Cru Servers - Blubber Tottum

UK 1xLP / Album

Ambient Experimental House Leftfield Hip Hop

A1 - Incubation On Ram Skins

A2 - Shot To Life

A3 - Dorito Rook

A4 - Ark Bile Top-Ups

B1 - Deithe 2 Hansy

B2 - Granite Of Blobs Ghost

B3 - Whale Vomit Windfall

B4 - Accursed Share

For their second release, 12th Isle proudly fling 'Blubber Tottum' into the waxen sonic abyss for your full listening pleasure. The inaugural LP drubbed from the Glaswegian machines of Cru Servers is perhaps best framed as what it would sound like if early life took its first steps out of the primordial gloop, dragged itself ashore, decided to make dance music and discovered they had a knack for it. It dangles precariously in the fault lines between discordantly melodic rhythm tracks, steadily paced chaos and swamp-soaked bass oddities. Laden with eerily familiar samples yet always in a world of its own.

Folamour - Umami

France 2xLP / Album

House Deep House Hip Hop

A1 - Night Of Desirable Objects

A2 - Y'all Right

A3 - Petit Prince Du Macadam

B1 - Ivoire

B2 - Look At Me Or I'll Steal Your Eyes

C1 - Devoted to u

C2 - Oyabun

D1 - Kickflipin' That Stuff

Folamour has worked under a number of different aliases and makes poetic music. As a DJ he has lit up dance floors all over France, and he also runs the FHUO Records label. This new nine track LP is the start of a busy year that promises more music on Church and Defected, all after some fine outings on labels like Fauxpas Music and All City Records. The excellent album is an ode to his love of Japanese culture and mixes up beats and house samples, disco swing and future jazz in ways that work both in the club and your living room.The warm and musical ‘Night of Desirable Objects’ kicks things off with loose jazz chords, shuffling beats and welcoming moods that come from smart vocal samples. It’s a brilliantly heartfelt opener that makes way for the slowed down grooves of ‘Y’all Right.’ Trumpets, live drums and gorgeous chords all exude genuine soul and funk, and ‘Petit Prince Du Macadam’ is an exquisite hip hop beat that echoes the great Dilla.Elsewhere, ‘Ivoire’ is a big, afro-tinged cut with bouncy drums and vocals as well as party-starting percussion. ‘Look at Me or I'll Steal Your Eyes’ then pulls back to perfect loops of funky guitar, trilling chords and organic drum work. Like much of the music here, the loveably rough style of Moodymann is a big presence in this one. French filter styles characterise the sunny disco influenced grooves of ‘Devoted to U’, ‘Oyabun’ is a blissed out bit of romantic house, ‘Kickflipin’ That Stuff’ is another gorgeous hip hop interlude weighed down by hot soul and ‘Jah Love’ is a masterfully melodic piece with splashes of cymbal, brilliant key playing and jazz drums that find their way into your heart.This is a fine artistic statement that comes ahead of tour dates and festivals at clubs all over Europe. As such, it is rightly sure to propel Folamour to the next level.

B1 - Fuorigrotta

B2 - I Did This At Work

B3 - Dumb Ruler

With its debut release, In Any Case is trying to give you the best and dustiest takes on House, Hip-Hop and Disco, packed on one and only piece of wax. We are very proud to showcase five amazing tracks from five different artists from around the world on this first record. Mr. PC from Detroit (US) kicks things off with a stunning Disco edit, “Boogie With Me” delivering a mastered groove throughout the whole title, perfect for all the dancefloors. Then comes “Another Lonely Man” by Martin Hayes from Leipzig (DE). We’re left with a heavy bottomed-end track featuring lush strings and nice vocals. On the flip, we’ve then got Pascal Viscardi from Geneva (CH) and his “Fuorigrotta” that comes from deep, deep down with its heavy kicks cutting through amazing synths and disco loops, packed together with that 90’s SP1200 sampler flavour. Then, Malouane from France (FR) continues the trip with “I Did This At Work”, another bass-heavy groove melting down below some perfectly arranged samples. Finally, we’ve got G2S & Ibn Sabaa from France (FR) with their “Dumb Ruler”, a short and wonky Hip Hop instrumental, blending the Fender Rhodes sound we all love with dripping hats and screwed breakdowns. There is something for every taste here, so jump on it while it’s hot !

A1 - Life Is Rhythm

A2 - Amako

B1 - 667746

B2 - Brasilholzschlaeger

B3 - Stupid Loop

Second round for french In Any Case imprint, still keeping it chopped and dusty, celebrating the sound of the almighty Rhodes electric piano through this 5 tracker wax slab. Opening this release is the fashionable parisian Tell with a cool House cut featuring some lush samples and a driving beat. Following is the label co-founder G2S' track Amako blending a strong backbeat with a groovy bass and chopped Rhodes sample closing A side with a neat Library style feeling. We've then got Malouane (co-founder too) opening the flip with a trippy tune including melty percussions on top of a jungly bassline. Succeeding, Manuel Nie from Germany with a Hip Hop - House crossover, banging drums cutting through perfect Rhodes samples. Finally, Ibn Sabaa is closing the V/A with a mean head-nodding modern Hip Hop groove that will doubtlessly wreck your neck.


Leibniz - Bat EP

Germany 1x12" / 45 RPM

Breakbeat House Grime UK Garage Hip Hop

A - Bat

B1 - Uzi

B2 - 2 Simple

This guy Leibniz is back on Rat Life Records. You might remember him from the collaboration with Credit 00 on Basement Toolz Volume II. This time he goes for a full solo EP. The three course menu consists of a grimy appetiser called "Bat", if your stomach can handle this, we serve "Uzi" as a main course, a whole round of bullets, very hard to digest. "2 Simple" is for dessert, again quite heavy, full of fat and definitely not gluten-free.

A1 - Change

A2 - Like You Wanna

B1 - Tolle

Joy, Ease, Lightness is a 4 track EP aimed squarely at the dancefloor, but with a meditative awareness that reaches far beyond the club. Fans of Seven Davis Jr, Steve Spacek et al, watch out - there’s a new man in Town: and he goes by the name of Dan Kye. Yet another stellar release from the Rhythm Section International Crew - undoubtedly the label to watch in 2016.
