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...

Erdbeerschnitzel – Morgans Glen

I’ve always been a follower of Erdbeerschnitzel, but I do understand his eclectic take on music production doesn’t always mean you know what you’re getting but when he hits the spot he really is on another level. I really also love the fact he makes music as a hobby and is open about it, it’s not his primary artistic outlet and he’s frequently said he does it for fun first and foremost.   To the...

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,...

MTNS – Waves

It's quite rare I get sent an E.P and I'm genuinely stuck on which track I want to feature but it does happen and the Like a Stone EP  from Brisbane based Australian Trio MTNS is one of those occasions.   From the minute I first put it on two tracks jumped out at me, Waves and Slow Motion they are both absolutely wonderful tracks. I'm going to opt for Waves as the feature but regardless you...

Kauf – Regrowth LP

So regular readers will know we've long been fans of Kauf and his melancholic melodic emotion-laden brand of Electonica and finally we have an album and surprise surprise it's quite wonderful.   Regrowth as an LP is that rare thing in modern music a cohesive journey. In a time where, I'd say, 99% of albums feel pieced together after the fact an album like this where it's clearly been curated to fill out the details of a...
