APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
Bottom Out - Tessela - R&S

Less is indeed more. ‘Bottom Out’ works the minimal line hard; heavy phased snares, a hint of machine funk, rubberised basslines and space, a lot of space. Remixer Kowton gathers all the parts and squeezes out a slither more persistence. A superb example of two producers pushing the limits of the drum, snare and machine melody. ‘Total Music’ sees Russell deconstruct his sound further, eschewing direct drums and plotting rave abstraction and decay.

Tonight - Earl Sixteen - Reggae Roast

The 1967, stone-cold rocksteady classic from Keith & Tex (written by Derrick Harriot), given the 2015 treatment by Dreadzone’s Earl Sixteen. It’s all there: the smooth, rolling and ultimately sexy rubadub riddim in a digi stylee, with Earl doing a sterling effort matching the sultry and soulful vocals of the original.

The Chronicles - Kenny Larkin - Rush Hour

Less a re-release than a bona fide public service, this repressing of tracks from Kenny Larkin's seminal 'The Chronicles' deserves a spot in everyone's collection. Perfection.

Parody/Progresso - Bottin - Bear Funk

Unstoppable disco machine Bear Funk keeps turning out these quality releases, and over the years we’ve heard some gems from the likes of Todd Terje, Idjut Boys, Brennan Green and Lexx. Now, Steve Kotey’s label makes some more room for one of its longest-serving members, the giallo-disco operator, Bottin, who is back with two tracks of tense, atmospheric, electronic disco; including a collaborative effort with familiar, Rodion. Ace.
