no frills, just thrills. sebastien san is back on his own ab initio imprint. time does fly when you are having fun, so this is already the sixth release of the series. and there is no hostages being taken here, because what you get is three straight bangers for darker and deeper dance floors, with that trademark sebastien san jack always keeping your feet and ears busy. >adrastea< kicks things off dark and dubby, churning away in devastating fashion for a full 12 minutes. one can easily imagine djs destroying berghain with this one. flipping over to the b-side we first find >120 bpm<, a track rooted in oldskool chicago jack with a healthy dose of claps and flangers that will be very hard to resist. closing the e.p. is >arp madness ii<, a very worthy follow-up of >arp madness<, which was a standout track on ab initio 02. intricate and devastatingly effective dance floor music.
nice price deal !!! its safe to stay that with every release on ab initio sebastien san raises the bar, and we can only hope more will follow! the first two releases on sebastien sans ab initio imprint have turned quite a few heads in the direction of the frenchmans sound universe. started as an outlet for his own productions ab initio is home to some of the finest work sebastien has put on vinyl in recent years. director to his own special style sebastien always succeeds in pleasing both house and techno lovers with pristine production and detroit-like sounds that are very much his own. the first two releases on sebastien sans ab initio imprint have turned quite a few heads in the direction of the frenchmans sound universe. started as an outlet for his own productions ab initio is home to some of the finest work sebastien has put on vinyl in recent years. director to his own special style sebastien always succeeds in pleasing both house and techno lovers with pristine production and detroit-like sounds that are very much his own.
nice price deal !!! after ab initio 04 comes…ab initio 05… sometimes it really is that simple! what is not so simple however is how sebastian san manages to always stick to his sound and still deliver one fresh release after another. the fifth installment of his own ab initio imprint is no different: three absolute storming tracks bringing you that typical vibe to make you lose your mind and body. >photonics< takes up the complete a-side, tweaking and twirling with heavenly chords and synths, it is one of those tracks you can play to really lock dancers into your groove. >horsepower< is a bit of a rougher affair with a serious oldskool chicago twist, but still very much sebastien san of course. >kepler 22 b< rounds off the e.p. in style with a minimal dubby workout that should have maurizio fans storming to the booth for a track i.d. in a matter of seconds. three different tracks, three times 110% sebastien san quality. bring on ab initio 06 please!
so here we are, ab initio 04 is upon us, with sebastien san pushing his boundaries once again. sebastiens sounds are his very own, situated somewhere in that crucial area between the deepest of detroit and the best of deep house. an area ruled by tight drum programming, heavenly strings and deep chords to die for. melody is key, melody that makes you dance and makes you listen. the force is strong in this one, and sebastien san sets the bar high once again!

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.
