MM Discos originally emerges from the passion of two friends who share the same fondness for records made just of vinyl, after years spent hunting, collecting and spinning them. This is driven by the intention of bringing to light the work of talented newcomer artists.
A mainstay in NYC jazz & dance music in the 70s, his drum machine & synth based cover of William Devaughan’s ”Just Be Thankful” on Profile Records in ’83 gives the jam a haunting & funky rework. Unreleased reference mix. EU pressing.
More Hip Edits – this time provided by Edit Piafra & Johannes Albert. Starring unlimited vinyl only with music to make you cry… ahem dance. These tunes were rediscovered in a lonesome backyard in Monza, Italy. Straight recorded from original cheese plates and abletoned up for today’s DJ needs.
Essential 4 track EP of deep disco and summer soul, boogie house and steady groovin funk edits. All tracks are given Magnetic Souls expert disco dub treatment focusing on grooves, added presence and beefed up bottom end for a solid dance floor feel. The A side enters the spacious tropical House vibes of Summer Love and the delightful slow building soul strings and vocal of Universal Love. The B side hits first with some low slung, raw funk grooves with added brass stabs and leaves us on psychedelic soul funk, la Gil Scott of Cold Outside.
It’s some 15 years since Ashley Burchett first donned the Ø [Phase] moniker to lay down some surging London techno for Cosmic Records. A decade and a half on, he continues to impress with the moodiness and atmospheric intent of his hypnotic dancefloor concoctions. There’s much to enjoy on this second full-length – his debut album, Frames Of Reference, dropped in 2013 – from the intergalactic electronics and Drexciyan beats of “Remote”, and the looped marimba melodies and sludgy pulse of the title track, to the bleak, ghostly hypnotism of “Increment”, and hustling broken techno of “Nep-Tune”. This is proper techno for the dancefloor, with enough subtle variations and neat ideas to please all but the pickiest of listeners.
Late 90’s style looped techno on the reliable Mord Records. Frantic and pounding tracks.
