Sishi Rosch was poised to be one of the breakthrough talents of 2011 and this LP goes a long way in cementing his reputation as a gifted producer. Tales Of A Sleazy Affair is hard to categorize. Composed while Rosch was living in Berlin, the album is a collection of diverse sounds that keeps things firmly in the sleazy, midtempo range that really shakes and pops like an old Seventies grind house flick. There are tracks for the headphone, the soul, and the dance floor that hang together well for a satisfying collection that sizzles with rich musical dialogue. Hints of Latin rhythms, Balearic excursions, downtempo head nodders, crisp electro beats, and lush deep house merge into a sounds that is uniquely Sishi’s.
Nayan Soukie and Fritz Windish are an intercity duo based in Berlin and Hamburg. They are deeply rooted in the north of Germany with strong ties to some of the best venues like Fusion Festival and Bachstelzen. In a short period of time the two have established their own sound, which surprises with a variety of styles between deep house productions on URSL and 200 Records or more functional tracks with a pop attitude on labels like “Time has Changed” and “Liebe Detail”. But you always have the signature of driving deepness, which works like a carpet under the feet and the long and psychedelic breaks make you shiver on the floor. Soukie & Windish are a sure shot for mature and dirty dancefloor, but they also like to play on virgin grounds in the beginning of the night.

Boston beat boi Tanner Ross is finally back, with another embodiment of his signature take on future EFUNK. Ranging from creamy nostalgic R&B featuring PillowTalk, Slow Hands and Jesse Rennix to tripped out weirdness in collaboration with Lonely C and 80s synthesis romance with Jules Born, the‘Straight To The Moon EP’ on Double Standard will take you from palm-fringed Miami sands to deep outer space.
