Got some nice techno / darkish electronic stuff here. This new Soulphiction 12" on Philpot Records is real nice. Kinda somewhere between deep house and lounge acid, it's a nice mellow groove, subdued and warm. Really like the progression and the care taken with the arrangement. Proper quality stuff from ze German producer.

Very fond this remix by our pals Rio Lobotomy for Cosmonaut on their latest Bang Gang 12 Inches release. A slow and large vocal techish thing with the Rio boys' usual exquisite drum programming. Exceptionally tight stuff, I adore their pinpoint groove precision, it's rather unique. The EP is worth lending an ear to, it's fab local talent.

This Kassem Mosse tune is a bit different for me - real dark moody techno which sucks me in deep. Not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure but the hypnotic droning and vast atmospheric landscape make my head cave in a little bit. It's a good thing. Like right after sex when your mind is completely blank and you're in a state of excellent nothingness.

Taking a step back to funkier lands, Melbourne chap Francis Inferno Orchestra is popping out records at a rate of knots. The Nicholas remix of one of his latest efforts is a beautiful deep lounge / bumping house gem, really simple and really quality. Nothing needs to be explained, it just works perfectly and that's that.

We have goooooood shit coming up in November. We're doing a show with Pantha du Prince, a warehouse party with Tornado Wallace playing all night long, a Das Moth gig and a Death Strobe Sunday Sesh. Happy days!
