inspired in the past but rearranged in the future.this reference on drivecom is a tribute for all those sequential electronic music and synth pioneers mainly coming from the 70s. most of the tracks were recorded on the fly playing synths and keyboards in live mode specially for this production... and here we present aeon.
2010 has seen some juicy, off-the-wall techno/electronic vinyl goodies from the head space of little nobody, including the acclaimed >metropolis how?< and >robota< records - with remixes by the likes of james ruskin, justin berkovi, inigo kennedy, dj hi-shock, si begg, patrick pulsinger and steve stoll. but its the originator of the tracks who continues to push the perimeters, recently leading hi-shock, the prolific innovator behind the essential elektrax empire, to suggest that honestly, i think you are at least a couple of years ahead in your musical vision compared to other producers. little nobodys alter ego andrez bergen has also had his head buried this year in the creation of a hardboiled/noir/sci-fi novel called >tobacco-stained mountain goat<, and it was in the midst of this project - with these heady influences - that the get away from it all 12-inch project came to light. thus we got on board bas mooy (planet rhythm/audio assault) and dave tarrida (tresor/musick) to do the two scintillating re-takes here, which are downright brilliant. meanwhile little nobodys troll, on the flip-side, lives up to its claim: its hardboiled and devastatingly dirty electronica. all up, think streetwise, smack-your-glitch-up techno - dark, uber-bassy, dirty and pulsating - just the way we like it, with sardonic samples and a freestyle, postmodern attitude thats invigorating. matched up with the cool artwork by marcin markowski, this is an essential slab of wax for 4:00 am head-caving techno!
first on decks .de !!! sa007 sees perc and modern heads create the first collaborations between these two core stroboscopic artefacts artists. the result is a punishing hybrid of percs dubstep tendencies and modern heads cutting techno. a-side >mendax< is cavernous. built upon solid dub foundations, it spills over into grinding, metallic territory. if the titles to be believed it takes inspiration from the shady world of lies and deceit. the atmosphere seems to agree, theres certainly something mendacious at work here. b1 takes the eps atmosphere and adds abrasion. in >percdax< cold, hard percussion is layered over a bed of warm dub. closer >moddax< errs on the eerie. it skulks, is full of sticky bleeps and the result is unnervingly dubbed out. all three track titles share the same suffix and if this indicates that they also share one quality its that theyre best heard in the glinting shadows of a club just before day break. sa007 was craftily mastered by artefacts mastering, berlin.
first on decks.de !!! scalameriyas >samus aran<, a thriving and massively pushing techno-cutlet, makes up eminors first quarter. its getting a solid rework by daegon from denver, who is obviously not afraid of daring to enter the twilightish area of heavy distortion

und der kampfhund, der hat zähne … und mit denen schnappt er zu! auf >dog eat dog<, der brandneuen single der mexikanischen hard-electro-legende hocico zeigen sich shouter erk aicrag und sound-wizard racso agroyam so bissig wie nie zuvor. eine unerhört eingängige hookline trifft auf die wohl aggressivsten vokal-eskapaden und die härtesten beats, die man je von dem duo gehört hat: ein brutales aggro-fest mit hit-appeal. ein brachialer vorbote auf das neue album >tiempos de furia<! tour im herbst.

excellent bassheavy dubstep remix by untold !!! schon die ersten takte machen klar, es wird abgehen. was sich zunächst als intro eines derbe-straighten oldschool-hammers ankündigt, wandelt sich ohne jede vorwarnung zum breakbeat-kracher mit angezerrter monster-kick. mit dem >surgeon remix< wird die sache dann auch tatsächlich gerade, aber von entspannung hat hier niemand was gesagt. der straight-bouncige beat hüpft wie angestochen durch die gegend, angereichert mit seltsamen metall-percussion. die klaustrophobischen flächen und düsteren melodiefragmente der album-version ziehen sich zusehends enger - wird der track dichter, oder sind gerade die wände ein stück näher gerückt...

was meint der schwede dahlbaeck mit >wet summer< ? verregnet oder verschwitzt? wenn man den track hoert, wuerde man sagen letzteres. dazu gesellt sich tom pooks mit einem extatischen neoacid-feuerwerk. wer doppelt schwitzt, bleibt laenger nass !!
