STEVE POINDEXTER - Street Fighter EP, L.A. Club Resource

STEVE POINDEXTER

Street Fighter EP

L.A. Club Resource

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £10.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: LACR016

Delroy Edwards does it again, pulling out four Chicago bangers from the source for his L.A. Club Resource. As with Gene Hunt's 'Freddy's Dead' winner, these cuts were dug from the archives of OG house players, namely Steve Poindexter, Johnny Key and Trackmaster Scott. Uptown, they bat out the hypnotic minimal jack of 'Street Fighter' and lock off a bumpty zinger titled 'Sadaam's Bush'; downtown, they freak with the starkly raw swerve of 'Cats', and the reel old skool twang of 'Blazing Saddles', riding a cantering groove with splashing hook and killer rimshot play.

**Hand-stamped centre labels and screen-printed jacket** Superb rear-guard techno David Coccagna a.k.a. Chaperone for Philly's Great Circles. Teamed with a trio of ace remixes from Thug Entrancer,Hero/Victom and Westov Temple, the original 'Pond' tracks take in screwed, druggy boogie à la Actress' Thrillers with 'Get Ghost' beside a spectral morph of EBM and gloomy Detroit with 'Cough Into Auditorium Can't Tell Me To Nod Now', or a slopped and noisy take on Omar-S' little known trick, 'Jit' in 'All Your Emergencies'. Remixing, Westov Temple turns in a dreamy Suspended Mix of 'Get Ghost', complemented… Read more

Nous

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £7.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: US007

The rather intriguing O. Xander debuts with a ghetto-raw clutch of grooves for Nous, backed with a psyched-out Karen Gwyer remix. Opening up with a darkside vocal intro, 'Lovers Theme' dispenses blunt bass roll and crack'd drums like something from Delroy Edwards' 'Teenage Tapes' before the brooding 'Jupiter Jam' catches a a reel ghetto gothic sound and 'Integrity and Intensity' dices with an adroit swing-jack mutation. With 'Dirac Sea' he really takes it to the bare bones 'Face Drums' style, which Karen Gwyer duly brightens up and expands with chiming melodic arrangement.

ACID TEST

Format_dot_vinyl2LP // £13.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: ATLP05

**Gatefold double vinyl includes download** In which the RHCP guitarist synchs ten or so machines thru a small mixer into a CD burner… His first Trickfinger album arrives with some degree of trust implied by the reputable Acid Test label but, is it any good? If you're a committed Rephlexian it may all seem very familiar, perhaps even derivative. On the other hand, if you're coming from the RHCP angle or most others, he's got a nimble grasp of his machines and manages to apply a distinguished "musicality" to melodic arrangements which many will appreciate, while other acid vegan types may find too fancy.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: FRAGIL14

Superb 12" featuring the gritty techno-house debut by Cosmijn and a buy-on-sight Marcellus Pittman remix. With 'Drops' Cosmijn's sound lands somewhere to the deeper end of the Ilian Tapes breakbeat/house styles, all salty hi-hats and writhing, rolling bass in swing mode, while D-troit's Pittman gives masterclass in minimalist subtlety on the flipsiude, dropping all the right drums at the right times before giving up a gut-massaging sub-bass tug and the kind of swirling chords that we could happily drown in.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: JD33

Far Out Recordings mark 25 years in the game with these Theo Parrish and Daz-I-Kue (Bugz In The Attic) remixes of Marcos Valle classics. Theo's version of '1985' is a seductively laidback burner wiggling with warm organ plumage and stop/start shuffle drums underlined by a billowing B-line that only fully reveals itself after a few minutes. Vibes. Flipside, Daz-I-Kue bumps the tempo gauge up with a more insistent samba flush of cowbells, keys and squelchy bass funk for his take on 'Prefixio'.

IVVVO credits the edit properly with his cracking 'Mark Leckey Made Me Hardcore' tribute. It's not the first time he's used a sample from the collaged soundtrack to Leckey's cultishly adored 'Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore' video installation - they've cropped up in a number of his recent 12"s - and neither is he the only one to do so - Jamie xx and Neil Landstrumm have both done the same - but he is the first to really make it explicit and deadly. A-side 'Raised' retains the dream, time-suspending quality of the soundtrack, but brilliantly juxtaposed with booming kicks and spine-grabb… Read more

Cat. Number: VLEK18

**A welcome return from Belgium's Sagat, back with his dusty, canted rhythm trips on the most excellent Vlek.** In each piece he teases our sense of rhythmic anticipation with grid-twisted grooves, from the wickedly schizoid jag of 'Melt' flipping between honking stabs and serene chords, thru the cyber-tribal 2-step zone of 'Body' to blunted Andy Stott styles with the gaseous smudge of 'Earth' punctuated by woodblock cracks, or the slow motion ambient elegance of 'organs'.

Featuring Rune's first new original material in a while, these cuts follow remix work for artists as diverse as Coldplay, Monkey Safari and Henry Krinkle.

**Wrong Steps makes more smooth-yet-gauzy house moves on his 2nd EP for Huntleys + Palmers.** It's a right viber, sashaying via chiming rhodes, silty electronics and padded kicks thru 'NTYS' to something approximating DJ Sprinkles on Main Street in the depths of 'ASCN'. The effortless elegance of 'RNME' hints at the European poise of the Villalobos/Loderbauer duo, and 'Grey' eases off the drums for the first half, segueing from spidery electronics and melting chords into a bluesy halfstep shuffler. Sweet.

Another brilliant slab of viscous yet sparky house nostalgia from Andrew Morrison a.k.a. The Cyclist. In a crowded scene of tape-smudge explorers The Cyclist leads the peloton by virtue of his fudgy funk flex and knack for memorable melodic hooks. It's earned him much praise to date from the likes of Fact magazine among others, and is set to increase his credits with the 'Hot House EP', spooling from deep-fried Nu Groove skank-house styles in 'Heart Of Stone', thru the blues-worn charm of 'Hot House' and the loosely tribal dreams of 'Aurora (Shortwave Mix)', to a melting, slow-mo highlight wit… Read more

Cat. Number: RHD-020JGCZ

**Gorgeous double-sided silk-screened sleeves designed by Cosmo Knex** Wafting outta Amsterdam, one half of Juju & Jordash Jordan GCZ trips a spaceways house vibe on Rush Hour's superb 'No' Label. On the A-side's 'Lushlyfe Slap' he takes all the time he needs to tease a lather of blips, chiming keys and curdled synth around a deliquescent, beckoning bassline. B-side, he lets 'Lushlyfe' soar eastwards with silvery flutes and ascendant drones illuminating the way for a jagged motorik pulse and refractive harmonies, where 'Lushlyfe Birds' releases a menagerie of modular motifs describing avian motion with a calligraphic freehand. Aye, it's lush, alright.

PAID REACH (KASSEM MOSSE) - Fair Trade Dark / Colddrinksnreverse, Paid Reach
Gunnar Wendell a.k.a. Kassem Mosse gets his electro grind on with the first Paid Reach 7". Working in far less defined territory than usual, both sides give room for his experimental tendencies to explore singular ideas. 'Fair Trade Dark' toils an austere, blunted bleep groove sounding something like one of Sleeparchive's Civil Defence Programme dispatches, whereas the B-side - in what is a first to our eyes, at least - runs a reverse 7" vinyl cut of the backwards groove, 'Colddrinksinreverse'.

Proper ruffneck slam-jams from NPLGNN for Phonica's promising new OKNO imprint. '1925' arrives 6 months or so after the Napolitan artist ran amok in the ballroom with 'Sigma / Tau' for Where To Now?, which piqued the attention of everyone from Ben UFO to Low Jack in the process. For this session he keeps the bugged-out production values intact, but switches to a more rave-nous style, cold killing it with a sizzling acid brukbeat twyst called 'Ravers Are Still Living' on the A-side, before pulling out his chewiest kicks, flinty hi-hats and railgun claps for the B-side's 'Break On The Rhythm', and brin… Read more

Back once again for TTT, DJ Spider & Marshallito conduct three tribal New York techno rituals. On the A-side they uproot the soiled and soggy shunt of 'Nuclear Winter', matching what sounds like ancient Latin tongues with marching rhythms and mystic jazz samples, and a more blunted take on Industrial Strength styles with 'Geiger Counter'. B-side is best of all though, pulling off a proper early '90s NYC sound with the zipping rave stabs and warehouse thunder of 'Zero Point'.
