toucan sounds welcomes Felipe Gordon for ‘The Warehouse Beast’, a timeless house record and a tripped-out remix from Chicago mainstay Glenn Underground

Felipe Gordon’s low-slung and funky title track ‘The Warehouse Beast’ kicks off with deep drums and playful chords. It’s a nice loose-limbed cut infused with jazzy melodies and muffled vocals that spread warmth. It’s an irresistible groove that shows off Gordon’s ability to tap into truly emotive feelings. His brilliant ‘It’s Over (Drive My Car)’ picks up the pace but stays low and deep, its smeared chords like rays of fading sun while its elastic bassline roams free down low.

Glenn Underground is a house pioneer. His jazzy style and complex grooves have defined a uniquely deep and musical take on the genre over the last 25+ years. He remixes ‘The Warehouse Beast’ with his usual style – dreamy and cosmic chords, atmospheric samples and an introspective mood that is full of beauty.

Felipe Gordon is a producer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ and label head who recently founded Wide Awake. He fuses everything from jazz motifs to lush piano and acid bass into his house cuts on the likes of Shall Not Fade, Toy Tonics, Clone Royal Oak and Razor-N-Tape..

Following the relaunch of her label Twirl alongside Shaun J. Wright, Alinka now brings her brand new EP ‘I’m Your Ghost’ to Radio Slave‘s Rekids. Having made frequent appearances within its catalogue, her ‘I’m Your Ghost’ EP sees the Ukranian-born, Chicago-raised and Berlin-residing producer return with four eclectic and club-orientated house tracks. These will sit amongst her previous releases on Permanent Vacation, Needwant, HE.SHE.THEY and Crosstown Rebels.

“This EP is a dedication to Chicago, and all the “teachers” that made me fall in love with House Music. They’re tracks for the dance floor. I wrote them for the people who are too busy dancing to stare at the DJ.” Alinka

‘Teachers’ is the first cut presented on ‘I’m Your Ghost’ with its sharp percussive layers building towards the well-honed grooves in its composition. Title-track ‘I’m Your Ghost’ punches through next with weighty, wobbling subs placed against a catchy lead. ‘I Still Believe’ is featured with rising chord progressions and pounding kicks as ‘909 Lives’ draws the EP to a close with an intricate mix of synths and striding drum work, paying homage to its title. It’s a package highlighting why Alinka is on an unstoppable rise, with support from some of the biggest names across house music.



Markus Eden ‘Dub Siren EP’

Artist: Markus Eden
Title: Dub Siren EP
Label: Creche Records
Cat. #: CRE005
Format: Digital
Release Date: 8th September 2023
1. Dub Siren
2. Artemis
3. Long Distance

Markus Eden brings a cross-section of fresh house sounds on the fifth EP from the ever more vital Creche Records.

Eden hails from Cyprus and has been deep in the music world for many years. Along the way, he’s done it all from early hardcore and breakbeat to jungle and drum & bass, 2-step and house. He has lived across Europe and held several residencies while nowadays he is one of the scene-leaders back in Cyprus. Following outings on the likes of Digital Delight and Sultry Vibes, he now makes his mark on London’s Creche Records.

Heavy opener ‘Dub Siren’ is rock solid, with coarse metallic hits and low-slung bass underneath the edgy sirens that ring out into the mix. It’s a dense and serious sound for sweaty floors. ‘Artemis’ then heads off to the cosmos with more silky and sci-fi synth lines and slinky drums. It’s a seductive track with a future-facing atmosphere and plenty of deft sound design. Last of all is ‘Long Distance’, a spaced-out house trip that rides on shuffling drums as melancholic chords bring deep feelings. It echoes the machine soul of Detroit’s finest and is a timeless tune from Eden.

This is a potent and club-ready EP full of irresistible house heat in all its many forms.



Maccari ‘Deep Convolution’

Artist: Maccari
Title: Deep Convolution
Label: Mind Medizin
Cat. #: MDZN015
Format: Digital
Release Date: 8th September 2023
01 Deep Convolution
02 Resurgence
03 Deep Convolution (Blasha & Allatt Remix)

Lady Tazz’s vital Mind Medizin label heads to Brazil and the talents of Maccari for this new EP, which also comes with a remix from the UK duo Blasha & Allatt.

Arthur Maccari is a fast-rising new school talent who has released on Liberta Records, Ovum Records and many more. His uncompromising style has taken him onto the international stage, and now he is making another big step up on the increasingly high-profile Mind Medizin.

The excellent EP opens with ‘Deep Convolution’, a tightly woven and heavily percussive groove with fluttering toms and glitchy claps peeling off the slick, high-speed groove. It’s perfectly linear and detailed with edgy synth motifs that bring an alluring atmosphere. Maccari shows another side to his sound on ‘Resurgence’, a more roughed-up bleep-techno monster. The drums never quit, and the synths grow ever more manic as dark voices and thumping drums constantly turn up the pressure.

Remixers Blasha & Allatt are co-founders and residents of the influential Meat Free parties, famously wild techno raves. Their sounds draw from that energy, as shown here when they flip ‘Deep Convolution’ into a more loose and futuristic techno soundscape. It has molten future synths and a jumble of restless percussion that cannot fail to loosen up the floor and lock it in for takeoff.

Maccari’s ‘Deep Convolution’ is another dark and seductive techno EP from the always kinky Mind Medizin crew.

Francis Harris and Anthony Collins continue their musical journey with the publication of ‘Understanding’ EP. Hosted by the great label Scissor and Thread, we cannot notice the meaningful title that prelude to the sonorities shared by the artists, a kind of music which goes deep and introspective. While the drums and the bassline lay smoothly, the synths or pads gently caress them, gifting the listener a sense of shelter and protection. Although the mood aroused seems to fit like a sartorial work, that’s expressed in a calm style and this feature helps to welcome the songs into ourselves.

Subjoi returns on Lost Palms with his wavy and airy musical behaviour. The five songs put into ‘Rotary EP’ immediately trigger the attention: while conveying seriousness and elegance, the whole sound abstracts into a neverending and carefree mood, a great result get without adopting the traditional four to the floor drum patterns. On the A side the inner tracks ‘No More’ and ‘Rotary’ simply represent the best EP songs, them are expressed in a lofty style, often to the point of being contemplative. On the flip we can find also some inspiring typical UK influences like drum n bass in ‘Parsec’ and garage/2 step in ‘Carey Street’.
