LOST IN A LOOP EP
his hard-edged beats, insistent tones, and occasional flash of devious humor make deutschmann a natural addition to the mote-evolver roster: his natural versatility and clear-minded futurism result in compelling club tracks and dj nights, and his mote evolver debut ep lost in a loop is no exception to this rule. with just a simple schematic to work with, deutschmann does what the best producers do and enlivens those simple instructions until they give an illusion of greater complexity.
SILENT WITNESS EP

DARK MATTER EP
luke slaters mote-evolver label is enjoying an impressive run of form. having chalked up one of the standout cuts of the autumn in the shape of cari lekebuschs >spindizzy< and dropped two floor-shaking futuristic techno megabombs from ortin cam (>carnage< & >felt<) either side of the new year there can be little doubt that the long-standing label is as relevant now as it ever has been.
one of the key players in finlands techno scene, samuli kemppi has a reputation for making forward-thinking, boundary blurring electronic music. coming up to his tenth year as a producer, his knack for blending the best of the past with cutting edge sounds has seen samuli appear on labels as diverse as ovum, siesta, komisch and prologue, providing all the credentials necessary to understand why samulis style has consistently drawn attention from all corners.
FELT / INNER CITY
having taken care of business in spectacular fashion with his carnage track on mote-evolver back in september, ortin cam is back with more of his trademark floor-shaking futuristic techno!!
luke slaters mote evolver label is not pulling any punches. having shaken the techno scene to its boots last month with the release of ortin cams no-holes-barred >carnage<, the label moves on to their funky 13th release.
the name cari lekebusch is synonymous with what has made techno the musical powerhouse that it has become. globally recognized as a founding force behind the swedish techno movement alongside the triumvirate of adam beyer, jesper dahlbäck and joel mull, lekebuschs distinctive musical style and creative integrity has graced leading label from drumcode to soma to harthouse and turbo and spawned a career that has maintained over nearly two decades.
spindizzy is a deftly crafted funked-up tech house track. constructed from a palette of harmonically aligned keys, bass and horns, its intensity comes from the measured way in which each element is given the space to breath its own energy into the mix. pacey but musical, subtle yet memorable, this is a standout record.
luke slater adding his bass sodden l.b dub corp twist to the track completes the package. deeply dubbed-out tribal rhythms take the mix on a more left-of centre path that winds through a busy soundscape of atmospheric acoustics that seem to breathe in deeply before being exhaled in a release of firing percussion.
i ve been playing ortins track at big gigs for quite a while at peak times, with the advent & industrialyzer interpreting it its great to release these two fine pieces of work that have purpose and conviction says luke slater about the next release on his mote evolver label. the boundary pushing mind set slater brings to his own planetary assault systems creations is a key characteristic of the music he selects for mote evolver. this release from ortin cam is a prime example.
