Jitterbug – Workers EP [UZURI020]

Uzuri 020 comes from Jitterbug. Apparently the title is a nod in support of the global proletariat, but it could equally refer to the floor-worthy nature of the tracks themselves. Truly an EP; you get six tracks of out and out bangers – from straight drum tracks to smoother Summer jams and disco-licked house – each track bringing a fresh flavour.

Jitterbug – Arcane Theory Ep [UZURI018]

For Uzuri 018 Jitterbug  brings the Arcane Theory EP. The track sequencing on this record is pretty aggressive – front-loaded with the confrontational Rise of the Machines; a track that really lives up to its title, sounding like the production line at Cyberdyne Systems… all stomp and evil synths, like a bad mood E-Dancer. Fallout couldn’t be further from that – relaxed and making no attempt at all to get in your face. Just a nice, deep groove and a lovely, phased beat. The whole of the flip is devoted to Nomads, a chiming, acidic wander; nearly eleven minutes in length. The kick’s never at the fore on this one – most of the action occurs at the mid and high frequencies – a resonant 303, lots of hi hats and, later, synths which expand on the Eastern-flavour of the track title.

Chicago Skyway – Londinium EP [UZURI017]

The Londinium EP is the latest release on Uzuri Recordings and welcomes Chicago Skyway back to the fold. Musically, he keeps it closer to his Windy City heart. Hakim Murphy remixes the track and his rework retains the drawn-out essence of the original but brings a whole new hips-and-shoulders groove to the track. On the flip, Traffic plays out a very simple analogue groove over a clapping 808 percussive pattern. A slow, static-filled monster of a track – not abrasive for the sake of it – instead switching between muffled warmth and the hiss of synths working overtime.

Lerosa – Amanatto LP [UZURI016]

LEROSA - Amanatto

Debut album for both the artist as the Uzuri label! “Amanatto” remains true to what Lerosa’s best known for – deftly-produced house music that conveys maximum emotion whilst exercising classy restraint. Some new ground is covered, too – most notably on the vocal tracks, produced in collaboration with The Oliverwho Factory. Musically, there are hints of melancholy, but it’s by no means a brooding album. Amanatto contains some of the lushest compositions Lerosa has produced to date – his beloved clean tones sounding warm, accentuated by the aforementioned vocals.

Move D – Hydrophonics EP [UZURI014]

What needs to be said about Move D? Overused, though the veteran tag is, David Moufang has been producing excellent music for many, many years. Yet, the last few have seen him receive particular acclaim, especially for his more house-flavoured work – buoyed by his increased reputation as a DJ.

Lerosa – Facade EP [UZURI013]

LEROSA - Facade EP

Chicago Skyway – Wolfgang Hair Ep [Uzuri010]

CHICAGO SKYWAY - Wolfgang Hair EP (Front Cover)

His new EP for Uzuri will only enhance his reputation even further – four tracks for brains in basements that thump and glide and scream of a man with a big future ahead of him. Crisp drums and synths dissolve into super strong acid on A1 cut “CP1”. On A2 Confusion comes over like something Morgan Geist didn’t make in 1995 but should have done. B1 track “Acid” is the heaviest cut of the four. A massive twenty-first century Armando monument that will ruin any discerning dance floor it encounters. B2 track Glasswerks sounds as clear and clean as its name suggests, with chimes and a thoroughbred old school Chicago beat and bass.
