ALBUM OF THE MONTH' 9/10 - Mixmag

Ride with us takes the listener on a musical journey through the dark fringes of London city. The deep subs and sonic layers create a sinister representation of city life. Mixmag describes first release Harca as a creeper, a sound description of the escalating and intensifying sound that Last Japan builds within these tracks.

A gentle yet eerie melody in Worlds Apart is interrupted by successive, deep jabs of bass and for those who spent their childhood on the N64, the samples in Goldeneye will bring back some militant flashbacks. These works from innovator, Last Japan, demonstrate his clear direction over the last year, showcasing quality production and personal experimentation alongside collaborations from Mr Mitch, Prince Rapid and regular feature, Trim.

Ride with us should be listened to on a deep sub, standing in the dark corner of a London club, equally on headphones riding the last underground or driving through the city, be it London, New York or Tokyo, late at night...these tracks will make you have to look back over your shoulder. With a passion for collecting music, Last Japan is releasing a limited number of self-produced tapes including his own artwork and photography, bringing back the collectable item and highlighting his expression through all art forms.

Ride With Us has already gained the support from Mumdance, Julie Adenuga, Compa, Benji B, B. Traits, Blue Daisy and many more.

"This is a dream album by Tambov's ethereal hero Summer Of Haze.
This is Jessica. Jessica is always waiting for you on the beach. With a bong. With a perfect smile. As smooth as you can imagine.
This is weedwave. It's all about Yo and Om together. It's like laughing sadly at the void. It's like just being here without illusive perfection. it's raw, emotional and hopeful. As life is at it's lows, the basics.
This is something just to feel and move ruining the stereotypes and passing all the mind tricks by.
This is the core of Summer Of Haze, the spirit. Yes, it's simple, joyful and outgiving. It's honest."

Comes with bonus items - an unheard disco-driven slow rave tune and two "Jessica" hi-res themes.

This compilation is inspired by our collaboration with one of the most culturally relevant and timeless brands, Stussy.
We've sifted through dozens of tracks to curate the finest selection of progressive music from around the globe to bring visibility to the future sound. Because there is so much talent out there, it was challenging to pull this compilation together to showcase a progression and cohesive flow but we finally feel we've arrived as something very special.
You will see familiar official Soulection artists on this compilation as well some new talent from forward-thinking and ambitious producers, emcees and vocalists that we're excited about and feel have a bright future.
Our partnership with the iconic brand includes a 'Soulection Tribe' limited t-shirt designed by Stussy as well as a physical in-store event and after party at our Sound Of Tomorrow Los Angeles monthly at The Echoplex.
Much love to Neek and the whole Stussy team for making this collaboration a reality.

[UNDRTW 002D] Phaeleh ‎– Somnus

Phaeleh ‎– Somnus
Label: Undertow ‎– UNDRTW002D
Format: 11 × File, FLAC, Album
Country: UK
Released: 31 Jul 2014
Genre: Electronic
Style: Ambient

9     Nine     1:15
10     Ten     4:36
11     Eleven     7:14

Phaeleh has always been highly regarded for his emotionally resonant atmospheres. Here he delivers a highly overdue beatless longplayer honed from found sound from the last 10 years, made on portable minidisc recorders, cameras, phones and anything else with a mic. Influences from Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Global Communication seep through the cracks on his most uncompromising work to date. Here Phaeleh wears the Somnus genome on his sleeve ' For example Eleven is definitely informed by the work of Pierre Schaeffer, Jonty Harrison and Simon Atkinson I hope you can hear that'. The album also leans on the utilitarian use of his music, on how his fanbase use his music to soundtrack specific aspects of their lives from Child birth (we have the video evidence) to life celebrations:
"After the amazing feedback to the iD slumber sessions mix, and so many years of people saying they'd revise to it, sleep to it, get therapy to it, I thought it might be a nice idea to put together a collection of some of these tracks, which up to this point, were just for personal consumption."
Somnus is a mediative work for you to use to find a gap in pace to todays info cascade.

Format: Vinyl, 12", EP, 33 ⅓ RPM
Country: Germany
Released: Nov 2012
Genre: Electronic
Style: Deep House
Distributed By – Clone Distribution
Mastered At – Scape Mastering
Artwork – Olaf Stoy
Mastered By – Stefan Betke


A1     Redensart    
A2     Hauswart    
B1     Start    
B2     Gegenwart    

After all efforts were put into Jacob Korn’s debut album during summer 2012 Uncanny Valley strikes back with namesake Jacob Stoy and his very first solo EP after his “S51” for the UV010-compilation.
Everything starts with “Redensart”, a sunny piece of music with a sneaky bassline and easy synth pads that come across like a warm rain shower: It’s House in the end but feels like so much more. “Hauswart” is an impressive example of how one can create a whole atmosphere of sound within two minutes. It’s short but feels so comfortable that you really like it to go on and on forever.
“Start” is maybe the most conventional Deep House track on the EP and seduces with catchy synth chords and thrilling drums. Finally “Gegenwart” brings things to a jazzy end with tipsy synths and tripping percussions.
The artwork comes from none other than Jacob’s father Olaf Stoy, who is a painter, lyricist and porcelain designer still working in Jacob’s hometown Rabenau near Dresden.

[BC 30] Textural Being ‎– The Sixth Gap

Textural Being ‎– The Sixth Gap
Label: Recycled Plastics ‎– BC30
Series: Bedroom Compost – BC30
Format: CD, 10 × File, MP3, 320 kbps
Country: US
Released: 07 Aug 2014
Genre: Electronic
Style: Dub Techno, Ambient, Techno

Textural Being is a name that many of you should know by now, if you've been keeping up with who's who in the current dub techno scene. Having released several fantastic works on labels such as Cold Tear, Deep In Dub, Energostatic, ZeECc, Auditory Cortex and Cold Fiction, among others, Mr. Being is now moving on from the moniker, transitioning over to a new project simply called aspect. Thus, The Sixth Gap is (in our humble opinion) not only one of his best excursions to date, but also one hell of an album to close the book on the Textural Being name.
The music is deep, moody and evocative of its namesake with swirling soft textures in spades. Groovy bass drums anchor the rhythm in a fog of floaty chords, their constant thumping a ghost of some long-forgotten deep house memory. What Textural Being evokes so well here is an air of familiarity while simultaneously sounding fresh and interesting. In a genre that is no doubt overflowing with homogeneity and monochrome, The Sixth Gap offers a vibrant atmosphere of just what good dub techno could and should be. Backed by a stellar remix cast of Axs, Ohrwert, Yan Olsen and Coppice Halifax, and limited to just 50 CD-Rs!

Genre: Electronic, Hip Hop, Funk / Soul
Style: House, Funk, Bass Music
Executive Produced: Joe Kay
Artwork: Andre Power!
Words: Jacqueline Mari

After a bit of a hiatus due to travels spreading the sound of tomorrow globally, we are back with the 10th installation of our White Label Series with a feel good project from our boy J-Louis.

This installment of our White Label Series comes from 21 year old LA-based producer and drummer, J Louis. You may remember Mr. Louis as the resourceful young man who experimented with beatmaking on his iPhone in the past. This time, he's been working with Ableton and other music creation programs to develop his signature sound further.

This White Label series sees J-Louis moving a into some more uptempo and housey vibes while still keeping his signature bass heavy sound intact.
SWL010 has J-Louis remixing rising vocalist @rachelfoxx in the "Before You" jam, sampling Raphael Saadiq & Teedra Moses Ft. Corey Tinay's "I Want You Back" in "Can't You See" and collaborating with dope producer, @orijanus on "Hot N Ready".

[YARN 010] Terrorrythmus ‎– Adaption Disorder Remixes Pt. 2

Terrorrythmus ‎– Adaption Disorder Remixes Pt. 2
Label: Yarn Audio ‎– YARN010
Format: 4 × File, Wav
Country: Germany
Released: 04 Aug 2014
Genre: Electronic
Style: House, Techno

Terrorrhythmus’ «Adapion Discorder» seems to be Yarn’s most smashing EP to date, judging by the almost endless amount of remixes. After the release of the uptempo remix-pack back in June, Yarn now presents «Adaption Disorder Remixes Pt. 2». The second remix-EP keeps up with the high energy, concentrating on a dancefloor-friendly tempo-range.
From Germany’s rough bank capital Frankfurt comes machine-musician Chris Geschwindner. The affiliate of the young label polen.rec woves «40h»’s pads and samples together with a shuffled house groove. His remix develops over eight minutes, leaving smiles everywhere with its airy and sunny atmosphere.
A totally different interpretation of «40h» comes from Llyphon. Terrorrhythmus’ mate from Bremen already released on his imprint Betonblume and DubKraftRecords. With stumbling bassdrums, flirring hi-hats and washed-out samples he transforms Terrorryhthmus’ trap track into a lush and varied piece of contemporary electronic music.
Also from Bremen comes producer and DJ in demand Tobs who just dropped his first vinyl on Drowned Records. His «Leaving Home»-version of «Post Smack» is full of warm pads and synths, unfolding sentimental feelings over a pretty straight house beat.
Uprising Belgian producer Take Away The Noise seems to have hardcore in his blood. His seven minute long adaption of «Post Smack» utilizes the original’s vocals in a stumping techno garment. Breaks and shuffled bassdrums penetrate the rough track which is designed to destroy dancefloors.
