after releasing with chris moss acid on shipwreck in 2014, drvg cvltvre is now back with a full ep of his own on dutch label cos_mos. since 2009, vincent koreman a.k.a. drvg cvltvre has been churning out his own acid, no wave and experimental house on labels like viewlexx and permanent vacation and now kicks off the new year in style with three more inventive offerings. new earth army is a slow, heavyweight and coarse track with rattling chords, angry percussion and elastic drums that manages to be physical and tough yet groovy and playful at the same time. we have become the filth of the universe is a big, fat, heavy wedge of slow motion techno with monstrous drums and wild acid lines all spraying about wildly for the duration. it’s a warehouse sized track that will reduce the ‘floor to a writhing mess and finally possessed is a sci-fi riddled track with lots of spacey synths, filtered analogue lines and paranoid sirens all making for a turbulent brew of dark and otherworldly energy. once again here drvg cvltvre proves he has a raw sound all his own.
elastic dreams, a new label for 2011, bringing out no-hype, no bullshit, deep and warm electronics. music for the mind, as well as the feet, expect to hear techno, ambient, new-beat and other frequencies over coming releases with music coming from nyra, skudge, md2 and a sagittariun. debut release here from a sagittariun, with remixes from md2 aka mike dehnert. a sagittariun looks up to the constellations to bring the first release on elastic dreams the circle stops somewhere is a simple groove with a sweet and melodious synth riff that comes alive throughout the track, some have made comparisions to ames classic rej, whilst not really in that league, circle maintains the dynamic pace with powerful 909 patterns whilst keeping a nice warm analogue vibe. telepathic heights is a brooding, percussive experience with a growling bass riff and enveloping keys with sci-fi elements to its composition. md2 (aka mike dehnert/fachwerk) comes good on the remixes on the flip side. his mello mix is a disjointed and muscular groove that rips apart the original synth riff, and bends and warps it over solid md2 beats to make a real low-slung funky workout. md2s hard mix does what it says on the tin, a relentless bass booming groove and spongy use of the originals samples, this is md2 at his very best!

a great compilation can open the gate to another world. who knew that some of the most exciting afro-funk records of all time were actually made in the small west african country of benin? once analog africa released the first african scream contest in 2008, the proof was there for all to hear, gut-busting yelps, lethally welldrilled horn sections and irresistibly insistent rhythms added up to a record that took you into its own space with the same electrifying sureness as any favourite blues or soul or funk or punk sampler you might care to mention.
ten years on, intrepid crate-digger samy ben redjeb unveils a new treasuretrove of vodoun-inspired afrobeat heavy funk crossover greatness. right from the laceratingly raw guitar fanfare which kicks off les sympathics’ pile-driving opener, it’s clear that african scream contest ii is going to be every bit as joyous a voyage of discovery as its predecessor. and just as you’re trying to get off the canvas after this one-punch knock out, an irresistible afro-ska romp with a more than subliminal echo of the batman theme puts you right back there. ignace de souza and the melody aces’ “asaw fofor- would’ve been a killer instrumental but once you’ve factored in the improbably-rich-to-the-point-of-being-nat-king-cole-influenced lead vocal, it’s a total revelation.
dead cross ist eine neue band, bestehend aus mike patton (faith no more, fantomas, mr. bungle), dave lombardo (ex-slayer, misfits, suicidal tendencies), justin pearson (the locust, retox, head wound city) und michael crain (retox). gemeinsam liefern sie mit dem gleichnamigen debüt eines der sehnlichst erwarteten metal-alben des jahres ab. dass dead cross nicht in genre-konventionen verharren, dafür bürgen die protagonisten. hier eine coverversion des new wave-klassikers von bauhaus namens -bela lugosi s dead-, dort der gesang, der gerne mal virtuos die tonlagen wechselt. dennoch bleibt das klangbild von dead cross immer auf den punkt. die musik ist hoch-energetisch, streckenweise sehr dunkel gefärbt, die inhalte verarbeiten indirekt die aktuellen verwerfungen in politik und medien. lp mit glow-in-the-dark schriftzug in transparent / rot / schwarz und downloadcode inklusive!
to give end to his alter ego mariano marcial aka -deep mariano- gives us its latest album. a story filled with syncopated rhythms, elegant passages between techno and microhouse abstract sounds. this work completes in a collaboration with exequiel, artist of san pablo, and a rmx with a solid groove with futurist low funk bass of federico molinari.
kmyle is back after his powerful ep skryptöm 31, with a new massive album. in this upcoming masterpiece he is combining deep melodies and energetic forces to create a constant atmospheric tension. cohesive and modern, this album shows us the multi-faceted expression of kmyle s music. designed beetwen skipping beat, skittish drums and powerfull bassline, «northern landscapes» is made with sensibility and precision. each track reflects a moment of his life and a side of his personality. together, they bring us to a cosmic journey through space and time, surfing on a melancholic vibe. worn between hypnothic state and powerfull sonorities, this album delivers us a pure and emotional techno. full of elegance and sensitivity for your beautiful soul... enjoy !
from the underground of stavanger norway one could expect some serious filth and crunch, but ullis tapes issues two soft, gentle and almost slick house tracks with bubling acidic melodies and pads on the a (with tom ace from club no-no 3) and lengthy slow chorded lullaby house on the b feat. bejjer.
selected advent deal. 2017 repress!!! one of the two the other people place releases (the warp full length and this 12). drexciyan involvement in this classic release is obvious. one of the deepest and intense tracks with such a warm positive vibe. flipside contains a track by mystic tribe. (not very mystical of course for those who know the history of detroit techno. unique track from a unique project... and there are not many projects with tribe in its name. their release on retroactive is one detroit techno collector items). one of those records that get you through the day. classic!!! re-issue on the clone aqualung series with new artwork.
discographies in dance music don’t come much more impressive than that belonging to paul woolford, the man behind seminal releases for the likes of planet e, xl recordings and running back. special request is the project that sees him continuing to defy expectation with a new ep on the fabric-run label houndstooth. stairfoot lane bunker encapsulates this approach with 5 bold new excursions into the outer limits followed by a remix from minor science (known for his previous releases on whities and the trilogy tapes) the eagle-eyed will notice 5 of these tracks appear on fabriclive 91. this ep is issued as an addendum. redrum is the fierce opener. rampantly-edited electro beats, a sampled speak-n-spell vocal, and a pure sci-fi breakdown sets the scene for the rest. stairfoot lane bunker and replicant are jungle tracks taken to dizzying extremes - the former building from widescreen atmospherics, thunder spells and lightning before descending into a frenzy of breakbeats and long heavy bass notes. replicant ratchets the pressure up further with hyper-edits across it s breakbeat introduction and throughout, punctuated by furnace-rattling subs. telepathic dog and five lane ends are highly evocative ambient pieces, pushing into the uncanny realms of metaphysical music. to end the release minor science comes through with his remix of stairfoot lane bunker, effortlessly blending in his own work with the disjointed sr breakbeats, flashing only snippets of the serrated bars, chopping them up and creating a new track in the process.
after the release of the album -the rustling of the leaves- in november of 2015, and appearing on tommy four seven s 47 label, snts announces his new label sacred court, which will move towards a more experimental and distorted sound, covering styles such as noise, industrial, techno post-punk, ebm, etc.

tattoo and street artist by day, techno producer when dusk hits, the multi talented andreas andreasson aka diagenetic origin returns to sonic groove for his annual installment of heavy, deep and diligent techno. with the *golden age ep*, the berlin-based producer showcases a diverse collection of moody cuts, from the futuristic longings of the rhythmically challenging *telepathic future* to the deep cavernous percussion workout of *the awakening*. drawn out aerial melodies are both supported and shattered by andreas penchant for heavy primal drum programming, serving as a reminder of his formative years spent drumming for punk and hardcore bands in sweden. spanning the depth and breadth of the techno scale, *golden age* commands attention and adds to his consistently qualitative output on sonic groove.
after an a-side debut on m_red ltd’s heady 10’’ series, shadowy outfit overall severity return with their first full outing for key vinyl. much like the slabs of steely sonic wares that have paved the way before it, “knowing the healing” presents three works of on-point dance floor material we’ve come to associate with the underground tastemaker. “explain pain” is the ep’s aggravated opener. a pounding kick and itchy percussion unfurls into a din of claps and noises, spliced with melodious peals and a low-slung sort of groove. “backfiring nerves” is one of those cool peak-time weapons: frantic yet subtle, deeply groovy and plied with much-loved vintage crashes. “parasympathetic” then concludes in the form of a chugging basement bomb awash with bleary acid tones, crystal hats and muted dissonant chimes. all in all, “knowing the healing” marks a powerful entry into the ring from these ones-to-watch newcomers.

four slices of electro goodness from the london based pyramid transmissions label - regarded as one of the most on form electro labels (dj magazine). this ep marks a welcome return to their vinyl output after almost a 2 year break in their vinyl transmissions. label founders adj (famed for his outings on andrea parkers touchin bas imprint), and pathic, both unleash some electro acid tweekery, albeit in somewhat different forms.

paul woolford aka special request bleibt seinem typischen, sehr britischen rave-stil treu und liefert - nach releases auf namhaften labels wie planet e (carl craig), running back (gerd janson), xl recordings oder houndstooth - ein atemberaubendes fabric-set ab, das mit klassischem uk und detroit techno von richard d. james (caustic window, polygon window), cristian vogel und dj stingray beginnt, um sich im verlauf zu einer tour de force diverser schattierungen von jungle, drum & bass und noise zu entwickeln.
