what does a rave sound like the next day? the strobe lights in a dark warehouse, the pounding kick, the blur of ecstatic faces lead to a morning-after emptiness, all fade into memories of the friends you once had. on ode, tin man (proper name johannes auvinen) explores this feeling, offering tracks which possess an exhausted joy, the aural equivalent of the stretch of time beginning when the last record is played and stretching on towards the doleful contemplation of last night’s unmade sheets. appropriately, tin man’s melancholic dance music is more club-ready than ever.

this marks the tenth release for absurd and for the momentous occasion pablo bolivar has delivered an ep soaked with dubbed out grooves. pablo has developed his growing songwriting talents crafting songs into atmospheric soundscapes brimming with ideas, energy & texture. absurd recording artist alex krueger under his tigerskin guise steps in and dresses things up with and awesome nu groove inspired piano riff.
asd008 sees the return of alex krueger and a welcome one at that! this oneÆs 5 tracks deep (including a digital exclusive) and includes a pair of fine remixes from londoner-in-berlin, mark henning, ôblasted bitchö is tigerskin at his best. the title cut is a feast of sonic trickery, with sounds playing off each other beautifully to create a wide, dense soundscape which, paired with clipped percussion, clever dancefloor arrangement, evil laugh & crude vocal sample this one delivers tough. henning, a man known for his abilities with sound design himself, takes a darker route with his interpretation which, while still driving, is more of a heads down late night affair û riddled with oddball delays and some unnerving vox efx. ôwhat theö takes a turn to the darkside, moody, sharp, reveb laden and pulsing, the track is real heavy business watch out for that unholy belgian hardcore synth riff a la ômentasmö, thereÆs a real æmomentÆ in there. to round off the original cuts. responseö continues seeing tigerskin provide a straighter groove but one which displays some sterling keyboard work and strong break. finally, henning provides another remix of the title track as the digital only addition all too important these days. futuristic deep, tech-house is about as close as a description anyone needs for this superb final piece of an equally superb package.
the zentrale randgruppe ep features 2 original tracks from the lucerne boys. their deep & cinematic grooves have been remixed by the almighty afrilounge, who ve turned in 2 nice dubby flavoured mixes of >frijoles< while jens bonds driving remix of >deep sea diver< gives the track a more big room feel. a well rounded package to kick off the debut release from the swiss duo
