    PLAzA - "PARTY GAMES" 12" EP

    by PLAzA


    Release Date : 1/6/15
    PLAzA is the sound of Johan Churchill, a vintage drum machine and synthesizer freak, churning out a hybrid of playful acid house, boogie-funk, and italo, and often pairing it with a fine wine. Armed with the Oberheim DX drum machine, a 707, 202, Prophet 600, OB-8, Roland jx-Sp, and countless others, PLAzA corralled and manipulated this arsenal of electronic friends to create the Party Games EP in his home studio, The Voyeur's Loft, in San Francisco. The EP additionally features Moon B handling remix duties on the track "Night Lines", taking the track to an extra "nocturnal" location.

    VIARE is a 12" compilation featuring 4 distinct tracks, each occupying their own wildly unique sub-genre of the house experience.

    "Virgo Cluster" by Jonas Reinhardt fuses elements of cosmic disco and krautrock into a live transcendental package, with amazing guitar work by Phil Manley (Trans Am/Life Coach), and a bonus remix by the Beat Broker (digital only). "Seven Miles Down" from London's Timothy J. Fairplay (The Asphodells) is a testament to Zombie Horror Cinema, featuring a pulsing dub-house beat that dives into cavernous sonic territory. "Guave" by PLAzA is a playful dancefloor workout, that evokes a slow acidic line and classic Chicago house elements. Lastly, "Back Outside" from Roche is druggy outsider house at its best, with an enormous subby bassline that complements a classic alien warehouse vibe.

    The Eastside Boogie EP is a 6 track 12"/digital release by DMX Krew. The release begins with the remix and original versions of the title track, "East Side Boogie". The original is pure electro-boogie; with its use of vintage drum machines, vocoder and synths, it could likely be mistaken as a lost 80s classic (in the vein of Formula V, Zapp, or Kleeer). The remix is an updated, more bass heavy take on the original, preserving the old school ethic, with some added new school flavor. "Surf Squad" departs into chilled out cosmic electro territory: a beachside anthem of the digital era. "Turing Test", is another instrumental electro jaunt, this one geared best toward the dance floor, with its deep punchy bass and stabbing synths. "No More Bad Dreams" is an alluringly haunted synthpop lullaby, a rarity in the electronic consciousness. "Mind Bombs" ends the outing with a slow pummeling of sub heavy bass and synth melody.

Terri Loewenthal's mysterious and seductive vocals are complemented by novel production from Dan Judd and the alluring guitar work of Michael Taras. Sleek and inviting, "Heaven" is laced with a romantic melancholy reminiscent of the classic disco and house eras. The "Heaven" 12" features remixes by Shock's friends: The Beat Broker, Hatchback, and Steve Moore (Lovelock/Zombi). These versions perfectly compliment the original and expand the music into complete universal harmony.

Tussle channels alien echo-chamber dub in their cosmic jam "Dusty Roads", and then fuses elements of Detroit techno, Chicago house, and warm organic bass into their incredible remix of Hand To Mouth!

    Affairs Online is the first compilation from Voltaire Records. Featuring producers from Stockholm, Tokyo, New York, and San Francisco, this album merges influences from around the globe to drop funky, prog-driven electro beats that lean left of the obvious.

    Mystery producer Erik Artur starts off the comp by warping all genres with his short radical piece Redla. Steve Moore’s (of Zombi) solo project LoveLock pays homage to classic synthesizer disco on Champagne. Always defying expectation, Tokyo's Narctrax brings an unexpected twist by combining prog-rock, electro and his own unique melodic cues with Unweave the Rainbow. Loose Shus pumps out the Juno bass lines, and then travels through wormholes of electronic space on Featurette. The very young and very talented Swedish producer Le Pimp offers BTTB, modern boogie electro that’s wise beyond its years.

    Keep It Off The Record mixes live drums and vocoded vox with spacey, arpeggiated dance rhythms and funk-laden bass lines. Publicist's one man band is the analog answer to a spectrum of 70s kraut-rockers, DJs, dancers, and party people.

    Chautauqua's self-titled first EP is a collaboration between Loose Shus and Voltaire Label Head Randy Ellis.

Following up is Suspended Animation, an upbeat take on italian horror themes. Next, Ascension shifts the gears even lower and glides your favorite chilled beverage away on a crystal-platter to an afterlife of Shoegaze and Dub. Lastly, Matterhorn knots together a mystic Shayman's altered interpretation of modern acidic-electro.
