Crate Digging with Andrew Wowk. 10 tracks you missed in January

Our in-house selector Andrew Wowk deigs deep down the Bandcamp hole to find 10 tracks you might have missed in January.

  1. Millsart – The Infinite Voyage [Axis Records]

Jeff Mills returns under his Millsart alias for another exploration of the fringes of house and techno, where jazz, funk, and warm percussive grooves combine with sci-fi sonic explorations and otherworldly aesthetics.

  1. Atomic Moog – Weeping In Dreams [NORITE]

https://norite.bandcamp.com/album/noritian-mysteries-ii

Taken from the Noritian Mysteries II compilation, this is the French producers at their trippy, stripped-down best.

  1. Cosmo Lopez – MMXX [SQNC Records]

https://sqncrecords.bandcamp.com/album/synergy

Warm, uplifting chords sparkle above thunderous, crunchy breakbeats in this throwback to the golden era of warehouse raves.

  1. Semi-Skimmed Edits (James Greenwood) – Jungle Music [Semi-Skimmed Edits]

https://semi-skimmededits.bandcamp.com/album/semi-skimmed-edits-002

Disco edits are a dime a dozen these days, but when a real gem comes along, it stands out from the pack. This drum trip is a real winner for any fan of the funk.

  1. Deadhand Feat. DJ Prime Cuts – Skitty [SEAGRAVE]

https://seagrave.bandcamp.com/album/meanwhile-ft-dj-prime-cuts-sensational

Techno luminaries Mark Broom and James Ruskin showcase the breadth of their talent with this grimy, abstract hip-hop banger with tight cuts and sample manipulation from DJ Prime Cuts.

  1. Clouds – Kriegerin am Shadow [The Parallel]

A beautiful piece of leftfield, EDM-inspired breakbeat that channels Aphex Twin and puts him in a grimy warehouse.

  1. Tim Reaper – Who Run It [Lobster Theremin]

The rapidly rising UK star returns to Lobster Theremin with a blazing slice of old school hardcore junglism.

Grinding, hypnotic, low-slung techno rhythms from a master of sound design.

Dark, twisted, and techy breakbeat with a deliciously growling bassline.
