We’ve been following Casino Times for quite some time now. Having already impressed with their solid releases for labels such as Wolf Music, Futureboogie, Permanant Vacation, and their own Casino Edits imprint, the London-based duo of Nicholas Church and Joseph Spencer are now gearing up for the release of their debut LP, “Familiar Circles”. Set to drop on April 11th via longtime label home Wolf Music, the new record finds Casino Times expanding their sound even further, delivering ten tracks of lush and subtle deep house. Our first taste from the upcoming album comes in the form of “What (Miracle Beat)”, a finely crafted tune drenched with dreamy pianos. Exciting times!
Pre-order the “Familiar Circles” LP here.

Here, we have for you Thomalla’s six-plus-minute track “Funfair”, a groove-filled tune, drenched in summertime vibes. Blast it above.
