Since their debut Neukoln 12” on Sabotage Records back in 2010, the Italian production duo known as The Analogue Cops have made their mark on the House & Techno sphere with their no-holds barred all-out analogue approach to producing dance-floor oriented tracks. Made up of Marieu and Lucretio, who both have solid solo back-catalogues of their own spanning the likes of Hypercolour, DeepMoves and their own co-run Restoration Records, their cumulative experience always shines through on their collaborative efforts.

Their latest offering comes on the renowned Dame-Music’s 7 year anniversary V/A release, where the duo join Milton Bradley, Boo Williams and label boss Bloody Mary for an acid drenched affair to celebrate the label’s journey so far. All three tracks on the release pack serious heat but our highlight was undoubtedly ‘Shonen Jump’ (which you can stream below) by The Analogue Cops. Driving kicks and sharp percussion grab you from the get go before a wonky acid line teases in out of nowhere over some euphoric pads, everything combining together into a real hands-in-the-air moment.

To celebrate the release we invited The Analogue Cops to contribute to our Tracks Of The Day feature, and they’ve provided us with four tracks that really summarise their view on what works on a dancefloor; including some of their own solo productions, one of their own collaborative tracks and a certified classic from Jeff Mills.

“Marieu’s dancefloor bomb on its last Hypercolour release (In Monkey Suits), fuses the euphoria of the 90s dance productions with a cutting edge bass line and a futuristic approach to drum mixing.”

“Released on the fresh Croatian label born from the most beautiful electronic festival on the Dalmatian shores. This track sounds just as like The Analogue Cops live at the festival: relentless acid lines over solid beats, evocative pads and funky hooks. Machines Power!”

The Last Dungeon

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

“Originally written by Shinichi Sakamoto in 1989 as the soundtrack for the first and the last stage of “Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap” for the Sega Master System video console, it has been re-produced by Lucretio with analogue drums and state of the art of digital synthesisers and is released on its own label Machines State. Not an easy track to play, but at the right moment it can become the real anthem of a dancing video game generation.”

“This timeless tune from Jeff Mills on Tresor Records represents Techno at its best. Short, minimalist, destructive, but at the same time soulful and joyful. Something very different from the modern funkless beats that some people call “techno”.”
