Moon B – Measure Pleasure [PULP005]

The title track ”Measure Pleasure” has that buldging funk bass lying underneath some spacey pads and a great rhythm track. Golden Ivy’s version of the title track is emphasizing on the rhythm even more by adding bursting FX and obese kickdrums. Moon B’s Nada Clouds (A3) is a positive yet exotic journey which should be excellent for summer gig’s on rooftops anywhere in the world. For the B1 Moon B continues with the percussion laden ”PV Hills”, this bit has those signature chord switches and vibe changes, that are creating a very melancholic atmosphere throughout. British master of all things melodic ”Fudge Fingas” flips the original completely, making it more streamlined with just a hint more power.

Life Recorder / Semerka – Track Mood [BH008]

Another strong Bokhari release. Beautiful deep house tracks with a hint to early Chicago and bits of the mid 90’s IDM techno wave from the UK. Side a by Life Recorder and flip side by French producer Semerka (incl Fudge Fingas remix).

Esa – Serenity in a Forbidden Place EP [BUREK006]

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS494610-01A-MED.jpg

Drummer, producer and DJ, Esa Williams aka Mervin Granger has been a resident at Glasgow’s Sub Club for over half a decade, as well as releasing as Mervin Granger and Esa. Esa’s 12” on Burek spans the emotions upon returning to his native South Africa and the trials of becoming acquainted with his new home of Glasgow. Alongside Esa’s original cuts we also have a superb remix from Edinburgh’s Fudge Fingas. The remix encapsulates both of the original tracks and adds FF’s own distinctive slant to them to finish an EP that we are most proud to present.

Fudge Fingas – Untytled EP [FIREC009]

https://i0.wp.com/images.junostatic.com/300/CS473381-01A-MED.jpg

Three new tracks, and the third in a row of releases for the prolific Mr. Fingas. Backed up by fellow Firecracker, Linkwood, this originally came out as a limited 50 copy run release early this year and sold out within minutes. Fingas kicks off proceedings with “Untyltled” – a record that could only come out of the Firecracker camp. Taking inspiration from Detroit and Chicago but giving it that distinctly Firecracker sound – heavy on the keyboard motifs, high fidelity, musically accomplished and well produced. Meandering bleepy melodies contrast with gliding synthlines and a ravey, M1-type bassline. The movement between sections is seamless and will take people on an intoxicating musical journey. Linkwood steps up on side B, “Secret Value” has mysterious, seductive key changes and atmospheres; 16 bar acid sections building up and dropping into lush, blessed-out micro-solos of synthesized flute and exquisite pads. A sonic buffet served to perfection. Finally we get one of Firecrackers trademark interludes, “Minus 616” is a beautifully crafted, neo-classical piano piece. Reverberated into the distance, the piano playing is skillful and emotive and the strange outboard effect it’s processed through gives it that otherworldly, tripped-out vibe.

Fudge Fingas – S.V.T. EP [RH043]

Fudge Fingas aka Gavin Sutherland debuts on Rush Hour with his S.V.T. EP, which includes the modern soul classic ‘Snow Day’, a dream-perfect, lullaby-like, reminiscing-heavy song about a… snow day. ‘Vin 2 Win’ lifts us up and reminisces us back to back to the good old days somewhere in the mid nineties when Underground Resistance was giving is their take on 21st century funk. ‘Trans Pennine Express’ closes off this EP in a delightfully deep manner. A great tune to close off the night, or start up your day.

Fudge Fingas – Amaranthine Labyrinth EP [MAZE004]

After three releases of darkened house, proto rave and weird techno, Holland’s boutique Purple Maze label takes a detour into funky disco territory with Prime Numbers and Firecracker craftsman Fudge Fingas at the helm. His Amaranthine Labyrinth EP is lively, bright and sugary, but still features plenty of complex analogue machinery to get you dancing.

VA – Dekmantel Anniversary Series Part 5 [DKMNTLAS5.5]

Final 12″ in the series with the mighty Redshape killing it one side and Fudge Fingers ending it all on a very positive note. Redshape’s  Flexx is continuing that tradition of quality outputs, being a mid-tempo house-fused techno jam for club heads alike, while Fudge Fingas’ Light My Life is a some subtle yet powerful string-inflected downtempo house track.

Fudge Fingas – What Works [FIREC007]

FUDGE FINGAS - What Works (Front Cover)

New Firecracker 10″. Gavin Sutherland aka Fudge Fingas is the man behind the seventh installment in the cult series, with A-Side cut “What Works” showing a move towards moody, shuffling Detroit house. Remix duties are handed to Vakula and he turns in a memorable, highly atmospheric remix of “What Works”, before another Fudge original, the chiming sea of calm that is “Mass X”, rounds off an essential release.

Fudge Fingas – About Time [PN08]

FUDGE FINGAS -  About Time, PRIME NUMBERS

Firecrackers Fam’s Fudge Fingas drops three heavily romantic house paeans on Prime Numbers ahead of his debut album. The breadth and scope of this EP shows Fudge’s versatile abilities, from slo-throbbing 100bpm house songs like ‘It’s About Time’ which sound like Larry Heard in a dream sequence to the stunning house odyssey ‘MmmHmm’ tipping his cap to Juan Atkins and Tortoise with a crafty 3/4 time signature made for massive dancefloor appeal.
