Juan Power (Juan Maclean x Man Power) - Crescendo EP

$15.00

The debut of Juan Maclean and Man Power's collaborative alias Juan Power. Released via Life And Death, limited distributed stock of 20 copies in the DFA store. Heavyweight blue vinyl with a trippy donut / eagle collage jacket. 

Tracklist:
A1 Crescendo
B1 Excuse Me Daddy (DJ Tennis Edit)
B2 Praise The Toad

Text via Life And Death

Life and Death continue to serve up brilliantly unpredictable releases with a new one that brings together American DFA stalwart Juan MacLean with the UK’s Me Me Me label head Man Power, plus an edit from the boss, DJ Tennis. 

Juan MacLean is a multi-faceted artist who has a history of everything from playing in post hardcore bands to producing some of DFA’s most celebrated releases. He does classy house bangers with synth pop and disco layers like no one else. Man Power, meanwhile, is someone who is fantastically eclectic in what he does on all fronts as a DJ, label boss and producer. He’s made corrugated acid, hands in the air house and machine disco and plenty in between on his own label, but also cult outlets like Correspondent and ESP Institute. The coming together of these two undoubted studio wizards, then, is a fascinating prospect. 

And so it proves right from the off: opener ‘Crescendo’ is a nine minute masterpiece with rickety house drums making you move while the shuffling percussion builds the pressure. Gorgeously warm chords eventually join the fray and have a blissful effect that sets you off dreaming and keeps you in a trance until the end. 

DJ Tennis himself then steps up with an edit of ‘Excuse Me Daddy’ that is deep and cavernous. Next to the suspensory pads is an intricate synth line that takes you in on yourself in perfectly melancholic ways. 

Closer ‘Praise The Toad’ then picks up the pace with more live sounding drums and a sparkling lead synth that rises and falls to cosmic effect. Drawn out over the full length of the track, and in amongst some chattery claps and smart effects, it makes for a journey to the stars that will cast a real spell on all who hear it.

Sheffield-based vinyl only record label specializing in long form, deep dance floor originals & disco edits. "Allegedly" spearheaded by Richard Barratt, more commonly known as Crooked Man

Mysterious Crooked Man tracks on iconic Sheffield nudisco / dance label Bitter End.  "Incapable" - "a warm, woozy and disco-flecked chunk of happy-but-sad dancefloor goodness" (juno)  features vocals from Róisín Murphy. The track was eventually released digitally and given Best New Music status by Pitchfork.  Though it remains the standout, the vibrant piano boogie feels of "Feeling You Feeling Me" are met with a similar magic to "Princess", which functions as a bit of a re-work of "Incapable".

The LP that made us fall in love with this band! Recently repressed by Vermont's amazing NNA Tapes, pick it up before it's gone again!

"Brand new full-length from Brooklyn's Guerrilla Toss. Unbridled and demented noise rock with heavy doses of technical hammering , extreme musicality, and heaps of perverse funk. Complex composition mixed with raw punk energy make Gtoss one of the most refreshing young bands out there. Ride the guerilla!"

Black Dice - Big Deal (LIES071)

$15.99

Forming during 1997 in Providence, Rhode Island experimental group Black Dice have without question paved their own way through their 20 year career. Doing what you want to do when you want to do it, no questions asked with a fully informed yet blatant disregard for everything surrounding them, always with acute execution and an ever changing singular sound. No gimmicks, no nonsense, since the beginning.

Somehow it would only make sense for Dice and L.I.E.S. to link up and after a long friendship we see it come to fruition. With this two track 12 inch Dice put their foot on the gas and ramp it up. You wanted to shred? Well this shreds. Is it a snapshot of the past? A possible nod of things to come? A moment frozen in time? We leave it for you to decide.

DFA is proud to stock the latest solo release from Nik Void, via Vienna, Austria's Editions Mego. 

Tracklist: 
1)  Meantime (Part 4)
2) Twin Cases
3) Meantime (Part 1)
4) Free Founder 
5) DEABG (#1 &2)

"NPVR is the moniker taken on board by PITA AKA Peter Rehberg and Factory Floor’s Nik Void. 33 33 is their debut recording. Peter and Nik both share formidable reputations in the post industrial shape-shifting world of sound and form with a vast range of releases and collaborative endeavours over a number of years. Together they tie together their collective experience into a vast array of sonic devices unleashing an album of pragmatic imbalance and psychedelic orientation. Blurring the lines of techno, ambient, avant garde, noise etc 

33 33 positions itself in the nebulous realm of contemporary (dis)comfort presenting itself on the border of music and sound, the social and the private." - Editions Mego. 



All tracks by Nik Void & Peter Rehberg
Recorded and edited at The Premises, London, July 2017
Mastered by Russell Haswell at Haswell Studio, London, August 2017

Factory Floor - Transform / Wonder

TRACKLIST: 
A1) Transform
B1) Wonder

The second installment of Factory Floor's score to Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece Metropolis. 

Transform, a section inspired by Maria's transformation from human into the robot, reveals itself in a haze of accumulating ambience and scattered percussion that evolves into the heavy repetitive bass groove reassuringly stabilizes Maria's journey into metamorphosis. The slow tempo and atmospheric wash of synths and electronics on side B 'Wonder' offering a hesitant hush contrast. (text by Boomkat)

Factory Floor - Heart Of Data

$18.00

Limited private stock of ten 12" singles. 

Tracklist:
1) Heart Of Data (soundtrack edit)
2) Babel (soundtrack edit)

 

"Factory Floor are the latest to do that electronic musician’s rite of passage; re-scoring Fritz Lang’s silent cinematic landmark Metropolis, with results shared on the 1st release thru their H/O/D Records.

After shedding a member and regathering thoughts, FF’s Nik Colk Void and Gabriel Gurnsey reveal a sleeker new sound here, easing off the brittleness of their earlier releases with more smoothly contoured, malleable designs for dancefloor fluidity. 

Heart Of Data (Soundtrack Edit) is the more ‘floor focussed cut, working skittish, latinate drum trills in and around arcing synths in a way that smartly conveys the futuristic architectural designs and themes of their subject, especially when their vision really comes together in the final third. s

On the other hand, Babel (Soundtrack Edit) finds them working with almost Cumbia or Dembow shuffle on an elastic meter, sounding like techno on 33 not 45, and embedded in tactile, sticky bed of phasing synth washes for the 12 minute duration." - Text provided by Boomkat

$14.99

Justin from Invisible Conga People lived in Japan for five years and formed this group with three Japanese friends. They recorded an album in summer 2001 with DFA but the group disbanded shortly thereafter and the record was never released.
In the same way Invisible Conga People seamlessly blends vintage synth and Krautrock with modern electronic elements to create its own hypnotic, psychedelic sound, We Acediasts took the angular bombast of no wave and wove in the expansive, arching elements of Sonic Youth, P.I.L. and even This Heat (and at times, even some of the casualness of the Fall) to make a very savvy and effective sound of their own. 
Hand numbered edition of 300 w/ silk screened covers and digital download coupon. Highly Recommended.

The tracks that lead to DFA falling in love with the Toss! Originally released as a cassette tape, now on one-side 12" format from Massachusetts' lovely Feeding Tube Records. Their words below - but please consider this very highly recommended.

"Vinylization of a recent Infinity Cat cassette, 367 Equalizer is a one-sided slab of belligerent art damage. The feel of this session is more tempered than that of their wigglesome debut LP, Jeffrey Johnson (as well as their second LP, which shall go nameless). The discordian elements of post-no-wave edge and Brooklyn basement glue party remain, but some of the looser jags have been hauled in and buffed like a fine pair of loafers. This is still definitely the sound of young people, but not in a way that grates on my old man’s sensibilities.

One of my favorite prog albums was recorded by Pete Brown’s band, Piblotko, and it’s called Things May Come and Things May Go, But the Art School Dance Goes On Forever. The sentiment expressed by that title inhabits the music here. It acknowledges a variety of parallel continua, while adding a fresh layer of creative loam that will surely be plundered by subsequent generations of brats. It’s an endless worm of processing and renewal, and only time will tell if this Boston quintet ultimately manages to survive the rigors of the eat-and-be-eaten dictates of the form, but this is a damn good effort. It will be sure to please those amongst us who are still young in tongue, even as we become long in tooth. – Byron Coley, 2014"

2. Robert Hood – The Bond We Formed (Slam’s S25 Retro Fit Remix)
3. Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom – Relevee (Carl Craig Remix/Slam Rework)

Slam have remixed Robert Hood and Carl Craig For Soma Records 500th release.

Soma500 is a very special release that sees label heads Slam visit two memorable tracks for them over this past anniversary year. The duo of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle rework Robert Hoods, “The Bond We Formed” - taken exclusively from the Soma25 compilation and a track that has featured highly in countless sets, a unique Slam rework of Carl Craig’s interpretation of Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom’s, Relevee.

One of the most sought after tracks from this year’s Soma25 compilation, Robert Hood’s jacked up ‘The Bond We Formed’ is given two unique remixes from Slam. The first remix brings elements of Hood’s original drum workout together with Slam’s spacial sequences. The second remix sees the pair go retro with an homage to the minimal master, utilising proper 90s tripped out tonality.
The B-side brings together the minds of Detroit’s Carl Craig and Slam as the Glaswegian pair rework Carl’s remix into a full on Techno anthem. The instantly recognisable synth work plays the major part with thunderous percussive work helming the backbone of this monster as it swells to a rapturous crescendo.

Beautiful translucent tangerine vinyl 12", limited to 20 copies in the DFA store. 

Tracklist:

A1) Fine Time
A2) Don't Stop For Nothing
B1) Everybody Clap
B2) Panic In Fort Greene Park

Veteran NYC producer and DFA regular The Juan Maclean
 hops on the Razor-N-Tape records wagon for a rolling EP of drum-machine driven grooves for the Reserve sub-imprint. The record starts with the peak-time stomper Fine Time, building exquisite tension and release through looped and filtered samples, and then moves on to the boogie-infused swing of Don’t Stop For Nothing. Everybody Clap leads off side B with a soulful and string-laden vocal over a bouncing hi-hat-focused house arrangement, and the EP closes out on the dubbier tip with the eponymous Panic In Fort Greene Park, a synthy and smooth slow burner. All around beautifully produced and eminently playable, Señor MacLean has made himself a most welcome addition to the Razor-N-Tape family with this dynamic EP. (text provided via Razor-N-Tape)

Limbo extends his ouvre of layered, pitched, and all-out fucked sounds toward an easier place, a more familiar musical terrain. More fleshed out than his earlier work, Limbo’s six parts give it a capacious feel of action. Well organized and having an undeniable rhythm, the album is an excellent progression from the concepts explored within throughout his body of work.

*PLEASE NOTE all remaining copies are in great condition, but contain minor surface wear n tear from storage. 

Fulton's been pursuing BOOF on and off over the past 15 years, and the flower-themed project houses some of his prettiest work. His instrumental and production prowess has never been in question, but 
The Hydrangeas Whisper ups the bar, marrying dubby synths and free-flowing guitar improvisation, dipping and diving in and out of various genres. The Hydrangeas Whisper feels like a culmination of sorts, the best of a grip of albums Fulton's issued over the past decade. He's beat the house LP problem by making something that feels like a DJ set, with stylistic leaps and no breaks between tracks. In fact, his intricate sound seems natural for this format. In a climate where scores of anonymous producers are handing in equally indistinguishable tracks, Fulton's carving out his odd, incredibly personal path.
