los angeles is a hot bed of underground techno and killer all night parties. at the center of all of this is the duo of acid circus (droid behavior), who control much of the movements sonically and at the events.the brothers >v< inspire this tora release with heavy influence from venetian snares (ie. see title).the main cut throbs with a hypnotic vocal chant and incredible bass. both a dj tool and dance magnet. >dark wave< continues this approach this time with chilling reverb attacks and more bass. label head dietrich schoenemann strips it back to almost a constant loop and still manages to sneak more bass in.
incl agaric (we are) remix !! the los angeles based duo acid circus present their second extended release on droid recordings. following the label s tradition of creating stripped down, new school, jacking techniques, the release primes dance floors with a taut beating. producers, performers, and party hypers, acid circus lead the nightlife dynamic and capture that vibe on the record. the dark minimalist, agaric, who is responsible for the label we are and for his demiurgic releases on drumcode and headroom, provides the reduxtion remix

formed somewhere in the 5th dimension, acid mondays is the cosmic coalition of fellow psychonauts negghead and lex wolf. brought together by their love for fat beats, inter dimensional travel & cups of tea, they are on a never-ending journey exploring inner and outer space. expect altered states of hallucinogenic house and reality bending techno. it would be a cliché to say they have a great future, but they’ve been there and beyond and have returned to the now to do it all again…
with *believe in love* yousef returns home to circus recordings with 3 cuts that have been turning heads all summer long. the title track features the legendary vocal of roy davis jr who once again, asks the world a poignant question. a rolling, infectious and gnarly groove develops and unfolds into a long and harmonic breakdown before a blistering crescendo. designed for the heads but with still enough action for the people that follow yousefs more musically trickier offerings.
just a beat is exactly that. yousef busts out a stripped back boogie bass over tight drums and oddball acid. no messing around, heads down, hands up. what is revolution is completely reworked by circus label mates acid mondays. remixing one of the stand out cuts from yousefs recent *a product of your environment* artist album, the mondays show how to bring authentic house music into the 21st century.
the long 45rpm side is a solid acid 140 bpm techno killer. b side starts with a 33rpm 138 bpm (45 boostable for a olschool acidcore effect - recommended). the records ends with a 140 bpm electro acid hard techno kicker.
for his debut on circus recordings maher teams up with fellow montreal man michael gracioppo aka casa. with a successful 8bit ep under his belt, plus a remix of homeworks >i m into this<, the canadian is a talent to keep an eye on. >malgra< sees the pair plunging deep under the jungle canopy. xylophone melody, drum rolls and dramatic breaks help create a unique atmosphere.
a bumper remix package is lead by kaiserdisco who bring their trademark funk with a weighty, warped baseline and euphoric break.
new zealands emerson todd follows us recent smash on saved with a smooth house workout. from the sleekness of that mix to the downright trip-tastic rework from new boys, acid mondays. these cats have been playing with those tree frogs again!

zusammen mit anderen vergleichbaren dj mix-serien wie der des londoner fabric-labels und -dj kicks- auf k7!, gehört das format der body language-compilations zu den letzten auf dem markt verbliebenen seiner art. junior boys, modeselektor, dixon, matthew dear, azari & iii, catz n dogz, dj hell, jesse rose und viele andere künstler trugen in den letzten neun jahren zum renommé der auf get physical erscheinenden erfolgsserie bei. die von dj t. schon in vielen seiner früheren werke angewendeten mixtechnischen tugenden stehen auch hier wieder im vordergrund. dj t. gibt sich nicht mit der vergänglichen momentaufnahme einer in sich abgeschotteten stilrichtung zufrieden. zeitlos, sich nicht bei formeln aktueller clubmusik anbiedernd und trotzdem voll im hier und jetzt verhaftet, präsentiert sich dieser aus 20 tracks bestehende 78-minütige mix.
