Krystal Klear Neutron Dance Remixes Some fresh remixes of Krystal Klear's 'Neutron Dance'. Running Back 12"
Krystal Klear The Division EP In recent times, Krystal Klear's EPs have wholeheartedly paid tribute to a variety of (mostly New York-based) historic clubs, artists and dance music sub-genres. While he's officially broken the spell with The Division EP - his first outing on Running Back - for the most part it's still a heart-warming, retro-futurist treat. He kicks things off with the cheery, Italo-disco revivalism of "Neutron Dance", where throbbing synthesizer arpeggio lines and mid-80s melodies are underpinned by a bustling mid-tempo house groove, before slowing things down via the Balearic synth-pop shuffle of "Division Ave". Turn to the flipside and you'll find more muscular, freestyle-meets-acid house fun (wild and mind-altering peak-time highlight "Shockzoid") as well as the baggy, glassy-eyed Balearic house rush of closer "Moonshake Mike".

Krystal Klear Addiction feat. Jenna G 3/5/13 - Correct pressing now back in!19/3/13 - Bit of a problem with these 12"s. We've just heard the label pressed a forthcoming track by Huxley on this 12" rather than the Krystal Klear tracks. We're witing on an eta for the correct pressing to come in to us...Here is a deliciously funky slice of modern boogie driven by a fat analogue bassline and swirling strings, all capped off with a towering vocal performance from Jenna G. In keeping with disco’s history as the birthplace of the modern remix and the extended edit, the title track is joined by an extended instrumental edit that blasts the original into deep space. All cosmic string flourishes and robotic synth chatter, it repeatedly explodes from periods of rhythm driven downtime into soaring melodic crescendos, allowing it to work both either as a DJ tool or as a set’s highlight in its own right. B-side ‘No Sweat’, meanwhile, is a slinkier and more romantic companion to the bombast of the title track, with chimes and synthetic strings picking out woozy intertwined melodies above a strutting bassline.

Krystal Klear Club Studies EP Those who've kept track with Krystal Klear's career will note that the Irish producer regularly pays tribute to historic aspects of dance music culture. Rarely, though, has he made his intentions quite as clear as this. As the name suggests, Club Studies features cuts that wholeheartedly doff a cap towards the records played at legendary New York clubs. On the A-side you'll find two versions of "Just a Little"; a groovy, soulful and sparkling mix inspired by the weekly Sunday Service bashes, and a chunky, hypnotic, percussion-led affair that nails the sound Danny Tenaglia was championing at Twilo in the late 1990s. Turn to the flip for the muscular, Junior Vasquez style dark garage of "Dedication (Sound Factory Mix)" and the riff-heavy Brooklyn techno throb of the "NASA Mix" of the same track.
