Cream Dream - Love Letter EP

Stumbled upon this young lad's Soundcloud just days ago, and was quite stunned. The quality of his work is one thing, but the quantity... dang. He doesn't just produce good stuff. He produces a lot of good stuff. His debut LP Love Letter has been out for a month now and is a free download over at his Bandcamp-page. A little lighter on the house but very heavy on the funk this is one you don't want to miss. If you're short on time be sure too don't leave this page until you listened to "Jungle Master" and "Hot". Also be sure to check out "Ooh Baby" featuring 12-3 pal Flubba.

Claude VonStroke - Hardfest Mix

Genious good guy bass-house don Claudy VonStrokez with a dope, dope, dope mix for Hardfest!

So worth your time!

Le Babar - On The Low EP

Belgian disco maestro Le Babar serves up an incredibly groovy two tracker + DJ Pha5e on remix duty. I can tell you that this release is just SOOOO Andy.

Free trivia:
If the sample on "Love Thang" sounds familiar, it's been previously sampled by Ian Pooley on his fantastic "Higgeldy Piggeldy". Originally it's from the disco song "Love Thang" by First Choice (and yeah, I did just now look that up, beacuse I ain't no disco savant).

One from the 12-3 vaults: Shigeru - Cloudy

New section everybody! Starting today, every monday we'll highlight a tune from the 12-3 back catalog. It's growing fast and chances are you might have missed some gems.

Let's go back to release no. 5, Shigeru's (Martin Berge) two tracker Cloudy/Sen Timma. Up to that point the releases had been, more or less, pretty straight forward house (well... more or less). Then this deep techno-house-whatever-behemoth comes along and *smack*. Heavy stuff.

Buy on:

Doomwork - Club Abduction

I had no idead that Doomwork had released an LP. Dang. And it's hot. Apart from the solid tech house bits (no surprise there), there are some down-tempo gems as well bordering the line between funk and italo. Jazzy, groovy and lot's of fun, this one!

Nowakowski - Mix for Roxy

Turns out I got a namesake living in Gothenburg (to be fair, Nowakowski is a pretty common polish surname), Martin Nowakowski. Or simply Nowakowski as it's the name he's used when releasing music. Anyway, the tracks he's put out are pretty darned solid, and here's a great mix he has just uploaded, for polish radio station Roxy.

Dark Sky - Ruk

Hot off the latest Modeselektor comp. comes this little gem by Dark Sky. Nice and raw techno.

As always, we're all about the good things - inviting you to follow our lead with three fresh house tracks: one pounding, one raw, one deep.

Leaving you with a promise that we'll keep working hard to provide you with the overwhelming feeling that the future might actually be really, really bright.

Orphans STHLM - God is an Accordion mix

Yet another old mix that I've now put up on our Mixcloud. This one's from 2009 and was a submission for a Let's Mix (remember when that page was a thing?) contest. We didn't win or anything but the mix turned out pretty good in the end.

Douglas Greed - I Like It When A Man Sings On A Track

Being a fan of tounge in cheek vocals on house tunes, this one is right up my alley. Why haven't I noticed it earlier? It's not like it's released on some obscure label. I'll have to tip my hat for Mr Laurent Garnier's tweet about it earlier this week.

// Kasp (Orphans)

El Mundo & Satori - We Can All Groove EP

The title track is a killer, but don't underestimate the rest of the release. Trance inducing "Trumpet Tool" is a wall of sound to smack your head against.

// Kasp (Orphans)

Maya Jane-Coles - Getting Freaky

Concidering how much I loved the Jackathon remixes that dropped earlier this year, and the fact that the always amazing Maya Jane-Coles provides a track like this, I guess you can figure out just how much I love this rendition of the series.

Prince Club & Poupon - Technique EP

Yes! Two of my absolute favs are back! Cheers to that! Prince Club and Poupon with a nice two tracker on Snatch - sounds fat and dance floor-ready, as always, and I'll be playing these a lot! Especially Technique!

Matthias Vogt - Wake Up Call (Ian Pooley Remix)

Nothing against the original, it's a dope track in it's own right. But the Ian Pooley mix really struck a chord with me. Nice.

Orphans STHLM - Brost (Am Nice To Her)(dj tool)

Time for a free track! That's right: it's the title track from our next release Brost EP. Actually it's little more than a dj tool. But whatever. Why isn't the title track on the EP? And why is it one of those awful parenthesis titles? Well because it's free and that means we get to call it whatever we want and we have a similar track on the release. Also, it's a little confusing which is fun.

Justice - New Lands (video)

Without a doubt, this is the coolest video I've seen in a long time. Beautiful cinematography and scenography that puts you in the right frame of mind; the bleak future outlook of 70:s/80:s sci-fi romps. The costumes, the sets, the plastic props, the vector computer graphics. It just has the right "feel", for a lack of a better word. Even the lens flares are spot on.

Every cynic knew that the world would be a dark place in the year of our lord 1997. Sports as we know them would replaced by violent spectacles to distract the growing population from everyday problems (some would probably argue that this is indeed the case today). And don't get me started on the penial system. Let's just say the streets of Manhattan aren't safe unless you're packing a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. But hey, over at MegaSuperCorp Inc. it's business as usual. Just don't ask what they put in those food cans.

The letterbox format is just icing on the cake and the Snake Plisken lookalike doesn't hurt either.

Sticky Stockholm - Free Tracks Volume 4

I'm back!

Been working with these tracks for a while, all basically started out as a main idea about a track concept and a voice sample I really wanted to work around. Took me a while to finish them all up, but i finally got around to do it last week.

So voila! Here's the end result, freshly mastered, free to download.

Monkey Safari - Hi Life (Ed Did It)

I'm sure this has allready reached you, the Monkey Safari opening track of Fusion 2012 is becoming a huge internet thingy, well deserved, it's a perfect outdoor dance track the two put together. One excellent house-tune!

The fact that they're sampling a magic Bon Iver-cover (original by Anais Mitchell) only makes it better of course. So if you haven't heard it yet. Listen to the track, enjoy their brilliant Fusion-set, and finally, listen to the fantastic Bon Iver-original/cover, and the sweet Anais Mitchell original, brilliant as well.

// Kasp (Orphans)

Homework - Conversation Piece EP

Great new stuff from 12-3 favourites Homework! Conversation Piece opens up with a title track full of keyboard madness and then gets down to serious business with "Ask Yourself". The tempo drops down somewhat in "Spinning Top" and then "Redondo Beach, CA" rounds of the EP.

Surkin & Todd Edwards - I Want You Back EP

Word about this release started to float around early this year when Surkin annonced he was going in to the studio with an, at the time undisclosed, personal idol of his. Some while later this secret person was revealed to be none other than Todd Edwards. So, here it is, their highly anticipated colab for SP:s crossover series. "I Want You Back" is maybe a little to mellow for my tastes but in the context of the EP it works great, between the jumpy "Mighty Love" and the chugging beats of "Your Way".
