Adoration

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HOS003

**Heavy vinyl edition of 150** "Portland vocal house roots duo Gemini Lion is an ongoing collaboration between soul-singer J. Green and SILK staple producer A. Kalin (Temples, Polonaise, Finesse). Adoration, their debut, pickpockets from various downtown wardrobes for a multi-culti vibe that’s equal parts party monster, ballroom strut, and melancholic sweat. Green’s voice is a rich and dexterous presence, waxing after romantic obsessions and delineating queer terminology, while Kalin’s lean bass lines and percussion sequences shuffle and flow through fluid, reflective states. Their commitment … Read more

Cat. Number: BS009

Sidelong tech-house minimalism from another new name on the Blank Slate label. Leading on from his contribution to Blank Slate 006, 'I Want You' beckons with tactile jazz motifs and frayed, ghostly tech-house framework; 'By Thge Way You Look At Things' percolates field recordings, frothing drums and chopped voices in a patchwork of Villalobos-like groove and intercepted Sublime Frequencies.

N (Vinyl Edition)

BLAST FIRST PETITE

Format_dot_vinylLP // £9.99

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: PTYT084

**Now available on vinyl** 'N' is the first full length release from motorik Japanese trio Nisennenmondai to be licensed outside of their home country. Which is kinda odd, considering their reputation as an utterly indomitable force within live music circles over the last ten years or so. Anyway, 'N' is good an introduction as any of their slight harder-to-find gear, charging up 40 minutes of bladesaw guitars, pounding drums and bass under pressure of keening dissonance. The results, split over three tracks ranging between 11 and 14 minutes each, are irresistibly mesmerising, yoking the lessons of Neu!, This Heat or DNA to a more streamlined yet uncannily fierce effect.

Glasgow legend Dave Clark a.k.a. Sparky on a misty-eyed electro-techno mission for Rubadub's own label. A-side gives a bow to the Innovator, Derrick May with gorgeous kaotic string pads and tuffened techno breaks twisted with enough character to really make it Sparky's own sound, while B-side delivers a more percolated take on similar elements, crammed with nuff detail and tweaky, sweaty funk to get it all done within those shockingly short club opening hours in Scotland (how on earth do they manage?!). Solid.
