MJAZZLP010S – Justice & Metro – Oxymoron LP Sampler – 10″ Vinyl
A journey into connective contrast, the Oxymoron LP is Justice & Metro’s best collaborative work to date. A refined exploration of self, history and the unmistakable MJazz sound. Paradoxically both future and retro, a true oxymoron. Support from DJ Flight, Blocks, ASC, Sam KDC, Code and Jason Os. “The Oxymoron LP is a total nod to our early days in rave in dodgy clubs and shady house parties in and around Luton and London. The sounds being played were a heady mix of lots of different genres, Acid, Breakbeat, House, Hardcore, Hip Hop were all played back to back in no order but somehow they all went, they maybe shouldn’t have but they did, dark and light, bitter sweet, oxymorons in sound.” – Justice & Metro

MODULE014 – Stray – Ginseng Smash / Akina – 10″ Vinyl
After a year away the Modulations imprint returns with something extra special to make up for lost time. With an abundance of electronic talent to choose being part of the Critical Music clique, this next release draws in longtime associate Stray for two huge experimental drum & bass bangers! ‘Ginseng Smash’ is a pure old-skool vibe fest as Stray launches into it from the off layering on the breaks of yesteryear while a heavily disguised vocal sample draws us into the mix. Proper sub bass rolls on while the edits come thick and fast in this genius piece of retro jungle drum & bass for 2013. You need this!! ‘Akina’ plays on a half-time electro break full of hyper energized vocals that lend themselves perfectly to the current trap-infused dance floors of late. Clever jungle edits reset the pace interspersed throughout making this yet another unique slice of Stray studio sorcery.

a Stray – Ginseng Smash
b Stray – Akina




UM012 – Sunchase – Nathnennia – 12″ Vinyl
Utopias 12th release brings two new artists to the roster. Sunchase’s ‘Nathnenia’ is a wonderfully constructed piece of minimalistic piano ambience done at 170 bpm. The flip sees exciting new talent Detail fresh from releases on Med School and Commerical Suicide, come with a tribal dancefloor rhythm called ‘Green Rain’. This one has been destroying raves, loved by both jump up heads and dark soldiers alike. This 12″ shows that the Ukraine can come with some special music and continues Utopia’s tradition of having two sides on fire.

MEDI069 – Mala – Changes (James Blake Harmonimix) – 12″ Vinyl
Mala received an email from James Blake saying “I’ve just done a remix”. This Harmonimix was attached. After almost 3 years of only Mala and James playing this piece of music as an exclusive dubplate to their audiences in dances across the world, they’ve finally decided to give his remix a release. Do not sleep on this!

PPRO19V – Photek – Two – 12″ Vinyl
After February’s vinyl release of Pyramid, a second carefully chosen track from Photek’s KU:PALM album is now available on wax. The Metalheadz-y strings and nervous energy of Shape Charge hark back to Photek’s minimalist doom jungle of the mid 90’s, yet the stomping drum programming and dizzily phasing synths show Photek with his feet firmly in the 21st century. Arguably the biggest track from KU:PALM, Pyramid receives a remix here from London’s Mr Beatnick. The hugely respected producer, DJ and journalist originally from a decidedly Hip Hop background has blossomed over the last 18 months into an accomplished jazz infused house producer, demonstrated by Synthetes and Sun Goddess on Semtek’s Don’t Be Afraid imprint. His remix of Pyramid launches the track into even spacier territory, with the addition of his own cosmic acid bassline and sultry 4×4 groove. In 2013 Mr Beatnick looks set to finally get the props he deserves.

SEPTICCD001 – Shackleton – Music For The Quiet Hour / The Drawbar Organ EPs – CD x 2
Finally back in stock! 2 x CD in gatefold sleeve For those who want to know the background, it is something like this. I bought an Italian drawbar organ module around two years ago. Apparently Italian organs from that period had a bad reputation but I was so happy with it that it appeared on most of the tracks I had been working on. I thought I had an album together and was supposed to get it mastered on the day after the mastering session for the Pinch and Shackleton release on Honest Jons (sometime towards the end of Summer 2011). I had also been working on a 12″ of more spacious music to go with that album as a limited vinyl 12″. By the time that I finished the music though, the tracks for that 12″ became so long for that I couldn’t contain them to two sides of a vinyl. This is what became Music For The Quiet Hour album.

CCBCD001 – Various Artists – Paris Club Music – Volume 1 – CD x 2
Paris is back and it’s no longer pumping to the filtered sound of disco house. Instead, a ‘90s generation have come of age born into the monochromatic shadow of Mathieu Kassovitz’s classic film, La Haine. A world of internal tensions cracking the ground for new shoots to appear from a vibrant street culture that’s en Seine in the membrane, raised as much on global bass and hip-hop’s freakiest mutations as the distant orbit of Chicago and Detroit. You can hear it in the music of ClekClekBoom, the Paris-based label which began in 2007 as a website releasing baile funk from Rio’s favelas but now serves up its own home-grown ghetto grooves. Built around a core of twenty-something DJs and producers, spearheaded by French Fries (who runs the label alongside Ministre X and The Boo), their youthful energy has forged boundary breaking ambitions. And as ClekClekBoom Recordings reaches its first birthday at the start of 2013, its dedication to quality and longevity is evident in a commitment to vinyl, alongside digital, releases, a box fresh aesthetic courtesy of artistic director The Boo, their fortnightly Boomcast show, attracting like-minded guests from Lunice to Bok Bok, and now this compilation – split between exclusive new tracks (CD1) and a summary of the label’s first eight releases (CD2). Stretching from blunted, purple drank stained vocals, to splinters of the ever-evolving hardcore continuum, ClekClekBoom’s musical ADD captures the soul of modern urban life, reassembling elements of juke, garage, house, techno and other machine cut sounds, the product of the first home-schooled internet generation who have left the old world mindset behind. Originally released by Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird label, French Fries’ ‘Yo Vogue VIP’ opens the trove of new treasure, owing as much to cult documentary Paris Is Burning as his native city, its hormonally altered appearance scoring tens across the board. His second contribution, ‘Southside’, flips to raw Chicago house re-wired and re-swung, analogue rawness in a digital era, while Manaré’s jacking ‘Riddle’ encapsulates ClekClekBoom’s lean, fatless dancefloor accuracy. And that’s just the start, The Town drawing transatlantic inspiration for stripped-down roller ‘Dice’, Jean Nipon bringing the grime dread on ‘Coming At You’ and Coni taking things deep on the tracky ‘Missing You Nire’, Ministre X signing off in an explosion of colour with Purple synth workout ‘Kobe’. It’s this cast that makes up the label’s past highlights on CD2, with two exceptions. New Zealand duo Chaos In The CBD, honorary Parisians, turn out the roughly hewn hip house cut ‘Slab’, a lowdown booty-shaker that detonated dancefloors at the end of 2012. Closer to home though is Bambounou, recently snapped up by Berlin technarchists Modeselektor for his debut album ‘Orbiting’ on their 50 Weapons label. His collaboration with French Fries, ‘Hugz’, an explicit, voice modulating two-step anthem, lit up online message boards months before it launched ClekClekBoom as a record label proper. Solo effort ‘Night’, meanwhile, awarded DJ Mag’s Killer of the Month when it was released as a single, pumps out immense waves of club sub pressure, a calling card that neatly sum up ClekClekBoom’s modus operandi. – Joe Roberts (DJ MAG)

ACLBL008 – Lrusse & Bleecker – Peier Field EP – 12″ Vinyl
Audio Culture tap back into the creative pool of Bristol for a collaboration between two new alter egos: Lrusse & Bleecker. Lrusse is the new solo project of Ed Bayling, of Behling & Simpson the bristolian champions of slow-house burners, while Bleecker is the more 4×4 driven guise of fellow bristolian Wedge. The result of this collaborative effort are three tracks of chunky, slow, heavy analogue vibes with an abundance of atmospherics.

WB011 – Innershades – That Girl EP – 12″ Vinyl
That Girl, produced by our recent discovery Innershades, opens with a repeated voice sample and a nostalgic pad, just to drop one minute later into one of the rawest hard hitting house tracks you’ll see around in a while. Hotflush’s Locked Groove gives the original track an acidic twist halved with his signature top-class deep house production skills. As if that isn’t enough, the B-side is followed by a simple-yet-effective remix from Ukraine’s very own Vakula who provides what seems a purely energetic techno cut right up to the point when the killer snare comes in. Early DJ support from Erol Alkan, Julio Bashmore, Ben UFO (Boiler Room/ Louche night), ND Baumecker (Ostgut Ton/Panorama Bar) and Red D (FCL)

IDLE018 – Outboxx – Outboxx – 12″ Vinyl x 2
It’s been exciting to watch Outboxx take shape over the past two years, chasing their vision for a more meaningful kind of deep house music via Jake’s intense attention to detail, Matt’s way with the keys and Naomi’s arresting voice. It’s been a steady progression, reaching out to select labels but keeping things largely close to home on Idle Hands, Immerse and BRSTL, while their tracks have developed in ever more confident strides. They make perfect sense as a Bristol act, but not because of an externally idealised vision of a Bristol house music scene, but more because their music taps into the same spirit of adventure and soulfulness that has always characterised the most treasured of all music from the city. Like many before them, Outboxx have a gift for capturing emotion and anchoring it with just the right amount of rudeness. It feels like the right time then for an album from the pair, and upon listening to it you can instantly hear why. Afforded the space of a long player, Jake and Matt’s ideas flourish, both more refined and wilder in the same instance. The tempos move from lo-fi downtempo skit to pumped up house, via haunted minimal techno and snappy garage, and yet the shifts seem barely noticeable between the cohesive sound that they have formed. Most importantly, it’s a record that sounds completely out on its own, marrying together disparate sounds and rhythms and making them sound natural. It’s a great testament to how far Outboxx have come in short space of time, and an equally exciting pointer to what might come in the future.

PRCSD005 – 1DERL& – Intertwined EP – 12″ Vinyl
The album was a kick start. Now itʼs time for the next level. 1DERL&ʼs Reflection LP gets touched by four international techno heroes and revives as Processedʼs first vinyl EP. All-bass-master Kamikaze Space Programme adds some purified peak time punch to “Rayʼs House”, while Russiaʼs own Unbalance delivers an ultimate future version of the same track. Mattias Fridell is on a big room mission pulling the hidden depths of “Section Zero” and the albumʼs sunrise anthem “Vaporized” gets postponed to early cloudy afternoon by Ness. Adventurous journey through the borderless techno.

ASC returns to Samurai Red Seal in his first release for the label since 2012′s ‘Out Of Sync’ & ‘Lost Sync’ series.

MINDSET014 – GoldFFinch – MINDSET014 – 12″ Vinyl
A powerful and unique musical voice from Brussels, Belgium, goldFFinch have launched themselves swiftly to the forefront of their chosen electronic music style with a series of unmissable dancefloor weapons on labels ‘Numbers’, ‘Dirty Bird’, ‘Saigon Recordings’, ‘Airflex Labs’ and ‘Audio Culture’. Yoann and Gilles, the duo behind goldFFinch, have let themselves be inspired by current movements in electronic music and have worked to redefine it in their own unique way. One of their trademarks is stuttering vocal samples worked indecipherably into their own groove, a skill built from their formative years listening to Hip Hop. With this vocal technique as a distinct signature laid on their tracks, the core of their music brings together the best of the German Electronic sound, the funkiest of the first Detroit Techno wave and the cutting edge music production of the 22nd century together in one funk fuelled musical style. With continuous support from Akkord, Loefah, Boddika, Claude Von Stroke, Oneman, Jackmaster, 2562, Midland Sound and Mary Anne Hobbs, and their subsequent releases on high profile labels… goldFFinch are rapidly gaining popularity and credibility with a constantly widening audience. Barely into their third year of existence as a musical entity, what goldFFinch have achieved in this short time is impressive to say the least. 2013 looks to be another exciting year for this mysterious duo who have focused on letting their incredible music do the talking.

HF040 – George FitzGerald – Thinking Of You / Nighttide Lover – 12″ Vinyl
Following acclaimed excursions on Hypercolour (‘Needs You EP’) and Will Saul’s Aus Music (‘Child EP’) last year, George FitzGerald has returned to his Hotflush home for the first time since 2011. Premiering in FitzGerald’s debut Radio 1 Essential Mix last month as part of the ‘2013’s Future Stars’ series, ‘Thinking Of You’ dropped as a Beaport exclusive on 18th March, and is now set for full physical release complete with the equally compelling ‘Nighttide Lover’ on the flip. With over 100k Soundcloud plays prior to release and a fixture in the Beatport top 40 ever since, ‘Thinking of You’ needs no going-over. Its b-side counterpart, however, is one of FitzGerald’s rawest cuts yet. Immediate and punchy with no less of his emotive trademark, ‘Nighttide Lover’ is every bit the sweaty hit to usher in the Ibiza season. The last twelve months have been extremely busy for FitzGerald as he continues to capture the attention of industry heads and fans alike with his refined and emotive homegrown club music. Releasing music on his regular home Hotflush, as well as Will Saul’s Aus Music imprint and the acclaimed Hypercolour stable, not to mention his own burgeoning ManMakeMusic imprint, FitzGerald’s flourishing discography continues to grow steadily but impeccably.
