Alcis three part series titled Early Beginnings draws to a close and firmly cements the young Swiss producer as a House music star in the making. Alcis first ever demo was sent to Phil Weeks at the start of 2013, and so impressed was the Robsoul chief that he instantly signed all 10 tracks to the label. Alci, Robsoul and Phil Weeks are an ideal match, as this third installment shows once again, with his funky, looped, sample-based and heads-down jacking house beats aligning perfectly with both Phils and the labels philosophy and output. Its also clear to hear the influence of the classic French House sound & Robsouls interpretation of it in Alcis music. The first two volumes in the Early Beginnings series picked up support from Mosca (Radio 1 play), Darren Emerson, Roberto Rodriguez, Round Table Knights, Matthias Vogt, Dirty Channels, Catz N Dogz, Rolando, Hot Toddy and many more

Nail provides the lead track for FOF’s latest vinyl only excursion – originally produced in the same time period as the classic tracks on the ‘Ode Rammel’ reissue ep earlier in the year, ‘Glazed’ lay dormant on one of Nail’s DATs for many years before being rediscovered and given it’s first airing now on FOF. Chunky roughed up house beats are the order of the day here, a real peak time groove. New talent ‘Harry McCanna’, resident at London’s infamous ‘Undersound’ nights, debuts with ‘Act 1’, a beautifully subtle bassline driven groove that rises above the pack with it’s super warm pad lending the track a warm and fuzzy hypnotic edge. Romanian talent ‘Zece’ kicks off the flipside with the most contemporary offering; a breakbeat laden groove with a fx laden vocal snatch underpinned by that all important b-line whilst ‘Sonodab’ rounds things off with a beautifully deep and melodic slice of electro on ‘Brown Study’, the percussive elements giving rise to a hazy melodic pattern for those early hour excursions.

Roger Gerressen steps up to the plate for the next release on FOF’s vinyl only imprint – ‘Koshima’ kicks things off with an elongated deep & submerged slice of dubbed out techno while the ante is most definitely upped on the flipsides ‘Waka’; a shimmering groove with tripped out drums and blissful synth touches. ‘Rendang Dub’ plummets once more to the depths – reverbed kicks and claustrophobic bass lending the track a uniquely atmospheric edge.
