Huey Mnemonic – Virtuosity EP

Subsonic Ebonics – Release: 6th July 2020

Huey Mnemonic rolling the ruff and ready drum patterns over some classic Detroit progressions. Channeling the original techno sound and futurist concepts, this EP brings a modern sheen to the style and keeps the tempo as it should! Extra nice to hear some unabashed toms leading the march in both tunes, with the Moma remix taking things on a more tried and tested club route. TIP!

Will update the post when there’s some previews online…

PREMIERE: Southfacing – Out Of The Park

Frequency Domain – Release: 19th June 2020

Really happy to present this premiere of ‘Out Of The Park’ by Southfacing. Along with Ali Wade, Southfacing co-runs the Frequency Domain label out of London, UK. A label we have featured often on the radio/blog and a collective you can rely on for consistently well curated synth music.

Sit back and let these 11 minutes of drifting synthedelics occupy the space between your speakers (or headphones):

Marquis Hawkes – Lunar EP

UTTU – Release: 3rd July 2020

From his early wonky techno releases on Djax Up Beats and Ugly Funk, to his newer house productions, we have been fans of Mark Hawkins aka Marquis Hawkes for the best part of 2 decades now.

His jacking Relief-esque records of late have made way in this outing on UTTU, in exchange for some very mellow deep house sounds (from when deep house meant something different to now!)

The EP, gradually slows in bpm, with a nice ambient track in ‘Morning After’ to finish off. Sonically, it’s nothing ground-breaking by any means, but reliably solid tools for DJs and any kind of return to ambient house is a plus in our books.

DJ Soch – The Power of Poetry

Distant Hawaii – Release: 3rd July

Chic beachwear vibes on this 5-track EP from DJ Soch. Blending ambient pads, 707s and resonating marimba tones to create some classy deep house grooves.

Assuming we will be able to dance outside sometime in the near future, this one will be in our daytime crates.
