LWE Podcast 92: Iron Curtis

Jacob Korn, She EP

Uncanny Valley’s first solo release comes from label staple Jacob Korn and paints a more coherent picture than prior records.

Tom Demac, Indulge & Lunge

Mancunian house producer Tom Demac hasn’t exactly been on my top producers-to-watch list, but maybe that should change after his first solo release on liebe*detail.

Andre Lodemann, Don’t Panic

Andre Lodemann’s second EP for Room With A View emphasizes his faint allegiances to deep house with two unhurried slow-burners that forgo conventional “deepness” in favor of unfettered and highly modern textures.

Mano Le Tough, Baby, Let’s Love

With his Baby, Let’s Love 12″ Mano Le Tough furthers his reputation with mixes that cover the deep and techier ends of the house spectrum.

Various Artists, Halal Prepared Vol. 1

In Islamic parlance, food that’s been prepared in accordance with Sharia law is designated as halal, similar to the Jewish distinction of kosher foods. So by naming its seventh release Halal Prepared Vol.1 London-based Boe Recordings sends a strong signal regarding the level of respect it affords to house music’s underground fore-bearers and traditions. Yet the three tracks on offer here from KiNK, Iron Curtis and Ladzinski are reverent rather than than obedient — clearly influenced by seminal house releases but more than devotional works of blind faith. It’s likely the critical difference that could earn this EP a place in record buyers’ baskets while its strictly traditional peers huddle on the shelves.
