Unreleased early JUKE tracks on this classic Chicago label. Real deal & heavyweight snap on this stuff. TIP!

This is how it all went down. In 2006 Rockin' House was not releasing any records but, I still had my hand in looking for talent - just in case. That's when I met DJ Lil' Tal and convinced him to make some tracks. He is a prolific writer of Juke tracks and after several meetings he began to expand on tracks that he and I felt would work for Rockin House. Early in Rockin' House history I would take records to the local community college Radio Dance program at WKKC. There i met many of the same people where DJ Lil' Tal began his career. Many of those guys went on to shape the sound of South Side Juke.

These are the first of those recordings he made for Rockin' House and simply labelled DJ Lil Tal " Juke Tracks". I've re-mastered and arranged the release a number of times to really expose the unique style of Lil' Tal.

Why did i just release today? Well, the record business is a TOUGH business. I didn't feel the market was right for any new Rockin House material until now. So I just waited for our time and, our time is Now.

Music From Memory are excited to present the first compilation of works by British electronic pioneers MLO aka Peter Smith and Jon Tye. Titled ‘Oumuamua’ and second up in the Virtual Dreams series, the compilation is an in-depth artist focused release containing twelve thoughtfully selected tracks that touch on highlights from the duo’s discography as well as newly (re)discovered music drawn from a vast archive of unreleased pieces, sketches and extended jams recorded between 1993-1995.MLO’s ambient explorations began when Pete and Jon, having first met in rival punk bands during the late ‘70s, found themselves with unlimited access to an incredibly well-equipped studio, having been hired to produce an Icelandic pop star’s record in the early ‘90s. Particularly charmed by the Korg PS 3300 and an Emulator 2, Smith and Tye were also deeply fascinated by outer space and set about developing a musical landscape informed by both this new state of the art musical equipment and what lay beyond the Earth’s limits. Painting with a palette informed by classical minimalism, new age and the works of Cluster & Eno; the duos primary colours were drones, sustained tones, washes, calming tides, gentle temple bells and soft angelic voices with flickering glimpses of percussion and drums that hinted at the possibilities of a dance floor.‘Oumuamua’ is a collection of music to get lost-in, a wander down the mazed, mirrored corridors of the subconscious. Peaceful, flowing, fresh-water patterns, drawing the listener toward a mediative, inner space. Not strictly ambient, rather the music rests temporarily within the boundaries between drum ‘n’ bass, library music, soundtracks and Techno. Or how Jon Tye himself puts it: “It really feels like music from a different place, a different time, made by different people.”Artwork by Vica Pacheco, design by Steele Bonus, liner notes by Dr. Rob.
Returning with our first release of 2022, we are delighted to welcome Soreab to the label. 5 cuts bridging the gap between UK bass, European Techno and early IDM. As well as a weighty remix from the formidable Pugilist.
Tom Dissevelt - Fantasy In Orbit by We Are Busy Bodies
Two years have passed since their previous Inflict LP and we don’t really know how what recently happened impacted on the band’s mastermind Michael but what’s sure is that Veil Of Light are now a fully grown-up band.Landslide is their fifth full-length (and their third on Avant!) and it’s definitely their most elaborated album.Ten new songs, rather than the usual eight, with a perfect balance of Coldwave-inspired intimate atmosphere and synthpop catchy melodies. Musically speaking it’s still clear where the Swiss duo draws their influences from, right in between New Order’s moodiness and The Klinik trying one softer, less brutal approach to their Electro. But a new sense of privacy is reflected all through these new tracks, enhanced by lyrics now more personal than ever.The Prayer Wheel is a page torn out of a private diary, Love And Money is a mechanical mantra for a no-way-out situation; Suburban War is a confession of defeat whispered at night, No Return is the last dance before reaching the point of.This is the kind of record that takes its time, and takes its toll, we just need to sit down and listen because there’s much to discover.
Ethernal is Daydream’s sublabel focused on the micro side of house music with a more intimate approach. This fourth volume hosts a very promising duo: Submod. The two talents from Leipzig have produced three minimalistic tunes with deep solid grooves and raw classy sounds. To conclude the EP, the great Diego Krause offers an uplifting rolling remix.
