On guest mix duties this time around we have Kompleks. We’ve been fans of the Serbian native’s work for a while, having discovered his music via his ‘Yu-Edits’ series, which shines a light on great Yugoslavian tracks whilst simultaneously repackaging them into dancefloor shredders.
With a great catalogue of edits to his name, some notable heat to check out are his remixes/edits of: The Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – Keep Believing (Can You Feel It), Kim Wilde – Everything We Know and his ‘Edit 04’.
As much as the whole emphasis on harder edged breaks and techno in the UK at the moment is really enjoyable, it’s always refreshing to leap into some warmer varieties of left-field and obscure dance music. This mix is exemplary of those warmer, nearly (dare I say it) balearic, tones.
New from ELLLL. Eerie melodies and bugged out drums abound on this EP. The ‘Polarbergs’ title fits the bill pretty well, combined with being released on Dublin’s Glacial Industries, this one feels like it’s straight ouf a Lynchian winter scene.
Running on the spot dance from Blu Terra here. A bit of a wot do u call it one, in the sense that there are sections you could corral in with trance, acid sections and a drum pattern throughout which is consistent with the breaks kicking about at the minute.
It doesn’t really matter what it’s called, it bangs irrespective. This one is sure to put a dancefloor through the blender. Stay woke on Cead, two releases down and shelling it.
High energy heat from Regularfantasy. This is a record that has all the bells and whistles get both the ‘discerning’ dancers and the big room heads on side. The main melodic theme is a sure fire party starter and those accompanying pads, a Regularfantasy trademark, give the tune a lovely depth. Mega stuff.
Another great release for Pear to have under the belt, a cracking label doing serious bits out of Dublin.
