a year from its inception, artesian sounds proudly presents ars002: a debut ep from emre can swim introducing his unique brand of dubby, atmospheric low-bpm house music.
envisioned as a visit to a distant island, the ep opens with ‘another shake’, greeting you as you come ashore with a warm and tranquil mood. with ‘golfclap’, you venture deeper into the mainland, the rainforest thickens and tribal dance ensues. flip the record and things wind back down with hazy after-hours groover ‘slide in deep’. finally, aleksandir makes it a family affair and joins the expedition with a remix, packed with juno melodies and and rhodes-tinged broken beats.
harrison bdp steps up for the inaugural release from artesian sounds kicking things off with one of harrison’s most anticipated tracks to date. “it’s foggy outside” has been rescued from the confines of the world wide web remastered and revamped to finally get its first taste of wax. foggy had everyone grooving from the get go and now will hit harder and deeper every time.
the flip sees harrison showing off his knack for the garage shuffle and straight-up, no fuss, late night bangers. roberto s wraps things up providing his own playful rendition of the a-side track, building on those blissful chords with crystal clear arps and a bounding rhythm. a perfect summer’s day encapsulated...
side a. artesia feat. action bronson / side aa. getaway car feat. alchemist / having cut his teeth in ciphers in and around the san francisco bay area, alexander spit relocated to los angeles 2 years ago to hone his craft, and over the course of the subsequent 2 mix-tapes and aninstrumental masterpiece (this summer’s mansions), he’s now offering a distillation of his craft in his debut commercial album for decon,completely self-produced and awash in head-spinning, hallucinatory subject matter and aural stimulants. with a carefully groomed track listfeaturing only a few choice mcs and members of his immediate clique, the lp is a focused effort, a fully realized, vibrant vision that immersesthe listener in the alternately sun soaked and nocturnal lifestyle of a casual drug user and a very serious musician. this 7” packs two of the biggest tracks on the album into a limited edition package

input fuer den kopf und output fuer die beine. so war bosses vorstellung von -wartesaal-. genau das funktioniert auf seiner neuen platte auch. natuerlich ist es kein dance-album, trotzdem bewegt man sich bei den meistens songs automatisch mit. bestes beispiel dafuer ist -roboterbeine-. auch die anderen elf tracks sind genau das, was bosse ausmacht: ehrliche geschichten, die beruehren, ohne kitschig oder langweilig zu sein. das beweist auch seine erste single -weit weg-. da singt bosse vom -mal raus kommen- und -den kopf frei kriegen-, damit man sich wieder auf die wirklich wichtigen dinge konzentrieren kann. auf -wartesaal- haelt bosse an, um seine erlebnisse zu reflektieren. so gibt es melancholische lieder wie -yipi- oder -wartesaal-. aber auch ueberschwaengliche nummern, zum beispiel -du federst-. rausgekommen ist ein album, das die schoenheit des lebens in allen facetten zeigt und einen bosse, der reifer geworden ist, ohne seine musikalische staerke einzubueßen.

lp with digital download card. selected by sky girl co-conspirer julien dechery, le raccourci culls 15 tracks from ganderas extensive cassette discography, discarded dat recordings, and split cd with lyon toy music project klimperei. while ganderas nostalgic melodies incidentally parallel with the piano key manoeuvres of pascal comelade, robert haigh and dominique lawalrée, le raccourci could only stem from the escapist desires of one eric morin.

kicking off the dkmntl ufo series is esoteric techno stalwart peter van hoesen. the berlin based belgian dj and producer has attracted a dedicated following for his signature sound of ebm-tinged productions, and will continue to do so thanks to his distinctive take on how to inaugurate our new platform. from dystopian kinetic techno (‘cartesian taiko’) to an anarchic and dub heavy break beat jam (‘duet dub’), and from the rolling and hypnotic peak-time intensifier (‘p2me’) to synth-heavy seductive high tech soul (‘qaudra’): van hoesen casually wallops you round the back of the head with gargantuan bass vibes. dekmantel is adding a new series to their label called ufo. following the same-titled stage on the annual summer festival in amsterdam, the ufo releases focus on the same sound spectrum. in the forthcoming months, starting in may, ufo will be inaugurated by marcel dettmann, randomer, dj stingray, peter van hoesen, and voiski.
following the release of jonas kopp s capturing debut album and the recent transllusion and drexciya re-issues, the berlin powerhouse starts the year with a bang. tresor records is proud to introduce the debut collaboration between all-time reference dj deep, and emerging artist roman poncet, with two powerful 12-s released back-to-back, exploring both modern and classic interpretations of techno. dj deep, uncovered by laurent garnier in the early ‘90s, has always rested on the cusp of modernity, whether in the realm of house or techno, relentlessly delivering visionary selections throughout. as label owner of deeply rooted, dj deep seeks out likeminded artists, including poncet, to propel his vision of contemporary sounds. roman poncet, surfaced in 2013 with a growing catalog on labels as deeply rooted, taapion or figure. the blend of the two producers is simply incendiary and their profound compatibility takes all its sense on these two eps.
new label project by waxjam named musical metaphor, run by the young italian producer luca ballerini. deep seductive techno tracks without being too polished and getting moody. tracks that keep their raw edge and have a little hypnotic feel and charming extra touch by the use of warm analog sounds. the b-side comes with a stunning alex picone remix! italian seems a great breeding ground for new techno producers! check
