castanea records returns with its seventh release, we are talking again about an lp this time signed by paradroid. the artist is the new entry in the label and returns after a long time with an album that draws a definitely microhouse sound which characterizes him being a pioneer of this genre. an old school sound unique and characteristic perhaps missing in the market since long. 8 tracks cared in minimum and the high quality details mixed and registered 100% in analog tape. this icing cannot miss in the disk bag of any connoisseur in gender or non. there will be a novelty even on artwork level, this time we have decided to adapt to release a beautiful gatefold rough collectible cover. vinyl only!
hotflush welcome lara wehbie aka blursome to the ranks with her debut ep “rendition of you”. raised in north carolina and currently residing in brooklyn, wehbie has come a long way since beginning to work on music in 2011 as a way of channeling her diagnosed depression and anxiety. she describes her work as a transitional darkness, something she says defined her sound even before she could manage the software she uses to make it. in her own words, “rendition of you ep signifies major transitions in my life over the past year and how my environment truly played a role in handling situations. it s a testament to how much happier i am now than i used to be. i still struggle but i m truly thankful for the influences i have around me that have made me a better individual and artist.” along the way she has attended the red bull music academy bass camp in 2015, and after an appearance on scuba s 2016 fabric mix, she debuts on the label with an experimental six track ep. side a of -rendition of you- introduces listeners to her experimental use of vocals and heavy percussive influences from the left field genre. side b dives straight into dance floor material with pounding kicks and and interjecting vocals, but then slowly winds down into a more melancholic ending with piercing synths rattling through to the last drop.
(paula temple, lee gamble, perc, minor science remixes) more than just a meeting of the minds remix collection, this set shows those minds in the process of melting together and re-forming as something unanticipated and evocative.
having already proven that he is capable of maintaining sonic quality and distinction over the course of a full original program, chevel (a.k.a. dario tronchin) now makes his lp debut for stroboscopic artefacts.

at a time when the weekly flow of new albums, eps and mixtapes come to exceed the number of e-mails that pile up in our inbox, the dazzle in lokoms new double single is like the long anticipated rainfall season in a tropical country: nothing protrudes yet everything is present. totally melodic and surprisingly quiet despite its fabulous rhythmic complexity, good news from mars soothes like a perfect conversation in a sea of things left unsaid. at the same time dry, blazing and melancholic, blurred vision recalls the brooklyn duo team shadetek in their early 2000 years, when the two were still hesitating between ambient warpish glitch and grime jolts. when combined, both tracks offer a vision inspired by the union in 2014 of electronica and experimental dance: an infinity of possibilities where hope still exists. download card inside.

for many the ultimate visionary and sonic wizard, mathew jonson delivers a rare solo album for crosstown rebels with her blurry pictures, encompassing a new evolution in his rhythmically complex and timeless approach over eight fluid and rich compositions.
300 x limited vinyl only release, hand stamped and numbered “it’s quite overpowering… no point in standing round” the first release from a new producer rarely sounds like this. swaggering through your speakers with a distinct lack of concern for weak hearts or brittle bones, the first record from blured is a focused combination of dirty funk and malignant, pig-iron bass.
>blurry< runs at 133bpm allowing it to sit neatly between dubstep tempo and the increasingly popular 125-130 bpm bass / house scene that has been developing in the uk over the last couple of years. taking things down an ongy-bongy path, this rhythm provides the soundtrack to a hunter chasing his prey through a humid jungle landscape, with fast weaving beats charged heavy by the deadly subs. the heat is on.
>spearhead< sees roska making a rare 140bpm trip, taking this rhythmical excursion neatly into dubstep tempo territory, creating an original cut which sits in its own world of tribal grime. the bassline pounds heavy, eventually rising upward before suddenly plummeting back down to the murky depths from where it came, and back round again. dis-hyeer quality dubstep music produced pon the other side of the looking glass.
grandioses album des italienischen techno-produzenten chevel (aka dario tronchin) auf dem berliner label stroboscopic artefacts. obwohl tronchin seinen klanglichen und atmosphärischen wergzeugkasten durchgehend konstant hält, gelingt ihm auf -blurse- eine sensationelle vielfalt an emotionen, wie man sie auch von seinen dj-sets in top-clubs wie dem berghain (berlin), fuse (brüssel) oder be cool (barcelona) kennt.
