Weekly Chart w/3rd Dec 14
Osaka Monaurail – Hung – Up
Laidback but tight Funk 7”; perfect early-hours material, its strung-out strut sure to draw people towards the dancefloor.
Sabu Martinez – Hotel Alyssa-Soussie, Tunisia
Excellent piece of Latin Jazz propelled by a twisting saxophone solo and what sounds like an entire orchestra of percussion.
Masks – Wormhole
Label: Opal Tapes
Hypnotic and spacey grooves that sound almost as if they were recorded from the next room (but still pack a punch!)
Chevel – Tank
Spartan broken rhythms underpinned with monstrous reese subs, encased in cavernous reverbs and delays. Another great techno hybrid from Beneath’s consistent Mistry label.
James “Jack Rabbit” Martin – Rabbit Trax I (The Next Generation)
Legendary apocalyptic Chicago acid track reissued and remastered, having lost none of its impact since it first appeared in 1988.
