dominik eulberg’s second ep on his label apus apus features the track “roter gitterling“ (eng. basket stinkhorn / red cage) on the a side and „tintenfischpilz“ (engl. octopus stinkhorn / devil s fingers) on the flip side. a. roter gitterling the fleshy red cage of this kind of mushroom reminds of a merging of an upside down shopping string bag and an alien. not allowing any objection. the track strides forward with determination towards a musical interpretation of this strange being. a fulminant kick drum counteracts in a very prosaic way the bitter-sweet pads. in a very narrative fashion the track gathers speed and flocks diverse soundscapes and disembogues in a break of harmonical expanse. conciliatory and in a hedonistic way the bass drum eventually stitches together what belongs to each other. b. tintenfischpilz this bizarre looking extraterrestrial mushroom evokes at first glance the image of a dead octopus or radioactive vegetable. as in a science fiction movie four to six tentacles sprout and raise out of a common stinkhorn and later spread into a star shape look. in an unparalleled manner this stunning progression is executed musically by eulberg with a high degree of elaboration. all done with elegant blend of continuous progression and permanent change the track wreathes itself towards heaven. whereas fragmented melody artifacts pour into the shape of a miraculous emergence.
nuiton is back on exit and has come along with three timeless pieces riding through constantly building rooms of merciless sounds. in -out of prism-. he maintains the mystery surrounding his character. and manifesting his place as a chameleon of today’s electronic music scene.

after a year’s hiatus optimo music disco plates returns with the first of several planned releases.
first up is long time friend phil kieran with an ep made specifically with optimo in mind. it has been tried and tested over recent months and more than ticks all our boxes. we feel confident it will tick yours too.
phil says “the ep was recorded in my house and made up of mostly live percussion performed live by thomas tettey annang. originally from ghana. he moved to belfast some years ago. it just so happens his wife is a close friend of my sisters and that was the first introduction. thomas now runs -releasing rhythms” here in belfast teaching drum classes.
we used a wide selection of traditional african drums that all have their own name. each one has a style and a sound. the rhythms used in this record would stem back to south american rhythms but using african drums. this was a sound and rhythm that influenced early post punk records in new york and still has an influence on dance music today.”
weaving the old with the new.
exploring the known and the unknown.
time is just irrelevant.
it’s the journey that matters
stories are forever...
genii’s debut ep on feines tier. we are more than happy to present four tracks by the man from amsterdam who’s also responsible for countless dutch party and festival happenings as well as the productions for electronic live band dialoque. artwork by daniel hageman.
laconic phrases are all about less words and more sense. we use the same principles in our stripped down grooves which are released on fresh imprint - laconica. its all about minimalistic dance-floor tools which were tested in different clubs around the world. from kyiv s closer to concrete in paris.
for a debut ep. label founder alex pervukhin presents 3 different grooves. on the a-side you can find hommie groove. which is an excellent example of a broken-beat house music with good-old airy juno pads. on b side there are two 4/4 tools: bb. which could be heard in varhat’s mix for concrete which was so hyped last year. aa is a peak-time killer with analogue chords and jackin bassline. strong minimalistic grooves - exactly what laconica is all about.

paper tree sneaked out into the world for a moment a few years back and then vanished. lee burridge loved the track so much that he continued to harass rebelski. sometimes standing outside his window in the flower bed. for weeks on end until he finally agreed to let lee release it on all day i dream. not content with a single track lee went back to rebelskis garden and tapped on the window repeatedly until he agreed to make some more beautiful tracks. obviously pestering producers in this manner bares fruit. the paper tree ep ranges from a beautiful solitary solo piano piece that wouldn t be amiss in a british period piece drama where someone dies unexpectedly leaving the survivors to deal with it. all the while maintaining their stiff upper lip. fly the kite made us want to go outside and do just that. so we did. it was epic. circles and squares joins paper tree as one of those dance floor moments best experienced with ones eyes closed. myriad is the sound of a young lady robots jewelry box (yes. we predict robots will be wearing jewelry in the future) that she(bot) pines to hear when she s all grown up and rusty. omoshiroi is. well. its just so damn pretty. good work rebelski. good work.

born in poland and now operating out of the ever-effervescent london. the adoptive city where she’s learnt the ropes of music production and djing. anii – real name ania iwinska – has lived many lives in one. yet if one thing’s remained a constant over the years. no matter the harshness of the obstacles life threw at her. it’s indeed a deep and inextinguishable love for music. be it behind the mixing desk at wired studios or in her own shoreditch workroom. the key place where she’s kept honing her skills with unfazed diligence. up to the point of making it her actual second home. ań......ii lands her debut transmission on kompakt and surely not the last. named after the polish word for ‘roots’. ‘korzenie’ finds ania threading her way in between subtle deep-house and techno folds. delving into the essential strength of her past and present to carve out an hypnotic maelstrom of traditional polish music strings. tribal percussions and elegiac melodies. coupling eerie ostinatos with stealthy bass moves. it’s an ode to the magnitude of memory and power of resilience that reels out. blurring the line between late night club environment and further spacious. moony soundscapes.

the pampa. filled with enigmatic lines and geoglyphs known as nazca. gives name to this record label. nazca records was created to collect the music that viracochas (beings of other worlds). shared with the ancient nazca people. known for their love for music. dance and nature. these recordings represent the music that was once played in another time and that will be played again in the future…they are the memories of the future. each vinyl and recording tells a story of the memories from each ceremony that took place in the pampa colorada. from music that was played. and of the figures and lines that the nazcas used to show their gratitude to the viracochas. maybe you’re wondering how its possible or how we were able to capture those recordings in nazca records to then press to vinyl. it has been discovered that if an intelligent or exotic species wanted to connect to others. they would use radio signals as they can travel any distance and require very little energy to send. the logical wave frequency to communicate would be 1420 megahertz. which is the frequency irradiated by the neutral hydrogen. when its atoms interact between each other. based on this info and knowing that hydrogen is the most abundant element in space. and after a lot of tries. in the end we were finally able to make the first contact with the viracochas! this third vinyl contains recordings of the viracocha thodoris triantafillou. a disc. a journey. a history. a contact narrated along 2 tracks and completed by the remix of one of the most famous viracochas remembered love over entropy.

the third installment from barcelona’s nitsa club record label digs into uncharted territories. if the first release was a strong and balanced mixture between ebm and minimal techno and the second one paid a heartfelt and honest homage to detroit electronic heroes. sau poler’s ‘orchestron’ decides to draw a line between emotional melodies and techno rhythms while keeping a strong peak time momentum. young producer from badalona who already released on labels like atomnation. modern obscure music and lo recordings. sau knows how to build a banger with soul without being too cheesy. with an insane pulsating baseline. some high pitched synth swirls and a crispy rhythm that resembles a krautrock drum machine. ‘orchestron’ will be played a lot during the next months.
on the b-side there’s a remix from estrato aurora. 50% of lontano. legendary electronic band during the early 00’s in valencia. jaime romero takes away the cheerful playful disco that made him famous to a psychedelic and obsessive deep techno.

it s been a while since we last heard from flord king. who has popped up on junk yard connections as well as regularly featuring on lyssna. it s the latter label he returns to now. and he s got some focused. stripped down club fare to impart. -el klassiko- is a shuffling. funky minimal house jam with some wriggling melodies and a subby bass throb. while -avocado in blue- does a quirkier turn with some crafty synth flex that really stands out from the crowd. -bob- too is a distinctive cut with some detailed layers of dubby ripples and errant computer debris quivering and shaking over the mellow pads and steady beat. -deep diff- twists out some cheeky bass and an overall emotive mood that ends the record on a poignant tip.
as the wind whistles through your hair. everything passes you by in a blur. faster and faster you go. faster and more terrifyingly into the abyss you fall. you scream with a mixture of panic and joyful abandon half wanting this to never end but knowing that it will anytime now: a smile creeps across your face. and as it ends. you breathe a sigh of relief. wistfully remembering with powerful emotive accuracy before hurriedly joining the back of the queue for another go - after all. it s just a ride. life is very much like the blitzbahn . it goes up and down. round and round and for much of the ride. we never know what s going to happen. here on his fifth studio album. oliver schories explores all the fun of the fair across 13 expansive cuts that showcase his incredible knack for straddling that house/techno mid-point with consummate ease. some artists take years to craft their albums. agonising over every detail before. frustratingly. deleting the whole project and starting again. oliver. however. is as prolific as he is confident of his ability to construct the kind of dance floor bombs that have helped him to build a significant head of steam in the underground.

pale blue. the duo of elizabeth wight and mike simonetti. released their debut album too much critical acclaim back in 2015. they come together once again with their latest ep you stopped dying due to drop on crosstown rebels in february. the you stopped dying ep takes influence from shoegaze groups like slowdive and my bloody valentine and moves it to the dance floor. the result is a strange hybrid that some have called technogaze. this would never work if liz wasnt such a strong vocalist. her amazing vocal range makes it easy. mike simonetti pale blue is a hypnotic affair. the driving bass sitting perfectly under wight’s powerful yet ethereal vocals. daughter of babylon takes the record into heavier techno territory with its thudding bass and wights breathy vocals delicately layered over the top. on the flip side love is an unapologetically industrial number with screeching synths that echo around wights vocals. simonetti and wight have each earned their musical stripes in their own rights. simonetti founded the hugely popular italians do it better as well as his own successful record label. 2mr. he’s released a slew of records on highly regarded imprints such as me me me. correspondant and public release. and enjoys a fruitful career as a touring dj. which shows no sign of abating. wight has previously lent her exhilarating vocals to the west coast band. silver hands of which she was once one half
