its time to deliver the second ep from adana twins latest mix compilation and with this one we set the focus to the more organic and off kilter leanings from lehar, sbth, acid pauli, musumeci and stereocalypse. kicking things off is italys lehar with his super slick ‘blue wolf where robust percussions culminate in a potent groove laying the foundation for lush sonic melodies that transport you into uniquely sublime spaces. sbth follows with the exceptionally unique ‘4w1r6 where they forgo the standard four-to-the-floor approach and employ a distinguished and uncommonly unique 3/4 time signature to full effect creating a swelling and brooding number assuring a definite, clear memory long after it ends. flipping to the b-side we see the renowned acid pauli in top form as he relies heavily on thick organic percussion and plush musicality with his ‘greetings from orgonon before switching gears as musumeci delivers a stunner with ‘invaders where past meets present as disco, techno and house all meet in one harmonious culmination. to round out the ep, stereocalypses ‘jubeelee! is an expertly crafted venture into the modern techniques of infectious afro-house concluding an extremely well rounded ep showcasing the diversity of adana twins selection and diversity.
sanft schimmernde house tracks, und ein magischer remix, definitiv eine peak-time bombe von musumeci & lehar. italian dodi palese is a helpless vinyl addict: if it sounds good, he buys it. collecting for most of his life, he soaks up anything he can then uses these records to speak to his audience in whatever way suits. growing up with a father who ran a radio station is what installed this eclectic ethic in him, and it set him in good stead from the off. for many years dodi was core resident at casablanca (rip) in southern italy, where he would often spread his musical wings through funk, jazz, soul, afro, disco, house and techno for up to eight hours a night. it was an important learning curve that means he is now able to take a dance floor’s hand and lead it on an unpredictable and rewarding journey through sound that defies the usual categorisations. in the studio, dodi focusses on following his instincts and getting lost in the moment: he makes music designed for dancing, and music that veers from afro-funky house to deep and supple minimal techno for the late night hours. it is slick, original stuff with real feeling imbued in the compelling grooves. dodi also curates his own two labels what ever not, together with dan mela, and engrave ltd, with musumeci. they naturally have a broad outlook that takes in raw four-four, afro, electro and techno, and call upon a mix of artists who are well established as well as hot rising stars.
incepted just three years after the beginning of the kompakt venture in 2001, it s safe to say the speicher series holds a very special place in both the heart of the label and its audience s. taking the helm for the 102nd instalment in the catalogue (and the first speicher to feature 3 tracks) we find an eclectic squad of producers triangulating from all corners of the globe but united by their boundless science of the groove. longtime friends turned studio companions, enzo elia (of balearic gabba soundsystem fame) and musumeci join forces for the first time on the unfaltering late night hip-swayer gothic safari , kicking things off with a relentless deep dancefloor epic à la Âme.
