Mr. Fingers – Mr. Fingers 2016 [ML2231]

Alleviated Records present the new Mr. Fingers EP. After many years of the moniker being dormant and a long journey trying to get back into a creative mindset, we have a new offering. First up, “Outer Acid” delivers up a Minimal-Space-Acid flavor. Next, “Qwazars” continues the Space motif with a Minimal-Tech touch. “Nodyahed” moves toward a Dark Club Bounce with a dash of Tribal flavor. “Aether” offers up a more late-night Ambient-Space-House flavor.

FCL – It’s You [DFTD394]

The record that keeps on keeping on!  To begin with it was only the FCL guys themselves and a few trusted friends who had a copy of this ferociously uplifting vocal record, but We Play House Recordings eventually released vinyl copies of the record late last year. Now signed to Defected and played, heard, sung and screamed everywhere from Berlin to Miami, this remix package from 2 of the most established names in House Music and one of the hottest guarantees that it’s surely set to conquer the Mediterranean over the Summer months.

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!
