coloured 12" Vinyl NL20.04.18
a collaboration of seismic proportions, we present “the last renegade” from safire, dlr & drs, backed with two experimental dlr forays called “dreaming of a place”. sinister, brooding and shaped with intent, “the last renegade” sees safire & dlr combining to create a half time beast, with the piercing vocals of drs a perfect fit. developing the dreamland themes from his last album, dlr explores dub and techno influences and more downtempo vibes on two mixes of “dreaming of a place”. digressing from the more typical dispatch format, dlr, along with safire & drs, express their artistic freedom to display the depth in quality within the label today.

bret winans (aka cb-r & cb radio) produces music out of a studio in brooklyn. using a variety of gear that has been amassed over the past decade, hes experimented with house, italo, techno and more. 2014 saw the release of cb-rs inside existence, an ep of dub techno and ambient textures that launched the s/p/a imprint. hes also appeared on the 100% silk 2015 label comp, sunset silk, as cb radio with the more italo leaning pacific ocean blues. with each release were opened up to another side of the producers world. available on full color jacket lp by new york based visual artist and musician jay goitia.
resopal retrieves two more smoldering remix cuts on transparent vinyl. safe to say that both of them - the a side by heidelberg s casio casino (aka steffen neuert of bergheim 34 ) together with lopazz - and the stunning b-side by our marseille connection roar - are absolute stompers. what we have here are two finely crafted remix versions of the original that seduce the dance floor in totally different ways. both contain perfectly structured arrangements that creep up on you with the stealth of a ninja, making them a real pleasure to mix with. the heidelberg guys show a minimal disco hybrid version of the original. from the moment the bassline emerges from a dense thicket of white noise the pair make their intentions clear. with expertly-crafted sequences punctuated by dramatic crescendos and distinctive mood changes their re-work is a melting pot of styles and influences that somehow manage to coexist, creating a rich montage of sounds and textures. on the b - french duo roar deliver hallucinogenic, long, patient grooves followed by some fantastically understated sonic tweaking which gives the track a real kick without ever losing that empty, laid back vibe.
alles andrs sound and ideas speak loudly and quiet on this wonderful release, sharing another part of his journey and adding another essential piece to his discography and the resopal archive. now he connects melancholy with the necessary push to the dance floor. alles andrs continues to lay the foundation for his experimental combination of deep house and techno with a collection of two mind-bending pieces. -feel it- on the a side is a deep and warm melancholy track which will give you the chills while -tenebrae- fits into every modern dj set. designed as couloured and very limited splatter vinyl.
with soul, his first solo ep, alles andrs appears in a new, but not altogether unfamiliar light. the bavarian based producer sounds like an analog pop shepherd with clean fingernails, providing the needed feed for djs. here on his debut you will find three mind-blowing vocal house club bangers with over-modulated frequencies for the nightly sweat outbreak. this music is the easily-understood sonic language of alles andrs. he gives us space and depth, and the music is positioned somewhere within a sonic cosmos.
