re-release: released in 1993, the technology ep appeared on the start of a re-establishment of electro music and a beginning for the direct beat label. that would be a constant reminder of where to see aux88 material come to light. -technology- carried the aux88 brand onto radio, mainstream club and dance parties...become a sought after 12- by a band that proclaimed its sound as electro/techno . the techno bass mix is the original track, (now for the first time available) rhythm mix is a different animal on its own... within the track you can hear the growth of what would become the sound of emerging aliases in years to come and the use of distinct voices/vocals. with both versions from the original studio recordings in 1993, listeners will be treated to a major bonus point in the birth of the aux quadrant of projects to come. designed for a well-deserved space on the global dance floor.
aux88 bass magnetic re-issue 1993-2018. back by popular demand, the same unique spirits that brought forth the sound of detroit streets and turned it into the futuristic soundscape known as techno-bass , the original members have collaborated to re-issue their catalog 25+ years later. starting with their 1st double pack lp, bass magnetic (considered to be a mesh of influences between miami bass and detroit techno), aux88 established themselves in an effort to stay true to their roots in the streets and the clubs creating their own genre into a global dance culture. after the release and production of their own documentary ( aux88-portrait of an electronic band ), the group celebrates its now classic recordings. harkening back to its first days on cassette tape to revive a future generation of vinyl aficionados. aux88 s bass magnetic = classic detroit electro.

taken from the aptly titled sacrilege lp of remixes from 1997. here we have a 1-sided 12inch featuring carl craigs bladerunner mix. so hows it sound? well its one of those that never drops, instead building on a rapid fire set of hand-claps, some nice little filtered synth fills, a little bit of vocal. basically those elements twisted, turned and arranged in the way only carl craig can (or did in 97)
hailing from madrid, oscar mulero is the nr 1 spanish export in techno. being one of the major driving forces of the underground techno sound of today, makes it only natural he d connect with token on some point
slap - one of the most obscure and forward thinking acts from the early 80s meets the spearhead of today’s electronic music, ricardo villalobos. the originals are disturbingly brilliant electronic excursions, while villalobos’ jazz-fueled rework is one of the deepest mixes he has ever done. vivid drums are built around a driving bassline, aiming the track right at the floor. not to mention the rough claps! imagine miles davis’ “bitches brew” joined by throbbing gristle, playing “minimal techno” live. earlier this year macro unearthed namlook’s long lost “subharmonic atoms” featuring outstanding pépé bradock remixes. this continuation of the “prototypes” series is none less of a dream team. slap’s experimentalism just seems to be the right inspiration for ricardo villalobos, who takes it to a level of weirdness only he can achieve while retaining such danceability. essential!

for fans of dj shadow, roni size, roots manuva, unkle, j dilla, rockers hi-fi, alex reece ...
you dont really have to introduce johannes heil, do you? for more than 15 years, he is an inherent part of the german techno scene and with classics from the likes of >paranoid dancer< (kanzleramt, 1998) or >calling< (1999), he belongs to the long-term memory of techno.
dj koze doesnt aim for technical perfection for its own sake, but rather to serve the purpose of giving birth to great music. on his debut >rue burnout ep< from his own pampa label, he plays with finesse and sophistication, and implicitly understands the importance of subtlety, leading from dreamy and restrained parts to a noisy frenzy at the end.
public lover (ninca leece & bruno pronsato) return with another single aimed at bringing you into their humid world of dance music. naked figures is a bassline-driven story drunk on percussion and beauty. a track built on abstraction and elegance. a track quiet literally naked from its humble beginning to its anti-climactic ending. it’s an unassuming journey of class. it’s ninca & bruno uttering scenes of nakedness and dim lights… but is it a love song? we think not. it’s not about a one night stand either. it’s simple. it’s funk. it’s house. it’s techno. more importantly, it’s about making you dance. on the b-side, one half of the duo, bruno pronsato, steps up for remix duties.
in the wake of the ubiquitously received teufelswerk album dj hell sets his sight on a forthcoming remix album. with this in mind we would like to introduce you the thomas schumacher remix of hells disaster single!
excellent classic longplay with hit tunes like da funk, revolution 909, rollin & scratchin, rock n roll, around the world, burnin, alive, indo silver club ... 16 tracks from typical french funk to harder electrofied chicago techno!

dont miss the next long awaited vinyl on night drive music. this time we gave the black gold to hypnos. hypnos (deepology, urbantorque, myhouse, box music) presents now his 2nd release on night drive music. he graduated from music school in guitar, and played keyboards in a rock band for a few years. he was member of the infamous >demoscene< in poland - an unofficial and underground group of like-minded people mixing music with street graphics. the original is a never ending dream between sweet deepness and techy elements. its hard to describe the tune. just listen please! remixes are coming from pawas, subsky and stefan mallmann.
peaktime goodness built for the dancefloor. >k5000< expect some manipulated beats with an amazing drive ending up with a climax of snares, this has all the right ingredients to make it another einmusik classic. we defy anyone to stand still when this one drops >ehrfurcht< has more epic proportions with delicate and subtle layers of melody washing around a threathening bassline... one hell of a mental track
propelling down under techno and house into the worlds clubs with classics such as phreakin, lsd and 6am in the mid-90s, djhmc (cam bianchetti) is rightly hailed as the * godfather of australian techno*.
with the arrival of the reflector label the world is his, and he has embraced it whole-heartedly as in the past the world embraced djhmc, once again its time to prove why he is one of the most talented techno and house producers and djs to ever grace the turntables….the godfather is back!
we keep the curle-p subdivision for rare licenses of forgotten pearls from the past, with a new remix on the flip. the last one we did was thomas brinkmanns isch including the soulphiction remix, one of the essential records of 2009, also according to pitchfork. this time we picked walt js reborn, originally on detroit label dow in 1997 and featured by mr. juan atkins on his legendary mastermix.
salvation is found by identifying thesis and antithesis of a logically conceived duality as a receptive polarity which is then synthesized and expressed on a higher level. thereby practicing what is preached is the all-embracing love in the presence of the creator. the purest original state pre-dating the judgmental so called >fall of man< in unity with life itself is the principle of holiness and the root of inner peace. glory to g-d!

following the s_w_z_k debut album, which came out on tresor records before the summer, david brown offers here further insights into the most recent developments of his new departure. receiving the help of long-time collaborator and friend richard davis, the duo continues its dive into the concrete and metallic landscapes found on their eponymous lp effort. the variant & empires ep however marks somewhat of a slight departure from the obscure experimental investigations previously undertaken. tc4 variant is a roaring number, aiming specially at the dancefloor and taking the duos energy to its highest point, while second city of the empire intimately unveils the deeper side of their enterprise.

the latest gigolo release is one for the summer! aptly titled hot it comes courtesy of ivano coppola and christian prommer, the former being one of italia s most respected dj s and the latter being, amongst other things, one of the main collaborators for hells critically acclaimed album teufelswerk. taking a sample from willie ninjas classic record hot and building a track around the chords and the vocal leads us to our starting point ivano coppola plastic mix!
ivano coppola has been the resident dj at milan s plastic club since 1992, so it is fair to say that he knows what works on a dance floor, or, to use a popular phrase, what is hot and what is not. it is with this historical knowledge that we find the genesis of our track. i found it necessary to go back in the past, to start producing once again in a 90 style - using samples. the next step was to come back into the future and reach out to christian prommer, highly respected by many including ivan i consider (christian prommer) one of the best producers of the moment! he loved the idea, the remix was huge, and so we decided to co-produce the record. simple!!!
but, for christian this was more then a remix, hence the co-production credit! i liked the idea of translating an early 90 s house-music-sample in to a sample-style-percussive-techno-tune. lots of live played drums and percussion in this one, of course. i only later learned that the sample we used is from one of my house music heroes, maws louie vega. naturally the record found its way into the hands of gigolo in the best way possible, and in the tradition of such a great record label – i played it at the gigolo night in munich and hell came to me dancing and took the tune into his heart.

julian perez delivers his debut album solemnity on the artist’s own imprint, fathers & sons productions. this 2×12” vinyl only release is a deep sonic journey highlighting perez’s attention to detail and the evolution of style gained from many years of refining. solemnity branches out in many directions but is unmistakably perez, expressing himself musically more than ever before. presenting relaxing soundscapes that float through various atmospheres plus perfectly-mixed 909 beats, listeners can expect a journey of songs that ranges from innocent and deep to club-friendly and driving. the album’s title comes from the state of being serious and dignified, which is seen in this complete package from the artwork to the mix and expert selection of sounds. solemnity by julian perez is a window to the artist’s dedication to his craft and ability to create honest sound. it’s an album that should be listened to from start to finish. we solemnly swear.
the third release by the finnish producer leftover on the label. as always the tracks are full of deepness with a well balanced mix of echos, reverbs. this is again a fantastic release from him, which will become a future classic!
a rare release from one of minimal house and techno s most respected icons, thomas brinkmann. isch is a much sought after track taken from a record that has been out of print since many years. not many people know that this track was originally made for the mutek festival in 2002. out of respect we let mr. brinkmann choose his prefered remixer and we were more than happy when soulphiction aka jackmate (perlon, sonar kollektiv, philpot) took on the challenge. his remisch is nothing short of a future classic, maybe even his best rework to date. an essential release for your collection!!

alan abrahams, the man behind portable, emerged out of the ruins of a post apartheid south africa. growing up in an impoverished cape town township, tagged >beverly hills< by the locals, abrahams was always immersed in his sisters ritual of getting ready for a night out to a soundtrack of 80s soul, hi life and hip hop. inspired by the first batch of chicago house records, the foundations were laid for his future in music. experimenting with ways of combining traditional african rhythms with the 4/4 sound of house,abrahams completed various projects in south africa. most of which gave a commentary to the political turmoil of the country at the time. abrahams inevitably became frustrated by the geographic isolation of the country and relocated to london in 1997. in the uk abrahams went on to complete various releases for internationally recognised labels such as context and background records before starting up his own label, süd electronic in 2002
