Expected late June.
Fresh out of winter, time for ploughing. Five o’clock Traffic and TowLie know each other well, and never hesitate to dive head first in a maelstrom of acidic grooves and metallic sounds. A good opportunity to dig in the fertile Swedish soils. From Malmö to Stockholm, stopping at the Valhalla, synthesizers and drum machines on the shoulder, this is the 7th release of the label CAF?

A long-term project originally conceived in a small village in the north-east of England. Now with a residence permit and happily based in Berlin, Horden Colliery Country Club presents its first offering- The Away from the Hammock District EP.
Following a string of well received releases on Not an Animal, ESP Institute, MeMeMe and Future Boogie, Ian Blevins’ label takes its name from his hometown of Horden, a former colliery village which shares the humour, warmth and occasional menace of the imprint’s debut EP.
Opener Hammock is a no holds barred, dance floor primer which revels in its own magnetic immersion. A propulsive, nocturnal banger, side A of HCCC001 has much to offer in nine and a half minutes, its depths as euphoric as its peaks. The B Side comes packing with a snappy remix from Edmondson, another Berlin based north-east England comrade, and owner of the sublime Lissoms label. Edmondson’s version is a deep, jazzy number which lulls you into a false sense of security, sounding not unlike something Floating Points may be involved in.
Closing with You Are Alien, Ian plays on a more restrained pop sensibility, deployed with a distinct deftness of touch. Brimming with intent, there’s still plenty going on here to drive it home.
Taken as a whole, Away from the Hammock District embodies the style of set Ian Blevins has become known for- perfectly balanced, controlled chaos with a massive bang. More to come.

Space•lab records launches its interstellar mission to bring wigglers and warpers from all corners of the galaxy with a V/A made in Birmingham. Adam Pits kicks things off with Real Taste Of Gravity, a rising, trancey journey with a wonderful proggy bassline and synths-a-twinkling. Desert Sound Colony & Dr. Baird combine for the warpy, acid-flecked bassy roller Space Bass Express before Breaka and Adam Pits join for a classy breaks track with bubbling EFX called The Show Must Go On, named after Nic reversed a van into a parked car after setting up the space•lab party where they all met. Inner Zone (Rupert Worthington, Alex Anderson and label head Nic Baird) round things off with their debut release Niaaru - a sunrise weeper for those who like breakbeats with their coco pops.
