trippy peak time tracks from kangding ray, denise rabe, mario berger and dotwav.
six artists tell six different stories.
CALL TO ADVENTURE (KAS:ST REMIX)
the latest vinyl release from berlin-based label konflkt is signed by up-and-coming producer introversion who’s been proving his worth with every release. “call to adventure” is no exception: all 3 rave-inspired tracks as well as the remix by kas:st hit that sweet spot of hypnotic albeit galvanising techno.
PARADOXON (RAFFAELE ATTANASIO REMIX)
the entire label catalogue dwells in somber soundscapes, but paradoxon takes schizoid catharsis to another level. drony, loopy and moody, dotwav’s newest vinyl is a powerful weapon in any bag. raffaele attanasio makes a guest appearance with a remix of the title track that breaks the original structure.
VICOLO (DOTWAV REMIX)
the ep’s driving force comes from the stripped-down approach that has become a trademark of shkedul’s sound. contained in its components, it is the perfect layering of full kicks, liquid bleeps and spectral hats that elevate the originals to higher level. label owners dotwav add the full stop to the record with an atmospheric remix.
FORM REALITY (TWR72, UNDER BLACK HELMET REMIXES)
taking under black helmet and twr72 on board, konflkt presents its 3rd vinyl release “form reality”. two diverse vocal-driven originals by dotwav set the foundation. under black helmet stomps his no-nonsense bassline over the title track while twr72 shakes up “expecting you” into a siren-laced techno jam.
INSANITY (I/Y, CADENCY REMIXES)
dotwav returns to their own konflkt imprint with insanity. both i/y and cadency aka hector oaks reshape the originals into individual sound concepts rounding off a complex four-track ep.
heading straight towards peak time insanity sets the pace. the raw yet punchy destination that follows on from a hypnotic synth exploration receives a deep tripped-out remix treatment from berlin-based duo i/y. distance ventures into an emotive dimension that channels melancholy and anticipation into a compelling techno ballad. charging the b-side with urgent heat, cadency transforms dotwav s composition into a sustained power house for the floor.
SCHMERZ (MARTYN HARE, CHARLTON REMIXES)
with schmerz, the berlin-based artist collective dotwav serves up two slamming weapons. techno heavyweights charlton and martyn hare complete the second release on konflkt with two banging remixes.
