New records

Written by: 22 February 2011 3 Comments

To distract myself from the horrible situation down in Chch at the moment, here’s a few of the new releases I’m liking the sounds of. Juno or youtube links where possible.

First up, you can’t really argue with Millions of Moments re-release of ‘wallshaker’ by Aaron Carl, who sadly passed away last year. I think this one is a favourite of Micks.. The great original is accompanied by a midnight dub, and a beautifully deep sounding dub from ‘Sven’, presumably Sven Weissemann who is doing some lovely stuff lately.

Kassem Mosse has a new release on Workshop, and as usual with work from him and workshop it is sounding impressive. Mosse has become one of my favourite producers over the past year or so and this is more solid work.

Another guy I’m always on the look for releases for is Tevo Howard, who has a nice stripped down but melodic style to his deep house. ‘The age of compassion’ came out on buzzin’ fly last month which is a big label and hopefully a sign of more recognition for his productions.

Sneaking in from last year is House of Jezebel (aka Legowelt) with his take on ‘love and happiness’. It’s a sample that’s been used so many times, yet this raw, old school sounding production just does it for me..

One more house thing is Lauer’s excellent release from Robert Johnson last month.. Both these tracks remind me of New Order for some reason, perhaps the melodies and old school sounding drums..

Over in the increasingly popular post dubsteppy/nu garagey world, things are ticking along nicely too..
Really enjoyed sepalcure’s first 12″ last year on hotflush. This new one’s sounding good too

Staying on hotflush, the new George Fitzgerald with remix from Scuba is nice

Hackman is a newish uk funky producer who’s stuff I always check of late.. Interesting how some of this more mellow end of the uk post garage/funky thing is starting to meld with more trad tech house.

Julio Bashmore also successfully pushes my deep housey/steppy buttons with his new release.

Lovely stuff from 2562 who apparently made his entire new album constructed from samples of old disco records!

Over in more techno territory, Mike Dehnert comes through with another reliably enjoyable record

Delsin come through with some lush detroit stuff

And finally, Mike Parker and Donato Dozzy come heavy and hypnotic with a new Prologue.. Can’t listen to this without imagine it booming out over the mountains in Japan, and I’m already a bit excited about that becoming a reality.

    Cheers for tidying it up (I assume it was you). One day I’ll learn how to add pics properly!
