VEREKER - Flesh And Blood, BERCEUSE HEROIQUE

VEREKER

Flesh And Blood

BERCEUSE HEROIQUE

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £8.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: BERCEUSEHEROIQUE008

**180g wax, mastered at D&M, edition of 300** Vereker's 'Flesh & Blood' is one of THE most vital techno tracks of 2014. On front of his 'Murder License' for Berceuse Heroique 008, it's the first and arguably most powerful in a slew of scene-defining tackle coming from the British-born, American-based producer for L.A. Club Resource and Endangered Species - his hugely promising new label. The scolding A-side rolls out like DJ Rush meets Rowland The Bastard inna Soviet gymnasium - pure 4/4 pressure for those that fxxkin' knows - whilst the flipside yields the sculpted noise incursion of 'Event… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: CCCP010

Randomer bangs a trio of ruff house and techno tricks for Russian Torrent Versions. Largely leaving his bag of saw-off breakbeats at home, the British producer shakes out welting kicks and blistered percussion with a ballroom haughtiness on A-side, 'Side Crack Lung', before 'Fun In The Sun' chews up a roiling square bass line proper bass drum punishment, and gritty chime of 'Odd' comes off like a raw version of Terrence Dixon's most minimal groovers.

SHACKLETON

Deliverance Series No. 1

Woe To The Septic Heart

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £6.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DS1

The master returns with his 3rd EP of serpentine riddims for Woe To The Septic Heart! Working deeper into the synthesis-based approach which yielded the finer electronic timbres of his 'Freezing Opening Thawing' 12", here he's refined the technique to near-Villalobos levels of layered, rhythmelodic intricacy, but of course, all with his inimitable accent. First up, 'Beat His Command' is a dense, blinding display of pointillist percussion and hypnotic chimes laced with flashes of technoid gremlins and white noise explosions. Secondly, 'Vor und zurück' flips that formula for a more … Read more

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £8.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: PRB006

From Kansas via Brooklyn, Huerco S returns with four ferric-drenched psy-house shufflers for Anthony Naples' Proibito label. His first new material since that ace debut album 'Colonial Patterns' and the 'Aphelia's Theme' 12" for Future Times is distinguished by a subtle expansion and concentration of his sound - basslines feel chewier, knotted, and the atmospheres wider, lusher. A-side loads up one piece of decelerated groove and melting kosmiche dub tones, plus a slinky filter shimmy that comes off like a Soundhack inversion. B-side goes heavier with the kicks inna gritted, grungy t… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: BANDURA004

From his home-base in Konotop City, Vakula's 4th 12" on the Badura series surveys five pieces of plush, psychedelic deep house scanning the rolling soul of 'Ukrainian Landscape' and the abstracted, kaotic dub house of 'Electric Spica' on the A-side, before turning downtempo with the fluid momentum of 'Thoughts On The Road' and two Detroit-style beatdown bits.

*Glow in the dark white on white sleeve* Julio Bashmore and Hyetal go mano e mano for the disco on their 3rd Velour 12". It's on Bashmore's Broadwalk label too so you know they mean business. Up top they've got the big rooms locked off, lacing a proper diva holler thru some kinda industrial-disco-tech groove nodding to MMM and Soundhack in finest fashion; down town 'Plato's Retreat' amps the industrial potential for booming basements with razor cut industrial funk drums and body-warping acid undertow. It's a biggun.

Mathew Jonson and The Mole, Peter Van Hoesen, and Blue Hour remix tracks from Tobias.' 'A Series Of Shocks' LP for Ostgut Ton. Canadaians at the controls, Jonson and The Mole give a masterclass in the art of subtle, swinging build with trimmed electro drums and pendulous, scissoring synthlines guaranteed to trap bvodies ont he floor, whereas PvH takes a more atmospheric route with his acidic rework of 'Cursor Item Only' and Blue Hour burns up 'He Said' as an alarming techno romp.

Striking debut hardware jams from Amsterdam's Magnesii for Tom Trago's Voyage Direct series. Considering this is his first release, 'VD Jam #1' sounds like the work of a full fledged producer, from the laidback but driving acid pacing of his title cut to his debonaire Detroit-style house tweakers 'Lava Jam', and 'Van Dyke Island Jam'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: FIT011

FIT Detroit catch Manuel Gonzales at his moodiest on three tracks of dubbed, drifting deep house and techno. The strident bleep techno of 'Wide Eye' starts up thick and heavy before 'Debit' works out the kind of grumbly, thumping MPC wiggle and wayward acid lines that Marcellus Pittman would be proud of. B-side, 'M.S.C.' is by far the most expansive and dreamy cut in his steadily growing cache, fathoming Eraserhead-esque intro before spinning out to the stars with milky, Martian harmonies and a frayed groove that threatens to wobble off axis. Tipped!

MIDLAND / GENERAL LUDD / AUNTIE FLO / JD TWITCH - Autonomous Africa (Vol. 3), Autonomous Africa
Midland's Autonomous Africa gang regroup for a 3rd session, this time accompanied by General Ludd. Midland opens with the raspin' drums, chants and Carl Craig-style progressions of 'Safi' beside General Judd's scuffed 'n skippy Glasgow bassbin killer, 'Burning Mask'. B-side, Auntie Flo captains the soulful, hypnotic vocal and drum percolations of 'Daabi' somewhere between London and Tanzania, and we find JD Twitch at his loosest with the lilting riddmic cadence of 'Maya' making for a dizzy tribal trip. All of the label's profits from sale of this record go to the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania.
