DAWN STATE is back with a new release from legendary London based producer 100Hz.
100Hz (aka Lee Renacre) has been shifting self-released promos out of the boot of his car since '89 and was a key figure in the first wave of Tech House coming out of London in the late 90's. The groove and swing of a 100Hz production is unmistakable and his signature sound continues to push the boundaries of House and Techno.
A1 is Warp, a track originally released in '96 (although it still sound like its from the future) on the legendary Pacific Records and now difficult to find in a good condition (or good price!). This 2019 reinterpretation draws out the groove while staying true to the energy of the original. This is pure, fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled Techno made for giving your body and mind a hard reset.
The B side takes things slower and deeper with two new productions; CaliVon overlays infectious swinging hats over a dark and tense atmosphere, creating a melancholic experience primed for losing yourself on the dancefloor. The sense of disassociation continues with Tundra, a brooding, circling masterpiece of disorienting deepness, spinning chaos and unity round your mind in perfect harmony.

Killer Smile return with four fresh mutations of the "Catchy Schisms EP" by Skeleton Army (John Morrow), including a drum and bass mix of the Foul Play influenced "Touch" reworked by Dutch jungle Don Coco Bryce.
Coco's version of "Touch" builds on John's legendary work in the 90s drum and bass scene as a member of Foul Play. The gentle piano keys and soft vocal samples shine over a backdrop of tight amen chops and uplifting Reese bass fit for any early morning rave epiphany.
Etch delivers a heavyweight slice of breakbeat science with his take on "Catchy Schisms", mixing up the tempos, dismantling then reconstructing drums and adding plummeting deep bass in a dark sci-fi voyage.
Lowering the tempo Army Of Ghosts craft their own unique version of "Bedlam Jennie" with their twisted techno mix, using multiple layers of abstract samples, thuggish four-fours and swirling FX designed to disorientate and surprise.
The final track on the EP is a breakbeat driven mix of "Bedlam Jennie", revisited by Skeleton Army himself. Maintaining the themes of the original EP, this version is melodic yet firmly rooted in leftfield territory, a fresh excursion into an abstract vision of house music.

Presenting a fully legit, remastered and repackaged reissue of this extremely sought after, cult 12" from Melancholy Man featuring unreleased music. Brand new for 2019.
London's Warriors Dance label was a unique operation and a pioneering London label during the late 80's acid house phenomena. Home to an assortment of DJs, MCs and soundmen, they went on to make their own original and indelible mark on the rave scene from the infamous 'Addis Ababa' studio on Harrow Road on the North-West side of the city. A former reggae and soul studio that was instrumental to the output of influential artists like Soul II Soul and more, a steady diet of reggae, bass, hip-hop, house and techno kept their edgy, and diehard UK sound and style right at the cutting edge of the dance music underground across the globe with the top DJs and producers of the day celebrating the label. The studio, helmed by label owner Tony ‘Addis’, acted as an incubator for artists whose names would go down in the history books.
Melancholy Man was a name synonymous with the crew, a name with a lot of weight, considering it was one of many of Tony Addis himself's production nom de plume's employed when behind the boards. 'Precaution' is that WD rawness, driving break-beat warehouse business with a massive dose of euphoria, the way it should be done. Included here are the original mixes from the 1991 OG 12", but as an added bonus, there is an unreleased, taken from Tony Addis' DAT archive mix that has never seen the light of day. That's 4 different mixes of this stormer that will fit into versatile DJ sets, straight from the source!
The EP is presented again. No edits, no remixes, just the pure unadulterated WD vibe
