viers clocks back in on figure duty. showing up with up for another strong statement of his unmistakenly singular style. here he is working it from all angles: straight up and searingly stoic techno opener let my mind breath is grinding away grittily. while things turn surprisingly bouncy. as genesis dishes out electrifying boom-bap-breakbeats. transporting imagery of neo-futuristic tokyo streets. as night sets in. so does the kinetic groove of oyasumi. which twirls layers of energetic movement into a thick current. zooming through the citys deep gorges of concrete and fiber glass. closing track data entry 4590 finally provides some soothing ambient tones of melancholic longing. inviting to slowly drift away into white-washed nothingness and process the bright color storm that viers lets unfold on this intense record.

vidab x returns with a new artist. faltin. who chooses to remain anonymous. plus a stepping rework by gowentgone aka label owners oliver deutschmann and stephan hill. faltin s phobos is a stripped down analogue masterclass. rolling and snaking. its arpeggiated lead growls with a hot headed tension. climbing while never losing balance and poise. the gowentgone stepper translates the original into a heavyweight. early-morning trip - a certain hybrid of broken beats and techno attitude that melts between genres. waves of euphoria are carried by rumbling drums in this essential version.
a song dedicated to his wife and their marriage. the song contains so much captured emotions. from shimmering synths and old school orchestra hits to a solid walking bass line that solidifies the love for the dance floor. on the dub mix. santiago stripped the track down for a big sound system leaving a heavy bass line and strings throughout the track. esteban adame presents guaguanco. i wrote this track while playing with g2g and mike banks was always pushing us to electrify your roots. though my family is not cuban. cuban music has been a huge part of my musical development as a musician. the track uses traditional cuban rumba rhythms (guaguanco) to trigger synths and percussion samples alike to create a dense polyrhythmic cushion for the track to sit on.

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.

for her first single. the sublime title loverboy comes out as a big urban spleen. released in a space made of asphalt and artificial paradises. groups like hooverphonic or even portishead play around this throbbing softness that is loverboy. splashing about in the electronic lounge of the 90s. the opener. alien lady features a flute-driven solo backed up by a funky guitar riff that then transitions into a tropical beat and tanja narrating the story of feeling a stranger in a big city. not understanding the social codes and clues ‘i don t speak the language in the way that you know’ while worth to you is a dreamy. glitched-out hypnotic track which maintains an edge of mysterious sexuality and her signature sense of intimate detachment. if the atmosphere coming out of lomboy’s work can be sometimes felt as prude and even shy. it certainly does not intend to hide with embarrassment the aphrodisiac scent that permeates it. on the contrary. this modesty perceived in the interpretation and in the production sensually envelops the different compositions. and imparts to this guilty pleasure the feeling of a stolen kiss. warped caress brings us to vertiginous heights and takes us into abyssal depths throughout the five tracks. this suggests at times a diegetic representation of this erotic world seen through the insolent prose and at other times a mimetic representation where each instrument plays an important part in every story told.

zoe mc phersons exploration of this world on string figures is a deeply rhythmic. immersive and forward-thinking piece of elec-tronic-leaning music that remains just as danceable as it does experimental. the album is fundamentally one of duality. exploring the traditional and the contem-porary. organic and electronic. audio and visual. history and the future. rooted in this duality is also a core theme around string being one of the most ancient and playful art forms and the seemingly infinite possibilities it offers in terms of shapes. structures and figures lines up with this as a trans-global art project. one that over time will involve video art. choreography. 3d motion design. macro film. instrumental and electronic sound. although for now is being presented through an av performance. films and a record with mc pherson collaborating with director alessandra leone over the seven tracks (which are laid out as chapters) the record explores glitchy elec-tronics. dub-tinged grooves. polyrhythms. and a huge array of instruments that takes in quiet blasts of atonal sax alongside wonky synths.

born in poland and now operating out of the ever-effervescent london. the adoptive city where she’s learnt the ropes of music production and djing. anii – real name ania iwinska – has lived many lives in one. yet if one thing’s remained a constant over the years. no matter the harshness of the obstacles life threw at her. it’s indeed a deep and inextinguishable love for music. be it behind the mixing desk at wired studios or in her own shoreditch workroom. the key place where she’s kept honing her skills with unfazed diligence. up to the point of making it her actual second home. ań......ii lands her debut transmission on kompakt and surely not the last. named after the polish word for ‘roots’. ‘korzenie’ finds ania threading her way in between subtle deep-house and techno folds. delving into the essential strength of her past and present to carve out an hypnotic maelstrom of traditional polish music strings. tribal percussions and elegiac melodies. coupling eerie ostinatos with stealthy bass moves. it’s an ode to the magnitude of memory and power of resilience that reels out. blurring the line between late night club environment and further spacious. moony soundscapes.

waggons marks the third motip white release on dorfjungs. after the two previous eps »lywer bent« and »the white ep« this one feels drunken yet still more defined. motip white delivers four thrilling tracks composed of colourful and warm techno. house and electronic hybrids. his ep contains bass driven dance songs as well as cautious and charming anthems. while every song has got its special elements with the typical motip white sound. they all work equally well on the dance floor and at home. the smooth and calm fourth track ends the vinyl but is actually caught up by the euphoric digital bonus »simia«. which brings the ep to a surprising though satisfying (digital) end.
