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!

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.

Rawaat – Day Laborer EP

We do things in our lives that do not make us happy and they consume so much time that there is nothing left for what we would like to do. That is what has been happening to me throughout the last year but fortunately I still manage to listen to a lot of music, although not necessarily being able to find time to write about it. Anyway, OSOM is back.

And there is a very good reason to write again as young and mysterious Detroit producer and head of Crisis Urbana imprint Rawaat has released his first EP for Lobster Theremin just few weeks ago. It is called Day Laborer and will take on a journey from the dreamy ambient opener track to the excellent housey remix of the title track made by Huerco S. Hypnotizing stuff!

Golden Features – Golden Features EP

No one knows who exactly Golden Features is but once the self-titled debut EP from this Australian project has been published few days ago it is impossible to forget this name. The absolute highlight of the release is an opening track called Tell Me which kicks off with a rather delicate house beat accompanied by a female vocal (Pnau’s Embrace, anyone?) but then a heavy drop comes out of nowhere and you immediately get hooked on Golden Features’ style. All the other songs on the EP also bring a decent sound so the thing that you should do right now is head to GF’s facebook page and get it for free. And just one more fact for you: the aforementioned vocal on Tell Me belongs to none other than Nicole Millar, a girl who we featured in our Australian New Pop mini-series (very mini, to be honest).

Ben Pearce – Lego EP

After the success of his excellent song What I Might DoBen Pearce comes back with a new EP called Lego. The release consists of three smashing tracks which may not be as straightforwardly catchy as the aforementioned single but club DJs all around the world will welcome them with excitement – where else could they find such good dancefloor fillers?
