TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: WAR122

**12" in screen-printed sleeve** Distorted disco-techno badness from the Wargames series. Acting wild-eyed and frazzled like some Bunker escapee, the unknown operator dispenses three fierce club trax with style, hauling the 'floor from blown-out Italo-Chicago arpeggios and extreme flange on the A-side, and over to a pair of more twysted and tracky dubs, one sounding like a a mutant Ra.H joint, the other like a vintage Unit Moebius jack attack. Sick DJ gear.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: NMBRS40

Studio Barnhus co-boss Kornél Kovács on a dope house flex for Numbers. With 'Radio Koko', the Stockholm-based producer and DJ demonstrates a deep and colourful knowledge of classic and current house and techno mechanics with four tracks of characterful grooves. They're full of 'floor-charming fake-outs and kinks, from the filtered cocktail of B-more breaks and horn stabs chopped and swung about disco bass and strings in 'Lighthouse', to the diamond-cut freestyle house slam of 'Pantalón' - proper anthem material! - thru the hip hop-cooled swing of 'Gangsta', and the Joe-style drum juggling of 'Malon'. Bit of a no brainer for the party, this one. TIP!

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: MMCD48

Debonaire deep house class from Fred Peterkin, a.k.a. the Mariana trench of modern American house music. Appearing under a new handle, FP-Oner, the NYC native ploughs a fertile field of house music in 'Oner 5', one nourished on jazz, ambient electronics and African rhythms and subtly steeled with a slinky, minimal techno backbone. As the follow-up to his widely-adored 2010 release, 'The Incredible Adventures of Captain P', it follows his well-honed instincts with a refined sense of production economy and heads-down momentum but, not at the expense of his lusher intimations, clearly expressing a posit… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: MORD018

Berlin's Sleeparchive furnishes Mord with four cuts of prime bleep techno. No messing about here - it's pure techno - stoking the club with perfectly paced ice-drip bleeps and thundering momentum in the first track, beside a body-scanning 2nd part, and absolutely slaying us with the psychotomimetic cadence and raw noise stabs of the 3rd cut, before locking in the deliquescent chimes and guttural bass jabs of the 4th track.

THE POP GROUP / SLEAFORD MODS - Nations / Face To Faces, FREAKS R US
Split show-down from Mark Stewart's arch agitators, The Pop Group, and their modern antecedents, Sleaford Mods. On the front, The Pop Group provide the crisply enunciated and mannered vocals of 'Nations' from their 'Citizen Zombie' LP, set to skinny post-punk drum machine patter and dubbed metallic guitar klang. Flipside, The Sleaford Mods jam down a raw version of 'Face to Faces' from their upcoming album, loaded with the sort of cutting wit and non RP delivery which they've built a small empire on.

Shades of lustin' NYC house from the former member of Hercules & Love Affair, backed with dope remixes. The exotic, orientalist house-pop of 'Creature' serves much to work with, spun out between Kim's own Chez N-Trent-styled remix, to the rolling tribal acid sensuality of two mixes by a/jus/ted; mystic house and techno mixes by Simoncino; and the tightly tucked square bass funk licks of Hot Creations and Rinse FM's Richy Ahmed remix.
