silo ep is a strong piece of work from berg jaär for planet rhythm. jaär is known for producing powerful & outgoing techno with an exotic touch to it. this 4-track pack covers a lot of ground and should be an excellent choice for lovers of techno with a more artful approach.
following a run of local transmissions from a sagittariun, crump, rob smith and atki2, idle hands turns its attention to berlin and the straight-up, no-nonsense techno thrust of johanna knutsson and hans berg. both respected artists and djs in their own right, the pair have been turning out 12inches together for the free spirit society, klasse and crime city disco over the past few years, but most importantly they ve been steering the excellent ufo station recordings as a vessel for their punchy, primal techno tracks. the sound on this ep taps into the pure form of stern, dark dancefloor tackle favoured at idle hands – no extraneous filler, plenty of space in the mix, but equally built with warmth and personality rather than monochrome functionality. if you need further proof, just look to the fact the ep is named after a swedish soap opera from the 90s. the bleeps and bass tones that pulse through -taggen- are so finely crafted they need not skip and dance around the arrangement. the melodic interplay on -klimax- is subtle but ultimately uplifting and optimistic where so much techno concerns itself with oppressive gloom. -bimbo- finds the pair embracing a more psychedelic approach, but even here the modulating effects processes are kept within certain boundaries so as to not dilute the impact on the floor. after all, this is music to dance to, to be felt over a large system (where possible). moving from leftfield bass excursions to minimalist 2-step, uk techno and now onto this much more continental sound, themälarviken ep continues to widen the range of idle hands musical tastes without losing sight of the complete picture.
SAMUNNATI (FEAT WA WU WE, KNUTSSON/BERG, JOSEPH S JOYCE MIXES (2X 12INCH)
2x12" Vinyl UK08.09.17
revered swedish producer sebastian mullaert releases his first exclusive vinyl on default position after the huge success of his remix to vedanta in 2014. sebastian first made his name as one half of the acclaimed duos minilogue and son kite, but in recent times focuses on his solo career, which sees him appearing at clubs and festivals all over the world and releasing on some of the industry s most respected labels and imprints. samunnati is a brand new double vinyl ep featuring four original mixes from mulleart, with remixes from fellow swedish duo johanna knutson & hans berg, belgium s danieli and label founder joseph s. joyce. its genesis lies in a melody recorded live on sebastian s roland sh101 which has been resampled and processed in many different ways, offering several contrasting mixes to suit many different tastes and styles.
the music of swedish producer hans berg often soundtracks sculptural installations produced in collaboration with his partner nathalie djurberg. working as an artistic duo since 2004, their output comprises animation, public sculpture, immersive environments and now, vinyl recordings taken from these same pieces. berg brings his experience in house and techno music culture to bear on this cooperative process. the first track began life as an accompaniment to the outdoor work in dreams (2016), installed at the wanås sculpture park in sweden. a naturalistic soundscape of birdsong gives way to a wave of complex, driving synth-pop, itself a shimmering reflection of the riotous, mirrored floor that nestled in the forest glade.
swedish producer hans berg returns to pooledmusics techno-focused sister imprint montage with another collection of uniquely esoteric techno. known for previous work on kant and collaborations with johanna knutsson, berg debuted on the label in 2015 with the field ep. his second outing once again provides another showcase for his intriguing rhythmic sensibilities and pleasingly askew take on the classic techno sound palette. the ep is completed by another heads-down burner of a remix from silvershower, aka label boss ian pooley.

this summer will mark the celebration of 5 years for power plant: its more than a label, its also a bold artistic offshoot for la fleur and the artists she nurtures in her electronic garden. and in 2016, those artists include circo loco residents acid mondays, the super-talented jesper ryom, knutsson/berg with acid nord and hot pp newcomer justin massei, who chooses to diss ya. and then of course theres la fleur herself, who offers up the soulful caged exclusively to the power plant 5 years compilation as a reminder of her developing melodic yet underground sound. limited vinyl edition comes with exclusive cover with cut out logo on inside out paper sleeve with matt disco sleeve inside.
hans berg and johanna knutsson return to the ufo station with their fourth release, a powerful trippy trip, through warped time and space. and guess who was waiting for them at the station? well,none other than fellow space traveller dungeon acid, who delivers a remix that just might knock your space pants off. the title track alien power is obviously inspired by the quantum fusion core phase shift warp power engine that drives the ufo station, a steady beat to keep you on the right side of the force, whereas the dungeon acid remix is a musical interpretation of the great warp speed interdimensional flux mishap of the year 2216. the track dubby is so named because it inherently describes the core feeling of the track! alien choirs and synched synths meet long delay lines in this dreamy piece.
introducing talk in technicolour, the debut release of cross-continental imprint night tide. produced by label founder eluize (emma sainsbury), the ep features three original tracks that showcase her unique sound. the release is rounded out by remixes from hans berg & seth nk and a trippy spoken word recording discovered while digging in the archives. make me sin swells and flows.
planet rhythm latest vinyl contribution comes by rennes based producer berg jaär. berg comes as a true addition to the ever growing prruk reportoire. firm drums and sturdy fx serve as the backbone of his contribution. with little info to be found about the french producer this release serves as the perfect example of the adventurous mode that planet rhythm currently finds itself in. moody yet intrusive in many ways.
the ufo station steered by knutsson/berg travels further into unknown territory with their third release, a solo ep from hans berg, inspired by the idea of whales communicating through galaxies and outer space oceans, vast underwater landscapes in foreign worlds. on whales ep we hear bergs trademark quirky melodies over lush pads and slamming drums, landing somewhere between detroit techno and scandinavian melancholy.
ian pooleys new techno label montage follows up the inaugural release from his silvershower alias by handing a label debut to hans berg, the swedish producer with previous releases for kant and known for collaborations with johanna knutsson.
johanna knutsson and hans berg s second output from their ufo station recordings is a piece of inspiriting space techno. music that reduces the force of gravity and makes your feet feel light and springy. music that makes you lift your head and gaze dreamily out the panorama windows as glittering melodies trickle down your spine, making you shudder with pleasure. a record overflowing with profound yet tender caresses of sound from the alien duo that will light up dance floors all across the galaxy.
jannowitz records is back with its distinctive style of music. synergizer is the name of patrik berg s new creation which will be released on jannowitz records. creating a symbiosis is the young labels intention.
365 million years ago a meteorite crashed with tremendous force in the middle of a land mass that much later would be called sweden, creating one of her largest lakes. the area around this lake, siljan, has always been an epicenter of swedish folklore, with many tales of beautiful but dangerous creatures of the ancient forests and deep vales. perhaps, then, it s no coincidence that the skies over siljan later became the focus of unexplainable sightings, or that small societies appeared, claiming strong indications of extraterrestrial activities on the bottom of the lake itself. the tales may change over time, but the mysterious lake remains the same. and now the time has come for a new tale from siljan. producer colleagues hans berg and johanna knutsson have spent long periods of time in a studio by this lake. feeling a bit like aliens themselves with their blinking and bleeping music machines, the label name ufo station recordings came naturally. little raver ep is the first release, and throughout the three tracks you can clearly sense the contrast between the scenic landscape and sounds inspired by space and alien technology: shimmering ethereal melodies over classic, very fulfilling drum machines. the melancholic singing of space whales over deep and bubbly analog basses. the little raver ep is a house music ufo destined to arouse wonder and astonishment on any dance floor.
after the launch of jannowitz records and its madness compilation release in the beginning of this year, the label impressively reports back with patrik bergs new track differently. it is a groovy techno tune that will encourage the listeners to dance
johannes albert, the man behind frank music and active dj producer, always moves the crowed with his raw deep beats. after a long time of back and forth with jackoff boss elie eidelman, the moment finally came together to create the suburban dreams ep. johannes produced two timeless trax and new secret duo berg joined with a new interoperation mix.
its been an impressive start for dutch label on records. over the course of their first three releases the music arm of the on and on artist agency has gathered fantastic support from many of the techno elite. this big name backing has come solely because of the quality of the music, as it should.
was braucht es mehr als beats, claps und samples für marc depulse und das duo boe van berg fehlt da so einiges: handgespielte instrumente, treibende basslines und rauchig-verträumte deutsche vocals charakterisieren die produktionen der drei musiker.
