Back with his second EP on Truesoul after his impressive Kilimanjaro EP, dubspeeka has tossed out more attitude with his new Noise EP. Keeping in the similar dubspeeka trend, his Noise EP is dark and moody with interesting twists and turns to give this serious character. From the distorted Drums of ‘Noise’ to the melodic synth line of ‘Usk’ dubspeeka has delivered an outstanding piece of work that should be commended with the highest honour. The preciseness of his synths and vocal swirls separate this from other projects and shows the class and enigma that dubspeeka is capable of.

Truesoul Records are proud to announce the release of ‘Let Your Soul Outside’, the debut album from Reset Robot in April 2014.

Behind the Reset Robot project is Dave Robertson, a producer who has released standout singles on labels like Dogmatik, Intacto and Adam Beyer’s Truesoul imprint over the past 5 years. Now he steps up with his debut album, the stunning ‘Let Your Soul Outside’.

The LP was written at Reset Robot’s home studio in Portsmouth and is an album of fascinating textures inspired by “all the music I listen to and love!” says the producer himself. “I’ve wanted to do this for a long time and all of a sudden I had 8 or 9 tracks together which were a little bit different. I added a few more and asked a close friend, Tom Powell from Mister Woo, to add vocals to a couple of them and it was ready.”

The result is a full length that touches on many different moods and emotions, starting with the melodically soothing tech funk of ‘Guitar Man’. Tracks like ‘Little Alice’ then pick up the momentum thanks to slick beats and crisp percussion and ‘Sizzler’ introduces a soulful vocal element over more tortured sounding, synth-laden grooves.

It’s not all full on dancefloor material though, with tracks like ‘Desi Beats’ it allows you a little time to breath thanks to their more widescreen and laidback vibe, whilst ‘Sausage’ strikes a truly emotive pose that has your thoughts turning inwards.

With this album Reset Robot proves both his range and his dexterity – no two tracks sound the same, and instead the Portsmouth producer explores every nook and cranny with a fine attention to detail that really makes the whole thing sing. ‘Let Your Soul Outside’ is a stellar achievement.

Will Ward is a talent that is yet to be unleashed to the world in full. Making a huge return to Audio Doughnuts with the deep, techno-laden Chorus Memory EP, we present to you Temperatures. Taken from the EP, Temperatures is truly welcomed round-off to what we can only describe as solid foundations for a prosperous future. Press play, the temperature’s hot.

If you’ve spent some time of the dancefloors of London clubs over the past five years, you should be more than familiar with the refined selecting skills of Steve Braiden. Schooled in the art of DJing on the airwaves of radio stations with a succession of regular slots on Sub FM, Rinse and now NTS, there’s a sense of expectation that comes with a new studio mix from Steve Braiden which tend to surface once a year and cause all manner of frantic Discogs purchases soon after.
A graduate of the 2010 London edition of Red Bull Music Academy, Braiden has gradually added producer to his CV, which also includes being a highly decorated photographer - check out his work on his freshly designed website. Braiden’s maiden 12” release was of course The Alps, issued on Joy Orbison’s shortlived Doldrums label back in late 2010 replete with a Kassem Mosse remix. A self-confessed perfectionist streak has ensured the minimum amount of subsequent material has been of the optimum club-focused quality, be it the Belfry Tower 12” for Rush Hour or remixes of Jacques Greene and SBTRKT.

Braiden recently decamped to Berlin and it seems the change of pace has had a positive impact on his studio time with his seventy five minute mix for our podcast series debuting a brand new production in the shape of “Apex of the Sun’s Way”. Slipped in towards the end, the track sounds right at home wedged between Marco Shuttle’s classic “The Vox Attitude” and a cut from Kassem Mosse’s recent album. We’ve had this mix on the office stereo for several weeks now and it’s likely to remain in rotation for the forseeable future! Braiden was kind enough to answer some questions on Berlin, beetroot salad, Kassem Mosse and more - you can read that here: http://bit.ly/1f2EoxL

Earlier this year, Scuba (a.k.a. Paul Rose) announced that he would soon be launching Phenix, a three-part series of EPs. The first installment was released last week, and although the EP was teased ahead of time by a tantalizingly brief mini-mix, the Hotflush boss has chosen to follow the record up in a more proper fashion by putting together the first chapter of what will apparently be a Phenix podcast series. The 70-plus-minute mix, which can be streamed and downloaded below, includes all four tunes from Phenix 1, but also includes selections from Boddika & Joy Orbison, South London Ordnance, Radioslave, Recondite, Paul Woolford, and others. There’s no word yet when the second Phenix EP will appear, but this podcast should help to tide over Scuba fans in the meantime. 01. Scuba - Throb
02. Divvorce - Roquentin’s Release
03. Boddika & Joy Orbison - In Here

It’s not often that an artist makes as big an impact with a debut release as Celestial Trax has with ‘Paroxysm’. The six-track EP sees the New York-based artist land alongside the likes of Visionist and Kingdom as someone who makes undefinable electronic music that’s laced with sub bass.
