A family affair since the early days, WOLF Music have been shining a light on the scenes and sounds the duo are ingrained in. Staying true to form and rolling deep for WOLFEP065, the spotlight turns to a selection of familiar faces and new recruits for a four track VA EP that’s strictly for the groovers.
WOLF OG, man like Medlar kicks it off in signature style with ‘Bandit’, a heads-down, techno-tinged trip. Machine music with the soul of south London. Next, professor of the dark arts, Manuel Darquart, conjures up the aptly named ‘Euphoria’ a deep, ‘90s leaning house excursion, synth wizardry and all, that works just as well as a sunset cruiser, as it does an end of the night closer.
On the flip, two long time listeners, first time callers, with a double dose of debuts on the label. Jon Sable takes the B1 with ‘Infinite Care’, offering up that trademark strong and Sable, In Dust We Trust flavour. Deep, emotive, intricate house with a nod to the worlds of Bruk and Chicago house melded together with that NZ feel.
Closing it out, debut number two comes in the form of rising star moon who lays down a beatsy, broken earworm ‘Handmade’ featuring some dreamy bars from Tamu.
Full crew, through and through – this one hits different!
I like this!
DAVE HARVEY/ FUTURE BOOGIE

JASON KRIV/ RAZOR-N-TAPE

DJ KEMIT / ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
This Friends and Family compilation was curated in a special way. Whomever is responsible for the final choice in songs needs a pat on the back. All the songs are strung together brilliantly and play well against one another. There is not a bad moment on this project. Moon’s Handmade and Medlar’s Bandin are my stand out selections. Good work.
