Specter: The Gooch (Sound Signature)

Now and Then: Ten Years of Hudd Traxx

Hudd Traxx turns ten in 2015, and part one of their landmark anniversary compilation packs one hell of a wallop. It's easy, as we all know, to release records like you're making a festival flyer:...

Afrikan Sciences: Means and Ways EP

Seriously, I almost flipped my wig when I first heard the tunes on this 12" from Oakland's Eric Douglas aka Afrikan Sciences. This is soundscaping at work as unique waveforms are presented with three...

Harry Wolfman & Laurence Guy: The Lone Grazer EP

Having just heard the sad news that the brilliant Lost My Dog Records are to close their doors in 2015, I must confess that writing this review feels bittersweet to say the least. Young...

DJ Skull: The Dark Knight EP (Sect)

Cinthie and Ed Herbst: Beste 005

I've been finding some dope split EPs and choice cuts from the always prolific "Various Artists" lately, and this split between Cinthie and Ed Herbst for Beste Modus (Berlin) was near the top of...

Dan Curtin’s “Deserted Station” on 10″ Wax for Melodymathics

Melodymathics consistently releases terrific records from some of my heroes and my heroes' heroes: Alex Agore is a frequent flyer by now, and had a fantastic Record Store Day release with the label that...

Crookers ft. Kym Mazelle: A Place In My Heart

I could just as easily shine the light on the new Joeski on Defected, or the remixes of Spencer K & Matt Sassari on DFTD. There have been some stellar releases lately in this...

Andy Ward and Random Soul: Come Together (The Remixes)

Being a fan of Soulful House has never been an easy one for me. Perhaps because I'm too picky, or maybe it's because I sometimes find it a little boring. Either way, I've persevered...

Boo Williams teams up with vocalist Cei Bei with an assist from Glenn Underground on drums for this twisted-up throwback to an era of '70s soul with today's Deep House. The vocal brings to...
