Five Things for Friday

Next five things for Friday and this time thanks to the new Juno Player we have added some samples of the tracks below.

1. South Rakkas Crew : Mad Again Remixes EP - 12" : Mad Decent
The South Rakkas Crew return on the US Mad Decent label with a whole host of mixes of Mad Again. On remix duties are Jokers of the scene, Boy 8 Bit, Drop The Lime and our fave remix Fake Blood.

2. Les Edits Du Golem : Volume 4
Great two tracker and the latest in the Les Golem disco edits series.

3. Kluster : Admira CD : Important Records
Recorded in 1971, 'Admira' is sourced from the original master just discovered by Kluster member, and Tangerine Dream engineer, Klaus Freudigman. Amazing stuff, admittedly not for everyone, but for a recording from 1971 just goes to show how far ahead Kluster were in their collective thinking.

4. DHS : The House Of God Ortin Cam mix : Missile
The pure techno classic House Of God from DHS gets yet another remix, proving once again how important the record actually is. This time its Ortin Cam aka Tom Macoye giving the track a workover, thankfully keeping the twisted cymbol sounds, heavy stomping beats and eerie vocal sample. Personally no mix will ever be as essential as the original but this is still a fine addition.

5. LIQUID LIQUID - Slip In And Out Of Phenomenon
Liquid Liquid's first three, groundbreaking EPs re-released as part of this great retrospective on Domino, which also compiles a number of previously unreleased and live recordings. The sound of post punk NY and utterly essential
