following the hypnotic ‘what’s in your head’ ep in 2016. archie hamilton returns to moscow records with his first solo ep on the imprint since the release last year. since finishing 2016 with a place in ra s top 100 djs poll. he’s been touring the world. had a summer residency at amnesia and released another massive ep on fuse. an integral part of the stellar ascent of the brand. and founder at tastemaker label initiatives moscow records. moss co. and arkityp. he is an artist very much in control of his rise. the record opens with confusion. an out and out anthem which has been tearing up dance floors across the globe all summer. a trademark bassline drives the track forward as stabs build. tight percussion cuts through and a repeating vocal enters. then when the track drops it shifts the mood completely. causing any dance floor to bump uncontrollably. dos equis is something different altogether. minimalistic percussion and a tight sub lay the foundations for a funky bass guitar line. warming pads meet rhodes keys and out of nowhere a beautifully subtle vocal line appears. as the track breaks down. a mind bending synth line takes the listener out of their state of reflection. the title track on the flip is a classic piece of groovy hamilton weaponry. a positive mood that bounces along to a whispering voice in the background. the track develops as lush chords permeate the groove. soaking the dance floor in the last of the summer sun to create a euphoric crescendo.
the ninth installment on tabla records comes from none other than dj/producer. multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer. alexkid. the former parisian turned berliner is without a doubt one of the most respected producers in the game. his stripped back. elegant and dubby sound-constructions have previously found their way on to labels such as desolat. fuse. cadenza and underground quality. now alexkid has supplied tabla records with two of these very unique tunes. his reset-ep shows the kids preferences for the dubbier and deeper sides of electronic music. both originals - fu-man-chu and reset - are delightfully bass driven. london based archie hamilton - owner of moscow records and key member of fuse london - rounds up this three-track-ep with an uplifting and stupendous remix. that can be described as a typical hamilton-groove.

for those unfamiliar with the atipic releases. it may seem that buenos aires’ jorge savoretti has chosen to swim upstream on the latest atipic installment. as for a trained ear. the apparently bipolar approach. elegantly touching quite a few electronic influences from different decades. has a cohesive unity in all the 3 tracks presented. hidden under the sharp cut filters from the happy side a tune or building the groove to be unleashed in full swing on side b. it is up to the dancefloor characters to find these elements. rather unconventional. yet totally subjective. atipic004 is a proof of concept on how different angles can generate twisted and unexpected perspectives on modern electronic music.

NOME / HAUSSE INCL RMXS BY ARP AUBERT & TARON-TREKKA
12" Vinyl D26.11.17
nice price deal !!! following our quest for inventive approaches within the sometimes tired and highly commodified house / tech house / techno / minimal or whatever you call it scene. we ve gone this time for landesvatter. regardless of having already signed a few full lenght lps on the highly esteemed normoton as well as on under_line and others. joachim landesvatter prefers to keep a low-key atittude. he offers us two great tracks. each one followed by a very special remix. the original of nome is a highly bouncy digitech house track for the dancefloor. with an infectious sinewave to keep you hooked from beggining to end. the remix of nome. in charge of arp aubert (marco niemerski aka tensnake & stephan lorenz) who run the great mirau musik. comes on the form of a hysterical dub house track that literally puts >the roof in the air<. we recommended for full effect to keep the volume on the red. as usual. the second half of the release follows at a quieter pace. hausse is a track on a out to lunch tradition. greatly influenced by detroit but at the same time distancing itself from the current plethora of nostalgics. in-house duo taron-trekka closes the package with a deep remix. rich on freaky jazz touches. we lack words to describe it.
nice price deal !!! born near the french border and growing up in the 90’s. dirk lamprecht aka dml developed a strange but even more so strong interest in hardcore-techno. but this style quickly became too limited for him and he adopted the sound of detroit. carl craig. kenny larkin and robert hood became the most influencial artists for him. over the years he became affiliated with an even greater spectrum of musical influences. ranging from all sorts of electronic music to jazz and even world music. in addition he graduated as an audio engineer and started to perform as a live act in 2002. more knowledge consequently leads to a much more diverse way of producing own tracks. in 2007 dirk lamprecht made his debut under his alias >dml< on the legendary label harthouse. his productions range from tribalistic via hypnotic. with a hint of detroit under his real name and from a touch of minimal. through melodramatic to straight techno under his alias dml

diogo s meticulous arrangements and idiosyncratic approach to electronic music have made him shine over the last years as one of the youngest and most promising talents rising from portugal. tanto amor is a 2-tracker ep of expansive excursions rich in detail. expansive low-ends. and rhythmic structure. and not only is this his solo debut on pluie/noir. it s also a warm and welcome comeback for the imprint after a long hiatus period. tanto amor (a) is a haunting composition of marching drums and crisp hi-hats. but its ever-mutating melodic arrangement. along with alba s hypnosis-inducing vocal tricks. creates a wide dynamic spectrum of sound capable of filling any type of sonic space. the flip-side wasame (b) adopts a freestyle. delirium-inducing approach where wacky minimalism and repetition do all the mind-tricks. elements communicate and move in a very liquid. organic way yet never losing the drive. giving the overall palette a slightly jazzy. improvisational tone. the ep s artwork also sees a debut of another portuguese talent. pics of you. using solely analog photography as his tool of expression. fitting to this installment of an ever-strengthening series of releases pluie/noir collectors were missing. limited pressings.

ricardo villalobos remixes deardrum from alejandro mosso s album isolation diaries recently released on third ear. villalobos worked up a 40 minute jam from which this is a 9 minute section which moves from a gentle pattering of sounds into a full-on villalobos groove. taught and slinky at the same time. i.e. irresistibly funky. the jam then subsides into chattering noises before the groove begins again. burnt friedman s remix of isolation diaries is a slow burning super funky jam with classic burnt friedman dub elements laced through the track together with the melody twisted and phased. the closing track from the album. mounivers. completes this fine release.

one vinyl. two tracks. three artists. this is how the latest va from zimbru could be summed up.
on side a we have a driving mysterious groove amped up by the sexy bassline and the deep moody atmosphere. sahauʼ...s track is immersed in an electro eclectism that is meant to be subtle and dynamic at the same time. this was recorded live and itʼ...s pressed as it was.
side b is the dark side for sure. this time itʼ...s only kozo and dan andrei (ak41) and their rendering is a hypnotic 12 minute long piece layered with a multitude of sounds ranging from the crickets and jungle birds to the more electronic bubbly and metallic tones. itʼ...s named after paul who had already left the building when this was recorded.
dive released a vast amount of productions and remixes on high class labels such as cocoon recordings. tsuba. freebase. deep labs (balance us). raum musik or stir15. the cocoon artist still runs his own label deep vibes with great success. deep vibes brought up some outstanding music by sascha dive and his „house-mates like brothers vibe or robert dietz. welcome sascha dive with his trippy dark tech house track child of sorrow at the aras family. aras label head andré galluzzi has been a vinyl dj for 25 years. with residencies at tresor. ostgut and berghain and releases on labels like ostgut. cocoon. cadenza. plus8 .ovum. music man .ongaku. taksi and bar 25. andré can look back at quite a history. 2017 has been another busy season for the artist who additionally presenting his berlin based eventy series we play vinyl regulary. bambo is a mysterious club tool with a breeze of darkness. this signature tune stands for open minded sound as galluzzi always does.
hamid promises a fresh spin from arria s second solid release. flashlight remembrance. each of the three tracks containing delightful surprises that buck listener expectations. nothing spells out his use of contrast & spontaneity like flshr 1. both in the way the track is built and the unfamiliar elements interaction. flshr 2 features a strong game. distinguishing itself through its textural design: the track is complemented by warped brimms located in different plans - among the record s most visceral pleasures. on the flipside. flshr 3 can be described as a heady exploration with a hypnotic encounter. repetitive for all the right reasons. the ep is built out of 3 tracks that come with a powerful attitude and are about to spin the dancefloor.
to give end to his alter ego mariano marcial aka -deep mariano- gives us its latest album. a story filled with syncopated rhythms. elegant passages between techno and microhouse abstract sounds. this work completes in a collaboration with exequiel. artist of san pablo. and a rmx with a solid groove with futurist low funk bass of federico molinari.

after an outstanding ibiza season with several appearances on the island. including his hyte residency at amnesia. tini & the gang and sankeys to name a few. yaya is ready to unleash his next track on tamango. the third release on his own tamango records is another solo ep for the head-honcho who now delivers closer and we re super glad to see berlin based mike shannon on the remix duties. the title track closer is a captivating lush masterpiece and features the beautiful vocals of russian artist eka moon. it immediately kicks in with deep kicks and subterranean bass and the vocal totally turns the track into a sexy and intimate mood with a superb amalgamation of drums. pads and delayed synths. the intense and sumptuous groove is top notch quality with yaya s meticulous attention for subtleties and details. creating a true heady dancefloor brew. on the flip. b1 is about close encounters with mike shannon on the remix who completely takes the track into another direction with sinister and electrical atmospheres. his version of closer starts a two minutes crescendo of tension and anxiety with a misted use of the vocals until a lethal kick and bass combination together with a lean groove makes of this remix an amazing hypnotic club killer. ending the affairs on the ep is the dub mix of closer which emphasizes all the single elements of the original track without the vocal part.
rabotnic is back to paragram with new interesting project raborb. victor lihonosov and alexander kuredenko are raborb. moscow based duo founded in 2015. rabotnic is one of those standout names amongst the current wave of young russian producers and orbet supertalented producer who have a lot of secret weapons. greek producer markos spanoudakis aka kreon has made really nice remix.
