Laylla Dane presents Sofia
As the capital and largest city in Bulgaria, Sofia boasts a population of 1.3m and a history dating back to 7000 BC as a settlement. According to their national TV it is one of the top ten best places for start-up business in the world and USA Today rated it Europe’s most affordable capital to visit in 2013. While its musicians haven’t enjoyed too much crossover success in Western Europe, it’s underground dance scene is simmering nicely, with plenty of common ties to their minimal counterparts in Russia.
At the forefront is Laylla Dane who, on DJ skills alone, caught the eye of Zip back in 2014 who asked her to play his annual New Kids on Acid party at Watergate. After that break she’s not looked back and her stature has steadily grown to make her sit alongside Kink as a Bulgarian ambassador for house and techno in Europe.

Jichael Mackson - Hurdy Gurdy EP
Histories of ages past, unenlightened shadows cast, down through all eternity, the crying of humanity”
Be ready for some deeply moving “Hurdy Gurdy” music by Bavarian producer Jichael Mackson. Since almost two decades the man from Munich releases house, techno and his minimal sub-genres on labels like liebe*detail, Hartchef Discos, Musique Risquée, Ilian Tape or Serialism to name a few.
His latest three tracker EP on Budapest-based Akkult likes to swim against the stream and shows his love for dark epic track dramaturgy. The 15 minute minimal tune “Bi Polar” reminds somehow on the foggy jive of Ricardo Villalobos with his twisted synth sounds and odd rhythms. All gets enlarged with dub infected chords and a haunting melody that somehow appears in the middle just to disappear again.
Also the two B-side tunes dance epic around the eight minutemark with a minimalistic dark sound architecture that is totally arresting. Magnificent, delirious black coloredmaster-class minimal music. Deeply meditative, haunting, precise constructed, funky and tremendously entertaining for dancefloors and everyone’s very own psyched out mind trips.
Jichael Mackson Remix (Secrez Society Chile)
Jichael Mackson provides his first remix after 11 years filled with his unique strong basslines giving a alternate dark & spacey version of Rene's original.
Polla returns to Nilla with two tracks featuring a remix by swedish Arkajo.
Influenced by old-school and shaped by new tools Pola delivers his next shot on Nilla. Le Petit Panka channels some of Pola’s playful, sportive memories from a trip to Paris, with some softly handled acid flava between the lines.
DoubtingThomas returns to Organic for his 3rd vinyl release!!!
Aurelien has been part of the family since day one and never disappoints with that signature sound that is so proper to him ¡! Kicking off with “Puffed Dandy” a stellar stripped back minimalist cut that should make some proper damage on the dance floor.
On the flit side, “Diapason” is slightly deeper and jazzier, but yet with that distinctive and infectious groove signed DT. “Passing Tone” is closing the ep nicely. Classy atmospheric textures and depth, a real treat for the after hours!

Jichael Mackson - Carneval EP - SER043
For the first release of 2018 and our 11th year in the game, we kick off proceedings with Jicheal Mackson. The highly in demand producer and live artist drops another forward thinking offering on our imprint. On the A side he delivers Carneval, its an underground disco themed cut with hypnotic highs, a groovy bassline and intricate drum programming that evolves through out, vocal murmurs add to the ambiance and complete this winner. Jichael switches things up on the B side (vinyl only) with Odyssey, this is a more stripped down and trippy affair with break beat drum programming merged with 4/4 swing, white noise slashes and drones set the mood for dark little number. On B2, he lifts the mood with Kraut, a more upbeat offering, driven with a bouncy bass groove and intermittent lush pads he creates another groovy master piece perfect for a late night dance floor. This EP truly shows the diversity and talent of Jicheal Mackson and confirms Serialism never ending quest to deliver quality underground music ...

Pola gets deep with hypnotic minimal house with two captivating cuts on the Yoyaku sub-label AKU
Hungarian producer Pola, aka Polarize, lands on the fresh Yoyaku sub-label AKU with a two-track 12” titled ‘Kuku’, featuring two deep and minimal house cuts.
Building on the stacked catalogue of AKU, which includes releases by Janeret, Varhat, Clébert, and Molly, Pola now delivers more focused dancefloor energy. He’s built up a solid reputation as resident of Romania’s Midi Club and is one to rely on as a tastemaker through his own label All Inn Records.
‘Triangle’, which is found on the a-side of the ‘Kuku’ EP, moves at a steady pace with rolling bass riffs and a gritty tech house motif. ‘Survival’ rounds out the release on the b-side with a melodic tribal groove complete with tripped out textures. Both are sure dancefloor bombs not to be overlooked. Listen to both cuts below.
