Laurel Halo, Batu, Hodge, Franklin De Costa - MF001
MF001 is here. Disc 1, as part of the long-awaited compilation from one of Berlin's club institutions ran by Franklin De Costa & co - Mother's Finest.
This two-part compilation 12"s from Berlin's Mother's Finest club night turned record label, brings together a whole heap of extended family that have contributed to dancefloor movements at their nights, and now contribute with dancefloor movements for wax, and therefore further movement.
None other than Laurel Halo, Batu, Hodge, Carl Gari, Franklin De Costa, Dynamo Dreesen, Karima F, Mosca & Nico complete the lineups for these pink & blue pieces of excellent vinyl.
The Mother's Finest parties in Berlin are somewhat of a staple for forward thinking dance music in Berlin, centred around techno and more broken, UK rhythms, with the likes of Hodge & DJ Bone being regular residents, and many of the world's most treasured DJ's and producers finding their way into the dark confines of the Griessmuehle club. RIP.
While MF finds a new home, we can revel in these two fine slabs of wax from a whole gang of talented, extended family.
This first disc brings together the tripped out sounds of the shapeshifting Laurel Halo, pure hi-tek rhythm precision from Batu, Moroder-worthy phaser action and Drexciya-worthy rhythms from Carl Gari, a tough & non-stop-stepping dedication to the basement floor of the Griessmuehle from Hodge, and a rave banger that sounds like it was tuned for that soundsystem in upstairs the main room, from the MF bossman Franklin De Costa.
Hard to pick a favourite here! Each cut provides a unique slice of body & brain music, in versatile style, from some of the MF finest out here.
Comes with DL code containing extra tracks too.
Ltd marble blue vinyl, printed sleeve.
