Small Black – Lines Of Latitude (Dave Harrington Remix)

Factory Floor – How You Say (EP 2) [2014]

How You Say’ is the new single from Factory Floor. This is the second of two EPs and contains another fantastic set of new versions of the track, taken from their self-titled debut album.

Up first is a brand new version of the track, reworked by the band’s own Gabe Gurnsey with new percussion and a new mix. It is followed by a remix by Bookworms (L.I.E.S. / Confused House), which marks his return to DFA following an anxious remix of The Night Patrols by Larry Gus in 2013. It reinforces the deep and dark acidic sounds he has become so well known for, taking this hypnotic single and tweaking it out for maximum impact.

The package is completed with a faithful reinterpretation from Helena Hauff, who released her debut 12” single on Werkdiscs last year and quickly followed it up a new single under the alias Black Sites.

Jacques Greene – Feel What

Jacques Greene has shared another cut from his new Phantom Vibrate EP, celebrating its release today via LuckyMe. ‘Feel What’ is euphoric gospel house – the sample processed into a plate chorus that lifts a rhythm section of jacking hats and Prince-esque chords. It’s ascendant, reaching a hazey pinnacle before disappearing under sparkling synths. Modern gospel house without looking back. Greene’s latest production can be heard in full above.

Video: David Lynch – The Big Dream (Moby reversion featuring Mindy Jones)

Video: Camea – Moonwalk Away (Locked Groove Remix)

Since her first single "City Watch Over Me", Seattle-born and Berlin-based Camea is one of the most emerging artists on BPitch Control. After her dub/electronica contribution "Love On The Balcony" for last year’s "Where The Wind Blows" compilation, the latest "Neverwhere EP" encourages her sense of space-filling grooves and perfectly shaped melodies. Now appearing with four remixes, all interpreta- tions show and add new facets to "Neverwhere".

At the beginning, the Berlin-based Deadbeat provides "Black Sparrow" with a few sinister sounds- capes that wins in emerging from the background — despite the rudimentary acid hints. The straight rhythm sparked a dynamic aura that consists of both, shy chords and almost inter terrestrial sounds — a dub-infected fibrillation with minimal spleen. 
Camea herself shorten up the length of her own track "Neverwhere" without reducing the sex appeal of bass and groove. Her emotional DJ tool version let the love for melody-driven tech house remain — a jewel for the first rays of sunshine after a long night. 
Following some excellent releases on Hotflush Recordings, the Belgian Locked Groove not only loop Camea’s voice for his version of "Moon Walk Away", but also let the 303 make some sweet- talking circles. The acid spirals only deceive the muscle play, while the strings add some reverent grace to this piece. 
Finally Lee Jones radiates a profound magic that emphasizes the benefits of "Dream Of You". While a corrugated iron bass line enters into a dialogue with the illustrious semi- bleep-driven accents, the naturalistic setting takes us into a deep house meditation that embodies one thing for sure: sunken comfort.

Video: DAMH – Black Night

DAMH, the new project from two familiar faces straight out of the ever-burgeoning neo-romantic dance underground – Ada & David Hasert, have just shared the official video for "Black Night", the title track from their recent EP.

Baths – Ocean Death

Baths a.k.a. Will Wiesenfeld will release his Ocean Death EP via Anticon on May 6. Think of this new EP, as a companion piece—the Dia De Los Muertos to Obsidian’s Halloween. It’s title and the eponymous opening track existed before a single note of 2010’s Cerulean had been recorded. Darker in tone, they were always targeted for a sophomore album, but wound up a different cut of gem. You can stream the record’s title track in the player above.
