After 21 releases and covering most of areas of house it’s time to introduce Anaxander and present a new sound to the ever growing house of Local Talk
Antionette is a perfect slice of electronic influenced body locking flavored track, an organ alongside a bouncing bass and a rhythmic feel is sometime all you need to get movin’
It’s the B-side that really take things to the next level. Anaxander both puts his own clever stamp on these two tracks and delivers acid in the old, vintage sense that owes more to the raw and unpolished club track played by Ron Hardy at Music Box than to the old school house vibes you’ve expected from Local Talk.
Slabs 171 - DJ TLR - Live at The Hawktree Golf Club, Bismarck North Dakota
Time for another monster mix, this time from Crème’s DJ TLR, accompanied with his customary ‘reasoning’ behind it’s existence.
A live DJ set celebrating the inauguration of James Olsom II as club treasurer, performed at the Hawktree Golfclub, Bismarck North Dakota in the summer of 2012.
Over 2,5 hours of INTENSE pure RAW ROCKIN HOUSE in all its forms, with no attempts to smooth out the moments of pure UNHINGED MADNESS that drove the bar insane and gave more than a few old hoochies feelings they never thought they would have again. Hey Gopher, just gimme me a paira dancing shoes, a paira ladies and a paira medics!
Caddies agree: listening to House without BASS is like trying to putt with a tire iron.
Sometimes the burden of being a cultural icon in an environment bereft of sophistication can weigh heavy on the soul. Such faith befalls Perseus Traxx as resident of the wasteland some refer to as “York”, known for little more than it’s fine pies. Perseus is fighting a battle swimming against the stream of cow guts that slide down the slopes of Olympus as it were. Lucky for him he has access to such an international platform as ours, as we feel it our duty to show the world there are tiny lights twinkling in the darkness surrounding our fortresses of good taste. So take a bite out off the sounds of Perseus Traxx and realize there is hope for all of us, even if you’re out there in your shack on the Moors of Craggy Island. Vinyl only is not for pussies.
Perhaps it was inevitable that long time friends Johannes Paluka and Jürgen Albert would start making music together. Together they have been running their Pumping Velvet club night for some time and with Johannes already prolific through his Iron Curtis moniker and Jürgen making increasingly cool edits as Edit Piafra, it made sense that the pair would wind up in the studio. In early 2011 when Oliver Bristow from Absurd Recordings asked Johannes for some tracks for his off-shoot label Acid Test, he sent the label head a live jam he and Jürgen had recorded. A raw, jacked up drum track that gradually succumbs to blunted swatches of chords, “Your Love” became the first release for the friends, backed by two alternate versions by the Idjut Boys and the slow, methodical plod of “Talking Acid.” An equally impressive follow up came six months later, also for Acid Test and this time with a Skudge remix. This year the pair have contributed remixes for Aaron-Carl, Samuel André Madsen and German pop group Reflekta Reflekta as well as releasing their third EP, this time for the Frank Music label. Little White Earbuds got in touch with the roller-coaster of love conductors to find out more about Jürgen, to quiz Johannes on the up-sides of diversifying from his Iron Curtis day job, and to see what they have in store for their first live set at the upcoming Memory party at ://about blank. Inspired by a recent DJ set they saw, they also put together an incredible mix for us of classic and contemporary house and techno, our 143rd exclusive podcast and sure to be an instant favorite.

The man of mystery is back! Following up his killer cut “Moons of Jupiter” from
LWYF-003, Anaxander is back on Love What You Feel with a full EP of his cr azy French
twist on house and techno. Entitled “From the Dirty South (of France)”, this record
will solidify his standing as one of underground dance music’s up and coming stars.
Rocking out his distinctive arrangements and flexing his feel for mixing classic
house sounds with modern production aesthetics, Anaxander shows great
poise across the diverse cuts on display here.
A1. Angels for Stephanie
The A1 kicks things off with deep bas s and squelchy analog synthesizers, before diving
headfirst into uplifting house chords and vocal cut-ups. The essence of the EP!
A2. Back on Earth
Next up is “Back on Earth”, which adds jazzy t ouches to emotional pads and drum
machines for a jam that wouldn’t feel out of place in the Nu Groove catalog.
The dramatic pads of “Athenians” are complimented by subtly funky drum
programming, adding to dancers’ pleasure.
The EP closes with “Spartans”, a raved-up jacking banger sure to set floors on fire
from Marseille to Pittsburgh and back again.
