INTEC TO TAKEOVER FABRIC

Intec Allstars takeover the whole of Fabric...
6 EP III - Headman - Relish

This latest release on Headman’s Relish label draws upon talent from a pool of some of the most exciting producers around — synth-pop futurist Brassica; Comeme’s proto house/new wave producer, Alejandro Paz; London-based Shift Work and the excellent, Lithuania-based Manfredas. Hard to pick a favourite from the pack, but Manfredas’ brilliantly skewed take on the Headman/Brassica collaboration sits alongside the supercool version from Alejandro Paz as ones not to skip.

Jealousy - Roisin Murphy - Crosstown Rebels

She’s always had a knack at finding and working with some of the more interesting producers; take for example the leftfield pop smash, ‘Overpowered’, that she wrote with the brilliant Seiji. This time, the ex-Moloko frontwoman Roisin Murphy colludes with umbral production stalwart, Parrot, who over the years gave his Midas touch to Sweet Exorcist, All Seeing I and his own Crooked Man project. Ahead of a new album project, her Crosstown Rebels debut is a heady brew of potent, disco hedonism — brash, sassy and unyielding — whilst being an effortlessly sophisticated piece of music. Top marks.

Bodied EP - Gunkst - Terrorhythm

Never a label to churn out the same old stuff, Terrorhythm releases material that often exists on the fringes. Denver resident, Gunkst, personifies this perfectly, delivering a kinetic blend of classic American EDM with plenty of trap and footwork notes, but with blurs of dubstep and some nicely leftfield vibrations.

Big Sex Thing EP - Sex Judas - Marketing

Heavy disco vibe on Tim Paris’s ace Marketing label, featuring an angled, new wave fix from the man himself and a trackier touch from Scandinavian producer, Arttu, who’s appeared on labels like Clone and Lux in the past. Nice 'n’ sleazy, this chirpy release is filled with choppy guitar licks and fx, for that authentic touch, and features a bubbling electronic tribute to the Stones’ troubled early '70s era with ‘Cocksucker Blues’.
