alex krueger is ready for his next strike on dirt crew rec. the follow up to his excellent <push the patton< single is an absolute minimal killer, 3 quality tracks here and a different side of tigerskin for each taste. all tracks were produced with analogue equipment only which has become pretty rare these days ! the title track is a warm and reduced builder with an absolutely devestating guitar breakdown, people will remember this one for sure when they first hear it out on a big system. the second >wanted< is a typical tigerskin rave anthem, similar to his master hit >neontrance< this one is pure power on the dancefloor. the last track is more funky and has a great electro groove to it, this one has become a favourite in our sets over the last weeks and also features a beautiful break with great analogue sounds
supported by tom clark, sasse, 2000 and one, woody, paolo martini, 3 channels, adultnapper, dj naughty, garnier and many more.. mindforce is an extra special release we have put together for you. it features an excellent remix by kabale und liebe who is currently causing a big stir amongst the house community with his deep and dark minimal groovers, needless to mention his big hit mumbling yeah that was in the charts of almost every dj and became one of the key tracks last year. also his upcoming productions on the dutch remote area label are amongst our favourite tracks so we couldn’t resist to ask this guy to do an interpretation of a special track we made. mindforce is a bit different to the rest of the dirt crew output, we wanted to make a more reduced grooving dj tool that is still old school but on the other hand contains an hypnotic feel that is more likely to be found in current minimal productions
after a long break due to the work on the new dirt crew album and numerous remixes in the past 2 years break 3000 is back solo with his typical deep trance techno sound we know from his great releases on my best friend and trapez. this 10 minute plus monster is a dark and pumping excursion into the heart of techno. with a massive beat and a hard hitting piano stab the track winds itself through any soundsystem and when the old school 90s strings fall in you can be assured that the crowd goes crazy… on the flip daso proves his skills with an even tighter techno mix of the original. with his latest work for spectral and connaisseur he is on the top of the game and we are very proud to have him on board with this excellent remix, its amongst his best productions to date! loved by dave mothersole, c rock, p toile, sasse, nunos dos santos and many more..
the last remix single from the >raw< album features some really nice and tasty mixes of boogie down that vary from deep and dark minimal techno to exstatic tech-house. first up are chopstick & johnjon who both are up and coming artist that most of you might know from their label criminal records and the collaborations of chopstick as eyerer and chopstick on great stuff recordings. their mix of boogie down is a real trancey one with a great bassline added to the original feel of the track. second man in line is substatics falko brocksieper who delivers a very powerful minimal techno joint with great effects and pitched down vocals, this is a true dark roller ! also our friends from montreal canada >les bouchers< better known as dj shine and poontz made a cool electro house cut and complete this fine release in style
it is time for another minimal explosion from pisa ! our dear friend marzio arico comes up with two new tunes in his typical funky minimal style as we know from his last releases on dirt crew recordings and players paradise with his partner eclat as alfa romero.
motorcitysoul, tom clark and patrice bäumel ( trapez ) and nuno dos santos ( compost black ) remixes. following last months release of the new dirt crew album >raw< we present you a great remix package with some fine interpretations of original dirt crew album tracks by some of todays hottest remixers.
second single from the forthcoming full album cd due for october. dirt crew goes deep into the old school again with >coming for you<, experience the power of jacking bass and rough beats. the >big bad city< is another step towards darkness and warm minimalistic deep house, a great combination of percussion and deep organs make this track a special afterhours tune for the sweaty summer raves/tip
radio is a true rocker with delicate melodies and solid beat programming, it reminds us of early dirt crew flavours and therefore it is the perfect addition to the label catalogue. catchy vocals and a nice flow troughout the whole track makes this single a special release out of london city, very similar to the sounds of people like mike monday and the playtime crew. the first remix is by the bassthedub heroes 2020 soundsystem. they transform the track in a great minimalistic stomper, fully loaded with tons of bass and a great live feel to it. following in the footsteps of their highly acclaimed latest album the 2020 crew made their typical bouncey bass edit of this track. the flip offers you another deep and spacey rework by dirt crew
a cool groove and deep chords alongside prudos typical vocal madness, all combined in a strong arrangement. the dub version goes even deeper and is the perfect tool for a sweaty minimal techhouse set.. on the other side you will find a smashing spirit catcher remix
the original is a monster on the dancefloor , we ve been dropping it for months now and had enormous feedback wherever we played it. it will take dirt crew recordings into another direction and will continue where the tigerskin release left off. a new and fresh view on minimal and trance but never forgetting the house groove and that s what it s all about for us. the b-side features a cool old shool approach to the track by mr c who has been a long time partner of francis and is also involved in his matter:-form label. he takes the main groove of the record and adds some nice acid lines to it , all in a true 808 based groove , real analogue power !!
combines many styles and is a true crossover record that will work on any floor, techno, house or minimal. the track has the same kind of hypnotizing feeling like a john tejada record but it developes more towards a strong electro cut with its hitting snare and open structure. on the flip >man of the moment< andré kraml tears it up and puts down a solid groover. with his typical dense production and use of crazy samples and sounds it gets its own style we know from his great records he released last year on >crosstownrebels< and >firm<
nice price deal !!! big apple s holmar filipsson (member of mr. negative)with two electro techhouse monsters.. a beautiful string arrangement in the shining hamburger and the killer sun comes with a deep electro bassline which evolves from 80 s styled house to bright and shining trancey baleric spheres..releasedate:17.10.05
test 5 is a minimal techhouse styled acid track with a slamming house groove, powderroom on the flip is a more 80s influenced electro house song. using alot of arpeggiated sounds and nice melodies that transmit the happy feeling of this track. enjoy the hot new single from berlins finest
juna has everything what a girl needs: dirty basslines, sexy melodies and loads of creamy beats topped with a little bit of acid and trance reminiscence. on the flip you find dirt crew reworking this in their incredible hallucinating open souvereign electronic manner which takes the whole lot and rewinds it like a breath of fresh dusty air
down paris after being the main artist on dirt crew recordings for over seven years and with a staggering 13 eps in that period either solo or with his buddy till von sein, the berlin based alexander krueger has finally concluded a full album for us. he is one of germanys most consistent producers an has an huge release list on discogs ranging from the mid nineties when he started out as korsakow and dub taylor on classic labels like force tracks, mueller and raum musik to date.
the debut album by detroit swindle. it has everything you would expect from the swindles, some slow burners with a hint of disco, some deep house, some banging club monsters and hey, even some leftfield hip hop jams.
