New Release Rundown










Click on titles for audio

Swayzak: Speedboat/Burma Heights (Swayzak Recordings) green 12"
A green vinyl reissue of two beautiful deep house cuts from the album "Snowboarding In Argentina."

VA: Picking O'er The Bones (Mordant Music) CD
A compilation of the Mordant vinyl releases thus far, plus some new tracks. This is deep cerebral dubstep that is interesting from start to finish.

Scuba: Klinik/Hundreds & Thousands (Hotflush) 12"
"Klinik" resounds inside a melodic dubstep cave and the dubstep-flavored techno of "Hundreds & Thousands" is a good between-the-genres transitional tool.

VA: All Night Long EP1 (Aus Music) 12"
Quality selections from the All Night Long compilation. The B side is musically superb with Shur-i-kan's "Tubular" and Will Saul & Tam Cooper's "Heartwave."

Sons Of The Dragon: The Journey of Qui Nui (Echospace) blue marbled 12"
Although not a standout, this is signature Echospace production prowess that suits both home and club use, and appreciative listeners who want to be enveloped in the swirling dub techno sound. The marbled pressing makes it a delicacy.

Tony Lionni/Radio Slave: Berghain Pt. 1 (Ostgut Ton) 12"
Impeccably crafted house and keys from Tony Lionni and a booming latenight DJ tool/component from Radio Slave. Subwoofer required for true enjoyment.

Skatebard: Sgnelkalb (Digitalo Enterprises) 12"
First vinyl pressing of this synthy techno epic from 2002. The Mental Overdrive 2009 Remix is simultaneously serious, uplifting, and cheeky. This massive slice of wax has officially landed in my crate!
