DJ CLAIRVO: Rally In Paris EP (2016)

Rally In Paris EP ClairvoDJ Clairvo steps out from behind his Lack Jemmon project with Kid Panel once more to keep the revs up on his Rally In… series – this time with Rally In Paris. Inspired by what sounds like a recent high-octane point-to-point sojourn in the city of love racing from djing in clubs to djing in bars to djing house party after house party, Clairvo tries to aurally recreate his madcap hijinx with this

BMD: Funk It Up (2016)

Funk It Up BMDFormer Tru:Funker BMD is back in the production seat with new single Funk It Up. In fact not so much ‘funk it up’ as ‘big beat it up’ as he goes hell-for-leather after the sound that once defined the Heavenly Social club – pounding uptempo breaks and a 90s take on the kind of noise that post-punks ESG used to make in the clubs of NYC back in the early 80s.

And while the members of this hand

LEYGO: Leygo Remixed (2013)

The Relative Dimensions gang deliver another interesting experiment from the leftfield of the bass/ ghetto funk/ electro swing axis here in the form of four remixes of tracks off Leygo‘s Walk N Talk EP – specifically one of the title track and three of the swinging standout Raggy Mop. Hungarian Mustbeat man Clairvo slows up Walk N Talk enough to make it a trip-hop amble n mumble

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 11 & 12 (2013)

Updating dusty old classics for modern tastes is a thriving party breaks industry. Sometimes the man agrees and sanctions an official edit. Typically, he doesn’t – mainly because he usually wants all of the profit from such releases. It’s a practice which forces producers underground and results in the man getting none of the profits.
