First appearance of this small-scale vinyl imprint from the east of Holland with a split-release by the well-respected Aroy Dee and Perseus Traxx. Both of them are known for their deep analogue house music productions with raw and sharp edges, but most recognizable in their work is the presence of true emotions. This will also be the distinctive element for the labels future output: emotive electronic music with the soul deep within. Honest and unpolished music that is inspired by everyday life, whether it comes from pain or joy. Perseus Traxx kicks off with an immersive, slow building and uplifting track, followed by a moody but hypnotic and slightly acid inspired piece. Aroy Dee takes care of the flip-side, with a dreamy and atmospheric track, and one raw, surprising and energetic cut.
808, 303, 707 & Paris Brightledge on vox, uncompromising acidic bass music. B-side is taken from Paranoid London’s first live set at Warehouse Project, Manchester 2008. Totally improvised, totally live, by the seat of our pants. Acid house with one of the true House greats on vocals.
This inaugural release on Modular Cowboy features brand new material from Cheap & Deep (a.k.a. Jay Ahern) alongside two remixes of “Words, Breaths and Pauses,” a track originally released as a limited edition 12” via Berlin’s Hard Wax shop. The remixes come courtesy of Norman Nodge as well as duo Jonsson/Alter. The release also marks Cheap and Deep’s return to the scene, with the new track “Beautiful,” a modern take on the Chicago acid house tradition, featuring vocals by Crissy Liu with additional production by Morgan Packard.
