Debut album from Massimiliano Pagliara. Massimiliano has got the chug on lock, keeping the tempo around a sensually sub-110 bpm over 13 tracky grooves intended for the connoisseurs and the steamiest points of the night. Fairly simple stuff, but very effective.
New release from Falty Dl on All City Dublin Records. As tight and punchy as you expect, this is two addictive slabs of fast paced house with a distinctly 90s US influence with a shout to Minister Farrakhan on vocal duties.
Chief Alchemist Aybee kicks it off with an 11 min voyage into deep astral soundscapes. ‘N#ggas and Space Machines’ plunges into late night space travel, and finishes off with the smoothed out vibes of ‘Steps’. This is some seriously beautiful futuristic house music.
First release of Downbeat Black label, the sublabel of Downbeat dedicated to slow 4×4 electronics. Juju & Jordash provide Avian Oasis, an exquisite and delicate 4×4 piece with a special guest: an old Hohner Melodica that envelopes the track in mystery. On the other side, Solaris. A complex sci-fi soundtrack full of field recordings in continuous movement made by Downbeat illness.
