East End Dubs ENDZ040 Who better to bring in Eastenderz's 40th release than the man behind it all, East End Dubs, hitting you hard with a three tracker of his trademark style. Seismic basslines, twisted synths, drums wizardry and the kind of percussion that's guaranteed to work on dance-floors. Another timeless EP from the label boss! Essential business as always from Eastenderz. Eastenderz 12"
WICKHAM / Vlad Arapasu / COSMJN / Floog 6 Years of Eastenderz Pt.1 A milestone six years for Eastenderz, with just shy of 40 releases in that time. Eastenderz returns with two landmark releases to celebrate the 6th year of the label. For the Part 1 of this anniversary release, Eastenderz treat you to a four-track showcase with Floog’s interplanetary peak time roller ‘Games of Drones’ and Cosmjn’s bright arp-infused house bumper ‘Cosmo Acids’ taking the A side. Flip it over and Vlad Arapasu brings the heat with ‘Egoland’, another minimal warper powered by punchy basslines, floating synth touches and a percussive chopped vocal. Finally, Wickham draws for a squelching breaks cut in the form ‘Mello’ to perfectly close out Part 1. Eastenderz 12"
Okain ENDZ038 Okain brings his signature sound to Eastenderz with this solid four tracker of robust rollers that will test the limits of any system they're put before. No sign of slowing down with his productions, the Parisian delivers a deeper journey down into the minimal soundscape that sits perfectly in the Eastenderz catalogue. Essential business as always from Eastenderz. Eastenderz 12"
Vincentlulian ENDZ037 The latest edition of the ever-dependable ENDZ series comes from Vincentliulian, an established name on the Romanian minimal scene, who delivers an inspirational EP made up of four minimal warpers. Moving from twisted rollers to dream-like heaters, all of which have foundations built on arrow-precise percussion and punchy subs, this is another timeless essential from the Eastenderz crew.

Doubtingthomas ENDZ 019 Aurelien Riviere's work as Doubtingthomas has been a staple of the tech-house stronghold since the late 00s, and he is often cited as a name which brought zest and freedom to the genre, unlike many of his more loop-minded contemporaries. He returns to Eastenderz with a tactile three-tracker, headlined by "Dem Unbekannten", a bleepy technoid bullet which evolves ever so gently into an endlessly hypnotic tunnel of atmospherics. "Bastide" is similarly shape-shifting, except the execution is more mechanical and dub-minded, whereas swarm heads deep into the minimal whirlpool. Effective tools for the open-minded tech-head.

WICKHAM / Viceversa / Doubtingthomas / COSMJN ENDZ 020 The Eastenderz label drop their 20th outing to date, just in time for the Easter weekend! That means you'll be able to smash out some killer house on the floor, and these tools are just what you need to do be able to do that. Wickham's "Digsy" kicks off with a delightful injection of bass, pushing a fat groove over a vast 7 minutes of bounciness, while Viceversa's "Aden" tones the pace down and heads into the murkier end of the deep house scale. On the flip, Doubtingthomas comes thorugh with "Jegun", a space-age roller with vast synths extending the track's reach, leaving Cosmjn's "Butterfly Drop" to deliver one final shot of bass-driven house that can only be smashed out on a jam-packed dancefloor. Badness from the Eastenderz! Eastenderz 12"
Viceversa ENDZ 017 12" cut from Viceversa, on clear vinyl with a blue & black splatter. Eastenderz 12"
East End Dubs ENDZ 016 Aside from a few, sporadic appearances here and there, East End Dubz has pretty much been loyal to his own imprint, through which he has solidified a house sound of his own. Number 16 in the series offers a predictably classy affair in the form of 2 club trax that are bound to sync with pretty much anything you throw at them. "Space Cadet" is a direct, no bullshit house missile made for keeping the moods and tempos at a steady pace, while "Halfjack" is more on the playful side, shooting out tidy little melodic twists amid its rawer and more off-kilter percussion.
