what do you get when you cross a frenchman. a dane. two irishmen and a swede? the debut various artists compilation from kyoku records. of course. gathering the producers who make up their whole discography thus far. the melbourne-based imprint are welcoming back dorsi plantar. sune. long island sound and ethyene (alongside folamour and marc bianco). translating from japanese to a befitting -dancing birds-. the odoru tori ep is revitalizing the elegant origami series for one last spin. the orizuru. hachidori. oumu and hakucho. that is. the paper crane. the hummingbird. the parrot and the swan are bringing the handmade array to a suitable conclusion. on the a side. the scandinavian connection is responsible for bringing some summer heat. dorsi plantar sheds his usual wistfulness for a slightly moodier. more functional track with -senorita lolita-. although still incorporating some of that playful sampling he s now come to be known for. -californicate- from sune takes a more laidback approach and channels the breezy and carefree atmosphere of the coastal golden state. on the flip side. long island sound follow the same recipe that made -delusions- such a big hit with the intricate sampling and eloquent arrangement of -ease in-. to top things off. ethyene. with the help of folamour and marc bianco. close out the record with a groovy. vocal number that sees them employ their signature french touch formula to great effect on the simply titled -good-.
in many ways. it s difficult to believe wehbba only dropped his first full-length ep on drumcode this year. released in february. the four-tracker eclipse was a monster statement piece of the brazilians talents and followed on superbly from fake. his contribution to last year s a-sides vol.6 inarguably one of the biggest tracks on the compilation. with the confirmation that wehbba will take part in drumcode s off week party in barcelona. followed by the brand s takeover of resistance in ibiza. its indisputable proof that his crisp. chord-driven take on techno has become a vital component to the expansive palette of sound adam beyer has drawn for the label in 2018 and beyond. catarse marks the rapid-fire follow-up from the prolific producer. opening with the eerie she lost control. wehbba says he took inspiration from the joy division track of almost the same name (‘she s lost control ). but instead of crafting the dense sonic atmosphere with vocals. he employs an analogue kick drum and stealth-like moog bass with dramatic results. process follows. a cut which begun as a cover jam of laurent garnier s crispy bacon and ends up incorporating the cut-up vocals of legendary minimal composer steve reich. who is one of wehbba s chief inspirators. the resulting track is an ice-cool percussive work that s rich in dancefloor functionalism. the title track will be familiar to many who follow drumcode radio. a goose-bump inducing highlight of beyers dcr392 at awakenings in eindhoven. catarse is driven by a memorable melodic riff resplendent in 90s techno euphoria. the ep concludes with the terrific mind awake. a powerful concoction of reverb heavy basslines and glitchy effects. that s been thoroughly road tested by both beyer and wehbba and kicks like a rodeo bull.

rico puestel is a phenomenon and currently one of the best artists around when it comes to solid. discerning techno. thats techno that takes no detours. doesnt hide behind vocal samples or need unnecessary. pseudo-intelligent tinkering to get the listeners attention. puestels two current cocoon contributions equity and immunised are strongly reminiscent of caravel. which he also released on cocoon recordings almost exactly a year ago. the mini breaks and prolonged dramatic pauses are all pieces in the puzzle of puestels arrangement and together with the hypnotic beats and constantly radiating synths and effects. they make up his own interpretation of techno sound. it buzzes. it shines and with the right pa its exactly the type of vibe that help us forget the daily grind of dance music madness! that ubiquitous let the bass kick sample hasnt felt so at home for a long time!
setaoc mass fourth record for figure displays a level of maturity an artist this young rarely inhabits. two tracks feature his ability to craft finely layered idm. showing another perspective of the ideas behind the cavernous techno taking up the rest of this ep. nestled between the electronica-pieces is torque. heavy yet undeniably beautiful with its big breaks towards ascension. moving effortlessly despite its weight. things turn serious on the flip side. bursting with bleeps and bulging beats. b1 is a slowly swelling beast with many heads. twisting and turning ceaselessly along its 6-minute runtime. never once letting the tension decline. spiraling inwards for a full-on mind trip. search lights is that key track to drop in the murkiest. darkest hour of the night. one that cuts through relentlessly and unites whatever is left of the dancefloor for one last frenzied commotion.

conforce returns under his silent harbour guise this august with the ‘noctiluca’ mini lp. a six track collection set for release via copenhagen’s echocord. dutch producer boris bunnik has been releasing material under various guises over the past two decades such as conforce. versalife. hexagon. vernon felicity and of course silent harbour which he revisits here following 2015’s ‘hinterland’ on deep sound channel and the self-tilted inauguration of the project in 2012 on echocord. the beatless drones of ‘riparian’ open the package. perfectly setting the tone with murky bell like chimes. rumbling subs and splashes of white noise before title-track ‘noctiluca’ picks up the pace. tipping the focus over to bubbling dub echoes. glitched out. minute percussion and a sturdy muted kick to keep things driving. ‘dwelling’ is up next. featuring expansive. washed out synth textures. cavernous bass tones and modulating percussion throughout. leading on the b-side of the release is ‘peridinum’. employing classic dub techno tropes with an amalgamation of choppy stab sequences dynamically evolving over off-beat hats and a thunderous kick. ‘fusiformis’ strips things rhythmically whilst keeping the bubbling delays and expansive reverbs at it’s core before closing track ‘pelagia’ brings bright. resonant synth lines. delayed percussive hits and tension building synth bass into the limelight.
echocord’s echo echo sub-label continues with its third releases this august. courtesy of german producer and credo founder alex bau with his ‘zenstory’ ep. germany’s alex bau has been a prominent name on the underground dj circuit on his home turf. and further afield. for three decaces as well as racking up an impressive back catalogue as a recording artists for labels like cocoon. clr. sleaze and of course his very own credo label which has been a platform predominantly for his own material whilst welcoming the likes of kyle geiger. takkyu ishino and electric rescue onto the imprint also. here though we see bau joining the roster of echocord’s fledgling sub-label echo echo with a new four-track ep and taking the lead on the package is ‘clouds’ with pulsating low-end tones. hissing analogue noise and dusty drums samples all flowing in unison with ethereal chords and sweeping pads. ‘contour’ follows. tipping the focus over to bubbling delayed stab hits. fluttering sub bass and evolving white noise bursts throughout. the ‘prelude’ of ‘zenstory’ opens the flip side and as the name would suggest it’s a cinematic build up to the title-track featuring tension-building. expansive atmospherics ahead of the original mix which features a thumping muted kick. stuttering atmospheric echoes and spoken word vocal tucked into the depths of the record.
just imagine a unlimited number of invisible sensory tentacles sprouting from the brain striaght to exploring the future. for some years now innervisions are in good relation with toto. more and more they see creations develish detailed and deep as hell - harmony somewhere.

when commissioning remixes. the best labels think outside the box. that s exactly what firecracker s lindsay todd did when seeking out producers to rework tracks from linkwood s excellent expressions album. on this second 12- in an ongoing series. that faith has paid dividends. whereas the original version of ignorance is bliss was a warm. woozy. sun-kissed deep house affair. healing force project has reinvented it as a stargazing chunk of 21st century space jazz. complete with twinkling chords. low-slung double bass and reverb-laden drum solos. the musephased interpretation of love lost by kimochi label head area sticks closer to the ultra-deep. melancholic vibe of linkwood s original. but adds a frisson of excitement via bubbling. detroit-influenced electronics and hypnotic rhythms.

some time around 20 years ago. the artist known as dub surgeon made an absorbing album of beautiful dub infused with ambiance. found sounds and horizontal rhythms. the lost future was recorded at the former amsterdam film academy where dub surgeon. the recording engineer for the project was ricardo villalobos. dub surgeon and ricardo villalobos then mastered it together. putting it through several vintage mixers and recording it to 2 inch tape. then. tragedy struck: a storm surged and ignited a fire that ravaged the studio. the master copy was thought to have been lost forever. dub surgeon stopped making music and disappeared into the shadows after just two eps on future dub in 2002/3. but one day 15 years later. totally out of the blue. he received a demo of the lost future. pay attention to this. it said. attached was a demo version of the long lost album and now. finally. it has a perfect and impossibly poetic home on dubais ark to ashes. which is named in homage to the story of lee scratch perry burning down his black ark studio to rid it of demons. sounding as fresh as ever. the lost future is an authentic dub experience with a story as special as the music itself.
