THE NEW YORK PUSH
hier kommt ein wahres kriegsschiff für deine lautsprecher! aber besten extra laut genießen.
pushing at the edges which define techno, afro and deep house these three tracks bring fresh heat to the dancefloor, creating an ethereal mood whilst delivering maximum power and energy. if paired down, minimal electronic percussive sounds are your thing, lead track ligai will tick all the boxes. stina follows with driving, syncopated beats and a killer pan-pipe riff to hook you in. closing the record sand brings a deeper, atmospheric track loaded with floating m1 textures, warm bass and spirited percussion fills. all in all a highly effective and inventive slice of wax with a voguish twist to groove to.

BUMI UTHIRI EP
uwalmassa is a sonic exploration project initiated by divisi62 – a sound and visual arts label based in jakarta, indonesia that examines the indonesian identity issue within a global context. the thought process behind their debut album bumi uthiri is to provide an alternative study on javanese gamelan composition and to experiment with its known and unknown structures. it is a deconstructed interpretation of a musical tradition that aims to stretch boundaries, but nevertheless, adhere to its core essence.
ploy returns for his third solo timedance record, the 14th release on the label. the london producer is in absolute banger mode for this one, finding his stride with these frenetic gunfinga-ready assaults, both as fun and playful as they are playful and rude. artwork by danielle doobay.
LET LOVE KILL (TAPE / CASSETTE)
cassette / tape UK
botanic records presents let love kill: a new ep by experimental malaysian drummer reza othman, otherwise known as rao. fully-formed but deliberately unpolished, the release presents itself as a meditation of found sounds, ambient samples and ultimately enthralling diy sonic landscapes.
this production is a collaborative effort of jakarta-based divisi62 and berlin-based disk (formerly known as diskant). it features 4 tracks by the constituents of divisi62 that are inspired by indonesia’s urban slums, dangdut and pencak silat.

YOU GOT IT EP
sagmen third release featured greg pidcock and andre salmon who combine to deliver ‘you got it’ ep with four dark house cuts plus two digital only mixes. uk producer greg pidcock’s nomadic tendencies have fostered a strong connection with his music which has seen releases on esteemed labels like hot creations, get physical, culprit, saved, not to mention founding his montreal-based imprint flora. meanwhile, andre salmon’s extensive knowledge of music production has earnt him releases on the likes of repopulate mars, leftroom, hottrax, suara, before founding sagmen alongside aert prog. ‘you got it’ delivers a heavyweight kick and sharp percussive rhythms that lay the foundation for haunting arpeggios and an intoxicating vocal hook before ‘loco’ provides grooved drum patterns, a powerful bass melody and an array of intriguing synthesiser transitions, with epic vocals effects . “tfss’ offers up warped vocal samples and mesmerising motifs on top of a pulsating low-end whilst “esto es montanita’ hits hard with crunching drum sounds, enticing filter sweeps and hypnotic samples. two digital only ‘black mixes’ conclude the package, with the first reinterpretation of ‘loco’ setting an ominous tone until the alternative version of ‘tfss’ follows with a rumbling bass, crisp percussion and dubbed out vocal licks.
having previously caused a sensation with his releases on labels such as enchufada and naafi, siete catorce delivers four supreme cuts for his hypermedium debut, packed with his futuristic rhythmic craft and his highly hybridised sonic language. agnosia finds the mexicali-based producer joining the dots between cumbia’s seductive syncopations, the entrancing club-driven beats of tribal guarachero and ruidosó,,,,n’s spooky experimentation. merging mexican traditional rhythms and contemporary dance motifs, the ep’s playfulness is further highlighted by imposing basslines, airy synths and eclectic glitches - its occasional sparse atmosphere quickly escalating to reveal some intricate, compulsive drum work. exquisitely intense, agnosia is undoubtedly siete catorce’s tour de force, revealing in every detail the finest textures of an ever-expanding affective continuum.
ltd 2018 repress !!! melbourne party enthusiasts animals dancing launch their self titled label with the sophomore release from krautback duo coober pedy university band (tornado wallace & william paxton aka tom moore of otologic). kookaburra, once described as *a bit too mental for me*, continues in the vein of their moon plain release, but this time takes it a step further. perhaps too far.
yeelen is a brand new project forged in the heart of a forgotten past. joe drive, of lux rec fame, and maurizio martinucci aka tez aka pragma have joined forces to sculpt, in their own words, -sonic constructions that transcend the canons of electronic music.- a bold statement, but then again this is a pretty bold ep. -techno tribalism and ritualistic soundscapes- are the bedrock from which this partnership cultivate their sound. figures and forms of a bygone time are conjured through intoxicating drum patterns, lost lands of dense jungle and windswept hills summoned through loops and samples to ensnare and entrance. polytheism explored through the prism of a polyphonic synth, mysticism born from machine drums, -ethnosonology of the future.-
Deep Sound Channel
after a year’s hiatus optimo music disco plates returns with the first of several planned releases.
first up is long time friend phil kieran with an ep made specifically with optimo in mind. it has been tried and tested over recent months and more than ticks all our boxes. we feel confident it will tick yours too.
phil says “the ep was recorded in my house and made up of mostly live percussion performed live by thomas tettey annang. originally from ghana, he moved to belfast some years ago. it just so happens his wife is a close friend of my sisters and that was the first introduction. thomas now runs -releasing rhythms” here in belfast teaching drum classes.
we used a wide selection of traditional african drums that all have their own name, each one has a style and a sound. the rhythms used in this record would stem back to south american rhythms but using african drums. this was a sound and rhythm that influenced early post punk records in new york and still has an influence on dance music today.”
jaki liebezeit, der masterdrummer, hatte seine freude an der tatsache, dass der trommelbau seit menschengedenken sich nicht wesentlich verändert hat. ob ein fell jetzt mit schnüren oder mit schrauben auf dem kessel gespannt wird, ob es ein natur- oder plastikfell ist - das prinzip bleibt dasselbe: beide umschließen einen hohlraum, ohne den es keinen klang gäbe (man stelle sich eine trommel vor, die innen drin mit lehm gefüllt wäre.) so ähnlich ist auch die rhythmus-auffassung. das Überflüssige fällt weg. dir leere mitte erscheint. das unsichtbare ist das entscheidende. alle stücke auf der zweiten ep von drums off chaos kreisen um diese leere mitte. im zentrum ist - nichts. hier geht es um abstrakte, groovende trommel-musik. die rhythmen sind so weit auf ihren elementaren kern reduziert, dass sie zwar eindeutig singulär, aber auch allgemeingütig verstanden werden können. es kommt etwas zum vorschein, das allgemeinen gesetzen wie gravitation, ergonomik und akustik folgt. „spiel, was die trommel will,“ war einer von jakis sätzen. das hat drums off chaos sich mit ihm zusammen zu herzen genommen. im zentrum stehen rhythmen, die auf einfachen zahlenverhälnissen gründen, um ihren reichtum aus sich selbst heraus zu entfalten.
centrifuge ep is the debut vinyl release on new hardgroove techno german label called kickmasomaass. this label was especially created to bring high quality hardgroove and tribal techno music for the real djs and a new life to vinyl. centrifuge ep is the first part of two vinyls where you can find a original version from slovakian hardgroove techno dj and producer andy bsk and three remixes from g8, goncalo m and wyrus. untill the original version is characterized by a groovy bassline with smooth percusions and synths, the g8 remix goes a little higher and bring the entire track to another level with great progressive sounds of trance and techno with a little acid synths too. don t need to write too much about the remix from hardgroove icon goncalo m because all hardgroove fans know how great his music work is. only a couple of words: killer beat, killer bass, killer percussions, this track kills all clubs and partys. next remix is from hardgroove producer wyrus. his remix is based on a killer beat with heavy percussions and at the lenght with over seven minutes is this track great for mixing. centrifuge ep is for all people they love hardgroove techno and we from kickmasomeass label will bring you only the best from the best. hope you all will appreciate our work and will support our label in the future too. may the hardgroove techno be with you.
ANOTHER JAM EP
nandu returns for his 2nd release on connected with another unique pair of tracks, the first an african influenced song with the mesmerising vocals of oluhle, the second a 909 style acid dark dancefloor workout. 1. nandu & oluhle - umfazi omuhle (original mix)- a gentle almost cautious arrangement building slowly and ethereally with a beautiful selection of sounds and an african influenced nandu rythm with shakers and claves providing an original feel and leaving space for oluhle’s moving vocals. 2. nandu – another jam (another acid dub)- a more aggressive, upfront side from nandu. for the intense spot of the night with twisted groove of claps and percussion, heavier in the lows with a proper 909 kickdrum with the acid line coming in half way through..... hot.
four triangles focuses on sharing music from upcoming producers whose talents are limitless, but have never before shared their work with the world.
asok’s label is at it again on this third release, showcasing five tracks from brighton-based charles green, best known as one of the resident djs at one of the city’s most lauded clubs, patterns. by tapping into his understanding of dancefloor dynamics and a lifelong passion for machine music, green has delivered a debut that’s as assured as it is thrilling.
