instrumental music is supposed to be asemantic and yet a rich language of rhetorical gestures has grown up around it. none of them may have a specific meaning but they easily lead the listener towards an emotion. a sensation. an embryonic story. does any of this mean that music is abstract? or does it. to the contrary. mean that music tells a story? there is no abstraction without a story. is there a story without an abstraction? the composition on this album. is it a radio play? tropa macaca = andré abel and joana da conceição check out their earlier albums. they’re just as great.

genosha basic artists. ghost in the machine make their perc trax debut! full picture sleeve perc trax returns to the dance floor after the political firestorm that was perc s bitter music with the debut release on the label from the netherland s ghost in the machine. the perc and therefore perc trax name stems from the word percussion and these three drum-focused tracks sum up the label s name perfectly. rarely appearing away from their own genosha basic imprint this ep hits as hard as anything on perc trax in recent years and along with recent releases from ansome and scalameriya ushers in a new wave of artists and a distinct new chapter in the perc trax story. the holy grill commands the whole of the a-side and charges forward until a reese led breakdown gives you a moment to pause for breath. the b-side contains two percussive workouts that have enough movement and development to them to elevate them above simple drum tools. as b2 track pskdt s locked groove loops endlessly (a first for perc trax). it is clear this ep is a hard-hitting statement of intent from a duo you should be hearing a lot more on perc trax in the near future.

we live in the time when rave is the word that is only used when people want to describe a fierce party or to describe colors. styles and some types of electronic music. basically. the word -rave- became sort of a metaphor. but back in the days. it was the name for the revolution. no less than that. warehouse memories was born to give a direction to that revolution. this is rave 001.
as mosaic reaches release number 40. steve o sullivan dives into another studio collaboration with his new label mate and expert hand. mike schommer - bringing in the talents of rod modell on remix duties. etching two slices of dub heavy grooves that cover either side of the techno and house spectrum. their first effort emphasises the former on title track -submerged- (b1). it doesn t pull any punches - precision moulded bass takes centre stage around evolving synths and classic delay action. their 2nd -depth charge dub- (b2) leans more towards the latter as the duo focus on the combination of a rolling sub. laidback percussion and subtle stabs that cycle gently around. the cherry on top comes in the form of rod modell s -deepchord s negative-space exploration version- as he takes a 9 min trip to the hinterland of his sonic imagination. elegantly finding new layers and spatial effects. call it what you will. dubbed out house with a splash of techno or dubbed out techno with a splash of house - this is heavyweight material.

this initial release on the new futurepast label marks davy’s first output as a producer. crystallizing his endeavours in the studio and bearing witness to his long-standing experiments in electronic music. built between london and berlin over the last four years. the long now lays down the blueprints for following ventures on the label: using old and new gear to create unique. obscure soundscapes both outside of memory and away from nostalgic projections of lost futures. in a timeless and precise collaboration. davy has brought together two historical figures for this release: 1990s r&s records associate david morley mixed the tracks. while simon davey of the exchange lent his renownedmastering skills to the project. temporality. time travel and perception are key concepts for davy. and not only in the ep’s title. the four stripped-down tracks move forwards. sidewards and backwards in a bid to get us lost – not in space but in what time might sound like should we be swimming through it. mysterious and ageless synths mesh with the beats of an unnamed drum machine under davy’s control. we move through a non-linear story told by three distinct forward-thinking techno titles: no memories planned. circular weeks and causal loop. finally. the titular ambient track pans out cinematically over the images left in our heads: an invitation to begin it all again in the long now...

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.
it was 2016 when we last saw the venezuelan duo. better known as fur coat. drop their debut ‘interstellar ep on watergate records and now they finally return with their follow up. the ‘immersion ep. immersion kicks off with an agile kick drum setting the stage for rapid fire percussion and an overwhelmingly satisfying ascending organ line that could be the trademark of any sci-fi film score. add a few shudders of glimmering atmospherics and its a trek into the cosmic realm of techno where space and time cease to exist. flipping sides the duo dive deeper into the infinite expanse with inner circle where lush textures canvas a mesmerizing groove and hypnotic spirals of gratifying repetitive sonics resulting in a fiercely energetic yet undeniably euphoric expedition under the club lights. embracing the tools and mechanics that have made their sound unique and successful for so long. fur coat seems to have delivered their most mature and polished ep to date with their ‘immersion ep where stunning spacial details and a precise attention to detail have embodied the age old saying. less is more. fur coat is back. immerse yourself.
after releases by cez and ashac. high ends returns with an ep by thomas romain and his mother. famed free jazz pianist christine wodrascka. christine’s style is wholly unique: there are no barriers for her sonic exploration. sound matter. energy. forms. architecture and emotion all play a part in shaping the style of one the most unique musicians out there. with influences such as cecile taylor. terry riley or thelonious monk. no two wodrascka performances are the same. in his own irregular style. thomas adds a sense of swing to his mother’s improvisations. this fusion of acoustic and electronic creates wholly original experimental journeys which will delight the auditory senses of those listening.

another brace of bangers from world unknown music. we re all really pleased with how this one turned out. big and fat and disco-ready. mastered by andy blake and lawrie curvepusher via tape. side x theo nasa lstnbrghn world unknown and theo nasa first crossed paths in andres branco s vintage designer clothes emporium. wavey garms. . we re really chuffed to be releasing theo s vinyl debut. its a pounding big room monster inspired by his first experiences of a certain berlin nightclub. theo nasa will be a big deal sometime soon. there s no doubt about that. make sure you get on this now so you can tell all your mates how you have been into him for ages. side y traynor - sunward -can i send you some tracks to listen to? id love to get some feedback from you. not an especially odd request for a dj these days. but it s a very nice surprise when literally every track in an 8 track demo package from someone who has never put any music out before is brilliant. messrs bowley and blake had real trouble deciding which one to choose for traynors debut release and eventually went to sunward. its trippy and shimmering with a ton of pump. trancey but not trance. or maybe it is. the kind of thing that lights up your night in a club and gets played again and again at home or in the car
the identity of belgian mystery man beton is a complete mystery to us. what we do know is that twin turbo owner/assistant webmaster tiga has called this record the best release of the past five years. even when you consider that tiga believes he experiences time differently from the rest of us. that still means the soundtrack of your life for the past half-decade has been straight-up garbage in comparison. since most djs wont even listen to a record if they dont like the track descriptions. we realize a lot is riding on the next paragraph. acid-electro bomb directions is a collaboration with wevie stonder. who call themselves an absurdist electronic music collective. which youd have to agree sounds like a lot of fun. meanwhile. keep breathin completely redefines the term pump-bumpin pumper. and features vocals from dance mania ghetto house legend dj deeon. twin turbo keeps puttin hot mp3s in your pocket. offering maximum value for your hard-won digital nickels. as far as we know. youve earned it.
troy gunner continues to strengthen his new imprint gunner with a second self-released title. having had 001 hotly-tipped by the likes of ra. dj mag and mixmag - plus a plethora of dj support from hodge. zenker brothers. john osborn. carl craig and moxie to name but a few. gunner stays firmly on track with another trio of armoured uk-techno tracks packed with chilly atmospherics and gnarly drums.
