Deep space techno electro on TRUST celebrating the label's year XX. /DL/MS/ is the viennese duo behind recent Frustrated Funk outing, 'Omakuda', last year's TRUST29, 'Rogue Intent', as well as one of the most-played electro tracks of 2017 - their remix of Second Storey's 'Attack Of The Modlings'. 'Exit Ghosts' takes the /DL/MS/ sound far into haunted new orbits, trading some of its earthy rumble for more ethereal emanations. stark and sombre bass signals return, but find themselves enveloped in delicately threaded string anomalies, copious amounts of melodic ectoplasm, and spirit-like liquid funk dilutions. Vinyl 12" contains three locked grooves and ships in new TRUST XX color sleeves.

London based OdD are a natural fit for Infuse with their rolling hypnotic grooves featuring in the sets of the Fuse crew for the past few years.
Their Cold Fusion EP kicks off with Get Away, the EP's vinyl only track; a deep edged shuffler, custom fit for those hazier dance-floor moments.
Roll The Beats has a distinctly tripped out sensibility whilst 'Making Moves' ups the energy with a sprightly house-edged bounce.

Club life would never be the same again now that he had left the building. He was gone and so too would this place be very soon. The world mourned the last dancer, out the door he had walked never to return to a floor in which he had spent many a night lost under the glowing lights and disco balls. His movement had been legendary, the talk of the town. Now all that was left was an eerie shadow and an empty space where he had used to stand. This night was for him, they would move in honour. The night had only just begun. Let's ride.

The sixth release on Deep'a & Biri's Black Crow label welcomes another new name into the fold: Nico Campanella has been quietly building a stellar reputations for himself over the past few years, working under a variety of aliases to explore a sound that much like Deep'a & Biri draws deeply from techno's Detroit heritage as well as the propulsive dub techno of Basic Channel. With releases for several high quality under-the-radar European techno labels, including Construct Re-form, CLFT, Monnom Black and his own label Subosc, Campanelli's Kaelan and 2030 projects in particular have won him some ardent admirers & plenty of tips as a talent to keep an eye on.
It's as 2030 that he joins Black Crow, for the Timeworm EP, which is completed by remixes from FXHE's Luke Hess and the label's Tel Aviv-based founders. The EP's original track are a pair of lushly-produced classic Detroit-influenced excursions, redolent of the cascading ambient textures and string melodies found within the work of the city's first wave pioneers. A1 cut 'In aeternum' could easily be mistaken for a lost early 90s classic in the best possible sense, while the title track also draws on a similarly timeless quality.
With the original track ensuring the EP package will win other home listeners, it's the remixers who shape them for the dancefloor. Luke Hess's 'In aeturnum' remix is powerful dancefloor workout that retains a softer edge, recalling the producer's recent collaboration with OB Ignitt. On the B side, Deep'a & Biri offer two of their own interpretations of the title track, pulling the track across the dub techno galaxy with their trademark dexterity.
Completing a truly exceptional package is beautiful hand drawn artwork by Israeli artist Avraham Guy Barchil.

Rotterdam based 25 Places are back on Dirt Crew with a bang! since their Love More release in 2015 the boys have been hard at work and have just released an EP for Chez Damier on his Prescription Records sub label Balance.
The bounce begins with Party In The Hills hosting a huge kick, loopy Rhodes, squelching bass, Ragga flavoured vocal and squeaky lead, it's straight up good times right from the get go. An infectious groove on this one! "Closing Title Song" heads into deep soaring territory, it's forward house beat and pulsing synth lead intertwine with loose tropical percussion and a rhapsodic horn hook.
On the flip we have Laurence Guy who does not really need an introduction anymore, the man has been all over the place since this year's releases on Cin Cin, Outplay and the imminent Church where he dropped two big EP's Bamboo and Kojak. Here he takes on the soulful deep Chicago House of 25 Places and turns it into a 90's
breakbeat acid galore of ecstasy tingled UK House.
Places wrap up the rave session with Backyard Stories,
a raw and bouncing, bass face inducing jam.
Uplifting and dirty in one stroke, its thumping kick and feverous
melodies make it impossible not to move.
