Samuel van Dijk (Mohlao, Multicast Dynamics) is back with a new 12'' on AC Records presenting a selection of his finest material recorded as VC-118A. 'Vaxna' and 'Sepia' show his deep and futuristic sound, with string laden melodies, pads and solid drummachine programming. On the flipside '25h' is an aquatic track with melodic sequences, modulating chords and sparse textures. The EP finishes off in style with 'Versicolor', an emotive electro jam with clever arrangements and immerse sounds. Limited to 200 copies.*
Dan Davies aka Ossia is a mainstay of the Bristol scene. He runs labels like Fuck Punk, No Corner and Peng Sound, and he's a member of Young Echo. His Blackest Ever Black debut triumphantly grafted the industrial experimentalism of Richard H Kirk onto West Country bass culture. “Control”, his second Berceuse Heroique, goes deepest yet; pithier but more widescreen, with fresh touches of jungle and bashment to its dread spirituality. The dubs in particular are a bleak treat. This release will be spiffily presented on 180g vinyl, with a natty poster designed by Alex Digard, from the Tape Echo crew.
Peter Michael Hamel emerged from the 70s Krautrock scene dreaming of “the blue flower growing between the milestones on the road to a future world-music”. A truly visionary artist who worked and studied with John Cage, Morton Feldman and Terry Riley, his 1980 Colours of Time LP - an epic, sprawling, 22-minute saga - was hailed by The Guardian’s Rob Fitzpatrick as “an absolute masterpiece of skull-bursting, synth-led ambient minimalism”. Thirty six years on, Astral Industries reinterpret Hamel's original vision with remixes from two contemporary heavyweights - Wolfgang Voigt and Rod Modell (aka Deepchord). Each expansive interpretation invites you to step outside of reality and into an alternative imagination of Hamel's future world, spiralling into the colours and slowly out of time itself. Original artwork by Theo Ellsworth and a massive thanks to Peter Michael Hamel & Eckart Rahn.
Following on from March's Shlømo remix package featuring Donato Dozzy, Bambounou, Shlømo and label boss Kennedy Smith, Bright Sound's second release of 2016 will new a brand new EP from Sweden's Andreas Tilliander. With his releases on his own Repeatle imprint and his TM404 alias's hardware-driven techno featuring on Skudge White and Kontra-Musik, Tilliander is among Sweden's most versatile talents working right now. His arrival on Bright Sounds is of a piece with BSRX 004, last year's reissue of fellow Swede Henrik Johansson's 1997 EP as Smyglyssna. As with Johansson's record, Tilliander's Stettin Libau EP explores slower tempo techno, locating the moments of space and energy in between its rhythmic structures. This search is most keenly observed in 'Knapp Ledsyn', with its ever-shifting sonic landscape melting away at various points to reveal its unusual, skeletal beats and hidden melodic details, while the EP title track and 'Nybliven Lots' apply that approach to what might at first be a traditional dub techno template, yet still offering further small moments of off-beat character. Completing the release is a 'Detox Operation' remix of 'Knapp Ledsyn' from Nonplace Records chief Burnt Friedman, in which the German veteran strips things down to a gentle patter of drums overlaid with suggestive flashes of the original's rich atmospheric elements.
Hot on the heels of killer releases by label heads Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves, the latest Visionquest release sees the label turn its head to Deadbeat aka Scott Monteith. The Berlin based Montrealeler has been putting his own spin on house and techno for some time now, putting his stamp on esteemed labels such as Cynosure, Echocord and Wagon Repair. The Jacks EP continues his fine tradition of putting out discerning fare, as he conjures up a new EP package that remixes his classic track, Mecca Drum Track (originally released on Wagon Repair), from 2008. Striking in its many intricate and delicate production wares, it’s a polished effort from the outset.
The digital version boasts an extra remix by Architectural. Its broken rhythms, slow tempos, atmospheres and reverberations make this rework an ideal opening track for intelligent techno sets."Rotar" keeps the slow tempos and the liquidness of the drums, adding some flanged percussion and using once more a chord-based synth to keep the flow. Tensal is the man in charge of these remakes. The first one, totally different from the original, has a compact kick and heavy subbass action, tensioned hats, filtered chords and continuous cabasa rhythms that transform a mental track into a club stomper. The digital bonus remix is closer to the original, on a more dub techno approach: round kicks, reverb spaces, growing chords and echo synths.
The ever enigmatic Deepchord makes a most welcome return to Soma with this, the first single to be taken from this latest full length, Ultraviolet Music. Three beautiful slices have been cut from the album to form this truly outstanding single and shows Deepchord return to a straight up mix of heady, cerebral dub techno infused with more solid rhythms.
Helsinki based House brother Trevor Deep Jr. – extended part of the n s y d e family. On a serious Dub mission. Sublime acidic baseline and delay loops reaching out into eternal space. Captured and ennobled on good old analog reel to reel tape. Trevor knows how to make any dancefloor just a better place.
After some studio time getting used to new equipment, the duo Salz have have made a journey with Nefelibata into massive basslines and acoustic drums bringing together what they call the dubbing of sounds from the original which they instantly fell in love with. The reshape of Silk is an exclusive vinyl version in a more classic Salz style as we know it, although it has been benefitting from the new equipment.
"Beyond the Clouds" was recorded from a live session near the heart of Detroit using hand crafted modular synthesizers, analog devices and custom made effects units. Remastered by Ron Murphy @ NSC Mastering, Detroit, USA shortly before he passed away, his memory will live in our hearts forever. In this Live version of cv313's classic, the modular recordings were separated, dissected in the mix and dubbed out with a litany of analog effects. During this performance there was a mystical element in the air, strobe lights, vaporous gas and electric dreams. A connection felt with the dancers, a groove beyond a groove, it is that magical essence of Japan. This was a night to remember, recorded live in Tokyo with love. During the closing moments, the ghostly ambiance faded, the smoke cleared and beyond the sequence was born. Remastered by Bazza @ Alchemy Studio, London. UK.
Deep’a & Biri’s Black Crow Records further expands its horizons with its seventh release, welcoming another new artist to the family following appearances by 2030, Aril Brihka, Hakimonu, Luke Hess, ROD, Inland and Markus Suckut. The Analog Roland Orchestra’s label debut follows the widely acclaimed 2030 EP and shares with it a widening of the label’s sonic scope to once again showcase Deep’a & Biri’s desire to reach beyond techno and explore ambient and cinematic musical textures. Michal Matlak’s Analog Roland Orchestra finds the Poland born & Berlin based producer in the conductor role among an array of classic electronic hardware, taking on the role of shaping & directing a free flowing sound that moves across genres, whether in a studio or live setting. His previous releases for labels including Ornaments, Rotary Cocktail Recordings and Pastamusik have seen the project indulge in an array of sounds across the techno spectrum. ‘Aftermath II’ is no different, moving from the classic roots techno sounds of ‘Plant’ and ‘Father Detroit’, through the dub excursion of ‘Urei Dub’, to the cinematic, Boards of Canada & Tangerine Dream-recalling pair ‘Her’ and ‘Aftermath. For those with a taste for electronic music’s widescreen possibilities, TARO’s arrival on the Tel Aviv imprint will be a long term favourite.
The mix of Dub and Techno is not exactly new. However, JPatterson found a way to combine these genres in a way that checks all the boxes to be classified as fresh and exciting. His rustic Prog-a-Dub grooves burst with reckless danceability, the sound of his tumpet has an emotional intensity that simply doesn’t exist in the digital music domain. But the catchiest element of his track Elevator is yet another one: It’s his voice and its contagious casualness. The Dub Version of this track is a bright summer day turned into rhythm and melody. It gets even more exciting than this, as a hand-selected group of party heads from the Acker family has remixed Elevator. Timboletti turned it into a slow, delirious afterhour groove (digital only). Dole & Kom redesigned it into an understated anthem. And Mollono.Bass created an energetic rhythm environment for the weightless trombone that feels like it’s vibrating right in middle between the original and the Dub Version of Elevator.
Beat Pharmacy, Mikkel Metal, Deepnaut, Pulshar, Federsen. We are really proud and honored to present ESPECTRUM, a year-long effort to put together a compilation of the best dub techno. The idea was simple, but ambitious: ask some of our favorite artists for one track to epitomize dub techno.
We are proud to announce the double LP edition of echospace's phase90 project, lovingly remastered by Bazza (Abbey Road Studios/Thom Yorke) @ Alchemy Mastering, London. Features unreleased new material and beautiful silk screened metallic sleeves and art direction from the very talented Lindsay Todd of Firecracker Recordings & House Of Traps. The entire album was bounced down to 1/4" analog tape prior to remastering to preserve the integrity of the masters. This project was deeply inspired by the possessive quality of supernatural textures, field recordings and found sounds conducted at the Calvary Cemetery. There's something quite haunting in the underlying tone of these recordings, an ominous feeling not for the fainthearted. "Illuminati" celebrates the progression of the soul, a concept which stems from metempsychosis. The material on this album can be interpreted as sinistral--dark,, heavy due to the hardware and its currencies emitted by its source--the phase 90. An acidic dream of transliminality, this is the first Phase90 project to materialize in its essence, until now.
After one new EP from Coopers Kim Rapatti’s Dum Records is re-releasing some of his biggest classics on this douple A-side release. Mono Junk’s Channel B was first time on vinyl on Trope Records 1995 and Melody Boy’s Monotone Fantastique on Dum Records 1994 (DUM-014). Never ending grooves for you pleasure.
Arktapes whispers its papers from the southern hemisphere. His compositions make for ﬁne spaced out and atmospheric jams, strongly grounded in deadly grooves. A sweeping homage to the roots of our music genre, with a taste for novelty.
Jackson Lee & Ben Jenkins return to their roots. Equally influenced by Detroit warehouse parties & metaphysics of Middle-American industrial decay to advance Basic Channel / Deepchord blueprint, morphing dub sound into baroque acid dreamscape.
Limited Edition, 1 sided release with the lost D side of Deepchord's now classic "Electro Magnetic Dowsing" originaly appeared as 3 different 12' singles (side a, b, c) on Mike Huckaby's revered S Y N T H imprint out of Detroit. Played by RIcardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Omar S to Laurent Garnier. An absolute MUST for the heads!
Official re-edtion by Phil Week & Didier Allyne with Sunkiss aka David Alvarado. Released on Groove on in 1996 & hard to find these days. Apogee/Eclipse are deepest dub techno. Will appeal too all Basic Channel/Deepchord fans.
SNC's finely tuned balance of dancehall's party vibes and techno's machine rhythms brings with it the mood of the thick humid air and existential dread of tropical life. Sure to set fire to your local yard or discotheque.
Alan Backdrop's first EP on Enklav014. The third physical release for the italian label with Salko. Buried vaguely melodic ambiance grows and expands in the most surpising fashions within rigid structures. Side A comes with two tracks whose spine consists in upright, inflexible rhythmic phrases. While an atmosphere of echoing undefined notes that unfold onto the main pattern of Ch-x, the muddy, obscure bassline and the driving pulsation of Dp3 form an elastic cohesion, whose tension is released and dropped at crucial times in the most subtle and gentle way. On the B side, Meamb carries on with uprising stabbed chords through a less conventional rhythm leading the main theme, and Snit has a dark and distant sound with ever progressing percussions which rumble and float around a straight and decise beat. Ending Salko is a fast paced astounding combination of soft, evaporating but tight cymbals upon a one chord theme, led by a merciless sharp, stinging kickdrum.
The vinyl includes 3 original tracks characterized by raw techno sounds and solid atmospheres. On the A side 'Sonic Mood' produced alongside his friend Piegaja, is a massive peak time tune with an unexpected twist within the break to create a unique experience. The B-side opens with 'Uncompromised' that is another chunky, drum driven record. Laced with a cheeky melodic stab, the track is notoriously funky and will work well on the dance floor. The Ep closes with 'Running Fast Today', once again a strong powerful record with dark atmospheric synths that create a uncompromising mood.
This September will see Visionquest release ‘Selector’ from Luke Hess, coming accompanied with remixes from Delsin artist d5, label co-founder Lee Curtiss and Maher Daniel.Detroit artist Luke Hess has been one of the most celebrated acts coming out of the motor city over the past decade with an impressive back catalogue boasting material on Omar S’ FXHE, Carl Craig’s Planet E, Echochord and Kontra-Musik to name but a few. Here though we see Hess join the roster of Visionquest following recent output from Wareika, Vlad Caia, Tuccillo and Mirko Loko.Title cut ‘Selector’ takes the lead and Luke Hess delivers his signature energy fuelled dub-led style with spiralling stab sequences, electronic jazz-tinged synth licks and a robust rhythmic drive. Delsin’s d5 steps up next on remix duties, delivering a similarly dubbed-out aesthetic while introducing glitchy arp’s, smoothly evolving string lines and a more refined drum style.Opening the latter half of the package is Visionquest’s very own Lee Curtiss taking on ‘Selector’ with a contrasting approach, dropping the tempo to create a slow burning feel with bumpy percussion, chugging bass tones and sporadic sweeps. Maher Daniels closes with the final remix, delivering a less-is-more interpretation focusing on intricately evolving atmospheric in the depths of the record while a sturdy rhythmic foundation carries the groove.
A crisp-biscuit Bristol label, opening its account with a deadly brace of stripped-back dub techno. First off, Peverelist and Andy Mac together, following up their Trilogy Tapes debut with an organic, late-night roller; and then a killer AM on the flip, mesmeric and bumping.
Over The Mountains is Segue’s second album on Silent Season, a follow up to Pacifica which was released to much praise in 2013. Over The Mountains continues the course in true Segue fashion with an album full of dubbed out atmospheric grooves and deep organic structures. The sound is consumed by nature—immense, enveloping nature in Jordan Sauer’s never-ending quest to capture the sublime. The record feels like a nostalgic dream swirling in melodies and buzzing with nature sounds. Over The Mountains is honourably another awe-inspiring album of lush landscapes by this Canadian artist.
For the second effort on his very own Oblique imprint, Ben Buitendijk returns to the sound he's only showcased through his well received Promised Land (Mosaic) and a recent remix through Subwax. This more dubby approach is the general thread in the sophomore Oblique release called ''Past and Present EP''. Generally, this release is threading into deeper territories than it's predecessor but is therefor revealing different sides of the label owner's taste that are maybe being underexposed thus far. ''Roots'' acts as a sublime opening track. Dramatic fx works are bundled together over a well built drum pattern that collides extremely well with the almost lava-esque bubbly sound of the delay laden synths that float throughout. ''Side Stepping'' is somewhat of a change in atmosphere. While maintaining the spacious yet dubby approach of the the opening track, ''Side Stepping'' has a lighter feel to it while the drums are thoroughly programmed underneath and the FX chains seem even more present than before. On the B side we find ''Apollo'' again a dubby stepper which evolves subtly into a more mean crawler that cleverly blends dramatic chords together with fragments of delayed stabs and panned artefacts. ''Near Mint'' serves as the ''Past And Present EP''s finale. A spacious cut that respects the overall feel of the EP whilst gently threading into a more otherwordly atmosphere which moves in perfect harmony with the buldging bass hit that sits underneath.
The reclusive artist has seen a lot of justified and overdue praise surrounding the reissue of his sole early release, the Ship Scope 12” which was originally issued by Berlin’s Chain Reaction label in 2001 and reissued by DDS last year, following on from the unexpected dispatch of his distinguished and brilliant Sprinkles-esque Butterfly Effect album.His new World LP will expand your preconceptions, coursing a beautifully louche vibe from the most minimal loops and motifs - the kind that one could play all day without ever tiring of hearing them.The supple, floating DX7 bass contours and vaporous jazz chords of Intro start up like some Chicago or NYC deep house classic lost in its own reverie, and could happily go nowhere for as long as it wants, before the rainy day piano house melancholy of World 1 promptly inverts that supple aesthetic with a fizzing, hazy sort of depth perception and World 2 switches up again to a sort of trim du momentum in stepping, swinging equilibrium, riding the groove like no other.Turn over and the lingering, slowed downstroke of World 3 sounds like it got waylaid from a 0PN session with Wolfgang Voigt, whilst World 4 jettisons the bass altogether to thizz and skip away in the highest registers with an intoxicatingly heady vein which makes the uniquely brittle but spacious breakbeat trip of World 5 so narcotically seductive.We hardly need to spell it out for you;- this is highly idiosyncratic, exceptional material, with warmest recommendations to anyone with a or taste for house and ambient electronica’s refined, soulful and experimental echelons.
The Escape series proudly presents the next slice of wax featuring 4 brilliant artists and their stunning sounds. First up is a fresh cut from the Americanborn veteran Elbee Bad, >Supa KewlTush & HarshFlying In The Wind< turns out to be the perfect title. And finally, Freund Der Famillie crafts a breathtaking journey into dub-tech territory. >Grand Rue< holds back in its delivery, slowly dripping onto itself and its true, brooding form.
-Freundlich II- is the follow up of Freund der Families -Freundlich- 12 which was released in 2014 on Telrae. The A-side track -Mash Up- is a deep setup of electronica. Somehow futuristic, alienated and claustrophobic. It could it be the soundtrack for
incl. Steve O'Sullivan RemixThe formation of London's 'Open Recordings' has finally arrived with its first EP 'Departed Emotions'. A thoughtful and submerged musical collection ranging from stripped back dub techno to driving minimal with the ingredients carefully combined by Open's 'Frazer Campbell' remixed by Mosaic's head crafter 'Steve O Sullivan' and Finest Hours top selector 'Onirik'. This new imprint builds excitment with this first addition of timeless music... looking forward to the future.
This highly anticipated double A-side 10” is the next chapter of Matt Edwards & Joel Martin's Quiet Village story, and sees the duo veer into a world poles apart from their cult 'Social Music/Change' 12” on Phonica White earlier this year which was lauded by the likes of Zip, DJ Harvey & Milo.Showcasing a more textured electronic dub groove, these pieces were both created during one of Matt and Joel’s rare Berlin studio sessions. Spending time soaking up the atmosphere of Germany’s 24-hour techno town, with the infamous ‘Hardwax’ record store at its epicenter, it is not surprising that QV weren’t inspired by the city’s metal machine music.“Whether it was a conscious decision or not, we definitely channeled the vibrations of ‘Rhythm & Sound’s’ rugged Space-Reggae and used this loose blueprint to experiment with sonic imagery rather than studio trickery. The results of these sessions yielded both the remix of ‘Bahadir’ and then our own ‘Untitled’ cut, of which we recorded several ‘versions’”.On closer inspection this release on Edwards' Pyramids Of Mars - the Rekids boss's outlet for experimental and non-dancefloor projects - is actually a natural progression from their psychedelic Balearic masterpieces like ‘Pillow Talk’ and ‘Too High To Move’. Since the beginning of their career Matt and Joel have always employed the techniques of Dub in their productions and feel there is no space for treading the safe and familiar path in their work.
For the first in a series of reinterpretations of material from Linkwood's superb Expressions album, Firecracker Recordings has turned to Chicago deep house veterans Ghosts of the Sky (AKA Perpetual Rhythms’ Chicagodeep and Taelue), and fast-rising machine abusers Nummer. The latter dive into an aquatic techno tip, turning the becalmed and melancholic "Love Lost" into a techno-tempo stroll through vintage Carl Craig chords, sweaty machine percussion, and yearning melodies. There's a warmer and heavier, if surprisingly stripped back, feel to Ghosts of the Sky's version of "Object", with spluttering electronics and sumptuous chords stretching out over a rich synth bassline and hissing, cymbal-heavy groove.
Riding high on the success of a second release that introduced A-Scott & Chad to the Constant Sound fold, the third instalment finds Burnski back in the saddle to offer up "Changes", getting into a more techno-oriented frame of mind without losing that warmth and playful sensibility he has made his own over the years. After strong remixes from Trus'me, Steve O'Sullivan and Cab Drivers on previous releases, Constant Sound 003 gives another opportunity for the label to call upon the finest in the business to reinterpret the original material. In keeping with the heads-down workout tones of Burnski's original, it makes perfect sense to invite an artist as accomplished as Deadbeat up for a remix. Scott Monteith has long been a stellar example of how to push dub techno in thrilling new directions and it shows on his version of "Changes". Kris Wadsworth has just as much to say for himself after years spent crafting heavyweight house and techno with a mercenary instinct matched by lashings of machine soul. He reduces the original track into a stripped down techno dub perfect for late at night. His remix will only be available on the vinyl. It's yet another step forwards for a label committed to delivering nothing but the highest quality house and techno for those who seek a touch more depth from their music.
Since the climate has slightly changed during the last years, its hard to talk about real winter in the northern hemisphere. However the world feels a bit colder these days. To keep your hearts warm, Etui Records has opened the winter camp again. Artists from Australia, Italy and Germany are delivering a musical fireplace of dub and deep techno. Can dub techno sounds happy? Of course! Melbournes Silver Ash opens the vinyl edition of this years Etui Winter Camp and spreads some dubby chord funk across the dancefloors with his Meranti. Dresden based Dandytracks of Vekton tell part 2 of their Dubstories About Us. On the flip side Etui Records label head Insect O. shows his love for hypnotic driven techno in his Kondor and new italian artist Drafted proves in his Ascending that Detroit Techno and Minimalism have been always a great combination. May the world feels a bit warmer with this. Etui Winter Camp 3 will be out as digital album inc. 11 tracks and special white vinyl edition incl. 4 tracks.
I didn't mind what she called me, what anybody called me. But this was the room I had to live in. It was all I had in the way of a home. In it was everything that was mine, that had any association for me, any past, anything that took the place of a family. Not much: a few books, pictures, radio, old letters, stuff like that. Nothing. Such as they were, they had all my memories and no one could disturb this private peace.
Primary Colours welcomes one of the dons of dub, owner of Echospace , Mr Stephen Hitchell, aka CV313 to the family. CV313 provides us with his Decaying Detroit Dub. A ten minute journey of synthesis and design, a masterpiece of analog machines and synthesisers in harmony and sequence. Deep, lost, layered textures and rhythms build to create a once off, totally unique piece of music that will be enjoyed by the most hardcore of listeners for many years to come. Primary Colours are proud to present their latest release Nyctophilia. Australian duo, Echo Inspectors, return with a track inspired by the darkness of a winters night. Cut from the same cloth as Eosophobia, Nyctophilia continues on with a brooding, deep and erie track. Hypnotic sounds flow in and out of one another while a deep bobbling bass and sharp percussive rhythms lock you in. Timeless.
After the striking debut release on Nothing Odd Recordings found label owner Sam Smith sitting comfortably alongside Baby Ford for an exploration of subliminal house and techno, NOR002 finds Smith donning the alias Monty The Fly and expanding on his own vision for stripped-down dance music brimming with psychoactive tendencies. Across the three tracks there is a diverse range of moods being drawn on, from the meditative to the mechanical, all fused together by what some might consider an obsessive eye for detail. There's meditation in the air in places, with mysterious pads and heavy splashes of reverb soaking out into some corners in the time-honoured dubwise spirit of transcendental electronic music. Elsewhere brushed percussion and disembodied vocals shape out a more sinister message, lending themselves to a sound world both immersive and disorientating in one fell swoop.
Informa Experiments Volume 2 continues with the same concept as the last, 4 artists submit a bank of sounds and from these sounds each artist composes a track. A simple idea that proves very effective. This time the contributors are Claudio PRC (Prologue), Takaaki Itoh (Wols), Ben Gibson (Chronicle) & Deepbass (Informa) Each version has come out very different but all have a beautifully analogous feel. Deep, pulsing hypnotic techno.
Ranges Is Back With A New Chapter Of Purest Dub Techno. Four Tracks Based On Reminiscent Chords And Melancholic Moods, Imagined And Modeled For Connoisseurs. Tape Processed And Pressed On 180g Vinyl Only.
this album - my first one - is a product of my own journey towards distance. my time-out at the other side of the atlantic ocean - 6 months in new york. this imagination and experience has filled me with positive energy. i found myself in a new situation full of self-determination and concentration (revive). In order to structure this idle space (empty quarter) for me i dedicated the early morning hours with a calm and alert mind to exclusively making music. no interruption, no distraction entered these bright morning hours (region luminous), during which this album was created. during this window i went on a musical expedition, i developed new ways of creating music and finally found the content and form of expression with which I wanted to fill this space (towards distance). my dearly beloved blueberry granola (layers & blueberries) gave me perfect energy for these early hours and served as inspiration for for the track of the same name. during this phase i wanted fully engage in the journey without looking too far ahead and without expecting anything too precisely. i tried to focus more on why i wanted to do what i did than how to do it.
incl. Remixes by Monomood + Insect O.Alessandro Crimi's Quantum Realm is the much-loved dub techno track appeared on the most recent Etui Winter Camp 2 compilation.Long term Etui Records label artist and Abstract Animal founder Monomood delivered 2 massive remixes for this track. With the first edit he turns the track into a floor orientated techno trip while his 2nd edit offers a more dub vibe with stunning echoes.On the flip side Switzerland based producer Alessandro Crimi shows his love for laid-back techno sound with his Space Cocktail. Etui Records label head Insect O. added some shuffling grooves, dub deepness and analogue flavor in his remix to work well on the dancefloor and even at the beach bar.
Both DJ Spider & Brendon Moeller have been sculpting their craft over the years and show no signs of ever slowing down. Each artist presents an original track and then a remix from each other. This split vinyl ep is the first of several to be released on Spider’s Sublevel Sounds label.
The Grasshopper Lies Heavy. A1, Gully rattles along at a brisk 135 bpm, a raw yet versatile DJ tool imbued with a sense of impending dance?oor mischief. The A2 Dun Kno then drops the pace down while pursuing a subtler, more melodic arc. On the ?ip, B1 Roy Batty carries with it its namesake’s sense of menace as its escalating synth stabs drive the track onwards. EP closer Harlyns Dub strips things down for the deepest track of the 12?, with FOLD’s love for dubbier elements of techno brought to the fore.
This will be a special Eclipse release. One of the most valued and respectable dub techno artists Atheus decides to stop producing dub techno tracks to explore the most introspective soundscapes of ambient and drone music, and this will be his final step into dub techno music. A special release remixed by the special and talented young producer Decoside. He worked the main theme Das Ende exploring the deepest side of his incredible skill in shaping sounds.
The vinyl opens with 'Perseverance' a slick slice of bass that writhes and twists around a syncopated core. On A2 'Temptation of Maya' seizes at the act of perception and what is captured is perfect for the mellow confusion of a Sunday morning. On the flip side the search for transcendence goes further with 'Beyond the Veil' which crackles towards a sense of enlightenment. The EP closes with a golden moment of contentment, 'Moksha'.
