Review: Three cheers for Stefan Riesen's Morris Audio imprint, which has now notched up a century of releases after two decades in the game. By way of celebration, Riesen has decided to release a clutch of EPs containing a wealth of previously unheard gems. Part one begins with the Motor City influenced deep house jack of Iron Curtis's "Ultraviolett [100 Mix]", where shimmering chords slowly rise above sturdy beats and a wonderfully raw analogue bassline. Anna Wall and Corbi join forces for the sinewy deep house sensuality of "Tower of Babble" - all dreamy chords, lilting melodies and fuzzy analogue bass - before Repika serves up the hypnotic deep space chords and bustling bottom end grooves of "Don't Break". Arguably best of all, though, is the all-action contemporary Chicago house funkiness of Elvis Cassetta's "Lethargy Zero".
Review: As Fabric resident Anna Walls and Fina Records debutant Corbi emerge in tandem of each other the pair have come together for a record on BufoBufo and Corporeal Face's Ritual Poison. It presents Wall's fourth split/collaborative record since 2014 and a second outing from Juan Corbi of FINA Records. Filled with deeper bassline vibes, two stepping drums and sweeter house and garage sentimentalities it brings with it remixes from Chiwax and Smart Bar resident Chrissy alongside Ritual Poison's in-house remix team Escape Earth. Everything you could want from the deeper shades of London's house, garage and club techno spheres, with a bit of Chicago thrown in.
