allfeelings is releasing a 12- in dedication to his love for early dub techno coming out of berlin. the idea behind the title ďuntitledĒ is to give the listeners more space to interpret the tracks themselves rather than being distracted with any track names. as allfeelings music label is about the amalgamation of sounds and rhythms to bring about a visceral experience, this can be observed in the african inspired percussion on side a and the subtle changes and movement it has throughout its length. side b focuses more on easy listening with sounds and dry textures meandering slowly demanding the listenerís attention at all times. the other great thing about this record is it works really well pitched down which can be used to great effect during warm ups and after hours. this release has the support from ario and o:utlier from astral industries.

anyone whoís followed maurice aymardís galaktika label over the years will be all too aware of the imprintís leaning toward eclectic sounds. itís an ethos that mirrored in the work of aymard himself and regardless of whether heís turning his hand to tech house sounds or more straight-up techno jams, his is a way of working thatís endeared him to many over the years. his latest is a case in point. the 75th chapter in the galaktika discography, the into the night ep serves up an array of sounds that are enticing as they are upbeat and intriguing. getting us underway is the sounds of the title track. an unfurling beast of a track thatís loaded with dramatic tension throughout, itís an eerie cut thatís characterised by its clever bells and some incessant percussion. a full on track thatís not to be handled lightly, itís repetitive nature and sporadic vocal charms is indicative of levon vincent at his best. Ďshinningí, a more progressive cut, follows after. another track thatís notable for the suspense that lingers throughout, it serves up a nice stylistic alternative to whatís arrived before. aymard then goes all out on the frankly astounding sounds of Ďrageí. a propulsive gem of the type that sees the producer greatly rewarded for trying something that bit different, itís a special sort of track that takes on various tones throughout but always stays captivating. seeing us out soon after is eduardo de la calleís remix of the latter. the cadenza man is well versed in all things deep and dextrous, and his interpretation serves up a fitting example of his talents. although it starts on a melodic tip, it too soon brings the listener on a thoroughly captivating but unexpected journey. much like the rest of this ep, de la calleís remix is full of surprises from the off.

after the release on french label basse resolution and after a couple of years since his last ep on bosconi, having released with the -under the line- track one of the highlights of our latest 10 years compilation and as bss together with his mates fabio della torre and mass prod, rufus is back on bosconi with a new four tracker record which goes on a new direction compared to the past music he did. -ritual chants- was mainly recorded in the abandoned industrial area of milan called bovisa and probably for this reason the release sounds all around a bit sci fi, cinematic and especially gothic. all begins with the raw techno jam of -fast rituals- where structured mellow and dreamy synth lines combine with the dusty, aggressive and driving rhythmical transportation of its drum section. fast rituals is one of those electronic pieces which tells you a story from the beginning till the end, so please pay attention to it. -sapere sparare- looks calmer but actually has the more mental and psychotic feeling of the whole record, driven by an intoxicating and fat bass line, rough jazzy beats and a lot of twisted out fm synths goodness whose times are punctuated twice by the warning female vocal theme of the track. -last shot #5- instead is a jacked out, hypnotic and darker broken house track dense of pumping low ends and subtle but glorious synth riffs properly made for the late hours and totally in the vein of a baby ford - minimal man production.-tenebre- closes up the ep with its horror movie atmosphere, drilling drones here and there, big bouncy bass lines, reverberated snares, drama strings and a dominant sinister melody which slightly reminds of some old dbx track.
