  • House

    1. GLENN UNDERGROUND - 808 SESSIONS

      GU aka GLENN UNDERGROUND is back in the laboratory with 808 SESSIONS. GU's 808 SESSIONS features "ACID JAZZ" which takes House to its rawest form with bubbling 303 acid lines, 808 beats and GU style jazz chords. The flip side takes you higher & higher with the ACID DUB Learn More
    2. THE BLACK MADONNA - Stay

      Having previously impressed on Argot and Home Taping Is Killing Music with her blends of evocative deep house and floor-friendly Chicago rhythms, The Black Madonna tries a different approach on this debut for the recently launched Night Owl Diner label. You could certainly describe both tracks as "Balearic", and there's a real air of wide-eyed positivity about the tumbling melodies, swirling synth-strings and mid-80s pop production of head-nodding deep house cut "Stay". It's pretty darn tasty, all told. Almost as good is "Requiem", which appears to be built around a loop lifted from Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal's "Saturday Love" (with, of course, additional synths and tuneful electronics).

  • Techno

    1. RADIUS - Obsolete Machines

      The entire album has been painstakingly restored from 20 year old cassette tapes, not an easy task but with alluring sonic results. Remastered using Apogee convertors and analog tape to preserve the integrity of the original masters. Learn More
    2. FRAK - Lane Escape

      Sweden's legendary Frak duo must surely be some of the most productive producers of the last 25 years. The two steely tech-heads have released nothing but bangers since their first cassettes on the equally mythical Borft Records, and they haven't changed a drum machine beat since! Never stopping to believe in their vision of techno, they have had a resurgence of sorts over the last five years, a resurrection which has now landed them on DJ Haus' unstoppable Unknown To The Unknown stable. The four tax are classic Frak business, kicking off with the gently acid-laden tone of "Lane Escape", before dissolving into the more electro-minded swing of the similarly metallic "Protes". On the flip, "Long Fork" bangs away like a hammer, thrashing out its detuned bass like it's '93, whereas "Large Function" is all about the beat rattle, swinging and meandering with the typical Frak sway. Excellent party bumpers. Learn More

    1. HAMAD KALKABA AND THE GOLDEN SOUNDS - 1974-1975 (CD) (Pre Order: 08/12/17)

      I remember the day clearly. I was searching for treasures in a record shop in Yaoundé, the Capital city of Cameroon, when suddenly I came across a 7-inch record with a picture of a young man wearing a traditional hat and bearing the marks of several imposing vertical scars on the side of his face, carved when he was just a boy as a reminder of his heritage in the Musgum tribe of the northern part Learn More
