NU-Endup EP

Posted in News on December 1, 2016 by dk


The sophomore release on the Ouïe imprint brings three more killer cuts into the universe. Made up of the production outfit NU – based in Germany but clearly well travelled and open to diverse sounds from around the globe- this EP is full of groove laden sunshine vibes.

‘Endup’ is the lead track – a swingy, afro-tinged disco outing with warm, trippy percussion and a hypnotic, joyful vocal sample sure to bring smiles to every dancefloor.

‘Cosa Mia’ slows things down a few BPM – a chugging beat and balearic vibe, enhanced by a beautiful string section that makes this a no-brainer for a sunrise / sunset session.

‘Palomita’ delivers a similar feel, but with slightly more drive to it – shifting from a mid tempo groover to a latin hip shaker with perfect aplomb. This three tracker is going to win the hearts of open-minded DJs and dancers alike

Langenberg -Central Heated House

Posted in News on December 1, 2016 by dk


After a considerable career releasing on numerous labels, as well as being co-founder of Essen based label Mild Pitch, Langenberg finally drops his first album under this alias. Max Heesen, (who is also one half of Ribn with Manuel Tur) delivers the smartly titled ‘Central Heated House’ for Steve Bug’s Dessous Recordings.

The LP format suits Langenberg’s hypnotic house classicism well, allowing time and space to stretch out the grooves and moods over four sides of vinyl – working both for the DJs and perfect as a soundtrack for the autumn.

The LP kicks off with ‘Jade’, a melancholic, tape saturated introduction to Langenberg’s deep tastes. ‘Room 210’ maintains this atmosphere, with fizzing percussion and warm Detroit-esque melodies. ‘Groove 26’ is perfectly timed for the hot summer, as lush Rhodes chords and KDJ style vocal snippets provide the heat for the openair vibes.

Posted in News on November 21, 2016 by dk


The Cosmic Bridge label celebrates its fifth year with a third volume of its Cosmology series of compilations featuring 10 productions hand picked by label head Om Unit.

Om Unit Presents Cosmology Vol.3 continues its showcase of the label’s roster — with this year’s additions of J Kenzo, J(ay)A.D, and TMSV — and of the varied takes it offers on dubwise, electronic, and bass-heavy soundscapes and productions. “This is the best Cosmology yet for me,” says Om Unit. As always, the compilation includes exclusive solo productions as well as collaborations and remixes of previous releases.

Parisian dub specialist Moresounds and London’s J:Kenzo open proceedings with ‘Real Tree Riddim’, a solid roller that challenges the legs. Moresounds also turns in a spatial rework of Om Unit’s ‘Wagonist’, sending the original further down the cave, and J:Kenzo updates his well-received ‘Skatta’ with a percussive VIP version. Newcomers TMSV and J(ay)A.D both show…
