UNANSWERED QUESTION - DENSE AND PIKA REMIX (PIC DISC)
pic 12" Vinyl UK01.08.13
special edition pressing from the mighty drumcode. label boss adam beyer teams up with ida engberg for an epic workout in the shape of unanswered question, remix comes from the in demand dense and pika. pressed on limited edition ink blot style 2 tone coloured vinyl this is not to be missed!!
adam beyers original track starts with a heavy bass line that is a sure-fire, grooved out killer. the infectious vocal hook and melody line supplies the extra force to make this track one of the strongest releases on truesoul to this date. nic fanciullis take on take me away uses a rhythmic melodic synth-line before bringing in the vocal to maximum effect. alans darker approach gives this release an extra dimension, using deep-pounding toms to create a cool, stripped back vibe with warm stabs and hats to match.
chris is very happy that his long term friend adam beyer from sweden, who runs the drumcode and truesoul labels (as most of you may know), has contribute to the 10 year anniversary label compilation. chris said >he managed to give me an amazing track that i have already been playing up and down since probably the beginning of last summer<. you have to know that most of these tracks have been collected over a period of at least the last six months. this one from adam is called >antistius< not only is chris out for having international artists on this compilation but also his home base in frankfurt equally has some amazing artists to offer. this track on the b-side is by clr artist and mastering engineer brian sanhaji who has also recently released his album on the label. his contribution to 10 years of clr is pretty phat. this one is called >higgs< and chris had already been playing it, all over the place, with amazing responses.
this past summer pan-pot made a mark with their first release on mobilee in quite some time entitled >confronted<. for the confronted remixes we invited on board a couple of our favorite artists for their take on pan-pot. adam beyer and jesper dahlbäcks remix presents us with a harder version of the original that is even more driving, industrial and gargantuan that its predecessor. blurps of noise and static, air-clearing thunderclaps and extensive distortion make the epic nature of the original even more colossal. here the vocals of the original take the backseat and, when they do appear, they do so in a fragmented and distorted form. with intense atmospherics that demand your attention, beyer and dahlbäcks remix focuses exclusively on the darkest components of the original. martin landskys remix starts off at an easier pace than its a-side, exploring the softer side of >confronted<. whereas the a-side puts the original in overdrive, the b-side focusing on subtle changes while toning down the noise and static. the edge and rawness of the original is still maintained, but in a more melodic form that continually laces the backdrop.
SOMETHING GOOD TO DIE FOR / SHES GOT A CACTUS CROWN
12" Vinyl UK12.08.09
adam beyer returns to mad eye with a storming two tracker. keeping it deep and funky and a little bit druggy, beyer takes us on a swirling journey with eerie synths and dubby bass. this is definitely not a record just for a techno frat - you will definitely see cross over to the tech and deep house boys who yearn for something a little bit tougher in their sets. once again beyer can do no wrong as he cements himself as one of the biggest names in techno today. sickeningly good!
compared by adam beyer, truesoul is the ying to the yang of the techno tastemakers better-known drumcode label. equally well respected, equally forward thinking, both labels are at the forefront of modern electronic music. operating on a broad remit and refusing to be restricted by genre boundaries, truesoul offers an oasis for the great and good of techno where they can experiment with elements of other electronic styles. having previously hosted the experimental works of cari lekebusch, joel mull, nihad tule, par grindvik, speedy j and dustin zahn, adam beyer himself takes up the mantel for this latest excursion with two cuts constructed from a broader electronic palette
adam beyer retruns home to release on his own drumcode imprint with his first solo release on the label for a very long time!! this year will see adam release more of his own superb solo material across his 3 labels - this release being the first. the a side track - >london< is an epic building killer subjecting your senses to a 10 minute barrage with its clever builds and peaks. on the flip side >whos got the virus< is a nagging funky groover with its amazingly addictive bassline, vocal refrains and atmospherics
adam beyers drumcode label has had a hugely productive year with a stream of consistently good material. he has now raided the archives for this new 2 track killer on his truesoul imprint. here we have 2 tracks from adam himself with the a side pattern 5 being a large bass driven bomb with big drums, a catchy vocal refrain and superb complimentary pads
two key players of the scene join forces on figures sixteenth release. no one else than adam beyer and luke slater contribute tracks to this very special ep. mod by luke slaters planetary assault systems project takes off with a fast, breathless groove. its force drags the dancers along, and the mesmerizing bleeps put everybody in a deep trance. within seconds, the solid ground of the dancefloor is nothing but a remote memory. mod has a very special aura, it is hard to grasp its exceptional energy. it appears to be pretty elementary, and yet it is an verwhelming techno anthem which will accompany you for quite some time. adam beyers simulated usage surprises the crowd with its elegance and subtlety. forming an irresistible funk, the fabric of the track interweaves various tiny elements. this savageness obviously manifests in his musical approach which can be characterized by his open-mindedness in regard to diverse influences, currents and styles. simulated usage is strong and joyful, it is techno in its best sense. once again, adam beyer und luke slater manage to coin the face of contemporary club music.
