GrooveSource Cycle 175

Pre-Release Date: 10/20/2009
General Release Date: 11/10/2009

PP016 – Dee Green “Sequential” Prosthetic Pressings – TECHNO/MINIMAL
Here you have the latest single on Prosthetic Pressings. From Rome's own Dee Green we present Sequential.

Along with the original version, we have included a remix from Antonio Pocai who was Luca Bacchetti's former production partner on several of his biggest hits. Antonio is currently working with Alex Neri (owner of Tenax Recordings and founding member of Planet Funk and several other famed projects). Antonio has releases on Tenax, Wagon Repair, Richie Hawtin's Minus and several more projects which are in the works. Chicago's own Submerge 101, who's gaining heat every day with constant high praise from techno legends Dave Clarke and Chris Liebing, a new project for Luke Slater about to drop and a European tour which kicks off next month, rounds out the package with a hard hitting floor rumbler of a mix.

Prosthetic Pressings, bringing you the future hits!

A2R723 – Thee-O & Merlyn Martin “Refugee” A-Squared – TECH-HOUSE
A Squared Muzik has been on hiatus for quite some time now. We have been busy with remixes and other things like beer drinking and pizza flinging. Thank you for waiting for us :-). Here is our next installment featuring Thee-O & Merlyn Martin with their very first release on Asquared Muzik entitled Refugee. There is lots to choose from in this package staring with A.Paul's beefy big room techno mix and Johan afterglow's minimal rework that will beat you down in the right way. Meanwhile, Angel Alanis comes up with a surprisingly deep tech house cut that is weird, trippy but fun. Adding to the mix, aKademy steps up with some amazingly smooth dubstep action. As for the other cuts, you will probably recognize a few of the other artists like B.Original with a tribal house remix, Kelly Wills & SKS (tech house), Dj Denise (electro house), and from one of my Favorites "House Of Stank" with some fidget electro action to seal the deal.

Laurent Garnier - will play the HOUSE OF STANK mix

General Release Date: 11/3/2009

JEL045 – Ramon Tapia & BP “Water Melon” Jericho – TECHNO
Having cemented his position as one of the producers in 2008, with a string of genre-defining releases on many leading labels, including Great Stuff, Craft Music, Turbo Records and Yellow Tail, Ramon Tapia is hot property. Here Ramon teams up with production partner BP for this release on Jericho. Water Melon is a fine example of the fluid, groove-filled tech house that has won Tapia so many fans. Supplying ample inspiration for both the head and the feet, the haunting melodies that signature the track are partnered by shifting percussion and wobbly, effect-soaked noises to ensure a good melon twisting. Down At The Offkeys steps up the pace and the intensity, but retains the otherworldly vibe of the EP. Throbbing bass pulses under marching beats, while hissing whispers fade in and out of the buzzing synth loops, that usher in rising sirens to take over the breakdown. A high impact crowd-pleaser for dark rooms.

Cisco - both tracks doing the bizz.full support.
James Talk - nice ep! like down at the offkeys best

SPEC0907 – Ascion & D. Carbone “Shaved” Spectrum Recordings UK – TECHNO
Spectrum Recordings returns after the summer months with a fantastic deep dark two tracker to take us into those shorter nights of the year from Italian duo Ascion & Davide Carbone. The a side 'Shaved' is a stripped down dubby groover, with eerie vocal stabs and spacey edits. This has a seriously tripped out vibe, which is perfect for the after hours, but still with more then enough punch to work at peak time, with some layered percussion or effects. The flip side 'Spectral Town' is a minimal funky track, superbly produced and once again perfect for the after hours. A very cool and classy record from a label stamping its mark on the scene, and still only in its first year of releasing music. Look out for future releases from Ramon Tapia, Gui Boratto and Alan Fitzpatrick... Big things to come!
