Top Releases from June

Another month gone, another load of black plastic, shiny discs, and digital files for you to trawl through.


By Spotlight

An overwhelming task, even at the best of times, in the middle of summer people are busy, and have far better things to do than scour the usual sources to unearth individual highlights. As such we thought it best to run through some of the finer cuts to have dropped over June, so you don’t have to.

First up, beginning June 11th, we had the busiest seven days of them all, at least in terms of quality output anyway. The mighty Kompakt had a remix EP from Superpitcher’s 'Kilimanjaro' album slated to arrive, with 'Moon Fever' reworkings from Lawrence and Gluteus Maximus (Gus Gus) - all well worth a listen. Then we had the debut single from rising Brooklyn stars Walker & Royce too, which comes in the shape of 'You’re Not Welcome' on Crosstown Rebels.

We were also eagerly awaiting the next offering from Will Saul’s Simple Records, which was also out on the same day. Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman are Dusky, and their two tracks 'Henry 85' and 'No More' should be read as garage tipped house quality indeed. Early support from Loefah, Joy Orbison, Annie Mac, and Boddika, to name but a few, speaks volumes, with production duo Red D and San Soda getting in on the act with an FCL Weemix of lead tune 'Henry'.

Skip forward a week, or just under, and June 15th saw Chicago’s legendary Large Music do what it does best by putting out some classic four four grooves. Alex Neivel & DJ Schwa (Shades of Grey) present their 'Le Clan EP', and fans of soulful textures will be rather pleased. Meanwhile, more electronic, disco edged fare can be found on Soul Clap’s 'EFUNK: The Remixes', which follows the debut long-player from the pair (a former Spotlight Album of the Week), with re-imaginings from Slow Hands and Tanner Ross, No Regular Play, and Nitetime (AKA DJ Kon and The Whiskey Baron).

All of which brings us close enough to the end of the month, at which point (June 25th) British techno bastion Ben Sims delivered a fresh slice of driving, solid futurism for Theory Recordings. 'In The City' comes complete with two alternative versions, one from Ritzi Lee, and another from acclaimed studio hand Orlando Voorn, making for quite the no bullshit, raw, tough and straight up peak time smash. Highly recommended, as with everything else here, it’s a sure fire way to make sure you’ll be moving well into July.
