Alex Burkat is back on Third Ear following his arresting debut, the 285 Kent ep (3EEP-2014_05). His signature sound is on full display here, again. The new ep is harder and faster than the 285 Kent ep; more 'up', for a different time of night. 3am Eternal music. Many artists strive to sound like someone else. Some strive for individuality and some of those succeed. Alex Burkat is one of those who has succeeded. His music is epic, wide-screen and lush, deep and with plenty of weight.

Mathias Schaffhauser, founder of German label Ware Records debuts on Third Ear with a 3-track 12". This is 'big-sky', expansive, driving Techno; even the beatless version of Grad Minus 12. Mathias Schaffhauser's Ware Records had a very recognisable sound. It was one of the defining labels of the Cologne Sound, most associated with Kompakt these days. But in the 90s and early 00s, Ware was as significant a label, especially for DJs. This release is very much a good example of THAT sound, still sounding fresh and bristling with good energy.

Mike Clark, Detroit Beatdown founder and former UR operative Agent X, gives some love to Weather Report's wonderful River People. There are two versions on this translucent green 12". The Beatdown Rework and the House Mix. Both are stone-cold bombs. Jaco Pastorius' awesome bass line and Joe Zawinul's cascading synths primed for the dance floor. Mike has done an amazing job on a modern Jazz classic. Don't sleep on this. VINYL ONLY. Limited to 500.
