Luca Lozano – And It Was Good [Optimo Trax]

The Klasse Records boss, Luca Lozano, has been spreading himself about a bit in recent times and he’s landed his latest EP on the relatively new Optimo Trax for their 6th outing. ‘And It Was Good EP’ kicks off with what sounds like a creepy house ode to Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells on the first title track. The next track is a laid back proto deep housey number called Fantasy FM. Third up on the bill is Third Eye Open, another unsettling creepy number that takes shape as an acid house tune. Closing up this great EP is Telekom, a driving and unrelenting acid power house track that is bound to hypnotise any up for it dancefloor!

Underground house pioneers Tsuba Records return with their fifth and final instalment of the Samurai EP series. In the past, the Samurai series has seen the likes of Huxley, Two Armadillos and Peace Division all step up and turn in a slab of quality club music. In this, their fifth and final chapter, Kevin Griffiths welcomes four new artists to the Tsuba fold in the shape of Luca Lozano, Owain K, Nil By Mouth and Little Fritter.

Klasse head honcho, Luca Lozano comes up trumps with “Crucificks”, a melancholic 303 infused monster. Owain K’s tech house work out is neatly dipped in acid melodies and Nil By Mouth and Little Fritter’s groovy house numbers are guaranteed to get a dance floor jumping.

As such, Tim Green has announced the launch of Disc Over. Set to be a platform for all the multi facets of quality house and techno, the first release will be from Tim himself and will be backed by remixes from Timo Maas and My Favourite Robot.

To go with the launch of this exciting venture, there will be an incredibly special launch party which will take place in the hallowed halls of The Tunnel, a Napoleonic Fortress in Kent. The line up is stellar to say the least, not only will Tim be performing a special live set, he will be joined by Innervisions boss and deep house aficionado Dixon. Completing the line up are Luca Lozano and Mr. Ho who front the much respected Klasse Recordings imprint and will also be releasing on Disc Over.

They say good news comes in threes, as such Tim Green is giving away two never before heard original productions over here to serve as a mere taster of what to expect from the Disc Over camp.
