Ponty Mython – House for Sale EP

Ponty Mython - House for Sale EP

For his latest release, Dirt Crew and Quintessentials favorite Ponty Mython has linked up with Washington, DC-based imprint Better Listen for a five track package of globally inspired groovers.  The House for Sale EP maintains the sample-based production aesthetic of Better Listen’s debut record, and draws heavily from rare African funk and disco sources.  The Vilnius-based producer’s trademark eclecticism is injected throughout the record, with the A-side leaning more towards wonky, left-field house cuts and the flip hosting more disco-like arrangements.

Chaos In The CBD – Accidental Meetings EP

Chaos In The CBD - Accidental Meetings EP

Chaos In The CBD’s Ben & Louis Helliker-Hales team up with long-time friend and collaborator Jon Sable to present their new imprint ‘In Dust We Trust.’

In Dust We Trust is an ode to a collection of friends who share a certain understanding, who live by a love and respect for the people around them. That friend who saves that last puff for you, that friend who will share their drink with you when you can’t afford your own, that friend who will learn how to drive a car on the spot because you’re too drunk to make it home.

Kicking things off with a release from Chaos In The CBD, ‘Accidental Meetings’ is a record that celebrates this way of living. The four cuts effortlessly move you through a journey of delicate textures and atmospheres. It begins with the late night basement sounds of the title track, then sends you through the spacious and meditative ‘North Pole Cafe.’ The wild rhythms of ‘United Identities’ hypnotise you, until you find yourself spat out by the energetic grooves of ‘Distorted Fields.’

Play it in the club, play it in the hotbox, or play it for your mum, this record is filled with soulful, rhythmically complex, melancholic music that is unmistakably dusty.

Moscoman – A Saint And A Sinner

Moscoman - A Saint And A Sinner

Berlin based DJ Moscoman just announced the start of his new vinyl label “Treisar.”  Check out the B-Side ‘A Saint And A Sinner’ (premiered on Mixmag) of the first 12″ release called “Judah’s Lion” EP.

Hot on the heels of his ESP Institute debut album A Shot In The Light, Moscoman delivers the off-the-wall Judah’s Lion EP. The main track, Dalmar Arbon, is an infectious psychedelic funk UFO sending you in a maddening maze of swirling percussions and haunting abstract vocals. Dalmar Arbon In The Club takes the madness up a notch with a four to the floor version infused with acid sounding synths. The EP closes on A Saint And A Sinner, an uplifting dreamy groover that propels anyone listening to cloud nine.

Judah’s Lion is the first installment of Moscoman’s Treisar imprint, a limited 12 parts venture to unfold throughout 2017.

Moony Me – Screwdriver

Moony Me - Screwdriver

Secret Crunch Records is a new imprint established last year by Vienna-based artists Roman Rauch and Moony Me.  Both producers have a similar musical ethos heavily influenced by hip-hop, soul, funk and disco and this is evident in the samples used throughout their productions.  Their first EP, “Bunch of Crunch” featured the pair’s collaboration on four tracks plus two additional remixes.  Their second, aptly titled “One Split Wonder” EP will feature three tracks from each producer divided onto the two sides of the record.  There is no A or B side but rather the RR (Roman Rauch) side and the MM (Moony Me) side.

The Bolting Bits premiere is focused on the first track on Moony Me’s side, “Screwdriver,”  A classic percussion loop and a straight house beat form the backbone of the groove as stabby sampled chords are introduced into the fray.  A no-frills, vintage sounding bass line comes in and works well in tandem with the other elements.  The real ear pleaser here is the early 1990’s sped up R&B vocal sample (we’ll let you dig it up yourself) which makes an early, teasing appearance before the song is stripped back.  As the track breaks down the chords and vocals are brought back in, with a build-up in the groove it creates a perfect hands in the air moment which should be able to pack any dancefloor.

As always, don’t forget to check out the other stellar cuts on the record. This one is expected to hit store shelves at the end of the month so get your pre-orders in now!

Sad Eyes – I Keeps It Real EP

Sad Eyes - I Keeps It Real EP

Nothing like good ol’ fashion house music to warm your bones in the winter months.  Titled “I Keeps It Real,” the namesake track features ambient, spaced-out, house grooves sprinkled with vocal snippets of male character declaring his realness (we would probably be friends in real life).  The B-Side “Kinda Familiar,” follows the female character through a quest to find true love with just the slightest hint of acid (bass not drug.)  What ensues is a classic comedy of errors.

Anyway, it’s a masterpiece.

Carlo & Black Loops – Intermission EP

Carlo & Black Loops - Intermission EP

Carlo and Black Loops have joined forces together to release the “Intermission” EP. It’s full of catchy samples and funky soulful vibes. The release is out soon on Good Ratio Music but you can pre-order it!

An Italian-Spanish connection is always a good thing. The sort of sensual and Mediterranean emotions that Carlo and Black Loops can deliver, is a skill that has been taken far on this new EP.

The dichotomy can prove difficult to square sometimes, particularly when the guys have different paths in their sound. But the mix is rich here.

The Intermission EP is a packed full of soul samples, warm pads, and great solid beats wrapped up as a soulful declaration. Their massive love for music really shines through in this EP.
