This is the first proper release from SELEKTOR55 since his debut on Occult Research a few years ago. Here's the blurb:

A remarkable one-off tribute to the drummer behind the most sampled break of all time, Clyde Stubblefield, this 7” goes straight for the glitchy jugular, cutting up Stubblefield’s breaks from his time with James Brown into a blizzard of rhythmically complex, tightly programmed IDM, underpinned by deep, dark sub-bass.

Stubblefield passed away in 2017, but his legacy lives on through numerous tracks that sampled his work across genres like hip hop, jungle, and, well, more or less every other genre. Most were uncredited and he wasn’t paid for his contributions.

German artist SELEKTOR55 wanted to pay tribute to Stubblefield in the most respectful way possible, and what better than a 7” created to reproduce the look and feel of a 1970s funk 45?

For Clyde’s four tracks bleed into each other, the intricate breaks and beats almost jumping off the needle. Crucially, as experimental as this is, SELEKTOR55 retains the funk, giving Stubblefield a fitting tribute from an IDM master.

This is a vinyl-only release. 155 hand-stamped and hand-numbered copies. There will be no digital (yes, I realise that will annoy some of you, but it's what SELEKTOR55 wanted and it suits the project).

Order via https://gatedrecordings.bandcamp.com from Sept. 4

Cool, I enjoyed the release on Occult Research!
"There will be no digital" ... argh why SELEKTOR55 😢

Because the project is a tribute to a classic funk drummer and is a homage to the 45 format most of his music was released on first.

      Our latest cassette release is from another new artist, pulling together 15 tracks produced between 2005 and 2020. We were sent well over 70 demos and whittled them down to these tracks, so I expect you will hear more from him in the future. Just released in digi and limited cassette on Bandcamp only:

      OK so I might as well post this here, some of you might dig it. It's pretty Balearic so not the sort of thing that's usually posted, but then again it's all quite varied. Here's the blurb:
      Like a warm breeze drifting in over the sea to a white isle, Mazzo's six-track EP has summer written all over it.
      Gentle Winds is an apt title for the range of clearly Balearic-influenced tracks here, taking in hands-in-the-air piano house on Baby I Let You A Bath In, 80s-style hot-funk electro on Blue Field, blissed-out ambient on Cosmic Kiss, and sun-kissed conga-led downtempo on Natural Living.
      Across the EP Berlin-based producer Mazzo keeps the atmosphere sweet, smooth, and oh-so-hot. Perfect for the days we all wish would return: beach-bound, bar-side, and vibe-soaked.
