coming off transmission, death in vegas’s critically acclaimed 6th album which saw the band collaborating with sasha grey, are three unique remixes by silent servant and rudolf klorzeiger.
silent servant delivers two stunning mixes of you disco i freak. in his first remix he elevates the discordant melody in you disco i freak and adds a sense of menace with a new sequence, taking the track in a more sinister direction. with his second version, he takes the heat up a notch with a brutal workout synonymous with his signature abrasive sound.
night blind is richard fearless second release on drones white label series. the title track coalesced in the early hours of the morning as diffuse, turneresque lights glimmered across the thames and the container was pounded by a storm. unnerving and melancholic yet with a glimmer of light, this is fearless at his best. on the b side is cancan. with xaviers spiritual acid head, kenichi iwasa, on percussion duties, this is one for peak time body shaking. both tracks were recorded and mixed at the metal box by chris blakey and produced by richard fearless. stamped and numbered edition of 300 vinyl
drone pursues new resonant frequencies with itÆs twelfth release, a tonal, penetrating, and experimental album. vii was recorded by laying full takes of synthesisers and guitar feedback with repetitive melodies as a nod to the tradition of ragas. each song was written for a specific power centre in the body and to engage both active and passive effects of sustained and concentrated sound.
for the third release on decoder recordings, filip xavi makes his debut to the label. the serbian producer and resident dj of the drugstore club in belgrade delivers four superb techno tracks. all of them are characterized by an obscure sound but directly aimed at the dance floor. the first track wd-4d is a powerful opening of the ep, with its successor aw-fl keeping pace nicely. the b side of this ep can t be ignored, as the opening track he-ap kicks off quite fierce. the final composition named d-ui is an excellent hypnotic dj tool.
