Cat. Number: TTY012

**Includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label** Smooth, party-ready UK house from Cardiff's Bodhi duo following drops for Grizzly and Future Classic. A-side burns up US garage-flavoured vocals and, warm chords and swinging drums on 'I Need You' for the side-parting and air max posse; B-side plays a bit kinkier with the shifty organ stabs and jazz-dusted drums of 'Wuh', and tips out on the slinkier 'Soul Seeker'.

**Edition of 350, mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy** The third release on Sasu Ripatti's eponymous imprint is the first on the label to come from the producer under his better known Vladislav Delay moniker, a complex, high velocity missive. It proceeds his Heisenberg collaboration with Max Loderbauer - Ripatti's partner in the MvO Trio with Moritz Von Oswald - with two tangled, forward-facing riddim attacks as detailed and daring as they are unforgiving. A-side '#5' hurtles on a double-timed meter accelerating his usually sparse aesthetic into denser structures of Juking percolati… Read more

It's been four years since we last heard from them but they now return with "Drop The Vowels", their debut album.

Over eight tracks, Love Cult dominate proceedings with original material and deconstructions of Druss - aka Gnod's Paddy Shine - augmented by a couple of original appearances by the man himself.

Back-breaking, unreleased and early Chicago ghettofunk from a scene original back on the block. Aside from a digital one-off in 2011, South Side's DJ Lil' Tal left his mark on Chicago's booty scene with a string of Dance Mania bangers between 1995-1996. Rodney Bakerr of the legendary Rockin' House records worked with Lil' Tal back then, and upon observing the scene's contemporary influence, saw it was high time the world knew about the tracks his label was sitting on.

UTTU follow up that utter madness from Mumdance with four tracks of 'floor scrambling rave by one half of Lakker, aka Eomac aka EeOo. Veering wilder than his 'Hither, Pappy' 12" for TTT and ruder than the Lakker output, four tracks come off something like Hecker & Haswell demolishing the R&S back catalogue, freaking out from the salty, brain-tweaking flex of 'Workout' to screwed hoover rave on 'Calc', onto darker AFXian bleeps in 'We Are All The Same', and wonky, exotic wobble with 'Battery Baby'.

Athens-based DJ, producer and sound designer Eleni Adamopoulou aka Giganta debuts on Werk Discs with five coolly lucid, colourful garage-house deviations. 'Force' is representative of the RBMA graduate's stance against the negativity and violence connoted with Athens since the financial crash of 2008, or as she says, "Music is the force that creates hopes and dreams. And so it all begins." There's a vital, infectious energy to the EP which shouldn't be ignored, from the hiccuping, Akufen-like funk of 'Can't Stop Playing', thru the chromatic chord flares of her Sensate Focus-like 'Spot Scene', to the tr… Read more

**Edition of 300 with insert** Slow, heavy, noisy techno pounding delivered by the mysterious Black Seed on Denmark's Details label. A-side delivers the asphyxiating intensity of 'Wild Rites', whose shifty demeanour, kinky hi-hats and frothing distortion strongly reminds of that crackshot 12" from Watkins & Almadovar. Flipside, 'Break The Silence' jacks up a flinty, fugged-out industrial thump, and 'Natural Instinct' turns inward with condensing, acidic synthlines locked to a dry, humping kick and rattling machine rhythms. Feels really good, this.
