KiNK presents Home! This aptly titled EP is the debut release on the newborn label Sofia. Founded by Strahil Velchev and Konstantin Petrov, Sofia is not only the physical location where this music was made, the city where they met and developed as artists, but also a paradox that is reflected in the art and music that comes from the place.
September 13th sees the prolific British house and techno DJ/producer Mark Broom and Snatch! Records’ esteemed label boss Riva Starr combine to deliver their first collaborative single under the guise of Star B entitled Gotta Have You.
Harry Agius, aka Midland, is back on his own label Graded with his first music in three years. The Alchemy of Circumstance is a four-track EP that is described by the producer and DJ as “the sound of R2D2 having a meltdown in Ikea”.
Floorplan (Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric) are debuting on AUS Music next month with a brand new 10-track album called Supernatural, featuring the appropriately named Fiyaaaa!.
Innervisions released a four-track musical package curated by Dixon and titled Transmoderna, the same name that the artist gave to his concept of parties that is inspired by global phenomena and virtual reality.
You know what gravity is, right? That force that keeps our two feet, face, back, ass, ears, knees on the ground.
Rekids serves up more scintillating techno this autumn with scene mainstay Marco Faraone making his return. The Italian artist has long been releasing on the biggest labels of the day, whether that’s Drumcode and Ovum, or his own label UNCAGE.
The Vision arrive with their first original output, where the Bristol-Boston collab deliver a soulful dose of house goodness. The release from genre defying musician Ben Westbeech and crate digger royalty KON also features Ben’s long-time collaborator Andreya Triana, whose powerhouse vocals you may recognise from Breach’s Everything You Never Had (We Had It All).
Lilium is released a year on from DJ Seinfeld’s 2018 DJ KiCKS! entry, and is something of a curveball. As with all of Jakobsson’s music, it’s honest and emotive, but the sun kissed house and italo of Lilium and Lovejoy is full of happiness and optimism, in contrast to the normally melancholic mood of his productions.
