Mori Ra – Sleeping Industry [MME7007]

Japanese editor Mori Ra returns with four more perplexing, wonderfully obscure edits on Macadam Mambo; “Acid Indonesia” is an overwhelming experience laced with toxic percussion, gritty bass and buried harmonies. “Canoe Tamburi Sacri” retains the heavy percussive focus while flipping the mood switch for something much slower and meditative. “Sleeping Industry” is the most cosmic number on the release with an array of synths vying for our attention over a wind chime rhythms while “Tsuru-Kame Hinadisco” brings us back into reality with harmonic chimes, steel drums and more dubby overlays than a Kingston cutting house.

VA – Wet Play: Where Good Friends Meet #3 [RL017]

Red Laser’s Wet Play trilogy concludes with four of the juiciest disco treats of the series; “Streetboxx” is a sopping wet electro boogie jam that wriggles so hard its speedos pretty much fall off half way through. “Your Sunshine” splashes down in the early 80s with processed vocals, lounge chords and synth-toms that spurt so hard we should really sell towels with this EP. “Xanthan Gum” dives deep into an Ame-style tech pool while “Another Life” whips up a tsunami of nostalgia thanks to a well known arpeggio and a bassline that’s soaking in boogie feels and refuses to shake itself dry.
