Dam Good

Finally made my first trip to ADE and i’m now kicking myself as to why it hadn’t happened much sooner. Such a great city with an abundance of line ups every single night! As a lot of my favourite electronics and repress action seems to be coming from the Dutch these days, one thing I was keen to make happen was hunting for records. Top of the list was Rush Hour and I couldn’t believe my luck when a daytime thing i’d been invited along to had a pop up store from Clone in Rotterdam nestled in the corner.

Here are a few of things I scooped…

Two of my all time favs, sleazed out electro and acid in one.

Had been meaning to pick this up for a while (Larry Heard in Kraftwerk mode), but was building up to the £30 price tag. So jumped at the decently priced red vinyl repress, cheers Clone.

Delroy Edwards with a proper cut and paste choppy sampled club bomb, the kind of thing I love to pick up on vinyl because like Soundstream et al these records remain timeless.

Great deeper house thing on a weird little imprint out of Greece I wasn’t aware of, called the “Ethos Series”.

Again something i’d been meaning to pick up for a while was the great Muscle Up compilation by Patrick Cowley. Compiled from the era when Cowley was creating porn soundtracks (hence the name), packaged up & remastered etc by Dark Entries. A proper trip from start to finish!
