The Courier : Delivery Strike EP [upfree58]

“They say The Courier delivers all around the world and is always back in time for tea. Maybe he does have a time machine (that would explain his top skills in writing great old school rave music), or maybe he just has some incredible time keeping skills, who knows?! but what we do know is that he sure knows how to deliver some top vibes!

After the classic Got The Vibes, and after his smashing set at the 10th birthday weekender in Liverpool, we’re very very proud to release The Courier’s second EP. Ambient Pads, Rave Stabs, Cheesy Pianos, High Pitched Vocals, all the perfect ingredients for that ultimate and lovely sounding old school rave music.

Let’s all go back to 1993…”

Corporate Control : Ten Dry Nails [upfree57]

“After the longest hangover ever, due to too much birthday partying all over the place (Leaving Santiago, Going to Milano, Flying to Chicago, Then Back Santiago) we are back (never sick of that) to drop some – last minute – summer hits, considering that Mexican Monkey didn’t make it to number one yet.

Its another debut on Upitup: Corporate Control is about to takeover the remaining (and best) days of your summer. Ten Dry Nails is the official soundtrack for melting cars on a highway traffic jam. Driven mainly by genuine creativity and spontaneus, lo-fi attitude, here’s a blend of silky housey chords, colourful melodies, cheap out-of-tune synths and shitty 96 kbps Linndrums. Moving between 80’s garage house, sub-par disco and cheesy synthpop Ten Dry Nails is a highly enjoyable and solid work of simple, honest and raw excellence! A heavy set of mindmelting hits, cleverly carved from tape hiss, and topped with bitter sweet melodies and deep beats. Download and enjoy what Corporate Control just cooked for you, another instant classic upitup release.”

Union Jacques : Dub Pets (the C side) [upfree47]

“Jacques returns with an instant classic EP and a little name change to honour and tribute his now 7 years in the UK. Also known as Jacques Malchance, Upitup’s founding member has been living in Liverpool since 2005 (partly on a houseboat owned by no other than Mr. Scruff) where he is well known for hosting one epic event after the other.

From the debts of the North West UK here comes…

UNION JACQUES!— [echo effect]

The tracks from Dub Pets have been classic standouts at most of Jacques’ live sets since 2007, combining deep dance floor crushing Mersey Bass and chilled synth Dub landscapes with constant quotes and references to hardware, especially to his long standing friend, sir TR-707.”
