Review: It's been a while since Alias G's last outing on Unknown To The Unknown, 2011's Delite Tonite EP. In keeping with the label's tradition of direct, no-fooling party starting fodder, "Attention" kicks things off in flamboyant style with a chunky, rolling groove accentuated by lavish string stabs. The bumpy mid-section break speaks of the roughness we've come to expect from UTTU before switching up into a double bass refrain and a tongue in cheek trance riff. "3XG Anthem" takes a more recognisably Chicagoan tone, all Larry Heard drums and bass, with extra synth squiggles and a self-assured vocal over the top. Both classicist and utterly irreverent in the same beat, Alias G has served up a thoroughly unusual blend with this release.

That's What She Said (DJ Haus On Tha remix) - (5:14) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Better known by his birth name Chris Finke as a purveyor of serious techno on Mote Evolver et al, in his Bodyjack guise Finke is having a lot of fun whipping up UK-rave fuelled boompty bangers, which makes it something of an inevitability that a partnership with UTTU would be on the cards. The EP title issues the command, and who are we to argue when the bass comes as thick and slimy as it does on "Brock Out", replete with crafty sample drops and a rattling set of drums that will reform your bone marrow. "That's What She Said" is no less rude, maximizing on dirty drum machine beats and sleazy synth and vocal licks that conjure up a modern update of Dance Mania's deviant soul. DJ Haus remixes the latter jam into a garage-y belter with the wobbliest bass and a mean kink in the groove.

House Of Dolls (TAPES remix) - (2:14)
from $1.49
Review: Musical output from Jonathan Burnip has been somewhat sporadic in the five years he has been in operation, but when he does drop a record it always counts for something. On 'House of Dolls', his masterful command of a standout hosue groove comes to the fore, as a perfectly bumping beat offsets a cavernous organ stab. All the while digital squalls flit around the track, but really everything revolves around the funk of the track. TAPES take a cheeky 8 bit dub approach to their remix, which is charming if not as striking as the fantastic original. Another winner for the on point Unknown To The Unknown imprint.

House Of Dolls Jonny Trunk Remix!! by Capracara on Unknown To The Unknown Cue Track
House Of Dolls (Jonny Trunk remix) - (4:34)
from $1.49
Played by: Digitalworkx
Review: Capracara's "House Of Dolls" was one of Unknown To The Unknown's finest tracks last year, and here it gets a reworking from library music and soundtrack specialist Jonny Trunk. The hookup, we can only assume, came through Burnip's appreciation of slasher movie soundtracks, and the result is as out there as you could imagine - stripping the radiophonic bleeps from the original, Trunk leaves only an echo of the original's melody and adds some acoustic samples to glue the remix together. Propelled by nothing other than a simple kick drum, it's what you might imagine a music concrete version of house music to sound like.

Review: Bringing more of the rough and tumble jack-action to Unknown To The Unknown, Capracara is as up for the party as ever on "Ronin", although arguably reining in his more wayward tendencies for a more direct garage house jam. Still, when the drums hit as hard as they do here, a little linear structure doesn't dampen the spirits. Recent Juno Plus podcasters Kodiak step up for a remix, and they proceed to delineate everything in sight with a chunky broken beat and dense layers of head-spinning melody, vocal samples and effects. It's perhaps less party ready than the original, but addictive all the same. Killer!

Review: UTTU have a cast-iron reputation for releasing cutting edge work by a wide variety of acts as disparate as Legowelt, Sinden and Capracara. Here we get a selection of their more bass/urban-oriented talent. Classified delivers vintage cut-up UKG on "Say To You". The latter is given a wobble heavy remix by DJ Q, who also provides the warm, Ayia Napa sounds of "All You Have To" and "You're Not Around". Zibba contributes the squelchy, string laden "Say To You (2006)" and Mooney goes all loopy funk on "Hey Hey".

Tear Tha Fuckin' Club Up! by Da Autopsy UTTU on Unknown To The Unknown Cue Track
Tear Tha Fuckin' Club Up! - (5:13) 130 BPM
from $1.49
Review: In just over a year, Unknown to the Unknown have gone from humble beginnings to releasing material from Detroit legend DJ Stingray, Chicago heat from Marcus Mixx and Alias G, the rudest bassline garage from DJ Q and tracks from up and comers Slackk, Nightwave and Mista Men. But the genesis of the label can be traced back to a YouTube channel known as "DaAutopsy", where Hot City's DJ Haus still posts forthcoming UTTU hype and old vinyl rips to this day. Now the channel has taken on a life of its own, and spewed forth "Tear Tha Fuckin' Club Up!". Undoubtedly the hardest hitting UTTU joint to date, incandescent rave stabs go toe to toe with Baltimore club styles, creating a beast of a club track that resembles a Frankenstein's monster of the YouTube generation. Big tip!

Review: After popping up on Opal Tapes amongst other cult labels over the past couple of years, DJ Ford Foster has made the move to Unknown To The Unknown and he's in the mood to get nasty. "Gold Cans" is a primal slice of gritty jack business that moves in the stiffest possible groove, while every single drum sound seems to grind its teeth to make the grizzly synth feel at home. "Let's Go" has a definite ghetto house flavour to it, while "Black Candles" gets more deranged with a whole lot of sample triggering and background droning behind the jackhammer beats. "Fake Shoes" is equally unhinged and upfront in its approach, making this a perfect release for the UTTU mission.

Review: That fun-loving renegade DJ Haus is at it again, whipping out an embarrassment of party-starters for all those that want to be smacked in the face by their house music. The lead chords of "Hey Now, Wait A Minute" tell you all you need to know, pitched towards the peak of summer that lies somewhere in the distance and ready to inspire all manner of grins in the dance. The drums are rowdy and the synths are brazen across the EP, from the Nightmares On Wax-aping bleep abandon of "Dexterous" to the scuffed breakbeat of "Tell Me", with every ounce of old-skool 'avin it attitude rendered in perfect early '90s style.

When U Look At - (6:15) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: DJ Ford Foster
Review: UTTU boss man DJ Haus has enjoyed a productive year, dashing between the forthright ghetto-house vibes of his Thug Houz Anthems series and the kaleidoscopic rave revivalism and garage-flecked rush of his Space Jamz Vol. 1 12". Here, the hard-working, London-based producer delivers more retro-futurist thrills, with a two-track blast of floor-friendly fun. Predictably, there's something suitably anthem-like about "Comin' On", a rush-inducing blast of late night acid-funk replete with spine-tingling vocal samples and nagging 303 tweakery. "When You Look At" has a similarly robust feel, with an addictive bassline and boompty-era beats underpinning more sharp vocal samples and a deliciously simple bleep melody.

Will I Ever Be Free - (4:22) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: As one half of the garage-loving Hot City, it makes sense for DJ Haus to be releasing Radio 1 Xtra and veteran garage and bassline producer DJ Q's All Junglist on his label Unknown To The Unknown - in fact it's almost surprising something like this hasn't been released before. Initially characterized by drum programming that is, well, "junglist", the track is interjected with a beat that is less broken, and more split in half, ripped apart with a tidal wave of woozy bassline action; combined with the tropical synth melody and hardcore referencing piano you've got a track that is classicist and very much in keeping with the label's technicolour focus. It's joined by "Will I Ever Be Free", marked out by a slightly housier touch given by its deep string melody, adding a rich contrast to the swooping low end and crunchy snares. It's a curious mix of bassline garage and Detroit moods, and one that works surprisingly well. Highly recommended!

Review: DJ Stingray's second appearance on Unknown To The Unknown is finally made available digitally. "Cryptic" is a bad-ass Stingray cut, where his uncompromising synth arpeggios flutter away into space, taking us on a wild frenzy through inter-galactic territories. "Know Your Enemy" is a heavy, breakbeat-ridden mutant - containing some of the nastiest, most filthy vocal samples you'll hear this millenium, whilst "Solitude" picks up from where the man left off since his last LP and delivers a fine package of funky electro basslines and gnarly, contorted drum patterns. TIP!

Review: More commonly known for his vicious club constructions on Night Slugs as Helix, US producer Beau Thigpen added the DJ Vague alias to his collar earlier this year with Porsche Trax for Sydney's Templar Sound. That title was largely inspired by Thomas Bangalter's run of Roule 12"s from the late '90s. Thigpen's latest DJ Vague transmission for Unknown To The Unknown beefs up the house of before into something more associable with Shed and Head High than Daft Punk. Fast and loopy French house does make an appearance on "Hard Workin' Trax 2" however, while on "Hard Workin' Trax 3" intense drum rolls, deep synths, mechanical hi-hats and reverberant atmospheres create a blusterous techno production. Three safe DJ tools.

Review: With a number of big releases under his belt, including an EP for Palms Out Sounds and Untold's SSSSS label no less, Dubbel Dutch finds himself on Unknown to the Unknown's own imprint for his new release. The original version of "B Leave" takes drum & bass inspired percussion and fuses it with a modern bass template, taking its R&B sample and combining it with icy synth stabs which create a sound much like a Detroit take on bass. Transatlantic Night Slugs associates NGUZUNGUZU meanwhile offer a significantly more stripped back version, adding pan pipe samples to its chopped and screwed future R&B aesthetics. Highly recommended.

Review: Former L2S player and MJ Cole remixer Duncan Powell rejigs his 2009 banger "Brake" on this new release from Unknown To The Unknown. The original - previously known and loved from Hot City's Fact mix of the same year - is included here thankfully and still shines thanks to its ultra-funky minimal garage motifs and catchy-as-hell chiming melody. The 2012 mix however throws some real fire at the tune - adding thicker kicks and some deeper sub bass whilst still keeping the rude funk locked in.

Review: Emerging as one of the most prolific producers currently operating on the fringes of techno, Lakker's Ian McDonnell adds the Unknown To The Unknown label to his prospering discography with this riotous slab under the rarely used EeOo alias. As Lakker, McDonnell and studio partner Dara Smith have been crafting various strands of music for the best part of a decade, but a more concerted focus on techno has seen the Dublin-based pair gain wider exposure thanks to releases on Killekill, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Blueprint and Candela Rising. McDonnell has separately been cultivating his own Eomac project over this period too, which has resulted in some excellent releases for Code Is Law, The Trilogy Tapes and Killekill. Ahead of a debut album for the latter label as Eomac, McDonnell's work as the amusingly framed EeOo seems perfectly suited to UTTU, taking influence from Zomby, Arovane, and Errorsmith. the EP runs the gauntlet between scrambled rave, wonky acid and seemingly eski-inspired melodies, and is possibly one of the wildest records UTTU have put out in their illustrious history.

from $1.49
Review: All that time conversing with the likes of Marcus Mixx and DJ Stingray must have rubbed off on Unknown To The Unknown's DJ Haus. Despite his Hot City project (alongside Ben Keen) being known for its bass-heavy 2-step productions, this EP, in collaboration with the LA/Montreal pair LOL Boys, consists of a pair of tweaking acid-house jackers. The title track opens with a flurry of swung 808 kicks and neon stabs, before giving way to a rough and ready 303 line, with the rhythm straightened out in the second half into a tough 4/4 house rhythm. "Whitney (Jus Some Shit)" is another winning piece of Chicago inspired house, with a gnarled bassline, driven by furious cowbells and detuned ghetto vocal samples, all with a grimy undercurrent that keeps its feet firmly entrenched in the underground of contemporary London club music. If you're worried that the new direction will cause some of Hot Ciy and LOL Boys energy to be lost in translation, don't be - this is some their best output to date.

The elemental names should tell you all you need to know about how fierce these tracks are, with "Tsunami Riddim" and "Lightning Riddim" primed for club play. There's another side though in "Brandy Riddim" and "Vapor Riddim" which takes things back to the '90s - another essential grip from DJ Haus' label!

The Star Gazing EP makes for a wondrous display of Legowelt's talent for implementing those trademark melodies within various rhythmic frameworks; in the case of stand out track "Visions In My Mind", it's a hypnotic disco jacker lent no small degree of melancholy by the titular vocal.

Review: Given the apparent air of mystery surrounding this release, not to mention the befuddled mentions of aliens and military droids in the accompanying press release, the smart money is on this latest Unknown to the Unknown release being the work of a talented, eccentric and well-named producer under a new pseudonym. We won't give the game away (the catalogue number offers a big clue), but suffice to say that the music is fantastic. "Drown In Your Love", all heady chords, tropical chants, hissing analogue percussion and saucer-eyed electronics, is particularly revelatory, but the hip-hop sampling intergalactic oddness of "Skyscrapers of Yphsilion" isn't far behind. The dreamy "We Gonna Ride Tonite" offers some respite in the form of an intoxicating, vintage deep house gem - all twinkling chords, fuzzy beats and stargazing intent.

Review: The Unknown To The Unknown juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down as they absorb UK garage heroes Mista Men into the fray, delivering three club-ready bombs from the duo. "Labrini" takes it back to '97 with its steel pan percussion and bright streaks of neon intersecting its passages of sticky bassline action. "Forget U" opts for the darker approach, offering only snatches of vocals from its foggy bass, while "Hard Drive" takes some bracing synth stabs and puts them together with some breathy vocals and junglist airhorns to create a devastating combination. Right now only Disclosure can match this pair for such impeccably produced garage inspired beats - big tip!

Review: Continuing to spread his identity out across a myriad of labels from Tectonic to Keysound, Jack Adams now brings his Mumdance to Unknown To The Unknown for a workout that channels his own production traits into a decidedly 'up-for-it' blend that suits the label just fine. "It's Peak" marches out on a limber, garage-informed groove while the sounds and ideas stay raw and visceral, honed for club consumption. "Springtime" meanwhile flips the script completely with a purple-esque electro number dripping with saccharine synths shot through with that tongue-in-cheek UTTU flavour, making this a record that will reach out to very different kinds of electronic beat fiends.

Review: There's more cheeky rave business afoot in the Unknown To The Unknown camp, this time coming from fresh faced cheeky chappie Murlo, who brings the UK funky styles of his Adder EP to bear in a fit of primary coloured party starting. "Adder" works around a helter skelter arpeggio and MIDI trumpet stabs that positively encourage fist pumping of the most unabashed kind. "Irises" is a more grime-inflected workout, with dynamic string hooks giving way to a tropical menagerie of bass and percussion. Maintaining the wayward nature of the EP, "Palace" rounds everything off with a slower kind of soca break, while the melodics point to a more poignant vibe compared to the riotous nature of the rest of the release.

Review: Given Unknown To The Unknown's wide ranging remit, including bassline garage, Detroit electro and Chicago house, it was perhaps inevitable that a genuine 90s house record would find its way onto the label at some point. Originally released in 1992, OHM's "Tribal Tone" was supposedly the first tune to use the Korg M1 sound that was later immortalised by Robin S' "Show Me Love", and had considerable impact at the time, being championed The Shamen frontman Mr C, being licensed to R&S sub-label Global Cuts and US label Vibe, and finding itself remixed by the Sabres of Paradise trio. Here it finds itself with three similarly great remixes, a stripped-back, raw groover from Marquis Hawkes, a horn-heavy piece of 90s action from Capracara and a thundering mid-tempo effort from Northern Souls. Essential!

Review: Stepping up to the raucous surroundings of Unknown To The Unknown, Palace comes bringing the right kind of bass-laden swagger you expect from this ever-strengthening imprint. "Trust" is a monster, led by a coarse garage drum jive and a b-line cheeky enough to get every wallflower within fifty metres shucking. There's no doubting the instantaneous results this banger will bring, and the remixes are no shirkers either. Matrixxman cools the heat slightly with a mildly stripped variation on the original's driving theme, while the Mista Men opt instead to bring a seriously funky house shuffle to bear on the bin-bothering party antics.

Review: Portuguese duo Photonz' latest track "1551", is described by Unknown To The Unknown as "Anti Illuminati Egyptian Trance House". It's somewhat apt as a description, as the track's tumbling tropical rhythms are joined by the kind of hypnotic melodic arrangement that gets right under your skin alongside some piano chords that make the whole thing sound like Chicago house as invented by Giorgio Moroder. As ever with UTTU, high calibre remixes are on the table also; Capracara turns in a surprisingly UK funky-inspired revision, Walter Ego turns it into a bass-heavy broken garage banger, and HALP smashes it into tiny pieces and rearranges it into a weird hybrid of IDM, footstep and dubstep. Essential!

Review: With over 20 releases in less than two years UTTU have managed to uphold their credibility, so often lost with labels who spit out song after song like copy machines (to quote Lil' Louis' French Kiss), and this release from Portugeuse pairing Photonz is another killer. Balearic, beatdown and busy electro with hints of a 80s Hollywood action soundtrack make up the ten-minute title "Hurt Me Hurt Me". Piqued melodies and synthesised pan pips are treated to 707 workouts in "Veracruz", remixed by Boy s Noize Records stalwarts Shadow Dancer who up the BPM and exercise their Warp Records influences.

Review: Before we say anything, here's what the artist blurb said: "This is what happens when 3 Tumblr personalities manage to transcend time and space and use virtual reality to create some of the most warped ghetto house and techno this side of Second Life." There is no way we're going to argue with that. Heavy duty aggression mixed with a massive dose of slow-release intensity reaching through each tune makes this four tracker a must-cop for techno and deep house heads looking for something harder. Be brave. Just try it, you never know, you might like it.

Review: The latest UTTU drop sees the first tangible material from RuF Dug and Samrai, two long term fixtures on the Manchester clubbing scene and close friends. Of the two RuF Dug will probably be the more familiar to those outside of MCR, thanks to his Ruf Kutz label and prospering production output for Sud, Porn Wax, Banoffee Pies and more though Swing Ting man Samrai has been cutting his teeth of late with drops on Niche N Bump and Keysound. It's fairly hard to drop genre bombs on their two tracks here with both "1st Observation" and "2nd Observation" throwing various stylistic elements into the mixer and evening them out over some nicely left leaning house rhythms. Mood Hut's Hashman Deejay and rising Aussie production unit Zanzibar Chanel are great picks for remix purposes, adding further sonic personality to a record that stands apart from a lot of current "deep house".

Review: UTTU helpfully describe this release from Boysnoize affiliates Shadow Dancer as "dungeon acid". It's an apt description. Ooozing with energy, it sounds like the revivalist rave fare recently offered up by the excellent R-Zone imprint. "Hydrate" darts around impressively, all chopped up vocals, darkroom samples, colossal builds and rave-era stavs. Photonz handle remix duties, turning the in-your-face original into an intense chunk of nightmarish acid techno that seems to be the product of a particularly freakish trip. That's a good thing, mind. Bonus cut "Matta", on the other hand, offers the sort of classic 303 thrills last heard emerging from the studios of Phuture and Virgo Four at the tail end of the 1980s.

Review: Despite often playing second fiddle to his original partner The Count aka Herve, Graeme Sinden is still doing alright for himself. Having recently relocated to LA, his relentless productivity is beginning to bear fruit with this, his first solo release of 2013. Despite being the other side of the Atlantic both tracks here display distinct UK influences: "Bad Boy" fuses choppy, fidgety loops, a ragga MC sample and some seriously wobbly UKF. The best track though, is the more linear "Tempest Storm" which features long deep house loops and some absolutely lovely garage-inspired melodies.

Review: After sturdy appearances on Numbers and Local Action, Slackk returns to one of his earlier outposts in the form of Unknown To The Unknown, throwing down a curious mixture of oriental folk music with grime-inspired beats and the occasional flurry of vintage computer game MIDI business. The beats are slippery and jerky on "Inland" where the synth comes in all side-chained and disjointed, with only gun shots for ballast on the buoyant groove. "Wolf Creek" brings on the aforementioned Monkey Island vibes, using curious keys and harmonies to create a decidedly eerie atmosphere, while "Blue Forest" is arguably the spiciest tune on the EP with its urgent percussion and more involved arrangements of lute action worked into a stomping 140 bpm rhythm.

Review: Having just about recovered from his Coolie Joyride earlier this year, the world is again ready for some more of this East Ender's often quite tough beats. So here he is right on time with another banger, 'Baby", a production that features everything but the kitchen sink. It starts with some orchestrated hip-house before launching into some pretty serious 4 x 4 with extra lashing of distorted wobble. Elsewhere the Flava Gold mix goes all doomy 2 step, while Da Autopsy throws in the rawest high hats we've ever heard!

Review: UTTU return with what is probably their most impressive release yet; The Sadist, a collaboration by the legendary DJ Stingray, and Unknown To The Unknown's DJ Haus. It certainly lives up to its namesake, with "The Sadist (Part One) employing a 160BPM tempo and a searing electro bassline, and furious drum programming that brings the influence of Chicago juke to Stingray's Detroit leaning template. Part two of "The Sadist" meanwhile concentrates more on rapid 808 drum programming and more fluid synths, dragging the listener remorselessly through a world of alien sounds and breakbeat bass. The remixes meanwhile are something very special indeed, with Drexciya's Heinrich Mueller reworking "The Sadist" with a slower tempo, brittle, frosty synth shards and weird transmissions from the other side, and Cestrian (aka Ali Renault) provides similarly great remix of "The Sadist Pt 2", employing all manner of analogue arpeggios in a fine approximation of Detroit's finest.

Review: Bay area analogue fetishist Vin Sol pops up on Unknown To The Unknown with a stargazing chunk of retro-futurist party acid. "Edges of a Vortex" packs the ghetto-inspired drum funk of Dance Mania and the low-end bounce of Virgo Four into a bass music-inspired slab of stab-laden euphoria (think snaking synth sax, stomping rhythms and rumbling Chi-town bass). "Voice Chip Activ8", meanwhile, sounds like the bastard offspring of Luke Vibert, Jeff Mills and DJ Rashad. Matrixxman remixes, turning the relentless original into a slack-jawed acid groover.

Review: The WT Records boss and all round hero of leftfield house circles Willie Burns is building bridges across the pond to DJ Haus' irrevocably irreverent Unknown To The Unknown. It's a chance for Burns to zoom in on his love of old-skool sounds and show them off without a whisper of self doubt. "Woo Right" kicks things off with a piano-led heater steeped in moody '90s attitude, while "The Heaviest Elements" makes for a more aggressive affair with more overt club stylings to impart through tough-edged beats and a distinct lack of any melody. "Fast Times At Long Island City High" shuffles arpeggios and dusty drums through lo-fi delay in a more esoteric approach that is ably followed up by "Adverbs & Adjectives" with its chords that fall somewhere between Detroit techno and early trance in their euphoric veneer.
