When artists “Poolside” (Los Angles) & Brazilian legend “Fatnotronic” team up, they bring you yet another masterpiece collectors item. “Esperar Pra Ver” is a fun party song, swaying you right on down into the warm welcoming waters of Ipanema Beach, sneaking in 303 acid lines along your path. Label owner TonyAdams in full swing with “Estou Livre” which translates to (I Am Free) sure to make you feel free on any dance floor. Daniel T gets psychedelic with intoxicating vocals and percussions. Get lost in these world rhythms. Brazilian artist “Joutro Mundo” sends us this disco chugging classic “Nao Force” with gleaming shining vocals and a four on the flour.
The opening track is Manmade Deejay making his first solo appearance on the label with ‘Club V-Bee’. This one is already approved by the deep house community. On the inner cut of the A-side, Manmade teamed up with the infamous Hi Mount on ‘Impresionante’. Flipping the record you will find ‘Friends & Strangers’ by DJ Sports making his second solo appearance on RB. Hi Mount round up the record with their heater ‘In The Heat’ straight out of the cave in Højbjerg (R.I.P).

New Ascetic House 12″
For their latest trip into saucer-eyed deep house territory, San Francisco’s Spring Theory crew has wisely recruited fast-rising Canadian producer Project Pablo. The Montreal man predictably delivers a four-track EP of rich, musically evocative cuts that seem tailor made for chilly summer sunrises and hazy, drawn-out sunsets. Check, for example, the bouncy, delay-laden positivity of dub house shuffler “Forgetful House”, the restless drum machine hits and trippy electronics of “Smudge”, and the baggy positivity of opener “Morning Shift”, whose toasty Rhodes chords and undulating synthesizer lines are accompanied by some wonderfully loose and live sounding drums.
Delroy Edwards has come a long way. 2012 marked his introduction into the world of Dance Music via Ron Morelli’s Imprint LIES. After offering up essential dance floor singles like ‘4 Club Use Only’ and ‘Heart and Soul’ Edwards’ established himself as a producer with a unique touch and style. With a growing desire to control his own output and make a more significant statement, Delroy set off to start his own imprint, L.A. CLUB RESOURCE.
Creatively directing his own imprint became a platform for him and over the course of two years L.A.C.R. created one of the most palpable musical experiences in the field. The label released music in a range of styles from a span of generations, the only constant was the high output and stellar art direction. Many releases produced by the label head himself, Delroy’s production were lauded for their piercing simplicity, grace and attitude.
In his first LP for the label, Edwards’ has arranged a sincerely personal moment. The 30-track effort marks a special moment in his growth blending current interests in punk and electronics into an outsider narrative like no other. From Devo to J Dilla the influences across the record are subtle but respectful. Regardless of influence, Hanging at the Beach feels unequivocally new. Experiencing the LP for the first time speaks to the Californian experience in its full range. Certain moments call to the beaches of Monterey while others speak to the sleeze that lines Hollywood Blvd. Edwards doesn’t distance himself from the production style that has defined him and the label, but this effort is a long playing collection, a directed, new moment for the prolific producer.

B2 –RüF Dug, Jack Doepel Daintree
“Luca Lozano continues where his Junglish Massive Mixtape stopped, his A-side tracks span from stiff & techy breakbeat with pads as well as uptempo D&B with warm bass & classic sounds. Rüf Dug winds it up on the B, first more uptempo and frenetic but then he eases out with a marvelous chill out jungle cut with saxophones and all that atmosphere one can need for dreaming.”
L.A.-based Brazilian producer Jesse Pimenta a.k.a Dreams with a trio of tuffened club constructions for his own label, Private Selection Records. Up front, ‘Energy’ and ‘Twisted Karma’ bring a percussive pressure recalling work from Tessela, Randomer or The Zenker Brothers, but the B-side is a different beast altogether, twysting-a-belly with a grinding, mutant techno torque.
On Dither he gets down with a urgent, trippy sound primed for foggy, redlit basements – creeping up on ya with the tightly tucked and paranoid funk of Time For The Tumult, and a nastier electro rhythm named Parodist that sounds a bit like Beua Wanzer, whereas the flipside twists off two microtonal jack tracks in Spinebash and the acidic flutter of F.T.H.

A1 Chasing Away The Night
“The second of two new Gesloten Cirkel releases for Murder Capital following his 2014 album for the label, Submit X. ‘Charning’ is a deranged acid cut with unexpected rock undertones, ‘Perron’ is a warehouse-ready dance track, and ‘Chasing Away The Light’ is a very fun club number.”
