The Housefactors – Big Bang Theory [ML2307]

Alleviated Records presents the first-time official reissue of one of Larry Heard’s (Mr. Fingers) most coveted aliases: The Housefactors. Big Bang Theory, originally released on Black Market in 1990, sounds like nothing else that we have heard from the man. It sees the Chicago native branch out into the bleepy sounds that were starting to arise across the Atlantic, yet still manages to keep that distinct Fingers soul. A dancefloor sure shot to this day.

Aquatronics – Deep Horizons EP [MS003]

For their third release Magnonic Signals have recruited Aquatronics, a producer whose previous releases show off a penchant for electronics that steer towards a drexciyan sound palate and ethos… The EP kicks off with (+) Wave Gliders a bubbling electro burner with deep warm pads and fizzing 808 drum programming accompanied by thick hypnotic melodies, really sets the tone. (++) Ocen Myst takes us deeper into the abyss with a wonderful low end and glassy synth lines taking centre stage, beautiful and sorrowful electro. (-) Deep Horizons, the title track, is the kind of electro that takes you on a journey through the depths of the pacific ocean, lush warm pads and synths lines full of emotional content, wrapped masterfully over snappy snares and shimmering hi-hats, this track has it all. (- -) Twilight Dive closes the ep in great style, a fat low end over a cracking 4/4 to create a superb electro/techno crossover, a track that is sure to set dancefloors alight. From start to finish this is an EP of pure electro bliss and not one to miss.

Featherstone – Featherstone [ERN001]

New imprint Ernest’s Way delivers its first offering with a debut release from Australian based artist Featherstone. The A-side of this four-track EP offers two highly effective dancefloor cuts that ride the line between many diverse influences of electronic music ranging from acidic electro to the early roots of techno. The B-side follows up with two deeper, heavily emotive tracks that drift into an uplifting, euphoric and dreamy atmosphere whilst remaining complimentary to the driving rhythms that open the EP.
