Seuil - Deep Hooks
A. Variations 07
B. Glue Eyes
Samples at myspace.com/lomidhighorganic
Release date: September 10, 2008.
Dunno about you, but I'm deffinetely looking forward to some rockin' house releases - hopefully. Lomidhigh Lmtd is all about good, quality releases (maybe except the very first release) - let's hope this label stays on the same track. Personally I'm really not a big fan of this house trend that has been going on lately. Within the last year or so I've heart soooo much "summer house" with a bit to much conga, trumphet or juicy fruit drinks samples..bahhh! Okay, don't generalize, Peter! But don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of house, but once in a while I'm shocked by the stuff out there. I hope and believe LMH Organic finds a nice balance between pure minimal and beach party house. Nevertheless this is one of Seuil's best releases so far.
Go to their myspace and see for yourself! And btw, check out the nice artwork - reminds me of good ol' Perlon.

“Microbiotic”, the first release of Dutch producer and dj Angelo D’onorio on 90wattsrecords is an explosive one! This release consists of two tracks: “Microbiotic” and “Catch the break” Angelo, one of the Dutch top DJs in the nineties, shows his skills here as an excellent producer.
Microbiotic is a dirty tech-house track with a hint of sleazy techno, pushing it to the max. Catch the break is a rolling tech-house track with typically “D’onorio Chicago influenced” funky electronic grooves.

Angelo D’onorio started in the early nineties spinning funky techno-house. Only four months after starting his dj career at the world famous Amsterdam-based iT, everybody knew his name and skills. He was invited to rock the dance floors of all the famous clubs in town and worked as a resident for Mazzo, Paradiso and the legendary RoXY. Two years later his name was listed among the top dj’s of the nation, and he was playing all over the country including festivals like Lowlands, Pink Pop, Mysteryland, etc. Since that time, Angelo has been rewarded with three Best Dutch Dj awards, and has become one of the most popular DJ/ Producers in the country. After releasing his underground hit “To The Floor” (supported by people like Carl Cox) Angelo travelled around the world doing gigs in Brazil, Spain, Argentina, Chile, South Korea, China, USA, Bulgaria, Russia, Israel, Prague, Macedonia, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, Croatia, Norway, Italy, Belgium and many more. Over the years, Angelo has played with many of the top names in the techno-house scene such as Derrick May, Kenny Larkin, Billy Nasty, Westbam, Mr. C., Laurent Garnier, Tom Middleton, Pepe Bradock Underworld, Ken Ishii, Slam dj’s, Funk d’void, Pure Science, System 7 , Prodigy (Pinkpop), Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Orbital (Lowlands). Angelo is recently a resident dj on sundays @ Club NL and releasing/ed music for 90wattsrecords, Kismet records, Serious Radio Recordings and 2DJs4Love.

Huge Hephner, co-owner of the 2-year-old Chicago label Siteholder Records, drops his full-lenght album "Nymphotech" August 15.
"I wanted to create a distinct style that combined the legendary sound of jackin' Chicago house with modern techno," explains Siteholder Records co-owner and world-renowned producer, Billy Dalessandro, when asked about his decision to create the Huge Hephner alias.
Huge Hephner, a name not easily forgotten, first gained notice in the electronic music world roughly a year ago, with "The Booty Drop" EP on Siteholder UnCut (Siteholder Records' digital sub-label). The release marked a clear departure from Dalessandro's traditional production style, implementing a distinguishable house vibe while still maintaining a forward-thinking techno feel.
Following the success of "The Booty Drop EP," Hephner took little time in preparing his first vinyl release for Siteholder, entitled the "Pimp Slappin'" EP. Building upon his prior success, the EP found its way into some of the world's top DJ's record bags. Up until this point, the individual behind the Hephner alias had remained a secret. However, following the critical acclaim of "Pimp Slappin'," it was only a matter of time until Hephner's true identity was revealed.
Merely one year later, Hephner ups the ante with the release of his debut album, entitled "Nymphotech." This full-length album marks the culmination of Hephner's young career with Siteholder Records - a label that techno legend Sven Vath claims is "putting Chicago back on the map."
Keeping today's volatile vinyl market in mind, Siteholder takes a unique release approach for their first full-length album. Instead of going the traditional double-pack route, "Nymphotech" will be released on vinyl via two separate three-track album samplers. The two remaining tracks will be available exclusively in digital format via Beatport. Those who purchase a digital copy of "Nymphotech" in its entirety will also get a free 30-minute live set by Hephner.
"After a successful digital EP and vinyl release, I really felt like it was time to put myself to the test by producing an entire album - the first I had ever done under an alias," Billy notes, "from the beginning I had always wanted to create a separate identity with an equally fruitful career to the one I've built under my given name... Huge Hephner has allowed me to do that and at a pace beyond anything I could have ever imagined!"
As Dalessandro prepares to hit the road in August for yet another European tour, Nymphotech is poised not only to ensure further recognition of the Huge Hephner name, but also push Siteholder Records into the few pockets of the planet it has yet to penetrate.
Release date: August 15.
