macht macht zement - what does it mean? 80s drums. synths and vocals. almost without context.
..fallbeil. two soon-to-be men (aka boys). finish tracks at the rate of butchers kneading meatballs. due to laziness and a lack of technique. everything gets recorded on one track and immediately thrown into the frier.
..nothing is planned. first up. school detention followed by rough lofi rap.
..the album contains a wide variety of themes from mailmen to warthogs. from latecomers to sensible conversation. every track is created out of spontaneity. two very short tracks on this album date back to 1999. when the boys performed as ‘funky granatos’ in the local youth centers. sadly. their performances werent successful. nobody wanted to listen to them and almost every concert ended in mass brawls.
..the track postman comes from the duos side project grand malheur and was recorded in 2015 in bronxfeld. more output from this project will appear on various eps in the near future.
..the album title macht macht zement originates from tom pötgen. tom always wanted to throw the sacred hand grenades. we hope he does that right now!

let your brain slowly melt to the delightful sounds of dima disk. having first heard their music via the palace x bronze skate video a year or so ago. we did a bit of digging and it turned out to be by a duo called dima disk. one half of whom was an old glasgow pal called ragnar and robert nikolajev from tallinn s legendary club lekker. you may have heard their recent ripper on porridge bullet. having been fans of the shit coming out of estonia for a good few years and also having a thing for releasing music from our glasgow connections we felt that this needed to come out as a rad 12-.

infinite density – the new album by the berlin based. cuban-american artist blush response – is a fantastical exploration into the depths of industrial and ebm techno in collaboration with techno frontman adam x’s infamous imprint. sonic groove. influenced by the progressive noise of autechre. front line assembly and skinny puppy the producer has previously released with aufnahme +wiedergabe and ant-zen. as well as getting his hands dirty with programming work for the industrial pioneers fear factory. rhys fulber as well as latin pop singer cristian castro. infinite destiny takes a firm grip on situationally influenced content. pulling every corner of berlin into its belly for a challenging and unique sound – a sound that’s able to maintain functionality whilst simultaneously exposing loose wires of wild flangers and disturbed sampling. these erratic waves are expressed through the productions infinite density. aum shinrikyo. survivor guilt and dead still air. showcasing the most alien meta-bodies of blush’s sound. as an appropriation on contemporary acidic sound. the sonic motions of serpentine and tryptamine delve into explorations within the acid genre. rhys fulber’s string contribution on painkiller initiates a whirlwind rhetoric of distortion. panic stricken. no solace and tessellate focus on strong industrial pads that carry the density of each track whilst infinite dread’s ebm back bone hits hard with heavy arpeggiation. crucial to its form. the album showcases new experimental sound that repurposes algorithms of today’s dancefloor dogma. blush response exposes these paradigms through mutated build-ups and drops. however. his innovative “modular synth heavy” sound design obscures the flow in a way that permeates the concrete arenas his productions are designed for – in true berlin style.

optimo trax presents a 4-track ep from germanys mathias schober. head honcho of berlin’s lossless label. as always we prefer to let our artists do the talking. heres what mathias has to say about this release - the idea behind all tracks on the ep was a simple setup of drums and one synth that would do a main sequence/sound. yet theres a lot of detail in all of them. in a certain way features a 808ish beat with a main sequence coming from a tiny monophon synth called atmegatron - 8bit love. it turned out being much more music than i thought it would be when i set everything up. but what rules are made for is the same setup but the sequence is a 101 and so are all the washed out fx synths. on is to break them i went a different route. i had the dub. delayed stabs synth first as i was messin with my moog and a space echo - which btw is used on every single track i release. if you haven’t noticed yet. so i was trying to build something around those stabs in order to fit the track to the others and so i ended up with another sequence coming from my moog. as there was still space on the record. i decided to add an ambient version of is to break them. i love the ambience on this track. i hope that my love for dub sounds is obvious enough on these tracks. happy i found such an excellent home for the ep!

fadi mohem ́..s interest in electronic music began to rise when he first discovered drum and bass at an early age. since then he built up an extensive stylistic portfolio that has no genre boundaries. with the reckless ep. a first excerpt can now be tested out on the dance floor. „we are- and „reckless- on the a-side are uncompromising techno. both pieces are markedly aggressive and captivate with drifting synths and grooving drums. with „on the run- on the flip side. fadi mohem shows his more experimental side carrying broken drum patterns and atmospherical synths. the soundscapes of this thoroughly crafted record will absorb the listener into another dimension. the fact that his debut single simultaneously marks the first catalog number of the new label of berlin event series werk is actually consistent with the same sphere of emerging producers ready to step up and challenge the old guard. the record lays the foundation. both for werk and mohem himsel
it’s time to celebrate. nothing less than 50 releases spread along 17 years of existence. for this very reason we have planned this awesome remixes pack. split in two ep’s based in the limited clear vinyl pattern series originals.

silent servant provides an always dark. always monotonous. always semi industrial and stripped down rework of color. a wonderful mixing tool. while kanding ray ads floating pads and flanging sequences taking the original form to cosmic new age territories. cassegrain focuses on the beat content of texture. making an almost strictly percussive workout aimed straight to the dancefloor.

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
after a feature on steffi s fabric 94 mix cd (and the accompanying dolly deluxe 3 release). late night approach debuts on klakson with a hyper funky electro twelve. the two tracks on the a side both show machine music that s simultaneously human. whether it s the melancholic shards of melody buried under -clarence mews- commanding rhythmic pulsations. or the beautifully striking chords on -luvquest-. however. the b-side takes us to gloomy subterranean pastures with the uptempo banger -primo-. while a2 -kit- crosses over into broken beats but still keeps the same shadowy atmosphere.

hybrid techno tracks full of tension on time to express number 30. presented by label founder peter van hoesen. the belgian producer takes up the opportunity to expand upon his previous work on the coast to coast ep. no longer exclusively restricted to straight 4/4 rhythms. van hoesen s music investigates hybrid. broken grooves infused with a clear sense of spatial sonic awareness. this is made clear with the first two tracks. towards manifestation and fox tactics. on the second half of the ep van hoesen launches two solid techno cuts. shifting from dense bassline work (concrete varition) to percussive. shuffling grooves (fox tactics). as with all previous time to express outings a specific i ching hexagram was chosen to accompany this release. hexagram #10 ( treading upon the tail of the tiger ) refers to advancement with care and ways of respectful progress. the title of the ep is a direct reference to the first line of this intriguing hexagram. nine at the beginning will be released on vinyl and digital formats on october 23rd 2017. a specially designed t-shirt will be made available at the same time. interpreting hexagram #10 through its design.
the new ep by rroxymore signals another audacious step forward for one of the most daring artists in the electronic music diaspora. thoughts of an introvert part 1 is born out of introspection. out of the necessity to disconnect from the frenzy of crowds and to create a soundtrack to an inner landscape which exists beyond the reach of government and dogma. in the words of the artist. -it is a sonic diary of sorts. cataloguing the events of a world which has not yet been invented. in the form of three mesmerizing dance tracks free of nostalgia and the expectations of style.- the spatial afro futurist funk of prodrome finds rroxymore balancing darkness and optimism as only she can. the title track. thoughts of an introvert is instantly familiar and carries a soothing utopian spirit. so needed today. mycetozoa. the closing track is bouncing. drum driven and mad. a celebration of rroxymore s complex musical mind. offset by irresistibly banging toms and rolling rimshot patterns. it is a track which is at once melancholic. happy. vulnerable. and full of hope. everything seems possible on the dancefloor this music was written for

apollo proudly presents a full release of the stunning debut album released by sw. sw s lush sound design and hypnotic arrangements nestles snugly alongside the classic 90’s apollo releases of biosphere and robert leiner in all their balmy glory. originally issued on vinyl only via sw’s own sued imprint. this apollo re-release represents something of a coup in that it’s the first of the label’s music to ever be presented digitally. as a label. sued has formed a reputation for releasing some of the most vital and sought after contemporary dance-floor vinyl. from both sw and svn. as well as collaborations and comradeship with other analogue obsessed auteurs such as dynamo dreesen (who teams up with svn as dresvn). dj sotofett. dj fett burger. pg sounds and club no-no. aka snorre magnar solberg.
