Skipson is back, finally. The wait is over and it was worth it though. After several releases on Deep Vibes, Quintessentials, Maria Colors, Raum…Musik and many other labels, the Berlin based house head is back in the game. With his new „Plastek EP“ he created the content for DreamAwake Records‘ first vinyl release. As usual Skipson is doing some serious things with his very unique house sound that is heavily influenced by hip hop. Chopped samples get mashed up with cozy vibes. Three originals and a remix by Edward made it onto the record in the end. Superb house music with Skip’s signature sound on twelve inch again. Don’t call it a comeback! Keep reading
Iron Curtis makes his return to Office Recordings from Berlin with his „Maple EP“ marking the 10th release by Baaz’s imprint. After reminiscing on his „The K.M.S. Years EP“, which was the fourth release by Office Recordings, he now shows his more dubby and minimalistic side. After several releases on labels like Morris Audio, Jackoff Records, Boe Recordings, Hudd Traxx, Retreat, Polytone and his album „Soft Wide Waist Band“ on Mirau, he now highlights some dub influences. While we all followed Iron’s progress from beautiful and warm house with focus on chords and strings over to melodic and emotional club music with a more synthetic and modern approach, he secretly crafted some real beauties from the fields of dub techno and ambient, that are now offered to the public as the tenth release on Office.

Interstate’s Untitled EP marks the first release for the newly founded Whytenumbers label. The strange spelling of „whyte“ is a small hint to the main label it belongs to, we are talking about Blaqnumbers of course. While Blaqnumbers always played with a bit of downtempo and hip hop elements in combination with raw and deep house sounds, Whytenumbers now gets a bit more experimental and takes those elements more serious, as well as serving a bit of uptempo house as well. Interstate’s EP clearly depicts a strong relationship to early hip hop and electronic influences throughout. Four sublime tracks came across the road and build a great debut release for the Whytenumbers imprint. Keep reading
