Gene Hunt – May The Funk Be With You [RH039]

The ‘May The Funk Be With You’ white label gets a full release. Gene Hunt takes a classic warehouse theme and turns it into an almost anthemic, synth laden Chicago jack release. Theo Parrish turns it into a hypnotic eight minute long gospel-techno-jazz work out that just sticks.

Lord Of The Isles – Unthank003 [UNTHANK003]

Lord Of The Isles throws a curveball and gives us the third installment in the Unthank series. Synth sketches, floating ambience and warehouse tracks, taken from a hard drive that time forgot. A journey of whiskey, analogue electronics, Scottish landscapes, nostalgia and underground parties. As usual, there will be only one press with silk-screened artwork from House Of Traps.

A Sagittariun – Carina EP [EDREAMS002]

Bristol-based A Sagittariun’s Elastic Dreams follows up its debut release with a 4 track EP entitled ‘Carina’. The label’s latest, ‘Carina’, combines afrobeat, dub, jazz, Detroit soundscapes and British electronica to create the sort of varied EP that is rarely heard these days. While the tempos, rhythms and feelings shift from track to track there’s a deeper theme that joins them and it’s the unmistakable references to a time when house/techno meant more than heads down, 4/4 club fodder. October delivers a remix of A Sagittariun’s “Carina” and shows yet again why his output is head and shoulders above the rest. Raw, analog and emotive it’s a classic piece of house music that oozes real passion for machines and beats.
