Covering Tracks: Locked Groove

Covering Tracks is a regular series in which we ask our favorite producers and DJs to recommend ten new (and not so new) releases. Locked Groove, a Hotflush regular who joined the ranks of Permanent Vacation last month, composed our latest addition to the column.

liit — “islando” [LACKREC]

This is one of the tracks that’s been a staple in my sets lately. Amazing simplicity & beautifully produced.

Concierge — “Grounded” [Zaun]

This records has everything that I love: weird synth work, raw percussion. It’s probably my favorite record of the past couple months.

Carl Craig — “No More Words (New Age Tribal Mix)” [Retroactive]

When I moved to Berlin a couple of months ago and picked up all my records that were still at my parents’ place, I came across so much music that I forgot I owned. This  track is amazing. I remember that when I first heard it, I  fell in love with it straight away. I didn’t fall in love with the Discogs price tag, though..

Alex Banks — “A Matter Of Time feat. Elizabeth Bernholz (Frank Wiedemann remix)” [Monkeytown]

Classy dark vocal stuff remixed by Ame’s Frank wiedemann.

The Rhythm Odyssey and Knights of Olde — “Intro Theme (South London Ordnance Remix)” [FILM]

My buddy SLO aiming for the late-hour slots with this one. A real trip into deep space.

Woo York – “Trip from Baikonur” [Planet Rhythm]

I’v been following Woo York for a while now, and they’re quickly becoming one of favorites. Peak-time techno for bigger rooms.

Magic Mountain High — “Workshop XX A1” [Workshop]

Workshop and Magic Mountain High is a combination that can’t fail for me. It’s not for the faint of heart, but a must for anyone into deep music.

Leon Vynehall — “Inside the Deku Tree” [3024]

This entire EP was amazing. Leon Vynehall was able to bring across this really warm vibe amazes me every time I listen to it.

Nils Frahm — “Peter (The Drifter Edit)” [Unreleased]

A great edit of an already great track by one of my favorite Irish people.

Mind Against — “Avalon” [Life And Death]

I’ve been playing this track for a while now, and I never get sick of it. The way it sounds on a good club system is the stuff of legends.
