Clone’s label founder Serge with his buddy Alden Tyrell on the case with some hot jacking tracks. Like the rest of the Clone Jack For Daze series, House Countdown adheres slavishly to the ideals of Chicago. And while this may not be the most limitless arena for Clone founder Serge Verschuur’s return—apart from remixes, he’s been out of the production game for 15 years—the duo’s three jack tracks prove sound examples of refinement.

Legowelt – The Paranormal Soul [CJFD016]

Insubordinate and averse to anything going on in the EDM world the dutch derelict of techno is back with a luminous new album on Clone Records. Steamy and mysterious as ever The Paranormal Soul is advancing the trademark Legowelt sound into new directions. Mangling up the historical foundations of New York, Detroit, Chicago and early U.K Rave, mixing it with seedy witchcraft rituals and deep space psychedelics for a boundless journey into techno mysticism.

Morning Factory – Anna Logue’s Sleepover [CJFD014]

https://i2.wp.com/www.residentadvisor.net/images/reviews/2012/clonejackfordaze-014.jpg

Back to its roots with some deep and powerful Chicago house tracks. This time its Morning Factory on duty with a beautiful melodic and emotive two tracker. No secret that the Clone Jack For Daze series is inspired by the heritage of Chicago house music in all its forms. Morning Factory are taking us back in a time machine to the early days of Chicago labels such as Relief, Warehouse and Dance Mania whit releasesof guys like Tim Harper, G-Strings, Paul Johnson and Ron Trent. Back then young guys who were pushing bounderies with deep emotive house tracks containing a raw machine funk that was an essential part of house music in that period of the late 80’s and very early 90’s. The days that fragile melodies and layers of strings got combined with fierce energetic drum machine rhythms expressing the energy and moods of the young producers doing things never heard before with hardly any references other then some guys from around the block.

Paul du Lac – Child’s Play [CJFD012]

Three new and raw box tracks by Paul du Lac, who seems to be pushing his minimalistic jackin’ sound palette even further. We have the fierce and autistic-tantristic dirtyness of ‘Tantra Master’, the Dance Mania flavoured funk of ‘Childs Play’, and the deep strings of the bassline-driven ‘Spaces Below’, a classic Chicago-inspired piece of work that seems to come from deep within.

Alden Tyrell ft Mike Dunn – Touch The Sky [CJFD011]

Alden Tyrell hooked up with Mike Dunn for some new work!. Tyrell always jamming and playing around with his synths had some tracks inspired by early Mike Dunn songs. So the obvious happened… the hooked up for some appropiate vocals and here it is….”Touch The Sky”! A peak time acid monster with Mike’s vocal chant in the style of his classic MD3 projects. Gerd is on remix duty here and delivers a killer remix with a more traditional Chicago groove and build up. Clone head honcho Serge had some studio time with Tyrell for a dub mix. The Serge & Tyrell dub mix turned out a bit wild and became a classic piece of piano and dx bass driven Chicago house music with stuttering vocal samples and a acidic synth line.
