The Duo helped define the early sounds of UKG & the then unheard sound of Speed Garage, Dubstep & Grime. The Duo had massive success with records like ‘Dangerous’ & ‘Well Well Well’ which is included here.
Alongside this there’s a Special treat for the UKG Heads out there, with a previously Unreleased unheard Dubplate Mix of ‘Well Well Well’, which was recently unearthed amongst Texsta’s expansive record collection.

The much loved requested ‘Real Love’ gets another outing, originally being the B-Side to the classic ‘Feel Da Vibe’.
On top of all this Goodness, listener’s get treated to two absolutely killer bonus tracks from Dunton D–56M alias, ‘Homage’ which features label mate & Soul singer Decarlo (Survival Dub) in a tribute to the teacher’s of the Chicago sound & ‘Medication’ which is an inspired dystopian house chugger, with a stark warning for the New World.

The Canadian duo M.S.L. debuts on the Clone Dub Series with a heady 4 track ep. Tracks that walk the fine line between classic headphone IDM and tripped out early morning dance floor cuts with bleepy arpeggios, soaring strings and shards of melodies. Very reminiscent of early F-com releases and our own harbour city duo Duplex's early works on Dub and Clone Records.

Nathan Micay is pleased to present the next re-issue on Eternal Schvitz: Aaron Palmquist - Cohesion EP. As a mainstay of the Canadian underground rave scene during the 90’s, Aaron (aka Chameleon) performed live at legendary Toronto parties such as Exodus, Chemistry and Pleasure Force. Using an assortment of gear including two TB303’s, a TR909 and 808 drum machine, he was able to road test a number of originals, eventually leading to an EP in 1997 on Solo Recoridings. Now, 22 years later, these amazing tunes can live again, completely re-mastred from previously lost DAT tapes along with a brand new 2019 remix of ‘Dreamtime’. As always, Schvitz gives back. To fight the evil no-ID-DJ forces currently at work, every Eternal Schvitz release will be providing 60% of the cut to the artists and ensuring their credits are front and centre. The remaining 40% of profits will go to aequa, a Berlin-based collective with a focus on empowerment of women, trans and non- binary folks through gatherings for interpersonal exchange. Schvitz is Love. Schvitz is Communal.

German duo Raumakustik are next up on Hot Creations with Animal / Waves, a stunning two track release that features a re-edit from label frontman Jamie Jones.
Animal starts proceedings, as a bouncing reverberating kick gives way to a synth-filled build up. An echoing vocal sample states “acid feel”, before hitting once again with a choppy, swinging bassline. Next up, Jamie Jones delivers a re-edit of Waves, featuring tinny hi-hats, hollow pops and a bouncing arcade build up that is guaranteed to cause a stir on any dancefloor.
Having released their Raider EP on sub-label Hot Trax and Dem A Pree on Emerald City, Raumakustik make their first appearance on Hot Creations. Respected producers in the house and techno scenes, they have also released on the likes of Suara, Toolroom and Microtonal Records. Jamie Jones is someone who needs little introduction.
Founder of Hot Creations as well as the Paradise event series, there are few feats left for the Welshman to conquer. Countless esteemed releases coupled with a passion-lead vision have seen Jones become a true master of his craft.

Released 15th March
Official re-release. Previously released on the nowadays impossible-to-get Blue Attack records, the short living sublabel of Bunker records releasing hardcore freeparty techno in the early to mid-nineties. 'T-Warp' is an archetypical track for this period: fast, subversive, dark and psychedelic. Re-mastered from the original source and pressed on a full side of 45RPM vinyl, it never sounded meaner before. Beam yourself up to the golden age when, while mainstream techno was turning into its capitalistic opposite, the truly free were kicking it in the dirt. It's time again.

Still reeling from their sought-after Ross EP on the hugely respected Natural Sciences label, Warren Raww present the To Adelaide EP, the first release on the newly founded, Bristol-based imprint, Piff Records.
The Adelaide duo have produced a 12 that ups the energy of their July EP, whilst still delivering on their own brand of melodic, synth-laden house music. This time flanked by comrades Arthur Miles and Freddie Norwood, they add to the already high volume of talent currently emanating from Australia.
The A1, 9 On Court 3, plays on the more low-end driven aspect of Warren Raww’s production style, with an off-kilter bass line bouncing erratically over the top of the slightly swung, punchy percussion, topped with a spaced-out, saturated synth palet. Fans of Kyle Hall’s From Joy and the deeper end of Lobster Theremin will resonate strongly with Neighbours, a more relaxed, broken number, augmented with small piano runs and sewn together with a contemplative chord progression asking of the listener a more emotional nuance.
On Jessica’s Place, Arthur Miles strips down to lay the foundations for a tasty, warp-drenched number, complementing his gliding pads with a great selection of raw percussion and improvised synth lines, culminating in a combination of soft and rugged. Freddie Norwood rounds off the four-track EP with Parallel To The Sky, a continuation of the stripped back, broken beat approach. He slowly builds musical blocks bringing in more and more melodic hooks before affirming his dreamy canvas with a welcomed bassline that swims around the vocal sample before the final drum rolls bring the EP to a close.

Pure, distilled Dub. Upholding Jamaica’s legacy as well as Germany’s unequivocally influential Dub Techno spirit, Moonshine Recordings proudly welcomes their next addition to the roster. On the controls for the 9th full-length album release, a true-to-the-roots, all-analogue musician: Another Channel. Having put himself on the map with releases on Soukah’s Blacksoil Records, Bristol’s Transient Audio as well as on Australian imprint Modern Hypnosis, it’s now time for the album release, we’ve all been waiting for. No computer involved as impeccable arrangements and analogue reverberations unfold. Live and direct in the original Dub mixing fashion, the Augsburg-based artist uniquely transports the sonic characteristics of Rhythm & Sound into the present time.
Subtle vinyl crackles gently introducing meditative beats, ‘Run Dub’ sets the pace. Keen listeners find themselves embedded in lively echoes and reverbs, left to bask in smooth, sonic contemplation. Engineered to soothe the soul, timeless foundation sound. Intensified groove meets low-frequency pressure in ‘Amir Dub’ among haunting melodica fragments. ‘(Yes!) Badness’ unsheathes its off-kilter swing, vocal and foley samples musing in the distance - further showcasing Another Channel’s technical prowess. Heavy chord stabs and delicate overdrive counterpoint the immense scope of conjured space in ‘Ael Na Dub’, concluding a beautiful A-Side.
Lush chords lure us to the flip-side - ‘Solid’ kicks off with a staccato bass-line in the midst of lavish white noise surges and minimal drums. Rooted in endless feedback trails, steadily kept in check. Previously teased, the mighty ‘Ethiopian Dub’ steps through in full glory, carried by militant drum motion and forceful low-end. On a more spacious excursion, ‘Uranus’ takes a brightly lit stroll through the analogue Dub universe, led on by Another Channel’s signature groove propulsion. Pointing back towards A-Side, prolific Dub proponent Babe Roots presents his musical qualities in a monumental remix of ‘Run’.

One of the most important artists in the development of the Horo sound, Astral Projection is the first full length ASC album for the Horo label. Astral Projection follows on clearly from ‘Imagine The Future’ with the development of the Grey Area sound progressing and becoming intrinsic to a large majority of ASC’s current work. But this LP is not a Grey Area addendum, Astral Projection is a luminous artistic statement from a sonic perfectionist who the term ‘sound designer’ was made to define. An accomplished and much respected ambient producer, ASC weaves his talent for soaring emotive soundscapes with his undeniable rhythmic prowess across a cohesive 12 track sonic voyage that again accomplishes a rare goal in todays electronic music landscape - a commanding listen from beginning to end. Very few artists are as prolific and consistent as ASC, but we are confident Astral Projection will be revered as one of his finest moments in years to come.
