Chris Mitchell – Remnants [AC009]

Anunnaki Cartel is up next with another release from label co-owner Chris Mitchell. This is his follow up to the Din Gir Dialectic EP that was released last year. “Remnants” is a more introspective outing with a sobering feel. These are heady selections for a darker floor, and will satisfy those DJ’s who want to inject this into their sets.

VA – Shtum 010 [SHTUM010]

The first compilation on the Dresden based label shtum unites three label regulars and one newbie with four tracks suitable for rampant basements. “Motorcity Racers” has been on rotation for quite some time amongst the label heads and is the first sign from Poland’s Chino on shtum. It floats somewhere between dirty Detroit and the rough corners of the Netherlands. Leibniz delivers the “Real Life”, a relatively straight follow-up to his latest EP, while Jaures hit their drum machines like there is no tomorrow. Perm’s cut is all loopy and succeeds in creating an irresistible atmosphere with just a few elements.

Michael Ferragosto – Kill All Criminals [DIN011]

Michael Ferragosto is back on Italy’s own Dog in the Night label with four new twisted psychedelic house cuts. As usual we hear the artist taking the traditional blueprints of Chicago House and putting his own signature chops to it resulting in a bizzare mix up of jacking madness that will get the floor going wild.

Credit 00 – Tribal Rhythm Machine [UV037]

Credit 00 strikes back with four cuts between Jungle Funk and sublime Party bombs. “Tribal Rhythm Machine” starts off with subtle but effective drumming that works on the dance floor as much as it could be the soundtrack to your road trip to Utopia. Then there is “Curse Of The Medusa”, a pretty rumbling track that takes full advantage of its super-funky vocal samples and almost explosive percussion action. “Voodoo Soup” fishes in muddy waters with Credit 00’s distinctive drum work and tribal sounds from outer space. The final track “Snake Charmer” is building things up nice and steady. But when the hypnotizing synth melody breaks ground neither serpents nor dancers can resist. The artwork was created by Alexander Dorn a.k.a. Credit 00 himself.
