Saturday’s Record Shopping

Kai Alce : M-7 – 12″ (a tasty, dirty Detroit house groove. Not essential, but nice)

Brothomstates : Rktic / Matala Bobo – 12″ (Arcola thingy which everyone is rightly spooing over)

Chef : Extraball (The Remixes) – 12″ (Kemit Sources and Freaks remixes – both sound hot)

DJ Genesis : Back In The Middle (The Remixes) – 12″ (has that Theo Parrish remix we all been waiting for – yay!)

Everyday People Feat. Loretta Heywood : I Can’t Sleep – 12″ (Spacek and Afronaught remixes – a gorgeous vocal)

Mark Force : Running In The Red – 12″ (not sure how I missed out on this earlier. I know I had it in my cart at one point… Quality broken techno)

Franz Ferdinand : Take Me Out – Morgan Geist Re-Version – 12″ (think: House of Jealous Lovers remix, but slower, better, and this time with the vocal. Coooool)

Inner Life : Moment Of My Life / I Like It Like That – 12″ (Salsoul reissue that Farley always caned in those WBMX mixes – one of my favorite Hotmix 5 classics)

Kerrier District : Kerrier District – 3xLP (Vibert gone disco)

K L : Smile / Life – 12″ (this one slipped by unnoticed the first time – ’99. Kenny Larkin on KMS reissue. Feel dumb for not having it sooner…)

Monolake : Cern / White II – 12″ (yummy)

Moodmusic Limited : Unreleased Vol.2 – 12″ (guess I’m gonna have to track down that Heinrik Schwarz as well, innit)

New Sector Movements : Sho You Right / Something – 12″ (new NSM promo on Virgin. Slow-mo broken soul – may as well call it r&b. Sounds tasty though)

Nu Era : Some Think Electronic – 2×10″ (yet more broken techno, from the 4 Hero massive)

Osunlade & Nadirah Shakoor : Pride / Touched My Soul – 12″ (repress. Dig both tracks)

Recloose : Us Vs Us – 12″ (was hesitant first time I saw it, eventually it was the Kid Sublime remix that sold me. Real slow. Real good)

Franck Roger : Mascarade – 12″ (deep house and broken beats a la Versatile. Delivers exactly the quality you’d expect)

Arthur Russell : The World Of Arthur Russell – 3xLP (Very happy to have Dinosaur L and a few others off of this, and hoping to learn about a ton of his other stuff. Soul Jazz hooks my ass up!)

Sequel : Neptune, Moon & Mars / Upsolid – 12″ (more very tech-y broken beats on Sonar Kollectiv)

Dani Siciliano : Likes… – 2xLP (when I first heard the ‘Come as you are’ cover on Gilles Petersen ages ago, it really left me cold, but on hearing a few more clips I’m warming to it a bit. All seems to be pretty downtempo. Will give fuller report in due time)

Siriusmo : Sirius EP – 12″ (more Sonar Kollectiv broken beat madness)

Skyy : First Time Around – Larry Levan Mix / Call Me – 12″ (more tasty Salsoul reissue business)

$tinkworx : Whut / Yinmao / Mischa – 12″ (Hopefully have the latest Delsin one on the way as well)

Swag : Them Drums – 12″ (why did I pass on this the first time? Both mixes seem very tasty)

Martina Topley-Bird : I Still Feel It (Freaks / Jori Hulkkonen Remixes) – 12″ (the Hulkkonen mix is a perfect middle-ground between his house and techno stuffs. Sounds very deep)

Zoltar : Story Of An Age / Wah Wah – 12″ (yet another Domu project, this time also for Sonar Kollektiv. Passed on a few of his other more recent things after his deluge of genius, but this one seems to be pretty on it)
