baze.djunkiii Charts 08/2k22

01. baze.djunkiii - In Macrospace [The Absence Of Light 001]
See announcement post for details...

02. Nihiti - Sustained [Lo Bit Landscapes 019]
See review for details....

03. Dawn Penn - No No No [Soul Jazz Records 477]
One of the most essential Studio One Rocksteady classics backed by Dub Specialists "Creator Version" and therefore a must have for all collectors of everything Roots, Foundation and Bass Music of any kind. But oh boy... we really wonder what actually justifies a distribution wholesale price north of 15€ for a two track 12" re-issue housed in a standard label sleeve? Who's about to pay twenty quid+ for a record like this in a brick and mortar store? This is getting ridiculous - and ridiculously out of hand!

04. Liminanas / Garnier - De Pelicula [Because Music]
What an album. What a combo of artists. Spread over the course of a 2LP album set we see the long-standing Liminanas and dedicated electronic music pioneer, DJ and producer Laurent Garnier dive deep into a thrilling amalgamation of PostPunk-elements, KrautDisco grooves and driving DesertRock elements alongsides bits of Psychedelia, echoes of (Neo)Cosmic and, of course, proper songwriting for extended night drive journeys. Defo one that's up to par with releases on the late DC Recordings label and one that will become a staple on the dancefloors of our forthcoming BETA-ZERFALL parties for a reason.

05. Various Artists - Running Back Mastermix: Front Classics By Boris Dlugosch [Running Back]
After dedicating two entire 2LP compilations to the sound once played in Hamburg's seminal Front club, a major hub for House music at the time, the label brings even more classic tunes to the table with this five track compilation EP. And yes, the main vibe is House, the majority of the tunes bordering DeepHouse even, with two major cuts to focus on. For one, there's "Come 2Gether" by the oftentimes despised U96 project of "Das Boot" fame in its 'Subtle Dub Mix' crafted by Boris Dlugosch and later HardTrance legend and Tunnel-resident Gary D. under their conjunctional moniker Subtle Houzze which caters an uplifting, well hypnotic groove for all oldskool House connaisseurs whereas VDT's "Strangest Music *Boris Dlugosch Edit" revives the sound of the Vorsprung Durch Techno - yes, that's hat VDT stood for in those naive and probably better times - in a well sexy and seductive manner.

06. Tommy 2000 - 2K Musik [G-Town 003]
The most recent 003 of the elusive G-Town label covers quite a lot of musical grounds within a total of five tracks. Starting from washed out, atmospheric Juke x Broken Techno fusion vibes, progressing into to proper bass-heavy TechHouse x Techno derivatives and raw hounded Breakbeat excursions as well as providing more highly seductive and bass-heavy, super functional Broken Techno in "Tuna" and more of a Gangsta Jungle / Breakbeat Hardcore attitude in "T-2000" this 12" caters to many a taste, yet doesn't commit fully to one specific style which might make it difficult for Tommy 2000 to entice a specific audience with this release.
