GrooveSource Cycle 166
General Release: 9/8/2009
A7014 – Aubrey “Aqua Warrior EP” A7 Records – TECHNO
A7 is the new label by long time player in the Techno world Aubrey of the UK label Solid Groove Records. With over 20 years making underground music on his own, four vinyl labels Solid Groove, Textures, Dark, and Super Disco Fakes he has clocked up over 75 vinyl releases.
A7, was set up to re-release Aubrey's older unreleased material, but this release is a groundbreaking 4 tracker of new music! His first since 2003!!!
Aqua Warrior is a serious mix of Chicago and Detroit techno / house with touches of deep house and driving beats. African Song is a track in the style of Aubrey's deep house label Textures but with a fatter and more dubbed out style. Wanna Do That is a nervous, deep, pounding acid track for 2009. Play this at your own peril, with its deep bass and twisted sounds its on par with his classic track Marathon on Leftfield's Offshoot. Rounding out the package is Beat The Clock. This is a more upbeat track aimed at the underground dancefloor with heavy audio edits and acid lines, this will be sure to work in a lot of situations.
This ep is a refreshing mix of old school and new school recorded to the max quality. With Aubrey remixes coming up of Marky Star (feat Tyree Cooper) and a remix for Dimitri Pike (Wildtek Concept) on the desk, plus a vinyl reissue coming in November this year of his classic Dark 4 with remixes by Mike Parker (Geophone recs) and PendleCoven(Modern Love) this looks like a come back from a long overlooked artist.

SC002 – Aaron Chase “Touch” Supa Cutz – ELECTRO HOUSE
The second release on Charles Feelgood's label Supacutz Recordings features an original offering from Chicagos own Aaron Chase. Chase being a producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist his talents definitely shine through with this release. Aaron describes his sound as "electronic industrial" and these influences really come though on "Touch". With dark, distorted vocals and dirty synth lines, Touch brings forth some serious attitude to the dancefloor.
The first remix is by Chicago based DJ/producer Brian Boncher aka "Breakdown B". Boncher drops some serious funk on the remix. With absolutely sick synth lines, chunky, jackin beats and dope edits on the vocal, this one will cause some serious damage on the dancefloor.
Next up is a remix by South African DJ/producer Raymond Mather. Remixing such acts as Defunct! and Kyle Watson not to mention releases on labels such as Destination?, Junky Trunk and Champion Beats, Mather has put out some serious fidget house tunage and this remix is no different. With jackin beats, dirty ass fidget basslines and some seriously insane breakdowns this one is a must for any fan of fidget.
Last up is a slammin remix by Los Angeles based DJ/producer Jayvon. This one is serious peak time gear. Bangin electro beats, funky samples and crazy edits give this remix an insane vibe that will create havoc in any peak time set.
Another diverse release from Charles Feelgood's label that showcases talent from the US and abroad. From pumpin electro to jackin techno house to fidget and back this release will appeal to djs across the board.
