as half of teengirl fantasy, logan takahashi is best known for making glassy, expansive tracks. on his debut solo album nogeo, however, he creates an intimate world of fertile, furtive rhythms. throughout the album, techno-tinged patterns unfurl with zeal and digital melodies slowly rise and fall. if the music of teengirl evokes widescreen, technicolor club scenes, nogeo is a zoomed-in study of timbre, rhythm, and melody.
the vinyl release includes a download code.
die köpfe hinter dem aufregenden, neuen electro-projekt polynation sind die beiden in amsterdam beheimateten musiker stijn hosman und hessel stuut. deren markenzeichen: trommeln und analoge bässe mit techno, ambient und weltmusik zu einem stimmungsvoll-mitreißenden ganzen zu verschmelzen. und das am liebsten live auf der bühne. doch obwohl polynation vorrangig als live-act gedacht ist, haben sich die beiden niederländer nun zur veröffentlichung einer 12 inch entschlossen. die debüt-ep *allogamiy* fasst sechs energetische tracks, welche die ganze bandbreite des duos widerspiegeln. während *damp* mit einem fetten bass sanft durch downtempo-gefilde tuckert, ist *why you pt ii* genau der track, der den dancefloor auf dem höhepunkt der nacht zum Überkochen bringt.

few artists can boast the same creative scope as legion & logam. owning a back catalogue of melodic rollers which exemplify their lasting impression, the trio s technicality often goes unrivalled. it s unsurprising then, that program stepped up and showcased this exciting and pivotal release. for anyone unaware of their masterful production style, the artists have introduced themselves in two halves. and both tracks are delicately woven, sonic blasts to the aural senses.

adam beyer imprint. a stunning two tracker by agaric and steve logan. the a side is a fantastic chugging track with razor sharp production that just builds and builds with key elements like swirling vocals and synths and a funky bassline. the flip takes a much darker approach with its reverse bass line, synth pattern and super sharp hi hats. this is another fanatastic release from one of the hottest labels around at the moment

initial listens to inre rymden (swedish for inner space) reveal it to be a curious combination of slow-motion house music and salubrious new age funk. in this case, first impressions are accurate, and they should intrigue you enough to dive deeper into the paradisiacal vistas tommy awards paint here. the opening track prometheus introduces that feeling of sundown deliquescence that very few musicians can summon, as it locks into a laid-back groove that induces utmost serenity, buoyed by sublimely mellow guitar vibes that should make fans of manuel göttsching s ashra and phil manzanera s solo output spring to attention. draget conjures the sort of exquisite elegance and preternatural chill last heard on roxy musics 1982 lp avalon but somehow its even more blissed out than that boudoir classic. and so it goes for most of inre rymden: among the six tracks, only rexy hints at tension, courtesy of a bass line that sounds like it should score a prisoners walk to the electric chair. but thats tempered by guitar sighs of radiant melancholy, not unlike those lofted by popol vuh s daniel fichelscher. even when inre rymden gets relatively uptempo, as on hans logan, it still glides like gilded, glazed, balearic house jams, urged on by subliminal bongos and dappled with pastel guitar shimmers far off on the horizon. music is love and love is our music, runs tommy awards slogan (a sentiment beautifully echoed by david crosby on his revered 1971 album if i could only remember my name), but one could also argue that it is medicine a balmy ear massage that spreads healing frissons to all areas of your body and mind. tommy awards continue their miraculous act as scandinavians channeling the tropics with stunning audio verisimilitude.

hot on the heels of inre rydmen, the ep that the swedish multi-instrumentalist group tommy awards released via origin peoples in mid-june, come the remixes. drafting in a cohort of the very best, this impending release will see the likes of jonny nash, coyote and mystic jungle tribe jump on the remix duties, touching original productions with their unmistakable idiosyncrasies. bartosz kruczynski, the polish producer better known under his earth trax guise, is another name credited on the release, offering up a 15-minute epic as he reinterprets penultimate track, hans logan. also to see an appearance on this ep is the romanian eirwud mudwasser, offering up a rendition of the track ‘mike sierra foxtrot’ reworked in a similar esoteric expanse, albeit it quite a bit more lucid. oscillating electronics mesmerise and an arpeggiating synth melody gradually make way for marimbas. sweeping, elongated strums of guitar stretch out like the horizon and the dialogue between various melodic elements continues throughout as we bear witness to various transformations. irregardless of pacing, the meditative quality remaining consistent throughout each glorious edit.

after five well-respected digital releases with the likes of frazer campbell and iuly.b, munster/berlin based onegroove records drops its first vinyl release with 3 friendly minimal groovers. very playful rimshot madness by iuly.b on side a, floegel and retza keeping it dubby on the flipside.
opening up with the deep space atmospherics of quiet life the album immediately transports you to another world. the title track is then a melodically lush and uplifting affair with curious synth patterns ebbing and flowing beneath crisp percussion. tracks like we search for answers combine organic, wooden textures with more synthetic and trippy synth sounds that are as far away from your standard sample packs as can be imagined. across the course of the album there are dark, moody and emotive pieces like worship (previously released in extended form on the mdl02 single) featuring qzen who reads a poem by patience agbabi in tantalising fashion as well as heavyweight, dubbed out techno groovers like shadow theory. make it true (of which seth troxler will be releasing an extended edit on his play it say it label, complete with high profile remixes) is another great collab featuring the vocals of jojo de freq, and the track itself is a harmonious, radiant house jam that is humid and human in equal measure. the otherworldly, snaking feel free again showcases berkson & what s ability to coax alluring emotions out of their machines and closer logan five wraps things up in suitably spangled, textural fashion. despite the fact much of this album will work on a dancefloor in the hands of the right dj, there s an invention and musicality to it that renders the whole thing hugely listenable away from the club. a testament to berkson & what s analogue invention and fluid ideas, keep up appearances really is a master electronic oeuvre.
vakum records is a combination of three people who share the same desire for quality and consistent carrier of electronic sound in this era full of information and digital imprint. label will be issued only through the vinyl form in limited copies and no re-press.
