Oh golly, after an excruciating wait I had a tonne of records plopped on my head by the postman last week which I'll drizzle out over the next fortnight. Sorry for being lazy - however our DSR001 CDs have arrived and there has been much to do! More news on that soon. Been wanting to get my mitts on this Freddie Mas record for yonks and I'm happie to say it's really something fab. It certainly doesn't have that savage edge that I'm used to with Freddie's stuff - but it's got plenty of Codek druggy sleaze and tongue-in-cheek quirk. The B-side is fucking hot too, you can pick up a copy of this bad boy pretty cheap on Discogs so get on it!
Freddie Mas - What I Remember About You [buy]
The latest Space Ranger record is just lovely. Although it's got remixes from Rayko and Ajello, the two original tracks are the hotties for me. Beefy cosmic house beats with some pretty slick sound effects. Sadly missed out on the last 12" so this is a nice consolation. Great for when the club begins to get a bit hot and heavy!
Space Ranger - Superstring [buy]
A couple of other things here - a wonderfully funky edit from MagneticSoul which is beautifully cut up, and a really spectacular albeit simple Rio Lobotomy op on Nick Cave's Red Right Hand. A DJ's dream. I'm thrilled at how tastefully it's been done, using very calculated restraint to allow the rolling bassline to retain control of the groove. Really loving both of these. I'll post the Rio remix from our label's first release in a week or so, keep an ear out!
