Round One
I'm Your Brother

Here's a stone-cold classic for you. Round One's 'I'm Your Brother' is a legendary house cut which uplifts with its deep, Chicago house grooves. The single includes 3-tracks: the club version, an edit, and a remix. 

Round Five (featuring Tikiman)
Na Fe Throw It

The Main Street Records drops work like so - though the artist names change from release to release, all of the label’s records were made by the duo of Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus (Basic Channel) in the 90's. While most of the stuff they put out on Main Street shifted the emphasis of the duo’s dub techno style towards house and garage, 1999’s Round Five is the closest the pair ever got to actual doing dub music. ‘Na Fe Throw It’ is a downtempo and brooding tune made all the more moody by the vocals of Tikiman (Paul St. Hilaire).

Round Three (featuring Tikiman)
Acting Crazy

Great news for deep house fans - Main Street Records are reissuing all of their classic club wedges. 1996's Round Three saw Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald join forces with Tikiman, an artist we’d come to know better as Paul St. Hilaire. Hilaire’s slinky, vaguely Tricky-style vocals only add to the psychedelic haze of ‘Acting Crazy’. An instrumental and edited version are also included on the Acting Crazy EP.

Round Two
New Day

Back in the 1990’s Basic Channel were reinventing the wheel by fusing club rhythms and dub textures to create what we now know as dub techno. However, BC wasn’t the only thing that the duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald were up to at that point - they found time to extrapolate the style out to deep house and garage on their sporadic Main Street Records drops. ‘New Day’ (it’s vocal edit, shortened version and dub) is one of the prime examples of the style and well worth the reissue. The duo were going by number of releases for their artist names at this point, hence why the New Day EP was released under the moniker Round Two
