Timeless tunage here from 1983 straight out of the stables of Larry Levan and Paradise Garage et al. I was fortunate to recently discover it was still available at the normal going rate and not the prices that make my bank manager queasy on discogs and ebay. Fair to say I quickly snapped it up. ENJOY!

Also in 2010, Mark E found himself with a an assortment of new material that could have quite easily made it on several 12" releases. As many of these productions were a step away from his edits, the idea to create and release a full length album was born.
Stone Breaker on Ghostly International will be released in May and as special treat via FACT Magazine we are given a free extended track of the new album entitled 'Deny This' (get it here).
To celebrate the release he has also produced a Stonebreakin' Mix for London promotors WARM showcasing many of new material in one blinding mix. Enjoy over 90 minutes of deep bliss below.

As an added bonus you can preview one of my favourite Mark E releases from 2009. It's that good it doesn't even need a name.

However, you just can't beat a quality mix, whatever format you choose to access it through. Wolf and Lamb and Soul Clap have become hot properties of late, and with them being chosen to mix the next DJ Kicks series, it gave them an opportunity to showcase their mix of disco, funk, soul and hip-hop influences brought together for some serious stripped down slow sensual house music.
Using 27 tracks could be daunting to some who feel over the course of a 70 minute mix is too much 'fucking about' but this actually works in their favour as it really does display their ability as selectors, DJs and producers to create an excellent mix. I'm sure it is far more daunting to create a mix with money behind it than just tape one from a DJ set and bang it up on Soundcloud.
The mix has been available for a couple of weeks. Pick it up here.
Below is two of my favourite cuts off the release for your enjoyment and pleasure.
Nicolas Jaar-Can't See What Is Burning There
No Regular Play-Takin' U Back
