Two Dogs In A House – Dog House [LIES002]

Debut release by Two Dogs in a House comprised of Jason Letkiewicz (Steve Summers, Maloveaux, RBL) and Ron Morelli of the L.I.E.S. label. Continuing in the tradition of producing old school analog house tracks with a twist, LIES 002 takes it to the more melancholy side of the Chicago and New York spectrum with brooding basslines and hand played melodies.

Surgeon DJing at The Bunker, NYC.

Are there DJs that you’re still looking to for inspiration?

Sure, of course. Quite recently I realized it had been a long time since I’d really connected with a lot of music that Jeff Mills had been releasing. But then I heard him play a set on this Japanese streaming site, and it really clicked. I was in Japan at the beginning of May, and I pretty much listened to the soundtrack to Blade Runner non-stop. I was really, really jetlagged and I was walking around in this kind of haze and it was really amazing. I’ve kind of got a bit obsessed with the soundtrack now.

I remember a long time ago Jeff saying how big an influence Blade Runner was for him. So the whole thing kind of made sense when I heard his set on that site. I saw one of his records that he was playing, and it said “Blade Runner” on it, and the whole thing came together. It’s really exciting to feel connected again to Jeff’s music. There’s really been a lack of sci-fi in techno for a long time I think.

It seems like you’ve all gone away from it a little bit.

Yeah, I mean it doesn’t have to be like this obvious and corny thing. Do you know what I mean? There can be music with some kind of sense of… you could almost call it science fiction… but it’s not quite.

What else are you excited about right now in terms of the future? What’s next?

Well, I’m doing a live audio-visual thing at the Awakenings Festival tomorrow. I’ve done a few live A/V things. But I’ve reworked it a lot. It’s a lot deeper now. I’m working quite closely with my wife, who is doing the VJing, in choosing the source material.

So many times DJing, I will turn around and look at the screen behind me and think, “That really doesn’t connect with the kind of feeling or message that I’m trying to get across.” Controlling it makes it a more complete experience. A lot of the source material comes from very old Super 8 footage. Stuff from Derek Jarman and Richard Kern as well. We also managed to get a hold of some material from the first-ever motion pictures which is pretty interesting in the way that you have this kind of deterioration. The artifacts in the material. You have this organic source material, but you’re presenting in a way that’s not.

That’s quite science fiction in a way.

Yeah, I think there’s a very deep concept with this where it comes back to—and is most easily described as—the Kraftwerk man-machine idea. That’s an idea that crops up very frequently in science fiction, doesn’t it? The merging of human and machine.

Delphic – Doubt [PM001]

disc

Another unlikely yet highly successful remix excursion for Delphic, picking up an uber-limited one-sided rerub from Detroit’s Kyle Hall. There’s practically no trace of the original to be heard, just a damn fine exhibition of Motor City techniques, shaking slightly broken drums under filtered and flanged keys, locking into a sweetly sensual loop of house magic.

Kidkut – ILove04 [PIPS013]

Kidkut - ILove04 / Lilt image

Immerse records chief Kidkut presents two breakbeat heavy workouts for Apple Pips. ‘ILove04’ edits a live and crispy drum break over dutty dark garage bass and misty-eyed hardcore pads with a respectful nod to Dego or Seiji, while ‘Lilt’ arranges wickedly melodic Afro-Latin drums with a breezy Broken Beat swing.

Kidkut – ILove04 [PIPS013]

Peverelist – Better Ways Of Living [DRUNK017]

Peverelist - Better Ways of Living

Peverelist drops two righteously forward riddims for Punch Drunk. The Bristol ringleader has built his rep on quality, not quantity and these tracks bear testament to his principled and stringently executed approach. ‘Better Ways Of Living’ nods to the pared down 808 aesthetic of Swamp 81 with a brittle bustling beat scaffold acting like monkey bars for a piped synth organ to twist, scuttle and roll around in, while ‘Fighting Without Fighting’ continues the rhythmically busy flex with slick dipping edits and bespoke dub measurements applied in a future jungle-hardcore style.

Jam City – Ecstasy (Refix) [NSWL004]

JAM CITY - Ecstasy (refix) (Front Cover)

Night Slugs announce the latest installment in their white label series – the much-anticipated debut 12” of London producer Jam City. On the A side, the psychedelic grime interplorer ”Ecstasy Refix” glows with warmth at its analog core. A jubilant tribute to the art of the grime refix, the track simultaneously recalls two disparate by-gone eras, to devastating effect. On the B side, Night Slugs favorite ”Let Me Bang Refix” drowns a gutter house classic in sheer beams of searing fluorescent synth. Jam City borrows a vintage Wiley meme on closing track ”Shut The Lights Off (Devil Mix)”, all but void of a drum kit it hangs in suspension, awash in sublime synths.
