After kicking things off in beautiful style with De Gama's Yebo/Mantekilla, Samosa Records return with another belter of an EP with Les Inferno's 'Everything I Do.' Les Inferno, known to his associates as The Professor due to his extraordinary vinyl collection of over seventy-thousand records, is one of the three producers behind Samosa Records, alongside De Gama and Pierandrea.
This week we're taking a look at the opening party of Printworks' Issue 002. Having never been to the venue I was unsure what to expect, but given the enormous hype I was glad to see it lived up to all expectations.
This week we’re taking a look at Several Definitions new album, Reborn after the Road. The Swiss artist has already showcased his talent with releases on Knee Deep in Sound and Selador. Now returning with his first feature length album, the expectations are certainly high for this up and comer who sees the the LP released on Oliver Koletzki’s Stil Vor Talent.
P.Leone launches his new Brooklyn-based imprint E-MISSIONS in style with some hard hitting techno, designated for the dance floor. The EP will see both electronic and vinyl release at the start of next month.
Don't Be Afraid head honcho Semtek steps up for his first release on the label since 2011’s Pizza 12″, though the artist has since released the Bad Teeth 12″ on London’s Niche N Bump label in 2015.The four track release is a fine return to production for Bristol-based Semtek.
A top quality, highly accomplished release from Overmono (aka Tessela and Truss) with a diverse set of songs beautifully traversing the lines between ambience and hard hitting industrial techno. The first Arla Overmono release felt somewhat underwhelming whereas Arla II proverbially smashes it out of the park on all fronts.
Eric Dulan's (aka DJ Bone) first album released under his new alias "Differ-Ent" certainly packs a punch.The album certainly lives up to its name in being pretty far removed from Dulan's trademark sound. Continuing on from other Differ-Ent releases, such as M.O.M back in 2015, many of the tracks have a distinctly more aggressive tone than the classic Detroit sound associated with DJ Bone.
Dial Records co-founder David Lieske (aka Carsten Jost) returns for his first album since 2001's "You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows." With a plethora of releases from heavy hitters such as Pantha Du Prince, Roman Flügel and Efdemin, we've come to expect a lot form the Hamburg-based label.
