ltd 2019 repress , black vinyl- the next acid record and the thirs installment of the acid seduction series is finished ! this time influenced by heckmann s japan tours, friends, fans and the ever on-time high tech train shinkansen :-) and a very nice coincidence, the train we took to kyoto one day was called nozomi 303 !
limited 2019 repress , black vinyl- no need to say much about thomas p. heckmanns silent breed project, that turned, twisted, smashed and rocked big time in the 90s and into the new millenium ! acid fucker is still a must at every decent acid rave, sync in crashed the dummies of the german trainspotters
ltd 2019 repress , black vinyl - for all the acid that is coming out through this so-called -acid revival- i was somehow missing the good old hook of the 90s acid-techno tracks. after countless requests to do some new acid again it finally clicked with me and i had this - in my opinion - great acid hook to jump along to for the acid to the future track. i really love this one and it could ve been big in the 90s i guess...so hopefully this will click with the listeners also today :-) acid funk and acid jaxx pretty much speak for themselves and are funky groovin acid tracks with a more modern touch mixed with the old vibe flavour. machine banger is definitely on the harder side and was done for ferox this is acid... nothing else- va compilaton on kobayashi.hands up and have fun... we love and release on vinyl !
last copies arriving in january for a special price!
since it’s inception in 1991 on the streets of glasgow, soma records has stood for uncompromising quality of the highest level in every area it operates. stuart mcmillan & orde meikle formed slam during the acid house explosion in the late 80’s and then together with friends glenn gibbons & dave clarke they forged one of electronic music’s most widely known and well respected labels. with mcmillan & meikle as the figureheads with their slam project and influenced by the early detroit techno scene, soma quickly began to develop it’s own sound and with their eyes firmly fixed on a vision of the future, the team began the quest to instill their unquenchable thirst for electronic music into the world around them. soma quickly became an international brand as slam’s anthemic “positive education” brought about an electronic renaissance that saw the group thrust into the limelight and green lit the furious rise of the label.

in the late 80s i started listening to uk radio stations when i was a little kid and i instantly fell in love with the acid sound and rave movement that was portrayed on those uk dance shows. when i got old enough to attend clubs and warehouse raves, to experience the movement first hand, it was a nobrainer for me that the music and the lifestyle was my call. lately…. in my dj sets and when producing music… i have been time travelling back to those days. back to how i remember the music i fell so deeply in love with and that is exactly what you hear on this “done/undone” release. for the “done” track i teamed up with cari golden to have a female spoken word and a great message to build the music around. i always prefer to do original vocal recordings rather than using samples. cari understood 100% what i was after and i love the lyrics and execution by her. the spoken word is centered, very clear and deep to contrast the constantly building intensity of the acid patterns and thumping beats. “undone” is instrumental and has a more straight forward flow to it. it’s quite simple although the shifting groove patterns might surprise some. i was torn between two different acid patterns and decided to drop one of them as a surprise change. playing the track in clubs i quickly learned that the change of dynamics had a great effect. both tracks have been wrapped in dark-themed chords and atmosphere. both tracks have my take on the sound i fell in love with years ago and obviously still love today. i hope you like what you hear.
a huge classic is back! involve, as its name suggests, try to co-involve people with all the related activities of the label and their artists, creating a bi-directional sense of communication. in between two tendencies, involve collects the classics techno rhythms from detroit and berlin, being true to the origins seasoned with modern touches.
exile is the next level basecamp of johannes heil. we at exile know that it is nonsense to write anything about music, because music can only be translated by listeners ear. so close your eyes. dont speak. dont think. just listen..... we are exile. mastering and cut my dubplates and mastering berlin.
following three eps and one lp fabrizio rat releases his second solo album on odd/even, german label by andre kronert. the album is conceived entirely for the dancefloor, with no rest and no breathe, no ambient or >quiet< tracks. melodies emerge at times, resulting from original orchestrations of piano and machines. at other times more violent and static textures explore the extreme repetitions of piano harmonics, combined with slowly evolving filter-sweeping hypnosis. outstanding coverprint. shrinked and dj friendly 140g pressing. mastering and cut by cgb at dubplates and mastering. artwork by markus suckut and cover picture by fabrizio rat himself. manufactured by matter of fact.
jammin unit is not only my brother but one of the most prolific producer of electronic music since the early days of techno. he is one half of legendary electronic super group air liquide and made his way into history books with tracks like -if the was no gravity- and -revelation- lately featured on nina kraviz - fabric 91 mix.
this release is composed by a solid techno original mix and a brilliant remix produced by german maestro tobias. (tobias freund). the prominent, edgy and dark soul of the original mix produced by fragmentor is highlighted in the middle of the track when the acid synth line wisely grows congruently with the other elements, gradually creating great tension and a hypnotic effect in a far from obvious way. tobias. remakes black tartan using the elements in a surprising way delivering an elegant, unforgettable mesmerizing journey.
hot on the heels of his album r.u.r on boysnoize, djedjotronic aka jérémy cottereau drops an icy 4 track electro cut for cpu. we knew we wanted to work with cottereau after hearing his and maelstrom s lost echoes project (see maelstrom s alph4 e.p. on cpu). there s a clear drexciyan influence here with plenty of dystopian drama but things are disrupted with the likes of tunnel serving up raw 4/4.
mechatronica drops another forceful electro release, this time with a diverse collection of new and familiar faces in kosh, ocb, jauzas the shining and ersatz olfolks.
the moroccan casa voyager crew conducts the a-side in style, kosh carefully manufacturing an expanding, fat and spacey electro drive while ocb laces old school electro flavours with breaks, acid and devastating groove.
on the flip, harder and darker electro sounds evolve as decade-long french electro producer jauzas the shining drops a potent electro/acid track in “machine”, followed by the relentless energy of “stella” - a murky, ever-intensifying journey through electro, breaks and industrial soundscapes by french producer ersatz olfolks.
the palm trees whistle in the pink meteor shower. an entanglement of nature’s mystical tones settle. sonics trigger movement in the oceans crust while giants filter the earth’s waters, thrusting the waters with their gnarly space knobs. the damsel in distress is a hadronic mechanical design like no other, moulded, tested and shaped by the entheogen melanges of the omegian race. many a cosmic knight whipped there sword out to retrieve , but in rightful and aware conquest the dilation and deja vu of multidimensional experiences returned the opal tone to the omega men. the midi rain will dance , and the grooving aqua orbs of life will continue on. - eddie
label head amelie lens herself creates a banging techno record. three tracks full of energy acid techno. holding steady after a much busy 2017 season that saw her multiply releases on the likes of pan-pot imprint, second state or arts, belgian techno architect amelie lens is now set to release her debut solo outing on her own label lenske, following an ep from the newcomer milo spykers and a fine collaborative effort with fellow antwerp-based producer farrago, featuring a remix from ostgut ton protégé kobosil.
