vinyl only, both tracks by sascha dive on minimood016 are destined to transfix those who like richly immersive dub techno. mind melting opener vibrating sphere has wooden hits and drum loops that rock back on themselves to keep on pulling you in. spoken word rastafarian vocals add dubauthenticity and gentle sprinkles of toms add drive to the chords. deliciously deepthroughout, yet grooving irresistibly, this cut achieves a lot from a little. on the flip-side, the perfectly crafted gravity is a smooth rolling track with classic dubchords that echo to infinity. well-treated vocals melt into the mix and the whole thing quickly casts its spell on you and keeps you there for the hugely absorbing and atmospheric duration

** ltd vinyl only **, underground electronic music label minimood celebrates ten years of existence with a special double 12 inch vinyl only release, presenting finest dub infusions by luke hess & sascha dive, delano smith, steve o sullivan, and tobias.
minimood welcomes copenhagen based master duo merv for two tantalising new tracks, and thus continues the reductionist dub techno stance the label has been advocating lately. after 2 decades of silence, this new ep marks merv s first new material and suggests that they have lost none of their magic touch. blank i is nine minutes of expert and exquisite dub techno. the kicks ping with an infectious thump, the dub chords are fantastically crisp and well crafted as they float in space and swallow up the drums. widescreen and edgeless, warm dubby techno. blank ii is a equally stripped-back and elegant dub techno affair as blank i, yet with a more upright and direct twist. slapping hits and lively chords are riding above the rolling, loopy drums. a ride that will guide through the deepest nights. vinyl only!
minimood continues with a deep piece of heady minimal from esteem german producer sascha dive with a mesmerizing remix by celebrated dutch producer ion ludwig. the after the storm ep is released on vinyl only. after the storm is ten sumptuous minutes of moody and atmospheric deep minimal house with warbling synths, meandering drums and spooky, spaced out atmospheres. the drums roll on free from any friction and the pads are delicate, elegant affairs that circle round you and leave you hanging in a wide open space. vocals sounds like those from a spaceship s pa and lend the whole thing a sense that you are voyaging through the galaxies. it is a truly burrowing track that gets right into your mind, body and soul. ion ludwig s remix is quicker and more synthetic, with waify pads, gently breaking waves and fizzing little modular synth lines that are crisp and rhythmic and will fit perfectly into a set by the likes of ricardo villalobos. this is classy and subtle music that is stripped back and slow burning yet has a huge impact.
DETOURS EP (REMIXES FROM OCH, VOLT.MAR) VINYL ONLY
coloured 12" Vinyl D08.11.13
the cultured minimood extra label introduces london based newcomer tcherneyan with remixes from the mighty och and minimoods own volt.mar on green colour vinyl. the a1 is provided by och, producer of the legendary whalesong, and consists of icy hi-hat ringlets and rippling dub techno chords, which merge into a slice of prime time excellence. next a2 mauvais présage is a deep techno track built around a dumpy kick drum that gets slowly embellished with skating and skirting percussion and distant groaning chords that sound like sad monsters. the b side opens with tcherneyans second original b1 vision, an eerie, vast and empty open space of chilly synths and echoing voices. finally, volt.mar on b2 then reworks mauvais présage into something that lurks with menace in some desolate industrial park where intriguing synth lines weave their own path and white noise blasts occasionally jolt you from your trance. much like the previous release, minimmood have struck stripped back, deep and dubby techno gold with this latest ep. vinyl only / no repress!
