Quit Quittin – 5 highlights of Move D’s epic discography

“I am old enough to even remember a time before techno and electronic music – the word DJ didn’t mean that much…” —  David Moufang aka Move D

A man of many disguises and a serial collaborator, David Moufang aka Move D continues to amaze his audience today by releasing consistently brilliant EP’s and LP’s, year in, year out. A true veteran of the craft, Moufang has been commercially producing music for 25 years and has appeared on labels as varied as Running Back, Warp, Workshop, Uzuri and Underground Quality.

Moufang is undoubtedly among the artists that people passionate about electronic music should learn about and observing how he develops with time is especially interesting, considering how youthful and curious his sound became over time. Although not essential, it is best to take the time to listen to Moufang’s work in chronological progression as making this investment will help the listener appreciate how Moufang has unfurled over his 25 year-long career.

His sound isn’t by any means settled in a distinct style and his discography is a testament to his artistic versatility. The beginning of his discography sounds like a sci-fi soundtrack, whereas twenty years later, he produces drum-heavy funk-oriented material that rips dance floors apart. Even today, Moufang’s sound continues to be youthful and inquisitive.



Move D Kunststoff vinyl

Move D // Kunststoff


Kunststoff was big when it was released, and there’s no secret why — it’s a masterful blend of very rhythmic, almost IDM-ish Techno and an airy and atmospheric character. There were three represses of the LP in 1995 alone.

Move D speaks a lot about how much robotics, technology, and space have influenced him as an artist. These motives can be traced in his earlier work, and Kunststoff is an excellent example of that.

The most memorable feature of this LP is its mood. After giving the album a first listen, you’ll notice how eery and introspective it is. There are many gems on Move D’s debut album that will awaken even a modern crowd, but this minor-scale and self-questioning mood of the record makes it an armchair Techno classic.

Not only does Kunststoff pass the test of time, but it also stays relevant in the current House/Techno ecosystem. Furthermore, for the producers out there, this is one of the valuable examples of a piece of art from the times when plugins didn’t even exist.

Studio Pankow // Linienbusse


Linienbusse is a collective effort made by Jamie Hodge, Kai Kroker, and David Moufang. And although this isn’t a solo Move D project, it’s safe to say that this album is among Moufang’s most significant investments towards mastering the craft of electronic music.

The LP is an Electronica/Techno organic masterpiece packed with soul – it progresses, it moves, it breathes. There is a ghost in the machine.

The tracklist reads more like a bus itinerary that moves through a list of locations in Berlin. Musically speaking, Linienbusse does sound like a trip. The name of the album roughly translates from German as “Regular Busses” which suggests that the tracks are dedicated to the artists’ beloved sites in Berlin; after all, we’re influenced by what we see everyday.

This breathtaking LP attempts to take its listener to the places where electronic music originated, by showing them its more emotive and meditative side.

Magic Mountain High XX vinyl record covers

Magic Mountain High // Workshop xx


Another impressive collaborative project that sees Move D join forces with Juju and Jordash. First seeing life on wax on Workshop in 2012, Magic Mountain High is an improvisational act that was born at the Freerotation Festival and has since been performing all over the world.

The untitled A-side in pretty much a ten-minute analogue excursion, with a profound and bold bass line, abundant percussion, and sound FX that takes you back to the time of “Kunststoff.” The B-side is much more playful. It has the same dense and rubbery drum section, but with joyful and even naïve melodies.

 CONJOINT Berger Hodge Moufang Ruit

Conjoint // Berger Hodge Moufang Ruit

The fusion of genres happens typically in very subtle ways. It looks for common denominators. “Berger Hodge Moufang Ruit” doesn’t do that. It pairs very straightforward analogue drums programmed by Moufang and Hodge, while Ruit Kraus plays the guitar, and Karl Berger gloriously plays the vibraphone.

This album wasn’t intended to be a smooth combination of electronic and live instruments, but rather as a clash of the two worlds.
With two people programming drums and bass, you can imagine that the LP is strongly percussive and full of life. Rhythmically, this project has very tribal character and often has a slowed-down and housey drum section. The Wire magazine said that this album is easily comparable to Miles Davis’ ‘In A Silent Way.’ This serves as a testament to the importance of this LP both in Moufang’s roster and electronic music in general.

Move D // Workshop 13


Move D’s EP on Workshop is among the most exciting projects of his later career. Moufang has developed an affinity for heavily sampled and more classic House tropes, and Workshop 13 is an excellent showcase of his interest in this strain of electronic music.

Considering Moufang’s interest for improvisation and his long-term collaboration with Juju and Jordash in Magic Mountain High, Workshop 13 appears to be a live recording that has been trimmed and polished, rather than a carefully thought out project.

Either way, it’s rich and slightly agitated, but deep and meditative at the same time. Workshop 13 follows an aesthetic not too disimilar to Theo Parrish. It’s not necessarily easy-going, it can’t be listened to mindlessly, and the sound is quirky and immediately recognizable – we think this a pretty good summary of Move D’s sound over the last 25 years.

The 16 Best Chez Damier Songs

“Vinyl is like a book. Because it was never about making money in the first place, I can now have fun again doing the vinyl bit and leave the digital to those who wanna take it and make it into an empire. I have no intentions of making music into an empire.”  – Chez Damier

Born in a suburb of Chicago, Anthony Pearson, better known as Chez Damier, has been one of the true pioneers of electronic music. From running seminary music establishment, The Music Institute in Detroit alongside Alton Miller and Derrick May, to his involvement in running Kevin Saunderson’s legendary KMS label, through to working with leading producers such as MK, Ron Trent, Stacey Pullen and Saunderson himself, Chez has done it all.

Together with Ron Trent, Chez owned the prolific Prescription label, widely regarded as one of the finest house imprints ever and the duo nurtured; a sound what would eventually become known as deep house.

After his split from Prescription in 1997, there was a lengthy period of inactivity. Eventually, Damier releases started appearing again sporadically until 2009 when he joined the roster of Germany classic house and techno label, Mojuba. Damier now releases exclusively through the label, but past productions have seen the light of day from other essential labels such as his own label Balance, Eddie Leader’s Hudd Traxx, Popcorn Records and Track Mode .

Quite a list of achievements.

To pay our homage to one of the pioneers of house music, we’ve compiled a list of his most notable tunes, true gems and future classics that shall never be forgotten.



A Work In Progress – Moment Of Truth (Yore)

A collaboration between Priceless One and Chez, this is deep house perfection combining jazzy and organic elements.


Chez Damier & MK – The Feeling (Mojuba)

Chez & MK were fairly prolific as a partnership and “The Feeling” is a fine example of the quality of their work.


Chez N Trent – All About You

Previously unreleased until 2009, Chez and his long-term production partner Ron Trent drops killer tribal rhythms.


Alton M – I Like Havin’ You (Cyren America)

Damier on production duties for another member of deep house royalty, the severely underrated Alton Miller.



Noni – Teach/Keep Me

Chez and Ron Trent take snippets from Midway – Set It Out and create near perfection. Backed with a quality Kai Alce remix on the flip.


Chez Damier featuring Antonie – Close (Balance Recordings)

One of his many tracks that were heavily influenced by jazzy elements – packed full of brass and piano riffs.


Chez Damier – Can You Feel It (Club Vocal) (KMS)

The vocal version of Chez Damier’s most notable song. MK’s Dub edit was the reason that took this record all over the world.


Chez Damier & Stacey Pullen – Forever Monna (Prescription)

Chez and Detroit OG Stacy Pullen combine for one of the most prizes tracks in his discography.


Chez Damier – Close (Distance)

“Close” drops a big vocal showing the more emotional side of Damier’s output.


Chez N Trent – Morning Factory (Prescription)

This one should need no introduction. Damier and Trent combine on what is easily one of the best deep house tracks of all time.


Chez Damier – Take Me Away (Not On Label)

Released in 2015 via less-than-legal means, this is actually Damier’s edit of David Morales’ remix of none other than Mariah Carey.


Chez Damier ft. Leroy Burgess – Your Love (Balance)

“Your Love” with Leroy Burgess on vocal duties was one of first track released after Chez Damier’s comeback in 2004 after a 7 year break.


Chez Damier – Help Myself (Mojuba)

Damier’s second release on Mojuba, widely regarded as one of the best deep house records around.


Chez Damier & Ron Trent – Foot Therapy (Prescription)

One of Ron & Chez’s finest – thumping, soulful and jazzy.


Chez Damier – Untitled B1 (KMS)

Probably Chez’s finest solo moment – the quintessential deep house record with those disco strings.

The 10 Best Ambient/Electronic Releases of 2018 (So Far)

Introducing Josh Reid, one half of Space Afrika, a dubbed out ambient duo hailing from the north of England.

With releases on Sferic, a recent mix for Fact Mag and a show on NTS, Josh alongside partner, Josh Inyang have developed a unique sound that borrows from the the menace of Berlin dub techno and merges it with beatless ambience to produce a unique, smokey soundscape.

As well as a producer, Josh is a killer selector so for his inaugural post for Sound Shelter, he puts together his favorite recent ambient and electronic releases.

‘It’s never easy selecting my favourite music for the moment but after listening to countless amazing sounds I’ve narrowed it down. I’ve been digging these 10 tracks mostly over the past month or so and chose them based on feelings and moods, That have been consistent with the year so far. Optimistic !’

Pontiac Streator & Ulla Straus – Chat

‘Chat 1’

‘Chat 1’ comes as the third release via the west mineral imprint. More beat focused that its predecessors, ‘Chat 1’ is like a meeting with a Shaman. Tribal elements with murky bass and pads feel as though one is walking through a swamp of sound. Image the idea of an ayahuasca trip taking you through primitive lands. Amazing.

Listen/Buy Pontiac Streator / Ulla Straus – Chat


 Rian Treanor – RAVEDIT

‘Untitled 2’

Nothing but feels on this one. Reminiscing about late night raves, this one is sure to make floors move. Quick step vibes and emotive vocal samples create nothing but euphoric moments. Another forward thinking release from Rian Treanor.

Listen/Buy Rian Treanor – RAVEDIT

Topdown Dialectic – S/T



[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=2548782941 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]

Anonymous producer ‘ Topdown Dialect’ brings filtered dread and lost soundscapes with consistency. The addition is the dynamic range in which each sound is defined .’B4′ is slow stepping and Dubby. Kick back with your headphones and enjoy the sound design for a personal listening experience.


 Samuel Kerridge – The I is Nothing

Lino78 dist preview

‘Fascination Sustain’

Downwards on form again. Dystopian Techno with unparalleled patterns. Had this one on repeat for some time now. BUY ON SIGHT.

Listen/Buy Samuel Kerridge – The I Is Nothing


Madteo – Unrescuable Dense Musik Of The Blah Blahs

MADTEO - Unrescuable Dense Musik Of The Blah Blahs


This takes you through the mind of Madteo. one of the most interesting artists out there. The cassette channels so many different genres with NY distortion and dirt. Imagine hanging out with a boombox on the corner. Proper

Kareem Lotfy – QTT10


Delicately laid out pads and soft notes have been the theme to my UK Summer so far. Coming via the great Quiet Time Tapes, this has been the perfect follow up from his release on PAN ‘fr3sh’. Highly recommended this to ambient lovers.

Abul Mogard – Above All Dreams

Abul Mogard Above All Dreams vinyl record covers

‘Upon The Smallish Circulation’

‘Upon the smallish circulation’ is an ambient / modern classic dream. Serious depth and attention paid to each sound leaves the listener transfigured after the track has ended. The automation throughout creates a hypnotic feel leading to afternoon daydreaming.

Listen/Buy Abul Mogard – Above All Dreams

Bovel – Check 4 U

Bovel Check 4 U vinyl record covers

‘Check 4 U’

A Manchester classic makes it way back into the fold. Killer record. Massive insight into the ‘street soul’ sounds from the mid 90’s. Sweet vocals and cascading bass makes this perfectly enjoyable as a home listen and club environment.

Listen/Buy Bovel – Check 4 U


Miss Red – K.O

Miss Red KO vinyl record covers


Experimental Dancehall comes via Miss Red. This is a ecstatic listen into modern club music with production by The Bug. Miss red’s vocals are refreshing throughout and capture Jamaica’s hedonistic genre. Distorted bass and fizzled percussion make this a serious stepper.

Listen/Buy Miss Red – K.O


Kutiman – Don’t Hold Onto The Clouds

Kutiman Dont Hold Onto The Clouds vinyl record covers

‘Behind The Noise’

The Multi talented Kutiman channels new age ambient on this one. A meditative listen with focus on folk and roots. Beautiful percussion with reverb overlays droning pads and falling notes. Perfect evening listen !

The 21 Best Carl Craig Remixes

Just the glimpse of the words Carl Craig remix on the tracklist of an otherwise unremarkable looking EP will send DJs scrambling for their headphones, ready to have their ears and minds scrambled by the latest interpretation from the man who’s been likened to the Miles Davis of Techno.

Since his first remix in 1988, Carl Craig has an extraordinary 605 remixes credited to his name on Discogs. While not all of these have shown his true skill, the vast majority would make any producer envious of his ability to turn even the blandest pop track into a techno masterpiece capable of sending even the most critical dancefloor into raptures.

To celebrate the Detroit legends numerous gifts to sound systems across the globe, we’ve compiled the best ever Carl Craig remixes.


Cesaria Evora – Angola (Carl Craig remix) [2002]

Organic percussion, psychedelic synth and 909s collide in this killer building remix of Cape Verdean songstress Cesaria Evora.


Hugh Masekela – The Boy’s Doin’ It (Carl Craig remix) [2005]

Two historically politically-charged cities join forces as Detroit meets Johannesburg as C2 tackles South African flugelhorn player Hugh Masekela.


Maurizio – Domina (Carl Craig’s mind remix) [1993]

A true house masterpiece as Craig energises Mark Ernestus and Mauritz Von Oswald’s dub techno with swinging 909s, sub bass and mind-melting pad swirls.


Telex – Moskow Diskow (Carl Craig remix) [1998]

Odd-ball Italo gem from 1979 gets thumped up by C2 in one of his best remixes.


Theo Parrish – Falling Up (Carl Craig remix) [2005]

For many, the quintessential Carl Craig remix. Techno meets Jazz with stunning effect.


Faze Action – In The Trees (Carl Craig mix #1) [2007]

Opening with paranoid synths bursts, the track goes to the next level as those strings come into play.


Throbbing Gristle – Hot On The Heels Of Love (Carl Craig Re-Version) [2004]

Thumping, psychedelic, big room techno


Tony Allen – Kilode (Carl Craig’s straight remix) [2007]

Fela Kuti’s drummer, Tony Allen gets dragged into the future as a breaky intro full of street-vocals leads into a ridiculously funky bassline, and quite possibly the best kick drum in house history.


Junior Boys – Like A Child (Carl Craig remix) [2006]

C2 turns the playful original into a sinister uptempo soundscape of arpeggio leads, hushed vocals and metallic pads.


Rhythm & Sound – Poor People Must Work (Carl Craig remix) [2006]

Craig, Ernestus and Von Oswald join forces again, this time on the Berlin duos Rhythm & Sound project as Craig takes Bobbo Shanti’s vocals out from under the smokey dub haze into the dancefloor stratosphere. Check out our guide to the best Rhythm & Sound records here


GusGus – Polyesterday (Carl Craig’s Shot In The Leg Dub) [1998]

A severely underplayed remix that easily stands the test of time despite being nearly 20 years old. All acid-riffs, floaty vocals and rolling claps. The vocal remix is equally as good.


Alexander Robotnick – Problèmes D’Amour (Carl Craig Remix) [2007]

The oddball Italo-tinged original gets looped up into a disco-house roller with jazzy drums edits breaking things up.


Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom – Relevee (Carl Craig remix) [2006]

An opening burst of kaleidoscopic synths slowly morphs into a full jazz workout over the space of 11 glorious minutes.


Hot Lizard – The Theme (Carl Craig Mix) [1995]

Nearly 23 years old and still sounding like the future.


Beanfield – Tides (C’s Movement #1) [2004]

At the time this was possibly a career-high for Craig, as he turns the soul-drenched original into a brooding-and-then-euphoric club masterpiece.


Factory Floor – Turn It Up (C2 remix) [2013]

A stripped down 808-driven DJ tool of the highest calibre


Ultramarine – Hooter (Carl Craig / Ver. 1.1) [1994]

808s, tribal rumbles and quitessential Detroit synths collide


Incognito – Out Of The Storm (C’s Planet E Special Mix) [1996]

Jazzy, mellow brilliance


Directions – Busted Trees (C’s Spacestrumental) [2004]

C2 takes the coffee-table jazz original and turns it into a string-driven wonder that builds over the space of 8 and a half glorious minutes. (Tip from Peter Benedetto)


Dave Angel – Airborne (Carl Craigs Drums Sucks remix) [1995]

12 minutes of beatless Detroit techno (Tip from Tom Sin-r Vde)


Carl Craig Vs. Johnny Blas – Picadillo 7 (A Lo Blas) [1999]

Another beatless excursion, this time on a remix of Latin conguero Johnny Blas (Tip from João Pedro)

The 14 Best Theo Parrish Tracks

“Music moves in such a way you can’t really talk about an artist using one set of adjectives, because that would mean you’ve listened to all of their works; that would mean you’d come to a consensus about what that artist’s work does.” — Theo Parrish

He’s right.

We’ve listened to a lot of Theo Parrish records. If we had to describe his sound it would be that “it sounds like Theo Parrish”. Maybe it’s something in the equipment he uses, the records he’s sampling or something otherworldly. You often hear people refer to his sound as “raw”, but as this interview covers, he also does “nice”.

The Motor City producer has released on some of the best underground labels in the world such as Third Ear and Peacefrog Records, and worked with producers both big and small including Carl Craig, Amp Fiddler and Duminie Deporres, as well as his fellow 3 Chairs members: Rick Wilhite, Moodymann and Marcellus Pittman. To add to this he’s produced several killer albums including ‘Parallel Dimensions’ and ‘American Intelligence’. There is a lot to dig through.

One things for sure, he has produced some magical records over the last 20 years and here’s what we consider to be some of his more dancefloor-friendly highlights.

The 10 Best Rhythm & Sound Tracks

Rhythm & Sound is one of several projects linked to the mysterious Berlin dub-techno duo Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus. They released a series of 10″ records on Burial Mix and 12″ records on Rhythm & Sound, both labels distributed by Hardwax.

Von Oswald and Ernestus’ Rhythm & Sound recordings are much more dub-influenced and less techno-orientated than the duo’s previous, and more legendary, dub-techno recordings as Basic Channel and Maurizio.

Where those earlier recordings synthesized a Detroit-influenced style of minimal techno with dub-reggae bass lines, the late-’90s Rhythm & Sound productions emphasized the dub-reggae aesthetic.

Here are our favourites from their outstanding discography, where the deep, FX-driven warmth of Jamaican dub meets the ice cold, machine patterns of techno.

15 records you might have missed over Christmas and New Year

Christmas and New Year are often occupied by these things:

– Fearing the words “Can I have a word…” from your boss, the day after over-zealous Christmas party activities
– Researching the returns policy of multiples stores in expectation of receiving yet another t-shirt that you’ll never wear
– Justifying excessive amounts of food and drink intakes with the phrase “go on, it’s Christmas”
– Formerly peaceful family homes turning into war zones from yet more accusations of cheating at the annual game of Monopoly on Christmas day

Searching for new records is often low on peoples agendas, so here’s some records we’re enjoying that you might have missed over the last few weeks.
