1987... for those lucky enough visiting a decent import shop in that year could have seen a US import record with pink label showing a darts board with small text next to the picture saying "Target records" and "Joe R. Lewis". Pretty sure nobody at that time would be alarmed by this... reading further it said... 1. Love Of My Own... Written and produced by Joe R. Lewis... in even smaller text the label info continued; mixed by Larry Heard..! And even that, at that time that would not have rung a bell, except for maybe a couple of dj's who only just in the last couple months picked up copy of a Mr. Fingers record and memorised the writer credits. We're talking the very early days of House music, the pre-internet era where new music and info didn't spread all over the globe within a couple of seconds... Now more then 30 years later this is a holy grail for worldwide record collectors and house aficionados, and still not all info is clear. But like all good stories there is a cloud of mystery covering up the details! On the flip side there is one of the best tracks ever produced by Joe Lewis.., Life Immoreal... a track so elegant and beautiful that it hurts!!! Two of the best tracks Chicago House music has to offer in remastered versions taken from the original master tapes on this latest outing of Clone Classic Cuts!
a1. Love of My Own (Instrumental)
b1. Dub My Own (Remix)
b2. Life Immoreal

The Accidental Jnr label has just passed it’s second birthday mark… so at 2 years and 15 releases in it only seems appropriate for the next 12” release to come from the artist that kicked the label off and has made it his home for the past 2 years… Bambooman, with a remix from label boss Matthew Herbert himself on the b-side. The track can really speak for itself as this one is something special for the dancefloor, the only difficulty is choosing which version to play...

Contactless debuts on UTTU with 4 electro cuts for the head, the whip and the club. Taking inspiration from boombass, electro-electronix, the lead track Static takes you on an electrosoul journey to the beyond, updating the motor city template with fresh styles.

Robot Wreckin Crew introduces the most bad-assed cybernetic b-boy crew around, with added flavour ready for the sub-woofer in your trunk, whilst e.p. closer Downpour twists the program even further to include drum and bass influenced melodic elements over steady electro beats.
4 cuts guaranteed to inject emotion into our increasingly automated society!

Housemeister joins Herbert’s ever burgeoning Accidental Jnr roster with an EP of definitive leftfield techno clout. Lead track Late At Night pulsates with a piercing vocal hook whilst a remix of the track from Matthew Herbert offers a funkier and altogether darker edge. Other offerings on the release are the acid inflected Der kleine König Dezember and closing the show is the simple but affecting Funk That which really speaks for itself. Housemeister has never looked to conform to the genre rule book and this latest release is no different with serious execution and cheeky playfulness in equal measure.
a1. Late at Night
a2. Der kleine König
b1. Late at Night (Matthew Herbert Should Have Played That Dub)
b2. Funk That
Released 12th October
Part 5 of 5 to be released over the coming couple of months. Originally released on the Phono label in 1995/96 the ‘Parts’ series from Matthew Herbert are a much loved collection of house tracks that sound just as original and bold today as they did when they were first released. This series of 12”s were part of an early wave of exploratory dance music that paved the way for the deep house that still works its magic on dance-floors in 2018 some 25 years later. The mix of Herbert’s playfulness alongside expertly grooving production and unusual sounds makes this unique collection of work. The odd few tracks aside this is the first time that these releases have ever been repressed. All newly remastered for this reissue series, the releases include stone cold club classics such as ‘Deeper’, ‘Take Me Back’, ‘Resident’, ‘People That Make the Music’ and ‘See You on Monday’.

In the wake of a spread of releases Urulu arrives, the latest convert to the Kalahari Oyster Cult. “Transworld” is the American artist’s first gift to the diety. The track physically jitters into life as broken beats and classic samples give rise to an elusive melody of spaced out synthlines and expansive arcs. Shapes are a central theme of the EP, like the exotic curves, playful percussion and full bodied bass of “Precinct 9.” Urulu toys with assumed structures, nowhere is this more evident than in the bizarre and brilliant medley of bleeps, honks, squeaks and bold beats that make up “Groove Therapy.” Trippy samples introduce “Precinct 9 (Extremix),” a final psychedelic trip of Technicolor trance to bring the listener back from a journey known as Ex-Terrestrial.

Roza Terenzi is the latest convert to the Kalahari Oyster Cult, the Australian producer debuts with four tracks showcasing her unique sound. Influences come from far and wide, shifting between electro, house, techno and even early rave anthems. The space bleeps of “Gigi” are soon interrupted by shouldering kick drums. Samples stagger and stumble before key stabs cut through beats in this hazy piece of early morning elation. “Mwah” maintains those euphoric moods. Snapping snares slice through shimmering synthwork and soaring strings to keep the night grooving. Darker tones enter with “Rare High”, but these shades are soon brightened by arcing notes. Acid lines squeak and squirm in this balancing act of disparate colours and chords. Distant lands and exotic encounters are conjured for “Soft”, perfumed percussion and meandering melodies mingle and merge for head swimming close of aromatic audio.
