Our in-house selector Andrew Wowk lays down his 10 essential tracks from January
Tendts – Eternal [Public Release Recordings]
A joyful slab of Balearic nu disco that conjures images of vibrant sunsets and endless horizons.
CV313 – Belle Isle Symphonics [Minimood]
Deep, heady dub techno that utilises minor chords and analogue delays to excellent effect. Let the whole twelve minutes ride out – it’s worth it.
Carlota – Your Destination [Trip]
Nina Kraviz’s label continues its journey through the exciting cosmic space where IDM and techno meet, with Carlota delivering a wonky, hypnotic, funked-out groove and trippy vocals.
Clavis – Floyd (Remix) [Freerange Records]
This driving, uplifting house banger that takes influences from Italo disco and electro is the ultimate way to end a set on a high note.
6th Borough Project – Find Your Rhythm (Jad & The Remix) [Fifty Fathoms Deep]
Lush chords, shuffling organic percussion, and clever vocal samples come together on this warm, soulful house ride.
Marco Passarani – Get Down [Offen Music]
Taken from his first solo album in over a decade, this chunk of raucous acid house from one half of Tiger & Woods feels like it would have been at home in Ron Hardy’s record bag back in the 80’s in Chicago.
Nkisi – VII [UIQ]
Lo-fi, distorted breakbeat with a contemplative, melancholy edge.
Julia Govor & Jeroen Search – You Are The Machine [Pushmaster Discs]
Slamming machine-led grooves. A must-have for anyone who likes their techno funky, up-tempo, and clinical.
Shcaa – An Ungrateful Death [R&S Records]
Seriously off-kilter, wigged-out minimal house that incorporates chopped-up electric guitar samples, murmured vocals, and razor sharp drums.
DJ Overdose – Shocker [Turn It Down Music]
Gritty, low-down electro sounds full of tripped-out atmospherics, ominous atmospherics, and propelled by a driving bassline groove.
