Igniting their vinyl-only series of releases is this first of three collaborative productions – hence the title. What’s great here are the range of sounds and styles escaping the usual cliques while offering up an exciting cocktail of ideas. Opening is Leonel Castillo ‘Vibraphonistix’ which sprinkles playful jazzy notation across a suitably cool bassline and shuffling drums all sure to excite the dance floor. Next in line is Jorge Savoretti & Paco Wegmann’s ‘Din Cartier’ which has undulating synths played out across a succession of splashing rhythms, while Fosky’s contrasting ‘Benefits’ gets more rewarding with a thought-provoking array of deeper pads and atmospheres. Finally, Franco Cinelli’s unfussy ‘Mind Out’ sequences smouldering electronics alongside pounding beats to end part 1.

Vinyl Release: July 5

Autotune
She
Leena

Erlin’s Adel and Jan-Eric aka Autotune proceed without due acre and attention to pulzarise your senses into submission via their rousing My Wife Mix of the title track, She. Offsetting its funkier bassline are sizzling drums and repeating, bruising stabs but what perhaps sets this up to ensure your attention is grabbed is its ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ vocal. The Original version feels breezier in comparison with almost jazzy notation colouring the soundscape. The moodier, uncomplicated rhythms of Circles then bounce around in engaging fashion as the equally compelling Mind Judgement feat. Dirty Paul digs deep with dark voices amid throbbing grooves.
