Six warm and melodic addendae to Dntel's 'Human Voice' album for Leaving Records. But even if you're no DNTEL die-hard, there's nice stuff to be uncovered in the deep and frothy acid house reduction, 'Bordeom' and the deep fried circuitry of 'Goonie House'.
Living up to his unrivalled reputation as one of the most versatile and capable producers in electronic music, Mark Pritchard rolls off two of his most deadly riddims for Mala's Deep Medi stable. If you've not caught one of Mark's releases as Harmonic 313, Jedi Knights, Reload or Global Communications you need to go and do some revision mate, but if you've been keeping track of the last 20 years of dance music you'll know what we're talking about.

Wild EDM/Dancehall fusion backed with a dead sweet Samrai & Fox remix, scything Kush Aroa version, and slow-bumping Love Taps remix.

The Polish village of Stara Rzeka and its surrounding countryside were devastated by a huge tornado on the 14th of July 2012. Stara Rzeka is where musician Kuba Ziołek, who adopted the name as one of several artistic projects, spends his summers, and the morning following the storm Ziołek was present to witness the aftermath. This self-titled piece opens to the crackle of electricity in the air and a distinct impression of menace. The distortion softens, but never truly fades, as it gives way to song;… Read more
