MFS: Observatory ‘YY EP’


Most of this EP isn’t really  something for me TBH, well produced rolling techno which will probably sound great in a club but isn’t my bag, but the final cut ‘Y3’ I’m definitely down with. It’s got a decent solid groove on it with a kick that gets a right stomp going on. It’s full of tinkling effects, a fairly illegible vocal and is proper heads down tackle for those serious moments in the disco. Check it for yourself above.

The EP is out now on Butane’s Alphahouse imprint (he also contributes a remix). Head here for more info.

New reviews on DMC

Here’s a round up of some of the reviews I’ve done on DMC in the past few weeks

Maurice Aymard & Sasse Backwards EP

Dave Seaman – ‘Justified Replacement of Lulu’ – (Remixes)

A Tribute to Klang Club (Unclear records)

The above is a quick snippet of an EP released on Unclear Records on the 22nd October as a tribute to Klang nightclub, a Tuscan rave spot that purports to have a bit of a history during the five years it was open from 2008-13. The tracks are all form people who’ve played their before, with Baby Ford offering a breathy sparse groove in ‘Satellite Stroll (Edge Of The Night Mix)’ and a typically mechanical clunker from Roman Flugel called ‘Candy Crack’.

For me though the jack on Okain’s ‘Living proof’ is absolute gold, gorgeous swinging house around the 120bpm mark with classic claps and percussion, and then some beautifully chimy stabs and even a little bit of sax. Proper taps aff tackle for Croatia and beefa, and the kind of record that you hear mid afternoon in Panoramabar on a Sunday. Boss, in other words.
