A Madness
B Mind Bend

All the usual punchiness of a JT track with the bounce you’d expect from the early 00s (six years ago already!!). For me the kind of sound I associate with Tokyo. Dan Bell makes a guest vocal appearance on Mind Bend to support the US techno massive, fighting to not be forgotten after the European hijack at the start of the millennium.

A1 Headcase
A2 Disconnect (Edit)
B1 Digital/Divide

NovaMute pressing of Plastikman Disconnect. Short, sweet and to the point. Love the rolling bassline and the dark vocals. Headcase is more classic Richie, simple yet effective.

A1 Hermelin
B1 Willy Skipper
B2 Sleazy Bee

Another genius release from Playhouse, Isolée’s brand of click house at its finest. Love the beautiful monotony of the A-side, could listen on repeat for hours without getting bored and would probably hear something new every time round. Added bonus of artwork by Stefan Marx.

A1 Blood on my Hands (Ricardo Villalobos’ Apocalypso Now Mix) Part 1
B1 Blood on my Hands (Ricardo Villalobos’ Apocalypso Now Mix) Part 2

You’d be hard pressed to find anything deeper, darker or more sinister than Villalobos remixing Shackleton. Listen to this on a Funktion One at 10 am in the morning and you will realise that the brown note is much more than a theoretical frequency, it’s a way of life.

(http://www.discogs.com/Villalobos-Fizheuer-Zieheuer/release/1357876)

A1 Fizheuer Zieheuer Pt. 1
B1 Fizheuer Zieheuer Pt. 2

Can’t believe it’s already four years since this was released. Compulsory purchase. Twenty seven minutes and nine seconds of Ricardo taking the build up to the next level. Not to be played without the supervision of a qualified professional.
