van abbe is back with no comment presenting 2 originals, a monologue from guy tavares (bunker records) + an evigt mörker remix. what did you feel the first time you were stargazing? standing alone in a dark backyard with your neck bent and the light from a thousand distant suns glittering in your bright eyes. did the overwhelming sensation of your own triviality descend upon your young soul like a dementor from azkaban? or did an unprecedented yearning breach every fibre of your being, compelling you to break free from the shackles binding you to the very ground? if you are in the latter category, this music is constructed especially for you. its a spaceship built from wooden barrels and rusty metal crates, pinned together with a multitude of crooked nails. but it works. it really does. you just have to make your mind broad enough to fit your clumsy terrestrial body in the spacecraft. the booming engines and the melodic bleeps from the control panel will do the rest. soon enough you’ll find yourself surrounded by the very stars you used to gaze upon as a child.
van abbes fresh no comment release presenting 2 originals, a killer remix by the exaltics and a debut track by pantone 32. it wasnt until she opened the old pocket watch – its timeworn silver surface glimmering slightly in the darkness – that she understood that something was terribly wrong. it was audibly pounding in her hand like some kind of bizarre metal heart. and it was decidedly running backwards. she could not move and she could not take her eyes off the spinning indicators. >stop<, she whispered. then again, louder this time: >stop!<. the watch stopped and fell silent. she exhaled and moved uneasily on the spot. the floorboards creaked. wait. the floorboards? there werent any floorboards in her room. it was all concrete and glass and…. her room wasnt there anymore. she was standing in an old workshop brimming with ancient-looking machinery covered in sawdust. no-one was operating the equipment but their ghostly echoes were still floating through the air, buzzing, hammering, humming – almost melodic to her ears. the pocket watch came to life in her hand, acting as a steady metronome to the spectral orchestra. she wasnt home anymore. but it certainly was.
reclaim your city returns to the shelves with its eight compilation featuring tracks by four of the genres finest. master and legend, steve bicknell, opens the record with the track that truly stands out on the compilation: a psychedelic piece titled >confusion of chase,< which is convoluted, dark, and extremely captivating. inigo kennedy follows with the thoughtfully composed >gradual return,< in which an offbeat rhythm perfectly coexist with an uplifting yet melancholic synth. things get even more exciting with pfirters >oppression,< which is both driving and hypnotizing, and makes a perfect peak time dancefloor bomb. the argentinian mainstay, jonas kopp, increases the tempo on >bigatron,< where a weirdly sarcastic groove pairs with a rain of metallic hi-hats as the piece progresses.
ferdinando apicella a.k.a. singular anomalies was born in naples. he has his first approach with the music when at the age of 10 his father gave him his first piano keyboard. in 1994 he listened to for the first time to a techno tape from derrick may, he had directly a big passion for techno detroit. so he started playing with his first vinyls, knowing labels as metroplex, underground resistance, transmat, axis, m-plant, and following djproducers like jeff mills, robert hood, kenny larkin, mike banks. for a period of time, he abandoned the techno scene to learn some jazz music, but after some years, obsessed by the techno music, he started studying seriously electronic music production, obtaining the degree of sound engineer and sound designer.
pinkman delivers another sturdy record for the connoisseurs of discomforting electronics. the second 5 years of tears release unifies 6 artists, each with their own interpretation of the labels ill-famed sound, embodied in vibrating basslines, metallic beats, and corrosive acid. gear yourself up for yet more nerve-racking music and get accustomed to the obscurity of this series of releases, because the madness is all but finished.
pleased to announce that nicola kazimir will complete the second opus of the series. the swiss signs with sabateans an ep of four tracks from techno to ebm and industrial. and as a bonus, a collaboration with walid el barbir.
