The big catch-up post (part one)

Okay, so going back to the 'I AM going to bring this blog up to date if it ruddy well kills me' thing, over the course of this week I'm gonna do some round-up type posts running quickly through some cuts that as yet haven't had the justice they deserve on here. Starting with this lot, which all came out late Feb or early March…

Jose Souze - Camarera EP (Erase, 28 Feb)
A Latin-infused tech-houser from Wasabi’s label, with a more driving mix from Outcode

Mat Le Star - Life After (Techno Therapy, Mar 1)
Spacey techno with a hint of Italo, plus a more downtempo refix from Treble

Max Duke - This Is Blue EP (Smiley Fngers, 28 Feb)
Quality tech-house as we’ve come to expect from SF, with a little added ethnic flava

Mendo & SM - I Like It Remix EP (Cray1 LabWorks, 2 Mar)
Percussion-led rubs from Julian Chaptal and Wally Lopez & Ismael Rivas, but it’s the deeper pass from Oren Bi that’s working for me

Namespace - Sentinel (Stripped Recordings, 3 Mar)
More of a prog thing, really, but could work in deeper sets as well

Nick Daring - Decomposition Of The Past EP (Kiara Records, 5 Mar)
Four cuts of slightly leftfield-ish and hard-to-classify deep/prog/tech bizniss from this relative newcomer, but it’s the jazzed-up deep of David Labeij’s remix of Paint On Desh I suggest you seek out

Paul Francini - Paul Francini EP (Mutated Audio, 1 Mar)
If you like it on the minimal, glitchy side, check this

Samuel L Session - Broken Floor EP (Ground Factory, 28 Feb)
Deep, freaky techno for those twisted 4am moments in dark rooms

Tazz - Underground (Tsuba Limited, 6 Mar)
Two slabs of defiantly sparse underground tech-house on Tsuba’s vinyl-only sub-label… be quick cos they usually sell out fast

Thodoros Triantafillou & CJ Jeff - Not Only U (Rhythmetic, 4 Mar)
Not sure about the slightly Underworld-y white man’s blues of the vocal, but there are some nice old-skool house sounds on the Roberto Rodriguez Remix

Various - Schlack Purple 003 (Schlack Records, 4 Mar)
A six-track V/A sampler from this French tech-house label. Some of it’s a bit glitchy for me but check Tom Ap & Ferro’s Everybody for a housier vibe.

Vogue & Stein - Here To Move (Wired Music, 4 Mar)
Deep house on the original, tech-house on the Gabriel & Castellon Remix, so take your pick!
