Deeply enigmatic house from southside Chitown '89 rescued from cassette tape by Theo Parrish's Sound Signature label. Chronologically, this session would have proceeded Leron Carson's brilliant 'Red Lightbulb Theory '87-'88', which was also reissued by the label a few years ago (oh sh*t, five years ago?!) and stylistically charts similar, mysterious house terrain, this time with his pal Dion Wilson. A-side they put down the kicks and kinky 727 drums for an attuned display of kaotic harmonies and virtuosic acid squiggle bound to blow some minds 25 years later; B-side they arrive… Read more

Kassem Mosse brings his surprise debut album to land with minimal fuss or fanfare on Workshop. In case you don't know, Kassem is responsible for some of the finest, most definitive techno-house productions of the last decade, racking up soulful, forward-facing anthems for FXHE, Trilogy Tapes and Nonplus and, of course Berlin's Workshop, which remain firm favourites in myriad DJs boxes. For his low-key debut album, he sticks to the shadows and the eerier, sensual spaces between house, techno and electronica, finding a graded mid-ground between midnight Detroit beatdown and European electronic… Read more

Cat. Number: TTT021

Devastating bruk house badness from the inimitable Dave Huismans for Will Bankhead's Trilogy Tapes. This is ostensibly some of the straightest dancefloor material in the considerable AMUS cache, but beneath the surface lies some of the canniest, whirring groove mechanics totally primed for dancers and DJs with abilities. A-side 'Fortress (The Hague, 2005)' slams out a proper Shake-style Detroit groove kinked with coiled drums, mad trills and freaky samples, before 'Caustic Network' slips down a few gears to a 105bpm chug tricked with frothy acid wiggle. B-side, the pendulous 'Kovaxxxt' show… Read more

Cat. Number: ID004

Killer, free-styling machine dub murderers from the incognito Itinerant Dubs duo. Both sides are loose, whacked-out riddim trips rubbing traces of hip hop and weird, wavey electronics into skeletal steppers' frameworks. The longer side, 'Non Material Space' weighs up a sparse, rocking machine rhythm with dippy scratches, rub-a-dub bassline and off-kilter vocal to waist-charming effect, whilst the flipside fires the stepping techno dub of 'Last Snare (1st Mix)' coming off like some mad Shake or Pepe Braddock groove, before easing off with the juggled FX of 'Dub Echo'. Flash it!

*Fourth limited edition, self-released 7" from Kim Deal!* So this one's a total treat for Breeders obsessives - the A-side here 'The Root' seems to basically revolve around the same chords that made 1992's "Don't Call Home' such a total fxcking classic - except with completely reworked chorus and lyrics - it's a total gem. While we're at it actually - the Safari EP never seems to get mentioned that much but, jeez - isn't it just an absolute masterpiece? Anyway, the B-side 'Range on Castle' finds Kim in a more countrified and contemplative mood, it's almost like the last 20 years never happened… Read more

Highly impressive new developments from Ben Vida, featuring percussive virtuoso Tyondai Braxton, and vocals by Sara Magenheimer. The latest in a hot streak of intriguing Vida releases for PAN, Alku, and Future Audio Graphics, 'Slipping Control' derives from a text piece 'Tztztztzt Î Í Í….' which he wrote and was subsequently published as a book by Shelter Press.

Finland's Kim Ripatti aka Mono Junk returns in a serious way with this monstrous warehouse session for the Skudge White series. Since the release of his incredible 'Channel B' 12" the analogue fetishising producer's been noticeably absent from the release schedule, save the odd 12" here and there. Safe to say, he's back in force, charging up a droning darkside acid missile titled 'Electric Chair' on the A-side, and an effective industrial juggernaut named 'Jupiter Acid' on the flip, plus two other more melodic numbers. It's f**king life-affirming stuff.

**White vinyl. Edition of 500** Matt Hill dons his Umberto costume for an extended revision of 'The Child', backed with a disco-readied Silvio remix. The extended version sustains the noirish Giallo / Carpenter vibes for 12 minutes with slow bass throbs and cold, chilling synth atmospheres and Silvio's mix steps up a gear for a more fluid, slinky dancefloor momentum embellished with spaciously layered synthlines for sexy midnight effect.

A touch of reel house class from Willie Burns as Daywalker and Entro Senestre aka C.F. on the mighty L.I.E.S. It's all about the deeply romantic A-side, 'Supersonic Transport', with its sweeping, tiered synth layers and effortless swing jack momentum, but the B-side is none-too-shabby either, with the introspective ambience, purring groove and sampled monologue of 'Bulldog Named Carl', and a slow-mo celestial arpeggios of the closing 'Untitled' cut.

Up top they juggle a choppy Miss Jay vocal into staccato stabs on a strobing, acidic synthline and all-important kick/clap syncopation to technoid, haughty effect. Downtown, 'Werk'd It' blazes a trail to the centre of the 'floor with tightly edited, almost minimalist drums and stabs laced with "pussy" and "work it" stabs to drive 'em wild. Use with caution.

**Housed in beautiful letter-pressed jacket. Edition of 350** Belgium's idiosyncratic Vlek label ventures further out with their first release of 2014; a potent suite of hypnagogic drones and keening, bittersweet ambient dissonance by Brussels-based Aymeric de Tapol. It's a welcome introduction to a new artist, for us at least, who's been releasing music since 2005. Over six tracks he calmly unfolds a personalised sound world taking in ghostly minimalism on 'Future Flute', and wistful folk-drone maybe best compared with Natural Snow Buildings in 'Lumiere D'hotel', whilst 'Soleil Levant'… Read more
