as well as being a resident at moscow s denis simachev bar, leonid lipelis has been slowly making a name for himself as a producer for some time. there s a whole raft of lipelis remixes for the nu-disco set dating back to 2006, but it feels like the russian producer has stepped up his game of late. inbetween some killer edits for lies and an upcoming public possession 12- as tmo, lipelis dons his beard in dust guise for the latest release from the mysterious bahnsteig 23 label. if you were a fan of that aforementioned lies release or any previous bah 12 its highly likely you will dig the four cuts here with lipelis drawing for some obscure sources with eminently danceable results.
from the tropics comes whiskey disco, a sneaky re-edit label bent on dredging the decanter for diffident dancefloor genius from latent disco perpetrators. its loosely connected to sleazy mcqueen and his assorted cohorts. whiskey disco #18, cut me gently by beard in dust comes from behind the iron curtain. on a recent tour of russia, sleazy mcqueen had the fortune of meeting a friendly moscovite with an excellent selection of re-edits gathering dust on the hard drive. from the stab- centric *it shouldnt work, but it does* re-edit of grapevine to the cosmic groover, revolution in morder, the straight up boogie of highest mountain and the laidback ease of cant get enough-- more than most, this really does offer something for all (groovy) dancefloors.
during kris baha s migration north, an introduction with berlin cult figure dane//close has led to power station s latest offering and debut mini lp the miniature industrial complex. originally released on limited cassette via noisekolln tapes, the lp brilliantly displays the sameheads resident s appetite for all things wave, industrial and weird, with an eye firmly to the floor. opener rockbox plays like a forgotten b-side dub, 80s drums chug as brazen noises bounce off a delicately nostalgic lead. fourth voice slings low, incessant bass drones as sci-fi vox and metallic hits to the rhein. mercy mercy increases the tempo, an arpeggio leads the way as intensity rises, unnerving samples introduce a flurry of gunshot snares. flip over to ancient rome , a dancefloor musica lirica complete with a forward baseline, air raid sirens and raw drum workouts, the fall of the roman empire! not part of the original cassette release, beard maintains the energy, wild guitar shreds in a neurotic ritmo frenzy alan vega crossing into 2016 dance floors faintly comes to mind. and lastly rounding out with fine experimental ender thunder ...mayday
