Just having wrapped up the epic HATCHED compilation we roll right into the first original EP of the year. It seems like we’ve been blessed because Shadow Child has delivered an incredibly strong debut release. “String Thing” was given to me with support by Eats Everything and I’ve already seen it completely rip up several rooms on tour last month.
I thought that was going to be the A-side killer and then “Rustic Chip” came in which i think could possibly be even better. The production style is kind of like old school Solid Groove meets drum n bass and i’m really digging this record. Super-fat, well-mixed sounds put in all the right places, this stuff really works.

In the past months Siriusmo has locked himself into the studio to work on a new album. No gigs, no releases. Silence.“Doctor Beak’s Rantanplant” is meant to shorten the waiting time with some pleasurable Siriusmo entertainment. The 3 tracks here give you a hint on what to expect from the yet untitled next album planned for end of the year. (MS SC, 2012)
“Jimmy’s Gang” is FURTHER proof of the outstanding position that the iconic Austrian producer Parov Stelar holds in the Electroswing scene. For his new single he virtuously melts TOGETHER jazz’s love for detail and raw rave energy. This way something new and previously unheard arises. Stelar’s sound is AT THE same TIME ecstatic, playful, melodic, diva-esque, progressive and congenial – and it is always new and exciting. “Jimmy’s Gang” is a perfect TEASER for Parov Stelar’s fifth album. It is a deep and eclectic journey into sound and will be released in april. The single release of “Jimmy’s Gang” contains an additional remix by Enzo Siffredi. He strips the original track to it’s bones and reconstructs it to a deep and groovy house track. (Parov Stelar, Beatport 2012)
Si Begg has hooked us up with a free download of this here banger! This track has been knocking around for far too long. You may have heard it in my sets and at the end of the Pioneer DDJ-Ergo promo film. To my mind its not finished, but I’m done with it. So take it as it comes and share as you please. In fact I might follow it up with all the layers so one of you clever people can finish it off for me .. ha! (Si Begg SC, 2012)
