following sterling entries from derek carr, john shima and mihail p, distant worlds reaches out to perseus traxx for a demonstration of the emotional heft and utopian optimism that classic techno promises in its most compelling moments. this is relatable, familiar territory, but executed with finesse beyond the reach of the average producer. a new mystery is bathed in swirling synth tones as elegant as they are moving, while simulacra places a bold square wave riff front and centre for an impactful deep techno meditation. circumstantial reframes the same rich melodic approach in a frantic chassis of snapping beats darting around the grid with playful glee, and then the map is not the territory applies the same logic to a mystical but rhythmically charged trip into the netherworld of machine soul.
the latest love notes welcomes perseus traxx to the fold with just the kind of romantic, classically informed hardware jam action that the label so dearly loves. fears of simplicity kicks off on a celestial tip that reaches skyward with its plush layers of electronic melodics, while exhilaration of the new sports a distinctly mr. fingers-flavoured vibe that s impossible to dislike. half heard whispers is a lighter jam that floats along on an airy bed of pads, and then in our dreams takes the prize as the prime cut on the record, digging deep to depict a more mysterious version of the old skool house music we know and love.
following well received eps from myriadd and q-chip, gnosis are ecstatic to have prolific uk producer nigel rogers (aka ellis de havilland, operator tracey, orpheus, pagan ritual, sir leon greg etc.) on board for their third release.
drowning in your eyes is a four track ep recorded under his perseus traxx handle. a name he s used for a mass of relentlessly creative output on bunker, chiwax, i love acid, m>o>s recordings, solar one music, barba records and hardmoon london to name but a few.
this release was born of a cross country trip with an 808 drum machine by thomas ragsdale aka winter son, alongside jozef k, resident of famed manchester and ibiza clubnight sankey, as they join perseus traxx to hammer electricity out of machines. with itʼ,,,s rim shots and claps and other transistor rhythms reverberating across vast distances of space, side a is stripped back and deep from the outset, pushing forward as scattered tones, arpeggiations and disjointed voices leave their trails vanishing from perception. side b tightens up from the previous reverbs and throws acid into the mix, as the two join perseus traxx and the sound becomes more raw and urgent as the three of them jam on their chosen machines.
seventh release in the i love acid series. strictly limited to 303 copies, hand numbered & stamped, heavyweight 12inch vinyl. no digital. no represses. perseus traxx in action with some lush acid techno - melodies submerged in deep reverb amongst clattering drum machines and 303 snarls. all original analogue kit, all the real deal. strictly one copy per customer.
18 months after perseus traxx brought flight recorder his first e.p, dedicated to four of the nine muses of ancient greece, the label now ushers in the second instalment dedicated to four more muses, on goddesses of inspiration ii. the feel is the same as before with jagged cutting tones jammed live then edited down. heavy synths and scattered drums perform an ode characterising the appropriate muses, as tangled wires and a pair of hands wrench the overload of inspiration they give from basic machines. once again perseus release on flight recorder is a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.
next up on titanic city, needs no introduction, nigel rogers aka perseus traxx has been a staple part on most record bags, a man dedicated to performance outside the box, has produced one of the greatest releases we will surely drop all year. some kind comments in our direction had to surly be returned with a request for a release and did he deliver. nigels first question was *what do you like* - *well we love your m>o>s, bunker, photic fields, snuff trax material*, he returned with a little bit of all. i am not gonna give the whole soaring pads, scraping percussive smears or the frenzied synth lines. this is perseus traxx he always delivers!! there is a rough and raw diy feel to this music that makes it jump out of the speakers and arrest your attention, as is always the case with titanic city.
we are pleased to announce the release of dr burisch by perseus trax on crimes of the future. after releases on bunker, mos & chiwax (to name a few), the ep is a four track soundtrack to some forgotten alien abduction documentary... maybe. starting off with rainy tuesday and its skipping pitch shift melodies, and followed by lotus protocol and its almost richard d. hook. on the flip we have the title track, slow and building, very much the theme of the piece. the ep finishes with electrical surge, and its static crackle of radio interference and damaged power lines.
nalog superhero perseus traxx known for his legendary live performance and releases for bunker, chiwax, boe, m>o>s> & snuff trax finally makes his way to the city of chicago via jordan fields klapmaster records label. this was created based on a real life event in robin hoods sherwood forest.

parrish smith s debut of dystopic forbidding sets the tone of this label s impressive first release with a superb stark, acid ridden slab of body music. helena hauff adds to the proceedings with her remix of pankows >das vodkalied< taking no prisoners and using heavy percussion in contrast to a wonderfully tense set of arpeggiations, which all descend into skull crushing pressure. carrying over to the flip side are pankow, pioneers of the italian industrial/ebm scene, with two tracks from their legendary first tape -throw out rite- from 1983. with das vodkalied disembodied vocals are cut up and come from every direction driven by a raw, off-kilter energy and pounding beat. i m food for you cranks up the drive and anxiety to create a killer track based around stark arpeggiation. last of all, perseus traxx provides an acidic stripped down venting of frustrations which he spits out with vehemence.
cyber dance records are back on the attack with a fresh release from the legendary perseus traxx aka nigel rogers, a 4-track ep entitled after recent scientific developments an apparent horizon . its a firmly machine-based and totally jam-packed affair reflecting diverse sounds from the uk s own rich history of electronic dance music, with elements from the classic warp -deep space sound- prominent as much as the more usual 303-jacking acid house grooves in the vein of baby ford or bam bam. lost dreams opens the record with a floaty dream-like hipnosis from the depths of space and sets the tone in magnificent style, followed up on side a with the irresistible roll of reverse the trend that takes the groove harder, further and deeperstraight off to the beyond. dark strings reminiscent of old lfo, b-12 or autechre vinyls from the early 90s propel us into side b on darkness stalks , and then we re transported onto the concluding track on the ep, distances , an epic closer that opens with beautiful reverbed claps and acid squelches before diving into an inky black void of timeless space-travelling and slow-building tension that could surely echo hauntingly around any m25 rave in the depths of a late 1980s night.
CIRCUIT CONTROL - THE CRYSTAL ISSUE CYCLE 2 (GREEN MARBLED / VINYL ONLY)
coloured 12" Vinyl NL07.03.14

first appearance of this small-scale vinyl imprint from the east of holland with a split-release by the well-respected aroy dee (m>o>s, delsin, rush hour, dolly) and perseus traxx (bunker, m>o>s). both of them are known for their deep analogue house music productions with raw and sharp edges, but most recognizable in their work is the presence of true emotions. this will also be the distinctive element for the labels future output: emotive electronic music with the soul deep within. honest and unpolished music that is inspired by everyday life, whether it comes from pain or joy. perseus traxx kicks off with an immersive, slow building and uplifting track, followed by a moody but hypnotic and slightly acid inspired piece. aroy dee takes care of the flip-side, with a dreamy and atmospheric track, and one raw, surprising and energetic cut. a versatile selection of tracks
a brand new label split between stockholm and york, homes of the two artists on this first release. despite the label name, this is far from being the final chapter, simply the beginning of a new collaboration to push raw club tracks and machine tones inspired by chicago house and detroit techno. full force, full quality electronic music, plain and simple.
perseus traxx is no stranger to the legion of underground warriors who place quality above quantity, having released on bunker, m/o/s, photic fields, boe recordings, boomchik, chiwax, sequencias, and future flash to name a few, as well as being one half of nite vision with the man behind mantra/myriadd.the muses are the nine goddesses who promote literature, science and the arts, the personifications of inspiration. though only named and assigned characteristics as recently as the roman era, they were revered by the ancient greeks, who documented that them as having been recruited by the egyptian god osiris as he passed through ethiopia prior to embarking on a tour of asia and europe to teach the arts of cultivation to mankind. itís with this in mind that perseus traxx, makes his first release on newcastleís flight recorder label, delivering an ode to four of them directly rather than the forms they have inhabited while they visit him. bubbling and cutting, heavy synths and dusty tones are jammed out live to tape, ranging from the playful to the stark as they characterise the appropriately named tracks. an ordered tangle of wires and patching in a unique set of acid-free sonic experiments, that sometimes feel as cold and edgy, as they do warm and carefree.
finally out of little britain, ahum, sorry, out of little paxton, mr. rogers is currently thriving on his newly acquired medication of high-quality codeine, all thanks to the benign blessings of the pharmaceutical industry: his house is definitely jackin it deeper and browner than ever before, almost sounding like a ron hardy shooting up at the end of a hard days night back in the days of the warehouse.
with releases under a range of pseudonyms (orpheus, sir leon greg, nite vision) and support for his previous explorations of depth coming from the likes of john heckle, dj deep, aroy dee, chicago skyway and steffi to name but a few, once again perseus traxx unashamedly shows his nature on this release. thoughts, feelings and emotions are by far the most important influences on music, and capturing moments then translating into a musical form he once again documents the more personal elements of his life, taking you deep. perseus weaves a rich tapestry of emotions and desires using heavily weighted bass tones and skipping percussion that thread together with expansive strings and pads. these are married with more detailed melodies and modulated tones that shimmer in and out of the psyche as he uses analogue boxes and their warmth like a loom. this collection of music ranges from the deep and dreamy, to total transcendence within steady dance floor rhythms clothed in a warm yet spacious fabric of sound. deep house, sometimes with a real sense of urgency that juxtaposes with it is inherent flights of fancy.
after his excellent and well-received coded emotion ep on the mos label in late 2011, analogue fetishist perseus traxx returns for another mos outing. it finds the producer in similarly classic mode, exploring the deep down depths of house and techno in his own fuzzy and hugely atmospheric way.

while they may have landed a fair while ago, it’s great to see emotional response revisit timothy j fairplay s crucial early eps with an absolutely on point remix package. scientific dreamz of u brings his distinctive signal chain to -stories of prison-, using grinding synths and some snaking broken beats to create an early 90s trance mood to die for. alessandro parisi keeps things on a distinctly new wave tip for -aim for the yellow sector-, and perseus traxx brings a bold set of machine beats and technicolour synths to -saco bay-. antenna finishes the ep off by creating a winsome, wavey version of -night ferry- for sensitive souls to do the robot to.
roman producer (and a force behind minimalrome label) valerio lombardozzi known as heinrich dressel returns to barba with a second release for our label, titled -the styx swamp-. heinrich has a unique way of combining classic techno and electro sounds with elements from the beloved drexcyan universe and john carpenter leitmotifs, and making them come together in a manner that both moves your body and pushes your mind beyond the point of awareness. as with the previous record, -lurking underwater-, here he pulls off the move with the same efficiency and without sounding like he s repeating himself. -gray slope-, -sailing the nether waterways- and -the styx swamp- are all quite moody and deep, rich with sound and thick with vibe. however, the tracks feel equally at home in 4 am techno situation and a heady afterhours affair. he truly is a master of crafting hybrids whose influences get so flawlessly embedded that it s hard to point them out. if that s not enough, -the styx swamp- got a treatment by nigel rogers aka perseus traxx, a multi-faceted producer and a mighty live act performer. nigel stayed respectful to the original but made the original s bouncy groove into something more direct and reduced, while retaining the same feel conditioned by lead synth s hypnotic quality. we re known to give a little bit of extra love to our releases so (as all before) this one s pressed onto a heavy duty 180 gram vinyl and beautifully packaged in an original artwork by emaemaema.
nice price deal !!! it s been a big shock for all of us to hear the sad news that our good friend andreas gehm passed away this year. his last big project is the -worldwide electronics- - series on his own label -cologne underground- which brings his friends from all over the world together. the idea of „worldwide electronics“ is to combine music from all over the world on one album (in fact, there will be a vol.2 too). the second idea was to combine well known artist with newcomer. when gehm, who runs cologne underground together with dbh distribution, ask the artist for tracks, he don’t ask for any specific style. the artist were free to deliver whatever they want. so at the end it ended up from deep house (oldschool definition, not edm definition) to acid. „worldwide electronics vol.1“ contains one track from greece (dimdj), germany (hardfloor), netherlands (baz reznik), england (perseus traxx), columbia(s.valencia) 2 tracks from japan (takeshi kouzuki and jin-cromanyon) and the first of hopefully a row of collaboration tracks from legowelt (netherlands) and elec pt.1 (germany) as „gehm & wolfers).
„closed sessions“ is a little comeback for our small family business rivulet records, so we re very happy to get help from some good friends on this one. pablo mateo from lack, perseus traxx who has released on bunker and mos, mod.civil from ortloff in leipzig, profile from esthland and our very own stanley schmidt are artists who have been inspiring and exciting us for quite a while and who seem to share the same love for serious dancemusic. although the tracks are very different, the whole compilation is driven by a dark and moody vibe which doesn t let go the utopian and hopeful core of housemusic which has been the light we re been running for since one of these mornings… we hope you like what you hear, thanks for the support! yours sincerely, rivulet.

the ninth release from the mainrecords shop, on its eponymously titled label comes in the form of three tracks of slick late night electro from matt star, plus a remix from perseus traxx. with well over three dozen releases under his belt in one guise or another matt star aka mattias schildger is no stranger at all to production of high quality electronic music, as this latest ep clearly displays. happily blurring boundaries between house and electro, with its tight, crisp beats the release exudes a form of stripped back and honest late night cool with basses that bubble in a way sometimes reminiscent of ed dmx, while others lend more of a chicago feel accompanied by rolling toms. synth lines and arpeggiations cut in and out of subtle modulations giving the feel of anticipation one gets while tearing along the motorways of a city, late at night, the lights of the city and other vehicles brightly darting by, streaking and reflecting across the cars windscreen. perseus traxx delivers a subtle remix that remains true to the elements of the original and while adding a booming kick and some of his own production techniques, influences and grit to the mix, shows he isnt stuck in one genre or sound.
