Andrew Red Hand finally joins the Lobster main family. He takes you deep into the night with haunting synth lines, deep chicago grooves and proper drum machine battery on his latest effort for the LT UNDR sublabel.
Up next on Phonica White is Brooklyn based artist Justin Cudmore. ‘Twisted Love’ gets straight to the point, with firm and strong percussion joined to a fickle acid bass line. In addition to this, Justin weaves in some House-flavoured vocals to keep you hooked until the end of the track. A certified floor-filler of a track. On the flip is ‘About to Burst’, a track that starts with a powerful kick drum and grows with new emerging elements; punchy hi-hats coming and going in key moments and a simple keyboard arpeggio that added to an Acid bass line catches you instantly.
New from Nite Vision who are Nigel Rogers (Perseus Traxx, Northern Powerhouse) and Craig Stainton (Acid Phreex, Mantra, Monofonix, Myriadd) with a slamming techno track plus a wicked remix from Canadian mainman Rennie Foster, pressed on limited edition, hand stamped & numbered one-sided black vinyl housed in a white paper sleeve with a printed insert info sheet.
This EP showcases a wider style than previous Myriadd EPs, and the tracks here are a mixture of dancefloor focused tracks and the more etherial, emotive style that listeners associate with this artist.
A selection of three acid-tinged cuts here, from Mantra, who has previously released on labels such as Bunker, Abstract Acid and Solar One Music. The EP’s title track, Exhale, is a flowing, hypnotic number with tripped out reverb washes and a mesmerising lead line that rises and falls for the duration of the track, putting the listener in a meditative state. Transmutation is more focused on the dancefloor, although at the same time more off-kilter, with shamanistic percussive rattles and and uneasy 303 line sitting over a pulsing bassline. Black Light is the toughest of these three cuts, with a creaking acid line combined with heavier percussion that gives a nod to the city that spawned the genre, and the originators of the sound.
2018 Repress. Clinically but relentless jacking acid as if 88 was yesterday.
