October 7th 2022 (Beatport Exclusive)
October 21st (Worldwide)
Amsterdam-based Swedish duo Marmolak return to Ready Mix Records for label release 257, comprising three original tracks, plus remixes by BiGz and Serhe.
Childhood friends Nima & Victor, aka Marmolak describe themselves as ‘heavily inspired by radiant Moroccan bazaars and dimly-lit Tehran nights’. These influences glimmer throughout opening cut ‘Azul’, a subtle and atmospheric arrangement which features haunting flutes and metallic percussion flourishes.
Ready Mix founder BiGz cooks up a delectable helping of electronic dub, gently blending the original parts into a smooth and nutritious groove-cake, with an icing that’s all his own.
Marmolak’s second original, ‘Ripple’, raises the tempo a little and wraps itself around robotic synth plucks and a rock-solid kick and bass groove.
Making an impressive debut on Ready Mix, Serhe rolls out a deep-tech version of ‘Ripple’, with Afro-inspired percussion and expansive atmospherics.
Aptly named third original track ‘Toke’ shows a more blunted, side of the Marmolak pair, with head-nodding drums, spooky melodies and spine-tingling vocal snippets combining to create a perfect late night smoking companion.
Threshold Productions – Rio Grande (TP Recordings)
New tech house EP from Threshold Productions named “Rio Grande” with 2 great remixes by Krusseldorf and Nano Ona.

She is a live performer and vocalist who has played with various bands at places like Kater Blau and for labels such as King Street and Hive Audio. She also runs her own 4PAWS Records and has collaborated with respected artists across the worlds of house, trip-hop and soul. One of them is The Revenge aka Graeme Clark who is known for his sublime and forward-thinking productions. From dusty disco to deep house he does it all to great acclaim, often on his Roar Groove imprint or with Craig Smith as 6th Borough Project.
First comes ‘Running Undercover,’ a brilliantly minimal synth house tune with clipped kicks and dry hits. A taught and catchy bassline props up the infectious groove as Kristina’s steamy, intimate vocal line brings a sense of mystery. Though subtle and restrained, this tune has the potential to become a real underground anthem, not least because of the playful sax notes at the breakdown.
‘Something More’ is another gem, this time with leggy drums and percolating bass under cosmic and shimmering chords. The exquisite vocal from Kristina is loose and airy, soaring up high as pulsing bass notes keep the groove and synths bring feelings of magical melancholy.
These are two artful and original tunes from this fantastic pairing.
