NMW013 – James Talk “The Beginning” Noir Music
Noir Music gives you a rather uplifting tune with this new James Talk tech-basher. Oldschool piano and well-planted vocals sit tight with the techy feel on this sunstroke from the UK. Already championed by Pete Tong on the Essential Selection and expect a lot of Djs to follow with this cool remix package.
8Bit's golden boy and headhoncho Gorge takes the track deeper, more organic and gives the whole package soul. For those of you who already love the sound of 8Bit and Gorge..... you will love this one.... For the rest of you..... start your Gorge journey here and fall in love.
Oliver Dahl has already gained huge success with his tracks Rien, Villo & Joa on Noir Music and his productions are simply phat and full-on. Mr. Dahl once again delievers a 100% full on techno effort destined to please the primetime and late night heads.
OBDIG014 – David E Sugar “Housemate” Oblio Recordings
David E Sugar has been a popular face on the UK, and European Chip Music scene since early 2004. He uses 'tracker' software on a Gameboy to create sequences, which he then builds over with other instruments. After being selected to take part in the Desiel U Music tour in the UK during 2006, his profile has risen, and he will now accompany top ten star Clavin Harris on his UK jaunt in June and July 2007.
He regularly plays to large crowds all across Europe, including Germany and Switzerland, now it appears that the rest of the world is catching onto his unique and quirky, but damn fine pop music. Here's The 14th release on Oblio Recordings from David E. Sugar. This one is called Housemate.
PUNKS007 – Stanton Warriors “Hope Time/Prisoner” Punks – BREAKS
Stanton Warriors 'Hope Time'/'Hope Time' (The Rogue Element Remix) - Punks007
The Stanton Warriors may have been away touring the hotter reaches of the globe at the moment, but that hasn't stopped them from dropping the next album sampler on their flourishing Punks imprint. 'Hope Time' is probably one of the biggest records the boys have ever made. Really. Tipping its hat to the Stantons' garage roots while simultaneously showing how breakbeat grooves really should be done, the track also boasts none other than the Rev. Jesse Jackson on vocals, imploring us to 'Give peace a chance.' - while the tune itself does anything but. On the flip, The Rogue Element takes care of the first ever remix on Punks in spectacular fashion. This man is destined for huge things in 2006 and here demonstrates why, turning Hope Time's rolling groove into a screeching, live-drum-rolling big-room monster. Dom & Mark dropped this at their recent Stanton Sessions night at Fabric to a reaction so loud you could hear it from room 2!
TVZ004 – Sour Grapes “Kharma/Mantra” Televizion
Dave Spoon's Televizion label returns with this awesome EP from Sour Grapes. Sour Grapes was created in Stockholm, Sweden in late 2008 with focus on producing the trio's interpretation of modern electronic dance music. Driven and inspired by nature, life and humanity, the main focus of Sour Grapes music is to keep people together in a friendly world, where people care for one another and the environment.
Lead track Kharma is an Eastern inspired techno workout with heavy rolling beats and bass with an authentic Indian leadline. Already receiving Radio 1 airplay and being supported by a who's who of the worlds biggest DJs. Mantra keeps things rolling with more snappy rhythms and rolling bass.
XFER005 – WTF? “Redic/CEABA55555” Xfer Records – ELECTRO HOUSE
WTF, the dream team line up of deadmau5, Tommy Lee, DJ Areo and Steve Duda return to XFER Records with the huge bombs 'Redic' and 'Seaba5555'. Redic's foundations of stripped-back beats and low, throbbing bassline set the tone. Cool stabs and bleeps are used to amazing effect and create a funky yet dark track. Seba5555 is a real heady affair. A bubbling bassline and breakbeat esc beats give this track a real upbeat rhythm. Delayed pads help build the tension whilst the bassline continues to pulsate from deep. Out of this world zaps and squeaks take your head and spins it round and round - an amazingly constructed track that deserves some serious rotation!
SHR004 – Ivan Enot “Spring Panda” Support House Records – DEEP HOUSE
Support House Records presents: Ivan Enot - Spring Panda (004)
If you close your eyes and listen to the track 'Spring Panda', you will fly away in your dreams and forget about the gravitation and rational thinking for a long time. The Russian electronic music has always been filled with a spirit and this release is no exception. The original track was created in an old-school style, expressively and tunefully. So, what about the remixes?
The outstanding work by shaman Seva K from Novgorod (who is well-known in Europe as a producer of vivid and melodic works) added an unbelievable dancing character to this release. Dj Primat introduces a classic deep house sound into the mix, and Ksky completed the project with his very cool tech sound. The 'Spring Panda' is 100% good work and 100% Russian Underground Family.

SCREC012 – Woody McBride “Smoke Signals From Outer Space EP” Solar Cathedral Recordings – TECHNO
Finalizing a stream of Minneapolis releases was a task that the boys over at Solar Cathedral felt could only handled by none other than Midwest Techno King himself... Mr. Woody McBride. 'Smoke Signals From Outer Space' is set to knock you out of the park. This EP is armed to the teeth with wicked hats, droning bass lines, evil synths and a movement that is somewhat reminiscent of 'The Old Days', feeling like it's being fueled by sounds of the future. Whether you like your groove's pace to be deep & slow or you prefer to have the floor rocking in high gear, this release has something for everyone's selection without loosing that harder edge that DJ ESP is known so well for. With support & frequent plays by some of the industries heaviest hitters, these tunes are hammering their way across dance floors the world over.

DIFD032 – Eduardo Rossell & Twilk “Fire Ants” Difusion Records – TECHNO
Fire Ants: the creation of the collaboration between Eduardo Rossell and the duo Twilk both from Mexico City ; Years of production and live acts behind them show the ability on their studio skills to create this track full of algorithmic patterns when listening to the original track we find the elaboration on the percussive element thru the entire track during the first minutes and eventually after a break we encounter the climax of the track follow by acid bass lines and extensive hit hats making echo during end of if . Silentcorp remix is blend bouncy techno and at the same time discovers the dark side of it and decides to elongate it making it a very unique track whit the use of rhythmical compositions and short cuts creating tension to elevate the surprise factor during the track a very well executed subjective Remix .Kid Perra 's remix is about the most deepest melodic techno ever publish on our label while evaluating and mastering it we came to the conclusion that had a lot of trance influence on it but it also has that little hint of techno kicks and bass lines behind it like I fthey where infused inside the Dna on the track making this track a very hybrid version of original mix, and Finally We have once again Zarbeat opening the track whit deep kicks and long echoes that lead to the beginning of the song incorporating acoustic synts and the classic Tabla noise to it making this remix version a high Techno content track .

IM035 – Kaufmann und Ferdinand “Lautstarke ist essenziell” Impact Mechanics – TECH-HOUSE
Producers Kaufmann and Ferdinand Drop this hot EP for Impact Mechanics. "Lautstarke ist essenziell" is the tune that is working for me, with minimal tech house rhythms and sizzling, chunky analog house instrumentation. On the flip, subtle grooves, lush undertones and silky laid back vibe rock this truly amazing track. Take a pinch of Angel Alanis, a dash of Par Grindvik, and a teaspoon of The Submerge, and this is what you would come up with. Quality Tech House.
*Receiving support from DJs: Derrick May, Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia, Dubfire, Ken Ishii, Tehcnasia, Jim Masters, Jori Hulkkonen, DJ Misjah, Len Faki, DJ Hyperactive,
