MUTABLE MINDS II
the mutable nature of our lives leads to a constant pursuit of musical incentives. last month we launched a new series on mindtrip aiming to bring together diverse sounds and musical backgrounds under a mutual project. mutable minds edition ii welcomes the very exceptional work from five of our favorite artists out there. the release opens with our head honcho pfirter and his anti-routine that comes with his trademark modular effect and a well-constructed sequence. sleepwalker belongs to mexicos finest techno export aka fixeer who delivered a pounding track with great energy. on the b-side things are getting deeper and more tripped out yet still powerful and intense with the swedish duo kuf & dold and their track mint. mutual minds ii closes with a familiar name that is none other than jonas kopp who returns to mindtrip with a very interesting piece that comprises a narcotic feeling and space stabs. the final outcome of the second mutable minds edition perfectly describes the musical perspective and ethos on mindtrip. hope you enjoy this trip to the fullest. this is mindtrip!
its been 4 years since the last music compilation on mindtrip. mutable minds brings together a mixture of five exceptional and talented artists whose sound matches perfectly with the mindtrip philosophy. head honcho, pfirter, and swedish pär grindvik contribute the first track of the release with their diversified collaboration embodied in a hypnotic and extraordinary tune whilst diego amura takes the lead with a track that is characterized by driving rhythm and haunting sequences. savas pascalidis debuts on the label with a trippy-sci-fi interpretation and the release closes with one of the latest guests on mindtrip podcast, fanon flowers, who takes us into a dark, mental and conceptual techno journey. the final outcome is mesmerizing and all four tracks can be seen on different aspects of an all night long set. this is mindtrip!
mindtrip is glad to introduce dold, a huge young talent from the swedish techno scene. known for his first releases on float records and his platform arsenik, ‘shutdown ep showcases a big range of his musical identity. dold takes us into a hypnotic journey with his melodic interpretations, while he moves things faster on the darkest side of this ep, with his driven techno tracks fully inspired by 909 patterns and analog synth jams. we are really happy to welcome such a young and furious spirit on the label, and we do believe his tunes work best if you play them out loud. this is mindtrip!
DOUBLE EXISTENCE (STANISLAV TOLKACHEV RMX)
september marks the return of mindtrips don on his imprint with a dark, intense and musical exploration, followed by a signature remix by ukranian icon stanislav tolkachev. rise of the white dwarf welcomes you into a trippy journey. double existence goes into a darker dimension of broken patterns and modular jam. they want to fool us is a clear statement by pfirter who delivers a raw, stormy techno track that keeps a melancholic twinge, while stanislav tolkachev makes his long awaited debut on mindtrip with a psychedelic, strong and driving interpretation of this original piece.
pfirter and his label mindtrip are highly respected in the world of techno. being the main vessel for his own productions, it has also featured music and remixes by producers such as chris liebing, lucy, markus suckut, oscar mulero and developer, whilst also looking to support and break new artists. the fifteenth vinyl release is in charge of italian talent diego amura who makes his mindtrip debut following releases on the likes of arts, planet rhythm and konsequent. having played alongside leading djs such as ben klock, marcel dettmann, rødhåd, sleeparchive and dax j, his reputation is growing substantially with each gig and release. diego’s original tracks on the automa ep incorporate a raw, analogue aesthetic, with a nod to the old school. straight up jams ready for any dancefloor, they also have a feeling of menace and purpose from the twisted melodies. jonas kopp supplies the sole remix, who to many should need no introduction following his influential releases on tresor, polegroup, ilian tape, clr and many more. his rework concentrates on a more hypnotic flow, instilled with sparks of energy, funk and deep textures. this is mindtrip!
on this confusing ball of mud we call earth, where things sometimes appear to be drifting apart, its refreshing to see things coalesce. mindtrip is pleased to announce f method, which sees label boss pfirter present 5 brand new tracks - rich in variety and very firmly stamped with his hallmark. this is mindtrip.
SIGNALS FROM SPACE
mindtrip presents mt13, which sees another young argentinan talent - farceb - making his mindtrip debut. farceb is a producer whos been pricking ears over the last couple of years with strong releases on labels such as arts, orioni and circular limited. he now joins pfirters imprint with his superb signals from space ep. exoplanet war sets things in motion and is a stylish, entrancing tune, which, if it wasnt for its intrinsic energy and power - would border on the somniferous. next up is signals from space, a tough, brutal and percussive workout, punctuated by dark, organic synth stabs. this track builds and rolls along in a way dancefloors will love. unknown shadow is a powerful, stripped down merciless lump of peak-time techno which cleverly blends atmosphere and hard hitting percussion. the final track - the superb hyperion, is a 6 minute, deadly exercise in pushing intensity and tension to (and sometimes beyond) commonsensical limits. this is mindtrip music!

THE FALL OF THE EMPIRE IS IMMINENT (MARKUS SUCKUT RMX)
>the fall of the empire< is a tough and unyielding release that continues both pfirter and mindtrip s run of form. >the fall of the empire is imminent< is raw, powerful and tightly wound. it holds an almost familiar sound, something that brings memories of techno from years gone by, but with the added depth, intricacy and attention to details that juan pablo pfirter lends to all his productions. markus suckut remixes on mt-02 and brings his stripped sound to his rework of >multiverse<. keeping things simplistic and functional, markus finds the groove, toying with bass throughout the track and letting the loop run for near seven minutes, gently tweaking fx and eq in the light-handed and tender manner he become known for.
techno bomb! the first release is a three tracker solely from pfirter. having released on clr, stockholm ltd, stroboscopic artefacts & figure, pfirters brand of hypnotic music has touched dancers and listeners the world over. fractales sits on the a-side while induccion a la hipnosis and epistaxis share the b-side. a beautifully rounded and attentive first release of what proves to be an exciting new page in juan pablo pfirters book.
