Title: Detroit Lost Tapes
Artist: Delano SMITH
Sushitech regular Delano Smith returns to the label with something rather special: a triple-vinyl collection of previously unheard tracks from his bulging archives. While there are a couple of alternative takes on previously released cuts ("Overseas (Version)" and "The Rock (Version)", the original versions of which sneaked out on Smith's Mixmode label back in the early 2000s), they're radically different enough to be considered fresh tracks. As you'd expect, the quality threshold is exceedingly high throughout, with the veteran producer delivering cuts that fuse the melodious and dreamy vibes of deep house with the rhythmic snap of Motor City techno. There's also a superb ambient diversion (the becalmed "Layover") and a dub-flecked trip into early morning deep space ("The 11th Hour").
A brand new compilation of rare unreleased jams from the expansive Detroit archive of the legend! Essential and must have release to any house / techno collection!
Title: Cel Mai Discret Dintre Pamanteni EP
Artist: DISCRET POPESCU
In some ways, Discret Popescu (AKA producer Alin Crihan) is not your average Romanian tech-house producer. On his 12" singles to date, he's managed to elevate the country's trademark sound to new levels of warmth and funkiness, primarily through the use of sounds and stylistic ticks more often found in deep house. He's at it again this time round, combining a typically liquid, locked-in groove with heavy bass and sneaky hip-hop samples on the spacey-but-funky "Usurel De Vara". Extended flipside cut "Tu Tonight" explores similar sonic territory, with looped riffs, spooky noises and short, sharp spoken word vocals perfectly complimenting a hypnotic, late night rhythm.
