But I Really Love This One

I didn't buy Orbison's previous releases, but I really love this one. Jels definitely has 'it' : sweet melodies from what sounds like several different instruments (synth, organ, and piano sounds) driven forward with a booming kick and a tasteful vocal phrase. Is that clap from a real TR-808, a clone, or a sample...?

Marco Shuttle hits a grand slam with "The Vox Attitude". It was just repressed, so buy it immediately before it sells out again. 'Cause it will. The a-side /title track is such a gem. This will easily remain one of my favorite tracks of 2011.

Unknown Artists

Damn, how did I miss this one? Oh right. I don't live in Detroit and this was pressed in some micro-quantity. The DJ Genesis track Bipolar is my favorite on this Psychostasia compilation ep.

All the Demdike Stare releases are sick as fuck. Need to drop a hundo to get the first twelve? Do it. Their latest Liberation Through Hearing is more of the same: pure aural brilliance. Miles Whittaker (MLZ) and Sean Canty are producing gem after gem.
And triple-high-fives to Loop-o (Andreas at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin) for cutting another ace lacquer.

This Hurts

Delsin, damn reliable as usual, offers up this fine release by DJ Yoav B.
Higher Love will be caressed lovingly by my intoxicated fingers, swooning with uncompromising and--dare I say--incomparable desire to share This with the world.

A Sexual Position

Oh what, did the "Charlie Brown" sample throw you off? Fuck you. That's the best re-contextualization of a sample I've heard in a real long time.

Kris, this is genius.
Keep it coming.
Take your time.

(Kids, if you didn't understand the title reference, this is CAT: morris audio 69.)
(And Bitch, if you buy this I'll smack it out of your unworthy hands.)
P.S ~ Kris Wadsworth's remix of Jimmy Edgar's latest Hot, Raw, Sex is a sleazy electro house killer.
