estetika 001 introduces the first release of the new imprint of jason patrick and pat king. the label s objective is to release a signature style of timeless techno. berlin-based artist mekas (originally from buenos aires) delivers the first 3 track record. nodata. a1 starts off the release with lebreton featuring qik. thick kick and bass anchor a beautifully warm hypnotic synth riff that filters meticulously throughout the track working hand in hand with a subtle atmospheric pad and spacious reverb touches to create a uniquely huge engulfing sound. b1 is the second track titled marshfield. a heavy tune for peak time. its kick. toms. and bassline form a rugged groove for its dark synth. which along with the mysterious pad capture the essence of the track while ride cymbals glisten and automate throughout. b2 is the third and final track. nothing. which continues the dark and mysterious vibe of the release. an acidy mid-range synth part works along with an ominous pad and well programmed hi-hats. claps. and rides with just the right reverb treatment to provide space and depth to the track.
aula magna records presents atmen by mekas. a storming record that reveals the artist s latest techno explorations in full effect. featuring stockholm ltd label boss par grindvik as guest remixer. a techno statement shaped by melodic and rhythmic interactions that draw the listener into the artists profound sound world.
the a-side opens with the powerful beat of clark nova. a cut that moves forward with a modulating synth line and simple but cleverly designed percussions. this is followed by unknown soldier. an intense techno weapon that reflects the distinctive sound of mekas.
the b-side features both versions of atmen. starting off with par grindiviks dance-floor rework of the title track that combines a fresh arpeggiated motif and a powerful groove with the emotional spirit of the original. atmen closes the record. an epic ambient techno track built with deep atmospheric synth lines on an intelligent stripped down breakbeat.
black and white marbled 4 tracker. just kaputt! label honcho coeter comes up with a stripped down. dirty and banging track while jonas kopp. mike gervais and mekas worked on the remix front. thats what we call techno!
with der hut 17. mekas >rain cover< gets three very individual and pretty outstanding retreatments. argentinean fellow pablo denegri teases out the softer and more subtle tones of the very straight-forward original. whereas homeboy qik gives it more weird and enigmatic touch. the record gets finalized by a dry and minimalist techno rework from labelhead jonas wahrlich together with carbon.
the dark and mysterious >forms of dusk<. techno stripped down to its essence. makes up mike walls first release on der hut and is accompanied by stunning remixes of premier league producers deagon and mekas
first on decks.de !!! advanced electronics with an distinctive argentinian touch.
a1: liquen - a wide range of experimental yet carefully chosen sound structures framed by a massive rhythm section - south american new school techno which is gloomy and beautiful at the same time.
a2: neutro - motorized intensity focussing on a unique variety of obscure twisted synths - haunting sound art for minimal diehards.
b: rain cover - a deeply refreshing slice of minor-key-based musical stimulation. dominated by plain rhythmic patterns and riddled with subtle sound effects.
channel yourself or let yourself get channeled by a minimal techno essence out of coeter s creative mind. a five minute running techno track made for the floor subtle but with a breakless presence. advanced human s remix intensifies and compresses the sounds. banger! b side wins again it s always a matter of personal preferences we guess. techno has many faces and be assured by bbl that we do it for you. coeter and the mekas remix expand the strong output: black brook limited bblv009. supported by: paula temple.marcel dettmann. dr.motte.slam.flug. põr grindvik.secret cinema.forest people.chris liebing.arnaud le texier and many more...
