wir begrüßen ripperton unter seinem alter ego headless ghost zurück auf drumpoet community! der schweizer maestro kommt erneut mit einer grandiosen 6-track ep, die von techno-infizierten tracks (“abandon”) über emotionale midtempo stücke bis zu wunderbar arrangierten relaxten listening-nummern, ein rundes wohltemperiertes und hoch-muskalisches paket bietet. while the attention to detail might reveal a production career that spans two decades, the music itself oozes out an undeniable freshness and confirms that ripperton is as hungry as ever to express his talent. from the stripped-down grooves of „see you never“ to the tremendous techno-influenced „abandon“ via the emotional ride of „one day ok, one day not“ or the poignant „real smile fades“, this ep is an absolute delight for your ears, soul and feet!

mr. cubanix brings it down laid back and smooth on hott steppa and breakthrough. nice bassline and rhodes combinations keep the overall sound quite loungey and upscale. it is on gosando however, that things get cookin with its harder tribal drums and oh so dark latin pianos. if you like quentin harris, jon cutler, the soulfuric sound, and jask, then this might be your speed.
debut single breakthrough introduced the insanely catchy but deeply soulful blend of synths and groove, but here on the album that is explored to the fullest with longer breakdowns and more expansive, experimental solos. pocket 5 displays the, possibly unexpected, influences of broken beat and almost combative rhythm playing - particularly in the complex guitar and keys breakdown where koor and o keefe layer conflicting time signatures and battle to ride it out to the heavy drum return.
!! new koze !! seeing aliens unquestionably is a banger, its bass riff snaking around your body like a python, its high-drama strings, pianos and outbursts of noise designed for maximum crowd pressure release. but, again, it sounds like nothing else, and its dynamics and twists unfold over eight and a half minutes in ways that will mess with your head every time no matter how many times you hear it. the exclusive b-side track, nein könig nein (no king no!), meanwhile, is slightly gentler on the face of it: it’s less about sonic pressure, more about hip-shaking syncopation. but it too tells strange fairytales in its peculiar and brain-tweaking accumulation of detail, and though you’ll hear archetypal sounds from the heart of house and disco in it, every last one of them becomes new and otherworldly.
alexey volkov first appeared in the techno scene in 2011. his past releases on the semantica and jealous god labels have gained alexey and his music widespread acclaim. since his debut, alexey has been busy crafting and perfecting his sound. his origins in punk and industrial become apparent in his new ep for escapism. he continuously proves that his assertive yet refined style is worth the hype as unconventional rhythms and unsettling sounds dominate the tracks.
josé james is reborn as a powerful voice in contemporary r&b on “love in a time of madness”. even for an artist as creatively restless as james, “love in a time of madness” is something new: an r&b focused foray into moody soul, electronic pop, and trap-addled beats, with the occasional influence of african folk, american gospel and minneapolitan funk. and though james’ voice is no less agile and his ear no less adventurous, this is also his most relatable, daresay sexiest work yet, detailing love’s ups and downs without holding back an ounce of emotion.
contact field orchestra is produced by damon aaron. in 2008 he came across a box of 7inch tapes at an estate sale in altadena that turned out to be field recordings of a turn-of-the century orchestra of ex-miners recorded almost entirely with hand-made instruments and contact microphones. this became the source material for this collection of releases with hit+run.
