rawax proudly welcomes alexander dorn aka credit 00 to the rawax family!
back in the days at the west-saxon highlands there was a missile. which marked the starting point. when credit 00 saw the legendary rocket rise on tetris’ final screen. it was the first time he became aware of electronic music at all. since then it actually hasn’t changed that much. he keeps pushing that buttons that belong to the impressive pool of music machines towered up next to his bed. after moving to dresden in 2000 to study fine arts. his passion for synthesizers and drum machines got nurtured through visits of dresden’s club-canalisation. he quickly made himself a name as a dj. who is just doing his own thing and got popular for that reason. as a part of the idealfun-crew he started hosting parties always in the twilight zone between legal and illegal. this led to “robo dance”. dresden’s only and (also for some other reasons) best electro club night featuring guests like dmx krew. luke eargoogle or imatran voima. the track credit made with randy barracuda of imatran voima has probably been created some time after the show. apparently. randy was not in good shape anymore and so “lebensraum” unmistakably bears credit’s hallmarks. for his own music he’s inspired by cannibal movies. number theory and birds. still. his music is not easy to pigeonhole. after all. he loves synth wave. electro. afro. kraut. kosmische. disco. italo. miami bass and other proto stuff – a lot of machine music.

murphy jax delivers a fresh full length lp entitled *teleport: echo city* via the frankfurt based chiwax imprint.
murphy jax. over the past few years. has been steadily building up a back catalogue of solid electronic workouts. delivering content for the likes of clones jack for daze series. hypercolour. exploited and turbo.jaxs style meanders through a variety of styles. ranging from low-slung. chuggy grooves through to straight up chicago inspired house rhythms. always keeping the production intriguing and melodic. here murphy joins the chiwax roster (a sub-label of rawax. also running the dubwax and housewax labels). alongside heavy hitters like gemini and perseus traxx.
with releases under a range of pseudonyms (orpheus. sir leon greg. nite vision) and support for his previous explorations of depth coming from the likes of john heckle. dj deep. aroy dee. chicago skyway and steffi to name but a few. once again perseus traxx unashamedly shows his nature on this release. thoughts. feelings and emotions are by far the most important influences on music. and capturing moments then translating into a musical form he once again documents the more personal elements of his life. taking you deep. perseus weaves a rich tapestry of emotions and desires using heavily weighted bass tones and skipping percussion that thread together with expansive strings and pads. these are married with more detailed melodies and modulated tones that shimmer in and out of the psyche as he uses analogue boxes and their warmth like a loom. this collection of music ranges from the deep and dreamy. to total transcendence within steady dance floor rhythms clothed in a warm yet spacious fabric of sound. deep house. sometimes with a real sense of urgency that juxtaposes with it is inherent flights of fancy.
after their much lauded double pack on boe recordings. gaining support right across the board from djs such as ben sims. dj deep and doc martin. to name but a few. nite visions second outing arrives via the meteorically rising chiwax label. with a slew of releases under their belts. craig stainton (mantra. myriadd. acid phreex) and nigel rogers (perseus traxx. orpheus. sir leon greg) have once again combined their knowledge and love for warm synth tones.

this release was born of a cross country trip with an 808 drum machine by thomas ragsdale aka winter son. alongside jozef k. resident of famed manchester and ibiza clubnight sankey. as they join perseus traxx to hammer electricity out of machines. with itʼ...s rim shots and claps and other transistor rhythms reverberating across vast distances of space. side a is stripped back and deep from the outset. pushing forward as scattered tones. arpeggiations and disjointed voices leave their trails vanishing from perception. side b tightens up from the previous reverbs and throws acid into the mix. as the two join perseus traxx and the sound becomes more raw and urgent as the three of them jam on their chosen machines.
