hamid s h+ (hpls) label continues to plough a furrow into the freakiest corners of the minimal scene, keeping the spirit of labels like telegraph and minibar alive with off-kilter beats, freaky sampling and wayward synth work from lesser known operators. g76 is up on the a side with the wonky wonders of -father-, packing some seriously squelchy monosynth bass and plenty of beat trickery to wriggle under the skin of the most deviant dancers. h+dk (hamid and denis kaznacheev) tackle the b-side with -tachtagol connection-, keeping the drums as slender as possible and using a sweet but subtle pad as the focus of the track. it s a simple approach, but utterly effective.
cr= craig richards, va= volkan akin, jt= josh tweek, yy= yonatan yudkovitz, jm= jesse morrison, h= hamid hpls 002 sees the concept unfold a little bit more by showcasing six of the different collaborations featured on the forthcoming releases. the highlight would be indeed the collaboration with all time favourite ,and fabric da, craig richards. the result captured perfectly the mind bending essence that you usually encounter in his early morning or after party sets .tracks with volkan akin, josh tweek and jesse morrison will fit perfectly in more conventional narratives, when the live saxophone from yonatan yudkovitz compliment a more down tempo and experimental exercise.
