1. EASTENDERZ | ENDZ012 - East End Dubs
Tech-house's own cockney rebel, East End Dubs, has been busy of late. His first missive of 2017 comes on psychedelically inclined "splatter" pattern vinyl, but doesn't stray far from his usual musical blueprint

4. VBX | VBX002 - Ferro
The development of the VBX platform has been in step with Ferro's coming of age as an artist. One almost cannot be mentioned without reference to the other.

Immerse yourself into Ferro's musical universe full of heady modulating sounds capes and shimmering percussion.
5. Raftaf Holland | RFTF 001 - St. Joseph
Raftaf Holland has launched with their first release coming from no other than Cologne’s St. Joseph. Listen to the 3 track EP and you will instantly feel St. Joseph’s personality and production expertise in each track with a sense of intoxicating hypnosis perhaps the unifying factor.

7. Minibar | MB043 - K.O.D (King Of Delays)

8. Unanim | UNN003 - Ion Ludwig
Unanim Records turns out to be the perfect match for Ion Ludwig's sound that refuses to confine itself under a specific genre. 2 tracks, each of them receiving a whole side of the record, as plenty of time and space to develop slowly. Designed for the very special dancefloor moments, Unanim's third release manages to capture Ion Ludwig's sound signature in its entire complexity.
9. Cabaret Recordings | CABARET012 - Spacetravel
Cabaret Recordings signs Spacetravel for Axiom EP. The four-track effort will be Luca Cara's first release on DJ Masda and So Inagawa's label. Axiom EP sees Cabaret move further into the electro-tinged sound.
