Parts in the post, pt. 29

Armand van Helden's new single "Sugar" has been released via PIAS recently. Taken from his latest album "Nympho" on Southern Fried Records the CD-version holds five mixes of the this track - Radio Version featured as well as the Original Club Mix plus additional reworks by Paper Faces and CagedBaby, which take care of "Sugar" inna very effective and functional way, clearly aiming towards the primetime crowd. If you're into AvH anyway this single is another part to add to your collection.

Cat.No.008 of Worldless Records is Marko Laine's double-A-sided single "Time To Say Goodbye / No Phones" which is about to set dancefloors on fire within the next months. "Time To Say Good By" is a quite deep and slightly trancey piece of dreamy minimalism for early morning hours containing nice string arrangements, decent rave-orientated harmonies and a massive vocal hook that sticks in ones eardrums after hearing the tune for the first time. "No Phones" on the flip is more pumping and peaktime though, so this 12" delivers a proper high quality value for money package for every upfront DJ. Get it.

Mashnum PI feat. Bad Bluntclan's "Wannabeatz" has been released on a nice blue vinyl 7" matrixed MOVE IT 001 these days which is limited to 303 copies worldwide. Expect a massive oldskool'ish DarkJungle roller with ravey stabs and a whole lot of familiar samples taken out of classic early 90's tracks. As the matrix number suggests clearly this is a bootleg production and who's on vocal duties? The Original Mad Stuntman of Reel2Real-fame who used to mash up NYC's House music underground first and finally gained mainstream success in 1994 via Strictly Rhythm. File under: H-I-T!
