washington dc’s rush plus drop four superb techno cuts entitled ‘the sweat ep’ on p.leone and caiazzo’s e-missions imprint this june. having dropped three quality releases on their own eponymous label, rush plus continue to turn heads with their imaginative productions, gaining support from the upper echelons of techno with names like rodhad, ben klock, dj spider, ben sims, slam, answer code request, dj deep and many more getting behind them. following up a release on ambivalent’s valence records, they now join p.leone and caiazzo’s rapidly rising e-missions imprint. ‘megabust’ initiates the package with twisted sci-fi synths and syncopated drums whilst rattling metallic elements operate throughout. intricate hits of percussion are soon followed by rumbling bass in ‘rebirth’ as the track gradually becomes more and more twisted using filtered effects and soaring pads, making way for the shuffling ‘sweat’ with its menacing stabs and echoing voices. finally, the package concludes with ‘slow release’ - a high-octane and ominous roller.
e-missions next release comes from australias tred, featuring four cosmic bangers entitled intrinsic field ep with a breakbeat remix from safer at night co-founder lawrence lee. based in berlin, tred aka ed treleavens debut release on e-missions follows label founders p.leone and caiazzo. intrinsic field ep captures his love of hardware instruments and propels the listener into a world of ratcheting drums, celestial pads and acid bass lines. fuelled by a fascination with science fiction and a penchant for straight-up electro, tred brings a refreshing take on the genre and a unique approach to retro futurism.

new york s p. leone is back with the second release on his newly launched e-missions imprint featuring work them records founder spencer parker on remix duties. born and raised in brooklyn, where he discovered the legendary storm rave parties run by frankie bones and adam x, p. leone cut his teeth djing in the lower east side of manhattan before making techno himself. before long the producer dropped his first two releases on work them records, joining a roster spanning radio slave, spencer parker, young male, anetha and physical therapy. e-missions was then launched in early 2017, acting as a platform for co-founders p. leone and caiazzo with more exciting artists soon to be announced. discipline signals is dark and robust from start to finish, with functions of discipline 1 inaugurating the package with resonating kicks, trippy elements and industrial synths. functions of discipline 2 follows a similar aesthetic but heads into a deeper direction with its cavernous atmospherics and glitch inspired effects, making way for laced with its sinister drones and tantalising melodies. spencer parker then remixes laced , concluding matters with rugged drums, energetic hi-hats and a rumbling low-end.

this record tells the story of a detroit groove from the perspective of the speaker, taking you through time from luomo s to the hardware syst3m parties, and the first leaky warehouse roof no way back where dean syst3m worked the door, with all the disrespectful nature one would naturally expect from a true detroit groove. created by two veterans of detroit grooves, bmg & derek plaslaiko, who now calls berlin home, in bmgs studio in the center of detroit. this song celebrates some of the out there characters and crazy cowboy outlaws that made this detroit scene happen on the underground level, that made such an impact that is still felt around the world today.
celebrating even more of the diverse influences on erika s debut solo release, the critically acclaimed hexagon cloud 2xlp on interdimensional transmissions. donato dozzy, isreal vines, outer space (emeralds) & patrick russel delivering....tip!
while hexagon cloud may be erikas debut solo release, this is by no means her introduction to the scene. for years erika has been a member of ectomorph and co-conspirator of interdimensional transmissions, but since these projects play shadowy games with identity and perception, she may just need that introduction. limited edition, silk screen cover with foil sticker enclosed collectable! tip!

dracula lewis unterschreibt bei souterrain transmissions! aber wer zur hölle ist dracula lewis? der aus transsilvanien stammende produzent bleibt vor allem in der blogwelt ein mysterium, und das obwohl eben diese blogs seine tracks fleißig posten. angeblich lebte er bis vor kurzem noch in einem besetzten haus in mailand, wo er an diversen kunst-installationen getüftelt und einen illegalen club betreibt (oder betrieb). dracula lewis hat ein eigenes label, hundebiss records, heimat für bands der stunde wie hair police, sewn leather und jaws. mit den hundebiss-signings jaws und sewn leather tourte er bereits durch die usa und europa. nun kommen wir mal zur musik. dracula lewis beschreibt diese wie folgt: >expansive, pseudo-horror-flick music that oscillates between ethereal ambience and grinding, zombie-attack noise freakouts<. da ist immer diese seltsame, dunkle magie, die über seinen tracks schwebt. mit >permafrost< erscheint nun zunächst eine auf 500 stück limitierte 12 inch, ein studioalbum ist für märz 2013 geplant.

formed in san francisco in 2009 by wooden shijps guitarist ripley johnson and sanae yamada, moon duos first two critically acclaimed eps, killing time (2009) and escape (2010), fused the futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of suicide or silver apples with the heat-haze fuzz of american rock n roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder space rock.
Über die letzten jahre gelang es den the fresh & onlys sich in die herzen einer immer grösser werdenden schar von fans zu spielen. die fresh & onlys sind so eine richtige lieblingsband. es gibt eigentlich niemanden, der dem charme des sängers tim cohen und seiner mannen nicht verfällt. früher oder später kriegen sie sie alle. das who is who der amerikanischen underground labels (woodsist, in the red und captured track) rissen sich darum ihre platten zu veröffentlichen, auf dem all tomorrows parties festival sind sie sowas wie ein stammgast, und bands wie black lips und deerhunter haben ihre lieblingsband mit auf tour genommen. diesen herbst folgt ihr inzwischen viertes album, das endlich auch in europa erscheint, auf souterrain transmissions, der heimat von crocodiles, moon duo, zola jesus und coco rosie. >long slow dance< (oder auch l.s.d.) heisst das album. abermals geht es sehr romantisch zu und hittig, man fühlt sich an go-betweens erinnert und frühe (gute!) r.e.m., aber alles glücklicherweise nicht glatt sondern schrullig. es fällt da nicht leicht ein anderes label ausser pop im besten sinne zu verwenden!
