prospector 01 presents the experimentations of pit spector, ark and losoul. sharing productions tricks and incorporating many different samples, instruments and hardware, brothers pit and ark create a highly distinctive piece with ‘song for everyone’. quite unlike anything in your current record bag and bursting with a plethora of flavours, this is one of those grooves you just can’t put in a box. ‘red sun’ is a mesmerising techno number. highly addictive and plagued with the voice of the terminator, it sucks you in and sends you spiralling back out. given the losoul treatment it reincarnates itself as the evil twin. darker and more minimal in form, it’s stark persona pushes the 3am dancefloor to the very edge.
james dean brown is no new comer. more than 30 years ago his live experiments with pietro insipido on drum machine setups were undoubtedly in the front-line of sonic innovation. before techno was even a thing, hypnobeat was already more techno than most of nowadays outputs, specially after jdb’s encounter with victor sol and tobias freund in 1984 when the project became a proper, fully electronic outfit. in 1995, hypnobeat evolved to narcotic syntax, a band he boosted together with yapacc in 2003, with releases on perlon, wir and prospector. now, after joining forces with helena hauff, hypnobeat is back and its essence remains entirely preserved, along with its wild, free-styled approach to hypnosurfing drum arrangements.
