Without a doubt, Body Work has rapidly become one of my favorite imprints out there, and the next piece of gold being uncovered is the upcoming 1983 EP from the Paraguayan trio, LPZ — due out on May 7th. This release sees 3 original tracks, each with their own very original sound. The title track ’1983′ takes on influences from Detroit and Chicago and truly is an instant jackin’ anthem. ‘Mafia (Dub)’ then takes the listener down deep, providing for that much needed late night dancefloor roller. Finally, we culminate with ‘Snake & Butterfish,’ which makes you feel like you’re walking through a Saudi market on a head full of acid in slow motion. Yes, it’s like that. √+ for the whole EP. Stream the first two track and download the third after the jump. Continue Reading

Matt Cutler, better known as Lone just released his first single for his forthcoming follow up to his 2010 smash LP, Emerald Fantasy Tracks. Crystal Caverns 1991 is a fast paced yet melodic track that reeks of early 90′s rave nostalgia. The EP’s B-Side, Vulcan Mill Acid is a bouncy and acidic track with percussion that is both well sequenced and complimentary. Both of these tracks will be featured on Lone’s upcoming album, Galaxy Gardens, which is slated to drop 05/07/12.
