Sounds like a shopping spree: besides last week's massive album release by WhoMadeWho and Terranova's brilliant "Hotel Amour", two records we're really, really proud of, we'd like to present to you some great new records from our friends. Let's talk Magazine first: the ingenious Cologne-based label landed a true ambient hit earlier this year with Loops Of Your Heart, the new project from The Field's Axel Willner, but the first run, pressed on pristine 180gr Vinyl, has completely sold out since. So for those of you still waiting to get their Neo-Kraut fix, we're happy to announce this new pressing finely tuned to please even the most hardcore vinyl enthusiasts. But beware: it's likely to be gone as quickly as its predecessor. Meanwhile another Magazine staple signs what is to become an instant classic: Barnt's "Hark" is here to stay, and alongside a tightly knitted remix by Vakula, this latest release from Mule Musiq is sure to take your hearts and minds by storm. Speaking of which: Boxer celebrates its 10th anniversary and is about to churn out a meaty compilation with a hefty array of internationally acclaimed artists sure to rock your boat. This radiant 12" sampler collects four highlights from the forthcoming CD, including fresh material by Robag Wruhme, Von Spar, Lexy/Shades Of Grey and Le Dust Sucker. And as if that's not enough to make your wallet snap we take another shot at the world's sweatiest dancefloors with brandnew remixes for Gui Boratto's "Destination: Education" (from last years's glistening album "III"). With Terranova and Tale Of Us reworking the original we're certain to have a not-so-secret weapon at hand that will simply destroy even the most athletic crowd. Get ur freak on!
