METAPPHYSICS EP (INCL DENISE RABE REMIX)
the x vinyl series continues with label head florian meindl at the helm with the upcoming release metaphysics. synonymous with deep, dark techno, florian does not disappoint with this 4 track ep, enlisting in demand producer and rabe label boss denise rabe on remixing duties. playing live with his modular synth set up, florian began working on the concept for what would become these three original tracks while playing shows over the last month. the live jam character can clearly be felt in the first two tracks metaphysics and holomorphic function. florian s original bell s theorem has a deep melodic structure. with denise rabes interpretation, the track is contorted through some serious distortion pedals and broken beat to match her dark take on the synth line. the outcome is an impressive piece for one of those never ending nights in concrete walled rooms with oversized loudspeakers.
FLASH RECORDINGS 3
the concept of this record is simple, 4 artists join forces to create these non compromising, focussed dj tools which marks the start of a new release series. the berlin based producers avgusto, jamie anderson and strisc. are no stranger to florian meindl s flash recordings with several releases on the label and rekord 61 from moscow is a new addition to the roaster. vinyl only.
set for release on florianʼ,s established label flash recordings, collide: remixes is a collection of remixes of the tracks from florian meindlʼ,s well received lp ʻ,collideʼ,. a collision of analog sounds and styles, collide takes the listener on a dark techno journey, while the remixers stay true to this. florian has invited fellow electronic producers berger, dubspeeka, electric rescue & avgusto to each bring their individual sound to the remix ep delivering a fresh take on the prominent tracks from collide. play loud!

WHAT IS TECHNO
what is techno is the first single to be taken from techlegend in the makin florian meindls long awaited debut album waves (1-12)inch, due for release soon on his very own flash recordings. what is it techno? what is house? good question and its the doubt that drives you on the dancefloor. florians original is perfectly crafted deep groovy tech. a delicate melody belies the raw power, generated here by the growling bass and drum line. ramping up the filth factor and still riding high from the release of their second city ep are boys noizes, shadow dancer. matching detroit synths with sinister bubbling acid the manchester duo create a beast of a mix that also displays an equal amount of beauty.

BUMMELZUG RMXS, BY HOSH, DIRT CREW, DASO
excellent remix pack with strong reworks from h.o.s.h., dirt crew, daso & pawas...
for flash lützenkirchen delivers three very classy dancefloor burners. first up there is >enter the moonlight<, an enchanting piece of thumping peak time business. a big bass, pumping beats and some great oriental sounds combined with far-out effects create a unique atmosphere. modern styles meet oldskool feelings! >on the shore< is even more oldskool than that. the fat and wobbly bassline pushes the track forward and creates the perfect antagonism to the warm effects and clicky minimal beats. the highlight - however - is the wonderfully written melodic piano piece that turns this track from wicked into wow! beautiful and tough, oldskool and fresh, slick and funky - all at the same time. this one is going to be huge. listen for yourself! at last there is >pokemon companion<, a more direct and solid piece of minimal tech. a drum’n bass like powerfully grumbling bass, and yet another memorable synthie pattern that seems to grow out of the buzzing loop like a spring flower out of wet grass - naturally and wonderful!
dj support: stephan bodzin, laurent garnier, mijk van dijk, misstress barbara, break 3000, silicone soul... if you havent realised yet, its 2008! and flash recordings are back with a bang. this time around the label owners oliver koletzki and florian meindl joined forces again with their tough breed of minimal and electro creating their unique signature sound that has been hailed as the new german techno. after singles by daso, pawas and lützenkirchen, the two masterminds behind the imprint have decided to throw their skills together in a big pot, stir it around a couple of times and spice it up with some dance floor mania. and their brew is lethal! cyclone is one of those tracks that will completely reorganise any dance floor. koletzkis charming melodies are mixed with some tough minimal meindleske beats that break down in a crescendo of effects and synthie patterns. this is a magic potion! on the flip there is tiger. with its strong bassline the track lurks around the corner eagerly waiting to bite the crowd with an enchanting arpeggio and some great stabby chords
MICRO BOX EP
cool solid 3 tracker by lützenkirchen !! the production dream team oliver koletzki and florian meindl have managed to convince south german techno mastermind lützenkirchen for the latest single on their collective flash recordings imprint. and how right they were! this release is most definitely among the strongest flash records so far and sets the tone for forthcoming releases. lützenkirchen, who has already released his own productions as well as tons of remixes on labels such as craft music, royal flush, polydor, ministry of sound or his home base great stuff
NEVER MEET THEM
after his first release on flash recordings together with daso on the night express ep, pawas is now back with his very own three-track ep on the label of koletzki & meindl. all tracks were created in pune in india, pawas’ hometown, and the ep is about three different characters. alicia, charlie and edward. each one of them has a certain distinctive vibe about them: alicia is deep and eloquent, edward is more hectic and restless while charlie seems the funky and witty sort. in terms of music, edward is carried on a powerful, deep synthie melody, a big breathing bassline and some great percussive clicks and clacks that turn into a slightly ravey minimal burner later on in the tune. very hot! edward is a little lighter and is pushed forward by a great funky melody that creates the perfect after hour moment. imagine yourself on the beach when the sun is coming up. alicia on the a side is a deeper, more housy affair has a melodic, percussive and detroity appeal. pawas has managed to create a very fresh and unique signature sound and with releases on squonk, connaisseur and flash records, 2007 seems to be the year for him.
NIGHT EXPRESS EP
this is the first ep on flash recordings that doesnt feature label owners florian meindl and oliver koletzki. but they have made sure to look for a quality replacement. no one else than cologne-based artist daso - renowned for his previous releases on labels like mbf, session deluxe, ghostly and connaisseur - teams up with his buddy pawas to create their first release >night express< on flash. pawas has just had his first record out on adam krolls and markus müllers imprint squonk records and has been a dj for 9 years, moving from india to cologne one year ago. on the a-side daso & pawas foreshadow the summer with the track >tgv<: a beautifully deep melody that swings along a powerful loop. >ice< - the name of germanys high-speed train is clearly more electro-driven. a slightly broken beat with a thumping organic bassline pumps above an ever-changing soundscape that culminates in some euphoric high-pitched synths. never too much, this is a perfect example for elegant understatement. also on the flip side is the track >bummelzug<, which translates as >very slow train< in german. this is a dub-techno masterpiece. deep dubs and arpeggios flow over the simple beats with a great clappy snare drum. dreamy, hypnotic, melodic! flash recordings has just become fit for the summer
and again florian presents his way of doing things. >my way< is carried by a strong, mysteriously melodic sample filled with tons of reverb, the track really explodes when his strong and fidgety loops meet a high-pitched whistle sound. listen for yourself: this is a thumping minimal electro monster! on the flip >live your dream< is a lot dreamier, hence the name, a softly rolling sample says hello to an effect-laden subbass that is sure to make the dancefloor vibrate
german-techno dream team oliver koletzki and florian meindl with a new ep on their collective label flash recordings. >kolibri< is a deeply grooving piece of dreamy minimal electro with melodic and mesmerizing stabs and many trippy effects. on the b-side the humorous title >grandmothers flash< is sure to set the dance floor on fire with its fidgety loop, a typically raving synthie and a murderously deep sub bass. koletzki and meindl stay amused and allow themselves a joke towards the end of the track referencing the 2005 hit mückenschwarm. also on the flip, florian meindl’s >paris< has a thriving organic bassline, some great arpeggios, freaked out melodies and a very strong loop with many hi-hats. supported by chloe, karotte and oxia
REALITY IS ON THE WAY
played by oxia, karotte, chloe !!! look out, reality is on the way! dance as long as you can stand. now based in london florian meindl, the 21 year old austrian born dj and producer delivers the second release on his brandnew label with berlin based production partner oliver koletzki. here he combines his minimal techno style with strong modern electro beats and freaked out melodies. this is the sound of flash records!reality is on the way is a fresh mix of modern german electro and minimal, in the flashlights is a headthumping subwoofer destroying beast of a tune and light speed is more hypnotic then david copperfield
