Pittsburgh Track Authority – ISM Final Mix

2013 was a busy year for me and my Pittsburgh Track Authority homies, Preslav and Adam. Each year since we started working together, we have tried to exceed the previous year’s production. This is what we accomplished this year: 6 PTA EPs Strenf EP – Work Them Records Pittsburgh Track Authority Edits Vol. 1 –…

New Detroit Shit

As our newest writer Joseph Hallam discussed in his first post here on infinitestatemachine, the big trend in house music right now is knocking off old 90s New York and New Jersey house music. Last year, instead of the Juno “New Releases” page sounding like Kerri Chandler ripoffs, it was all Larry Heard wannabes. It…

Guest Mix: TR One “Lessons”

TR One have been up to some serious shit. Their track “Living In, Now” from last year is a total banger that doesn’t seem to have gotten anywhere near the amount of love it should have. Of course everyone knows about “Drum Dance”, also from last year and another total jam. And they have a…

Record Review: Andrés III

I’ve long been a fan of the work of Andrés; in fact, he was one of those “holy grail” type producers when I first started buying lots of house and techno a decade ago. His tracks have always been heavily sample based, but originally they were much more tracked out and minimal compared to what…

Record Review: Steve Moore on L.I.E.S.

This is chopped out of a new records post I never finished back in the beginning of summer… Some of my favorite music recently has been coming from people of a distinctly non-dance music background. The two members of Pittsburgh prog band Zombi have both had some nice electronic releases on a bunch of labels,…
