the fourth release on anna walls label marks sunrom s debut. i am not inspired with the daylight he says. i prefer the night to the day. everything is peaceful and people are asleep. it gives me a feeling to be alone, especially when its really late. it is perhaps the peaceful surroundings of saint-german-en-laye in france, where romain nouhi aka sunrom resides that has encouraged his creative wandering. the city is a quiet place not far from paris, with a beautiful chateau and forest surroundings. the ep kicks off with spirale delightfully uplifting and playful, weaving colourful melodies intricately together. pray takes a more pensive and wistful turn. on the flip copenhagens paxton fettel has remixed superfly full of feel-good piano riffs. the final cut is dj normal 4s version of u doing, a dreamy breaks number that wouldnt sound out of place in the golden era of uk rave. i have a passion for stars and the cosmos, discovering new sounds is like discovering new stars- sunrom.
founding member and co-creator of ‘aiwo rec.‘ dj normal 4 delivers second circle’s eleventh release to date with the ep ‘exoticz’ . . raised close to düsseldorf in the ruhr area, normal 4 grew up amongst a landscape of dusty factory skeletons and abandoned machine complexes in a formerly thriving industrial conglomerate. bringing his signature sound of broken industrial dreams mixed with escapist rave fantasies, normal 4 delves into the archives with two tracks ‘kalaidoka’ and ‘aeo’ recorded around 2011/2012, alongside a new track ‘la arabia’. produced at altstadt studio mülheim an der ruhr, with normal 4’s good friend anke preuß on guitar and vocals, ‘aeo’ is given the remix treatment by phillip otterbach on the ‘aeo (ottertasia mix)’. on the b side the synth freak out ‘kalaidoka’ is followed by ‘la arabia’ which rides the breaks into a dusty moonlit desert rave.
the man known as persian follows his own path. house. techno. garage. breaks. jungle. digidub. dubplates. here two cult classics come together as a ‘showcase’ of riley’s talent. a song for the end of times, we should shout faces down the corrupt systems of today. true thoughts. real garage. ambient house makes a welcome return with detroit special, mr fit siegel. an ode to dive deep down and beyond. green fields. dew. sound system. bass. freedom. morning sun. persian can’t be defined. a chameleon. links beyond history if you will. normal 4 represents the nu-old-skool. where were you in ’92? feed the mystery.
dusseldorfian dj normal 4 steps up to the plate and knocks it out the park with 4 tracks of breaky madness. influenced by the past but by no means a cliche, the vivid ep is both homage and statement...catch it before its gone

in 2017, benedikt frey released his breathtaking debut album with the esp institute, artificial, and now as we finally come up for air, we’re more than proud to offer an eclectic collection of remixes that’s nothing short of essential. side a leads with h for hysteria remixed by a beloved hero, nicolas chaix a.k.a. i:cube, one of the most prolific and respected electronic artists paris has to offer. his touch is considered and elegant, imbuing the track with a tasteful 303+808 backbone to support an array of patiently floating melodies and angelic vocal samples. following this, tolouse low trax of dü,,,,,sseldorf’s infamous salon des amateurs remixes the same track, stripping instrumentation down to a skeletal palette of bass guitar and stabbing percussive punctuations, chopped up inna minimalist stylee that has become his beat-making signature. side b leads with a remix by another dü,,,,,sseldorfer, dj normal 4, whose re-imagination of private crimes takes us for an even more menacing ride, half-timing the tempo and skillfully rolling out a barrage of jungle snares from rave days of yore. closing the release is the most aggressive remix of them all, a bonafide techno beatdown of the same track by dalo, the co-producing artist to whose haunting vocals lace the original version. her dark vision opens with sparse industrial drums that blossom into a driving assault of raw machinery, definitely not for the faint-of-heart. an all-around solid release here, fun for all the family... more than just the tip!

repress 2017 - travelling both space and time with his constructions, alphonse rozel makes a welcome return on emotional especial after the same for me ep released last year. the incisive hit of the disco beat on -smokey- is hard to ignore, while the booming toms and african chant lines feed into a perfect slice of dancefloor dynamite from an unspecified era. meanwhile the pilotwings take to the track with glee, whipping out some crisp breaks to drop over the proceedings in a pleasingly early 90s manner. -glint am- is quite the foil to the a side, leaning on some uplifting synth chords to provide the magic around the crafty drum programming!
die neue fabric-ausgabe kommt von roman flügel, einem seit über 20 jahren elementaren mitglied der frankfurter elektronic-szene, der unter aliases wie alter ego, acid jesus oder sensorama auf labels wie playhouse, ongaku, klang elektronik, cocoon oder dial (club-)musikgeschichte geschrieben hat. und auch sein fabric-mix ist geprägt durch seinen langjährigen, charakteristischen stil: abstrakt, idiosynkratisch und dicht, dabei aber immer warm und einladend.
