Veteran Italian cosmic DJ Danielle Baldelli has been collaborating with young buck Marco Dionigi on and off for a few years now. The saying goes 'if it ain't broke don't fix it', and once again they've decided to repeat their winning formula here on their new long player Cosmic Eagle Vol 2. There are eight new tracks to choose from, highlights of which include the Funky Town-style Italo-disco froth of "Audax", the spacey, galaxy exploration synths of "Lophaetus" and the choppy electro-funk of "Pelagicus". Top stuff!
After an absence of fifteen years, Jamie Read reignites his Push II Shove label with a fresh EP under his LHAS moniker. Those with a keen interest in contemporary house music will no doubt be familiar with LHAS jammers for Housewax, Vibrations, Knoe, Cynic and more in recent times, and Read's career stretches back over the past 20 years and includes numerous credited and uncredited releases. The self explanatory Push II Shove 3 EP sees Read return to his own label in style with four new productions steeped in the LHAS style.
