These bits do the business. All out in the past fortnight unless stated otherwise.

Jichael Mackson – Foxy Lady EP (Teledub)


Teledub is the birth child label of Jichael Mackson. Fittingly, the first release comes from the Munich based artist on his own imprint where he implements his own signature sound over three atmospheric, spaced out tracks.  B-side Foxdevilswild is a track that you will just have to play on repeat.

 adult only records 43 – larry de kat 


Adult Only present another sublime release from Larry De Kat who offers a variety of rolling grooves. The A side includes Diks On Gruds, a fierce composition with a deadly bassline and Noodlez which provides a quirkier sound constructed of whirring and choppy percussions. The flip contains a jacking Phil Weeks remix of the opener as well as Um which is a minimal breather in comparison to the rest of the hard hitting EP. TIP!

Times Are Ruff – CutzPart2 EP (Times Are Ruff)


The second Cutz EP from Times Are Ruff offers another raw selection of serious Detroit house music tools built for the dancefloor. The first two ‘cutz’ serve up a tenacious style of tight drum pads, with shuffling breakdowns, whereas the last two tracks give way to a funky bassline that would sit perfectly in any warm-up set.

Verrina & Ventura – UNO (Howl)


Giavanni Verrina and Germano Venturo are no strangers to producing music, of which they have released on some of the most interesting labels including All Inn Records and Only 300 Family. UNO is their latest project which is a treat of six solid unravelling house and techno supplements to be played loud. Expect a bass driven listen with scattered vocals.

 Ricardo Villalobos – Who Are We EP (Raummusik)


Ricardo Villalobos returns for his second release on Raum Musik with Who Are We. It features two mechanical slices of the minimalistic sound that Ricardo is renowned for accompanied by vocals from his friend Jorge Gonzalez and Alog, which provides a Chilean spice that lifts the entire EP.

The new label concept, Discobar designed by Guillaume Tallieu and Lamache is already making quite an impression through its uniquely constructed releases. Toba delivers the third, setting the mark high with possibly the imprint’s best release to date.  Self-titled track San Diego is an atomic and hypnotizing opener which experiments with high pitched synths and choppy vocals, but the EP really comes to life on the B side where Toba and Ark combine to perfectly execute a Perlon esque microhouse style of sound, that eventually erupts with crisp hi hats. Expect to hear this outstanding track in lots of sets from the likes of Zip and Ricardo Villalobos.
