ltd 2019 repress , black vinyl- the next acid record and the thirs installment of the acid seduction series is finished ! this time influenced by heckmann s japan tours, friends, fans and the ever on-time high tech train shinkansen :-) and a very nice coincidence, the train we took to kyoto one day was called nozomi 303 !

limited 2019 repress , black vinyl- no need to say much about thomas p. heckmanns silent breed project, that turned, twisted, smashed and rocked big time in the 90s and into the new millenium ! acid fucker is still a must at every decent acid rave, sync in crashed the dummies of the german trainspotters
ltd 2019 repress , black vinyl - for all the acid that is coming out through this so-called -acid revival- i was somehow missing the good old hook of the 90s acid-techno tracks. after countless requests to do some new acid again it finally clicked with me and i had this - in my opinion - great acid hook to jump along to for the acid to the future track. i really love this one and it could ve been big in the 90s i guess...so hopefully this will click with the listeners also today :-) acid funk and acid jaxx pretty much speak for themselves and are funky groovin acid tracks with a more modern touch mixed with the old vibe flavour. machine banger is definitely on the harder side and was done for ferox this is acid... nothing else- va compilaton on kobayashi.hands up and have fun... we love and release on vinyl !

ignorance is sometimes a bliss, an attitude and a in this case, ignørance is also a project. these days - when it s more about name dropping, balling, image, airs and graces - it´s time for something different. ignørance is a dedication to bring back the focus just on music without the fuzz. no shameless self promotion or boast. this is why the artist behind the project wants to keep his name secret and you focused on the music and sound

jesper dahlback is one of swedens leading djs/ producers with a lengthy back catalogue to his name, including co-production on two tiga albums, the hugg and pepp project with cousin john dahlback, and remixes for the likes of rex the dog, zoo brazil, arnaud rebotini of black strobe, thomas p heckman, robyn, the knife, and depeche mode. jesper has music in his genes, but it was the musical movements in detroit, berlin and london that inspired him to start producing techno, back in 1991 in his bedroom studio. completely hooked, by 1993 he d formed the stockholm-based globe studios together with peter benisch and adam beyer (following a chance meeting on the train to love parade?) and has worked there ever since. in 1996 jesper started the imprint, blank, mainly for his own material, and simultaneously launched joint venture dk with thomas krome - one of the first labels in sweden with a techno house crossover approach! in addition to making music for various techno labels around the world and working with planet rhythm, jesper met up with swiss-born stephan grieder who had just started the svek label. the duo started to experiment with different sounds, drawing on house musics roots, utilising vocals and acoustic instruments. jesper now describes his sound as >ranging between the analogue sounds of the roland sh101 and the precision mathematics of my computer. i m a researcher and developer of unheard sounds! since the founding of globe studios, i have always been looking for new ways to bend the rules and test the unknown. when i dj, i just play my own productions blending old classics with new unreleased demos.< a producer first and foremost, jespers dj dates find him weaving a soundscape of his productions, remixes and collaborations with new material at every gig, as well as musical elements and sounds worked through the set. one of his favourite current ventures is his part in jori hulkkonens acid symphony orchestra.
afu limited welcomes alex long to it s artist catalogue and he starts with two slammin and cool technotracks with ultra trippy vocals! there is not much need to say anything about these tracks, just listen and enjoy the trip through the space age with a fast beating heart! since he was young, he has always been impressed by the sounds of the synths, electro pop and later on acid house. in the beginning of the 90ies, when the slovenian electronic scene was still in the making, he was a regular guest in the legendary k4 and palma in slovenia. he was taken further into the world in 1998 when he took his first steps behind the turntables and he has been producing music since 2004. since then, he has had quite a few releases and remixes for different record labels. he has dj gigs with huge names of the electronic scene and in large festivals in slovenia and became the official slovenian hero of the future in 2007 at the disconautica festival.he spends much of his time in his studio, where his thoughts are converted into notes and melodies, and as he often states, he finally found a style that suits him and always finds a challenge in. what is that style? he doesn t like to be defined by a specific music style, as he prefers and is influenced by many different genres of electronic music. alex long is definitely a name we will hear of in the future!
