SKALEN (LAIVA RMX)
12" Vinyl D 05.09.16
skalen ep consists of sleek, functional but no-nonsense techno variations from snitch. leading with >skalen< - a deadly, serrated tool fashioned to carve up the hardest of dance floors and takes you through the tunnel without a torch.>kromag< displays a bit more of the swing that this producer does so well adding darker atmosphere to a killer effective techno banger. the ep rounds up with a terrific laiva remix of kromag. laiva was discovered in the eastern town of kuhmo and made an appearance on wavereform before with a killer t16 record. he makes it all about dub-scuffed kicks here and pulsating bleeps throughout his version of ruthlessly straightforward, point-blank attack for the 48-hour-party people.

STARP (GREEN VINYL / VINYL ONLY)
12" Vinyl D 30.07.15
after the immersive techno pulse of qindeks effe 12inch, wavereform is thrilled to present the return of rising lativan talent juras lietus to our label for our fifth release. his debut single des-m marked our second release in 2014, and while the artist remains something of a mystery outside of his home city of riga, his productions sport the kind of well-travelled tones that transcend geographical location to deliver an infectious message. the single kicks off with metallic thump of >steiga<, which leaps out from the very start with an addictive chord line and a well-rounded kick. juras lietus handles the progression of his track with poise, feeding in a rich tapestry of percussive elements and teasing the filter on that distinctive synth to give the track a fluid, psychedelic flavour. balancing these elements out is a warm, undulating bassline that injects a joyous energy into the track, while the soul-stirring speech sample should be familiar to any socially conscious dancer. its a production that satisfies the needs of a party-hungry dancefloor while equally delivering the internal reflection that comes with all great dub techno.

STRUCTURE (VINYL ONLY)
12" Vinyl D 11.12.14
the third release from wavefreform again comes to us from the east, and this time around it marks a reformation of sound for both the label and the artist. half of the long-running georgian duo greenbeam & leon, boyd schidt is a producer with over a decade of work already under his belt whose first releases emerged in 2007. as a solo artist, his career dates to 2010 with digital releases on georgia’s front rec, fvf records, and emote music, and a track on the new vinyl compilation from studio r°. with the hard, broken kick pattern, elevated tempo, and nods to electro, the a-side ‘phantom’, a collaboration with subex, is a change of pace for the artist and the hardest thing yet to emerge from wavereform. dubwise use of effects shows the same hands still at work, but the sound elements, granulated blasts of static and drop-based structure of the track hold strong parallels to the rejuvenated techno sound currently emerging from the uk. the b-side, ‘structure’, recalls the previous work of the artist: subtle, building dub techno rich in detail and with the dancefloor firmly in mind. there is clear experience at work here with his deliberate deployment and manipulation of elements as the track struts along while enveloping the listener in its smaller details. as it pauses and takes an extended breakdown, the details rush forwards, but it finds renewed force to power itself to the close. coming in this case from an established producer with a long history, this kind of control is not surprising, but it is more indication of the riches of the east that have yet to be discovered by audiences worldwide.

DIS-M (COLOURED VINYL / VINYL ONLY)
coloured 12" Vinyl D 06.08.14
for our second release on wavereform, we continue our explorations into sophisticated sounds from mostly-unexplored areas with the production debut from juras lietus, a 25 year-old latvian producer from riga whose mysterious origins in this out-of-the-way locale may surprise listeners, but whose sound fits very well into the label’s mission to reform the sound sphere with simple and elegant tracks that demand attention and bring unknown talent deserved notice. lietus wastes no time in showing off his developed dub techno style on >dark frank< as the bold, well-defined contours of the bottom end are contrasted with gentler ambient textures in the opening, it acquires more force as it moves along as he adds harder percussion patterns to the framework while the dense atmospherics progress barely in the background. >direct< is the more subtle and atmospheric of the pair, as crisp, delicate drums develop slowly while also suggesting melody. it too gains strength as it goes though, with ricocheting percussion and a barely-controlled feedback wail leading into a dramatic breakdown before he slowly winds things down in the detail-rich final section. j&#363,,,,,,,ras lietus and latvian techno may be mostly unknown, but this strong showing for wavereform 002 reveals much still to be uncovered in these eastern lands.

NEW SKY (SOULPHICTION / KLARTRAUM RMXS / 180G / VINYL ONLY)
12" Vinyl full cover D 03.04.14
vinyl only - limited edition 180 gram pressing! >reforming digital waves by simple & elegant music patterns< - a straightforward mission statement for a new imprint, and one whose understated, direct manner shows the music-centered focus of wavereform as we reveal our first release. the >new sky< ep is the production debut of a mysterious new russian talent known as ivanov, and about whom little is known past his reclusive buddhist existence and his background in guitar, which is clearly evident on the title track. underlain by rising and falling atmospheric washes and understated percussion, >new sky< is propelled by a funky, jazzy and clearly organic keyboard solo that closely approximates his familiar stringed instrument in texture, tone, and musical development. next up is minimal legend soulphiction, who masterfully beefs up the original with a fat, growling bassline and more aggressive, hard hitting drums and claps that take the dreamy mood of ivanovs track and transform it into something more cosmic and psychedelic while retaining its musicality. on the flip, a new tune entitled >deep< gets revisited by lucidflow label heads klartraum, who have recently shifted their digital imprint to vinyl. here they bring things towards the dubbier end of the spectrum with a slow-building track that goes from hazy beginnings to an ominous, dramatic breakdown and then into a harder grooving second half. taken together, these three tracks are an auspicious beginning for a new name and label, and in fulfilling the stated goals offer great promise of things to come.
