Nutown Project and Katou - Petite Chose

Einmaleins continues to rule the world of bonkers door-slamming minimal house, and here we have two more stuttering jacking bangers which should be like fine grist to the mill for fans of this on-point label. “Poisson Davril” is the slightly more straightforward of the two, but nonetheless sounds like it’s being EQ’d live all the way through, and with a touch of electro in the bassline it doesn’t follow a predictable trajectory of any sort. “Petite Chose” works around a huge splashing snare drum, with the newly obligatory “tourettes-twitch” vocal snippet carving its way around it. It’s a little deeper than “Poisson” with its gloopy breakdown, but as is the norm with Einmaleins, even the deeper tunes are so utterly insane they’d still qualify for peaktime.

Italoboyz - The Titty Twister

Surely not a release you would pick up by name alone, or even after looking at the bright cartoon figures on their website, “The Titty Twister” could easily find its home in the record bag of Zip, Luciano, or Daniel Bell. “Bubble and Click” is exactly as advertised, offering a leaky faucet of minimal slurps and gulps, and a kick drum that leans into your moving hips ever so gently. “Birdman” on the flip is even better, riding so solemnly on a flattened ticking funk until the crisp winds of nature creep in halfway to loosen everybody up for the run-out groove. Recommended.
