The album art of this release from Mickey Kojak is perfectly fitting for his latest single “Bone.” The song has a unique smoothness, but disturbing grit to it that makes this release one of a kind. He successfully melds Techno darkness with upbeat vocal grooves.

Forthcoming May 25th on Nice Age, the young label helmed by Oxford darling, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, brings you the “Tokyo EP” from American producer, MANIK. There is much to admire about this release, with each of it’s three tracks offering a modern interpretation of classic, Chicago psychedelia. Here, we have your exclusive, first look at the closing title, “Silver,” a bubbling, acid house number with a boat load of hand claps and warbley 303 riffs.

One of my favorite little labels, Love Dose Records, goes digital for the first time with the latest EP from London vocalist/producer duo, Jacksun Fear. They’re “Hacienda Mike EP” is three tracks of gritty, throwback inspired house cuts that channel a dark, vintage feel and could easily be taken straight out of a darkened, Manchester warehouse circa 1986. The title track utilizes 909 beats alongside a tight modern roaming bassline create an infectious groove accompanied by deep, vocoded spoken word vocals adding an darkly ominous vibe. The second track, “Acid Boots” has a driving Tech-House beat and bass line with layers of classic percussion elements are tuned towards grove with a classic and a groovy acid lead. The final track, “USSR” shows a slightly different side to the duo with their acid-techno style taking a deeper, more modern soundscape with whispered vocals and huge 80’s pop/rock drum fills.
