exit safe mode. a project by the visionary margus lö..vve. establishing himself in estonian technoid music. has converged its sonic baggage into the newly released debut album immerse. the spheres created and recorded during 2008-2017 are travelling in ambient landscapes. while deserving to be called genuine contemporary music for its clarity of thought and musical focus. these eight themes are reminiscent of the dubstep-ish flows of lö..vves earlier projects l-ow and 1derl& that are giving way to more idiosyncratic lines. the depth of sound manipulations allows one to discover tones of life in the synthetic analog worlds and provides a body-forsaking sideview to the interpretations of stringed instruments. the created sonorous state of immerse serves as an introduction to more rhythmic future affairs of exit safe mode

“remains”. magda ter’s sophomore album. has been created over the past two years changing its shape several times. it is a compromise between static. experimental background music and soothing techno glimpses with some samples of acoustic instruments. as a result. the album has contemplative colours. although hidden beneath the surface of seemingly uninvolved sounds.

• 2xgatefold lp from les graciés
• silkscreened artwork by al white & house of traps
les graciés is a collaboration in the truest sense between paris-based sound artist gaël segalen and deepblak co-founder afrikan sciences. segalen’s experiments in electroacoustic sound met the wider world this year via a debut lp for erratum. an arresting work that showcases her ability to merge hypnotic murk ala angus maclise with the hard concréte of parmegiani & reibel. segalen’s ihearu imprint / organisation is a platform for her various doings. including psychogeographical audio works and multi-media collaborations. as well as servicing as a reference point for other contemporary female artists working across various mediums. eric douglas porter aka african sciences has been deconstructing and re-building forms of contemporary black music since the mid-2000’s. through releases on deepblak (the label he co-runs with aybee) and pan. his musical universe is one of warping cadences and celestial melody. referencing the bold work of percussionists like milford graves & art jenkins. the dissonant chords of motor city techno and stripped back essence of early chicago house matched with broken hard bop sentiments: all tied together with an aesthetic that sits somewhere between sun ra’s omniverse. jean giraud mœbius and dogon cosmology. together as le graciés. segalen and porter make a wholly unclassifiable strain of music that. while containing recognisable elements of each individual s work. also creates a third entity in the process. which can be heard to stunning effect on their forthcoming debut lp ‘low doses’ for firecracker recordings.

new years deal - what more can be said about 2016 for red rack em apart from massive? in march. he released the instant classic wonky bassline disco banger which has been one of the biggest selling house tracks of the year. picking up praise and plays across the board from moodymann. the black madonna and mcde right through to disclosure and mark ronson.
tomato pope is a slamming party banger. somewhere between house. techno. african music and broken beat. the drums are driving. the bassline is huge and the vocal samples get mangled throughout the track. it s another guaranteed floor wrecker from red rack em and gives a tantalising taste of the lp weight to follow.
!! ltd 50% off edition !!! clash lion is a mix of three personalities shall ocin. terr and daniel watts. three artists with different musical backgrounds merging forces to create a truly eclectic and open minded label. after the standout success of their debut release from maetrik in september. the labels second helping comes from label co-owner. shall ocin. known for his heavy use of modular synths. analog rhythmboxes and custom-made effects his bounty hunter ep is definitely unique. cicada layers atmospheric modulations. slow pulsating synth work on top of a booming bass drum. dark synth tones resonate to create real exploration of sound. raw. and somewhat ethereal in its composition ‘bounty hunter’ layers frequency patterns in a fresh formation. leading into a heady path of sound texture before its thunderous release with a booming synth riff. the labels mission to achieve eclectic. no boundaries electronic music has been displayed throughout this release from shall. with the final track yummy jam creating an experimental electronica vibe. showing his passion for innovation.
the first release on autodidact is a house flavoured ep by newcomer doyle johnson. on the a-side a small nod to chicago. while the b-side is filled with disco and hiphop influences. ready to keep dancefloors moving. autodidact is the second label roger gerressen is setting up through yydistribution. aiming to release projects from various friends. collabs and people he meets along the way.
if you are wondering what the artist wanted to tell you by choosing this title. we will give you a small hint: it’s a cynical statement on something that for sure every party promoter has experienced at some point. the rest. we will leave up to your imagination… in real life. there’s no mercy – neither is when it comes to the sound of this new snork release by syntax error. the four new tracks with meaningful names are not only a social criticism and another artistic processing of the current development of the techno scene. but also a classic syntax error: rough. tricky and good to groove. each track stands on its own. telling another story. “collateral cosmopolitan” is a straight forward piece with a highly memorable beat talking about the uniformity that is creeping in the waiting lines of more and more techno clubs. “i wear my grandpa’s glasses” presents a totally dodgy sound. which might be a little oldschool and even a little irritating – just like some fashion items you encounter on today’s big city streets. “no fog is no solution” is a tight song that definitely needs some good fog and a harsh strobe. and finally. the last track sounds like a futuristic fairy tale from outer space looking on the world as if it is a “society bathysphere”.
the idea of >shocksbits< clearly explains itself though the insane breaking sequences in both parts. ray also found a new way of producing his trax what makes it quiet an update in sound. tested in rays live-set on his recent trip to japan in tokyo and kyoto. finished up at the kanzleramt studio. berlin. - feel spass!.

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.
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.

- 50% deal - welcome to the all new children of the box. a label heavily inspired by the edgier side of chicago’s legendary club. the “music box”. we re getting things rolling with a whirlwind of raw analog recordings by gavin guthrie. aka tx connect (l.i.e.s.. creme organization. t.r.u.).
first up is “dripping”. which carries a vintage (yet modern) gherkin jerks sound. the song continuously builds throughout the track. ending in a frenzy of synthesizer’s & 707 drum patterns.
the title track “into the box” takes you on a hypnotic journey through the mind of hellraiser s very own pinhead. a melodic interlude gives the listener a slight break. but only to return with a vengeance.
“not forever” brings a “back to the future” vibe. equally stacked with both vintage & modern elements. the song comes complete with an overpowering low synth line & 707 drums.
closing things out is “destinies”. a track inspired by the deeper side of the windy city. a more than perfect ending to a stellar release.
maybe its just you: jumping around from joyful reveries to passages of melancholia. from uncanny revelations to the grey routines. or maybe its just the music: a dusty cosmic theme with a bit of the 80s electronic flavour. warping your state of mind on the slick drum rolling. electro tingles and obsessive sci fi bleeps. we call it moodswing: sublees electronic visions for contemporan.
wrapping up the summer with a bit of a 90s throwback number by st. david. ​.. * fools jam* . the ep opens with the titual track. a crunchy. crisp deep house burner. and moves on. with night lovers. into speedier. smoother floor-filling fodder that’s all wiggling. weaving pads and synth leads. the b is a little gentler and more contemplative. but no less melodious dream it (emphasi mix) is a playful yet gauzy piano-led tune that serenades the listener. and la luna (spiritual dub) is a tranquil ditty that serenely glides off into the distance. a calming. mellow conclusion to a particularly emotive 12inch.

ltd new years deal - 50 % deal - in 1999. serotonin records released their final output. which happened to be the very first official release by fischerspooner. before they moved on to great international acclaim. serotonin was their introduction into the dance music world. one might think that the label would have grown only larger and more successful from this particular high point in its history - but life is uncertain and circumstances unforeseeable. label founders john selway and jason szostek became drawn away in different directions and the label ceased. recently however. they began to discuss bringing back the imprint. re-releasing or remixing old material. digging up their own unreleased productions and producing new material bridging the gap between their early styles and what they create individually now. they also began to look around for new artists that complimented the amorphous serotonin sound
>lost in love< is the first single to be taken from l-vis 1990s forthcoming debut album. neon dreams. continuing a collaborative partnership which began on last years >forever you< single. breakthrough bristol-based vocalist javeon mccarthy once again takes centre stage here. through its melodious analogue synths. infectious vocal hooks and sub-4 minute running length. >lost in love< in many ways serves as the ideal entrée to neon dreams. this is the sound of l-vis 1990 revisiting the routes of his dance music love affair. picking up his own theme from the original—the classic french bassline—l-vis 1990s neon dreams club mix pushes the low-end triumphantly to the fore. club is certainly the operative word here. feel the remixs bangalter-esque bassline drop and your minds eye fixes instinctively upon an undulating dancefloor. the night slugs allstars — l-vis 1990. bok bok. jam city — also take the floor on their version. albeit via the neon-tinged scenic route. much like the label itself. their remix is replete with colour. difficult to define and relentlessly innovative.

ltd 50% deal ...significant success for artists is based on two things: talent and timing. dave.i.d has talent by the spadeful but his timing may also be spot on. when dave.i.d released his debut single in march 09 he was probably too ahead of the game but now as we enter the last third of 2010 it feels right on the money. daves initial release went down very well though. paul lester in the guardians important new band of the day feature totally lost it. calling dave.i.d >totally brilliant< and dubbing him >aphex timbaland<. his single was voted single of the year in dazed & confused and made the end of year round-up in drowned in sound. now with the amazing zola jesus setting up so well around the world and the dark electronica coming more to the fore outside its nerd roots. dave.i.d sounds perfectly in tune with the unhappy. troubled sound of now.
