Margaret Dygas – Saasafras

Playful, spacious, and freaky minimal House from Dygas; which featured on last years ‘Superlongevity 6’ compilation on Perlon. As ever with Dygas and Perlon, a class act.


Cassy – Somelightuntothenight

Dreamy, sultry Deep House from the UK’s Cassy; circa 2007.

Martyn – U1-U8

Some nice Housey doings from his 2015 EP “Falling For You”.


Bambooman – M1

From March’s ‘Shudder’ EP, ‘M1’ delivers some lovely straight(ish) ahead underground House moves from a man who also likes to delves into abstractions from time to time (he’ll go anywhere from abstract Hip-Hop/downbeat, through Ambient Electronica, to to field recordings). That man is Leeds based Kirk Barley. Keep an eye on this guy.


Octo Octa – Fleeting Moments Of Freedom (Wooo)

Cracking underground House from Brooklyn-based Maya Bouldry-Morrison, and is from their 2017 album ‘Where Are We Going?’.


Innerspace Halflife – Body Flicker

Deep and lovely Chicago House. You know the kind, the kind that is as futuristic and spaced out as Detroit Techno. Yeah, that kind; from this duo’s 2015 EP ‘Village Hidden In The Sound’


K. Alexi Shelby – All For Lee-Sah

Absolutely class Chicago Acid House here; with a track some may recognise from Hawtin’s ‘DE9 Transmissions’. A real slice of sexy, minimal House music from 1989.


Heartthrob – The Bunker Podcast 143

Podcast of a recent live jam with mostly new and unreleased material from Jesse Siminski a.k.a Heartthrob. Does this mean there’s a long overdue album from him? Who know’s (even some EP’s would be nice), but his style and panache is still on display, and demonstrates why he was always heads above the crown in the minimal scene. The final track of this mix is really fantastic, and has all of the hallmarks of a 4am track. Enjoy!


A Guy Called Gerald – Live @ His Studio, 11th of February 2017

Just a guy (called Gerald) chilling at his studio and doin’ a little jam; for 5 hours. This man is still ahead of the game as far as we’re concerned, and no matter what you think of his seeming arrogance at times, the guy is a class act that delivers stunning Techno in all of its flavours and shades. Gerald manages to hit spots where the music is tough, trippy, sexy, and, importantly, retains serious groovage. This is Techno. He did this on the 11th of February, 2017. If you haven’t had a chance to see him do this live, then take it when it does come.


Actress – X22RME

Darren Cunningham a.k.a Actress is back and ready for a new album. X22RME is the first taster from the forthcoming ‘AZD’; due to be released on Ninja Tune in April. This is more streamlined than some of the work he’s known for; but anyone familiar with his back catalogue will know he is capable of throwing out some Techno grooves from time to time. This track certainly bodes well for the upcoming album, and it’s always a pleasure to listen to someone as adept at making Electronic music as Cunningham obviously is. Also, nice to see Crystal Palace represented in the new video.
