A1. Roaring Twenties
A2. Roaring Twenties (Inigo Kennedy Remix)
B1. Lost Generation
B2. 19th Amendment
The Roaring Twenties is hopeful time for peace, a burgeoning economy, with progressive rights for all. A humble group of artists continues to create, share and evolve.
Roaring Twenties offers three mesmerizing rolling bass groove tracks by Deepak Sharma centered around being powerful and effective late-night DJ tools. Included is a potent, raw remix from Inigo Kennedy.
Side A begins with Roaring Twenties, its looping and hypnotic design will catch dancers immediately as they feel it through unyielding, timely percussive changes. Techno dignitary Inigo Kennedy offers an organic, stripped down and forceful remix that will push dancers through the night.
Side B begins with Lost Generation, its capacious feeling of clutching groove, polyrhythms and texture will instantly grip dancers. 19th Amendment is a juggernaut of strength and power. It’s groove intensifies as sinister percussion flows.
Following up his debut on the label, JC Laurent successfully returns with this memorbable four tracker, “Southside” EP. Using his influences from deep within Berlin and Detroit, he resumes where he left off, continually blurring the lines between techno and house with an uncanny ability to make it look easy.
Similar to 2013’s “From Nice to Berlin”, we have been fortunate to cast an extremely well respected, and in-demand producer to join forces on this release. Last time it was Fred P, and now UK’s Tom Dicicco provides a heady, seductive remix of the original. Tom has been busy releasing on labels such as Run Out Run, Stockholm LTD, Ear to Ground, Inner Surface and The Corner. Additionally, his globetrotting DJ skills have found him inside Berghain and also a standout appearance at Boiler Room in London. We love his work and glad he’s a part of it.
Hidden Recordings again focuses on quality over quantity with another masterfully curated vinyl. “Southside” EP looks to be the next classic in the already well stocked and established history of the imprint.
A1 Southside (Original) – Gritty bass and drums, slick percussion along with timely stabs make this a groovy Detroit delight.
A2 Southside (Tom Dicicco Remix) – A harder version of the original with a wonderful tempo surprise that has become a Tom Dicicco trademark. Fresh sounding, you feel his unique and modern sense on house and techno.
B1 Witness – Detroit infused love for filthy warehouses and underground clubs. Also try this during after-hours or in the daytime for daring DJs.
B2 Hoax – Relentless, pulsating techno. A wonderful aggressive compliment to the other deeper tracks.
