There was much interest in the Ambient and more laid back releases I mentioned in my previous post. To balance things out and to satisfy the friendly requests I’ve decided to share some beat orientated recommendations. I post links and recommendations more frequently on Twitter, so come on by and say hello. Enjoy these fantastic Netlabel releases and support the artists if possible.
Thefft – The primer EP – Cut Records
The crew at Cut run a tight ship. Their attention and love for high quality releases is unyielding. In their latest low frequency salvo, Thefft delivers a unique dubbed out tech groover peppered with synths. As samples shots and broken beats mutate, this 3 track EP almost has an early 90′s warehouse feel. As with all releases on Cut, it’s hard to pigeon hole this EP, even after several listens it’s still hard to figure out if the beats are about to drop to more a languid level or become delirious. A sure player for the headphones or in a DJ set, tasty morsels once again from Cut. Download the release now.
Marcoerre – When i’m away – Unfoundsound
The third release on unfoundsound by Italian producer Marcoerre. When I’m away’ EP is an easy going minimal Techno number. Spacious and dreamy layers are inter-fused with old school analogue drum hits. Purposeful pattern changes and synth sweeps keep the listener mesmerized. Perfect for attention with a set of headphones or on a very large club sound system. Recommended. Download the release here.
