VA - The Dominique Rocheteau EP

UK-Based label Rothmans is going to put out it's third release soon! Rothmans is a label that is based on the collectible football cards from the 70's. This time it's now-legendary striker Dominique Rocheteau who takes the homage.
First up on the A-side of this four-tracker is Coyote with a funky but tripped-out, acid-laden disco groove. Really nice work. Second track is a track by Aimes from New York and includes wonderful sound design that should work in any balearic set this summer.

Second side opens with a track by the brilliant Scott Fraser and that should say enough. Brilliant bassline on that one. But it's the closing track from Tilburg's experimental Drvg Cvltvre that really catches the attention.. Almost like an outcast, this track opens with a really, really dirty and bassline and shows no signs of improvement on the happier side. Filtered organs and tight distorted percussion makes the thing even more haunting than it already was. The devil is in the details..

Rothmans003 is due out first week of July on 180 grams vinyl and will hit all major records shops worldwide. We included a Soundcloud set with previews of the whole release. Keep a close eye on this one: strictly limited release and no digital!!
