Finally, the triumphant return of Lusine. It’s been a long, LONG while since I’ve heard new productions from one of my all-time fave electronic music masterminds. From the hotly tipped floor-filler that was Nic Fanciulli’s rework of his ethereal “Two Dots,” to his work under the IDM guise Lusine ICL, this man has been around. Now, Ghostly’s got the first single from Lusine’s new album, The Waiting Room, with equally amazing, and more dance-friendly reworks from Jon Convex and Hanssen ready for us to hear. The future looks bright for 2013.

A big one from LA’s Kelly Dean, this track is deep, deadly, and minimal with some beautiful drum work to keep it moving. I quite like the whole EP. Look forward to hearing more like this in the future.

Let’s be fair here—Patrice Baumel has never been one to play by the rules. And this latest offering is no exception. What comes across at first as a normal tech-house bridge record eventually becomes interspliced with psychedelic overtones and a warped Charlotte Gainsbourg sample layered under the synth. If you like your tech house weird and dark, well, this is for you.

This first month of the year has already been rich for digital debuts of vinyl classics and rereleases, and France’s Robsoul crew are continuing a run of form with this seminal deep house record from 2004, originally on Rick Wade’s Harmonie Park label. There’s not much more to say about Theo Parrish and his genius, so head straight for “Dance Sing” to hear it shine with even the simplest of beatdown arrangements.
