Release Date: 28th July 2017
After the success of Closer to Freedom in 2014, Chicago legend DJ Jes returns to Tardis Records with the Between The Lines EP, featuring two lost tracks from his personal archives and a brand new offering. Opener ‘No Fooling’ is reduced to the bare essentials until an elegant snatch of piano and spoken word sample break it down further; when the track kicks back in with a vengeance everyone in the room will know all about it, but it remains subtle enough to work the day after as well. On the flip, ‘Between The Lines’ is tougher and dubbier and will do some serious peak-time damage, whilst new track ‘Lost’ is a cut-up banger for the floor and a perfect DJ tool. All tracks have been meticulously edited and rearranged by label owners Eli Verveine and Oscar Schubaq in order to extend the grooves and maximise dance floor impact.

For the sixth release on Tardis Records, label owners Eli Verveine and Oscar Schubaq proudly present two tracks from the personal archives of Peter Kremeier a.k.a. Losoul, a man who has been rocking dancefloors and enchanting listeners with his uniquely abstract and tripped-out take on minimal house for two decades and counting.
On the A-side, “Soda Island” hangs cut-up vocal stabs over the last word in bone-dry, bass-heavy grooves. “Sparkling Please” on the flip starts out cheerfully but then subtly mutates into spooked insectoid psychedelia anchored by crisp percussion and bass. Drop either of these cuts at the right moment and watch the dancers lose their minds! Mastered and cut by Stefan Betke at Scape Mastering.

Latest addition to the Tardis Records family is non other than quintessential Swedish techno veteran Jesper Dahlbäck: The man who has arguably had his finest club moments under his The Persuader moniker.
An ode to the fl oral beauty of his nordic homeland, the three cuts of the "Vårblommor EP“ tread his much beloved, hypnotic path between techno and house. It’s the subtle quirkiness and authentic grit that makes these productions stand out from the vast uniformity of dubby club tracks.
Opener "Vitsippa“ is a particularly inviting number – a grand opus with irresistible drive and intermittent crackly vocals: That rare case of a dancefl oor healer. On the flip, "Blåklocka“ is more laid-back, a reminisence of the persuaders early svek production style with a deep sub-bass, ambient textures and fl uttering melodies fuse into a deep, majestic groove. Driven by a positively forward-marching snare drum, "Snödroppar“ fuses vivacious synths to delayed patterns, creating yet another track awash in a kind of sentimental lucidity. Endlessly looping through the night, these three jewels will make their way into the hearts and crates of the discerning DJ.
