Kind of creepy and slow remix of Trans Afro Express (not to be confused with a similarly named Kraftwerk track) – showing his genius once more but at a slower BPM than you might expect.
Another K-HAND track for the blog, this is an older track from 1999 yet still has a modern swing to it, despite the bass being a little raw.
The death of Kelli Hand recently, led me to spend some time going through her back catalogue (well, I’m still going through it – it is very extensive), and I was like “this is K-HAND”? A tune I’ve known and loved for some time without knowing who it was, this is pumping yet still on the deep flavour.
I’m not sure if this might actually be awful, but it has Spanish pop-disco vibes from 1977 from your finest family holiday DJ in some Spanish resort. Some English vocals but mostly Spanish singing with a Latin feel. Just hold hands with the drunk, fat bloke and his bald wife, and swing your arms in the air and sing. Released on Salsoul Records so it must be kind of credible?
Kind of chuggy with a simple yet delightful repetitive beat, almost a drug-like hypnotic quality from absolute starts, Losoul.
Cinthie again proving that she is becoming the master of joyful house sounds reminiscent of the mid-2000’s – I hesitate to say it but almost along the lines of Eric Prydz and Axwell before they went shit (they did produce some pretty decent records early on) – this level of house music joy. Yet with feet firmly in the underground and modern sounding production.
Heard this played pitched down in a set a while back, and it makes so much more sense that way – it becomes really quite an emotive peak minimal track, and just totally glorious like the end of day peak sunshine saying it loves you. And it’s from 1997 too. Wow.
It’s minimal, which is really no surprise for this blog, this is a Serbian producer that I’ve never previously heard of, with a sweet rolling bassline, the usual clicks and a background vocal which if I knew my pop music I right recognise – it’s definitely an edit of something!
A real beautiful minimal adventure, quite a short track, a little quirky and very Perlon.
Slow, chuggy underground house music with some deep and dark vocals. This just hits – and you’ll understand.
Offbeat techno before offbeat techno was ever a thing, though it probably still isn’t a thing. Broken beat with urgent synths – A Made Up Sound actually has tons of classic and underappreciated tracks.
Creepy and heavy on the hi-hats, this is an atmospheric stripped-back minimal track for Monday mornings.
