It's my birthday today so, as I wade through my new house, still knee-deep in boxes, I've fished out four more of the best.
Leaving Ground - Joel Mull (Lask)
I first heard this on Terry Francis' Essential Mix back in 1998. Joel Mull put this out on his own label. Sounded good then and still does now. Classic cold-weather techno from the frozen north.
Kungstradgarden - The Persuader (Svek)
More Swedish goodness, this time in the shape of a simple groove from The Persuader, aka Jesper Dahlback. From the 'Stockholm By Night' 12", and it feels like it. Excellent.
House Da Crowd (Movin')
& Back 2 Back - Discocaine (Zoom)
Two peerless releases by one-time London house terrorists Discocaine, made even better as a good mate, Hursty (Sloth), engineered them both. Very dubby, very heavy, both belters. Zoom in Camden was a good shop and holds fond memories for yours truly.
