Kiss Me Corpid
There's a crop of really decent netlabels springing up all over the shop, offering up their artists' tracks for free. It never fails to amaze me quite how many outlets there are for new music at the moment, and it's admirable that there are producers out there willing to forego payment in order to get their tunes heard. One such label is Germany-based Corpid, purveyors of all things house, techno and electro, with the inevitable (but not unwelcome) whiff of minimalism all over its extensive wares. Pick of the bunch is Drei Farben House, whose Fashion EP is a two-tracked, tight tech-house celebration of, er, clothesmaking. But fear not, the music is far from the insipid moron's electroclash that such a subject might suggest; instead you get tough rhythms iced with serene ambient effects and dislocated, acoustic guitar sounds. Not bad at all, and a fucksight better than some of the shit I've wasted eight quid on in my life. Head to the Corpid site to get the B-side and have a mosey around, and for more info on Drei Farben House head here. Here's the A-side, 'Wearability'.....

P.S. It pains me to say it - but new Big Brother is superb. 'High spec bitch', anyone?
