as we are beset by the darkest of seasons, let sequencias provide a score to fit the mood. presented in two parts, *hybrid furrows* marks the second transmission of the mysterious healing force project from treviso, italy. the first part is a dense, introspective overture. a ceaseless minor key drone lays the path for deep thrumming gong-like pulse and shuddering percussive textures. a song without a coda, a dream without resolution, it simply dissipates like fog—never revealing it’s center. the second part is similarly monolithic in nature, but crafted more for movement than meditation. it is vicious arpeggiated psychedelia, sharp enough to cut into the deepest recesses of your psyche. both tracks were recorded live in one take. vinyl only.
the first release on project squared in a year, *make your mess* is a three track ep by melbournes craig mcwhinney. craig has been making music for years and releasing since the late 2000s on melbourne labels such as pinksilver, melbourne deepcast and his own haul music, also on labels based further afield such as brendon moellers steadfast and speedy js electric deluxe. craigs music is techno, but it isnt preoccupied with the 4/4, employing broken, swung and rolling drum patterns. his tracks often include melodic and harmonic elements and effects reminiscent of dub techno but without conforming to the pastiche template of the sub-genre. the make your mess ep is composed of the core title track and two additional tracks that arose as interpretations and variations on the initial production: *provocation is an excuse* is more furious and loud, *disengage* is more restrained. all three are around 125 bpm and were produced in the space of a month between september and october 2012.
distorting former interpretations from the late unchained rhythms series propelling the primitive released >eno< into an entirely new dimension, resulting in what joaquin describes as a mind-fuck battle between himself and himself.
hailing from an era still ripe with optimism, nate tinsleys sole ep on music station, under the moniker nathaniel x project, is one of the dopest 12 inches of the 1990s. embodying the now fading dreams of a whole generation of club children, the veritable political program was everything deep house strove to be: aspirational, socially-involved, visceral dance music with raw sincerity and unashamed soul.
teaser von j.rawls (lone catalysts) und seinem liquid crystal project zum kommenden dritten album, das anfang 2012 erscheinen soll. die band zollt in typischer jazz / hip hop-manier de la soul mit einer coverversion des stakes is high klassiker tribut. auf der b-seite findet sich eine exklusive version mit den newcomern lxefortheuncool and p blackk
kowton and tom dicicco, residing in bristol and manchester respectively, make very different music from one another. kowtons seems to come from house, perhaps also electro and garage, often quite slow in tempo and hard to pin down to a specific genre. toms music is techno, bass heavy, melodic, textured and rooted around 125 bpm. with these distinctive styles the idea of a split ep might seem ambitious, but the result is four cohesive but different tracks that show the talents of both artists perfectly in the format of two originals on one side and two remixes of each others originals on the other. tom diciccos original is driven by a low-mid range thick stab and pounding kick drum, littered with intricate but not overbearing hi hat and snare work and some very atmospheric mid range. kowtons is subtle and sparse, low fidelity and plodding, with rattling percusion carrying the tune along. on the other side of the record, kowtons remix of toms original is driven by an enormous bassline, with an off kilter dubby feel to the slow tempo and genre defying tune. toms remix of kowton rounds off the ep with a return to stab driven techno, pulsating, dynamic and trance inducing.
we welcome aboard simina grigoriu with this fantastic 4 tracker ep, project boondocks, on frequenza! you are going to hear a lot from this exciting young djane and producer. all around support from huge names, including paul kalkbrenner!
and are a duo living in manchester, uk. they have released a split 12 inch with 16 bit on mindset in 2009, the second 12 inch on black sun records that came out recently and a couple of 12 inches on horizontal ground. they sent me various batches of tracks spanning a wide range of sounds, all rooted in techno to my ears but spanning different tempos, emphasis and mood. i selected three of those tracks to appear on this ep, ranging between 130 and 135 bpm. (project squared)
and the story goes like this: skipson (also known as knarf skipson in the past) was recording the >ks editspot pt.1<, which is based on samples from a rob mello track. as skipson is a nice fella, he sent the final version to rob. and as rob is a nice fella too, he liked it, sent one of his tracks back and this project was born. thats the easy way of sample clearing! this 10inch is about house music, as simple as that! groovy beats and fat basslines, rough and ready. limited to 500 copies - enjoy!
psq005 is furesshus follow up 12 inch release to last years trio of tracks (psq002) that garnered attention from ben klock, sigha and marcel dettmann, who continues to play out his music regularly. furesshus bleak and powerful remix of l-ow (psq003) has been criminally under appreciated, and now his second 12 inch on project squared (psq005) will showcase a more house influenced, but still techno at its core, sound with >lucid< and >all i want<.
waxs juan hoerni taking us on a trip with this lush ode to africa. >afrique< is turning heads in the deep/soulful community, earning plenty of plays and support from overseas as well. might have to do with spinnas typically sublime musical remix. great stuff from the up-and-coming la imprint chacha.
the fourth release on the project squared label marks our first year in existence. asusu, the artist who graced the first project squared 12 inch a year ago, returns with >no kya<, a 144bpm track of introspective, impeccable sound design, a tightly controlled swung beat reminiscent of garage and a deep bass line.
the q4 is a collaboration of three young dutch producers: arts the beatdoctor, sense and stw. who, though they all work in rather similar ways, have a unique sound of their own. the (at the time 4 men) crew was formed in a sleazy, dark bar in amsterdam during the fourth quarter of 2005. and have since then created an impressive amount of material together, coloured by a wide range of musical influences and artistic collaborations. as apposed to continually repeating a loop, theq4 compose their tracks practically note-by-note by making collages of hundreds of dusty little samples and percussion hits taken from vinyl.
this 12 inch picks up where furesshus digital releases at a dubstep tempo on echodub left off but also pushes into the deep, berlin inspired techno sound that he is presently concentrating on. >1993< sounds fast for its mid 130s tempo, the bass drives the tracks pace and the delay affected stabs provide just enough melody. >horizons< feels slower, you could perhaps describe it as a half step track although it twists up the formula for that sub genre. the bass evolves and changes throughout the track, rising and falling, coupled with drones and drums punctuating the track rather than providing a constant element. >untitled< marks a change in furesshus sound. 4/4 deep techno, 11 minutes of gradual, constant evolution in the melodic parts of the track but the driving, perfectly toned kick drum and hi hats holding the groove in place. mastered by cgb at dubplates and mastering, berlin, germany.
yoruba records is proud to present the andre torquato project. as the primary songwriter and arranger nomumbah, andre is not a newcomer on the scene. his ideas and melodies have become signature to fans of the love moves release. here andre digs deeper into an alter ego with a deep, minimal, tech approach to house music yet keeping the realms of his brazilian roots bridging his take on electronic music. manfred contains three songs, all of which contain the manfred monikers style stabs alongside solid rhythmic drum patterns. we are sure this is only the beginning of an evolving future for the andre torquato project. enjoy!
the pairing of maziar namvars audio soul project and the highly regarded urbantorque label is, (in the words of idj magazine) a match made in underground house heaven.product of modern living is the second installment of this fine partnership following on from satellite a release that drew attention from a diverse collection of djs including danny howells, ben watt and pete heller. the three tracks on this ep exemplify the combination an unexpected fusion of disparate flavors that works a treat!! special rerelease
