BEATS / HIP HOP

Cat. Number: ZEN205

**Includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label** Kelis switches to a Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio) produced glossy sixth album dripping with funk, soul, gospel and Afrobeat influences. 'Food' is the equivalent of comfort eating, heavily informed by a nostalgic impression of the music Kelis grew up with - her father was a Jazz musician - and therefore flush with "proper" instruments accompanied by some electronic embellishments just to let you know it was actually released in 2014. It revolves around an eponymous theme relating to her studies as a saucier - she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu c… Read more

The effect of these contrasts - in the hands of Mike Polizze - touches buzzing pleasure centres for these listeners with every lick; people who like rock songs and like to sing along and don’t mind a little dirt for their trouble.

Cat. Number: MID002

**Includes hand-numbered artwork inlay. Edition of 550** The Swedish techno miscreants bang the box on two wobbly acid joints for Midlight Records. A-side 'Absorb' rides a jagged but frothy acid groove until the lines start smudging to mind-bending, discordant effect in the final throes. B-side, 'Instant Transport' nudges the tempo up for a more suspenseful, driving acid roll.

"Known for their psychedelic fuzz masterpiece Lazy Bones, this is another side of Witch. This time around the band created another masterpiece, but this time with a whole new sound capturing the spirit of the early 80’s, and changing political atmosphere in Africa with a perfect blend of MJ/Jake Solo boogie, and Fleetwood Mac AOR moves.

Cat. Number: SUS004V

Squashed house and idiosyncratic electronica from Brit-in-Melbourne and RBMA graduate, Andy Donnelly aka Kloke for Brooklyn's Styles Upon Styles. 'Sea Levels' comes across like a hazy recollection of urban UK dancefloor styles and IDM recounted thru a skunk-addled mind, bumping between washed-out jazz-house on 'Deep City' to the BoC-like reverie 'Mayfield' and the blunted 2-step of 'Ritual' to the radar-evading, arpeggiated techno shunt of 'Room With A View' and an Actress/Zomby-like bag of writhing paranoia in 'Unlearning'.

Spellbinding, exotic-minded percussive house workouts from Berlin's very highly regarded Acido crew. Phillip Gelberg and SVN (AU, XI, Tase, Dreesvn) on the buttons for this trio of mellow and gently insistent grooves shimmying from rippling tabla timbres and breezy Pacific chords to bumpier chops coming off like a more organic, placid analogue of Sensate Focus and over to an extended B-side locked into a slowly unfolding moire of tabla and warm, cheek-kissing chords to sink right into.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: ACIDO016

Delectable deep house excursion from Acido regular Dresvn, backed with a super fly Sotofett jungle remix. The A-side is one of those pearls that could happily work at 33 or 45 rpm, although it's probably supposed to be at 45rpm - alloying a nimble disco bass riff with stray analogue dust mites and wheezing dub electronics to genuinely psychoactive effect. Flipside Sotofett gets his flex on with a proper display of breakbeat chicanery harking back to the infectiously loose torsion and accelerated culture of classic AGCG and Remarc styles, but with an up-to-the-minute canniness. So dope.
