Tadd Mullinix's Michigan-based label Bopside is home to his and D'Marc Cantu's brilliant 2AMFM project. This eponymous album is their long awaited long player after loads of previous releases on labels like Creme, Spectral Sound, M>O>S Recordings and Nation. It's deep, but warm and highlights include the melted mechanical acid of "Midnight Social", the lo-fi electro-pop of "Excuse Me Miss" and the soothing ecstasy pads of retro houser "What We Live For".
The Fun label is the joint project of two Argentinean producers, Barem (Minus) and Alexis Cabrera. Here they continue their mission to evolve from minimal into more human and spontaneous sounds. Having said that, none of the three tracks here could ever be described as maximal. "Turn On The Fun" is trancey, almost proggy electro-house, "Funcy" is deeper, with hypnotic tribal rhythms and "Funatics" is playfully chic Euro-house. Classy.
