Jordan Zawideh – Acid Series Vol. 3 [IT-40]

The Acid Series celebrates over 10 years of No Way Back, with music that directly references that experience. Jordan Zawideh’s music perfectly reflects his personal migration from Detroit to Chicago. It somehow combines the raw elegance of a Larry Heard demo (listen to the demos of ”A Path” or ”Acid Dreams” and cry) with Detroit Techno and an unconscious take on the sonic exploration of Drexciya, showcased in songs like ”Magellanic Cloud” and ”Trails of Sophia”. In Jordan’s sound, the raw power of the cassette era of Chicago House combines with a Detroit Acid Dream. Gay Marvine and BMG complete the package with two edits.

Funkadelic – Reworked By Detroiters [SEW3158]

Funkadelic have created an enduring legacy, and the power of their impact is visceral in Detroit. Their records not only played with genre, but possessed a diabolical sense of humour that led to music domination by the late 70s with Parliament, Funkadelic, Parlet, Bootsy’s Rubber Band and the Brides Of Funkenstein all releasing albums the same year for two years in a row. The music itself is beyond stereotype, but equally huge is that they were a black band not allowing themselves to be limited by anyone else’s notions of who they could be, having a massive impact on the next generation of Detroit music, Detroit Techno. But more than just Techno, it is a freedom of thinking that extends beyond boxes, so we included all sorts of today’s generation of Detroit musicians and producers to show the wide range of music that was Funkadelic and how these ideas are still contemporary, they endure and inspire.

Gay Marvine – Bath House Etiquette Vol. 8 [BHE008]

Bath House Etiquette Vol. 8 continues the devastation from Gay Marvine: totally transformed Donna Summer, a Prince disco edit that removes all the vocals, his Liaisons Avant Apres Mars master edit, and Iggy Bowie Eno Sister Midnight.

Gay Marvine presents 4 new reworks… A1 Burning Love – ”Burning Love Breakdown”: Juan Atkins once claimed this to be his favorite 12” from the ‘disco’ era, which would have been called progressive in Detroit. A2 Southern Freeze – ”Southern Freeez”: A natural palate cleanser, this jam is both smooth and jagged, putting together elements found in First Choice and Steely Dan in a perfect Jazz dance floor context. Pre-synth genius from John Rocca. B1 Sweet Secret – ”Frozen Faces”: Transforming the classic German Synth Pop jam into a more uptempo floorfiller. Please take her advice and dance. And dance. B2 On The EMS – ”On The Run” (Pink Floyd, 1973). Finally an easy to DJ version of this synth classic. Given a steady jacking rhythm and slowed down to 130 from the original 165, this cut will rock floors for the adventurous DJ.

Gay Marvine – Bath House Etiquette Vol.3 [BHE003]

Gay Marvine presents Bath House Etiquette Vol. 3… 1 Anxiety into Ecstasy – A clever take on a peak moment for the dance floor, fusing pieces of Chicago’s classic ”Street Player” (it was such a small space in time, I never knew what I would find, a musical path for all to see, anxiety into ecstasy) with the classic beats of The Bomb! which famously sampled the original for Henry Street in 1995. 2 America – The Bomb goes boom says Prince in this ecstatic take on ”America” found only in parts from the 21 minute 1985 12”. Guaranteed to pump your dance floor into madness. 3 Wait a Minute, Baby – One of the most gentle songs from Stevie Nicks on Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk perverted into a red hanky anthem. This mix is special because it allows you to play an almost folk rock moment as pure hedonistic disco, like a fantasy lost Cocteau Twins cut from 1979. 4 I Hate the Food I Eat – I have nothing nice to say about Sting except he made some also pre-Police Italo and perfectly overacted in Dune. An effortless groove that despite being over 30 years old sounds remarkably contemporary.
