Jus-Ed “I didn’t know of Aybee until recently after I met him through Fred P. Fred had played this classic track called “build her” by Delaroix which turns out to be Aybee! This EP bridges the gap between Afro House and Tech House. Guaranteed to move the crowd!”
Time for the next release of the Mojuba-labelboss Don Williams to continue his Detroit-series on a.r.t.less after Sven Weisemanns Shove EP. The main title > Vector Dance< takes a different way to approach things than its predecessors on the Black and Red EP! Witness the funk and groove that brought us the city from the D combined with a scifi-feel which embodies the vision of techno for many of us! The second track is a soulful ride into deep glimmering field of hi-tech emotions!
Hot on the heels of his well-received Horror Disco album Bottin delivers the strongest track and a solid remix package. UK based Nu-disco pioneers Faze Action deliver their second mix for Bearfunk and it’s a belter. The vocal becomes secondary as they go straight for the dancefloor jugular. Percussion, groove and rolling electric bass drive this floor-led outing.
$tinkworx, a.k.a. JT Stewart, grew up in rural upstate New York in the Albany area. Being the son of an infamous record collector; Mike Stewart (to this day operating one of the highest regarded rare record shops in the world), music was constantly heard in the Stewart home. JT decided he wanted to try to make some electronic music. Luckily he received a vintage analog synthesizer (a Roland JX8P) as a gift from his parents. He acquired a cheap drum machine and more pieces of equipment and started making songs. He sent them to his favorite labels, and received overwhelmingly responses from Morgan Geist (Metro Area) at his Environ label, and from Russ Gabriel (Ferox). But having only cheap recording equipment and little money, it would be a while before any $tinkworx material being released.

Fostered by the hungry eclecticism of The I-F’s legendary Cybernetic Broadcasting System and the music communities that have gathered in its wake, Bas roR has been DJing around Rotterdam for some time (in clubs and on the radio) and has already notched a memorable EP with Kubra’s “Control Issues,” a collaboration with DJ Tim for Arne Weinberg’s AW Recordings. Like much of the Kubra record, Bas roR’s solo debut recalls the deep and the weird of 90’s techno. The brushed percussion, bright melodic squiggles and brooding chord patterns of the title track, for example, are pure zero-gravity, practically describing a slow drift through a meteor shower.
