Snuff Crew – I Love Acid Fifteen [ILA015]

A poignant and thoughtful EP from Berlin duo Snuff Crew, dedicated to their friend, collaborator and labelmate Andreas Gehm who passed away in summer 2016, just after his own I Love Acid release. Four analogue acid hardware tracks. Remix duty falls to fellow hardware aficionado Perseus Traxx.

Martin De Brig – Smoke And Mirrors [TC004]

Next up on Belfast based Titanic City we return to where it all began with a release from Martin De Brig. The first track, Agent Osman, is more rooted in Chicago than Detroit with a Jacken baseline and the highest of synth lines, The Chris Nez remix takes it a totally different direction with more of a Electro feel. On the flip, A dog called Cairo has an arpeggiated synth line that builds and builds layered with hats rides claps and snares another floor filler. On remix duties for this one are Snuff Crew.

VA – Lunes De Fiel Vol. 2 [BM003]

Bitter Moon has criss-crossed Europe to gather a trio of heavy House hitters for Lunes De Fiel Vol. 2. Creme Organization prodigy Innershades gets the show on the road with the synth slamming groove of “Moments of Euphoria”. New Beat memories bounce alongside rumbling rhythms in track guaranteed to ignite speakers. Next stop is Germany with Snuff Crew and “Your Hands”. The Jack experts fillet their trademark raw edges for a smooth and soulful piece of late night Chitown. Smoke curls around chords, claps are softened as samples turn in a twilight haze. The final destination, Italy, is bathed in the 303 sunshine of “#Acid”. The White Rabbit Recordings founder uses the building blocks of Chicago to produce a fluid floor filler. Cymbals, cow-bells, toms and snares are soaked in a devilish brew of Acid. Bohemian body jerk to a 4/4 beat to bring down the curtain on this latest instalment of Lunes De Fiel.

VA – Happy Jackin’ Birthday [STX010]

HAPPY JACKIN BIRTHDAY

Snuff Trax celebrates magic record release number 010: Happy Jackin Birthday! For this little anniversary we asked four great artists to rework chosen tracks from the labels back catalogue. Leading us off, Mr White (you know him from his collaboration with Larry Heard) made an edit of Snuff Crews *Are You House*. Followed by Humandrone from Tokyo remixing Perseus Traxx – *Dont Feel Alone*. On the flipside you hear a remix treatment for Raiders of the lost ARP – *Stealing My Love* made by our man Takeshi Kouzuki of Kobe/Japan. And last but not least DimDJ from Thessaloniki created his own version of *Galaxian Journey* by Elec Pt.1.

Livio Improta – Say What [FRL012]

Next release from Frole Records is from the neapolitan talent Livio Improta. Livio presents us two tracks: “Alba” with its deep melodies and “Say What” that stands out for the analogic sounds that remind the first Chicago House tracks. Also remixed by berliners Snuff Crew with their unmistakable touch.

VA – Praterei 006 [PRATEREI006]

Austrian label Praterei kick off 2013 with a various artists EP. Mysterious jack lovers Snuff Crew take the lead with an unsurprisingly old school flavored slice of house. Raw and unpolished, classic hi hats and sturdy kicks set the tone beneath colorful stabs and increasingly wild percussion. 7 Citizens ́s ‘Perse’ is darker and deeper, a nagging hook snakes about menacingly as a starry night sky of melodies reveals itself above. Esteemed Chi Town man Chicago Skyway’s track ‘Shy Girl’ is anything but, instead it’s a gauzy and derelict house track with scattered drum hits caked in dust and grime. Ethyl closes out a dark and delicious EP with a feels-like-you’re-floating, dubby house track.

Pal + – The Forest [EYE004]

The Forest is the debut release from Pal +. The two tracks on The Forest demonstrate Pal+ to already be in possession of a fully formed sound notable for its disregard for standing still. The Stottifield vacuum of grainy textures that permeate the opening moments of “The Forest” are soon engulfed by the orchestrated light of the track in full flight, while “Inside” is a constantly shifting mass of jacking drums and deranged key stabs. The mysterious German duo Snuff Crew are commissioned to remix the title track, and they turn in a suitably grubby rework with killer staccato drums, the end result being a vastly different vibe to the original cut.

Pastaboys – Tribute Remixes [REVOX010]

Pastaboys’ 2004 classic “Tribute” gets a welcome 2012 revamp from the hands of Snuff Crew, Tevo Howard and Leon In Love, with the original mix thrown in for good measure. Jacking Chicago tracks including remixes by Tevo Howard and the Snuff Crew.

Arttu – Soul Stream [4LUX1201]

Arttu comes with his first single for 4lux. “Attic House” is a filthy club banger with heavy bassline and cut up vocal bits. Gerd re-arranges the track and adds more drama to the strings coming in halfway throughout the track. “Soul Stream” is a deeper Detroit-ish nugget with nostalgic feel. Yet again Arttu’s trademark of slamming beats & bass combined with cut-up vocals snippets profide for an insane jackin’ track. Last but not least Snuff Crew comes with a heavy re-work on “Attic House”.
