Killer edit of Mikey Dread’s ‘Saturday Night Style’ that can turn heads and the direction of a night in one fell swoop. Kevin Gorman’s productions – under the moniker Adesse Versions – have quickly become some of our favourites and this track is taken from our personal favourite release of his – the Dread At The Controls EP. Adesse Versions first came onto our radar with his re-working of Photek’s 1997 track ‘Modus Operandi’ and he takes on Photek’s ‘Into The 90s’ on this EP too. Well worth grabbing a copy.
Glenn Underground has been in the game for a long time. Born in 1971, he was brought up in Chicago on the finest jazz, soul and disco music while witnessing the birth of Chicago House. Continue reading
Released on Australian label This Thing Tapes & Records but brought to the world by the fantastic People’s Potential Unlimited – Mike Kay’s ‘Low Altitude’ is the A-side of an expensive EP with no frills (don’t expect a disco bag on this one!) – but one that’s worth every penny.
A stripped-backed analogue house stomper teamed with a robot gone wrong, these are serious 80s throwback sounds – all chrome knobs and wooden cabinets – the kind that Australian producers seem to be nailing right now (see – Harvey Sutherland). On first listen it can seem sparse, but it’s on a system when this thing comes to life. Tried and tested.
Dutch producer Dollkraut sweeps in with a dark & funky jam. Sounding like a jacked up gypsy robot has been shot into the stratosphere, it dings and whizzes. It’s got a good old fashioned breakdown as well, before we return to the welcome funky thump toward the end of the track. Hypnotic sound – and a cracking little cover. All in all worthy produce. Bravo.
Hopefully more to come over the course of the year… watch this space.
