Hailing from Iran and currently based in the UK, Amirali is a classically trained pianist and singer-songwriter who has applied his talents to electronic music. His captivating vocals and thought-provoking lyrics addressing societal failures are nestled on a bed of analogue synths and rhythmic drum loops.

With a discography boasting releases on prestigious record labels such as Damian Lazarus’ Crosstown Rebels, Ellen Allien’s BPitch, and Eelke Kleijn’s DAYS like NIGHTS, Amirali is not only a versatile artist but also a captivating DJ and live performer who has graced the dance floors of Europe’s most esteemed nightclubs from Fabric to Panorama Bar.

Amirali’s innate ability to mesmerise an audience has also earned him a prestigious BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and he has enamoured mainstage crowds at festivals and underground events in far-flung countries ranging from China to Brazil.

“Whispers of Deceit” is built on a foundation of acidic bassline and robust percussion, while a dramatic sequence of samples bursts forth to create a trippy atmosphere full of anticipation. Rhythmic synth stabs and psychedelic guitar licks accompany vocals speaking of a failed society. The track’s rolling groove and jackin’ rhythms create a raw machine funk that’s perfect for the dance floor.

A1. Rhythm & Simplicity
A2. A New World To Forget
A3. Tape Jam Pt. 2
B1. 0221 (Serious Mix)
B2. Motion Anthem

Pre order link: https://aliberger.bandcamp.com/album/serious

Next on Scissors And Thread a brand new EP signed by Ali Berger, a dj and producer from the U.S.A., mostly known for his releases made under Spectral Sound and Sequencias labels. This brand new ‘Serious’ features five smooth and dreamy productions, which recall the 90s styles, when the first house music categorizations were born. Even if these tracks lack in terms of innovation or avant garde contaminations, as overall them appear interesting and minimalistic, arousing a tempting and laid back mood.

“This record collects tracks from the last three years, plus 0221 (Serious Mix) which is from 2018. There’s a full cross-section of production techniques represented here, from one-take jams to multi-tracked compositions, but through it all there’s a deep melancholy which (I hope) is tempered by enough groove to be uplifting. Maintaining emotional balance takes constant, caring attention; music is a part of that process for me and these tracks reflect that.”

Hailing from Michigan, USA, vinyl and techno label (MS) is the creation of Myles Sergé that usually focuses on his own original cuts, but has also featured quality remixes from Lee Holman and Rennie Foster.

‘The Replacements’ is a new VA release with four tracks by four different artists from Argentina, France, and America.

Gonzalo MD is from Buenos Aires and has well over 10 years of releases that includes Philippe Petit’s Knotweed and Decision Making Theory (DMT), Marco Lenzi’s Molecular, Bruno Ledesma’s Concepto Hipnotico and Retórica Records. “Aura Nova” has a stomping groove at its core, while combining with sweeping, spacey textures and rubbery stabs he creates a mesmerising slice of contemporary techno.

Philippe Petit calls Chamonix home, and the French maestro heads up Knotweed Records and Decision Making Theory (DMT) and has also appeared on Ben Sims’ Symbolism, Len Faki’s Figure, Slam’s Soma, Radio Slave’s RSPX amongst others. “Strange Luck” adds a deep and soulful take to the EP, using delicate delays on the lead and a warm, throbbing bassline to guide this classic Detroit-influenced jam.

(MS) label boss Myles Sergé arrives on the third track in style following appearances on labels like Zenker Brothers’ Ilian Tape, Dan Curtin’s Metamorphic, Dense & Pika’s Kneaded Pains, and Esther Duijn’s Another Earth, to name only a few. Title track “The Replacements” is a gritty, analogue-focused record full of jackin’ claps and lashing hi-hats that is instantly infectious.

Mike Derer is another exciting and experienced addition to the release’s roster, with over 20 years of industry knowhow from running an artist agency, hosting events and of course beat-making, his music can be found on his own Northern Parallels imprint and also remixing for the likes of A.Paul’s Naked Lunch. “Pecatonica” is a beautiful journey through sound design with round, modular notes and morphing textures surrounded by skittering percussion elements that demand attention.

When the rain gives its gift of thunder, it keeps falling on every part of my life
To make sure there’s no tear that could be falling from your eyes
When the sun rays they think of shining, they keep shining back in every single corner of my life
To make sure there’s no trouble, to make sure there’s no strife

When the rain gives its gift of thunder, it keeps falling on every part of my life
To make sure there’s no worry that would hold on to your life
When the sun rays they think of shining, they keep shining back in every single corner of my life
That’s the reason I am here and it’s the reason I’m alive

Wash away my fears
Dry up all my tears
Wash away my fears
Dry up all my tears
Wash away my fears
Dry up all my tears
Wash away my fears
Dry up all my tears

The rain keeps me smiling, baby
The rain washes my pain away
The rain keeps me smiling, baby
The rain warms me from day to day

The rain keeps me smiling, baby
The rain washes my pain away
The rain keeps me smiling, baby
The rain warms me from day to day

I am favored babe, by the sun and the rain.
I am favored babe, no tears will fall down in vain
I am favored baby, don’t fear no harm or no pain
I am favored babe, by the sun and the rain.
I am favored babe, no tears will fall down in vain
I am favored baby, don’t fear no harm or no pain

I am favored baby
I am favored babe, for the words that I say
You give me words, I deserve
I am favored baby
I am favored babe
