VA – Machine Funk Is Our Game Volume 4 [KJ047]

The fourth volume of Kraftjerkz’s quintessential compilation series Machine Funk is Our Game is a master class in unapologetic electro. This cohesive comp offers a range of material, from minimal, expressive electro to hard-hitting cuts ideal for peak time floors. “Volume 4″ showcases a vibrant range of artists both fresh and seasoned, including the prolific Serotonin Records labelhead BPMF and Brooklyn-based, Miami-raised Alonzo, who consistently brings his roots and the soul of electro to the foreground. From the sultry, deep, melancholic electro of AFQ and Martial Canterel to the raw, slapping cuts of BPMF, Alonzo and Succisa, this comp delivers on multiple fronts. If you’re a fan of body-oriented machine funk, this one’s a no-brainer.”

Lok44 – 44problems [TRUST038]

Four tracks of jacking outsider electro have escaped Lok44’s petri dish and make up ’44problems’, the artist’s fourth EP for TRUST. Known for his inventive style ever since his sought-after 2003 debut ‘Ghetto Of The Mind’, Lok44 continues to defy conventions – from infectiously twitching opener ‘Spandex’, across acid-tinged electric funk bangers ‘Volta’ and ‘Dexta’, to the contemplative bass manoeuvres of ‘She’s In’.
