Airtight/Distance will soon be releasing this fine EP of great remixes of tunes from the legendary Chicago house producer Larry Heard. It’s great to see the master of the past colliding so beautifully with some of today’s best electronic music practitioners. There are really good remixes from Julio Bashmore, Mak & Pasteman, Wolf + Lamb and The Emperor Machine. More from this EP in forthcoming Melodica shows for sure.
The first release of 2012 from Melodica Recordings is from a mystery Balearic techno duo. Who cares who they are when the music is this good.
Here’s another mystery artist, known only as Close, for now. The Close Music Soundcloud page says this:
“Close is the brainchild of an artist who initially wishes to remain anonymous. His upcoming debut album ‘Getting Closer’ is the result of a series of fruitful collaborations and musical alliances with some of the most exciting producers, musicians and vocalists out there.”
Pool are a three piece rock band from Hamburg in Germany. What makes them interesting for us is the fact that they have been remixed by man of the moment Solomun. He has the knack of knocking out fine bassline driven, sdeceptively simple tunes that work so well on the dancefloor. His mix of Game Over is another one of those.
