Crate Digging with Andrew Wowk – June

Our in-house selector Andrew Wowk picks 10 essentials for any DJ crate

John Tejada – Promo Committee [Palette Recordings]
https://johntejada.bandcamp.com/album/performance-review

Deep, warm, and techy, and created with the kind of mastery of analogue gear only Tejada has.

Peletronic – Wrapped In Silk (LeSale Remix) [Fortunea Records]
https://fortunea.bandcamp.com/album/blyss-fortunea012

Absolutely jam packed with soul and warmth, this lush deep house gem is as good as the genre gets.

Kodem – Vault Lines (Truncate Remix) [Kodem]
http://classic.beatport.com/release/vault-lines/2604191

LA’s Truncate delivers one of his finest remixes yet, finding the perfect balance between driving, percussive grooves and heady, engulfing synths.

Nelson Of The East – Burning Palm (Voodoo Version) [Tartelet]
https://nelsonoftheeast.bandcamp.com/album/p-a-l

Summery, swinging house with that organic edge that’s a trademark of Tartelet’s releases

Cyan85 – Computor Punk [Voitax]
https://voitax.bandcamp.com/album/bay-of-sampieri

Electro is making a serious comeback, and Cyan85 is right at the forefront. A wicked slice of up-tempo, futuristic funk.

Brame & Hamo – Transit [Brame & Hamo]
https://bramehamo.bandcamp.com/album/pressure-ep

With its stomping hybrid breakbeat/four-to-the-floor rhythm, rave vocal stabs, and huge bassline, this one is made to wreck dancefloors.

Mathew Jonson & Spaceandtime – Cabin Fever (De Sluew Vos & Sjamsoedin Remix) [Capsule]
https://www.beatport.com/release/cabin-fever/2614532

RAVE.

SDEM – 6448 [Central Processing Unit]
https://shop.cpurecords.net/album/index-hole

If there is a track out there that is more aptly deserving of the adjective “filthy”, I sure haven’t heard it.

Daphni Featuring Paradise – Sizzling Hot [JIALONG]
https://caribouband.bandcamp.com/track/sizzling

Now THIS is how you make an edit. A funk-fuelled slammer that is going to dominate the rest of Summer.

Dreadmaul – Dusty Breaks
https://paradiselostrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/the-archivist-ep

You’re getting exactly what the title says in this new school jungle ride: Plenty of classic breaks manipulated in new and interesting ways and some heavy sub hits to boot.
