Review: It sure is a tasty one for the latest edition of the Moonshine Recordings run as they invite the high energy combination of both Dubbing Sun and Echo Ranks together for a marching system delight entitled 'Politician', stooped in bass bin busting sub tones and inspiring vocal chants. They have also supplied a few very tidy remixes to run alongside, With the legendary Radikal Guru leading the way with his metallic rethink alongside a fully reworked dub version. This is then followed up by the super spacey sounds of the Small Town Dubz Roots version, rounding up the whole project nicely.
Review: With the Dekmantel machine growing by the week the label has come to a point over the last 10 years where it's happy to stand up and represent the otherside of dance music, bands. That now includes The Mauskovic Dance Band, a five piece group outta Amsterdam setting new tropical and Latin inspired flavours for our forthcoming hawaaian t-shirt summer season especially brought to you by the best merry makers in the business. It brings with it a diggers vibe of disco and percussion music with slights of '70s cosmique and exotica. Lo-fi, funky and chic.
Review: Mella Dee bounces back on his Warehouse Music label with this club-primed release. The title track leads the listener on a journey through 90s minimal techno, with chattering percussion accompanying analogue yelps and a wiry rhythm. The tempo moves up a few gears on "Toast" and "Sidewalk Surfer", with Dee applying roughly the same hardware-driven approach, albeit set to more pace-y backing tracks. "Maplins" resounds to grainy kicks and raw percussive ticks, sounding like it was inspired by Neil Landstrumm's 90s work for Tresor, while on "Rockport Xcs", the singular techno producer delivers detuned chords against a skippy, rolling groove.
