desolats loco dice joins the roster of martinez brothers cuttin headz label this april with slammer, backed with a remix from detroit techno veteran dj t-1000. dü,,sseldorfs loco dice has long been one of the most respected figures in contemporary electronic music with releases over the years on leading labels like cocoon, cadenza, ovum and of course his own desolat as well as a heavy touring schedule taking him across the globe year in year out. here though we see dice offering up his new single courtesy of cuttin’ headz, a platform the martinez brothers and associates to deliver high octane, dance floor focused house and techno. the original mix of title track slammer leads with spiralling brass like bass tones, flute licks, shuffled shakers and resonant synth hooks running alongside a bumpy bass line and an amalgamation of heady, processed vocal lines. following is detroits dj t-1000 stepping up on remix duties, stripping back the aesthetic of the original to lay focus on robust rhythms and various vocal refrains from the original whilst chugging bass and tension building atmospherics gradually unfold throughout.

new ep from detroit techno and graphics legend alan oldham.
following up the more experimental >johnny gambit 01: the prodigal son< graphic novel/soundtrack (pure18lp), alan d. oldham a.k.a. dj t-1000 gets back to basics with the >blaster ep<, phase two of the pure sonik records restart.
>blaster< kicks off the proceedings. a dirty, tracky, and bitcrushed statement of intent, >blaster< is a 130 bpm love letter to all the hard techno fans in germany and spain who have kept the faith and supported dj t-1000s international dates all these years, and the definitive statement that pure sonik records is back!
on the b-side, oldham goes electro with >i rock shit everyday<, a dark, dirty, detroit electro-groove inspired by one of his all-time favorite detroit electro acts, ultradyne. the ep closer, the lo-fi >machines<, is the sound of your laptop, tv, and coffee maker conspiring against you in dial-up modem code. what happens when your microwave starts thinking it can cook better than you? you better watch out...
hot on the heels of his album r.u.r on boysnoize, djedjotronic aka jérémy cottereau drops an icy 4 track electro cut for cpu. we knew we wanted to work with cottereau after hearing his and maelstrom s lost echoes project (see maelstrom s alph4 e.p. on cpu). there s a clear drexciyan influence here with plenty of dystopian drama but things are disrupted with the likes of tunnel serving up raw 4/4.
gabriella vergilov returns to the label s vinyl arm with a set of distinctive hardware techno reuminations to send shivers down your spine. termosfera strides in confidently with a grinding mechanical synth hook that subtly shifts around the 4/4 drum pattern like all the best wormhole techno should. siempre loco is a sparser affair that focuses on space and poise, using minimal ingredients for maximum effect. boring shit bucks against the suggestion of its title to fire off a set of rhythmical cycles that feel indebted to the vast outer reaches of space. detroit hero t-1000 runs with this idea and pings the track into a particularly funky star system somewhere very far away from planet earth.

we eroded pre-existent structures constructing an open heterotopic space, a horizontal and vertical thinking found its way through physical- and cyberspace, here, nothing manifested instantly - flippancy left space for any kind of interaction and appropriation. within (or well beyond) economic pressure points which diluted production, this was our opportunity to try out different potentials with no restrictions to the public, while simultaneously scrutinising the general framework of institutions and human behaviours. subversive potential always was variable, always asking, deconstructing and reconfiguring itself allowing new states of aggregation within diffuse interspaces and futures
