“For those who know”
KIM – Vostok 01 (Tvir)
Tvir is a vinyl only label based in Ukraine. Translated from Ukrainian Tvir means ‘composition’. Its first release comes from KIM, a collaboration of two Ukrainian musicians: Vyacheslav Gura and Dimitry Zharkikh. Their objective is to write music of the highest quality in search of their own new unique sound via experiments with live instruments. This release contains remixes from Patrick Klein, Voigtmann and Leo Pol.
Le Loup & Mr Georget – Shape 4 (Adult Only Special)
Adult Only Shape is back with an intriguing collaboration, between the mysterious Frenchie Monsieur Georget and young Parisian talent Le Loup. A combination of the old skool with the new skool, the sounds are just that. Each take a pounding bass and a solid minimal-tech stance and layer their character on top. Very cool!
Signal – Spacedrive (What.if)
Look out for a new vinyl only label – What.if is based in Barcelona. This is the debut EP from the mysterious duo Signal. The release includes great remixes from Levi Verspeek and Voigtmann. This new record label is promising and you should keep an eye on it!
Diego Krause – Unison Wax 03 (Unison Wax)
Diego Krause is here again with a new release on his own label: Unison Wax. This Berlin based deep house producer comes with an eclectic release this time. Two housy tracks, a dub techno track and a real hip-hop beat! Keep your eyes open on Meoko this week for more information about Krause ;-).
Italojohnson – Italojohnson 09 (Italojohnson)
This EP from Italojohnson offers up three jacking cuts of the most pure, organic, raw, dusty, deep underground house music to date. What else could you expect from three Germans who were weaned on a steady diet of Detroit and Chicago classics from the day they were born.
Mandingo – Another Dub On Earth (Black Catalogue)
Special dub version of Mandingos original track, another night on earth. This is an extended alternate version of the original which appears on bc009_909 modern underground v.3. It sounds like a spaced out house groove with some chicago style stabs, jamaica style rubs and detroit style chords. This is a strictly limited one-sided 12” release.
