Shall Not Fade make a very warm welcome to the original tropical cyber-punk, Ruf Dug. The Manchester veteran joins the label for it’s 51st release, 4 tracks brimming with Ruf Dug’s wigged out, balearic energy, one of which is a gorgeous remix from the unstoppable, Shanti Celeste. With a sound that’s hard to pigeon-hole, his role as vibe purveyor is impossible to deny. Over a decade of producing as Ruf Dug, aside from releasing on his own sought-after Ruf Kutz imprint, he’s graced Unknown To The Unknown, Rhythm Section and Music For Dreams, and many more esteemed labels with his midas touch.
‘Addicted’ is a feel-good bubbler - sun-soaked keys, bubbly synth and velvet vocals from the talented vocalist Danielle Moore mixed with a tinge of Ruf Dug’s love for retro sounds glimmering through Peach Disc’s boss and party-starter Shanti Celeste gives ‘Addicted’ a glistening euphoric rework; pacey, wigged out and a bunch of fun - a sound with which she is synonymous. Next up, ‘Manc Sunset’ is a stripped back broken beat number - ravey notions meet dream house vibes. Bringing ‘Manc Sunset’ EP to a close, ‘Lo-Fi Roller’ is a brain-melter - bugged-out vox and kickin’ beat summon that deep in the dance tingling feeling, one to get lost in!

Shall Not Fade celebrate their 50th release after 5 years of the label with an all-time favourite and long-time friend, the inimitable Byron the Aquarius . Returning to SNF for his second release on the label, the keyboardist, DJ and producer marks the labels milestone release perfectly. Sunsoaked house with a penchant for acid lines, jazz inspired keys and a bumpin’ groove, What Up Doe? Vol.2 i s Byron at his best. A sonic homage to the very beginning for us.
Opener ‘ She Want To Work It’ is a masterclass in low-key sass and class, referencing warm, dusty hip-hop beats and daydreams, as it shifts into a luscious, vox heavy kick and clap groove. Futuristic acid lines bubble up on seemingly dreamy dub number, into glitchy electro realms on ‘I Can Feel It’, before imploding into full-blown sci-fi territory on the flip. Here, ‘ Apes of Mars pt.2.’ is all nostalgia inducing samples and jazzy melodies, meandering between crunchy beats. Next up, ‘Cosmic Raindance’’ s enigmatic, sultry sci-fi vibes bring the EP to new levels. MDMA is back with Byron and the pair are on another planet with this post-watershed jackin’ house, bleeping out into the ether. Rounding out the EP nodding to his love for hip-hop and shimmery keys, ‘Can We Do It Again’ is Byron to the bone. Soulful, infectious house music which we can't get enough of.
