well respected galaxy 2 galaxy member esteban adame appears on dolly with 3 strong, true and soulful detroit house groovers supported by a los hermanos remix in full effect, strong package for all underground resistance lovers!!!
dolly is proud to welcome parisian wunderkind coni to the label. operating on the brink of meditative house and (detroit) techno, nicolas oliers particularly hypnotic offering will certainly stand out in any set. the title track caligula is a slowly developing, climactic techno burner with icey, imperial strings hovering over it. a2 electroflash is a more warm, lush, deep-into-sunday-afternoon bubbler with a distinct french feel, topping breezy chords with a sharp hook to give it edge. with fellow parisian bambounou joining coni on the flip side, medusa goes deeper into percussive territory with a pulsating bongo riddim embraced by haunting organ pads perfect for those all-lights-off moments. a beast with many heads!
basic soul unit returns with another deadly ep on dolly, further investigating the thin dividing line between techno and broken beats. a-side wallow is a menacing big room stormer with a delicate pad breakdown, with voiski providing an alternate more driving techno version of it with a splendid melodic twist midway through the track. radiate and joyride on the b both have bsus signature rhythmic ideas and fresh energy with radiate even going full-on broken rave! joyride is that upbeat funky techno nugget thats going to sit in your dj bag forever.
with songs for tova dolly introduces a brand new producer called afik naim. this rough diamond was pulled out of a cave near jerusalem. he has a cinematic experimental take on what you would call techno but he is rather hard to classify to be honest. exactly what we like, somebody who stands out with his typical sound pallet! another perfect player on this songs for tova team is the never disappointing kassem mosse with a killer remix to wrap up this high class 4 tracker!
warmer than warm club/techno groovers by the man brooks mosher, delivering his third release on dolly. 4 very strong cuts with exactly that dreamy & sensual feeling which might be the main reason why we like to dance & sweat in the dark so much... body to body with the eyes closed, far away from everyday trouble... dance, make love and heal yourself. powerful dj-tool on several levels!

volfs second ep for dolly and its on! two fierce but club friendly rolling techno tracks featuring an epic luke hess remix. with their warm and euphoric chords hydro funk and shadow section will take you right back to the golden days of techno, reminding a bit of aril brikha and the likes. detroit s luke hess on remix duties takes hydro funk into even deeper territories. an hypnotic and melancholic, yet very driving detroit techno tool. pure bliss on dolly number 23.
great follow up on basic soul units you knew ep, continuing the remarkable high standard of the current round of new dolly releases. the somewhat mysterious compassion crew brings us two absolute wicked floorburners with this slightly tribal hypnotic feel... sneaky! redshape on remix duties takes things to the techy side of life with a smooth & extended techno rework of v.h.s.s... winner package!
xdb returns on dolly with the ganivon ep, the follow-up of his excellent recago ep from 2011. xdb is once again delivering the goods, with 3 top-notch contemporary techno tracks filled with his trademark hypnotic melodies, lush strings and solid groovin beats. favourite is tonik with its classic detroit-feel and special atmosphere. berlin/berghain based answer code request is doing the remix job for ganivon, resulting in an effective techno bomb which perfectly combines industrial techno elements with the dolly feel. recago might have been hard to surpass, but xdb might just have done it. big!
the return of the dutch masters of deep! rotterdam techno veterans duplex show how its done with three lush & warm interstellar techno tracks from that forgotten future... pure, dedicated and very well-crafted. this will orbit the dancefloor straight into outer space. and as an extra the steven tang remix of jx3po to heat things even more up. well done dolly!
leonid delivering some real deep house gems! amazing warm & subtle groovy tracks with a techy edge and some distant detroit echos pure bliss. maybe not peak time tracks but very well suited for building up tension, or for the early after hours, when the sun rises again. tip!
outstanding ep on the mighty dolly again, who keeps on delivering at the highest level. four equally strong tracks (of which three will be featured on steffis upcoming panoramabar mix cd) by dexter, third side, john barera & will martin, and label lady steffi herself. crossing the thin line of contemporary house & techno with slight hints of acid and proper us deep house... but basically all just can described as strong & plain groove, for maximum dancefloor delight. strong!
firm yet seductive detroit-rooted techno tracks by johannes volk (axis, exploration, life) all with his trademark 909 drum programming and hypnotic synth- & basslines, perfectly connecting past with the present. deep, raw, stomping, grooving, rocking and no-nonsense... this will move the crowd. featuring an even deeper & rawer remix by unbalance

chicagos steven tang (emphasis) with four brand new tracks, with tangs unique trademark blend of raw jacking chicago beats and detroit-inspired atmospheres. one of the few contemporary techno artists that truly delivers music for both body and soul. hot release!
dollys first release in 2012 and immediately setting a high standard for the year to come! this time aroy dee under his mos disguise is delivering the deepness, and this one could be very well one of his strongest releases to date. present as usual are his trademark vintage synths & drums, but this goes beyond the average retro chicago stuff. skillfull on the machines while its very clear the music comes from deep within. marcel fengler on remix duty adds a little techno punch, which perfectly tops of this very fine release.
weird yet very funky & playable chicago inspired house/acid tracks by detroit s jared wilson. jacking rhythms, nasty 303 basslines and whispering voices creating this nice old-fashioned sexual energy... just how we like it. conforce on remix duties delivers a deep & moody techy house rework, perfect for the early morning hours. bomb!
dolly is on a roll! one hot release after another. after tyrez from chicago its now brooks mosher, another us producer, delivering the heat. four outstanding funky deephouse cuts in the best motor city / panoramabar tradition... this will keep them moving like theres no tomorrow... another oustanding release on this high-quality house label run by panoramabar resident steffi!
dolly goes all raw as we might expect from a label thats done by a panoramabar resident dj. stripped down, barenaked tracks that show their fragile essence. and in case you wonder why these tracks have such a great chicago-ish vibe, well thats because they are from chicago. no further info about this new project from a known producer... but all we can say is that we like it.
one of the hottest names drops another killer release on dolly! jacob korn can t do much wrong right now... and he prooves his good taste and fine production skills with this release! warm bassline driven tracks with loads of energy. sundaysun and sand are big warm house tunes! oh... and if the two originals are not enough... dexter and john daly on remix duty here!! big tunes, big release!! classic
dolly continues after the great jakob korn release... steffi and old klakson label partner dexter colaborate. dexter drops dolly 2 with some mad old schoolish detroit influence called 1992... this is what we would have loved to hear from reese! with the trade mark sharp beats of dexter injected with phat funking kms techno (including reese bassline). redbox is the same recipe. dancefloor orientated old school house and techno influences with powerful production skills. big peaktime tracks without doing the standard tricks... pure dancefloor blizz!
