PORTABLE PRESENTS RANGER
alan abrahams aka portable aka bodycode is an artist very much defined by his past and his journey from south africa to paris via berlin and lisbon has seen him develop into a critically acclaimed producer, singer and video artist working with some of the biggest players in house and techno. part of his constant drive to evolve and challenge himself, this autumn abrahams launches new project ranger, teaming up with london label waella s choice for the debut release. the five tracks on portable presents ranger are a delicate mélange of jazz , soul and electronic and one of abraham s most explicit nods to his south african roots. on the a-side, the ep makes a steady start with bazokonwaba accompanied by a lullaby from south african a capella group korus, hailing from the small township of mbekweni in the western cape. they also feature heavily on the ep s most exuberant moment in nomaliso - already a favourite in esa s recent boiler room - and the more languid b-side opener indaba with a choir of cowbells all harmonizing in unison. reset and vessel provide a self-reflective conclusion to the ep, holding their own as instrumentals with cameroonian bass player stan on bass and parisian saxophonist chisneg lending a hand on the latter. early support from tama sumo, lakuti, gilles peterson, rinse fm, esa, stamp the wax, dimensions recordings

ORDER (2X12 INCH GATEFOLD LP)
portable sunsets is one of the monikers of peter segerstrom: a producer based in brooklyn, us. he previously released his full-length album bless on atomnation, an lp as surfing on 1080p and another portable sunsets lp on deadelus magical property label. order is the follow up of these records and is a dreamy, somewhat lo-fi experimental techno lp. combined with an ancient ambient undertone, ‘order’ is not loosing its club ready vibe. this record floats somewhere between laid-back warehouse techno and the electronica genre - very much representing a unique style: peter often uses his own voice in his productions, programmed through self-created synths in max/msp. vocals have become textures and are used as a synth, pad or soundscape. the combination of genres makes order a perfect record to dream away on at home, as well as to dance to in clubs.

the music of portable is truly unique. habitually perlons in-house singer and also the man that is bodycode, alan abrahams is capable of evoking the spirits of traditional deep house songs - yes, you read right: songs - without getting lost in nostalgia, manufacturing boring carbon copies or a longing for a past that never was. his first visit to ramonas little outlet is all that: haunting, melancholic yet optimistic, as deep as it is driving and most of all mesmerising. >a process< features all his great sound signature moves, comes with an acappella for brave djs and a serious flutramental on top of it all for the faint at heart. creation might be a painful process, but surely a rewarding one for portable. ramona is in love.

SUN (PORTABLE REMIX)
kenton slash demon is indeed one of the most promising new talents out of denmark. the two guys who are also behind the much acclaimed indie-disco band when saints go machine and have gained massive attention with their ksd act, without releasing a lot of material. why? the answer is simple: all they do is just so good. their sound is both organic and futuristic, and their obvious skills take their productions further than the typical frame and dramaturgy of club a track. still 4/4 rhythmic - but with clever and super melodic bass lines and interesting breaks. >sun< is the first release in a ksd trilogy on tartelet called >schwarzchild trilogy< inspired by the elements that form our galaxy. >the sun< 12inch features a remix from the much hyped alan abrahams aka portable / bodycode, from portugal who made added vocals, deepness and classic mr. fingers juno-6 bass line - deep and clever.
VERDICT - PORTABLE REMIX / 10 INCH
alan abrahams, the man behind portable, emerged out of the ruins of a post apartheid south africa. growing up in an impoverished cape town township, tagged >beverly hills< by the locals, abrahams was always immersed in his sisters ritual of getting ready for a night out to a soundtrack of 80s soul, hi life and hip hop. inspired by the first batch of chicago house records, the foundations were laid for his future in music. experimenting with ways of combining traditional african rhythms with the 4/4 sound of house,abrahams completed various projects in south africa. most of which gave a commentary to the political turmoil of the country at the time. abrahams inevitably became frustrated by the geographic isolation of the country and relocated to london in 1997. in the uk abrahams went on to complete various releases for internationally recognised labels such as context and background records before starting up his own label, süd electronic in 2002
