WS015: Steve Cook – Notice Me EP w/ remixes from Pop District and Aimes

Steve Cook - Notice Me

After a killer remix for FLXXX’s ‘Zombie Land’ on WS013, Steve Cook is back on Wonder Stories with his own EP. The lead track ‘Notice Me’ is a drugged-out mid-tempo burner with tribal drums and cut up diva vocals. Accompanying ‘Notice Me’ is a pair of remixes, one from Toronto-based producer Pop District, and another from Wonder Stories label head Aimes. Rounding out the EP is another Steve Cook original ‘Drifted’ which is eager to offer up the dark and brooding side of Steve’s productions.

Now Catune is back with a couple of very solid releases from ‘Flying Men’, which consists of Japan based UK Balearic power house Max Essa and Italian legends Leo Mas and Fabrice.

AIMES – Dirtbox EP

Out today is a new EP from NYC’s AIMES on Mexico City based label Trafico Music. This EP shows a departure from AIMES usual, into a left-field house conglomerate with two original tracks designed for the weirder moments on the dance floor plus two stellar remixes from Mexico City’s Juan Soto (Electrique Music) and NYC’s Tunnel Signs (Have A Killer Time / Clouded Vision).

NYC meets Mexico City for stellar results. Listen and Download…

Perdido Key – Modificación EP

Out today is a new EP from Wonder Stories’ homies Perdido Key. You may have caught their debut EP released by us last month, which you can check out here. Now, the illusive NYC duo drops a banging left field EP with the illustrious NEIN Records. Two pleasantly weird and dance floor friendly originals are accompanied by a trio of remixes from Gameboyz (Spain), Sequencers (MEX), and Discordance (UK). The lead track is a wonky, chugging house number with a start/stop feel and great atmosphere. The B-side is a romping techno monster full of peak time acid and a demonic bass line. Available now here.

Death By Repetition Guest Mix 32 – Perdido Key

AIMES – The Marius Tresor EP feat. Brassica

Out today is an EP from AIMES on the UK vinyl only label Rothmans, entitled ‘The Marius Tresor EP’, after the famous French footballer (Soccer for us Yanks). The lead cut, Tunnel Down, is a mid tempo acid secret weapon that delivers a punch. An aggressive bass line, cutting arpeggios, and hypnotic redundancy makes for perfect underground sleaze. One the B side Brassica transforms Tunnel Down into a monster of a remix adding mesmerizing melodies, a stunning sense of atmosphere, and chord changes that wouldn’t be out of place in a 70’s Miles Davis cut. It’s no wonder that the record is already receiving support from the likes of Bicep, Tusk Wax, and Posthuman, to name a few. Out today and you can grab the vinyl here.
