... one day he found a great. reddish slab of stone on the side of the road. it shone. could he transfer the very same color onto himself? he searched and found a rough surface which he used to scrub the stone hunk until there was a pile of crimson powder. mixing it with water. he coloured his body with the shinning red. standing there painted. he began to sing. as he sang. the stone slab on which he stood opened and swallowed him up. even today. on passing this stone. they say one can still hear the song of the enchanted. from below the surface of amsterdam s underground. depth over distance will release its first ep of spaced out grooves conjured by eversines. four jams covering the spectrum of deep electronic music ranging from slow building anthems (pyramids) and acid fuelled dubs (transition portal and vultures) to the celestial closing pads of the other side signifying the first stop on this journey.

say what you wanna say. but you have to give strahil velchev this: the manÆs a powerhouse. recording and playing live under the kink alias. he went on to become one of finest purveyorÆs of funk in techno and house. what it is. by definition. ainÆt exactly clear. and that is the beauty of it. kinkÆs music is unifying in the best possible way. channeling the spirit and feeling of a time where it didnÆt really matter who the faces behind the music were. kink plays with the elements of genres and sub-genres as if the future of it all is still wide-open. at the same time it could be accused of retro-fetishism. as much as the pope himself is infallible. the pure need to recreate moments. feelings and experience - rather than carbon copies of existing designs - was what started kinkÆs production work. hailing from bulgaria. it was nearly impossible to get your hands on all the records and music that fed into a system of raves. clubs and record shops that seemed far away from sofia. and financially it might as well have meant another galaxy. wanting to dj without having access to the tracks that spun the carousel meant that you had to create them yourselves. so. here we go with a private bootlegger gone public mastermind and one of the loudest voices in house. techno and beyond. from kinkÆs early productions with neville watson to his smash-hit for ovum. a cerebral album for macro. tons of remixes & tracks and his mind-bending live act. playground seems to take all that into a blender. simultaneously a sound-summary. the harvest of a field of ideas. and the exhibition of an artist in his prime. it also works as a sort of kink dictionary: avant-garde soundscapes stand next to boisterous bangers. classic club tracks and peak time emotions

doorly s reptile dysfunction continues to prove itself to be one of the most vibrant and singular labels around. this time tapping up legendary producer jaydee for its latest release. jaydee is a dance music pioneer. best know for the seminal plastic dreams - a track that. somewhat terrifyingly for those who remember it the first time around. will be celebrating its 25 th anniversary next year - he has continued to be a leading light in innovative house and techno productions. releasing on r&s and ellum audio in the last few years. here. he teams up with fellow dance music visionary doorly for a searingly brilliant release on the latter s reptile dysfunction imprint. acid pressure ep presents two original cuts from jaydee. with supporting remixed from doorly and trooko. kicking things off. back into acid opens with stunningly heartfelt pads before building to a killer acid line via shimmering percussion and erotically charged vocal snatches. bring the pressure is more direct: a house roller softened by basic channel-esque chords and with added rhythm courtesy of the accompanying ragga chants. on the remix front. doorly flips back into acid into something far more menacing. with fierce synths stabs and rolling drums creating a head down stomper. while trooko chops back into pressure into pieces. crafting a thumping main room house cut from the constituent parts. complete with an epic. piano-led breakdown.
van abbes fresh no comment release presenting 2 originals. a killer remix by the exaltics and a debut track by pantone 32. it wasnt until she opened the old pocket watch – its timeworn silver surface glimmering slightly in the darkness – that she understood that something was terribly wrong. it was audibly pounding in her hand like some kind of bizarre metal heart. and it was decidedly running backwards. she could not move and she could not take her eyes off the spinning indicators. >stop<. she whispered. then again. louder this time: >stop!<. the watch stopped and fell silent. she exhaled and moved uneasily on the spot. the floorboards creaked. wait. the floorboards? there werent any floorboards in her room. it was all concrete and glass and…. her room wasnt there anymore. she was standing in an old workshop brimming with ancient-looking machinery covered in sawdust. no-one was operating the equipment but their ghostly echoes were still floating through the air. buzzing. hammering. humming – almost melodic to her ears. the pocket watch came to life in her hand. acting as a steady metronome to the spectral orchestra. she wasnt home anymore. but it certainly was.
yay 008 is finally on the way. a big welcome to les points with their first release on yay recordings. 4 tracks in a different style where electro. techno and acid are the main ingredients for this solid ep.
david mayer needs little introduction. affiliated with the flourishing keinemusik label his output as a producer and a dj over the last 9 years has been massive. forging his name as an expert in percussive precision funked up and pounding 4/4 driven deep techno and house. his recent remix of connected release ‘lust’ (tigerskin and k.e.e.n.e feat elli) was testament to his classic treatment resulting in a huge track that featured heavily on dancefloors worldwide.
fort romeaus second outing for running back is another exercise in dance floor synthesis. starting where its predecessor saku left us with the green shimmer of a fairlight. emulators you might have guessed it greets us with the grey realism of an e-mu ii. purchased first by none other than stevie wonder. immortalised in ferris buellers ode to absenteeism and the original loon sampler. there is nothing this machine cannot do for you the same goes for fort romeau. his disco-informed. trance-induced tracks that usually end on a high note. are elevated by ambient soundscapes that end with a bang and sugarcoat your warm-up slots. while bird-heavy bonus beats that stand up on their own or help you out in the mix. nice like a stick of liquo-rice.
the essential uk techno/electronics duo returns after decades! new aural discourse holds four fresh. futuristic and far-sighted british takes on detroit techno by arguably one of british 1990 s electronic musics best-kept secrets. tip!
sound does not usually come from a single source. emotions usually do not come from a single source. the way we perceive is by filtering. within this complex process there are many difficulties to overcome and many discoveries to make. how long is the club inside of you - after you have been inside of him? how do love. soup and beer choices affect your daily life? and what do an island and an airport have in common? by morphing real life situations into musical phantasies mr. tophat tries to find answers to these and many other questions. along the way there is darkness but also fun and hope.
following a splendid album release from falke earlier this year. now comes a remix selection that linked friends and personal idols: samo dj. vakula. perm & ergin erteber (1/2 of things from the basement). utilising the original stems to rebuild unique characteristic jams. o.n.g. – versions satisfies with hypnotic percussions. etheral grooves. varied velocities and cryptic 80s references.
over the past three years melbournes albrecht la brooy have patiently cultivated their own space within australias prolific electronic music scene. deeply rooted in technos ambient influences. the duo improvise their compositions with an overarching approach that breaks away from techno s conventional presentation. recorded in one take from beginning to end. escape velocity sees albrecht la brooy take on the voyage aesthetic and principles to create a twenty five minute odyssey spanning four passages. to be played continuously across the 12inch medium. utilising both sparse. drifting ambient palettes and driving. machine-led rhythms. escape velocity is a pensively uplifting account of future travels through space and the ninth installment to the voyage catalogue. both sides of the vinyl are cut as continuous sides.
after dropping their first various. figures. slowciety is about to release guru. sunrom’s next ep. the artist has already worked with prestigious labels like kompakt. ancient future now and the bricks. the ep lays down four organic tracks for a blend of deep house. world music and techno. the title track sounds like a ride on acid and is followed by quirigua. a rich track conjuring transcendent mayan rituals. the b side opens with elephant’s deep muffled kicks and takes off with utopia’s elegant arpeggiator for a final flight. this strange and personal ep will cast a spell on the dance floor.
for the third and final part of jerome.c. dubfluss - friendship connection we invited julian alexander and guy from downstairs to join our artist roster. a lot of hard work was made into this 3 part lp by our good friends and we hope everyone enjoys it as much as they did producing it. lots of melodic grooves and solid bass lines. proper house music dance tracks on this release. cheers from berlin!
three new originals lead by llewellyn. a moniker you might already know. an offshoot of house and wavy disco traditions from martin enke aka lake people. with this little background information it should be obvious that you wont find clumsy claptrap or overflown sample banging here. what you get instead is a playful modesty that carries dance floors easily to peak time euphoria.
the new album including 10 new tracks out september 4th 2017 worldwide on vinyl & cd on jam. we believe music shouldn not be explained or overanalyzed. we would rather avoid too many useless words. just press play and listen to it.

im sommer 1999 aus der taufe gehoben. ist unsere total compilationserie kaum älter als das 21. jahrhundert selbst – was total 17 als letzte ausgabe vor der volljährigkeit kennzeichnet. und tatsächlich strahlt die 2017er kohorte einen verspielten Überschwang aus. mit dem sich nur wenig andere compilations nach über 15 jahren am markt messen können: labelveteranen und neuzugänge wie etwa superpitcher. weval. tobias thomas & michael mayer. chris klopfer. juergen paape. voigt & voigt. max scholpp und nu u orchestra begeistern mit einigen der eingängigsten tracks. die die serie bis dato gesehen hat.

first ep of the label lowlife cartel. dissociative tones. texture of the sound and atmosphere sought here. more than melody. no boundary in genre but same sonic ethos. the two sides of the ep includes two tracks ambient/downtempo fitting with patient listening. three other. lofi tracks. and more efficient to play into clubs. face a starts with -nerve splicing- by telekommunist. also known as wpx7. face covered and steps muffled through a deadening blizzard of tape saturation and white noisey envelops that find a balance between deepening the sense of immersion and a retained groove. -kairu- by a. latif. affiliated to the experimental and elusive russian label john s kingdom. an arsenal of textures are employed. surrounded all the time by different kind of breeths carving out a growingly satisfying contrast between the shivery charm of its melodic line and the roughness of its elements. a rough diamond. face b. -kfs-. by vslds (present on the next cousin carl release. after kinway and voyd) is a delusional and abstract piece of lofi hip hop. setting skittish drums and heavily altered rapper vox sample. smothered against a grey-ish canvas of blurry. washed-out pads. this feels both playful and unhealthy. -gotta go fast-. by paul santangelo (venetian causeway). is marked with the very personal style of this artist who does his way across the ever effervescent lofi techno scene. the round. drag-shed bass. fits with an introspective melody and atmosphere. -every man has a woman who loves him-. by loophie (raw russians). surprises the listener at the end of the disc with a lofi house track sampled from john lennon. very effective in club. the czech lofi house videomaker moskalus edited a video of it on his youtube channel. 5 artists to follow.

das ist die dritte veröffentlichung vom label funk injacktion records aus berlin als kollaboration von d. instructed und froyd. eine skurrile mischung aus rudimentärem industrial samba und free jazz artefakten frei von der leber weg und säurefestem electrofunk . einigen freunden der elektronischen musik ist sicher noch der name autopilot vom label elektrolux aus frankfurt bekannt. das projekt d. instructed steht für eine freie herangehensweise an analoge instrumente bzw drums . aus den jams und der improvisation entstehen die tracks genauso wie bei froyd. über die ehemalige stadtgrenze berlins hinaus. aus der ehemaligen ost-west-wurzel entstand ein neues mutterschiff für den märkischen funk.

music must be free. freedom in music is often suppressed by lack of. or by obstacles for creativity. which stops forward progression. the development that fontan’s songs have gone through. reaching this ep is unexpected and surprising but still. the bodies and characters of the original songs are intact and recrafted with fingerspitzengefuhle. from the core of fontan’s psychedelic and dreamy music. the artists involved on this release have hit cuts and chips off like cro-magnon people creating specific tools. tools with the power to blow holes open in the listeners mind.
come together: re.yous younion returns with more sublime unifying forces. beats that bring us closer. feelings that break down barriers and artist partnerships whose creative connections are more than the sum of their parts. the message is clear in every directio. from the longstanding younion parties across europe to the slow-but-smouldering rise of the label. of which we are proud to present its third release tapping into the very same younion spirit that regularly shakes the walls of iconic clubs such as watergate berlin and pacha barcelona. this four track ep is an incisively curated collective ep comprising three acts who complement each other implicitly. as the dust still settles from florian busses recent younion outing. and solomun continues to hammer the labels first release from eins tiefer. the timing couldnt be better. the perennially on-point dutchman rancido takes the lead with two deep tribal odysseys that take root in the sound he’s made his signature. both >lagos< and the vinyl-only >rabat< conjure deep mystic textures around his stately. restrained and constantly developing grooves. there is a reason he is released with the mighty innervisions in the past. deeper again re.you whips up a percussive storm over palpitating synths in the form of >dao< before handing the controls over to rising german duo cosmo & kramer for an inspiring finale. a duo re.you has been championing since they warmed up for him five years ago. >dance< is a calling card for an extremely exciting future… and it more than lives up to its name. three releases deep and younions unifying forces couldnt be stronger. its time to combine.
berlin-based producer. yapacc take on the original sees him transferring the song into a dancefloor-ready track whilst subtly maintaining the ambience of the original. off-beat house-esque sub-rhythms and a melodic bassline helps to keep the energy of the track moving forward. whilst the top end guitars and vocals keep the listener interest up until the very last second. russian-based dave pads remix also helps the original move onto the dancefloor with this incredibly funky. groovy-laiden back beat which simultaneously manages to hold onto the original tracks esthetical ambience. euphoric house stabs and a continuous layered texture sits behind the tracks groove. adding a sense of nostalgia and depth to an already emotive original.
