the forever under-rated mb steps out on bh — after illustrious releases everywhere from mathematics to creme — with this gorgeous fifteen-minute epic, evoking the glory days of carl craig. on the flip, specter from sound signature draws the dancefloor in deep.
in part 2 of the laffer ep marco bernardi is going head down, straight ahead and striving for energy. attack of the dessert stormers is an overload of dark electro power, six minutes of squirming bassline-driven movement with surges of intensity from analogue bleeps and subtle drum pattern shifts. theres no let up on the flip side where two sliders brings equal force but in a more techno style. right from the start youll be grabbed by the bassline, but this one rewards extended listening as the track develops progressively with new melodies and metallic touches taking you deeper and deeper.

klasse wrecks welcomes bristol-based marco bernardi to its ranks following strong releases for clone, delsin, rawax, planet e, and most recently the kelly twins happy skull label. spacejam provides an ep of demented drums, fiddling electronics and refreshing originality, showcasing the signature sound of the studio-obsessed scottish born dj and producer. his idiosyncratic style runs through the three tracks here, from the space jack and green velvet-inspired vocals of the title track, through the rubbery funk of >no i didnt< and frenetic acid of oist mal.
for their fourth transmission, happy skull presents a trio of dystopian fantasies from analogue maverick marco bernardi. opener floating is a throbbing trip in to rattling techno territory complete with discordant chords and bubbling acid lines. broken boiler offers a trademark bernardi fusion of sweet, visceral melodies and raw machine drums. rounding things off is upside in , a fearlessly wonky voyage in to freaky techno-funk.
marco bernardi has enjoyed a long an illustrious career, but its probably in these last couple of years that the glaswegian producer has found his sound. previous releases on frustrated funk, clone, royal oak, creme organisation, futureboogie and rawax have built a solid reputation, and key releases last year on carl craigs planet e and mos/delsin have sealed his rep as a unique player in the industry.
marco bernardi is back on clone royal oak with a beautiful three track ep! tracks that are a nice blend of his roots in glasgow and detroit techno stirred into a nice personal outing that show his talents. the ep features slowly building tracks that keep the tension high with bernardis trademark melodies layered over basic house rhythms with a raw edge. the beauty and magic of electronic dance music captured by marco bernardi!
ultraltd nice price action >>> here an unexpected bonus 12 inch to the clone 56. with an exciting remix by man of the moment 2562! he delivers a mix full of heavy sub basslines that make the house shiver and completes it with fine detroit melodies. 2562 manages to craftly dart between a concentrated detroit-techno drive and a sensuous dubstep swing which is slightly going towards a 4/4 beat.... but then falls back into that seductive two-step pace. bernardi gives us another take on the original version which is on a melodic, moody and even melancholic tip... so sweet! to top things of mark august delivers his bonus beats extracted from his glossy house-flavoured techno track. as usual with the clone x series: limited supplies!
after his great release on royal oak recently marco bernardi is back on creme with a beautiful grand sweeping house track. >klinsfrar melode< rolls like a wave over the sandy beaches of your mind... or something like that. on the flip dj sprinkles beats the hell out of it with an epic 12 minute old school flavored warrior groove.
intense, deep,raw and dirty tracks by marco bernardi. his first release on clone records in a while and what a record! two tracks build around unpolished rhythms and open beginning that dont reveal immediately where its going. quiet unpredictable is the a-side that slowly opens up with a sultry string and then completely bursts open with a shiny melody that is in beautiful contrast with the raw percussion. broken silence is another deep track founded on a basic rhythm and metallic detroit bass line. topped with spoken words (by keith tucker from aux88) and bleepy melodies, underlaid with a deeper sexy bassline. a track rooted in the best traditions of techno... weve played this one over and over! machine music by men!
marco bernardi marks his second outing on the dirty planet imprint with a 4 track ep bursting with emotion and originality. >i feel the lies< has a more laid back approach with deep and trippy grooves and evolving acidy stabs which are complimented with the unassuming and neatly placed vocal of detroit legend and aux88 founder keith tucker, making it one of those truly >special< tracks. second track >giro< (exium remix) is directed more towards the harder techno fans keeping the arrangement simple and the kick big and bold, this excellent remix has seen early support from surgeon with him choosing to feature it on the recently released fabric53 mix cd. flipping the record over sees two tracks exploring different sounds and moods. >msry< builds pace surrounded by an array of atmosphere, hissing percussion and lush detroit sounding synths where as killer track >giro< is a raw, off beat, electro monster laced with acid sequences and dirty bass.
marco bernardi was an obvious choice for who got to do the first album on frustrated funk. representing his most delicate compositions ranging from freaky minimalistic electro trickery to the sweetest and intense excursions in the field of what they use to call intelligent techno . we simply picked out his best moments along the line and put it all together for this brilliant presentation. with this piece of art we show again that we don t give a shit about new styles, trends and hypes. we just want to deliver a very sweet package that you will still be playing and cherish in 15+ years from now. this deluxe double vinyl album will be sweetened with hand stamped label art, hand made screen printed sleeves and pressed on pretty pink transparent vinyl to make this package extra special. enjoy!!

jr seaton aka call super, sohn eines aus new orleans stammenden jazz-klarinettisten, wuchs in london auf. nachdem er als kind zunächst spanische gitarre und klavier spielen lernte, war es die club-szene der britischen hauptstadt, die den aufwachsenden teenager in ihren bann zog. mittlerweile hat sich call super dank erstklassiger releases auf houndstooth, dekmantel, throne of blood oder the trilogy tapes (als ondo fudd und elmo crumb) und einzigartiger dj-sets z.b. im berghain/panorama bar, boiler room, fabric oder beim renommierten dekmantel-festival einen vorzüglichen namen gemacht. für fabric 92, die neue ausgabe der berühmten dj-mix-serie, widmet sich call super nach eigenem bekunden den klängen der frühen morgenstunden im club, wenn geradlinige härte und dynamik der peaktime einem verspielten und sanft wogenden ansatz weichen.
