a little less than two and a half years after its conception—and close to 30 singles, one compilation, one mix cd and one sublabel later—berlins mobilee releases its first artist album. naturally, who better to represent the milestone than pan-pot, who so far have delivered five essential singles to mobilee, helping to anchor the ever-shifting sound of one of europes most exciting labels. in just two short years, with 10 singles (for mobilee and einmaleins musik) and lots of remixes, theyve become known far and wide for their distinctive, groovy, and above all ominous sound. pan-o-rama finds the boys stretching that sound in every possible direction: twisting, tearing, and using the shreds to drag a wide swath of techno history into the future (and, just maybe, to drag a few pieces of techno future back into the past). call it minimal if you must, but this aint no clickity-clack shit. you can hear the agonized gurgle of isolationist acid, reminiscent of plastikmans darkest nights. you can hear the percolating urgency of classic bleep techno. tried and true hardware collides with restless digital experimentation as dance musics dna worms its way into twisted new shapes. pan-o-rama is dark, thats for damned sure. eerie vocals that seem to come from within the listeners own head creep across the stereo field. throughout, restrained minor-key melodies conjure 21st century noir, and a relentless low-end rumble seems to suck up all the light around it
big teaser release to the upcoming album >pan-o-rama< from pan pot !! any words nessecary. incl a well produced pumpin anja schneider remix. supported by major players & producers like 2000 and one, italoboyz, karotte, mike shannon, shinedone and mike monday

marc antona makes his mobilee debut with this agile, wiry three-track ep . best known until now for his records for paris >freak n chic< label marc builds on the mobilee sound you have come to expect, with well-oiled rhythms, delicate pings and sub-bass rumble that knocks your feet out from under you. >one more sugar< rides along a loose-limbed groove splashed with bright arpeggios that rain down like liquid diamonds. ragged hi-hats aflare, tension builds and breaks like a ripped flag catching crosswinds. the track stretches toward the horizon, throwing up rolling hills and gliding down them as naturally as a champion cyclist. understated funk that packs a hidden punch...

baobinga makes his mantra breaks debut with shake it. its a rolling bass monster that will literally leave you quaking in your boots! there is also a heavy techno influence with uplifting stabs and plenty of electronic weirdness. label buddy madox has been a busy putting the final touches to his debut album but luckily for us he has still found time to provide a stomping rendition. the growling bassline relentlessly drives this badboy, which will keep the dancefloor jumping for joy

played by deep dish, milk & sugar, eric decks… his first own single is about to be released on milk & sugar recordings. saxophobic satisfaction is a catchy sax-track with unmistakable balearic flair that will fit perfectly to the pending summer. flavoured with the sexy vocals of halfindian kyra this strong remix package including mixes by christian hornbostel (soulfuric, us), stereo mutants (defected, uk) and doc phatt (houseworks, ch) seems pretty much promising. >satisfaction< guaranteed!

trulz & robin are trulz kvam & robin crafood from norway. good friends with lindstrom & prins thomas (eskimo), they produce a mixture of totally deranged nu-disco & killer techno with detroit influences (which they rightly called >acid-house gone organic<) on their own planet noise imprint they run with ost & jex (crosstown rebels). they head for the suicide headquarters with a collection of trax, produced together, separately or with fellow producer christian cook and featuring some vocals by bassman. from killer dutch-influenced electro (>chest of gold<, the title track) to seriously hitting acid-techno (the weirdly-named >gummi tarzan<) and superb techno/electronic house (>feel techno<), this is a mixed bag of really original & crazy scando-med asylum dance music for your feet and your soul
great follow up to the >super constellation ep<. supported by kiki, xpansul, karotte and jeff milligan !! the virtuose producer marcin czubala from poznan is back on mobilee. after his first and by the way very successful “super constellation” release on mobilee “we got an offer we can´t refuse”. he once again delivers the same groovy and unique czubalaquality. with this ep he finally became part of the mobilee famiglia.the theme is inspired by italian mafia movies from the late 70ies. so better wear bullet proof vests when listening to the tracks. mario puzo would love the music

recognise is a ruthless peaktime roller, wrapped up in a jackin house vibe and armed with a bassline that just wont let you stand still for a second. baobinga & i.d.s latest production has already been shaking the floor during their monthly residency at fuse, manchester with early support also coming from the likes of krafty kuts, skool of thought & 30hz. vandal is arguably the production worlds finest exponent of electro tinged breakbeat, producing hits like mad as hell on meat katies lot49 imprint which received 25 plays on bbc radio 1 or delivering the goods which went on to become one of plastic rayguns most successful releases. since his first release he has built up a reputation for constantly pushing the breaks sound, his remix of recognise provides a text book example, delivering a throbbing breakbeat madness that already has the backing of hyper
