nice price deal !!! texture series vol7!! as the title of franco cangelli s (head of mowar) new ep suggests, it s all about blending the raw aspect of dance-floor grooves with the deeper emotional side of the spectrum. denizen combines elegant and funky sh-101 riffs with dreamy pads and old skool 909 beats. the title track raw emotion can easily be summed up as jacking beats, larry heard bassline, deep detroit strings and dbx-like bleeps. in other words, all the essentials of machine funk! a floor filler without a doubt, both summing up the essentials of techno with a hint of oldskool. on the flipside, just before dawn is a stripped down house groove with smooth rolling beats, suggestive chords and funky goodies. who stole the soul throws raw beats and a deep bassline at you, but is mellowed down by rhodes chords and sweet melodic deep house in a glenn underground style. special rerelease of this killer release !!!
nice price deal !!! alessandro bocci s first official full-length album under the m16 guise considerably fleshes out the portrait previously established on the eps he s issued since the alias s 2004 inception (prior to m16, the bologna-based producer was a member of starfuckers). in its early going, lack corner after the beat sessions sounds like it might shape up into a solid but well-behaved collection of artful techno, in particular when armati opens the set promisingly with four minutes of metronomic, bass-heavy throb, and lab 1 follows suit with an agitated broil of bottom-heavy locomotion. but a more experimental side gradually begins to declare its presence in the rippling crackle and buzzing whirrs that threaten to smother the combustible beat undercurrent pounding throughout lab 1. sounding perfectly at home in this context, the already-heard ep cut agenzia 13 then works a thunderously thudding kick drum and ricocheting percussive accents into a roiling groove that grows ever more forceful until it reaches a steamrolling climax.
nice price deal !!! supported by nick warren, timo maas, darko esser, steve porter, mark brown, d.ramirez, anderson noise, dj tee.
bit027 is by 2 italians (who do it better as we already know anyways ...) mario masullo & glitches who deliver a pure particle riot on their >pimps ride free< ep. the kids (mario masullo from rome and glitches peepz from naples) without a doubt know what they are doing on this strong as it gets 3 track ep. the message is raw driving techno with an orchestral feel and an overall extra ordinary hypnotizing mood that really breaks away from the norm and will leave the dancer behind thirsty for more. while the a-side is more on the techy driving side of things, combining orchestral sounds for creating a very quite unusual vibe, b1 goes even deeper in hypnotizing your ears and fucking with your brains, real phsychotic dancefloor madness is the key here. b2 then heads back to the melodic side of the game, without forgetting to keep a strong eye on an intense dance-floor aspect here also. melodies so sweet and clean keep flirting with your ears on this one and its just all so well put together, that it manages to keep an minimal feel, eventhough its filled with so many ideas and great sound details, that it simply leaves us behind speechless and answers the question why our new pimps, sure ride for free at the same time ...
mufo has garnered attention a few years ago with his c.l.a.u.d.i.a. 12-inch for kompakts k2 imprint, and sounds set to do so again with colors. anything but monochromatic, >one color< opens with stripped-down, tech-house swing before adding shuffling pulses and melodic accents that are both jittery and robotic. working itself up to a skittish, metronomic broil, the track exudes an android relentlessness that?s offset by repeated change-ups. on the b-side, di francesco brings the funk on >two colors<, six minutes of swizzling electro-techno whose palette is anything but muted. the tune squawks and sputters like some incessantly sneezing synthesizer apparatus in what could pass for a fractured 23rd-century techno take on zydeco. with this release in hands, its again proven without a doubt, that persistencebit continues the global hunt for quality. supported by: robert leiner (www.leinermedia.net): >good use of the korg wavestation on both< andrew duke (andrew duke in the mix radio brodcast since 1987): >excellent my favourite track is one color< ryaz khan (ww.chry.fm / myspace.com/diversionsradioshow): >solid release i love both cuts<xpansul (minus,plus 8 records): >two colors is great. thanks.<
persistencebit returns with the follow up ep of wang incs meditations for a better world series, which first part on persistencebit has been highly acclaimed and has been given incredible reviews, such as in de.bug magazine among many others. previously on sonig, bip-hop, and context, he now reappears with number two of the series and once you start listening you will know it all makes sense, given how close in spirit wang inc. s fresh fusion of experimental treatments and funk-house grooves is laid down. throughout the ep, wang speckles his fabulous metal machine music with rolling bass lines, high-stepping beats, and brilliant splashes of synthetic colour, whether it s the pounding stepper mind the gap or the pulsating future-funk of you are late a near-perfect fusion of experimental and dance musics, hyperactive dog splatters its house-inflected steam-roller with showers of whirr and click, and animates it with snares that hit so hard they could chop your head off. in the closer track this is the song to say goodbye he brings us electronic noise and beat madness to round things up and create a diverse sounding listening experience
the latest release from persistencebit headquarters, comes with a killer single-sided, single-track ep, serving the brilliant donnacha costello remix of >cobra< by rolf and fonky (italian djs and producers mirco uguccioni and maurizio ottavi). and donnacha does it again, what he does best – delivering strong low-riding techno grooves. costello, who is no stranger to the electronic music world, with his sought after releases on mille plateaux, releases on kompakt & his colour series on his own minimise imprint, brings as fine echoing claps over a steam-driven shuffle move, letting the intensity escalates when a house feel seeps into the tracks hammering pulse, after which a gradual wind-down brings the lights down to help ease the hooded snake to sleep on this remix. the track is a pure dance floor sweeper in full effect, cut and mastered for optimal dj friendly use
minimal phreak out strong release by this swedish dream team of clicks n cuts.. after the fantastic gez varley and geoff white releases in the past few months, persistencebit returns strong once more with the swedish minimal techno artists johan skugge and mikael stavÃ¶strand, who work their collaborative gear into a feverish lather on a new trio of high-octane cuts. immaculately constructed and executed with precision, the duos material isnt as skeletal as one might expect-ample noise and commotion appear alongside the tunesgrooves-and, in its acidy moments, pink phantom sometimes sounds like audion, albeit in a slightly less raucous frame of mind
a veteran of force inc., !k7, tommy boy, swim, and warp, one-time lfo member and current g-man gez varley brings his protean techno mastery to persistencebit with two originals and two >g-11< mixes by carsten fietz and nadja lind. varley anchors his pulverizing g-man mix of >slaunch< with a colossal kick drum and drenches its galloping pulse with cobra-like streams.
first 12inch on persistencebit records by the italian artist wang inc.: 3 tracks and a bunch of locked grooves. the concept of this first exploration of wang inc. is simple: >the best meditation is the one you make in the middle of entropy<. >this are hard years for humanity.- says wang inc.- terror, war on terror, enduring freedom, pollution, economic harassment and the sea will be dead in 40 years.< karotte: >a1 ist eine tolle nummer. ganz groß!!!<, mike shannon (cynosure, revolv: >b2 does it for me... a nice dreamy hypnotic groove. some great loops on this one as well<.
