r&s newcomer karim sahraoui delivers an ep of deep. emotive techno that draws on the rich legacy of detroit while staying relevant for the modern era. sahraoui is a globetrotting seeker of musical truth spending time in malaysia. italy and spain as well as his native france. he recorded in the early 2000s to some acclaim as djinxx. releasing prolifically for delsin. cocoon. f-com bedrock. and ovum amongst others. in 2009 he took a couple of years out from the industry. travelling to malaysia to find himself. in 2011 a chance meeting reconnected sahraoui with derrick may. who he originally met in the late 90s. may was reactivating transmat and persuaded karim to let him release his music. but on the condition it be under his own name. the resulting pair of eternal life eps in 2014 and 2016 marked his rich return to form glorious melodic. contemplative techno in the classic motor city mode. his plenitude ep for r&s builds on similar positive themes - from the percolating arpeggios and mystic melodies of spy of the desert. to the anthemic jazzy techo paen of born again or the aching symphonic build of before the 2nd coming its clear that after decades in the business sahraouis talent is only growing rather than diminishing. i wanted to give it more spirituality. musicality and roots with the choice of the sounds. going back in the past and transcribe everything with visionary fusions. sahraoui explains.

dj seinfeld presents an immersive ep exploring the balance between fragility and force. ‘sakura ep’ is the third and most dynamic offering from deep sea frequency. four tracks draw from a multitude of influences. breaks. electro. dub and trance elements band together with a familiar lo-fidelity approach where distortion acts as an instrument of its own. ‘sakura’ is a subaquatic dose of old school electro with swollen bass and fuzzy harmonics. title track ‘segrada’ brandishes swirling melodies with layers of detail. followed by ‘belvedere’ which uses looped breaks and a sub-driven bassline to build animated funk. ‘battery’ closes things out with a nod to detroit. and a full on drum workout which plays with delicate melodic inflections over a cavernous low end.

somewhere between dub and space lies the work of unknown wonders. like the one created by normal stage. a1 starts like part of a typhoon taking everything in it’s path. the pounding sub will crunch the dancefloor vibeing towards the core of the nervous system. the tunnel is open: b1 will open a star gate through precise push and pull movements. there is light at the end. but the trip is long. it’s a time travel where senses are altered. b2 takes us back to the ground where it all started. heavy basslines and lush pads are chanting in celestial ambiance. the drum of earth is the heart of the dance. a ritual for all things normal.

black vinyl! fluxions ripple effect is the film score for a non-existing motion picture. this 9-track album is the result of experimentation and the combination of the producer’s two most cherished art forms: electronic music and score music. ironically the two worlds rarely seem to meet. despite the fact that score music has adopted a looser form in order to better adapt to film accompaniment. bringing it closer to electronic music which attempts to contradict form or shed it altogether. fluxion felt the need to bring these two musical forms into dialogue with each other. lending structure to electronic and deconstructing score music to create a malleable and expressive hybrid. the albums production took two years from its original conception for the subliminal story to unfold into the completed product. fluxion wanted to say as much as possible through the music. leaving the visuals as a blank canvas for the listener to create their own story. in the end. the goal is to give each member of the audience a unique audiovisual experience based on their own perception and interpretation.

as mosaic reaches release number 40. steve o sullivan dives into another studio collaboration with his new label mate and expert hand. mike schommer - bringing in the talents of rod modell on remix duties. etching two slices of dub heavy grooves that cover either side of the techno and house spectrum. their first effort emphasises the former on title track -submerged- (b1). it doesn t pull any punches - precision moulded bass takes centre stage around evolving synths and classic delay action. their 2nd -depth charge dub- (b2) leans more towards the latter as the duo focus on the combination of a rolling sub. laidback percussion and subtle stabs that cycle gently around. the cherry on top comes in the form of rod modell s -deepchord s negative-space exploration version- as he takes a 9 min trip to the hinterland of his sonic imagination. elegantly finding new layers and spatial effects. call it what you will. dubbed out house with a splash of techno or dubbed out techno with a splash of house - this is heavyweight material.

parisian producer brice groulier has built a reputation as one of the new guard of techno artists to watch closely with consistently high quality sub aquatic. rhythm shifting techno for labels like semantica. midgar. planet rhythm. and modularz. while looking for music that integrated with our grey area releases. we found ourselves blending more von grall tunes than any other artist. so a horo release was requested. what originally began as a 4 track ep bloomed into an 8 track debut album that sees von grall expand his style beyond the muscular but hazy rhythmic mist he has become known for. the title track infinitum opens the lp like a contemplative bubble. hyper density and inside are pensive. evocative jogs. while emerald city and disturbance ramp up the energy and will be the most favoured floor tunes from infinitum. antonym allegory combines the von grall rhythmic bounce with an emotive pad that will echo in your mind long after listening. motel closes the lp with a quirky. almost joyful flow. infinitum wanders confidently into new ground for von grall and cements him as a versatile and singular voice in techno.
