sting gelingt mit dem in den londoner abbey road studios aufgenommenen -symphonicities--programm ein echtes kunststück. denn sowohl seine neuen und lyrischen komposition als auch ein new-wave-klassiker wie -next to you- - einst das erste stück auf dem police-debüt-album – fügen sich wie selbstverständlich in die soundsphäre der aufnahme. hier passt alles zusammen, persönlichkeit und idee, klang und ambiente, konzept und umsetzung, so dass -symphonicities- trotz des großen künstlerischen aufwands nichts von seiner authentizität verliert. das ist weit mehr als crossover und liegt nicht zuletzt auch an dem eingespielten team, das sting zur seite steht. denn sowohl das royal philharmonic concert orchestra unter der leitung von steven mercurio als auch die sängerin jo lawry als gast haben mit ihrer kompetenz dazu beigetragen, dass dem star des erwachsenen pops ein weiterer schritt in richtung stilistischer individualität gelungen ist.
sydenham steps with an essential summer soaked number in the old school way. >sting< is based upon a record from, mkl – a staple of the nyc house scene. it has the perfect beach tune vibes with a mild horn melody, cowling vocals and lightly skittering beats, that never get to hectic. just listening to the bubbly bass line can induce images of bikini-clad rumps shaking off the sand the hard way. a tick disco, a bit house, but one thing it most certainly does have is a whole lot of funk
if on a winters night... presents an arc of songs that conjure the season of spirits, the eerie silences of the snow, days of solitude and reflection for some, a time of rebirth and celebration for many.
brothers bud boldly return with a double dose of peak time finger lickin dopeness in the form of the sting/remedy. dom bud is the in house engineer for micky slims productions, so its no surprise that the electro flavours have rubbed off. the stings synth bassline buzzes and stabs amongst distinctly rolling rhythms, neither sitting in the breakbeat camp nor electro, just where we like it! on the flip remedy is pure finger lickin. clicking, disco stabs and cowbells, laced with fat drums and dreamy house vocals make this an essential addition to the ever expanding brothers bud armoury

2016 repress! the fourth installment of tiefenrausch comes by italian lad hydergine. with his playful dubtechno tracks he presents a strongly convincing ep on the label. winter solstice, warped chords, epic dubbyness and a hint of strings makes this piece a true journey through winter landscapes. space scan, pumping beats, rich chords and a fluffy groove makes you experience the depth of this ep. and last but not least reminiscient: calm, decelerated, relxaxed dub that one bitterly makes aware that this journey might end at some point.

to feel the future is to feel the fall into time. for the fourth instalment in tresor s kern mix series, dj stingray (urban tribe/drexciya) presents a device for decoding time in all directions, a sonic prism that refracts our senses into auxiliary components of a total future-rush. with a far-reaching selection that has been worked into his own unique form, dj stingray wraps our vertigo around a gritty pneumatic bump with high-velocity swing. his mixing style, prepared for hostile engagements as it is, throttles techno into counter-gravity forces. wading through a specialised cross-section of detroit s own dance-floor contagions as well as the contaminated feedback signals from across the global aqua plains, the mix can be summed up in just one word: hectic. raw, caustic, synthetic rhythm-code pumps frenzy itself through a cascading geothermal fog. never giving away the cryptographic keys, dj stingray works you harder than your heart, adapting your biology to a fractal timeline of viscous systems. discovery, or uncovering, has to do with what already exists actually or virtually, it is therefore certain to happen sooner or later with enough sweat in the club. and as kern volume 4 attests to, dj stingray has the access codes and the stealth sense to make a place of a space, and to let it fall into time. accompanying the mix is a double vinyl. the leading manoeuvre comes from the collaborative efforts of dj stingray and heinrich mueller under an exclusive nrsb-11 piece. seven more key titles of the covert assault make up this vinyl edition
shaddock 09 – people like me – comes courtesy of boost riders, alias of a well known hip hop producer from madrid. they deliver a classy and catchy latin freestyle tune featuring a prominent voice sample. -people like me- has been lying in our drawer for some time, it is a personal favourite and this track is the reason why shaddock records was founded. finally the time for its release is here – backed on the b-side by a mind-blowing and much darker electro/industrial remix by dj stingray.
ant plates vinyl only ventures continue unabated, taking a break from the yse saint laur ant releases and turning to minus the majors instead. whether its just plate in another one of his guises or not is unclear, but the music certainly fits in with the more exploratory, downtempo nature of previous vinyl only releases. he looked is an especially funky number that revolves around crafty beats and warm moog-esque synth ripples. things get more broken on jizz jazz, and then drongo manages to go even further out to sea in its quest for the perfect balance between funk and freakiness.
a punch-drunk polyrhythmic experiment that melds together fractured 9 bar loops of ailing machine sounds in two distinct trans-atlantic templates: one slung-low, unaffected & skittish from our stable monk-jack, the other a skittling, spectral tour-de-force from the masked sensei.
