ressort imprint’s fourth output “four cuts on hurting” gets a decent treatment from four well established remixers. pfirter, cassegrain, blind observatory and label head ekserd deliver their own takes - rsi011 therefore is aptly named “more cuts on hurting”.
filling the night with scars, the new release by our mainstay gł,ós marks the second installment on the ravage white series label. at the core of this release, gł,ós seems to build bridges between his ambient side on one hand and his thumping club music side on the other hand. especially the a-side covers the clubbier rhythmic vibe whilst the b-side conveys the more emotional vibe. like in the title track, he builds slowly and smoothly but he stays very precise in which acidic sounds come and fade. with this release, he finds a balance between the nostalgic anthem-like euphoria and a more darker and deeper narrative.
escapism, the berlin party series, steps over the threshold into label territory after putting on quality techno nights in the german capital for more than two and a half years. kicking off the label is the polish born and berlin-based glos, who is well known for his work on ressort imprint. on prayers three original tracks showcase his love for ambient music, as well as intelligent techno and sound design. belgian newcomer border one (wolfskuil, stockholm ltd) is in charge of remix duties, taking the slow churning groove of collapse and transforming it into dance floor focused material.
2015 brought the trilogy of the dancer to ressort. now the labels core artists each remix their tracks in circles. while all of them aim for the dancefloor, ressorts core artists could not sound more diverse. ekserd and border one aim for the raw, the groovy and the pure while array access and glos lose themselves more and more in sound design and dreaminess. since the many aspects of art and music form a cycle of ying and yang, each artist shows the other an interpretation of what he might have missed before. be it a complete stomper or a light absorbing epos, a deep and groovy house and techno hybrid or a journey into the depths of space every artist made one of the well known tracks released on previous eps his own. it is a very colourful package that bares every moment the label tried to cover in it s series before.
were drifting a little deeper and less dubby with our second release. glos is hailing from cologne but his origins are deeply rooted to berlin where he grew up. his sound tends to be extremely deep and atmospheric but still straight and danceable as he often proves his versatility.
intimate silence - a label with the philosophy to bring out music for the lonesome hours, the intimate moments and the wish for silence, healing the pain that other music is inflicting. the label s first release, filling the scars with light, comes from glos who is usually known for his techno outputs. in this 35 minutes piece he highlights his melancholic side in which he merely looses himself in long drafts about silence and intimacy.
having grown up with and on the internet, martin steer (1986) has transformed its pull into a concept album that is just as immediate and intangible as the digital world. bad stream is guitars and machines vanishing in the spaces between radiohead and nine inch nails only to reemerge amidst ambient, noise, and drone. bad stream, then, is his modus operandi - a hybrid soundtrack to the feelings of resignation, isolation, and cynicism within neoliberal cyberspace and to that strangely numbing comfort of bodies transmuting into zeros and ones in real time.
nice price deal !!! the glossy ninjas are back with another stealth mission: not your usual edits these guys take bits and pieces from known cuts and replant them in a different landscape. and while the super succesful first release sprinkled some modern us soul magic over deep house grooves they keep it firmly euro disco this time. for >payama< the glossy crew enlisted the competent help of germanys one-of-a-kind one man disco band and therefore it doesnt come as a surprise that its a prime example in dancefloor manipulation: layers and layers of swirling. frantic keys build up over a handclapping boogie beat, tightening more and more around your neck and when you have no other choice than to surrender to the groove those cheeky guys pull out a sample by the rather fishy, most successfull fake disco band ever. big fun!! the flip is not any less hilarious: a frenetic chop up disco slasher feast reminiscent of early daft punk and with so many surgical cuts that it could make a sushi chef envious. early support and plays from mock & toof, faze action, mark e., simbad and gilbert
grebenstein is a producer, dj and visual artist living in kassel, germany. after playing in several bands as a drummer and guitarist he made his solo-debut with a 4-track ep on the regis helmed label downwards records in november 2014. the gloss 4 track ep for horo comes after his downwards records follow up strong, proud, stupid, & superior with seefried was released in october 2016. title track gloss centres on percussive crescendos and pensive guitar layers, while self and its version stretch this effect out into a grinding, slow motion introspection. loss closes the ep with serrated drum machine blasts punctuating feedback contortions. the tension throughout the ep is palpable, with the shaping of the tension providing the substance of his signature style. non club tracks for open minded clubs.

gloss drop ist ein faszinierendes, hypnotisches album, das sich jeder kategorisierung & schneller analyse entzieht. der battles-sound vereint so unterschiedliche richtungen wie hardcore, tonaler minimalismus, neo-klassik, techno & post-rock. während dance-acts wie chemical brothers oder massive attack regelmäßig gastsänger einladen, sind battles der erste große rock-act, der dies tut. ihre gästeliste ist beeindruckend: der pionier des dunklen synthie-pops gary numan im muskulösen tribal-rhythmus, der chilenische techno-minimalist matias aguayo wird auf seine stimme reduziert, kult-indierockerin kazu makino (blonde redhead) mit zündendem dance-punk & yamantaka eye, messianischer dreadlocks-frontmann der japan-radikalkombo boredoms, betätigt sich als interstellarischer mc im schamanen-chant. es sind diese überschäumenden und unerwarteten momente, die battles von allen anderen zeitgenössischen bands unterscheiden

building on the mission statement that was ferdinger’s debut album “gelände”, comes “abbild”, a 4 track ep and the second release on his life in patterns label. the tempos are tweaked up and the sounds are honed and angled for maximum effect. “gegendämmerung” is straightforward but manages a lyrical tilt, while “spiegelreflex” oscillates between moments of dry precision and epic dreaminess. with “abglanz” the newly paris based producer brings things back to the geological strata that characterized “gelände” - but now with a rawer edge and more reflective surface. glos’ remix of “gegendämmerung” provides ambient and analogue textures, finishing the ep on a more introverted and melancholic note whilst maintaining the mechanistic drive of the other pieces.

fayze came of age in windsor, ontario, a diverse, gritty canadian city in the immediate shadow of detroit. during the 1980s, this fortunate geography placed the local scene in the inner orbit of the emergent detroit techno scene. from that starting point, fayze fell deeply in love with experimental, original sounds. today, his innovative, genre-defying soundscapes flirt occasionally with global schools like avant-pop and krautrock, but his sound is all his own. fayze s new music uses vintage analog synthesizers, which he s been collecting since the early 1990s, to build organic, textural compositions. an idiosyncratic collection of ambient, dreamy soundscapes, the album features inspired collaborations with detroit, windsor, and toronto artists. its myriad influences include aphex twin , stereolab , led zeppelin , and boards of canada . a well-travelled creative professional by day, fayze previously made music with marc houle and marshall sfalcin of king kool flipped . this is his first major solo project.

irrgang is the highly anticipated debut album of ossian ohlsson s vit fana project. representing a new generation of experimental musicians from scandinavia pushing the limits of contemporary industrial music, irrgang is the culmination of a process perfected over several years. while the comfortless drones, ear-piercing noise bursts and razor-sharp synth work may be the album s backbone, the signature trademark of earlier vit fana recordings is present in ohlsson s haunting vocals and the subtle hints of brutal beauty. a highly personal musical statement, irrgang stands with one foot firmly rooted in the tradition of early industrial noise music, while effectively creating a grotesque universe of its own.

marathons began innocently, as a quick debut ep by an energetic swedish duo we found on soundcloud. within a couple months of chatting with the pair, artur brä,,ndstrom and egil kahlbom, however, we realized our collaboration wasn t going to be simple, so cut and dry, so straightforward, and that s why we find ourselves here, a year after meeting them with a full album, not an in-and-out single, on our hands. what made it complex and intricate, you ask? why d we opt to squeeze eight originals into one long-player, you wonder? well, artur and egil are prolific dudes with fantastic ears and formidable work ethics. a couple of demos quickly sprouted offspring and became four, then six, then ten. rather than fight the arbitrary desire to trim the spread down to a 12inch, we figured we d aim higher and work on a proper album. what we constructed is, in a very classic sense, a long-player. here s that album! it s a sunny, loose, limber, uninhibited boogie through warm disco cuts and wobbly house jams and soulful funk slices. daytime chill-out with a nightclub architecture—or peak hour mayhem with a bright, clearheaded euphoria. marathons swings every which way and suits any mood, so drop that needle and try it on. then repeat, repeat, repeat.
and here we are with another mentalistic fantastic various , as all the rest of vinyl releases vinyl only release. no digital promo , no soundcloud , no previews nothing just the vinyl and its music as we believe that this is the only way to get exclusive tracks in this format. this time we selected carefully the tracks and artists where you can find bolumar known for his past releases in labels like amam or act natural among others the new comers mobile soul system and a digital bonus the 12 minute remix david delgado has done to label boss eddy romero that yes this one will be released in digital. so we are laying to you about vinyl only no the rest of the vinyl are exclusive vinyl tracks so you not going to find them no where except in this limited copies release.
