2019 repress - this year kevin saunderson, ann saunderson and paris grey, collectively known as the legendary band inner city, release >future<, their first entirely new material since parting company in 2001, written and produced in collaboration with another detroit legend, namely kenny larkin. the track marks a welcome return for a group that combined the tough, futuristic grooves of the detroit scene with the vocal energy of r&b and gospel and helped to define the period in which house and techno moved from underground phenomena to top 10 material, paving the way for hundreds of dance hits to come. >future< is devastatingly catchy and highly emotional, exhibiting all the soulful flavours and qualities you would expect from these celebrated producers and singers. masterfully re-edited by carl craig this track ascends to a higher place whilst kenny larkin is on remix duties, beautifully reworking the original into a techno infused monster with intoxicating staccato vocals.
with the build up to the highly anticipated debut album for both ruede hagelstein and watergate records nearing its release date, we have put together an advanced release of the original ruede track soul dynamic including some stunning remixes to get you ready.

la fleur is a dj in the ascendant. now a resident dj at watergate in berlin (and with a brand new ep for their label ready to drop - more on that in minute!) she has balanced her craft and her electronic music production with precision and flair: all of this is the result of hard work and a constant stream of quality gigs across the world. for the uninitiated, la fleur took her first forays into the studio in 2008, with her remix of david ekenbaecks nairu on trunkfunk records but it was her solo debut, the flowerhead ep, for her own power plant label, which really rocketed her into charts and record boxes worldwide.

if we ever called it a classic…this is what we meant . after releasing one of the best artist album of the last years on carl craigs planet e label, kenny larkin joins now forces with one of the most influential artists of the recent times shlomi aber, and his acclaimed label be as one imprint. shlomi aber and legendary detroit pioneer kenny larkin are two artists that needs no introduction to the techno crowds. while the first one is recognized as one of the most forward thinking artists of the recent years, the other one is responsible for releasing some of the finest pieces of electronic music ever produced. sketches ep comes with 2 different versions of the same track, both having old school vibes reminiscent of the days when house and techno went hands in hands. kennys version is a superbly produced slice of techno, with an amazing drums progression in a typical larkin style sustaining a hypnotic lead pattern, all conjuring together to take the dancefloor into a 10 minutes long, deep and mind tripping tour. label boss shlomi aber, takes a different approach by putting out a tougher version, a loopy phat bassline and a jazzy rhythm with snare hits makes this tune a funkier techno shuffle a pure classic to come, already supported by basically everyone, from the detroit old school guys to the recent house and techno leaders

sampler #3 from the global communication back in the box compilation album, the techno and ambient retrospective selected by tom middleton and mark pritchard, back together again after a 15 year hiatus. opening up this seriously hot four track ep is an ultra rare and often overlooked carl craig remix of yennek, aka kenny larkin. two detroit pioneers collide on this beauty, with delicate oscillating keys gliding over a heavyweight breakbeat and clattering hats, a signature style of carl s. the track really kicks in with the bassline and monumental pitch bending synth stabs. a real must have for anyone with a love for the original detroit sound

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.
zip ist nicht nur eine der umtriebigsten persönlichkeiten der hiesigen house/techno-szene, sondern auch eines ihrer größten rätsel. er scheut das rampenlicht, ist aber in allen bereichen elektronischer clubmusik allgegenwärtig: als dj (mit residenzen in der berliner panorama bar und im offenbacher robert johnson), als erfolgreicher labelbetreiber (perlon, mit dem hauptact ricardo villalobos) und als produzent (dimbiman). zip hat es sich nicht nehmen lassen, der einladung der legendären fabric-serie folgend, eine eigene ausgabe abzuliefern, bei der er auf nonkonformistische art und weise techno-takte aufbricht und sie in warme deep-house-grooves überführt. das ergebnis ist so einzigartig wie schillernd und mit sicherheit eine weiterer meilenstein dieser kultigen ausnahmeserie.
limited nice price action !!! a mere 9 years old, watergate has steadfastly become one of the worlds most prominent electronic music institutions. this is due in no small part to its heady combination of picturesque location - its dancefloors face directly out onto the river spree - a wall-to-wall led light installation and its impeccable music policy, with the cream of the electronic crop passing through its doors every week. the mix cd series, now in its tenth incarnation,is a further means for the club to stamp its seal onto the scene, with many of the clubs residents and regular talents having been invited to contribute.
john peel nannte ihn den baron des techno, der kompromisslose, anarchische punkstyle seiner techno und electro-produktionen und -mixsets ist berüchtigt: dave clarke schnappt sich 17 upfront-tunes, oft noch unbekannte, neue releases, und kreiert ein überwältigendes set aus gothic-darkem, bassgetriebenem techno und real electro, dass dem hörer die knie schlottern. um dann zum ende hin dunkles hinterland zu betreten, eine grauzone, in der techno und electro auf electronica treffen, wenn clatterbox (mit exklusivem track!), w1b0 und baz reznik einen makabren todestanz mit sich immer stärker verlangsamenden beats und atmosphärischer emotion aufführen.
