Social Disco Club - Just One Touch (The Mekanism Remix)


Just One Touch has been a long time coming but it emerges as a classic ode to house past and present. Porto based producer Social Disco Club was sat on the track for two years before Miss Bee added her dusky vocals. Frayed and taught with emotion, her voice works in harmony with the gritty analogue sounds that drive the track.

Where the original demands attention, the instrumental version shows a more subtle route to the floor. Tucked away on the b2, the absence of the full vocal allows the weighty drums and Detroit influences to come to the fore. With space to breathe the elements of the track begin to shine; restrained pads become expansive and the gurgling bass line rises to the fore.

On remix duty are Parisian duo The Mekanism and Melbourne’s man of the moment Francis Inferno Orchestra. The French pair weigh in with an upfront interpretation, working in some modern bounce to the feel good 90s vibe of the original.

Where The Mekanism straighten out Just One Touch to create a smooth, effective DJ tool, Francis Inferno shakes things up, adding an element of chaos with his Piano Jam remix. Unhinged keys frequently break through spacey atmospherics, falling away to place emphasis on drums that beat assertively between house and techno.

Under The Shade confidently cover all the bases here, with a standout original and reworkings from a pair of fast-rising young production outfits able to deconstruct the influences poured into their sources.

Chairlift - I Belong In Your Arms (John Talabot & Pional 6.15 AMix)

Robosonic - Over The Edge EP


While Robosonic's extraordinary OFF debut "Worst Love" was paying homage to a specific underground rap record by the Dilated Peoples (actually without sampling the record itself), the follow-up now takes it way over the edge: consciously, of sound mind. Since their early vinyl bootlegs (2005) under various aliases and their critically acclaimed first album as Robosonic (2007), Cord and Sacha incorporate a certain sense of irony into their undisputed world class production work. For their next episode on OFF, the boys cut slices of hiphop sample history and flipped them into seriously soulful house music joints. Functional arrangements with plenty of musical references to golden eras and past times create the emotional depth of Robosonic's modern „hi-tech soul".
"Over" with its intimate feel seems less obvious than the famous hookline of "The Edge". In fact Dr. Dre was not the first beatmaker to cook it up, so Robosonic probably aren't the last either. They just do what they like doing best. Funnily enough our praised creators anticipate critics and let Talib do the talking: „These cats ain't real."


Fabo feat. Lostcause - Where I Stand (Karmon Remix)


Dutch house talent Karmon drops a remix of Fabo's "Where I Stand". Complementing Lostcause’s somber yet inherently captivating with deep emotive charm throughout, his melodically refined spectacle of deep House grooves and scattered key work is as contagious as it is a refreshing escape from the peak time overhaul that has ensued throughout the year.

Bicep - Vision Of Love


After five years of running the highly popular and eclectic music blog "Feel My Bicep", releasing a string of productions and remixes while also DJing consistently all around the world, setting up a label seemed like the next logical step for Bicep. With the aim of releasing fun and varied music, the only condition the boys gave themselves was to maintain full creative control to take the the label in whichever direction they desired.
Their first release follows on a similar vein to previous chart-topping single $tripper, deeply inspired by their love of the early US house scene but with a modern twist…
"Vision Of Love" is a cheeky 90's piano house track and will be released on limited vinyl only on the 24. september

Candi Staton - Hallelujah Anyway (Larse Vocal)


Candi Staton has legacy beyond compare. Responsible for some of the most memorable and best loved soul records of all time, Staton has a voice that is currently captivating a new generation of music lovers just as it did when she first oooed and ahhed onto the music scene as a soul siren in the '70s. Staton's latest single is "Hallelujah Anyway"; a timeless, feel-good soul record typical of Staton's overwhelmingly positive musical message, now released with remixes from Director's Cut and Larse. Under their Director's Cut guise, Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper deliver two versions that pair Staton's inimitable vocal with Knuckle's legendary house chords with stunningly effective results. Larse meanwhile goes deep with a club-ready cut that demonstrates the versatility of Staton's vocal, sitting proudly over a beautifully melancholic piece of production....and is already becoming one of the vocal records of the summer 2012 season.



Another brilliant from Larse..

Tomas Barfod - Till We Die EP


Since the late 90's Tomas Barfod has been on the lips of the techno, house and club scene. As a man of many talents, he has earned the respect of artists, labels and fans alike. His latest album, 'Salton Sea' (released via Friends Of Friends) featured 'Till We Die feat. Nina Kinert', we sent it out to our friends and got some amazing remixes back! Nina's vocals haunt like ghosts in a machine, wrapped up with great bass lines and quirky percussion. Arps set an atmosphere of airy mist, while the beat picks up and moves us. This is the original mix, as heard on 'Salton Sea'. LOPAZZ and Forever Jung (aka Philipp Jung of M.A.N.D.Y.) work together to bring you their vision of 'Till We Die'. The percussion relies on a hefty kick pumping the track along, while a dirty bassline bumbles through the set of bells and woodblocks. An innovative approach to an already stellar track. We've got more from the fair-haired duo Blond:ish for you. Keeping true to their reputation for deep basslines and heavy atmospheres, the girls deliver excellence. Playing with the sounds, the girls create a cool burner that will set the dancefloor on fire. Andycap takes the cold atmosphere of the original and strips it down to the bones to open his remix, then laying the groove on thick as he drops the beat. This is your afterhour, home-listening or midset chilled killer; a perfect conclusion to this amazing release.
