Records of the week - September 3rd

After a paucity of good records last week, it seems we’ve turned the corner somewhat. Stealing this week’s accolade is the duo of DJ Overdose and Mr Pauli otherwise known as Novamen and their latest release on Viewlexx., which is a rather sombre electro track full of melancholy. It was released initially on vinyl in July, but you can now purchase it digitally through What People Play as well. Mr Pauli’s also got an excellent new single out on Clone called “Jap Fab” that features a live drum sound that both him and Alden Tyrell seem to be favouring these days, plus vocals by Fred Ventura. Minimal Rome is a label that continues to produce off-kiler disco and electro, and the new one by Andreas Herz is probably worth a listen first but I really like it. He may be at the centre of the hipster scene in NYC but Eamon Harkin’s new release on Wurst Edits is pretty catchy, sampling John Carpenter on one side, and producing a quite punishing house number on the flip. 3 rareties have also been reissued on Betty Botox, but they’re remasters of vinyl rather the original recordings, but still the Carlos Peron and Pankow tracks are good. Keeping on the more Detroit side of electro tip is a new release on DBass by Cybonix, full of Direct Beat-esque material. 

On the Techno front the newest on Fachwerk by Tresor resident Mike Dehnert is a fizzing mix of Detroit and Berlin and definitely worth picking up, whilst Petar Dundov continues to churn out quality material with his latest on Music Man given a nice remix by Echospace. Marco Passarani contributes an excellent remix to Noirdegout’s “A Frog on the Beach” and keeping on the Nature front, they return to form with a thumping synth-drive selection by new artist Roberto Auser, whilst Robert Hood’s Monobox project has the limited 12” remixes it released reissued in a double 12” pack. The Villalobos remix in particular is unusual. Glasgow continues its steady stream of releases with a welcome return by Jason Brunton on Iridite, whose releases are always on form.

Frank Timm aka Soundstream hits us with another superb chunky single that has instantly gone in my (virtual) record bag. Watch out for the album soon. Elsewhere on the house front there are some nice bits from Alton Miller on Yore, a reissue of Trus’me’s first recordings, the new single from Morgan Geist which has 2 remixes from Carl Craig which you may like, but sadly failed to elicit any real response from me, and last but not least the new one on Dial from John Roberts which features some superb piano.
