Jimi Tenor and Nicole Willis will release an album called Enigmatic in July.1 Comment
The husband-and-wife duo have recorded the LP as Cola & Jimmu, and will put it out through their jointly run Herakles label. Though this will be their first output under that name, the pair have a long history of collaboration: Tenor (real name Lassi Lehto) contributed the horn arrangements on two Willis & The Soul Investigators LPs, and they co-wrote the "Call Of The Wild" track from Tenor's 2000 album for Warp Records, Out Of Nowhere.
The pair have labelled Enigmatic as a "deep house revival" record, with a press release claiming they drew inspiration from "Bobby Konders releases on NuGroove [and] Yellow Magic Orchestra's "Firecracker," with vocal styles comparable to Gwen Guthrie and CeCe Peniston." It features Tenor's own flute, saxophone and drum programming, while Willis lends her vocals and works on production.

Marcellis will release his debut album, I Am Woman, through Millions of Moments.4 Comments
Prior to 2012, the Dutch producer had just one solo EP to his name: Dry Delivery, which was released on Dutch imprint Black Label in 2004. Then he made a comeback of sorts in 2012, with two appearances on German label Workshop—one full solo EP and a reissue of 2004's "Come And Boogie" on a split 12-inch. I Am Woman therefore will be his most significant musical offering to date, though at six tracks it's pretty short by album standards. There are two guest appearances, with Fabian and Son Dexter featuring on "You" and "Donnie" respectively.
In an interview that accompanied his recent RA podcast, Marcellis said the tracks on I Am Woman were made roughly between 2005 and 2008. When contacted by RA, Millions Of Moments label boss Steffen Laschinski was hesitant to commit to an exact release date, but it's believed to be scheduled to come out later this summer. You can listen to snippets of the album over at Marcellis's SoundCloud page.

The following night he'll be in Cork, before heading to Bristol for a gig on May 31st with Sensate Focus and Mika Vainio.

Dubby techno purveyor Fenin has a new album due for release next month called Heartware.2 Comments
The Hamburg-born, Berlin-based artist's production history stretches back more than a decade: aside from appearing on Echocord and Dock Records (he runs the latter alongside the brothers Lars and Gunnar Hemmerling), he's a fixture at Shitkatapult, which has featured artists like Apparat, Anders Ilar, and Cristian Vogel over the years. Heartware will be his fourth full-length for the label, and the first since 2010's Mixes And Maxis. The ten-track album is billed as "developing towards an ambient mood, rather than dancefloor mood." A couple vocalists, Poly and Wyanna Friedrich, make guest appearances.
On Sunday, June 9th, a release party will be thrown in Berlin at Suicide Circus's Sunday Social night. Along with Fenin, who will play live, Shitkatapult label mate Daniel Meteo and Leipzig's Map.ache are confirmed.

German jocks Robert Babicz and Marc Romboy will both head to Australia at the end of this month.
The two artists will represent Systematic, the label which Romboy founded and which Babicz has released a large chunk of his output on (indeed his next album will come out via the imprint in June.) Their first stop will be in Melbourne on May 31st for an Electric Owl gig at Brown Alley. The following afternoon, Romboy pops up to Brisbane on his own to play an Ulterior boat party from 12:30 to 5:30 PM, before reuniting with his labelmate later that night at Sydney's Chinese Laundry, where the two will again share headline duties.
Babicz will then go on to play two more shows by himself the following weekend, the first being at Shape Bar in Perth on June 7th, and the second being a collaborative effort between Ulteroir and Auditree on the 8th at The Met in Brisbane, also featuring Rich Curtis, Scott Walker and Christopher Brooks.

Maxmillion Dunbar is set to play his first Australian shows next month.
The American artist has been releasing music both solo and as one half of Beautiful Swimmers since 2008, the same year he established his Future Times imprint. His second album, House Of Woo, dropped on New York's RVNG Intl. back in February of this year and was described by RA's Aaron Coultate as "a potent exploration of sound." Now following the LP's release, Dunbar will make his maiden voyage down south, kicking off with a show at Sydney's Goodgod Small Club on June 15th, at a night co-presented by local crew Pelvis and online radio show Noise In My Head. From there he heads to Gilkison's Dance Studio in Perth on June 21st, before making his way to Melbourne on the 22nd, where Bamboo Musik will be partying down at The Mercat Basement.
Tickets to the Sydney and Melbourne shows are available here on RA.

Sunset Sound System will hold their Sunset Island event on June 9th, along with a Memorial Day special this Sunday.
Every June since 2009, the San Francisco-based party takes over the manmade Treasure Island just north of the city for a day-long event that goes from noon until dusk. This year's bill is headed up by a live set from Detroit heavyweights Octave One, along with another live performance from Tevo Howard. Minneapolis techno selector DVS1 will spin, while San Francisco locals Galen, Solar and J-Bird are tasked with the opening duties. There will be art installations and performance art around the island as well as BBQ areas.
But before that goes down, Sunset will hold a Memorial Day long weekend party. Taking place this Sunday at Cafe Cocomo and starting in the afternoon, DJ Deep and Kyle Hall will headline. Galen, Solar and J-Bird are again billed for this one, along with three more Bay Area DJs: Deron Delgado, Tasho and Sweet P.
Tickets for Sunset Island are available on RA.
