Head Front Panel – HFP 14 [HFP014]

Proper banging techno by Head Front Panel aka John Heckle. Relentless analogue techno tracks rooted in the early and mid 90’s styles. Intense, atmospheric, bass heavy, percussive, raw techno gems for the dancefloor. Includes beautifully crafted + absorbing ambient interludes. A definite nod to Jeff Mills 90’s Axis / Waveform Transmissions.

John Heckle – Translate [030EP013]

John Heckle’s first one for 030303 starts off deliciously with “Translate” being a moody and melodic and bouncer that caters to a twisted dance floor. “Terix”, the opener on the B-side is a beautiful reminder of Derrick May’s Detroit, Rhythm is Rhythm’s “Kao-Tic Harmony” in particular. The end of this record then, is like the end of most nights: with lots of melodies going on and a stomping rhythm “Hear Me” is by far the most mind bending track of this excellent 12″.

Full 3 hours recorded in Cluj in January 2017. A thanks to the Hipodrome and Gazette crews. Great bunker venue & great crowd (a couple of jumping needles towards the end when the room itself was particularly jumping).

VA – Muscles From Outer Space EP [BOSS001]

”In a time of peace and prosperity on Phantom Planet, three unwanted heroes arrive home to seek justice where there is none to be sought. Shunned by modern society, Forsh gets a job at the electricity board, Red Defender snoozes through work at the local news and booze, and Bin Man finally finds his dream job… as a postman. With no evil to lay waste to, they put their dinner money together to create the world’s greatest record label, BOSS TRACKS. Using broken dustpans and Dance Ejay ’98, they create what will go down in history as the most seminal and brilliant piece of musical forgery known to Merseyside. 4 tracks packed full of pure dance floor steroids for your love-pump; this is interstellar muscle music at its finest, let it reach out grab you by the tenderloins! Thank you Phantom Planet Outlaws. Once again the world has been changed forever, for the better.”
