cyan341 is bethnal green boy mark streatfield, returning to uncharted audio here with his new ep *coal train*. released ahead of the full length *far from home* album, this ep follows his earlier *disconnected* and *pattern 4* releases on uncharted audio (licensed by james zabiela and championed by the likes of move d and benjamin brunn). when we first heard the opening track it was signed on the spot – probably one of the finest uk techno rumblers we have heard in many a year.
langer returns to uncharted audio wax for the first time since unch002 way back at the turn of the millennium. with four tracks of the highest quality techno and house, from dubby atmospherics to peak time shakers, this ep showcases all the elements of the second coming of langer, a reclusive individual currently based somewhere in london. with additional production assistance from kone-r on two tracks (athena and sensitive), this ep will turn ears from chicago to berlin and everywhere east, west and in between. counting carl craig, biosphere, basic channel, mark van hoen/locust and marcellus pittman among its various influences, anyone with an ear for quality electronic music will find something to love here.
returning to his original home for this ep, it represents yet another left turn on the ukkonen musical path. the man himself says: *once again i want to change direction a little, whilst still keeping all the things i love in there - the polyrhythms, phasing loops, ambiguous timings and so on* however this set sees the tempo looser than before. we are not sure if post-techno actually ever happened, but maybe post-discotronica is, er, in the post. anyway, we liked the tracks so much that we once again went the extra mile with the physical product - a clear and white marbled thing of beauty, cut to 10 inch size in a 12 inch pressing.
the mysterious arctic producer known only as ukkonen, returns to vinyl with a brand new five track ep as a warm-up for his forthcoming double album on uncharted audio.
following last years >erriapo< 12 inch, which was charted by the likes of agoria and left critics comparing his unique non-linear grooves to the likes of gas, the sight below, mark e, aphex twin, brian eno, carl craig, mika vainio and isolee, here are five more masterpieces from his repertoire.
nice price deal !!! cyan341 is east london producer mark streatfield… following critical acclaim for his previous releases on uncharted audio (one of which was licensed by renaissance for james zabielas masters series mix), smallfish, kreislauf and his own rednetic imprint, and ahead of his debut album (also forthcoming on ua), this new 12 inch showcases >disconnected<, a track exclusive to this release, alongside a range of remixes from some of the hottest underground talent that techno has to offer. already counting such luminaries as move d and benjamin brunn among his fans, his new material is set to gain him a lot more.
