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.
donna steaks are the world s greatest tracks - and i mean that in every sense of the word. these tracks are. by far. the best sounding. most flavorful rave you ve ever had - truly in a league of their own. treat yourself to the very. very best life has to offer. one beat and you ll know exactly what i m talking about. believe me: i understand rave. it s my favorite sound. and donna steaks are the best.
step back trax takes a step up to the vinyl game with its second release. a collection of 6 smoking tracks by various artists from all around the globe. the style range is wide with some warm sampled cuts. as well as some club ready bangers.
pinkmans broken dreams welcome a new midnight malcontent into the fold. ernestas sadau debuts with his first 12inch - gonzo on tour. sirens blare. samples hiss in a haze of static before a grizzled snare introduces riots in jail near kaunas. grubby basslines curl into shards of acid. full figured thump sweetened by fragile bars. crackheads from lyon is steeped in the traditions of garage bands and d.i.y. punk. strings snarl and sneer at crashing drum beats. lonesome notes floating in the surge. the foul tempered hiroshima (acid breaks your body mix) demands the flip. beats break and buckle under the leer of lewd 303 lines. a finale bubbling over with violent intent.
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.

the underdogg is the title of dj tre’s debut ep for hyperdub. he had two brilliant tracks featured on our dj rashad tribute compilation next life. but compared to other longterm members of the teklife footwork crew. he hasn’t released much. so we’re very happy to bring him out to play again here. tre has been about since the early days. born and raised on the south side of chicago. encouraged by the late dj rashad and his partner dj spinn. he has been making tracks since 1999. over a decade before footwork’s ascent to global popularity. on this ep his sound. for the most part is rooted in the speedy 4/4 of juke. it features a sparse and minimalist take on footwork but he’s got a knack of adding in tight little switches and details that keep the tracks moving as essential dance floor weapons.
applause. applause! your hands are in chains but you still enjoyed the show. drowned records is bringing you a qnete jam that can be described as nothing else but a psycho banger . included is also a second version of the track. milkshaking the original for a more fruity fun affair. finally. leibniz dark remix is slowing things down a little hitting all drumheads with every extremity and other strange things. clap clap!
