this is the 5th release on riot radio records. an independent techno label based in scotland. here are 12 artists (the horrorist. paul birken. neil landstrumm. cannibal cooking club. nomad. durkit. dez williams. martyn hare. cymbol. binny. morphamish and lado) each with a wicked track for the first of many sampler lp’s on riot. it’s named a sampler because it is just that. a sample of the various artists and forms of techno that can be heard on our fortnightly riot radio show and also of what’s to come on the label from each of the artists featuring on the lp. that’s because each artist appearing on this lp will be delivering you their own individual release on the label. with each one featuring brand new original tracks and additional solid remixes by various exceptionally talented artists.
the jam starts with -orange sunshine- (doesn t it always?) of course as usual it takes a while to kick in and by the time it does it s obvious helltown acid militia are back with their time warping spaceship. by the second track -still turning- the fog clears a little. but there are still echoes of a time past. what is it? can t quite put my finger on it... on the flip we are met with chunky 909 rhythms in -more important-. because what s more important than a 909 rhythm track? for the final outing -broadcast- (which may be the real hidden gem here) the tempo drops and there s chord stabs. strings and talk of ufos. its at this point that you realise that the label on the record has a picture of mitzi the cat. in a space suit. holding a white 303!! this acid really is a trip.
2018 repress .how much do you really know about nina kraviz? shes a russian techno dj. an accomplished producer. one of dance musics breakthrough names of the last five years. true enough. but theres so much more to her story than that. shes one of electronic musics most interesting characters. someone who has stuck to her musical guns since day one. someone who has wide-ranging roots that run deep in the past. yet shes also the embodiment of the future. her signature sound is a raw blend of house and techno with a very acidic feel. if that feels very now. kraviz has a lot to do with it. which is why she was asked to mix the latest instalment of !k7s landmark dj kicks series.
dm002 showcases 5 dance floor cuts from keita sano. lucretio. alter-d. bioroot. and asymmetrical. this ep was inspired by the video games jet set radio and jsrf. some of the soundtracks for jsr and jsrf were produced by the latch brothers (including mike d from the beastie boys). and features tracks from other great musicians such as cibo matto.
the artwork of this release captures the essence of the video game and the ep within. hazy nights out in the capital. neon lights. high rises and 4:00 am eats.
betonkust immediately blended in with the 9300 family and it felt like we ve been knowing each other for years and years. after his characteristic remix on innershades latest ep (aal006). it was only a matter of time before he would deliver his own release on our label. with varied percussions. hard kicks and dark synths. the 0% swing ep brings you back to a time when belgian highways were still lavisly flanked by discotheques and afterhours clubs. an era that counts as one of the most beatiful pages in belgian dance history and of which betonkust probably has more knowledge than most of our fellow-countrymen. all four tracks on this proper release produce a thrilling energy that will bring those sleepy ravers. from the 90 s. back to life.

12" Vinyl D04.12.17
vinyl only. alex took his first musical steps by studying piano and guitar at the young age of 6. his fascination for the more outlandish. experimental side of each instrument corrupted his lessons and sent him down a modular synths and tape loop composition wormhole. years later alex resurfaced. got himself clean and. through connections made while spending time as a vocal audience member (and sometimes uninvited participant) at lyman woodard. phil ranelin. and other tribe- and motown-linked gigs in cass corridor during the mid-1970s. spent time as a session musician for earth wind and fire. chic. and prince. it was only toward the mid-90s he found himself enthralled by the techno and house sounds of detroit and chicago so he went into the woodshed and came out firing electronic salvos.

los angeles based natan h and malta based artist owen jay return as gauss with their first ep of 2017. entitled resonator it offers more deep music with an electronic soul and is their fifth ep for their cultured label gauss ltd. the title track opens things up with a crunchy and impactful mix of weighty dub drums and spangled techno chords. it s a heavy track that builds in momentum and is sure to mangle minds with its skewed stabs and wiry electronics. shifted is a more fierce techno track with urgency in the kicks and a sense of anger in the coarse little snare explosions. more gurgling synths add weight and this one is a real stomper as a result. cutting ever more loose. odyssey is a mix of idm sound design. soulful synth smears and percolating electro tinged drums that are slick and futuristic. least squares completes this techno picture with spitting hits and claps. underwater chords and acidic sonar pulses that soothe the mind. this is an expansive ep that marks an exciting evolution in gauss s sound.
