    Heatsick Snakes & Ladders EP Sounds Of The Universe / Soul Jazz Records

    Trippy experimental club tracks from Steven Warwick aka Heatsick exclusive to our Sounds Of The Universe imprint. Limited to 300 copies - available only direct from our store or websites

    All artwork designed by Heatsick himself and includes 12 X 12 hand-screen printed numbered artwork.

    "Snakes & Ladders" - where Casio stabs and a barking bassline builds up to a stretching crescendo of white-noise percussion - a rhythm track from the Music Box heyday performed in striking Casio tones. 

    The ultimate night driving music  - "Time Smudge" is an interstellar journey through trippy space pads and grinding pedalled bass. 

    Heatsick explains:

    "Snakes & Ladders deals with game theory on the grid, slithering around precariously only to fall down a worm(snake?) hole on Time Smudge, reprogramming the ride"

    Good God Apocryphal HymnsNumero Group

    Throw those hands in the air - the third installment in Numero's series of otherworldly gospel, robed funk and spiritual soul, penned powerfully by the genre's lesser-known disciples has been delivered. 

    The same independently-financed D.I.Y sound heard on the brilliant "Personal Space" compilation rings throughout these gospel obscurities. Far from the traditional gospel stomping hand-clapping choirs, "Apocryphal Hymn" is packed with psychedelic guitars, heavenly harmonies, kooky electronic percussion and bleeding french horn.

    Gesloten Cirkel Hole: Transportation AAD RemixBerceuse Heroique

    S.O.T.U favs Gesloten Cirkel are back following their killer 12" on Murder Capitol and remix for Clone. Seven minute brooding bass stomper "Hole" puts the frighteners on the Aside. The flip offers a cruder alternative, a remix by Transportation AA (Boddika and DRKSTRL) - a coarsely constructed industrial bellyache, with a grizzly bottom end.

    Basic Soul Unit Motional Response Still Music

    Stuart Li's long awaited Basic Soul Unit debut LP on Jerome Derradji's Still Music!

    "Motional Response" sees Canadian BSU, skirting the line between deep dusty house and subliminal melodic techno. 

    Heavily armed with a plethora of analogue gear, BSU weaves intricate synth harmonies, over dreamy warm pads and raw acid basslines.  

    This is slick, pure sophistication; the crisp minimalism of A Made Up Sound, elements of Carl Craig and the raw, sometimes industrial jackin' vibe of classic Chicago like Larry Heard.

    Kassem Mosse / Simone WhiteThree VersionsHonest Jon's

    Simone White's folk induced stylings get a trio of stunning remixes courtesy of Kassem Mosse. 'Flowers In May' weighs in at over nine minutes as it is taken into an epic, textured, evocative place oozing lush electronics and soothing pads. 'In The Water Where The City Ends' is a haunting affair aided by clicky woodblock rhythms. 'Long Moon' rounds off the EP as a rich sonic tapestry which ambles along gently with downbeat jazz percussion. Top notch!

    RocketnumbernineLone Raver / Black and Blue / Steel DrummerSoul Jazz Records

    Their first single was released on Kieran Hebden (FOURTET)’s own label and Rocketnumbernine have been touring and performing alongside FOURTET since 2010.

    Rocketnumbernine have recently had live sessions on GILLES PETERSON's RADIO ONE show as well as performing at the Gilles Peterson WORLDWIDE Awards.

    The group have just returned from playing with RADIOHEAD in New York.

    Charles Bradley Victim Of Love Daptone

    The follow up to his acclaimed debut, "Victim Of Love" is a powerful, heartfelt love confessional from Charles Bradley on the ever-brillaint retro-soul label Daptone.

    There are some singers that when you hear them sing you actually feel the pain, Charles Bradley is one of them. Singing from a place that no doctor is yet to find - gritty almost screams powered by raw emotion.  Discovered by the Daptone crew whilst working as a James Brown tribute act, the vocal comparisons are obviously there, likely to make your hair stand up on its ends - beautiful psychedelic soul.

    Heatsick Convergence No 'label'

    Brimming with stimuli from these four minimalist drum machine workouts from Heatsick.

    Warming up with cute chords on "Benelux" before opening up in the 2nd half of the tune with grizzly bass, tight Chicago groove with mad-hatter style free jazz strings. Really good.  Druggy, dubby grooves on "Spacescape". The flip, "Convergence" has a melting pot to sounds, mashing up off-kilter african drumming, deep Chicago house and oddball synth action. Quirky DJ tool "The juggler" rounds things off.

    Gherkin Jerks 1990 EP Alleviated

    One of Larry Heard's most sought after releases!

     

    Originally recorded in 1989, this is the first time this has been available since 1990.

     

    Stylistically different to his Mr Fingers, Fingers Inc. and The It productions, Gherkin Jerks was an outlet for him to nature his more experimental and techno-orientated tracks.

     

    Cited as a major source of inspiration for Hieroglyphic Being and Theo Parrish - the influence of these tracks can still be felt today!

     

    These 6 tracks are all brilliant, find your favourite, ours happen to be the tribal extra terrestial vibe of  "Space Dance"  the cosmic thud of ''Saturn V''.   It may be an over-used word but trust us this is ESSENTIAL!
