radioactive miami bass experiments - slime-coated dubby techno - nervous electro - and beautifully melodic. selectively not-ambient electronica. the second record on nascent san francisco label left hand path comes from bay area artist c.l.a.w.s. who offers up four cuts that chart a pathway through techno s outer reaches. a perfect platter for the intrepid at-home listener and essential fodder for the adventurous dj.
comes complete with full colour artwork sleeve and handmade paper insert designed by the artist.
left hand path is proud to present its fourth release - ice pick. a beautifully aggressive four track techno ep from bay area troublemaker michael claus. following acclaimed releases on jacktone and 100% silk and his unforgettable remix on our last record by nackt. ice pick plays with (and against) modern movements in underground techno to satisfying effect. while michael s previous releases featured a gorgeous dub-infused atmosphere. ice pick steps towards a more militant sound. its eponymous title track is described perfectly by its name - a lethal rhythmically compelling club track primed for the peak of a late-night dj set. for each has the listener ascending an endless staircase of arpeggios. chased by raw electro beats. hexes is introspective. reinforcing michaelís talent for writing sublime melodic hooks. the recordís closer acid 46 is a bonafide dance floor stomper built around an undulating. coruscating acid riff. giving it a kaleidoscopic bay area twist.
san francisco label left hand pathís latest record is a contemporary techno opus. featuring four tracks. each with a distinct sound and feel. designed to set off a dancefloor and invigorate your stereo.
my cube is cubeís first vinyl lp and it is a multifaceted. kaleidoscopic listen. containing a multitude of moods and atmospheres. it sounds like the west coastís answer to container. and will appeal to fans of aussie synth-punks total control just as much as it will to fans of regis. silent servant. and their seminal downwards record label.
