Arttu – UFO Funkin’ / Passing Out Privileges [ROYAL020]

Arttu is back with two tight tracks in his trademark raw jacking house sound. Chicago rooted house music drenched in a heavy dose of interstellar boogie. A-side is the shuffling bassline driven UFO-funkin’ that goes all crazy. AA side is Arttu featuring Detroit’s Jerry The Cat. Both tracks comes in vocal and instrumental version. Instrumentals take things back to the bare essential and are total basement workouts.

Headless Ghost – Frontend EP [ROYAL016]

Clone Royal Oak with a release by Headless Ghost, a production alias of Ripperton delivering three shit hot tracks. Asking what the difference is between Ripperton and his Headless Ghost production he said ””while the headless ghost is doing stuff intuitive, i see what you did there”. Not sure if we completely understand, but the intuitive thing makes sense while listening to the tracks. Killer 3 track ep with a some sharp edged house music.

Arttu ft. Jerry the Cat – Nuclear Funk [ROYAL011]

Arttu aka Lump would be jamming in his Lisbon studio with Detroit’s Jerry the Cat! These tracks are the perfect first collaboration between Arttu, Jerry the Cat and Clone records!! Playful and funky old schoolish house tracks with the joyfull vocals of Mr Cat all recorded during some live sessions in Lisbon where they both reside. Arttu went back to some intuitive drum programming for these live sessions and made simple funky drum machine patterns around nice hypnotic basslines. Vocals and additional percussion still have some of that live feel after the tracks have been arranged and mixed.

Gerd – Palm Leaves Remixes [ROYAL010R]

Two producers on duty for Gerd’s Palm Leaves remixes. Sometimes an amazing track like Palm Leaves just screams for a rework by someone who really could do something nice with it. And this seems to be the perfect remix duo… Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers and Deetron. One for the body and one for the soul!

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS425819-01A-MED.jpg

Debut release on Clone Royal Oak by Morning Factory.  Two tracks that go somewhere between the old and the new school with phat bass lines, filtered stabs, blissful keys and joyful piano and a cheeky vocal on the b-side cut. All that combined with slightly slower pace, powerful production.
