free soul 1969 the groove is heavy too ñ and a popular hip hop sample ñ but really itís all about klemmerís blisteringly intense, stream of consciousness freak-out. been sampled over 16x from ini to ed o g & da bulldogs to kurious, akinyele, dred scott to name a few. klemmer just wyles out on the sax keep that psychedelic funk moving!! side b. up above the rock edit 1968 you wonít find too many jazz songs that start with a drum break, but then this is probably one of the better jazz/soul hybrids iíve heard in some time. produced by richard evans this song is a perfect display of acoustic jazz funk with ron carter & grady tate filling out the rhythm section. dance floor classic!
when looking for music to be released on magazine, our guideline has always been energy. the key question remains the same: does the artist have something important to say? does it have a sense of urgency? alex played us these tracks while visiting the magazine studio in cologne earlier this year and we were consumed by unadulterated rage. this is anything but a conceptual release, alex has not released this kind of music before. a side of alex manifests itself through these techno tracks, that most might not have known before. brutal yet beautiful, furious yet fragile. a berlin native who shaped his sense for techno by striving through his hometown and its infamous raves, alex is now one of the prominent protagonists of that scene – not only when regularly playing at berghain. the ep harnesses this experience perfectly, fully preserving the energy of the creation process by recording directly to tape. most productions may have suffered from this primitive method of locking sound into position, but not these tracks from a techno master.
limited repress! dont sleep on this! vinyl only! two of the most talked about tracks from the white isle of ibiza this summer, played by the martinez brothers, jamie jones, luciano, marco carola and many more!!!

continuing its cosmic techno research path, subosc is happy to present the latest work from hydergine. known for his deep and dub influenced techno releases on labels such as phorma, modelisme, knotweed and ranges, he delivers two ambient influenced techno tracks with a mental and dancefloor attitude. driving grooves, pulsating synths and melancholic melodies are the main elements of the original tracks, which journey narrates about cosmic energies, self healing and mental stimulation.
the “omega point” is, at fact, a spiritual belief and a scientific speculation that everything in the universe is fated to spiral towards a final point of divine unification. “light from light” puts emphasis on the eternal and bright light of wisdom, which allows to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight. wisdom leads a person to overcome feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, anger or aggression by non-understanding of external elements and internal acknowledgement. the ep includes two immersive, dreamy, enlightening and spaced-out electro infused versions by artefakt (delsin / field records) and 2030 (construct re-form / clft).
already supported by svreca, etapp kyle, abstract division, quail, leghau, kessell, alfredo mazzilli, nihad tule, roberto clementi, shaded explorer, distant echoes, unbalance…
after his very successful remix of slip away on noir music we are extremely delighted to release this incredible ep from olivier. paris based giacomotto is no new name to the scene but he has hit a sweet spot on noir music with his recent productions and this postgalactic 4-tracker might be his best effort to date. all 4 tracks move in the same universe but show giacomotto from melodic to the more minimal sound. its been ages since weve heard such a solid effort from 1 artist and we have been all smiles here since giacomotto decided to shower noir music with his great productions.

berlin based, italian born, alessandro and federico fognini are not just brothers in arms but actual brothers who have been growing up together their whole lives. which might help explain why these 2 recent arrivals on the scene have already established a sound much more mature than their years might suggest.
