    Sorry, no archive available for this one.

    Pick of the Week: A compilation out of Sweden recently caught my ear.
    Named in honour of a popular and innovative Stockholm club night, Good
    People came out late last year via the Flora & Fauna / King Syndrome
    Sounds labels. I just discovered it a coupla weeks back, thanks to Night
    and Day / Select Distribution, responsible for bringing these chilled
    dubby, techy grooves into Canada. The bass is deep and smoothly rugged
    (generally speaking, that would be an oxymoron, but dubheads know what I
    mean), and the tracks are solid. Check for more info,
    as well as for word of the second Good People comp as well as a
    full-length from Bacuzzi, one of the standout artists featured here.

    Pick of the Week: Madrid de los Austrias' Amor, a super-yummy debut

    sweets are your thing, this is a must check. Out soon on Austria's
    Sunshine Enterprises, a label, studio and series of club nights headed
    up by Zanuste. Distributed in Canada by Fusion 3.
