    [Monday, June 11]
    Abstract Sessions presents
    TOBIAS from Guidance Records + Resident Selectors

    Look out for the next LP in the Hi-Fidelity Dub Sessions, NYC based
    reggae collective
    Roots Combination, out on Guidance June 12.

    [3] Luke's (LSE) compilation, "A.a. [Audio anonymous] : a twelve
    step program" will be released on his own Deezal Records through
    Caroline Distribution. The 12 track compilation focuses on emerging
    artists from across the U.S. The street date for this budget
    conscious compilation (do not pay more than 10.98 for this CD!) is
    07/XX/01. Featuring new & unreleased tracks from Baldwin Brothers,
    Mike Ladd & Not Breathing. More to come.

    Stereotyp feat Tikiman-"Jahman"--G-Stone
    If you know Peter Kruder's work with Fauna Flash as Voom:Voom, then
    this new 12" from Kruder & Dorfmeister's G-Stone imprint is no
    surprise. Fellow Austrian Stefan Mörth (aka Stereotyp) delivers a
    leftfield dancefloor killer with vocal assistance from the legendary
    Tikiman. Imagine the hardest of the hardcore ragga beats, dubbed and
    re-grooved Vienna style, topped off with solid toasting and a
    developing acid line ala Woody McBride. A wicked preview of the
    forthcoming LP.
