur, deep Space orchestra and 6th Borough Project have all graced the label at various stages. Chopped disco, deep stripped back fidgeting tech house works outs? You think of it they've featured it.   Ok, so the labels got pedigree,...

COEO – Flesh World

Berlin-based Toy Tonics have been making a fair name for themselves of late, and I recently picked up the wonderful Flesh World EP by COEO from their Bandcamp page, deep sultry thick sweaty house….mmmmmmm! sweaty.   I do love looping tracks, and Flesh World the main track is a mesmerising zoned out groove, reminiscent of the early DJ Sneak,  and the other 83 west Records crew. By that I mean it's just a constant loop, with subtle...

Mayten – Hive

Ooooh its been a while…usual stuff blah blah blah and as often is the case i have been meaning to put this track up for some time.   We have featured Mayten, the electronic music produce from Seattle, before – the fantastic Detours. What i love about that track was that while it was an electronic, it had a beautiful almost organic sound, additionally it really took you on a journey, through genres (techno, deep...

Christine and the Queens – Tilted (Paradis Remix)

There is so much great music coming out over the next few days it's unreal. So I guess it's a little ironic that i'm opting for a track nearly a year old in Paradis's remix of the amazing Tilted by Christine and the Queens.   In truth I'd forgotten all about this version of the track, the original is a particular favourite but i may actually like this version better (especially the French version, but more...
