Few DJs have truly trashed the rulebook like Fake Blood. When his remixes snuck onto the dance scene in 2008, he shied away from the spotlight and, like a dancefloor ninja, managed to keep his identity firmly under wraps. There were no gimmicks, no stadium-sized headpieces or fancy dress masks to obscure him, just a desire for club heads to absorb his music without any preconceptions. Four years and four EPs on, Keating is still something of an enigma. He doesn’t prey on fame, he does very few interviews and he isn’t part of a DJ crew: he has always preferred to let his music speak for itself. He’s been in no hurry to release a record either – until now, that is. Keating has found a home on Different Recordings, which counts club crusaders like Tiga, Felix Da Housecat and Vitalic among its roster, and is finally ready to present his debut album: Cells.

BS1 are back after their glorious debut release “BE AS ONE” with 3 heavy stompers straight out of Italy. ”The Rust” has everything that you need for a perfect peak-time track: crafty 4/4 techno kicks layered with some scratched LFO synths. “Gold Rush” on the other hand takes it to a tense string-thing tune including a massive driving bassline in the background. You will feel like riding roller coasters. The last track “The Need” is bolstered with fat blobby sounding kicks matched with pitched girly vocals. You will love this!

Twin Turbo reaffirms its commitment to puttin’ it all the way over the top with a new release from Scotland’s Ado, formerly best-known for his work on Fake Blood’s Blood Music, and now widely-beloved for his association with us. Ado (pronounced “Ay-Dough”) describes his sound as ranging from “stupidly heavy” to full-on “stupid”, which is something we can very much get behind, and has formed the basis of the label’s most successful grant applications. This is the kind of release that’s all about release, harnessing the tension of the loudest club you’ve ever seen with tracks that build endlessly into the peak-time ether. Twin Turbo – these are the MP3s you’ll be telling your grandkids about when you’re telling them where grandkids come from. (Turbo Recordings SC, 2012)
