AL-90 – CODE-915913

Fuselab, a label that is a home to OSOM favourites Galun and Ishome, seems to have rebranded itself. There is a new logo, website and apparently also a new musical direction. Fortunately – and most importantly – the change is not drastic as their releases still possess that appealing factor that have been making the previous ones particularly valuable and it is proved by the newest position in their catalogue which is a full-length album CODE-915913 by Russian artist AL-90.

The Murmansk-based musician debuted last year with an album for UK label Reckno in which he presented his interpretation of house music which is now known as so called post-house or tape-house. This fresh genre is characterized by deep and dreamy compositions with beats that are somehow slightly muted to create a peaceful atmosphere. Have a listen below!

Daze – Neuromance

You simply cannot go wrong with the music from Lobster Theremin’s catalogue. This London based label absolutely nailed it last year with a magnitude of fantastic techno stuff and it turns out that they are still pushing it forward in 2015. Their newest release is a title track Neuromance which is taken from the upcoming three-track EP by an Australian producer Daze who has already published some of his work via Lobster Theremin last summer. His fresh composition is a monumental over nine minutes long tune with pulsing bass and a dreamy melody in the background. We will have to wait till March to hear the rest of the EP but you can pre-order the vinyl right now.

Dany F – F

Cumbia, a characteristic music genre from Latin America countries, has been the source of inspiration for the modern electronic music artists which lead to the creation of the movement called digital cumbia. Tracks made in the spirit of this subgenre are usually joyful compositions that easily fill the dancefloors all around the world. No wonder – after all, this music can get the wildest South American fiestas going.

But it is not always like this. Sometimes, cumbia melodies are used to create more relaxing songs, in some cases possessing even deep house or techno elements. This is what Dany F, a young and talented Colombian producer, presents in his last year’s album F. The release is full of hypnotizing instrumental tracks which are enriched with tropical sounds and the typical cumbia rhythms. You will more than like it!

Cuzzy Q – Late Bloomer

I guess it is high time to present some decent rapping here, don’t you think? It will be brought to us by Cuzzy Q, a 19-year-old artist from Chicago, who among his hip hop peers has been the last one to publish a proper project – hence the title of the album is Late Bloomer. But I don’t see anything wrong in taking one’s time to hone his craft in order to eventually come up with something extraordinary. This is exactly what happened in the case of this American artist as Late Bloomer is full of potential that is ready to explode in the near future. And then, who knows, maybe the Q in Cuzzy Q will be as valuable as the one in Q-Tip’s nickname?

Argy & Mama – Dominonation

Although Dominonation is a first ever album by Argy & Mama, both members of this thrilling duo are far away from being newcomers to the music industry. A male part of the band is Argyris Theofilis, a Greek DJ and producer who, after moving to London in 2004, debuted with an EP exactly ten years ago and since then has risen to international fame with his releases being published by worthy labels like Cocoon or Permanent Vacation. His partner in crime is Simone Ogunbunmi, UK-native artist who is not just a vocalist but has also produced several tracks for the album. She happens to be mates with Kele Okereke and was opening for him during one of the tours. As Mama she has also contributed vocals for compositions from Tiefschwarz, Munk, Catz ‘n Dogz and more.

The pair met in Berlin and decided to join forces. The effects can be heard on Dominonation which has been released just last week on prestigious BPitch Control label. It is a collection of eleven tracks presenting different approaches at house music but all of them are at the highest possible level of quality which makes this album a truly enjoyable listen.
