Vakum Records, 2017
VKM005

I tried making house music once like 6-7 years ago and failed miserably, then I decided to become a listener. When I was growing up most of the musicians I knew had a hard time coping with electronic music. They used to say that it was easy to make and that anybody could do it because it was practically made by the computer. Well, tough shit, it isn’t. I do agree that electronic music is not for everyone but I always refused to consider it “mall boring music”.

House has been an up and coming genre for decades. Small labels from all over the world release hundreds of releases a year and it’s impossible to keep up. Vakum is another label in the mix. They have been active for a couple of years releasing small compilations of house and acid tracks that are primal and essential. House music is being associated again with underground parties and after-hours nightclubs.

FXHE, 2017
AOS(696)

We should held Omar S accountable for all of the times he’s delivered perfect Detroit house and techno anthems that turn into instant classics.

Apparently this 12″ is almost sold out everywhere and with reason because it is a hit-after-hit kind of thing; especially «Hell On Earth» or “life after you turn 20”.

Berceuse Heroique, 2017
BH036

Berceuse Heroique has released a ton of strong music in the past three or so years and I’m always keeping an eye out for their stuff. It’s kind of weak that they usually release their music exclusively on wax and they leave the digital hoarders out to dry. Whatever.

Black Merlin just put out an intense piece of dark ambient that I’ll definitely listen during the next months. Four deep tracks on a single 12″ that certainly start to define one of my favourite genres. The title track made me anxious, though. He has also released a bunch of stuff before ranging from techno, deep house, disco(?), etc.
