after 2 long years, michal wolski is back with his second release for international day off. from what we can hear, we re definitely sure that at least half of this time he wasn t leaving his studio. the music just sounds big, 4 fat tracks, including remix from gathaspar, is a heavy based techno stream, making every cardiovascular system pumping more blood. thanks to the fact that michal apart from production was responsible for mastering, we guarantee that this ep will generate the appropriate sound pressure from every speaker so be careful with the volume knob!
vinyl only, 180g, hypnotic minimal dyno groove jackers chypre will enter the world lightly yet clearly, like a fascinating myth or a vague fairy tale. it is a heaviness, a brightness, an indescribable elusiveness, a reluctant to disclose secrets. ideal chypre will fill you with more than just pure delight, and, although we cannot locate its source, we are certain that it comes from within you
british producer reformed society is on a steadfast mission to dig deeper by going against the grain, standing up to the status quo and daring to do something different. a self proclaimed goal that is easily noticeable in his first release for “made of concrete”, wherein he reveals three original tracks and a remix by gathaspar, one of the label’s regulars. kicking things off with “high tension”, a high strung stripped back piece with an aerial feel, the artist builds up the entire mood of the ep from scratch. a clear-cut, steady groove whose versatility makes it relevant as an intro, outro or interlude. gathaspar’s rausch remix is a sub-bassy reinterpretation of the initial piece, filled with contorted whirs and whizzes that give the track a sub- aquatic feel. on “volgende halte”, the opening vocal sample shifts from a seemingly conventional soundbite to a recurringly haunting snippet that remains etched into the listener’s brain. rhythmical rolling pads galvanize the groove, making for an eerie yet relaxed overall vibe. movement inducing from the get go, final offering “orbiting jupiter” centers around wavering bass leads, while playing on a blend of spacious synths and timbered percussion patterns.
up next on made of concrete is gathaspar with his gathsoland ep. with straight sounds and dark beats, gathaspar takes it down to the realm of shades. after the vocal heavy intro of gathsoland the subkick abducts you into areas of unknown soundscapes. through the stormy pads of the vision in cooperation with echologist the ep is brought down to a round figure by the combination of traditional elements of techno and modern interfaces in the last track the lover of ursa major.

VAPORIZER EP (LOWTEC / TOBIAS. REMIXES) (180G VINYL)
12" Vinyl, 180gr NL04.12.14
gathaspar has been making a name for himself based on his productions for labels like thema and freude am tanzen as well as his live sets (im not a dj) in some of berlins most respected spots like panorama bar and watergate. amam cant resist his detail-oriented grooves, either, so now were jumping in on the action, releasing the vaporizer ep.
gathaspar versteht es, große gefühle in die tiefen hinab gleiten zu lassen, ohne dabei die tanzenden gemüter aus den augen zu verlieren und mit etwas schräglage zu überraschen. die lauten gröler sackt er dabei nicht ein – gut so! dafür eine schar von seelen, die sich wahlweise mit geschlossenen augen seiner musik hingeben wollen. gathaspar understands that great feelings in the depths are allowed to glide without leaving the dancing-disposed. and with a slight incline as a surprise. the loud growls arent in the bag – just as it should be! however there is a sliver of soul, that wants the music to be captured with closed eyes
after ushering in a raft of releases from top talent over the last year that turned quite a few heads, we over here at thema thought it was time to assert our own opinions a bit more forcefully. we certainly appreciate all the support we garnered from the detroit drops courtesy of norm and terrence, and sliding over to the smallville end of the spectrum with rau and suburb certainly didnt lose the thread either. sometimes its easy to build a vibe on the backs of others rather than on simple merit though… with that in mind we have taken our own path since then, and the recent successes from beaner and laurine frost stand alone as the accolades keep rolling in. continuing on our outbound trajectory, we present the solo vinyl debut of gathaspar, the mysterious polish producer who has been making noise mostly in berlin and to the east.

erhältlich als cd und 2lp version, jeweils inkl. download code für 16 tracks! was mitte der neunziger, initiiert vom veranstalter-duo sperling & mauss, in jena als partyreihe unter dem namen -freude am tanzen- begann, hat sich längst zur bekanntesten plattform für elektronische musik an der saale mit bislang über sechzig veröffentlichungen, eigenem schwesterlabel (musik krause) und angeschlossener booking-agentur gemausert. mit 16 jahren auf dem noch immer jungen buckel ist freude am tanzen heute auf dem besten weg von der adoleszenz ins erwachsenendasein, doch dass dabei trotz gefestigter strukturen zum glück noch lange keine langeweile einzug halten muss, beweist nun die jubiläums-compilation six10 jahre freude am tanzen.
there will always be a bass drum making people dance, but it will rarely sound the same. techno and house are in continuous flux. there will always be people celebrating. and each year new kids join the scene, hungry for pleasure, for beauty, for ecstasy - for life.
