Artists & Title: Robert Hood – MOTOR: NightTime World 3 Label: Music Man Records Catalogue#: MMLP038 Date: Dec. 2012 Format: 3x 12″ LP, 180Gr. Vinyl Incl. CD Country: Belgium
Following recent Music Man cd’s from Petar Dundov and Marcel Dettmann, we now welcome one of Detroit’s finest, Robert Hood. After the legendary Nighttime World Volume 1 and Nighttime World Volume 2, we are proud to be able to present you the long awaited “Motor: Nighttime World 3” on Music Man!
With “Motor: Nighttime World 3” Robert Hood returns to the project he first started on Austria’s Cheap label back in 1995 and subsequently continued in 2000 on M-Plant. Fusing his trademark minimal techno into jazz inspired moods and inflections, Hood emerges from the smoke-lit shadows of a downbeat, but not beaten, Motor City metropolis. Inspired by Julien Temple’s documentary ‘Requiem For Detroit?’ Robert Hood examines the life, history and future of Detroit’s motor industry and its workforce, set against a backdrop of decay, despair, hope and re-birth.

Artists & Title:Various Artists – RGP EP Label:Te Iubesc Records Catalogue#:TIR002 Date:Dec. 2012 Format:12″ Vinyl Country:Ro
1. Alexander Einetter & Diogo Magalhaes – Distance without Diffrence
2. No Hype – Jocuri De Societate
3. Sepp – Traian 42
Credits: This second opus is first of all Te Iubesc Records’ confirmation of their desire to give a chance to young and raw talents to express themselves on vinyl, and therefore show the world who they are. But second of all, with this release TIR wanted to demonstrate that they are not “all about romanians” as they were criticized wrongly before. “Romania was just a path to greater music”, wherever it comes from.So unlike the first one, this edition is a Various Artists and features artists from 3 different countries, Romania, Portugal and Germany. RPG as standed in the name of the EP.It’s less dancefloor oriented, but the depth of those 3 tracks will surely make you travel if you hear it in a club or from your couch.The first track by Alexander Einetter (Germany) & Diogo Maghalaes (Portugal) is really dear to us as we invested ourselves 100% on it by recording vocals in a professional studio in Paris. But besides the special meaning that it has,this 15 min track is really well made,changing grooves, fine percussions and deep atmospheres will take you on a long distance journey,with no difference if you’re listenning to it at home laying down or in the middle of a crowd on a loud soundsystem.On the B side, both of the artists No Hype and Sepp are romanians and provide here subtle,minimalistic constant beats to which they add some of their magical inspirations.Jocuri de societate has an unusual construction as it’s made in a way that the whole track builds up to finally gently explode the last 3 minutes.No Hype, originally romanian but living in germany is under influence of both countries, and made from those a sound that is really his and no one else’s, deep and hypnotic.Whereas Sepp goes straight to the “groove” point with Traian 42,he takes you higher with that deep dark vocal on top of it and with his slapping claps and snares.Coming from the black sea coast, he’s now a well respected producer on the local scene,as lots of his productions have a big support from Arpiar!

Artists & Title:Little Hado – Untitled EP Label:Moscow Records Catalogue#:MOSCOW008 Date:Dec. 2012 Format:File, mp3 Country:London
A. Little Hado – Untitled
B. Little Hado – Untitled
Next up on Archie Hamilton and Alex Harris’ moscow records, Romanian DJ/Producer Little Hado drops the ‘Untitled’ EP.
An artist with a passion for sonic quality, Little Hado has built up his production prowess over the past few years with releases on SoundCrossing and Tzinah Records, many of which received notable praise from his fellow countrymen, Rarseh, Pedro and Rhadoo as well as some of his key influences, Zip, Margaret Dygas and a certain Ricardo Villalobos.
For his debut outing on the fledgling London imprint Hado drops two original cuts of of minimalesque deep house. Kicking off the EP ‘Untitled A’ explores an after-hours house aesthetic comprising of deep well placed percussion, sine bass and vox snippets that ebb and flow throughout with swing laced hats injecting energy into the groove.
On the flip ‘Untitled B’ is a percussive 9 minute work out that trips and tumbles throughout its course making for an infectiously wonky tool that will slot well into any discerning DJ set.Moscow Records deliver another well-crafted release from a rising minimal maestro, ‘Untitled’ EP is out late 2012.
