VA – Workshop 28 [WORKSHOP28]

YONE KO/KIKI KUDO/IKU SAKAN/YPY - WORKSHOP 28

German label Workshop offers up a four track VA packed with gold. It kicks off with the lush and ambient-laced deep house of “Strip Down to E” before taking off with the wonky chord hits, off balance drums and withering sci-fi effects of “Grand Street Piano”, which is rave re-imagined. Things get as deep as you’d expect of a track called “Cerebral Repertoire” with its crystal clear and reflective pads, then “Zero” catches you off guard with its skittish rhythms and unusual arrangement. As always here, Workshop have cooked up some truly beguiling brilliance. Excellent leftfield House compilation.

Metshka & Roman Delore – Stara Zagora EP [APC001]

Metshka and Roman Delore met at the heart of vibrant Paris. One was more into Djing, the other into production, but they instantly felt a strong musical connection, sharing a common vision of underwater, detailed and a bit nostalgic techno. Here they started their collaboration then created their own label, Aperçu Records. Soon after, Stara Zagora EP was born. Strongly inspired by their childhood memories, plains of Bulgaria and warm coasts of the south of France, these three tracks are a perfect representation of their mental soundscapes.
