Dåser – A.I EP Inc – Extended Play

Belfast’s finest export, Extended Play plays havoc with the senses as any expected notions of Electro fly out the window. While Dublin’s Daser effortlessly blends a wild combination of pulsating, futuristic beats together with fizzy, energetic Acid lines. You can hear that knowing nod to the early 80’s in there but you can also most definitely feel 2018 reaching throughout. Then Sub Club resident Domenic Cappello delivers the kind of excellent remix which really deserves that description. He turns it all upside down releasing a darker inscription across the arrangement, reworking the synthesized arpeggios into a blaze of contrasting moods and signs too. Remaining tracks, Convent Inferno works an element of Detroit into the equation and the more playful, tempting atmospheres of Low Serotonin complete this most notable release.

Release: October 26

Scoper & Bubba – Touch Me – Extended Play

In one way this isn’t anything to do with Disco, Boogie or whichever retrograde label you would like to apply at the time. It feels much more about the here and now despite the fact that you know exactly where its essence is ripped from. Perhaps best to put it this way, the clue is contained in the title. But projecting beyond that is revealed a wonderful, emotionally resonating number which sequences soulfully assuring keys while offsetting them by tastefully crunchy drums and sizzling, punctuating rim shots on the title track. Jordan then gets down to the eighties with bouncing basslines fuelling electro beats on his no questions need to be asked ‘let’s party’ remix. Don’t You Know, is the second track contrasting nicely with the breezier melodies of Touch Me hitting harder, that bit more Acid in attitude. However, for me it’s T-Bone’s remix which packs a sure-fire intensity and when the hi-hats make their presence felt it all makes perfect sense. That plus the caustic ripple of stereo expanding synthesizers and the spirit of Detroit all go to this more than notable proudly celebrating the labels 65th release!
