dalmata daniel continue with their inspired pairing of sonics and personalities on their seventh release (1st part of their split series) to date courtesy of dutch producer betonkust and budapest-based hardware techno fiend Új bála. as much as both differ in their geographical roots – holland and hungary, respectively, at first glance (or listen), their sound also ventures into different sonic territories. 1080p and pinkman-affiliate betonkust delivers vintage-tinged electronics – most prominently on his -ferenc s escape- – while Új bála digs deeper into the basement and unravels his analogue acid and badass beats. his -the piggy-bank deal- even touches upon oriental flavours. on the other hand, the music on this ep is buoyant and joyful, a welcome antidote to the gloom and doom that s not only been prevalent in the world around us, but also in too much music of the last few years.
dalmata daniel s next up is a collaboration with the bristol-born „weirdo disco guy- antoni maiovvi and also a contribution of heinrich dressel who is an unavoidable column of rome s electronic music scene. maiovvi s pleasure model project is all about youth – replaced by blade runner-esque replicas. his first release under this moniker was „kendo dynamics- on 100% silk in 2016. it aimed for presenting a persuasive world of fiber optic paranoia and technoid effacement. dd006 is the next level of the concept and the first time on vinyl. the tracks are driven by the characteristic haggard drum machine s sound on side a with a melancholic or dark synth themes what becomes a dreamy melody in the „prism riot- on side b. the remix by heinrich dressel is a turn back directly into the darkness, but it is faster and more like a film soundtrack with his own characteristics, of course. the whole ep has a strong vintage mood and sound. it can be said that update 1.1 is definitely dystopian, coming from the future of our past.
on its third vinyl release dalmata daniel presents five originals of j.mono with an additional remix made by dj overdose. hailing from east-central hungary s small town lajosmizse, lori keresztes is the introverted songcrafter-synthjammer mastermind of the budapest based underground favourite wedding acid group trio.
the 05 poly 800 loop ep was born in the name of the dutch-hungarian friendship when dj overdose collaborated with the budapest based record label dalmata daniel, and hungarian acts, s olbricht & 12z. a wide range of styles release from dark and mid-tempo to hard-hitting electro. just how we like it from mister model man. the ep also features two remixes both of which are complete reworks of the originals. s olbricht (farbwechsel, opal tapes, lobster theremin) transformed path to wrath into a dark abstract techno wave that manages to end up light and romantic. meanwhile 12z, the newest mascot of nicolas jaar s other people label have made an experimental symphony from be(h)anger and this pathos covers the whole essence of this ep.
dalmata daniel continue their work with the 7th release in the main flow, and this time they assigned the new experiment to the teslasonic lab. in this research, teslasonic examined the case of “quantum paradox” with the help of another well-known scientist: the hacker.
new years deal - dalmata daniel presents it’s own second release from the japan based producer 99letters. he has been active for 8 years now and his several music came out on labels such as french house série limitée and british techno label seagrave.
his new material the ‘untold future’ is a hardware based, dynamic and solid four tracks ep which includes a dub version from ‘neo life’ by the young german newfound trp, who’s debut ep was released earlier this year by the lo-fi bearer lobster theremin.
