k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k”, from the title to the sounds, is intended to be a more personal project for paul ritch – indelibly closer to the confluences of sounds that he hears embodying the spirit of kaczmarek. he drives the mind’s eye deep into the inner-ear with the album’s spacious opening tracks, only to leave your head bobbing with the extraterrestrial rhythms that emerge as the main body of the album. moody and foreboding, loaded with the scattered, staccato and broken beats, more ovular than linear in composition and ranging from vaporous-ambience to hyperventilating grooves, the nine tracks on this album defy categorisation. the “k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k” album will give the listener a deep well to return to. the vinyl release will be a fittingly rare issue – only 100 numbered copies are going out, while digital releases will run parallel. keeping with the dark and cryptic theme of the first releases russian artist, sasha sime, is back for his third kczmrk cover design

after the success of the double lp kepler 438 on be as one, the well known shlomi aber imprint , orbe is back with even more energy and strength with his new lp -interplant”. the emerging artist from madrid whose tracks are regularly supported by the likes of marcel dettmann, nina kraviz, maceo plex and john talabot, presents his new 3x12’’ long player featuring fifteen tracks. orbe’s early years in music were shaped by broken rhythms which is worked into the ‘internplant’ lp as he fuses futuristic and cosmic sounds as a nexus.a new step forward for his career and a sonic palette which he wants to focus on right now. hybrid sequences taking inspiration from andromeda/buchla lem3 spider synthesizers and sampling of old school breaks have helped to create compositions like “what happens with strangers”, “revival” “deejay drama” and “virtual environment” where orbe mixes classic and futuristic sounds to create something current and referencing his origins. other singles like “multi filament light” “closer people dreams” and “the old ideology” were written as visionary works without percussive elements. they include atemporal melodies which try to involve to the more exigent listener. “data nights” “thematic exploration” and “higher dimensions influences” show the artist’s darker and more techno focused inspirations. here we can find metallic industrial sounds fused with minimalist precision to create brooding tension. “unreal”, “interplant” and “subground dehumidification” lay focus purely on the dance floor, characterised as a dynamic peak time tool accompanied perfectly with harmonic and glitched out pads.
i am havayah, all life is sacred! one of the most important pioneers in techno history, johannes heil, with a new side project and long awaited release on his very own and new imprint >sacred<. music as spiritual and healing art combined with a wonderful artwork. there is nothing more to say about this record. just listen and feel it.
the hidden meaning of number 13 is change, the death of something and its rebirth. this is the idea behind gabriel dor & bordoys new album 13, which is meant to be a turning point on their career. influenced by old school techno but also by modern sounds, after 6 years of production partnership, theyve decided to release their first entirely unpublished lp. the album, made out of 13 cuts, starts with a dark intro that paves the way into a forceful kind of techno, followed by vintage sounds with gloomy touches and sometimes even emotional ones. they have used many instruments and samples discovered along the way on this composition process, plus lots of others found in the previous years. the sounds put together on this album have been carefully picked to preserve their uniqueness, while trying to walk on a different path.
illusion of randomness is the debut release by swedish artist sissel wincent. as a part of the music collective droemfakulteten, sissel has already proven herself to be a skilled live performer possessing tons of raw talent and self confidence.
part 1/2 of his amazing album. intelligent communication. since 1967, astronomers have been receiving and cataloging very precisely timed radio pulses coming from sources they call pulsars. they have long assumed these to be natural sources, exotic spinning stars that emit laser-like radio beams that sweep through space much like lighthouse signal sequences. highly regular flashes and complex signal ordering are produced through intelligent modulation of their beam s intensity and direction of polarization. more significantly, through their seemingly purposeful geometrical alignments, pulsars appear to be conveying a coherent message. are these beacons from an intelligent origin? and are they warning beacons to warn us against the next shockwave that comes of the active galactic nucleus ore want they attack us? it might be prudent to consider whether we are talking about friends or foes.....mike storm.

>cissi moon changed my life! it was in a now refurbished part of stockholm in a futuristic cafe/club called holger that i had my first encounter with loudly played club music. the night was called db and we lined up with our fake ids every saturday to hear cissi moon spin drum & bass records and let the bass engulf our beings.< >at the time the art of making electronic music was totally alien to me, i could not for the life of me work out how to ever make music that carried the same emotional and physical impact as i felt on that dance floor. i have spent the last 17 years or so trying to get back to that state of being at one and completely lost with the music.< this record concludes a trilogy of eps by peder mannerfelt on his eponymously named label. what comes next is everything and beyond.
RED BODDEN (2X12 INCH / COLOURED VINYL / GATEFOLD COVER)
coloured 2x12" Vinyl gatefold cover D17.08.15
iron me debuts on resopal for a grand sonic journey not only to the vibrant heart of the dancefloor. coupling contemporary 4/4 tracks with a bit unusual resopal style breakbeatish-tinged soundscapes and deep deep dub, iron me acts as both a skillfully composed portfolio of personal memories and a sublime collection of charming cuts. his unique mélange of emotional and functional elements works exceptionally well for the full-length format. each cut operates as its own little time capsule, storing bits and pieces of recollection and then magically transforming them into epic, beat-driven soundscapes. red bodden is an album for dancing wildly, relaxing, hoovering the house and losing yourself. a true musical journey.
this year is the 2nd year of polen and right now we are presenting the fifth record. louis is a drummer, a bassist, a musician and a dancer and this is his ep for polen. it was a lot of recreating and a lot of shifting to get the end result, but it was worth waiting for. music for dancefloor, for mornings and afternoons, for dancing feet and chosen ears. the art work is made by anne-sophie kneer.
the munich born sound architect has released 13 eps, two long payers and numerous mixes in her distinctive extravagant and charismatic style. her music includes techno productions as well as -music for theater-. we picked up on cio when she moved to cologne several years ago and appreciate her as an exceptional human being and as a tastemaker. this is the second release she has done with us. her hypnotic djs sets enchant clubbers around the world, from berlins berghaim to people in tokyo. her track >off< describes a biotope in which two different poles gently collide. rooms of reverb meet orchestral sounds meet acoustic clicks, in a process of an ongoing motion, where there is no beginning and no end. the flip side highlights >and on< shows white horses amids the waves of sounds. this track could be an electronic soundtrack to a day at an isolated beach in the indian ocean. enjoy.
the latest instalment from par grindviks techno institution stockholm ltd sees stefan vincent making his label debut, lining up with the persuader and a&s on the a-side to deliver 3 lush listening pieces ranging from dub to ambient. the flip side features two works of titanic, timeless techno from stefan vincent and par grindvik himself.
brilliant and conceptual reinterpretation of coldfish debut album on all inn records. the orphans remixes contains 8 different approaches of 8 geniously artists from the modern electronic music scene. just as the original release this album is also beautifully composed and it shows a large scale of shades from experimental electronics by the ambient-electronica heroes lenta and eril fjord, through the well-known techno statues of all inn records: verrina & ventura, kamran sadeghi, roger gerressen and andy kolwes until guest remixers like s.a.m. and peter dildo (rozzo, mountain people). first class material, all in one! must have!

nice price deal !!! flight to the moon is the result of a year-long journey by dutch producers dimi angelis and jeroen search. it is both their first album as a&s and their first full-length record together. like the explorers whose journey is musically documented by flight to the moon, angélis and search set out to discover where this record would lead them. throughout the course of twenty tracks flight to the moon tells the story of a group of spacetravelers. it chronicles their ascent into the vast unknown and their uncovering of things as of yet unrevealed. what will they find? and what will their findings tell them? the tracks on the album – which they will release on their own a&s imprint – are diverse yet homogenous. they meander, transferring a sense of dangerous and potentially deadly encounter at one moment and then capturing a feeling of exciting amazement at another. most crucially, flight to the moon is more than just a collection of techno tracks. in fact, to think of it in cut-out genres is to limit the scope of the album’s musical offerings. search and angélis aimed to shape a record that would defy their own notion of techno. that journey can now be heard by all.
we are very excited to present -collecting the moments-, the debut full length album from the vastly admired producer and mastering engineer, nikos fragomanolakis. this double lp (180 gramm) masterpiece is constructed of tranquil soundscapes, minimalistic rhythms and warm dub undertones. a deep and expressive sound that resonates with all, yet is totally unique to nikosf.
let -exu- under your skin and you will find a dream worth every breath and heartbeat it takes. this dream belongs to you now and it s up to you how you make it your own.
-exu- was written by andre kronert over a six month period. andre kronert, our hero of deep grooves, is a true knight of the electronic scene, a great supporter that never sleeps and always puts our music and our well-being first. without andre s helping hand and passion, things would surely not be the same.
andre, thank you for everything you do, for sharing your feelings and your dreams! stockholm limited

two years have passed since his release at sandwell district and after his remix contribution to sawf’s sand ep, belgian producer, yves de mey, returns to modal analysis with a two-track ep. the first track allures the listener to an abstract heavy sound, whereas, the second track follows a more distinct rhythmic structure. both tracks create an atmospheric environment with the use of modular sounds. the ep wraps up with a shifted club remix of the first track.

man haette die platte auch >melancholie der seligen< nennen koennen, wenn der titel nicht schon von rainald goetz besetzt waere. so finden wir hier zwei autarke stuecke vor die gleichsam diabolischen ursprungs sind und vielleicht die frage beantworten können, ob ein leben im vakuum tatsaechlich moeglich ist oder ob das reale einfach nur nicht mehr greifbar ist. entscheidet selbst!.. 205 hand stamped and numbered copies with a special sticker
autumn days are coming quite near and with >jahreszwei< – an ambient tape by berlin based artist the marx trukker – we deliver the soundtrack for that more thoughtful time of the year. as the 4-track ep is put together chronological (starting with the track that was produced last), the a-side is more dark and dusty (roughly produced beginning of autumn with an electric bass, an old portastudio and loads of forbidden recording-techniques) while the b-side shines a bit brighter and lighter (produced digital end of summer, concentrating on the dave smith evolver synthesizer only). so take a walk through a forest next to you and enjoy the beautiful autumn-nature while having >jahreszwei< on your ears!
