nick anthony simoncino is synonymous with the revival of italian house music over the past five years or so. and so it feels right for him to be delivering this album to vibraphone. of course. simoncino has more than enough skills (and hardware) to make something truly special. and that s apparent from the opening strains of -mystic adventures- onwards. there s a sense of urgency and mystery woven into tracks like -righteous rule-. where haunting leads wobble over sizzling drum machines. and the overall mood is redolent of 80s soundtracks mixed with the uneasy side of chicago house music. maintaining a punchy finish throughout and constantly reaching for the spooky side of machine soul. simoncino has more than delivered for the legendary italian label.

this is the third ep by dutch post-techno project monocorpse... his style is evident by now: minimal and dark... a sort of doom techno for the freaked-out dance floor... but this new ep also feels like a soundtrack... rather moody and haunting music which would fit perfect in thrillers and psychological dramas... despite all of this there are some real dance floor tracks on this ep... stuff monocorpse never delivered before in this way...

a blast from the past... one of the most iconic tracks from the noir music back-catalogue makes a remixed revival. 3 impressive remixes to spice up your dj sets. victor ruiz makes bipolar star a fantastic big room techno stomper with his signature sound and just the right amount of melody from the original to make it recognizable. re:axis almost makes the track unrecognicable with a more minimal techno approach. something i am sure will please the forefront of the underground techno scene. animal picnic & aaryon almost pays tribute to the original with their very cool update keeping a lot of the original feel but cleverly tweaked the elements to sound super fresh again. i believe there’s a little something for everyone in this remix package which was the purpose behind doing it instead of a bunch of remixes sounding the same. i hope you like the new remixes and put “bipolar star” right back into rotation.
violet and bleid met last year in lisbon. at the radio quântica studios. in the very same day. they impromptu started working together on a track: a cover of underground sound of lisbon’s so get up to celebrate international womens day. together. alongside a crew of young lisbon djs and activists. they also run the queer techno party mina. one of the most vital things going on in the city’s nightlife - the picture in the artwork was taken in the backstage of one of those infamous. dark-room-equipped parties.
bleid remixed naive001’s togetherness by violet. and that dope rework made it to rroxymore’s bag (as heard at berghain) and was played on bbc radio 6. rinse fm and +++. the pair became friends. started bouncing ideas about production techniques. rap skills and the importance (or lack thereof) of the classics in dance music. making more music together happened naturally.
naive002 feels like a continuation of naive’s first release in some ways: the jungle-inspired chopped breaks. sonic synth work and oneiric pads are still there but gain a heavier. perhaps more somber tone at times. exploding into depth or ecstasy at others.
