grab the new s&c 005 record, a split 12inch by ender & stiletti-ana, put it on and lay down on your sofa. hear the opening groove from enders track p.l.i.h. and find your self getting up immediately to turn the stereo a little louder. adapt your self to the super tight, locked & futuristic and very original techno groove. watch especially out for the killer stab line in it as it is just something you will most likely find your self humming while shopping or taking your dog out. after the original mix of p.l.i.h. you will hear the stiletti-ana s stripped down version. he must have cut everything else out in his mix with his switch blade besides the ruthless stab line. dig the endless and ever growing stab jacking and remember that p.l.i.h side of the record is very serious and addictive for both club & home users. turn the record around and go back to your sofa. hear the twisted detroitian afro acid disco of stiletti-ana s track i got the master unit. filled with merciless synths and forcing rhythms i got the master unit leaves no questions of the keeper of that unit. the user of the unit seems to turn all things to the max and play midi tracks with tesla coil a like instruments. after the original it is ender s time to use the master unit and turn down the lights and ask the question: do you think that there will be something nice happening soon?
epic, cinematic & slow driving techno by stiletti-ana (half of helsinki s jesse duo). a-side s beat mix is straight tothe point but still climbs throughout it s entireness with harmonized arpeggio s and phased pads ? b-side reprises thetheme but with no rhythm, more ambience and differently filtered acid.
very cinematic, tunnel visioned & on-going arpeggiated synth-techno in two versions by stiletti-ana (half of jesse from last years twotinos lp on keys of life). a-side with steady kick and feedbacked percussions riding through a deep, analogic, cloudy and live drummed landscape. b-side highlights the scope with no drums, except the ever lasting cymbals.

randy barracuda & stiletti-ana present mlipuke! -mlipuke- is a misspelling of the swahili word for explosion -mlipuko-. explosive is also the word to describe the mixture of styles the finnish duo put together. the combination of wild afrobeat flavours and salty scandinavian funk results in a big bang of taste on the first bite. take the cosmic ride throughout three different interpretations of mlipuke and let the afro suomian energy flow! the remix of legendary british producer clatterbox adds his unique brain dance mystery to the explosive cocktail and makes it boil over!

*synthesizer is like a small animal stuck somewhere inside the machine.* - timo kaukolampi, k-x-p
machine soul is a documentary film about finnish electronic musicians. it is a glance at the methods, rituals and philosophy behind the music, but most of all at the burning passion that drives the artists forward year after year. machine soul tells the story of finnish electronic music scene from the artists point of view. the documentary is accompanyed by this limited white vinyl 12 inch release.
spring 2006 was both cruel and exciting. radiating hot helsinki nights, too much light and vivid, restless dreams about music. while chucking down a glass of cheap brandy in a local bar the idea finally materialized: lets start a record label! a label that would bring people together. proud people. people thinking of music. people doing their own thing in their own way in their own basements. and most importantly, people who understood the meaning of space between notes. after 5 years, 16 records, 85 tracks and 44 artists from 13 countries it goes without saying that those restless dreams became reality. and so did the music.
