Audiojack: No Equal Sides (20:20 Vision)

Slum Science: 10 Years of Virtue and Vice (Hudd Traxx)

I love that these guys did this. After several years in limbo, the lads are back with Slum Science album of unfashionably downtempo, trippy and funky tunes. This sound isn't particularly hip at the...

Andre Bonsor: Elements of Nature (Adaptation)

Hallelujah - it's a release that is based around actual melodies rather than sampling! Andre Bonsor is no stranger to the world of House Music, being a member of Schmoov! and also having worked...

Lester Fitzpatrick: Sick

Nothing subtle here: a nine track album released without much fanfare from a guy that makes techno you wish the mainstage gang with corny DJ names still did. DJ Temporal Lobe and DJ Paralegal...

Dimitri From Paris Remixes “Kill The Lights” from TV Show Vinyl

Specter: The Gooch (Sound Signature)

Abacus Presents iDrum: iDrum This Djembe (This Is Not a Bongo)

Various: Midwest Collective Vol 7

Enduring a sad hiatus, one of the best synthwave labels returns with a new compilation for 2017.

Latin Soul Brothas: Jingito

Twelve inches of steely funk and garage soul for the masses from Chicago's Latin Soul Brothas.

Recloose: Honey Rocks

Eyes closed or eyes wide open, you can get lost in the labyrinth of abrupt shifts, resets and layered glimpses of the maniac world inside Recloose's mind.

Rareified Air from Keith Worthy, Hieroglyphic Being & Steven Tang

Made in Detroit and remixed in Chicago, three guys I love a lot come together for Aesthetic Audio.
