We’re excited to announce the release of Sahy Uhns’ second album, Courtship Dances, on November 4th. Courtship Dances is the follow up to Sahy Uhns’ debut record An Intolerant Disdain Of Underlings in 2011.
Tolerance Training: Part Two
The first track to be shared off of Courtship Dances was “Tolerance Training: Part Two” which debuted on XLR8R with these words from Glenn Jackson,
["Tolerance Training: Part Two"] spends much of its five-minute run coyly shifting shapes from a cavernous dance track, to a more energetic house affair led by active (and even a touch funky) synth sequences and lined with an array of minute rhythmic details. An impressive feat of dancefloor evolution…Read the full review
J’ed(ed) / Chyme
The second track to be released from Courtship Dances was “J’ed(ed) / Chyme” which debuted on THUMP from managing editor Jemayel Khawaja who had this to say,
This tune comes out the gate as a raunchy, fidgetty heater and switches up into dystopian ghetto-tech beat now and again – but somewhere around the three minute mark, it devolves into a voided soundscape from which it never returns. The whole thing is an engrossing endeavor…Read the full review

We are proud to present our latest release, the debut EP from the incredibly talented mHz. Subtle intricacies and stark beauty make Mohammad Zareei’s “Hg” the perfect soundtrack for our transition into the fall season.
“Although extremely toxic, mercury was traditionally thought of as the First Matter, from which all metals were formed. Yet, exposure to this exotic cold-silver looking liquid metal can cause severe health damages. In this EP, I used mercury as a metaphor for noise: an exotic singularity that can be dangerous, disturbing, and harmful, while being the richest source of all sounds. Pushing the limit to the fine line between harshness and pleasure, “Hg” is an effort to create an amalgam of trifling noises of everyday life, glitches of the machine, and digital oscillations on a persistence pulse. Beat and noise are fused here to make each other more interesting, taming the harshness, while preserving the provocativeness.”
BENEDEK’s debut EP That’s My Jam! is available NOW, both as an online digital EP and on 7″ vinyl. The lead single is a party anthem and features the smooth vocal stylings of friend and collaborator DāM-FunK. That’s My Jam! will get your feet on the dance floor and your hands in the air, if not for the undeniable groove than because DāM-FunK said so. BENEDEK’s first official solo release is prepped and ready to blow up – get ready for a new voice in modern boogie-funk…
For the digital version of That’s My Jam!, BENEDEK recruited labelmates BearClaw, Lawrence Grey, Sahy Uhns and Wake and fellow 8-bit fanboy Knife City to craft remixes that greatly expand the sonic reach of the single. BearClaw’s contribution is the perfect soundtrack to your summer backyard barbecue. Lawrence Grey’s mix is a nod to the dance floor with its driving disco house beat. Wake flips the beat with a hip-hop version and Sahy Uhns takes it to the dirty south with his chopped and screwed remix before blasting back off into space. If the original That’s My Jam! brings to mind a sunny SoCal day, Benedek’s “Midnight Cruiser Mix” takes you on a starry night drive down the PCH in a black Ferrari.
