These bits do the business. All out in the past fortnight unless stated otherwise.
Perbec – Chaser (Autoreply Music)
Perbec is a collaboration between Mark Broom and Baby Ford. In 2001 they released their last vinyl ‘Variety Club’ on Ifach imprint 14 years ago. Here they return with ‘Chaser’ an epic journey into the original principles of house music. Infectious bass, Chicago-style keys and deep, analog synth pads announce that the party is very much in full force. Flip the disc for “Long John” which features stripped rhythms with plenty of swing and energy – equally suited to the main room or afterhours.
Tomska – Vol.1 (Abstract Cuts)
Abstract Cuts is the first EP of a series produced by the French DJ & Producer Tomska. For this new project, Tomska explores raw and abstract sounds. Dirty kicks and phat basslines with dark synths on the A side, and a deep experimental track with a nice drum kick on the flip side.
Voigtmann – Minor Compositions of Incredibly Imaginary Futures (Toi.Toi.Musik)
Following on from their first release with Mr G, Toi.Toi.Musik now brings its very own, Voigtmann. Accumulating an array of releases in labels such as Hello?Repeat, Assemble Music and Yumé and remixers such as Craig Richards and Ion Ludwig he now brings forward only his original work on his own platform Toi.Toi.
DJ Steaw – Delirium (Rutilance Recordings)
With labels like Local Talk and Qalomota in his repertoire, it’s clear from the off that DJ Steaw is a man keeping the fire burning for deep, 90s rooted garage house. Always a regular fixture on Rutilance Recordings, he’s back on the label once more with his classic sound.
Steve O’Sullivan – Interchangeable Patterns Pt. 1 (Sushitech)
Steve O’Sullivan is here with his first solo EP in 10 years. This is an experiment in minimalism with both parts focussing on separate themes, from deep techno on disc one and green style on disc two. This release is essential for every dark house and techno lover. The vibe of old-school Steve O’Sullivan is still big today and it probably is growing even bigger in the future. He has some killer vibes!!
