pvs is finally ready with the new release on his own label .the ep is composed of three tracks. the original version signed by pvs (h.omevvork label owner / m_rec ltd / key vinyl) is a overwhelming broken-beat techno. he remixes are signed by max_m (m_rec ltd label owner) and the spanish talent kwartz (polegroup).
funk you quickly established itself through the italian scene, since it formed as a djs and party promoters collective, as one of the biggest techno parties in the country. funk you is now coming out with a limited series of vinyls. the first wax -the continuous body - is an outstanding work from oniks, raised in milano and residing now in the well famous dude club, with three originals tracks and one remix from max m, the label manager of m rec ltd. the tracks draw upon ideas from various points, forms and transform it on a physical object.
the second m_recs release confirm the label concept: pure techno sound. in this release max m (m_recs owner) presents the title track >egg< with his repetitive groove characteristic. three big artists make the remixes. the first one by the english chris finke (flux recordings), the second one its too hard by the dutch techno master bas mooy (audio assault) and the third rmx is by the dutch intelligent techno artist charlton ravenberg (labyrinth, audio assault). if this is just the second release, i cant imagine the future of this label. its a concentrate of the best techno for all the techno crowd. big!
is it balearic? started the uber sublabel up a few years ago, but 2017 has undoubtedly been the strongest year so far for the imprint. following excellent stints from serene, wawawiwas and bonnie & klein, max manetti makes a debut appearance with a self-titled ep loaded with just the kind of slick, instrument-led island grooves we ve come to expect from the uber stamp. from the dense tropical trip of -jungle prayer- to the laconic guitar licks of -dub macumba-, the cyclical mysticism of -changuinola- on to -garrison- with its considered piano chops and stiff breaks, this is an ep of proficient musicianship and eclectic funk for all manner of situations.
continuing its conversation between the foggy environs of the pacific northwest and nyc’s thriving dance underground, blankstairs is thrilled to announce its newest release, dream city’s forward, a collaboration between s. deelay and c. perez (head of pdx’s consistently innovative pastel voids imprint).
the second ultimate hits instalment is from max mcferren. four tracks covering everything from dan bell inspired house to uk influenced rhythm tracks for the floor. strictly limited to 300 copies w/ hand printed sleeves.
max mcferren checks in for the third time (but first under his given name) on 1080p, taking risks and hittin’ on life over four tracks of weirded-out acid and funk-tinged elations on the “sipps” 12”. created in a time of complete uncertainty about the future in nyc’s chinatown, mcferren explores the purity of the break and acid ecologies, utilizing a “take me to your dealer” type of alien funk vocabulary in order to explore and push his own voice into a stranger place.
shoot the lobster is a new house and techno label from nyc. the first release is a split 12 inch and features grayson revoir and max mcferren, both djs and producers from nyc. side one is two tracks by grayson, spackle is driving bass cabinet garage, and get stolen is spacey sweaty acid. on side side b max mcferren delivers rusty smokey hard bassline panorama-ready house on one on all times (walk track).
japanese dj & producer altz also drops in on the remastered dfa label. enlisting the help of nu disco dons idjut boys this ep features the altz original productions max motion & yello plus two stellar remixes of yello done up by the boys aptly titled hoe down & dub down mixes.

summer mode on. balearic 4, compiled by breese, is the soundtrack for summer, brim-full of beach-ready tunes that truly reflect ibizas chilled musical spirit. featuring two album exclusives: on-u sounds cosmic fla-menco dub of los twangueros and a breese remix of robot 84 that brings spanish guitars firmly to the fore. digital exclusives too, quinn lukes different aspirations offers i-know-this familiarity, emerson kitamura covers 70s classic rock your baby in lullaby style, while max manettis changuinola winks back towards the happy mondays circa 1989. other highlights include gallos faron - currently proving the sunset bomb with ibiza djs j-walks modern remake of mazes twilight fuga rontos rework of kay zees barny as a modern-day down-tempo beauty, plus joe morris skies reprise, which carries the mood dreamily off into the night. a dozen true pearlers, each one confident and ready to take their place amongst any quality collection.
as a contrasting follow-up to our first single from rooteo & mahura’s metta album, the second single on made in green records keeps the format intact with entirely different results. deadbeat’s remix on part one was both respectful and subtly transformative, on part two, new york’s upcoming max mcferren, whose busy 2015 included eps on ultimate hits, allergy season, and 1080p, brings us a startling reinterpretation of album closer harmal very much in keeping with the vein of raw, aggressive house coming from brooklyn since that scene’s resurgence. the original version of harmal finishes the album in fine style, blending tablas, celestial electronics, and short melodica phrases that gradually swell with layers of vocal samples and orchestal pads before reaching a climax and slowly dying away in gradually receding layers of ambient electronics. mcferren’s remix leads off with only a bare framework of techno percussion. the entry of a sampled section of melody from the original signals a rapid transition to more abrasive territory, with sheets of metallic noise slashing through the high end, short vocal syllables stuttering, and an insistent bass pulse building up and breaking down with at least one element constantly in motion.

MACHS BESSER: 25 JAHRE DIE STERNE (2X12 INCH LP+CD)
2x12" Vinyl lp+cd D06.03.17
neben der cd und der 2lp+cd mit coverversionen erscheint eine streng limitierte prachtbox, die nicht nur diese, sondern auch bisher unveröffentlichten originalaufnahmen aus den frühen neunziger jahren, sowie einer verspäteten extended version, die die band selbst noch einmal eingespielt hat enthält. neben den coverversionen, die ja eigentlich alle die zeitlosigkeit der sterne zelebrieren, findet sich in dem in jeglicher hinsicht hochwertigen lp-boxset (gestaltet von yannick riemer von isolation berlin) dann noch etwas, das wohl doch als relikt bezeichnet werden kann. zwei demos der sterne, kleine schritte stolpern und sturm über der hallig, zeigen auf 7-inch-vinyl eine frühe version der band, ganz im charme ihrer hanseatischen jugendlichkeit (1991). die sterne selbst und erobique, sowie pollyester auf der flip, markieren auf einer ebenfalls beiliegenden disco-12-inch das andere ende des zeitstrahls (2016). so werden die beigaben plötzlich zur klammer eines kleinen universums, in dem sich aufzeigt, dass musik am schönsten ist, wenn sie nach 25 jahren bandgeschichte noch immer zwischen lustvoller virtuosität und dem charme des dilettantismus zu pendeln vermag, bringt es hendrik otremba, sänger der band messer im info zum album auf den punkt.
