baze.djunkiii charts 07/2010

01. Clicks And Cuts Five: Paradigm Shift [Mille Plateaux]
It's defo great to see a label like Mille Plateaux being back on track in 2010, a year in which a style as wide ranged as Electronica seems to gain more attention again from all over the electronic music spectrum and even beyond that. Bringing back their groundbreaking "Clicks And Cuts"-series with a new twist plus introducing loads of new names instead of relying on well established artists is meaning a lot and hopefully more than a future forecast. This one will be regarded as relevant compilation piece for years.

02. Wierd presents Cold Waves + Minimal Electronics Volume One [Angular 067]
Another compilation, this one dealing with the sound of Minimal - / Synth- and Cold Wave. Styles quite unknown to the youth of today, or at least most of them. Well known names like Absolute Body Control or The Neon Judgement are to be found alongside underground groups like Land Of Giants, Ausgang Verboten, Nine Circles or Ruth which have their "Polaroid / Roman / Photo" featured on this, a tune also to be found on the highly recommended "BIPPP - French Synth Wave 1979/85" compilation released in 2006 via Born Bad Records. Btw - ItaloDisco fans will pleased by Stereo's uber-hit "Somewhere In The Night".

03. DJ Naughty - Firepower E.P. [Roska Kicks & Snares]
Well, honestly I don't get the point in most of the hype revolving around the UK Funky scene but this one immediately caught my attention due to its decent and universal attitude well fitting into a Phusion / Broken Beatz / BrokenHouse context. Indeed not an obvious banger but quite a timeless piece that grows. One for the DJ's out there.

04. Spooky - Murderer E.P. [Oil Gang 001]
News from the Slew Dem-stable which seem to have a new imprint up an running. Three Future Grime instrumentals plus one Reggae-influenced Dubstep tune.

05. Greg Wilson - Credit To The Edit Volume Two, Vinyl Two [Tirk 059]
There's many Edits floating around these days as Disco / (Neo)Disco seems to be on a new high but Mr. Greg Wilson is the one that provides true quality here. Two pieces fitting well into (Neo)Disco and DeepHouse sets plus a Vintage relick of The Third Degree's "Mercy" originally released via the legendary Acid Jazz label back in 2009.

06. Marmion - Schöneberg 2010 [Grand Casino 011 Promo]
See review for details...

07. Phonique feat. Ian Whitelaw - Our Time Our Chance [Dessous Recordings 096 Promo]
See review for details...

08. Maetrik - Gliding Blind E.P. [Audiomatique Recordings 041 Promo]
See review for details...

09. Martinez - The Paradigm Shift [Moon Harbour Recordings]
A well surprising album provided by Martinez including a bunch of eight tunes that will be loved by each and everyone appreciating classic House music. Imagine bits of NYC House inna Nervous Records stylee, mixed up with some decent DiscoHouse and a modern DeepHouse-twist.

10. [PRCS 007 Whitelabel]
No additional info given on this one. But who cares for names when there's four proper, well functional pieces of pumping House music?
