Stephen Brown – Mini Mood

Simple and beautiful dub techno gem from veteran Scottish producer Stephen Brown on Skudge’s descriptively but boringly named “Skudge Presents” label. Brown is (or should be) well known for his incognito trance inducing melodic-but-tough 90’s techno on iconic dutch label Djax-Up-Beats such as Status Bytes or First Snow,  and with this sterling release he’s shown that he’s stuck to his guns achieving the same moody melodic swing to his music but also moved and developed with the times progressing his style constantly and experimenting with other genres.

Monday Mind Molestin': TR//ER – UC

Beat that post weekend hangover with a cold turkey techno baseball bat to the brain in the form of TR\\ER’s UC, you certainly will see, see red when you hear this. The first release from the highly talented brothers that are Truss/MPIA3 and Tessella sees this off-yet-totally-on kilter acid techno antichrist to wax, from the aptly named “Brothers” label which features 4 artists per release with one track either side. With other heavyweight names on the roster such as AnD, Tom Dicicco and Perc this new label is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Pete Bradock – Path Of Most Resistance

Take it easy Tuesday with this laid back deep house soother from Parisian Pepe Bradock. A short and simple floating synth line carry the song through the flakey and numb percussion with a few chopped vocal samples thrown in to give you something to point your fingers to as you dance before a further smooth synth-bleepy melody is introduced for a small crescendo. Sunday morning comedown house at its finest. Taken from the unusually but sense-makingly named Swimsuit Issue 1789 on Pepe’s own imprint “Atavisme”, which in English means Ativism (which essentially means a tendancy to revert to ancestral type, worth googling for some stimulating definitions!)

Let this incredibly simple yet beautiful tune melt your cares and stresses away as you flake out on another sunny day.
