LY 10 releases | LIQUID YOUTH

With August coming to its end, we reflect on this month’s favourites coming from Four Tet, Moscoman, Bicep, Konstantin Sibold, Adam Port, Tornado Wallace, Zombies In Miami, Permanent Vacation, ESP Institute, International Feel, Hivern Discs and Futureboogie Recordings.

Moscoman – Moments In Space (Original Mix) [Treisar]

Treisar returns with Moscoman‘s seventh outing in the 12 part series. Kicking off with ‘Some Of My Fears’, a piece of outer space hypnosis carried by a rolling percussion and bass combo that will keep feet firmly stomping across dancefloors. Reflecting the mood set on the A side, ‘Moments In Space’ sees Moscoman channel his Italo flair while reaching out for a rave indebted sonic palette. Final track ‘Chinchilla’ closes on delirious sounds and 8-bit melodies rubbing shoulders with a lovingly syncopated beat. Grab your copy here.


Red Axes – Sun My Sweet Sun (Konstantin Sibold Afro-Tech Mix) [Permanent Vacation]

While Red Axes‘ ode to the sun is still running strong one and a half years after its release, Permanent Vacation presents us the heavyweight remix package: German wunderkind Konstantin Sibold is hitchhiking the original into afro rave territories with voodoo percussions and a hauting bassline that will be hard to escape from. Fango continues his string of strong remixes as he turns the original into a rough beat version just to drop the melody in the break for maximum dancefloor mayhem. And last but not least the Axes themselves come up with a tropical house version that works any time any place. Grab your copy here.


Warp Factor 9 – The Atmospherian (Tornado Wallace Remix) [ESP Institute]

After three years of obstacles, ESP Institute has managed to revisit the originally 1993 self-released track ‘The Atmospherian’ — a celebration of a lost tune that originated, was re-discovered and re-imagined down under, but sits far left of center, and comes with this beautiful remix by fellow Aussie producer and prodigy Tornado Wallace. Grab your copy here.


Whirlpool Productions  From: Disco to: Disco (Adam Port Remix) [Universal]

When Whirlpool Productions released the original ‘From: Disco to: Disco’ 20 years ago, it took the international chats by storm. Now, two decades later, the classic gets revisit with reworks by Adam Port, Hot Chip and Tiefschwarz. The Keinemusik’s head honcho mixed Eric’s vocals with stretched Electro-House-Groove and Pitch-down-effects. Grab your copy here.


Black Spuma – Omre (Original Mix) [International Feel]

One year on since their last venture as Black Spuma on International Feel, Fabrizio Mammarella and Phillip Lauer are back with the insatiable Orme EP. Showcasing the pair at their best, this four tracker is where acid meets emotive melodies and shimmering Italo synths lines. In the words of Phillip Lauer it’s where “balearic vibes, acid love and a lost tape from 1991 merge into pure bliss!..” Grab your copy here.


Bicep – Glue (Original Mix) [Ninja Tune]

In front of their upcoming, self-titled debut album on Ninja Tune, the Bicep duo shares the evoking ‘Glue’. The single, taken from the forthcoming LP, is a gently layered slice of tranquil breakbeat better suited for sunrise comedowns than peak-hours mayhem. Grab your copy here.


Four Tet – SW9 9SL (Original Mix) [Text Records]

A week after his single ‘Planets’ hit the shelves, Four Tet released another one of his trademark diamonds. The moniker, well-known for being way ahead of the curve, shows his extraordinary talent once more on ‘SW9 9SL’ with an beautiful combination of mesmerizing percussion, stellar synths and a heavy hitting bassline. Grab your copy here.


Skream  Face Down In The Water (Original Mix) [Of Unsound Mind]

 A year has past, since UK producer Skream uploaded ‘Face Down In The Water’ to his Soundcloud page, only to quickly disappear again. Luckily, the melancholic heavy hitter with its driving percussion, is back by popular demand and got released via Of Unsound Mind, this month. Grab your copy here.


Orbe  Somebody Bring Me Here (Original Mix) [Hivern Discs]

Hivern Discs returns with a carefully crafted blend of creative expression by Orbe. The 6-track EP shows a different side of the Spanish imprint – where the other tracks contain a more direct approach, ‘Somebody Bring Me Here’ delves deep with its break-beat lay-out, underlining melody and surprising synth bursts. Grab your copy here.


Zombies In Miami – The Legends Of The Hidden Temple (Original Mix) [Futureboogie]

The Mexican duo, Zombies In Miami, have impressed for labels like Love On The Rocks and Correspondent over the years, and bring their own brand of spiritual dance to Futureboogie’s Summer Riot party. A collage of color erupts on ‘The Legends Of The Hidden Temple’, with sitars, guitars, vocals and synths all weaving their magic over a chugging house beat with a bubbling acid underbelly.
