A series of drum sections on this track leapfrog one another with precision coordination, cascading along with an effortless flow. Built around a Funkyish rhythm, rolling hand drums bring a deep green coolness to the hard grey underpinnings of programmed exactness and pulsating circuitry. But a mood of gravity pervades the track, hinting that its unrelenting pace is born of necessity. Equatorial nature reclaims landscapes altered by advanced societies, while untended facilities threaten to rupture. Lamin dropped this free download earlier in the month to raise awareness for his new single on Sticks N’ Stones Recordings. The vinyl version drops today, so go cop that. (Photo by Steve Bayens.)
With a piano sample seemingly lifted from my favourite house song of all time Pete Heller’s Big Love, this stomping classic house tracks gets a vocal kick from Bizarre Inc’s ‘I’m Gonna Get You’. Basically a load of good stuff thrown together with that classic LOL Boys feel, the guys even put this track in the ‘Feel Good’genre on their soundcloud.
Mixpak fam Schlachthofbronx have been locked up in the studio preparing their brand new full length, Dirty Dancing, for Disko B records. This is the first double A-side release from the album, with ‘Slowine’ and ‘Dickie Riddim feat. Warrior Queen’ (we’d been wondering where WQ had gone, and glad she’s back), and needless to say it’s a bomb. Pre-order it now.
