ilo caused quite a frenzy with his edit of new musiks warp. a uk record reviewer joked *we can only hope an ilo edit of grauzones eisbaer is next!* so he does it! this ultra limited pressing also includes the wonderful love of my own. prepare for the craziness! one sided, hand stamped white label!
the first world unknown 12 inch kicks off with a slamming piece of prototype house from glasgows naum gabo aka jonnie wilkes from optimo and his production partner james savage. showing that a relatively low pace doesnt mean any drop in energy levels and dancefloor pump power, whop! cracks along like something from an alternate reality version of 1980s chicago. its as easy to imagine it rocking the house at medusas or the box as it is to envision it in the present day soundtracking some kind of bizarro fetish party or a particularly intense session at berghains lab-oratory. this is jacking in the true sense of the word. on the flip side italian born berlin resident franz underwear ups the tempo with a stunning piece of slamming european musclebeat. shades of ibiza 88-89 pervade here, the kind of pumping, chunky synth action, teutonic vocal exhortations and vaguely menacing but ultimately benign vibe that sent thousands of potty european kids totally round the bend and changed the world of dance music forever.
atas volume of the >life at robert johnson< mix-cd series wouldnt be complete with out a 12-inch. here you get two of the most extraordinary songs and mysterious corkers of his outstanding compilation. ramonaäs main man picked grauzone with >raum< and zwischenfalls >flucht< for this special plate. as this wouldnt be a treat in itself already, ata extended the pop arrangement of >raum< into an almost 8 minute long powerful ballroom blitz edit for all you new wavers and old romantics. always remember: the future was already yesterday, but the good times are always now
exzellenter fabric-mix von ryan hunn (aka illum sphere), der auf ninja tune und yound turks veröffentlicht, radiohead und martyn remixt, und seine manchesteraner clubnacht hoya jeder quartal mitterweile auch im londoner fabric-club begeht. illum sphere liefert exakt die breite palette an düster-elektronischen clubsounds links von der mitte, für die er und seine nächte berüchtigt sind. -illum sphere bewegt sich spielend zwischen sci-fi-hiphop-beats á la brainfeeder, geister-garagen von burial und dem unterwasser-techno von drexciya.
digitalism has lovingly created a mix for !k7s legendary dj-kicks series. for these two young germans, jens moelle and ismail tüfekci, joining the ranks of contributors to the series was nothing short of a dream come true. twelve years ago, the duo met as two record store workers in hamburg, admiringly selling the dj-kicks series to their customers, and appreciating the dexterity of the mixes and range of artists who assembled each mix. their favourite contributions include tigas mix (his mix was the essence of edgy and cold electro-techno.), the playgroup mix (more really playful stuff.) and erlend oyes mix (cause he sung over a lot of stuff and had some favorites like jürgen paape and the collaboration with morgan geist.
